Year Purchased: 1980
About the owner: This condo was purchased by my parents in 1980. Our family has enjoyed many wonderful days vacationing here. My parents are now deceased, and my husband and I are blessed to have inherited it. We take great pride in our 'home away from home' and provide a beautifully decorated, fully equipped, clean location for your vacation enjoyment.
Why the Owner Chose Sunshine Shores: The great thing about our condo located at Sunshine Shores is that there are no high rise facilities close by, so our beach area is rarely crowded. You do not have to step over people to get to the water. There are people who live here year-round, so we maintain a quiet location for you to enjoy.
