"This is our fourth year vacationing in the Mansion. We use the home away, vrbo sites to look for properties that suit our family of 12. Sincerely, there is not another property in this area or even close surrounding areas, that come near to the quality of home or the price. (Other than Carol's other properties in Bradenton!) Carol is very fair and it is so easy to know that she aims to help your vacation be like home. There are tons of dishes, pans, plates, silverware~all you need for preparing meals, as if you were in your own kitchen. Plenty of quality towels, bedding, beach towels, blankets. A working computer, with wifi, a printer with ink and even paper! The pool was literally so warm it was like walking into a bathtub. A sparkling clean hot tub. All types of restaurants, Wal-mart, and similar types of stores are within minutes of driving. Even the number 1 rated beach in America (Siesta Key) is a worth it, one hour drive! There is a Saturday local farmers market that we have used and are thrilled it is available! Our family calls this our 'vacation home,' as it feels like it is our home away from home. A few minor things were mentioned, SOLELY to make Carol aware, as she would have never known unless she literally lived in the home, and she was ready on the spot within minutes to quickly and perfectly help. We all want to travel to other locations in the U.S., but she has spoiled us so much with her incredible home, that we find it difficult to pull away from Bradenton! Thank you, Carol, for such a welcoming home! We know we have found a great property when your number is entered in our cell phones! :-) We will be in touch for future vacations! Kathy"
