About Petrija Jen

We have come to claim Florida as our second home. Originally we transplanted ourselves here from NJ and have since come to enjoy the sun all year round and only now go to visit the snow. Ironic as it may seem, but we love not having to shovel snow or warming up our cars in the winters to get the frost off the windshields! Come and see what Florida is all about.

Petrija Jen purchased this house in 2014

Why Petrija Jen chose Florida South Central Gulf Coast

Great location and so near the beach with plenty to do in the Sarasota area with only about an hour's drive to Tampa!

Other airports are Sarasota -Bradenton airport, or Fort Myers airport

What makes this house unique

I think our little surprise retreat hut is just the coolest thing around! We put it together and I haven't seen anyone in our area with such a cute hut. We enjoy relaxing in it and being away from everyone!

Perfect Family Home

  • 5 of 5

House was in great condition and had everything you need for your stay. Great location, at the end of a cul-de-sac, in a quiet neighborhood. Owners were easy to work with on all transactions before and during our stay. Would recommend this house to anyone vacationing in Siesta Key.
