Property Details

Centrally located in the heart of Sarasota, and only minutes away from our world famous Siesta Key Beach, Villa Espanola offers a bright and cheerful retreat with a heated swimming pool and a privately fenced backyard. Perfect for larger families that enjoy the peaceful serenity of their own private garden and pool area, who love the closeness to not only Siesta Key, but the nightlife of Southside Business District and Downtown Sarasota.

Villa Espanola is a three (3) bedroom, two (2) bath private home that features a huge screened-in lanai which opens out from the main living area. It is configured for maximum comfort and enjoyment for large families and parties who will find it colorful and adorned with original oil paintings and art work.

Transform the already expansive living area into an even larger space by opening our stacking sliders and inviting the outdoors in… Or settle in for comfy cozy TV time with the family and friends with ample and comfortable seating, HDTV with hundreds of movie channels at the tips of your fingers.

The nearby kitchen is a gourmet’s delight filled with granite tops and stainless steel new appliances. Every conceivable cooking gadget is there allowing you to enjoy anything from a quiet lunch together to preparing a feast for eight! And the kitchen is open to the family areas so the chef can still enjoy socializing with the whole group while cooking! You’ll love the kitchen and all of its features. Top rated.

When its time to retire to the bedrooms, enjoy the privacy of a split plan, with the oversized master on one side and two bedrooms on the other end. Everyone enjoys their personal space with plush clean bedding, exceptional pillows, HDTV in every room, and space for personal work/play stations. The bathrooms are decadently appointed with new faucets, granite counters, and upscale cabinetry, and they are spotless! Lavish towels are plentifully provided and there are lots of oversized beach towels available as well. We provide all linens as well, which as you might expect, are extremely nice.

Connected to the living room, is the oversized screened-in lanai and an expansive, deep heated swimming pool. Enjoy a 2nd outdoor “living room” area inside the lanai and “belly up” to our authentic German-inspired handmade pub-style bar! With an outdoor refrigerator and lots of available storage, there is room at the bar for hosting a fantastic and fun get together! Two outdoor seating areas can also be enjoyed off to the side of the lanai, providing a perfect deck for sunbathing, and a secondary shady paver area under the oak tree for those who like a cool breeze and a great view of the pool. The backyard is completely fenced providing an extremely private setting, with a beautiful garden area and a cute little pond bursting with goldfish and koi.

We highly recommend a neighborhood walk every morning to get invigorated for the day, but on your way back in, stop in the front yard and pop a few kumquats off the tree to get your daily Vitamin C dose… it’s as powerful as a cup of coffee! The neighborhood is also friendly to bicyclers. Restaurants and bars are just two blocks away and it makes for a nice easy walk. Our posh Westfield Shopping mall is only a mile down the road, a leisure drive around our Tuttle Avenue roundabout and on to Siesta Drive. Enjoy the most perfect steaks ever prepared at Fleming’s Restaurant, just around the corner!

We welcome you to Villa Espanola and look forward to your visit!

Please note the bed configurations: 1 King Bed (sleeps 2), 2 Queen Beds (sleeps 2 in each guest room), 1 Sofa Bed (in living room), and room for two pack n' plays or twin size air mattresses (sleeps 2), should you decide to bring some for extra people and/or little ones in your party!



 
This property has 1 King(s), 1 Pull Out Sofa(s), 2 Queen(s).

Dear Cottages on the Key by Gina Scott 05/01/2018
We would like to thank you for our wonderful stay at your vacation home. This was our first time visiting the gulf coast and we really enjoyed it. The house felt like a relaxing home from the minute we walked in. Thank you for the cupcakes and relaxing music it was a very thoughtful touch. The linens, towels, and bedding were all very nice and I never want to stay in a hotel again with my three boys. We really loved all the amenities, and really couldn’t find a thing that wasn’t there or thought of! I definitely think we will be renting from you again in the future and I’m afraid you have spoiled me from other rentals from here on in! I hope your staff knows how much we appreciated the time and effort that was put into all the little details of the home. We really don’t have a single complaint. We did have a little nuisance complaint

