"What a fabulous retreat from the cold and snow we would have been experiencing had we stayed up north! Instead of shoveling snow, we spent almost every evening watching the sun set while enjoying the nice hot spa. (It was a little cool for me to use the heated pool, although if we'd had kids with us, I'm sure they would have loved it!) This is a home that we could live in year round - the nicest vacation rental that we've come across, so far. Although we didn't need all the space (there are four bedrooms and three bathrooms), we very much enjoyed the large TV, cushy sofas, and good-sized master bedroom with attached bathroom. There were plenty of towels, including beach towels, and a nice washer and dryer. The house and the neighborhood seemed very pet friendly. There were folks out in the neighborhood walking their dogs, riding their bikes, and taking their boat out in the canal. There were a couple "resident" pelicans that we watched fishing in the canal most days. It didn't take us long to find several good restaurants in Palmetto (Riverhouse Reef and Grill for a special meal; Kostas or Popi's for breakfast or casual family dining) and Bradenton and beyond - plenty of places to sit outside and enjoy a nice meal. There's a good-sized outlet mall a few miles away, and plenty of "Florida" shopping in neighboring cities. We drove over to the gulf beaches a couple times and visited several Farmer's Markets (we liked Sarasota's) and Flea Markets (Red Barn in Bradenton). We loved visiting the Ringling Museums (especially the Circus Museums). We even spent a day at Busch Gardens! Lots of fun things to do in the area; you do need a car to take in all the possibilities."

"We loved the condo and location. River Strand Golf course was in excellent condition and very challenging with four sets of tee blocks for beginners up to a scratch players. The greens were wickedly fast but held very well on high approach shots. The wildlife on the course was beautiful and plentiful. The pool at club was fabulous, and the small satellite pool was very nice to go to after a hot round of golf for a quick dip. Condo was well decorated and furnished with all the necessary amenities. Appliances, TV etc were great. Beautiful view out the window of Estuary 7th hole. We loved having dinner in the dining nook. It was almost like being outside with all the big windows. Of course, the Gulf beaches are great. BD"

"This was a wonderful property for multiple families as we had ample space to enjoy each other's company. The property was very clean when we arrived and the pool was already heated. They had a lot of good quality towels and bed linen. Some of the pots and pans were scuffed badly so it might be helpful to replace. The property manager was very professional and helpful, although their office was a little far from the house so allow extra time for checking in/out. The owners are very responsive and helpful. Thank you for a wonderful stay!"

A beautiful, clean, well decorated home with all of the amenities.
"My husband & I enjoyed our stay at this wonderful home. There was everything that we needed, then some. The large, heated pool and lanai was very relaxing and great therapy, especially at the end of the day. The home is very well decorated, very, very clean, nicely furnished and well located for shopping, site-seeing. We felt totally at home. The owner was great to deal with and made the rental process very easy. He spoke to us just prior to our arrival, called us shortly after check-in to ensure that we had everything that we needed and spoke to us again just prior to check-out. We will certainly come back to this beautiful home again.
Thanks for the memories, Susan"
