Located on road that leads west directly to downtown, beaches, shows, museums and bridge to St Armand's circle so all the greatest attractions and there are many are minutes away. If you go East just a few miles is a beautiful park that has the world's largest airboat with a glass bottom so you can watch the gators and giant bass and other fish glide beneath your feet as you explore the way Florida used to be.

Fantastic shopping in a very upscale atmosphere with many very fine restaurants and classy bistros for that delicious bisque with fine wine or mixed drink in some of the most naturally beautiful scenary in the world. Great artist colony that has grown with the restoration of home and school. The beauty of one of the Southwest's best horticulture centers and homes wows all.

Several stage productions and music venues right in Sarasota and just up the road in St Petersburg there is the Sun Dome which brings in top entertainers from around the world.
The Founder's Club Home Owners Association just advised me that minimum rental is for one year so cannot accept any short term rentals until sorted out. If you like to gamble, in less than an hour you are at the classy Hard Rock of Tampa with thousands of slots, black jack, etc. While in Tampa visit Ybor City, a hundred year old Spanish enclave where they roll cigars the old way and serve classic cuisine or see Bush Gardens , one of America's major tourist attractions with all types of rides and shows. Bern's steak house in Tampa is one of finest in world and boasts the world's largest wine collection and selection with thousands of choices in their multimillion dollar cellar and be sure to take the free tour of the kitchens and the wine cellars.
An hour south is Ft Myers and the lovely winter home and estate of Thomas Edison and the location where he developed the Victrola, Edison furniture, the first USA natural rubber for his friend, Firestone who sold tires to Ford as all three spent time in this the first prefab home in the USA which also claims the largest Banyan tree and natural gardens where Edison grew everything he needed from medications to desserts.

We were three couples escaping the awful northeast winter and fell into the perfect setting for our weeks vacation. The location was great, the home had everything we needed and it afforded us all the privacy each couple needed. We are already planning next year!
Exceptional Home and convenient location

Superb high end home with great pool and location. Close to beach and golf. Also very safe due to enclosed and guard protected community. Allowed us to stay away from chaos of Siesta beach but close enough to enjoy. Also kids got to enjoy IMG.

Owner Response:I have been fortunate to have exceptional guests stay at my home who care for it as their own. Each has left it with more than was there when they arrived although house is fully equipped and kept pristine. Thank you
