The location of the cottage is beautiful. It feels very secluded while allowing easy access to beaches and restaurants. We had a few issues, some of which were (sort of) resolved quickly. The deadbolt lock on the front door is difficult to use and the sliding doors did not lock initially. Bridget did send someone to assist us with locking the sliding doors but we could not unlock them again during our stay. I would recommend doing laundry off site. The laundry is located around the back of the house and does not have a light. We had an issue with the dryer not heating. Bridget was very quick in having the dryer switched to a different dryer however the replacement did not work either. We were under the impression we would be instructed how to transport the kayaks but we were not. We were able to figure it out and very much enjoyed our day with the kayaks. The grilling area looked nice however the grill was VERY DIRTY. We did not utilize the area during our stay. The air conditioning works well and the bed was very comfortable. The cottage smelled clean during our entire stay. I enjoyed the skylights. The kitchen was well stocked, functional and the sink is beautiful. Based on other reviews my expectations were high and this experience fell short. I don't think I will be utilizing Air B&B in the future.

Way better than staying in a hotel for sure and the tempura pedic beds were SO comfy. Bridget is very accommodating and helpful. A great place to stay. It's close to lots of cool places and it's also hidden away from the main Street. Very private.

Bridget's cabin is cozy has a really great location! It was an easy drive to Siesta Key and Lido where there are beaches, restaurants, and kayaking. The provided breakfast and welcome basket were really convenient saved us from having to spend as much time shopping. Communication was easy and Bridget was very nice! I would definitely stay here again!

This lovely cottage was clean and cool which made it a perfect retreat. Close to beaches and shops we were close to everything. The skylights make the cottage a unique experience. We will definitely be back!

Bridget User ProfileBridget is a superhost.

I'm a native New Yorker, who's fallen in love with the lessor-known beauty hidden in Florida's old world neighborhoods. I live passionately in a 4 story, architecturally inspiring home I've name the "Treehouse." Behind my home on a private lot, lies the cottage. You may not see us on a post card for Sarasota, but with mature oak-lined streets and tropical foliage shading us as we sit outside in solitude on a warm and sunny should.

I run a small student rental company, so I know the local community very well. I've lived here for over 10 years and enjoyed every minute! I also enjoy meditation, latin ballroom dancing and my two 6 month old puppies, Aura and Khan.

I have just recently become a member of Airbnb, so stay tuned for references and reviews :)
