“Retreat, Relax, Restore!”
Reviewed 27 October 2017 for a stay in October 2017

The Bird House is a jewel, carefully decorated and furnished with unique pieces and antiques. I had the place to myself but could have shared it with 6 or 7 others comfortably. This might be the quietest street in Sarasota but is walking distance to downtown. There are two porches, front and back, ideal for reading or snoozing. Can't wait to go back!

“A unique, charming, quirky, colorful place”
Reviewed 21 May 2017 for a stay in January 2017

We were looking for a place convenient to downtown, to walks toward the water, and a relatively short ride to Lido beach. To find one with artistic features and nostalgic presentations of old Florida was the bonus in renting the Birdhouse. We'll be back for our third visit in a row next January. Katherine is easy to work with, flexible, and always available to answer questions. Her talents are everywhere in this environmentally sound dwelling. We're delighted to have found it.

The Birdhouse is one of two properties available, side by side. What a glorious riot of color, artistic flair, and all the amenities one could want on vacation.

The location is in the Historic District of Sarasota, which makes the neighborhood a combo of rehabbed and original small houses. We loved the space available so that people could find quiet nooks to read (two porches front and back and a lounge on the second floor) and everyone could gather in the commodious open kitchen, dining, hanging out area. Every time we turned a corner we'd notice some new artifact in the collection of retro ceramics, old prints, and restored hand painted furniture. A totally unique place to stay. Friends and family who dropped by during our stay were drawn in to all the special touches the artist/owner Katherine has created. I like creative surroundings, and this fits the bill completely. It's also a very easy drive to downtown restaurants, theater, and music. When traffic cooperates it's a short drive to St. Amand's Circle and Lido Beach. One for commerce and one for lounging on a clean spacious beach. We prefer to stay in the charming city instead of in a resort condo, so The Bird House was a terrific find for us.

The Bird House is a warm inviting fantastic choice for a Sarasota stay. It's got everything you need, filled with history and charm, and in an amazing location. 5 minutes to Lido beach, and just north of downtown. Also, about 5 minutes from the airport as well. I highly recommend staying here.

“The perfect choice for us!”
Reviewed 13 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

The location of The Bird House is perfect for accessing walks along the bay, shops and restaurants, and the Ringling Museum. Its a short drive to St. Armand's Circle and Lido Beach.
The house itself is very comfortable and welcoming, as well as being visually beautiful. We loved being able to grill and eat in the back garden. Katherine is the perfect host. She's always available if you need her but never intrudes. We thank her for creating and sharing this unique Sarasota destination.

We loved staying at this home. It was spacious, beautiful, and very clean. Katherine was fantastic. She met us at the house and gave us a tour. There was even a bag of coffee in the freezer. The home is beautifully decorated and unique. There were modern appliances and plenty of utensils, towels, etc.. The outside was just as gorgeous as the inside. We loved sitting on the back porch reading and watching birds. The location was very convenient to the beach, museums, grocery stores and stadium. The neighborhood was quiet and there was a park across the street. I would definitely stay here again and recommend this home to others.
