Our condo is the small studio at the upper right in the building pictured - it has a fairly private bedroom (no door) and a sleeper sofa in the living room; best for 2, but sleeps 4. The one bath has a shower and some storage for toiletries. A large closet has hanging space and several shelves and drawers; the bedside tables have 4 compartments each. We've stocked the kitchen with basic kitchenware, and we provide sheets, towels, beach towels, and basic bathroom necessities. We rent for 7+ days.
Richards' Paradise Retreat is perfect for couples or a single person. We offer a privacy wall between the bedroom area (queen size bed) and the living room (includes a full size sofa bed). While the Sarasota area is easy to navigate, we provide a "cheat sheet" with directions to the places you might most like to go; and phone numbers - emergency, near by restaurants, kayak rentals, etc. A car is necessary if you want to shop for groceries. We also provide limited cable TV and high-speed Internet access. We know you will enjoy your stay in our quaint Retreat!
Laundry facilities (requires quarters) are on the property, across the drive from our condo. It costs 1.75 per wash and 1.75 per dry in the new large capacity washer/dryers.
Please note this is a NO SMOKING condo. In consideration of others we ask that you not smoke in the condo, on the balcony or on the stairs. Please go across the street and enjoy a little walk while you smoke. We thank you in advance for adhering to this rule.
When you leave the beach shower at one of the several shower stations offered for that purpose. Before you go up to the condo please shower again at the pool, and rinse any toys, etc. Do not empty sandy clothes, towels, shoes, toys in the condo. This is critical for our plumbing!
We do not live on the premises when the condo is rented, however, our hostess does. When we choose each other for your vacation in Sarasota, we will provide you with her contact information. I'm also available by phone or email should you need to call me.

Since we are on the second floor there is one set of stairs to climb. Access is from either end of the building - covered stairs in the front and closest to the condo; open stairs at the other end.
When you come back from the beach you must shower off at the pool before going to the condo. The plumbing for the units cannot handle the sand. PLEASE respect this house rule.
The pool and laundry facility are both open from 9am to 10pm.
Beach chairs and umbrellas can be rented for a daily fee at the concession stand at the public beach access - about a 5-7 minute walk, depending on the walkers.
Grocery stores can be found about 6 miles up Longboat Key, or 5 miles into Sarasota. Therefore a car is a real convenience, though Uber is also available.
Again, we cannot allow smoking on the premises.
- Please contact us with questions about about children. We love kids but want to be sure you have all the info you need before making a final decision.
We expect our guests to be considerate of others in the building and on the premises. Pool rules are posted and must be followed - we are not responsible for pool safety - YOU are, and it's more likely if you follow the rules!
- Though we are not geared specifically for young children, please read our description carefully and decide if our space is appropriate for your children based on age and interests. We will consider 1 or 2 children - please email or call before booking to talk it over.
- Please, no smoking, no parties. We're located in a family-friendly community that just happens to be near great stuff for grownups, too!
- Please remove your shoes when in the house. That will minimize sand on the floor and will be quieter for our neighbors.
- Loud music and talking on the balcony will disturb others. Please be thoughtful.
My husband and I love to travel, especially in the US. We’re just starting to use AirBnB for ourselves, having had good experiences using it for our rental property in Sarasota. We’re retired and look forward to meeting people through AirBnB.
