                  Owner info

                  About the owner: My husband & I purchased our little jewel in 2005, with anticipation of having it for our retirement home on the water's edge. We both appreciate Florida living, due to our roots beginning in the northern states. I work for a leading healthcare system in the Tampa Bay area comprised of a network of 10 hospitals and my husband for a deep foundation specialist company.

                  Why the Owner Chose Palm Harbor:
                  We take pride in the quality of furnishing, bedding, linen, electronics and appliances, keeping them new or nearly new. Palm Harbor is close to everything the western Gulf Coast, has to offer, but far enough to feel 'away from it all' when you want to be. We are on the waters edge, with nothing separating you from the water, other than the screened lanai and boardwalk. We are on the first floor with no stairs to climb, whether you are coming or going to your vehicle, pool or to the waters edge.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                  We have a boat dock for your convenience of bringing your own boat. Many visitors enjoy bringing their own bass boats to Lake Tarpon, enabling the sportsmen to travel from one prime fishing spot to the next with little effort.
