About Eileen Antonelli

Joe and Eileen Antonelli grew up in NY and have been married for over 30 years . Eileen is a Registered Nurse and Joe works in clinical research. We vacationed all over Florida for over 28 years but fell in love with Bradenton when our two daughters came her to go to Ringling College, for animation and one for design and sculpting. We loved the area . and moved to Bradenton permanently in 2011. We now are grandparents and spend time enjoying our kids, as well as spend a lot of time boating and fishing in manatee river. We live full time Bradenton and are just a phone call away if you need anything

Eileen Antonelli purchased this house in 2004

Why Eileen Antonelli chose Bradenton

Both of our daughters attended Ringling College and they lived in this house during that time. We love this community, the view, and the neighbors are the best. Our daughters live the area, and we still have our family stay here at this house when they come down from the NE to visit us to get away from the cold! We personally take care of this house, and treat our guests like family.

What makes this house unique

A beautiful house that we are proud to have family and friends stay in. The hotels do not compare. This is Close to everything, has everything you need, close to great restaurants, fun activities, great neighborhood for kids to play. Close to Walmart, Publix, Sam's club. A home away from home Large roomy space with everything you need and a great lake behind the house. The duck, and birds are beautiful to watch in the morning with a cup of coffee. Neighbors are very friendly, and helpful.

Everything As Advertised

  • 5 of 5

We were three men who were in the area for the NCAA Women's Division I National Golf Tournament.

The location and accommodations were great for our needs and much, much better than the alternative

hotel or motel accommodations. It would be excellent for a golfing outing as lots of golf courses in the


We can confirm what other reviewers have written. However, would like to emphasize that the owners

are easy to work with and response is almost immediate. It is obvious that the pride in the upkeep

makes you realize and feel that you are a guest in their home.

This house was located in a quite neighborhood. After long days on the baseball field it was great to not have to go back to a crowded hotel. Very clean and all the comforts of my own home. No Loki g for parking or elevators.

Perfect vacation, and perfect house for a guy's getaway

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect, it was close to everything . We went golfing at 3 different great courses, close by , went horse back riding on Anna Maria, and went to the Bradenton Motor sports park. the homeowners were very helpful and gave us great recommendations and even connected us to local discounts on the activities and gave a list of all the best local restaurants . And We were able to BBQ at the house one evening while one of my buddies did some fishing in the pond in the back where he caught a nice 5 lb bass. Thank you Eileen we will be back next year for sure!

Enjoyable 2 week stay in spacious well situated holiday home.

  • 4 of 5

We were very pleased to have enjoyed 2 weeks in this very spacious home (May 2016). The property fully met our expectations and we would have no problem recommending it to others as well as booking it again ourselves.

It was reassuring knowing that close neighbours were close by if we needed any help (which we did not).

We found it great for Siesta Key village and beach, Anna Marie Island. we particularly enjoyed Turtles restaurant at Turtle Beach, the Village café in Siesta Key village and the Sandbar waterside restaurant on Anna Marie. We also enjoyed Applebees, Longhorn and Fishbone Grill which were all within a reasonable drive from the Villa. Ellenton Mall is probably too close for my credit card to remain solvent.

To improve our next stay may I suggest a kettle be made available ( a British thing!!) and that the outside patio seat covers be kept in lanai to protect from occasional thunderstorm and the garden sprinkler system
