You play golf, the ladies enjoy a day of pampering.........that's the first argument resolved!!!!

Guest Feedback: Robin, loved the property in particular the very comfortable living room. The greens at River Strand G.C. were the most challenging that we have yet encountered! Will book again for next February. (Tony Morris - Feb 2008)
All going well, your house is beautiful and in a really lovely location. We've spent today by the pool making the most of the sunshine. (Sue Ash. May 2008)
Robin, Holiday home was lovely, great location, beautifully furnished.
Had a wonderful week there, strongly recommend to stay if wishing to visit Gulf Islands, Tampa, Clearwater areas all really close by. (Alistair Dutton May 2008)
I am a 58 year old retired business executive previously working in the aviation sector. As an enthusiastic golfer, I have always loved the Sarasota area and took the plunge in 2008 buying this property outright.
In addition to this villa, my wife an I have an extensive portfolio of other properties in Europe and USA. We are completely committed to providing the best possible guest experience and have been rewarded by the fact that over 60% of our guests have returned each year to enjoy that 'home from home' experience.
This villa backs onto a lake and is therefore not overlooked. This means that you can laze by the pool, take in the views of the local wildlife and with luck you'll spot our resident alligator...........don't worry he's only around 5 foot!!!
