July 2022. Thank you Peter and Jeanette for letting us stay in your beautiful villa. It was a home from home - comfortable and clean with everything we needed, and situated in a lovely quiet area, which is ideally located just a short drive to beaches, shops, restaurants and attractions. It was so nice to have clear instructions prior to arrival to locate the villa, and also how to access to the keys, along with lots of useful information.
The patio/pool area is glorious, and we spent a lot of time out there enjoying the Florida sunshine. Thank you again, needless to say - we will be returning.

July 2022. Arrived for our second week in Florida after a hectic week in Disney to Peter and Jeanette's gorgeous villa for some well needed rest and what a place to do it! House was modern, tasteful, comfortable and clean. Pool was spotless. Everything we needed was there. Everything easy to use. There's an outside bbq as well. Supermarkets close by, quiet neighbourhood (except the 4th July 😂).
We visited Busch Gardens, Siesta Key Beach, Macy's and Mote mueseum (I LOVE the Mote museum). We ate out at Bonefish Grill, Miller's Steak House, a fab Italian Francesco's New York pizzeria, which was slightly weird, but the pizzas were amazing and the staff lovely. We also tried the very busy Parrot Bar and Grill on Peter's recommendation which was great as well. Lickety Splits Ice Cream shop near the beach was also a must for us (tradition).
I can't fault the villa. I can't fault Peter for all his advice, friendliness and making sure we were okay during our stay.

We had a smashing week at this spacious, well equipped, air conditioned property.
All our meals were taken outside on the pool deck, where the comfortable seating helped us to relax after a busy day in the sun. No stone has been left unturned by the owners in providing a home from home environment for their guests.
As well as fully equipped kitchen, there was comfortable furniture and beds. For entertainment there was a large T.V., DVD and CD player, plus Wi-Fi.
There are three large bedrooms, all tastefully decorated. We also enjoyed the large covered pool. The Villa is centrally situated for Restaurants, the Beach and Mall shopping, all of which are a short drive away.
We have no hesitation in recommending this lovely Villa and we would like to return in the future.

Excellent Villa and everything included!!
This year my wife and I decided to go somewhere a little different from usual as we had holidayed in Orlando for some 12 years. We had done day trips to Sarasota before but this was the first time we had actually stayed there. The villa is situated in a residential area of the city and we were a little concerned that it would be away from the usual tourist amenities and looking at the photographs were also worried about the size of the house. I can say right now that we shouldn't have been worried at all!!
The house is situated in a quiet suburb on a south facing site just a few minutes’ drive from the beaches and shops and is fully equipped.
The pool was noted as "solar heated" which I took to mean no heating other than the sun, but in fact it has a sophisticated solar panel on the roof of the house which kept the pool water at a constant cosy warm temperature. The pool deck had sun loungers, chairs and large dining table and the sun shone all day long.
The kitchen, whilst compact and bijou, boasted all the equipment one could possibly need and there was a gas barbeque supplied too. The living room had a large plasma TV, cable TV and dvd player and a Bose sound system. Each of the bedrooms were beautifully decorated and had plenty of storage space.
The wifi was amazing, very fast and reached all areas of the house. Unusually, virtually everything was supplied, except food and wine!!
All in all we had a wonderful time at the villa, and could not recommend it highly enough and can’t wait for our next holiday there, but you need to book fast as this villa is very popular!! Regards,
Des Garland, Bangor, N. Ireland
I have just arrived back from Florida and your fantastic property which we were lucky enough to stay in. Where do I start? your property was immaculate and just like a home from home with all the equipment I needed to settle straight in, and that swimming pool what a luxury and my 6 year old daughter spent hours and hours enjoying the freedom to play!
Sarasota was new to us but we will definitely be back as the beaches and amenities are second to none with that real special up market feel, we were lucky enough to try several of the local restaurants which were all superb.
We drove to Disneyland 4 times which was an hour and a half door to door and felt it was the perfect way to do as we weren't stuck in tourist areas and charged over the top.
All in all we will definitely be back to your property and cannot thank you enough. Oh and the 100+ degrees of heat helped as well!! With warm regards,
Dan, Donna and of course Ruby
We stayed in the villa in March 2014. It is by far the cleanest and well equipped villa we have ever stayed in. The facilities are second to none and attention to detail is amazing (tissues in all rooms and notepads and pens handy). The information packs are extensive and informative and the pool is great, really big for a villa of this size. We had such a good time that we booked again for next year before we left just to avoid disappointment!

