"Our party of 10 adults and 3 children fit comfortably in this lovely home.Plenty of space so there is no need to trip over each other. We chose not to rent a car and were able to easily hop public transportation at the end of the road and ride daily to Anna Maria Island and beaches/restaurants/stores galore. Publix is within walking distance/short cab ride.The pool at the house is large, tennis courts/pool table extra fun. The house is clean. Renting long distance I always worry about legitimacy and get worried about getting contracts in hand immediately, directions, etc. Be aware Gavin has a time frame that he operates within. But he comes through as promised. And we had FABULOUS weather. So much better than the cold winter in Maine."

"We have enjoyed everything this house has to offer. Beautifully decorated, spotless and well equipped. The home is bright and airy offering comfortable and spacious bedrooms, a large open kitchen and gorgeous pool/lanai area. The heated pool allowed us to swim even on cooler days. The lanai area was nice and private and outfitted with great furniture for both dining and lounging. This home was a wonderful combination of being part of the beautiful Tara community, we enjoyed long walks through the neighbourhood and being conveniently located to highways, a variety of golf courses, shops, and local beaches. The owner was very friendly and available to answer all our questions. This was our second year renting and have already secured our month for next year. We are really looking forward to returning!"

Nice home in lovely, safe neighborhood, accessible to many adventures
"This is the second time I've stayed at this lovely home and both times I found it to be very clean and tidy. The beds are comfortable, there is plenty of common space and the kitchen is well equipped. The home features a lovely pool in the backyard lanai that has been landscaped to provide a private retreat. The neighborhood is clean and tidy as well and located near shopping and dining as well as grocery stores and entertainment. Many lovely beaches are a short drive away as well as other entertainment venues. Although the owners live in the UK, the home is cared for by a gentleman that lives in the neighborhood."

"Our families really enjoyed this home. It was immaculate and was close to the beach and to many restaurants and shopping outlets. Communication was excellent at all times and Mark was fantastic to work with. This is our second year staying in Bradenton for baseball at Pirate City and Mark's home made this year a lot more convenient and fun. We saw Dolphins every day as well out our back window.
For our group of two families, the two master bedrooms really made a difference. We will definitely rent from Mark again when we return to Bradenton. There is no better situation!"
