The best accommodation I've ever had the pleasure of renting!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful grounds, gracious and helpful hosts, luxurious furnishings, well-equipped kitchen, amazing decor, and a private screened porch. Easy access to grocery shopping at Publix. And a central location for us birdwatchers--from Fort DeSoto to Oscar Scherer SP and the celery fields. What more can I say?

Lovely and tranquil

  • 5 of 5

Its a great place in a quiet neighborhood. Its tastefully furnished and has all the conveniences you would want. The house is on the slow-moving Braden River and the property is beautiful. Publix and restaurants are just a couple minutes away. Its also close to downtown Bradenton, Lecom Field, Myakka State Park, and Lakewood Ranch. The owners are very nice and helpful - great people to deal with. We hope to go again next year!
