Owner info

Year Purchased: 1999

About the owner: I have lived in Sarasota since 1997 and I will be here until the end. I love SARASOTA! I am a Florida native, born and raised in Miami. I own a healthcare business here in Sarasota for the past 16 years. I lived at the magnolia house for 10 years and now I am offering it to travelers so they can experience the best Sarasota has to offer.

Why the Owner Chose South Poinsettia, Sarasota, FL, USA:
Clean, Quiet, Functional, Romantic, Close to EVERYTHING!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Location, location, location. I love my house! I enjoyed it from 1999 to 2010. Then I rented it as an annual for 3 years and then decided that I wanted to offer it as a vacation rental. I am a business owner here and believe that Sarasota is quite possibly the most wonderful place in the world to live. I want you to enjoy Magnolia Street as much as I did and love Sarasota as much as I do!
