Christmas in Sarasota!

January 2, 2016

My husband and I rented the month of December so that we could spend time with family who live in Sarasota. Our New York daughter spent a week at the cottage with us. We so enjoyed the privacy, comfortable cottage and pool. It was wonderful having a large fenced yard for our two small poodles off of the kitchen, the large Lanai, and a well stocked large laundry room. The neighborhood is quiet and everyone was friendly. Walks along the Bay provided gorgeous views of sunsets, seabirds, birds of prey, and fish leaping from the water.....it was heavenly. The restaurants are plentiful, and beaches fabulous. We spent the end of our stay enjoying Moscow's Nutcracker at the Van Wezel. If you love theater, fine dining, the arts,beaches, and first class shopping....this is the place for you.

November is my new vacation favorite

November 24, 2015

Well I stayed at the lovely cottage and was in love at once . Having busy days in Sarasota, makes this private setting by the pool in the evening a treasure. Carefully appointed with every day items takes the burden of shopping away. . It's touching to read the guest book of prior guests and to read their stories. As requested I replaced the items I used and Was glad to do it. This civility is heartwarming . As a retired widow, the owner made a plan for me to visit my beloved city " off season". I Hope to return next year, I love that cottage. The fellows from Rosebay were lovely to me, when I needed a little help, they came to my rescue . There is a good feeling , a safe felling, at the cottage and walks on the Bay were beautiful. I feel lucky to experience the "homey" environment Sarasota is growing fast , visiting the museums , university and seeing my sister-in - laws new little store taking hold in Sarasota was heaven.

Owner's reply:

We are so pleased that you had such an enjoyable stay in our Sarasota Guest Cottage as you visited family, and the many museums, yet finding time to relax by the pool or stroll to Sarasota Bay at the end of our one block street. Should you decide to return next year, we would welcome your return as you renew your spirit with all that Sarasota and our accommodations offer.

Well appointed 1 bedroom cottage

February 16, 2015

This one bedroom cottage, in a very quiet neighborhood, has all the amenities including a beautiful pool literally ten steps out your doorway. Well located near SRQ and such must see attractions as the Ringling Museum and the Crosley Estate. Short ride to downtown Sarasota, University Pkwy shopping, and St. Armand Circle. AND beautiful sunsets overlooking Longboat Key a very short walk away.

Tom Lyon

Owner's reply:

Come to your 'home away from home' to relax and enjoy the many amenities offered to you. Thank you for your return visits, Steve and Joanne. We look forward to your next Sarasota visit and your stay with us.

We totally enjoyed our month long stay in Sarasota fl and in our cottage on Hernando Ave. The pool was warm and inviting. Very clean. The location was convent to most everything . Our neighbors in the main house for one week were friendly too. We are glad we chose to visit Sarasota and to stay at the cottage. Thank you Tom and Bill too. Sincerely, Greg and Mary Hobbs.

I felt really at home in the cottage. It was close to everything and the Sarasota bay was at the end of the street. The pool was fantastic. I took a six mile walk around the neighborhood and it was just beautiful.

Just Like Paradise

May 16, 2012

We felt right at home in the guest cottage. There was plenty of room for the two of us. It was far better than staying in a hotel. The cottage is light and airy and very comfortable. We absolutely loved the pool area. It was wonderful to get up in the morning walk out the door just a few steps and have the pool right there. We swam every day, usually morning and evening. It was so relaxing to enjoy the warm water while looking at the beautiful tropical landscaping. Thank you for sharing you wonderful home. We will be back.

Enjoyable Place

March 2, 2012

Nice home for two people. Convenient for almost everything. Some airport noise and it needs a decent chair or new cushions in the living room. Disposal in sink would have been nice; haven't had to paw scraps in a while. But, the place is nice and the pool is right out he door. I would stay again.

Felt Like Home From the Minute I Walked In!

May 25, 2011

I stayed at this wonderful cottage for three months and always felt at right at home in my little piece of paradise at the cottage by the Bay! The water views are right down the street displaying breathtaking sunsets; it is a peaceful, quiet, safe neighborhood with a spectacular mix of older and newer houses. I thoroughly enjoyed my evening walks, the landscaping, pool and patio areas.... everything I needed was there... and it is close to everything... including Downtown and the beaches. I needed to come back to Sarasota this month and was pleased to be able to stay at the cottage again... I immediately felt comfortable, relaxed and at home once more. Poolside is great for entertaining friends too! The cottage easily accommodates 2/3 comfortably. Anytime I am in town, I will come back again and again to the cottage. Highly recommended for wonderful, accommodating stay and delightful memories in the Sarasota/Bradenton area.
