Hi Joseph,

I am an avid boater myself and have a boat at Marina Jacks. If you still need help with a rental please let me know. Finding something in your price range downtown near the marina will be a challenge. If you are willing to drive 10-15 min though you will get a lot more for your money.

Let me know, and happy sailing.

I am relocating to Sarasota next month for work.

I am looking for an annual rental to lease for a year (unfurnished. 1 or 2 brm, it's just me.... but I work from home some and a second bedroom/office is good.

I am a recreational sailor and I will be at Marina Jacks helping run charters for a friend of mine most evenings after work and on weekends so I was looking for something close to the Marina.

$750 /month to $950/month is the price range I'm looking for.

I will be in Sarasota Wednesday and Thursday of this week looking for housing.

Best Regards,

Joseph Strickland

Hi Joseph! This questions is still important due to the scarcity in Sarasota for "great locations + great rate" in Sarasota.
Certainly -- by now you may have chosen something to buy.
But for folks looking to move and get help:
1. contact a couple of top notch Realtor's -- choose 1
2. examine the listed and non-mls listed choices
3. prepare to decide quickly.

There are unusual opportunities through your friends and family network. Sarasota is such a friendly town -- we will all be happy to see you successful.
Sunny Regards, Sandra

Joseph Stickland, asking for something close to the marina, as a rental? (your question was posted in rentals). You would have to provided additional information to obtain any substantive answers. Like annual, seasonal, move in when, rent per month etc.

You could check with the yacht brokers and see if there are any boats in the marina seeking a tenant. It would be rare but possible. You could also consider purchasing / renting a dock and live on the boat. Check out Longboat Key Moorings.

The snowbird season has begun and finding a rental in this area will be challenging. Many of the smaller units are contracted by the arts community for their actors, singers and performers during the season. These are contracted during the summer months.

The remaining units around the marina will carry short term season rental rates. Some many be age restricted. If living by a marina is your requirement, then there are other marinas north and south of downtown Sarasota that may offer housing at this late date.

If you are looking for a residence with a dock, please advise of length, beam and draft and target price range. There are condos as well as single family homes which have dockage to accommodate vessels up to 30 ft. Also, furnished or unfirnished?
