We’ve stayed at a few AirBnB sites over the past few years and learned that there’s a certain amount of accommodating you have to do where you’re renting. However, our experience in this home has been quite difficult. We stayed for 5 weeks and found that the entire kitchen…

Karen's charming property is gorgeous, spotless and convenient to everywhere. She was truly a super host. We hated to leave. After 10 days it started to feel like home to us.

You’ll love the quaint accommodation, And, if the weather is good, you’ll have good times on the porch. I love the front garden that shields you from the street. The neighborhood is great and in a perfect place to walk downtown, go to the beaches for sunset viewing.

Karen's place is unbelievably cute! I found the place clean and tidy, and she was always open to communicate and attentive in case we had any questions. Definitely better staying here next time I visit Sarasota!

Karen‘s cottage was a great location. It was within walking distance to downtown. Clean, very cozy, it was a lovely place to spend the week. It was very homey, and we found ourselves enjoying breakfasts on the front porch surrounded by her beautiful orchids, and lush landscape…

Thanks for the kind words. The friendship factor is both ways! My favorite time would be to visit your neck of the woods when the leaves change. That far north it's probably more like September, I'm guessing. Should it be possible, I'll post you! Best, Karen
