About Nanci Murray

My husband and I were blessed to realize our dream of owning a Florida vacation property. Since we are too young to retire quite yet and spend our winters down in the sunny, warm Gulf Coast, we are happy to share our new home with you.

We believe our condo is the perfect place to spend a fun and relaxing family vacation, or use for an extended stay. It's in the ideal spot and offers something for everyone to enjoy everyday. We are committed to offering you a home away from home where you can relax, kickback and have fun. We have gone to great lengths to ensure you will have everything you need to enjoy your stay and have a wonderful vacation.

Nanci Murray purchased this condo in 2014

Why Nanci Murray chose Florida South West

Family members purchased a home in the Bradenton area, we really enjoyed our time visiting and thought it would be a great place for us too! It's close proximity to Tampa, Sarasota and beautiful beaches like Siesta Keys, Anna Maria Island and all its amazing beaches, the golf and tennis, and resort like amenities at River Strand make it just right for us, and we hope you too!

What makes this condo unique

River Stand has everything we want! Beautiful grounds, secure front gate, fabulous club house, tropical pools and unlimited tennis and golf, you can't beat it!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Nancy,

It is time we made you aware of how we totally enjoyed April 2015 at your

condo at the River Strand Golf community. We felt at home the minute we

walked in , everything was as advertised. No surprises.

Clean, comfortable, tastefully decorated, extremely well equipped kitchen -

we wanted for nothing. Golf clubs being available certainly lightened our

load for the trip - many thanks.

Considerable hours were passed on the balcony watching the comings and

goings of the various birds, one rabbit and of course "Sunny" the gator who

we watched plying the waters and resting in the sun on the opposite shore.

This was our first golf vacation and we obviously picked the right place.

River Strand has it all - the golf courses, the driving range, the club

house, the dining, the entertainment - all first class.

Our 2016 plans are on the drawing board and hopefully will lead us back to

River Strand.

Regards,

Jim and Sharon

Relaxing Stay

  • 5 of 5

The condo is exactly as the pictures show and the view was more relaxing then expected. The kitchen was extremely well outfitted, there are 2 Publix grocery stores within 10 minutes and don't miss stopping at one of the fresh fish markets in Cortez. We took advantage of the local pool, 5 min walk for swimming laps every day. There were rarely more than a couple other people there when we were there mid-day. Thank you Nanci for being a great host, sharing your condo and all of your assistance.

What a wonderful condo, beautifully furnished and immaculate. The view is spectacular, Happy Hour on the Lanai watching Alligators, Birds, and many other forms of wildlife. We enjoyed every moment. River Strand is a beautiful neighbourhood and the Clubhouse and Pool area were terrific.

Thank you Nanci and Brian, our plan is to be back next year.

Enjoy!

What a wonderful experience!

  • 5 of 5

We were very fortunate to be able to rent this condo for two months this year. All of the previous reviews express our feelings as well. River Strand is a beautiful area. You can be as busy or relaxed as you want. You don't have to go far outside the community for excellent shopping. The condo was perfect. Very clean, well stocked with everything you need and comfortable. Nanci and Brian are excellent to deal with. Thank you so much and we look forward to future stays!

Very nice property!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent the month of January 2016 at this condo and really enjoyed our stay. It is in a great location to golf, play tennis, take long walks or just relax. The condo was very clean and we had everything we needed - the kitchen was well stocked with everything necessary to prepare meals. The owners were excellent to deal with. After we were there a few days, they contacted us to make sure there were no issues and provided their contact information should we need to reach them. They had left detailed instructions to guide us during our stay which was very handy. Thank you Nanci!

Five Star Condo

  • 5 of 5

Wow, what can one say about an enjoyable month. We didn’t want to leave at the end of our stay.

From the time we entered River Strand all of our expectations were met.

The condo was very clean, and it truly was a home away from home! We had everything we needed to make our stay comfortable. The River Strand community offered a variety of activities including a fully equipped gym, a variety of exercise classes, swimming pools, a resistance pool and 27 holes of golf. Nearby shopping, shopping outlets and eateries were available to round out our stay.

Nanci and Brian were always available to meet any unexpected needs if so required, and a huge thank you to both of them!

We are looking forward to staying again!

Impeccably maintained and decorated to feel like home. The best part is thekindness of the owners!

  • 5 of 5

This is our second year staying at Nanci & Brian's lovely condo with a great view, well equipped kitchen and CLEAN!! We will be back again, if at all possible. The owners go to great lengths to assure your stay feels just like home. No request is too small, no problem goes unattended, and their warm kindness makes them feel more like friends than 2 people running a rental business. We don't golf, but our golfing friends in the area claim this as one of their favorite courses. HIGHLY recommend, just so long as they don't get so booked up that we can't get a reservation! Thanks for another great stay.
