Gulf Gate Woods House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

The house is situated in the quiet upscale neighborhood of Gulf Gate Woods only a five minute drive to Siesta Key’s world famous beaches. It is close to everything to suit all tastes; water sports, shopping, restaurants galore, nature parks, galleries and much more. The garden is beautifully landscaped with many tropical plants. The interior is newly furnished and renovated with many large windows to capture the Floridian sunshine. There is a beautifully decorated formal dining room and separate living room with comfy leather couches and flat screen cable TV and Wifi throughout the home. The master bedroom has a flat screen cable TV as well. The master bedroom has a dressing room as well as a large walk in closet. Central air and heat and fans in all of the rooms will keep you comfortable year round. The heated pool, in a completely screened lanai, is right off the sunny Florida/family room. The many large windows and wonderful floor plan add to the airiness of the home. The kitchen is newly renovated with granite counter tops, stainless steel appliances and has a separate eating area. The formal dining room has seating for eight with additional leaves for the table to seat ten. There are three spacious bedrooms which accommodate sleeping for eight; very comfortable mattresses. The garden and pool are professionally cared for. FIOS cable TV and WIFI and the first $150 of electricity are paid for by us. Professional cleaning of the house when you leave is $150. You can, at your expense, have the cleaning done for you as often as you like at your expense for a much lower fee than the final cleaning. After all, it is your vacation.

The home’s comfort, style and convenience and our desire to build relationships with people who will want to come back again and again all contribute to give you a vacation home that you will want to return to. We can't wait to go back ourselves!

Keywords: Modern home, beautifully decorated, great sun exposed heated pool, quiet area yet close to everything; beaches, restaurants, shopping, entertainment for kids and adults alike.

About Ita Mond

My husband and I live in Maryland but we've always been drawn to beach vacations near Caribbean-like seas and white sand beaches. We have eight children,four boys and four girls. Most are married now (too many cute grandchildren to count-our kids must have loved growing up in a large family) and two are still home getting ready to go off on their own too. We have always been a very close knit family and have created many beautiful memories together traveling as much as we could with our big brood, so we know what creating memories is all about. We see our married children doing much the same with their beautiful families. And we continue to travel by ourselves and with each family to continue the feeling and to build closeness with our grandkids too. When we vacationed in Sarasota we found it to be ideal; near the ocean with Caribbean-like waters, quiet white sand beaches, yet close to to everything. We decided to buy a home there to have a place of our own in a wonderful city that has so much to offer. It also makes it much easier to invite some of our kids and grandkids to spend time with us after we've had some 'alone' time too. This was the best investment we could have ever made for all of us.

Ita Mond purchased this house in 2011

Why Ita Mond chose Florida

Our family vacationed in Sarasota and we fell in love with it and its surroundings. The house is located in an area that is both quiet and private yet close to everything a couple or a family would love to do on vacation.

What makes this house unique

The house is bright, sunny and airy; a wonderful layout. The beautiful and very private heated pool can be used year round, even at night for star gazing. The neighborhood is quiet, well kept with no wires in sight since they are underground. All the houses have tile roofs which add an air of elegance to the neighborhood. The roads are quiet for enjoyable bike riding. Drinking coffee in the screened lanai after a quiet or rigorous morning walk, before the action of the day begins or at the end of a thoroughly enjoyable day, is one of life's great pleasures in this special bright and roomy home.

The Best Florida House Ever!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the house in the summer of 2015 and loved every minute of it! From the beautiful, tropical decor to the spacious bedrooms and kitchen, the gorgeous (heated!) pool and grounds and all the details big and small that the owners have taken care of to their utmost. Anything you need for a great family vacation is here, including a BBQ grill, floats for the pool, lounge chairs, an overwhelming assortment of dishes and pots, towels, linen and there's wifi as well with great reception anywhere in the house. The outdoor patio with table and chairs as well as the lanai area by the pool with plenty of seating gives you a choice of where you can choose to relax! Indoors as well there are two living areas with comfortable seating and floor space for teh kids to play as well. In a nutshell: a perfect vacation home!

Wonderful Home, Wonderful Setting

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was February and March of 2014. This is our second season here. We were one of the first to rent and right from the 1st day we stepped into the home we fell in love with it. The pictures on the web site don't truly tell the entire picture. It is decorated so tastefully and comfortably. The homeowners have maintained the property impeccably and each year have improved and updated it.

We so enjoy the enclosed pool and the early morning sun in the lani makes for a cheerful

place to start the day with breakfast. We enjoy the beaches and culture of the Sarasota area and of course the golfing which is right across the street from the home. Just the perfect place to spend as we do, two months or just a week. We are so looking forward to our next stay and truly call this home "Our Home Away From Home".

Thank you Jimmy and Ita for making our stay so enjoyable.

Great for families!

  • 4 of 5

This house was very spacious and open! We used that pool every day, even after the beach. The beach is a short drive away, and there are restaurants nearby. We preferred to purchase groceries and cook in the great kitchen! The owner is very nice, response, and accommodating! Would definitely recommend.

Great choice!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house in July 2012 and loved it. Lots of space, very nice decoration and great layout: the master bedroom and other bedrooms are on opposite side of the house. Fantastic if you travel with teenageers. We also loved the kitchen and dinette area (with view on the pool when the kids are in the pool), wifi everywhere in the house as well as outdoor on the patio. The house is located in a very nice and very quiet neighbourhood. It's a very short drive to Siesta beach (not more than 10 minutes) and it's also very close to the mall and supermarkets. In a nutshell: we will rent again if we go back to Sarasota!
