About Don Vigil

Our family is from Albuquerque, New Mexico, where my wife and I own small businesses. Our son is an illustrator who graduated from Ringling College of Art in Sarasota, and our daughter is in the jewelry business in Denver. She and her husband have a baby boy and a toddler girl.

Don Vigil purchased this cottage in 2006

Why Don Vigil chose Sarasota

This cozy little place was purchased when our son was a student at The Ringling College of Art, since it was so close to school. We decided to hang on to it after he graduated giving us a new and interesting place for us to spend vacations, especially during the winter.

"Old" Florida for Today

  • 5 of 5

The Ringling cottage and the neighborhood it is in are fine examples of Old Florida. I'm guessing the cottage itself was built in the 30's or 40's, but has been well maintained and updated just enough to be the perfect comfortable beach town cottage. We loved it.

The neighborhood is the same way. Quite a few old houses and some not so old. Some are almost shacks and some are grand bayfront estates worth millions. Also, the neighborhood landscape is lush and tropical. You can easily sense the jungle Florida wants to naturally be. Don't be scared of it. Walk around at least 3 blocks in every direction to experience the real Florida.

The cottage itself is comfortable and has all the amenities needed for a short or extended stay. The location can't be beat. From downtown Sarasota to every beach between Venice and Holmes on Anna Maria Island, everything is easy and quick to get to.

I would stay there again anytime.

Had a great time.

  • 5 of 5

Some of the blinds do not look like the picture any more. Missing a few slats. The full size mattress is in need of a replacement. Other then these small little details it was a great little cottage. We spent 5 nights and used just for sleeping. A lot to do in the area. We had typical south Florida weather for the month of July. Very quiet at night.

Wonderful

Great place to stay! Super clean, nicely decorated. Close to lots of local attractions! Loved sitting on the screened in porch reading in the afternoons and watching the geckos. This was our first vrbo experience and based on it, we will choose vrbo over a hotel from now on!

This cozy cottage is close to the best that Sarasota has to offer. It is just 5 to 10 minutes to the fabulous Ringling Museum, Ringling Circus Museum and downtown Sarasota, not to mention Sarasota-Bradenton Airport. It is just two blocks to the Ringling College of Art and ten minutes to New College of Florida and the University of South Florida. In addition, the location is within fifteen minutes of fabulous shopping at St. Armand's Circle and the sugar white, nationally ranked Siesta Key Beach.
