Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a fabulous vacation, it is a beautiful home you own.

We felt very comfortable and relaxed immediately. Not only is your villa gorgeous, it is in a super area. It has everything in it that anyone would wish for and more. I would not hesitate to book it again.

I feel we were very fortunate to find your home, one I would whole heartedly recommend to anyone.

The only downside was that we had to leave it and come back home!!

Many thanks for allowing us to have our vacation in your home.

Gulf Coast Luxury Vacation Villa with Private Pool, close to beaches
average rating of 4.9 based on 23 reviews

Recommend highly.

  • 5 of 5

Staying at this villa was one of our best vacations. To start with, Sue, the owner, is very easy to communicate with and to get information relevant to the rental. The house and pool are very beautiful, very clean and very well maintained. The villa is stocked with many items that are not normally found in a rental unit. There are plenty of books to read, CD's, DVD's, games, towels, linens, glasses and dishes, detergents, beach chairs, bicycles, rafts, appliances, etc. The unit is close to all kinds of stores and restaurants and within a short distance to beaches. Anyone looking to rent a place should give this house serious consideration. My wife and I fell in love with this villa and will return next year.

Lovely clean Villa

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the huge villa. It was a last minute rental as the Villa we have stayed in for a number of years was sold. The villa was spotlessly clean and had everything you needed. We had a problem with the pump on the pool but it was fixed straight away.

home from home

The property is a spacious well equipped house truly a home away from home. It has four large bedrooms a well equipped kitchen. The area is quiet friendly and safe. The one drawback is the back of the property has a road going past which can be noisy during the day.

Fabulous holiday home great value

  • 5 of 5

Loved this extremely spacious holiday home. Stayed for 3 weeks with my daughter, sister and dad aged 84yrs. We loved everything about the house including the location and all the extras on sight. Ideal for family holiday and great for elderly less mobile people. Will definitely holiday here again. Hopefully soon and will certainly recommend to friends.

Great setting, fab space, lovely pool!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed for 3 weeks at Sue's house and it was great! The pool is lovely, the rooms are HUGE and there's everything you need for your stay. We ate out a lot at all the nearby restaurants, but the kitchen was well stocked enough for us to have friends over for dinner. Loads of towels in the house and a washer/dryer in the utility.

It's close to the beaches - straight down Cortez Road - and 10 mins from the I-75 which connects you to everywhere!

I loved the garage remote, which meant the car was out of the sun and you could drive right in.

With regards to cleanliness - it was spotless!

It was well-maintained and the local man called on our first morning to make sure we knew what to do.

Sue was on the other end of the phone for all my questions.

I will definitely go back! And I would recommend it to friends/family.

Thanks for having us!

Great villa wonderful for beaches

  • 5 of 5

This an excellent Villa. It is very spacious and well appointed with all that is needed for an excellent holiday. We stayed for three weeks in August and could not have been more pleased. The layout facilities was just as described. It was in excellent condition throughout. Berndt the manager fixed our only problem (one of the toilets did not flush)quickly and efficiently. Its position was such that we could walk to restaurants (Outback Chinese and Thai) and bars. We particularly liked The Steelers Bar Fanatics.It was also so close to the beaches. A word of warning it is also a smokers bar. I would recommend this villa to families and couples alike.

Bradenton Beach
Car: necessary

Bradenton is a lovely picturesque area on the Gulf Coast of Florida in between Sarasota and St.Petersburg. Just 45min drive from Tampa International Airport.

It's an ideal location to rest up and enjoy the breathtaking Gulf Coast beaches, but close enough to visit Orlando's theme parks. Wonderful white sand beaches run for miles with all the water activities you could wish for. Our house is 10 minutes drive from beautiful Bradenton Beach along the Cortez Road and only 15 minutes drive from Holmes Beach, Anna Maria Island and Longboat Key. We are also very close to the Shorewalk complex and world famous Nick Bollettieri IMG Sports Academy for those wishing to improve their tennis.

There are great restaurants, bargain shopping at nearby Ellenton Outlet Mall, many golf courses, a bowling alley, a cinema, health and beauty salon and gymnasium all close to our location.

Watch the sunrise over coffee; but be sure to have a cold drink and your feet in the sand when the sun sets!

Other Activities: Most Florida Theme Parks within 40mins to 2hrs away
