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.

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

This is our second year of renting this property. Just like the first time, we truly enjoyed the

charm of the house and its convenient location to restaurants and stores. We are looking forward to returning in 2018.

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.

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.

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
