From Elena: My friend Clara had to change her original travel plans last minute and I ended up traveling to Sarasota with my partner instead of her.
Dan was extremely accommodating in welcoming us even though the reservation had been made through Clara's profile (he was expecting someone else, yet he had no problem at all with it - something I greatly appreciated). His apartment is very clean and cozy, and every
morning he left clean towels for us. Dan was very friendly and
flexible with our schedule and our needs. A great host I would highly recommend.
Elena (and endorsed by Clara:)
From the very start, Dan made this amazingly easy! He confirmed our reservation immediately. When I arrived, he checked in with us via text to see if everything was to our satisfaction. We thought the cottage was wonderful. Nice kitchen with all the cooking needs if we desired to do so. We had 6 people, so it was a bit tight (but raising 4 boys, we are used to that!@) But we set up a couple of air mattresses and all was good.
The location was perfect. Just off of #41 but far enough for a quiet stay. Having restaurants within walking distance was very convenient. If we have any reason to visit Sarasota again, this is where we will be staying. Thanks Dan!
I agree with the other reviews posted about Dan and his place. First, he is very respectful of one's privacy. Second, he was immediately available to respond to our inquiry relating to wi-fi and how to use it (we are technically challenged). Third, the place was immaculate. Upon our arrival Dan was there to greet us and explain the local surroundings, eats, groceries, etc. Will definitely stay there again.
Thank You Dan!

Dan was an amazing, accommodating host! He was very sensitive to our privacy, above and beyond what we could have expected. He also made himself available for any request, and was just generally a great guy to be around.
Dan was a wonderful host.
He was always willing to help us and even gave us a lift to the wonderful beach. His house is pretty close to grocery stores and very spacious. The room was well-equipped and clean and he gave us lots of privacy. I would recommend his accommodation.
Dan is a gracious host and will go out of his way to make stay enjoyable. One bedroom house is very clean, it had everything we needed. It is located close to the Siesta beach best beach in the USA, shopping and great restaurants.
Dan is the consummate host. He even came over at 10:30 at night because we could not figure how to turn off the computer.
The accommodations are a very, very clean one-bedroom apartment with a couch that folds out into a bed in the living room. We had everything we needed for breakfast -- as well as a few gourmet items, like gelato! And Dan accommodated our somewhat erratic, changeable schedule. A very nice guy and comfortable place to stay.
Kate and Dan are world travelers so they are very open minded and accepting people. I was feeling under the weather so I did not do what I had originally planned to do but it was okay because Kate and Dan took time to show me around. We went to Casey Key and we had home made Gelato. Dan is an amazing cook and I was surprised to find out that he actually made some of the furniture in the house. The queen bed in the bedroom was more comfy then my own bed. They stayed with me for the weekend an I enjoyed having their company. Their home is centrally located very close to Siesta Key and not far from the Legacy Trail which is wonderful for cycling or running. There is a lot to do and all very close by. Dan keeps this place immaculate but very simple. I look forward to staying with them again.
