Dan's place was perfect. We rented the entire place, and for $100 per night we received a private residence with a quaint backyard and a stocked kitchen. Trader Joes is just up the street as well as Walts fish market. A mall is just 3 minutes south. The home is centrally located on a quiet side street of a busy road. You would never guess that you had access to just about every store you could want within five minutes. The home is 5 minutes from downtown Sarasota,12 minutes from Siesta Key Beach and fifteen minutes from St. Armand's circle and Lido beach. The drive was much quicker during the week, as beach traffic died down. There are daily farmers markets as well in close proximity to the home. Dan was a great host, we like our privacy, and Dan gave us exactly that. This was one of the best vacations we've taken, and look forward to visiting and staying in Dans home again.
We rented Dan's cottage while in Sarasota for Baltimore Orioles spring training, and it could not have been more perfect. It's very centrally located between everything we wanted to do - beaches, night life, and of course, the stadium - yet on a very quiet street. It was the perfect size and the backyard area was great to just sit and relax in. Would absolutely consider staying here again when we next visit Sarasota!
Dan was a great host. His place is clean, quiet and wonderfully located close to downtown and the beaches.
The cottage was absolutely perfect for my husband, son and me to stay in while in town for the Sarasota half-marathon. We rented the whole cottage (which was a perfect size for the three of us), and Dan made plenty of space for our things in his closet and drawers, as well as in the kitchen and fridge. He was a gracious host and very accommodating.
Trader Joe's is within walking distance as is Starbucks. We loved the peaceful and lush backyard and walking the quiet street. The cross breeze through the house and tree cover made it so we didn't need to use A/C at all (though Dan showed us how to use both the A/C and heat if needed). Dan provided his iTunes music collection on his Mac, with enough variety for our whole family. The kitchen is well-appointed, the ceilings stunning, the beds comfortable, and Dan's photography on the wall was lovely. The bar seating made the small footprint of the space seem roomier, and the carport made it easy to pack in the drizzle.
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.

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!
This place is brilliant. Really great little bungalow with a garden that's great for chilling. Dan was a great host and went ye extra mile for us. Highly recommended!
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.
