Downtown Sarasota – Carriage House

SARASOTA - CARRIAGE HOUSE

The Coolest Neighborhood in Downtown Sarasota

THE SPACE

Laurel Park is the coolest neighborhood in Downtown Sarasota. If you are coming for a vacation or considering moving here, this is an awesome location to use as a base camp while you explore the area. The hustle and bustle of main street is just half a mile away. Very safe and easy walk to literally dozens of trendy shops, casual restaurants, cool bars and upscale boutiques. This place is so much better than a hotel room. You will have your own private bungalow with nobody above or below. Unit size is 420 square feet. Main bed is a luxury foam Tuft and Needle King Size Mint Mattress with antimicrobial protection by HeiQ. Sofa pulls out to become a surprisingly comfortable twin size memory foam bed. We are neat freaks. The Carriage House will be immaculately clean. This is the perfect place for solo adventurers or couples to explore and enjoy the best Sarasota has to offer.

    Stephanie and Mike were great. I asked Stephanie for a small favor to have a bottle of wine waiting for us as a surprise for my girlfriends birthday. She was more than gracious to make it happen. She didn’t hesitate.
    Thanks again to our hosts!

    The Carriage House is a sweet spot on the edge of downtown. Beautiful neighborhood and perfect distance for walking to downtown and the Bay area. Lovely patio area for sitting outside to enjoy morning coffee or the evening calm. Hosts were fantastic with lots of information about the area. Very enjoyable.

    Loved staying at the Carriage House. There was so much thought and detail in what a guest would need and want included. Loved the book about the area and suggested hot spots included in the manual. Just wish we had more time to spend visiting.

    Everything was perfect! It was great not having to worry about the little things that other airbnbs don't bother to consider. For example, there was plenty of toilet paper, shampoo, conditioner, soap, dish soap and even a few snacks and drinks. Everything was very clean and comfortable. For us, it was the location that was key- walking distance to endless shops and restaurants. Plus, just a short drive to St. Armands circle, the beach and the Ringling Estate. We hope to be back soon!

    If I could give this property a 10-star rating, I would, as it ticks off every box a traveler needs. Stephanie and Mike are professionals.

    I am (humbly) a very discerning guest and here's my assessment.

    First and foremost, this place was (Website hidden by Airbnb) musty smell, no (Website hidden by Airbnb) nasty carpets...just clean wood floors. The bathroom and shower was spotless....

    The furnishings were high-quality...the bed was king-sized and beautifully comfortable with what seemed to be memory foam. A efficient washer/dryer combo. Oversized TV. Strong Wi-Fi. A wonderful massage chair!

    Bikes to ride...kayaks to borrow...beach "things" (umbrella/cooler, etc.).

    Aside from this unit, Sarasota is wonderful. Elegant and artsy, and urban, yet you are never far from nature and gorgeous ocean and bay views.

    The location is superb....a safe/upscale/quiet yet funky neighborhood....within comfortable walking to distance to Downtown shops, restaurants and other excellent destinations. World-class beaches are a short drive away.

    Communication with Stephanie was seamless...I needed nothing....but she was there if I did.

    I can't say enough about this place...everything is high-quality, including the hosts.

    We loved our Stay in Sarasota. This guest house is a great place for 1-2 people. It is well stocked for anything you might need and we enjoyed the large kitchen. The location is perfect, within a short walk to downtown but separate from any noisy commotion. We also really enjoyed the kayaks with the boat ramp just around the block.

    This is a great place to stay! It’s located on a quaint street with beautiful homes. It was very clean and had everything we needed and more. It really is located in a very cool neighborhood with lots of shops and restaurants nearby.

    We rode the bikes provided a little over a half mile to Main Street for brunch before riding over to the nearby Whole Foods to pick up some snacks. On our way back, we stopped at the gelato store which served “healthy” gelato and sorbet, which was made on-site with no preservatives. We also went to the beach where we made use of the provided beach chairs. We didn’t get a chance to use the kayaks - maybe next time. We would definitely stay here again!

