The Villa has everything anybody would need and is ideally positioned for easy access throughout Sarasota and Longboat Key. The tranquillity on the creek is just perfect. Any question, Mark instantly replies.
So enjoyed the convenience of this property for our trip from Ohio to Sarasota, Florida to a wedding for our niece. Located near all of the wedding venues, plenty of shopping or restaurants, and the home itself provided all of the comforts of home!! Would gladly schedule another visit if the need ever comes up. You'll get a kick out of the flock of cranes in the canal and yard. We all stuck our toes in the pool, however the water was too cold to enjoy. The beautiful, sunny and warm November weather in Florida would be easy to get use too for us Buckeyes; seeing how we had left weather with temps in the 30's!!
When a vacation turns out to be everything that you hoped it would be with no disappointments, you've had a pretty good time. It all started and ended at this wonderful property. Great home, great location, great amenities, just an all around great place to stay while in the beautiful city of Sarasota. Mark, the owner, was very friendly and prompt to reply. Having your own pool is a major plus and the home was just fabulous. The proximity to beaches, museums, and other Sarasota sights and sounds was terrific. All in all a tremendous time was had by everyone and when and if I do it again, I wouldn't change a thing. Thanks again, Mark
This house made our stay in Sarasota better than we ever imagined, the 4 bedrooms gave us all plenty of room, the beds where super comfy, a full kitchen was super convenient. The pool was the highlight for the kids and was hard to get them out of. There are all the appliances you could need including a blender for Pina Coladas by the pool in the evening. Having a barbecue was great and my husband used it twice for our dinners. The owner Mark was great to work with and easy to get a hold of, he always answered all my questions quickly. There was a lot of little things like beach chairs and toys ready to use and we did at Siesta Key beach. There where also pool toys that got used. The kitchen has lots of spices and dishes and all the cooking utensils like pots, pans, and such. It is close enough to everything, we even went to the Magic Kindom for a day and it was not a bad drive. We look forward to staying in the beautiful home again soon.
We had such a wonderful vacation with our family at this home. It was beautiful, open and inviting and truly felt like our home away from home. My nine-year old daughter lived in the pool and had a blast..the child in all of us joined her! I lost count of how many times I heard throughout the visit "This is a great rental!"
For families that enjoy cooking, this kitchen had it all! We spent our evenings making meals together and had every gadget and dish stocked. Having the house on the canal was something special! We saw birds we hadn't ever before and there was always a variety of bird songs to wake you in the morning and throughout the day.
Our sister who is a local was having her wedding while we visited, she loved the house so much that she decided to get ready at the house and invited her wedding photographer over for pictures!
We enjoyed visits to the beaches, the Mote Aquarium, Long Boat Key, a phenomenal restaurant Tsunami Sushi & Hibachi Grill! We also ordered in Joey D's which was so yummy we had to have it again our last night there. My daughter was not ready to leave after 7 days, which is saying alot for a kiddo!
So I could go on...but you must enjoy this home first hand! We look forward to the next time.
Thank you Mark & Stacey and all those who help in taking care of this gem of a place!
