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:

This charming and comfortable home is perfectly located to ensure a most pleasant stay in the Downtown Sarasota area. It is beautifully appointed, decorated, supplied and maintained for maximum pleasure and convenience. The (on-site) owners are truly lovely and took great pride and care to ensure our enjoyment and comfort. We HIGHLY recommend it and wouldn't hesitate to return.
