About the property

Paradise awaits in this Charming single family house within a quick walk to the best of St. Almands Circle. Walk to fabulous restaurants, art, and unique boutiques, and float home after a couple of refreshing cocktails at one of many bars. Within a couple of blocks, enjoy one of the best beaches in the country, the famous Lido beach with it's white quarts sand that doesn't get hot even when you are. The Gulf is a soothing oasis even for the most cold blooded northerner. Just minutes to aquarium, museum, and botanical gardens. Enjoy Saturday morning at the downtown farmers market with a fresh cup of coffee and fresh vegetables and other local delicacies.

You'll wonder why you haven't been here before and why would you want to go home.

About Candy Thompson

We love to travel but there's nothing like sleeping in your own bed at home. We chose St. Almands Circle because it feels like your on a tropical island and yet your just minutes to everything your used to having.

Candy Thompson purchased this house in 2009

Why Candy Thompson chose Sarasota

Like they say, location, location, location. minutes from the airport, major interstate highway, shopping, sightseeing, beaches, and once your here, there really is no need to have to drive. Everything for a great vacation is within walking distance.

What makes this house unique

Trouble free living. Sit on the back porch, swing on the hammock under palm trees. The house is very accessible and easy to use without much if any maintenance. large living room and very modern kitchen just remolded make it a pleasure to entertain or just relax at home.

Walk to everything, including beach!!!

  • 5 of 5

This rental property was amazing! Right next to St. Armand's circle for great food and wonderful shopping just a hop, skip and a jump away :-). I walked to the beach every morning and we watched some gorgeous sunsets in the evenings. The home is decorated so nice with a different beach theme in each room. Very cozy and it really does feel like home. The home is stocked with everything you will need from a fully stocked kitchen to an ample supply of towels and bedding. The beds are very comfortable, slept like a baby :-) The property includes a grill, a beautiful backyard with a very quality hammock. There are a couple of beach chairs and umbrella for the beach and some bikes to ride. The owners are an absolute joy to work with. We will DEFINITELY be renting this home again! Loved it!!!

Location, location, location!

  • 5 of 5

We're just finishing up a 2 month rental. Can't say enough about the location. Literally 4 houses from St Armand's Circle and a 10 min. Walk or less from lovely (non-commercial)

Lido Beach. The house is very cute, roomier than it appears in the photos, and very comfortable with lots of storage space. The backyard was a big hit when the Grandkids came for a visit.

The restaurant dining options were limitless but having a backyard BBQ grill was a real bonus as well.

The owners were very easy to contact and very responsive before and during the rental.

Would we come back? .......definitely. A great experience all round.

We had a wonderful Christmas in this perfect size house. Just big enough to do baking and holiday cooking. The location was perfect for eating, shopping and the beach. I would diffinitly rent again and also recommend renting.
