This was our first time using Airbnb, I was a bit worried about it since I have not met anybody that uses this company, then I continued doing more research and found Mary Helen. I was so excited she accepted us, she was so easy to communicate with. When we spoke on the phone for the first time I felt like I had known her forever. When we arrived to the home it was breathtaking, and she was very kind and sweet, she made us feel like we were family. Her place was very clean and beautiful, Mary had the house completely equipped for us with everything necessary for everyday use. We were able to create beautiful memories with our family. The beaches around that area are indescribably beautiful. Thank you again.

WHAT A HOSTESS! This home is an older craftsman-style cottage that has been updated but maintains many of the original (or updated-but-vintage) special touches. The living area is very comfortable and larger than it appears in the photos as it "blends" with a large entryway and the dining room. The sleeping areas are well-sized, as well, and the full bathroom is HUGE! The backyard is fully fenced in and has space for grilling, eating out and games all at the same time. The porch has fun beach decor and a soothing water fountain for relaxing after a day in the sun! The kitchen is galley-style but fully functional if you want to prepare your own meals instead of going out! The home was very clean, had some great vintage furniture and decor pieces, and was laid out simply so that you have room to spread out and enjoy it. We stayed in this home with two adults and two children (ages 8 & 12) who loved the open space of the living area for game/movie night. The yard was fun for them to chase geckos, as well! They also loved that they could walk to the bay to wade in the water and to watch the glorious sunsets. Jungle Gardens is LITERALLY across the street and has been a favorite of our family's visits for (URL HIDDEN) the kids loved that we could walk over to that as well. From this home you could walk easily to a Walgreens, CVS or Wal-Mart grocery store (just two blocks away) in case you need anything that you forgot. YOU WON'T HAVE TO, THOUGH! The host, Mary Helen, is amazing! Her communication was amazing and she provided a lot really special touches! We got a bottle of sparkling cider in the fridge to celebrate with our boys (which they LOVED)! She also had some basic kitchen ingredients, provided laundry detergent, and had brand-new toiletries ready-to-go in the bathroom in case we needed anything. Mary Helen provided so many special touches for us and our family that we feel like we are her family now, too! Her hospitality will make the difference between this home and others in the area!

Thank you for your incredible hospitality and admirable generosity. You were like a mother and a friend to us. Your house was perfect and beautiful. There was nothing that could have measured up to this place. You really went the extra mile with everything you've provided for us. You made sure our spring break was the best it could have been. You are the BEST! We appreciate everything you have done for us, and would love to visit again!

We had a wonderful time in Sarasota, at the cottage by the bay! The location to the water activities, shopping, golf course, fishing, & the sunsets is perfect. We really enjoyed having a grill to our catch for the day, we felt so at home. Mary Helen was very accommodating & welcoming. We will recommend this cottage to our friends and family. And look forward to returning there again in the near future. Thank you so much Mary Beth And Mary Helen!
