The owner was really sweet and helpful, the property was functional and comfortable & well appointed

  • 4 of 5

Our overall experience with the property was good. There were a few circumstances outside of the control of the owner which affected our stay. The property immediately adjacent to the property is being renovated and the workers parked all over the road on a very narrow residential street, they also worked into the night. We also had the misfortune of having storm Hermine come through during our stay which shortened our stay, which while unfortunate, was not something the owner could have done anything to prevent or make our stay more enjoyable.

John, the owner was very considerate and helpful during our stay. He made himself available for issues that arose during our stay and did his best to assist us and to accommodate our needs, we appreciated his willingness to be helpful, from a distance, especially since this was our first visit to the area. John's property is very cute, and good for a traveling couple, I would not recommend the property for children, there is really no yard and the pool is very small, and the interior decor is furnished for adults and not children. If you are looking for a quiet getaway to the area in a unique home with character this place may be for you.

Amazing vacation and this house made it so!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home , very comfortable and centrally located. The pool was great and everything is very well maintained! The owner is very accommodating and easy to work with. We needed to check out a little later due to our flight and he worked it out with us. Can't wait to come back and stay here again and have suggested this house to many people.

Absolutely awesome!

  • 5 of 5

This house was like our home for this week vacation. It is filled with warmth and has a definit personal touch. The pool was great for our 8 year old daughter, but to tell you the truth, we all enjoyed it a lot.

The house is clean and has everything that a family would ever need for a stay in Sarasota. It is bright with natural sun light and beautifully furnished. John Clement is very helpful with guest's questions or concerns. It was our first time in Saratoga and it was an awesome experience. We will definitely come back.

Great Location

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay here. The house and furniture was very comfortable. The location is great for visiting nearby areas and beaches. We loved having the pool to hang out in on the days we weren't sight seeing.

Great place to stay with family or solo. Lots of space.

  • 5 of 5

I cannot put into words what I felt when entering your home. A sense of peace can't over me and I needed it due to the long and stormy drive in. This wonderful home is equipped with all that we needed and then some. Thank you a million times and look forward to my next stay.

Even better than pictures

  • 5 of 5

We were so very happy with this property Our only regret is we didn't stay longer! Immediately we were very impressed with the property - pictures did not do it justice. Its so roomy. Everything was in top shape and extremely clean and well cared for. The owner was above&beyond helpful, easy to work with- from booking to checkout and everything in between. Before we arrived we received the most helpful email detailing all the things in the house we would need to know with photographs It made planning for the trip easy and made us feel at home right away since there was no "figuring it all out' process when we checked in after a long day of travel. That's huge for me. Even things in the house are clearly labeled so you feel right at home right away.

We loved the pool and used it several times a day. It was perfect for the 2 of us to enjoy the sun and float away the day. The entire home was nice- but the pool made this perfect.

We loved how large the master bedroom was with a huge walk in closet and large bathroom. Our only slight negative is the shower/tub in the master sits quite high but is not deep so you have to step up quite high Because I wear contacts (not in shower) and am quite short I didn't feel safe stepping up and down that high - but it was no worries at all we just used the other full bathroom which actually worked well since you could enter directly from the pool It worked well for us.

We cooked in nearly every night and found the kitchen to be well stocked You can tell the owners take a lot of pride in the home. We loved the location - very easy to get to Siesta Key, shopping, grocery stores, but yet it felt tucked away and quiet Best of both worlds.

It was quite warm while we were there - found AC ceiling fans and a dehumidifier feature kept the house very comfortable.

The bedrooms are on complete opposite sides of the home and there is a pocket door that you can close from living room so although the 2nd bedroom does not have direct access to the full bath- you could close for privacy making this a great property great to share with another couple etc

We loved the library and it made for a cozy area to relax each night.

Loved having the full garage it kept the car cool and safe and because it leads right into the kitchen it was easy to unload.

We almost didn't want to share so we can keep it as our secret- but the owners deserves positive notes it was so great Minutes into being there we already wanted to plan to return
