Florida South Central Gulf Coast House Rental Photos and Description

2 bed, 2 bath with a private lake. Beach a short drive away

Unpretentious house - slightly off the beaten track but central. The house is 1000 sq feet under air, but boasts a large lanai, a fenced in garden and a private lake - all of which contribute to exceptional value for money . Large enough to allow for guests - the house sleeps 4-6 comfortably. There is a queen bed in the master , along with twin trundle beds for spare visitors. The sofa bed in the living room serves as a double as well. There is one bathroom in the house and another shower room and toilet off the lanai - in the laundry room. This serves as spare bathroom if need be. We are pet friendly --- please ask. Owner- Agent

About Sam Azrak

Owner is a Licensed Realtor with Sunlit Realty , Fort Myers, 1342 Colonial Blvd, 33907

Sam Azrak purchased this house in 2013

Why Sam Azrak chose Florida South Central Gulf Coast

I fell in love with the private lake at the bottom of the garden. Simple as that. I find this property enchanting in more ways than one. A simple 1957 structure that harks back to a simpler less complicated way of life. For me- it's what vacation is all about. Simple living and unhurried schedules -- welcome to Sarasota!

What makes this house unique

Central , yet a self contained house as opposed to a condo. Apart from the view and lake - already mentioned - this house has charm. From the original floor to ceiling sliders, to the patio accessible from all sides, to the fenced yard and retro kitchen--still with great ammenities, but also the upgrades -- new high quality flooring and quality furnishings and bedding. Come see for yourself and please let us know your thoughts.

A perfect vacation

  • 5 of 5

I'm just getting to this review now. But my daughters, my best friend and I had a great idea of a girls trip for spring break April 2015(yes the trip was that great that I am writing a review now in Jan 2016). We searched for a place to accommodate us and no one was getting back to us! But Sam got back to us almost immediately. He provided a clean(and very stylish If I may add) home for my girls and I. The house truely felt like home to us. Not to mention the unbelievably comfortable King bed that gave me a great sleep every night. When I got home I told my husband we had to get a new bed because I've never slept that well in my life! Sam was attentive and always made sure to give us information and even with the distance, he never failed to keep in contact with us before are trip and on our trip! We will never forget our beautiful temporary home that we stayed in that year, the girls loved it! Thank you so much Sam, the house was a perfect stay and you were awesome throughout the whole process!

The only negative was the huge number of bugs at the front of the house. Luckily they did not come in the house. We enjoyed our stay. Thank you.

Owner's Response: Thanks Rita -- I should have told you that we exclusively use the side door and for that reason the front door is blocked off. Those bugs reside in the honeysuckle tree at the front and stay right there - thankfully as you put it. We got rid of them for you.

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

I have had a most pleasant experience working with Sam. He was prompt in contacting me and kept in contact with me during my stay. Sam is an owner who gives excellent service as well as provides a clean and very comfortable home experience. It is close to great food and all the sights in Sarasota. As far as a place for a doggie- there is a great neighborhood around the corner to walk dogs. A most pleasant experience indeed.

Truly Paradise

  • 5 of 5

This home is exactly as described and so much more! The location makes access to golf courses, beaches, parks, and the various Sarasota communities like downtown, the Keys, Gulfgate area, etc. easy and quick. The home has all the amenities, new, clean, functional and the lanai is a fantastic place to relax, eat, entertain. There are many nearby parks for walking the dog but the neighborhood itself is also a friendly, safe place to walk. We truly felt completely at home immediately, so much so that we plan to rent for longer next year. The landlord is responsive, helpful and very friendly. All in all this truly is a gem that enables you and your pets to live like home in sunny Sarasota.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for your comments. I also love this place for the very same reasons. Look forward to seeing you both next year. The fishing rods and beach chairs are at my house so rest assured...they will be safe and sound for your return!

Car: necessary

You will not be at a loss for things to occupy you in the Sarasota Area. Visit numerous beaches at Siesta Key, Nokomis and Venice; infamous for Sharks teeth..!! YIKES. There are plenty of local as well as chain restaurants. Shopping is plentiful -- or just while your time away...

For amazing, if somewhat pricey fare try Rossiters in Palmer's Ranch. Worth checking out also is the Ringling Museum with it's beautiful grounds , restaurant; as well as the theatre closeby. Downtown is an evening in itself. Burns Corner has an artsy feel and cool movie theater.
