Superb property and estate!
Superb property and estate!
The descriptions are 100% correct but the pictures do not do the estate or house justice. We would recommend this house to anyone, young and old. We were more than happy with our choice. We were greeted each morning by friendly neighbours, which made us feel very relaxed. The estate is quiet which is exactly what you want after a day on Siesta Keys beaches which are some of the finest in the world. The patio area was great for eating breakfast and planning the days events. I would strongly recommend renting a boat and exploring the keys. We rented from CB's just over the main bridge into Siesta Key. We were lucky enough to see a wild dolphin and a group of Manatees. Our favourite restaurant was Phillippi Creek Village it has fantastic seafood and fish as well as your normal chicken dishes, it's a must and not a big chain. Eddie and Wendy Carter are a pleasure to deal with. We also rang the emergency contact (because we hadn't used the lock system before on the door) whose name I cannot remember and she was brilliant to. Sarasota and Siesta Keys are amazing and this house is a perfect base for you visit. Thanks Paul, Michelle and Cameron.

Comfortable villa in an excellent location
Comfortable villa in an excellent location
This villa is perfect for a family holiday to the gulf coast. It contained all of the equipment needed for a rental of a few weeks. Lounge/dining area was newly furnished, with comfy sofas, a large flat screen TV and wifi Internet connection. Kitchen area was well stocked and beds were comfortable (didn't use the convertibles). The villa also contained tennis equipment, beach towels, lilos and buckets & spades, so no need to fill your suitcases with any of these items. We visited for 10 days in late October, during the UK schools' mid-term break and the Timberwoods estate was quiet, as this is the end of low season The pool area had plenty of new chairs and sun loungers and the pool is a good size for both swimming and mucking around. We used one of the tennis courts and this was well maintained, but the temperature was too hot for tennis. The biggest advantage of this villa, over others that we have rented in the Sarasota area is the location: Crescent Beach on Siesta Key (the best beach on the gulf coast) is 10-15 minutes drive The main shopping mall in Sarasota is 5 minutes walk, so when the boys are playing golf, the girls can shop!! Downtown Sarasota and St Armands Circle is 20-30 minutes drive Junction 205 of the i75 is 10 minutes drive Ellenton outlet mall is 30 minutes drive All of the usual restaurant chains were within 10-15 minutes drive of the villa (Outback, Longhorn, Chilis, Carrabas, Bonefish Grille etc) and there were also some good locally owned restaurants. We'd recommend Turtles on Siesta Key. You could dine at the waterside inside or out. Food was good and at $100 for 4, including drinks and a bottle of wine, prices were reasonable. The location also gave easy access to dozens of excellent golf courses within a 30 minute drive. We played some of the best in the area; University Park, The Venetian, Waterleaf, River Strand, The River Club, Oak Ford, Sarasota National and Serenoa and by booking a couple of days beforehand, on the Internet, only once did we pay over $25 per person per afternoon round, including cart (University Park was $32pp). Oak Ford was $12 for me and my son played for free, so 18 holes of golf for two was cheaper than the my golf glove. I know you won't get these silly deals in high season, but the quality of the courses in the area is second to none in Florida. The best endorsement we can provide for this villa is that we have already booked it for the same time next year

Perfect Family base
Hello Eddie, well were back home and Sarasota seems like a million miles away, just wanted to say thankyou for letting us stay in your lovely home, it was very comfortable, and had everything we could have wanted, the pool, hot tub and surrounding area was great. lovely and clean at all times. I think we will be back in the future, Sarasota was just what we needed after Orlando and it is a very beautiful part of the world. Thanks again we had a fab time, and would recommend the villa to others. Carole, Ray and Bethany " - Ray T., pemberton, wi, 08/08/2010

My husband and I along with our two young sons vacationed here in early August. It was absolutely wonderful! The villa is very well kept, spacious and has all the comforts of home. The location is perfect, it has easy access to the beach, shopping and groceries. And the owners are very friendly and helpful, a pleasure to work with. If you are looking in this area I definitely recommend you stay here.

"Dear Eddie & Wendy This was our 20th Anniversary celebration and our daughter's 16th birthday - we were so looking forward to coming! We have so enjoyed our stay in your condo and the area. Your accomodations were beyond our expectations. The kids, my husband and I all had a fantastic time. We are getting one last round of tennis, will hit the pool and on the way out to Tampa to catch our flight home, hope to dip ourselves in the wonderful Gulf waters one more time. We would most definitely come again and recommend it to others. Thanks again, Karin and family " - Karin W., Albuquerque, NM, 07/24/2010

Relaxing for the whole family!
Relaxing for the whole family!
We had a wonderful time at this property in Sarasota. We (husband, wife, 4 children (11 - 17) absolutely loved the location!! It is walking distance to the mall, and close to everything else. The kids noticed how quiet the resort is, especially when you realize how close to the mall you are. The pool is gorgeous and a refreshing change from the salt-water which is only a 10 minute drive. We enjoyed tennis, pool, and basketball. We look forward to another visit!!

Owner response: There is enough here to keep the busiest family happy as the location is surrounded by activities. At the same time our community itself is tranquil and set in a tropical landscaped setting. We have returning single guests, couples, and famililies, who have all discovered the jewel in the Gulf Coasts crown! Our properties are great value and you will love the spacious and updated decor throughout.
Firstly, when I was making arrangements to stay in one of Mr. Carter's properties, I found it very easy to deal with him despite the distance between Canada and England. When we arrived at the condo, I had no problem getting access to the property by following his directions. Once inside, we found everything clean and in good order. Also, all lthe appliances worked properly upon our arrival. Our stay there was very enjoyable and we would definitely consider staying there again at some future time. The whole complex is well maintained and very orderly.

Owner response: We have worked hard to get our villas up to the standard that WE would expect to find when we are on vacation. Our community is perfect to welcome guests from all over the world who want to discover Florida and its Gulf Coast area. Our best result is in the number of guests who come back to stay in our villas year after year! You have a much better holiday when you can feel at home and have all the comforts not found in a hotel room.

Hi Eddie and Wendy! This is the first chance I've had to sit and e- mail you since we came back. We had an absolutely amazing time at Siesta Key. The villa was really lovely and very central for the beach, shopping, eating out and travelling around. It was very peaceful, clean and all the instructions were clear and easy to manage. The pool was brilliant, much to the delight of the kids, and being so close to all other amenities also gave us lots to be getting on with. The boys went to see Tampa Bay Rays at the Tropicana Stadium and we went to a local game too. We visited lots of beautiful beaches, Sieasta Key was my favourite!! We went to the cinema, ate at Boston's and Ruby Tuesdays. The weather was amazing too, it was sunny every day! We travelled up to Madeira Beach after we left the villa for a week, it was great too!We also took in Busch gardens,Universal,Sea World and Aquatica...Fabulous!! We will recommend your villa to others, Timberwoods is a lovely resort. Thankyou for all your assistance in making our family holiday this year in Florida a BLAST!!!! We will go back there again one day. Thanks again!! Angela, Andy, Jonathan and Jessica Date: 2008/06/03 Tue PM 07:20:34 BST - Angela 07/10/2008
