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.

Peaceful and tranquil

  • 5 of 5

This was our third time back and it was so amazing! Our family finds such peace and tranquillity when we go to this home. Everything that we need is available, we don't have to bring much with us. The convenience of having grocery stores, retail stores, book stores, restaurants, and beautiful siesta key beach in a short distance makes for such easy vacationing. We love this home, we love Maria who is so kind and welcoming and we definitely love Nada the owner who always make sure we have what we need! This property is a gem!!

Little gem close to all amenities and that gorgeous beach.

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of 4 with 2 energetic boys aged 11 & 7. Having the pool was an absolute blessing. It was the perfect temperature for us all to play in, we had some wonderful days. The house itself is extremely well laid out. The only slight observation is the very small kitchen, but this didn't trouble us at all. The rest of the house has everything you could need, I especially liked the ensuite shower room which can be accessed by the pool . The neighbors were an absolute delight. They left Easter eggs for our boys in the garden which was simply a lovely gesture which my wife and I will never forget. Maria was fantastic, always on hand for anything we needed and showed us around and welcomed us upon arrival. A sincere Thank you to her and Nadia for a truly wonderful holiday experience. We will definitely return.

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


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.


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😊