Having had a lovely week in our Orlando villa we then spent a week in your beautiful villa in Sarasota. The house is very tastefully decorated and furnished to a high standard. As soon as we opened the door we knew right away that we had made the right choice in our accommodation. The extent to which you have gone to make your guests feel at home is very obvious, both inside and outside the house. The pool area is very well equipped, private and very peaceful. The location is perfect and everything is so easy to get to from the villa. We will have no hesitation to use your home again in the future or in recommending it to any of our family or friends. Kind regards,
Sandra and Peter Kinnon, Scotland
Having recently returned from your lovely home, I just wanted to say a massive thanks. The Villa was really lovely, and I know a bit of a cliche, but it really was a home from home. We all loved it. It was very clean and inviting when we arrived, comfortable, and quite luxurious. We thought the nautical theme suited the place perfectly.
And relaxing by the pool, what could be better. It is so close to everything, shops and malls. And the beach - well we just love the sand at Siesta Key - so soft like flour. We'll be back.
Neil Skeffington, Sussex
Dear Peter and Jeanette, Just to say we had a lovely time in your villa, we have stayed in several villas in Orlando but we have never stayed in one as well equipped as yours, the villa was immaculate, you have thought of everything. The pool was the best we have ever had also, and the information you left in the villa was excellent. Sarasota was lovely and we'll be going back again. Thank you.
Rose and Iain, Liverpool
We stayed at Peter and Jeanette's villa in July 2012. The villa was fantastic, bright, spacious and beautifully furnished with everything we could possibly need. Loved the pool. We spent hours sitting out, relaxing, swimming and barbequeing.
From the villa we found plenty to do and best of all we were near everything: shops, beaches, and all of the many attractions. We did not need to spent hours in a car. The whole family had a wonderful holiday and we will be back again some time.

