Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: I purchased my villa in March of 2010 and returned for the month of June to renovate it. I first discovered Sarasota after I stopped working in 2006. A friend of mine suggested taking off for a week in May to visit the area as she was thinking of moving to Florida. Off I went and discovered a whole new world of beautiful beaches, incredible restaurants, and so much to enjoy that I knew I wanted to return in the winter months. I have now been renting during the winter months for the past 3 years and decided that this was the time for me to buy. I have a home in Connecticut, a cat, friends, gardens and love the change of seasons. There are many outdoor attractions and things to do here but once I stopped working I couldn’t think of a good reason to stay cooped up in my house all winter and the fact that it gets dark at 4:40 made me appreciate the extra hour and a half of light in Florida. My family lives close by and I love spending time with them and my grandchildren but I really look forward to going to Sarasota and getting together with the friends I have made, playing bridge and golf and attending plays, lectures and events that are going on at the time. There are so many choices of what to do. It's like summer camp for retirees! Because my time is flexible I decided to offer my villa for rent for the times I would not be there.

Why the Owner Chose Crestwood Villas:
Sarasota is like a summer camp adults for anyone lucky enough to be out of the cold. There are numerous lectures and classes available to suit any ones interests, a regional repatory theatre that is the highest quality anywhere in the US, World Class Opera, and so much more. If you play bridge this is the place to be.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
I love the feeling of privacy but enjoy the benefits of knowing neighbors are close by. I like being able to step out my door to go for a walk or just getting on my bike and going for a ride. There are no stairs or elevators to contend with.
