The Gulf waters are a perfect mix of crystal blue & green. Grab a beach towel, beach umbrella & chairs to head to Crescent Beach for a day of swimming in the Gulf, picking up sea shells, throwing out a cast, or building sand castles with the little ones! Most of whatever you like, you'll find it here.

Walk into the bright and bold spacious living room with a large new flat screen TV for streaming. Cable & WiFi are included. Off the the side is a small table with 2 chairs where you can play games with the little ones. To the right is the 3rd twin bedroom and parlor area.

The KITCHEN is updated with gray quartz counters, white appliances and stocked with dishes, glasses and basic appliances such as the all important coffee maker, mixer, blender etc plus a bar height cafe table for 2. Access to the garage and laundry room is off the kitchen. In the bay window sits a glass cafe table & 4 yellow chairs with great views of the swimming pool and greenery. Off the kitchen is a large dining table for 6 with wide open views of the pool. In fact the entire wall from right to left is wide open views of the screened pool & patio. Makes it quite easy to keep a watchful eye on the gang especially the little ones who love to swim!

Enjoy your private pool. There's a BBQ grill at the far end and other end has a round table with an umbrella for a bit of shade. Relax on the loungers with your favorite afternoon cocktail until it's time to grill the steaks.

I-Trip Vacation at 6505 Colonial Dr. - Sarasota

5/5 stars

We had an amazing vacation at this spot in Sarasota. Location was the best - 1.5 miles over the Stickney Point bridge to Siesta Key! Many restaurants, shops and a Publix a-- all within walking distance too. The house was perfect for our needs with 3 bedrooms, 2 baths and large kitchen, sparkling pool and 2 dining areas. Everything was perfect including all communications from property management company and response time for one minor issue with outside flood lights was amazing. Thanks for a wonderful vacation. We will be back next year for sure!


Great Home with a Big Pool