★ ★ ★ ★ ★
Villa Espanola was wonderful! The location is great and the area is very safe. The home was very clean, as was the outside area and pool. (And I am a stickler for clean!). The sofa is brand new and the rugs looked great. It is decked out with full beach decor. I loved the brilliant colors of all the rooms.
There were 6 adults in our party and we had plenty of space. The beds were very comfortable and the towels and linens were all very nice. It was great having the beach chairs, coolers and umbrella for our beach days, and beach towels were supplied as well! We loved our time there and would definitely stay again! We were about 7 miles from the beautiful Siesta Key Beach. The home is in close proximity to everything we did. It has a fully stocked kitchen, and had a washer and dryer with supplied detergent. There is a book on the coffee table with recommendations in the area, which was very helpful. Don't hesitate staying at Villa Espanola....we had a wonderful time!
Villa espanola by Adina A. 05/18/2017
Thank you for sharing your house with us! The house is only 3 stars because it is outdated, and, though some things would require some bigger investment, there a are some things that I was very disappointed that the owner didn't take action sooner. Pros: - location: only 20 mins away from the beach and 20 mins from downtown Sarasota, the theaters, botanical gardens, art museum etc; Cons: - The house was great when it was new on the market. Right now, the showers and the pool show the age, the toilette water pressure was a bit of a challenge and the furniture in the leaving room was so filthy dirty that I couldn't touch it (we covered the couch with bed sheets in order to use it). - Also, the outdoor area would have been more enjoyable if it would have been clean. We tried to wash the patio, but it was too dirty and the area around the pool was in pretty bad shape. All the area rugs, indoors and outdoors, were stained and dirty. - We have been renting with HomeAway for some time now and we are used to make sure you clean before you leave. However, the requirements for doing the towels and the sheets and the warning that if it takes too long for them to do it an extra fee would be applied annoyed me. Overall, the place is OK. I expected a 5 start house based on the description, but I got an outdated not so clean one. I hope this review helps and it will improve the experience for the future guests.
Taking Home Fantastic Memories! by Kim and Robin 12/08/2014
Heather and Eric, We greatly enjoyed our stay here at Villa Espanola. We appreciate how stocked the house was and making available the bikes. We really got to explore the area since we have never been here before. We felt right at home and sad we have to leave. 🙁 But we will be taking back home some great memories. Thank you!
Love the House Decor and Colors! by Kim and Matt 12/08/2014
Heather and Eric, Thank you so much for the wonderful house for our vacation. You made us feel very welcome with the cupcakes! We had everything we needed and then some. The kids had a great time feeding the fish and swimming in the pool. We will be back and will hopefully be able to stay here again. BTW, I love the house decor and colors!
Great house and great owners by Tracey L. 12/01/2013
The house is everything that it is advertised! The house is beautifully decorated and the location is great. It’s a short drive to the beach and within walking distance of many shopping and dining places. The house was fully stocked and the rooms were very comfortable. The best part is the living room and one of the bedrooms open up to the outdoor sitting and pool area. Eric and Heather are such great people. Their hospitality was outstanding. They provided cupcakes on our arrival and they also offered us a boat ride, which was so much fun. We really were able to see Sarasota from a different point of view and we were able to get to know Eric and Heather. My family and I will be staying there again for sure.
Great relaxing home!!! by Linda & Chuck 10/14/2013
From the moment we walked in with relaxing music playing, and a plate full of cupcakes we loved it from the start. Your house is perfectly located to Siesta Key and our new favortie place O'leary's Tiki Hut. We spent the majority of our time relaxing on the lanai and in the pool. The master bedroom was very comfortable and we slept very well. The book you left with all the area information was very helpful and we used it quite a bit to guide us. Meeting you and Eric made it even better. We loved the area so much we actually bought a house while we were there:) Hope to see you again soon. Linda & Chuck
Loved the house by Gry E. 08/15/2013
We loved the house and the warm welcome from Heather and Eric! The house has everything you need and is close to everything. We used the pool all the time if we weren't at the beach. Eric and Heather are very nice and helpful and nothing is a problem. The house is in a calm neighbourhood, was clean and well maintained. We did not want to leave and hope to be back one day!! We can recommend this property to everyone!
Exactly as advertised. A great place for a family by Janice 07/23/2013
A lovely and comfortable well kept home with very helps hosts. We are returning next year, have booked already. Plenty of room for extended family to do a lot or a little.
Everything we wanted for our spring break! by Laurie Z. 04/07/2013
Villa Espanola was everything we hoped it would be! A comfortable place with easy access to everything in the Sarasota area. The kitchen was well stocked, the bedrooms comfortable but the best part was the living area that opened up outside to the screened in pool! We came down for spring break and spent most days at Siesta Key beach but it was wonderful being able to come back after a day at the beach packed with people and jump into our own private pool. Heather and Eric were great hosts. They were always available but never intrusive. They took us out for an afternoon of kayaking and we had a great time! They also were a great resource for places to eat and things to do. We highly recommend staying here!

