Excellent property!!

  • 5 of 5

The pictures do not do it justice. The check in process was seamless, the condo was spotless and had everything we needed. Jill & Kris, the owners, met with us to make sure everything was satisfactory and explain how to work the TV , thermostat etc and explain what amenities were available. We highly recommend

this property and plan to return.

We enjoyed a month in this clean, comfortable, uncluttered condo … perfect! Given that March 2018 was a cooler month that kept us indoors some days, it made us appreciate the condo even more. Jill and Kris, the owners, could not have been more hospitable in welcoming us and making sure we were settled. They were lovely to work with from start to finish.

The interesting and ever-changing view from the condo lania of golfers and wildlife kept us entertained every day. River Strand is an immaculate gated community with much to offer. The nearby pool was our go-to place on warm days and it was a great spot with very nice furniture. The security folks who dropped by regularly were very friendly. The staff at the administration office were pleasant and efficient.

The quiet surroundings of River Strand are a place for relaxation away from the busy activities of the Bradenton/Sarasota area. These activities do offer lots of fun nearby, even a polo match if desired, but it was always nice to come “home” to the condo.

One would not go wrong, choosing to vacation in this ideal location. Many thanks to Jill and Kris.

It is worth noting that VRBO had to be prompted to send our damage deposit refund.

Thank you again for choosing our property at River Strand. Hope to see you again soon.

Awesome amenities to please all interests.👍?🏻?!

Escaping part of the winter in Upstate New York

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful condo in a very well planned Bradenton gated community - River Strand. There is a Walmart and Publix close by for stocking supplies. Also very easy access to the main highways for exploring. In that regard, the Anna Maria Island beaches are approx. 15 miles away and Rte 64w does not have the hectic FL traffic we have seen in other places.

When you enter the condo you immediately have a panoramic view of 2 ponds + a wild life preserve + a few golf holes + the Manatee River. Wow! The condo was in great physical shape and satisfied all our needs.

We would recommend paying the River Strand temporary membership. Even if you are not a golfer or tennis player the available amenities are worth it. If you are active in either sport you will recover the fee very quickly.

If you are a walker or biker, there are many impressive areas to see in the gated community ... it will make your "exercise" pretty painless. Also there are many smaller swimming pools located throughout the complex. ..... if you prefer that setting vs the main pool (we did both).

The condo owners were wonderful . They were easy to work with before arrival + helped us settle in + checked-in periodically during our stay. Their condo reflects the personal touch that made our stay memorable. We would highly recommend renting from them.
