About Jeffrey Rudge

My wife and I spent the past few months adding our own touches to this gorgeous house and hope you will enjoy its charm as much as we do. The yard and pool area are beautiful and very relaxing. Our goal is to make you feel comfortable and to unwind while you are away from the hustle and bustle.

I own an high-end concierge/caregiver company: The Royal Treatment, LLC and enjoy providing special services to people who deserve to be pampered.

My wife teaches marine science at Riverview High School (3 blocks away from the house) and started a very unique program called Stars to Starfish and was named Sarasota County Teacher of the Year in 2014!

Jeffrey Rudge purchased this house in 2003

Why Jeffrey Rudge chose Gulf Gate

This is actually my in-laws house and we are helping them manage it while they are busy relocating to their new gorgeous home. This house has been in our family since 2003 and has had many additions and renovations, including a front carport, pool has been resurfaced along with pavers added and screened cage in past 3 years, kitchen was fully remodeled with granite and stainless steel appliances, 2 renovated bathrooms, brand new washer and lots of storage space for everything you might be bringing with you!

What makes this house unique

We have always felt at home at this house and have spent many hours enjoying the pool or a meal on the pool deck. We have tried to create a relaxing atmosphere and a level of comfort, so you can feel right at home, but also be close enough to enjoy Siesta Key and all the amazing art and culture of Sarasota.

Our goal: We would like our guests to feel comfortable and at home! We live only a mile away, so call us if we missed something you need.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Danny and his family were terrific! They went above and beyond to leave our house just as it was when they arrived. We would be ecstatic if we had renters like them all of the time! Please come back!

Clean and quiet, great location

  • 5 of 5

The one improvement would be to provide guests with a binder with some information about the property (specifically, how to work the oven, thermostat, lighting location, pool cover ) as well as some information about the Sarasota area.This helps guests to feel welcome and points them in the right direction regarding discovering fun things to do.

Bike rentals, nearby hospitals just in case

Kayak rentals, restaurants to try out

Beaches in the area, Legacy Trail...

We loved it! Thanks again so much!

Beautiful and Well maintained

  • 5 of 5

The owner of this rental met us when we arrived. The house was beautiful and the pool was fabulous. Everything that you could think of was provided at this home. Towels, beach chairs, cooler, umbrella, pool floats, noodles etc... Siesta Key beach was only a short distance away. Along with other attractions in the area. It was nice to jump in the pool after a hot day at the beach. I can't say enough about the owner and this property. The owner was very attentive and close by if needed. We plan on staying again next yr. Awesome!

Beautiful Home. Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

This is a gorgeous home and is stocked with almost everything you will need. From the furnishing to the pool, everything is immaculate. This home is convenient to everything, minutes from all of the most beautiful beaches. Jeff is very easy to get in contact with and responds very quickly. He checked to make sure we had everything we needed. We have stayed up and down the Gulf side of Florida and this is one of the best houses and locations ever. We will definitely be back!

This place was perfect. Very clean and well taken care of. Jeff was a great host and was able to answer all questions. This house is located so close to anything you could possibly want to do like shopping restaurants and beautiful beaches. The pool area was amazing also. We will definitely be staying here again.

Loved it!

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at this property and thought it was perfect for us. The house is spacious and very clean with a modern kitchen. The pool and patio are completely enclosed, which made it quite pleasant to use the pool without having to worry about flying insects. It's only a short drive to the beach and every restaurant imaginable. The owners, Jeff & Katrin were great to deal with and responded very quickly to messages. All in all, we would recommend this property and will definitely be returning!
