My wife Mikeal'an and I moved to Sarasota 5 years ago. Our plan was to retire here after working and raising a family in the Washington DC/Northern VA area.
Jeff OKeefe purchased this house in 2015
We loved Sarasota from the moment we saw it and knew this was the place we had been searching for. We opted to live in Laurel Park (where all 4 of our vacation cottage rentals are because we enjoy walking our dogs to restaurants, cafes and the waterfront Bay Park. We enjoy riding our bikes to the Opera! The style is quaint and charming. We are very proud to offer 4 charming vacation cottages in our neighborhood so our guests can experience the same lifestyle!
We believe we are doing a great job because many of our guests have decided to purchase homes in our area while they were here!
Our area is VERY unique. Our quests are looking for something more than just beach and golf. Although those things are just a few minutes away, our location gives you so much more! All 4 of our charming vacation cottages are located in Laurel Park (voted the #1 neighborhood in Sarasota). Our vacationers are within walking distance to all the action and the waterfront harbor, yet far enough away to sit our your patio and not here a thing!
We are just 2 blocks from everything downtown/harbor so your can walk to it all!
Copied from our guests book! I had to share the funny comments this guest wrote....
"The Hide-Away Cottage is charming. We enjoyed our vacation largely because of the cottage and it's location. Clean, tidy, bright and charming. The old Florida style reminded me of years gone by. Rented bikes and went with the wind, where it took us. Ate at as many cafes as we could, walked to dinner and a show every night. Slept late without guilt, stuffed the cell phones and computers in the closet during the whole stay. Ate and Ate and Ate..."
We enjoyed our week in Sarasota, so much to do and see. We checked out all the surrounding beaches and towns, loved the area. Our cottage was perfect, great downtown location. We could walk to shops, restaurants, Whole Foods and the marina.Jeff and Mikeal'an both called us back when we had a question, very helpful.
The cottage was as advertised...cozy and in a great location in Laurel Park. We walked everywhere in downtown Sarasota, including the Selby Gardens and the marina. Whole Foods was close enough for walking as well. The cottage was well equipped with towels and kitchen stuff - we cooked in a couple of nights and had breakfast most mornings. Communication from the owner/manager could be better - I had to call prior to arrival to get the details about how to access the cottage. That said I would recommend staying here if you like basic accommodations and great location.
The hide-a-way in Laurel Park was a wonderful spot to stay in Sarasota. I loved the fact that I could walk or bike anywhere I wanted to go including Whole Foods, Burns Court Cinema and countless restaurants and coffee shops.
Jeff was nothing less then amazing in supporting my requests. If it was a need for a lounge chair, newer towels or super yummy sheets or any manner of supplies, he was quickly there to support me. The cottage was comfortable and clean and located in a wonderfully safe and fun neighborhood.
I would highly recommend any of their properties and am hoping to return very soon.
Property was exactly as stated in rental ad. It was clean, comfortable and private. Location is wonderful convenient to everything downtown yet surpringly quiet. Mikeal was extremely helpful in giving me directions and tips which came in handy as we arrived after dark. Jeff came by during the week to see if we needed anything. It was good to know the owners were local and available if needed.
Excellent location. Walked to everything. Close to everything but quiet as we sat on the patio at night. Charming, fresh, light and bright, very clean. Mattresses are very high end- impressive!
Thank you Jeff and Mikeal'an for the lovely stay at the cottage. We will definitely leave with fond memories of our trip to Sarasota and the surrounding beaches. The location was just as described and we were able to walk downtown and to the movies and enjoy the cafés and restaurants. We will certainly be back and recommend your cottage to all our friends and family.
Your attention to detail and the decorations were greatly appreciated
Why is our Siesta Key Beach often voted #1 in the USA by the prestigious Dr. Beach? Our Caribbean blue water and (litterly) baby powder soft, white sand found on our beaches is like no other in the continential USA! Dubbed the 'Cultural Coast', you can enjoy a vast mixture of live entertainment, from the refined Ballet, Opera and Symphony, to the more funky Comedy Clubs or Drag Queen Bingo! The Downtown area is the hub of the action and our cottages are located just a few, quiet blocks away from everything!
