About Erin & Eric
We're both from the South. I'm from Florida, he's from Alabama. We love Florida's beaches and enjoy having pleasant weather all year-round. With careers in the military and foreign service, this home allows us to put down roots in a part of town that has it all: old Florida charm, downtown access to restaurants, shops, and culture, & proximity to the beach!
Erin & Eric purchased this House in 2013
Why Erin & Eric chose Gillespie Park
This home is a gem in a neighborhood of similarly restored historic houses affectionately known as the Painted Ladies of Gillespie Park! We loved the care and positive energy that the previous owners brought to the house and hope to continue the tradition. By inviting guests to enjoy the house, we hope the home will continue to be filled with love even during the times we're unable to enjoy it ourselves.

Cute, convenient, but a little dusty
Very convenient, walkable, safe neighborhood. Home was comfortable and had everything we needed. Only negative was blinds and baseboards were dusty.
We're very glad you enjoyed our home and the neighborhood. We appreciate the feedback on the condition of the blinds and baseboards. We'll be sure to work with the cleaning service to be more thorough in the future.
Very charming! House is quaint and roomy, the neighbers were very friendly!
Wonderful location to everything we wanted. We rode bikes or walked to downtown for restaurants and shopping as well as enjoying the sites at the marina and parks alone Sarasota Bay. Lido Beach was a 7 minute drive. Siesta Beach was a little further to drive but if going down Osprey instead Tamiami, it only took 15 to 20 minutes. Restaurants everywhere had delicious food. We brought our dog and she enjoyed walking around Gillespie Park.
We were happy to host you and glad you made use of the bicycles, parks, beaches, and restaurants. Sounds like you enjoyed all our favorite spots! Hope we'll get to welcome you again.
Cute downtown home
The Tangerine house was perfect for my husband and I plus our poodle. It had a perfect location and was stocked with everything you need. It had a garage and we were able to put our Honda Ridgeline truck inside. The beds were comfortable and it was very clean. The location was perfect. You can walk to the grocery stores ( Whole Foods) and walk to the restaurants. A wonderful place is the Rosemary Café. We even walked to the Marina. I took our dog out to the park every day which was 2 blocks away. There is a carriage house which can have a tenant and it was occupied when we were there. There was not a problem with privacy. The internet was super fast which we really appreciated. If we come back to Sarasota we would stay there again.
We would welcome you back anytime! We're happy that you were able to take advantage of the neighborhood's location and amenities to make the most of your vacation in Sarasota. Thank you for treating our home with care and sharing insights about your experience.
Cute little house in excellent condition. Very nicely furnished,.
Close to Main Street Sarasota. Our immediate area was very nice. Having the carriage house occupied cut down on privacy just a bit but that was not a problem for us, The property managers were very helpful and responsive. Overall, Tangerine Dream worked out very well for our February stay.
We're so glad that you enjoyed your stay, the house, and the neighborhood as much as we do. We're also very lucky to have a great property management team. We know the new carriage house means a shared driveway/grill area, so we did our best to create distinct outdoor spaces for each home with the porch for the carriage house and patio for the main house. It is good to know that the home worked well for you guys and we wish you warm memories from Florida.
All the best,
Erin & Eric
Old Florida Classic
Underscoring previous reviews about the location in a charming old Florida neighborhood. Great walks to Main Street, Fruitville Avenue shopping, and the Regal 20. Impeccable inside, well equipped kitchen, very comfortable beds and furnishings. This house has been sensitively upgraded and adapted from its 1920's origins. Publix Market is a three minute drive. The Rosemary and Station 400 restaurants are excellent and a seven minute walk away. All around a great place. Two bathrooms for two bedrooms is a bonus. The property managers are attentive and responsive.
We're so glad to hear that you enjoyed our home and neighborhood. Thank you for taking the time to share highlights from your stay. We'll pass on your kind words to Carl and Marie, too. We're lucky to have such great property managers.
