About the property

Villa in Sarasota, Florida Gulf of Mexico, America, USA - Peaceful Location, 15 Minute Drive To Nearest Beach

Located in a peaceful road in Lake Sarasota, this villa will provide you a 'home from home' holiday, sleeping 6 comfortably or 8 using the sofa bed. We cater for all the family and provide an extensive range of entertainment including books, videos/DVDs, games and a music system. We have also a high chair, cot and swimming aids for babies and toddlers. Beach towels, cool boxes, chairs, parasol etc are available for your use at the beach too. The I75 highway is literally a few minutes drive from the villa, giving you easy access to not only the theme parks (Busch Gardens-1 hour, Disney, Sea World, Universal Studios-2 hours.), but access to travel south to Miami or even the Florida Keys.

About graeme waugh

I bought the villa with my parents and my brother in 2001 as we spent many holidays in Sarasota and loved the idea of having a holiday home. 10 years later we all still regularly enjoy holidays throughout the year in Sarasota during the various seasons.

graeme waugh purchased this villa in 2001

Why graeme waugh chose Sarasota

We bought the house in Sarasota as we loved the climate and the fact that the area has so much to offer. I personally, like golf and there are dozens of local courses which as a sole golfer will put you out with other people. The rest of my family prefer to do other things during their holiday like visiting the beach or laying by the pool so we are all happy.

What makes this villa unique

The house is close to many golf courses, restaurants and is only a 15 minute drive from the beach. Logistically it is only a 60 minute drive from Tampa and 120 minutes from Orlando, making it an ideal location for day visits to the theme parks without making them the main focus of a holiday.

The property has an enclosed heated pool, sun loungers, BBQ, a TV and games making it great for a lazy day in. We also provide towels and deck chairs to take to the beach for a great day out.

The house has all the benefits of a 'home from home' holiday.

An Unforgettable Holiday

  • 5 of 5

We had our first holiday without the children and my first trip to the USA, the villa was everything we could have wanted. It was ideally located as a base to explore the surrounding area, I fell in love with Anna Maria Island, we had an amazing air boat ride in Arcadia and two boat trips, saw the 4th July firework display in Sarasota harbour, it was just magical. While back at the villa I was in the pool most of the time, it was just right and the mesh cover was fantastic, I usually get eaten alive when abroad, but not one bite and still able to sun bathe. Every possible requirement provided. Didn't want to leave, will definitely be back :) Louise & Lloyd

Amazing holiday!!

  • 5 of 5

Our holiday in America was absolutely amazing, we loved every minute of it!!

The house was fantastic, very clean, everything seemed new and refurbished, very well equipped,it actually had so much more equipments, than we expected!! It`s found in a very nice street with lovely neighbours. The shops, restaurants and local beaches are very close.

Graeme (the house owner) and his family were so friendly and helpful from the first enquiry up till the return of the key. On the top of an unforgettable holiday

we got married on the Siesta Key beach, which is America`s number 1 beach. (ALL secretly organised by my husband).

Our whole stay was fantastic and memory for a lifetime. It really makes me want to go back as soon as possible!!!

Plenty of beaches to chose from - the nearest - Turtle & Siesta Beaches being only a 15 minute drive away. Most beaches have parking near by.


Tampa airport is the nearest (1 hour)and you can get direct flights from Gatwick. Orlando is 2 hours away and Miami is 4hours away both of which fly from Heathrow and Gatwick. Car hire is widely available at all destination airports.


Down town Sarasota is approx 20 minute drive away, theme parks are 1 and 2 hours respectively. Myakka reserve park is approx 30 minute drive.

Further Details:

The local supermarket, pharmacy, hospital and various small outlets are a 5 minute drive from the villa. Here, is a great bakery and well worth the visit. All types of bars and restaurants are a drive away depending on your requirements. There is a popular American sports bar near to the villa offering good and reasonable food with a buzzing atmosphere.
