Einer der schönsten Urlaube
Schon bei der Anfahrt zum Haus konnten wir die schöne Umgebung bewundern. Die eingestellten Bilder des Hauses sprechen für sich. Es ist wirklich alles so wie dort abgebildet, nur noch schöner :-). Die Schlafzimmer und Bäder sind super ausgestattet und vor allem sehr sauber. Die Betten schön groß und bequem. Auch in der Küche und im Esszimmer fehlt es an überhaupt nichts. An alles wurde gedacht. Besteck und Geschirr sind mehr als ausreichend vorhanden, sodass nicht jedes mal gleich die Spülmaschine laufen muss. Waschmaschine und Trockner sind ebenfalls Top, der Grill am Pool eine Wucht. Der Pool und die Terrasse waren unser Hauptaufenthaltsort Ob zum Schwimmen oder auch zum Frühstück bzw. Abendessen (BBQ), hier waren wir einfach gerne. Einmal in der Woche kommt der Poolservice und schaut nach dem rechten. Es war einfach alles Perfekt und die Vermieter sehr nett. Als wir ankamen, fanden wir eine ganz herzliche Begrüßungsnotiz vor, dass machte es aus, danke dafür noch mal. Wir haben schon einige Ferienhäuser besucht, dass hier aber war das Beste und wir können die Unterkunft auch nur wärmstens Empfehlen. Genug des Lobes, jetzt kommt der Negative Teil: Der Urlaub war zu kurz, leider :-( Tipps: Da das Haus nur wenige Minuten zum Siesta Key Beach entfernt ist, haben wir diesen auch oft besucht. Da der Strand bekannter weise der Nr. 1 Strand der USA ist, ist er auch gut besucht. Platz am Strand ist genug, aber an den Parkplätzen scheitert es oft. Am besten schon vor 10:00 Uhr dort sein und Sonntage vermeiden. Es gibt aber auch noch andere Strände die sehr schön sind z.B. Lido Beach. Hier kann man ohne ende Muscheln sammeln. Besuchen sollte man auch den Myakka River State Park. Hier sieht man unter Garantie Alligatoren frei rumlaufen. Einkaufen kann man gleich "um die Ecke" im Publix, Walmart (das gibt es alles) und Target um nur einige zu nennen.Eine riesige Mall ist sogar Fußläufig in 15 min. zu erreichen, die Sarasota Square Mall. Dort waren wir oft :-) Sehr sehr gerne würden wir wieder kommen, wenn es die Zeit zulässt. Wir haben uns sehr sehr wohl gefühlt und sind nur ungern wieder nach Hause gefahren. Vielen lieben Dank Erika und Heiner für die schöne Zeit und die herzliche Begrüßung in eurem wunderschönem Haus.

Einfach ein tolles Haus!
Durch die guten Informationen vorab hatten wir keinerlei Probleme das Haus zu finden. Auch wenn die Fotos eine gewisse Erwartung wecken, wir waren trotzdem noch positiv Überrascht. Für uns (8 Personen) war es einfach ideal. Jedes Schlafzimmermit eigenem Bad, großes Wohnzimmer und Esszimmer. Natürlich die Terasse und der Pool. Durch die Abdeckung und Heizung war dieser auch im Februar schön warm. Es ist einfach an alles gedacht, vom Standhandtuch über das Fahrrad bis zur Mikrowelle. Die Lage ist prima. Ruhige Nachbarschaft, Supermarkt um die Ecke, die Strände nicht weit weg. Schade, dass wir nicht mehr Zeit hatten. Kann dieses Haus nur empfehlen und wüsste nicht was man noch verbessern oder ergänzen sollte.

