About the property

2 Bedroom/2 Bath 1st Floor Condominium

Our 1150+ square-foot first floor condominium with covered parking features a spacious living area, a dining area, complete kitchen, and two bedrooms each with newly remodeled private baths. The master bedroom suite includes a private door onto the lanai, king-size bed, a spacious dressing area with large closets and washer/dryer, and a comfortable two-sink bathroom, complete with a large walk-in shower. The guest bedroom has twin beds and a bath that can be private or accessible to the main living area. Each bedroom has a TV.

The living area has a couch and a matching loveseat. This room has a 42-inch flat screen TV and the entire condo has Comcast cable and secure internet service..

The newly remodeled kitchen is fully furnished with newer appliances including a new microwave. Matching dinnerware, glassware, flatware, etc., is provided for 8 people.

You will have a choice of several places to enjoy your meals; there is a breakfast bar facing the kitchen and a dining area. But we'd recommend sitting out on the lanai or the patio so you can enjoy the views of the lake and golf course.

Farmington Vistas has its own social network. The community pool is a popular gathering place. There is also a clubhouse and library. Rarely does a week go by without a potluck or 'theme' dinner taking place at the clubhouse. If activities such as bridge (different levels) or water fitness are things you enjoy, you'll find them here.

Enjoy beautiful views from our condo of the Plantation Golf and Country Club's 7th fairway/hole. The Plantation is a private club and we are NOT members. There are, however, numerous reasonably priced public courses within a 5- to 15-minute drive from our condo.

Venice island is conveniently located on the Gulf coast. The quaint downtown is full of wonderful restaurants and shops. Our condo is 7 miles from the nearest beach. You'll be within a half hour of numerous beautiful beaches. Sarasota is less than 30 miles away. Disneyworld is a little over 2 hours away. Tampa International Airport (1.5 hours) and Ft. Myers International Airport (1 hour) are convenient links to our condo. Several major league baseball teams have spring training facilities within an hour's drive.

About Dan and Becky Seaman

Dan and Becky have been married for 49 years and have lived in Colorado for 40 of those years. We reside in Centennial, CO, a suburb of Denver, and it is hard to beat the beauty of the Rocky Mountains. However, having a wife who grew up on the Island of Aruba, we're quite a distance from the nearest beach. After 3 years of renting we decided to take the plunge and spend part of the winter here.

Dan and Becky Seaman purchased this condo in 2013

Why Dan and Becky Seaman chose Florida South West

We find Farmington Vistas to be a very friendly place. The area is mature, there are many lakes, and both morning and evening walks throughout The Plantation are delightful. It's great to enjoy our condo, but when it's time to return to Colorado it's nice to be able to 'close it up' within an hour or so and know it will be taken care of while we're gone.

What makes this condo unique

Our condo overlooks a pond and the 7th fairway/hole of the Bobcat Golf Course, one of two courses in The Plantation.

Janurary Hideaway

  • 5 of 5

This will be our fourth year renting this unit. Dan and Becky are very easy to work with, eager to please, enjoyable to be around, keeping the unit well equipped for all your "away-from-home- needs", and this year doing some wonderful updating to the condo! We thoroughly enjoy the flat walking access throughout the housing areas, the various birds, fantastic sunsets outside our patio, and the many points of interest in the Venice area. You will not be disappointed if you rent this condo!

Still Paradise Found

  • 5 of 5

This was our third stay at Dan and Becky's place in Venice and it was just as enjoyable as ever. They have done a great job maintaining and updating the condo. And the Plantation area is beautifully maintained and landscaped as well, Already booked for next year. Dan and Becky are a pleasure to work with and to know.

Owner's Response: Thanks Judy and Luke, We haven't had reviews for over a year because all 6 of our guests came back for their third consecutive year. Thought it best to get some new ones so potential guests know we still have the same high standards. In fact, as you know, there were many upgrades. Already looking forward to seeing you again in February 2018!!

Still super!

  • 5 of 5

Sometimes things are not so good the second time around, but our revisit to this condo was just as enjoyable as on the first occasion last year. (See my review for December 2014).

A high level of continuing maintenance both of the property and of the surrounding Plantation estate ensures that standards of cleanliness, ambience and general comfort are not compromised at all.

All I would add to my first review is that the neighbours are congenial and that the owners continue to be extraordinarily pleasant to deal with. Oh.........and that the many avian neighbours - the ospreys, the sandhill cranes, the hawks, the herons, the egrets, the anhingas - all deserve a little mention for their delightful and occasionally comic contribution to the local scene!

We spent 6 delightful weeks in Dan and Becky’s condo. (March - April 2015). The condo is wonderful. We particularly liked the fact that it has lanais both front and back (pointing east for morning sun and west for afternoon sun and beautiful sunsets). There is also an outdoor patio with table and chairs. Dan and Becky were terrific hosts. They epitomize friendliness and graciousness and did everything they could to make our stay enjoyable. The community atmosphere is very welcoming. For the last several years we have spent March in Florida and this is the first condo where we had no hesitation in deciding to return next year. We are really looking forward to returning next March and April.

Paradise Found

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful condo with views of the golf course and a small lake. It was wonderful to sit on the patio and enjoy the views. The condo itself is well equiped and comfortable....a home away from home for sure. Although we didn't get a chance to meet the owners, they are wonderful to work with and very responsive. We've already booked for next year!

Great Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

A perfect setting in this charming and comfortable condo to get away from winter for a month! Dan and Becky were so easy to work with and we had the pleasure of being able to meet them and share some time together. It is decorated in a lovely Floridian decor, and we loved sitting on the screened lanai watching the various birds, golfers, and the alligator!

We have already booked to return next year...can't wait!
