*Currently seeking multi-month renter of 3 months or more for beginning of 2015. Will discount monthly rate. If you're interested in a longer stay some time between Dec 2014 and April 2015 (or later), please inquire for details.

Colorful, newly renovated Florida bungalow in downtown Sarasota that combines historical charm and modern amenities with Key West flair. Original pine flooring throughout and ceiling fans in every room - a touch of old Florida. The house opens, front to back, between a screened front porch and spacious 32 foot back deck with French doors.

Renovated, well-equipped kitchen with granite counters, stainless steel appliances, and all the kitchenware you would need for quiet wining and dining, or a family-filled back deck BBQ. Spend evenings in rocking chairs on the front porch with ceiling fan and mood-lighting, or bring your guitar and enjoy a cozy fire out back with family and friends. Fully fenced yard and tropical garden setting.

Bring your boat and store it in the driveway or back it into the fenced back yard. A free boat launch is located 1.7 miles away in Centennial Park. Fabulous fishing and tarpon season is on it’s way!

Arrive to Sarasota via air? Simply ride the bus from Sarasota Airport to our street, where it's a short tenth of a mile walk to the door. Sarasota public transportation is convenient and inexpensive, and has routes throughout Sarasota and Bradenton.

Let the Be Enchanted Bungalow bring a little magic and serenity to your stay in Sarasota.

Memories for a lifetime

  • 5 of 5
My wife, my son, and myself had a wonderful time in Sarasota. The house was very cute and remarkably clean. Grocery store just a few blocks away and an awesome back porch with patio furniture and grill to use. There was so many things to do that was close to the house. The Ringling home and the Jungle Gardens were really fun for the family. The beaches are amazing! Went to several and found many differences in each. Primitive at some (tons of shells and shark teeth), and powder white sand with all the amenities of home at others. Something for everyone for sure. My son is four and it was his first time to the ocean or the beach. He had a great time. We even went to Disney a few days. almost 1.5 hours away, but close enough to make it for a day trip. There was a cool vibe throughout the home and we felt welcomed and immediately laid back when we entered the house. Amber was super helpful and friendly throughout our stay. Customer service was excellent. There was a minor issue that was corrected after one call to her and life resumed without a hitch. The home was very clean and definitely ready for guests. I would love to come back to this home in the future, and if I am able to, would for sure visit again. Thank you Amber for your hospitality and sharing your home with my family.

This is a family home we enjoy sharing with others and hope it provides as much peace and enjoyment for others as it does for us. We hope our guests feel more like guests than customers.

Back again

We so enjoyed our first visit here in the fall that we came back. Just spent 4 days and enjoyed every minute! Had lots of rain so this time we used the screened in front porch. Missed using the huge back deck at first but, the porch is so nice. Very peaceful and relaxing. Love this house!!

Enchanted Stay

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I spent two delightful months (Jan-March 2013) in the "Enchanted Bungalow" and enjoyed every minute! We found the bungalow in perfect shape and beautifully and artistically decorated both inside and out. Everyday we discovered some small artistic feature or decoration in the bungalow. It has a large back yard with a large deck and a charming front porch. The bungalow is located within 10 minutes drive of the downtown attractions of Sarasota as well as the Ringling museum.

The owner, Amber, was a delight to work with as she was concerned about our comfort and made sure that all of our needs were met.

Our stay in the bungalow was restful and it help make our winter in Sarasota a truly memorable experience.

like going home

  • 5 of 5
My family and I loved this home!!! So peaceful and relaxing. We want to come back. It is a great location and close enough for the things we wanted to do! The back yard is a great place to have a few friends visit. It is totally worth taking advantage of. It was clean and well taken care of. Everything was just what we wanted.
