Florida rental

Friends, readers – do you have a hankering to get out of the winter wind and lie in the sun? Well do I have an offer for you. My brother and I own our mother’s bright, comfortable, fully furnished condo on Anna Maria Island, between Tampa and Sarasota in a pretty and unpretentious part of Florida – bay and swimming pool on one side, endless white sand beach on the other. The condo is on the market for sale, but in the meantime it’s available for renting for one month at a time, with an exception for friends – if you’re a friend, or the friend of a friend, the rules can be bent to more short-term rentals.

Please let me know if you’re interested in learning more, and I will send pictures and information.
