The house has a comfortable layout for entertaining. Two master suites are on opposite ends of the house. A new gourmet kitchen is in the middle of the house. It is open with a pass through to see everything including the pool. In the Florida room a long table easily pulls out from the wall to seat 10 -12 guests for that special meal. The house contains all new contemporary furnishings for your vacation comfort. Gulf Gates and the Sarasota Pavilion is through a locked gate in the privacy fence, behind the home.
We have been married since 1967 and have one special daughter and son in law who light up our lives. We looked for a great beach to spend leasure time and know we had found in when we stepped out on the white, fine sand of Siesta Key. Wow! Sarasota clenched the deal with all the culture and amenities it has to offer. Ernie would like to live there and play music at the local beachside restaurants. We have always loved the beach and were property owners on Emerald Isle, North Carolina and loved going there with family and friends for vacations and having renters enjoy the beach and our home as we had. We love to imagine other happy families enjoying the long table in the Florida Room and the pool making wonderful vacation memories.

Sarasota weather is so wonderful most of the year with the cool summer breeze. In the winter it is a ray of sunshine to rejuvenate in after so much dark, cold ice and snow.
This home is unique in that it is located on a quiet dead end street. It is private but its proximity to shopping, restaurants, and entertainment mean a car is not necessary. Go out the back gate in the privacy fence and you come out in the Gulf Gate Shopping and Dining District. This is a neighborhood of one-story stores, wonderful international restaurants, and clubs and gift shops for all ages. At night this area becomes a hot spot and fills up with eaters, drinkers and live music lovers, a fun spot to be near for six nights a week. The Sarasota Pavilion shopping complex is also right there with a Bealls, Ross, Old Navy, Marshalls, Michael’s Crafts, Books-a-Million, Steinmart, a Publix supermarket and many more including Big Chain Restaurants all near the intersection of Stickney Point and Tamiami Trail. Cross this intersection and go down the causeway to get to one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. It is less than two miles to Siesta Key. Two bicycles are provided free for your use.
My family of eight just returned from our stay in Sarasota and the listing A Ray of Sunshine. We had never been to the area before and really didn't know what to expect and if we had picked a good place to stay or not. I'm happy to report that the property was exactly as advertised, looked just like the pictures, and was clean and well kept. The property manager contacted us to make sure everything was to our satisfaction, and was very helpful in recommending local restaurants and things to do. We had a great time - the beach is only minutes away and we enjoyed the delicious bakery, which is lcoated literally just behind the property - an easy stroll for morning coffee, delicious quiche and pastry. With four bedrooms, three bathrooms, a big kitchen and dining room table, there was plenty of room for everyone. I would recommend this property to anyone looking for a quiet, clean place to stay while in Sarasota.
We rented the house for a family wedding in Sarasota. It was so comfortable and nice. We loved the pool and all the places to relax. We only stayed 3 days but wished we were staying longer.
Had a amazing stay home was lovely great size,very clean ,loads of equipment .Pool area was lovely out the back gate led to loads of local shops bars and the lovely bakery .The beach ten mins r so drive was to die for had a amazing stay and owners so lovely to deal with
The house is in a great location about 5 minutes from the beach. We had 7 (3 children) in our party and had more than enough room. Everything about our stay was terrific! We look forward to coming back next year!
We had two great weeks at this home , the house is spotless , the beds comfortable, the pool warm and welcoming, the location peaceful but very convenient for local restaurants and bars and 7 to 10 minutes from the beach , Linda and Donna the managing agent were both a delight to deal with , I would happily recommend this property to anyone
Really enjoyed our week at this lovely property. The villa was well equipped and nice that it had a few extras - washing up liquid, handwash, soap etc all provided. The pool was lovely and we really enjoyed spending time there. Good to have access via the back to make walking to restaurants and the mall very convenient. A great base to explore the area with lots going on nearby whilst still benefiting from a quiet private position. Would recommend for a family get away.
Miles and miles of beautiful beaches. The famous Siesta Key is one of the most beautiful in the world and voted #1 in USA. So many shops and wonderful restaurants, music and culture things to do and see. Sarasota has small town charm with big city attractions and Museums and entertainment.
