    What guests are saying:

    “I am writing this review as I’m jogging on the number 1 beach in America - the Siesta Key Beach. White sand, fresh breeze, and bright sun... Life is beautiful! If this couple had their place available today for another night, I’d be there for sure! It’s the best place. I came from Atlanta for 1 night and was planning to leave this morning but because of this positive Airbnb experience, I decided to stay in Sarasota longer. Manolo and Fabiola were my first Airbnb experience. I created my profile here specifically to visit Sarasota and stay at their studio apartment. It was an excellent experience that exceeded my expectations in every way. Let me share some important details. WHAT I LOVED THE MOST: 1. Fabiola welcomed me personally and showed me around; her warmth, kindness, and hospitality made this experience very special, though they have the key in the lockbox and you don’t have to ever see them, but I wanted to meet them and so they came to greet me in-person 2. Manolo also came out to meet me; they both took me to their garden, showed me their mango, fig, and banana trees, goldfish pet pond, chickens which were happily running around, and their beautiful big black friendly dog-daughter LuLu whom I adore now 3. I was wearing just a towel when I met them because I spent the morning running, picnicking, and swimming at the beach; Fabiola kindly offered to wash my towels and blanket, and showed me a hose to rinse off my beach chair and sand-covered car, for which I was very grateful because all my stuff was covered in sand; BTW, this couple provides beach chairs and towels 4. The studio apartment check in time was 2 pm; I arrived to Sarasota at 2 am, walked my daily 10000 steps I’m the 24/7 Walgreens as it was raining outside, there I also worked out, talked to the kind Walgreens staff, then went to the beach and had an excellent time, and I got to the apartment before 1 pm; it was ready and in fact the entire time, Fabiola and Manolo stayed in touch with me and said I could check in because the place was ready for me; and this morning I left earlier after my peaceful breakfast on their cozy patio with lots of trees and a privacy-ensuring fence 5. The communication with my first Airbnb host was very pleasant, consistent, timely, and helpful, and they also wrote welcome notes for me on the wall of the studio and the kitchen table where they left a sweet juicy mango and fresh eggs for me the first day; this morning, unexpectedly and very kindly, they blessed me again with a sweet homegrown mango and fresh organic eggs, which I ate for breakfast with deep gratitude 6. The kitchen in the studio is equipped with dishes, silverware, cocking supplies, cooking pots, coffee maker, microwave, refrigerator, and a mini-stove, as well as soap for cleaning 7. The bathroom in the studio has towels, soap, shower gel, shampoo, conditioner, body lotion, and all other essentials, which was a pleasant surprise 8. The bed is comfortable, my sleeping experience was wonderful, the windows have heavy curtains for privacy and for blocking the sunlight, so around 3 pm on my first day, I took a nap and enjoyed it very much 9. The studio is only 8 miles away from the number 1 beach in America - the Siesta Key Beach; their location is only 7 minutes away from the Opera House, Sarasota Bayfront where you can see hundreds of boats and take dolphin-tours as well as relax and enjoy The Bayfront Park; the studio is 1.8 miles away from the beautiful Downtown where I enjoyed fine dining and a walk, the Botanical Garden - it’s all within just 2 miles from Manolo and Fabiola’s place 10. The environment in the studio is peaceful, it’s quiet inside and outside the studio, so I felt rested and recharged before my 9-hour drive back home to Atlanta After I left, I went to the Bayfront Park, then Marina Jack restaurant, then back to the beach. It’s an incredible experience. The only downside is that now I don’t know how to force myself to go back home to Atlanta. I love it here too much!!! Lol To summarize, I’ll say that Fabiola and Manolo are very good people who genuinely went above and beyond to make my first Airbnb experience 5 stars! The studio has everything guests need and more, it’s clean, there’s a security camera, there are no bugs, no bad smell, it’s truly a home away from home. The location of this studio is very convenient. I highly recommend this host and home! I’m coming back for a much longer stay because I now love this couple, this studio apartment, this city, and this beach.”

    What guests are saying:

    “Scroll no further! Pictures can’t do this adorable place justice. We had the absolute best time staying with Elma. She is kind and responsive. Check in was simple and easy, the location is convenient to all of the area beaches, and getting to use her beach gear is a big bonus. It’s a comfortable bed and a quiet area. By far one of the best places we’ve ever stayed.”
