Great location
100% of recent guests gave the location a 5-star rating.
The Hudson Bayou is one of the most sought after quiet, tree-lined downtown Sarasota neighborhoods within walking/biking distance of City amenities and excitement; the #1 US beaches, bay front, restaurants, shops, rooftop bars, parks, tennis, movies, Nationally-recognized museums, Selby Botanical Gardens and more. Our 2 room, 1 bath in-law Suite and garden patio is a private space on the ground floor of a quaint cottage home with a separate entrance and a locked divider door to the main home.

The space
NOTE: The City of Sarasota mandates a 6 night minimum rental so we are not permitted to offer shorter stays.

We are a quiet professional couple in our mid 40s without children and two dogs (foxhound and chihuahua). We LOVE Sarasota and are happy to provide any local insights. We live on property full time in the main cottage home and one of us works from home full time (separate private pool house office on property). We are private and keep busy but are available if needed. We provide a binder that includes information on how to operate all appliances, and fun places to visit.

The Suite is fully attached to the main cottage home but there is a set of locked doors dividing the main home from the suite (similar to an adjoining hotel room door), and a separate outside entrance with an electronic entry keypad. The Suite is designed to have all of the comforts of home and is most similar to an in-law suite attached to a home with a private entrance.

The Suite is suitable for one person or a couple though there are two options for sleeping; one queen bed and one pull out couch in the main living area. The bathroom features a vanity, tub/shower combo. The main living area features a pull out couch, cafe table for two, fully stocked kitchen (no stove), with a 3-1 cooker (microwave, oven, fryer), crockpot, induction cooktop (2 burners), full size refrigerator and sink, dinnerware settings (x4), a coffee maker/french press/Keurig one cup, toaster, hot water kettle, serving dishes, silverware, blender, etc. There is also a high efficiency stack washer/dryer unit in the hallway for your exclusive use.

We also have a fully stocked kitchen on our side of the home so if there's something that you need and don't see, just ask and we'll bring it over. Sheets, towels (beach and bath), and blankets are provided for your stay and there's a washer/dryer in the Suite (dedicated to the Suite). An initial supply of shampoo, soap, toilet paper, paper towels, K-cups, garbage bags and cleaning products are provided for your use. However, beyond the initial supply, you will be responsible for supplying these items throughout your stay.

There is a large yard, and a portion of the yard outside of the Suite is dedicated for guest use complete with a patio table/chairs, umbrella and gas grill. We are very respectful of the private areas and expect the same of our guests.

We are happy to provide beach chairs, small umbrella, a cooler, etc. should you wish to go to the beach.

Our neighborhood is quiet, picturesque and perfect for long walks. You'll likely see a lot of friendly neighbors and dogs.

Where you’ll be

Sarasota, Florida, United States

We absolutely love our neighborhood given the conveniences, the close proximity to the waterfront, the friendly neighbors, #1 US beaches, downtown, parks, shops and restaurants. We are in walking distance to Selby Gardens, the Bayfront park, Southside Village, Burns Court, O'Leary's Tiki Hut (casual tiki hut setting on the water with music and food/drink), Marina Jacks (marina and restaurant), and several downtown hot spots for food, music and drinks. We are 4 miles from Lido Beach and Siesta Key Beach (a fairly easy bike ride). There's a beautiful waterfront walk from our house to St. Armands Circle (over the Ringling Bridge), where more shops, restaurants and spas abound. We are also walking or biking distance to the Ritz Carlton for dining on the Bay and their luxury spa. We are happy to provide our recommendations via a binder found in the Suite or you can reach out to us anytime.
