We fell in love with the Bradenton area twenty two years ago and decided to purchase this home as overflow for our other vacation property and for our families to enjoy. The proximity to Busch Gardens, Disney and the beach is what attracted us to this city. Whether you like to shop, golf, baseball with the Pirates, or enjoying local orange groves at Mixon Fruit Farms Bradenton has something to offer everyone that visits.
Rhonda purchased this House in 1996
Why Rhonda chose Bradenton
This home has it all, private backyard, community setting, centrally located, close to I-75, beaches, shopping, and close to downtown. Easy to hit the interstate and be at Prime Ellenton outlets in 10 minutes, Tampa in 45 minutes, or Orlando in 90 minutes, and the new mall at University Town Center is 10 min while IMG Academy is about 20 minutes away. This home has plenty of space for the whole family, grandchildren, 2 couples can fit comfortably and is located on a back street. The home itself is one of the best homes in this subdivision. The amenities are too many to list but the backyard oasis is one the best you will find without being directly on the beach. This home meets all of our extended families needs and there is plenty of room for the family dog to run in the backyard.
What makes this House unique
Backyard entertaining area that could easily fit 10 people for a fantastic Florida vacation. Really there is no need to go to the beach when everything you need is at this home. When you think of a Florida home and living the ultimate Florida lifestyle this home would fit the bill. You can open all 4 of the sliders and hear the pool from every room. The home is private with no back neighbors only two side neighbors. Easy commute to IMG, Orlando, Tampa, or Naples.

Great location, perfect for a large group
We enjoyed this beautiful home and were able to lounge around the pool and BBQ at our leisure, while being just 15 minutes from AMI. Rhonda is a great property owner.
Lovely and spacious
We viewed this rental last year when we were in Bradenton, and knew right away it was exactly what we were looking for! It was bright, with windows giving welcome views of the pool in the fenced in back yard. Our Wheaten pup loved running around getting all her needed exercise! Plenty of eating areas, kitchen/tv room; dining room and table and chairs on patio by the pool, which was a favorite with our guests! The heated pool was a big plus and it was the main entertainment for our grandchildren from morning til night!! Appreciated having the sleep sofa which we needed as well as the 2 extra bedrooms. The kitchen was well equipped; a lot of cupboard and counter space; supplies of essentials; spices, condiments, napkins, paper towels etc. Also, laundry room too, was well equipped with detergent, dry hanging rack, and cleaning tools!!! We also appreciated having a garage and our grandchildren enjoyed the use of the nearby playground!! The supermarket was a five minute drive which was especially convenient. Highly recommend this comfortable home and would definitely rent again when we return to Bradenton . The owner, Rhonda Jolly was welcoming and accessible by text or phone calls.
Rental agent, house, neighborhood, location all first rate. A value for your dollar.
We enjoyed our two week stay at this wonderfully situated house. We took peaceful morning walks through the nice neighborhood across from houses that line the scenic and unspoilt Braden River. We were minutes away from I75 which took us to St Petersburg and Sarasota. The house contained just about everything we needed for an extended stay. Rhonda was available to answer questions or address a couple of minor issues within minutes.
Happy happy happy!
The short of it: Rhonda is the first person we will call, hands down, for future trips to the area.
The long side: we love this house! Our three basic requirements were pool, enough space for our big family, and affordability. Score on all three! This is a beautiful home in a quiet neighborhood. It truly felt like home away from home. The kids spent many hours in the pool. The cost for heating the pool was absolutely worth it. The bubbler and colorful LED lighting add a great touch. We love the easy access to the pool bath, and the glass sliding doors that open up to the pool from three different rooms. Cooking was a breeze in the well-equipped kitchen and on the NICE gas grill. The pool and home are as beautiful as the pictures.
NOTE! The noisy bed issue in the master bedroom mentioned in earlier reviews was TAKEN CARE OF during our stay (thanks Rhonda!). The noise was coming from the box springs, and was quickly eliminated with new boxes, personally delivered and set up by Rhonda and her son.
This house will be the first one on our radar for upcoming trips to Bradenton!
The pool was the highlight of our stay!
The pool was awesome! The water was as warm as a bathtub! There is a playground and tennis courts 5-10 min walking distance.
