Just booked in Sarasota
Cozy, charming apartment in a historic 1920's home. Lots of character and charm. Amazing location. One block from the bay with beautiful sunsets. And just a few miles to the beach and downtown. Clean, comfy and a welcoming host. Great for 1 or up to 4 guests. Please read the full detailed description for more information before booking. Hope to see you soon!
I want to let you know FIRST this apartment in on the second floor (see photo's). You will need to be able to walk up one short flight of stairs in the house to arrive at your apartment. The APT is lovely, quiet, clean, and has your private entrance. Hardwood floors throughout the house. You will have full privacy, with a lock on the door. The apartment is attached to the main house, where I reside with my 17 year old son, Brady and two cats, Lyme and Skitters. You will have full privacy and your own private entrance to your apartment. ***If you are expecting a Ritz Carlton quality home do not book. This is an old original Florida home. And has not had a lot of modern updates. Bathroom needs a little updating. We have NO TV in the apartment. Also for parties of 3 or 4: With a pullout futon for two and a large bed, the space can comfortably sleep 4, but please note that it may be a bit tight for 4 active guests- if you are ok with that.. we are too:)
The neighborhood is lush and very close to a sunset every night if you wish. You are welcome to park your car in my driveway. We are extremely centrally located, very close to downtown, beaches, restaurants and shopping. There is an elementary school across the street from this house.
  • Bien, conforme à la description.

  • Sheila's place was exactly as advertised and perfect for our stay. I would definitely recommend her for anyone looking for a comfortable stay in the Sarasota area. As long as you read the description, reviews, and understand that this is a quaint, older place with lots of character you won't be disappointed! One last note, Sheila was the perfect host and even went out of her way to help us with whatever we needed!

  • Wir hatten eine sehr schoene Zeit in diesem AirBnB. Die Zimmer waren sehr geraeumig, die Kueche wunderbar ausgestatt und die Sofaecke(n) super gemuetlich. Wir wuerden jederzeit wieder hier wohnen wollen, wenn wir nach Miami reisen!

    Andreas2017-01-04T00:00:00Z
  • This is a great spot. Well equipped, central, and decorated wonderfully. We felt completely at home and we're very impressed. Our only regret is that we didn't stay longer.

    Chuck2017-04-05T00:00:00Z
  • We enjoyed staying at Sheila's Home. The Apartment was very spacious, well equipped, neatly decorated and clean. Sheila is a Great Host. We will surely come back.

  • Sheila's place was very comfortable and clean

    Michael2017-03-19T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely, cozy apartment and just minutes away from Libo Beach and Siesta key. Sheila was a wonderful host she accommodated all our needs. Absolutely recommend it.

    Arlette2017-06-30T00:00:00Z
  • Great value for Sarasota. The location is central so you can easily drive to other areas of Sarasota / beaches. The apartment itself is adorable. Clean and charming with plenty of room for two people. Shelia was a great host -- she even had Florida orange juice waiting in the fridge for us.

  • This location was adorable. It's really just around the corner from the beach and even a mini downtown-type area that at the time was hosting "the world's greatest art show" in the middle of the square, there are plenty of restaurants and shops to enjoy as well. You can drive easily to the Ringling Museum, some of the famous Amish restaurants and even Siesta key. We didn't meet anyone upon our arrival, but the directions and key where available and all information was clearly explained, that we didn't really need any help. The outdoor seating area is beautiful and there was beach gear that could be used on the side of the building. It started raining the day that we got there so we didn't get to enjoy those amenities but the property itself is quaint, cozy, clean & in the best location. I'd love to come back with a group of friends and rent out a block of the rooms. It'd be a great place to be able to do that. Book it!

    Rani2014-11-09T00:00:00Z
  • Check in process was relatively easy. The room was clean and the neighborhood was quiet. Not too far from the beach and near many small shops and nice restaurants. This is a perfect location if you're looking to get away for a weekend!

    Cindy2015-11-28T00:00:00Z
  • The room was small, but had everything you would need. Comfortable bed, fridge, microwave, TV. We had no problems there. They were doing some renovations to make the property nicer with more features. I would recommend this place again if you don't mind a 5 minute walk to the beach.

    Robert2015-07-25T00:00:00Z
  • Because a missunderstanding we had a wonderful big room for our first night. After clearing that error we changed in a very small room. For one night it was okay. The great beach is really a few steps away from the very quiet enviroment. Also a very special mall around a circle is just a few steps away. A good place for a few special days.

    Bruno2014-07-10T00:00:00Z
  • This was a great getaway for my friend and I! So close to the beach, and the available bikes were definitley a bonus, along with fridge and microwave in the room. And the staff was great. If you're looking for an affordable getaway on the Suncoast, definitely give them a try!

    Shelby2015-04-29T00:00:00Z
  • My wife and me, we had a real nice days, I request an extra day and Dan solve it in less than an hour. Amazing attention and care. Beautiful vacations on Lido Beach.

    Victor2018-04-12T00:00:00Z
  • We had an awesome experience A++

    Jessica2018-06-21T00:00:00Z
  • Great little location hidden away in a lovely neighborhood just a short walk from the beautiful Lido Key Beach and St. Armand's Circle. Basic beach equipment provided and appreciated. Public pool and vending also close by. Accommodations are clean and functional. A good place to rest your head after a long day playing at the beach or an evening enjoying the shops and restaurants of St. Armand's Circle. Thank you for the binder packed full of useful information with "The Bests of" surrounding area. We plan to return!

    Solina2018-01-19T00:00:00Z
  • Elena is a wonderful host. She is very friendly and always available to have a quick chat. She is very thoughtful in providing everything you need for a day out in the beach. We made use of the extra beach towels, beach umbrella and a couple of bat and ball to play. The garden is very pretty and has a lot of chairs to sit and relax. The house is very close to the beach. She also suggested to visit the less crowded Lido beach and it turned out to be really pretty. Hope to visit her place again in the future.

    Anushree2018-03-20T00:00:00Z
  • The atmosphere is relaxing and serene. Neighborhood is great and the house is adorable. Lots of little personal touches to make your stay more special. Wonderful treatment for our little fur babies. Elena and Judd are wonderful hosts!

    Victor2018-02-18T00:00:00Z
  • Elena was a great host! The casita was clean and had everything needed for a comfortable stay!

    Robin2018-04-29T00:00:00Z
  • Perfect location! The space is in a very quiet neighborhood but it's close enough to downtown and the beaches that it's not a hassle to drive. Elena was very kind and gave us recommendations and insights got what to do around Sarasota. And if you don't want to go anywhere so has a beautiful garden where you go sit and just enjoy nature.

    Peter2018-03-16T00:00:00Z
  • So close to everything. It was also so romantic a plus was the jacuzzi tub and nice TV channels plus HBO AND STARZ. We loved our stay.

    Holly2018-08-29T00:00:00Z
  • Don't let the lack of reviews fool you, Karen has been doing this for quite a while, just not on Air BnB. This is a guest house, not just a room, it comes with your own entrance, washer, and full kitchen. This is a place you could comfortably live in for weeks. Karen can really help you get around town or leave you alone if that is what is needed. It's a beautiful place and you wouldn't even know you were on the property.

    Tracy2015-06-27T00:00:00Z
  • Karen’s place is very comfortable and tastefully decorated. My husband and I stayed there for a week, and felt at home. The bathroom and kitchen were great, the bed was comfortable, and we even watched Netflix on the big screen at the evenings. Karen stayed in touch and was really friendly and attentive to our needs. She gave us great suggestions on the good restaurants in the area where we could celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary. Thanks Karen for your hospitality. We really enjoyed our stay!

    Lana2018-01-02T00:00:00Z
  • The space was a wonderful get away, perfect for 1-2 people. Karen met and surpassed our expectations.

    The best location in Sarasota. 1 block to Lido Beach, one of the top 25 beaches in the U.S. according to Tripadvisor, and 3 blocks to St. Armands with over 100 shops and restaurants. In the middle of all the hot spots, yet in a quiet neighborhood. We have bikes available for $5 per day.
  • PROS: The neighborhood was quiet and peaceful. I was never worried about safety despite being the only one staying in the complex (with my family). In fact, that was the best part - we had the pool all to ourselves and didn't have to worry about being rude to others staying nearby (we have a baby that doesn't yet sleep through the night...). The pool was not huge but was clean and refreshing after a day at the beach. The laundry facilities were good, although just an FYI you do need to pay in quarters to use both the washer and dryer. The room was bright and the decorations were as pictured and I thought beachy and fun. The host was able to provide a pack-n-play for our baby and was responsive to our inquiries. There was another location where one could find additional things such as towels. I didn't look too closely at this and didn't have a chance to return while staying there so I'm not sure what else may have been available. If you like to kayak there is a park within view that has a place to put a kayak in (South Lido Nature Park I believe) and you could definitely get there within walking distance. The location is also a very short drive from great shopping and dining as well as to the beach. Beach chairs were provided in the room, which we appreciated. CONS: While the room was as pictured in many ways, the thing that we found to be a negative was that there was very little provided by the host that would have made the stay more enjoyable. Ex: laundry detergent (I have stayed at other locations that have this on hand even when you have to pay for the washer/dryer), shampoo and other bath items (two small facial soaps were provided, along with hand soap in the bathroom). Additionally, the grill starter didn't work and the matches were not usable so we were unable to utilize the grill. The kitchen is small but functional, however the knives were broken and the pans were too old/crusty and I did not want to use them. Plus the only pot holder was burned through. We chose this location so that we could make many meals at home and not eat out lunch and dinner since we have a baby. However, the issues we encountered left only the range as an option. I found that the floor was not swept when we arrived, and the couch and sheets were stained in places. Finally, the walk to the beach was longer than we had expected and so we drove to the beach each day. For us this wasn't much of an issue as the drive was very short but at the same time may be a con for others. Overall we enjoyed Lido Beach and the location, for a good price, but would probably spend more to get more amenities in the future.

