Private Homes villa description
Welcome to our New, Beautiful, Immaculate and Luxuriously equipped 3/4 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom Villa home. Check out our own website link in the Rate Details section below.
Inside and out you will love this home. With 2150sq of quietly air-conditioned living, each room has a spacious and airy feel. There are 3 bedrooms with King, Queen and 2 extra-long single beds. The Den can be a study, a room to relax and watch TV or a 4th Bedroom with its Queen sized sofa bed. With new and contemporary furniture, each room is equipped to provide the facilities, convenience and comfort that we know you will love. The Family Room is equipped with a 55” High Definition TV and a Digital Video Recorder, which can be used to watch and record programs, not just in this room but also in the Master Bedroom and Den.
You can entertain formally around the large dining room table, or for smaller meals enjoy the view over the lake at the rear of the property, from the Breakfast Room. This is also ideal for reading, painting, playing games or just enjoying the view of the wildlife.
The large kitchen is well equipped with an easy clean range and oven, microwave, refrigerator and freezer with ice cube and chilled water dispenser. There is plenty of room to prepare and serve meals and enjoy the Radio/CD/iPod player while doing so.
Nature lovers will be drawn to the shaded lanai and south-facing caged patio area. Tastefully landscaped and equipped with chairs and an electric outdoor grill, this is a perfect spot to enjoy an early morning cup of coffee, watch birds, ducks, turtles, otters and other interesting wildlife through the provided binoculars.
The Master Bedroom has a King Size, memory foam bed, ideal for a superb night’s sleep. A large En-Suite bathroom has a walk-in roman shower, his and hers sinks and WC. There is ample storage and a walk-in closet.
The Second Bedroom has a Queen Size bed, storage and a closet.
The Third Bedroom has two single beds, which are extra long, storage and a closet.
The 2nd and 3rd Bedrooms are next to the family bathroom with bath and shower.
The owners selected the Forest Creek gated community for its carefully landscaped and managed environment. A walk along the mile long Nature Trail will make this obvious. The 18-acre lake with its Bird Rookery Island is the focal point but its other lakes, rivers, bridges, trees, flowers and animals all combine to give an amazing sense of manmade luxury while supporting nature’s habitats.
The large community Resort-Style Pool and Spa is an excellent spot to swim, socialise, sunbathe, or relax in the shade under the Pool Cabanas with ceiling fans. There is also a Hot Tub and Barbeque Grill outside as part of the External Kitchen, while inside the community centre there is space to socialise, a Media and Game Room with flat screen TV and regulation size Pool Table, plus an Internal Kitchen. Need more exercise? – use the Nautilus-equipped 24hr Fitness Centre.

Home in paradise
Home in paradise
This is a gem. Starting with the home it is nicely furnished with lots of linens and a fully stocked kitchen. Forest creek is a lovely development with lots of space, walking trails and an abundance of bird life. We saw over 100 white Pelicans in the large lake at the entrance. The property is about ten minutes east of I75 away from the traffic jams you get west of the highway. Everything you want is within20-30 minutes.Publix grocery 5 minutes away Here are a few of the activities and sites we enjoyed. ..Ellentom Outlet Mall and skating rink (Some of the USA Olympic skaters train here) .Pittsburg Pirates train in Bradenton .Anna Maria Island and Longboat Key are near by but the traffic can be heavy going through Bradenton. Suggest you go across the bridge to St. Petes and go to Fort Desota park. It is a nature preserve on the gulf. No buildings, walking/biking trails, a marvelous beach and restroom facilities. Can rent bikes. kyaks fishing pier etc. Usually see dolphins close to shore, It is our most favourite beach in Florida Never crowded even on weekends. .Bradenton has lots of live theatre and music of all tastes. Van Wezel theatre in Sarasota has world class musical performers all season .Red Barn flea market close buy .Higher quality products then in most flea markets .many golf course in the area. Three within 10 minutes.Reasonable prices in the afternoon . Tampa Bay Downs horse racing one hour north in Oldsmar. Greyhound racing closer in Sarasota. . Just across the Skyway bridge is a small town Gulfport. It is a 1950's caught in time gem.Cobble stone streets lined with live oak trees Tuesday morning market and crafts. First Friday and third sat. evenings is Art Walk with the main street lit up with music and crafts again. Dancing at the old casino almost every day and big band dance every Sun. night.Probably my most popular place in Forida. All of this is made possible by the great location of the home in Forest Creek. If you just want to rest up the pool is great and never busy.You will wake every day to White Herons and ducks in the pond behind and the Sand Hill Cranes will visit as well. I could go on but you get the message. Truly a wonderful spot

