About this listing

The Parrot's Perch is an adorable one bedroom apartment on Historic 7th Street in Downtown Sarasota, Walk to Main Street, Farmer's Market. Completely remodeled apartment located in a large historic house with deck under giant oak tree.

The space

The parrot's perch is a great little apartment that has been completely remodeled with a new kitchen featuring a breakfast bar with quartz countertops, farmer's sink and beadboard trim. A 32" tv with DVD player, queen size beautyrest bed, all new furniture and new bathroom make your stay very comfortable.

Guest access

Guests will have access to a private deck, and the "outhouse" Laundromat, a funny little shack which we have salvaged and put coin operated machines into.

Interaction with guests

Guests have instant access to the apartment via an electronic door lock set to the last four digits of their telephone number-no need to stress about arrival times. We live next door, and are available via cell phone. We will generally stop by to say hi, and introduce ourselves, but try to give our guests full privacy, unless we can help in any way. A large basket with maps and brochures is available in the apartment to help explore the area.

Andrea's place was amazingly cute, clean, cozy and roomy. My girlfriend and I were there four days and loved every minute. We stayed in the Parrot's Perch house, FYI. We were delighted to find many city guides, a bottle of wine waiting, a clean, comfy, cozy and contemporary kitchen, living, bedroom and bathroom. My GF is always super sensitive to smells (like, dust, mold, mildew, stale sheets, etc.) and I am happy to report that at Parrot's Perch everything was fresh and clean smelling with no trace of anything untoward. Close proximity to everything, lots of food and drinks to be had within a short walk or a fast and cheap Uber. Thanks, Andrea for the stay! Lindy & Eric

We had a great stay here in Sarasota! Andrea confirmed our booking quickly and immediately sent over lots of info about the home, how to access it and local recommendations. She offered us the use of their beach equipment too, which was really nice. Home was very clean and well stocked. Thanks again for the stay!

Everything was great! The apartment is really cute and we loved the relaxing and private outdoor area off the back. It was also so nice that there were beach chairs, towels, and umbrellas available so we were prepared for beach days. Although we had a car, we ended up walking to and from downtown quite a bit. Check in/out was also super easy. We would absolutely stay here again.

Great place to stay and the host was very friendly and helpful. Lots of things I wasn't expecting but were available - beach towels and toys, access to laundry machine, parking, sitting area in the back. There was a binder in the kitchen with information about everything one would want to know about the area. I would highly recommend staying here!!

This was a house split into different units. We had a small one bedroom unit, which was too small for the amount of time we stayed ( one month). Full kitchen ( no dishwasher), counter seating, cute living room and cute bedroom. Small porch in front of unit with table, chairs and shade umbrella. Bathroom very small with pocket door. Short walk to downtown, although the other properties along the alley where you park are generally in poor shape. There is some gentrification going on, however, and the area seems to have remodeling, new building, etc. taking place. This is the first time we rented such a small place. We usually rent entire homes and don't pay a higher price than what this cost us. Hosts were extremely nice and helpful. They are working to expand their visitor facilities and the fenced in property is very nice. Recommend for 1-2 people for short stays.

We had a great time staying here. Andrea and Mike were lovely hosts and offered both friendship and complete privacy. We were invited to their Christmas party with the neighbors. We brought our bikes so we could get around like locals. Mike biked with us over to the Ringling Museum and showed us some cool neighborhoods on route.

The Parrots Perch is a perfect cozy apartment for 1-2 people, its beachy tropical atmosphere prepares you just right for Sarasota and its beaches which are only a 10 min drive away. Downtown is in walking distance, so you could go to a bar or do some shopping all by foot. At the same time, the apartment is very quiet and private, Andrea and her husband are amazing hosts, extremely friendly, helpful and inviting. There's no better place to stay in Sarasota.

Andrea User ProfileAndrea is a superhost.

I am a graduate of the Cornell University School of Hotel Administration. I am passionate about revitalizing Downtown Sarasota and the historic Gillespie Park Neighborhood where I have lived and worked for 15 years. I am also working to get the Legacy Multi Use Recreational Trail extended into Downtown Sarasota. My husband and I live with our spoiled rotten Vizlsa named Lucy. We love to walk Lucy and ride our bikes (including our antique Santana Tandem bike named Lulu) into downtown, out to the beach, at various bike and tandem rallies.
