About Joseph Jusko

Our dream to own a second home in Florida in a people friendly golf community has come true! We love River Strand and hope you enjoy this community as much as we do. Lush landscaping and the warm tropical climate make us feel like we are in paradise every time we visit. But it is the people of the River Strand community that may it a place we love coming back to. The staff is friendly and courteous to your needs and the residents here are fun, down to earth people whom we have made great friendships.

Why Joseph Jusko chose Bradenton

Ground floor condo is very convenient for pet owners and the elderly. No climbing steps or the inconvenience of using elevators. The views are outstanding and if you love nature you will see it all! Birds, fish, otters even a few alligators!

What makes this condo unique

It's all about the view! We spend hours just sitting on the lanai watching all of the wildlife with a water view.

Wonderful Condo

  • 5 of 5

While we only intended to stay a month or so, we ended up staying at this terrific condo nearly 4 months while we waited (and waited) for our new house to be built. Joe and Olga provided us amazing hospitality in this 2 br/2 ba unit located in the very beautifully landscaped (with ridiculously easy access to I-75), River Strand community. The condo is clean, comfortable, on the ground floor, surrounded by quiet, rarely seen neighbors, and has a small lanai with a front-row seat to witness some incredible wildlife. There is a small satellite pool down the block and a couple of bikes to get there. Easy access to shopping, restaurants, and beaches. We are not golfers, but the courses are beautiful and the owner's make transferring their membership a snap. The A/C worked great--that's important during the humid, hot summer months! The unit faces north so can imagine that fall and winter temps and afternoon breezes would be incredible. There is plenty of storage, a full-size W/D, and everything is well stocked. There is just so much to do that is just a short drive from the Bradenton/Sarasota area. If you want to stay in a beautiful condo with flexible, patient, compassionate, and responsive owners, this is the condo for you!

Late spring 2015 Florida visit

  • 5 of 5

We spent the month of May 2015 at this condo. We have visited the Bradenton area for many years but have never stayed in a condo property with so many amenities. The golf course was well cared for and the staff was very friendly. Even though I was a "transfer" owner I received the same courtesy and attention as a full-time owner. The pools and walking trails were fabulous. We especially enjoyed the home away from home feeling of the condo unit. Since it is a first floor unit, it was very easy for us to access the unit with our dog both from the front door as well as the lanai in the rear. Needless to say, the view from the lanai poised a spectacular view of the golf course, the lake and the sunsets. The owners were very accommodating to minor adjustments in our schedule and we're very friendly during the total, enjoyable stay. We highly recommend this condo to anyone wishing to rent here.

March Winter Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautifully new property which met our expectations in every way. The condo is tastefully decorated and very comfortable. Situated right on a golf course, this is a perfect spot for the avid golfer. The courses are very well maintained. Enjoyed walking the many paths throughout the community and seeing the abundant wildlife and nature. The condo itself is very quiet and private. With quick access to I-75 it's easy to get out and explore all this area has to offer. We found the owners to be attentive to the important details needed to make our stay carefree and enjoyable. We definitely recommend this property!

Excellent Vacation Rental

  • 5 of 5

I spent 3 very comfortable and relaxing weeks in this condo. The location on the ground floor suited me. I could sit on the lanai and watch the water birds, very pretty view. The condo was clean, well equiped, and the owners were attentive to details and answered questions promply. I am not a golfer, but I enjoyed walking on the complex. River Strand is not far from shopping and restaurants and it is easy to access I-75. I would definitely recommend it!
