About Lisa & Steve Danahy

For the past eight years, great care and attention have gone into equipping this house with quality appliances, beautiful landscaping, and comfortably furnished indoor and outdoor living spaces. We are now ready to share this property with renters with our latest upgrades to the home.

Lisa & Steve Danahy purchased this House in 2008

Why Lisa & Steve Danahy chose Gulf Gate Estates

Gulf Gate is one of the largest, most established communities near the south bridge to famous Siesta Key Beach. We loved this house's location from the moment we found it, with it's circular drive-thru carport, the sanctuary of its private and serene backyard, the open layout of the living space, and it's perfect location -- a short walk to the newly renovated public library, the community golf course, loads of neighborhood restaurants and shopping, and...of course, it's proximity to America's #1 beach.

                                                            Can't wait to go back!

                                                            Melinda D.Rockville, MD

                                                            We rented this house for a week at the end of May to serve as a "home base" while my daughter visited prospective colleges. Our stay was PERFECT! The moment we walked in the house, we could tell is was well cared for. The owners have thought of (and supplied!) everything you could think you might need. The kitchen is fully stocked- everything you need from the "obvious, necessary" blender to the "rarely thought of in a kitchen" mortar & pestle! In the Living Room, there is a Wii with a few games, a blu-ray player and a few movies, and a new tv. It has a unique semi-open floor plan with a great screened in porch that allows you to sit outside and enjoy the weather without having to deal with the bugs! Around the corner of the patio is a nice, private hot tub and an awesome outdoor shower! The beds were clean and, man, were they comfortable! The home is cozy and inviting and was perfect for putting your feet up and relaxing after a day at the beach... whoops! I mean "college visit"!

                                                            Speaking of the beach.... the closest beach is a quick 5min drive right over the bridge. Drive another 5min further and you're right in the heart of Siesta Key! There we found WONDERFUL restaurants, BEAUTIFUL beaches, and lots of shops. The owners have provided a beach umbrella, beach cart, and chairs for you to use while you're there. There are a few beach toys there, as well, if you have younger children.

                                                            Publix Supermarket is less than a mile away from the house. About a 10min walk down the street will bring you to a few bars and restaurants- no need to worry about driving or needing to call Uber! The house is nestled in a nice, quiet community.

                                                            We're really looking forward to staying at this house again soon! We might even bring my husband & the boys next time!!

                                                            Fantastic location and a perfect house

                                                            Joris N.Veghel

                                                            After renting the house for a month I can honestly stay that this location is perfect. There is plenty of space, both inside and outside, and the house comes with all you need for a stay.

                                                            I can highly recommend this place, the owners really make sure you have a fantastic stay.

                                                            Very comfortable and convenient to everything

                                                            Beverly S.

                                                            We rented Gulf Gate for 2 weeks to get away from N.H ice and cold. It was so relaxing. Kids came to visit and spent most time at Siesta Beach. We older folk could spend time absorbing some vitamin D on the deck in the back of the house. Many restaurants very close. Looking forward to returning next year.

                                                            Beautiful CLEAN home, in a great location!

                                                            Beautiful CLEAN home, in a great location! Minutes away from shopping and fine restaurants. Owners responded quickly to all our questions. Thank you for your hospitality! God Bless you and your family. :-)

                                                            The home is in a quiet, comfortable location.

                                                            The home is in a quiet, comfortable location. Very spacious and contains every amenity a family might need Our hosts were professional and their SPIRITS shone through in every corner of the house. You are blessed if you get the opportunity to stay here. Close to great restaurants, groceries and of course some of the finest beaches the country has to offer. Wishing you both Peace, Blessings and continued success! Ed

                                                            Great place to stay

                                                            Scot J.

                                                            This house exceeded my expectations. The layout inside was perfect for my family of four. We were close to the beach and I liked staying off the island. It was much easier to enjoy the Sarasota amenities.
