Sarasota Gulf Gate Stay 2020
My wife and I had a pleasant stay at the property which is located walking distance from shops and restaurants. The master bedroom was spacious, and it had 2 additional rooms that we did not need to use. The owner was very approachable. In general, it was a comfortable property with a nice kitchen, laundry & pantry storage. If the need arises in the future, we would no problem renting it again.
dusty from road
was not told it was on an alley
Please read all the other reviews.
This renter had to return home half way through his stay because of the Corona Virus pandemic. He was obviously bummed out and is taking it on my rental review.
The alley is discussed in many of the reviews along with glowing descriptions of the apartment and its walkable proximity to over 20 restaurants plus shops, taverns, a large grocery store and a direct bus to the beach.
The apartment rents for the lowest price around for all these features.
The alley although disclosed in the listing was a huge disappointment. Trash continued to build up at front door despite picking it up. Shady stuff going on near the only door. Quite a few people doing who knows what. Cops arrested one person. Inside was typical Siesta rental for a reasonable price. Only real issue was the the fabric covered furniture. Owner claims it is professionally cleaned after each use. I would hire a different cleaner. They left at least an ounce of sand in the seams of the chaise. The couch is completely worn out, we covered it with sheets as others had.
I would not rent this place again but all is not bad. Although a little noisy on weekend nights, the attractions of Siesta Key are within walking distance. Restaurants, grocery, shopping, bars and much more are easy walking distance. Nearest beach is less than 2 miles. The unit is spacious .The kitchen is well stocked. The beds are fine. 2 baths are a plus. The location in relation to the interstate and non-beach attractions of Sarasota is outstanding.
Please read the other reviews. The alley is fully disclosed. There are restaurants at the other end of the strip and the staff park in the alley and take breaks in the alley. We have never had a police report.
The couch cover is a dusty turquoise chosen to stand up to the rental market. It is not worn out and is cleaned professionally before each renter. I am sorry he found some sand in a crack between the couch cushions. The trash is located around the corner of the next building, not "in front of the door". It is picked up once a week. Other businesses use the same pick up area so there is trash accumulating all week. The rest of his description of the great features of the location in terms of closeness to restaurants and the beach matches the reviews of our other renters. This unit would rent for at least 4 times as much if it were in a different area. So you really get a bargain here.
Convenient and spacious!
Convenient to what matters most! 10 minutes to Siesta Key beach, good restaurants within walking distance. Spacious unit. We had a good time.
We arrived later than planned due to traffic but were able to enter using the keypad by the door with no problems. The apartment was clean and well stocked for our stay. The screened in area off the livingroom provided a quiet place to sit and drink coffee in the mornings which we loved.
The bedrooms and bathrooms were perfect for our group and my nephew loved the big tv in the livingroom. (He brought his xbox from home :) )
The homeowner contacted us regarding issues with the a/c before we had a chance to contact them. Someone was out to fix it within the hr and we were contacted again letting us know what the problem was, how it was fixed and what we needed to do when we arrived back to get a/c going. Communication was top notch.
The restaurants and shopping all within walking were also a bonus we took advantage of.
