About the Owner:

Happily married to my husband, Tim, of 25 years. We read about Pine Island in the Florida Sportsman magazine in 2004, while living in San Diego, and came out for a vacation. We fell in love with everything about the island and bought a second home in 2005, which we flew back and forth across country to use four times a year for over ten years. After a few years, we decided to retire here. Our dream finally came true and as of May, 2015, we live on Pine Island full time. We bought a unit at Four Winds when we got here in May, because over the years we enjoyed the marina so much, loved the private Four Winds Condo community, and wanted access to the fishing and outer islands at the north end of Pine Island. We also wanted a place to rent out to guests, have available for family to stay when visiting, and for Tim and I to use whenever it wasn't occupied

I am active, adventurous woman who loves the outdoors and island lifestyle. My favorite activities are biking, kayaking, fishing, boating and swimming. I'm passionate about traveling all over the world and love to meet people from various places and to learn about diverse cultures. I enjoy eating local ethnic foods. My favorite countries are the Caribbean islands, Europe, Fiji, Bali, Thailand. And of course, my favorite place and home - Pine Island, FL
