About Elena

I am an adopted Canadian, originally from Argentina. With husband Ted we have been dividing our time, in recent years, between St. John's, Newfoundland and Newbury, Ontario. More recently we added Sarasota as our haven away from the Canadian winter.

Elena purchased this condo in 2013

Why Elena chose Florida South Central Gulf Coast

When we decided to spend winters in Florida, we drove all over the state, from St. Augustine to the Panhandle, stopping in many coastal towns and cities to get a feel for that special one. After two days in Sarasota we were both completely sure that this is the place for us. The combination of climate, superb beaches, a strong arts program (we are classical music lovers) and a myriad of amenities in a friendly community pulled us in. We chose Avista after renting in several places. In fact, we first rented the condo we now own. The neighbours are very nice and friendly, very helpful, and the peace and quiet, with the great, soothing view at the back made this condo very attractive. The layout of the condo is very convenient, it is spacious and bright, has a cathedral ceiling which adds to the feeling of space and there are several areas for comfortable entertaining and for privacy, yet there is this open and airy feeling. We like the separate, large garage and the short steps to the pool, yet we can't hear any of the activities there as there are trees and vegetation in between.

What makes this condo unique

According to most Avista residents, we have a great location combining a short drive to excellent beaches with very close proximity to top notch shopping and restaurants, yet with easy access to downtown and St. Armand's Circle. Everybody likes the fact that Avista is a small community (less than 90 units) and the neighbours are friendly to temporary guests. You will not be a stranger for long! There are monthly potlucks where a visitor can meet the residents in an open, relaxed atmosphere.

Great Condo: Close to Everything

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful visit to this Condo in the Avista sub division, this is just off University Parkway in Sarasota. We love this area and go down every year. 15 minutes to the Siesta Key Beaches, Sarasota downtown, wonderful dining and the new world class mall. Quiet neighborhood to walk or run for exercise.

Elena and Ted's condo was perfect. It is updated, has comfortable furnishings, wireless internet and great views overlooking the golf course at Palm Air Country Club. Just across the parking area a wonderful pool and hot tub. Pool area also includes a gas grill which we used. I highly recommend this rental. Elena and Ted were very helpful with the arrangements. Great visit and close to everything.

I stayed in this lovely Condo for 4 months.!!!! I would highly recommend renting it's very clean and modern up to date inside with appliances. Its convenient to the new mall in the area and also the interstate also outlet malls nearby as well. The decoration inside is very well done. The neighbors are great in the area and very helpful with information about the area. Short commute to beaches I would definitely return again if i'm ever in the Sarasota area.

We spent three wonderful months in Avista this year. The condo was great!!! Everything we needed was in the condo and ready for our use. The view from the lanai is very nice, the beautiful sunsets, the golfers going by, the birds and a good place (and distance) to watch the 'gator.

The owner is extremely anxious to make sure all is in good shape for renters. The condo was very clean, comfortable furniture and bedding, good assortment of dishes, glassware, cookware and linens. The rooms are decorated very nice. The neighbors are extremely friendly and pleasant whether at the pool or just passing by.

The condo, located in the Avista community of Palm Aire, is convienent to all shopping including groceries, clothing, sports, etc. A prime shopping center is opening this fall which will include many top national stores. The resturants in the area are very good with a large varity of menus to fit all tastes. The Sarasota airport is just a short drive, the Dog Racing Track is also very close. A bit further is downtown Sarasota with many places eat and enjoy. The beaches, especially Siesta Key, are short drives away and are wonderful places to visit. Siesta Key is the No. 1 beach in the country. A must see even if not a beach lover.

We were extremely pleased with this condo. Would recommend that it be put on the top of your list to check out. We know you would be as pleased as we were!!
