About Ben Gutwein

Natalie and Ben - Thank you for your interest in our Sarasota Home. We have 2 girls, one 7 yr old boy, 1 chiuaua and a Brindle Bullmastiff that go with us every where...they have even stayed at the Ritz Carlton here in Sarasota

Ben Gutwein purchased this house in 2007

Why Ben Gutwein chose Gulf Gate

Close to Siesta Key and Famous Siesta Beach, Downtown and I75. When we don't have guests in our home we try to get there to enjoy as often as we can.

What makes this house unique

I can walk to the beach if I so choose...a 5 mile hike but great exercise. The house has a 6 foot privacy fence that encloses the huge back yard for your privacy and keeping the pups safe :).

Well decorated and cozy...Flat Screen TVs, High Speed Wifi... etc.

A Perfect Spot for Vacation

  • 5 of 5

The biggest problem with Ben's home is that we couldn't stay long enough! Our trip was delayed because I fell and broke my wrist, so we were only able to stay in Sarasota for two weeks instead of four. Ben was so prompt to reply to every question I had about anything. His house is very comfortable, clean, and well-maintained. It has everything you might need to make a meal, and his linens were soft and comfortable. The yard was nice and big which my dogs appreciated. We found that we never had far to drive when going sightseeing in the area. We saw all the Ringling Brothers sites as well as the aquarium, the beach in Siesta Key, a great show at a community theatre, and we ate at several yummy restaurants. I also appreciated the bulletin board in the kitchen with cards for various services we might need and menus from local restaurants. I would encourage anyone to rent this facility for a trip to the Sarasota/SiestaKey area. I'm sure we'll be contacting Ben again at some point. I hope Ben will have the backdoor repaired as it was difficult to close, but that didn't detract from our pleasure when staying there.

Love this place!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at this vacation property for almost 3 months while I relocated. The house was just perfect for my daughter, my dog and me. It was clean and well kept. The decor was beachy and very comfortable. Every amenity I needed for my stay was provided for the length of my stay. The fenced in yard was perfect for my dog. The location is so convenient to shopping, restaurants and Siesta Key. Ben, the owner, was timely in responding to any questions that I had. I would definitely stay here again and also highly recommend it to family and friends.

Sarasota Pet Friendly Accommodation

  • 5 of 5

We had a very enjoyable Christmas break. Great house for dog owners especially with a large fenced back garden for big and small dogs alike. Dog walking park about a mile away with plenty of wildlife to look at on route. Accommodation was comfortable. Bonus to have a couple of bicycles to use around the area and plenty of beach equipment. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would be happy to recommend to friends. Thank you very much.

A Great Find!

  • 5 of 5

After the winter New England had in 2015, we decided we should get out of town in 2016. We went to VRBO and applied our filters to homes in the Sarasota area. We needed a pet friendly home with a fenced in back yard for the month of March. We were lucky enough to find this great rental in Sarasota. Everything we could need was provided. The home was clean and neat. It is very centrally located to golf, beaches, good restaurants and fishing. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and our dog was very happy as well. We wanted to book for next year and were disappointed that it was not available for our time. Highly recommend !!!

Sarasota home away from home

  • 5 of 5

Perfect place for us, location was great, house was lovely and the back yard was wonderful for our dogs! Close to beaches but not on the key so the traffic isn't such a problem when getting around town. Quite neighborhood but so centrally located. Really a great place.

Fantastic Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

Really enjoyed staying at this vacation rental . The house had a beachy feel inside, wonderful front porch to enjoy morning coffee and afternoon cocktails. The street was perfect for riding the bicycles that come with the rental. Siesta key beach is minutes away as well as shopping. Looking forward to our next stay at this rental.
