Property description

Decorated with light Floridian colors and a beachside theme, we know that once you stay here you won't want to stay anywhere else again!

The master bedroom features a beautiful white 4 poster bed, with luxurious linens and Sealyposture Pillow Top mattress. The guest room is also beautifully appointed! With its split bedroom layout, a walk in closet in each, and two bathrooms, all guests have both space and privacy.

The dining table extends to seat 6, and the living room has Smart TV, DVD and some books, DVDs and games to enjoy. Wifi is included!

Only a few steps away, start or end your day with a swim in the pretty heated pool. Located on the second floor of a delightful 2 storey development built in 2005.

The most beautiful beaches in Florida are only 10 minutes drive away - so hire a boat or simply go for a stroll to enjoy! The world renowned IMG Academy is on the doorstep with Bollettieri Tennis, Leadbetter Golf and a Wellness Spa available to be enjoyed. If golf is your thing, there are numerous courses close by! The condo is central to shops and theatres - and you can even walk to the movies or out for dinner!

We have put together a comprehensive visitor book to help you make the most of your stay!

We are located only 15 minutes drive from Sarasota/Bradenton Airport, and c55 minutes from Tampa airport and Busch Gardens. Orlando, Disney and other theme parks are about 2 hours drive away, but with so much to do on your doorstep you may decide to stay closer to home!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2009

About the owner: We live on the South Coast of England close to Poole Harbour (the second largest natural harbour in the world after Sydney, Australia). I own a Mortgage and Insurance business and my husband runs a Construction business. We love our home - but we love to travel to other beautiful places too!

Why the Owner Chose Bay Pointe at Cortez:
Between us we have travelled most of the world, but this little bit of Florida offers it all! We have been coming here for more than 20 years and just keep coming back! Some days we love to just chill out and go shell hunting on the beautiful beaches, and enjoy the dolphins, birds and manatees. Other times we like to play golf or tennis - and what a choice we have! When we feel like some culture we head for the historic Ringling Museum or Gamble Plantation etc. We enjoy the shows at Van Wezel, Asolo, Bradenton Players etc! We can eat fabulous dinners or laid back Floridian fair. And when a bit of shopping is on the list - there are plenty of places to satisfy!

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
It is just so easy and central to everything we need and love! If you decide you don't want to drive you can walk to the movies or to dine! And for the essentials Walmart is very close too! All the buildings in the Condominium are only 2 storeys, set in beautiful landscaped gardens with ducks and turtles on the lake. Once you stay here ... you will want to return!
