About Zach Duncan

My wife, Lindy, and I live down the road from Cortez in Lakeland, FL. We love getting over to the condo at every chance to enjoy the beach and laid back atmosphere of Cortez and Anna Maria Island. We hope you'll enjoy it as much as we do. Zach

Zach Duncan purchased this condo in 2011

Guestbook comments from the owner

My wife and I came down for my birthday and had a blast! The condo was the perfect place for a weekend hanging out at the beach, eating at great restaurants, and touring some of the places in Sarasota. We ate at Star Fish, and it was wonderful. Spent a day touring Sarasota. We went to the Mote Aquarium and to the Ringling Estate and Art Museum. We also did some shopping on Pine Ave on Anna Maria ending with a walk down the City Pier and a glass of wine while overlooking Tampa Bay. Just the tip of the ice berg on all the things to do in the area. We only get to come down here for weekends, but you can come down for a whole season. You will not be disappointed! Fun times!
