"Must park in visitor spot on other side of parking lot. Husband's car towed at 2 a.m. He talked w/ tow-truck driver & went upstairs to get key to vehicle. Before he came back downstairs (17 steps), the driver had taken the car. It cost us $250 and about and hour to get our car back. This was the first day of our vacation. Apt. was clean & neat. Insufficient lighting in LR & both BR's. Faucet broken in M. Bath. Still worked but top part missing & difficult to use. Plumber fixed kitchen faucet by mistake (didn't realize that faucet needed repair). LR sofa's too soft. Beds nice. Shower curtain in M. bath mildewed. Informed owner. Not replaced while we were there. Lake in back of apt nice. Sidewalk around lake."

"Great Location! Just a short walk to historic downtown, great restaurants and the Bradenton Riverwalk. very clean comfortable accommodations. Robert the owner is very involved in the community and is a great source of information for places to go and things to do. The owners are very responsive to any special requirements. Just a short drive to the gulf beaches. We have rented this unit for two consecutive winters and have found it to be a great get away from the cold Maine winters. Conveniently located to everything."

"This home is a great bang for the buck in the sarasota area. Less than 10 miles to the Bradenton beaches and less than 20 to Siesta Key (AMAZING SAND) and Sarasota beaches. Flea market is very close as well. The property is awesome and has no shortage of room. There is an abundance of wildlife and you're right on the slow moving river. We had 12 people stay comfortably. The staff was great to work with and provided excellent prompt service to a small maintenance item We encountered. Master edition is excellent especially the bathroom. Kitchen is a little small and could use a little updating but is fully functional. solid 4 star endorsement."

"Theres no need to travel outside the USA for beautiful blue water, serenity, and a tropical oasis. My family of six adults and 3 grand dogs arrived on vacation ready to relax. Casa Encantada is the medicine for stress! It's everything you see on Capt Julie's description and so much more! The smallest details await in this estate! Renting the pontoon in this package for the week made traveling out to all the destinations suggested by the owner even more memorable. Manatee, dolphins, sunsets to die for, and sea shells galore. This was absolutely our most favorite family vacation! Oh, and the dogs were spoiled rotten! Thanks Capt for all your suggestions. Your Casa is fabulous!"
