Two of the bedrooms overlook the pool. The terrazzo granite floors throughout-out the home have been restored and the house is completely updated with new furniture, window treatments, linens. All beds are encased in 'Allergy Armour' mattress bags.

The house is located in a quiet residential neighborhood and a 15 minute walk gets you to Starbucks, a breakfast place, grocery store and other shopping.

About Linda

My family is large ...In the winter the 4 bedrooms mean that relatives can be coming and going and no one ends up on the sofa.

I walk my 18 lb dog to Starbucks in the morning when it's still cool out and both of us are happy the rest of the day! On the walk back home I pick up bagels at Publix and the rest of the family is also happy!

I try to respond immediately if anything comes up during the stay. Texting with me is generally gets an instant response.

Linda purchased this house in 2004

Why Linda chose Sarasota

After driving up and down both coasts over 3 winters I chose Sarasota because of the very established feel of the town.

Many of the developments were established years ago and the landscaping is mature and beautiful, The clean, modern style that is represented by the 'Sarasota School of Architecture' pops up here and there in the neighborhood.

The house is centrally located to the Gulf Gate Restaurant scene, Siesta Key Village and the downtown restaurants. The many beaches on Siesta Key are 4 miles from the house and Siesta Key Village is 4 miles from the house.

What makes this house unique

The house is spread out and there are several different places to relax.

Each person can have as much or as little privacy as they want. Most of the bedrooms have desks if you need to work remotely. One bedroom has ethernet to allow you to easily set up a VPN and run more reliably than a wireless network.

The pool area is so delightful that many guests have told me they never went to the beach.

We stayed a small week in this paradise in july, 2007. We had an excellent time. The house is just unbelievable with the large pool, the many bedrooms and bathrooms and the careful selected furniture. Extremely well-equippped, including PC internet connection and full operational kitchen.

Very recommendable.

Memories made for many years...

  • 5 of 5

My children and I have created many vacation and family memories in this house since 2007 and have enjoyed every stay. The layout and set up are perfect for both entertaining and privacy. One of the bedrooms serves as an in-law suite where my mom feels perfectly at home. The bedrooms are set up on either side of the house with the common space in the middle and the view of the pool can be seen from three sides. The house is equipped with all your beach and vacation needs. I can't say enough about how wonderful this property is! Whenever I mention the possibility of renting another house, we always come back to the greatness of this one. It really can't be beat!

Amazing home in beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

My family and I spent a week in this house in May. The house is amazing with lots of great outdoor space by the pool. The owner Linda was great to deal with and has added a number of thoughtful touches to this house really making it a home away from home. The location was brilliant with a great number of beautiful beaches right on your door step. Would definitely stay here again and would recommend to friends and family.

Awesome Pool House!!!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at this rental was amazing. The house and property are well maintained and the pool is awesome. The location is perfect. It is in a quiet neighborhood, close to food and shopping as well as 10 min from Siesta Key beach. House comes equipped with everything. There are also pool/beach toys, beach umbrella, and chairs. Linda is great and easy to reach if needed. I would definitely stay at this house again.

Our Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

This is our fourth time staying in this amazing house and every time has been just as good as the last. Everything you can possibly need is available in this home. Nothing beats having a nice big pool with an amazing view to relax. Also, having the solar heat on the pool is great on nights when it's cooler. We had six people in the house and we never felt crowded because it is so spacious. This place truly is our home away from home. We can't wait for next year!

What a nice place🌴

  • 5 of 5

We spent a full week with our dog at Linda's place. Very pretty house, beautiful pool, comfortable beds and quiet and friendly neighborhood. We just loved it. Linda was one phone call away, ready to answer any questions we might have. We had a great time despite a couple of heavy rainy days. The house location is very convenient for so many things and outings !
