About Becky

I am a native Floridian who has purchased my retirement home: The Rose. Until that day comes, I am sharing my bit of paradise with you. From the first time that I flew into the Sarasota airport, I knew that Sarasota would one day be my home. It is very difficult to leave once you arrive....

The Southgate community is close to everything, but the Rose is located on a very quiet, well-maintained street. It is a dog walkers paradise.

Becky purchased this house in 2014

What makes this house unique

This property is literally minutes from everything including the number 1 beach in the nation; Siesta Key. The perfect location in the perfect area. Enjoy the weather and the fresh air!

Spacious and so comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

We were very impressed by this, our very first experience renting a vacation home through Becky, the owner, was a joy to communicate with -- so kind and an angel to us on short-notice. Her house is well-equipped and updated, and everything was wonderful about it. Having a family room and a living room to spread-out in was a fabulous bonus for the 5 of us. Highly recommend to any family that wants 3BR's/2Baths and all the comforts of home. We can't thank you enough, Becky!

Fabulous, relaxing, spacious delight!

  • 5 of 5

As a seasoned VRBO user, I've stayed in many places, and this is one of the nicest I've ever stayed in. This place is just fantastic! Larger than we expected, super clean (love the carpet-free floor!), great AC, modern in decor, and offering the most comfortable "group" sofa ever! This home is filled with all the acoutriments needed to feel like a cross between home and a resort. Great glassware. Beautiful serving pieces. Awesome coffee mugs. Laundry detergent already there. Beach floats already available, even two bikes to borrow! A garage for the car kept it cooler. Parking is generous. Becky was simply lovely to work with--warm, professional, and accommodating. The decor is charming, the space abundant for a few couples or a family ! The location is terrific, so close to Sarasota, the GORGEOUS silky white sand beaches, and for us, a short trip to Nathan Benderson Park. We loved it, and expect to return!

Lovely house in Southgate neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

This is the third house we have rented in Sarasota, and the only one that we plan to rent again. The layout is very nice, all the rooms are good sized and well furnished, the heat and AC worked well [although February weather wasn't a big stress test!], and the location is convenient to so much in and around Sarasota.

We liked Becky's house very much

  • 4 of 5

This was a very comfortable home to stay in, in a pleasant suburban-feeling area of Sarasota. Easy to get to central Sarasota, the beaches, etc.

The house was clean and spacious, with pretty much everything you need. The yard could do with more trees and shrubs, but I suspect that that will happen over time. Altogether the house was very easy to spend time in.

We thoroughly enjoyed Becky's house for all the right reasons: nice neighborhood, convenient to everything, especially Siesta Key Beach and it met all our needs. We enjoyed the big sectional in the living room, the spacious bedrooms, the cleanliness and no keys! We felt right at home. Becky answered all our questions immediately and made it easy for us to move in and to move out. A lovely, worry-free place to stay is what people want when they are on vacation and Becky's property was that for us!
