Guestbook comments from the owner

A wonderfully appointed and clean house with a million dollar view. We love this time of year when not so busy on the Island. This is our 4th vacation at Shady Pines. We always stay two weeks and have gotten to know the owners, Monique & Bob. It has everything you need for a relaxing stay. It is private, yet close to restaurants and shopping. You can park your car and use the free trolley! We will be back !

Great vacation rental

  • 4 of 5
If you want a quiet single family home that is still close to the main road with the restaurants and shops, this is the place. It is also out the back door and you are on the beach!! Couldn't think of anything the house didn't provide. Beautiful ocean view from the whole back side of the can hear the waves!!

Perfect location! Sun,beautiful beach to walk on, swimming, birding, paddle boarding, incredible sunsets. I have been coming to this paradise for the past five years for a girls' getaway. There are great restaurants and shopping within walking distance. The house is wonderful, the owners are extremely helpful and responsive. It is a perfect vacation destination.

Wonderful Time

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful time at this property. I highly recommend it, and would love to visit again.

It is much nicer "in person" than in the photos, in my opinion. I am a bit of a neat freak and was very happy with the cleanliness of the property. Everything was spic and span. The beach is beautiful (we saw dolphins on multiple occasions!), the hammock is pretty much the most relaxing place in the world, and the sunsets are right in your own backyard. Everyone we met on the island was relaxed an friendly. If you want to rent bikes/kayaks/paddle boards, there is a rental place within a two-block walk of the property.

My only "pointer" to people would be that the second bathroom (the 1/2 bathroom) is located in the garage, so it is not as easily accessible from the bedrooms, especially for nighttime use. That might be important for some visitors.

Hope to visit again soon!

Relaxation ...

  • 5 of 5
This home was beautiful and very clean. We found everyting to our liking (other than staying longer). The backyard area was perfect for needing some shade. Loved the hammock. The walk to the beach was so close, you could just pop back to house with ease. We liked the fact that the beach was not crowded when we were there and perfect water temp. Also the beautiful sunsets. We enjoyed the local restaurants and area and the closeness of Sarasota airport. We would definitely refer our friends and family here and are looking to when we can come back. Thanks to Bob and Monique for their hospitality.
