Gulf Gate Estates Reviews
Rating 4.04 out of 5 26 reviews
I’m born and raised here so this will always be home. It’s quiet and the neighbors are very friendly.
We bought our home in May 2017. Gulf Gate Village is a corridor of successful boutique shops and restaurants that contribute to the rising value of the neighborhood homes. It's close to Siesta Key, and the homes are concrete block ranch style homes that were the retirement homes for the civic generation in the mid-1970s. Landmarks include, St. Thomas More Catholic Church, The Chelsea Center, and Gulf Gate Village Library.
Gulf Gate s a nice area neighborhood. It is close to Elementary schools, Middle and High schools. The neighborhoods are child friendly and t close to the interstate and beaches. You can actually walk to the beach, it takes about 20 minutes or so. I think its good for families because there are so many children around.
Family oriented. Nice place to live
I absolutely LOVE Sarasota, FL. I have lived in MI, upstate NY, and on the coast of VA.This place is by far my favorite. There is always something to do here and business is always up. The beaches, downtown, art galleries and festivals, parades, boat shows, water sports, and so much more.
Because we are right on the gulf, this causes us to be in the direct path of my severe thunderstorms, hurricanes, lightning storms, tornadoes and hurricanes. It is just like any other tropical city.
Because this city is a tourist attraction city, this causes it to be very appealing, so the standards of living are much higher than the average.
There are many opportunities, but there are more temporary jobs rather than career jobs due to this area being a tourist attraction city.
There is not a safety issue
Sarasota is a great community
There is plenty to do outdoors
Tourism is huge because we are home to Siesta Key which was voted #1 beach in the US a few years ago.
There is a large elderly population and they rule most of the local elections.
There are numerous places to exercise.
The restaurants are wonderful, but the nightlife is somewhat lacking due to the fact that there is not a significant younger population.
