Newly renovated and available for your vacation. A live-oak canopy gives a tree house feel throughout this charming and centrally located 2 story home on the beautiful Cultural Coast of Florida.

The four bedrooms are beautifully appointed with the downstairs master a romantic 4 poster queen, the second bedroom with two twin beds.

About Kim Pitts

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

Why Kim Pitts chose Sarasota

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.

What makes this house unique

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.

Great vacation home

  • 4 of 5

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.

Very nice house in a good neighborhood

  • 4 of 5

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.

multiple generation family getaway

  • 5 of 5

We went down for a family reunion and it was perfect. Quiet and next to the park gave a lot of room for entertaining. Very clean and up to date, top of the line appliances and tv/cable/wifi. Beds and pillows were comfortable. The 4 bedrooms allowed grandparents to each have their own room, two teenagers in the twin beds and my husband and I in the king. We literally brought clothes and bought some food and the house had everything we needed to cook and do laundry. Owners were very nice and they thought of everything, even beach towels! This location was so nice to come back to after going to the beaches, shopping etc. you truly felt like it was a vacation getaway, we would rent again in a heartbeat!

Great area in lovely neighbirhood

  • 5 of 5

This home is just the kind of Florida cottage you need for that month in the sun. Kim and her husband are wonderful people and we would stay here again except we bought our own place. Close to everything, nicely decorated, great yard for the dog and out your front door is a great park with wild fowl, a fenced in dog park and a wonderful walking neighborhood.

Family Getaway

  • 4 of 5

Wonderful house and location. The house was exactly as it looks in the pictures, very well kept and up to date. Wonderful for a family with a pet. We had a great stay, the park was convenient to the house and perfect for morning and evening dog walks. Location was very quiet, peaceful and only a very short drive to Siesta Key a wonderful white sand beach.
