Overview

About the property

Cottage, 1 Bedrooms, 1 Baths, sleeps 2

This is a recently renovated cottage in the neighborhood of Laurel Park, designated a National Historic District. A short walk to all that downtown Sarasota offers: restaurants, wine bars, shops, galleries, movies, the bayfront park and marina, the opera, Marie Selby Botanical Gardens. And ten to 15 minutes' drive takes you to Lido or Siesta beaches.Terra cotta tile floors throughout and cottage-style beadboard give a fresh and airy feel; the rattan ceiling fan and wood furnishings contribute a touch of old Key West. A screened-in porch with wicker armchairs adds to the relaxed atmosphere; pick your own tangerines in the yard.

A recent guest wrote: 'The cottage is such a comfortable, cozy place to spend a vacation! We were there for two months last winter. It is perfectly situated, walkably close to everything the beautiful city of Sarasota has to offer in the historic, peaceful, downtown neighborhood of Laurel Park. We enjoyed every minute of our stay there! ' Judy D, Massachusetts

Property was secluded with beautiful plants and trees. Felt very private. Laundry room attached to cottage. Nice kitchen. We had gorgeous weather while we here so we're not inside much. Comfortable for two.

Beautiful cottage, Quiet area downtown.

  • 5 of 5

My lady and I spent 3 months in this space while on business in sarasota and it was perfect. Super great area right off the main roads and a short walk to the art areas and downtown. The way the cottage sits back off the street it gives a lot of privacy and there is a charming screened in porch and an area out front to grill and enjoy the wonderful garden. The area was very safe and quiet and parking was off street. The wifi was fast and all the amenities were very nice. The manager is very nice and helpful. All in all we could not have wished for more - it was really perfect. We would totally recommend this place. If you're looking to stay in the Sarasota area you could not wish for a better place with a better location!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and myself enjoyed our 4 week stay at the cottage,it is situated on a quiet side street

We especially enjoyed our morning coffee at the screened in patio the trees which surrounded it gave it enough shade to sit there in comfort.

All around it was a delightful experience.

Happy renter Helga

Wonderful Stay!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at the cottage in January of 2011. We would highly recommend this property to others looking for a small rental in a nice area.

The cottage is just a few blocks away from great restaurants and shopping. The neighborhood is older, well-established and has a lot of character. The owner, Marianne was very helpful with all of our inquiries prior to the vacation. We did have one small problem (no hot water) and she was very responsive to our needs. She was fully prepared to send out a service man immediately, but she was able to help us troubleshoot and we discovered that the breaker had just tripped. There is a nice screened patio where we spent a lot of time reading and relaxing. The cottage has a lot of special touches and it was extremely clean upon our arrival. We would defintely stay at the cottage again - it is a great value for the price.
