Convenient and charming

  • 5 of 5

We loved our time at this property, the host was tremendously helpful and attentive, and the place was perfect for our needs. The location was wonderful, an easy walk to great restaurants and shops and attractions, and we were even able to catch a bus to the beach! Would highly recommend this rental for anyone wanting to experience what Sarasota has to offer.

We spent 4 months here and it was a very pleasant experience. Great location and interesting neighborhood. Felt safe and secure all the time. Owner was very responsive to requests and was easy to work with. Great place to store bikes, kayaks, fishing and beach gear. Highly recommended.
