About the property

2 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom, Sleeps 4

This 3rd floor corner unit is exceptionally bright and airy with views of the 2nd hole fairway and green. Relax on the lanai or in our nicely appointed living room, featuring 42” hi-def TV with DVD, leather couches, and a separate work area with PC and hi-speed WiFi access included for your use. Fully equipped kitchen and dining room are perfect for entertaining or quiet meals at home when you don’t want to visit one of the many fantastic local restaurants.

The master suite provides a queen-sized bed, TV, walk-in closet, and full bath with a spacious shower. Step directly on to the lanai for the morning breeze.

The second bedroom features a king-sized bed that can be split into two twins, if desired. Separate full bath includes clothes washer and dryer and tub/shower combo.

Play golf on the Arthur Hills-designed 18 hole course that is both fun and challenging for all levels of play.

A fully equipped fitness and exercise facility is also available at the clubhouse. (If you plan on playing much golf, ask us about the full membership transfer available for a $250 fee. The membership provides greatly reduced greens fees all year round, plus reciprocity at dozens of local courses may through October.)

About Bob Virzi

Bob and Lisa Virzi live in Massachusetts and enjoy coming to Florida whenever we can.

Bob Virzi purchased this condo in 2010

Why Bob Virzi chose Palmer Ranch

My wife Lisa and I spent a lot of time in Sarasota when my mother lived there. We fell in love with the place and bought our condo so we could enjoy it now that she is no longer there. We love the many beaches, bars, and restaurants that allow us to find 'just the right place' for what we're looking for. From fine dining at Patti George's on Lido to live music and a breeze on the beach at Spanish Point.

What makes this condo unique

Because it is a third floor corner unit, we have vaulted ceilings and light pouring in from the western exposure that most units don't get. During the cooler months, open the windows to get a refreshing breeze in every room. We both love to cook, so the kitchen is well equipped for those nights when we eat in. Our philosophy is that guests should use what they need from the pantry, but replace what they finish for the next guest.

Stoneybrook golf and country club is a gated community with a challenging Arthur Hills designed 18 hole golf course, community swimming pools, har-tru tennis courts and a well equipped fitness center. Our large clubhouse has a full service restaurant, grill room and pro shop.

The condo is just a 7 minute drive from siesta key, consistently voted one of the top beaches in the US. The condo is fully equipped with coolers, towels, beach chairs, and umbrellas to enjoy the beach.

Among the many attractions of Sarasota are its proximity to the arts. The famous Ringling museum of art is here. Sarasota has its own opera company, its own symphony and its own ballet company. In addition there is the van Wezel performing arts center where world class entertainment and Broadway musicals are regularly scheduled. We also are blessed with several theaters, including the renowned Asolo repertory theater, Florida's premier professional theater.

Disney world is an approximate two-hour drive, while Busch gardens is about a one-hour drive.

Bright And Airy Stoneybrook Golf Club Condo Overlooking 2nd Green
average rating of 5.0 based on 7 reviews

Beautiful apartment, very relaxing break!

  • 5 of 5

This was our 2nd stay at Bob's beautiful apartment...and we are planning on visiting again next year! Says it all really...the apartment is well laid out, very clean and is perfectly placed for beaches and eating out. Bob is a brilliant host and ensures that you have everything you need and responds to any queries very quickly. Stoneybrook is a lovely golf community and is extremely well looked after and my partner tells me the golf course is very good too!

Comfortable, Cozy and Great Location

  • 5 of 5

The condo is, as described, bright and airy! It was clean and had everything we needed for our 2 month stay. The pool is practically just outside the door and is a perfect temperature.

The community itself is lovely and well-tended with a great golf course and is perfect for walkers. Lots of walkers!

Our stay was so relaxing and comfortable and we fully intend to return next year.

The property manager and the owner were very accommodating and available for any questions.

A lovely spot in the sun

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent March & April in this condo. It was very clean on arrival and precise directions on setting up air conditioning, TV etc were posted. The pool, BBQ and Tennis Court areas are right out the front door. The people, Renters & owners, within the three condo building complex were all very friendly. We would go to Venice for blueberry scones or to downtown Sarasota for the Sat morning farm market. Just so much to see and do. Nagomis was our beach to relax but we also enjoyed a morning walk on the beach at Siesta key a well. The fact that we never had to contact the owner for help indicates how smoothly things went. I fully recommend this location.

A Great Rental

  • 5 of 5

The location of this well-equipped condo makes it an excellent choice for an active get-away. It is close to Stoneybrook's golf, pool, tennis courts, bike trails and walking paths; it is also an easy drive to Siesta Key Beach. Its lovely balcony view, as well as its helpful owner, were positives too. My highest compliment is to say that I hope to return.

Stoneybrook Golf Club Condo Overlooking 2nd Green

  • 5 of 5

We spent March and April in this lovely comfortable, clean condo. All appliances were in good working order. WiFi was Fios fast and an unexpected amenity was a DVD player connected to the internet which allowed us to stream movies instantly. Our favorite place was the screened-in lanai with a beautiful view and almost always a soft breeze allowing for quiet afternoon reading or entertaining guests. Our morning routine included walks around the perimeter of Stoneybrook with miles of pristine landscape, complete with a nature walk that allowed us to observe the inhabitants of the wetland area daily. The owner was very easy to work with, very responsive and asked repeatedly if we needed anything more to make our stay enjoyable. Sarasota is the best place to vacation in FL with access to many Gulf beaches as well as fantastic dining, great golf and many cultural opportunities. Stoneybrook is one of the premier communities in which to enjoy all of these activities. We were so pleased with our time spent in this condo that we plan to return next Spring. Whether it is staff or residents, you could not find a friendlier or more convenient community.
