How to select the perfect vacation rental in Sarasota

Sarasota is more than just another Florida beach town. Sure, the bountiful beaches (stretching over 35 miles along the Gulf of Mexico) are some of the best in the country, but what really distinguishes Sarasota is its cultural scene. Kick-started by circus magnate and patron of the arts John Ringling in the 1920s, Sarasota now boasts an arts scene that no beach town of its size as any right to, with dozens of galleries and boutiques, fantastic museums, and even an opera house.

When it comes to choosing where to rent a vacation home in Sarasota, consider what it is you want to do. Are you looking for a stroll along a tranquil stretch of secluded sand, or a beach with easy access to shops and restaurants? Would you prefer to be right there in the thick of it all, or in a more quiet residential community? Depending on your preference, here’s where to stay:

  • Downtown Sarasota: Downtown is Sarasota’s cultural heart, where you’ll find its best shopping, dining, and nightlife. Walkable Main Street is lined with cafes, bistros, and galleries, as is Ringling Boulevard just to the south. At night, head to a rooftop hotel bar for excellent views of Sarasota Bay. Condos are aplenty in Downtown Sarasota, but single homes for rent are rare. However, if you’re looking for proximity to downtown, search for rental homes in adjacent neighborhoods like Laurel Park, Avondale, Arlington Park, Bayview, or Poinsettia Park for easy access.
  • St. Armands and Lido Key: Across the John Ringling causeway from Downtown you’ll find closely-connected St Armands and Lido Key. St. Armands Circle offers a bounty of boutiques and restaurants and is perfect for a stroll. Rent a home in the surrounding neighborhood and you can walk to both restaurants and the beach. Just across the causeway lies Lido Beach, one of Sarasota’s best, lined with some of its most exclusive hotels. The northern stretch of beach is less developed and more private, while the southern section spears out into the bay for incredible views of Sarasota.
  • Siesta Key: South of downtown, this is Sarasota’s most famous beach, and one of the greatest stretches of powdery sand in the country. The neighborhoods back behind the beach are cut through with canals and offer some of Sarasota’s best vacation rentals. Ocean Boulevard serves as Siesta Key’s main street, and is lined with shops and restaurants. Siesta Key’s popularity does mean that you’re unlikely to find a secluded spot of sand, especially along the broad curve of sand known as Crescent Beach, but those looking for more privacy can head south down the key to secluded Turtle Beach.
  • Longboat Key: North of Lido Key, Longboat Key snakes up the coast with another 10 miles of fantastic beach. While more private than the beaches to the south, access is limited for those not staying in a home or condo here.
