Thank you so much to everyone who replied to my question. I really appreciate the information
I will look into those areas that were suggested. I have been looking at Craig's List, but have heard that you can't trust the information on there.

Thank again.

Hi rosie,

I,ve moved from london (uk) with my wife to be near her mother in sarasota and here's what i recommend.

1. Stay away from Newton and Vamo

2. Gulf gate can be a bit pricey but it's a very pretty and safe neighbourhood. It's close to shopping areas, close to the beach and has a respectful neighbourhood vibe.

Websites like trulia.com are great but just be careful of the property being to good to be true as there are scams on there sometimes.

We have just found a great place in the gulf gate area and are very happy.

Best wishes

I have a great two bedroom condo in a very safe and convenient area (right by downtown Sarasota) and tons of amenities. it is in Central Park II. Please take a look here:

Or give me a call for a viewing.

I'm sorry, but I have to say that the response you gave, Tammy, was not at all what OP was asking for. I'm not a realtor, but your response probably should have included, oh I don't know, actual information about areas that might best suit a senior woman looking to rent.
