Accommodating and Relaxing

by Dr. Malcom And Marcia on 05/31/2018
My husband and I visited Sarasota and stayed in UP13 in February of this year (2018). We were so happy we had found such a perfect spot to vacation in Sarasota. It looked just as beautiful and open and airy in person as it did in the listing. All of the décor and furnishings were very nicely done and seemed brand new, which can be quite rare. I especially liked the oyster chandelier in the dining area. We just really felt like we were on vacation there. The master bedroom, bathroom and closet were spacious and comfortable. I was personally appreciative of the fully stocked kitchen, which you don't always find in a vacation rental, and was able to prepare breakfast, lunch and dinner with ease. Our favorite part of the house was the outdoor space – it was so accommodating and relaxing. We ate breakfast at the table in the lanai every morning and enjoyed reading by the pool. The little lake behind the house really added ambiance and a breeze to our time outside as well. Another benefit of staying here was the location of the University Park community itself. It is located right across the street from a sizeable shopping center with anything you could ever need while on vacation – grocery stores, pharmacies, a wonderful variety of bars and restaurants, frozen yogurt, etc.

Loved the home!

We loved the property which we rented through Gulf Coast Vacation Rentals. It wasn't as clean as we would have liked when we arrived, but this was soon taken care of. Property could do with a bit of tlc, and a fan on the patio would be nice, but we had a great time - loved the wildlife on the lake and can't wait to come back.

Fantastic Home

by Roderick on 12/12/2017
We had 11 people in our party and stayed in a 5 bedroom home with a pool only 10 min away from the beaches of Anna Maria Island. The home was fantastic. It was well furnished, the decor was great and very "homie". There were a few issues but the staff was very accommodating and handled them very quickly. We will be renting another villa from Gulf Coast Rentals for our next vacation to the area.

Awesome Time!

We visited Florida - Bradenton area for the first time this summer after finding the rental property listed online. Nat and Jonelle were great and helpful throughout the planning and visit. The home was amazing, the kids had a blast in the pool. The home beyond accommodated our 8 guest, plenty of space throughout. The location was perfect, Anna Maria island/Holmes beach is about ten minutes away. Shopping and plenty of restaurants/shopping are within minutes of the property we rented. We had a great time and the rental was perfect for our stay.