    Awesome place near downtown Sarasota. Perfect for one or a couple. Very clean garage apartment behind main residence with an amazing shower, modern amenities, and great landscaping around the outside. Walking/biking distance to any number of cool bars/restaurants as well as the Bayfront area. Stephanie kept in great contact in the day/hours leading up to my stay and was always available if I needed a response or info. I imagine I'll be back if she'll have me

    If you plan on visiting Sarasota, you can't beat this perfect little carriage house. It's in a quiet neighborhood but only a short walk to the hub of activity in downtown Sarasota. We explored other towns and beaches during the day and walked downtown every night. We loved our stay. The place is clean, comfortable, private, and has just about everything you would need. So much better than staying in a hotel! Not to mention, Stephanie was a very attentive and helpful host. You won't be disappointed if you decide to stay here.

    Stephanie’s place was PERFECT! It was clean and provided all the amenities needed for a great vacation. We were visiting Sarasota mainly for Siesta Keys but fell in love with Lido Key based on the recommendations in the travel manual Stephanie put together-definitely check it out.

    The massage chair was great! The mattress was comfortable. We didn’t get a chance to use the outside patio but thought it was a nice option for a night in.

    Stephanie kept in touch with us and even allowed us to check in early and check out late. We will definitely be back and are even considering checking out one of her other places!

    This was such a great stay for us. We did a best friend’s trip and staying at the apartment at Laurel Park was perfect for us. We were walking and biking distance from the wonderful downtown area. The beach was just a short drive as was St. Armand’s Circle for MORE food and shopping.

    The bed was comfortable and the bathroom was clean. The massage chair was a welcome surprise. We took advantage of the kayak and the bikes and had such a blast!

    We will definitely rent from Stephanie again!

    We were pleasantly surprised by our accommodations here! The apartment was beautiful, comfortable and clean. Stephanie thought of EVERYTHING, so if we forgot something, she had it! The massage chair was awesome, the bed was really comfortable and the TV was big. We used the bikes to ride to the farmer’s market downtown, which was so close and so cool! We used the kayak to paddle to a beautiful park and see so many cool things along the way. I am a little picky about things, but we were pleasantly surprised by the thought and effort that went into making our stay truly memorable. Thanks, Stephanie!!

    Stephanie makes for an amazing host! Check-in was so easy and she was great with giving directions and instructions. The Carriage House was clean, cute, and well stocked! Stephanie had really thoughtful amenities from shampoo and conditioner, to beach chairs and sunburn gel - what more could beach goer want?! Check-out was simple and easy as well. Location is excellent, walking distance to tons of dining and shopping. Bed was super comfy and huge too - Ive slept on some rough beds at even the sweetest AirBnBs but this one was so comfy! Awesome find, would recommend and would def stay again!

    Our stay was amazing! The property had everything we needed and more from the full kitchen, coolers, bikes, kayaks, and beach chairs, we didn't have to worry about packing a lot. The room was perfect, clean, and comfortable and what can I say, the massage chair was such a great extra. The location was awesome being downtown and 10-15 minutes from all of the beaches and hot spots. Our favorite was riding the bikes all over town. We used them every day. We felt very safe walking and riding at night downtown as well. So many great places to eat and explore being in the heart of town. If you love Italian food this is the place to be. Plenty of restaurants, coffee shops, and shopping. Stephanie was so helpful when we needed something and offered plenty of recommendations for things to do and offered helpful tips. I would highly recommend staying here and would not think twice about booking here again when back in the area.

    Terrific spot in a very central location in downtown Sarasota. Our friends, who stayed in a nearby hotel, were so jealous!

Having lived in Sarasota for two brief stints, we knew that we'd like the location but it was better than expected! You won't be disappointed!

