About Jeff and Deb

We love to travel and the Sarasota area quickly became one of our favorites. After visiting for 7 years on Longboat and Siesta Key, we decided to purchase this home! We have decorated in a beach house theme and think its a relaxing place to be and a great base to explore all that the Sarasota area has to offer. We hope you will think so too!

Why Jeff and Deb chose Gulf Gate

The Gulf Gate neighborhood is close to shopping and restaurants - and a quick drive to Siesta Beach! It's a quiet area where you can choose to be away from it all with your own private pool - or in minutes be at your favorite restaurant or on the beach. We like the open feel of the home and its updated features. Whether you are relaxing in the pool, enjoy golf or at the best beach in world - you can name your own adventure. Does it get any better than that?

What makes this house unique

Quiet neighborhood great for walking and bike riding. Private, screened in pool. Open floor plan with new furniture and appliances. Outdoor patio with gas grill. Fenced in yard for security and privacy. Within a mile of shopping and restaurants and 2.5 miles to the Siesta Key beaches.

A Beautiful Home Away from Home!

  • 5 of 5

We truly enjoyed our month long stay at this very clean, well equipped property located in a quiet, safe neighborhood. The online photos depict an accurate picture of this beautiful renovated property. Only a short drive to the powdery sandy beaches at Siesta Key, Gulf Gate shopping area and Sarasota Square Mall (with Costco). The screened in private heated pool and sunroom were our favorites! The owners (Jeff & Deb) are super nice people. easily accessible through email or phone. Looking forward to a future stay at this 5 star home away from home!!

Screened heated pool, great location

  • 4 of 5

The house was perfect for my husband and myself. It is located in a quiet and safe neighborhood in a great location in the Gulf Gate area of Sarasota. We both felt that if we were going to relocate this is the area we would choose. Minutes away is a Publix, shopping, and restaurants, "Off the Hook" is our favorite. Approximately 20 minutes away is Ed Smith Stadium where we enjoyed two Spring Training games. It is also a short drive to Siesta Key beach. Parking can be a challenge so you may want to consider using Uber to get there. Siesta Key beach is beautiful but we spent most days at the very private heated pool. The pool service comes every week so the the pool is well maintained. The owners, Jeff and Deb, are easy to work with and provided us with all the information we needed prior to our trip. This was our first trip to Sarasota and hope we will be able to visit again, especially the Gulf Gate area. Thank you Jeff and Deb.

Fair property, could be better, good location, other minor problems

  • 2 of 5

First, the rental process was easy until a manager got involved, nice lady and family but confusing set of instructions, one from the owner, the other from the manager, they need to get their act together. The mattresses for the beds were terrible, no support, back aches for a month, second major issue, no hot water for either bathroom. Complained but no resolution, hot water in the kitchen, fine, none anywhere else, you figure it out. Plumber and electrician could not.

Property needs some updating some wall swithches did not work, utility room, kitchen was adequately equipped and supplied, nice welcome package if you like that stuff, very dirty garage, pool okay but could not use it, too cold.

Happy staying, good luck.

Owner's Response: Our goal is to provide a clean and welcoming environment and we are committed to making sure that all of our guests are satisfied and comfortable. We are readily accessible by phone, text and email. Maintenance matters are taken seriously and expeditiously resolved once they are reported to us. Specific to this review, we responded promptly to all questions by the guest and addressed any perceived issues quickly. We had both a plumber and electrician arrive to investigate the hot water issue and both verified there was hot water available throughout the house. While mattress comfort can be a matter of preference, we have had nothing but compliments from our other guests (both before and after this guest's stay) from a sleep comfort perspective. There was a light switch in the home’s utility area that needed replacement and it was corrected post-stay, as the guest opted not to have it addressed during their stay. We personally mop-cleaned the garage and our cleaning service broom swept the area prior to the guest’s arrival. And just for clarity, the guests experienced colder than usual weather during their stay and opted not to use the pool nor the pool heater that is provided. While we are disheartened by the review this guest chose to leave, we wish them well and hope that their next vacation rental may more closely meet their expectations. Sincerely - Jeff and Deb

Great house in Sarasota!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect house for my wife & I for 15 days....renovated house with great AC, beautiful pool, full kitchen with everything needed to cook, washer/dryer, garage, TV, wifi, lots of room to spread out, quiet/safe neighborhood close to restaurants, grocery, shopping, recreation. Owners have provided numerous thoughtful touches, such as nightlights, quality shampoos/soap in bathrooms, excellent lighting (for reading at night), comfortable beds, pool toys/floats, beach stuff (ice chests, umbrellas, chairs, etc.).....Owner very easy to work with, very responsive, and made the rental process go smoothly. Highly recommended rental property for couples & families.
