About Corrine and Kevin Shaw

On behalf of Corrine, Kevin and family, welcome to our River Strand Condo! We are a family of 5 with 3 wonderful adult children and one (so far) beautiful grand daughter, all of whom we love spending our time with! We are from Winnipeg, Manitoba in Canada. We enjoy Florida as an escape from the brisk Canadian winters and the chance to visit family along the gulf coast.

We enjoy golf, tennis, biking, swimming, beaches, shopping and dining. River Strand is the perfect location for all of these activities.

We invite you to enjoy our beautiful condo and all the amenities River Strand has to offer. You will have an amazing stay!

Corrine and Kevin Shaw purchased this condo in 2014

Why Corrine and Kevin Shaw chose Florida South Central Gulf Coast

Fantastic location in sunny Florida with stunning views, an abundance of amenities, 27 hole well maintained golf course, tennis, resort pools & hot tub, well equipped fitness centre, upscale club house with dining room, lounge and bar.

We have a property manager who lives in River Strand that are available to attend to your needs during your stay. We want to ensure that this is your best possible vacation experience!

This is a GREAT community! All other properties we viewed to purchase along the gulf coast could not compare!

What makes this condo unique

This condo has an amazing view of the golf course Estuary hole #7 and water views with unique bird watching! You get the best of both worlds right in front of you! You can watch the complete play from tee off to putting in on the green. Estuary hole#7 has been named as one of the most beautiful holes on the course and many say that it is also the hardest. Between the birds and the golfers, this view is very entertaining!

The condo is impeccably kept and very well maintained. It is fully furnished with everything you could possibly need for a luxurious comfortable stay.

The facilities at River Strand offer something for everyone. When not enjoying all that River Strand has to offer this condo is the perfect place to relax on the screened-in lanai enjoying the view.

Great Stay in a Beautiful Condo

  • 5 of 5

We liked our stay in River Strand very much. The condo is very nice and has everything you need. It has a great view over the most difficult hole of the whole golf course so it was fun to sit outside and talk about what went wrong there last time and what to try next :). The club house, restaurant and the big swimming pool are in easy walking distance, nice facilities and good service everywhere. The golf course is very good, with 27 holes and also lots of nature and wild life. We also liked the location of River Strand in terms of shopping and other activities. Corinne and Kevin are very nice hosts. We will come back and we can truly reccommend this condo and community.

Delightful stay

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this condo. Very comfortable and well equipped. View of seventh hole of golf course was beautiful and entertaining. We enjoyed many relaxing morning coffees watching golfers go by. Also found the golf affordable and challenging. Also found the property managers very responsive and helpful. Will definitely be returning. Thanks Corinne and Kevin

Lovely Condo

  • 5 of 5

The condo is lovely. The location is very central with easy access to the interstate. Beaches, shopping, and other fun activities are close by, plus the amenities that River Strand offers! The condo overlooks the 7th hole and offers views of a pond with all the antics of the wildlife and the golfers! River Strand is a very well maintained and welcoming gated community. Kevin and Corrine are the nicest people to work with! They have put a great deal of thought into making your stay (however long!) very enjoyable, providing many of the comforts of home without having to pack them. It was our pleasure to stay there while our new home was under construction.

Great Spot to call home for awhile or to vacation

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I rented this condo for three months over the summer while we house hunted in the area. The condo itself is well appointed and has everything you need for a long stay like us or if you are just vacationing. The Lanai has a great view of the 7th hole of the Estuary course and a very large pond that always had some wildlife to see. It was a great spot for our morning coffee and an excellent spot to view the wonderful Florida sunsets. The River strand community itself is also very nice. You have several pools to choose from with the main one at the club house on par with or better than a high end resort. There is also 27 holes of golf to play, tennis courts,tiki bar, restaurant and a fitness center. We also enjoyed just walking or jogging around the neighborhood. We picked this condo for its central location for my wife and her new job but also its proximity to Tampa Airport (50 min), Anna maria Island, Longboat key,Siesta key and Lido key which were all about 30 minutes away give or take. There is lots of shopping near by with the outlet malls just up the road or the new UTC mall which has just about everything. The owners were very accommodating and excellent to work with. If you are looking for a spot to enjoy some Florida sunshine that gives you lots of options I would recommend this condo. In fact, we liked the area so much we bought a house just a couple miles away. Thanks for sharing your Condo!

Best Vacation Ever!!!

  • 5 of 5

We totally enjoyed our time in this beautifully appointed condo in River Strand which had so much to offer. The community is close to major shopping areas, island beaches and the highway if venturing to Tampa, Sarasota or Naples. Although the large resort style pool and tiki bar was available we found ourselves taking a short walk to a smaller pool overlooking the golf course which allowed us to enjoy a quiet, relaxing day. The condo itself had everything you could possibly need. The view from the very private lanai of the golf course and pond was incredible. The condo was super clean and beautifully furnished. The owners were so easy to work with and quick to respond to questions. They were in touch to make sure we arrived safely and followed up to see if there was anything else they could do to make our stay more comfortable and enjoyable. The owners even provided tennis racquets, cooler, beach chairs. This place is a perfect ten!!!
