Situated south of Tampa on Florida’s Gulf Coast, Sarasota is the gateway to miles of beaches with fine sand and shallow waters, while inland you’ll find a number of prestigious cultural institutions dotted around the city. More than enough, indeed, to attract large numbers of visitors here every year, including many who come for longer spells and may want to find a short-term let for their stay. Here are three online resources for seeking out rental properties in Sarasota.


Booking.com are our number one choice for sourcing furnished short stay apartment rentals in Sarasota for periods of anything from a few days up to a fortnight.

They also offer a Best Price Guarantee and there’s a comprehensive customer reviews section under each property so you can check out what previous guests have to say.
