About the Property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Den, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

This first floor condo is located in Heritage Oaks, a private, gated golf community in Sarasota. It sits on a small lake overlooking the women's tee box of the signature par-five 14th hole. It is spotlessly clean and tastefully decorated with fine furniture and fine art. There is plenty of sitting and entertainment room. In the living room there is a couch, a recliner, a chair with ottoman, and a 'stressless' chair and ottoman. The den contains two love seats and a desk.
The unit contains numerous extras not found in many rental units. These include: beach and pool towels, floats, chairs, and umbrellas; two bikes; a VCR, DVD, and TV in the living room and both bedrooms; DVR and HBO channels; an Ipod and a CD music system; a CD, DVD, and large book library; remote control ceiling fans and lights; starters for coffee and tea, spices; an abundance of cooking and utensils, grills, blenders, steamers, slow cooking crockpot, baking and roasting pans; fine dishes and glasses for entertaining; TV and serving tables; an office set up with broadband, wireless internet connection; lounge furniture and outdoor dining table and chairs on lanais; ceiling fan on lanai; cleaning and cooking basic supplies, brooms, mops, and vacuum cleaners; a sewing kit for emergency repairs; hair dryers in both bathrooms; an iron and ironing board, a clothes steamer, two full length mirrors, a make-up mirror; games, puzzles, cards; binders with restaurants and highlights of the area, recipe books,;flashlights.


The condo was repainted in 2011. Bedrooms were repainted in 2012. The kitchen was renovated and new carpet was installed throughout in 2011 In 2014, a new furnace and air to conditioner with programmable thermostat were installed. Lanai furniture was repainted in 2014. New decorations are added each year to keep the condo feeling new!

The one-time $200 (or $50 if in off season) membership fee provides access to community amenities. The 18 hole Azinger/Lewis designed private championship golf course is open seven days a week. (Fees vary per season.) Scheduling can done via a computerized phone call in, computer registration, or through the very friendly and helpful club house staff. The pros offer private and weekly group lessons, and they schedule numerous league, group, or tournament outings to supplement your individual games. There is an over water driving range, a chipping and sand practice area, and a large putting practice green.

During the months of May through October, your membership at the home course entitles you to access the pro's ability to get you on over 20 other nearby courses for very low fees. It's a wonderful opportunity to golf all of the Sarasota area inexpensively. During this off season, the transfer fee is reduced to $50.

Other amenities include four floodlit Har Tru tennis courts (with league and private play), walking trails, group-outings, and numerous club gatherings. Mixers, dinners, bingos, card games, and informal meeting at the new 19th hole/bar/causal dining area guarantee you will always have something to do. Formal dining is served in the main dining room also. The club house also has an airconditioned, fully equipped fitness center and the fitness staff host numerous fitness activities and classes both indoors and in the main pool. There is a hot tub nearby to take off the aches from all the activity. In addition to the main pool, there are four others in the community. The 'Bardmoor pool' is within 200 yards of front door of your condo, and it is full of friendly, fun-loving folks/neighbors with whom you will love to share your sunny days and pleasant evenings.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2000

About the owner: I am a single, retired middle-school principal from KY who then worked part time at the University of Louisville mentoring new teachers. As a result, my home-away-from-home is available for rental part of the year. I have furnished it to be stylish and filled with art and artifacts that make me smile. I have organized it to have all the comforts of casual living. Many of my renters have returned multiple years with one set returning for nine years. I love my time there on the golf course, in the pool or at the beach, and on the back lanai sitting and reading (or just sitting.) The city of Sarasota fills my shopping, dining, and artistic needs.

Why the Owner Chose Sarasota, FL, USA:
Sarasota is a wonderful city with plenty to do. I love the arts, and there is always some show or concert or art fair to attend. I love the cool sand of the Siesta Key beach and the fun atmosphere of the Sunday night drum gathering at sunset. Because I was divorced, I wanted to live in a community where I could meet good fun-loving, caring friends who would join me for a round of golf, a dinner at the club house, an evening sharing going out, a good conversation round the pool about a book or a movie, or laugh and share lies and stories. I found it at Heritage Oaks. Most of my renters return for the amenities of the condo and the fun of the people in our end of the community. I have called this place my second home for the last ten years and have been blessed with good renters who love it too.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
My condo has a great view and great neighbors. I have great views of the sunsets over the lake and the signature golf hole. My neighbors are kind, helpful, fun, and interesting. Those are the two most important aspects of its location. My condo is also close to the most fun pool, near the mailboxes and garbage dumpsters, close to the back entrance of the community, and close to the walking trail. These little things make such a difference to comfort and ease of living.
