About Linda Ertel or Ernie Ertel

We have been married since 1967 and have one special daughter and son in law who light 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! 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 pool making wonderful vacation memories.

Linda Ertel or Ernie Ertel purchased this house in 2012

Why Linda Ertel or Ernie Ertel chose Sarasota

Sarasota weather is so wonderful most of the year with the cool summer breeze. In the winter it is a ray of sunshine to rejuvenate in after so much dark, cold ice and snow.

What makes this house unique

This home is unique in that it is located on a quiet dead end street. 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.

Great vacation home! Super clean and comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay here very much. The house was very clean and comfortable with lots of space to gather our whole family for a meal or a relaxing conversation. The heated pool was so nice and warm it was easy to enjoy a swim even when the evenings were a little cool. We loved the sliders in the dining room that opened up to the pool area on two sides. The location was great too - close to shopping, restaurants, and the beach.

Clean, open, and relaxing! We felt a sense of being "at home" even though we were on vacation.

  • 5 of 5

My family and I enjoyed a relaxing week at this home. From the moment we walked in, the house seemed extremely clean, organized, and inviting. We loved all the little "extra" touches that made us feel welcome. Our kids enjoyed being able to jump in the pool as soon as they woke up in the morning or while they were waiting for dinner to be made. We were able to make all our meals with ease due to the great appliances and cooking utensils readily available. We definitely recommend this home to anyone seeking a stay at Siesta Key! The breath taking beaches are within a short driving distance, as well as the convenience of shopping vicinities. Our family of 7 had more than enough room to relax and enjoy our vacation!!

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.