Finding Sarasota Villa on the internet was a really good discovery! The villa is located close to many amenities and attractions i.e Mote Marine Laboratory, St.Armands Circle, Longboat Key and Ellenton shopping outlets. The villa is extremely well equipped, comfortable and clean. The pool and deck is a generous size and ideal for hot Sarasota days!
Dear Peter and Jeanette, we just wanted to say a huge thank you for the use of your beautiful 'Sarasota Villa'! We were blown away by how clean, tidy and stylish it all was, with a really 'homely' feel. You seem to have thought of everything and provided lots of great ideas of where to go, what to see etc, it's a great central location too, for getting everywhere. We have to say though, what topped it all was THE most amazing pool, we've never stayed in a villa with such a large pool, it was truly truly heavenly! Thank you so much once again, we'd highly recommend it to all our friends and family and hope to return again one day ourselves! Best wishes,
Liz, Steve, Grace, Alice and Lily x
We have just returned from a very relaxing week in your villa in Florida and would like to say how much we enjoyed our stay. The house is very well equipped and extremely comfortable, we were delighted to have internet access and comprehensive Sky channels. We spent a lot of time relaxing around the pool area, although it was not far to drive to the beautiful beaches. Shops and lovely restaurants are also within easy reach. Thank you Peter and Jeanette, we shall certainly be returning. Kind regards,
Diana and Alan Ladd
Hi Peter & Jeanette. Just returned from our holiday to Sarasota and would like to thank you for the use of your villa. The villa was ideally situated for the attractions, beaches and interstates. We found the villa to be more like a comfortable family home rather than a holiday rental. We very much enjoyed having the pool to relax by in the evenings and for us the BBQ was a big plus. Pleasantly quiet neighbourhood yet close to all amenites. We very much hope to return again in the near future.
Andy & Barbara, West Lothian, March 2010
We would like to thank Jeanette and Peter for yet another comfortable holiday in their very well equipped Sarasota villa with heated pool. For those that require a home from home with everything included we must give this villa the big thumbs up. The area is perfect for exploration of Sarasota. Beaches shops etc, etc.
We have had a long six week holiday and a shorter two week break recently in the villa. On each occasion we would have loved to have extended our stay; that's a first for us, being discerning British globe-trotters.
There is nothing that has missed the keen eye of Peter and Jeanette, we wanted for nothing.
Summary: We loved every minute of our stay and will, when possible, return to your lovely home in Florida.
Many thanks and best wishes,
April and Roger Letts, Blakeney, Norfolk, UK
Just a brief email to say what a wonderful stay we had in Sarasota, and how good the villa was. It must have taken you ages to think of all the things that were there for the benefit of people staying. We have recommended it to several people to put on their list of places to stay, and when we return to Florida we hope that it is available for us. I have to say that it made the holiday all the better, after a shaky start that I won't bore you with. Once again many thanks from two very delighted holiday home tenants.
Mike & Joyce, London
Had a fabulous holiday here - great accommodation (homely & stylish, comfortable beds, comfortable sofa, warm swimming pool - all very important!) great location, access to fantastic beaches..just waiting to book up for next year! Thoroughly recommend.
Dear Jeanette and Peter, Just a note to say how much we all enjoyed ourselves in Sarasota, but what really made the holiday perfect was the stay in your beautiful villa which had all the comforts of home (plus the pool). Thanks again,
Sheila and Keith, Pagham
We have just returned from having a really lovely time staying at your villa, it is in a good location close to beaches, malls & restaurants and is extremely well equipped, catering for all our needs as well as our children's. Thoroughly recommended - thanks again.
Vanessa & Richard Lines, Ringwood, Hampshire
Our stay was beyond our expectations. The villa offered all the luxuries you would have at home and having our own pool for the duration was fantastic. Thank you very much for making our holiday the best we have
The Letts family, Chelmsford, UK
Peter, we want to thank you again for the use of your lovely home in Sarasota! It was comfortable from the moment we walked in to the end of our stay! The pool is great and the house had everything we needed and then some. We love Siesta Key Beach and thank you for the other recommendations around the area!
Again, thank you for a wonderful vacation, it couldn't have been better!
David & Teri Holmes, Illinois, US
Having just returned from a wonderful holiday in your villa in Sarasota, Florida, we just wanted to thank you for providing us with such a clean, comfortable and well equipped home. The villa was everything we had hoped for and more. We particularly enjoyed the swimming pool and outdoor BBQ's!
We were really surprised how many supermarkets, shopping malls and wonderful beaches were on the doorstep. We would also like to thank you for providing such an efficient service and for all the useful information we found on our arrival. We hope to visit Sarasota again very soon.
Anne Williams, London
Had a holiday to remember in your well equipped villa.
Very well located, plenty to do - Definitely saving for the next visit.
Josephine Waiton, London, England
A really relaxing holiday in a lovely quiet area, great evenings around the pool not pestered by insects. An ideal base for exploring this part of Florida but still close enough to the "tourist" bits around Orlando etc.
Derek & Cherry, Surrey, England
Peter, we had an excellent holiday at your villa. The pool is great and we have some pleasant memories of our stay.
Had a wonderful two weeks holiday at your beautiful villa. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will definitely return next year. You have thought of everything.
Christine O'Brien, North Yorkshire
We really enjoyed our two week stay in your delightful villa. Everything was more than promised or expected. Congratulations with a four star rating.
Marilyn & Barrie, Jersey
Lovely home, one of my best holidays I have ever had, house very well equipped and clean. We will definitely be going back.
A very clean and extremely well equipped villa located in a quiet residential area of Sarasota. Ideally placed for the Interstate and Gulf Beaches.
A lovely and relaxing holiday - the solar heated pool is superb.
David & Janice Dunn, Burnley, England
We have been staying in Sarasota since 1992 and our stay in Mr Sait's villa has been one of the most enjoyable. The accommodation is fitted out to a high standard and is ideally situated for local beaches, shops and restaurants.
Colin Carter, Liverpool
Our family had a great time in Sarasota. There is so much to see and do in the area and we enjoyed returning to your lovely villa to relax at the end of the day.
The villa was excellent, sited in a very nice area, very secluded and close to many attractions. We would certainly book again.
Ian Smith, Crawley, Sussex
Lovely villa, very well equipped, beautifully decorated and very clean. Enjoyed the week relaxing round the pool and exploring the beautiful beaches close by.
Sara Staker, Reading, Berks
The villa was everything we wanted to provide a wonderful holiday. Peter and Jeanette went out of their way to provide a wonderful service. All in all a great holiday.
