Great Property in a super location
5/5 stars
The unit has absolutely everything you’d need for your beach vacation. The kitchen is very well equipped with lovely plates and silver ware and plenty of cookware should you need. There’s even a kettle which is super important for us Brits . Its location in the complex is perfect . We experienced no noise issues at all but there can be some noise from neighbours if they are especially heavy footed or loud. The King bed is super comfy. The AC worked well and the showers are all very clean and in great working order . The size is perfect and the unit is bright , airy and cosy . It’s really homely and comfortable. New beach chairs were supplied very promptly when we discussed the old ones being a bit past their usefulness . The team at iTrip were amazing and helpful. We are so pleased to have found this unit and have already booked next year to return to same one.

Florida-inspired condo
5/5 stars
The condo is bright, updated, and has very pleasant decor. We loved sitting on our little screened lanai with its courtyard view and easy pool access. The proximity to St. Armand’s Circle is a plus. I Trip was very responsive to a couple of minor issues.

You Will Love This Place!!!
5/5 stars
Such a perfect place in all the ways that make a vacation special. The location is so close to ALL the great places St. Armand’s Circle offers, the beach is super close with the best sand, the beds were comfy- loved the beach chairs and small cooler- all the touches were thoughtful and the pool area was so clean and right off the back porch. You will love this place!!!

Special Place
4/5 stars
1. Parking polls between designated spots are difficult to maneuver. 2. Beds in the second bedroom are very noisy and need new mattresses. 3. Location to St. Armand’s circle is terrific. Place could use a simple toaster. We never found ice cube trays or a simple box of tissues. 4. Generally speaking it is a wonderful unit.
- Louis
Ideal vacation rental at St Armand's Circle
5/5 stars
Love this apartment, it has everything - location just steps from the restaurants and shops of St Armands; spacious, clean, well equipped and maintained; comfortable beds and furniture; screened porch with direct access to garden and pool. The people at iTrip were great to deal with, very responsive to queries. We've rented it before and certainly plan to do so again.

Had a great time at the condo at Kingston Arms. Clean, roomy, and close to everything you need...great bars, restaurants, and of course, the beach. Management company was fabulous, from well before arrival until after check-out. They followed up with us regularly to check if we needed anything. Just an overall enjoyable week in Sarasota.
