Perfect spot for our family reunion

  • 5 of 5

This is a great house!

The best feature is the pool. We were a group of nine who had not seen each other for a while, and we spent most of the time hanging out in and around the pool and the hot tub. The pool was warm, close to the house, well screened and the perfect place to be.

The second great feature is that every bedroom has its own bathroom - a huge benefit. And there are additional bathrooms on the main floor, so there is never a line up.

Finally, the house is very well equipped, plenty of room for nine and could have fit more, and everything seems to work (which is unusual.) Even the internet is good!

The house was such a great place that some days we hardly went anywhere - the pool won out over the beach.

Great place to stay in Bradenton, and I thoroughly recommend it.

Look no further~we have already done the leg work!

  • 5 of 5

This is our fourth year vacationing in the Mansion. We use the home away, vrbo sites to look for properties that suit our family of 12. Sincerely, there is not another property in this area or even close surrounding areas, that come near to the quality of home or the price. (Other than Carol's other properties in Bradenton!) Carol is very fair and it is so easy to know that she aims to help your vacation be like home. There are tons of dishes, pans, plates, silverware~all you need for preparing meals, as if you were in your own kitchen. Plenty of quality towels, bedding, beach towels, blankets. A working computer, with wifi, a printer with ink and even paper! The pool was literally so warm it was like walking into a bathtub. A sparkling clean hot tub. All types of restaurants, Wal-mart, and similar types of stores are within minutes of driving. Even the number 1 rated beach in America (Siesta Key) is a worth it, one hour drive! There is a Saturday local farmers market that we have used and are thrilled it is available! Our family calls this our 'vacation home,' as it feels like it is our home away from home. A few minor things were mentioned, SOLELY to make Carol aware, as she would have never known unless she literally lived in the home, and she was ready on the spot within minutes to quickly and perfectly help. We all want to travel to other locations in the U.S., but she has spoiled us so much with her incredible home, that we find it difficult to pull away from Bradenton! Thank you, Carol, for such a welcoming home! We know we have found a great property when your number is entered in our cell phones! :-) We will be in touch for future vacations! Kathy

We are very pleased with what Carol has done. We gave her some tips on like light bulbs and stuff flexible (easily). Right away things were fixed and the pool is great! Carol is a wonderful lady to work with and I would love to stay here again, in a heart beat! Thank You Carol for what you have done this week!

My family and I loved our vacation . The house was very spacious,clean and homey. On our arrival Carol was there to greet us and what a gem she is! Very helpful and accommodating. The pool was used constantly and yes it's heated. And than we have the kitchen. There is everything you can imagine plus more in the cupboards! She even had dish soap and laundry soap! Oh and a junk drawer with all kinds of things you may need!

We can't find enough kind words to say about Carol and her house.

Highly recommend renting from Carol.

We had a wonderful time!!!

  • 5 of 5

There were 14 of us that stayed at "The Mansion" for our family vacation. This was the first time we attempted to get everyone together at once. It was amazing. The ages of our group ranged from 3-91 and there was something there for everyone. From the start, Carol, was great to work with. She answered my questions promptly and graciously. The week before we arrived, I wrote and asked if there were box type fans in the rooms as some of us need them to sleep or if we needed to pack them. Either way was fine with me. She wrote back that no, the rooms only had ceiling fans. No problem, I packed a fan. Upon our arrival, there were window type fans in each room. Superb service!!! The manager, Chris, was great and easily reached if there was questions. This house is well kept and we very much enjoyed our stay. If we are lucky enough to return, Carol will get our business.

Great space

  • 4 of 5

We stayed three weeks with family and friends coming to join us at different times. Everyone really enjoyed their stay, none wanted to leave when their time was up! Some even changed their plans and stayed longer. The pool and games rooms were big hits. We were close to many activities and took full advantage of them. Manatee Beach on Anna Maria Island was beautiful and only a ten minute drive away. We hope to go back again some day!
