Hi, we're Jon & Marcia!

Marcia & I retired at 51 in Sept 2011, I left GlaxoSmithKlien after 30 years as a computer Tech. Marcia let the Dept. of Transportation as a Engineering Tech. We moved aboard our sailboat and headed south.. We both grew up in Oshkosh, Wi and moved to Raleigh, NC in 1974. Started sailing Hobie Cat's and having dreams cruising the islands.. Well Dreams do come through.. Along the way mom was renting this lovely double wide in Floral Lake Retirement community, Bartow, Fl for 4 to 6 months in the winter.. No one else was living there in the summer. We ended up purchasing it in 2005. We love it but we love sailing to the Bahamas in the winter and visting Oshkosh to see our granchildren in the summer. Someday we will slow down and spend the winters in Floral Lake's but for now you can rent our home.. Please enjoy it as much as we do..
