Private Homes villa description
7800 sq ft living area, sleeps 8 in 4 bedrooms, lift to all floors
Riverview Boulevard is a unique executive home available for exclusive hire. The home is situated at the mouth of the Manatee River just 45 minutes from Tampa International Airport and 30 minutes from Sarasota International Airport.
Just the drive alone along Riverview Boulevard is an experience to enjoy lined with outstanding beautiful homes, none of which are the same all looking out onto the wide Manatee River. When you reach the entrance to the property you will be encapsulated by the pure beauty of this wonderful home, you are greeted by the large wrought iron electric gates leading on to the travertine tiled sweeping driveway lined with beautiful trees and manicured landscaped gardens. Set in 2 acres it will truly take your breath away. As you pull under the porte cochre you will feel like a film star!!
The home took over 1 year to decorate inside alone; the Mediterranean techniques deployed are magnificent. The soft furnishings and accents are luxurious in every room. On entering this home you will not know where to look first as the level of detail is beyond comprehension.
The kitchen has been fully equipped with Viking appliances; you will find a double fridge freezer, double dish washers, top of the range cooking appliances with warming ovens, ice makers and even a fire in the corner. If cooking really isn’t your thing somehow you can’t help but feel truly inspired in this amazing kitchen. The vision through the massive aquarium glass is a view to behold and creates the most amazing back drop whilst you entertain your guests around the granite breakfast bar and island containing a wave that filled with ice holds your champagne and or shrimps for that special pre diner aperitif before taking your seats in either the formal dining room under an exquisite full chandelier or outside on the solid one piece granite dining table.
After diner you can choose to retire to the formal lounge or you may choose the outside bar area or you may fancy having a game of table tennis or pool whilst enjoying a night cap at the fully equipped bar in the games room with a choice of 4 TV’s playing a selection of games.
After spending a day out shopping/ boating/diving/ beaching you may want to just arrive home and relax, this is where the movie room plays its part, every film lovers dream, imagine reclining back in your very own 8 seater cinema watching your favorite movie. You just have to see this room to believe it
The home was designed for enjoyment both inside and out, the outside has so many different seating and entertaining areas all with stunning views across the Manatee River and Emmerson Point, you will never tire of this view. There is so much activity to watch as you sit back and take it all in .Dolphins swim regularly in the River and sometimes even underneath the dock. The dock is over 400 feet long so you can walk out and see even more wildlife close up, manatee wallowing in the water coming up for air, herons, egrets, spoonbill rosettes ,pelicans, seagulls and ospreys. Most Thursday evenings there is a sail boat regatta with various boats busying up and down the river heading out to the Gulf just minutes away.
Enjoy all this wildlife activity while using the outside bar and grill and at the same time watching your family and friends relaxing and unwinding in front of your eyes in the infinity pool and the large Jacuzzi. You can fish just off the dock for snook, redfish, trout and flounder with out having ti get on a boat
If you can drag your self away from this beautiful home there is so much you can do, Anna Marie Island is just a 20 minute drive away where the sand is like walking on talcum powder with a superb restaurant right on the beach. Quite often at the week end you can witness a small wedding gathering on the beach.
Rent a boat and pop over to Egmont Key, Fort Desota, Sarasota, St Petersburg and enjoy some fishing or go and visit one of the many waterside restaurants in Bradenton along the River Manatee.

A dream week in a dream house
A dream week in a dream house
Wow, what an amazing beautiful house with beautiful views. Just a few things you may want to know before renting this home. The Master Suite bedroom shown on the virtual tour on gulfvillarentals.com is closed off. VRBO & Home Away list 2 Kings but there is only one in the guest Master Suite which is very comfortable. We had 4 adults and 2 kids and the only other beds for the other 2 adults were a queen boat bed or twin beds or bunk beds. The TV and fireplace outside were currently not working and would have been a nice feature for " Daytona 500 Sunday ". We also found the Cinema Room player would overheat and shut down in the middle of a movie after 40 min. We were told to take a 10 min break and return but we tried 3 times with no luck and decided to give up and just not use it. We wound still highly recommend this beautiful home. It has beautiful views, beautiful tile work, lots of space inside and out. The furniture outside around the heated pool is abundant and very comfortable. The view from inside the house is also amazing, however the windows were in need of a cleaning. Ashley, from Gulf Villa Rentals, was great to work with and very helpful and concerned about our needs. You will have to search long to find a nicer house in this price range, as the pictures clearly show. From the moment we arrived we were content to spend our days poolside enjoying the views and luxury this wonderful estate home has to offer .The outdoor grill and bar area were first class, just one of many favorite gathering areas, take your pick. Shopping (Publix & Kmart) were also just minutes away.

Owner response: I would like to thank our very valued guests for their constructive critique of our home, these comments are very useful in deed to allow us to continue to raise the standards to exceed expectations . If I could take the comments in turn – I believe some of the confusion has been created by the listing on VRBO against the listing our agent has on their web site. The VRBO page states one King and One Queen but the agents web site showed 2 Kings and had the master suite on the virtual tour, this has now been rectified. To be absolutely clear the home has 1x King,1x Queen and 2 x twin rooms. The Queen bed is in a themed boat landscape overlooking the River Manatee, we have since this review raised the mattress to allow easier access. The bunk bed room has also been changed to a twin. The fire place outside is now working, we had been waiting for a certification to be issued before we were allowed to switch this on. The outside TV, really great idea but to be honest nothing but trouble in all that salt air and sea water, we will remove the outside TV, but please be sure there are no shortage of TV's in the house. The cinema issue, has been rectified and is now fully functioning. The windows, no excuses for not having clean windows, this has been resolved by increasing the frequency of window cleaning. We thank our guests very much for your valued custom and really do appreciate your balanced comments to ensure we offer a first class service.

What can one say except WOW! This home provided everything that was needed to get away, relax and refresh. Even though I felt that I never needed to leave the grounds to do anything, everything was close: The beach, restaurants and shopping was right there. The home is exactly as the pictures show, a masterpiece. My family didn't feel as if it was 'too dressy' but my wife and I felt like we were staying in luxury. The best of both worlds! I recommend this place 100% and will stay there again.
