About Kenneth Duff

We live in Newfoundland, Canada but love to spend time in sunny, warm Sarasota. We purchased this place for our personal use.

Kenneth Duff purchased this condo in 2010

Why Kenneth Duff chose Florida South Central Gulf Coast

We chose Sarasota because of all that it offers, golf, beaches, the visual and performing arts, which it is so well known for, and the great restaurants. We chose Serenata because of the lush grounds and the true feeling that you are on a resort. It is a very well planned, upscale and peaceful location.

What makes this condo unique

Inside the gates of Serenata is the clubhouse with a fitness center, pool table and library. There is a beautiful pool and a tennis court.

It is a short walk to Publix, Starbucks, a pharmacy, restaurants, cinema and other amenities. Walmart is a little further, but still close. And a couple of miles away is the University Town Centre (UTC) with some of the best shopping in Florida.

Comfortable, Bright Condo - Great Location

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay here this year.

This condo is located in a lowrise complex of about six buildings that are beautifully landscapped and gated. There is a central clubhouse adacent to the pool that houses a full gym with a good variety of equipment. The location, just off University Parkway is a plus. You can walk to Starbucks or Publix or Panera bread. The beaches, golf, shopping and the malls are a short drive. Also there are a huge number of palces to eat along University Parkway.

The condo itself is newly furnished and very comfortable! From the beds to the living room couch and big chairs.....you can really relax here. Nothing is missing, the kitchen is fully equipped, appliances are fairly new, washer dryer....basic supplies....everything has been well thought out. The screened lanai is a great place to sit with a glass of wine and look over the adjacent 'lake'.

It was spotless when we arrived and exactly as it is shown in the photos. I particularly enjoyed the huge flat screen TV in the living room, the wireless high speed internet and unlimited long distance.

This is a great place to stay in Sarasota. The owners were extremely helpful and very friendly. You will not be disappointed.
