Why Darcy Church chose Florida South Central Gulf Coast

Darcy fell in love with the home because it was recently renovated and close to the beaches, The pool was the real selling point for my children! With its close proximity to the beaches, shopping and dining I couldn't resist. It is located in a quiet family oriented neighborhood.

What makes this house unique

I love the open floor plan, the large windows that let in lots of sunlight and the fact that there is a great fenced in yard to enjoy. The pool and patio area are wonderful for relaxation. It is located in a well established family oriented neighborhood. The quiet nights are so peaceful.

Nice place in a nice area

  • 4 of 5

This place is nice. It could use more furniture and more decorations on the walls. Also found dishes would be a problem if more than 3 people were in the house. The weather was great so we enjoyed the front patio. You are close to things. We rode our bikes in the neighborhood. We recommend this place.

Quiet& comfortable

  • 4 of 5

This home is about a 20 minute drive from anything you want to do in Sarasota. The neighborhood is quiet and walkable, and the kitchen is well supplied. Our dog loved the back yard and loved chasing the neighborhood cat through the fence hole. It was too cold to use the pool (which could have used a little scrubbing on the edges) but the backyard was inviting!

The bedrooms were very spacious and comfortable. The living area could use some more furniture or carpeting.

Overall we were quite satisfied with our stay except for the occasional frightening shudder of pipes in the master bath. Just don't flush if anyone is sleeping!The owner was very kind and responsive.

Owner's Response: I am happy to read that you enjoyed your stay at my Sarasota home. It is very conveniently located to many restaurants and shops as well as the infamous Siesta Key. Since you stayed I have hired a new pool service who is much more diligent and responsive which should eliminate the pool cleaning issues you experienced. Thank you so much for choosing my home. I hope to welcome you again as my guest in the future.

Clean and quiet Sarasota home

  • 4 of 5

This property is located in a quiet Sarasota residential area. It was very clean with excellent beds and bedding. The kitchen had enough utensils and cooking pots. However, it needed a larger than motel size coffee pot and a few more coffee cups.

A few hooks in the bathrooms would be very handy.

The yard was large and private. It was fenced in, but the fence was quite sad with many openings where critters could come in or out.

The Legacy biking trail is not far as well as other biking areas. It is not a long ride in either direction to beautiful beaches and fishing piers.

Our disappointment was with the very clean large outdoor pool. We knew it was not heated and we were there Ian Jan., but we had hoped it might be warm enough for a few laps. It is shaded most of the day and large tree branches prevent much sun to come through. A heated pool would make this property very enjoyable.

Convenient place to stay

  • 4 of 5

We were moving our daughter into her dorm, so we had the comforts of home while we made this transition. The home is 15 - 20 minutes from almost everything. Mote Marine Laboratory and Aquarium was a fun place to visit. The property manager was extremely flexible and accommodating.
