About The Owner

My wife and I are two semi retired executives with 2 daughters and 3 young grandchildren who love visiting are beautiful home in Florida. We have been coming to Florida for the past several years with the intention of increasing our time as our professional schedules permit.

The Owner purchased this bungalow in 2010

Why The Owner chose Bradenton

We chose to buy at Tara after having rented on several prior occasions. We also chose to accept the advice and recommendations from freinds who were well established at Tara and who had as well made recent purchases for their homes.

What makes this bungalow unique

Our home has arguably the best location on the golf course. It is a short walk to the amenities of the clubhouse and the practice range as well as next to the 9th green and 1st tee. We also enjoy the proximity of the ocean and the city of Sarasota with its many world renowned cultural activities.

Clean house with everything you need

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in March for Spring Training and had a great time. House was in great location, close to everything and still very quiet. Short drive to beach.

Pool was perfect and had lots of toys for kids.

There wasn't anything we needed, the owners thought of everything for you.

Well Organized Spacious Home With Everything You Need

  • 5 of 5

3 bedroom home is clean and well organized and contains everything you would need for any activities. The appliances are updated and bedrooms adequately spread out to allow for different sleep schedules. No issues to speak of with our stay. Central location with 20-30 minutes to beach and sits amongst many good golf courses. We played golf 3x and would recommend any of the courses we played (Tara Preserve, Waterlefe, Lakewood National - just opened in January). Used the pool several times - which was clean and includes jet tub. Owners Stu and Pauline a pleasure to work with - would love to stay there again.

Fabulous property -- highly recommend!!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful house that has everything you need for a great vacation. Indoor and outdoor space was perfect. We used as home base for a trip to universal and family visits in Bradenton. Easy drive to beach. Kids loved the pool. Pauline and Stu were very friendly and quickly answered any questions we had. We will definitely stay here again in future visits.

Feels like home

  • 5 of 5

As the weather turns colder here at home, my family is remembering our Florida vacation and we can't wait to go back. Thank you so much for letting us come and stay at your beautiful Florida home. Everything is provided so that all we had to bring was food (and there were even things in the pantry to help us get started!!). Our kids love the yellow room with the single beds, there own private space made them feel special. It's important to us when going on family vacations that they are affordable and this house/location really delivers. the rates are very good, and everything we needed is provided. The house is VERY CLEAN, the decor is lovely, the entire home is updated and tastefully decorated and doesn't feel like a tacky hotel, but rather a real home, with comfortable beds/couches, bright rooms with pretty pictures, and lovely linens and towels to use.

Access to groceries, outlet shopping, fun activities for the kids are all just minutes away. my boys love the used bookstore at the end of the road, and heading off to the beach, but most of all just wanted to swim in the amazing pool all day. nice and warm, and big enough to have fun in, the back lanai and pool are perfect for adults and kids. my husband and i could sit at the outdoor dining table and watch the kids in the pool after dinner...it was hard to get them out of the pool to go to bed!

thanks again for the lovely vacation rental. We are definitely going to book here again!

Owner's Response: Hi Trudie, so happy that your home feels like our home. We are very proud of it and as you do, we love watching everyone have fun in the pool while enjoying the sunsets in the evening. Good to hear that the children loved their room. We had fun decorating it. We will keep the pool warm and ready for you when you return....Kind regards... Stu and Pauline

Wonderful villa

  • 5 of 5

We have just completed a wonderful 9 days in this amazing villa after a week of Orlando parks. As we opened the front door to the villa it was a 'wow' moment! A real gem, ideally located to many of the beautiful gulf coast beaches, restaurants and shops. We particularly liked the restaurants in St Armands Circle, and Siesta Key beach. The owners have been very thoughtful and as soon as you arrive you have everything you need to start your holiday immediately. The villa is stunning and furnished and equipped to a very high standard. A very peaceful, private setting, over looking the golf course with much wildlife to spot as you relax by the pool. The children loved the pool and the comfy beds! We would definitely love to re-book when we return to Florida. Thank you Pauline and Stu.

Owner's Response: Hi Melanie and thank you so much for your very supportive review. We are proud our home and happy that you enjoyed your stay. You're welcome back anytime. The gulf experience is fabulous with so much going on in the area. Another favourite of mine is sitting by the pool with a drink in the evening watching the sunset slowly ebb away. Tranquil and gorgeous....Cheers...Stu and Pauline

great villa

  • 5 of 5

we stayed in the villa for 2 weeks and it was perfect for us, as it is finished to a very high standard. the pool is excellent and overlooks the golf course. the villa is in a superb location as it is close to local shops and restaurants. it is easy to drive to the beaches of the gulf coast. it was an easy process to book and pay for the rental of the villa with the owners, who are very helpful. as someone who has stayed in many rental villas in Florida in the past, this villa is the best we have stayed in. the villa is an ideal location for access to events in Tampa where we attended the baseball, soccer and music concerts. we will use this villa when we return to Florida.
