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.

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.

House in a Mid century neighborhood close to Siesta Key

  • 3 of 5

Pluses: Great pool with hot/spa in lanai. Well decorated house. Small but nice well equipped kitchen. Everything you need. Two good sized bed rooms with comfortable beds. Guest bedroom bath quite totally redone. Master bath shower is rather tight. Plenty of towels, bath and beach. One car garage with washer and dryer, great so you can pack light and do a load or two of wash. Beach chairs, cooler and umbrellas which came in handy for the short trip (10-15 minutes) to Siesta Key!! Beach toys if you have little ones.

Supermarket and restaurants within walking distance.

Minuses: The house is in a close neighborhood. Unfortunately of the 2 weeks we rented 9days were disrupted by the back neighbors having a replacement pool being put in. Constant deafening sound of cement being cut and horrible clouds of cement dust everywhere so we where not able to use the outside area, the very best part of the property, from 9am to 5pm. for those 9 days. Also, every night for about an hour or so there were 3 yipey dogs that would bark non stop. All these things are not the owners fault but one should be aware that it is a "close neighborhood". Once everything calmed down after about 6pm - 6:30pm we had some good soaks in the hot tub. Also, be aware the pool is heated by solar panels so if you have a lot of cloudy days, which we did, the pool is a bit chilly. We thought the $105 up charge was for the pool and spa but that fee is only for the spa/hot tub. I guess I didn't read the description well enough. Once again it was not the owners fault that the weather did not co-operate. When I contacted her about the noise she did have her property manager Maria check out the situation the same day but obviously there was nothing she could do about the construction. It would have been nice if a small token reduction in the spa heating fee had been offered to make up for us not being unable to use the outside pool area but it was not offered. If you go on a sunny week and there is no construction I'm sure you'll enjoy yourselves.

Extremely clean and well maintained property with a very convenient location

  • 5 of 5

We loved the layout of the house, especially the pool and hot-tub. Very conveniently located close to downtown Sarasota and on the way to Venice, two of our frequented spots. Loved the fact that beach toys and bikes were offered with the property. Neighborhood was very convenient to walk to shops, restaurants or just to go walking/running. Only hiccup was initial issue with heating the pool/hot-tub but this was resolved ASAP with the help of one of the best features of the property - the wonderful Maria that was extremely welcoming and helpful.

Had a great time.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I just returned from a week long stay at this house in Sarasota. Everything we could have possibily wanted was available. From the great pool and hot tub to beach chairs, umbrella and coolers. Location was great being close to beach and shopping. Siesta Key beach was fantastic. We went to the beach around 10am each day and there was plenty of parking during the week. Maria the property manager was very helpful and prompt when meeting us at the house.
