We travelled to Sarasota and the Bradenton area over 10 years ago and kept coming back as we could find no other place quite like it. As a family of four, with young children, we needed a holiday home that had something for everyone. We certainly found it here. Rosedale is a quiet and safe gated golf and tennis community and the villa is directly on the golf course although very private. The location is great, just off the I75, so there is quick and easy access either North or South, to downtown Sarasota for great shopping, restaurants and bars, museums and theatre, and North to the beautiful beaches of Anna Maria Island. Nearby there is the lovely community of Lakewood Ranch with another superb golf and tennis facilities open to the publi. Main Street is great for shopping and bars and restaurants. There is so much to see and do that we always run out of time trying to fit everything in, but it's so nice to be able to come back to the peace and tranquility that this villa has to offer.
Our villa really is home from home. From the moment you enter you will feel immediately relaxed and at ease. With it's peaceful location overlooking the golf course and with lake view you can choose to do as much or as little as you like. Having visited many villas in the past we understand the frustrations that parents have when holidaying so we have ensured that the villa is totally child friendly. Our days are packed with playing golf, lots of tennis, visiting theme parks in Tampa and day trips to Orlando. With beaches closeby, we often spend the morning on the beach, lunch at St Armands Circle and a lazy afternoon by the pool. Friends and family love to come and visit, especially grandparents who are keen golfers, as there are so many different golf courses nearby such as Tara, Peridia and University Park, which are all open to the public. For keen golfers you'll be spoilt for choice!
