About Judy Ryan

Owners, Judy Ryan and Michael Higgins just love life in River Strand. Judy is a walker and swimmer (a bit of a fitness nut) and Michael is the golfer in the family. We live in Maine for most of the year and love to escape from the winter. We also like to share our home with others and have enjoyed meeting new people through our rentals.

Judy Ryan purchased this House in 2017

Why Judy Ryan chose Bradenton

This property is just perfect for a couple or small family. The weather here is great and the River Enclave Court neighborhood is friendly and inclusive. For a complete description of what River Strand has to offer, see the write up in the property description. We are also holding our rental and fees at 2017 levels for 2018, so on top of everything else, this property is a deal.

                                                                  This is our fifth year renting in River Strand (our 4th property), and it is by far the best. It feels like home rather than a typical 'rental.' The house is very well equipped and furniture comfortable. The little extras of having day one necessities is appreciated (dish soap, laundry detergent, etc.).

                                                                  The pool, hot tub and comfortable lanai are a wonderful west-facing afternoon retreat (the umbrella is a must for the sun) after a day on the golf course or biking in the area. The owners were responsive to a couple of very minor issues and are extremely pleasant and easy to deal with. We will be back!!!!

                                                                  Owner's Response:

                                                                  So glad you enjoyed your time at our property. Thanks for the review!

                                                                  More than a vacation home....

                                                                  Dragana S.

                                                                  We stayed in the house from June 16th to August 1st 2017, enough time to surely confirm that this house has everything you need for a nice living (not just for vacation).

                                                                  First of all, the house is located in a beautiful golf resort, equipped with swimming pools, a walking path, a bike trail, a children's playground and a sports field. A very peaceful and safe community. A few minutes away from the I-75, gas station and Publix. For coffee lovers, Starbucks is just 7 minutes away.

                                                                  The house was exactly as described, with modern furniture, the kitchen is fully equipped, has a barbecue and the pool is heated. The bedrooms and bathrooms are great size, very clean and the finishes in the home were lovely.

                                                                  What makes a special stay in the house is that you will find the little things needed for the first days of stay (toilet paper, paper towels, liquid detergent, liquid soap, sanitized wipes, coffee, bottled water). If you go to the beach, in the garage you can find chairs and umbrellas, if you want to bring food, you will find plastic boxes in the kitchen. To maintain hygiene in home, you will find all the necessary tools and supplies. Also, I would like to emphasize that this is not one of those houses that have a warning on every corner, which makes the stay much more relaxed and enjoyable.

                                                                  Judith was an EXCELLENT host, and very responsive with any questions we had.

                                                                  During the rental period, this house had the most reasonable price for a long stay and it has filled our expectations and more.

                                                                  Look forward to staying here again!

                                                                  Owner's Response:
