"Excellent place for a family vacation!"

by Dmitriy


We had a great time staying here with our family of six! Pool was a huge plus when kids were done with the beach and wanted to hang out at ‘home’. It had plenty of space and amenities that we needed for our week plus stay. 15 min drive to Siesta Key and proximity to everything else in Sarasota was great.


by Jamie


We loved the house and will try and book again next time we come down!

"Nice n Relaxing"

"Review of 2689 Novus Place, Sarasota, FL"

by Kathy I.


All in all, we were happy with our rental. The pool was awesome. Rental was clean. Plenty of supplies and towels. All appliances worked well, except the garbage disposal sounded like something was in it, such as metal. Therefore, we didn't use it. The pool cleaning people were supposed to come on Thursday, April 6, but they never showed up during our visit. We would definately use VRBO again.

Our stay at Clara's place was a blast. We had a lot of fun and spent a lot of time by the pool. The description of the placed was accurate. Being close to Downtown meant we tried a lot of different foods with a 20 min drive to Siesta beach. The greatest part of the trip was communication. Whenever I had a question, I received a quick response. Highly recommend staying at 2689 Novus Pl.

My wife and I go to Sarasota every year for Thanksgiving. This was our first time using this property. Great location central to everything you want to do, nice pool, very very quiet neighborhood really enjoyed our stay.

"Ideal for family, clean and well-maintained!"

by Freida


My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this well-maintained, clean, fully stocked property. The pool and Jacuzzi were warm and great. The property manager, Clara, was terrific in responding to any questions we had. Although there were only 2 of us, this house is ideal for a family, with 3 nice size bedrooms and 2 full bathrooms. Definitely recommend.

Comfortable house, exactly as described, well equipped, lovely back yard and pool. Quiet place, peaceful neighborhood. And Clara was very resourceful and quick to answer to our needs. Definitely recommend.

Beautiful very clean home. The pool is fabulous but the hot tub isn’t fabulous. The two are tied together and the pool gets too hot if you try to keep the hot tub hot. We would heat up the hot tub and then cut system off so the pool wouldn’t heat up too much. Our host Clara was very quick to respond to any requests. The neighborhood is very nice and it’s on a dead end street so very little traffic. Drive to the beach is short. Shopping and restaurants are close.

Better than the description. Pool was clean and refreshing. Has heating capability too.
Screened in patio is great! No bugs.
Pine trees add a peaceful quietness.
House was clean and well stocked in kitchen. Comfy beds and sofa. Nice dining area in “sunroom”.
Only note: There is a hole in the exterior wooden fence, large enough for a pet to get out (and critters to get in). Backyard has bike trail behind it. Owner has been informed and should be fixing it. Just check beforehand. Don’t want your furry friend to find an “escape”. :o)

"Best vacation"

Smoothest rental process and overall experience we have it in years, maybe ever. Would definitely stay again.

Clara was a wonderful host— VERY responsive and available when we had questions.
Would stay there again in a heartbeat!

"I would definitely recommend!"

by James


My wife and I both work remote so we rented this house for the month of March. The house was just as advertised. We had all the cooking utensils we could have needed. The best part was the very private backyard with hot tub and heated pool. I must also point out that Clara was a wonderful hostess. She was very attentive to all our needs. I would definitely recommend!

"Great experience!"

by April


Great experience. The house was clean and had all the necessities to be comfortable. The swimming pool in the backyard was perfect for our family. The house is a great location to travel to several different beaches and isn't far from downtown Sarasota.

The place is exactly as advertised. The host is very helpful. The pool is enclosed and the yard is very private. The neighborhood is quiet and not too far from beaches & restaurants.

Good value.

"Airbnb Review #763736387 #109929"

by Review from Airbnb Guest #109929


Clara communicates fast and answers all questions, even with Facetime! The house itself is older and is overpriced for the stay. AC cannot be above 73 degrees, has a few bug issues, and many of the chairs are not stable to sit on. The pool is older and has some age to it in photos and cannot be cooled, so it takes the temperature of the spa. Overall though, it was in a great location in a nice neighborhood. Only 10 minutes from Downtown Sarasota!

Once you are out of toiletries you have to buy your own the air bnb workers don’t provide more after there gone. the inner pot for the crockpot is missing and the washer Machine is really unleveled and makes a really loud noise

"This house was the perfect winter beach stay"

by Lenna


This house was the perfect winter beach stay. The Lido beach is about a 15 minute drive and Siesta Key is about 20. Neither were particularly walkable but the Publix (grocery store) was just down the street. The pool is heated with a hot tub so on days where it was too cold for the beach we could just chill at the house. We did have a few issues with the pool but Clara was ready to respond and help. Some supplies were a little low (dishwasher soap, cleaning products, toilet paper, etc) but it didn’t cause too much of an issue. For 6 students on a budget, we got everything we needed.

"The house had everything we needed"

by Ben


We loved the pool and hot tub, and the location was great! Only 10-15 minutes from the nearest beaches. The house had everything we needed, and the kitchen had plenty of room to cook our meals. The house was clean and organized, very important for Covid times.

"Close to downtown"

by Simon


We enjoyed being close to downtown Sarasota and the pool was awesome too

"New Review"

by Brian


Very clean, and well maintained house. The neighbors were polite and the neighborhood was safe and quiet. Beach chairs and an umbrella were available for use.

"Excellent stay"

by Andrew


Our family stayed here and April and had a fantastic stay. The property itself is in close proximity to everything and located on a very quiet street The pool in the backyard worked out perfect for our kids. There was plenty of room for all of us. The management company was extremely helpful and accommodating, especially Clara. We would stay here again without hesitation and strongly recommend staying here.


by Laurie


The house was absolutely perfect for us! The pool was great, location was fabulous, and the weather was sunny! Definitely recommend this house - especially for families who love to swim.

"Had a blast"

by Donna


Great place to stay enjoyed coffee by the pool each morning

"Great stay!"

by Rhonda


It was very home they had everything we need.. would stay again for sure.. also very close to everything!

"Family Summer Vacation"

by Raul


Great place conveniently located at 15 minutes to Siesta Key,Lido Key.The only thing that would have been better was for Alberto storm to choose a different path,but we were still able to enjoy the beach for some days.

"Very nice !!!"

by Torsten


After a short while we feel at home. Nothing more to say...

"This was a great place to stay"

by Janice


This was a great place to stay. Everything was very clean and we loved the pool. The neighbors were very nice and the neighborhood was quiet. Marie was very helpful.

"Review from Marcus"

by Marcus, Fredericksburg, OH


Maria is awesome to deal with. The house is nice and neat ... Nice and quiet neighborhood. Only rental on the street.

"Review from Mprivara"

by Mprivara, Sarasota, FL


We thoroughly enjoyed our week-long stay here. The definite highlight was the pool and patio area. We used the pool every single day and it stayed at a wonderful 85+ degrees! Unfortunately the hot tub didn't work. The place is very spacious and you really could make it your home for the week. We appreciated the house being stocked with the basics (toilet paper, paper towels, laundry detergent, soap, etc). We had a baby with us and the owner purchased a pack n play just for us which was a wonderful gesture. There are some items for the beach (chairs, umbrella, floaties, sand toys). A few things that made a bad first impression included a hole in the screen, paint peeling off the bathtub and a corroding bbq which rendered it unusable. I'd say the positives far out-weighed the negatives and would recommend the house for those looking for something in a decent location and not ridiculously expensive!

"Great Place "

We have enjoyed our stay there and the owners were very accommodating. Will be sure to book it the next time we are in the area.