    Rhiannon2014-09-09T00:00:00Z
  • Great location for anyone looking to spend time at the beach.

    Drew2016-11-26T00:00:00Z
  • The location was good - near the beach and a mile from Armand Circle with restaurants and shops. Check in was confusing as I did not note that check in was not at the listings location but another property. Dan responded promptly by texts to my inquiries.

    Monica2015-11-10T00:00:00Z
  • Had a really great time at this location. Place is close to the beach and restaurants and the process for checking in/out was effortless. Really recommend this spot!

    Peter2016-05-09T00:00:00Z
  • Nice little beach bungalow about a five minute walk from the beach. Not luxurious but clean, functional, and had a lot of character. We had a nice time.

    Grant2015-04-12T00:00:00Z
  • Dan's place is not for a romantic getaway. While the apartment was very close to the beach and within walking distance of great shopping venues, the overall ambiance was significantly lacking in charm. The pool was not the Oasis as seen in the photos, and the couches and chairs in the apartment were dirty and stained. This is a perfect place for people who will be spending almost all of their time out of the apartment.

    Darko2016-12-21T00:00:00Z
  • At one time this was a lovely spot with a great location. With neglect and no attention to cleanliness we will not return.

    Tom2017-04-01T00:00:00Z
  • Dan's place was a fantastic little studio in a great location. The beach is right down the street and is simply perfect. There's even a little patio where we enjoyed our morning coffee every day. The place is within walking distance to the Ritz tiki bar, which is right on the beach, and also the main square that had tons of shops and some nice restaurants. I would definitely stay here again and recommend to friends and family!

  • Dior was very responsive throughout the booking process and arranged for a key to be left after hours for me when my flight got delayed. She made sure to check in the next morning to make sure everything was up to my standards and provided restaurant recommendations too, she was incredibly welcoming and made the experience enjoyable. The unit was very clean, modern and aesthetically pleasing. We enjoyed the short walk to the beach from the front door daily. There is a local bar nearby that played loud music but it was usually done by 10 p.m. each night. The kitchen was well equipped to make meals and the convenient laundry room down the hall made life very convenient with a 2 year old.

  • Nice private beach access. Generally quite area but yet has all the amenities. Nicely updated space.

    Cameron2017-05-27T00:00:00Z
  • The place was a great place to stay and is exactly as Dior described. We would definitely stay here again.

    Michael2017-09-25T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful beach!! Clean, comfortable, calming condo very close to the powdery white sand of crescent beach. Nice big bed, great pillows, hooked up kitchen, we loved relaxing here for a few days. Easy check in, parking right out front. Don't hesitate to book this place, thanks a lot Dior, we'll be back! Tip for future guests: grab a cheap snorkle and mask upon arrival and head down the beach a bit to the point of rocks (can't miss it)-- AWESOME snorkeling right off the beach, tons of beautiful fish, conchs, shells, had a great time snorkeling in the crystal clear gulf.

    Steve2016-05-19T00:00:00Z
  • Perfect stay. The beach on Siesta Key is BEAUTIFUL. The unit is exactly as it appears in the pictures. Clean, modern, with full amenities. Check in and check out was very simple. There is a small office in the complex and they are very helpful. Beach access is easy. There is a nice pool on the property. The covered area on the beach with use of beach chairs was a nice perk. There is a small grocery and restaurants conveniently located directly across the street. The only misleading point is the picture shows the unit as third from the beach. It is actually second from the road, but the complex is small and it is a very short walk to the beach so it really did not matter. We would definitely return to this wonderful beachfront getaway on Siesta Key.

    Betsy2014-10-10T00:00:00Z
  • Dior is a very responsive and helpful host. This place is excatly as described, modern, clean, 45 seconds to the beach. The Siesta beach is fabulous. We had a wonderful four-day Christmas vacation there.

    Lu2015-12-23T00:00:00Z
  • Dior is an excellent host. Communicated throughout the whole process. Dior's place is amazing. The shower feels so good after a day at the beach. It's an open concept, super modern and close to the beach. We took our 1 year old and he had no problem walking from her place all the way to the ocean. Dior's recommendations were on point. Captain Curt's is across the street and has the best Clam Chowder. It's away from the Village but close enough to drive down in the afternoon. Perfect spot for a relaxing beach getaway! Would definitely go back and stay at Dior's place again.

    Maribel2014-08-19T00:00:00Z
  • My husband and I enjoyed our beach getaway at Dior's place. The unit is very modern and nicely decorated on the inside. We loved having a private access to Siesta Key beach. It was much less crowded than the public access in Siesta Key, and felt very family-friendly. While the unit is not beach front, it is only steps to the #1 beach in the U.S. There are great restaurants (the Toasted Mango is right across the street), a kayak rental facility across the street (we rented our beach chairs from there), and small grocery stores that provide all of your needs when you are at the beach. The unit also has a king-size bed that was very comfortable, and two flat screen TVs with tons of channels. This is a great place to stay if you want a beach getaway! The only thing I would mention is that we thought we were going to stay here for about $209 a night (the price listed by airbnb), but after the tax, cleaning fees, and other additional fees, it was closer to $300 a night. We also agreed to do late checkout at 4pm at the end of our weekend to maximize our stay, but it was $100 more, making our stay closer to $360 a night. While we loved our stay, I wanted to mention that it does not come cheap. Perhaps that is standard for airbnb and we are somewhat new to this world! Overall, we loved our trip, and loved this lovely ocean-side space!

    Michelene2016-04-03T00:00:00Z
  • My girlfriend and I really enjoyed our stay in Sarasota. We kept ourselves busy with all the attractions and beaches nearby. The apartment provided the right amount of space for the two of us with everything we needed to make our stay perfect. From the little things like kitchen utensils and offering beach chairs and a cooler, the apt. offers much more value then an expensive hotel. Clean, comfortable, and inexpensive. Allowed us to enjoy more of Sarasota than we would have with an expensive hotel room. Would definitely rent again.

    Robert2015-08-22T00:00:00Z
  • We had an amazing stay at Betsy's place. It was a clean little apartment perfect for any getaway! We could borrow beach chairs and their cooler... It's about 20 minutes to Lido Beach, 25 maybe to Siesta Key and closed to many stores and attractions.

  • Listing was accurate, amazing location, plenty of parking, easy check-in. This is the perfect spot for anyone staying in Sarasota looking to adventure out during the day and have somewhere to rest their head at night. Lido Key is a gem.

    Case2016-11-13T00:00:00Z
  • a clean and unexpensive place, perfect to take a rest in our trip around Florida. close to a beautiful part of beach, calm and quiet. comfortable way of check in. highly recommended!

    Larysa2016-08-15T00:00:00Z
  • Good, no frills, low cost option for Lido Key. Older feel but clean. Close to the beach and to shops/restaurants. Check in was a little different than first communicated, but Dan resolved the problem within 15'.

    Amy2017-05-08T00:00:00Z
  • A great stay, I highly recommend room 2a for anyone that doesn't mind a lovely, clean small room (or only plans to sleep there), wants to stay near the beach and the shops and not pay a ridiculous amount! We stayed in the first floor unit 2a for 1 night in October. The building itself is charming Florida Beach style, easy to find with ample parking. We had no communication with Dan other than the AirBnB approval, so we just showed up at the designated check in time. The housekeeping staff Kay was there and the room was ready, with our keys waiting on the table inside. There are French doors to enter, and they open right onto the main entrance area but you do have light blocking curtains so no one can see in. Some sheers underneath them would have been great so that you could have the option of semi-privacy while also letting some light in during the day. Room 2a is the size of a small European hotel room, with charming beach decor, a tall, thin dresser for some clothes, a sweet table for two at the foot of the bed, and a cute bathroom with shower/ bath, sink and toilet. The bathroom was clean, with cabinet space for toiletries. They have maximized the room space by turning the AC closet into a micro kitchen with microwave, small fridge, and some dishes, glasses and cutlery. It was great to have those there, and you can close the door to the closet if you don't like seeing the AC unit. The queen-size bed takes up most of the room, and with all white bedding it was super clean ( trust us, we looked!) As with other guests we couldn't figure out the AC, the display read 73 degrees while we were there, and it was initially quite chilly in the room. I attempted to turn the temperature up and the unit off, and while the display still read 73 degrees all night, it definitely got much warmer in the room. It may just be that the display is broken. There is a huge assortment of beach chairs, umbrellas and other beach gear at the side of the building, and we loved the picnic/ BBQ area under the trees with the fairy lights. We actually ended up having a wonderful wine and cheese party there and never even got into town! The night we stayed there the complex was full, but we were surprised that we didn't hear a sound from anyone. Neither when we were in the room nor when we were outside. A large group of young ladies were having a girl's weekend there, but you wouldn't have known it. Lido beach is just a 5 minute walk away. It was very busy on a Sunday at the parking lot area where we entered, but it is a long beach and so you don't have to walk far before it thins out. Will definitely return any time...

