It is also a short bike ride or walk to St. Armand's Circle and all the shops, restaurants, and nightlife it has to offer. If you aren't familiar with St. Armand's Circle, well, you're in for a treat because this area is a very well known and high end commercial retail and restaurant area. It is filled with boutiques, restaurants, dessert shops, and nightlife. This is a renowned area and people come from all over to walk the circle, take in the sights and sounds, and enjoy the many offerings of this area. However, you'll be able to walk or bike there and not worry about driving or parking your car, so you can truly enjoy your vacation without concern for the details. If you want even more offerings, Downtown Sarasota is only 2.5 miles from this home, and you can find an even larger supply of retail, restaurants, nightlife, concert halls, comedy venues and more. You can catch a movie, a play or performance at the Sarasota Van Wezel, or just walk down Main Street and pop in and out of dozens and dozens of shops and stores. It is about a $10-15 Uber to downtown - so again, no need to worry about transportation, everything is right there at your fingertips. The home is very short drive or nice bike ride to City Island, where your family can enjoy a day at Mote Marine Laboratory, where you can enjoy the large aquariums, education centers, and aquatic "petting zoos" for an up close and personal nautical experience.

    Amazing Stay at this Mini Resort

    By: Trip Date: 09/19/2021

    We enjoyed our week immensely at this mini 5 star resort. Everything was so close by and there were bikes provided so we could go out for starbucks and be back in the air-conditioning in less than 5 minutes! The pool was perfect and the backyard loungers were always in use. And the TV in every room was nice as we were a large family with lots of different viewing interests. 🙂 Wonderful stay, beautiful property, will definitely be back!!

    St Armand Circle in October

    By: Trip Date: 10/09/2021

    Amazing property, location was perfect, beach was clean and the water was beautiful!! We will definitely go back to this location. The house had the room needed for 9 of us, the pool was perfect and the neighborhood was quiet. Andrew’s communication with checking in was stellar. St Armand Circle is a very laid back town with nice shops and we only had to travel less than 10 minutes to go grocery shopping. One of the best vacations we have ever had.