It is within walking distance to several wonderful restaurants, Bayfront park, and the botanical gardens. Stephanie is an excellent host and was very helpful with any questions/accommodations we needed. We used the bikes and beach chairs.

    lets just start this out with a bang, awesome little carriage house to stay at! Stephanie is a quick responder and delivers excellent hospitality. My partner and I took a quick trip to Sarasota to do some new sight seeing and get out of the colder states. the location of this airbnb is perfect for anyone that wants a quick walk to the beautiful shore line, or to visit the small shops locally, to a fast walk to the near by Whole Foods Market. we had a great time using the bikes that are provided as well as the little touches to this place like the off street private parking for the rental car to the Keurig cups ready to brew in the mornings.

    My cousin was down from Ohio so my husband and I decided to have a little Staycation in Sarasota. We wanted to be within walking distance of Main St and Stephanie's place was perfect! The carriage house was immaculate throughout with excellent kitchenware and appliances. The bed was super comfy but the best amenity was the fantastic massage chair! We both thoroughly enjoyed it and were even more relaxed after our visit. Highly recommend!

    This place is exactly as described, and Stephanie really went the extra mile in getting things ready for us on short notice. Never ceases to amaze me how kind and welcoming people can be. One of the best nights sleep my lady and I have had and we fell in love with the artistic, adventurous, quality, yet down to earth people of Sarasota.

    Staying in Sarasota The carriage house is a great place to stay at if you're coming to Sarsota.
    It's perfect for 2 people, clean and very comfortable.
    The place is close to downtown Sarasota, you can walk to many of the attractions.
    Stephanie provides her guests with a kayak you can take out, bikes if you'd like to ride around the area.
    Stephanie checks in with you through text to make sure you have everything you need.
    My daughter and I loved staying here. It was a home away from home.

    I needn’t write an elaborate review as it simply isn’t needed. The cottage house’s five star review is not a mistake. In fact, the only mistake that could be made is not picking this as your next vacation head quarters. Actually, scratch that. Do not stay here because I want to be able to book it again!

    We stayed for a staycation in Sarasota knowing the area quite well. We were shocked at the location of this venue. Tucked away in a perfect nook with kayak access, bikes to get you anywhere downtown or st armands, and all the amenities you could want. 6/5 with the great host. Will return.

    Perfect location We loved staying in the carriage house! It was a perfect location from which to walk to great restaurants, bars, the harbor, or just to stroll around the neighborhood. The beautiful beaches were within a 20-30 minute drive. Beach chairs and beach towels were provided for us, another plus. Didn’t get to use the bikes, but we got our exercise walking everywhere, every day. The owner was great to communicate with. She made sure we had everything we needed. Really appreciated the welcome basket and the coffee and creamers. Having a washer and dryer right in the closet was a big plus. The apartment was perfect for a short stay. The bed was super comfortable, and the sheets were so luxurious. We fell in love with Sarasota, and will be back.

It is a spotless and well maintained remodeled top floor of a carriage house and has everything one or two people need - well stocked kitchen, comfortable bed, nice linens and an outdoor space with a table and chairs on a patio. Stephanie is delightful and communicated very well with any questions we had. We would stay here again when we are in Sarasota. Thank you, Stephanie for a wonderful week in Laurel Park!!

    Stephanie and her husband offer such a beautiful place to stay in a great location to just about everything in Sarasota. Everything was just as they described in their listing. We walked or rode (their bikes) everywhere including to St. Armand's and Lido Key! We weren't in a car our whole stay. Because of their location it's so easy to get around and not drive. Anything that you might need for a wonderful stay in Sarasota is easily accessed from their place like groceries, incredible restaurants, live music, coffee shops, museums, walking trails etc. They were incredibly accommodating hosts and very quick to respond to our questions and offered great suggestions on things to do or restaurants to visit. Some of our favorite activities: Marie Selby Botanical Gardens (a must see), MURT trail to St. Armand's and Lido Key, Payne Park. Some of our favorite restaurants were Owen's Fish Camp (although because of the wait of 2 hours we ate off their limited menu out back which was not our favorite meal in Sarasota but the scene in the back is priceless), Selva, Libby's, Amore. For coffee shops we really enjoyed Kahwa and Pastry Art. It seemed like there were endless great food and drink choices. Stephanie's place is definitely someplace we will come back to!

