Our overall experience staying in Mark and Stacey's home was fantastic. We were a group of 10 including 3 infants. The house was perfect. Facilities were spotless and the house was spacious enough for us all to stay comfortably for two weeks.
Mark was a great host and was easy to contact when needed. He went out of his way to ensure we had all we needed for the kids including pool guards and delivered a high chair immediately upon request.
Overall: highly recommended! If we ever go back to Sarasota we would definitely seek to stay in Mark and Stacey's.
We had a great time during our stay in Mark and Stacey's house! Mark happened to be in Sarasota during our stay and helped us getting the most out of our vacation. The neighborhood is very nice and quiet and it is wonderful to have the creek by the house.
The house is spacious with plenty of room for everyone, nicely planned and well furnished. The house was well cleaned. They provide with plenty of towels. The kitchen is well equipped which was appreciated.
Hope to come back!
Camilla, it was great to have an opportunity to meet you and Peter. Thank you for choosing to stay with us, we really hope to see you again in the future.
Mark is a very nice person. Throughout the entire time it was very easy to stay in touch. He is very caring and the perfect host.
The house literally looks like on the pictures. Perfectly located in Sarasota and 12 minutes to Siesta Key. Everything was clean and perfect.
You could not ask for more and I highly recommend staying with Mark!
Thank you for the kind review Tobias, we are glad to hear that you and your family enjoyed your stay in Sarasota. Make sure to look us up if you are ever in the area again.
We have rated our experience at the highest level regardless of the fact that we encountered a problem. The reason for the rating is that the problem was dealt with very efficiently and with the minimum of inconvenience to us. The home is very comfortable with plenty of space and has a fully enclosed outdoor pool, which more than satisfied our expectations.
Nous avons passé 2 magnifiques semaines avec nos 3 enfants adolescents. Le quartier est calme et résidentiel. La maison est très confortable, fonctionnelle, et spacieuse comme sur les photos.
Tout est fait pour que l'on s’y sente bien (il y a même des petits échantillons de gel douche, shampooing, lotion dans les salles de bain !). La literie est très confortable.
La piscine est super : les enfants se sont bien amusés, des matelas pneumatiques, bouées et parasol sont même à disposition !
Siesta beach est une plage magnifique à 15 min en voiture.
Mark a répondu à toutes nos questions avant et pendant notre séjour.
Nous recommandons vivement Creekside Pool Home !
This the house to stay in Sarasota! Am sure its Mark and Stacey´s beach house, but visitors are always welcome.
We were a team of swimmers that went to Sarsota for a competition, the hotel option was out of the map, so we were divided into 4 houses, and this was prety much the best out of the others: lots of space, great pool, very clean , comfortable and the house have a great day light!
We recomended it!
Thanks Mark and Stacy
It was a last minute booking and my first through Airbnb. What a delightful time. The home is beautiful and the hosts are welcoming and accommodating. Simply a perfect location, 10 minutes from Ringling and close to anything you could want. Loved the "bird house" around the corner.
This was mine and my boyfriend's first time using Airbnb and booking with Mark & Stacey and we couldn't be happier! We stayed at Mark & Stacey's place in Sarasota over the Memorial Day weekend/week and it couldn't have been more perfect! The house was great, location was perfect and I especially loved the "homey" feeling vs. being in a hotel.
It was nice to be able to lay by the pool and relax when you didn't want to go to the beach, watch movies when you wanted to relax, and have your own laundry facility. My boyfriend and I have already talked about going back again and using this same place!
Thanks again Mark & Stacey for allowing us to use your lovely home! :)
We had a great week at this house! My husband and I traveled to Sarasota with our two kids, my parents and their dogs. The house was a perfect setup for this. My parents were able to stay in one side of the house with a door opening to the pool area to easily let their dogs outside without disturbing the rest of us. We were able to put our kids in the bedroom next to ours. My kids loved having the pool and spent several hours a day swimming. Mark and Stacey have made this house kid friendly with lots of games and movies to watch.
The location of this house was also great for us. We were able to go to Siesta Key’s Beach (about 15-20min away), Saint Armand’s Circle (about 15 min away), and Busch Garden’s (1 hour away) during our week stay.
I would not hesitate to recommend this house to any family.
My wife and I really liked the house and our stay; the living room was beautiful, the very large HDTV a nice plus, the sun-room had a great Florida feel, and the screened-in pool was really cool. The kitchen felt a little dated but was still nice and well-stocked with both dishes and basic condiments (a nice surprise). The master bedroom is comfortably large, with a nice tile floor, and is separated from the other bedrooms, which we appreciated, although the bed was only queen-sized and wasn't the most comfortable (though one of the other bedrooms had a very comfortable king bed). The owners were very friendly, helpful, and professional, and overall we had a great experience and would rent here again.
It was a pleasure to host Stacey & Mark. Communication was very easy with Mark and the place was left very clean just as it was when they arrived. You are welcome back any time.
Pictures speak a thousand words but you have to see this house to believe it! AMAZING!!! We have known Mark and Stacey for a number of years and we were probably the first guests in their home before all the renovations and furniture they now have. Located on a quiet suburban street, this 4 bedroom house house boasts many upgrades that have turned this older house into a very updated and cozy home. From all the new appliances, TV's and internet access to a screened in lanai with pool and BBQ area, you will settle in very quickly. Minutes away from shopping, parks and restaurants you will truly enjoy your stay whether you stay days or weeks. Truly a hidden gem at a remarkable price. Highest recommendation!!
A great place to stay. Situated on a quiet street, but close to the beach, parks and the fantastic shops at St Armand's circle, the house is spacious, yet cosy. With a pool, barbecue and lots of space to relax in, this place is just as cosy for a couple as it is for a whole family or group of friends.
I've known Mark for many years and he is genuine, friendly, and has a great ability to make anyone feel at ease. He's an easy guy to talk to with a great sense of humor. He has an amazing family with two great daughters.
Mark let me stay in Sarasota shortly after he took over the place. At that time he was making regular trips down there to personally handle the renovations. He'd take photos to show me the transformation, room by room. Despite his constant reminders that it wasn't even halfway through the process, we had a great time. Even while undergoing its facelift, Mark ensured the house was tidier than ours back in Toronto!
I've been to the "Sarasota house" many times since Stacey and Mark purchased it. They have put extraordinary effort into renovations, upgrades and creature comforts to make it an open and comfortable space to live in.
The transformation this home has undergone is amazing, and it is a beautiful and relaxing place to be.
I live not too far away (in Tampa), but because of their home's proximity to the beautiful Siesta Key beaches, fabulous restaurants, and St Armand's Circle, I try to sneak away to visit when I can.
Stacey and Mark are very easy going, and want the best experience possible for their guests, and have created an atmosphere where you feel as if you are at home, except THIS home has a lanai, BBQ and pool steps away......it's perfect!
