Guestbook comments from the owner

Great vacation home!!

Gratz Palatine, USA

Review Submitted: August 6, 2009 Date of Stay: June 2009

I just want to say how much we loved staying in your home for our summer vacation. The house was so beautiful! It was close enough to the beaches that we went to watch the sunsets every night. The house is very private, but close enough to many stores for your shopping needs. We were so surprised at how large the home was as well as the pool. The clubhouse pool was also a nice extra added benefit. Thank you for your kindness and easy renting process. We had a wonderful time!

Owner's Response: A review like this confirms our opinion that maintaining our home to a high standard is good for the client and good for us, the owners. We want people to come back again and again to stay in our home. It may not be the cheapest on the market but it represents excellent value.We use the villa ourselves throughout the year, thus being able to stay on top of all those small maintenance jobs. Thank you Grazia and family for your review!

Bradenton rental.

  • 5 of 5

The booking process was simple, the value good and the owner very accommodating. We asked to get in a few hours early and that was no problem. The house itself was very nice and well laid out. The bedrooms are situated to be very separate and private from one another. I would definitely rent this house again and would highly recommend it to anyone else looking to stay in Bradenton.

Lovely home

  • 4 of 5

Great location. Nice neighborhood for walking. Close to grocery, shopping, places to eat, Pirates spring training facility, Mixons orchard. Newly completed 44th Ave makes it easy to access to downtown and Cortez bridge on to the island.

Spacious, well-appointed home with two nice gathering areas. Good beds.

Three bathrooms is a plus.

Having a heated pool was very nice. Plenty of pool side chairs which was great for gathering outside .

Would recommend this home for your stay.

We had only a couple of problems. Floors in the villa were not clean. It took over a day for the pool to heat up enough to be used. Clothes washer or dryer ruined 4 new men's dress shirts w grease on all 4. Showed property mgr & he didn't offer any real resolution. We did enjoy the area very much and the villa overall was big enough to meet the needs of 3 families. Kitchen was well equipped as was the linen supply. We would definitely go back.

Owner's Response: The pool heating was requested whilst the guests were there. It always takes a day to heat up completely at this time of year. Cannot explain how any shirts were damaged. We have had three other parties staying since and have had no complaints about the washing machine

Great property

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 9 loved the house and the area. The house is beautiful and very spacious. There was plenty of room for everyone to move about and not feel like we were tripping on each other. Everything was clean and in good repair. The beds were comfortable and there were plenty of extra pillows and blankets for the kids to enjoy a slumber party in the living room. The whole neighborhood is beautiful and the neighbors were all nice. My only complaint is that there were only partial rolls of paper towels and toilet paper, so we had to go to the store right away, but for the cost, it was not a big deal. There are loads of stores within a few minute drive. The entire area is great. We very much enjoyed our stay.

Great house and location

  • 5 of 5

We were a party of 9 (one handicap grandpa included) and this was the perfect house. Lots of room to spread out, a nice neighborhood and less than 30 minutes to all of the great beaches and tourist spots.

I would recommend asking for the pool to be turned on before you go but I wouldn't change anything. The host is quick to respond to questions, if needed.

The floor was sticky and not really clean. Hope they're clean everything before people came to check-in.
