Guestbook comments from the manager

House Hunters Success (they are moving to Florida YEAH!)

Date of Arrival: Apr. 7th 2013

Bits Of Paradise Ranch is every bit a paradise!! Thank you so much for letting us enjoy the beauty, peace and comfort of your cottage, after exhausting days of house hunting. Sitting on the deck in the evenings, relaxing with a glass of wine and watching the different birds on the pond was such a delight. Thank you again for everything.

Dearest Lauraine,

You Kick major butt's! Thank you for everything! Any and everything we needed, you made happen. From early check-in, letting us park our RV here, letting our little one play with your children's toys, the amazing ranch tour you took us on.... I really could go on forever! Or stay will be remembered for a lifetime and the dogs had so much fun here! The baby loved her evening walks and playing with the horses and goats! We'll be back for sure! We're so happy we found you and your ranch!

With Love, the Gallagher's (Austin TX.)

Owner's Response: Hi India, Thank you very much for posting such a lovely testimonial and we wanted to say thank you for choosing to stay at our property "Bits Of Paradise Ranch" here in Sarasota FL.! By the way, it was my fault for requesting your review on the 1 Bedroom Cottage site, for you actually stayed in our Country House, a learning experience on my part LOL! We're so happy that you had such a memorable vacation with your adorable daughter and your 2 unique dogs, a Hungarian Vizsla and Blue Weimaraner . Its always great to receive a guest's praise and to know that we're doing a successful job. We aim every day to make our properties and ranch a relaxing and exciting place for all our guests, whether they're 1 year of age or have reached the Golden Years and where they can have the joy of making lifetime memories! We also truly understand that your pets are not only your companions but are part of your family. We're so happy that they too, can share in our little piece of paradise, for it was always in our thoughts, when creating our beautiful ranch. We're so glad we were able to share our lovely ranch with you, for it is truly a rare find and experience! Warm Regards, Lauraine

Peaceful and Tranquil Stay

  • 5 of 5

We spent 6 nights in this cottage while visiting with friends in the area. The location is convenient and easy access to I-75. The cottage was as described and we found it to be clean and the kitchen was well stocked. Our only negative was that we were on the go so much we didn't have enough down time at the ranch to truly enjoy it. You need to remember this is a working ranch and not the Ritz Carlton, however, it is a lovely property. We enjoyed seeing the horses and goats. The homeowner was excellent to work with both in advance and at the time of our arrival.
