The apartment was even better than described or the way my wife and I pictured it. Beautifully laid out and furnished, so easy to spend time in, furnished tastefully, etc. Kristina greeted us with a smile and loads of helpful information. I felt like we were visiting an old friend, even though it was the first time we had met. Their home is in a terrific neighborhood. Homes well taken care of, vegetations and landscaping around the circle are professionally done. This apartment... more like a home for us... was a great discovery. I feel lucky I found it.
The apartment was very clean and spacious. It is ideal for 2 people only. The location is very good. It is a short drive to Siesta Key Beach. It is not for someone who wants to cook meals because a stove/oven is not in the apartment. I also feel the swimming pool picture should be excluded from the listing because it is not up to standard for swimming. Some people may see the pool picture and think they can swim in the pool when they can't.
Stayed three nights in the Von Kessel's apartment while checking out the Sarasota area. Very comfortable furnishings. Nice neighborhood setting. Very quiet. Unfortunately too cold while we were there to use the pool, although it would be a great place to hang out.
Location is excellent for trips to Siesta Key. If you are up for a short walk/jog (1 mile), the view from the bridge on Siesta is great. Overall, an enjoyable stay.
The Von Kessels are exemplary hosts, their apartment is exactly as pictured in this listing - in fact, even prettier, roomier and more comfortable than we could have imagined - and immediately felt like home. They live in a very safe and beautiful neighborhood that is centrally located and easily accessible to all of the Sarasota-area main attractions. We look back on our stay in their apartment as some of the happiest days in our lives.
Very nice house, very nice hosts! The listing is perfectly located, 10 min to great Siesta beach. The house has a back yard with pool and barbecue, very comfortable and nice. We will surely come back!
We spent 2 weeks for vacation and the apartment was the perfect choice. The accomodation was very comfortable, nice backyard, pool and neighborhood. It tooks only 7 min. to Siesta key and perfect location for all other major activities. Our hosts were very friendly and helpful to find hotspots and make suggestions for trips inside and outside Sarasota. They provided beach gear and even GPS for car. Washing machine and dryer were a big advantage to keep luggage small and more space for shopping :-)
We can definitely recommend and would stay there again. Thanks for the wonderful vacation in Florida.
Excellent respite place for our time in Sarasota. Location to beaches and points of interest was great.
Kristina was a welcoming and friendly hostess; quickly showed me around the place before leaving me to settle in. The neighborhood is quiet and well located, though I spent very little time at the property as there are so many activities to do around the area. Overall no hassle or drama, had a great stay. Would recommend.
The Host were very warm and welcoming. They came out to greet me upon arrival and offered to assist me with anything I needed. Very warm and courteous.
The apartment studio was as described! The whole trip experience was a blast. Don't hesitate, just book. Highly recommended!
Kristina and Detlev were our first AirBNB guests as we only recently signed on. They were our usual considerate, responsible guests which is what we have come to expect in 13 years of vacation rental activity.
We would be happy to have them come stay with us at a future time.
Great girls! would have them back anytime!
Kristina and Detlef are wonderful hosts and you can rest assured to have a most pleasant and comfortable stay at their place. I've known Detlef over 25 years. He is someone who delves deep into the heart of things and will provide you with first hand knowledge and insider tips on the ins and outs of Sarasota. If going beyond the usual tourist fare is what you're after, then these are the hosts for you!
