About Linda Ertel or Ernie Ertel

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.

Linda Ertel or Ernie Ertel purchased this house in 2012

Why Linda Ertel or Ernie Ertel chose Sarasota

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.

What makes this house unique

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.

Great family property and location

  • 5 of 5

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.

Owner's Response: Our loved Sunshine home gets extra good care from our brother and sister in law! We are so happy to hear that families that visit have a great experience. The location offers quick and easy access to many fun things to do for all ages. Siesta Key beach has given some of the most spectacular sun sets we have ever seen.

Wonderful vacation home

  • 5 of 5

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.

We loved our stay!

  • 5 of 5

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!

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to write a review. We also love our strategic spot for enjoying the International restaurants that we walk to from the back gate in the privacy fence. The Ooh La La Bakery is our favorite. Thanks to Felix the home always has welcoming lush plants and flowers in bloom. It is good to hear that others enjoyed our sunshine home.

Lovely holiday in a well equipped villa and great pool

  • 4 of 5

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.