Ferien Villa Colleen Sarasota
Eine wunderbare Villa, viel Platz, drei Schlafzimmer mit integriertem Bad und riesigem Bett, zwei Kinderzimmer dazu, sowas findet sich selten. Der grosse Pool ist wirklich so blau und der riesengrosse Screen ist nicht einsehbar und durch die vielen Palmen und Pflanzen bietet sich eine sehr private Atmosphaere. Es ist alles mehr als ausreichend vorhanden und es ist an alles gedacht. Geschaefte und Lokale sind in unmittelbarer Naehe vorhanden und die traumhaften Straende sind auch nur 10 Autominuten entfernt. Die Besitzer und die deutschsprachige Vorort Betreuung sind sehr zuvorkommend. Wir haetten es nicht besser treffen koennen und kommen sicher wieder. Bis dann Fam. H.

Villa Colleen
Wir hatte wirklich einen wunderschönen Urlaub in eine traumhaften Ambiente! Großzügige und sehr gepflegte Zimmer, die jeweils mit einem eigenen Bad ausgestattet sind. Eine toll ausgestattete, offene Küche und einen riesigen Wohnbereich mit Fernseher und allem drum und dran. Hauptsächlich lagen wir aber den ganzen Tag an dem wunderschönen Pool oder machten ein BBQ im Außenbereich. Stühle und Liegen waren mehr als ausreichend vorhanden. Unsere Gruppe bestand aus 9 Personen und wir waren uns alle einig: Das war nicht unser letzter Urlaub in der Villa Colleen!

Traumurlaub in der Villa Colleen
Liebe Familie Biendl, Schon zum dritten Mal durften wir in ihrer Villa Colleen Ferien verbringen und wir waren erneut ganz begeistert. Wir hatten uns sehr auf den Urlaub gefreut und wurden nicht enttäuscht. Unsere Terminanfrage wurde innerhalb weniger Stunden beantwortet. Da unser Wunschtermin noch frei war, mussten wir auch nicht lange überlegen. Herr Biendl buchte uns auch noch die passenden Flüge und den Mietwagen dazu, so dass wir uns um nichts mehr kümmern mussten. Bei unserer Ankunft haben wir wie immer alles so vorgefunden, wie wir es gewohnt sind. Wir fühlten uns sogleich wieder wie zu Hause. Alles, was man braucht, ist vorhanden. Badetücher, Strandliegen, Kaffeemaschine, Küchenausstattung, usw. Dementsprechend wenig Gepäck mussten wir mitnehmen. Neu war dieses Mal, dass die Teppiche im Wohnzimmer und im Schlafzimmer, die schon leichte Verschleißerscheinungen aufwiesen, durch Fliesen ersetzt wurden. Das wertet die Villa noch mehr auf. Wir haben bereits für nächstes Jahr gebucht und freuen uns schon sehr darauf.

The 1st renters of 1726 Colleen
This was our first home rental experience and the first to rent this beautiful home. We walk in and were immediately at home. Rented for 4 weeks giving us the opportunity to explore Sarasota to the fullest, coming home in the evening to a pool side diner and relaxing in the yard for countless hours. The owners called on occasions to confirm that everything was ok, nice and courteous.

lovely house with pool in Sarasota
We are four mature couples who just spent two weeks at this lovely, spacious and very bright and clean home. The beautiful pool and lanai area was spacious and well equipped with outdoor furniture sets in several areas, providing group or individual areas for relaxation and enjoyment. The owners were very attentive by calling to ensure that we had everything that we required. The home was nicely laid out and well stocked with dishes, glasses, pots, pans, etc. The area is a nice quiet neighbourhood and is close to all amenities and shopping. The Realtor that we booked through was very prompt and professional. We would definitely return to this home. Terry and all.

We stayed the month of February and enjoyed escaping part of a horrible winter. We brought our boat and for convenience kept at Stickney Pt Marina. Plenty of space and everything works! Check out the German deli on rt 41.

