Farmington Vistas condo description
Our 1150+ square-foot first floor condominium with covered parking features a spacious living area, a dining area, complete kitchen, and two bedrooms each with a private bath. The master bedroom suite includes a private door onto the lanai, king-size bed, a spacious dressing area with large closets and washer/dryer, and a comfortable two-sink bathroom, complete with a large walk-in shower. The guest bedroom has twin beds and a bath that can be private or accessible to the main living area. Each bedroom has a tv.
The living area has a couch that opens to a queen-size bed and a matching loveseat. A new 42-inch flat screen tv was added in may 2013.
The kitchen is fully furnished with newer appliances including a new microwave. Matching dinnerware, glassware, flatware, etc., is provided for 8 people.
You will have a choice of several places to enjoy your meals; there is a breakfast bar facing the kitchen and a dining area. But we'd recommend sitting out on the lanai or the patio so you can enjoy the views of the lake and golf course.
Farmington Vistas has its own social network. The community pool is a popular gathering place. There is also a clubhouse and library. Rarely does a week go by without a potluck or 'theme' dinner taking place at the clubhouse. If activities such as bridge (different levels) or water aerobics are things you enjoy, you'll find them here.
Enjoy beautiful views from our condo of the plantation golf and country club's 7th fairway/hole. The plantation is a private club and we are not members. We do have the opportunity for a social membership that allows limited rounds of golf or tennis. We can discuss this option for long-term rentals. There are, however, several reasonably priced public courses within a 5- to 15-minute drive from our condo.
Venice island is conveniently located on the gulf coast. The quaint downtown is full of wonderful restaurants and shops. Our condo is 7 miles from the nearest beach. You'll be within a half hour of numerous beautiful beaches. Sarasota is less than 30 miles away. Disneyworld is a little over 2 hours away. Tampa international airport (1.5 hours) and ft. Myers international airport (1 hour) are convenient links to our condo. Several major league baseball teams have spring training facilities within an hour's drive.

Thanks for a Wonderful month.
Thanks for a Wonderful month.
We enjoyed our stay at your comfortable lakeside first floor condo. The apartment was so nicely finished and very easy to live in. Our January, 2014 weather was quite cool but, it was very pleasant to sit on your (very private) patio several afternoons and watch all the birds in the lake. We have already booked the unit for next winter!

Paradise Found! This is a lovely condo with a Million dollar view of the lake and golf course. The pictures depict the condo exactly. It was immaculate and well cared for. Dan and Becky have thought about every amenity and were very concerned about making our visit a pleasurable one. We enjoyed playing golf on several of the Plantation’s courses, taking long walks in the park like atmosphere and swimming in the pool. Venice beaches are close by and offer lovely sunsets. Can’t wait to go back. Thank you Dan and Becky for sharing your piece of paradise with us.

About the owner: Dan and Becky have been married for 46 years and have lived in Colorado for 38 of those years. We reside in Centennial, CO, a suburb of Denver, and it is hard to beat the beauty of the Rocky Mountains. However, having a wife who grew up on the Island of Aruba, we're quite a distance from the nearest beach. We met in high school when Becky's dad was transferred to New York. Several friends from those high school days retired to the Venice area and, during our visits with them, that desire to be near water returned. After 3 years of renting we decided to take the plunge and spend part of the winter here.
Why the Owner Chose Farmington Vistas:
We find Farmington Vistas to be a very friendly place. The area is mature, there are many lakes, and both morning and evening walks throughout The Plantation are delightful. It's great to enjoy our condo, but when it's time to return to Colorado it's nice to be able to 'close it up' within an hour or so and know it will be taken care of while we're gone.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Our condo overlooks a small lake and the 7th fairway/hole of the Bobcat Golf Course, one of two courses in The Plantation.
