About Nada, the owner of the property

Being Snowbirds ourselves, we did comprehensive research on Southern destinations where we felt would be most comfortable and exciting for us to vacation away from the cold winter months in Canada. We had already vacationed in California, New Mexico, Arizona, Panama, Costa Rica, Mexico, and the Dominican Republic, and finally found ourselves mesmerized with the beaches and amenities that Sarasota offers to vacationers.

Nada, the owner of the property purchased this house in 2012

Why Nada, the owner of the property chose Sarasota

We decided to craft a Beach House in Sarasota Gulf Gate because of it's charming tranquility, as well as it's close proximity to Siesta Key Beach. We wanted to have a vacation home that would be relaxing and enjoyable, and at the same time, give us that 'away from it all' feeling. It took us some time to remodel an exquisite property and to construct and include a beautiful and expansive Roman swimming pool on our large patio.

We are thrilled with our Gulf Gate Beach House as a family and we are excited to share our joys and passion for it with you too! See you there! And remember, ‘Life is Good’

What makes this house unique

We were attracted by a beautiful view from the living room on the spacious and tropical looking backyard. We immediately imagined a large swiming pool and spa right in the middle of it. Our dream came true the following year when we built a nice sundeck and our private, Roman-shaped swimming pool, where we spend our most enjoyable moments.

The villa with everything

  • 5 of 5

The villa is in a very quiet, smart neighbourhood but only a 5 -10 minute walk to shops, a supermarket and great restaurants. 10 minutes to Siesta Key beach (voted no1 in USA). There is a large pool and covered area we used every day. The bed was one of the most comfortable we've experienced, a tv in every room and every facility you could want. We had a lovely welcome form the property manager when we arrived and thoroughly recommend the villa.

Gulf Gate house

  • 1 of 5

Negatives

I was very disappointed with the house. It was very small and the furniture was not comfortable. Friends stayed at the same time in another house in Gulf Gate and it was almost double the size for the same.price. It had a quieter backyard with a pond. The heating cost for their pool for 2 weeks was $120.00 where ours was $300.00. Needless to say we didn't pay the extra for heating the pool. We went to our friends instead.

Kitchen is so small only 1 person can work in it. There is no pantry space, so had to put bread and crackers on the counters. Very limited counter space.

Very disappointed and would never stay there again.

Positives

Very comfortable beds.

Maria was very nice

Clean, well maintained, lovely property 🌴, In a great location!

  • 5 of 5

I loved this vacation home! 🌴The pool and lanai made the place! The pool was heared by solar panels and was like bathwater in April/May. The kitchen is well equipped. The location was so covenient to many beautiful beaches⛱, restaurants, and a short ride to any where you wanted to go. An easy walk also to restaurants, church, shopping center and located in a nice quiet neighborhood.

We would definitely recommend the rental which feels like your home while you are there😊

Nice quiet vacation

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I just returned from 2 weeks stay at this property, The house was very clean, kitchen was well stocked and there are more than enough towels and linens. Perfect location for stores, shopping, and the beach. Beach chairs, umbrellas, etc., were supplied. Owners supplied laundry detergent, cleaning supplies, dishwasher detergent, etc., which was a nice touch. Pool area is large and lania very comfortable and gas grill is awesome! . We did hear the neighbors dog barking occasionally, but it was not excessive. Outdoor area was pretty quiet. Master bedroom bed was comfortable, but the bathroom is very small. We ended up using the shower/tub in the hallway bath. No big deal, since it was just my husband and I. However, if you are a light sleeper, the A/C mounted outside the bedrooms may keep you awake when the compressor turns on!

We were excited when about riding bikes around the neighbor, but was very disappointed when I could not adjust the seat height on the women's bike. I found tools in the garage to try and fix the problem, but realized others had the same issue because the bolt was stripped and I was unable to fix the problem. So unless you are under 5 feet, it is physically impossible to ride the bike! Please switch out the bike seat to an adjustable one like on the men's bike. This was very disappointing. We had a few issues during our stay, but were able to fix them ourselves.

I would return to this property in the future.

This property is beautifully maintained and close to where we wanted to be in the Sarasota area. We contracted for a six week stay, but a family emergency forced us to leave a week early. We used the spa on an almost daily basis, when we returned from the beach. Close to all the area amenities. Hope we can return some day.
