About Bryce & Natalia Herron

To introduce ourselves, my wife and I are Canadians from Montreal area. We recently purchased this vacation home to escape our long and cold winters.

We have it mainly set up for ourselves to enjoy, but when not using it, we certainly don't mind lending it out to the right people.

For these reasons alone, we decided to decorate it in a beautiful Cape Cod setting, accentuated with a fresh new modern look to give it that extra panache.

We also made sure that every detail was catered to, starting from the opulent fine linens, to the plush cushioned outdoor seating, to even the best beer cooler money can buy.

For these reasons alone, we have no doubt that you will enjoy it as we do, in the finest comforts you can possibly imagine.

Feel free to text, email or call me for any inquiries regarding reservations. I promise to answer all my emails promptly.

Bryce & Natalia Herron purchased this condo in 2014

Why Bryce & Natalia Herron chose Sarasota

We chose to buy this property for two reasons. First because it is in Sarasota. I've been to many places in Florida and Sarasota is by far the best place to be. What originally drew me here were Siesta Keys pristine white sand beaches made up of volcanic ash. Never in my life did I experience as beautiful of a beach as Siesta Keys. Once you get past the beautiful beaches, only then do you realize just how much more Sarasota has to offer. Live theater, chic boutiques and shops, amazing food, art galleries and anything else you can possibly imagine.

Second was the condition of our condo and how it was being managed? It is a gated community where everything from the grounds, to the pool are kept to the very highest standards. Chris, the General Manager, ensures that everything in the gated complex is in immaculate condition. The condos themselves are quite new. The type of people living there are comprised of retired Canadians and Americans vacationing for the winter, a fun group of young entertainers who perform down the street at the Atolo theatre, and working professionals.

The grounds are comprised of gorgeous lake views, lush gardens, and a world class pool resort. To top it off, it is also completely central to everything in Sarasota. You are steps away from all the restaurants, shopping, entertainment and the downtown district. Location wise, it simply could not get any better.

If you feel that you deserve to spend your limited vacation time in a grandeur relaxed and opulent setting, then our two bedroom chic new condo boasts all the amenities you would expect from a luxury hotel.

These include:

Premium Quality Linen & Duvets,

Upscale Modern Furniture,

Fully equipped Kitchen,

Top-end Appliances,

A Resort style Pool with Spacious Sun Deck,

Luscious Tropical Landscaping, and so much more.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We stayed here in March, 2016 and could not have been more pleased. The condo is cheerfully decorated and everything one could need has been thoughtfully provided. The kitchen was well stocked with cooking utensils which is much appreciated in a vacation home. The condo itself is ideally located with a beautiful lake view, and the condo community is in a location convenient to grocery stores, shopping, and the city of Sarasota. Serenata, the condo community, offers a quiet and relaxing atmosphere. We loved sitting out on the screened-in lanai. The owners are friendly and efficient to deal with. Communications are answered quickly. We have nothing but positive comments and happy memories of our stay here this year.

  • In choosing the bedding, I firmly believe that having a good nights sleep is one of the most important aspects of any vacation.

This was done with the utmost intent of giving you an unsurpassed experience in total comfort and relaxation while spending your nights in complete serenity. The new ceiling fans also add a gentle breeze similar to that of the beach. This should put you at complete ease as soon as you enter the room.

Home away from home.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this condo for two months in 2016. We found it to be a home away from home. It is very comfortable, tastefully furnished and decorated, and extremely well equipped. Grocery shopping was easy, with Publix, Starbucks and CVS all within walking distance and other specialty stores such as Trader Joes, Whole Foods and Fresh Market within easy driving distance. The area is also well serviced by many restaurants and a brand new shopping mall. The local Keys are within easy driving distance with access to many beaches. We had a great stay and would highly recommend it for a short or long term stay. The owners are very helpful and promptly respond to any questions you may have.
