Holiday Rental House
This upscale and unique 1926 Florida bungalow, with two bedrooms and two bathrooms, is located in the historic Laurel Park District of Sarasota. It features the charm of the old with the convenience of the new. The 1300 square foot home, with original old pine floors, was totally and elegantly renovated this year. Furnished with care and attention, this home will encourage relaxation and fun. You’re sure to love the enclosed front porch, where you can sit and watch the neighborhood pass by while eating dinner or sharing hors d'oeuvres. You can also sit in the landscaped yard, the dining room or the large, modern eat-in kitchen. The house is air conditioned using a state of the art heat pump that is both efficient and quiet. Each of the bedrooms also have ceiling fans driven by...This upscale and unique 1926 Florida bungalow, with two bedrooms and two bathrooms, is located in the historic Laurel Park District of Sarasota.

Each of the bedrooms also have ceiling fans driven by DC motors for quite operation. All appliances, including the washer and dryer, are top quality and have been selected for ease of use. Enjoy your music files or stream your favorite internet stations over your Bluetooth enabled device and through the Samsung 300 watt sound system using our WiFi network. Enjoy the latest movies through the Netflix or Amazon Prime video library. And there is full access to cable stations on the Samsung HDTV and Xfinity voice activated X1 cable system. Our bungalow is located in historic Laurel Park, a half block from the Burns Court section, complete with the famous Sarasota Film Society in Burns Court Cinema and Owen's Fish Camp. We are a 10 minute walk to Main Street and its many restaurants, shopping and a bowling alley at Evie's. Whole Foods is a three minute drive. All of Sarasota's many cultural activities, such as opera, dance, theater, jazz and other performing arts, are a short drive or walk away. Other activities, such as the Mote Aquarium, Baltimore Orioles spring training, public and private golf courses, sailing and canoeing, Selby Botanical Gardens, the Ringling Museum, the fabulous Saturday Farmers Market, the Van Wezel Performing Arts Center, and the Ca d'Zan, are all minutes away. The highly acclaimed Bobby Jones Municipal Golf Course offering 47 holes of landscaped beauty is a short 15 minute drive. And then there's the beach. Siesta Key Beach was ranked by many, including Conde Nast Magazine and TripAdvisor, and one of the best in the US, and best in the world by Travelers's Choice. If you're looking for a smaller beach, you can choose from Crescent Beach, Turtle Beach, Lido Beach or Longboat Key. Those willing to travel more than 15 minutes have endless choices, but our favorite is having dinner with our feet in the sand at the Sandbar Restaurant in Anna Maria Island. If you need more space, we have another unit on the same property, the Devonshire Carriage House, a fully equipped luxury one bedroom apartment. More

This is an amazing rehab of a real "Florida" bungalow. You actually can feel the history seeping out of the walls. It's like Florida in the twenties, but with all the modern amenities you could ask for. Top notch workmanship and design, a pleasure to...More
