Description of the Sarasota vacation home rental
The Casita Rio and Casita Suel are two separate units which can be uniquely configured to create Suelo y Rio, an absolutely beautiful and stunning private pool home.

Please Note:
These units [Casita Rio & Casita Suel] can be rented separately.
Combined, these units are called: Soulo y Rio (Sleeps 12)
If one unit is not available, please contact us for the availability of the other!
Featuring a heated pool, a screened in lanai overlooking the beautiful Phillippi Creek, and 4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms that sleeps 12, with 2 living areas and 2 kitchens in each casita, there are 2 bedrooms / 2 bathrooms and a kitchen with living areas). Suelo y Rio is well located just five minutes of a drive to Siesta Key, and ten minutes from the famous Siesta Key public beach access.

This private home is divided into two separate units, Casita Rio and Casita Suelo to be rented apart from one another. If they are rented separately, the pool, and dock area are then considered public space for all to enjoy! (The screened in lanai is for Casita Rio use only.) On your arrival at “Suelo y Rio”, you will quickly notice the home set off away from the neighborhood, a soft banana colored home with bright cheerful door colors (Casita Suelo is the first unit in the front and Casita Rio is the unit around the left side).

Beautiful tropical foliage surrounds the home and you will immediately begin to sense the lush beauty of our Florida landscape and the special allure of this lovely home. All bedrooms and living areas have wall mounted flat panel televisions, ceiling fans, and plenty of closet space. The bathrooms are spotless, bright, clean. The entire home is floored with rich, luscious tile that emanates cleanliness and brightness. The neutral colors yet vibrant artwork immediately restore your faith in the soothing power of tropical surroundings.

This home offers a beautiful kitchens, with granite countertops, stainless appliances, everything necessary to prepare and serve lavish gourmet meals for a huge group. The exquisitely furnished, expansive living areas offer the opportunity for all to gather in a single room or slip away for a few hours of individual family indulgence (if both units are booked together as: Suelo y Rio), completely your choice.

Guests will enjoy a master bedroom featuring a king size bed, and the guest room features 2 twin beds (sleeping 4 in beds altogether). In the living room, the sofa also converts to a queen size comfy bed to sleep six guests in each unit. There is plenty of seating at the dining table, bar counters or poolside to accommodate everyone and the moment’s desire. The large private backyard is filled with outdoor furnishings to complement your full enjoyment of this tropical paradise.

The pool area is surrounded by lush tropical vegetation for shade and enjoyment, all designed to enhance the tropical feeling. And special landscape lighting at night only serves to extend your most pleasurable moments.Don’t forget to meander down to the dock in the evenings to watch the sun set to the west, and watch the snook as they gather for their evening feast around the underwater dock light. Perhaps you could even try a little fishing in those evenings- there is fishing gear just in the corner of the lanai!

Plenty of bicycles and beach paraphernalia are available for your enjoyment and located in the closets and along the side of the home. Also there’s plenty of parking available also- with enough parking for up to four vehicles. Just over the Siesta Key South Bridge (a five minute drive) you’ll find all of the great shops, markets, bars and restaurants located in the South Village-Crescent Beach area.