    We are locals who are expecting another baby and needed a day to sleep in before baby arrives! Stephanie was absolutely wonderful! She gave suggestions on local restaurants to visit, places to bike to, and even informed us about the art festival that was going on. We ended up eating at The Fountain and Owen's Fish Camp on Saturday, and went to OfKors bakery for breakfast on Sunday. Everything was delicious! The studio was immaculate and the massage chair was heavenly! We have already spread the word to friends and family because we had such an amazing time! We would HIGHLY RECOMMEND booking with Stephanie!

    This was hands down one of our best experiences in places that we have stayed. Stephanie's place is so clean, comfortable, beautiful and in such a great location. We were able to walk or ride bikes everywhere. We never took advantage of the kayaks this trip but hope to the next time. The launch for the kayaks is truly right around the corner. There are so many great restaurants and activities to do around the city. And it's a nice bike ride over to St. Armand's and Lido beach. If you've never been to Sarasota it's definitely worth a visit. We loved it there! And a big reason for that was where we stayed and our hosts being so engaging and accommodating.

    Nice space in a quiet location within walking distance to many attractions. We recommend taking the kayak out to the mouth of the bay which is about a 25-30 minute trip out and skirts Selby Botanical Gardens. Although we did not have an opportunity to use the bicycles, it was nice that they were available, as were a couple of beach chairs. The space has a large wall mounted TV WITH local channels which is something not always available in some AirBnB spaces. This was appreciated especially when we had a couple of rain showers/downpours that held us up temporarily. Stephanie was a very friendly and responsive host.

    Everything about this place is great!!! The host, the location, the apartment itself. It is located in a quiet residential neighborhood but within easy walking distance to restaurants and shops. Stephanie was an extremely responsive host - always getting right back in touch with me if I had any questions. The apartment itself was very comfortable. There's even a welcome basket of snacks and a couple of bottled waters in the fridge which is so nice to have when you have been traveling. There are two bikes provided which we used on the MURT Trail. Easy access and easy riding along the bay - all the way over to St. Armand Key. It was beautiful. I also ran the trail and it was awesome!!! We rented a car just because we were interested in checking out all the nearby keys. There is a lot to see and do. The apartment is really very centrally located for accessing all the keys, no destination we went to was over 30 minutes and the views when riding through the keys were amazing! We also rented a boat for a day at the nearby Marina Jack. Even though we don't have a whole lot of boating experience, it was easy to navigate the waterways and we spent a great day out on the water. The apartment is a great value - definitely the most for your money, in what can be a very "pricey" area. I would recommend staying here if you are in the area. I only wish we would have had time to take the kayak out. The launch was only a block away and it looked like it would be a lot of fun. May be next time!

    No better value in Sarasota. We were a short walk into town, but even shorter with the bikes provided. When we went to the beach we had beach towels and chairs and even an umbrella included. Access to the place was super easy and located in a quiet neighborhood. The kitchen has some excellent amenities like the microwave oven and hot plate. There was an ice machine which came in handy. Most of all we enjoyed using the washer/dryer to clean all our clothes before coming home. Stephanie had a little welcome letter, snacks and chocolates on the bed. Little touches go a long way. If we return I would stay here again no question.

    This was our second two night stay at Stephanie's place, one year apart. When we arrived the accommodations looked just as fresh and new as the year before, and we immediately felt at home. Not a lot of space, but the single room is well organized and comfortable. You can't beat the location for access to downtown Sarasota. We again enjoyed a 25 minute walk across town for breakfast at the Toasted Mango, and spent some time on a park bench overlooking the bay. Stephanie is a welcoming and attentive host. You do need to walk up a full flight of stairs for entry, something to consider if you're not in the best health. We had no problems.

