Thank you for a great two weeks at your Villa. Such a good location for the beeches, shopping, and within easy reach of the theme parks. The Villa was so well equipped, and has a lovely view over the lake which we found peaceful and relaxing. We made good use of the bikes, and the tennis courts on Heritage Harbour. Wifi come in very handy keeping our Son amused whilst we went on frequent shopping trips to Ellinton!.. which was only 15 minutes away. Doug & Claire Lockwood – England.
Owner response: Doug,
It has been a pleasure dealing with you, both Gaynor and I are thrilled you enjoyed our home, Bradenton is such a beautiful area and the beaches around Anna Maria Island are our favorite haunts. Kindest regards and best wishes Colin & Gaynor

The villa is actually nicer than the photos; extremely spacious, clean, well-decorated, and equipped with absolutely everything one would need. It is located in a safe, upscale gated community.
I found the Bradenton location to be very convenient and centrally located to many areas; Sarasota, Ellenton, Anna Maria Island, and St. Petersburg/Tampa, all of which I enjoyed exploring while there.
There are so many good restaurants, shopping centers, museums, concerts, and other things to do in the immediate area and in each of the surrounding towns (not to mention the beaches) and each town has its own unique character. This part of the west coast is my favorite area in Florida for a vacation.
