We are a family of 4, (two teens) in Florida but this was our first visit to the west cost, I just rent for 4 nigths as we were celebrating my wife's bday...House is in great condition, pool is very well maintain with weekly maintenance. Option for a boat rental that I did not take but will consider for next time. Soon we will be back for a full week, the house was perfect with all amenities, very well located close to St Petersburg, Ana Maria beach and Sarasota, quiet area,

Arrangement for rental was simple and smooth, instructions easy to follow. In general a great experience

The whole family enjoy it...

Anna Maria Island

The stunning kilometer-long white beaches on Anna Maria Island can be reached in about a 30 minute drive. Pure swimming fun. Not rare: dolphins in open nature! Anna Maria is always a secret tip! The villa is located in the community of 'Branden River Lakes'. In addition to the communal pool, our small guests can play on the playground, a tennis court is available free of charge. Supermarkets (Publix, Wal Mart) and small restaurants (Chinese, Mexican, traditional hamburger) are nearby. After a 15 minute drive, you can reach the outlet mall in Ellenton (among others, Hilfiger, R. Lauren, DKNY, GAP) and a 30 minute drive to Florida's cultural capitol of Sarasota, including Ringeling Museum. The amusement parks in Orlando, Disney Land, Sea World, Universal Studios or Kennedy Space Center are just under a 2 hour drive. Don't forget: Busch Gardens, about 1 hour. Nearby you will find multiple golf courses.

Other Activities: ride motorboat, directly from the dock

Golf: A paradise for golfers: in Bradenton and environment you will find more than 30 golf courses. Nearby we recommend the River Run Golf Course. This golf club offers you a unique combination of difficulties. Not without reason, this golf club has become one of the most popular golf courses, which was redesigned in 2005 by Azinger-Lewis. Training hours are possible, rental clubs can be rented. More information can be found in our 'house folder'.
