About Kim Pitts

I met my husband over 32 years ago in Sarasota and decided that here I would stay. Ross is a native Sarasotan who showed me the beauty of Sarasota thru catamaran sailing the Gulf waters and canoeing the Myakka and Peace River Ecoppo-systems. We have lived in this neighborhood for a combined total of 83 years and continue to call it home. We take pride in our rental property as evidenced with its amenities and comforts.

Kim Pitts purchased this House in 2013

Why Kim Pitts chose Southgate

The many live-oaks on and around the property were planted by my husband and his family 60 years ago. They offer cooling shade in the summer afternoons and host to a variety of wildlife, including hawks, woodpecker varieties and songbirds. The nearby park is home to egrets, waterfowl, turtles and ibis. Evenings are perfect for a stroll with a well lit pathway and water fountain. There is a playground at the northwest corner of Arlington Park past the Olympic pool facilities that are available to the public for 4.00 per person per day.

                                                                  Daniel R.

                                                                  We were very happy with our choice to stay here. The house was very clean, and our kids loved the pool. The house was in a nice, safe and quiet location and a short drive to restaurants, and shops. We had a great relaxing vacation, and would recommend this property to anyone.

                                                                  Perfect stay

                                                                  Ashley F.

                                                                  The property was perfect for us! My husband and I brought our 11 month old son down for a family wedding so we needed space for us and the baby to each have our own rooms, plus another room for my mother in law to stay and watch him. The house was well layed out and seemed to have everything we needed! We even had my family over the next day for Easter and enjoyed the pool deck and back yard. The only issue is that the ac unit in one of the bedrooms upstairs wasn’t working but we didn’t need to use that room and I imagine the property owners would have been quick to fix it if we had let them know.

                                                                  Cozy home away from home

                                                                  Beth O.

                                                                  The property was amazing. The location was perfect.

                                                                  Maui SmileAbingdon

                                                                  I can't say enough about how nice this home was, and how helpful and kind Kim was. We have used VRBO many times and have always been satisfied, but this place and Kim have been the best so far. Kim was so kind and accommodating. It was a pleasure to work with her. Her home is just as the pictures show, it is beautiful. The park next door was amazing, and good restaurants, beautiful beaches, grocery stores, and the Orioles stadium were very close. So it was easy to get around. The pool at the house was very nice, but unfortunately it was a little too cold to use it. We will definitely be back, and I would highly recommend this home to anyone. You will surely be pleased if you stay here!! Thanks again Kim for your awesome hospitality!!

                                                                  I love the house and location.

Especially loved the large covered porch, pool & awesome walking trail/park/pond rt next door. The owners were friendly, responsive & welcoming. Recommend this house to anyone looking.
