About the Property
House, 2 Bedrooms + Den, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 2-5)
Just about everything is within walking or biking distance. The Gulf Gate community has been described as 'the gourmet center of south Sarasota' with many restaurants within two or three minutes walk (that's right: walk) from the house. Plus bakeries, hair salons, clothing shops, pubs, etc. Notable are Opa-Opa Greek restaurant, Hong Kong Chinese restaurant, The Veg fish and vegetarian restaurant, Panificio's Italian restaurant and bakery, and Thai Steak House. The community is mostly single-family homes and the people are very friendly.
We are two miles from Siesta Key, which has two outstanding public beaches with ample public parking, tennis courts, etc. Sarasota is also a center of entertainment and cultural events, with its own ballet, symphony orchestra, opera company, and world-class museum. Osalo Theater provides both continuing and repertory stage performances. The Van Wezel Performing Arts Center brings world-renown presentations to downtown Sarasota, just 15 minutes away. There are numerous festivals throughout the year: Sarasota International Movie Festival, June Music Festival, etc. There are such culturally interesting activities as International dancing, chalk-art competitions, art exhibition openings, wild animal parks, and auto museums.
Four minutes' walk from the house is Gulf Gate Shopping Center, with a Publix supermarket, major chain stores, and restaurants. Public golf courses are nearby, as are tennis courts, Mayakka State Park, boat rentals, tours, and hiking. It is near churches and synagogues, and the brand new Gulf Gate Library is nearby.
This Property is currently available Off-Season, and we have accordingly set modest rates. The minimum rental for March and April is one month. (Note: During May through December, the minimum rental is two weeks. Also, please consult the rental rate chart for rates the 'instant quote' table can be misleading.)
A cleaning fee upon leaving is partially paid by owners; excess charges are paid by tenants.

In addition to the beaches, shops, and restaurants quite nearby, it is a 15 ride to Myakka State Park with its scenic trails and air-boat tours of Lake Myakka. Spanish ruins are located about 15 minutes south, and the vibrant downtown area is about 15 minutes north.
Year Purchased: 2008
About the owner: We are both retired (a professor and public school teacher) and wanted to divide our time between Sarasota, with its pleasant life-style, and our children and grandchildren in Maryland & New York. We enjoy reading--mostly mysteries, nights out, folk dancing, dining, and our friends. We are quite active, and try to exercise daily.
Why the Owner Chose Gulf Gate (Sarasota, FL, USA):
The house with its rather large pool was quite inviting, and the community of mostly individual houses was appealing. We have found the neighbors very friendly, and we like that there are young families as well as retirees around us. Of course, having 20 miles of beach along the Gulf of Mexico helps, as does the proximity to shops, malls, and downtown Sarasota.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
For us, the opportunity to cool off in the pool, and have a lot of open space in the house are all extra pluses.
