About Marilyn Matecun

Before retirement, I was a School Library Media Specialist. Now I'm a snowbird who lives half time in Michigan & half time in Florida. While I am in Florida, I volunteer at the Mote Marine Dolphin, Whale and Sea Turtle Hospital. I also belong to the local Audubon Society.

Marilyn Matecun purchased this condo in 2005

Why Marilyn Matecun chose Florida South West

We chose this condo because of its perfect location - views of two lakes with the sun shining in all day long in the winter. We love the exquisite furnishings and the completely remodeled kitchen. We enjoy the friendly people from various countries who stay at Shorewalk and we especially love the peaceful, quiet atmosphere.

What makes this condo unique

Our favorite activities are swimming in the heated pools, exercising at water aerobics in the mornings, relaxing in the whirlpool tubs, and driving a short distance to Anna Maria Island to dine at the waterfront restaurants and view spectacular sunsets over the Gulf. We feel as if we're a part of nature when we are staying in this villa because of the two small lakes, turtles, tropical birds, the sunshine, and the lush landscaping. Sometimes residents get together and walk to the movie theater, the grocery store and restaurants. Many tennis players and families of other athletes stay here because of nearby IMG Academy.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Wonderful weather! Everything was fun during our 6-week stay. Another great year, Marilyn. We'll be back in 2015. Thank you.

Exquisite Villa on Two Small Lakes

  • 5 of 5

This lovely ground floor villa made us feel happy all the time.. It was sunny and full of light, with wonderful furnishings and lake views from almost every window. The kitchen was exquisite. We loved tha white plantation shutters in every room. The beds were comfortable. We especially enjoyed watching tropical birds from our screened lanai with ceiling fan. We stayed in this complex before and again enjoyed the proximity to stores, restaurants and the beach.

Owner's Response: Sunshine Cove makes us feel happy, too. We love all the light and sunshine, but also enjoy the privacy and easy light control from the new plantation shutters. Thanks for being great guests.

Perfect for a stay in the Sarasota / Bradenton Area

  • 5 of 5

Renting the Sunshine Cove condo was certainly one of the best decision's we made in terms of vacation rentals. The price quality ratio unbeatable! Communication with the property owner was very friendly, helpful and efficient, the stay was in every detail well organized. Wonderful beaches are near by, Anna Maria Island 20 min, Coquina Beach 15 min, Lido Key Beach 30 min & Siesta Key Beach 40 min. For a change of scenery there are plenty of other things to do, just follow the great tips of the property owner: the Ringling Museum, the Mote Aquarium and Marine Laboratory for example. Shopping is around the corner from the condo : Publix , Best By , Walmart, Walgreens. A great outlet in Ellington a 40 min ride. The condo it self in every detail is in perfect order, clean, very tastefully decorated and furnished. We also loved to stay at "home" during day and go to the beaches early in the evening, when the temperatures got cooler and we could experience wonderful sunsets on one the keys. And coming "home" again later in the evening , we enjoyed the quiet and cool sitting on the screed veranda, having a drink, chatting or “surfing” the internet with the fast and stable wifi provided with the condo. We had a great time and would love to come back again.

Owner's Response: What a pleasure it was to have our first guests from Switzerland! You took advantages of all the beauty of our Gulf Coast islands and even managed to visit every beach. It was a great idea for you to ask me to find a trusted driver to drive you occasionally. The driver especially enjoyed going to a Tampa ball game as your guest. We hope you will be able to return in the future.