The location was perfect for us to walk to many of the local restaurants along with being tucked away in a quaint beautiful neighborhood. The rental was absolutely spotless which was important to us but the location was the top priority. We were able to get easily to Venice, Siesta and Lido key for the beaches but was also a good home base to get to some of the bigger cities. From this location we also were able to travel to St. Petersburg, Tampa and Naples. I would definitely stay here again and plan to! Thank you Stephanie!!

    Even though we read many glowing reviews for Stephanie's Carriage House, our stay still exceeded expectations. Communication was excellent. Stephanie was attentive and accommodating. The space was very clean with quality furnishings. The bed was very comfortable. Location is great. The neighborhood is very quiet, yet close to everything. We are thankful to Stephanie for sharing this with us,

    This was one of the best AirBNBs I have ever stayed at! The property is immaculate and there are so many great amenities provided for your stay. The location is in a great part of town as well; It’s very close to the beaches, shopping, and fantastic restaurants. Stephanie was a phenomenal host and she put a lot of effort into providing the best stay possible for guests. I would definitely return if I’m ever in the area again!

    One of my best Airbnb stays! Excellent communication, fabulous location and just enough checking in to make sure everything was good! Very clean, quiet (except for lovely birdsong when I walked outside) and the massage chair was a welcome treat! Thank you for a great stay in Sarasota while I taught at Marie Selby! Loved that I could walk to the Ringling Bridge each morning for sunrise and a short drive to Lido for sunset! Such lovely wonderful hosts! I highly recommend this little gem of a place!!!

    This cute, comfortable carriage house is in a great location. Laurel Park has fun shops, great restaurants, a movie theater, etc., but it’s also an easy walk to Main Street. We used the available kayak as well as the bicycles. The beach bag (with towels and sunscreen) as well as chairs and umbrella were great for our day on Lido Beach. We would love to come back and stay here again!!

    You'll feel really taken care of staying at this place. The carriage house was immaculate, private, and beautiful. Stephanie is a great communicator and was thoughtful about the little touches to make your stay really homey and comfortable. There was a basket of snacks, a coffee machine, a beach bag with beach towels and suntan lotion, and the place even had a massage chair. There was a washer/dryer and a laundry basket and ironing board. The location was great - walking distance to downtown Sarasota and Bay front park. There was a bit of construction in the immediate area but still felt extremely safe. If you're looking to stay in downtown this is a wonderful spot.

    We stayed at a bunch of different AirBnBs during a week of exploring Tampa/St Pete/Sarasota. Stephanie’s place was our favorite by far. She was a proactive host reaching out to us before our trip to see if we had any special needs. We got to meet her in person upon arrival which was a nice touch. The apartment was exactly as presented online. In addition it had the quietest A/C of any of the places we stayed. It wasn’t one that keeps cycling on/off just as your falling asleep - for which we were grateful. Also it was very clean and fresh. No air fresheners or others perfumes masking a musty smell. Cold water in fridge was welcome as we arrived on a super-hot afternoon. The fold out couch was comfortable, not a bar-in-the-back situation. We didn’t take advantage of the outdoor patio or bicycles but they were inviting. The massage chair was a fun extra as well.

    We (2 women)walked to the downtown area for afternoon cocktails and dinner. It felt completely safe and it was nice to ditch the car for an evening.

    I would whole-heartedly recommend this place and would stay here again in the future.

    We really enjoyed our two night stay at Stephanie's carriage house in downtown Sarasota. Stephanie was there when we arrived and gave us a friendly welcome. The room was very clean, new and comfortable. It was a 5 minute walk to Owen's Fish Camp where we joined friends for a fun, unique dinner. The next morning we walked to the Toasted Mango for breakfast, a 25 minute stroll across downtown shopping district and past the Opera House. Complimentary coffee provided by Stephanie tasted especially good. As the posting says, you need to be able to climb a full set of stairs to get to the room. No problem for us. We would definitely return and recommend to others.

    The perfect studio apartment with a host who goes above and beyond.

