We have many Canadians come to Myrtle Beach, SC in the wintertime. We always have plenty of things to do, golf, shopping, dining, fishing, entertainment. We have similar climate as Florida and have been fortunate with the weather over the last 15 years. Give me a call if I can assist you with some properties in SC.

Hi Sophie,

Just 20 minutes north of Orlando, Lake County offers many different lifestyles. We have very rural, rural, as well as suburban areas. Lake County is located in Central Florida, we do have many beautiful lakes, however you do not have to reside on Lakefront property.

I have posted a link to my website, and to the County website also. Please visit them for a taste of Lake County.

Hi Sophie,
Although Sarasota is on the Gulf coast and we have beautiful beaches, we're also considered the "Cultural Gem" in SW Florida. I recommend you take a look at my website. On the top right corner there is a quick video that may lend additional insight to our lifestyle.
If you would like additional info, please don't hesitate to make contact and I would be pleased to share Sarasota with you.
Good Luck!
