Seeing the Manatees

One of the things that Richard and I haven't done yet on a trip to Florida is go and see the manatees when they come into the inland waters between the months of November to April.

Nothing beats seeing an animal in its natural suroundings though and so a trip to one of the state parks such as Blue Springs  is a must do activity on our next visit. Blue Springs is approximately 1 hour and 18 minutes away from the villa.......Read the full article...

The end of Wet n Wild

I have just returned from a business lunch during which I was chatting to a colleague about the fact that we own the villa in Florida. She was soon reminiscing about the last time she had a holiday in Orlando, which was when she was ten, some 30 years ago! The two places she remembered very clearly, along with Disney of course, were Kennedy Space Centre and Wet n Wild. I told her that Wet n Wild is set to close permanently at the end of 2016 which surprised her as she would no doubt be remembering it in all its glory from her childhood. We too.......Read the full article...

How it all began

For a couple of years before deciding to buy our villa in Florida we had been watching the television programme “Escape To The Winter Sun” in which couples were shown various properties in locations around the world where they were thinking of buying a home. Whenever the programme featured Florida we both found ourselves wishing it could be us as we were so impressed by both the houses and the locations which were absolutely amazing. We knew then that having somewhere in Florida that we could enjoy for holidays with our own family a.......Read the full article...
