When you're looking for a longer-term rental, you want the house to be a true home away from home. Built in spring 2014, Golden Sunrise Lakeside House is indeed the home you've always dreamed of. From the 26' heated pool to the all-new appliances to the community fitness room and tennis courts, this 3-bedroom home offers so many amenities, you'll want to stay much longer than just a month. But that's okay: If you book for 3 or more months, you'll enjoy discounted rates. <br/><br/>Of all Golden Sunrise's features, we think its heated saltwater pool is especially spectacular. Adjacent to the lake that gives the house its name, the pool and its surroundings deck are fully enclosed in a screened lanai that lets in the sunshine but keeps out the bugs. With plenty of lounge chairs as well as a new gas grill, the pool area is certain to be one of your favorite places to hang out. <br/><br/>The open-plan living/dining area is pretty fabulous too, with its cool tiled floors, high ceilings, and large windows. The Natuzzi leather sofas invite you to sink back and relax, and there's plenty of room for everyone to gather round and choose a show or movie from the 200+ channels to watch on the 50" flat-screen TV. If the kids want to watch something else, they can get comfy in the den, which has its own 40" HDTV.<br/><br/>In addition to cable TV, by the way, the house comes with Verizon FiOS Digital Voice Unlimited Plan, which includes unlimited local, regional toll, and long-distance calls across the U.S. and to Canada, and high-speed fiber-optic wifi web access. Staying connected couldn't be easier! <br/><br/>The simple but chic dining room is perfectly suited for family meals and dinner parties alike. The same goes for the kitchen. The sparkling new appliances include a refrigerator/freezer with an ice maker to a coffeemaker for that all-important first cup of the day. The cookware and tableware are new and top-quality too, and the wealth of gleaming counter space makes preparing even a Thanksgiving feast a breeze. <br/><br/>The master suite is a true haven, with a sumptuous king-size bed, a 40" HDTV plush carpeting, plenty of light, walk-in closets, and a bathroom worthy of a spa. You'll love soaking in the tub-or starting off your day in the large walk-in shower, for that matter. <br/><br/>The 2nd bedroom has a lofty queen-size bed and its own 40" HDTV; the 3rd bedroom, with 2 twin beds, is great for kids. These bedrooms share a bathroom as beautifully decorated as the rest of the home. If you have additional guests coming to stay, you can open up one of the living room sofas into a bed for 2. <br/><br/>Between the pool, the lanai, and the beautiful furnishings of Golden Sunrise itself, you may never want to leave the premises. But during your stay you can take advantage of the amenities of the Willow Chase community. These include a playground, an outdoor kitchen, a fitness room, tennis courts, a basketball court, and (should you ever tire of Golden Sunrise's pool) a heated pool. You can also stroll the beautifully landscaped grounds, which include a wetland walking area and a trestle bridge with a gazebo. <br/><br/>You don't have to travel much farther to have access to a variety of shops and restaurants. Also nearby are 14 miles of sugary white beach along the gulf and Oscar Scherer State Park, which offers biking and hiking trails, canoeing, kayaking, fishing, and even camping. Just a half-hour away are the theaters, art galleries, and opera house of downtown Sarasota, and even the Orlando theme parks are only a day trip away. <br/><br/>Golden Sunrise Lakeside House is a second home that you'll wish was your first. Treat yourself to the escape you deserve, and reserve your long-term stay here today.
