Elegant and quiet property

  • 5 of 5

As we drove into the gated property, the well manicured cured lawn and beautiful lake view welcomed us onto a place like no other. As we made our way into our rental, me and my fiance were impressed with the cozy and inviting space, there was a bottle of wine waiting for us, a personal welcome note (you don't get that at hotels) and a bag of tasty chips with salsa to kick off our vacation. The owners made sure everything we might need was within reach and we loved the informative bulletin about the neighborhood. The property was clean and it felt like we had the whole property to ourselves. We will definitely be back!!!!!!

Wonderfu Stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at this property! My husband was in town for business and we wanted someplace quiet to stay for myself and our two young daughters. We used to live in the area and are familiar with Osprey and The Oaks (the most upscale neighborhood in the area). It is a residential neighborhood, so you really feel at home. The condo was VERY clean--I'd even say spotless (and I'm very picky)! The kitchen and the rest of the condo was equipped with everything we needed. There were even beach chairs, beach towels, and umbrellas. There were plenty of bath towels and blankets. The pool is not heated, so was too cold to swim in in the winter, but my daughters still had fun getting their feet wet. We also had fun spotting waterfowl, turtles, and alligators in the lake that the condo overlooks. Everything was very quiet. I would recommend this condo to anyone looking for a quiet, low-key place to stay. It's not within walking distance to anywhere, so having a car is a must. However, there are plenty of attractions and shopping just 5 minutes away. Siesta Key is a short drive up the road. Don't miss the chance to visit Historic Spanish Point, a unique 30 acre outside museum located across the road from The Oaks. I used to teach in Sarasota and would go every year on a field trip. It's still one of my favorite places. Mote Aquarium is another must see and is just a short drive away. Also, if you like sushi, Thai Wasabi up on Clark Rd. is one of our favorites. Vizen is also excellent for a more unique, but truly delicious sushi experience.

A perfect place to relax - Erholung pur

  • 5 of 5

Leider ging die Zeit in der Windsor Lodge viel zu schnell vorbei. Das Apartment liegt in einer bewachten Anlage mit nur wenigen Einheiten, so dass man den Pool fast immer für sich allein hat.

Die Ausstattung ist perfekt – es wurde an alles gedacht. Die Möbel und das Interior sind sehr hochwertig und gepflegt.

Der Weg zum Siesta Key – USA Strand Nr. 1 – beträgt 10 min. mit dem Auto und in der Nähe (maximal 5 min. Fahrzeit) sind Geschäfte und jede Menge Restaurants.

Die Abwicklung mit der Agentur war sehr angenehm und professionell und da Frau Gorenflo u.a. auch deutsch spricht sehr einfach. Jede Anfrage wurde in kürzester Zeit beantwortet und zu unserer Zufriedenheit gelöst.

Wir können das Apartment nur empfehlen und werden wieder kommen.

Unfortunately, the time in the Windsor Lodge passed far too quickly. The apartment is located in a gated community with only a few units, so that you almost have the pool to yourself.

The equipment is perfect - it was thought of everything. The furniture and the interior are very high quality and well maintained.

The way to Siesta Key - USA Beach No. 1 - is 10 min. by car and nearby (max 5 min. drive) are shops and plenty of restaurants.

The settlement with the agency was very pleasant and professional and because Mrs. Gorenflo, also speaks German, very simple. Each query was answered in the shortest possible time and resolved to our satisfaction.

We highly recommend this apartment and will come back again.

Our apartment #17 is on the ground floor of the impressive Windsor Lodge. With only 15 units, the Lodge was built on the grounds of the exclusive The Oaks Club. Our second unit #3 is accessible via HomeAway object number 2096688 and object #10 via HomeAway object number 2082065. The amenities for our guests include a beautiful swimming pool with a large pool deck, deck chairs and bathrooms, as well as a lobby on the ground floor of the Lodge.

The Oaks Club amenities such as golf course, tennis courts, club house, etc. are only available to The Oaks Club members and their guests. However, when you are interested, the owner would be happy to arrange for a tour of the club…

Osprey is located on Florida's west coast at the Gulf of Mexico, south of Sarasota and north of Venice. Only minutes away is Siesta Key (voted #1 Beach in the US 2011) and exclusive Casey Key and its beaches.

Osprey is home to Historic Spanish Point, a 30-acre museum and environmental complex.

Osprey is also the mailing address for Oscar Scherer State Park and its Blackburn Point Bridge (leading to Casey Key) is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

Endless activities outside of Osprey are accessible within a few minutes by car: The museums and theatres of Sarasota, the old town and shops of Venice, the big malls and outlet centers, world class dining, golf courses, tennis courts, bike trails, boating and so much more.

To Tampa/St. Petersburg it takes you 1 hour by car. There you will find Bush Gardens and the Adventure Island water park. Or do you want to visit the Dali Museum or explore The Pier or are you more interested in the Museum of Science and Industry (MOSI)?

To Orlando you will drive 2 hours. All the theme parks are a highlight, but just to stroll through downtown is worth going there as well.

You will reach the Everglades to the south within a 2 hour-ride, passing e.g. Fort Myers with the opportunity to visit the Edison & Ford Winter Estates.

Contact us for more attractions, detailed information and personal insights around the area - we are happy to help.

Additional Airports:

1 hour 15 minutes: Tampa International Airport / TPA– (please note: Air Edelweiss has direct flights from Zürich since May 2012)

1 hour 15 minutes: Fort Myers International Airport / RSW – (please note: Air Berlin direct flights from Düsseldorf)

2 hours 30 minutes: Orlando International Airport

3 hours 30 minutes: Miami International Airport

Just some of the additional “things to do”:

- Legacy trail of Sarasota County: Take the bike just 2 streets north into Preymore Street, follow till the end and you will have access to that 10 miles long biking and hiking trail (starts at South Sarasota ends at the old train station in Venice).

- South Shetty on Casey Key: 10 minutes by car to the south. Take your time and observe dolphins, manatees, ospreys, pelicans, sandpipers, egrets, blue herons and much more.

- You love to visit theatres, musicals, concerts, the ballet, the opera or a museum? This is just a short list of what the area has to offer: Van Wezel Performing Arts Hall Sarasota, Asolo Theatre Sarasota, Venice Little Theatre, The John & Mable Ringling Museum of Art Sarasota, Asian Museum Sarasota, Salvador Dali Museum St. Petersburg, Museum of Fine Arts St. Petersburg, The Players Sarasota, Friday Evening Walk through the opened artist studios in Sarasota, Florida Studio Theatre Sarasota and of course all the open air concerts with all different styles of music.

- Golf: There are around 30 golf courses in the Sarasota area. The closest semi-private one is the Calusa Lakes Golf Club in Nokomis – 15 minutes by car.

- Tennis: The closest public tennis courts (with light) are at Pine View School (after school hours and on weekends) – 5 minutes by car.

- Grocery shopping at Publix or Walmart: 5 minutes by car
