Gulf Gate house description

Halfmoon South is Sarasota's ONLY true retro vacation rental!

Located in sunny Sarasota, Florida... only minutes from endless shopping, and Siesta Key's world renowned beaches on the Gulf of Mexico.

Go back to a better time! Relive the 50's and 60's at Halfmoon South, a truly unique vacation experience. The moment you enter Halfmoon South, you will be amazed at the attention to detail throughout. From the furniture and decorations to the cupboards full of authentic retro dinnerware and glassware, it IS a one of a kind getaway!

Halfmoon South is also close to so many things the wonderful city of Sarasota, Florida has to offer. A seemingly endless choice of restaurants, shopping, and activities await. Sarasota is known for its rich culture in the arts and the arts and crafts of many local artisans.

From Halfmoon South, it is an easy drive to Busch Gardens, Disney World, Sea World, and Universal Studios and all of the other Orlando and Kissimme attractions without being in the hustle and bustle of it all.
