Great time and great place in Sarasota

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our month in this well appointed home. It is within a 10-15 minute walk to restaurants, shops, grocery store and pubs. We were able to cycle to Siesta Key beach in 25 minutes or drive in 5-10 minutes. The property pictures highlight the pool and hot tub, but a great surprise was how "PRIVATE" it is in the backyard. We would recommend this property to anyone and definitely stay again. The owners were very responsive to our requests.

Perfect place in a great Location

  • 5 of 5

We arrived to the house after a 7 hour drive to find everything is set up and laid out very nicely. All we wanted to do after that drive was just relaxed and that's exactly what we did.

The location of this house was great. Quiet neighborhood but very accessible to everything. The enclosed backyard pool and hot tub area was fantastic. We are used to staying at condos where pool is shared. Having your own pool is amazing.

Every room was immaculately clean. We had everything we would ever need or want. Perfect Vacation

Room to relax!

  • 4 of 5

Five adults and a baby enjoyed this spacious Florida home. The neighborhood was perfect for us, as we have family living less than a mile away. The area is quiet, peaceful…the action is close enough when you are ready for it and this is a nice retreat. Great to be able to pull the car into a garage (with automatic opener), keeping it out of the heat, and keeping us dry during the brief but intense summer downpours. The nice open layout was good for some elderly family members, just be careful on the nice tile floors when you come in from the pool, naturally they are quite slippery when wet. Having that pool right there in the backyard, enclosed in the pool “cage” was so convenient. It was well-maintained and everyone enjoyed it. The spa was ok, spas having their natural drawbacks. We used the gas grill once, it was reasonably clean and intact. The fully-fenced backyard was nice to walk the baby through, looking at flowers/foliage. It is a real Florida backyard, so grass is thin and there is a lot of sandy soil and ants. The pool deck had lots of seating options for reading, drying out, sunbathing and eating outside. There were even a few folding chairs if you wanted to go out beyond the pool cage. The house has a lot of windows, especially in the living room/family room/kitchen, which lends a bright and cheery feel. I loved this, but we had to get creative to get the bedroom dark enough for baby. It was great to have two king-sized beds. They were comfortable. Very good closet/dresser space in both bedrooms. Queen-size pull-out sofa was about what you’d expect. Air conditioning worked well, nice to have ceiling fans. Kitchen was huge, and had a bit of everything we needed in terms of cookware, serveware etc. Seating for six at the large quirky dining table, plus two more at bar stools at the counter. We really were glad to have the washer/dryer in the garage. There were more than enough bath and beach towels for the six of us, which is saying a lot! It was good to find some pool toys/beach toys in the garage, we added a few to the collection when we left. Never met Monika, but she was easily available, just a text or phone call away. A very comfortable place to come “home” to, spread out and relax.

Great House in a Great Area

  • 5 of 5

This property is just what you are looking for. Private home with pool and hot tub. Nicely screened off with plants for privacy. 2 bedrooms with two baths and a pull out couch. Kitchen is large and lots of room for making meals. Grill was great! Will consider going back next year!

Great lace to settle in and have fun near Siesta Beach

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay. We selected the house because it welcomed our cats, but found many, many reasons to enjoy it. The location is convenient to Siesta Beach without any of the chaos of the island itself. We routinely drove 10 - 15 minutes to Siesta beach to walk or to watch the sunsets. You can walk to cute stores and restaurants or drive into Sarasota or down to Venice for more choices. There is a large shopping center with an excellent supermarket 5 minutes away. A large new library is also in walking distance.

The best thing about this property is that the owners are so kind and so responsive to any requests. Although the house is older, it is well maintained and has everything needed for vacation living. There is a well equipped kitchen and an outdoor grill. The pool is new and perfectly maintained. There is a lovely hot tub. The fenced yard is totally private! It is a joy to sit by the pool or in the hot tub and see bright flowers and hear the birds.

The neighborhood is safe and quiet.

This is a true " home away from home.
