About The Owner

We live on the South Coast of England close to Poole Harbour (the second largest natural harbour in the world after Sydney, Australia). I own a Mortgage and Insurance business and my husband runs a Construction business. We love our home - but we love to travel to other beautiful places too!

The Owner purchased this condo in 2009

Why The Owner chose Cortez

Between us we have travelled most of the world, but this little bit of Florida offers it all! We have been coming here for more than 20 years and just keep coming back! Some days we love to just chill out and go shell hunting on the beautiful beaches, and enjoy the dolphins, birds and manatees. Other times we like to play golf or tennis - and what a choice we have! When we feel like some culture we head for the historic Ringling Museum or Gamble Plantation etc. We enjoy the shows at Van Wezel, Asolo, Bradenton Players etc! We can eat fabulous dinners or laid back Floridian fair. And when a bit of shopping is on the list - there are plenty of places to satisfy!

What makes this condo unique

It is just so easy and central to everything we need and love! If you decide you don't want to drive you can walk to the movies or to dine! And for the essentials Walmart is very close too! All the buildings in the Condominium are only 2 storey's, set in beautiful landscaped gardens with ducks and turtles on the lake.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We spent a few weeks at Bay Pointe and from the outset knew it would be perfect. Debbie was so helpful and the description and photos were spot on. The condo is just lovely, the decor very Floridian and the whole place spotless with everything you could need.The temperature was in the 90s every day and the occasional afternoon thunderstorm did nothing to spoil our enjoyment. The pool was spacious and we had it virtually to ourselves the whole fortnight. There are shops within walking distance and so much to see in the surrounding area that 2 weeks are really not enough. We highly recommend Eat Here as one of the many excellent restaurants on and around Anna Maria Island which is only minutes away and breakfast on the Rod and Reel Pier is a must! Debbie left us an excellent map showing us where to find manatees, just a short drive away, there must have been nearly a dozen when we went there. A truly magical place - we can't wait to return!

Paradise in Bradenton, FL!

  • 5 of 5
We loved our 2 month stay in Debbie & Alan's beautiful 2nd floor condo. The listing description & photos were exactly what we saw when we walked in the door. It was very clean and the unit was decorated in a cozy, beach theme. Debbie was wonderful to work with from the moment we booked until the day we left. She called to follow up with us to see how things were going. Soon we were referring to the unit as our home. Wonderful restaurants and shopping just down the road. We loved the pool area. If you are golfers, there are courses everywhere! Loved the beach only 10 minutes away. Debbie had a great book put together with recommendations. Don't let this Paradise unit slip away. Thank you so much for a wonderful stay, Debbie & Alan!

Traveling physical therapist

  • 5 of 5
As a traveling physical therapist I had the opportunity to stay in this lovely condo for 2 months while working a contract in Bradenton. The photos show exactly what you get, a clean and very nicely decorated place to stay with everything you need! The location is great, just a short drive to Anna Maria Island with very beautiful beaches. Debbie was very helpful with any questions/concerns I had and always responded immediately. I highly recommend this condo for any traveling need!

Our home away from home

  • 5 of 5
After a very long and weary drive we arrived to find a beautiful home awaiting us. It was spotless, inviting and homey. The first few days we referred it as ``the condo but after that it was `home`!
The master bedroom is lovely and the bed is a dream. Like sleeping on a cloud. Had some of the best sleeps of my life on that bed.
The location is conducive to shopping and great dining. One left turn and a short drive down Cortez Road and you`re at the beach. One never tires of walks in the sand and spectacular sunsets.
Debbie is very helpful and accommodating. We appreciated the book of suggestions on things to do and see as well as the books available to help identify all the wonderful birds and little critters that call Florida home.
The only problem with our stay is that it wasn`t long enough!

We spent a wonderful month at this property. It was everything that it claimed to be and more. The owners could not have been more helpful and repairs and maintenance were carried out quickly and efficiently. We are happy to recommend it to others seeking to escape the winter for the glorious sunshine of Florida.

Christmas on the Beach

  • 4 of 5
Bay Pointe is set in a very pleasant area close to shops & restaurants.
Best of all is the simple short trip down to Anna Maria & Longboat Key beaches which are a true delight.
The condo is big enough for 4 adults and there is a swimming pool less than 50 yards from the front door.
