Why Sarasota guests love staying with TurnKey...

"Very nice spacious home my family stayed in Sarasota. It was near the downtown, the YMCA, the beach and lots of restaurants. Couldn't have asked for a better location for our first time visiting this area. The house was clean and well equipped if you wanted to make your own meals. The beach towels and chairs were much welcomed on our days to the beach. Only downside to his house was no heat in the pool. The water was too cold to swim although the pool area was beautiful. Overall, good rental for the family."..."

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.

Sarasota Vacation Rentals Frequently Asked Questions

Companies like Airbnb and Vrbo operate listing websites that enable guests to research and book a vacation rental anywhere in the world. However, once a guest books the property, they need to work directly with either the homeowner, host or property manager any time they have questions or need assistance with booking or during their stay. This can be a challenge for some homeowners, particularly those who live far away from their vacation rental. TurnKey offers a consistent and reliable high-end experience, resulting in strong reviews, repeat bookings and more. TurnKey also has a local Sarasota team, 24/7 support and in-home technology to ensure an amazing vacation experience in every home, every stay, every time.

Yes! TurnKey has established the best network of professional house cleaners in Sarasota to ensure that our guests always arrive at an exceptionally clean home. Expect to find beds made with hotel-grade linens and bathrooms stocked with fresh towels and a complimentary starter set of toiletries.

Unlike many vacation rentals in the area, our local team and network of Sarasota house cleaners guarantee that you’ll never need to clean up at the end of your stay. Sometimes, especially during busy seasons, starting a load of towels or linens can help our house cleaners finish their clean more quickly. We certainly appreciate it when guests do this, but we do not require it.

TurnKey offers 24/7 guest support that you can contact at any time to make your stay more enjoyable. Paired with our local Sarasota team, we can respond quickly to any in-home help you might need.

All of TurnKey’s Sarasota vacation rentals are equipped with complimentary, reliable, high-speed WiFi so you can always stay connected.

Every TurnKey Sarasota vacation rental includes a fully-equipped kitchen where you can cook and prepare meals with your friends and family.

We’ve installed our proprietary digital locks on all Sarasota vacation rentals to offer our guests secure, keyless entry. Each code is time-sensitive, so you don’t have to worry about anyone else having access to the home while you’re there. Prior to check-in, you’ll receive arrival instructions with your custom code for easy, seamless access.

TurnKey carefully vets all of our homes, so you can be sure you’ll always stay in a premium vacation rental. We offer some of the most distinctive, unique vacation homes in all of Sarasota, backed by our exceptional home care and 24/7 guest service.