Owner response: John Thank you for your comments about our home, community and area. It has been a pleasure helping you achieve your extended stay in this great part of the world. Your explorations and participation in social events is great to hear about. Thank you for sharing some of your highlights. My wife and I haven't yet visited a couple of places mentioned, but will on our next visit, as I expect other future guests will also. I hope we are able to welcome you back sometime in the future.
A wonderful holiday in a perfect villa
A wonderful holiday in a perfect villa
We (Family 1 boy, 11 years from Germany) spent our spring holiday in this wonderful villa. The villa is in a new and very clean condition It is perfectly equipped. We missed nothing, our expectations were exceeded. We enjoyed the large pool and the gym. The whole community is very clean and calm and has a nice nighbourhood. It`s central located in Parrish close to Tampa, St. Petersburg, Bradenton and a lot of beaches. There are supermarkets, a huge Factory Outlet, a lot of restaurant, banks, churches and shops in a few minutes driving. We spent some beach days on Anna Maria Island, where you`ll find one of the nicest beaches in Florida. We missed nothing. This villa is ideal for a longer stay. When we have retired once a day we will stay the complete winter in this villa. The owners are very friendly and reliable. Actually we are too young to retire and to stay in this villa for months but we booked directly from this villa our next holiday in this villa in October 2012, unfortunately only for two weeks.

Owner response: Sven, thank you for your review. We are so fortunate to have had great guests staying in our new house, and who have provided such positive and consistent feedback. We get a lot of pleasure from knowing you enjoy all of what we do when we visit this wonderful part of Florida. We look forward to welcoming you back to our house when you visit again later this year.
Parrish FL, lovely home
Parrish FL, lovely home
We had the privilege of staying two months in this lovely new home in Forest Creek, a gated community, off Highway 301, between Ellenton and Parrish Florida. The community is beautifully designed with areas for walking, biking, a community pool/hot tub and club house for fitness, pool table and area for cooking for larger groups, and best of all, welcoming, friendly people all around. The home is nicely decorated, with an open, uncluttered feel. The three bedrooms are pretty and welcoming with adequate linens and towels. There were even beach towels and beach chairs available. The washer and dryer were wonderful, as were the all new kitchen appliances, each very easy to use. The lanai porch across the back of the home overlooked a small pond where we could watch a variety of birds, turtles, and a pair of sand hill cranes that created a nest. Binoculars are provided to watch all creatures more closely. We had the delight of seeing white pelicans drop into the pond on three occasions. Mark and Anne have provided a wonderful activity book with places to go, activities to do, and excellent places to eat. There is a great outlet mall just down the road in Ellenton. Three flat screen TVs are in the living room, office, and master bedroom. The office is further furnished with a computer network and a new printer. The master bath has a Roman shower, two basins and a separate room with commode. We found this location just right…the local traffic not too bad…and nicely located to get to the airport, events north in Tampa or head south to Bradenton, Sarasota, Naples and events in those areas. The traffic is much heavier in those areas! We enjoyed seeing the circus, two ballgames, plays at the Asolo Theater, The Ringling Museum, mansion and art collection, Marie Selby gardens, Myaka park airboat ride, Bang Bang Shrimp Wednesday night special at an area restaurant, and much, much more. Our guests were impressed with the comfort and beauty this home provides.

Owner response: Jim, thanks for your great review. We set this house up as a home for ourselves and are so glad that you as guests, and your visiting family members, have felt at home there also. Convenience, comfort and cleanliness are so important to us so that our guests will want to come back. We chose the location overlooking the pond for the beautiful view of nature that it provides and from our emails and calls I know that you have found this to be a strong point also. This is an embedded aspect of this new community, cultivated from a natural environment. I am pleased that you agree the location works well. We also find fast access to all the points of interest is much better than being stuck in traffic getting in and out of a more polulated central area. Getting to the local shops and Ellenton Mall is a breeze.

Year Purchased: 2011
About the owner: As frequent Florida visitors, Mark & Anne love the houses we have stayed in, weather, wildlife, beaches, food, shopping and all the rest. We are part retired and seek to spend part of each year here in our own home, which we selected for its beautiful community, location, house design and serene rear view of the lake and its wildlife.
Why the Owner Chose Private Homes:
We chose a location close to the I75 for easy access to all points. The friendly community is a stand-out one for us which we love, so it was a comfortable choice to buy here in 2011 and move into a beautiful new, energy efficient home. We feel immediately at home with great neighbours.
The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
Mark loves to make fresh brewed coffee and sit on the Lanai as the sun comes up, while watching the Heron, White Egrets and other birds on the lake. Publix is our favourite supermarket and close by. Ellenton Premium Outlets Mall is a place all our visitors will be going to for great buys when not at the beaches.
