ABOUT US :
My husband Ed and I purchased this property for our family of 5 in 1999 because it is so close to the beach (700 ft) you can smell the Gulf air. The townhouse is tucked away on the back corner of a very private, quiet, safe for children col de sac on Gulf Drive. My kids were 2, 3 and 5 when we bought, over time we brought their friends in high school and now they are in their 20's and still love it and bring their friends frequently. My parents now 89 and 86 also spent many years enjoying Whispering Palms and had met so many wonderful friends and made many new memories. Ed and I have invited many couples over time which the Island has become our friends favorite getaway! We never need to worry about driving while on the island because there is a free Trolley and free "Monkey Bus" (tips only) which will pick you up and go anywhere on the Island to St Armand Circle in Sarasota and some restaurants over the Manatee and Cortez bridge. No need to drive anywhere. So many activities to do including Jet skiing, kayaking, fishing, biking and parasailing to name a few. Everything to do on an Island is at your fingertips! Outdoor private shower off the bonus room! Heated Swimming pool, beautiful sunsets to walk to beach for happy hour ... Everything provided for you to go the beach, relax and enjoy Island living...restaurants, shopping etc. all in walking distance.
