About Janette Boone

Originally from Newfoundland, Canada, I have spent the past 30 years living between California and Florida. I knew I would eventually settle in beautiful Sarasota and did so in April, 2012. Now that I am settled and have remodeled this house, I have decided to get back to my roots and spend time in my original place of birth as well. When I am not here I would like to share my home.

I have one daughter, married and living in St Louis.

Thank you for your interest in my home. I am a new renter.

Janette Boone purchased this house in 2010

Why Janette Boone chose The Lakes

I chose this property because it is private, very lush and tropical. A lot of Spanish moss trees. (Cottontail)

Two lakes with fountains and walkways. (and turtles).

The central location is very important to me.

What makes this house unique

Beautifully decorated with vaulted ceilings. The split plan is amazing.

The central focal point is the living room looking out onto the Lanai. On one side of the house are two bedrooms, with a bathroom and on the complete opposite side is the master suite with large bathroom and den. Also this is a very quiet neighborhood.

Tom & Diane

  • 5 of 5

We have rented in the Sarasota, Florida area for the last 4 years & tried out 4 different homes. This home would rank toward the top . It was beautifully furnished as well as comfortable.

It was located in a quiet neighborhood about 2 miles from Yoder's Restaurant & Market, one of our favorite places. The few problems we had, the landlord dealt with immediately. We would rent it again Jan., Feb. & March 2018 but are venturing out in to a different type venue.
