With our concept we want to fill all the gaps that we experienced during our holidays as private holiday-makers, with and without children.

From directions that lead to nowhere, to inadequately equipped apartments, which do not have a contact person and that no one on site feels responsible for, from missing breakfast coffee after the first night to incalculable extra charges and supplements.

Together with your booking confirmation you will receive a sketch with the directions that will lead you safely and without detours. In your temporary home you will find an initial equipment containing soft drinks as well as a breakfast basket.

To plan your trips you won't have to do research, collect brochures and buy street maps because with us elaborate suggestions await you that are easily accomplished with an already programmed GPS. www.tropicalfruitgarden.com

Excellent location, accommodation- Wonderful Hosts

  • 5 of 5

We were a UK family of 4 with two teenagers and could not ask for more. The hosts Astrid and Andi could not have been more helpful and were the warmest hosts we have ever met. We stayed in Apartment Lemon and it was very comfortable, spacious, practical and clean. Thought has gone into both design and making your stay easy to manage. I had no arguments from my children who enjoyed their stay and loved playing in the swimming pool an added bonus for starting the day, or end of day relaxation. Really appreciated the thought that has gone into our stay and was made easy, for example beach towels, umbrellas and beach chairs . The location is excellent and you are around the corner for convenience stores and a few miles away from the beach and Sarasota. There are numerous attractions nearby, beautiful beaches, and is a great location to explore the gulf coast.

Highly recommended and excellent value for money

Nice and Friendly

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I and a grandson stayed in apartment 5, while my son, wife and five kids stayed in the Villa. The accommodations were clean, well furnished, and had everything we needed during our four night stay. The location is in a safe, quite, and relaxing residential neighborhood that is close to stores, restaurants, and is only a 25 minute drive to the beach. The owners, Astrid and Andy, who are also the operators, are dedicated to providing the best stay possible to their guests. We recommend Tropical Fruit Garden to anyone traveling to the Sarasota area.

Nice and clean inside, not so much outside

  • 3 of 5

The apartment was basic but very nice. Everything you would need was there. The welcoming food to make a nice breakfast on arrival was great as we arrived at 9.30 a.m. after driving for 24 hours. The biggest thing for us the that it was very clean throughout. However we were disappointed in the grounds and the swimming pool. The introduction says it is landscaped but we believe it needs some work to be more inviting outside. The deck at the back was not level so we could not sit out there for coffee. A small table and chairs in front of each unit would be nice. We were able to sit in the sun around the pool but the water itself was never warm enough for swimming although they said it was heated. Out of 28 days there we nobly went in the water once. Another big thing for us was to have wi-fi and the wi-fi there was not good at all. It was very slow and at times it would freeze our computer.

Very clean and very comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

It was a totally WOW! experience staying in the Villa for 4 nights. After a tiring 9 hour drive and arriving close to 11pm we were welcomed very friendly and the tastefully decorated and very clean villa certainly impressed us. It was furnished with everything we needed and we had a wonderful, peaceful stay.

Thank you!

2 недели как дома

  • 5 of 5

Мы останавливались в апартаментах Banana в июле 2014. Описание жилья полностью соответствует заявленному. Все аккуратно, чисто и исправно. За время пребывания не столкнулись ни с одной проблемой. Аренда жилья через сайт была первым опытом для нас и в итоге он оказался положительным. Мы чувствовали себя как дома. По прибытии нас ждал так называемый welcome pack - не пришлось ехать в магазин за продуктами. Отдельное спасибо хозяевам за гостеприимство и отзывчивость. Мангал - супер :-)

Ехать до пляжа минут 15, большая парковка перед домом, в целом удобно. Для приезжающих - на общественной парковке у пляжа места заканчиваются после 9 утра, особенно в выходные. Детишкам (1,5 и 4 года) вроде тоже понравилось, бассейн манил как магнит. Вода теплая и чистая, очень не плохой вариант провести время после обеда если лень ехать на пляж.

Tropical Fruit Garden: una vacanza a 5 stelle!

  • 5 of 5

Il Tropical Fruit Garden è veramente un posto incantevole: non è la prima volta che andiamo in vacanza a Sarasota e le ultime tre volte abbiamo soggiornato qui. Il complesso è immerso nel verde ma vicino al centro della città e alle spiagge più belle degli Usa. Gli appartamenti sono arredati con gusto, sono molto puliti, curati nel dettaglio e molto confortevoli. Astrid e Andreas, i proprietari, sono persone meravigliose, disponibili e pronte ad aiutarti in qualsiasi situazione. Mi sento veramente di consigliarlo: 5 stelle assolutamente ben meritate!
