Live in paradise! Experience the true serenity of Sarasota Bay with this beautiful home. This multi-million home offers spacious living space and breath taking views in the heart of beautiful Sarasota. Enjoy magnificent sunsets and private white sand beach in the comfort of your own magnificent Mediterranean home. For a real resort experience, we offer kayaks, a ping-pong table and more at your own accommodation.

We understand that you have many choices when it comes to choosing a house in Sarasota. However, in all honesty, you are not renting a regular vacation rental when you book this home. You are renting an experience and memories that will last forever. Having the water in your backyard and seeing the most amazing sunsets in the world while the kids are kayaking or fishing in front of you is a feeling that few are lucky enough to experience in a lifetime.... We promise you that the experience will be unbelievable as it has for so many other renters before you and we are so grateful we can offer this paradise to you and your family that no other homes in the area can offer…

It really does not get any better than this and we invite you with open arms to come live the dream. If your dates are not open on our calendar, we also rent the neighborhing home :) (Homeaway Listing #338161)

Big house with a great layout and amazing view!

  • 5 of 5

Very nice house - spacious, clean, and a short drive to downtown Sarasota and Lido Key. Communication with Marc (the owner) as easy and he was very helpful with any questions. My family of 10 loved staying here and would highly recommend the house. Thanks for the wonderful memories!

Family memory

  • 5 of 5


We just left yesterday from a wonderful vacation at your home. The ages of our family ranged from 1 to 63. Everything was wonderful. The kayaks were so relaxing. The small sand filled area was a great way to introduce the 1 and 2 year olds to the beach. The 5 and 8 year old loved the pool and the adults loved the spaciousness of your house. The kitchen was well equipped and cooking Thanksgiving dinner was so enjoyable with the view of the bay. The bicycles were fun and the ping pong table was used for tournaments. The high chair, pack-n-play and the strollers were used and greatly appreciated. Thank you for a wonderful memory for our family. Rick and Nancy Meyer

Great relax time for my family

  • 4 of 5

Loved the house. Was not familiar with the area- my fault not owner thought private beach meant you could actually swim right there. We had to drive to the beach to swim. We are from NY, was my first vacation to Florida. Kids loved the kayaking and they didn't mind driving to the beach. Although I could had done without the smell outside, we got used to it... wasn't as bad at night when we were in the pool and spa.

The master bed was very difficult to sleep in, I actually slept on the couch due to the bed being beyond firm. The other beds in the house were not as firm...so I was told.

Overall a great house, beautiful views.

Would come again with my foam mattress topper!!

Home is very very tired! Needs a through cleaning and air conditioners adjusted. There was NO hot water in master bath even after mtc. came, you have to shower in another room. Only two extra blankets and two pillows for 6 bedrooms, had to use beach towels for blankets. When a mtc. issue was made owner sent e-mail to vacate the property and I could be refunded. Unfortunately I did not see within his timeframe, and how do you do that with a wedding near the premise and 11+ guests. 9 of the 11 guests were bitten by bugs, either from the bay or beds. Short of calling my own exterminator no proof of bed bugs but pictures to prove bites. Master bedroom on second floor there is a box springs with no mattress and only one bed in the entire 6 bedroom house is a normal bed. All other beds are inches from the floor not good for elderly but great for toddlers. Could not use the bay access....all tree roots and bug infested. Needs to be treated, cleaned and raked. Pool was nice but never saw anyone come to clean. Lots of room! Perfect for multiple families. Kitchen well equipped. Every other light bulb was out, I am sure for a utility cost savings but on the stove too......that's a little excessive. Also there are two extra refrigerators in garage entrance, which is very nice, but probably because the main fridge in the kitchen is plugged in with an extension cord. Totally ILLEGAL!!! Offered a discount to come back, not going to use it. Could not wait to get home to my own bath and bed.

Owner's Response: Before answering this review, I would like to give our side of the story. It is important to note that absolutely everyone in this group was kind and satisfied with the home except the person writing the review. In fact, as the person who wrote this review was complaining to our maintenance manager at the property, arriving guests were all talking about how fantastic the property was! After a single trip to the house when we were called to help with issues, we immediately knew we could never meet this guests expectations. Therefore, we did offer to provide a full refund if the house was vacated as we felt bad forcing someone to stay in our property if they made it clear the house was not up to their expectations. Of course, this person decided to stay, “eat the food”, and then complaint about how bad it was. I will now address every problem one by one: Thorough cleaning: House is cleaned professionally. Air conditioners adjusted: House has thermostats with individual zones, not sure what the complaint is as the guest controls temperature. No hot water: 0 complaints from guests before and after this person, hot water is working fine and just takes a little bit to reach the faucets/shower. Blankets/Pillows: No phone call requesting pillows or blankets, we do not have a crystal ball unfortunately to guess more were needed. Bug bites/landscaping growth: It is Florida, absolutely nothing we can do about outside flies. Happy to share landscaping contracts to anyone requesting, weekly service like all neighbors. Bulbs out: Again, no phone call at all or they would have been replaced immediately. In short, we understand we are not perfect and try to take care of this home as much as we can but this person may have forgotten that about 700 people come through here every year. Obviously, the home is going to have suitcase scratches on the walls, loose things here and there, etc..etc.. We do our best to keep on top of things but guest comments/advice is the only real way we can find out about most issues and have them fixed. We do not mind taking blame, learning from our mistakes, and ensuring any issues are resolved for our guests. However, this was the first time in over 300 rentals and 3,000 guests we knew immediately from the attitude of this rude and offensive guest we could never match the expectations and decided we should just offer a full refund. It is a shame as the rest of the group was simply fantastic and we would love to have them back.
