A Beautiful Condo in a great Development!

  • 5 of 5

We were lucky enough to spend a month in this gorgeous condo in the River Strand Development of Bradenton. The view was so calm and peaceful overlooking the golf course and Manatee River. Although we do not golf we certainly appreciated the lush scenery, along with the resident turtles and birds in the pond as seen from the lanai.

The condo was the cleanest we have ever encountered in our several rentals, comfortably furnished with nice bedding, ample linens, kitchen utensils and everything one needed to set up a temporary home.

The pools, clubhouse and grounds are so very well maintained. The location was excellent , right off I 75 which allowed us to go to different areas easily.

We had a problem with the USPS forwarding our mail and Scott was kind enough to make a trip to the post office to return our mail back to us. That was so very thoughtful of him to do so. He also checked in on us after we arrived to make sure everything was to our liking. Such a nice personal touch!

We would certainly recommend this condo, the photos are accurate and we truly enjoyed our stay at this property. We would definitely consider renting this unit again.

The VIEW in this condo is amazing! Peaceful and luxurious River Strand!

  • 5 of 5

Definately recommend this condo! We stayed for the month of March--we're NOT golfers, but multiple pools and pickleball and tennis are just amazing here. This condo is well appointed and the view of the beautiful Manatee River makes this location really special. We found the owner to be incredibly responsive to the few questions that we had. There are lots of activities that you can join in if you want to. River Strand is less than 30 minutes from the Gulf Coast beaches (on good traffic days!). The new University Town Center mall and all that surrounds it was great on rainy days. I am spoiled now!

A Great Vacation Lodging

  • 5 of 5

We were so lucky to find this place. Brand new with professional designer furnishings and a picture-postcard view! On top of that, the owners could not have been nicer. River Strand has golf, tennis, fitness facilities, multiple pools including a resort-style one with a restaurant. The location is outstanding. You can get to Bradenton's charming downtown in just fifteen minutes with theatre, museum, farmers' market, restaurants and the new riverwalk. The beach is about twenty minutes farther. You're also an easy drive to Lakewood Ranch's town center which is well worth a visit. I-75 is right outside the entrance to Heritage Harbour of which River Strand is a part, so it's easy to travel to points north or south. The condo itself has everything you need: full kitchen facilities, washer, dryer, multiple flat-screen tv's with a nice movie library, a screened-in balcony great for watching golfers and wildlife. There are more dishes, towels and pillows than you'll ever use. With all the nice designer touches, it feels very luxurious. Scott and Mary (the owners) even provided tennis racquets and beach chairs! This place is a ten!
