Why Tropical Dreams Sarasota / Kim chose Gulf Gate Estates
Sarasota has a lot to offer. Siesta Key has been named the #1 beach in the USA by multiple sites. The powder white fine sand is unbelievable with stunning view. Millions of dollars were recently spent on a Siesta Key beach new parking lot, concession stand and park area. Siesta Key village is just up the road from the beach for a casual dinner out, drinks or shopping. Or go south from Siesta Key beach and check out turtle beach on the island for a quieter atmosphere if you prefer that.There is several areas to explore nearby and things to do. A few include State parks with lots of wildlife, many of restaurants, nightlife, museums, art galleries, farmers markets, festivals, theater, opera, live music, St Armands Circle, Lideo Key, Longboat key, Anna Maria island, Casey Key, You can spend your time just relaxing or busy exploring the area
What makes this Villa unique
A lot more space than a hotel room with full kitchen, 2 large bedrooms both with king beds. living room, private lanai and covered parking. Many updates and new furnishings. Staying close to Siesta key, but not on it allows for a quicker travel time to various places in the area.
Canceled bookings will not receive a refund
Expensive and right next to a busy street.
We stayed here during spring break because we couldn’t find a place on Siesta Key. The unit is very expensive for the quality. I paid more for this unit than similar units on Siesta Key. It’s right next to a busy street and not in a very nice area. During our stay we had four lizards in the bedrooms. Also the one and only dresser in the unit had a dirty sock in the drawer and the drawers were all dusty. The unit also had an usual smell. I couldn’t get any hot water and discovered the hot and cold handles in the shower were switched. The property owner was nice and easy to reach.
Over Easter is our most expensive time of year as it is for other vacation rentals and hotels / motels in the area. We were the least expensive vacation rental in this area when you made your reservation.We were priced less than the other motels located on the same road with just a bed in a room. Properties on Siesta Key during that week were about starting at about $200. more per night.
I noticed after you left the shower hot and cold handles were switched. They are now correct. Sorry for any confusion. The new shower and tub handles were installed by a plumber along with new plumbing prior to your arrival. All villas have their own hot water heater and the water is very hot. Maybe if you were the last in your large family to use the shower right after another you may of used all the hot water in the water in the tank and needed to wait a few minutes for it to warm up again. I've had several groups of up to 6 have stayed in the unit before and after you without complaints.
Besides the dresser in the bedroom we have 2 new luggage racks in each bedroom / 4 total in each villa which many people prefer to use for short term stays. Both bedroom closets are very large and the length of each bedroom with 4 doors. On top of the hanging bar is a shelf the length of the closet that can also be used for items you don't want to hang.
I did walk though the villa with your and your husband at arrival. I did not smell any weird smell then, before or after your stay. I have also not had anyone else mention it. You did not mention it to me at any time. Even though this was the same unit you picked when making your reservation I said I had another available if for some reason you would prefer that, but you said no and that this was fine. you also had my direct contact information if you had a issue. Maybe you were smelling a air freshener which has now been removed..
Tiny geckos are super common in Florida. I did not see any inside, but occasionally they get in when doors are left open. The screen doors on the sliding glass doors should always be in place when left open.
The road directly in front of the building is a service road a block long with a dead end in front of our property. In front of that is another road, but the speed limit is only about 35 MPH and there is a stop light within a couple blocks each direction. Our ad shows a map of the exact location. There is 6 hotels & many condos / townhouses / villas on that road. Most people like the location.
It was a perfect choice!
The property description was accurate. It was better than expected and everything was clean and well taken care of. It was close to the beach and other activities, restaurants, nightlife and shopping. We plan to stay here again
I am glad you enjoyed your stay and look forward to seeing you back again. I appreciate the positive review and you taking the time to write it. Thank you!
It was all great! Cute, nice, clean place and welcoming friendly owner. We loved our stay and Sarasota. 2 king beds were a big plus. Living room and dining had plenty of furniture. Large private lanai and covered parking were also nice. We would recommend it.
Thank you for the kind words. I am glad you enjoyed your stay. I hope to see you back again.
It was a very nice place! We enjoyed our stay.
We plan to return in a few months and stay here. We were very comfortable. it was clean with nice newer furniture and updates. We had a hotel reserved not far away that we refused to stay at once we saw it. Then we were lucky to find this place and were extremely happy with it.
Nice, clean and plenty of room.
We had a wonderful Sarasota vacation and this place worked out well for us. It was well equipped with everything we needed. It was nicer than expected and a great value. We plan to return and stay here again.
Thank you for the positive review. I definitely appreciate it and look forward to seeing you back again.
Everything was great. Super comfortable king beds!
Everything was great! Clean apartment and we appreciated the quality of the sheets, blankets, comforter and beds. We would definitely recommend.
Thank you for the kind words and taking the time to write a review. I am glad you enjoyed for stay.
Great location. We are just up the road from Siesta Key 2 miles. Siesta Key has a white sand beach, village with shops, restaurants and night life. The immediate area of the property has a Publix grocery store, CVS, multiple restaurants, ice cream and other shops a block away. Downtown is about 3 miles.
