About the property

3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms with sunny west facing pool and garden.

*** Please also see my other Home on reference number 65941***

Totally refurbished from a new roof right down to beautiful tile floors, new bathrooms, and a custom built kitchen we are very proud to offer our second home to our many returning guests. Decorated in the same beach cottage style as our first home with local eclectic furnishings and art, we know families will feel as at home as we do!

The master bedroom has a 'Sealy Posturepedic' King bed and en suite shower room. The second bedroom has Sealy twin beds and the third has a gorgeous Swedish style day bed with trundle pull-out. All the bedrooms have masses of storage. The family bathroom has a shower tub.

The living area is light and spacious, open plan from the front door, with morning sun, to the 'Florida Room' which enjoys the westerly evening sun.

A white custom built wooden kitchen with all new appliances and granite counters opens onto the dining area which links the two living areas and creates an ideal space for a big family or a couple to relax.

The Florida Room leads out to the enclosed Lanai and pool which enjoys all day sun and, due to a long westerly outlook at the back of the home, the evening rays will light your barbecue.

There is a door from the kitchen to the washer and dryer in the garage, this in turn leads to the sunny, fully fenced garden at the side of the property. Flat screen TVs in the lounge and master bedroom bring you the many channels expected in the US. High speed broadband WIFI and phone, free for local calls is part of our package. There is parking for several cars.

Our neighbourhood is a quiet residential one, off the tourist track, close to the local Amish quarter with its fresh produce market and home made ice cream parlour. The YMCA is a short walk away with gym and indoor pool facilities. Shops and restaurants are just minutes away on the Tamiami Trail. The award winning beaches of Siesta Key are a 10 minute drive. Our rates are quoted in US $ and include taxes, electric pool heat, cable and WiFi.. We accept US $ checks but all other international payments must be made by secure online banking or Online Card Payments, we also accept Paypal.

A minimum rental of 1 month may apply during Jan-April at owner's discretion and at Christmas we have a minimum 10 day rental.

There is a cleaning fee of $150 which can be paid in $ upon departure or deducted from the security/damage deposit, just ask the owner.

Very clean, great location, well presented

  • 5 of 5

The villa was situated in a perfect location with access to all areas of Sarasota. The place was extremely clean when we arrived and welcome notes were very informative and detailed. Overall I would rent this villa again for future visits.

Perfect family home and great location

  • 4 of 5

The house was exactly what we were looking for! It met all our expectations. It accommodated our party of four adults and one teen. Beds were comfortable and the pool was enjoyed every day. Having a third tv in the bedroom with the two twin beds was a pleasant surprise. The kitchen was well supplied and everything was very cleaned. Having a washer and dryer to use meant that we didn't have to bring as many clothes and we were able to do a few loads before we left. The neighborhood was nice and conveniently located for us. The small room (not mentioned) before you went out to the pool was a nice seating area great for reading. We found we needed an additional chair in the LR so we brought a chair from this area out and problem solved! Our contact nearby replied very quickly to our questions. Very satisfied and hope to return some day!

Lovely, Well Maintained Home in a Quiet Location

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed a short 4 night stay in Susan's bungalow, which is extremely well maintained, clean and very beautifully furnished. The property is exactly as described in the listing.

The property is well located with plenty of shops and restaurants close by, with a short drive to Siesta Key.

The pool area is wonderful and totally secluded.

It is very easy to communicate with Susan, the owner and re-assuring that her daughter, Annalise, is nearby should there be any problems. A great set-up.

I would certainly recommend this property.

Home from home - but better!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 stayed here for 10 days in August and I can thoroughly recommend it; in fact it's probably the best property we've ever rented. The bungalow is very spacious with a huge open plan living area, kitchen and then on into a 2nd small living area which opens up onto the pool area. There is a double bedroom with an enormous bed and en-suite, a twin room, a 3rd room with a day bed which opens up to make a double, plus a family bathroom. The property is spotlessly clean, well maintained and furnished tastefully and to a very high standard throughout which made our stay very comfortable. The kitchen, unlike many properties we've rented, actually has enough good quality pots, pans and dishes to make it possible to cook a full meal, and the dishwasher, washing machine and tumble dryer all made for easy living. The pool area is covered in a mesh cage which kept mosquitos and other nasties out, and meant we could sit outside in the evening enjoying the beautiful sunsets without being eaten alive. I would definitely recommend this property

We enjoyed a superb stay in Susan's bungalow for a fabulous, and very comfortable 6 weeks in January/February 2016 to escape some of the British winter. Everything was as described in this listing, Annalise was at the bungalow checking some maintenance work had been carried out on our arrival which was nice as we were able to meet & greet one another and show us around. The home was exceptionally clean and tidy, high end furnishings, comfortable master bed, plenty of linens, towels, even beach towels not often provided. The pool was heated to 85f which was just right for us seniors. We spent many happy hours in the bright and airy Florida room on cooler days. The home is very central to everything in and around Sarasota making getting around easy, also close to shops, restaurants everything you need to make for a good vacation!!!

Susan was very good with all the arrangements making booking easy, we went to meet her in her shop just before our trip as it is near our home here in England, and with lovely Annalise keeping in touch, living nearby in Sarasota to assist with any problems they make a great team. We would recommend this home to everyone looking for a high end vacation rental just like home from home. The only problem we experienced was leaving to come home!!!

We will return and without a doubt this was one of the best Home Away rentals we have stayed in. Thanks Susan & Annalise.

Amazing Villa! 5*****

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic stay here! The villa is like a home from home with all high quality finishings and equipment, attention to small details and all the added extras included (beach gear, stocked bookshelves, nicely equipped kitchen, high quality bedding, and spotlessly clean!

We travelled with our 9 month old baby and it was no trouble for Susan to organise a high chair and Cot at last minute for us. The private sunny pool area is perfect for a little one as the temperature is warm enough for a baby and again spotless!

The little one slept much better here than he does at home!!!! Says it all really!!!!

We decided to stay on in Sarasota a little longer and it was just a real shame that the villa was booked out as we would have loved to had stayed on here!!

Thanks Susan! It made our holiday!

Siesta Key

Only 10-15 minutes from the fine white sands of the Gulf of Mexico and our award winning beach,. Moments from the many fabulous restaurants of the Tamiami Trail. A 10 minute drive will take you to the boutique shopping at St. Armands Key with its fine dining and Lido beach, drive across to Longboat Key and Anna Maria Island for a true Florida Keys experience. The famous Ringling Museum and Mansion, the art galleries of Palm Avenue, the Van Wezel concert hall, orchestra and ballet, the stylish new Selby public library and the many beautiful examples of Spanish architecture dating back to the 1920's all remind us that Sarasota truly is the cultural capital of Florida. However bargain hunters and fashionistas are not forgotten with excellent shopping malls within 10 minutes drive and a huge designer discount mall at Ellenton, 30 minutes away. Wildlife enthusiasts will enjoy Jungle Gardens, or a trip to the Myakka River to see the alligators
