About Herb L.
We both chose Sarasota for the best of all worlds and together discovered the Indian Beach neighborhood - a very special place. Here we have both privacy and proximity to downtown Sarasota and everything it has to offer!
Herb L. purchased this Cottage in 2015
Why Herb L. chose Indian Beach Sapphire Shores
We saw that the two cottages near our house had some real potential and were concerned that someone would just "scrape" and build something big and new -- something that could look out of place in this older neighborhood. We hoped to preserve the wonderful character of Indian Beach.

Cottage was comfy and had what a needed for my short stay in Sarasota. Herb stopped by to check in to see if I needed anything.
Scruffy Cottage —reminder of Old Florida.
Staying in Darla and Herb’s cottage was a delight. It has the charm of Old Florida with tasteful renovations, antique painted furniture and Darla’s lovely animal paintings. It is very close to the Ringling Museum and walking distance to the Ringling College. It’s in a great neighborhood for biking where you will see small Florida home next to mansions.
Perfect little house in a nice neighborhood.
All was good. Herb checked on us twice to make sure everything was ok (which it was). We hope to return.
Scruffy was perfect
Loved staying at Scruffy when I picked my son up from Ringing College. The house is so cute and the hosts go above and beyond to make you feel right at home. Will definitely be staying here again when I come to Sarasota.
We loved the Cottage, the place was very well put together, very comfortable, very clean. We felt very welcomed.
We only stayed for 2 nights but we wished we could stay longer.
Would stay again
The cottage was perfect for my husband and I. I also worked part of the time while there and had everything I needed. We especially appreciated the additional and thoughtful touches by Darla and Herb. The cottage was exactly what you'd want in a vacation rental, but rarely find. We'd recommend it to anyone
