About the Property

2 bedroom, 3 full baths

This charming escape features a private pool, a very open and inviting floor plan with 2 bedrooms and 3 full baths. Pullout couch and queen air mattress available also. Great care was taken in furnishing the home for comfort in Fall 2012. The kitchen offers everything you need including granite countertops, and other attractive finishes. Wireless internet. Linens included. Beach chairs and towels provided. Absolutely everything is nearby. 2 miles to the Siesta Key bridge where the award winning beach offers sugary white beaches and tropical crystal waters. If you have never experienced Siesta Key you are in for a breath taking treat. Winner of the 'World's finest, whitest sand, USA Today International Edition voted Siesta one of the best walking beaches in the US, and National Geographic called it one of the 'Best beaches of the world'. Downtown Sarasota shops and Famous shopping at St. Armand's circle are just a 10 minute drive. For the bargain hunters, the consignment shops and estate sales abound!
The home features wireless Internet, FIOS TV with over 250 channels, movies, and back episodes of some of your favorite shows. The fenced yard includes a private pool, Webber gas grill, and patio to enjoy the western exposure offering beautiful sunsets. A cozy backyard hammock hangs between 2 towering palms to relax and enjoy the beauty of the area. The Master bedroom features a private bath, walk in closet, and flat screen TV and an extra single bed. The guest room has 1 twin and 1 full size bed, a wall of closets and its own flat screen tv. The guest bath offers a tub shower combo. A third full bath is perfect after the beach/pool. The pull out couch in the living room with upgraded mattress can offer semi privacy with glass doors (still open on one side though). Neighborhood is very well maintained Garage with opener. We will consider well behaved pets. Absolutely no cats though as we are allergic

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: We live near the beach in Delaware and visited Sarasota for the first time in Spring 2012. Our friends had purchased a home here and we immediately fell in love with the beauty of the white sand beaches, the really fun places to visit, shop, and eat, and the people who are genuine and warm. We have 2 daughters, one just graduated from College and one a Freshman in college. My husband is a CPA and I am A Delaware Licensed Realtor. We are beach people and own a condo in Bethany Beach so we are not first time rental property owners but always wanted a home where we could enjoy the beach all year round. We purchased this not just to rent but to use ourselves and for our friends and family so we have furnished it so we would enjoy the getaway as much as our guests. We also care for it in that way and ask our guests to also! We want this to be a great place to relax and rejuvenate.

Why the Owner Chose Southgate (Sarasota, FL, USA):
We chose this home because we loved the pool and privacy of the back yard, the Creek behind the house means the closest home we back up to is quite a distance away. We loved the kitchen, tons of living area, but mostly, the location of this home sold us. We are literally 1 mile from fabulous shopping, a few miles to the beach, 10 minutes to downtown with amazing restaurants and so much to see and do, and the airports both Sarasota (15 mins) and Tampa (just over an hour) are so easily accessible. The Creek, by the way, does not have a dock to it so although there are lots of boating opportunities nearby, you cannot boat from the back yard. But you can curl up in a hammock in the backyard with a great book or cocktail! UPDATE! We completely refurbished out pool and deck area in Fall 2015.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The sunsets in the back yard are gorgeous. You don't have to travel to the beach to enjoy them. We have tried to include most everything you'll need, we include linens, (including beach towels), beach chairs, and wireless internet. The kitchen has everything we could think of to make your stay enjoyable but feel free to let us know if you think we are missing something.
