More about us

  1. I am Richard Ouellette, my wife Josephine and I, use the condo unit ourselves the months of January, to end of March most times and swap or take points and make it available for homeforexchange, the remainder of the year. (It is comfortable, and very clean),
    Non simultaneous exchanges are preferred. I am a Real Estate broker, and my wife is a retired pharmaceutical company office manager. My mother and father were both from Quebec,Canada. I do speak, write, and read french, a little Italian, and Spanish. We have 2 sons, one is a private chef, who spent a year in France interning. The other son owns and operates a native produce market. Our home is in Enfield Connecticut. My cell, 860-543-9106. The condo (Apartment) is our vacation, 2nd. home... Anna Maria Island (Bradenton Beach) is located about 60 miles south of the Tampa Florida international airport (TPA), About an hour drive... There is a closer but not international airport. Bradenton/ Sarasota Airport,(SRQ)about 25 minutes away (Smaller). Florida is a wonderful place to visit, and stay any time of the year. If you are from a warm climate, you will love it Winter, spring and Autumn. If your from a colder climate you will love it anytime. Sarasota, the cultural capital of Florida, and Ringling Bros. Barnum Bailey Museum, and many other attractions are about 25 minutes away.. we can walk to 8 nice restaurants. two are on the beach. we are an hour rom Bush Gardens,and 2 1/2 to Disney land. ,3 hours to Miami. and more
    The island is in between Sarasota bay, and the Gulf of Mexico. There is always a breeze. Even in July and August we have a breeze. The only time it is cooler is in January... A few nights may go down about 50F or 5-10 C. If there is a cold front passing... But the days are always
    warm. We would be glad to do an exchange anytime try us.
