My husband and I just spent five wonderful weeks at Sunrise Holiday Retreat. It is a pretty place, nicely landscaped with palm trees and flowers and outdoor seating to enjoy the vegetation and songbirds. The weather was warm and we were able to enjoy the very private deck with the spa and the lanai. The cottage is small but so well designed that we did not feel crowded. The kitchen is well equipped (microwave, dishwasher, full fridge) and functional. The GE microwave/convection oven was particularly helpful for making meals quickly. The king size bed is comfortable.The shower system with rain, handheld and jets options, temperature control with good pressure and plenty of warm water is delightful.Cynthia and Bruce were the most attentive, responsive and helpful hosts we have ever encountered (we have rented quite a few places).
The location was perfect and we were able to easily access everything that Sarasota has to offer from the nearby Siesta Key beaches, to the parks and the downtown area.
We are looking forward to our next visit!
We stayed for 11 days. The hosts Cynthia and Bruce could not be more accommodating. The cottage has a front yard, fenced in side yard and deck. Perfect for your furry traveling companion as well. Wonderful shower, not tub and the kitchen has a cooktop, microwave, full fridge even a coffee pot. If you are looking for something other than a hotel or huge condo this rental is for you. Close to the Gulf, shopping and restaurants.
Cynthia and Bruce have a beautiful little cottage gem retreat with anything you could need in your home away from home. Of course it offers features that "make" you want to start planning your return visit once you've stayed in the retreat. They have spared no expense; which you will enjoy through their dedication of layout using top of the line finishes. Their water features throughout the property are pretty amazing, leaving you revived and renewed. You will find a fully stocked kitchen, AWESOME shower, and jazzi spa on private deck. We even used the washer/ dryer they provide. We needed nothing but if we had we only would of needed to ask, and we know Cynthia would of made it happen if it was in her power. You can bring your dog and she will pet sit....now I don't know about you but that's pretty darn good. I'm telling you it's expensive to board!!! We didn't bring our baby this time but my goodness that's awesome!
Cynthia is a wealth of information about the area, and a blessing to be around. She was a Godly Connection for sure. We enjoyed our stay and would encourage anyone of our friends to stay with Cynthia and Bruce at the Sunrise Holiday Retreat.
Great location! Perfect price. Clean and Comfy. Private. Cynthia was very friendly and checked in to make sure all was well.
What a great little find in a perfect location! Sunrise Holiday was absolutely perfect in every way, it was comfortable and cozy; it had everything you would need for a beach getaway including new beach chairs and umbrella. The outside yard areas were so nice to have exspecially how well fenced in they were so my small dogs could have fun but not escape! I totally appreciated the private laundry too. The kitchen had everything plus more! For a small studio I was glad to see a nice sized bathroom with an ironing station! The shower was awesome and I could not help but sing "Working at the Carwash" every time I used it! And NEVER ran out of hot water. Cynthia and Bruce have an outstanding little gem with Sunrise Holiday;they are also very lovely people who give you plenty privacy. I would definitely recommend Sunrise Holiday!!!! Bonus: bed is comfortable and sheets are sooo soft!
Really don't want to give this an excellent, outstanding, awesome review because then the entire world will know about this magical retreat..... when we want to book there will be NO VACANCY!!!
We fell in love with Sunrise Holiday Retreat when we walked thru the red door. We were a little nervous about booking a studio but everything was thoughtfully planned, quite lovely and not cramped...everything top notch.
Especially enjoyed the quietness away from the hustle and bustle of Siesta. When we wanted to explore, the proximity to restaurants, the Amish-Mennonite community, beach, etc. was within minutes
Hubby enjoyed the spa while I enjoyed some R & R curled up with a novel. BTW, the retreat is well stocked with books and magazines..
Cynthia is a most friendly person and most gracious host...and a new friend!
All was awesome! Cynthia and her husband Bruce were wonderful and would answer any questions you had. Everything was close within walking distance! Siesta Beach has sand like flour!
