About Denise Kowal
We support a healthy lifestyle, beautiful surroundings and memorable experiences. We enjoy the outdoors, sports, culture and the arts.
Denise Kowal purchased this Studio in 1986
Why Denise Kowal chose Downtown
The Mediterranean property is historic and designed by the same architect that designed the Ca d'Zan at the Ringling Museum. It was built as the southern gateway vista into the city from the rich southern neighborhoods. The rooms are decorated beautifully so it is not just a bed but an experience. Located in the safe and south area of downtown Sarasota in Burns Square. We are in walking distance of just about anything you would want to do and surrounded by high-end residential neighborhoods and parks. It is a beautiful area.
What makes this Studio unique
While you are in an urban environment it has a neighborhood feel. The view out the window is of S. Pineapple Avenue shopping and spas with a mural by famous Brazil street artists Eduardo Kobra of a 1940's photograph of Sarasota.

Very clean and super nice management
I did review already but it was very clean and pleasant and safe area to walk around.
Denise was quick to respond to any of our questions. We had a wonderful experience again this year.
charming room, perfect location!
The studio room was being repaired so we were upgraded to a one bedroom. Being morning people, we loved watching the sunrises in the morning while laying in bed. The mattress was very comfortable, as well as the rest of the furniture in the room. The kitchen and bathroom had everything we needed. Denise even brought us a bag of beach towels, which was very helpful for us, as we didn't have room in our suitcases. We especially appreciated how welcoming Denise was with our little dog, who came with us on vacation. One of the best features was the central location to so many great restaurants. We try to eat healthy, and there were so many farm-to-table restaurants within a 5-10 minute walk from the room. Not to mention only a 5-10 minute walk to the ocean, the Botanical Gardens (worth seeing!), a large park for our dog, and much more. We are certainly planning on coming back and would highly recommend this as a place to stay, especially if you need a place that allows pets!
nice room, central Sarasota location
If you have in mind the equivalent of a nice large and equipped hotel room, you will be pleased with this bright, charming and nicely located option in a charming neighborhood, just a few minutes walk to downtown, Bayfront Park, botanical garden, farmer's market, etc., and just a block away from the classic Owen's Fish Camp. Large bed, sofa, large closet, small breakfast table (no desk)... No kitchen per se (don't plan on actually cooking), but microwave & small bar fridge, coffee-maker in a corner nook, with a small selection of dishes, glasses, cups, silverware (could use a few more things, e.g., bowls). Bathroom is small but clean; shower water pressure is on the low side but functional. WiFi worked well. All-in-all, quite nice. We'd be happy to return.
Burns Square is located in the southern part of downtown Sarasota nestled between high-end residential neighborhoods Palm Avenue, Laurel Park and Hudson Bayou. It is safe and historic district with boutiques, shopping, spas, restaurants and Burns Court Cinema. Only two blocks from Marina Jacks and waterside dining, many parks, Florida Studio Theater, Urbanite Theater, Players Theater, Van Wezel Performance Theater, Sarasota Opera, library, McCurdy's Comedy Club, Gator Club, Hollywood 20 AMC, Whole Foods, Publix, Selby Botanical Gardens and public transportation to name a few. Only a few miles to the beaches so staying downtown gives you tons to do during the days and evenings while its only a short trip to the beach for a few hours. Or spend the day going to museums such as the Ringling Museum, Circus Museum or Car Museum. Sarasota Airport is only 15 minutes away. The area has a plethora of art and culture so it is not a matter of if anything is going on but choosing between all the offerings from live theater, ballet, opera, concerts, festivals, farmer's markets and boating and sports activities. We are only 10 minutes from Ed Smith Stadium or 25 from the Benderson Rowing Facilities and Lakewood Ranch Polo Fields. There are many gyms, pools and activities and we are just blocks from a YMCA.
