LIVIN’ IT UP ON
Bill and Rebecca Sanders’ Florida living room is under nothing but the moon and stars. The fireplace is by Island Girl Trading Company
and the furniture is by Carl’s.
These snowbirds put a new
twist on outdoor living

BPHOTOS BY ROBERT P. DUDLEY ill and Rebecca Sanders love the great outdoors. In
fact, they live there. “We’re vagabonds,” says Bill,
relaxing in the shade of the thatched tiki hut built
on their Outdoor Resorts home site in St. Lucie
West. “We don’t like to stay in one place too long.”
Home base is on the road with their high-end motor conversion
bus, but when they aren’t at a NASCAR race or traveling
across the country, the couple spends much of the fall
and winter months enjoying the mild weather on Florida’s
Home is also the thatched roof that provides shade and
protection for an incredible outdoor kitchen, bar and serving
area, just a part of the outdoor oasis that the retired
Iowa couple have created alongside their motor home.
Their home site at this motor coach-only, gated resort in
Port St. Lucie’s St. Lucie West, offers a luxurious version of
the outdoor life, and many of the neighboring home sites
are just as loaded.
