Year Purchased: 2011
About the owner: We are snowbirds from Canada. Being brought up in the UK we find the cold winters in Canada too harsh so we look forward to visiting for an extended stay in the winter.
Why the Owner Chose Other Bradenton Properties: We purchased this property so we could enjoy the pleasant winters in Florida. We enjoy the beaches, restaurants and shopping and find the villa accessible to all Florida has to offer. This is particularly important now as we have grandkids who like the Disney World, Busch Gardens etc.
The Unique Benefits at this Villa: Because we live here for up to 6 months of the year our house is more like a home than a rental property, the kitchen is well equipped and the standard of the property is higher.
