We enjoyed our stay at this Sarasota apartment. The outside is very enjoyable in the evening. The hot tub was pleasant and private. We used Uber for our trip to Siesta Key Beach, where we were told there would be very little parking available after 10 am by Trip Advisor reviewers. Had considerable trouble finding beach chairs for rent, only found one, however we didn't arrive until noon. Next day we went to Lido Beach South where, like Siesta Key, the walk was considerable from the road. We used the free beach chairs and umbrella provided by the owner of the rental at Lido Beach. We went to the Ringling Estate on the third day, which was great. I spoke to the owner about the need for a TV in the bedroom. My wife and I have different tastes in TV shows, so I left her have the only TV in the living room. I love the ambiance of the place in the morning with the sun peeking through the trees. If you are a couple looking for a romantic getaway, this place fits the bill. You will enjoy Sarasota much more if you are able to get up and about by 9:30 am. Restaurants are overbooked for dinner, be ready for that as well.
We had a great time on our first visit to Sarasota. Our stay was amazing, it had all the comforts of home. We were minutes from the best beach I have ever been too and very close to many other attractions and everything you need for your stay. Tracey was terrific!! Sometimes is hard to find a place that is pet friendly so this was a great experience all around. Plan on coming back very soon!!
The dog park at Arlington Park was wonderful, we already knew about it as we stayed in Sarasota in the past for 4 weeks for several years. I would have liked the back yard to be neater and clean as I would have loved to sit out in the evening, but the furniture was really dirty, I realize the tree didn't help I still think it could have been cleaner and the fence door fixed. The inside wasn't bad except they need a new couch and chairs- they were WELL USED and too big for the area, hard to get in with the big hassock in front of the door.
