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.

Enjoyed the stay House was great
Home Away From Home
We have a daughter with special needs and her equipment was easily accommodated in the house. The pool and jacuzzi were exceptional. The house was very comfortable and well maintained and clean. Good location, everything within minutes. Close to the beach. The house felt like it was ours while we were staying there, unlike a timeshare or hotel. Quiet neighborhood and we really enjoyed our stay.
Lovely holiday home with large pool.
Everything about the this property is fantastic. A nice quiet neighbourhood minutes away from restaurants and bars, and 5 minutes drive from beaches and the very lovely Siesta key. The house has a lovely homely feel with nice furnishings and comfortable seating with plenty of room for 4 people. Very comfortable and huge master bed. But the best part is undoubtably the huge pool and outside area. We visited in early April and the pool was warm in the morning and almost bath like in the evening. The outside seating area has plenty of room and is under cover to keep you out of any rain that might come. I would recommend this property to anybody and we will hopefully be back soon.
We were extremely pleased with the house and all of the amenities. The pool and spa were amazing! Maria, the manager, was very helpful. Overall it was a wonderful stay!
We plan on staying there again next year.
Wonderful location, close to everything
We found the home and the grounds to be well maintained. The pool and spa were spectacular. Bikes and pool floats were available for use. We were able to walk to restaurants, grocery store and church. We enjoyed walking through the quiet neighborhoods each morning for our exercise. Maria, the property manager, was very thorough in her explanation of the property.
We would certainly rent here again based on this experience.
This is a tidy 2 bedroom house with a wonderful pool/patio area where we spent much of our time. The grill is first rate and everything you can need is supplied except... It is very close to all attraction, restaurants, beach etc in South Sarasota. There are 2 very nice bikes available and the beach is within biking distance. The hot tub/spa is the best I've ever used. The mood lighting at night of the pool and spa is beautiful. We had a minor issue with the refrigerator. I called Maria the manager and she had a repairman on site immediately. The ONLY negative to me was the extremely limited number of tv channels available. We are college basketball fans and had to go to sports bars whenever we wanted to watch a game. It is obvious the owner is a lady because the channels such as Hallmark etc all appealed to our wives but to us not so much. A more varied tv subscription would be in order but in all other respects this home is first rate
