Cozy, charming apartment in a historic 1920's home. Lots of character and charm. Amazing location. One block from the bay with beautiful sunsets. And just a few miles to the beach and downtown. Clean, comfy and a welcoming host. Great for 1 or up to 3guests. ****Please read the full detailed description for more information before booking. This is very old home, not fully restored, old Florida house. Hope to see you soon

The space
I want to let you know FIRST this apartment in on the second floor (see photo's). You will need to be able to walk up one short flight of stairs in the house to arrive at your apartment. The APT is lovely, quiet, clean, and has your private entrance. Hardwood floors throughout the house. . You will have full privacy, with a lock on the door. The apartment is attached to the main house, where my husband Chris and I reside. You will have full privacy and your own private entrance to your apartment. ***If you are expecting a Ritz Carlton quality home do not book. This is an old original Florida home. This is NOT a Victorian home or restored old home and has not had a lot of modern updates. Bathroom needs a little updating. We have a smart TV but NO cable. Also for parties of 3 : With a pullout futon for two and a large bed, the space can comfortably sleep 3, but please note that it may be a bit tight for 3 active guests- if you are ok with that.. we are too.

Guest access
Driveway and street parking (free). We have one designated space for airbnb. You will be very close to Ringling Museum, Jungle Gardens, Airport, Beaches and downtown. This house is on the west side of the trail in the lovely Indian Beach, museum neighborhood. * **Please note the front porch is NOT accessible from your apartment.

Other things to note
I am a 20 yr local residents with a wealth of info regarding Sarasota restaurants, nightlife, adventures.
**We are a Cable free household, there is a smart TV in apartment that you could log into your own accounts. [ Netflix, hulu etc..]

The house is only a few years shy of 100 years old. It is not perfect but has lots of charm and character. Some things in the house look a bit old and worn (Kitchen/Bath needs a little updating) but everything in house works perfect, is cleaned professionally before each guest and your room will be immaculate. See photo's.

Regarding check in and check-out: I have it listed as "flexible". I still require that you communicate with me your needs and I will try to accommodate depending on current guests. I try to aim for checkout between 10 and 11 and check-in between 2-3 OR at your leisure after that. But please check in with me and I will try to accommodate needs

The neighborhood is lush and very close to a sunset every night if you wish. You are welcome to park your car in my driveway. We are extremely centrally located, very close to downtown, beaches, restaurants and shopping. There is an elementary school across the street from this house.
