The Frog House is an adorable one bedroom house located walking distance to Main Street Sarasota. This little house was built in 1925, but recently remodeled and now features central air, wifi and two flat screen TVs with cable.
Completely remodeled 1925 bungalow for rent, walking distance to Main Street, Farmer's Market and Whole Foods. Cottage has its own private parking space and completely fenced tropical backyard with outdoor dining table and two adirondack chairs for privacy and getting a great sun tan. This is a perfect location - bring your bikes and explore all of the historic corners of Sarasota with its fabulous restaurants and outdoor cafes, shopping, art festivals, theatres, opera and ballet. You can easily ride your bikes over the bridge and out to the beach too! Sarasota features world famous beaches. The Ringling Museum (free on Mondays), Selby Gardens, Myakka State Park (alligators guaranteed) and Mote Aquarium are other attractions just a short distance away. You will fall in love with Sarasota and the Frog House!!
Guests will have access to a private deck, and the "outhouse" Laundromat, a funny little shack which we have salvaged and put coin operated machines into.
Interaction with Guests
Guests have instant access to the apartment via an electronic door lock set to the last four digits of their telephone number-no need to stress about arrival times. We live next door, and are available via cell phone. We will generally stop by to say hi, and introduce ourselves, but try to give our guests full privacy, unless we can help in any way. A large basket with maps and brochures is available in the apartment to help explore the area.
We love being able to walk into downtown Sarasota and walk along the bayfront to watch the sunset. The town is especially fun on Saturday mornings during the farmer's market.
You can walk to lots of restaurants, shops and grocery stores. There is a convenient bus system to get out to the beach as well. Plenty of parking is available on the street at no charge.
Sorry, no smoking and no pets allowed in the Frog House.
Andrea takes hosting very seriously but also with a sense of humor.
She provided everything we needed for a comfortable 1-week visit that left us in love with Sarasota. I particularly appreciated the white binder containing great nuggets of wisdom about the area. There is so much to do in Sarasota that this handy guide proved an excellent start, right down to the restaurants best dishes.
In a unique touch, Andrea hosted a delightful Christmas Eve get-together for her friends and tenants.
This is the first time we've used AirBnB and we doubt we would find anyone more accommodating than Andrea. We hope there will be room for us when we return next Winter for a longer stay.
I am not sure how a place can be beyond immaculate but the Frog House was! A friendly, warm greeting (thanks for the wonderful bottle of wine), awesome spot, great neighborhood...Andrea's background in hotel management was apparent as a basket of ideas for things to do in the area and great suggestions for restaurants to try was left on the kitchen table. I can't recommend this place highly enough! Quite frankly, I would love to live in the Frog House. My 2nd spectacular AIRBnB experience. Thanks Andrea!
The Frog House was a wonderful experience! It was a well appointed and new, a very comfortable and private place. It is hidden down an alley in the heart of town. It is just a few minutes by car to the beaches or Main Street. Andrea was quite welcoming. I was in Sarasota to help my child move so having this wonderful place to relax made my trip truly enjoyable. I highly recommend Frog House.
Perfect place for my wife and I. Very clean and nicely appointed. Great location.
Andrea made the Frog House available to us whenever we needed it on check in day, wonderfully set up and complete with a bottle of wine to welcome us! The Frog House was perfect for my husband and I - just darling. And a short walk away to my Expressive Arts training in the Towles Court area, leaving my husband free to explore downtown and nearby beaches. Loved it - perfect! Andrea left us on our own, but came by for a quick hello, offering a handful of suggestions.
It was a perfect place to stay!! Everything was as described. Andrea an Mike are great hosts and we felt us very welcome. I can highly recommend this romantic, little house! Thank you so much, Andrea and Mike!
I had a great stay at the Frog House! I found it exactly as pictured. The space was very clean, well-designed and comfortable. The Frog House is within an easy 10-minute walk to downtown Sarasota, and it is about a 15-minute walk from the 99 bus that goes to the airport. Andrea kept in good communication and provided all of the details that I needed to know before I arrived. She and Mike even provided a bottle of wine! I highly recommend the Frog House for anyone traveling to Sarasota.

I am a graduate of the Cornell University School of Hotel Administration. I have run my family's gold award winning Americas Best Value Inn in Bradenton Florida for 20 years. I am passionate about revitalizing Downtown Sarasota and the historic Gillespie Park Neighborhood where I have lived and worked for over 10 years. My husband and I live with our spoiled rotten Vizlsa named Lucy. We love to walk Lucy and ride our bikes into downtown and out to the beach.
