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!

Our party consisted of my wife, myself, 2 youngest sons (21 & 18) and our grandsons aged 5 &2. The property is as described, fantastic location, and the owner could not have been more helpful in returning some property we accidentally left behind! I was a little concerned regarding the 'salt' water swimming pool especially for our grandsons, but this was no problem at all.We have stayed in many properties over the years, both in central Fla, and along the Gulf coast. This is simply the best accommodation we have stayed in, and sincerely hope to return in the near future. Cannot recommend highly enough. Thanks again, Susan & Annalise & we look forward to returning soon.

The home is well equipped with quality furniture and fittings, with an extensive floor- plan and large garage. The pool area is exceptional with a spa pool, patio sofa set, table and seating for 6, umbrella, recliners and a BBQ area, together with lighting and fan over the sofa set and a remote control for the pool and spa features. The owner, Jean-Charles, ensured our stay was enjoyable with good liaison and local management available for service and maintenace of the property and grounds. We played golf at Rosedale and some of the many other local courses, with beautiful white beaches approximately 30 mins drive away not to be missed. There are an abundance of dining and shopping options in the Sarasota/Bradenton area within easy driving distance and Sunday Buffet Brunch is enjoyable at Tara Country Club, Peridia Country Club and Pier 22 on the river front in Bradenton in particular. We look forward to returning in the future. John and Valerie.
