Hi, At the present time I'm more interested in renting a condo or apt. on the west side of Charlotte Harbor or along the coast  from Placido  to Grove City  or anywhere in Rotonda. I'd like to live there for a year before making a decision to buy and where I would prefer to be. At the present time I am living in subsidized housing so will be looking for a low rent that is pet friendly and has a tub (recommended by my Dr. for back pain). I would like 2 bedrooms so family or friends could visit. Other than that I'm really not very fussy  - although I truly would like a place that has a pool available! I  don't know if this falls within your  area of expertise , if not , please feel free to pass this along if you know anyone in the above area that does handle rentals of this type.   

                                                       Thank you,   Dorothy M. Bergfels
