About the owner: We (Bret and Beth Lewis) have always loved Florida! Especially the beach. We were married in 2006 on Smathers Beach in Key West. We go there every chance we get. The gulf coast is wonderful!
Why the Owner Chose Ashton Lakes: We have always wanted a place like this to escape the PA winters! This place is quiet, warm and close to everything! You can walk to many stores and drive to so many things within a few miles. The public beach at Siesta Key is wonderful! Heated pool is wonderful! Only a few miles away and parking is free and plentiful. The beach is wide and sand bars make for nice wading in the turquoise water! Public bathrooms and snack bar are right there. Close to so many things!
