Janet and Chris, with their three kids and Golden Doodle puppy, live in Hopkinton, Massachusetts. The picture above shows Janet and the kids on a dolphin cruise off Manasota Key this summer... lots of dolphins!!
With a relatively young family (kids are 13, 12 and 9), Janet and Chris are frequently found on any number of soccer, softball and/or football fields as well as drama and musical production venues, supporting their kids' passion for sports, teamwork, and the Arts.
While Janet and Chris both earned their undergraduate degrees in the Northeast, they didn't meet until their late 20s after career excursions to LA, NY and DC for Janet and global travels with the US Navy for Chris. Currently, Janet runs a family business and Chris works in the engineering field outside of Boston.
We found our 'Vienna' Paradise home in the search for a family vacation spot that could handle large and small gatherings of friends and family - and give us a retirement dream-home to enjoy long before we actually retired. The open feel of the villa-style home's floor plan, combined with its high-end amenities and quiet setting on Manasota Key, immediately gave them the feel of a beach home escape without any of the worries of being directly on the ocean. The 'Vienna' reference is to Janet's favorite Billy Joel song... check it out.... This place is ALL ABOUT SLOWING DOWN.
The 'old world' Florida ambiance of Manasota Key makes this a true oasis from the hustle and bustle of suburban life back home. We lose ourselves in days filled with going from the pool to the beach and back to the pool again. And, we love that water sports are five minutes away and day-trip options abound with outings to water parks, zoos, semi-pro ball parks, and museums - not to mention lots of cultural arts activities in Sarasota, Venice and Englewood.
