Florida was always our vacation paradise, and now we have moved to the area and can provide even more TLC for our vacation property and guests. Our parents purchased the family's beautiful place on the beach in the early 1970s after searching for an appealing property on Longboat Key, where we had first vacationed in the 1950s. Our family spent many happy family vacations in various Gulf Coast areas, but Longboat Key was our favorite. We strive to provide our Casa del Mar property with tender loving care, as our parents did. It's a great family resource that we have enjoyed sharing with other vacationing families. Our extended family continues to enjoy introducing successive generations to this wonderful home away from home. Some of us are avid fishermen, some collect shells, some dive into the rich musical opportunities in Sarasota. ALL of us enjoy the natural beauty of our beach and sunsets, and feel refreshed and invigorated by our vacations in this magnificent seashore setting.
