About Nada, the owner of the property
Being Snowbirds ourselves, we did comprehensive research on Southern destinations where we felt would be most comfortable and exciting for us to vacation away from the cold winter months in Canada. We had already vacationed in California, New Mexico, Arizona, Panama, Costa Rica, Mexico, and the Dominican Republic, and finally found ourselves mesmerized with the beaches and amenities that Sarasota offers to vacationers.
Nada, the owner of the property purchased this House in 2012
Why Nada, the owner of the property chose Gulf Gate Estates
We decided to craft a Beach House in Sarasota Gulf Gate because of it's charming tranquility, as well as it's close proximity to Siesta Key Beach. We wanted to have a vacation home that would be relaxing and enjoyable, and at the same time, give us that 'away from it all' feeling. It took us some time to remodel an exquisite property and to construct and include a beautiful and expansive Roman swimming pool on our large patio. We are thrilled with our Gulf Gate Beach House as a family and we are excited to share our joys and passion for it with you too! See you there! And remember, ‘Life is Good’
What makes this House unique
We were attracted by a beautiful view from the living room on the spacious and tropical looking backyard. We immediately imagined a large swiming pool and spa right in the middle of it. Our dream came true the following year when we built a nice sundeck and our private, Roman-shaped swimming pool, where we spend our most enjoyable moments.

Great location and home, hot tub a plus Nice to be able to bike to Siesta Key and avoid traffic
Maria was very helpful.
Wish I was able to reserve it for 2019 for same period but already booked.
We loved this place!!!
Well appointed, and very clean.
Maria was wonderful to us!
Wonderful clean house in great area
As pre-retirees, this was our first visit to the Sarasota area. 1.2 miles from Siesta Key, best public beach. Also close to St Armands Circle great shops and restaurants.
Made much use of Big Lanai in private yard, it was fantastic. Even though weather cold to use pool, so peaceful to lounge by it. Hot tub was great, Maria very helpful with clear instructions how to operate and worked perfectly.
House was spotlessly clean upon arrival, much appreciated when booking blindly online. 2 BR, 2BA was perfect size for this couple. When not walking the beach, we felt completely safe walking the quiet neighborhood at dusk. Close proximity to Publix and just about anything else we needed was also a big plus. We would definitely consider renting again.
Thank you for helping to make our first stay in Sarasota a great one!
Great location close to Siesta Key and restaurants
Our second time renting this home. The pool and hot tub are great. Quiet and relaxing stay.
From the minute we met Maria at the property and until we left, we felt very at home. Maria was very helpful showing us around the property and giving instructions. The pool and spa were just what we need in the hot weather. The kitchen area had everything we needed, it is perfectly adequate for 2 adults and 2 children. We only used the main bedroom for 2 adults, but we did use both bathrooms. My husband found the shower cubicle in the en-suite big enough and I had plenty of room in the main bathroom. Having the door from the en-suite to the pool area was also a bonus. I agree with previous reviews that the air con is a bit noisy, but during the day this is not a problem, however at night it did keep us awake so we switched it off and used the ceiling fan instead which was more than adequate to keep us cool at night. The area is very quite and the neighbours are friendly. We walked to the local bars and restaurants, but the Publix supermarket is a bit too far in the hot weather. We can recommend the il Panificio Italian for pizza and sandwiches, Harry Sports Bar & Grill (which we walked to, but it is a good 20 mins) and Original Word of Mouth for Brunch.
Peaceful and tranquil
This was our third time back and it was so amazing! Our family finds such peace and tranquillity when we go to this home. Everything that we need is available, we don't have to bring much with us. The convenience of having grocery stores, retail stores, book stores, restaurants, and beautiful siesta key beach in a short distance makes for such easy vacationing. We love this home, we love Maria who is so kind and welcoming and we definitely love Nada the owner who always make sure we have what we need! This property is a gem!!
