                          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:

                          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.
