"I can't tell you enough how much I enjoyed staying here. This house is in such a great location. It's close to the Interstate, so traveling to nearby sites (like Clearwater Beach and Myakka State Park) was a breeze! It's also about 15 miles from the beach. It was Spring Break when we stayed, so it took over 30 minutes to get to Holmes Beach. It was worth the wait! Holmes Beach is the best one around! I also loved how "homey" the house is. There was even a newly strung guitar in the living room and many excellent books for reading. The pool was wonderful and we enjoyed eating dinner outside every night. There are also friendly turtles and ducks near the pristine pond. The beds were very comfortable and there were many things, like items for the beach and extra bikes, which were left in the garage for renters' use. I just loved this house. Bradenton also has so much to offer- great restaurants, a neat museum with "Snooty" the manatee, artist communities, biking trails, kayaking, & fishing charters."

"My family and I had a wonderful week at Casa Encantada!! Captain Julie and Pam have managed to create an oasis that feels like your own private resort!! We loved the spacious house that was full of character and charm. The kitchen is fabulous...quite honestly outfitted better than my own at home!! Our family loved cooking wonderful meals, and enjoyed dining by candlelight on the screen porch!! The property is beautifully landscaped with wonderful views of the water!! Sunsets are to die for!!! The lagoon style pool and Tiki Bar/Hut make this wonderful property complete!! We hardly saw anything outside these walls, as we couldn't tear ourselves away. I don't know who loved it more, our dogs or us!! We all agreed that our time at Casa was a memory that won't be soon forgotten. Captain Julie and Pam are wonderful hosts, and we all hopefully look forward to seeing them again soon!! Thank you for sharing this wonderful place with us!!"

"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!"
