Overview

About the property

Luxurious and relaxing 3 bedroom, 2 bath, sleeps 6-7 comfortably.

We refer to this Florida Home as 'Goldy Lox's West Wing on Bermuda Brook.' This comfortable mid-century Florida home is located central to all things Sarasota. We chose this home for its location and ease of access to beaches, downtown, shopping and restaurants. The home is easily accessed between Interstate 75 and coastal route 41. Southgate is a comfortable and sought after established family community in the center of a great Florida mid sized city. We do not permit "wild" parties. The east wing is used by the owners. More on that later.

This beautifully decorated 3 bedroom, 2 bath home has everything you will need for an enjoyable stay. Our kitchen and baths have been upgraded to anticipate your needs. The property has undergone landscape renovations recently with future plans to be unveiled in the coming year.

The home has 3 entertaining areas. The Living Room with down filled sofa, two seater chair, TV, DVD, stereo, all with wireless surround sound. The Bar Room features a hand crafted bar, beverage refrigerator and 40' LED flat screen TV.

The new sitting pool is partially above ground creating additional sitting areas around its perimeter. It is totally screened in and furnished with table, chairs, infrared BBQ grill and a 32' LED flat screen outdoor TV.

Private Laundry room and visitor storage off the Kitchen included.

The owners maintain and reside in the attached in-law conversion apartment, referred to as the 'east wing', when in town. The home is appointed as a reflection of the owners comfortable and relaxing attitudes.

Best month in Florida

  • 5 of 5

My sister and I enjoyed a wonderful month at Bermuda Brook. We found the house spotless upon arrival with paper goods and supplies for our use. Laura and Lee, the owners, were extremely helpful whenever we needed them for anything. They were the nicest people to deal with. It's a great property for entertaining or just relaxing quietly. We highly recommend this home for a great vacation experience. No one leaves disappointed, just sad to leave. Thank you for your attention to detail and making our month memorable. Camille and Louise

Owner's Response: Wow, how nice of you two to comment on the cleanliness of our home. After meeting your friends and spending time with them we found out that both of you are obsessive cleaners. We take great pride in your praise. We will miss you.

Nice, clean, well appointed and centrally located.

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed here for 3 nights. We had a wonderful time relaxing and visiting family in the area. The place was very clean, everything we needed was available, the hosts were wonderful, and the place was close to all of the activities we wanted to do. Would stay here again! Thank you!

Owner's Response: It was great meeting all of you. We were so glad that we could accommodate everyone: with the crib for the baby, the pool area for relaxing and the ping pong table for those competitive family moments. We would love to have you anytime.

Super Sarasota

  • 5 of 5

The house was clean, comfortable, well decorated and appointed. The bedding was very good and the furniture was inviting (not what you sometimes find in pet friendly). It seemed that everything was thought of right down to the dog crate. The house was furnished with an abundance of linens for home, pool and beach. The kitchen was fully stocked for cooking and serving and there were TV's everywhere. The pool was a nice bonus as we were traveling with grandkids. I have been vacationing in Sarasota for 30 years and I can say that this house is central to most things Sarasota and it's close to I 75 making it easy to get out and explore Florida. The favorite thing for us was that it is only about 10 minutes to Siesta Key Beach, the number one beach in the world. Give this house a try, you won't be disappointed. Whether you are driving or flying in this house has everything you need.

Great property and great Sarasota location.

  • 5 of 5

This property was perfect for our long weekend in Sarasota. It is clean, sunny and family oriented. The location was perfect to get to the beaches and downtown Sarasota. A wonderful one mile (each way - 2 mile total) morning walk to Starbucks. The neighborhood is great and allowed runners a 5k circuit without needing to run the big streets. We will definitely stay here again. The owners were nice, accommodating and thoughtful.

Owner's Response: We are so glad that our home worked out for your whole family. We were instantly drawn to the house because of the space and the proximity to everything Sarasota has to offer. Of course some (lol) improvements had to be made to make it the perfect vacation place. Please visit again any time.
