          Owner info

          Year Purchased: 2008

          About the owner: Hi, We are Lara and Sparky, the owners of our Florida Retreat vacation property in North Port on the Gulf side of Florida. We do everything to make you feel as at home during your Florida vacation!

          Why the Owner Chose North Port:
          First time we came for vacation in North Port in July 2007. We enjoyed the Warm Minerals Springs spa-like experience and the beaches so much that we brought our whole family for North Port vacation the next summer of 2008. Our children and grandchildren enjoyed it too, so we bought our house in the last day of our vacation...

          The Unique Benefits at this House:
          Top things to do in North Port, FL: 1) Visit Warm Mineral Springs-even if you enter the waters with nothing that ails you, you'll still feel better when you get out. It's like having a really good massage. And your skin will glow. 2) Visit the Shell Factory, #1 destination for family entertainment and shopping, with unique one of a kind gifts and jewelry shop and nature park with some amazing animals, that are found right here in North America. 3) Visit the Waltzing Waters, now known as LIQUID FIREWORKS, a spectacular water, music and light presentation with nightly shows at the Shell Factory and Nature Park. 4) Visit a Mote Aquarium in Sarasota  where you can explore the secrets of the sea and  mythical creatures. 5) Visit Busch Gardens in Tampa Bay where wildlife and wild rides come together in an unparalleled combination of Broadway-style shows, a world-class zoo with more than 2,500 exotic and endangered animals and more record-breaking roller coasters than any destination in Florida. 6) Visit Sanibel Island and do it all… or just lay back on the beach with the book you've been wanting to read or… just do absolutely nothing. 7) Enjoy the beautiful golf courses in the immediate area! 8) Enjoy the Gulf beaches with the whitest and finest sand in the world! 9) Enjoy the healing power of the ocean & sun! 10)Enjoy the Luxury of our Rentals with Budget Pricing!
