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.

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 Gulf Gate

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.

Can't wait to go back!

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house for a week at the end of May to serve as a "home base" while my daughter visited prospective colleges. Our stay was PERFECT! The moment we walked in the house, we could tell is was well cared for. The owners have thought of (and supplied!) everything you could think you might need. The kitchen is fully stocked- everything you need from the "obvious, necessary" blender to the "rarely thought of in a kitchen" mortar & pestle! In the Living Room, there is a Wii with a few games, a blu-ray player and a few movies, and a new tv. It has a unique semi-open floor plan with a great screened in porch that allows you to sit outside and enjoy the weather without having to deal with the bugs! Around the corner of the patio is a nice, private hot tub and an awesome outdoor shower! The beds were clean and, man, were they comfortable! The home is cozy and inviting and was perfect for putting your feet up and relaxing after a day at the beach... whoops! I mean "college visit"!

Speaking of the beach.... the closest beach is a quick 5min drive right over the bridge. Drive another 5min further and you're right in the heart of Siesta Key! There we found WONDERFUL restaurants, BEAUTIFUL beaches, and lots of shops. The owners have provided a beach umbrella, beach cart, and chairs for you to use while you're there. There are a few beach toys there, as well, if you have younger children.

Publix Supermarket is less than a mile away from the house. About a 10min walk down the street will bring you to a few bars and restaurants- no need to worry about driving or needing to call Uber! The house is nestled in a nice, quiet community.

We're really looking forward to staying at this house again soon! We might even bring my husband & the boys next time!!

Very comfortable and convenient to everything

  • 4 of 5

We rented Gulf Gate for 2 weeks to get away from N.H ice and cold. It was so relaxing. Kids came to visit and spent most time at Siesta Beach. We older folk could spend time absorbing some vitamin D on the deck in the back of the house. Many restaurants very close. Looking forward to returning next year.

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.
