Clean, comfortable and new. Pinky is a one bedroom cottage, sleeping two guests. It features a Beautiful Florida Native Species Garden, plus all the comforts and amenities you’d expect from a vacation cottage: kitchen with stainless steel appliances, Weber grill, off-street parking, WiFi Internet, local over-the-air TV and access to NetFlix.

The Cottage Space

The cottage is open-plan, bright and spacious, with 850 sq.ft of living space. The living room is furnished with two comfy armchairs, a recliner and a wall-mounted HDTV. The dining table seats four guests and the fully equipped modern kitchen has all you need to prepare daily meals. 

Every day during your vacation should end with a good night’s sleep and that’s just what you’ll get in our Queen sized bed. There is a 40″ HDTV for lazy evenings in bed and sliding doors that lead out to the rear patio.

Our bathroom was renovated in 2017 with tiled flooring and a large walk-in shower.

The Pinkman cottage features a whole house charcoal water filtration/softening system that reduces particulates, contaminants and chlorine and makes our tap water sparkling clean!

Children welcome, but no pets please!

For your enjoyment

Love the life outdoors during your stay at Sarasota Bay. There is an outdoor grill at your disposal. Cook and dine outside on our decked patio, or in the garden.

For indoor entertainment there is a stack of DVDs and games for your enjoyment. Plus, with your home subscription, you can access your favorite services like Amazon TV and NetFlix through our TV.

Interaction with guests

Guests can self check in… we have assigned 4 digit lock codes that we remotely configure. But if we’re in the neighborhood, we’ll come and greet you personally. A property manager is always on hand if you need anything during your stay.

Additional Information

Pinkman Cottage is located at Indian Beach, one of the oldest neighborhoods in Sarasota, where multi-million dollar estates sit side-by-side with modest cottages. Just 200 yards from the cottage you can enjoy dramatic sunset views of Sarasota Bay.

This is a walking/biking neighborhood where two streets over there’s a marked route for pedestrians and cyclists guiding you to all of the local attractions: museums, theater, gardens and sports facilities.

Downtown Sarasota is a 5-minute drive or an easy 30-minute walk with restaurants, shopping, and entertainment all nearby. Lido Beach is a 15-minute drive and Siesta Beach (ranked “the World’s Best Beach”), is only 25 minutes away.

We Are Herb & Darla

Hosts Herb and Darla

Darla and I have lived in Sarasota for many years and have always loved the unique character of Indian Beach for its mix of old and new…and proximity to Sarasota Bay. We looked for a while but couldn’t find the right match. Finally, in the Spring of 2013, we found a restored 1920s American Four Square craftsman style home. In late 2015 the property next door (with two cottages on it) became available. We saw potential there and began 16 months of landscaping and renovation — much more than we’d planned!

By the Spring of 2017 we started hosting our friends as “trial run” guests and now “Pinkman” and “Scruffy” are ready for your visit!

We’re On Hand If You Need Us

Our 4 digit lock codes let you check-in when it’s convenient for you. If we’re in the neighborhood we’ll stop by to welcome you to the cottage.

If you need anything during your stay, there is always someone available to address your needs
