About Terrie and John

John and Terrie have been in the Bradenton Sarasota area since 1978. Having a golfing family brought us to this area. We raised our children and now grandchildren near the most beautiful beaches in the world. We own our business in this area and travel a lot. This is why we decided to purchase a home for a vacation rental. We want others to experience the real Florida, be comfortable and make our home yours. That's right, you will be renting Santa's Vacation Home!

Terrie and John purchased this house in 2013

Why Terrie and John chose Pine Lakes

Our Vacation Home is in West Bradenton close to beaches. We are surrounded by every amenity that Florida living has to offer. The Pine Lakes neighborhood has sidewalks, manicured yards, easy access to public transportation and only a short walk to Schools, Parks, Hospital and Churches. We chose this area because we live here and know this area best suites travelers, without being penned in by hotel, condo and villa life. When we travel we choose this type of vacation rental, and have always been so pleased and we never forget those vacations.

What makes this house unique

Our home has a great open airy feeling. The Florida room overlooks the pool. The kitchen is spacious and has easy access to dining and breakfast nook areas. Our living room is huge. The bedrooms are large and comfortable. We have a 2 car garage and access to a bathroom from the backyard pool area. This is a bright cheery home!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Terrie is an exceptionally nice host and extremely pleasant and easy to communicate with. She was very flexible with us, allowing us to check-in early. The day of check-out we called to see if we could check-out late, but the place was booked so we couldn't. Terrie however, was very gracious about it and did let us have some extra time in the house while she cleaned around us, which she certainly did not have to do, so we really appreciated that. The house was exactly as described- absolutely "sparkling clean"- and it was very comfortable to stay in. Plently of towels for bathing and the pool. The pool in back was perfect for my 3 year old and the house had noodles and other pool toys as well. The pool is well shaded in the morning too, which made it the first thing we did each day. The house is a great location and a short drive to the beach- and the house had beach stuff like towels, chairs, umbrella, sand toys. Awesome! All in all, it was a great stay and I'd definitely return and stay again if the place is available. I really can't say enough about how friendly Terrie is- she has a really great energy about her. Thanks for a great vacation! Kara”

Had a great time. Enjoyed the pool and clean home. Returning very soon. Very nice owners.

  • 5 of 5

Great place to to take your pets. We took our fish and dog. Reminder to all that take your pets. It is getting harder to find quality homes like this that accepts pets without large pet fees. We all need to clean up our pets mess so owners will continue to allow us to bring our furry friends. This property was clean inside and outside. Great owners.

Owner's Response: Thank you Ashley. Probably the best feature for you guys is the big, empty, 2 car garage and the fenced back yard with the huge gate to park the trailer! Love having you and hope to see you again next year. Terrie and John

Nice neighborhood!! Nice place!!

  • 4 of 5

Owners are very easy to get a hold of if needed. Kept us informed before our visit about the status of the property due to the hurricane. House is very nice and clean. Many things provided by owners. Very detailed information for arrival and departure. Everything was GREAT. Only suggestion would be maybe to update couch in back family room and beds. Beds aren't horrible, but getting a little worn. Will definitely rent from Terrie and John again. Thank you!!

Owner's Response: Jamie was a great guest. They were our first guests after the Hurricane, and we did have a couple of snafus, but the house thank God, made it through well. The mattress problem was resolved when I found out, during the hurricane, it was removed from the bed by my kids who had to evacuate their home. They were practicing covering up if the Hurricane took the roof off or something. That's how crazy we all got! Well, when they put it back on they placed it upside down! It's the type of mattress that you don't flip over. It's a very good mattress and I was dumbfounded when I learned from Jamie it was uncomfortable. I have guests that ask me what kind of mattress it is, because it is so comfortable! I always implore all my guests to let me know if they are dissatisfied or have a question about anything. I always take care of everything immediately. We do hope you come back again! This house has everything to make a vacation great! From crockpot to beach umbrellas and more. We try not to leave anything out! John and Terrie

Very clean with everything extra you could need

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time staying at this property and it's by far the best rental property we have stayed in so far. Everything was very clean and well kept. We came with our three year old daughter (which worries us each time), but it was very toddler friendly. There were toys for her, as well as board games to keep us all busy as a family. We also loved that there were extra beach chairs for trips to the beach (which is only a 15 minute drive down the road) and floats for the pool. We would recommend this place over and over again and we hope to be staying here again on our next visit to Bradenton.

Owner's Response: Family time is so important to us, and the little time we all have to enjoy with the family should be worry and hassle free. It is our pleasure to help make the precious time as fun and memorable as possible. We are so glad we can accommodate wonderful families, like yours, in our vacation home. Many people do return year after year. They have made it their Home Away from Home! Thank you for this wonderful review and being our guests.

Bradenton is home to The Pittsburg Pirates Spring Training only 2 miles and the Orioles, Yankees, Phillies, Rays, Red Sox’s, Twins and Tigers in nearby cities.
