About the Owner

We have lived full time in Sarasota since 1997 and currently reside about 10 minutes from Shadow Lakes House. We have owned several rental properties in this general area since before we arrived. We take pride in our properties and furnish and equip them to a standard where we would be happy to live in them ourselves. We are always available and we make sure to take care of any problems that might arise without delay.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We and our dog enjoyed our one month stay at the Daleys’ Shadow Lakes House. The house is well located, in a quiet neighborhood, and is equipped with all the comforts of home. John and Cathy were accommodating and available to solve any problems (happily there weren’t any). We look forward to returning.

Like my Home away from Home

  • 4 of 5
Initially, my wife and I and my mother in law and her therapy dog were going to stay at the above rental property the entire winter season of 2014. Unfortunately, my 97 year old "Beta" Mother wound up in the hospital with respiratory problems, after we had signed the lease with the owners. Fortunately, they allowed us to come down and stay for the month of January 2014. Our son and daughter in law live near Tampa, Fla., so we were able to visit with them fairly frequently. And, we were able to enjoy Siesta Key Beach, just west of Sarasota, almost on a daily basis. Since we are used to the foul winter weather in New Jersey, the consistently cool and rainy weather in Sarasota was not unbearable. We still had a fantastic time. The Gulf Gate property is conveniently located to shopping malls, restaurants, fast food outlets, grocery stores, the post office, Myyaka River State Park about 9 miles east of the rental, and, of course, about 10 minutes drive from the Beaches. The property was clean and well maintained with towels and linens and kitchen utensils. All we had to do was to fill the refrigerator and cupboards with our own food. The owners also have WiFi access and cable television, which was nice. Most of the floors in the common areas are stone and easy to clean. Bedrooms have wall to wall carpeting. The screened Lanai was very nice to relax in during the day or night. The grounds are neat and landscaped well. And, the neighbors are very friendly and helpful but not excessively social. In other words, they gave us our "space" to relax. It's a quiet and peaceful area. If it is available the next time we decide to go south again for the winter, I would reserve it in a "New York Minute."

From the Owner

Peace and quiet and privacy have always been important to us personally so when we acquire a rental property we always view it as a place we would be happy to live in ourselves one day. This house fits that description.
