"Lovely home with so much to do you won't want to leave! This is a very comfortable place, with a great layout and access to the pool, hot tub, and game room area from the den and master bedroom. Beds are very comfortable, furnishings are comfortable, a desk and computer is provided. Really, everything you think you might need on vacation is available! And if you can't find something, both Chris and Carol are extremely helpful and efficient.
The pool is simply MARVELOUS! No freezing temps from owners too stingy to keep the heat on. It's perfect. The hot tub is large with great jets and plenty of heat as well. We love this place and will be back again."

"This was our first time using VRBO and we couldn't have been happier with Neil and his condo. The accomodations were very nice. No complaints whatsoever. When we come back down, we will definitely contact Neil."

"If you want to just kick back and relax, this is the place for you. Sit on the lanai and watch the Manatee in the bayou. Walk out on the patio and take a dip in the pool or relax in the spa. Beautiful, spacious, well maintained home with every amenity you could want. Great place for a couple, a large family or anything in between Located in a nice quiet neighborhood. DeSoto National Monument (a great place to walk) is a mile away. Also, check out the Robinson Nature Preserve with several miles of hiking trails and the Palma Sola Botanical Park. Both are a few miles away and are highly recommended for anyone who enjoys walking. Anna Maria Island is a quick 15 minute drive away. There you will find great beaches and fantastic restaurants. Bradenton area is one of the best kept secrets on the Gulf. Plenty to see and do, literally something for everyone. Great affordable seafood restaurants. Beautiful beaches with lots of public access. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone who asks. I'm already making plans to go back next year.
One caveat: Pool is not fenced so I so would not recommend to families with young children."

If you do not love this place........Check you have a pulse!!!
"One could wax lyrically forever about this home and it`s location within the Tara community.
There could be no better recommendation than to answer "YES IN A HEARTBEAT" to the question of would you like to come back here.
I would like to say we took advantage of the numerous cultural attractions the area has to offer, alas relaxation was the number one priority on this occasion, and here........that was easy. We did however take a couple of trips to St Armands Circle in Sarasota. A very upmarket area for shops and restaurants..........it`s Fabulous.
Being English, we quite like our pub culture. Again this proved to be a perfect location, with two (maybe more) pubs within a five minute walk.......Gecko & Bogeys, both friendly and welcoming.
Throw in a quality golf course into that mix, and Tara is a quality golf course. Then for us Utopia has been attained.
In conclusion the owners, Pauline and Stu could not have been more attentive, and were a pleasure to deal with."
