About Sylviane OFFROY

We are French and share our life between Florida and France .

We have a very happy retirement in Sarasota , where we have the opportunity to practice a lot of sports (golf, tennis, bike, rowing, walking...) and have also many cultural activities (theatre, opera, museums, library...), great shopping and restaurants.

Sylviane OFFROY purchased this house in 2013

Why Sylviane OFFROY chose Anna Maria Island

Because of golf, beaches, sun, and so many activities in this specific place, we fell in love USA , Florida , Sarasota and our house in University Park Country Club

That's why our Floridian house is not only a house, it's a home !

What makes this house unique

It's so great to wake up with the sun and to have a drink with the sunset on the pool and the Preserve Area.

Nature is gorgeous all around and very peaceful. Nights are quiet

It's the exactly place to be with family and friends

It's like a youth bath.

The pictures of this house do not do it justice, we were so impressed when we arrived. The home is not only clean but beautifully decorated as well. Our children loved the beautiful pool and enjoyed swimming in it daily. The layout of the house was very nice and spacious and the master suite was just amazing. The home is located in a very nice gated community, the community itself was just as beautiful as the home, everything is well kept and the landscaping is absolutely beautiful. The house is located very close to a new beautiful mall and plenty of other shops and restaurants, as well as the many beautiful beaches there that were only 15-20 mins away. The homeowner was amazing and answered any and all questions we had. I would definitely recommend this home to anyone and can't wait to go back to visit again.

Great location for a family trip!

  • 4 of 5

We had a great trip with family! Everything was well put together and welcoming. From early morning swims to grilling out to riding bikes in the neighborhood - we enjoyed everything this house had to offer. The pool was a constant source of entertainment for the kids and the adults enjoyed the comfy seating around the pool. The master bedroom and bath are huge and definitely provided a great quiet side of the house. Having grown up in Sarasota- this was the first time we had to rent a place 'at home', but we hope to make this our 'home' for a week or two next summer too.

A wonderful vacation

  • 5 of 5

The property was well maintained and the appliances were all in excellent condition. The drive to the beach was not a problem and shopping was easy with everything within a short drive. The heated pool provided plenty of relaxing hours and helped when our grandchildren came to visit. The area is beautiful for walking and just relaxing

Stunning home + paradise location = happy vacation

  • 5 of 5

With our 3 children we spend a wonderful vacation in Florida along the Golf of Mexico. We rented this beautiful house and could not have been happier. It is very spacious, spotless and delightfully decorated. With four bedrooms and three bathrooms, it was comfortable for the entire family.

The house is located in a gorgeous nature reserve along a large golf course. The outdoor activities are endless. Our boys really enjoyed the special tennis court surface.

We were impressed by the owners warm welcome. They certainly went the extra mile to make us feel at home. We shall be back!

We spent two weeks in this nice home with my husband and friends and our vacation was a real success

It was exactly like the pictures and description on the website. We lacked nothing, everything was there

The house is beautifully decorated, well maintained, very bright and very clean.

University Park Country Club is a beautiful golf course. Environment and nature is beautiful. Beaches are lovely

And everything is close to home: shopping, restaurants, downtown, beaches, Sarasota airport

Stay successful. We hope to return soon
