About The Owner
I am a single, retired middle-school principal from KY who then worked part time at the University of Louisville mentoring new teachers. As a result, my home-away-from-home is available for rental part of the year. I have furnished it to be stylish and filled with art and artifacts that make me smile. I have organized it to have all the comforts of casual living. Many of my renters have returned multiple years with one set returning for nine years. I love my time there on the golf course, in the pool or at the beach, and on the back lanai sitting and reading (or just sitting.) The city of Sarasota fills my shopping, dining, and artistic needs.
The Owner purchased this condo in 2000
Why The Owner chose Sarasota
Sarasota is a wonderful city with plenty to do. I love the arts, and there is always some show or concert or art fair to attend. I love the cool sand of the Siesta Key beach and the fun atmosphere of the Sunday night drum gathering at sunset. Because I was divorced, I wanted to live in a community where I could meet good fun-loving, caring friends who would join me for a round of golf, a dinner at the club house, an evening sharing going out, a good conversation round the pool about a book or a movie, or laugh and share lies and stories. I found it at Heritage Oaks. Most of my renters return for the amenities of the condo and the fun of the people in our end of the community. I have called this place my second home for the last ten years and have been blessed with good renters who love it too.
What makes this condo unique
My condo has a great view and great neighbors. I have great views of the sunsets over the lake and the signature golf hole. My neighbors are kind, helpful, fun, and interesting. Those are the two most important aspects of its location. My condo is also close to the most fun pool, near the mailboxes and garbage dumpsters, close to the back entrance of the community, and close to the walking trail. These little things make such a difference to comfort and ease of living.
