Walk out from the kitchen door to a large screened in Lanai with Patio furniture enough for everyone to sit and take in the sunsets. Lovely place to eat your meals and a refrigerator is also on the lanai for your beverages or more space for your food. The ice maker in the refrigerator will help fill your coolers for your beach trips. If you want to grill out a charcoal grill is provided but you provide the charcoal.

There is plenty of parking under the carport tall enough for most toys. If you like to boat there are close boat launch areas and ample parking at the house when not in use.

If heading to the beach there are beach chairs and umbrellas in the outbuilding located at the home. There might even be a few buckets and sand tools.

So much to do in the area, If you like to golf you have many golf courses around the area. Your stay is in close proximity to lots of shopping including specialty high end in Sarasota to a huge Flea Market with everything from food to furniture. There is something for everyone.
Lots of tourist attractions for day trips and locally and plenty to do year round. Ringling Brothers Circus museum and 30 room home is close for a wonderful history of the circus. You are only about an hour to Busch Gardens in Tampa. IMG Academy is just a few blocks away. Love Baseball? Pittsburgh Pirates spring camp is held in Bradenton at MeKechnie Field and just blocks away.
If you love to eat out there is anything from the Pancake All You Can Eat offering at the beach to exquisite culinary restaurants everywhere meeting your pocketbook needs.
One of our favorite places to eat is Anna Marie Oyster Bar on Cortez. They have wonderful seafood specials each day for a very affordable price.
There are so many restaurants in the beach area. We will share a few names.
Cortez Kitchen, sounds like a sandwich shop but they have some really good seafood platters and meals and also offer entertainment regularly. It is right on the water and right next door is the Swordfish Grill, great seafood and great entertainment there as well. Make it a point to check these places out. They are easily overlooked but once you find them you will go back again.
Another great place you would easily overlook is Sharky's Seagrill on the way to Bradenton Beach.

You are fifteen minutes from the Sarasota - Bradenton Airport and Interstate 75 or an hour to the Tampa Airport.

Whether you are a business or a leisure traveler, we at Nelson and Associates offer the home away from home with rental by the week or the month.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2003

About the owner: My husband and I have been going to Florida since we married in 2002 and built this place in 2003. Unfortunately he lost his battle with cancer August 8, 2014. We both had been going to Florida for 50 years +. We both loved to fish and boat on Little Blue River, a tributary of the Ohio River, back in Indiana and we also have a little fishing camp on Lake Cumberland in KY. We have not been the typical snow birds. We loved to go to the beach in the summer and didn't mind the heat. So Florida in summer and fall was our favorite time thus making this great home available for the snow birds that want to avoid the harsh winters. I will continue to go in the summer and fall. I have four grown children three of which are married. Two of the married couples have children so my travels take me to see my children and grandchildren periodically since only one child lives in Indiana. My son and his wife are expecting their first child in November 2015.

Why the Owner Chose Bradenton, FL, USA:
This location was owned by my family since the 70's. Beautifully set amongst 100 year old oak trees and palm trees and backed up to McCollum Lake with gorgeous sunsets and a breeze every afternoon. Hope you can visit!
