Comfortable guest room with full size bed that looks out onto lush and green courtyard. Feel free to use all the living spaces including kitchen, living/dining room and Florida room. Ten miles of walking trails just outside the door. Community pool and parking available. Very safe neighborhood, all beautifully maintained. Ten minutes from downtown Sarasota, home of Americas #1 beach, Siesta. Just minutes from Ringling Museum of Art and the Asolo Theater. Lots of restaurants and shopping nearby and right across the street from Benderson Park rowing facility.
I have two very comfortable foam mattresses that can be used on the floor as well. This can accommodate two children or two teammates of rowing squadrons.

Guest Access

Feel free to use the kitchen, living room with 55" TV, and glassed in tropical lanai. Pool is located nearby. Two golf courses available to the public in The Meadows country club.

Interaction with Guests

I live here and I will be available to help you settle in. Sometimes my pet sitting business requires over night stays away from home. On those nights when I'm away, I'm just a phone call and never more than 15 mins away.

The Neighborhood

The Meadows is a beautiful community of lush green neighborhoods featuring houses, condos and villas. Winding tree lined streets and ponds with beautiful golf courses meandering throughout. The village is a short walk away featuring an Italian restaurant, pub, deli, bank, barber shop, travel agent and real estate office. There is also a casual restaurant next to the tennis courts. Built and designed by an English architect, The Meadows has a lovely feel ideal for walking and enjoying the scenery. Very safe neighborhood with security patrols around the clock.

Getting around

Parking is available directly across from the villa. 15 minutes from Sarasota international airport. 55 minutes from Tampa international.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • The entire experience was great. Kathy immediately made us feel at home. Her home is in a lovely area and she has it decorated beautifully.
    She asked about our interests and made some great suggestions on where we could find what we wanted. She joined us for kayaking, pre-season baseball and St. Pat's day.
    What a wonderful time!

  • Generous, interesting, knowledgeable, and happy to be sharing her lovely home with new friends. Her motto, "my home is your home" certainly made us feel welcome. Kathy generously provided us with great coffee, delicious, home-made yogurt and a variety of fruit and pastries, all of which was unexpected. Her location provided a good base to take advantages of all that Sarasota has to offer.

  • A must if you want to discover Sarasota and stay in a little piece of paradise - the Meadows - at someone who loves this area. Kathy is a wonderful hostess and we felt very comfortable while being her guests. Besides the comfortable private room and bath, we enjoyed full kitchen priviledges and appreciated very much Kathy's availability as well as her knowledge about the area, which she generously shared with us.

  • Kathy's place was perfect for my visit to Sarasota. Kathy herself was a friendly and easygoing host, her place was comfortably and attractively furnished and above all neat and clean. My room was large with plenty of closet and drawer space and my private bathroom was right next door. I felt completely comfortable sharing Kathy's home with her. She has a designer's eye with plants making for delightful gardens. The beautiful Meadowlands community is a huge established development with security patrols so it's very safe. It's a 10-minute drive to the Ringling Museum and about 15 downtown. I found it quick and convenient to get anywhere. Airbnb is a bit of a crapshoot even when the reviews are good. You'll not regret booking with Kathy.

    Hi Janette, Please keep in touch. I would love to hear about your travels. Thank you so much for the lovely review and your thoughtful suggestion. Best Regards, Kathy

  • Great room with all the amenities you need for short stay. Room and private bath was super clean and the shower was refreshing. Kathy was a great host. She makes you feel very welcome. This home is located in a very nice community with pool, easy access to main roads and restaurants.

  • Kathy was a wonderful host and more than that, a friend. A most enjoyable stay.

    January 2014
  • Kathy is a charming host--wonderfully friendly and helpful. Her home is beautiful and in a quiet and lovely neighborhood. And the bed and accommodations were really comfortable. I'm hoping to come again!

  • Kathy is friendly, vibrant, warm, fun, helpful, and knows Sarasota so well, she is a defacto goodwill ambassador for both Sarasota and the Meadows community. Her place is lovely. Homemade yogurt breakfasts, the pool & jacuzzi, Mia the cat, the sunny lanai, and Lido beach were all enjoyed.

  • Kathy is awesome! She came out to greet me upon my arrival and immediately made me feel at home with conversation and asking what I might need to settle in. Her home is situated in a very nice neighborhood with peaceful surroundings. It was a great place for early morning walks. Her home is very clean and tidy. She has a wonderful eye for design. The bedroom was very comfortable with the bathroom adjacent to it. Mia, Kathy's cat, was very welcoming as well. Kathy basically shared her home with me for a week. I couldn't have asked for a more caring and sharing hostess. We had great conversations and found that we had several interests in common, but at the same time introduced each other to new interests. I had plans to attend the Sarasota Medieval Fair and Kathy joined me. This was her first time to attend a medieval fair. We had an excellent time! We both had very busy individual agendas but found time to do a bit of grocery shopping together as well. I'm sure I have left a few things out, but simply put, Kathy was a wonderful hostess! In addition to her wonderful home, she quickly became a very good friend, much like a little sister.

  • Kathy set the bar very high indeed when I started my Gulf Coast trip and several stays with airBNB hosts. Her friendly and considerate personality was especially appreciated by this solo traveller. Thank you Kathy for sharing your beautiful home and gardens and taking the time to share so much conversation. I loved Kathy's freshly made yogurt in the mornings! Look no further when anticipating a stay in the Sarasota area!

The Furry Godmother Pet sitting
I'm from Sarasota, Florida where I own a pet sitting business. I have lived here for ten years and really enjoy the sun and water. I've lived in many beautiful places including San Diego, both Yosemite and Yellowstone National parks, Big Sky, MT, and Bar Harbor, ME. I love to travel and enjoy anything outdoors. Throughout my years of traveling, the hosteling handbook was always with me. I loved the fact that all the places I stayed were so unique. I met so many like minded people who loved to travel and had a spirit of adventure. I visited several of them again and again because I found the owners to be so nice and interesting. With AIRBNB I hope to return the favor. If you need suggestions for fun things to do in Sarasota look no further. I love helping people with their vacation plans. That's what I did in Yellowstone!
