The space
Escape the hustle and bustle of everyday life in this artfully appointed 1 bedroom/1 bath apartment inspired by the calming tropical colors and textures of nature. Step through the private entrance into the well-appointed apartment featuring a compact kitchen offering all the accouterments to make a meal at home, from coffee maker to microwave, cookware to cocktail glasses, and cutlery to slice into fresh limes for your Florida inspired cocktail! An open concept living area provides enough space to relax and unwind or unfurl your yoga mat for morning stretching and meditation. Free Wifi is provided, along with flat-screen televisions in the living room, hosting streaming premium channels for your enjoyment. Sleep in the peaceful cocoon of your bedroom, tucked into a quiet corner with a queen bed offering all-natural linens and subdued lighting, ensuring a quiet, restful stay.

Just outside the French doors is a sparkling semi-private pool with a covered patio and island-inspired lounge that are shared with only one other unit. The outdoor kitchen with gas grill and dining area with seating for six makes the perfect setting for an evening of dining al fresco. When you're not at Siesta beach or exploring the wonders of Sarasota, you'll enjoy the large sparkling pool with multiple seating areas, ideal for soaking up the Florida sun or tucking under the shaded lounger with a good book or an afternoon siesta. Pool toys and towels are provided for your use, as well as coolers and beach chairs you're welcome to use at the beach. In the evening, you're invited to enjoy the fire pit located in the yard where you can reminisce about your day while gazing into the crackling fire or making S'mores.

Where you’ll be

Sarasota, Florida, United States

When heading out for a day or night on the town, there's always somewhere great to explore just a short distance from Zen Den. On US41/Tamiami Trail, just north of the turnoff to the neighborhood is the Philippi Mansion grounds, where every Wednesday morning during the cooler months the Phillippi Framer's Market offers fresh fruits and vegetables, Amish Donuts, food trucks, local artesian crafts, and foodstuffs.

If you're looking to dine out, there are some highly acclaimed restaurants within walking distance of Zen Den. Sardinia Italian Restaurant and Isan Thai are both open for dinner and so close you drove past them on your way to Zen Den! Also just around the corner is Simon's Coffee House, a great place for breakfast and lunch. Just a short drive further north, on the east side of Tamiami Trail is the Phillippi Creek Restaurant and Oyster Bar, a great spot to enjoy fresh seafood either inside in the air conditioning or outside at one of the picnic tables lining the waterfront of Phillippi Creek.

Also on Tamiami Trail, 1.5 miles north from Zen Den, is the Landings Shopping Center, with a large Publix Grocery Store, a Starbucks, and a number of locally-owned restaurants including DaRuma Japanese Steakhouse and Sushi Bar, OfKors Donuts and Bakery, Apollonia Greek Restaurant, Corkscrew Deli, and several others.

If you head south, just a mile down Tamiami Trail is the Stickney Point Bridge, which takes you to Siesta Key. There you’ll find Daiquiri Deck, Spearfish Grill, Coconuts, and award-winning Capt Curt’s Crab and Oyster Bar. If you’d like a tropical drink fresh off the beach, stop by Capt. Curt's outdoor bar - Sniki Tiki. Further south is the Toasted Mango Café (great for breakfast) or if you'd like to cook at the apartment, pick up some fresh fish at Big Water Fish Market. For date night, you can’t go wrong driving towards the southern tip of Siesta Key for romantic bayside dining at Ophelia's on the Bay. If you like French food, stop by Miguel's but save room for one of their tableside desserts!

If you want to stay on the mainland, less than a mile from Zen Den on the west side of Tamiami Trail is a great new steakhouse called GrillSmith, a scratch restaurant with a varied menu and a full bar. On the east side of Tamiami Trail, you'll find Pietro's Italian Restaurant, where you're sure to be spoiled, Pho 101 Noodle House, and a Dunkin Donuts.

There are also a number of restaurants in the shopping plaza on the southwest corner of Stickney Point. There you'll find restaurants including Plaza Mexico, Carrabba’s Italian Grill, and Abel’s Ice Cream. If you stay on Tamiami Trail past Stickney Point Road you'll find Gecko’s Grill & Pub (an indoor and outdoor sports bar so guys won’t miss the big game) and Ruth Chris Steak House. So there is a little bit of everything within a mile or so from Zen Den.

Just enter the name of any of these restaurants into your mobile phone's search and you'll find easy directions to get there. Enjoy!
