About Phil Falcone

Full time professional property owner and manager. Consider when renting, you want the owner to earn his livelihood taking care of tenants. This is all i do and all I ever want to do. I spare no expense to make sure your vacation is everything you wanted.

Phil Falcone purchased this house in 2012

Why Phil Falcone chose Sarasota

Being just off the key is the choice place to be for most experienced area visitors. During the winter there is too much traffic and off the key is where you will need to go for most things in life. Be close to everything! 10 minutes in any direction will get you to the beach, mall, movies, highway, great dining etc.

What makes this house unique

Guestbook comments from the owner

As we were leaving the North East in December, we had 2 layers plus winter jackets. Just after arriving in Sarasota, we were sitting on Siesta Key beach, with the whitest sand I have ever seen. Unlike anything up here at the Jersey Shore. I have been to Key West and Key Largo before, but never knew that Florida had Keys on the Gulf side.

The house was nicely decorated and clean. The beds were comfortable. Didn't watch TV much, but there was a Blue Ray with Netflix and a mix of DVDs.

We ate out some nights, but having a nice kitchen to prepare meals certainly saved some money. We stocked the fridge with groceries from the new Trader Joe's that recently had opened. Neat place.

I found the location to be very convenient. Easy to get to the beach or downtown. I recommend hanging out at the Siesta Key Oyster Bar ("The SKOB") at least once for the Live music at night and good food. Also be sure to check out St. Armand's Circle.

Overall a great trip. Coming back home to the cold was rough.

P.S. If you are renting a car, fly into Tampa (TPA). It's about $100 cheaper than SRQ Airport (The cost of a rental car)

Bentley Residence 2 bedroom, 1 bath w/fenced in yard

  • 3 of 5

We love going to Sarasota and Siesta Key Beach. When we arrived, we noticed several wasp nests attached to the carport and all around the house which we knocked down with a broom. The washer and dryer broke the first day we used it, however the owner was very prompt in replacing both. The house really needed a good cleaning. I mopped the floors, dusted the air vents and ceiling fans. The bathroom sink would not drain properly and we purchased a cheap wand to clean the hair out of the drain. We did not make the owner aware of the uncleanliness of the residence. However, I feel they should definitely find a new house cleaning service. Although, new pots were purchased (because we saw the box in the garbage can), the kitchen could have also used some additional baking pans. I also had to go to the Goodwill and purchase a cheap hand mixer as there was none. Again, the owners may not be aware of these issues. This is more a property management issue I feel. The neighborhood was very quiet and it was centrally located to stores, restaurants and not too far from the Siesta Key Beach. You will need a car in order to get to these places as they are not within walking distance. We rented thru Homeaway and it was easy and affordable. I hate to sound negative about this property, but I feel I do have to be honest in writing these reviews.

perfect home away from home

  • 5 of 5

This centrally located comfortable 2 bedroom was great for our trip. Good natural light. The fully furnished kitchen was perfect for preparing meals. The neighborhood is clean and quiet. very easy to get to the beach or in town attractions. I recommend this accommodation as the price and convenience are a bargain.

Excellent home! Perfect place to stay. Customer service 5 star

  • 5 of 5

We had the most enjoyable time while staying at this home. It was clean, the beds were comfortable, the kitchen had all the amenities we needed to make some meals, the location was perfect--close to the beaches and also to town. We had fun exploring the different beaches, finding shells, and trying different restaurants. If you want an amazingly good homemade pie, make sure you try Yoders! The owner gave us privacy but was immediately available when needed. Customer service was outstanding. The neighborhood was quiet and we felt safe. We will definitely come back next time we come to Sarasota.

Vacation Home Away from Home

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time in the Sarasota area. The house is conveniently located near restaurants, shopping and not far from Siesta Key, Lido Key and other beaches. I loved the car port, specially when it rained and kept the car cool from the sun. The house is very comfortable and clean and big enough for a family. We did not need to take pack beach chair, they were provide for us. We highly recommend this location, we will most definitely book here again in the future.

Great dollar value

  • 4 of 5

This property is charming and located in a quiet neighborhood that is easy access to the amazing Siesta Key Beach, several other beaches, shopping, and points of interest. The property was clean and well kept. We had our dogs with us and this house was easy to keep clean with no carpet and the neighborhood includes a dog park. The owner responded promptly when informed of problems, even after business hours. We had a problem with the Internet which was promptly addressed and the dryer quit working and was replaced immediately. The neighborhood felt very safe and we walked to the Yoder Market which is a delightful place to purchase fresh fruits and vegetables, eat homemade ice cream and pie, as well as a fun place to watch people. A great place to stay!
