Unique Vacation Homes/Rentals

Our most recent acquisition is a plot of land containing 3 historic homes in Sarasota, FL – the legendary Boathouse, Lighthouse and white cottage.  The landmarks were once owned by Arthur Rowe, captain of John Ringling’s yachts (of Ringling Bros. Circus).  To accurately reflect ocean living, Captain Rowe had the Boat and Light house homes designed and built by famous shipbuilder Oliver Blackburn in 1933.  The Boat and Light houses have since received their historical designation from the City of Sarasota.  All 3 homes have recently been renovated and are now available as fully furnished rentals – event, vacation, seasonal or long-term.

At any of our homes, you are within walking distance of the gorgeous bay, eclectic shops, dining and theater, and just a few minutes drive to Florida’s famous beaches.  Experience why we call it “The Sarasota Good Life”!
