Quiet Private Setting

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect vacation home for us. It is located in a quiet neighbourhood and with undeveloped lots on either side and backing on to a canal the pool and back yard is totally private. The home is very well appointed and well maintained. Highly recommended for anyone looking for a quiet getaway.

Exactly as described!

  • 4 of 5

Sue and Lou are exceptionally pleasant and quick to answer any questions or solve any issues , we had one of each. The first was me not being able to get the TV in the bedroom to work, a quick phone call later and their able neighbor resolved the issue. I hadn't checked the batteries in the remote! They were in backwards. duh. The second more serious issue was the water heater springing a leak ! This could have had a major negative impact on our stay but Lou keeps a plumbing service on call for emergencies and the leaking heater was replaced with a brand spanking new unit the next morning! Their home is warm, inviting and very clean. The pool and lanai were great for relaxing. The canal is interesting even though we saw none of those famous Florida alligators. If there was anything not just about perfect it would be that the beds were too soft for us both, we prefer a firmer sleep surface but we slept it off! All said , Sue and Lou provided a near perfect home for us to enjoy and we recommend their home to anyone seeking to enjoy a slice of Florida heaven.

Tranquil Canal Home

  • 5 of 5

The title is correct. This home is tranquil. It is located on a quiet street with a canal in back. Fun to watch turtles and an occasional gator swim by. Loved to have morning coffee on lanai listening to the birds and watching wildlife. Very peaceful, private and well equipped home. One of our favorite things was the fact that we could open the home for a beautiful breeze all day long. Only having to run air conditioning in the evening was so refreshing. The homeowners Sue and Lou were great to work with and always quick to answer any questions.The pool was wonderful. The solar heat is fantastic. We will return.

The tropical foliage tucked among a wildlife canal was majestic!! A safe zone amongst distant neighbors. Accessible to (N) Gulf beaches and (S) lovely BonitaSprings /Naples. One day trips to island resorts like Anne Marie and Sanibel islands makes it worthwhile. Not to mention the upscale consignments and outlets where one could shop till you drop. The location, household maintenance, owners' cumlauderee, diverse cuisines', truly make this a West coast paradise and bargain rental getaway!!

Don't want to leave!

  • 5 of 5

Today is Valentine's Day and I am half way through my month here. I don't want to leave! Today is a cool day, only about sixty, but the pool is so protected that I am sitting out here in my bathing suit enjoying the warmth and total tranquility this wonderful home provides. However, it has ruined me in a way, as now I will always want a vacation property with no neighbour on either side and one on the other side of the canal. The sounds of the birds in the morning make you feel you are truly removed from the traffic-laden roads of southern Florida. It's a wonderful piece of paradise! Thanks Susan.

Quiet, secluded and very relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

My fiancé and I stayed at the Sareta house for one week this past July. The house is exactly what we were looking for in a vacation rental—quiet, secluded and very relaxing. We spent most of our mornings in the warm lanai pool, which provides a spectacular view of the freshwater canal and its marsh birds and wildlife! The home is also a short drive from great shopping centers, as well as both Venice Beach and Englewood Beach where we watched the sunset together several nights. The home is immaculately clean, beautifully decorated, and has all of the amenities you and your family could ever need. Susan was also a dream to work with as we planned our vacation. We highly recommend the Sareta house and will be back!
