Very nice rental
Fit my needs in all respects on this trip. Nice location- Quiet neighborhood near the Ringling Museum and opposite a waterfront park. Owner responded quickly and booking was an easy process. Neat and clean, well supplied kitchen, and comfortable bed. Be aware that stairs to apartment might be a problem for someone with mobility issues. Parking can be a little challenging in that the driveway is shared and you'll need to be careful turning around to exit. This wasn't a problem for me.

Our new vacation spot!
My husband and I had such a wonderful time staying in this apartment on Sarasota Bay! The apartment is literally a stones throw to the bay which is absolutely breathtaking! It's only a short 10 minute drive to downtown. The neighborhood is gorgeous and is filled with beautiful luxury homes and is a just down the street from the Ringling Museum of Art. The apartment was very clean and the perfect size for a couples getaway. Very clean and supplied with everything we would need (towels, kitchen utensils, coffee maker, etc). Parking is right at the steps which was very convenient. The owners were very welcoming and accommodating. I would strongly recommend this apartment and we will be visiting again!

Excellent location, okay property
This property is pet-friendly -- a need that limited our options. It is second-story, outside-entrance studio apartment attached to a private residence in an upscale neighborhood. The layout is pleasant and efficient, a host of cable TV options are at your fingertips, and the air conditioner is new and quiet. Across the street is a well-kept and beautifully landscaped public park that traces the shoreline of a scenic cove on Sarasota Bay. Friendly visitors, birds (especially diving pelicans) and sunsets are major park highlights. These features were balanced by issues, such as waiting about two minutes for moderately hot water to arrive to kitchen and bathroom faucets. The wait was especially unpleasant when washing hands in the middle of a cool night. We were disappointed that an inoperable window could not be used to increase ventilation.The window was inoperable in 2012 and remained that way in 2013 even after we asked if it could be repaired. And patience was tried by sporadic delivery of forwarded mail – including a tax notice with "TAXES" in bold red letters on the front inadvertently sent to Sarasota in June 2012, then held by the owner until our return in February 2013! Other annoyances with an accumulative effect included a leaky blender, rusty dish drainer, side chair with collapsed seat webbing, worn towels and linens, soiled doilies, holes in a window screen, and old throw rugs with tattered corners and backing that shed. If you think the above items are not important or that we are too picky, consider this place for its pet-friendly policy, efficient layout, and outstanding location.

The window is only one of five that does not work. I can not find a repair mechanism for it. It is not our responsibility to forward mail after the tenant has left. We categorically did not hold mail until the tenant arrived a year later! Regarding the webbing on the chair--it has been repaired. New rugs and towels have been bought. We were not notified of a leaky blender or holes in screen---will look into that.

Great place to stay in sarasota
Very nice one bedroom apartment with everything you need. Close to everything. Quiet neighborhood. Just a great piece of mind renting from Terry had no worries at all.

A spectacular location in a great city
This efficiency is pleasantly different than the run of the mill condo stay. You have your own private nook in a cute and fun apartment with deck. If you absolutely, positively have to live on beach, go somewhere else and miss the experience of being a few paces away from one of the most beautiful and quaintest coves in Florida. Flowering plants delight, an abundance and variety of birds entertain without end, sunsets enthrall and night skies inspire. You're close to so much -- except noise and traffic. And being pet-friendly is a huge plus for us.

Relaxing, quiet, great value
This was just the right place for us to stay to walk to Ringling Estate and New College of Florida. Great location, next to pretty, petite waterfront park, low key, very comfortable & affordable lodging for the two of us. Wish we were there now!

Great Location
Great location and convenient to everything you might need. Would have preferred to separate bedrooms as two sleeping beds in one room doesn't work for us. Needs a small table and some towel bars in the bathroom. Good television and DVD player. Fresh oranges right outside the deck.

Great Location by the water
I loved this place. It was off the beaten path of tourism but in the heart of Sarasota. Great location and would love to stay there again. Its made for a couple as they go out exploring or relaxing. Terry is a great host!
