“Harrington House Rules!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 April 2008

We booked our 2008 reservations during our 2007 vacation as we learned to do in prior years. This years vacation lasted seven + weeks and became somewhat complex as we needed additional time due to two separate visits involving several of our grandchildren . The owners arranged for a private home a few steps from the Gulf to handle three grandchildren and their parents.
We decided to start our vacation a few days early due to a looming snowstorm in CT. We had to call from the car while traveling through from Jacksonville to get the additional days. Our villa was ready when we arrived 4 hours later.
This property faces the Gulf and "every" night we have a sunset in front of our villa/rooms. This property is located in the middle of a quaint and quiet island a few miles north of Sarasota and Longboat Key. There are numerous restaurants on the island within 10 minutes of Harrington House.
Breakfast is served every morning and the owner is always present and is fully involved during the service. Views at breakfast include people walking on the beach, diving pelicans, dolphins and the endless sound of waves from the Gulf of Mexico.
This is a wonderful quite property that allows one to recharge their batteries.
Our 2009 vacation will be for three months.

Stayed March 2008

Harrington House Rocks! We stayed in Bungalow 2, which is decorated so nicely. We cooked a few meals there, and enjoyed them on the little patio. Don't ever miss the breakfasts-they are delicious. The staff even remembered our drink order everyday. They were so helpful in getting directions to the airport, and answered any other question we could dream up. The chocolate chip oatmeal cookies daily at 3pm were a treat my daughters never missed. My oldest snagged the recipe on our way out the door. There's only one warning that was given to us. "Don't make them too often, or they won't be as special when you come back!" And go back we will. Don't miss this gem!
