Car: Recommended

Take a fifteen minute bike ride to the white sand beaches of world famous Siesta Key. While there, stop in for some award winning clam chowder and a beverage at Captain Curt's Sniki Tiki or bike on up the key to Siesta Key Village and enjoy a variety of shops and restaurants. The SKOB (Siesta Key Oyster Bar), Gilligans, Daiquiri Deck, Blase Cafe along with many others provide daily local live entertainment. Be sure to make your way to Sunset Point beach located behind the Village for breath taking views of sunset.

Also, once on the island, you can take advantage of the several 'Free Ride' services for transportation on and off the key. Siesta Key Free Rides, Jonny's Free Rides and Steve's Island Hopper are just a few of these transportation services that operate on tips only. A fun and inexpensive way to get around without the worries of parking or driving after a dinner and cocktails.

Back on the mainland, local attractions include the John and Mable Ringling Museum, Marie Selby Botanical Gardens, The Big Cat Habitat, Sarasota Jungle Gardens, Van Wezel Performing Arts Hall and more. Downtown Sarasota is a short six mile ride from the property and features a pedestrian friendly entertainment district with shopping, bars, restuarants and theaters. Be sure to check out Mattisons City Grille and enjoy live entertainment, great food and drink in a beautiful outdoor setting. For some of the area's best seafood visit Barnacle Bill's, also located in downtown Sarasota on Main Street.

From downtown, travel over the Ringling Bridge to visit famous St. Armands Circle on beautiful Lido Key. St. Armand's offers more dining, shopping and live entertainment options. Be sure to stop in at the Columbia Restaurant for a glass of Sangria freshly prepared tableside and the area's best Cuban food.

Located just north of St. Armands Circle is the Mote Marine Research Center and Aquarium. A great way to spend a few hours learning about local marine life. While there say hi to Hugh and Buffett, Mote Marines resident Manatees.

As you can see, Sarasota and its keys have much to enjoy in addition to the crystal clear water, white sand beaches and great weather. Be sure to check out The Ticket published by the Herald Tribune either online ) or in print for a complete listing of weekly entertainment, dining, nightlife, arts, attractions and events.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: We moved to Sarasota from Atlanta in 2011 and found our dream home. We have been renovating and updating this beautiful Old Florida home for the last two years. It has been our primary residence during this time. We are now ready to share our lovely home with visitors to the area.

Why the Owner Chose Gulf Gate:
We married on Siesta Key in 2006. We knew then that this was where we wanted our getaway home to be. We found the perfect home in Gulf Gate Estates that provided convenience to all aspects of Sarasota and its Keys. It needed work when we purchased it, and it has been a labor of love over the last two years.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The horseshoe shape of the house is amazing and unique. The house itself surrounds the pool, which is partially covered and fully screened. The master and guest rooms have pocket sliding glass doors that open directly to the pool deck. The living area and kitchen also have pocket doors that open to the deck. This provides an amazing amount of natural light and the ability to completely open up the house for the breeze. The house is beautiful, beachy, and comfortable.
