About Winnie Williams

Hi, this photo is of me and my daughter just hanging round the kitchen together. I am a retired realtor and an active property manager. I own ten other properties in Iowa and love to travel in my 'spare' time. She is a lawyer in Iowa and keeps me grounded.

Winnie Williams purchased this condo in 1990

Why Winnie Williams chose Florida South Central Gulf Coast

I have visited every inch of Florida and my family has owned property for three generations. I searched for five years for the perfect place in the perfect location. It was love at first sight for me. The Siesta Key Beach is breath taking. The condo in Gulf Gate Woods gets me away from the noise of the tourist attractions in just a few minutes. I was very lucky to find this place and I am proud to offer it to others to enjoy when I am not there myself.

What makes this condo unique

I love to sit and look out the large lanai windows and watch the tree tops. This is a peaceful, kind of hidden spot.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We love the condo, we’ve been there several times and we’ve never had any problems. Winnie has always been very friendly and very helpful. Overall the condo is very clean, well maintained and nicely decorated. There are 2 bedrooms. The master bedroom has a kingsize bed which is very comfortable. It has it’s own walk-in closet and ensuite bathroom. The second bedroom has 2 twin beds and it’s own bathroom. The kitchen is very modern and well stocked with everything you could possibly need. There is also a very comfortable living and dining area.

There is a pool which most of the time we have to ourselves. The condo is located in a very quiet subdivision about a 5-7 minute car ride to Siesta Key Beach. There’s a small executive 27 hole golf course right across the street. There’s a huge selection of restaurants, grocery stores and malls close by to choose from and there’s a large outlet mall about 40 minutes away.

I’ve recommended the condo to several of our friends, we consider it our Florida home away from home.

Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a month in this condo starting in the middle of March 2016. It was perfect for us. The condo is very clean, roomy and the screened in lanai is the perfect spot for morning coffee. The kitchen is very well stocked. Seriously, every kitchen thing you want is there to use.

The bathroom showers have great water pressure and big, fluffy towels. The master bedroom has a very comfortable king size bed and a large walk in closet. This home has everything you will need. Beach umbrellas, beach chairs, mats, towels and even big floppy hats. I needed a needle and thread one day and looked around and found a sewing kit.

We loved the quiet location. After spending most days doing touristy things or being at the beach (there is so much to do and see in the area), it was nice to come home to a quiet neighborhood. We took lovely evening walks through the neighborhood with sidewalks (our hometown does not have sidewalks so that was a bonus for us). The pool is not heated but was warm enough to swim in by the end of March. The condo is on the second floor but there is an elevator if you are a person who has trouble with stairs. The condo itself is all one level. I highly recommend this home to anyone.

The owner is great to work with. Winnie answers communications quickly and is simply a delightful person.

A Great Home-Away-from-Home

  • 5 of 5

The location was great and made it easy to get to anywhere. The condo was clean and well taken care of and the kitchen was well stocked with anything we wanted. We loved the Florida colors of the décor--felt like a resort! The building itself was clean and the pool area was nice but the furniture out there could be updated. The pool was too cold to swim in (January) but we went poolside to catch some sun. Winnie was very helpful and considerate and we would recommend this property to anyone. My husband and I hope to return.

Comfortable/relaxing stay in Sarasota

  • 4 of 5

The condo was clean and comfortable. The space we had was more than adequate for our stay in Sarasota We liked the location which was quiet and close to Siesta Keys beach plus to the many golf courses around the area. We never did get a chance to use the pool. I would recommend this property to a friend or relative,.

this a hidden treasure

  • 4 of 5

this is our third year here and we enjoyed it immensely. very quiet area with good access to shopping and restaurants of all types. the condo is clean, comfortable and is well appointed having everything you will need to stay indefinitely. we loved the pool and were often the only people using it. well suited to 55+ vacationers. there is a golf course less then a few hundred feet away. the owner was quick to respond to any questions or concerns, there is an elevator which proved to very useful to move things in and out of the condo. best kept secret in sarasota.

Good for a First Experience in Sarasota

  • 4 of 5

Overall this was a nice experience. Main point is that you'd have to be a bird to get to Siesta Key in 5 minutes. Depending on the day/time, it took considerably longer to get there or anywhere. Tamiami Trail is what it is! Fairly comfortable condo, second bedroom a bit tight. Owner very helpful and conscientious.

Great place to enjoy Sarasota's best

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I along with our 2 daughter have been staying at this condo for our summer vacation for the past 7 years and we have always enjoyed it. The unit has everything you need to live comfortably and is conveniently located. Both the condo and the building are well-maintained and kept clean. We highly recommend it.

Notes:
Quiet away from the noise and hustle bustle of 'tourist' hype. A definite get away from it all place yet close enough to 'go to' it all in a short 5 minute drive over the bridge.Unless you get caught at a long light on US 41... If you like to go home and be quiet but be close enough to have it all when you want, then this is definitely a wonderful place for you. Great references. Condo has everything you need,,,,EVERYTHING!! Many previous tenants have tried to leave reviews for me but cannot get them to load on the site. I will give you previous tenants email addresses who agree to chat with you via email about this lovely condo.
