About Linda Ertel or Ernie Ertel
We have been married since 1967 and have one special daughter who lights up our lives. We looked for a great beach to spend leasure time and know we had found in when we stepped out on the white, fine sand of Siesta Key. Wow! The Sunsets on that beach are unbelieveable. Sarasota clenched the deal with all the culture and amenities it has to offer. Ernie would like to live there and play music at the local beachside restaurants. We have always loved the beach and were property owners on Emerald Isle, North Carolina and loved going there with family and friends for vacations and having renters enjoy the beach and our home as we had. We love to imagine other happy families enjoying the long table in the Florida Room and the warm pool making wonderful vacation memories.
Linda Ertel or Ernie Ertel purchased this House in 2012
Why Linda Ertel or Ernie Ertel chose Gulf Gate Estates
Sarasota weather is so wonderful most of the year with the cool summer ocean breeze. In the winter it is a ray of sunshine to rejuvenate in after so much dark, cold ice and snow. You can load up you car with everything you need for comfort at the beach and be at the #1 beach in the USA in less than 5-10 min.
What makes this House unique
This home is unique in that it is located on a quiet dead end street with lush flowers always in bloom. It is private but its proximity to shopping, restaurants, and entertainment mean a car is not necessary. Go out the back gate in the privacy fence and you come out in the Gulf Gate Shopping and Dining District. This is a neighborhood of one-story stores, wonderful international restaurants, and clubs and gift shops for all ages. At night this area becomes a hot spot and fills up with eaters, drinkers and live music lovers, a fun spot to be near for six nights a week. The Sarasota Pavilion shopping complex is also right there with a Bealls, Ross, Old Navy, Marshalls, Michael’s Crafts, Books-a-Million, Steinmart, a Publix supermarket and many more including Big Chain Restaurants all near the intersection of Stickney Point and Tamiami Trail. Cross this intersection and go down the causeway to get to one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. It is less than two miles to Siesta Key. Two bicycles are provided free for your use.

A dream house!
We loved the property. The house was spotless on our arrival. The house was stocked with everything you could possibly need for your stay. The pool/lanai was in great shape and a wonderful addition to the property. The pool was well maintained and my grandchildren had a great time swimming and playing in it. There were plenty of linens and towels including beach/pool towels. The owners could not have been nicer and called to see if everything was to our liking. We have been renting in the Sarasota area for six years and this property was the best home we have ever stayed at! We would like be to stay there again.
Thanks to the author of this review! We are happy to have been able to create a good experience for your Sarasota visit. Our Sunshine home is well loved! Sarasota has a wonderful variety of fun things to do for a family and don't you appreciate the warm weather with an ocean breeze?
Best Vacation Ever!
This rental was so awesome. From check in to check out. The location was great and very quiet.
There were 10 of us. 5 adults and 5 children from 1-15. Everyone enjoyed the pool, cook outs and a crawfish boil. The home was very roomy and comfortable. It had everything you need and more.
It was our first family vacation with 2 grown sons and grandkids. We made so many awesome memories. My son proposed to his future wife in the back yard infront of a beautiful palm tree. I'm hoping we can all do it again and again. I just can't say enough good about the home and it's owners. I would recommend this rental hands down. You won't be disappointed. Again to the Ertels. Thank you so much❤️
Great location! Plenty of room for our large group
So close to Siesta Key beach and shops! House was clean and kitchen had everything we needed to have great family dinners. Pool was clean and refreshing on a hot day. Rooms were spacious and had a great layout. Owners were very responsive.
Very Enjoyable Stay
The house was clean and comfortable. Location is great. Only comment is that it would be nice to have a tee pitcher provided.
The house was everything we could have asked for, especially for the price.
We absolutely loved staying in the house, having the pool was a major plus! We stayed in the pool more than at the beach. The house felt just like home to us! If we ever return to Sarasota we will definitely book this house again!
The property was everything as listed, the house was very clean accesible to stores the owner was very tenative to ALL our needs , if we decide to visit again, this would be our top pick.
again the hospitality was GREAT.
Happy to hear you had a great time. If your party is like ours you enjoyed being able to cut through the gate in the back and go the the hundreds of restaurants or go shopping at Ross, Books-a-Million and so many more. There is a great grocery store in case you need one more thing.
Miles and miles of beautiful beaches. The famous Siesta Key is one of the most beautiful in the world and voted #1 in USA. So many shops and wonderful restaurants, music and culture things to do and see. Sarasota has small town charm with big city attractions and Museums and entertainment.
