traveler reviews for this sarasota villa rental

Had an amazing time!

Review submitted: December 11, 2013   Date of arrival: November 8, 2013

We booked this home a full year before our Nov arrival and from the beginning Joyce was available extremely helpful and professional throughout. We were very happy when we arrived to find a beautiful very clean home in in the fantastic setting of University Park. The only surprise to us was the attention to detail Joyce and Trevor had taken to make sure their guests felt welcome. If you are looking for a vacation home with no surprises at a reasonable price then look no further. You won't regret your choice

Fantastic stay

Review submitted: September 23, 2013   Date of arrival: July 13, 2013

There is not much I can say about our stay in this amazing house that has not already been said. We were completely comfortable in this wonderfully equipped spacious house. We want to thank Joyce very much for her kind card, wine and phone calls making sure that everything was in order for us. There were pool toys, beach toys, beach chairs and plenty of ideas of what to do and where to go with our children. Our holiday was the best we have ever had in America and we loved every moment of being able to share you wonderful home. Thank you both very much.

Would I recommend this vacation rental to my best friend? Absolutely!
