Year Purchased: 2021

About the owner: Jeff and Joan live in Minnesota. We purchased this home to retire in when the time comes, and to have a place to visit for vacations, and for our adult children and grandchildren to also use occasionally for their vacations. We have a lake place and another residential home in Minneapolis. We are usually at our lake place on the weekends. Jeff is an avid fisherman, whether it’s river fly-fishing or lake fishing. But we both love to be on or near water. And we spend as much time as we can with our eleven grandchildren and traveling the world when time and money permit.

Why this property? We love the four bedrooms because we have five children and eleven grandchildren, and wanted enough space for each family to be comfortable. We also love the split bed floor plan, single level living, 5 patio doors with amazing views to the pool and canal, and sunsets. The pool is secluded from neighbors on both sides and the lanai is super large. It’s a great community with plenty of restaurants and events. Many restaurants have live music. Our street is a cul-de-sac and it is very quiet.

Stunning Home Rental

Perfect location on a cannel with a beautiful attached screened in pool and Lanai. Very spacious home, great for families. Four bedrooms-two bathrooms, two bedrooms and 1 bathroom walk out to Pool-Lanai area. You can also access the Pool-Lanai from the kitchen and living room area. This home is exceptionally clean and beautifully decorated and include everything you would need for a fabulous stay. We especially enjoyed the two bicycles, 6 beach chairs and wagon that you could used for a day at the beach. These home owners have thought of everything. Already booked a trip back in February!