    Lefteris2016-10-10T00:00:00Z
  • Very small rooms. Fridge etc in a closet with hot water heater. No grab bars etc for tub.

    Brenda2017-03-17T00:00:00Z
  • The place was small but very perfect for a one night stay. All we needed was a place to sleep and shower in between the beach and dinner. Very close to St. Armand's and the beach. The walls are super thin so it's very easy to hear your neighbors even if they are not talking incredibly loud. The room was not cooling down at first but we opened the vent all the way and that helped. Liked that there was a TV in the room.

    Allie2016-08-16T00:00:00Z

    Bright bungalow located in historic Gillespie Park near downtown Sarasota. Right across the street from a public park with walking paths, tennis courts, basketball court, a butterfly garden and a playground. Near several restaurants, markets and stores. The house is a classic open air Florida Bungalow with original wood floors, wide front porch and relaxing back yard that keeps cool under a giant oak tree. Location makes it easy to get to Lido Key, Siesta Key and downtown Sarasota.
    In addition to the house, there is a front porch facing the park and a beautiful backyard shaded by giant oaks.
    Gillespie Park honors John Hamilton Gillespie, first mayor of Sarasota. The Stottish-born aristocrat arrived in 1886 as agent for his father, Sir John Hamilton Gillespie of Edinburgh, a principal in Florida Mortgage and Investment Co., which filed the Town of Sarasota plat in 1886. This land was part of the town's experimental farm. Gillespie laid out a golf course in 1886. He worked to fund dredging of a Sarasota Bay channel in 1888, and built a hotel on Main Street. When Sarasota was incorporated in 1902, Gillespie was elected Mayor. He died in 1923 and was buried in the town's Rosemary Cemetery. Gillespie Park Subdivision was platted in 1917 adjacent to this area. In 1924 Sarasota Developed Own Burns sold the parcel to the city for a park. During the Florida land boom, a $75,000 bond issue funded development of lawn bowling, tennis courts and a playground which in 1925, won a national beautification award. The park supported a natural history museum, Brumby Lake, a lakeside walkway, and footbridge. In 1977, a Gallery of Patriots installed in the park's northeast corner featured such Western Hemisphere leaders as Abraham Lincoln, Jose Marti, Simon Bolivar and Ingacio Agramonte.
  • Worth every penny.

    Eric2018-06-07T00:00:00Z
  • It's a small house that feels like it's entirely yours during your stay. You can almost imagine living there, regularly enjoying the grill in the backyard or the hammock on the front porch, sitting at the high top kitchen table, sipping your tea. It was so peaceful and yet it's so close to everything! You never have to go far to get somewhere and at the same time you never have far to go to get back. I enjoyed my stay!

    Eli2018-06-29T00:00:00Z

  • A basket of snacks, a bottle of wine, and food in the refrigerator on our arrival made us feel very welcome. Location is unique: in the city, 15 minutes from downtown, yet private and surrounded by vegetation. No formal landscaping, and not the latest in fine furniture, but well-equipped and comfortable. Bridget was responsive and helpful. Tho close to airport and rails, cottage was remarkably quiet. It felt like home for three weeks. Highly recommend. Skylight over bed (and throughout) added attraction.

    Lindi2016-01-10T00:00:00Z
  • We very much enjoyed our stay. The home was very clean and she left some nice things in a basket for us to eat and even had things for breakfast in the refrigerator which we thought was so thoughtful and sweet. We rode our bikes to downtown Sarasota and enjoyed the Saturday market they have on the Main Street. Away from the hustle and bustle but fairly convenient to everything.

  • Thought the place was great! Very cozy, with a lot of nice touches - snacks, a dozen eggs, bagels, coffee, a bottle of champagne, etc. It was clean, and had a nice peppermint/chocolate aroma to it, which I appreciated after a stay at a hotel in Clearwater. Bridget was quick to respond to a few questions. She recommended a restaurant downtown that we checked out and loved. The cottage is convenient to many attractions, like the top rated beach in the country, Siesta Key Beach. I would definitely consider staying there again!

    You're lovely beach suite will be just a short drive to everything in town! It's a very central location and it will take you about 15 minutes or less to get anywhere. Mall? 2 minutes. Downtown? 7 minutes. 1-75? 10 minutes. Beach? 10 minutes/ Grocery? 2-7 minutes. Awesome location in a beach themed room with private access. It's like a little hotel suite fully equipped with a microwave, mini fridge/freezer, and coffee pot with a flexible check in time with keypad entry!!!
    Please remember you are staying in someones home, not a hotel :) If you have any special accommodation requests please feel free to contact us.

    Great for those on-the-go or planning to stay in bed and read; this small studio, has cuteness, w/amenities, full-size poster bed, coffee maker/small refrigerator/small microwave, closet with hangers and small bureau, tiled bathroom, books, hardwood floors, fan and ductless air/heat. It is petite and best for one person but two if they love to snuggle. In historic area with shopping/dining/dancing, theaters, comedy club, markets, opera, free local transportation, Bayfront marina, tiki bar+more!
    The unit is decorated beautifully with great attention to detail. It is a cozy studio apartment that is perfect for getting a nights rest or staying in to read a book. It is clean and feels like home with amenities needed to stay a night or week or month. The location is located in the southern area of downtown, safe and secure, nestled between high-end historic neighborhoods Laurel Park, Palm Avenue and Hudson Bayou. Great restaurants, shopping, spas, theaters, convenience market all in neighborhood and just blocks away from Bayfront Marina, boating, parks, performance theaters, comedy club, Main Street and other amenities such as transportation, government and super markets. The building has 8 vacation rentals and every unit is a different size and uniquely different. Enjoy your stay in the studio.
    This is the nicest and safest mixed-use neighborhood in the city, historic buildings, south of Main Street and nestled between historic high-end residential Palm Avenue and Laurel Park, and close to the Bayfront Marina & Park, tiki bar, boat, jet ski and paddle board rentals. We are centrally located between Siesta Key and Lido Beaches. There are a plethora of daytime amenities and evening activities within walking distance. Many great restaurants; I would recommend the ones in Burns Square such as Fresh Start (bfast/lunch), The Fountain (coffee,lunch/dinner) and Burns Court Cafe (bfast/lunch/dinner) and Owen's Fish Camp (dinner). Then there are other favorites Boca, State Street Eatery, Indigenous, Cafe Epicure, Selva, Blue Rooster - to name a few downtown. Shopping, fashion, art galleries, and spas are super close by as well as Whole Foods and Publix supermarkets. Saturday mornings there is a wonderful Farmer's Market on Lemon Avenue (three blocks to the north). There is an independent movie theater across the street called the Burns Court Cinema; Hollywood 20 theater is just 6 blocks away. Sarasota Opera, Sarasota Orchestra, Sarasota Ballet, McCurdy's Comedy Club and several other performance theaters - Van Wezel, Florida Studio Theater, Improve Theater, West Coast Black Theater, and Urbanite Theater - to name a few, are in close walking distance. There is a free IRide system downtown that is just a phone call or hail ride away. They run from 11AM - 11PM and will pick you up and drop you off anyplace in the downtown core. There is a county wide bus system SCAT and the terminal is only 4 blocks away on Lemon Avenue. In addition, Uber and Lyft are very active in the area. There is also a bike rental just a few doors south on S. Orange Avenue. A visitor welcome center is close by at the Chamber of Commerce on Fruiteville Road, close by. They have schedules of the area businesses, shows, attractions, and events. Parking is fairly easy. There is 24/7 FREE parking on Oak Street that passes to the east and west in front of the building. There is free overnight parking in the Women's Exchange parking lot across the street on the Orange Avenue side of the building - they are closed 4PM - 9AM. There is free parking at the Eye Doctor office at the corner of Orange & Oak Street Friday - Sunday. On-street around the building and downtown is free overnight and free for 3 hours during the day from 9AM-6PM and there are lots of public parking lots. Sarasota is a beautiful area with lots of culture and great things to do and see. We know you will enjoy your stay and please let me know if you have any other questions. See you soon!
  • Perfect location to downtown Sarasota. Cute place.

  • Thank you for your Appartment. It was very clean and in a very nice area. I appreciate how you went out of your way to accommodate me.

    Rodrigo2017-10-02T00:00:00Z
  • Denise is so welcoming, and very responsive to any questions I had. The Airbnb is in a perfect location in downtown Sarasota, and only a few blocks from Owen’s Fish Camp (very cool atmosphere, and excellent food!), Botanical Gardens, and a short iRide (free Sarasota transportation service) to Publix. Great place!

