4 Bedrooms , 3 Bathrooms , Sleeps 9
Sarasota, Florida
The property and Sarasota were not damaged by hurricane Irma. We're booked for all of December and half of January and March. Most people wait until after the holidays to start planning winter vacations, so they book for February and March. Thus, after holiday school breaks are over, the second half of January is much quieter for rentals, and if you're able to get away during that time, we're offering amazing deals. Click on the Rates tab for details. Here is the house info:

Beautiful, spacious, sunny house in excellent condition in a nice neighborhood close to both downtown Sarasota and Siesta Key. Very nicely decorated and most of the furniture is like-new. Huge living room, dining room, eat-in kitchen, sunroom, 4 bedrooms (3 with king beds) and three bathrooms. 2 couches and 6 recliners so plenty of places to relax.

About the neighborhood
LOCATION LOCATION LOCATION: If you have not yet been to Sarasota, it's important to know that pretty much the only things on Siesta Key are the beaches which are normally too cold to swim in during January and February, and about a dozen mostly over-priced restaurants of average quality. You are better off renting on the mainland close to 41 and within range of downtown because there are huge amounts of restaurants and cafes, plus movie theaters, live theaters, live music, parks, museums, events and attractions like Selby Botanical Gardens, Spanish Point park and Pine Craft park, which is in Sarasota's Amish / Mennonite area. You'll also be much closer to Lido Key, St. Armands Circle, Mote Marine park, golf courses and other attractions.
Getting around
There are 50 eateries within 5 minutes and 200 eateries within 12 minutes, ranging from super upscale to budget and everything between, and tastes from around the world. 1 mile from Sarasota Bay, 6 minutes from Shell beach on Siesta Key, and 5-8 minutes from the museums, performance theaters, movie theaters, shops, restaurants and art galleries of downtown Sarasota.

Also within 5 minutes: Three large supermarkets, five banks, public tennis courts and basketball courts with night lighting, four playgrounds, an outdoor pool ($4 for adults, $2 for kids), a mall, a top quality major hospital, three yoga studios, many churches, three gyms including a YMCA gym with a heated indoor pool, sauna and steam room.
How to get there
Airport: SRQ: 9.3 mi
The house is equidistant from downtown Sarasota and from Siesta Key, and 9 minutes from Rt. 75 which is the only highway in the region. 75 takes you to many golf courses, nature preserves including Myakka park, the outlet stores in Ellenton, St. Petersburg / Tampa and Ft. Myers. Ft. Myers has the Edison home and museum which I recommend. St. Pete has the Salvador Dali museum plus many other things. The house is 6-8 minutes from both Shell beach and downtown, 3/4 mile from Rt. 41 (where lots of restaurants and shops are), 9 minutes from 75. It is located on beautiful Phillippi Creek which is the largest river in the county.
