Overview

Bradenton Villa Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, sleeps 6

Little Palms Villa is situated on the smart residential villa community of Sabal Harbour. It is positioned at the head of a lovely lake with a south facing aspect to the rear thus benefiting from the sun on the pool for most of the day.

Sabal Harbour has a large community pool with tennis, volleyball and basketball courts. The villa itself is comfortably furnished with two living areas, a fully equipped kitchen and three separate dining areas. We have new furniture throughout. The home is fully air conditioned along with ceiling fans to assist cooling. There is an H.D. (connected) Digital TV with Bose Sound. 2 DVD,s, stereo system and broadband internet connections are provided.

Free phone calls to US / Canada. The pool is heated and under a Lanai with great views of the lake and its wildlife. The Villa just 25 mins from the finest white sand beaches of the Gulf Coast and 30 mins to the stylish coastal city of Sarasota. The wonderful Siesta, Longboat and Lido Keys surround Sarasota.

Golfers Paradise.: Our villa is within walking distance of Peridia Golf and Country Club. This is a fine championship course and has an excellent restaurant serving lunch and dinner daily. 5 minutes from the famous Tara Golf and Country club. We are surrounded by many further courses within a 30 minute drive. Local Golf section on our own website, please click lower down.

Beach life.: Our villa is within an easy drive of the west coast Florida beaches including this years 'Best Beach in the USA' winner, Crescent Beach at Siesta Key. Further North, Anna Maria Island has three further beaches that run into each other and is considered an island paradise with its charming small collections of shops and eateries, quiet residential roads and quaint 'low rise' homes.

Lido Key Beach and its nature reserve close to St Armands Circle are well worth a visit and Longboat Key, although consisting of more hotels and expensive homes than the other keys still has wonderful beach areas, great restaurants and a number of fine golf clubs to visit.

Turtle Beach is the place to visit for good days on the sand searching for unusual shells and has a highly rated restaurant on the Intra-coastal side of the Island.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hello Pauline and Howard,



We just wanted to say that we had a great couple of weeks staying in your villa.

The two weeks just flew by far too quickly.

We spent many days on the beaches from Siesta Keys along to Anna Maria Island and, on a couple of occasions, watched the sunset while sipping cocktails and having a meal at 'The Sandbar'.



We also had friends staying in two other villas in Sabal Harbour and wanted you to know that we thought your villa was far more homely than either of theirs.



We wouldn't hesitate to recommend you to any friends or associates.



Many thanks,

Kind Regards,



Carol and Nigel.

We recently stayed at Little Palms Villa and had a
wonderful time. The home is beautiful as well as
clean and comfortable. This was the first time that
we have rented a home for an entire month and the
owners couldn't have been nicer or more
accomodating. We would not hesitate staying there
again next year. If you are not sure about the area,
you will find that it is just a short drive to most
everything.

Great rental for the price!

  • 4 of 5
The owners were really nice to work with. The management was very fast to respond to any issues that we had. Every effort has been made to make this villa a home. Our grandchildren visited for a week that was rather rainy but we still found a lot to do. We found many wonderful restaurants in the area at reasonable prices (Leroy Selmons, Carmens Italian, Edelweis German, Recipe Box, Peaches etc). Overall, this is not a palace but it is a very comfortable home that is fairly well equipped.

Owner's Response: Hello Louise,

Thank you for your review. We are glad that you enjoyed your stay at our villa.
You have mentioned a couple of local restaurants that we have not tried yet and we are glad that 'The Recipe Box' is still going strong as their breakfasts are our favourite.
Our best to you all.

Howard and Pauline.

Little Palms Villa... The perfect vacation villa!

  • 5 of 5
It was such a pleasure to stay in Little Palms Villa. The process of booking your villa was very smooth. The home was immaculate when we checked in. We loved using a combination lock rather than a "key" to enter the villa. The kitchen was well stocked with every imaginable gadget. The Bose surround sound added a nice touch when we were "chilling" in front of the TV. It pains me to say this, but the bed in the master bedroom is more comfortable than our own! Sabal Harbor was perfect for our vacation, only 15 minutes from the beach, shopping and great restaurants. Thank you for making our vacation a great one. Debi from Atlanta.

A Wonderful Stay in Little Palms Villa

  • 5 of 5
We have just spent three months in Little Palms Villa and enjoyed it so much, that we have booked to return again next year. The villa is very well equipped and comfortable and the patio and pool area became an extension of the family room for us, where we enjoyed many hours relaxing and watching the wild life in and around the lake and the lovely sunsets - and even some storm clouds rolling by. The villa is easily accessible from the Sarasota airport and the interstates and is very central to attractions in the area, including theatres, restaurants, shopping and, of course, the beach. We have been spending the winters in Florida for the past 20+ years, both as owners and as renters and Little Palms Villa is one of the best we have stayed in. We are looking forward to our return next January.

Owner's Response: Hello Jo-Ann and John.
Thank you so much for your kind words.It means a great deal to us that you enjoyed your time at our villa.
There is so much to do in the area around our Florida home and we know from previous correspondence with you that you both spent a good deal of time exploring the area and enjoying the local beaches. We are looking forward to our next visit later in the year to make further improvements to the villa and do hope you find these to your liking when you return in 2013.

Best Regards,
Howard and Pauline.

Fabulous villa and fantastic holiday

  • 5 of 5
Hi Howard and Pauline,

Just wanted to say thanks for letting us stay in your lovely Florida home. As returning guests we were pleased to see that the villa was even better than we remembered. It is very spacious and comfortable, spotlessly clean and well maintained, and has everything you could possibly need for a relaxing stay. The tv and bose sound system are great and we particularly loved the pool and outside dining area. It's a lovely place to sit with a coffee in the morning, or a glass (or two) of wine in the evening - just watching the wildlife around the lake.

We thought the villa was an ideal base from which to explore the Gulf Coast beaches and surrounding areas. We particularly loved Anna Maria Island. Watching dolphins from the beach at Bean Point will be one of my happiest memories and we can recommend 'Feeling Swell' for the best burger on the island.

We had a fantastic holiday. We can't wait to go back and we will definitely choose Little Palms Villa for our next visit.

Owner's Response: Hi Anne and Steve,

Thank you for your kind words, it was great to have you both stay at the villa again.
You must know the area very well by now, I remember how much you enjoy visiting Anna Maria Island and it is good to know that the Dolphins showed up again for you this year.

It is always nice to hear that the effort we put in to improving the decor and furnishings each year is appreciated, and we thoroughly enjoy making our home as comfortable as possible for our guests.

I look forward to hearing from you if you would like to spend some time on Sabal Harbour again in the future.

Our best wishes,
Pauline and Howard.

Wonderful Villa in the sunshine.

  • 5 of 5
Dear Howard and Pauline,
We booked your wonderful villa for our honeymoon and were not disappointed. We left the airport in lovely sunshine and arrived at the villa to find a very comfortable, attractive and spacious home waiting for us. Every convenience is thought of, from the well appointed kitchen, to the very useful information folder and brochures. The view of the pool and the lake beyond is captivating, we watched the birds and other wildlife using it regularly. We found all the instructions easy to follow, the nearby shops and supermarkets were very good and the whole area made us want to come back to explore some more. We will definately book 'Little Palms Villa' for our next stay as soon as we can.