    Rachel2018-04-07T00:00:00Z
  • Our second stay with Denise was just as fabulous as the first. Our new favorite staycation!

    Kendall2017-01-22T00:00:00Z
  • Wonderful little retreat for two. We prefer character and location and this was perfect. Unit 4 is small but we don't stay in our room. Location is amazing; Walked everywhere. Dining suggestions: Fresh Start for breakfast, Owen's Fish Camp for music and dinner outside in the back, and Selva downtown.

    Diana2017-03-12T00:00:00Z
  • Denise is a wonderful host. She was very flexible with our check-in time and went the extra mile to ensure a comfortable stay. She even had cookies in the fridge for us! The apartment is in a great location - you can walk to all of the great downtown restaurants and shops! Street parking was easy for us. We would definitely stay with Denise again when we are in Sarasota!

    Christy2017-01-02T00:00:00Z
  • Everything was absolutely perfect! First off, it's in a great location in Sarasota-- within walking distance to plenty of shops, restaurants, and the Saturday market. Even though it's downtown, we had no problem with parking. The room was clean and quiet. It had everything we needed for our short stay. Denise was very accommodating and we would surely stay there again!

    Jamie2016-08-29T00:00:00Z
  • Denise was a wonderful host - quick to respond and flexible. We requested beach towels and she offered up some beach chairs too. She respected our privacy but was also very eager to help whenever we needed anything. The location of the property was good - less than 10 minutes walk from Main Street with most of the restaurants. The apartment is quite small but that is as advertised. Would stay again!

    Victoria2015-10-26T00:00:00Z
  • My girlfriends (there were a total of 5 of us) enjoyed our stay at the Lido Islander. I don’t think you can go wrong with any of the beaches in Sarasota, FL where the Lido Islander is located. It was super convenient to Lido beach and St. Armand’s Circle. If you do not bring a car (like us) you can find places to eat and shop within walking distance. If you’re feeling ambitious like one of my girlfriends and I were you can walk the hour to downtown. On Saturday, we enjoyed the downtown area and Farmer’s Market. I felt very safe in the walking in neighborhood where the Lido Islander was located. I also appreciated Lido Islander offers you free Wi-Fi. The Lido Islander requests that you keep the air condition temperature within a specific range which is fine except we were unable to find extra blankets to keep us warm (so if you tend to run cold at night bring extra blankets or ask the host to provide some extra blankets ahead of time). I also wanted to mention there was plenty of room for 5 single women at Lido Islander. However the sofa sleeper, I was staying on broke the last night I was there. I was unsure who I was suppose to contact about this issue. I mentioned it to a women who was pulling sheets in the other suites the morning I left. Airbnb (and the Lido Islander) is not like a hotel and you can’t call a front desk (in the middle of the night) when something goes wrong. My other suggestion (and it is very minor) if you’re staying at the Lido Islander (and you walking around in bare feet) don’t expect to keep your feet clean. Lido Islander is not dirty (but with the number of people who go to the suite to and from the beach the title floors tends to collect sand and dirt). The majority of us just kept our flip flops on. It was not a problem after we realized the sand/dirt had tracked into the suite. Overall, great experience and a great value if your vacationing in the area.

    Liz2013-07-23T00:00:00Z
  • Perfect location one block from the beach. Spacious and clean. Value for sure!

    Shelby2016-09-07T00:00:00Z
  • Dan's communication was very timely up until we were running late and unable to check in at the time we thought. We never heard anything from him and in the past had lost a place because of a late arrival. The room was available; but, anxiety was created due to no communication from him over our late arrival. Additionally we requested the same room we had stayed in at a previous trip and that request wasn't acknowledged or accommodated. The room we stayed in was not the same as our previous room. The convenience to the beaches is amazing; but, part of our unhappiness is no fault of Dan's as the weather was just horrible while we were there and we were unable to enjoy the beach.

    Jeff2018-05-14T00:00:00Z
  • The Lido was great. It was just a few blocks from many shops and attractions. We enjoyed our stay!

    John2015-07-28T00:00:00Z
  • Had a great stay at the islander! Room was big, cozy, and comfortable. Cannot beat the location either. Just as advertised and will be coming back!

    Mike2014-09-14T00:00:00Z
  • We loved Lido Key and the location of the guest house! Our one room apartment was spacious enough for a family and perfect for us two. It had everything we needed and was clean and had nice furnishings. Easy walk to the beach and to shopping, and a short drive to downtown Saratoga.

    Tina2017-03-20T00:00:00Z
  • The check in was fast and easy and apartment was ready upon arrival. The location is in a residential area with a nice patio area to have coffee or a glass of wine. There where additional towels and supplies available if needed which I thought was very convenient. The apartment could use some upgrades and additional kitchen items. Overall a nice stay!

    We are in the perfect location!! Walk everywhere! Enjoy passersby on bikes, walking and exercising!
  • The location was perfect. Having the bikes was a huge plus as we used them everyday. Having the beach right across the street was awesome. Betsy was very nice. Great spot. I'd stay here again for sure.

    Pat2015-04-28T00:00:00Z
  • The place is very convenient to the beach and Siesta Key Village. It was very clean and comfortable. My only disappointment is that I didn't get a refund for the one night I was scheduled following the recent hurricane.

    Alexandra2016-09-07T00:00:00Z
  • This is a very cute and cozy cottage within walking distance from the beach and Siesta Key Village (where all of the shops and restaurants are). Everything was exactly as described and me and my husband were extremely satisfied. The house and town are dog friendly but the beach is not but Betsy was helpful by suggesting a dog friendly beach before our arrival (which we loved by the way!!). If we ever vacation in Siesta Key again we will definitely reserve this house.

    Ashley2016-08-30T00:00:00Z
  • Cute small cottage very close to Siesta Key Village and the beach. Very very very small shower. A/C units in the unit do not keep the unit cool....gets better at night. Washer and dryer are in the property next door under the carport....the management company did not know this and offered their onsite w/d at the management company. Bikes are almost 1 mile away and can only be checked out in 3 hour increments. Great location, but not a good value for the $$.

    Karen2018-04-23T00:00:00Z
  • Our host was welcoming and in that she was easy to reach by phone or email. We loved the location as it was extremely close to the beach.

    Marjorie2015-01-01T00:00:00Z

    Elaine2015-12-01T00:00:00Z

  • Fantastic location and place! Hospitality was amazing and Chad was fantastic! You can walk anywhere on siesta key and Chad gave some great recommendations! Highly recommend!

    Michael2018-06-21T00:00:00Z

    Paul2018-06-04T00:00:00Z
  • This space is perfect for a couples getaway! Super cozy space. The hot tub is great at night and great WiFi connection. We loved the five minute walk to the village (because parking was insane) and there’s really great food. Beach isn’t too much farther maybe an extra five minutes. The only thing is that (to me and my boyfriend) the bed was fairly uncomfortable. Too firm. But some people prefer that and the rest of the space made up for it! Will definitely return if we ever take another trip to siesta key.

    Brigitte2018-07-21T00:00:00Z
  • Awesome location! Small space but we barely spent time there, it’s just what you need! Walked to everything.. gorgeous beaches and amazing food! Chad was very responsive we are going to come back... however, next time we come back it won’t be during love bug season LOL!

    Kelly2018-05-11T00:00:00Z
  • Unfortunately we do not stay at this location the cleaning service did not do their job and we ended up staying at a hotel. The host was very quick to refund our money and was apologetic for the issue and inconvenience.

    Come stay in this cozy, beach life Bungalow just a few minutes away from #1 Ranked Siesta Key Beach. This cottage is fully furnished and has everything you need to enjoy your vacation. Centrally located, close to downtown, restaurants, & shopping!
    Within this cute little home there are two bedrooms and one bathroom located off the Master Bedroom. The Master has a king size bed with fresh linens that will comfortably fit two people and a walk in closet with plenty of room for luggage. The bathroom is accessed through the Master and has a stand up shower with towels and soaps provided. The 2nd bedroom has a twin size bed with fresh linens and its own small closet. In the living room there are couches to relax on, and a breakfast table and chairs. The kitchen has a brand new refrigerator and stove to cook on. The kitchen comes stocked with pots and pans, cutlery, silverware, and dishes. There is a Bialetti coffee maker provided that makes some delicious raise-your-heart-rate espresso, and a conventional drip coffee maker. There's even a toaster and a microwave. As the listing states, there is a TV with an HDMI cord provided and a Chromecast, but no cable TV. Feel free to stream your Netflix or other video content and plug it right into the TV. We find that our guests don't watch too much TV anyway, after all, you're in paradise! Air Conditioning is provided by a big wall AC unit in the living room. It does it's job on keeping the place cool, but we also have ceiling fans if you want a little extra air flow.
    This bungalow is located in a very nice, safe, and quiet neighborhood. It is very close to Downtown, where you can enjoy plenty of great dining and nightlife. Take a walk down to the bayside and enjoy the views of Sarasota Bay and Marina Jacks Harbor where you can enjoy live music and watch the sunset across the bay. Or take a stroll south to Hillview Street with its fun shops, restaurants, and bars. But save the best for last: the white sands of Siesta Key Beach. Siesta Key Beach is consistently ranked a top 10 Beach in the World and was just ranked #1 Beach in the US on TripAdvisor for 2015. Getting to the beach is easy, just hop in your car for a quick drive to the Siesta Key North Bridge, and follow the signs that say BEACH!
  • David's cute cottage is nestled in the middle of most attractions in Sarasota and very close to Siesta keys and Lido beach which made traveling very convenient. The residential area is very safe and quiet and surrounded by tropical plants. The cottage was immaculately clean and refreshing. With its charming nautical beach theme, one can't help but feel like you were situated on the edge of the shore. The layout provides one large room and a smaller room fit for a single guest. We utilized the kitchen often which included cooking and dish supplies. The living room had 2 cute couches with lots of natural light flooding into the space. My husband and I spent our first year wedding anniversary in this beautiful place and it's just our style, laid back and fun. We couldn't be more impressed with our first Airbnb experience! We enjoyed the minimal amenities that David kindly provided. We definitely recommend this adorable cottage. What made it even sweeter was how friendly and accommodating David was during our stay. He would occasionally ask us if we needed anything during our stay and made sure that we were comfortable. This small piece of paradise is our home away from home. We will definitely be back again someday.

