I happily assist my guests with anything they may need. I provide maps of the area and will point out local hotspots based on your interests. I work from home frequently but like to give my guests plenty of space and private time.
My home is in a quiet neighborhood on a dead end street. It is a beautiful area for morning and evening walks or jogs. My home is just minutes away from some of the most beautiful beaches on the Gulf. There are several grocery stores nearby including The Fresh Market, Publix, and Winn Dixie. There are also several excellent restaurants in the area.
Public transit (bus) to Anna Maria Island, downtown Bradenton, and Sarasota is available right up the street.
Well behaved pets will be considered to stay at my home. However, they must get along with my animals a small pug (Beetle) and a cat (Molly). Your pets must be house trained and free of fleas as we do not accept those critters here. Please note that we are not able to accommodate infants and toddlers due to the fact that our home is not child-proof and we do not have sleeping arrangements for them.

I am a biologist and love being outdoors, so Florida is perfect for me. I enjoy gardening, bird-watching, cooking, and kayaking. My husband Rich and I love to travel and enjoy having people from other places stay at our home. As your hosts, we will be more than happy to show you the best local spots for dining, outdoor recreation, or relaxation. We hope you will enjoy the amenities of our home and the beauty of this part of Florida. We are LGBT welcoming and respect all religions.
We love to travel and when we do, we always do a lot of research ahead of time because we enjoy learning about other cultures and natural areas. We are open to adventure and believe that the perfect experiences always just seem to fall into place.
