About Anthony Barresi

I'm born and raised in Ottawa Canada. I own rental properties in Ottawa and I've always had the desire to own a property in Florida. I started my google search with 'what's the number #1 beach in the USA' and it turns out Siesta Keys beach is just that. I also have a love of golf so I then searched for near golf courses and gladly stumbled across River Strand Golf & Country Club. I knew then that this was going to be the place.

Anthony Barresi purchased this condo in 2014

Why Anthony Barresi chose Bradenton

I flew down to investigate and to familiarize myself with area and community. The minute I drove through the Heritage Harbor community entrance road, I was instantly impressed. The lushly maintained landscape with the oversize roads made everything look so grand. I then drove up to the gates of River Strand community and was greeted by a friendly guard that took my information and asked me some questions. Once through the gates the road lead me straight to the River Strand Golf and Country Club, I was in awe! I was sold right then and there. I then went with my agent to view the condo and couldn't believe my eyes. The unit was spectacular, but what sold me the most was the unbelievable view from the screened in terrace. The lake view in combination with golf course and seamlessly blended in background of the forest preserve. I then thought this just doesn't get any better, but it does. I then notice in the near distance I can see a clear view of the bay of the Manatee Lake. WOW! WOW! WOW!

What makes this condo unique

The location, the views, the golf course, the luxurious condo, these are many reasons I fell in love with this area. There's unlimited golf, tennis courts, resort style pool and exercise room. There's an endless amount of things to do. Whether you love golf, shopping, pro sports, theater, musicals, museums, theme parks, fishing, boating, swimming. You name it this place and location has what your looking for and it will exceed any expectations. It's truly your one stop dream vacation. Everyone will find something to do no matter what the age.

Winter holiday

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay in Anthony’s condo. The condo was very clean and well appointed. Anthony was very attentive and sent an email daily to keep us informed on what was happening at the club house. Location was very good. We golfed a few rounds at the golf course and found the course to be in really good shape. I would recommend this condo to anyone traveling to Bradenton.

A beautiful and quiet place with a lovely view!

  • 5 of 5

This comfortable and roomy 2 bedroom/2 bath condo on the third floor overlooking the golf course was just beautiful. It was clean and well-appointed with absolutely everything we needed. We spent roughly 3 months enjoying it immensely. It was quiet and well-located to River Strand's Clubhouse, golf course and fitness centers. Anthony, the owner of the unit, was a pleasure to deal with.

Our retired and golfing vacation

  • 5 of 5

This was our second visit to this condo and we were not disappointed. River Strand is a great place to vacation. It is close to malls and grocery shopping. The grounds are very well manicured and maintained. We could bicycle to the gym and pools. The golf course is challenging but good for improving your game. Staff and residents are so friendly. The condo is very clean and equipped with everything needed for your stay. It is roomy with nice furnishings and appliances. We enjoyed sitting on the screened balcony watching the golfers tee off. This was our favourite place to relax after golf. Anthony is very accommodating and easy to contact with any concerns. He kept us up to date with current activities. We had a great time and have already told Anthony we want to come back next year. Looking forward to another stay in 2018.

Outstanding Condo and Facilities. A great place to vacation.

  • 5 of 5

Renting takes a leap of faith and we were not disappointed. The condo is tastefully decorated, clean and well maintained. The kitchen is well stocked with all the necessary dishes and cookware. The balcony overlooking the 8th hole become our favorite place to enjoy a meal. The view of the golf course is breathtaking with lots of wildlife. The amenities at River Strand are excellent. The golf course is well maintained with a variety of tee boxes for all skill levels. The fitness facilities and pools are outstanding. The condo is in close proximity to shopping and dining with several beaches a short drive away. The owner kept us informed of all activities going on at the golf course, club house and River Strand which was greatly appreciated. He was particularly responsive to all our questions as we got familiar with the area. A great way to spend a vacation.

A lovely condo, tastefully furnished and well-equipped;the photos provide a true picture of the unit. The lanai overlooks a pond which is a habitat for an alligator, turtles, cranes,etc .Golfers can also be viewed on the 8th tee of the Sanctuary course.

Riverstrand is a gated, safe, quiet, and inviting community with excellent golf and tennis facilities, a beautiful clubhouse and dining room, a large central pool area, a modern fitness facility, and smaller neighbourhood pools.

The owner is very congenial and accommodating.

We certainly enjoyed our April stay, and highly recommend this condo.
