There is a clubhouse (including a small kitchen) which could be reserved for private events ($250 security deposit) without disturbing the neighbours with your late-night party.
The condo is quiet, thanks to the verdant vegetation, the high sound protection wall, the two fountains, the noise from the busy Clark road (FL72) at the entry gate is not a nuisance. Two fountains are working just in front of the window between 9 AM and 9 PM drowning all the barely noticeable noises into the relaxing sound of splashing water.
For the very improbable rainy hours a collection of popular board games is offered. Bring your favorite DVDs as all 3 flatscreen TVs has its own DVD player. We are offering a few DVDs.
The entry gate is often guarded by an American bittern. You have your vacation in an open air bird sanctuary. Be sure you take your binocular and camera with you.

About Los Lagos Sarasota Rentals LLC, manager: Susanna
A retired computer consultant married to a marine biologist want to share their exclusive hideaway with other people dreaming about a quiet garden, a lake belonging to the Ashton Lake complex with rich bird life, the beautiful Siesta Key Beach just around the corner, the boat life, the scuba diving, the snorkeling. We play golf, there are more than 50 golf courses around, anybody can find a course which suits the own abilities and wallet. We are excited the delicious seefood, the rich cultural life and the friendly people. We enjoy being addressed as "young man" although we are 71 years old.
Los Lagos Sarasota Rentals LLC, manager: Susanna purchased this Condo in 2014
Why Los Lagos Sarasota Rentals LLC, manager: Susanna chose Gulf Gate Estates
Centrally located in Sarasota, near to everything, especially to Siesta Key Beach (4 miles, 6 km, 8 minutes driving). The selling argument, although, is the vacation-friendly environment of Los Lagos, you live inside a quiet bird sanctuary, an opulent vegetation, enjoying the Mediterranean architecture, the calm, quiet atmosphere inviting you for meditation.
What makes this Condo unique
We fell in love directly at the first visit. The natural Sunny Side Lake, the lush vegetation, the house in colonial Spanish revival architecture promised peace of mind. The generous space inside, the luxury furniture is inviting for a memorable vacation at a very affordable price. We do not like crowded, unified concrete block houses arranged in straight lines, in artificial, man-made gardens. In Los Lagos the roads are winding, the red brick houses are little different from each other and arranged harmonically adjusted to the gardens topography, to the natural Florida vegetation. You got to go back 50 years in time and several hundred miles to the South to find similar architecture.

Los Lagos met our needs perfectly during our stay in Sarasota.
Lajos and Susanna were excellent hosts. They provided all pertinent information about the property prior to our trip. They also checked in with us on a regular basis during our stay to make sure all was well. This was greatly appreciated.
The property was clean and nicely furnished with everything needed for a comfortable stay.

Serene lakeside apartment
This serene lakeside apartment exceeded our expectations and helped make our time in Sarasota thoroughly enjoyable. The apartment was very clean and comfortable. Communication with the owners was easy and very pleasant and they made great efforts to ensure we were satisfied and happy with the rental.

Middle of the road
Since we are snowbirds, we were looking for a more interactive community. While the neighbors were nice, and quiet, they are working folk so not interested in vacationers. The place is as pictured but not great. Plenty of supplies, owner very responsive. Close to Siesta key bridge, which is a positive. St Armand circle has the best salad restaurant, Colombia. Wonderful staff and food. In addition lots of nice shops and restaurants.
The unexpected happened, we got 3 star attached to an almost positive review. The guest (Karen), we believed was as happy as the 12 guest before her, who all gave 5 stars.
This raises the question could we have done something differently to improve the guest staisfaction?
We are happy that the place was regarded as nice, that the photos and the description gave a true picture what to expect.
We will try to emphasize that Los Lagos is a small quiet community without any special entertaining programs.
The owners are tender, unobtrusive people, respecting the privacy of the guest, but ready to help or just chit-chat when a guest approaching them.
Please don't be scared away with this single review, read what other guests were thinking about the friendliness of the neighbors and about Los Lagos in general. Thank you.
You can't compare a vacation at the lake with other types of holiday. The water changes color, all the time, exotic busy birds are visible around the clock. The condo itself is a piece of Spanish architecture tastefully prepared for guests. I want to come back again and again! This stay was a spa for my nerves.
Thank you for your kind words. We try to pamper our guest.
Relaxing Lakeside Palace
Sarasota is a great place and Los Lagos is a real pearl. Near to everything, but still a quiet spot. The host and the neighbors are very friendly. I already longing for return.
I am happy Rob that you enjoyed your vacation in our lakeside condo. It is a joy for us to share our love for Los Lagos Jewel with our guests. Susanna
great time at LosLagos!
We spent February in unit 8 with sister and brother in law. The condo came equipped with everything we needed to enjoy our stay. It was spacious with large lovely lanai facing lagoon. We especially enjoyed our feathered wildlife who came to visit. The condo community was quiet and filled with lovely people. The location was very convenient, close to Siesta key and Downtown Sarasota. The owner Lajos went above and beyond to insure we had a great stay. We look forward to returning for another stay.
Doreen & Bob
Thank you Doreen and Bob for the lovely review. You were among our dream guests, you are welcome at any time.
The small lakes shoreline will be protected for next year with a lake wall, we hope it will look impressive. Los Lagos has a special beauty, we are glad that you share our fascination. Susanna and Lajos
Located in central Sarasota at the Ashton Lakes area, near (4 miles, 6 km, 8 minutes driving) to the marvelous Siesta Key Beach where the Crystal Sand Sculpturing competition is arranged each year. The "Beach Access 12" passage is even nearer, 2 miles. The rich cultural life of Sarasota is famous, let's just mention the Asolo Repertory Theatre or the Van Wezel Theatre. Snowbirds gather here for the mild winter. During the summer the sun-lovers, the families with children seek here a hideaway. The abundant djungle garden of the Los Lagos condo complex, the busy water birds, turtles, otters inhabiting the two lakes, the small quiet swimming pool, inviting for a relaxing joy for a modern, stressful person. The nearest library is Gulf Gate Public Library, 7112 Curtiss Ave phone 941-861-1230 hours Mon/Tue/Wed 10-8 Thu/Fri/Sat 10-5 Sarasota Pavilion is a big shopping complex 6543 S Tamiami Trl (crossing with FL72-Clark-Stickney point Rd.). Strip Mall at Riverview Plaza (crossing Swift and Proctor Rd.). But the shop on the corner, is Winn Dixie in 5 minutes walking distance from Los Lagos.
