Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • What a wonderful place to stay! Deborah and her husband helped me tremendously with directions on the phone and after I arrived her husband drew a map for me to follow to my next destination. I was so grateful for their patience. The comfortable bed in this attractive room, located in a beautiful house, and adorned with gorgeous, fresh, premium bedding, invited me right in and I fell asleep immediately, but not before I had a little snack from a very well-stocked frig so thoughtfully placed right in the room. Even more impressive and enjoyable was the bath which was beyond luxurious. Topping all this off, was the convenience of an outside exit allowing for completely privacy. Absolutely nothing is lacking!

  • We had a very short and sweet visit to Sarasota to watch our son perform in a music group at the New College. Deborah was very kind and welcoming and the room was clean and comfortable, just what we were looking for. Nice touches including a well stocked mini fridge with snacks and fruit were appreciated. I would highly recommend staying here!

  • This was a fantastic place to stay. It was extremely clean, comfortable, and included thoughtful touches such as a small fridge stocked with food. Debbie and her family were very welcoming and even made pasta for our daughter to eat at her swim meet. We highly recommend staying here!

  • 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

  • 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.

    February 2014
  • 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.

    January 2014
  • 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.
