About Marlene and/or Steve

We moved to Sarasota, Florida 3 years ago from New York City and never looked back. We love it here and know you will too!

Sunshine is wonderful, physically and mentally!!!! The restaurants and shopping rivals New York...no kidding.

Marlene and/or Steve purchased this apartment in 2012

Why Marlene and/or Steve chose Florida South Central Gulf Coast

Visited relatives in Sarasota and fell in love with the area and this lovely, safe, neighborhood. It truly is paradise with people from all over the USA and the world......warm and friendly atmosphere all around you.

What makes this apartment unique

We love our quiet, safe neighborhood, all the sunshine and the closeness to the beach. We enjoy walking, biking, boating, fishing and great 'chef owned' restaurants. We also love all the cultural events in downtown Sarasota.....P.S. The shopping is terrific too!

What a fun place!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here in October, 2015. My wife and I enjoyed our stay as it was a great place, bright and cheerful. We loved the outdoor space and BBQ. Walked the beach every morning. Lovely safe neighbor. Marlene and Steve , the owners, were really nice and very helpful. Loved Sarasota!

Even better than last time

  • 5 of 5

This is my second time staying here and the place is as cute as ever. Marlene and Steve were still helpful and eager to please The new driveway was very convenient and the new patio area was very welcoming. My little dog enjoyed playing with Grover.

The place is in a fabulous location, just a short drive to the beach and convenient to all Sarasota attractions

Wonderful Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My stay was wonderful. The apartment is just as cute as the pictures. My little dog Mickey loved cooling off in the pool. You couldn't ask for nicer people to deal with than Steve and Marlene. If you needed anything they were both always available. Grover, their dog is the sweetest dog you will every meet. He is truly a gentle giant and loved by everyone.

The area is very nice and felt very safe. Wonderful walking also and a very nice church a block away to let your dog play.

Can't say enough nice things about my 2 month stay. You won't be disappointed......Great, great location

Today is our last day, so sad. Great quiet neighborhood, walking distance to a nice park and the beach. Everything was as good or better than advertised, Steve and Marlene were great and very helpful. The apartment was very clean with a comfortable bed for sure. Grilled out a lot.

Great rental and such helpful and friendly landloards

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay in this apartment and would not hesitate to do it again or to recommend it to family and friends. It was the perfect size for two people and the private back yard was ideal for our dog Grover who, despite being 14 years old, loved to play with Steve and Marlene’s big dog Grover. The neighborhood was great for taking walks and bike rides and we met many very nice neighbors. Not to mention the daily morning and sunset walks to the beach (only a pleasant 20 minute walk if you walk slow). Look for beach access No 7 after you cross the bridge. The apartment had everything we needed for a happy month’s stay as we planned our pending move to the area.

Car: recommended

Located in a beautiful, quiet neighborhood just minutes from Siesta Key, away from the noise and traffic of the Key, and much more affordable. We are 20 minutes from chic downtown Sarasota shops and restaurants, and are 20-30 minutes from most local attractions, such as the Ringling Museum, Mote Marine Aquarium, Sarasota Opera House, Van Wezel Performing Arts Center, Selby Botanical Gardens, movie complex's and much more. We are minutes away from Gulf Gate restaurants and shops, with many chef owned/family owned restaurants serving a variety of Ethnic and American cuisine ....truly a 'foodie's' paradise. Within minutes we have a French Pastry Bakery, a German Bread Bakery, an Asian market, an English Tea Shoppe, a 'New York Style' deli, an Italian market and café, and some terrific pizza. We also have some world class steak houses and fresh seafood restaurants. As we like to say, 'So many restaurants, so little time' :)
