Very private, gated, and walled in home is conveniently located just off the famous St Armands Circle. Newly renovated with marble floor and updated kitchen.
My family and I (4 adults, 2 children) absolutely loved this home and location. The house itself was very clean and had everything we needed. We noticed the toaster wasn't working properly so the owner promptly had that replaced. The location was perfect as my wife and her parents enjoyed the short walk to great shopping and I enjoyed the short walk to Lido beach. We had a double stroller for our two kids, so it was very easy to get back and forth to where we wanted to walk. The location also offered a very short drive to area attractions, such as the John Ringling Museum, Anna Maria Island and Siesta Key Beach.
I would recommend this home to anyone would will certainly stay there on my next trip to Florida!
This property was ideal for us - 4 adults and 2 children. Great location - walk to shops and restaurants and a short ride to a beautiful uncrowded beach!
The house was spotless, the pool great for small children and the house beautifully outfitted with everything we needed to cook inside or out!
We hope to return.
This home couldn't be more ideally situated! A block or two from St Armand's Circle which had ample shopping, dining, and night life it is also walking distance to the beaches of Siesta Key. We had 8 in our party with 2-3 cars and we had plenty of space for sleeping, entertaining, cooking, and dining. The pool was amazing and the shed comes fully stocked with pool toys and floaties as well as an outdoor shower. The hot tub, however, was not working. But we made due! Will definitely be renting this unit again to come back for business and to visit the wonderful locals we met!
Also, Jerry the owner is very available through phone and email and responds quickly. Definitely one of my better home away experiences!
my famil has spent the last week in this house. This house ismideally situated within walking distance to St. armand's circle with all the dining and shopping. The house is gated and can easily accommodate 6 cars though we only had 2 SUVs. Three bedrooms are comfy and two of them have bathrooms and private access to the courtyard. Pool was broken when we arrived but Jerry's pool guy was already on it and had it cleaned (last renters rinsed off all their beach gear in the pool instead of using outdoor shower) and ready to go by Monday morning. The kitchen is beautiful and had all the basics needed for cooking, just add food! This property is ideally located to zip on out for daily adventures, highly recommend!
This is our family's 2nd time renting with Jerry. First was last year @ his other rental 2 minutes away, both situated in great location to St. Armand's circle and the beach. The house was great! The kitchen was beautiful and spacious. The living room was very comfortable. The backyard was our favorite hang out when we had enough sun at the beach. There was plenty of space, chairs, loungers, cushions, pool toys, towels and a refreshing pool. The bedrooms were all comfortable and having their own bathroom was a bonus! 2 of the bedrooms had their own access to the pool.. very handy. Jerry was very accommodating and we look forward to spending another vacation at his properties. Our family had a fantastic holiday and our stay here made it that much more enjoyable.
The property is located just down the block from St. Armand's Circle! That alone makes it a very desirable unit. This was my 4th visit to the Sarasota area and being able to walk into town for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and shopping -- not to mention the beach being so close, was a real treat.
The owner, Jerry, was very easy to work with. I was surprised that there wasn't a contract or security deposits. He represented the rental well and the photos do show the unit correctly.
There were a couple of issues when we arrived. One was the master bathroom had a broken faucet that was in the middle of repair so we couldn't use that sink. The shower door in that bathroom was also impossible to close -- it needs replacement. The good news is there are 3 bathrooms in total so that helped. Jerry had a plumber come immediately to fix the sink faucet. We left the plumber the key and he fixed the faucet. That helped.
The beds weren't made --- just sheets stacked on top of each one. My girlfriends weren't happy about that! The bathroom in the master wasn't very clean.
Also, Jerry said he didn't realize that we'd be there on the 31st, he thought we'd be there on the 1st. I thought that was odd because all of our correspondences said the "31st." He had even stated that in my last email explaining how to gain access to the unit. It wasn't a problem, just odd.
Jerry also mentioned to me (once I called him to tell him about the faucet) that the hot tub isn't getting hot. I said, "oh, maybe the plumber can check it out." He said that the pool and hot tub were "bonuses" and not really included in the unit. I thought that was odd because they were in the photographs and clearly show and mentioned them as extras. The hot tub ended up working and got up to 102 degrees -- simply lovely. The pool was solar heated and worked really nicely. We used the solar blanket to keep the pool warm.
The shed housed pool toys (we didn't need those!), beach chairs, umbrella, etc. That was a real bonus! There were also plenty of beach towels in the unit, which was really nice.
The kitchen is state of the art. Beautifully decorated, great appliances. We found plenty of dishes, silver ware, cooking equipment, etc.
We also loved the fact that there was a gate we could close at night. It gives you a little more of a secure feeling being on a busy street corner.
All in all, a good unit with good amenities and GREAT location!
2 min walk to St. Armands Circle and a 6 min walk to Lido Beach.
