There is a large closet in Bedroom and Bathroom with plenty of space for your suitcases and belongings. Other bedrooms have full size beds with closets and close access to the hall bathroom.

Bathrooms both have large showers.

Washer and dryer is provided.

Walk out from the kitchen door to a large screened in Lanai with Patio furniture enough for everyone to sit and take in the sunsets. Lovely place to eat your meals and a refrigerator is also on the lanai for your beverages or more space for your food. The ice maker in the refrigerator will help fill your coolers for your beach trips. If you want to grill out a charcoal grill is provided but you provide the charcoal.

There is plenty of parking under the carport tall enough for most toys. If you like to boat there are close boat launch areas and ample parking at the house when not in use.

Home has all of the amenities needed to be like home away from home.

If heading to the beach there are beach chairs and umbrellas in the outbuilding located at the home. There might even be a few buckets and sand tools.

So much to do in the area, If you like to golf you have many golf courses around the area. Your stay is in close proximity to lots of shopping including specialty high end in Sarasota to a huge Flea Market with everything from food to furniture. There is something for everyone.
Lots of tourist attractions for day trips and locally and plenty to do year round. Ringling Brothers Circus museum and 30 room home is close for a wonderful history of the circus. You are only about and hour to Busch Gardens in Tampa. IMG Academy is just a few blocks away. Love Baseball? Pittsburgh Pirates spring camp is held in Bradenton at MeKechnie Field and just blocks away.
If you love to eat out there is anything from the Pancake All You Can Eat offering at the beach to exquisite culinary restaurants everywhere meeting your pocketbook needs.
One of our favorite places to eat is Anna Marie Oyster Bar on Cortez. They have wonderful seafood specials each day for a very affordable price.
There are so many restaurants in the beach area. We will share a few names. But also I recommend going to www.tripadvisor.com for many other eating establishments.
Cortez Kitchen, sounds like a sandwich shop but they have some really good seafood platters and meals and also offer entertainment regularly. It is right on the water and right next door is the Swordfish Grill, great seafood and great entertainment there as well. Make it a point to check these places out. They are easily overlooked but once you find them you will go back again.
Another great place you would easily overlook is Sharky's Seagrill on the way to Bradenton Beach.

You are fifteen minutes from the Sarasota - Bradenton Airport and Interstate 75 or an hour to the Tampa Airport.

Whether you are a business or a leisure traveler, we at Nelson and Associates offer the home away from home with rental by the week or the month.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2003

                      About the owner: We have been going to Florida for 50 years and We both love to fish, boat and live on Little Blue River, a tributary of the Ohio River, back in Indiana. We also have a little fishing camp on Lake Cumberland in KY. We are not the typical snow birds. We love to go to the beach in the summer and don't mind the heat. So Florida in summer and fall is our favorite time thus making this great home available for the snow birds that want to avoid the harsh winters. We have four grown children three of which are married. Two of the married couples have children so our travels take us to see our children and grandchildren periodically since only one child lives in Indiana.

                      Why the Owner Chose Other Bradenton Properties:
                      This location was owned by our family since the 70's. There was an old Air Stream camper with a room built on that the folks stayed in when they came down for the winters until 2003. The place was so old nothing more could be fixed but the lot was beautifully set amongst 100 year old oak trees and palm trees and backed up to McCollum Lake. It was deeded over to us in 2003 and we had this modular built at that time. We haven't totally retired so don't spend extremely long stretches in the home yet but didn't want it to just sit and not be enjoyed so decided to list it on VRBO. Hope you can visit!
