About Sonya MacAskill

We are from New Brunswick, Canada and fell in love with River Strand while visiting the area with friends. We purchased a unit in the condo building and vacationing here over two years, decided that this is where we want to retire. Upon our first visit to the Veranda Barrington model home, we loved it. We recently found this Barrington unit on River Hammock Drive and was lucky enough to sell our condo and buy this one. We absolutely love it and look forward to each and every visit!

Sonya MacAskill purchased this condo in 2016

Why Sonya MacAskill chose Florida South Central Gulf Coast

We chose this property because we always wanted to have a vacation home in the south, especially as we approach retirement. River Strand appealed to us because this community matches our active life style, it is close to beautiful beaches and I feel very safe staying within a gated community. Also, Outlet shopping is just a few miles away!

What makes this condo unique

There are many appealing features of this unit. The street - River Hammock Drive has the best views - the lake/golf and Manatee Reserve. It has an open floor plan with line of sight from the front lanai to the back lanai. The second floor is totally private - our private staircase brings guest to a lockable front screen door. The master bedroom has a large walk in closet, ensuite bath with double sink and beautiful view of lake. There is a one car garage and unit is within close walking distance of pool.

Great Rental

  • 5 of 5

This ground floor condo was neatly decorated, comfortable and well equipped. The building was very quiet and had a nice view of the golf course over a small pond which was home to much wildlife. We enjoyed many of the amenities that River Strand has to offer.

Great condo

  • 5 of 5

This was our third stay in River Strand and this condo was the best that we rented. It is located in a very quiet area of the complex, well decorated, furnished and well equipped. We felt at home and were truly satisfied of our stay. River Strand is an ideal destination, especially for golfers.

Above all, the owners made our stay very enjoyable and responded immediately to our questions and concerns. We recommend this unit to anyone who want to enjoy River Strand.

Beautiful condo/escape from winter snow

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at River Strand. This was our first experience as "snow-birds" and it was an excellent one in every way! The condo was wonderfully equipped for all our needs and the location with a pond and golf course view was excellent. We took full advantage of the golf course and tennis facilities at the club. Everyone we dealt with was friendly and helpful, the pool was literally steps away! There were plenty of shopping plazas, malls and many good restaurants within 2 to 10 miles. The owners were a joy to work with, as well as the property managers. All inquiries were answered promptly, usually the same day. We would recommend this unit to anyone and look forward to returning in the future.

Absolutely beautiful condo!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at River Strand and this wonderful condo. The pictures don't do it justice. This main floor condo is so peaceful with a gorgeous view of the lake and golf course. It was spotlessly clean, beautifully decorated and extremely well equipped. The owner was very accommodating and lovely to deal with. She was so helpful and returned our calls quickly. The heated pool was conveniently located beside the condo building just a few minutes walk. The River Strand community itself is a wonderful all-inclusive community that is well kept, very secure and picturesque. The scenic 27 hole golf course is well maintained and challenging. The location is close to major highways making it easy to get on to the interstate to many destinations, including just 10 minutes away from the Ellington Outlets. We would definitely recommend this property to family and friends and hope to visit again very soon.

We truly enjoyed our stay at this Riverstrand Condo. The condo is new and beautiful. It is fully equipped and spacious. What you see in the pictures is accurate. It is located on the main floor for easy access to anyone. The owner was very helpful in answering all our questions and we felt comfortable from the very beginning. Whether or not you are a golfer, you will love Riverstrand for what it offers. It is in a very friendly and safe community. We strongly recommend this condo and we intend to return.
