About Bob Cowper
We have owned our home for twelve years and are from Gullane, East Lothian, Scotland. Our family enjoy our vacations at the villa with the boys enjoying the golf whilst the girls love the shopping, of course everyone enjoys the pool and the idillic setting that the home is situated in.
Bob Cowper purchased this Villa in 2005
Why Bob Cowper chose Sabal Harbour
This property is one of the largest in Sabal Harbour and undoubtedly has the best outlook with commanding views over the lake in both south and westerly directions. The amount of wildlife is phenomenal with reed beds providing nesting for our resident Sand Cranes and fishing grounds for the Great Blue Heron, Osprey and many other birds.
What makes this Villa unique
Our villa is ideally situated not only because of the location on the estate and large pool but its proximity to local amenities such as Shopping Plazas including Ellenton, The Mall at University Town Centre, local shops within walking distance, golf courses and I75 allowing easy access to the Gulf coast.

January visit to Sabal Harbour
This is a beautiful property with lovely swimming pool and spa just as pictured. House was very well kept and the kitchen had every amenity. Good location, close to 275. The property manager, Martin, was very responsive. We had trouble heating the spa (a simple fix) and he appeared at the house within 90 minutes of emailing him. Highly recommend this house and would definitely stay again.
Bob to the rescue!
We had to evacuate from the East Coast due to “Dorian” & Bob was great!! He responded quickly to all my messages & made what could have been a really stressful time a lot easier!
The house is great really spacious with a west facing pool so plenty of evening sun, the location is also good for getting to Anna Maria & Sarasota
Thanks for all your help Bob!
Great pool. Love the house size. Took our grandchildren and all had a bed and plenty of space. Updated TVs from last year. Rest of house could use some updating though. Sliding door leading to pool is very hard to open. Love having door to one of the bathrooms leading out to pool. So easy to come in from pool to use bathroom or take a shower. House convenient to many stores and restaurants.
Great villa and very enjoyable stay
The villa was big, comfortable and had everything you need for a wonderful holiday.
We have stayed in a few villas in Bradenton and this was the best yet. It was spotlessly clean on arrival, and was very well equipped with everything you need without being cluttered.
The layout was great with the master on side of the house and 3 bedrooms and a large bathroom on the other. This bathroom led straight out to the pool area which was perfect, meaning our children didn’t have to go through the house if they needed to use the bathroom!
The pool itself was large, warm and again the pool area spotless. We spent most of our time there and thoroughly enjoyed the outlook over the lake, watching birds, fish and the alligators.
Sabal Harbour has a communal pool which we went to a couple of times and that was nice too.
The beaches were a 45min drive but we know the area so that wasn’t a problem for us. We preferred the pool anyway.
All in all, a great villa which was perfect for all of us. Our age range was 9 to 77 and everyone loved it.
Will be sure to return if staying in Bradenton again.
Really glad to hear you enjoyed your stay, please feel free to get in touch if you are in the area again.

6 weeks in Bradenton
We thoroughly enjoyed our winter vacation in your Bradenton home. It was very spacious and easy to live in. The best feature was your delightful pool and hot tub. We had sun all day and could watch sunset from inside the house or even while in the pool.
There were only a couple plastic glasses besides a few plastic wine glasses. Baking pans really need replacing. Aside from those simple things, everything was great. We would love to stay again!
Thanks Craig, delighted that you and your family enjoyed your vacation.
We truly enjoyed our stay here. It is a beautiful house and very spacious. It is a little drive to the beaches but a great peaceful area.
It is perfectly placed for trips to the beaches of Longboat Key and Anna Maria Island – just 20 minutes away.
Local amenities include a new retail development at the road end with Publix, 24hr Walmart and Aldi within walking distance, several golf courses including championship standard, The Mall at University Town Centre with bars and restaurants - all less than 10 minutes away. Ellenton Designer factory outlets are also 15 mins away with names like Ralph Lauren, Under Armour, Saks on 5th Ave, Nike, Hillfigger, etc. Tampa’s airport and attractions are approximately 45 minutes drive.
Sabal Harbour is a quiet family oriented community where there is no noise after 10pm.
