                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 1997

                  About the owner: My name is Jill Sheeler and I lived in this home personally for seven years before my family outgrew it. I rent my own homes for vacation rentals and am a property manager by profession so also do this as a full time job. I am licensed in the state of Florida which I think does give out of state tenants peace of mind when renting sight unseen and sending funds over long distances. While real estate is where I got my start, I think of my seasonal rentals as a hospitality industry. I want your stay here to be one to remember. I assure that my guests will find our accommodations clean to the highest standards, well maintained, and well stocked with everything you need for an enjoyable stay. If I can make any recommendations for anything you would like to do in the area, just call..I have been here 26 years and know many great spots, great deals, and must-do's in the area. I look forward to having you stay with us!

                  Why the Owner Chose Southgate:
                  In the heart of Sarasota this home is central to all the area has to offer. Less than 20 minutes from anything you would want to do here.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  Walk in the nearby park, dinners on Hillview, nights out downtown and sunsets at the beach. Evenings on the front porch swing, talking with neighbors (one is a charter fishing captain) cookouts on the back porch .... biking, walking ...being anywhere I want to be at the drop of a dime
