About Michel S

I LOVE Sarasota!!! And I would still live here if it weren't for meeting the love of my now we are adventuring together and meeting the MOST incredible as we travel! I too stay here every few months...I could never give up Sarasota completely...once you visit you'll see why!!

Michel S purchased this house in 1995

Why Michel S chose Sarasota

I could see past the yellow shag carpet and wool curtains...and now the home is just right!! Renovations are all done....the location couldn't be any better.. close to beach, shopping, bars, parks, biking trails, interstate and more.... when you come-explore what Sarasota has to offer!

What makes this house unique

The home is single floor living...So no stairs to climb! New metal roof just installed. Always breezy and pleasant. And sooooo much to see and do!!! Location, location, location!!!!! Just 5 blocks to restaurants, grocery and dairy queen!!!!!

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our weeks stay at this villa. Located in a quiet cul de sac and not far by car to the lovely siesta keys beach although some days we were happy to lounge by the pool and watch the kids playing in the pool. The house is well equipped with all that you would need for your stay and the house was nice and clean when we arrived. The villa is lovely and it felt very homely.

What more to expect

  • 4 of 5

We were there for 2 weeks. The house is situated in a quiet neighberhood. What's important for us when we rent a house, is the cleanliness and this house was top clean. We had everything we needed. We did not get the chance to meet the owner but the response to all our mails was very fast and effeciente.

Thank you Michel for sharing your house!

Great stay

  • 5 of 5

Michel was a great host, we did not meet her but she responded quickly to all of our questions. She was nice enough to coordinate an early check in and a late checkout on our departure day since our flight left Tampa at 6p. The house is very nice, most of it has been updated and looks great. The pool was so nice to have, the neighborhood was quiet and there are some great places to eat with a Publix very close by. We would definitely stay here again.

Perfect, absolutley perfect!!

  • 5 of 5

This place was fantastic. The house was beautiful, spacious, immaculate and the location was perfect. I just love the way the living room and master bedroom seemed to magically open up into the pool area. Having the bathroom easily accessible right off the pool are was also very handy for our kids as they pretty much spent every waking moment splashing around in the pool, while we sunned ourselves with a good book and watched them have fun. When they weren't in the pool we were tossing a football in the backyard which was ample and private. This house in in a quiet neighborhood at the end of a cul de sac and with a grocery store just a stones throw away and the beach just minutes down the road we found the location perfect for us. Michel was great to work with, our questions and concerns were dealt with promptly and very much to our satisfaction. Possibly the best thing I could say would be that we have been coming to Sarasota for ten years and we've never stayed at the same place twice BUT we are planning on staying here again for our annual trip to Florida next year.
