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 vacation home! Super clean and comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay here very much. The house was very clean and comfortable with lots of space to gather our whole family for a meal or a relaxing conversation. The heated pool was so nice and warm it was easy to enjoy a swim even when the evenings were a little cool. We loved the sliders in the dining room that opened up to the pool area on two sides. The location was great too - close to shopping, restaurants, and the beach.

It was wonderful!!!

  • 5 of 5

It was a very nice place. It was very clean and had everything that you needed. The pool was wonderful and we spent most of our time there. There were many restaurants and shopping nearby. The property managers were very nice and very attentive to any needs that you may have. I highly recommend it.

Lovely, homey, beachy place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely, lovely home. We rented the house to run away from Hurricane Irma. Linda, the owner could not be more supportive, responsive and kind in helping us to secure the rental. When we got there the house was, as pictured, an older home but precious. Definitely a home that has been loved and personalized by the owners. The decor is cottagey, beachy, but not overly done. They have a nicely stocked kitchen, lots of closets, plenty of beach supplies, seating and the house has a beautiful yard & pool. All the bathrooms are in working order and the AC is new and, if that were not enough, there is a ceiling fan in every room and area of the house. My family loved it and it helped us be less distressed over why we were there. While we did not vacation there and it was a hardship situation, Linda made it a wonderful experience. You will enjoy staying at the Ray of Sunshine!

Owner's Response: Thank you for the great review. Your are right, this home is very much loved. It is our favorite place to be. Sorry you did not get to enjoy the Gulf Gates International Restaurants, clubs, shopping and Siesta Key beach at sunset as well as all the other things to do in Sarasota. We hope you can come back for a happier occasion some day.

Great home base for family reunion

  • 5 of 5

The house was as advertised. Good kitchen, nice big dining table for 7-9 people to eat. Great covered pool was enjoyed by the young people. Location was convenient to shopping and restaurants. House is a little dated, but clean and functional.

Owner's Response: We are happy the house worked out for your family. Our Sunshine home got a complete renovation just prior to opening in 2014. We decided to keep the terrazzo floors in part of the home because they add a little of the old Florida charm/flavor. We just had them polished. Our new coastal quilts and patio updates were just completed and we think everyone will find it to be a very happy place. Linda and Ernie
