Top 10 Luxury Rentals In Sarasota, Florida


Sarasota is “a place for dancing” in Florida’s Cultural Coast. Six islands on the Gulf of Mexico and 35 mi (56 km) of coastline make it a paradise for annual visitors. Most travelers spend their days on the beach during the day and go shopping at night. When you’re in Sarasota, find time to check out the specialty shops and galleries. This part of Tampa Bay is not only a place for summer fun, but it also attracts retirees and people who wish to relocate to where seafood dishes are daily fare. As Gulf Coast cities go, Sarasota’s eclectic offerings bring you a surprising mix of botanical gardens, legacy trails, and a chance to find the teeth of a prehistoric shark on the beach. IF you’re looking for a place to stay, here are the top luxury rentals in Sarasota, Florida.
