Lovely house and very homely
Locley location and very homely. All the things you need and felt like home very quickly.just could do with some TLC. Thank you for letting us stay and your neighbors made us very welcome
Communication with the owners of badly 2*. House is not bad, but far away. Cleanest of the house 4*. Constant scrutiny from neighbors - almost no private. It is impossible to have any visitors, even if it does not violate the rules of stay.
First Vacation in Florida was wonderful
Villa is beautiful ,has everything you would need for a great vacation , close to beaches and stores, We enjoyed our stay there very much, Villa was clean well maintained ,layout of the home is perfect, pool was awesome !! Sue and Alan are super nice and helpful in every way, so easy to deal with ..If you are looking for a great place to stay I would recommend you give this Villa a try , I will be going back again !
Home Away from Home!
Dealing with Sue was very smooth and very efficient. Every question we had was answered. From the moment we walked in the house it felt like home. The home is roomy, bright and very comfortable. The kitchen is very well equipped, anything we needed it was there for us to use. The bathrooms are up to date and beautifully decorated, the whole home is. The pool is amazing! The kids never wanted to come out. The location of the home was perfect for us. Bee Ridge offered everything we needed. 15-20mins from Siesta Key and St Armands, depending on traffic. The only small issue was the TV in the living room. We followed directions but still could not get all the offered channels. We had an amazing time! We will for sure be staying there again if not moving to Sarasota before that! :)
Thank you Sue & Alan!!!
Comfortable, well equipped holiday home.
The house was very well furnished and decorated in light, soft colours with attractive wall hangings and ornaments. Everything we needed was provided from linens and towels to crockery, glass, cutlery, cooking utensils, cooking and serving dishes and even a generous supply of washing liquid in the laundry room. The house was clean and welcoming when we arrived and everything worked well, except the TV in the living room where we were unable to get the cable service. We had no trouble receiving it in the main bedroom.
The pool was cleaned every week, but we only used it 3 times,. We had cooler temperatures than are normal for Jan/Feb and the pool was not warm enough for comfort most days. There were bicycles, golf clubs, pool toys and cool boxes for picnics available if we wanted them. The lanai received the afternoon sun and even on cool days was a pleasant place to sit.
The only downside for us was the location. It was a 15 minute drive into central Sarasota or the nearest beach at Siesta Key and the car had to be used to do everything. Easy access to the Interstate 75 made some of the journeys quicker and we did a lot of exploring from Disney World in the north to Naples in the south. We visited the Ringling Complex several times, the Dali Museum, the Theatre and Opera and several State Wildlife Parks.
Holiday Rental par excellence !!
Prior to our stay, the owners Sue & Alan could not have been more friendly and helpful supplying us with a concise list of everything required.
The house was very clean and new bathrooms and showers of the highest quality. There were bicycles and everything you could need for the beach.
The house is set in a very quiet area and yet only 5 minutes from Publix ,and other shops and restaurants. The neighbours are also very friendly and helpful.
The famous Siesta beach is a short drive away as is St Armands circle and all the high quality stores there.
There is also the enormous UCT mall 20 minutes away which has Macy' s , Dillard's etc and many other shops and restaurants.
The house has its own pool which as it is solar heated is always extremely comfortable as are the year-round temperatures.
There is also a gas barbecue which we regularly used and eating out in the lanai is wonderful.
In summary we had a marvellous time here and I would not hesitate in recommending this house for couples or families.
You will thoroughly enjoy your stay at 5526 Rollingwood Drive.
From the Owner
“As a family we spent most of our summer holidays in Florida and as a result of that decided to buy a house in Sarasota. We enjoy spending our time there as the weather is good, the beaches are fantastic and the lifestyle is relaxed and restful. The neighbourhood is safe and very friendly and our immediate neighbours have become good friends. Locally there are excellent supermarkets for all of the household needs, there are good family restaurants and bars very near. If you want more glamour, Downtown Sarasota is just a 10/15 minutes drive away, where you will find some very good restaurants and nightlife. The Saturday market is the place to be seen and the atmosphere is great and the plus is you can get good food and coffee.”

“The house has a large private garden and is just a short drive from fabulous beach with miles of fine white sand. The pool and garden are great for relaxing in and we provide towels for both the pool and beach. When going to the beach there are chairs and umbrellas so you can travel light and make the most of the great coastline. For those who enjoy a more active holiday, you can take advantage of the nearby golf courses and nature reservations. There are wonderful places to visit locally and you can experience the unspoilt Florida in places like Myakka State Park. We love Sarasota and believe you will also.”
