Amazing House for Vacation and/or Special Occasions in Sarasota

  • 5 of 5

We came to Sarasota from cold New York to have a wedding ceremony on the beach (which turned out to be on beautiful Anna Maria Island) and booked this house for our entire stay. We had a choice between this house and 2-bedroom apartment right on Siesta Key and we were blessed to have selected this house.

When we arrived to this house our jaws dropped. This house was absolutely gorgeous. It was so clean with brand new flooring, appliances, furniture, décor (which is beautiful), etc. The feeling is that you stepped into just renovated house with extremely inviting ambience. The owner of this house did an amazing job with all the details which made this house very attractive. Rooms are conveniently located: Master Bedroom in one part of the house and two bedrooms in the other part which in our case was the best - we as newly weds needed some privacy. We were cooking some meals at the house and it was enjoyable with all new appliances, utensils and a dishwasher (which is a big plus). There are two full bathrooms (with tubs) and one with the shower which was more than enough for our party of 4.

Another great feature of this house is its backyard with swimming pool and garden. There are beautiful plants and flowers growing there and we spent most of our time next to it. It was tranquil and very quiet. The pool was clean and taken care of very well.

The neighborhood where this house located is very safe and quiet. I have barely seen 2 people there for our week+ stay. Location is very convenient. All supermarkets and shopping centers located within 5 minutes drive, major attractions 10-30 minutes away. We were close to Jungle Gardens (10 min), Selby Gardens (15 min), Ringling Bros. Museum (20 minutes away), St. Armands Circle, Marina Jack, Myakka State Park (20-25 min), Mote Aquarium and other attractions which are all of it within comfortable drive distance. This town has many great restaurants also - we've been to four of them and weren't disappointed. Major beaches are also 15-20 minutes away. Siesta Key and other were so crowded and I am glad we stayed away from it and still had a convenience to take a short drive there.

I can't forget to mention the owner of this villa. She is very pleasant woman and it is a breeze to deal with her. She did everything to accommodate us the best she can and we had a wonderful wedding vacation in Sarasota thanks to her kindness and attention. We a dreaming to get back there and I wouldn't look for any other house!

Great location, spacious house and backyard, private, beautiful pool, very clean, safe neighborhood and located close to many beautiful beaches, major attractions, and restaurants.

The owner takes very good care of this property and is very customer service oriented. This house is described accurately and pictures reflect the true state of this beautiful property. This is a very spacious house which hosted my family comfortably (2 adults, 2 children, and our Shih Tzu) during our stay there in May of 2016. The open concept kitchen, living room, dining room and the family/TV room opens up to a beautiful pool and what gives you a very airy sense of this space. We especially liked the fact that this house has no carpets but only beautiful laminate wood-like looking floors. It allowed us to keep this house clean and dust free (as our daughter is allergic to dust). The bedrooms are also very spacious (master has a great walk-in closet) and the 3 bathrooms made it so easy for everyone to get ready for the day at the same time. The backyard is landscaped nicely and the pool was maintained by the pool person on regular bases. It was such a pleasure to relax in this private and beautiful backyard. This property is located in a nice and safe neighborhood. We greatly enjoyed morning walks with our coffee through this neighborhood and meeting very friendly neighbors/residents. The location of this house offers you a 5-10minutes drive to multiple prime beaches, various Sarasota attractions and great restaurants. In the evenings, we especially enjoyed going to Armands Circle and dining at the Venezia restaurant. You must try their pizzas. Siesta Key downtown also offers great restaurants and a fun way of spending your evenings there. If you are looking for a quality rental property in a nice neighborhood with a central location, you should definitely reach out to Luda (the owner). You won’t be disappointed! We can’t wait to stay at this property again soon. 

Winter Retreat

  • 5 of 5

This was our first experience with VRBO and it was a very positive one! The house, inside and out, was exactly as portrayed in the pictures provided. The house was well appointed and accommodated all of our cooking and bbqing needs. Although not a large house, its layout gives many options for both privacy and communal activities. The guest area (two bedrooms and 4 piece bath) can be closed off completely. This allowed our son, daughter-in-law and 10 month old grand daughter, who joined us for a week, complete privacy. The pool, located in a very private, well-cared for yard, was lovely; perfect temp and maintained weekly, and was well used by us. It is definitely the highlight of the house. The house is also very centrally located, about 4 minutes drive from downtown Sarasota, and only minutes from Siesta Beach. The owner, Luda, was very welcoming and responsive to any of our needs, while at the same time respectful of our privacy throughout our stay. We especially appreciated her willingness to accommodate our four-legged family members. Although not wheelchair accessible (washrooms), it is a great house for individuals with some mobility issues as it is on one level, no stair, and the main areas is predominantly open-concept. We would certainly rent this property again, if we return to the Sarasota area.

Vacation paradise

  • 5 of 5

We have been vacationing in the Bradenton/Sarasota area for over 30 years. This was our 3rd home rental in the last four years and it was our favorite. This house had all the comforts of home. It was clean and the linens were great quality. The owner Luda is very friendly and was available whenever necessary. The pool and back yard were well maintained. We enjoyed it immensely. The description of the house and location was accurate. The house was conveniently located to Siesta Key Beach and excellent dining and shopping. We highly recommend this vacation property and plan on returning next summer 2016.

Great House Excellent location Fantastic Pool in Private Backyard

  • 5 of 5

We just came back from spending the month of April at the newly renovated home in Southgate. The house is very comfortable and well appointed. The location of the home is fantastic it is so close to downtown, beaches, restaurants etc. The pool area is lovely and so private and quite. The owner of this home was wonderful to us from start to finish. She was a pleasure to get to know. She made our stay in Sarasota a wonderful experience. I almost forgot to say Mr T our cat had a wonderful vacation & misses Luda.

Pool Home in Great Location for Your Best Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This magnificent home is everything the listing describes. Location, location, location! The gorgeous pictures on VRBO. com and description are very accurate and we were thrilled about the modern bathrooms. We've stayed in some terrible places through VRBO, but this home is a gem. The kitchen, bathrooms, A/C, floors are brand new, and we loved the furniture and décor. The pool is just has been refinished and is sparkling clean. The pool heater was on and my wife and grandchildren enjoyed swimming and hanging around the pool area. The little kids loved the hammock and large pottery pots all of the garden. We found the house to be very comfortable, private, and well kept. The kitchen had all you needed to cook delicious meals! We dined outside because the weather in March was bliss! The washer and dryer were a lifesaver with all of kids’ clothing after the beach and playing outside.

And last of all, the management of this home is wonderful. From our first inquiry, to helping us when we locked ourselves out at 11pm - oops - to mailing back some items we left in the house (for free), the landlady and the manager were very kind and helpful. They responded to our requests ASAP. Everything worked well and we have enjoyed our stay beyond our expectations. Our small dog had a great vacation too – Louis liked to relax by the pool and would not go inside! We highly recommend this home for all of the above reasons and we will definitely be back.
