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.
