Lovely home with swimming pool offers access to many attractions and Florida beaches. The University of Florida (home of the Fla. Gators) is a mile away and is visitor-friendly with frequent sports events, concerts, theater, museums, historic buildings and art galleries. Within a 2-hr. drive are beaches on both coasts with all the amenities. Ask about our beachfront condo, offered as a nearby getaway. And don't forget the pool for frequent, backyard dips and cook-outs on the spacious screened porch.
Our neighborhood is only two blocks from shopping malls, banks, restaurants and other conveniences. A large, open kitchen and great room are perfect for sports-watching on the large-screen TV. The neighborhood is quiet and shady with many hardwood trees and walking, biking opportunities. After seeing the local sites, you may want to visit Disney World, a 2-hr. drive away, the famous Florida beaches and other sites which a central location makes accessible.
Our location is sure to please the most discriminating visitor--Florida at its finest!
If you are interested, we can make arrangements for you to stay at our beachfront condo which sleeps a family of 4. This little 'extra' gives our property the advantages of city and beach living while you are in Florida. Our condo is an easy 2-hr. drive from Gainesville in Daytona Beach with its beautiful beaches, International Speedway, many attractions and first-class restaurants and entertainment. Write today to find out more!
From our close-in location in Gainesville, you can bike or walk to shopping, theater, restaurants, banks, professional offices, just about anything you may need for your stay, without leaving the area. Bus routes are city-wide and available a few short blocks from the home. A quiet, safe neighborhood awaits your peaceful stay where you can bike or walk in comfort and safety. An ideal place to relax beside the pool, with complete privacy or have an evening bar-b-q on the grill. A safer and more convenient location cannot be found anywhere!
I am a writer/retired educator and librarian; my mate has a landscape and remodeling business. We have three grown children, who only occasionally travel with us. We love to travel and would like to use this home-swapping opportunity to see more of the northeastern US and possibly other areas. Our other interests are reading, sports, home-building, swimming, theater and the arts. We are both graduates of the University of Florida: I in Educational Administration/Library Science and Dennis in Animal Science/construction. We have wide interests, so love to explore local attractions, especially National Register locations, about which I am writing a book at present.
I grew up in Florida and Dennis is from Wisconsin. Our children live in Washington State (near Seattle), Galveston and Tampa, Fl, so we spend some time traveling each year. We also have many local friends and enjoy entertaining in our great room---Florida sports events on TV, parties with neighbors and old friends from school.
Between working, swimming, walking, entertaining and lovingly caring for our beautiful home, we stay quite busy, but would love an opportunity to travel more in the future, preferably in the spring through summer.
We will be happy to give more particulars about our home and area, if there is interest.
