Great time and great place in Sarasota

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our month in this well appointed home. It is within a 10-15 minute walk to restaurants, shops, grocery store and pubs. We were able to cycle to Siesta Key beach in 25 minutes or drive in 5-10 minutes. The property pictures highlight the pool and hot tub, but a great surprise was how "PRIVATE" it is in the backyard. We would recommend this property to anyone and definitely stay again. The owners were very responsive to our requests.

Great place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in Sarasota. During our stay, we visited 3 different beaches. Siesta was the nicest and biggest beach but it was also the busiest. Longboat key was really nice too, and not crowded at all. However, it was the smallest beach. Venice was nice as well, and it also had a section that allowed dogs (all the dogs were super friendly). The house was located within a short drive to all the beaches. It turned out to be a really convenient location, and away from the traffic of the main beach roads. The house itself looked exactly like it did in the pictures. It was really nice and we especially enjoyed the well maintained pool area. The master suite bed was a little uncomfortable but overall the house was great. We did have one maintenance issue but it was taken care of very quickly. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone staying in the Sarasota area.

Fabulous location; with pool, hot tub, huge kitchen, 2 kings ...

  • 5 of 5

Had an incredible vacation in Siesta staying at this property! It was so comfortable - and has all the amenities we needed. Very convenient to Siesta beach, but away from the crowds. The two king bed arrangement was perfect for us, and we spent a lot of time on the private lanai. With the pool, hot tub, and grill - what more can you need?! Thanks - we'll definitely be back!

Good Choice

  • 5 of 5

This home is at a great location if you want to enjoy Siesta Key beaches yet not have to put up with the business of the island. We would drive to the public beach and walk every morning and could be the in less than 8 minutes. If you are parked before 9:30 there is no problem finding a parking spot. We ate most of our meals off the island so this eliminated a lot of traffic headaches. The house was clean and we enjoyed the pool area. In March the pool is sunny until 2:30 or so . The back yard area is quiet, as is the street the home is on. The owner was easy to work with and met us at the home to show us around when we arrived. The Gulf Gate area is a great choice for anyone wanting to enjoy the beaches, yet wanting a little more privacy than. What you find at a typical condo.

Quiet, private and tranquil

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I loved our stay at this house! Perfect for two couples. And to have our own private pool was the best. Enjoyed the gourmet kitchen. Owner Monika was great and easy to get a hold of. And just a 15 minute drive to Siesta Key! Lots of shopping options, too. One warning, however about the traffic. Lots of people on the roads, so give ample time to get to your destination. But the house is in a lovely little neighborhood and very quiet, so no worries there. Siesta Key is wonderful. The village is fun and the beach has the whitest and finest sand I've ever seen. Good restaurants on the island as well as the area on the mainland where the house is located. Enjoy and book this house! Fantastic!
