Bungalow, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)
My wife and I are two semi retired executives with 2 daughters and 3 young grandchildren who love visiting are beautiful home in Florida. We have been coming to Florida for the past several years with the intention of increasing our time as our professional schedules permit.
Owner purchased this Bungalow in 2010
Why Owner chose Tara Golf & Country Club
We chose to buy at Tara after having rented on several prior occasions. We also chose to accept the advice and recommendations from freinds who were well established at Tara and who had as well made recent purchases for their homes.
What makes this Bungalow unique
Our home has arguably the best location on the golf course. It is a short walk to the amenities of the clubhouse and the practice range as well as next to the 9th green and 1st tee. We also enjoy the proximity of the ocean and the city of Sarasota with its many world renowned cultural activities.

Great stay with a minor issue.
My only issue was with the NEST thermostat that seems to have a mind of it's own. Even after contacting the owner who remotely disabled any pre-set programming on the thermostat we would still set it at one temperature and wake up hot around 5am to find the thermostat set 5 or so degrees higher than what we set it at before going to bed.
Quiet, comfortable, relaxing.
The property is in a lovely location, great for shopping, dining and 30 mins form fabulous beaches. Very comfortable house with everything we needed. Fabulous view from the patio, we saw lots of birds and an alligator every day. Even saw a 12 foot alligator crossing the road at the end of the street (to change ponds according to the locals!), what an experience. Very comfortable beds, could do with a wardrobe in the 3rd bedroom.
Had an issue with plumbing on arrival which was fixed after 4 days. In fairness the owners did try and find an emergency plumber immediately, but we appreciate how difficult this can be. The issue did not impact on our enjoyment of the property, but feel that the bathrooms maybe are ready for an upgrade soon.
We enjoyed our stay and would come back.
Jane, we are happy that you enjoyed your stay. Pauline and I agree that the views from the patio and pool area, particularly with the evening sunsets are spectacular. It is truly a comfortable home that we continue to enjoy through the years. Thank you for your patience with the taps in the bathrooms. We did our best to access a handyman who would work on the weekend and are grateful that the issue did not impact your enjoyment of our
home. Again, we appreciate that you enjoyed your stay and you are most welcome to come back. All the very best. Pauline and Stu
Excellent facilities in a beautiful location
A wonderful property with everything you could possibly need to enjoy your stay.
We had no problems at all, but prior to our stay Stu was excellent and responded to my questions immediately. We very much hope we will be back to stay in this beautiful property again.
Hi Alison, Pauline and I are very happy that you enjoyed your stay and treated our home as if it were your own. You are welcome back anytime. All the best ...Stu
Beautiful villa on the superb Tara development with fantastic views.
Excellent. Will be back when funds allow.
Jill, we are happy that you enjoyed your stay. You are most welcome back anytime in the future. Stu
Tara golf and Country club is the bomb! The villa was expansive and on a superb quiet and relaxing estate. We loved the fact every renter has been leaving amenities like washing up stuff etc First aid, coffee, tea! Stu and Pauline dealt with all our enquiries promptly and an absolute pleasure to deal with. We cannot wait to return! The location is top of the line, 6 miles from lakewood ranch and SR70 has an array of restaurants and bars some within walking distance. Loved the clubhouse gym and pool. Don't hesitate to book stu and Paulines home it's the best thanks so much
Scott, Debbie, Amanda and hope
Hi Scott, it was a pleasure for Pauline and I to host you in our sunny vacation home. We are particularly pleased that you treated it like it was your own. Happy that you enjoyed the fitness and club pool as well. It is indeed a first class set up. You are most welcome to return.Just remember to give yourself lots of lead time as guests are tending to book well ahead of their planned vacation date.
Cheers until next time...Stu and Pauline
Great home and great owners, too. We love everything about the place!
This is a very nice property with everything you could hope for in a rental property. Very clean, well equipped, quiet, safe and has beautiful surroundings. Sit by the pool and watch the sunsets each night. Perfect layout, too. Great for golfers as the home backs right up to the course and the owner’s membership is transferable for a reasonable fee. Pauline and Stu are great to work with. Just please don’t rent this house on the dates we want next year!!!! 😂
Access to our home is outstanding as it is located right next to I 75. The Ringling and antique auto museums are must-see attractions. Live theatre and multiple cultural attractions and restaurants available in Sarasota as well. The best beaches in the world located a short drive away.
