About Lana Murphy

Hi there - I'm Lana, property owner and manager of this beautiful condo. I take pride in making sure my guests are well taken care of during their stay with a clean, well kept and properly functioning home. Please ask any questions you may have regarding this charming home.

Lana Murphy purchased this condo in 2004

Why Lana Murphy chose Sarasota

This very clean and fully equipped condo has it all! Bring nothing but your toothbrush and suitcase. You will find this condo has all the things you need at your fingertips including a lot of "extras".

What makes this condo unique

This particular property is one of my favorites! With its close proximity to the beach you will have no troubles finding something to do whether it be boating, fishing, shark tooth hunting, shell finding, kayaking or if you chose, take the beach umbrellas, cooler and beach chairs, provided for you, and just chill at sunset or walk miles and miles of sugar sand beach.

Guestbook comments from the manager

The bed in the Master Bedroom has been upgraded! A queen size bed has now been placed in the Master bedroom for added sleeping comfort! There are two twin beds in the 2nd bedroom and a sleeper couch in the living room. The condo sleeps up to six guests very comfortably. Happy renting!

There were 3 of us and we had a lovely stay. The condo is very clean, quiet and well-decorated - just like you see in the photos. The rooms are a good size and the kitchen had everything we needed. We didn't use the pool because the beach is a quick drive from the condo. The communication with Lana was great as well. Hope to return next time we are in Florida!

Awesome stay in Sarasota, FL!!

  • 5 of 5

We found the unit to be exactly as described on-line, very clean. Visited Siesta Key Beach everyday! Was able to relax at the condo's pool after our trips to the beach. Pool was extremely quiet and very relaxing. The unit had everything we needed during our stay, beds were comfortable. Thank you, Lana for your quick responses and taking care of our accommodations. You were very helpful in your recommendations since this was our first visit to Sarasota. We will be re-visiting!

Just What We Needed

  • 5 of 5

This condo was just what our family of five (two adults and three young children) needed. The condo was clean, tastefully decorated and stocked with many little extras that made our stay even more convenient. Just a short drive from Siesta beach made trips to the beach easy and the pool was well-maintained and a perfect temperature for the warm week we had. The half bath off the master bedroom was large enough to fit our toddler's pack and play in, so she had her very own little room. One thing to note is that the railing bars on the balcony were too wide apart, so our toddler required direct supervision out there (actually, we just kept her inside), but this in no way detracted from our experience. Thank you to the owners for a lovely stay at a very reasonable price!
