Hi, we're Elwin & Diana!

My wife Diana and I grew up in Suriname/South America, lived for many years in Amsterdam/The Netherlands. We've lived in many cities in different countries but have been calling Sarasota "home" for 21 years. We love the beautiful natural setting of Downtown on the bay and Sarasota's pristine beaches. We both love Nature and created our own nature sanctuary in our back yard right here in Downtown Sarasota.
We love our Gillespie Park neighborhood with lovely old cottages, a lot of them being restored now.
We are interested in different cultures and meeting people with diverse backgrounds.
Elwin loves to exercise, walk and to work in the yard and keeps up with everything changing and new in our neighborhood and the City of Sarasota.
Diana likes to keep up with the latest movies, enjoys reading and contributes to maintenance of the cottage.
When inspiration hits we also like to take decorating the interior of our home to a higher level.

Here is our property:

Location, location, location! Ideally located charming cottage near downtown, with one bedroom, one bath and den. Built in 1928 and recently completely renovated to modern standards. Tastefully decorated, clean and comfortable with an enclosed front porch perfect for people...

Me and my girlfriend had a great time in the cottage. It was even better than on the pictures and the description. We directly felt in love with it upon arrival. We were there for one week and everything was so easy. The cottage was absolutely clean and lovely designed and it is located near to everything (beaches, downtown, shopping). Elwin and Diana are perfect hosts. Thank you so much!
