It's true what they say... 'good things do come in small packages!' This adorable cottage is located one block east of Tamiami Trail.

It is a fully furnished stand-alone home, equipped kitchen, queen bed, private fenced yard with patio just perfect for small pookies (dogs).

No need to worry about bringing your toiletries, we provide 3.5 ounce bottles of shampoo, conditioner, body wash, 50 spf sunscreen, fresh bar of Dial soap and body scrubby for that fresh spa like feeling.

Don't feel like heating up the kitchen for dinner? Well then, how about grilling up some fresh shrimp and steak on the propane grill and then dining Al Fresco on the patio.

Hmm, what about the laundry? Well not to worry, it is just across the street about 50 steps from the the front door. But wait... there's more! We keep the beach chairs, beach umbrella in the storage unti out side. Want to take a little bike ride to check out the area? Just let us know and we will place two bicycles in the laundry room for your enjoyment. The bicycles are available upon request for $25 each per week or $100 each per monthly stay.

Have pets? We are very fond of pets (up to 25Lbs.) so bring FiFi or Fido (we are very allergic to kitties... aahh choo!) along with you. They can run and play in the large fenced yard to their hearts' content. Please remember to clean up after you pet. Oops! You forgot to bring bags for FiFi? We provide one roll for each pet and a small bag of treats for them as well. After all, they are on vacation too! There is a 'pet fee' of $100 per pet, per stay. Please let us know if you are bringing a pet.

There is a small beach that is opposite Bird Key that is definitely dog-friendly. It's used as a launch area for sailboarders and kayakers, some fishermen, and by locals who want a place for their dogs to swim. It's definitely a place for fido to splash around. It's certainly legal; there are doggy poop bags plus signs to clean up after your pet. If you're trying to locate it, Bird Key beach is just as you cross Ringling Bridge from downtown and before you get to Lido Key/St. Armands. If you're just looking for a place to walk your pet may we suggest Joan Durante Park on Longboat Key.

Just minutes to 1000's of things to do! Only 2 blocks from Ringling College of the Arts and 2 blocks to the Sarasota Jungle Gardens provide you with the best location in town.

A short 5 to 10 minute car ride to everything from Shopping, Art Galleries, Museums and Cultural Arts. Enjoy walking to outdoor Cafes, Farmer's Markets, Festivals and Parades. Walk the City's Waterfront Park & Harbor to Marina Jack's Restaurant. Award Winning Shopping And Dining Located In World Famous Siesta Key Village Waits! From Cocktails To Ice Cream Cones, You'll Find It Here.

We Have The Purest, Softest Quartz Sand In The Country; Sarasota Also Boasts A World Class Theatre And Arts District. Go Para-Sailing, Fishing, Golfing, Or Just Walk Along The Gulf Of Mexico.

Sarasota Is Known For Its Circus History. Originally nicknamed 'Circus Town USA' when Ringling Brothers. Barnum & Bailey came to town in 1927, Sarasota's bustling Main Street and sunny island beaches have helped turn it into one of the most sought-after living destinations in Florida.

Whether it's a spirited match of tennis, a cool morning swim or an afternoon of Memphis soul at Sarasota's Annual Blues Fest, Carolina Cottage is the perfect place to enjoy the Gulf Coast just 5 minutes from the sun blanched beaches of Lido Key.

Unforgettable Bar-b-Ques's
It was our first stay in Sarasota and we have had a wonderful time here. Carolina Cottage is welcoming and just the right size for two. It has a great location to downtown and Lido Key. It is quiet pad has a lovely yard for relaxing and some unforgettable Bar-b-Ques's. We hope to come back new year. Thank you Kalypso Bay for a great vacation, best regards and Merry Christmas!

We really enjoyed our stay in Sarasota and at Lido Beach. Siesta Key's drum circle on Sunday was especially enjoyable. Sadie (pookie) loved the large yard at the cottage it was a real plus to was her run and play! Thanks for everything Beth and we want to give a special thank you to you and your staff for helping us out when we needed them.

Carolina Cottage is a cozy (about 450 sq. ft.), attractively appointed and thoughtfully stocked, 1 bedroom/1 shower, block home with loaded cable and wi-fi, surrounded by a privacy fence with a gate for closing behind your vehicle. What you may like are: a nearby laundromat, a neighborhood (smaller) Walmart, Walgreen's, Family Dollar, CVS, and popular Chinese restaurant. The TV picture was on the blurry side, perhaps needing to be replaced or hi-def added. The surrounding neighborhood, where we did many our daily walks over a 3-week period, sometimes after dark, is safe and, for the most part, quiet, except for a few passing vehicles with over-amplified sound systems and the occasional distraction caused by raised voices of apartment dwellers outside and interacting across the street, factors which urban dwellers seeking to rent a nice place at a budget price would not even notice. Our rental, thanks to Beth and her trusty, helpful, and charming side-kick Ryan with Kalypso Bay, made everything a breeze. We 60-something retirees are glad we were there for our 22 days!

Cute little place for a great price! We really enjoyed our stay at Carolina Cottage! It was clean, fully furnished, and private....Perfect for three girls on a short getaway! In the backyard of Walmart Market which is very convenient. No washer and dryer which is slightly unhandy, however the laundromat is right across the road which helps a lot. Beth is excellent to work with and very helpful with any questions or problems you will have! All in all, definitely would go back!

Cozy 'n' Cute Carolina Cottage!
This environmentally sound, delightfully decorated cottage is perfect for a couple on a budget who also want the amenities of a cozy getaway. My husband and I spent the month of February and found everything we needed and more at this rental property: ten minute drive to Lido Beach, three minute drive to the Ringling Museum, around the corner from drugstores, grocery shopping and a full-service laundromat. Quiet and safe community of friendly neighbors.

Cozy and Convenient Carolina Cottage!
Carolina Cottage is just the right size for two people who want to avoid staying in a hotel for a week or a month. Its kitchen is well stocked with almost brand new pots, pans and every other utensil you might need. The bedroom has a small walk-in closet. There is a grill outside for barbecueing. A supermarket and laundry are just a short walk from the front door and through a 6 foot fence which surrounds the property and gives plenty of privacy and security. A very good Chinese restaurant is also within walking distance. It's also just a short drive to the bay. We really enjoyed our stay here. We would recommend this location to anyone.
