Amazing Summer in Sarasota!!
This place is truly a home away from home. Top floor, quiet, close to bars and restaurants!! Steve was always available for any questions. Amazing pool, well kept grounds, and plenty of parking!! Walk to Starbucks in the morning and publix right across the street!! Even a little coin operated car washing area with vacuum!! 2 comfy beds and a fully stocked kitchen. Enjoy!!
This property is ideally located. It is removed from the busiest areas which allows opportunities for relaxed morning walks, but conveniently located for easy access to shopping, restaurants, golfing and the beaches. I appreciate that it is a gated community and the area in general makes one feel safe at all times. The condo is well decorated and clean and the view from the lanai overlooks the pond and palm trees. Great place to vacation and relax.
My home away from home
I had to work out of town for several months. I found this condo on VRBO and was so glad I did! It had beautiful furnishings with everything you would need. I was staying alone so it was important I felt safe which I did. After a stressful day at work, I enjoyed sitting on the patio overlooking the water. There was a beautiful second bedroom and bath so when a co-worker needed to stay it worked out great. It made staying out of town so much nicer! The owner is so nice and goes above and beyond to meet any need and communicate after you check in that all is ok. Close to shopping center, restaurant and drugstore.
Excellent condo, a very spacious and comfortable place to stay in Sarasota.
We rented this condo for the month of February. As we walked in, we noticed that the place was well maintained and everything was shiny and clean. The condo was well equipped, TV in every rooms. Electric BBQ in the screened in lanai which overlooked the pond. The place felt like home, very comfortable and spacious. We had an issue with the phones which were on the premises when we arrived. I sent him an email to the owner to simply inform him that these were failing. Next thing I know, the phone is ringing and the owner was informing me that new phones were being purchased and sent to the condo by courier and that I should receive these in a few days. Unbelievable the service we got. We were also in walking distance from the Publix grocery store and three liquor stores, as well as fine restaurants. I highly recommend this place. You will love it too! Thanks Steve. :):)
