The charming Tiki-style balcony beckons you to enjoy tropical breezes as you grill and watch the world go by. Absolutely no smoking; no pets.

                              Year Purchased: 2004

                              About the owner: We are middle school teachers for over 30 years and still smiling! Laurie was born in Wisconsin, and was raised in Orlando and has been in Sarasota since 1977. Tim is a Georgia boy who attended Manatee High and has been in Sarasota since 1969.

                              Why the Owner Chose Other Sarasota Properties:
                              Our condo gives us the joy of having friends and family share the water amenities of beautiful Sarasota.

                              The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                              Being able to enjoy our boat and kayak is pure 'recess' for us. As we drive over the bridge from our Osprey home, we truly feel we've entered a tropical getaway, just 20 minutes from our everyday lives.
