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 Tara Golf & Country Club

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.

Nice house in a fantastic location!

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of 5 that love to golf and play tennis and this property is perfect for that. Very nice layout; spacious and clean. The location is very accessible being not far off I75. Located close to shopping; Publix just up the street. Ellenton only 10 minutes away one way and UTC 10 minutes away the other. Stu and Pauline were very accommodating and responsive. Would highly recommend it.

Great home and great owners, too. We love everything about the place!

  • 5 of 5

This is a very nice property with everything you could hope for in a rental property. Very clean, well equipped, quiet, safe and has beautiful surroundings. Sit by the pool and watch the sunsets each night. Perfect layout, too. Great for golfers as the home backs right up to the course and the owner’s membership is transferable for a reasonable fee. Pauline and Stu are great to work with. Just please don’t rent this house on the dates we want next year!!!! 😂

Nice neighborhood, clean, nice pool area.

  • 4 of 5

Need larger TV in master bedroom $ & window covering in master bedroom. We would suggest putting small tv in kitchen area & additional larger one in master.

Also would be nice to have waterproof cushions for chairs at pool.

But very clean and owners were very responsive by email or phone. 😊

Excellent location and layout

  • 5 of 5

Would highly recommend this property to anyone. The only drawback for us was that the hot tub wasn't hot enough. Other than that we had a great time there. Hope that we will be able to get it again next year

Good stay

  • 5 of 5

Lovely property. It was useful to have 3 bathrooms to go with 3 rooms. Saved on having to wait when you wanted to go out. Also nice to have a separate room for relaxing in and for watching television. Grandson is into his sport and loves watching both soccer and NFL but we didn’t all want it on and the 3 Arsenal supporters in our group were impressed that they could watch their team live. The Bose music system is excellent. Most of the time we ate in the lanai at the large table by the pool.

We had everything we needed in the villa and spent every spare moment in the pool which overlooks the golf course and small lake. We looked forward each day to seeing the young alligator sunning itself on the bank - from the safety of the lanai of course. When we wanted the beach there were ample loungers and chairs and a choice of body boards. The local Publix is only a short drive away and the Walmart not much further beyond. We have stayed in Bradenton before and love it, and I would have no hesitation to stay here again.
