Just a quick note to say how much we have enjoyed our months holiday in sunny Sarasota, the villa has been far more than our expectations, from the welcoming bottle of bubbly, the Xmas decorations made us feel most welcome. The weather has been in the 80's most days, whilst the pool has reached the 90's on many occasions.
Again many thanks for providing an exceptional holiday home, which we would highly recommend to any future renters. Regards, David and Denise
