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.