    Janelle2016-07-14T00:00:00Z

    Freddie2018-04-27T00:00:00Z
  • David was very welcoming. Our flight arrived late and we were an hour late to check in David was most accommodating. The space is very clean. The interior is clean and could easily be described as functional minimalist. There is good Wifi access and a TV but you need to bring an HDMI cable to attach to your laptop if able or your Roku Box or Apple TV box to have TV access. We brought our own Beats capsule speaker along which provided amplified sound. The kitchen is quite clean and a nice size, with a stove, full sized refrigerator, dishes, cutlery and some pans and a small pot for cooking. The bathroom is clean and neat, however quite small and calls for some interesting navigation. Overall the stay was pleasant.

    Florence2016-06-02T00:00:00Z
  • Our stay at the cottage was great, conveniently located in a nice and quiet neighborhood, close to downtown, and many shops and restaurants. Beaches (Lido, siesta) are only at a short drive. The cottage is very clean, well equipped and is exactly as described in the listing. You can park your car just beside the cottage. David is a friendly host and will make sure you have everything you need during your stay, and will also give you many tips about good restaurants and things to do. I recommend this place !

    My cozy cottage provides a truly relaxing and rejuvenating experience. My home offers a gorgeous front porch for morning coffee, a quaint sun room for afternoon reading, and a private bed and bath with a walk in shower. This is a shared cottage but you will never even know I am there. You will have your own private entrance and parking spot on your side of the cottage. I am 1 mile from golf course. 15 minute drive to Lido beach and the famous St Armand's Circle and 8 minutes to downtown.
    The space has its own private entrance into the sunroom. There is a mini fridge, microwave, and a keurig located in the sunroom. An attached bedroom and full bathroom with a walk in shower. I live on the other side of the cottage. You have your own private space. I am around but only if needed otherwise I am very discreet.
    I am about a 15 minute drive to Lido Beach and St Armand’s Circle. About 8 minutes from downtown. About 20 minutes to Siesta Key
  • We appreciated the private entrance and extra sunroom. Steven & Sarah were great hosts. They provided what we needed without interrupting our privacy. It was exactly what we needed for a quick visit to the beach in Sarasota area.

    Tami2017-07-04T00:00:00Z
  • My boyfriend and I truly enjoyed our stay at Steve & Sara's Cottage. It was our first airbnb experience and we were truly spoiled. The amount of details that they put into making the room perfect is incredibly. We truly felt like we had a home away from home. Steve & Sara were always able to be reached if we needed them but also out of sight when we didn't. I would recommend this cottage to anyone.

    Kasondra2017-04-04T00:00:00Z

  • This place was so cute and nice! Very clean and Sarah and Steven were awesome! Sarah brought us brownies and let us borrow their chairs and umbrella for the beach. They were around if we needed them but otherwise we had our privacy. You can't beat the price and quality!!

A Quick 10 minutes (by car) to Beautiful white sand beaches. A comfortable bed (super soft) with great linens and a cozy down comforter. We loved the private bathroom and huge shower.

    Close to downtown Sarasota and Lido beach only a 15 minute drive from the house. Our place is close to nightlife, public transportation, the city center, & parks. You’ll love the cottage because of the location, the ambiance, the outdoors space, and the neighborhood. Wonderful for couples or solo adventurers.
    Arlington Park is about 4 blocks away, with Olympic size swimming pool, tennis courts, walking trails, and various activities. YMCA is 2 blocks away, and 2 miles to the center of downtown Sarasota.
  • This little studio is clean quiet and has everything you need. Ray is very nice and helpful. Would recommend it!

We loved the little touches like extra beach towels, shampoo, and tumblers to take to the beach. Its a quick 15 minute drive to both siesta key and longboat key. We loved our stay! Highly recommend!

Pretty gardens lead you to a stylish villa in the best location - Laurel Park, a quiet residential area in the heart of downtown.

    Sarasota vacation villas don't get much better than this. Your accommodation is in the most conveniently-placed part of Downtown, Laurel Park. It is nestled in a quiet cul-de-sac but still close to all of Sarasota's amenities and attractions. In fact, you'll be just a 5-minute walk away from Main Street in Downtown. Friendly locals and a community vibe make Laurel Park utterly charming. It's a National Historic District, established in the 1920s, and what we like to call a walk-to-town neighborhood. It's a place where people wave and speak to one another when they meet on the sidewalk; a place where folks walk their dogs, play in the park, and watch out for one another. This small town of historic apartment buildings and single-family homes has long had a diversity of renters and resident owners. With a modest amount of grandfathered commercial structures and easy access to the many surrounding restaurants and shops, Laurel Park embodies the new urbanist ideal of a walkable community.
  • Place was perfect. Communication was awesome. Location was solid. Literally zero complaints. I highly suggest this place for anyone coming to Sarasota.

    David2018-03-07T00:00:00Z
  • Buena ubicación. Cómodo.

    Wilson2018-05-05T00:00:00Z
  • We loved our stay here! It is located within a small radius of many great restaurants! We enjoyed being close to St. Armand’s Circle and a 20 minute drive to Siesta Key. Charlie was amazing at communicating and make the whole process easy! We ran into a slight problem with the electricity on the first day and Diane was at the house within 5 minutes to fix the problem. We enjoyed our stay and highly recommend this property!

    Haley2018-04-01T00:00:00Z
  • I gave Charlie's home 4 stars only because the Wi Fi (and therefore the TV) was out during stay. This was through no fault of our host, I believe the carrier may have been doing some repair work in the neighborhood. Regardless, Charlie responded very quickly and was in contact as much as possible, working to resolve the issue. The home itself was adorable with an 'Old Florida' feel and was located in a quiet, charming historic neighborhood- convenient to beaches and St. Armands Circle. We were in town for a Regatta and were centrally located, as we made many trips back and forth to the complex. Overall, our stay and experience was a very good one and we appreciated Charlie's efforts to ensure our satisfaction.

    Kate2018-04-29T00:00:00Z
  • What a great place and location! The rental has an immense array of amenities to make your stay like home. The location is perfect as we were only 10-20 minutes from multiple beaches. We loved Lido Beach and highly recommend it. Our hosts responded quickly to any concerns and were quick to arrive on-site to provide any extra supplies we needed. We were so impressed with their hospitality and their professionalism.

    Yakaira2018-08-04T00:00:00Z
  • Great place! The home was modeled as if were out of a magazine!The hosts were very friendly and quick to respond to any questions I had.

    A fabulous apartment just 1.6 miles to the crystal white sands of Siesta Key - an easy walk over the bridge to dining & nightlife. Your private apartment is 1/2 of a duplex, & has everything you need - a super cozy queen size bed w/ private patio just off your bedroom. Just bring your bathing suit. Outside on the common grounds is BBQ grill, dining & seating area & beautiful pool. Lounge poolside or pop over to Siesta for the day or to enjoy a breathtaking sunset.
    You couldn't ask for a better location and you will be delighted when you step inside your super cute apartment. Renovated to be as "green" as possible- from low VOC paint, repurposed furniture to bamboo bedding, you are not choosing a place to crash- but rather a true vacation experience you will always remember. You enter into a great room with a 60 inch flat screen TV, premium cable package, comfortable seating and a retro kitchen with a bar for dining. Down the hall is your private bath with rainhead shower and then finally your bedroom has a nice size closet and a comfortable queen bed. Just off your bedroom door is a private patio to enjoy your morning coffee or just relax and read a book. Outside is a BBQ and picnic area, a private hot tub area, Plenty of outdoor space for you to relax and enjoy the beautiful grounds
    Walk to the beach or bars & dining areas of Siesta Key.- just over the Stickney Point Bridge on the south side (to your left) you will find the famous Capt Curts Crab and Oyster Bar and the Sniki Tiki Bar. Just before the bridge you have Stonewood Grill and Carrabbas Italian Restaurants, an ice cream shop, a nail joint, an organic grocery store and a gluten free bakery
  • Location was not as close to the beach as described. Definitely would stay at a place closer to the beach/village next time. The apartment was cute and a good size for just two people. It said beach chairs and cooler were included but did not find those. Also, washer and dryer not accessible from our unit we stayed in. It's a cute place but outdated. No oven or microwave in the kitchen. Definitely Don't think it was featured on HGTV. Ants were all over the kitchen and bathroom as well.

