About Joseph Tufo & Ivana O'Brien

I am a Professional Photographer and Mechanical Services Sales Consultant with an Engineering Sales business based in the London Area. I am married with two adult children. For over 30years I have been fascinated with travel whether for work or business. I enjoy a variety of sports and hobbies including fishing, football, tennis, golf, scuba diving and photography of course. In The UK have a collection of over 100 Bonsai trees and a Koi Pond that I love to sit and watch. I enjoy mainly outdoor pursuits but also love to watch TV and film and the occasional online Playstation moment!

Joseph Tufo & Ivana O'Brien purchased this villa in 2010

Why Joseph Tufo & Ivana O'Brien chose Sabal Harbour

As a Professional photographer having travelled around the world, when we found an opportunity to buy a home in Sabal Harbour, we jumped at the chance. There is so much to see and photograph and I end up spending hours in front of the computer sorting through hundreds of images whether its the amazing wildlife, fauna and flora or underwater images of the many reefs off the Gulf coast. I am a keen sportsman so in Sabal Harbour we have our own tennis, basketball and volleyball courts just a few hundred yards around he corner. Golf is just a short walk to Peridia Golf and Country club. My other passion easily catered to here is Fishing whether it is with a fly on our 40ft lakeside frontage or local sea or river fishing, the famous River Braden & Manatee are just a short Cycle ride away.

What makes this villa unique

With the wonderful year round sunshine I chose Florida over Spain or Italy, our other two potential choices, as the weather is so much kinder here and there is more freedom to express and enjoy your interests. The Floridians are always kind and polite and often willing to assist you without asking. Unlike The Orlando area we have access to great beaches water sports and far more cultural activities. The food here is as diverse as anywhere, with great restaurants including theme restaurants such as the 'Old Salty Dog' and 'Yoders' Mormon restaurant recently featured on Man vs Food just a short drive away. But whatever restaurant the service always seems to be with a genuine Sarasotan smile!

Fantastic villa, very well equipped & great value!

  • 5 of 5

Great villa. Very clean and fully equipped for a family break. Perfect pool to relax/cool down in from the Florida sun and loads of room to relax/prepare food and for sleeping. Really close to great restaurants and facilities/supermarkets. Good location for driving to beaches/malls and about 90 mins from Disney too! The hosts were amazingly efficient, friendly and responsive. Highly recommended!

This home was very clean, had modern furnishings and was well equipped. The area is in a quiet and safe neighbourhood. Very close to great shopping and the highways. We certainly enjoyed the clean, salt water pool and spa. A perfect spot to enjoy a relaxing vacation!

FANTASTIC STAY ..................... PERFECT

  • 5 of 5

Had a fantastic stay at the house with 5 friends. Beautifully decorated, spacious with the added bonus of a pool and Jacuzzi. Within easy reach of the beautiful beaches, nothing like watching the sunset whilst sipping a cocktail having spent a relaxing day on the pure, white, sandy beach - heaven. Close to large shopping outlet for a bit of retail therapy.

Overall and fantastic stay and would definitely recommend it to anyone wanting a relaxing holiday in a beautiful location.

Just what we needed

  • 5 of 5

Had a lovely time here. Exactly as described and had everything we needed for 2 families totalling 8. Pool and hot tub was used daily and enjoyed watching all the birds come and go from the lake. Lovely neighbourhood to go for walks and made use of the well kept basketball courts, tennis courts and playground. You can not find another place to compare for this price. We would definitely recommend visiting myakka state park and take the boat tour to see the alligators.
