Sarasota House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms + sleeping Den, 2.5+ Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

From the moment you arrive you will know that you have chosen the perfect house for your Sarasota vacation. Located in the centrally located south-gate area you will be only minutes from the beach as well as all of the cultural, entertainment and dining opportunities downtown. Mineola Drive is an extremely quite street with no thru-traffic on an island within the Phillippi creek. Towering live oaks and lush tropical plantings line the curved walk up to the front door and upon entering you will immediately be impressed with the roomy open-concept floor plan. Comfort and quality are key in this beautifully furnished mid-century modern Florida ranch. Large sliding glass doors along the living room and dining room walls open to a beautiful crystal clear swimming pool and a large grassy lawn that slopes down to the dock on the Phillippi creek. The Master bedroom with its tranquil colors and extremely comfortable bed boasts a fully tile bathroom en-suite with large walk-in shower. The second bedroom is bright, airy and Scandinavian in feel with its two comfortable new twin-size beds. It sits next to a second bathroom with tub. The den/third bedroom can be closed off with its french doors and has a brand new leather sofa bed where you can curl up to watch your favorite film or one of the scores of high-definition channels offered. The dining room has seating for eight around the glass and rattan table. In the living room a comfortable and cushy sofa along with several chairs surround a sea-grass area rug over original high-polished terrazzo floors. A stone fireplace adds to the ambiance. Chefs will appreciate the quality cookware, Cuisinart food processor and Kitchen-Aid mixer while preparing a delicious meal. Dine inside or out on the patio beneath the trees while the Florida sun sets to the west. A new deluxe gas grill and a cozy fire-pit are perfect for outdoor cooking and entertaining. Enjoy cocktails or a cup of coffee under the lanai while Snowy Egrets and Herons flock along the creek and wait for the resident bald eagle and great horned owl that frequent the area. On the far side of the pool area the four hole putting green is the perfect diversion for children and a great practice area for avid golfers. Of course there's a supply of clubs and balls. The laundry room with clothes-folding area houses a tiled shower lav. and sink for quick washes after an afternoon at the beach or after a kayak adventure through the mangrove trees along the creek.

Cool and serene, tasteful and tranquil, you will never forget your stay.

Great location and house

We enjoyed our stay at this home and everything you need is withing a couple miles. The house was great and the pool was very enjoyable. Everything worked as it should and we even had a owl calling to us every night at dusk. We booked again next year.

My husband, son and I had a great holiday kayaking and seeing Manatee, and Alligators further down the creek.

The house is very clean and well equipped. The pool is a godsend after the humidity of the day. Location is ideally situated for everything. O'Leary's bar by the sea, Marina Jacks piano bar, C.F Chang's restaurant, and The Cheesecake Factory in UTI. all highly recommended. We managed to have a sunset cruise via Stickney Point boat hire. Great sunset too. Wildlife amazing. Try Myakka State Park. If you can do the long drive 2hrs. Go to N.A.S.A Just out of this world, literally. So much to do, and so little time....

Summer Vacation 2015

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful vacation in this lovely home! It was very clean and bright and located in great neighborhood. We enjoyed the pool and kayaking in Phillippi Creek. In the mornings, we had coffee on the lanai and watched for manatees and ospreys. It was a quick drive to Siesta Key and to Lido Beach and downtown. The owners are very nice and quick to respond. I highly recommend this home to all!

Mad Men Meets Beach

  • 5 of 5

We adore the open, mid-century, "Mad Men" style of this home! It is stylish, well-appointed, clean, comfortable, and so peacefully quiet. Great furniture and comfy beds were a plus. All of the amenities are available for an action-packed or relaxing stay. My husband and I adventured the canals of the Phillippi waterway on the was a wonderful way to explore the waterfront properties of Sarasota. We even spotted some friendly manatees along the way! The home's garden and pool are well kept too and we enjoyed many quiet evenings on the covered outdoor patio. We have been coming to Sarasota fro many years and this is the best property we have ever rented! It's an easy drive to everything and great to have Trader Joe's nearby too! Thanks Jenny & Richard for a perfect getaway! We hope to see you next year too.

Lovely, comfy, perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful spring break in this Sarasota home. This place is immaculate and tastefully decorated. It is well stocked for whatever you want to do on your vacation. We flew in from Michigan so it was awesome to have coolers, lifejackets, fishing poles, and beach necessities. We took advantage of the bikes, kayaks, bbq and swimming pool ~ loved the pool! What a treasure to have a private swim any time of day. The work that the owner has done on the gardens is evident and impressive. We especially enjoyed the view from the den ~ absolutely lovely. I should mention the comfort of the beds and bedding. The master was a haven and it was nice to have an en suite. The homeowner was also available for communication before, during, and after our trip. We would visit this Florida home again.
