My house is on a quiet street in a safe, residential neighborhood. The emphasis here is on independence. You will reside in a master bedroom suite with a private bath and private entrance. Enjoy the adjoining lanai, a hot tub, and hammock in the back yard. Outside your door is an adjoining laundry room. A second door separates your quarters from the rest of the house. All doors are locking. No breakfast served, but coffee, cream, a coffee maker, microwave, toaster and mini fridge are provided.

The space

A large room includes two fans and an air conditioning unit. Adjust to your own comfort level. Outside the room is a lanai and outside the lanai is a closed-in backyard which provides a nice space for your pet, and it's also a shady and comfortable spot to enjoy anytime of the day or night.

Guest access

The bedroom and private bath is your exclusive space. Common spaces are the lanai and the backyard. The jacuzzi is in the lanai, and can be used in total privacy by pulling down the shades on the french doors.
While I may occasionally offer you use of the kitchen and living room areas, these areas are generally my private space, so please don't expect cooking facilities. However the guest room is equipped with a microwave, a toaster over, coffee makers, and a mini fridge.

Interaction with guests

I've been living in Sarasota for a couple of years, so let me know if you have any questions about things to do, places to visit, etc.

Other things to note

There is a large walk-in closet where you can store lots of stuff. There are a couple of boogie boards that you are welcome to use at the beach. Ask for access to the garage where I have extra bikes, helmets, and a bike mount which allows you to take them with you on a day's outing. If you play tennis, leave your racket at home. Use the very decent ones here instead. Also, an air mattress and futon are available if needed.

Martin was an especially kind and considerate host. He really cares about making your stay as comfortable as possible. His description and pictures are very accurate however, I don't feel they do the space justice (it's quite large and you get a lot for your money here.) The portable AC unit (which is NOT the same as a window unit) is the best and quietest you can buy plus, it has an option to pull moisture from the air as well. His backyard and lanai where the hot tub are have a relaxing tropical feel. He's open to suggestions and genuinely wants to provide the best experience possible for his guests. I felt completely safe travelling as a single woman staying at his place and recommend him as a host. "Your hospitality was very much appreciated Martin, thank you!" :)

Martin's place is perfect if you are looking for privacy and a room that is so comfortable with all the necessities ....The backyard where you enter was so tropical with a hammock and a jacuzzi.....Martin made sure to supply any needs. Very kind and thoughtful but made sure to give you your privacy..when we do return to the area I will check his place out first to book. Perfect for a couple who wants a quite cozy place to stay.

Marty ist ein perfekter Gastgeber. Die Kontaktaufnahme war jederzeit problemlos. Seine ruhige und sehr nette Art hat uns gleich ein gutes Gefühl gegeben. Man genießt vollstes Vertrauen und hat zu 100% Privatsphäre, aber bei Fragen immer einen Ansprechpartner. Wir werden auf jeden Fall wieder kommen.

I worked in the software industry in Boston for most of my career, and then retired and moved down to Sarasota in 2014. These days I play tennis, bike, swim, and do quite a bit of volunteer work. I'm also an avid go player, which is a Chinese board game.
