Sunshine is wonderful, physically and mentally!!!! The restaurants and shopping rivals New York...no kidding.

Visited relatives in Sarasota and fell in love with the area and this lovely, safe, neighborhood. It truly is paradise with people from all over the USA and the world......warm and friendly atmosphere all around you.

What makes this apartment unique

We love our quiet, safe neighborhood, all the sunshine and the closeness to the beach. We enjoy walking, biking, boating, fishing and great 'chef owned' restaurants. We also love all the cultural events in downtown Sarasota.....P.S. The shopping is terrific too!

Beautifully maintained, cozy apartment, awesome dog!

  • 5 of 5

It was in a great location for Siesta Beach and the Village. Within walking distance to stores and restaurants. (There's a new Mexican restaurant off Stickney Point called "The Plaza" - it's outstanding). Friendly neighbors - mainly families with children and pets.

Marlene and Steve are generous and wonderful hosts and their dog Grover could not be a more welcoming presence for you and your dogs. Amazing back yard with pool, wonderful dog friendly neighborhood that's a quick bike ride away from Siesta Key. Your little pooch will even have his/her own fenced backyard which came in very handy for potty training -- our puppy learned to paw at the door to go out while there.

Home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

A home away from home, a headquarters for enjoying the Suncoast of Florida, .a quiet, sunlit retreat------ these are a few of the attributes of the rental on Beechwood.

This rental features the kind of amenities that we find indispensable.

Conveniently located from points of interest, stores and restaurants.

We love the short walk to beach.

And, as an extra bonus, you could not find a more gracious and helpful host and hostess.

This is the kind of place that we look forward to visiting again and again.

What a fun place!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here in October, 2015. My wife and I enjoyed our stay as it was a great place, bright and cheerful. We loved the outdoor space and BBQ. Walked the beach every morning. Lovely safe neighbor. Marlene and Steve , the owners, were really nice and very helpful. Loved Sarasota!

Even better than last time

  • 5 of 5

This is my second time staying here and the place is as cute as ever. Marlene and Steve were still helpful and eager to please The new driveway was very convenient and the new patio area was very welcoming. My little dog enjoyed playing with Grover.

The place is in a fabulous location, just a short drive to the beach and convenient to all Sarasota attractions

Wonderful Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My stay was wonderful. The apartment is just as cute as the pictures. My little dog Mickey loved cooling off in the pool. You couldn't ask for nicer people to deal with than Steve and Marlene. If you needed anything they were both always available. Grover, their dog is the sweetest dog you will every meet. He is truly a gentle giant and loved by everyone.

The area is very nice and felt very safe. Wonderful walking also and a very nice church a block away to let your dog play.

Can't say enough nice things about my 2 month stay. You won't be disappointed......Great, great location

Car: recommended

Located in a beautiful, quiet neighborhood just minutes from Siesta Key, away from the noise and traffic of the Key, and much more affordable. We are 20 minutes from chic downtown Sarasota shops and restaurants, and are 20-30 minutes from most local attractions, such as the Ringling Museum, Mote Marine Aquarium, Sarasota Opera House, Van Wezel Performing Arts Center, Selby Botanical Gardens, movie complex's and much more. We are minutes away from Gulf Gate restaurants and shops, with many chef owned/family owned restaurants serving a variety of Ethnic and American cuisine ....truly a 'foodie's' paradise. Within minutes we have a French Pastry Bakery, a German Bread Bakery, an Asian market, an English Tea Shoppe, a 'New York Style' deli, an Italian market and café, and some terrific pizza. We also have some world class steak houses and fresh seafood restaurants. As we like to say, 'So many restaurants, so little time' :)
