Year Purchased: 2017
About the owner: My husband Bob & I are retired teachers from the suburbs of Philadelphia. Shortly after our children left the nest, we decided to move "down the shore" to Somers Pt., NJ. This is our full-time home.
We have done a bit of traveling throughout the U.S. and abroad: Mex., Canada, Ireland, Greece, Italy, France, England, Scotland, Switzerland, Bermuda and the Carribbean.
We have also done some travels with a purpose: rebuilding after devastating fires in central florida, bringing needed supplies to orphanages, prisons & drug rehabs in Russia, helping the natives build fuel efficient stoves & water-filters in Guatemala, Church construction in Mexico City (post 1986 earthquake) & fresh water well drilling in Haiti.
Why this property? Now that we are seniors, The Villages looked like the ideal place to escape the cold of the winter months and to be a get-away for us. Knowing that we will only be using our home on a part-time basis has motivated us to share our little paradise with others. We hope your stay will be fun, comfortable & filled with adventure!