    Shelby2017-10-02T00:00:00Z
  • Very cute space, very close to all the cool spots in Sarasota! Me and my husband loved this rental! Thank you!

    Shakeira2017-10-15T00:00:00Z
  • Was as described and central for everything

    David2017-04-12T00:00:00Z
  • The apartment is in a great location, one mile from beautiful Siesta Beach 15 min walk or free parking) but also just 5 minutes walk to some great restaurants and a superb ice cream shop among the local shopping malls. Apartment is spacious, with protected outside seating area too and a cool (in both meanings...) pool. The lounge is comfortable and the TV incl Netflix well worth having. Bedroom and bathroom are fine if not immaculate, but comfortable and everything you need. Only criticism would be of the kitchen, which is rather tired and needs renewing to match the rest if the place. A nice personal welcome from Angelina too.

    Tony2017-02-25T00:00:00Z
  • This was SUCH a cute place! Loved our stay!

    Chelsea2017-03-16T00:00:00Z
  • The apartment was very clean, cold, and easy to find. Super great location... close to the beaches of siesta key but on the mainland just across the bridge. Easy walk to anything. The bed was very comfortable... especially the sheets! Great hot water after a long day out in the sun. Very comfortable couch to chill on. These ladies have really thought of everything. The kitchen was well stocked with essentials making it easy to just bring some eggs for breakfast. They also left a spread of chips and oatmeal... even a bottle of wine. Bathroom was stocked with shampoo and soap and plenty of towels.... including beach towels. The space was private and quiet. We would definitely stay here again.

    Tess2016-09-14T00:00:00Z
  • This place is perfect, it is walking and biking distance from the beach and some great bars. The apartment is amazing, my girlfriend loved it, she would not stop telling me how cute it was. The pool is awesome and you feel right at home. We can’t wait to come back!

    Steven2017-11-03T00:00:00Z
  • This little place is a gem! The decor is adorable, the backyard space is fantastic and private. The beach was a bit far of a walk (about a mile) for my taste along busy, noisy streets, especially carrying beach gear, but I just drove about 8 minutes down to siesta key where there was tons of free parking and great proximity to all the restaurants and bars. It was nice to come home to this place at night since it is in a residential area, but still very close to everything. Kimberly was great about communicating, responded quickly to any concerns, and even left a bottle of wine for arrival! Everything was clean and well-equipped. I really enjoyed having my morning tea outside by the pool with the fantastic breeze. Even having "neighbors" was fun, we got along and hung out a bit even. Rent this place, you won't be disappointed. If I was them, I'd keep it all for myself!

  • Such a nice place, we got to enjoy some of Betsy's fresh fruit smoothies as well as everything the place has to offer! Tons of fun things to do. Thanks Betsy

    Kirk2017-08-26T00:00:00Z
  • Best of both worlds. Perfect for relaxation but close enough for everything else.

    Shannon2018-02-20T00:00:00Z
  • One of the best airbnb experiences we've had! First off, we love Longboat Key. It has everything Florida has to offer without the high-rise condos, neon lights, and other tourist traps typically found at Florida beach towns. The beaches are quiet and private, even on holiday weekends. There is great kayaking and boating, and everything else you need for a good vacation. Bob and Besty's garage apartment is a wonderful way to experience all that Longboat Key has to offer. It is quaint and cozy, without being crowded. There is everything you need, from beach equipment, a well-equipped kitchenette, extra toiletries and towels, comfortable couch, large screen TV with cable and internet (that actually works), and even a two-person kayak with direct access to the water. It is perfect. And even though there is not a stove/over, we were able to prepare a delicious meal on the gas grill. And Bob and Betsy win the hospitality award. We were welcomed with a very good bottle of red wine, beer and white wine in the mini-fridge, and chocolate! Betsy even made us some of her award winning fresh fruit smoothies made from fruit from her garden. Bob and Betsy are pleasant to talk to, and even though they live right above the apartment, they were extremely respectful of our privacy. We really felt like we had the whole property to ourselves for most of our stay. Oh, and Bob kept my husband supplied with local craft beers. Needless to say, he was a happy camper. We had a great time, and will definitely be coming back!

    Amy2017-09-04T00:00:00Z
  • Betsy and Bob's downstairs apartment is the ideal AirBnb! It is charming and comfortable, and their property has several magical, tropical spots to lounge, have a glass of wine, and watch your cares melt away with the Florida warmth and Gulf breezes. Everything that my husband and I could have needed was provided! Bikes, Kayaks, Cooler, beach mats chairs and umbrella - Resort amenities for a fraction of the cost. The ( beautiful, quiet and uncrowded) beach was a pleasant 5 minute walk away. Keep in mind that there is not a stove or oven, but there is a well furnished kitchenette with a microwave, and a gas grill outside, that can cover most all of your cooking needs ( plus, there are many spots to eat great food in the area) Betsy and Bob respected our privacy, while also being warm, welcoming hosts- Truly offering the best of what the AirBnB tourism model has to offer. It will hold a spot in our hearts for many years to come!

    Ryan & Shannon2017-05-11T00:00:00Z
  • This place is a lower unit in a house on a canal lot... the place is very quiet and peaceful the upper unit is owner occupied by Betsy and Bob... both very helpful and eager to make sure you enjoy your stay... extras like a kayak and bikes where on site and offered which was great... beach stuff etc etc... Betsy and Bob are great and the property while its nothing fancy is very clean and confortable well furnished and Long boat Key is an awesome area to hang in... not to far from public beaches and from great shops and rentals... be sure to checkout the Mote Aquarium

    Rob2017-02-15T00:00:00Z
  • Great location, charming space, wonderful and friendly hosts. Best place I’ve ever stayed in FL. It is in a non-commercial area, which might not be what everyone wants, but it’s perfect if you want a quiet spot to chill. Close to the beach and an easy drive to shops and restaurants.

    Walter2018-02-10T00:00:00Z
  • Betsy's little place is just perfect. Clean and cozy, and lovely little spaces to hang out in the back yard, especially the deck with its marvelous Christmas-light chandelier. The "beach" with multiple hammocks is the entry for the kayaks, which we LOVED (we saw dolphins!) and the beach (no scare quotes) is a quick five-minute walk across the main drag. Betsy left us beach chairs, umbrellas, mats, an abundance of beach towels and little toiletries, as well as a rose on the kitchen table, a bottle of wine, and fresh bougainvillea blossoms at the front step. The kitchen is actually better than advertised: there's a little indoor meat grill (great for grilled cheese), toaster oven, microwave, and what looks like a great propane grill outside. Next time we will grill fish & veggies & set up dinner on the little deck--and invite Bob & Betsy to join us! What a wonderful little stay.

    Micol2017-04-25T00:00:00Z
  • This was the perfect getaway! The backyard was beautiful with bananas and a huge mango tree. They provide kayaks for the canal behind their house along with anything else you would need for the trip like beach towels, chairs and an umbrella. The beach is right across the street and very private. It felt like we had the whole beach to ourselves. The home was a great location and just minutes from Cortez beach and Anna Maria. Will definitely be recommending to friends and family!

    You need a vacation and we've got just the place! We are Dog friendly!! Walk to sunset point on the beach where you are “somewhat” allowed to have your dog on the beach! Not only are we super-close to the beach, but we're only 2 blocks to town (siesta village)...close enough to make it a quick walk (5 minutes), without having to deal with the crowds, all day...and all night! Here you have restaurants, bars, shopping, a grocery store and a liquor store.
    This is a 1 Bedroom/1 Bathroom. Queen bed in master bedroom and pull out queen hide-a-bed in the family room and a queen size blow up bed.
    You can walk to everything on Siesta Key...you do not need a car. There are free (tips only) golf carts all along siesta.
  • Chad was so wonderful. His place was the most ideal spot we could have ever asked for.. walking distance to the beach and the main town with bars and restaurants. Perfect place for my boyfriend and I.. His responses are within minutes (with great suggestions) and he’s so down to earth! We look forward to completing a trip with him again soon :)

    Erika2018-08-20T00:00:00Z

    Megan2018-08-02T00:00:00Z
  • What a fabulous little beach home! Cute “beachy” Design. Chad is great and offers advice of places to go if you want and very responsive. Walking distance to the one top rated beach in the US as well as cute little restaurants, live music. Chad and Delta (his dog) were very hospitable and made us feel welcome as well as local restaurants! We already can’t wait to come back! Thanks Chad and Delta for giving us such a great place to stay!

    Pamela2017-11-16T00:00:00Z

    Jacob2018-05-29T00:00:00Z
  • Chad was very quick to answer any questions. The neighborhood was quiet and friendly. Close to the beach and downtown. We had a blast!!

