Quite pleasant stay in excellent location

  • 4 of 5

Overall, the apartment was quite comfortable. It was clean, nicely decorated, and well furnished and equipped. Flooring uneven at spots, so if you are older with balance issues, be careful. Communication needs to be improved. VRBO assumes that everyone has a smart phone and access to apps, and if you don't, it is hard to get information before occupancy. The owner isn't too good about responding to phone calls. But the location is excellent, within walking distance of downtown and Main Street. Good restaurants nearby. I enjoyed my stay there.

The perfect place!

  • 5 of 5

A great location, only a short drive to the beach, shopping, restaurants, and all the best Sarasota has to offer. The apartment was clean and fully equipped , spacious and very comfortable. It was a wonderful stay thanks to the host. Matt was available anytime I had a question for him. He was very accommodating, hospitable, and friendly. Thank you Matt for making my stay so pleasant and memorable!

A comfy and convenient place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We completely enjoyed our stay at this property. The apartment is just as shown and it has a comfortable feel. Everything needed is provided. There is also laundry facilities. The owner is attentive and hospitable. He gave us great advice about getting around town and places to go. We loved being walking distance to downtown. So many restaurants! This is also a very comfortable place to have a dog. Our dog enjoyed his daily walks to Gillespie Park. I would definitely recommend this property and hope to return myself.
