                          Manager info

                          Year Purchased: 2011

                          About: I'm an IT Business Manager by trade, but an avid Traveler, Photographic Artist, and lover of everything Mid-Century Modern in life. Most of the artwork in the condominium -- photographs and paintings -- were my own creations.

                          Why Racquet Club Garden Villas:
                          Location, location, location! Short blocks from the Riviera Hotel, minutes from downtown dining/shopping, and adjacent to the classic mid-century modern architecture of Alexander Homes' Racquet Club Estates!

                          The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
                          Of the many properties that I considered for purchase in late 2011, this was the one that I would personally want to rent for vacation. It offers the perfect combination of location, setting and style.
