About The Owner

Our family enjoys the fun in the sun that the gulf side of the sunshine state provides. We have been visiting the Sarasota/Bradenton area for over 25 years and enjoy the abundance of activities and attractions the area offers.

The Owner purchased this condo in 2009

Why The Owner chose Riviera Dunes

After spending several years vacationing in the area we decided to purchase our condo in Riviera Dunes for its close proximity to beautiful beaches, amusement parks and several regional airports. The community offered all that we desired in a second home with our favorites being a 2 minute walk to the clubhouse pool from our building's entrance and a highly rated restaurant on premises.

What makes this condo unique

The property is secure with code gate access, security guards and is on the banks of the Manatee river.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We stayed at the condo in October and immensely enjoyed our stay, the unit has been very tastefully furnished, extremely clean and as it was recently purchased everything was almost new and in great working order. We have stayed at several different properties in different parts of Florida, Riviera Dunes is located in a very central area with easy access to several gulf beaches, Sarasota restaurants/shopping, Disney and several area airports. The balcony overlooks the expansive Manatee river with a view of the Bradenton skyline where we enjoyed several evenings with our favorite beverages. The clubhouse is a 2 minute walk from the building and has a beautiful outdoor pool with a compact workout area which my healthy husband frequently made use of. I would strongly recommend this property to anyone who is considering spending the coming winter months in the Florida area.

Beautiful and So Much More

  • 5 of 5

We were impressed with this place when we first arrived and met the owner.....who arrived promptly to meet us. Everything is clean, beautifully furnished, new, and stylishly decorated. It was just like we had hoped it would be.....and more. Gorgeous view!! We had many wonderful places to eat nearby.....but also used the well-furnished kitchen to entertain guests and relax at our home-away-from-home. The pool is very relaxing and the community is a gorgeous place to explore. Security is tight so we felt very safe and comfortable. We have already referred friends to this 5 star vacation spot.

Riviera Dunes Condo

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for two months during Feb and March, 2011. We were completely satisfied with this unit and the professionalism of the owner.

The listing and picture are accurate. What sets this unit apart from a lot of other rentals is the quality of the furniture. The living room and bedroom furniture is of substantial quality and is very comfortable. The same goes for searing on the balcony.

The unit is almost new, and needs nothing to improve it's condition or functionality.

Other things we liked. Pool and fitness center are just across the street. 2 hi def flatscreen tvs. Wifi is availabe and dependable. Views from the balcony -- various shore birds, ospreys, porpoises, pleasure and fishing boats, sunsets -- even saw a few people get baptized in the river -- bring your binoculars. Very efficient elevators. Spacious indoor parking space and ample outdoor parking for visitors. Nicely eqiuipped kitchen with quality dishes, silverware, pots and pans. Lots of shopping without going into Bradenton. The owners are very nice and are easy to communicate with.

This was the first rental we have ever had where all our surprises were pleasant ones. We are going to a single family residence next year (recently purchased by a family member). If we don't like it, we would definitely rent this unit again in the future.