A July to Rememer!
What a great vacation home in Sarasota! My husband and I along with our daughter, son-in-law and their 3 children arrived and were thrilled with such a wonderful home to stay in during our vacation. Villa Colleen pictures on the website are just like the home. It was well furnished with everything we needed and more. The pool was a major plus and we all enjoyed it every day. The home is close to several beautiful beaches (our fav was Siesta Key) but we also visited Lido and Turtle beach. There were beach chairs, beach towels and umbrella waiting for us - they thought of everything for convenience! We were close to -- Shopping, Food, Entertainment, Fishing, Medical, etc. There were no traffic issues and the neighborhood was quiet and easy to maneuver. The home was so comfortable - we truly felt like we were "home" while we were there. We had hoped that our son & daughter-in-law could join us - there would have been plenty of room but they missed out this year. We certainly recommend this property and hope to visit again ourselves sometime. Five stars were not enough for this rating. Thanks Henry for allowing us to stay in your home! Sabine was great too and had a welcome snack for our family upon arrival. Wonderful trip!!

Our month in a mansion !
From the moment I arrived I felt at home. A few lights were left on to welcome us as well as snacks and wine. Everything is exactly as described on website and all pictures are up to date. Big spacious home gives everyone personal space when needed. Fully stocked, even all you could need for a trip to the beach. All kinds of info, pamphlets, maps. Quiet neighborhood with friendly people, great for long, leisurely walks and even beautiful sunsets close by. Great pool, well maintained. Screened in backyard is ideal, no insects or bugs. Very central area, good driving, easy to get around. Within an hour from Tampa, Fort Myers, St Pete's. Lots to see and do. Siesta Key beach is the best I've seen so far, close by about 15mins drive. Henry was very attentive to our needs and checked in with us periodictly to make sure all was to our liking. Very courteous, generous and helpful. Both Henry and Sabine are friendly, easy going and aim to please. Would definitely recommend this home to everyone. Hopefully I can return again in the future. Thank you for making our stay comfortable and perfect. Linda and the girls Northern Ontario, Canada

perfekter Aufenthalt
Liebe Familie Biendl, wir haben zu Zweit 2 wunderschöne Wochen in Ihrem Haus verbracht. Alles war vom ersten bis zum letzten Tag perfekt. Schweren Herzens müssen wir übermorgen unseren Rückflug ins kalte Bayern antreten. Aber so wie Sie uns kennen, werden wir sicherlich nicht das letzte Mal hier gewesen sein. Unser Tip: Wer am Samstag Abend gerne Live-Musik in einer urigen Westernbar erleben möchte, dem empfehlen wir den "White Buffalo Saloon" in der McIntosh Rd., ca. 100 m links, wenn man die Clark Rd. auswärts fährt. Herzliche Grüße Agnes & Gerhard

Great Location and Great House
When we arrive the house was very clean and orderly. We had called and asked if there was a crock pot in the house and were told there was not; however, when we arrived there was a brand new one sitting on the kitchen counter. The house is centrally located to everything you would want to do in Sarasota. A Publix grocery store, a Target, a CVS, a Kohls, and a Subway are less than a mile from the house.The house has a solar heated pool and the temperature of the water was very comfortable and we enjoy spending time around the pool. We ate all our meals outdoors in the screened in area surrounding the pool. There are very few houses in Sarasota that have three masters with king size beds like this house. The kitchen was well stocked. The beds were very comfortable. This was our fourth year in Sarasota and this was the best house we have had. He plan to return to Sarasota next February and have rented this house for our stay.

Great family vacation rental!!!
We absolutely loved our month at Villa Colleen. With the three king beds all with their own bathrooms it was perfect for my sisters and I. The home has everything anyone could need! From plenty of beachtowels to beach chairs ,umbrellas ,canopies , coolers,you name it it is there. We spent many days by the beautiful sparkling pool and with the solar heat the water was very warm ! They even left us a bucket with car wash soap and a sponge since we drove 1500 miles with three different cars ! The home is in a great neighborhood and close to many stores, restaurants shops etc. siesta keys beach is close by and is absolutely beautiful. The whitest sand you could ever see ! The owners go above and beyond to make sure you have everything you need. The water heater started to leak and the plumber was there to replace it that very day. They also have four new bikes that you can cruise the neighborhood or even take them to the legacy trail which runs 20+ miles. The backyard is lit beautifully at night and very private… Basically the backyard is screened in and you can leave all three patio doors open to enjoy the tropical Florida air ! So pack a small bag and your sunscreen because that’s basically all you will need .