This is a great home, it has everything you need! by Linda E. 03/24/2013
This is a great home, it has everything you need! The neighborhood is quiet and we loved the pool. You are only minutes from good food, shopping, things to explore and the great beaches of Siesta Key.

The home was very clean and comfortable. The decor is fun and bright, a real Floridian home.

I felt so at home, I didn't want to leave and we are already making plans for next year.

Heather and Eric are the BEST!

We had a wonderful vacation at the Villa Espanola. by Sylvia 02/09/2013
We had a wonderful vacation at the Villa Espanola. The owners, Eric and Heather, couldn't have been more helpful and hospitable. We felt like old friends! The house was as advertised, spotless, well-equipped and comfortable. The beds are excellent. Everything you need for cooking is in the kitchen, and the appliances are very good. The Villa has an exceptionally nice pool just off the lanai which is quite large and deep and well maintained. New gardens have been added which will make the property even more lush. The Villa Espanola is convenient to many shopping malls, Siesta Key, and downtown. We highly recommend this property and will be returning!
This home truly enhanced our vacation experience. by Gail A. 01/31/2013
This home truly enhanced our vacation experience. It is exactly as described and more. My fiance and I enjoyed the open feel of the home with sliding glass doors that open the entire living room onto the patio and screened in pool. We swam everyday, enjoyed the sun and relaxed on the patio. The home is clean, well appointed, decorated nicely and has everything you need. The beds are comfortable and we slept like logs after a day in the pool or out sightseeing.

We would highly recommend this vacation retreat. It is minutes from the beach, wonderful restaurants and shopping. The neighborhood is clean and safe.

The owner was wonderful and accomodating. We had our privacy but she was available if we needed anything.

I did not want to leave. I wish I had booked more time there but we will definately return.

We had a fantastic time !! by Marion K. 01/10/2013
We had a fantastic time !! The property was fantastic, everything you needed and more. A fully equipped kitchen,with every cooking utenzile imaginable, even a library of cookbooks.
The garage came stocked with 4 bikes and helmets for the kids.
The property was well maintained and the pool and Lanai were such a treat and made for great relaxing days in the sun.
Heather and Eric were such fantastic hosts, and made us feel like family. Right from day one with a wonderful decorated platter of cupcakes to an afternoon boat ride.
The customer service was exceptional . We had a problem with our door knob on the bedroom door and they came right away and had it fixed. Great people to work with , will defiantly be back and rent from them again.

This is the first time I have ever rented a property while vacationing. by Patricia I. 11/30/2012
This is the first time I have ever rented a property while vacationing. The owner, Heather, is amazing! She is so hospitable that I felt I had known her for years! The house has everything you could possibly think of. The beds were so comfy! We felt very safe in the neighborhood. You must try out Der Dutchman restaurant and visit the Yoder market which are very close. This was such a great location too. You are really in the heart of Sarasota. The pool was awesome too! I would recommend this particular Villa to anyone looking to stay in this area. You won't be disappointed!!
Wir (Pärchen Mitte 40) verbrachten im Zuge einer Florida-Reise eine Woche in der geräumigen, modernen, mit viel Liebe eingerichteten und perfekt ausgestatteten Villa von Heather und Eric. by Boy C. 10/07/2012
Wir (Pärchen Mitte 40) verbrachten im Zuge einer Florida-Reise eine Woche in der geräumigen, modernen, mit viel Liebe eingerichteten und perfekt ausgestatteten Villa von Heather und Eric. Wir haben uns von der ersten Sekunde an in unserem Urlaubsdomizil sehr wohl gefühlt. Heather und Eric waren einfach perfekte Gastgeber / Vermieter!

Sarasota bietet viele wunderbare Restaurants und herrliche Strände, die mit dem Auto von der Villa aus in wenigen Minuten zu erreichen sind, das Haus lädt mit seiner angenehm persönlichen Note aber derart zum Verweilen ein, dass man es gar nicht verlassen möchte ;-)!

Uneingeschränkte Empfehlung! Wir planen definitiv zurückzukehren.

Beste Grüße

Great Hospitality! by Petra & Boy 10/01/2012

We have spent a wonderful week here in Sarasota and are looking already forward to meeting you again. In the meantime, let's stay in contact!

To all other who will follow us in the Villa Espanola - Good choice, congrats!"
