Perfectly located next to IMG Academy

What makes this villa unique

The sunrise view over the golf course in the morning is beautiful. Cook a meal in our fully equipped kitchen, sit on the patio to enjoy your meal, go for a morning walk in the quiet, friendly neighborhood, go for a swim in the pool. You can use our golf cart to go for a ride around the neighborhood, or go to the pro shop to schedule a round of golf. After lunch head 9.5 miles west to the beautiful beaches in Bradenton Beach or Anna Maria Island. Anna Maria Island is a quaint beach town with shops, restaurants, mini golf, 3 fishing piers, and much more. You can go parasailing, ride a wave runner, or go on a chartered fishing boat. Drive a bit further and you'll be on Longboat Key, Lido Key, or Siesta Key. Sarasota is a 20 minute drive where you will find the Mote Aquarium, Jungle Gardens, and the Ringling Brothers Art museum, just to name a few of the many attractions and activities this area has to offer. Feel free to contact me on my cell if you have questions, or would like more information.

Good location. House cleaner needs to do a much better job.

  • 4 of 5

Plenty of burnt out light bulb. Owner bought replacement so I did the maintenance to free. So light switches did not do anything placement of light switches could have been a lot better. You have to walk in a dark room find the switch in the dark to get light. Electrican was pretty bad. Got two TV side by side I think we need head phones so we won’t disturb each other. Pool table was nice. Next time we will bright a stool for my wife to get into bed. She’s 5’2” too short for the bed. We stayed for 24 days I played golf at IMG and the County course While wife enjoyed her time with her sister BTW tennis at United was great Coming back next year

Wonderful vacation experience at IMG

  • 5 of 5

We truly loved our two month stay at the rental at IMG.

So much, we have requested the same villa for a four (4) month stay starting Jan. 2016.

We were in close proximity to golf, beach, shopping, and restaurants, the things we spent our vacation doing.

I personally loved the fact it was right on the golf course. I almost felt like a 'marshall' at a PGA event!

The owners were very helpful in attending to our needs immediately upon request.

Both my wife and myself enjoyed the fact that we had cleaning service every two weeks. That was very helpful to us.

We truly enjoyed our stay at this IMG villa!!! The location of the property is excellent with close proximity to IMG, Sarasota downtown, Long Boat Key and Anna Maria Island. The villa is very comfortable and is situated in a quite and nice neighborhood. Monica was extremely helpful and attended to our needs promptly. If we were to return to the area, we would definitely rent the villa again!

IMG Golf Villa - Bradenton

  • 4 of 5

Nice villa, great view overlooking the golf course. The villa was nicely appointed, 2 very nice TV's and the pool table was great for the cooler days. The golf cart was great to have, I used it to drive to the golf club and the pool. The owners answered all of my questions in a very timely manner.

28 day Snowbirds

  • 4 of 5

We truely enjoyed our stay at the IMG Villa that we rented. The weather was fantastic and the spacious Villa truely complimented our stay. The Villa was exactly as presented on VRBO and the Villa owners were very pleasant to deal with. This was our 1st time of doing an extended stay in Florida during the winter months and we were very pleased as to how simple and smoothly our experience was. We would strongly recommend this Villa to anyone wanting to rent a really nice place on a beautiful Golf Course that is a short drive to the beach.

Bradenton Property

  • 5 of 5

Loved this property! This was the first time my family had rented a property through the VRBO. We found the experience extremely easy and comfortable to use. The house was In a fabulous location. Right next to the pool, the golf club and the tennis facilities. It was also in great condition. The owners were excellent to work with. They were prompt in addressing the few concerns we had, and our family had a wonderful vacation experience. It was so good in fact, that we have rented with these owners again.