    Amy2018-05-08T00:00:00Z
  • This is a great location! And the two bikes available make moving around the key a piece of cake! The beach was a two minute bike ride, right past the center of town. And because there is no parking in that beach access area, you get a more secluded and beautiful version of the packed "Siesta Beach" just a few blocks away. We loved having a kitchen as we like to cook. The shared spaces need some work (keeping the grill, pool, and hot tub clean) and you should expect to bring any basic bathroom or kitchen amenities (although the main appliances are all there and working). The bungalow was a perfect place for our mini getaway. Thanks Chad!

    Elena2018-03-27T00:00:00Z
  • A quick walk (5-8 min) to all of the action. Seriously amazing food on the island. A quick 5 min Uber ride to the best beaches. It was a great time.

    Caleb2018-06-09T00:00:00Z
  • Great stay, walkable to the beach & downtown which was key! Only 2 downfalls, there is no bedroom door (we were traveling with 2 couples) and the hot tub is shared between 3 units. Chad was super easy to get ahold of, responded within minutes every time we needed something, and he recommended a great fishing charter for us to do! I would stay here again for sure!

    Steps to the beach, restaurants and dining, family-friendly activities, and public transport. This is a 2016 remodel. Great for kayaking and biking.

Short drive to downtown Sarasota and LBK
    remodeled studio apartment on Lido Key. Short walk to beach and St. Armand's Circle. This is a great place to stay for couples on a budget who want to go the beach, kayak or wind surf and enjoy the dining on St. Armand's Circle. Murphy bed and sofa bed in unit.
    Walk or bike to St. Armands. Walk across the street and go kayaking at Ted Sperling Park
  • You get more than you see in the pictures. O studio foi recentemente decorado e está novo. Tudo o que você tocar tem cara de novo. Desde a louça até os eletrodomésticos. Tapetes, almofadas, boxe, piso, tudo novinho e muito bem decorado. A localização é excelente. Perto da praia, do parque e da Armand's circle. Num condomínio muito tranquilo com vaga na frente da casa e uma piscina. O atendimento foi muito profissional. Os anfitriões respondiam todas as mensagens prontamente e estavam sempre dispostos a ajudar.

    Juan2017-08-10T00:00:00Z
  • Small but perfect-sized space for an active couple on the go!

    Jeffrey2017-06-18T00:00:00Z
  • Great location for beach, shopping and restaurants. The condo was cozy and comfortable. Would stay here again. Murphy bed was comfortable.

  • Lido is great.

    Zachary2017-01-25T00:00:00Z
  • Adorable little place with a lot of attention placed on decor. It was as if I stepped right into a room in my own house. The coastal/beach decor was very tasteful and looked like a room in my own house. As a matter of fact, I checked the tags on a few of the items so that I could find them later on the internet and buy them for my own house! The place is like brand new so everything was spic and span. I'm not sure we would have been comfortable with more than just the 2 of us in here, as it was a small studio but it was just as big as a regular hotel room (but with a full kitchen!). The walking distance to St. Armands was a little further than I thought, about 20-25 minute walk, so we just drove down there after the first time. We did have an issue while we were there and Will stayed on top of it. Although it didn't get fixed while we were there, it would not keep us from staying in this charming place again. Definitely recommend!

    Patricia2016-10-12T00:00:00Z
  • Tropical Escape was perfect. The home was very nice and clean and the outside area is beautiful and a perfect place for our students to collaborate. Michael was an exceptional host and responsive. We would definitely recommend Tropical Escape to our friends and family as a place to stay.

    (Email hidden by Airbnb)2016-12-12T00:00:00Z
  • One of the beds caved at night after the support fell off the frame. Michael could have just apologized, took responsibility, and promised to fix it. Instead he started offering discounts but never said sorry or took responsibility. With Airbnb support, we moved out after that night and checked into a Inn but lost a valuable day on the beach.

    Harikishore2017-12-26T00:00:00Z
  • We had an AMAZING time! The place is great, very clean and relaxing. Micheal is very king, was there when we arrived and was always making sure we have everything we needed. Helped many times with tips on where to go, with the bicycles. Highly recommend! Abbey is the best dog ever! Thank you Michael, we will defeneyely can back.

  • Our stay in Sarasota was great. Kimberly is a fantastic host - very responsive, caring, and approachable. You have total privacy and at the same time, you know that she is right there if you have any questions or need help. The apartment is nicely decorated, fully equipped, and clean. Being able to prepare meals is important to me and the kitchen had all the pots, pans, and tools we needed. Getting to the beach requires driving across the bridges and traffic can be bad during a busy vacation week. We spent our time exploring some of the great local attractions (Mote Marine Lab, Marie Selby Botanical garden) and this location was perfect for us to get around from. I would definitely come again!

    Nada2016-01-01T00:00:00Z
  • I met Kimberly about between 9:00 & 9:30 pm when she inform me that I had gone into the wrong rental place. I rented a 1 bedroom and mistakenly went into the 2 bedroom. When I arrived at 2:00 I texted my host to let them them know I was there but didn't get a response, so I texted that I was going to the beach & would come back after 5. I need a code for the door. The message I received informed me the door would be open when you get here just walk in. I went to the door on the right as the door in the left appeared to be the back door of the house. So things aren't clearly marked. After eating, showering & unpacking Kim came to the door around 9:00 to say I was in the wrong place & she helped me move my things to the 1 bedroom. That was the extent of any communication with Kim. I wasn't aware that I would be sharing the pool or the laundry room with the other guestswho also rented. The other renter had 4 kids & 2 woman. The pool had all the kids toys laying around until the next day & the laundry room had their clothes on the dryer & in the dryer for 2 days. The TV stand door was broken off sitting next to it. There was no extra tolit paper in the place or extra blankets & the dish spong reaked of mildew so i washedy dishes with paper towels. The spong should be replaced with each guest. The 2 bedroom had several small boxes of cereal in the cupboard and a package of candy orange slices in the refrigerator while the 1 bedroom had an honor cupboard asking for donations for breakfast bars for $1 or $2. Bedroom 1 offered bike keys and had a lot more information in the guest book and 1 bedroom not so much. I was looking for some relaxation time and the noise from 2 bedroom guests didn't allow that when they occupied the premises I washed the towels & beach towels before I left and tried to leave the 1 bedroom just the way that I found it. I must admit that I was just a little disappointed especially for the price. There were less expensive places listed but I chose this one bedroom as the AirBnB presented it well and the location was only 3 miles to the beach.

    Patty2016-07-24T00:00:00Z
  • The place was as described. Clean and nice. Homy feeling with a nice pool and outdoor area. With that being said, the hosts desided to rent out to six kids next door. Just being kids, but that ruined the Zen Den feeling for us. We had them sitting inches from the window to the outdoor area. Leaving wet towels, food and drinks everywhere. Jumping in the pool. Fun for them, but not for a place of relaxation. The hosts should have checked on them and I am sure they also heard what was going on since they live in the same house. So Five stars for the place being nice and clean and looks like the pictures. But zero stars for the Zen Den experience as advertised.

    Sindre2018-08-23T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing pool, location, friendliness....awesome space I would absolutely stay here again

    Valerie2017-09-29T00:00:00Z
  • Excellent experience staying here for a week. The apartment was clean and comfortable.

    Alexander2016-08-19T00:00:00Z
  • Kimberly's place is in a lovely spot; one block from the waterway (with great sunsets) and a 20 minute walk to the beach - which is, itself, picture card perfect. Access to the garden/pool on the premises is real added value, for those odd windy days where the beach can be a little cooler. Kimberly is the consummate host, who really couldn't be more helpful. During my stay we had an impromptu tornado visit (totally out of character for this region) and Kimberly very quickly sorted our temporary loss of power. Kimberly is hugely welcoming and excels in hosting and for that reason, I would thoroughly recommend her place if you are visiting Sarasota. Add to that how truly beautiful Sarasota is, then it's a no brainer - visit if you can!

    Sandra2016-01-21T00:00:00Z
  • very nice place. well equipped. good quiet location.

