Great place
Perfect spot for 2 or less to enjoy all that downtown Sarasota has to offer.

5/5 Excellent

Staying in Sarasota
The carriage house is a great place to stay at if you're coming to Sarsota. It's perfect for 2 people, clean and very comfortable. The place is close to downtown Sarasota, you can walk to many of the attractions. Stephanie provides her guests with a kayak you can take out, bikes if you'd like to ride around the area. Stephanie checks in with you through text to make sure you have everything you need. My daughter and I loved staying here. It was a home away from home.

5/5 Excellent

Perfect location
We loved staying in the carriage house! It was a perfect location from which to walk to great restaurants, bars, the harbor, or just to stroll around the neighborhood. The beautiful beaches were within a 20-30 minute drive. Beach chairs and beach towels were provided for us, another plus. Didn’t get to use the bikes, but we got our exercise walking everywhere, every day. The owner was great to communicate with. She made sure we had everything we needed. Really appreciated the welcome basket and the coffee and creamers. Having a washer and dryer right in the closet was a big plus. The apartment was perfect for a short stay. The bed was super comfortable, and the sheets were so luxurious. We fell in love with Sarasota, and will be back.

5/5 Excellent

Everything just right! Charming owners, excellent communication, great location just what I wanted.

5/5 Excellent

Lovely vacation spot in Sarasota
Great location in Sarasota - one can walk everywhere in downtown Sarasota. The pictures are accurate. It is a spotless and well maintained remodeled top floor of a carriage house and has everything one or two people need - well stocked kitchen, comfortable bed, nice linens and an outdoor space with a table and chairs on a patio. Stephanie is delightful and communicated very well with any questions we had. We would stay here again when we are in Sarasota. Thank you, Stephanie for a wonderful week in Laurel Park!!
