I met my husband over 32 years ago in Sarasota and decided that here I would stay. Ross is a native Sarasotan who showed me the beauty of Sarasota thru catamaran sailing the Gulf waters and canoeing the Myakka and Peace River Eco-systems. We have lived in this neighborhood for a combined total of 83 years and continue to call it home. We take pride in our rental property as evidenced with its amenities and comforts.
Kim Pitts purchased this house in 2010
The many live-oaks on and around the property were planted by my husband and his family 60 years ago. They offer cooling shade in the summer afternoons and host to a variety of wildlife, including hawks, woodpecker varieties and songbirds. The nearby park is home to egrets, waterfowl, turtles and ibis. Evenings are perfect for a stroll with a well lit pathway and water fountain. There is a playground at the northwest corner of Arlington Park past the Olympic pool facilities that are available to the public for 4.00 per person per day.
The neighborhood is welcoming and pleasant and situated minutes from all the amenities that make Sarasota a special destination for vacationing, top ranked education and much more.
My wife and I and our three miniature schnauzers just returned home after a month stay at this property. This is our fifth year spending February in Sarasota, but our first time in this home. Previously we had rented on Siesta Key. Not being beach goers, we decided to stay in town and avoid the beach traffic. This home was a great choice. The house is a charming Cape Cod with two bedrooms and a bath on the main level, and two bedrooms and a bath on the upper level. The house is nicely decorated and has been updated. One big plus is being just one house away from a large park. There are large and small dog areas and a half mile walking trail. We enjoyed early morning walks in the park and walking our dogs there. Another big plus is that the landlady, Kim, lives only two houses away. She provided lots of useful information and checked often to make sure everything was going well with our stay. This past month was unusually warm, and the A/C and ceiling fans kept the entire house comfortable. We had a great stay and have signed up to come back next year.
The house is a typical Florida cottage located near Arlington Park and close to the center of Sarasota. The owner spent an hour with us to give an orientation & was responsive to our questions over the next several days. This personal touch was greatly appreciated. In sum, the house was easy to get to & from and easy to stay in. We had a full range of working appliances (from an Osterizer to a washer/dryer) & a private backyard & pool (which we didn't use because the weather was uncooperative!). There were plenty of sheets, towels, pillows, blankets -- everything needed. The first floor has a central A/C; the upstairs has individual units in each bedroom.
Owner moved us into her additional rental house next door so we did not have to deal with debris in backyard after heavy rains, and that house was right on Arlington Park, with a larger patio and back yard. We found everything we needed in the kitchen; the house clean and well organized; the location quiet, and ideal for our dog. We stayed two weeks, and highly recommend the place!
We were in Sarasota for the first time for a family wedding. We rented this home and the home next door from Kim. They were close to everything, but out of the usual sounds of a city. The park was nice and so handy...great for walks and to admire the lush Florida plants and flowers. The beautiful Siesta Key beaches were minutes away. The home had all the amenities: stocked kitchen, coffee, paper products, linens and even beach towels, which was very nice.The pool was nice with lots of patio furniture. The home was clean and well maintained. I would have given 5 stars, but we had an issue with the hot water the first day. We called Kim and she did get it fixed later in the day. Yoders restaurant was close and soooo good. We would definitely stay there again.
The real rating of this property would be 4 1/2 stars. The house was very clean, had an interesting decor with paintings by the owner, was located next to a great park and was only a 15 minute walk from the great Hillview restaurant area. (Also a short drive to the downtown area or the beaches.) The four bedrooms offered a variety of beds (sizes and firmness) while the kitchen was well-equipped. Nice backyard area for swimming in the pool, reading a book or catching a quick nap. The only minor complaint was the lack of space (shelves) in the bathrooms for our stuff. Would highly recommend this house.
