Why Michael Santus chose Palmetto

Michael, born and raised in Philadelphia, grew up at the beaches of New Jersey and Florida (having a lot of family in the South). Andrew, born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area, has started to love Florida more and more with each of our trips.

We decided that we wanted our own slice of paradise and the Gulf Coast of Florida can't be beat. The development that our property is in is quiet, clean and truly a beautiful spot. We're close enough to the beach to be there in a few minutes and far away that we never have to deal with all the crazy tourist traffic that comes with something right at the beach.

We fell in love with this property due to its location on the bay which affords you privacy and seclusion from the hustle and bustle of life. Its location on a gated golf course is idea for relaxation and meditation.

Coastal atmosphere in a Golf Community

  • 5 of 5

We have rented this condo for 2 seasons of 6-months each -- its really does feel like "our" home. The decor has a casual nautical theme, with high quality furniture. The mattresses, linens and towels are all brand new and top quality. The kitchen is definitely the best equipped kitchen we have ever had in 15 winters in Florida. Terra Ceia is a golfing community with an excellent dining room in the club house -- the food is awesome. This is a very quiet condo, no noise from anything, but if your looking for excitement its just 5 minutes to Bradenton which is a very happening city. This location is also minutes to the best beaches in Florida, superb golf courses, drag-strip and oval race tracks and of course the usual tourist attractions. To the next tenants we say "Enjoy the scenery" -- its a great location. Micheal is very helpful if needed and is a pleasure to deal with. Thank You.

Wonderful, cozy and relaxing enclave

  • 5 of 5

The condo was very clean, inviting and beautifully appointed. They are obviously into cooking because the kitchen was stocked with everything we needed; including an awesome margarita maker machine.

Anyone who stays here will enjoy the wonderful breezy view of beautiful Terra Ceia Bay as well as the mangrove forrest. Be sure to start or end your day with a stroll along the boardwalks thru the mangroves and out to the end of the fishing pier....the view and sunsets are amazing.

Since we are golfers, being located within a gated golfing (and tennis) community was a super big plus for us. The club house is equipped and the people are really nice and accommodating.
