Welcome

Nestled in Paradise...

Our home sits peacefully in a nature preserve in beautiful Sarasota, FL. Tucked away in a private, gated community you will be treated to deer resting in the backyard, sand hill cranes stopping traffic as they guide their young across the street to one of two lakes you can see from the property.  Enjoy sitting by the pool while your favorite dish is grilling. Stroll through the sun drenched private park on the lake just across the street or take a 1 mile casual walk beneath the Spanish Moss draped oak trees covering portions of the neighborhood streets. This is a paradise for the weary soul!

 

This one of a kind community is minutes away from shopping and restaurants and less than 10 miles from the # 1 rated beach in North America - Siesta Key, which is famous for its sugar white quartzite sand. Walk along the beach and you may see leopard rays seeking shellfish in the shallows or dolphins playing in the tropical waters just a few meters from shore. If high end shopping is your interest, you are 20 minutes from world famous St. Armands Circle, home to many boutiques, art galleries and fine dining establishments. Downtown you will find the Van Wezel Performing Arts Center, the Ringling Art Museum and a wealth of eclectic art studios on Main Street. The welcoming farmers market serves up local produce in multiple locations on weekends to satisfy your culinary delights.

 

Our photo section features several pictures of our home for you to get an idea of the gem like setting our home is in. Be sure to select inside, outside or pool area. UPDATE: WATCH OUR VIDEOS HERE 

Caressed by the sun - Cooled by the lakes...

Walk outside the front door, cross the street and enjoy the cool afternoon breezes that blow gently upon your face with the scent of a fresh water lake. Fishing here is great, but only for residents and guests of the community. Plenty of Bass and Talapia for the taking. If you don't get them, the Pelicans might. 

 

This picture is one of many taken as the setting sun bids farewell for the night, making room for the stars to put on a show for free at night! There are benches along the way for sweet contemplation and a gazebo in the middle of this private park where you can visit with friends.

 

If golf is your game, you're in the right place!

Tree-lined fairways of towering mature oaks, expansive meticulously kept greens, and miles of lakes and streams create a unique and tranquil setting for first-class, championship golf. Every effort has been made to retain the property's natural beauty, where birds and wildlife abound. This unspoiled terrain creates the feeling of a long established northern course. The par 72 championship course provides a thorough test for the exacting golfer, as well as forgiving those with higher handicaps. When you rent our home, you are entitled to play the Bent Tree Country Club for a modest green fee.