    Every single picture Stephanie has in regards to the property is spot on. It was cleaner than any hotel you'd stay at in the price range she offers with way more amenities. We stayed at the Carriage House for a week and it was absolutely perfect. There's an indie movie theater and great restaurants and shops within walking distance for nights we wanted to go out (Stephanie's suggestion of Owen's Fish Camp is a MUST - so good!). Nights we wanted to eat in we had all the appliances needed to cook which helped make our week long trip even more affordable.

    She really thinks of every detail including leaving guidebooks about the area with things to do and see and even provides a beach bag with towels and beach chairs and roll-aways. This was perfect for us when we hit up Siesta Key.

    One of my favorite amenities Stephanie provides is the massage chair. We took a day trip to Disney World and that chair was incredibly helpful after being on our feet all day.

    Right now there is some construction going on in the area near the property which can make getting off the road a little tricky, but it's manageable and we didn't experience any excessive noise or anything like that. The neighborhood is actually quite peaceful. Stephanie really goes out of her way to make sure you feel welcome (she even left us a welcome note and cold water upon arrival) and lets you know that she's accessible if you ever need anything (but she has already thought of everything so it wasn't an issue). While she and her family were living right next door to us we never saw each other much so it really feels like you have your own place. For us this was the perfect Airbnb for our trip. We can't recommend it enough!

Stephanie was very easy to communicate with and took care of everything. Everything we needed for the beach, including towels and beach bag was very nice. Would certainly stay here again.

    The carriage house was better then expected. Stephanie could not have been a better host. Would definitely come back here to stay when we are in town. Thank you

    Great location near everything downtown. We drove sometimes.....and sometimes we just walked. Comfortable room. Immaculately clean. Super quiet. Short drive to beaches. Massage chair is amazing. ....we want one.

    Enjoyed another great stay at Stephanie's Carriage House. She makes the experience so easy! The condo is in a great location, we enjoyed walking to all our fav restaurants and hangouts.

    Another pleasant stay at Casa Devonshire. Since we were moving to Sarasota this time we had some special requests which Stephanie graciously accommodated. As before; clean, quiet and convenient.

    One of the best Air BnB we ever stayed at. In an awesome location. Stephanie was a great host, her recommendations to resturants, sights to see, and the kayak launch were great.

    We had a wonderful stay. We were very comfortable with the owners and they helped us get set up using their bikes and kayaks. The place was very clean and had everything we needed for our 4 day trip. It it also in a great location in downtown Sarasota.

    We were at end of long road trip and our previous stay had been very unsatisfying.

    Stephanie's carriage house was exactly what we needed: beautiful, comfortable and in the heart of a thriving historic waterfront community!

    When we become Airbnb hosts, our goal is to be as warm, helpful and responsive as Stephanie. She was out of town but you'd never know it with her almost immediate text responses.

    This was a home run!

    What's marvelous place! It fit our needs exactly. Great location, neat, clean, fresh and new.
    The home is near downtown and walkable to so much in the city. We brought our bikes to make it even easier and Stephanie allowed us to lock them up on the patio. You can even kayak from the city launch just a block away.
    The room was spotless. Ample room for two for an entire week. Everything was in working order with all the necessities plus (washer/dryer, small kitchen appliances, full size fridge, etc). We made breakfast everyday which was convenient.
    Stephanie was a great host available when needed but also allowed us our privacy.
    You can't go wrong with this one.

    Perfect location, very friendly, nicely decorated. Only problem was that we were only there one night. Would absolutely go back next time we're passing through town!

    Stephanie's carriage house a great find, located in the historic district of Sarasota. We only stayed one night but it was the perfect location for what we were in town to accomplish. Stephanie was helpful with suggestions for dinner that evening. "Owen's Fish Camp" is a awesome local experience! Additionally our canine companion was welcome and we are very appreciative.
    Thank you for you hospitality!

    Exceptional place to stay! Stephanie was a great host, and her place is absolutely beautiful and comfy. She provided wonderful recommendations for places to eat and go downtown. The location is perfect ... we were able to walk everywhere.
