“Home Away From Home :)”

person found this review helpful

This was the most pleasant experience I had while staying in Sarasota on vacation. It is literally a home away from home and I would recommend it to anyone. Its immaculately clean and has endless amenities, including being pet friendly. You will never need for anything! Bruce and Cynthia are the sweetest of people and treat you like family. It really is a special place and I cannot wait to come back!

“Everything you need for a beach getaway”
Reviewed May 15, 2014 for a stay in May 2014

The small cottage is great for a couple wanting to get away to the beautiful Gulf Coast. We also loved that we could bring our dog along. The space is small but sufficient and you will have everything you need, even to cook a meal if you choose. There is plenty of private outdoor space, including a great deck with two person hot tub and side yard where you can grill and relax. The location was perfect for us, as we enjoy walking to the beach, bars and restaurants. Pretty much everything you can think of is within a 10/15 minute walk. The owners (Cynthia and Bruce) are very nice and will help you with whatever you need to make your stay as stress-free as possible.

“Honeymooners and Couples...”
Reviewed May 9, 2014 for a stay in April 2014

people found this review helpful

Perfect for Honeymooners and Couples! This is a very romantic, private, secluded, and cozy retreat for two. Close to Siesta Key Beach and Downtown Sarasota, this offers the best of both areas, while providing the peace and quiet you'll want after visiting there. Lido Beach and St. Armand's Circle (shopping and restaurants) are just a short drive away. As is the Myakka River State Park (alligators) and The Ringling (museums). The retreat is composed of three areas: a two room bungalow, hot tub deck, and private yard for your use. Parking is provided. The bungalow has a very comfortable bedroom/kitchen room (it works, trust me), and a roomy bathroom/shower room. The kitchen is fully equipped, and we tested that when my girlfriend cooked an Irish Boiled Dinner there. There's room for four to dine at the table in the private yard. And the deck is a nice place to unwind after a busy day, sitting in the hot tub or at the table provided there. We actually ate breakfast at the table in the hot tub area, and were quite happy to discover that it gets the Morning Sun there. Cynthia and Bruce were gracious hosts, and Cynthia was very helpful with suggestions for dining and sightseeing. She also offered us any assistance we might need during the planning stage of our trip. We had a lovely stay, and would definitely return again for a second stay.

“ENCHANTED, RELAXING, SERENE , PRIVATE GARDEN COTTAGE”
Reviewed April 11, 2014 for a stay in April 2014

Thoughtful would be how I would start my review. Cynthia the owner was just that from start to finish. From the time I booked the rental till the last day Cynthia was the perfect hostess. Upon arrival she gave us a thourough rundown of the cottage. Before and during our stay Cynthia sent me links and emails containing money saving offers for area activities and eateries. Even though Cynthia and her husband live on the property the feeling of privacy was there. The set up makes it that way. The cottage itself has everything you would need, a comfortable king size bed, a full equipped kitchen, very nice bathroom with a built in ironing board, blow dryer, and the shower head worked very well. The deck and side yard is where we spent most of our time when we were not at the beach or out and about. The hot tub at night was a perfect place to wind down and see the moon and stars. The plants, trees and birds that are in this yard are beautiful. At night Cynthia and her husband Bruce have some areas lit up with colored lighting against a palm tree with a fountain going. Just lovely. The beach is just a short stroll over the bridge. And of course it is the sand that just makes this beach breath taking. Cool on the feet and a beautiful light white color is what makes it so special to my husband and I. We definitely will return. It was a pleasure of a week. Thanks Cynthia and Bruce!
