Perfect location..perfect home..great owners

April 16, 2015

All make for a wonderful fun filled 2 month stay . The location is so close to all that we were interested in..golf..beaches..the culture of Sarasota..Red Sox spring training. The home is more than advertised...pictures are very accurate ..the owners take great pride in ownership and making sure your stay is comfortable. The rental process is very easy and owners we in touch making sure everything was set up to our liking. If our future dates enable us to rent from Lara and Sparky again we will most certainly do that. Thank you for the use of your Florida home!! Jim and Jackie Portland Maine

Lara & Sparky,

We greatly enjoyed our month in your house. It is spacious & comfortable & the layout lends to a lot of privacy when sharing with another couple. Its proximity to highway 41 is so very convenient for shopping & visiting other cities. The book of information about the area was extremely helpful. The internet was a plus since we had a teenager with us & she never lost touch with friends. The beaches are beautiful especially Siesta Key which is only 50 minutes from here, soft powdery sand with no shells. We had a wonderful time & would recommend your house to our friends & family.

Lara & Sparky,

Thank you for sharing your home. We found it to be very comfortable and made us feel like we were “right at home.” You have been very helpful, professional and responsive. We appreciate your thoughtfulness. Finding the pantry well stocked with the encouragement to please use and restock was an excellent idea. The convenient location of your home was an added bonus for us.

Blessings,

The home is just lovely, it comes equipped with everything one needs to be comfortable. Lots of dishes, pots and pans, bedding, towels, etc. The location is central to restaurants, shopping, golf courses. Half way between Sarasota and Fort Myers. We visited the Ringling Bros museum and the dog races in Sarasota. Fishermans village in Punta Gorda is a neat thing for the ladies to go to. There is an antique car museum south on Hwy 41 that the men would enjoy. The listing description and pictures of the house are very accurate, the house is clean and well maintained. You will need a vehicle as it is in a residential area. The owners contacted us midway during our stay to make sure everything was OK and to see if we needed anything. I would recommend this home to my family and firends.

Good Morning Lara,

Your welcome message is so sweet. Thank you.

We found EVERYTHING perfectly wonderful. Clean, convenient and inclusive of everything we could need to enjoy our stay. Thank you for sharing your home with us. We will treat it as if it were our own; with loving care.

We found this property to meet our expectations and more. It was entirely clean and well maintained and nothing in the house made us grouchy or negative. Communication with owner was quick and courteous. Everything seemed well thought out and the internet on site was a great addition that is not typically included in such rentals. We would do a redo of our vacation in a heartbeat, stay at the same place, and visit the same nearby gulf beaches.

Hi Lara,

Thank you for the check. We enjoyed our stay in your wonderful home. We visited most of the places along the gulf from Sarasota to Fort Meyers. The weather was very nice all week and now we are back to 30s and 40s.

Thanks again
