About the property

Adorable & Well-Equipped 2 bedroom, 1.5 bath home in popular Gulf Gate Estates

Beautiful, fully updated home full of charm and amenities in sought after Gulf Gate community, just minutes from Siesta Key.

Less than 2 miles from the beach and only blocks from shopping, including a full-service grocery store, and Sarasota’s “culinary hotbed” of restaurants, this house offers convenience and comfort.

After a day on the beach, rinse off in the outdoor shower, soak in the spacious hot tub surrounded by lush landscaping, or enjoy cocktails on the shaded lanai.

This house comes fully equipped with a Wolf gas range and outdoor gas grill for gourmet cooking and plenty of space indoors or outdoors for dining and relaxing.

Stainless steel appliances, laundry room with washer, dryer, and utility sink, and ceiling fans in every room add to the luxury and convenience.

Not a beach-goer? Enjoy a round of golf at the Gulf Gate executive golf course, take a bike ride on the close by Legacy Trail – a 10-mile bike/walking trail from Sarasota to Venice -- or take advantage of Sarasota’s vibrant arts scene or many other action-packed outdoor experiences.

This house is only 15 minutes from Sarasota airport and 20 minutes from famed St. Armand’s Circle on Lido Key. It’s less than 1 hour from Tampa and only 2 hours away from Disney World.

There is still time for you to enjoy this house this season – rentals available. Book today!

About Lisa & Steve Danahy

For the past eight years, great care and attention have gone into equipping this house with quality appliances, beautiful landscaping, and comfortably furnished indoor and outdoor living spaces. We are now ready to share this property with renters with our latest upgrades to the home.

Lisa & Steve Danahy purchased this house in 2008

Why Lisa & Steve Danahy chose Sarasota

Gulf Gate is one of the largest, most established communities near the south bridge to famous Siesta Key Beach. We loved this house's location from the moment we found it, with it's circular drive-thru carport, the sanctuary of its private and serene backyard, the open layout of the living space, and it's perfect location -- a short walk to the newly renovated public library, the community golf course, loads of neighborhood restaurants and shopping, and...of course, it's proximity to America's #1 beach.

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

This house exceeded my expectations. The layout inside was perfect for my family of four. We were close to the beach and I liked staying off the island. It was much easier to enjoy the Sarasota amenities.

We had a wonderful stay at Siesta Seagate

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Siesta Seagate. The cottage is immaculate, charming and very well appointed. The location is very quiet and comfortable with convenient access to stores and restaurants as well as in close driving proximity of all the wonderful things Sarasota has to offer. We loved sitting outside at night in the wonderful screened in area. Lisa, our host, was available at all times and made us feel most welcome! I would definitely recommend staying at Siesta Seagate!

Loved it! So cute and charming with that wide open feel. We enjoyed sitting outside in the screen room under the umbrella in the pouring rain (such a treat coming from dry dry dry California) Very comfortable and immaculate. Thank you for hosting us on such short notice!

Absolutely wonderful experience!

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely wonderful experience! The owners were very friendly and answered emails promptly. They were patient with all my questions and allowed me an early check-in and a late check-out,no questions, or problems. they were completely accommodating! House was exactly as described but even cuter and nicer in person! Looks newly renovated with great, easy to clean floors, granite counters, etc. They had extra bedding and towels and paper products and cleaning supplies and detergent and ziplocks and garbage bags and foil and saran wrap, and s&p and other spices... everything you could possibly need! House was well-equipped and even had a high end Wolf gas range! Not to mention all the outside areas that were landscaped so beautifully, fenced for privacy and included an outside walk-in shower and a hot tub! It was very private and quiet, the corner house in the street. And location, location, location! Grocery stores, shops and more all within walking distance and near the Siesta Key bridge! Can travel north to St Petersburg, or south to Venice Beach and beyond with quick access to interstates... I couldn't say enough about this adorable little house! Loved it! Will try to come back soon!
