BEAUTIFUL TRANQUIL POOL HOME NEAR AMERICA'S NO 1 BEACH

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday home in Sarasota

3 Bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, sleeps 8 plus infants

*** Please also see my other Home on reference number 1071348***

Our stylish 2,200 sq.ft. home has been exquisitely decorated in an elegant tropical style, an eclectic mix of shabby chic and vintage pieces. It sits high on a large lot in a private road of only 6 homes close to Phillippi Creek with all its wonderful birds and wildlife. Drive or cycle to Siesta Key beaches, just named America's No 1 Beach, (10 minutes by car) or visit Southgate Mall,many designer names as well as all America's favourite brands. The many varied restaurants of Tamiami Trail are equally close by, many offering take out service. Or simply relax in your own tropical paradise, sparkling heated saltwater pool (no chlorine, kinder to eyes and skin), fully screened in with al fresco eating, large gas grill for the excellent local seafood, and a spacious screened lanai! (No bugs or other unwelcome visitors!)The pool is not overlooked and the whole yard is surrounded by lush tropical landscaping.

Our fabulous beach: http://www.cnn.com/2011/TRAVEL/05/27/best.beaches

In May Siesta Beach was named America's Best Beach and confirmed what we have known for years, that the fine white quartz crystal sand has healing powers and is home to many nesting birds and sea turtles. The aquamarine ocean is warm by May/June and remains so until November. A regular morning walk on this stunning beach or a sunset shared with a friend or lover is a magical experience, never to be forgotten. The public beach has full facilities and is busy and popular, we prefer the north end of the key where the beach is tranquil and you can spend hours with a book and hardly see a soul.

Bedrooms: All our bedrooms have fine linens and comfortable beds, the bathrooms are all white with tile floors and all new fittings in 2005. We have cupboards full of towels and sheets, duvets for the winter, sufficient extra bedding for 8 to sleep in comfort. The sofa bed in the family room is new (2011) and means we can now sleep 8 adults plus infants.

We have a cot and high chair.

Kitchen and dining: When we stay in the house we entertain our many local friends and family and can easily feed 12 on a regular basis, we have lots of pots and pans and crockery/cutlery! Unlike an average rental this is our family retreat and with 6 children it has to be on a large scale! You can park 5 or 6 cars on the drive and most guests agree there is little need or desire to go anywhere once you settle around the pool. Our only problem is we get too relaxed here and never make all the trips we intended!

We had a fantastic time in a beautiful house with a great pool. Owners and family wonderful. Siesta key and turtle beach amazing. Miss it and would love to return to it and a great area close to white sands!

Very well maintained property

  • 5 out of 5
The property was lovely and felt like a holiday home rather than a rental and was very nicely maintained. The owners daughter lived next door and was available if any issues. Were we to come back to Sarasota we would definitely stay here again. Good areas to visit St Armands Circle for nice restaurants and Siesta Key for relaxed dining and beach. Also well worth a visit to the Dali museum.

Wonderful Home in a Great Location

  • 5 out of 5
Having holidayed in the area a few times before we found this property which is close to the main routes into Sarasota and the beach to be the best we’ve stayed in yet. The house is very well appointed and together with the delightful pool; it is a wonderful relaxing place to return to after a day out sightseeing, shopping or the wonderful Siesta Key beach.
Annalise couldn’t have been more helpful when we needed her, and what’s more recommended the perfect place for brunch after an early morning walk along the shore, ‘Another broken Egg’ in Siesta Key Village.
Who couldn't love the area, it's a great place to stay with to much to see and do.
The only problem we had was that we didn’t stay long enough and we certainly hope to return.

EXCELLENT PROPERTY IN GREAT LOCATION

  • 5 out of 5
We found the location of this property in a quiet cul-de-sac but close to the main routes into Sarasota city centre and Siesta Key to be perfect. The house is beautifully furnished and well appointed. The totally secluded lanai area and heated pool are a delight. Oh the joys of a dip in the pool followed by a great steak on the barbecue on the patio!
The property is a short walk from an asian restaurant that we can highly recommend and just a short drive from many other good restaurants. A nearby Publix supermarket is superb and offers everything needed for a self catering holiday, perhaps supplemented by a nearby excellent wine supermarket.
As stated by other reviewers, having Annalise living next door is a real bonus. She made us feel very welcome and was always helpful without ever being intrusive.
We stayed for three weeks and it was our base for lots of golf on the many courses in the Sarasota area. We can highly recommend this property. So much better than the confines of a hotel room and much better value.

A real find

  • 5 out of 5
We spent ten lovely days here as an adult family group. The house completely fulfilled our expectations. It's light, spacious, comfortable and very attractively furnished and decorated. In a quiet, pretty, tree-lined neighbourhood, it's only minutes from the beautiful beaches of Siesta Key and the restaurants and shops on Tamiami Trail. It was a great to have Annalise, the owner's daughter, next door, as she was always ready with help and advice when we needed it. It was lovely to go out for the day and return to the house to relax by the pool and have a barbecue.

There's so much to do in and around Sarasota - highlights for us were the beaches, swimming with manatees in Crystal River, the fascinating Ringling house and gardens and and nearby Myakka State Park. We would love to return and discover more and would definitely recommend this property to family and friends.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind words Dorothy, I know Annalise really enjoyed meeting you and your family and we do hope you will return one day. I hope you are keeping safe, dry and warm and that your memories of the Sarasota sunshine will help you endure this dreadful January weather!

Only 10 minutes from the fine white sands of the Gulf of Mexico and our award winning beach, http://www.cnn.com/2011/TRAVEL/05/27/best.beaches. Moments from the many fabulous restaurants of the Tamiami Trail. A 20 minute drive will take you to the boutique shopping at St. Armands Key with its fine dining and Lido beach, drive across to Longboat Key and Anna Maria Island for a true Florida Keys experience. The famous Ringling Museum and Mansion, the art galleries of Palm Avenue, the Van Wezel concert hall, orchestra and ballet, the stylish new Selby public library and the many beautiful examples of Spanish architecture dating back to the 1920's all remind us that Sarasota truly is the cultural capital of Florida. However bargain hunters and fashionistas are not forgotten with excellent shopping malls within 10 minutes drive and a huge designer discount mall at Ellenton, 30 minutes away. Wildlife enthusiasts will enjoy Jungle Gardens, or a trip to the Myakka River to see the alligators
