Small, Cute and Cozy but uncomfortable sleeping

  • 3 of 5

This is actually a cute little apartment for a single person. The location is great, close to lots of shopping and an easy 12-15 minute drive to Siesta Beach.

The problem is the sleeping arrangements. First there is barely room for that queen size bed, leaving almost no room to get out of bed unless you crawl down to the foot of the bed. Second, there is no box spring in the frame, just the mattress. So the bed is very low to the ground. Third, the mattress is very, very soft. So I guess if you like sleeping on a very soft mattress that is basically sitting on the floor, you're good to go. If you are a little older and the bones sometimes object, this makes for bad nights of sleep and difficulties getting out of bed.

There were some issues with cleaning up after the last renter as well. The refrigerator and toaster oven had food spills that had not been cleaned up. All of the dishes and service wear had to wash because of dried food and drink on the outside of cups and underside of dishes. Dead ants in the cupboards, so that needed to be wiped out as well.

Bathroom is great and it was clean! The screened lanai is also a very nice addition to the property.

This studio was perfect for me. The little black kitty that lives outside on the property became my buddy while I was there. Hoping to rent it again next year
