Pictures of Sarasota are awash with colour, from the stunning white of the beaches to the rich blue of the Gulf of Mexico and from the rich greens of tropical vegetation to the burning oranges of the sunsets. Once you have taken a Sarasota holiday rental once, you will undoubtedly want to return, and many visitors are soon calling Sarasota home! With paradise style scenery, endless entertainment, excellent shopping, fine restaurants and the famous Florida climate all combining perfectly, it is little wonder that holiday villas in Sarasota are in such high demand all year round.
Much of your time from a Sarasota holiday home will be spent relaxing on the glorious beaches of Florida’s Gulf Coast. Sarasota Bay is lined with brilliant white sand, with the beaches of Longboat Key, Lido Key and Siesta Key at your disposal.
The beaches of Sarasota Bay are the perfect place from which to take a Sarasota fishing holiday. The warm waters of the Gulf of Mexico thrive with marine life, meaning that during a single Sarasota fishing trip you could land a trophy barracuda, bluefish, black bass, grouper, mackerel, trigger fish, snook or trout to name a selection. Sarasota fishing guides are available from tourist information spots, fishing shops and along the major piers of the area. If you are hoping to go fishing from a Sarasota property, there are plenty of options available, from beach fishing to chartering a captained fishing boat deep in the Gulf of Mexico.
Family holidays to a Sarasota home are well catered for too. There are a wealth of attractions within the town, from the Gulfcoast Wonder and Imagination Zone (G.WIZ) to the Sarasota Jungle Gardens. Keeping children active and happy is easy from a Sarasota holiday rental. The magic of taking a canoe slowly through the mangrove forests is simply unbeatable, especially when you grab your first glimpse of a manatee swimming serenely through the water. The wildlife of the Sarasota area is so rich that bike rides, walk and boat trips always capture the imagination. If a day of sport and activity takes its toll, there are plenty of spa resorts in easy reach of a Sarasota property!

Florida is known as the ‘Sunshine State’ due to its glorious and highly enviable climate. Even during the grips of winter, Sarasota basks in daily temperatures which reach the high 20’s (˚C) on a regular basis. Rain is rare, and disappears as quickly as it arrived. In the long summers, average temperatures are an amazing 31˚C, with daily peaks often reaching the 40˚C mark.
The proximity of Sarasota/Bradenton Airport (SRQ) makes reaching a Sarasota home remarkably easy. Sarasota Airport does not receive direct flights from the UK, but there are plentiful short flights from Atlanta (ATL) and Miami (MIA), so reaching your Sarasota accommodation is easily done.
