Welcome to my original 1925 Casita built in the hey day of the John Ringling era.
We are centrally located between Sarasota, Lakewood Ranch and Bradenton, making it an ideal place to explore all the area has to offer.
Getting around is easy, since we are located very close the Ringling Museum of Art. Plus only a short 15 minute drive to downtown, Lido beach and St Armands Circle.

The space
You'll enter through a beautiful courtyard to the casita. The zen like space has lush tropical foliage and several beautiful outdoor garden spaces to relax and chill. The space has lovely furnishings, art and vintage objects . The beds are very comfortable with fresh 100% cotton linens and non-down pillows.
The spacious spa like bathroom has a beautiful soaking tub and epsom salts to relax and renew. You won't want to leave the tub!
A cooks dream with a fully equipped kitchen for all your cooking needs. A webber grill is there for when you want to bbq or cook fresh fish. It has a side burner too so you can cook alfresco style too!
If there is something you need that is not there just ask!
You also have a dedicated laundry room.
For the beach, we provide beach towels, chairs, noodles and a cooler.
We are a non toxic home. We use green cleaning products, pest control and encourage recycling.
Our Casita is a great location for families, couples, solo adventurers, and business travelers alike.

Where you’ll be

Sarasota, Florida, United States

My neighborhood is very close to the Sarasota Bradenton Airport, The Ringling Museum, Ringling School of Art, University of South Florida, New College, IMG Academy. A short 15 minute drive to downtown, Lido Beach and St Armands Circle, and 20 minutes to Siesta Key. Spring Training Baseball games for both The Baltimore Orioles in Sarasota and The Pittsburg Pirates in Bradenton are loads of fun too. It is a quiet residential neighborhood.
