                                      A very happy return

                                      We have been visiting the Sarasota area for almost 20 years and this was our second stay at this house with our two children and their partners. Nothing disappointed. The owners have done some superb landscaping beside the bayou. The house is still in excellent condition and we understand there is an imminent refurbishment in the pipeline, which speaks volumes for the quality of the property. Attractions? Excellent beach just across the road, good sized pool, some top quality restaurants, lots of interesting things to do in the area, manatees in the bayou, ospreys seemingly everywhere, and all sorts of wildlife everywhere you look. Our son in law fished in the bayou every day and did some deep sea fishing in the boat of a neighbour who has a commercial venture. Unusual and highly recommended - De Soto Speedway with an early dinner at Linger Lodge (one of the most bizarre restaurants in US and surprisingly good)! Also the Old Packinghouse Bar with superb blues and country music nights. We were very sorry to leave.
