About Jeffrey Rudge

My wife and I spent the past few months renovating this gorgeous house and hope you will enjoy its charm as much as we do. The yard and landscaping is beautiful and very relaxing. Our goal is to make you feel comfortable and to unwind while you are away from the hustle and bustle.

I own an high-end concierge/caregiver company: The Royal Treatment, LLC and enjoy providing special services to people who deserve to be pampered.

My wife teaches marine science at Riverview High School (3 blocks away from the house) and started a very unique program called Stars to Starfish and was named Sarasota County Teacher of the Year in 2014!

Jeffrey Rudge purchased this house in 2015

Why Jeffrey Rudge chose Florida

We fell in love with this gem of a property, along with the beautiful landscaping and decided to make it part of our family.

What makes this house unique

Sarasota is often considered the most beautiful city in all of Florida. It is host to the finest cultural attractions on the west coast of Florida including The Van Wezel Performing Arts, The Sarasota Opera House, nationally famous Ringling Museum. Selby Botanical Gardens, Mote Marine and much, much more. Your house will be 2.5 miles from Siesta Key Beach (home of the "white sand") which was recently voted America's #1 beach. It is within minutes of some of the finest restaurants in town. The sunsets are breath taking and the sun rises are awe-inspiring. You will be close to the city of Venice, Longboat Key, Casey Key and some of the finest homes and yachts you have ever seen.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Rafael and his family were the greatest guests! They left the house immaculate and everything was in order. Please come back again!

Newly Renovated Getaway! Near Siesta Key #1 Beach!
average rating of 5.0 based on 8 reviews

great property, perfect location

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent the month of February here, and we couldn't have made a better choice. The home was beautiful and had every convenience we could have possibly wanted - right down to the wine glasses. The location of the property was ideal for beach, shopping, site seeing and dining out. Our vacation was great! Thanks, Jeff, for being the perfect host.

Comfortable, well furnished and great location

  • 5 of 5

The house has just been totally renovated. We enjoyed the screen porch, nice kitchen, comfortable beds and washer dryer. It is in a good location for shopping, movies and just a short drive to the beach. Previous guests have left coolers, beach chairs etc. Jeffrey was great too

Small & Cozy

  • 5 of 5

From the 1st moment I saw this house on Homeaway.com I fell in love. It was small and cozy and just the right size for me and my family. The inside of the home is very beautiful and had everything we needed for our vacation. The owners stopped by to say Hi and they were very nice enough to tell us about a few spots to visit. If in the area again I will definitely try to rent this home again.

Great Stay and Experience

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time trying VRBO and we totally enjoyed our stay and the process was very easy. As first time users the process was a little nerve wrecking as you do not know what you are walking into. The property was centrally located of where we wanted to be and it was exactly how it is described and in great condition, recently renovated. We traveled to Sarasota to celebrate our daughters engagement and Jeff, the owner, had put a bottle of champagne in the refrigerator. He was very welcoming and accommodating keeping in constant contact with me prior to our arrival. It had all the necessary items and utensils. The house is close to Siesta Key and centrally located for shops and restaurants. We highly recommend this property and will use it again. Thank you Jeff!!

Great property- very clean and well maintained. We did not meet Jeff but he was very attentive through messages, emails etc. Our two small dogs really enjoyed the backyard as well. Would stay at this property again!

Wonderful Vacation in Florida

We stayed at a beautiful house in Sarasota, Florida for one month. The house had been recently remodeled and was in excellent condition. Everything we needed was provided from our cooking to recreational needs. The owners were extremely helpful and friendly. We highly recommend this property.
