Interaction with Guests
We are happy to offer a light breakfast of coffee, tea and a variety of milk and juice options, natural or organic (when available) cereals, fresh fruit and baked goods which can be taken indoors or outside. Our guests often join us for breakfast where we are happy to be helpful with directions, restaurant reviews, activities and local destinations.
Generally, we are around and strive to be helpful in any way we can.
We have lived and loved Sarasota for 20 years.
Our single family neighborhood is quiet and welcoming, yet convenient to everything, especially the beach and downtown. We sit under beautiful trees and are surrounded by tropical vegetation and floral gardens.
There is a dog walking path next to a stream which is next to our house.
Our location is convenient to all of Sarasota. There is bus service nearby, but most drive.
Other Things to Note
We have a lovely little geriatric dog who will be around. She is deaf and nearly blind but gets around fine and will probably want to meet you. When not with us, she remains in the house. We are careful not to reposition the furniture, as she has memorized placement inside and out.
POSITIVELY NO SMOKING IN THE HOUSE OR AROUND THE PROPERTY
Mutual respect for privacy as we live on the other side of the house.
Lock up when leaving
No wet bathing suits on the furniture
We love dogs but they must be trained
