About Robert Mastrippolito and Tina Molnar

Together we are a great team. Robert is a Community Association Resident Manager and Ernesztina has a Service Business taking care of other peoples properties, so rehabbing a home to rent was a natural. Without friends and family help and support the house would not be as glorious as it is.

Robert Mastrippolito and Tina Molnar purchased this house in 2014

Why Robert Mastrippolito and Tina Molnar chose Southgate

We were looking for a home in Sarasota to retire to (quite a few years in the future) and when we saw this one we loved it. Not for how it looked but for the potential of how it could be. There will be more improvements, including a two car garage, in the future. It's located close to everything Sarasota has to offer, but still in a relaxing quiet area. The most 'noise' you hear are the bells from the local church on Sunday.

What makes this house unique

Perfect Location, Relaxing, Peaceful neighborhood.

We love this place.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Robert & Ernesztina. We are really enjoying our stay in your house what a fantastic place, the photo's were good but now we are here its even better.

The house is immaculate, we have visited Florida about 23 times now over the years and this is one of the best accommodations we have stayed in everything is so very very clean and the kitchen is so well provided with all the utensils you could ever wish for. I am in the plumbing and bathroom refurb business myself and can see you have put a lot of thought time and effort into this project.

You mentioned about a 2nd property that has or will have a pool, do you have any details available and is it listed on VRBO yet, if so could you let me know the property ref no. We will be back In Sarasota about the same time again next year and it will more than likely be for a 2 week period.

Thank you for the fruit and bottle of wine you provided on arrival we have got 1 apple ,1 orange left for tomorrow i'm afraid afraid the wine didn't last beyond the first night

We will be leaving at 10am Wednesday morning for our last 2 nights in Clearwater, don't know if we will see you again before we leave but hope we meet again next year

Many Thanks David & Susan

Excellent Property!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay! The house exceeded our expectations! It was fully equipped and we had no problems with calling this "home" while we were in Florida. The owners met us when we arrived to show was around. That impressed us. We are going to keep this house in mind for future visits. Thank you again.

Great house in a quiet area

  • 5 of 5

I initially picked this house because of its location and reasonable rate. It was very clean upon arrival. Everything worked perfectly. I like to cook and I appreciated that the kitchen was well stocked with everything I needed. The washer/dryer worked well. Most of the appliances looked brand new.

The backyard is large with plenty of seating area. There is a big outdoor grill which I did not use.

I stayed 19 nights in February 2018 and it started to feel like my home. The photos posted are definitely accurate to what you'll actually see in person.

The best compliment I could give is that I would stay at this house again.

Robert and Tina are a nice couple who obviously know what they're doing in the rental house business.

You won't be disappointed.

Ideal location, clean and well maintained property

  • 5 of 5

This is our fourth stay in this property and we plan to return again next year. We especially appreciate the care the owners take to keep the house clean and well maintained. The location is ideal with easy access to the beach, restaurants, and shopping. The kitchen is well organized and equipped for cooking and dining. The house helps us to relax and enjoy our time in Florida. The new king bed this year was especially appreciated!
