“Exceptional property”

Reviewed 6 Apr 2015

This home is conveniently located adjacent to St. Armand's Circle for great shopping and restaurants as well as only 3 blocks walk to the public beach. The home is well maintained, clean, and has every amenity required for a prolonged stay. The pool area is surrounded by lush tropical landscaping and very private and quite. Our family would highly recommend this property.

“Delightful”

Reviewed 12 Feb 2015

Very spacious and delightfully appointed this fabulously located Sarasota property is literally 15 steps to the shops and restaurants on St Armands Circle. It has 2 master bedrooms and a lushly landscaped pool and was home to my family, (husband and 2 college age kids) for 2 wonderful weeks in Jan 2015. Its a short walk to Lido Key beach (very nice) a short drive to Longboat Key. We rarely used our car there is so much to do and see (and eat and drink) within walking distance. A good time was had by all.

“Fantastic house!!”

Reviewed 21 Nov 2013

We have been at this fantastic house for one month, sadly leaving tomorrow. The location is the best, allowing us with dogs to walk around the circle every morning and night for an ice cream, a drink or just a nice brightly lit social walk. The house itself has everything you need. Great pool, bar b que, tv with every channel, fast internet, and all the comforts of home. We can't wait to return next year. Managers Greg and Jim are wonderful, always an email or text away if you have a problem. We had an issue with pool heater and it was quickly replaced. We would recommend this property to anyone, it was a truly fabulous holiday.

“Home away from home”

Reviewed 15 Feb 2013

This house is very well located in a prime tourist area, near shops, restaurants and beaches. Sarasota is a wonderful area and this property is a perfect place to explore it from. The house is in first-rate shape, it is well appointed and perfect for 2 couples. The pool is wonderful and the grounds, pool and house are very well taken care of. What was nice is that the owners left spices and things in the kitchen. In many places you have to start with a clean slate. We were really sorry to have to leave and would recommend this property without reservations, even to my fussy brother in law. In closing, the agent, who managed the property, was very user-friendly and great.

“Awesome Vacation”

Reviewed 10 Jan 2013

The family chose the Sarasota area for vacation this year based on the recommendations from some close friends. I found this beach house online which seemed to good to be true, but proceeded. It would have been a huge mistake for us to have not selected this great house in a very attractive area. Two blocks from the beach, one block from shopping and restaurants, and a great home with a heated pool made it the perfect location. By the end of the week, it felt like home. When we get the opportunity to do this again, we will be calling Jim looking for two weeks and not just one. I would recommend this property to anyone who has high expectations. It has raised the bar. Thanks Jim for making us feel welcome and setting us for a very memorable vacation.
