                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2012

                  About the owner: My wife and I purchased this waterfront condo recently in 2012 after spending several winters renting a unit in this same complex. We found the amenities perfect for our winter retirement needs. We own other rental units and have been in the rental real estate business for over 20 years. We are retired teachers and currently reside in Cherry Hill, NJ just outside of Philadelphia, PA.

                  Why the Owner Chose Ruskin:
                  This condo offers a beautiful waterfront view overlooking a causeway connecting the Little harbor Marina to Tampa Bay. Beyond the causeway is a bird and nature preserve. Walk across the street, sit at the pool and watch the sunset over St. Petersburg. The condo is at the end of a small peninsula that is a dead end street with no thru traffic.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                  We became interested in bird watching after seeing many species landing on the boat dock below our balcony. We also have seen on occasion, families of manatee and groups of 2 or 3 dolphin searching for food in the causeway.
