About Christina Captain

I have lived in Sarasota since 1997 and I will be here until the end. I love SARASOTA! I am a Florida native, born and raised in Miami. I own a healthcare business here in Sarasota for the past 16 years. I lived at the magnolia house for 10 years and now I am offering it to travelers so they can experience the best Sarasota has to offer.

Christina Captain purchased this house in 1999

Why Christina Captain chose Sarasota

Clean, Quiet, Functional, Romantic, Close to EVERYTHING!

What makes this house unique

Location, location, location.

I love my house! I enjoyed it from 1999 to 2010.

Then I rented it as an annual for 3 years and then decided that I wanted to offer it as a vacation rental. I am a business owner here and believe that Sarasota is quite possibly the most wonderful place in the world to live. I want you to enjoy Magnolia Street as much as I did and love Sarasota as much as I do!

Great location, Can walk for many daily needs.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 6 weeks...it's a great home away from home. Close to multiple restaurants, coffee shops, publix and Trader joes. Nice neighborhood, met a few neighbors. If you want sun you can sit in the front yard, if you have sunburn from a day at the beach the fenced in backyard has many trees for shade. We already rented again for next year.

Comfy, Quiet and Close

  • 4 of 5

My 87 year old mother and I stayed here for 4 days while visiting Sarasota this winter. The house was well equipped and we were thankful for a great heating/ac system as it was quite cold! The owner has thought of most everything and we were easily able to cook our meals there. We were a short drive to a great gourmet grocers and downtown was super easy to get to as well. I imagine the house is awesome in summer too as the backyard is very shady and private, but it was too cool for us this visit. Very clean and comfortable, for 2 separate adults, or for a small family. The neighborhood is sweet and fun to walk around in too.

Great Location

  • 5 of 5

I rented this home for a friend of mine and it was perfect. The location is awesome, within walking distance to shops and restaurants and Southgate mall. Only a short drive to world class beaches.

The bungalow was cozy and equipped with everything needed for a pleasant stay. The backyard is fully fenced and private and a peaceful place to enjoy the outdoors.

Will rent again.

Sarasota vacation rental

  • 5 of 5

Great location for this perfect house. It had everything that we needed, and was very well maintained. I enjoyed spending time on the back enclosed porch enjoying the beautiful yard. We were able to walk just about 7 blocks to a nice area with shops and good restaurants. The mall is also less than a 5 minute walk. Downtown Sarasota is a 5 minute drive as well. Christina greeted us with a bottle of wine and some delicious candy. She arrived when we got there and showed us all around the house and gave us helpful vacation information.

Our stay in the Magnolia Street home

  • 5 of 5

Thank you, Christina, for a nice January in your Magnolia Street home. We found that it was exactly as advertised; very clean, & equipped with everything we needed. We especially liked the fenced in back yard & the "garden of Eden" patio. We found that it is within walking distance of many things such as cafe's, grocery store &. postoffice. We would recommend it to others as a perfect place to vacation.

Time Out

  • 5 of 5

Bungalow on Magnolia was the perfect destination to spend a pleasant week. Upon entering

the door we were presented with a wonderful "Home Away". And we were to find out how close

places were to the house and in walking distance if we so desired. We did shop and eat in several of them. Publix is very close by and eating at the Oasis, and The Bonefish Grill. The house had all we needed to keep us satisfied for the length of our stay. And eating in was no problem with everything needed for cooking and eating.

The bed was so comfy and restful sleep came in no time sat all.

The back yard was lovely. Had never seen bamboo growing in so many clumps and in the sizes of the bamboo. Interesting.

Sad to have the week come to an end, but all good things must come to an end and it did.

But hopefully we may make it back to your lovely home.
