    5 star review  We looked for an assisted living facility for several months when a family friend referred us to someone familiar with senior living. She provided us a list, and at the top was Aravilla of Sarasota. By far, this was the most active of the communities we had visited. It is different from other places we had seen. The people that lived there were friendly, enthusiastic, and even engaged us in conversation. Even patients in the Memory Care unit were active and also spoke highly about this place. This was something that we had not seen. Thus far, everything is going flawlessly with the move-in. If you are looking for assisted living or memory care in the Sarasota area, I would highly recommend checking this place out.

    5 star review  Our family feels blessed to have found our mom the perfect home for this time in her life. She is quite happy, which means we are happy! The staff is very loving and caring; she enjoys a wide variety of activities as well as a weekly outing for lunch with the residents; the Mediterranean style food served is homemade, which she enjoys very much. We are grateful for Jim Soper who had to vision to build such a place for our loved ones who suffer with memory issues, as well as to the management team for their open door policy. Knowing she is safe and well cared for is priceless.

    5 star review  The staff at Aravilla have been very responsive whenever I have a question or need for my father who has been there since late February. They have followed the mandates and guidelines due to the Covid-19 virus to keep everyone safe. I appreciate all they have done and continue to do.

    5 star review  Patty and Jen took excellent care in providing the best possible options for my Father. Aravilla is the best Assisted Living facility in the greater Sarasota area! (I looked at 6 others). It feels like a beautiful hotel with all of the amenities of a home environment and more. Beautiful pool, plenty of social activities. Fabulous tv lounge with bar like area for socializing. Highly recommend Aravilla for your loved one.

    5 star review  This is Kay, not, as the header indicates Richard...! He of course tells me he wants to come home. He appears to be content and I always get a great smile. So I do miss him but with the great staff and care, Aravilla is doing a super job, just to keep him smiling .

    thumb Richard Foellmer

    5 star review  My elderly mother has been a resident at Aravilla since November, 2019. I can't say enough wonderful things about it. It is a beautiful, inviting and comfortable environment. The moment you walk in you can feel the difference with other places - in terms of community, cheerfulness and activity. The administrators, nursing staff, activities director, maintenance staff and food staff, are all caring and professional. They love the residents and are always available to talk to family members. This is especially important to me as I live far away in NYC. The most recent notable example of their level of care has been their superlative response to the Covid pandemic. I go to sleep every night confident that my mother is in good hands. As you can see, I highly recommend Aravilla!!