    Eric2015-11-14T00:00:00Z

    This room is only used for single occupancy (one person/no exceptions). A large private room on the 1st floor in a historic home near downtown, museums, beaches and most everything Sarasota has to offer. We live in a diverse neighborhood, both racially and economically. Check-in is 3:00-9:00 and we request a 30 minute window. Between 5-5:30, for example. Guests enjoy our relaxed and easy-going atmosphere. Nicest house in the neighborhood. We treat all guests with respect.
    Enjoy Sarasota in a large, comfortable home that is located near downtown, the beaches, museums and theaters. You can opt for privacy or interact with your hosts, Mark and Mark, who have called Sarasota home for 18 years. Casual atmosphere. A large, comfortable, quiet room on the first floor with a private entrance from the "back" patio. A large closet and a chest of drawers are yours to use. The room has a television with Netflix. We do not have cable television. The bed is a queen with a pillow-top mattress. Fresh linens, bath towels and beach towels are provided. There is a mini-fridge in the room but guests also have access to the refrigerator/freezer in the kitchen. Please note: the bedroom doors are the original doors and do not have locks on them. We're not going to be going into your room except with your permission or in case of an emergency. There is a half-bath with laundry facilities (gas dryer) down the hall from the room. The full bath (shower) is located on the second floor. We are gay (LGBT) friendly and treat all guests with respect. In addition to their private room, guests will have access to the living room, dining room, kitchen and a half bath with laundry facilities on the first floor. Full bath is on 2nd floor (see below). The living room has a wood-burning fireplace. The dining room table is available if guests choose to stay in and eat. We have a Nutribullet, a yoghurt maker, a centrifugal-force juicer, a Keuriq ( K-Cups), French Press, a traditional drip-style coffee pot and an espresso maker. We also have filtered water available. The four rooms are over 1,000 square feet so there is plenty of room to interact or find privacy. On the second floor, guests have access to the full (no tub) bath. This bathroom is (possibly) shared with other airbnb guests. The bathroom is cleaned daily. My husband and I can interact with guests as little as possible or as much as possible. Our interaction depends upon the guests and how much they want to interact with us. It is a large, quiet house. We frequently have friends over for "soup night" or dinner and guests are welcome to join (or ignore) us. We love living so close to downtown. The neighborhood is diverse and usually quiet. There is a bay-front park a block away with picnic tables, physical fitness course, restrooms and a small pier on the bay. Separately, two blocks away is a park with a tennis court and a basketball court. Separately, again, is another bay-front park located four blocks away. The park has municipal boat ramps. We are located a mile from the heart of downtown Sarasota where there are many very good restaurants, Selby Library, Florida Studio Theater Complex, art galleries, specialty retail stores and the Sarasota Opera House (seasonal). The marina is located at the foot of downtown and is very popular. Between us and downtown is the Van Wyzel Auditorium, Art Center Sarasota, The Ritz-Carlton and Hyatt Regency. The Rosemary District has several specialty retail stores. A short distance beyond downtown is Marie Selby Botanical Center, Burns Court with it's cinema, specialty retailers, restaurants, cafes and art galleries. Less than 2 miles to the north of us is the Ringling Museum complex, New College, Asolo Theatre and the Ringling School of Art. We are a mile from the bridge which leads to Lido Key (St. Armand's Circle and beaches) and Longboat Key. The distance from our house to beautiful Lido Beach is less than 3.5 miles (about 10 minutes drive time). We have off-street parking available for one vehicle. There are two bus stops (different routes) within one block from the house. Bicycles are a fun way to get around as long as side streets are used whenever possible. A major grocery store is three blocks from the house. If you enjoy walking, downtown is less than a mile from the house. We do not recommend walking at night, other than well-lit and popular pedestrian destinations such as Main Street or St. Armand's Circle. My husband and I are a same-sex married couple. We have no pets.
    This is a diverse neighborhood. As one guest put it, ". . . the nicest house in the neighborhood." It is usually quiet. We love living so close to downtown and the many theaters, museums, galleries, parks and restaurants. We do not recommend walking at night in the neighborhood. Use i-Ride Sarasota (for downtown destinations) or Uber if you do not drive. We've lived here for ten years and we've never had any problems. It is usually a quiet neighborhood.
  • Mark and Mark were great, kind hosts for myself and my groomsmen as we got ready in their beautiful home. Both of them offered us help at every step and ensured that our stay was full of amenities. The propert and home itself was historic and charming as pictures - made for excellent pre-wedding photos. I'd definitely recommend booking with them to any travelers in the Sarasora area.

    Gabe2016-05-24T00:00:00Z

    Gary2015-05-14T00:00:00Z
  • Mark was an incredibly welcoming host. The first thing he did when I got there was make me feel right at home. It felt less like I was staying in a hotel and more like I was just visiting a friend. His home is beautiful and very comfortable. Hope to be back next time I'm in Sarasota!

    Jason2016-05-16T00:00:00Z
  • Mark greeted me in the driveway upon arrival to their super lovely home and immediately made me feel welcome. My stay and visit to Sarasota was highlighted further with their hospitality in their beautiful home and in having the pleasure to meet Mark. I hope to be back in the area, and would love to stay in this gorgeous house with these lovely hosts! Thank you kindly for having me.

    Beata2015-05-26T00:00:00Z
  • Mark and Mark are amazing! They have a beautiful home and I absolutely loved staying at this historic place. The house looks like it's out of architectural digest and is really artsy. Parking is easy and downtown Saratosa is a quick drive. Anyone would enjoy the company of M&M and if you're in the Sarasota area I would totally recommend staying here. I'm definitely going back, when I'm there. Thank you for being such great hosts!

    Varsha2017-01-23T00:00:00Z

    This cottage is very private but connected to the main house. There is parking in the driveway. It is a quiet, old Florida setting within dense tropical foliage. There is walkable access to beautiful Sarasota Bay, Jungle Botanical Garden, Marietta Museum of Art and Whimsy, a book shop/coffee house, and local brewery.
    The cottage is a studio with queen size bed, bathroom with shower and tub, hairdryer, iron and ironing board, beach supplies, refrigerator, microwave, Keurig coffee maker, window AC/heat, television (Apple TV and cable), internet. Large closet. The windows open onto tropical foliage. There is a porch with comfy chairs.
    There is foliage all around the cottage and it is located in an area of "old Florida" with giant oak trees and hanging moss. Sarasota Bay is a block away where sunsets are watched every evening by locals and students from neighboring colleges. Some great breakfast places are in walking distance--a coffee house, a microbrewery pub and Thai/French fusion restaurant. Ringling Art Museum is in biking distance on a pretty bike trail. Jungle Gardens, a botanical garden/animal caretaking site is six blocks away. Rental kayaks are available near the neighborhood. Ringling School of Art and Design is in walking distance, as is Whimsy Art Museum. It's a great neighborhood to wander around in and enjoy the beautiful views of extraordinary homes ( 1920's, birds (sometimes peacocks!), and remarkable tropical foliage.
  • This is a very lovely place with a great location. Natalie is very good at communicating with the guests and a great host. The room is equipped with everything one might need for a stay very close to the beach (towels, beach chairs, even bikes you can request to take out and ride along the water). For those traveling with a car, there is a parking space right by the bungalow. We enjoyed our stay here very much and would stay here again.

    Damir2017-05-14T00:00:00Z
  • This is a great place blocks from the bay. It is centrally located. The room is adorable and immaculate! Natalie is very helpful. I definitely recommend staying here.

    Danielle2018-07-14T00:00:00Z
  • Natalie was a fantastic host. We loved the location, and the room and amenities were perfect. She answered all of questions and gave us recommendations of beaches and dinner places. Her daughter was there and they were such a fun pair. We look forward to visiting Sarasota again. If it is just the 2 of us, we will plan on staying with Natalie again. I highly recommend her. We had a slight addition to the family while down there, and she was very accomadating. The shower has plenty of hot water. It does matter how you turn the handle. Whoever visits next will have some extra beverages that we were unable to take home. Enjoy! This place is a must stay!

    Elizabeth2017-12-03T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great time. The house and the cottage are very nice. Natalie has thought of everything. Drinks, snacks, beach equipment and bikes were complemantary. I can only recommend it.

    Fabio2016-08-21T00:00:00Z
  • The neighborhood welcomed us with beautiful old growth trees and lush gardens in many yards. The garden right outside of the cottage was complete with a few sitting areas and the room was true to description. Thoughtful touches like sunscreen, bug repellent, and beach towels came in handy on this vacation and a tiny kitchen was stocked with all the necessities. I'm so grateful to have had the privilege to stay here and to have met/chatted with lovely Natalie! I would highly recommend this listing.

    Austin2016-04-14T00:00:00Z
  • This was the most thoughtful cottage I've ever been to! Natalie provided snacks, drinks, and such thoughtful appointments throughout. She has things like an apple TV, scissors, dish soap, silverware, a microwave and fridge, and everything needed to really feel at home. The AC was great and fast, and the closet was full of extra towels and blankets should we have needed them. If life ever brings us back to Sarasota, we'll look to book here first.

    Ashley2016-03-15T00:00:00Z

    Excelente apartamento. o Anuncio refletiu exatamente todas as descrições. Muito espaço apesar de serem apenas dois quartos, banheiros grandes, e eletrodomésticos novos. Muito aconchegante, limpo e em um condomínio muito calmo e bem localizado. Tudo na casa é novo e de excelente qualidade. A piscina apesar de comunitaria ao condominio estava bem cuidada, alem de ser próxima. Estadia muito agradável! Irei recomendar para amigos visitando Naples e região.

    Very nice and clean condo. Has all the amenities you'll ever need for a comfortable stay. The place is in a great location, close to great restaurants and 15 minutes from beaches.

    I stayed here for three nights over the Memorial Day Weekend, and this was pretty much the perfect place to stay in the area! The apartment is very clean and comfortable, with a totally updated bathroom and an AWESOME, huge, *fully* equipped kitchen. (They even thought to include things like a blender and a food processor -- if you like to cook, this is a GREAT place and helps save some money.) The beach was just a quick couple of blocks away, and Danny and Brenda also thoughtfully provided everything you might need for a great beach day -- chairs, umbrellas, a beach cart, even sunscreen. The super-comfortable living area is also fully equipped with cable, a DVD player, Netflix, wi-fi... Overall this was truly a home away from home for a relaxing vacation, and I would absolutely try to stay here again when visiting Anna Maria Island.
