Sarasota is a great community for the arts, theater and dining. Located on the Gulf of Mexico, Sarasota is on Florida's west coast; about 50 minutes south of Tampa, two hour drive from Orlando and 3. 5 hours North of Miami. Warm Mineral Springs, the fabled Fountain of Youth, is only 40 minutes away. World-class beaches( Siesta Beach just rated # 1 )are 15 minutes away. Saltwater & freshwater fishing is close by as well as boat rentals, sailing, bike trails, paddle boarding, wind surfing, 55 golf courses in Sarasota county and many tennis courts. Botanical gardens, aquariums, museums, live performances, symphony, opera and ballet are all available. There is easy access to outlet malls and major shopping and very close to Benderson Park rowing facility. I can accommodate two teammates of rowing squadrons Come and enjoy Paradise!
Great stay! Thanks so much Deb for your warm hospitality and comfortable accommodations! The place was spotless and that huge, double head, walk-in shower - wow! Loved the private outside entrance access as I had a very busy weekend with Family and being able to stay out late or leave early without disturbing the rest of the household was a plus! Definitely on my list to stay again when in Sarasota! Thank you! Karen K
I was looking for a quiet place to go to after a very long month of work and I got it! :) I was very impressed and Debbie and her family were very hospitable with me. I would def. go back to them! They treated me like I was family!!! :)
Debbie is a warm and friendly host. Our stay in this spacious rural setting was very comfortable. Debbie was helpful and allowed us access to all the comforts of her home. We would certainly return.
Gillespies were very cordial and accommodating, we appreciated their assistance. Home is very nice and our room was very nicely arranged. As described, a bedroom (with direct entrance from driveway) and bath for ourselves, small, but very bright, cheerful with refrigerator and thoughtfully stocked with refreshments. We had access to the kitchen, dining room and living room, but were gone so much of the time (great sightseeing in Sarasota) so did not spend much time there. There is a spacious yard and much to explore. It was a bit cold when we were there, so we did not take advantage of the outdoor space, but it looked very inviting. As for location, just East a couple miles of I75, and North of Fruitville Ave... a main entrance into Sarasota. A relatively short drive to great gardens, attractions and beach. Great value and a great start with Airbandb (our first experience).
Deborah and Rod were wonderful hosts, and their daughter, too! I didn't have much time to hang with them, as I had commitments in Sarasota and Venice during my brief stay. Their house is gorgeous and comfortable, and they were very accommodating. The room was very nice and provided all my needs, and I was grateful for their generous hospitality.
I had a wonderfull stay at Deb and Rod's place. I have been able to use the pool and the kitchen and Deb left me me a lot of foofd in the small frige in the room that I did notneed to worry if I needed a little snack.
I had a great stay at the Gillespie household and Debbie and the family members that I met were very nice. Since I was looking for a more permanent place to stay in Sarasota they were very helpful to steer me in the right direction. I would be the lucky one if I had the opportunity to stay here again.
Wonderful, friendly, fun, and exceedingly welcoming family. The house is eclectic, with a garden/pool area, cool detached man-cave, and small lanai/dock on the canal. The room and bathroom are well-equipped.
This was my first time with airbnb- and it was a success! Deborah and her family had a great personality. The house was amazing with all kinds of designs including the bathroom which is 5 stars. The daughter made this cool swim suit design that looks interesting. It was a great time for 3 nights! It was close enough to get 75 to discover all the cool beaches. Glad I picked this one- instead of the ones downtown that cost twice as much! Will be coming back!
Deborah has a lovely home with the bedroom and amenities well appointed close by to the room. The room had some nice appointments like a refrigerator and bottled water and chocolate pieces!! nice touch.
I felt at home and engaged in lots of conversation with Deb and her family.
A great place to stay and would absolutely recommend.
