Why Roy Jacobson chose Sarasota

This is a gem of a property in Northwest Sarasota. Old Florida neighborhood with large oak trees dripping in Spanish moss, mature tropical landscaping and water access. So close to the restaurants, night life and theaters of downtown Sarasota yet feels like a tropical paradise. Very safe and friendly.

The unofficial slogan in this neighborhood is "wouldn't want to live anywhere else".

What makes this apartment unique

One of a kind! Most vacation rentals you find in Sarasota share amenities with other guests or the owner. With this unique property you will enjoy your own private pool, outdoor shower, hot tub, covered lanai and privacy fencing. Complete freedom to enjoy paradise as you please. Very friendly, safe, quiet neighborhood on the edge of downtown Sarasota and beaches.

The house was clean, welcoming, and convenient.

  • 5 of 5

The house felt like home almost instantly. The kitchen is supplied with cooking equipment so staying in for the day is an easy option. The owner made the home very welcoming while keeping our privacy in tact! An excellent stay and i would recommend this house and owner to any freind or family that plans to stay in Sarasota!

We stayed here for 5 nights and thought the property was great and exactly as described. The outdoor area and large pool is a one of and a perfect place to relax. Roy was an excellent host and nice touches were a welcoming bottle of wine and a daily supply of oranges for squeezing. We would highly recommend this rental. One minor point - it would have been nice to have had access to network TV to watch the Masters golf !

Nice apartment in a beautiful setting

  • 5 of 5

We spent a bit more than 3 weeks at this apartment and enjoyed our stay, especially the big outdoor area with garden and a great pool. THe neighborhood is also very beautiful, neat the Sarasota Bay, and is safe to walk or bike around. ALso close to downtown or LIdo by car. The apartment is on the small side but has been well renovated and is comfortable. Roy, the host, is a very nice man, always ready to help. We recommend it.

Relaxing quiet and comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

I arrived at the property in the evening and found the home very clean and inviting and had no problem setteling in as if it were my own. Although the temps were quite cool during my stay and could not use all the amenities it has to offer. But overall the place was very nice, relaxing and accomodating.
