Description of the Sarasota vacation home rental

Ideally located charming cottage near downtown, with one bedroom, one bath and den. Built in 1928 and recently completely renovated to modern standards.

Wonderful place to stay

This cute cottage could not have been more inviting. It was comfortable, well equipped and immaculately clean. The cottage was convenient to restaurants, theaters, the YMCA and Whole Foods Market. Also, a funky little tea house and great breakfast/lunch place was nearby. The landlords, Elwin and Diana Lissone were as nice as could be. We already booked our stay for next year

Absolutely Perfect!!

This lovely cottage is everything that other reviewers have already stated: clean, beautifully decorated, carefully supplied with everything you will need to experience what ‘real’ Florida is all about. The neighborhood allowed us to feel like Florida residents since we were able to walk to Whole Foods, the Post Office, church, restaurants, stores, AND Sarasota Bay! We like to cook so the gourmet kitchen was greatly appreciated and we slept so well on the queen size bed. And the owners, Elwin and Diana, are wonderful hosts who were always there to answer any questions we had. We highly recommend this rental!

We love Sarasota

If you enjoy being downtown you will love this beautifully redone 1920's cottage. Everything is not only artistic and beautiful but immaculately clean. The appliances, sheets, bed, bathroom and kitchen are all top of the line. We enjoyed walking downtown to shops and restaurants but often just sat on the deck reading or enjoying the garden which is like a little paradise. The garden has ginger, azaleas, palms, ferns and cedars which attract numerous birds. The landlords are kind and helpful should you need anything to make your stay more comfortable. We are happy to have found this rental and plan to come back next year.

Wonderfully Appointed Property!

My wife is a stickler for cleanliness & organization and the cottage was wonderful on both counts. The appliances were top-notch, kitchen well equipped and organized and the overall feel of the house was wonderful. The location is very convenient to walk to Main Street and 4th street restaurants. The back porch is comfortable and tropical just as we had hoped. The information on area attractions and restaurants provided by our hosts Elwin and Diana was very helpful and added to our enjoyment of the area. I highly recommend a stay here if you want a great vacation in Sarasota.

Charming cottage with everything

I stayed at this property for two months this summer while getting medical treatment in Sarasota at the Dattoli Cancer Center. I was looking for a place that was comfortable, peaceful and had everything I would need. Also the location was perfect.I was within walking distance to downtown, YMCA, restaurants and shops.The cottage was so well thought out by the hosts, Diana and Elwin. They designed it as if they were living there themselves. The Queen size bed was so comfortable that I took off the sheets to see the brand name on the mattress. Also there is plenty of storage space and the quality of all the furniture and kitchen appliances (all new) is first class. There is a nice flat screen tv and a room with a washer and dryer. The cottage is located in a .neighborhood named Gillespie Park. This neighborhood is diverse and on the rise. I enjoyed riding Elwin's bike through the neighborhood and having use of a bike was a big plus for me. So if you are looking for comfort, convenience, and location this is a perfect place. One added bonus is that the owners really care about your experience and are accessible as they live nearby. I would definitely stay at this location again.

Picturesque and full accommodation

Picturesque and full accommodation This property is fully furnished, centrally located in Sarasota. Center is within walking distance. The cottage is situated on the property of the owner in a friendly environment. The cottage has one bedroom cozy, well-equipped kitchen with dining room, living room, bathroom and a small conservatory. The house has a porch with seating overlooking a charming garden. Towels and tea towels in abundance. We are kindly received, nice explanation of the attractions to be visited occasions. It's clean! We believe a great stay for 1 to 4 weeks if you want to meet Florida. In all its facets The blinds of the windows deserves attention. An explanation of the operation of the existing ingress equipment (kitchen / living room) is desirable.

Very Nice place

This vacation home was very nice. It was immaculate, had state-of the art appliances, and was very convenient to everything. We were very comfortable and enjoyed it very much.

PERFECT LOCATION!

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay in your vacation cottage. The design of the space was lovely, the artwork interesting, the furnishings tasteful. I enjoyed relaxing on the deck, surrounded by exquisitely maintained tropical gardens and the historic boat and lighthouse landmarks. Of special interest to me is the location of the cottage in the Gillespie Park neighborhood. I enjoy walking, and in a matter of minutes I could walk downtown and stroll the scenic Sarasota harbor. We have recommended the cottage to our friends - one of whom, I understand, has already booked a stay there for next season.

Excellent vacation home !

We had the perfect home for 2, the cottage is clean, charming and comfortable. The back porch allowed us to relax with a beautiful view, it is ideally located at a short walking distance to shops and restaurants. Great hospitality from our host Diana & Elwin, very accommodating. We have been riding our bikes around Sarasota for two months and would highly recommend this place to all. Easily a place to return to

Home away from from

My husband and I arrived on January 1st and were greeted by our gracious hosts, Elwin and Diana. They were very helpful in providing information on events currently happening and knew the area well. The home was beautifully renovated and was decorated in a very trendy style. The gardens were well maintained and a treat to relax in during the heat of the day. The closeness to the downtown area enabled us to do a lot of walking. The food store "Whole Foods" was a real treat to shop for our meals. There are a number of restaurants straight along 4th Avenue close to Lemon St.. It was our first try at staying a whole month in one place and we were so pleased with our choice. ..We are more the pleased to give our recommendation to this vacation rental.
