Set in a quiet private residential community with lush tropical landscaping and lakes offering biking and walking in scenic nature trails with Oscar Scherer State Park and the Legacy Trail just four minutes away. This beautiful air conditioned 3 bedroom 3 bathroom home has a superb floor plan in that each bedroom with own bathroom are located separately in the villa affording total privacy. It is furnished to a high standard and includes WiFi. There is a south facing private heated pool backing onto a preserve. The lanai also affords total privacy with six sun loungers and a large barbecue and is an ideal setting for alfresco dining and soaking up the Florida sun. There is also a large heated communal pool which is very under utilized and excellent for some serious swimming! The state of the art YMCA which has an Olympic size pool is five minutes drive from us and offers weekly and monthly membership rates for visitors.

My husband just retired and we were looking for a place on short notice. We were so lucky to find Breda and PJ's villa as our first experience! The house and pool are fabulous. The quiet neighborhood and surroundings are beautiful and we were completely relaxed during our 3 week stay. The local restaurants were delightful and we visited Siesta Key Beach. Most days were spent lounging by the pool and just relishing in the beautiful weather! I am grateful to Breda and PJ for helping to make Bob's first retirement vacation perfect!
We had such an amazing time in Sarasota! Breda + PJ were fantastic from start to finish - very quick with replying to emails and sending additional details as we got closer to traveling. The home is beautiful. This was a family vacation for us and we all agreed that it was the first time the accommodations were actually BETTER than the photos! The home is spotless and very well appointed. Fully equipped kitchen, very comfortable beds, nice updated bathrooms. The private pool was a very fun bonus! We are absolutely planning to return to the villa again.
We usually go to Florida once a year, and stay in very good villas. I never thought our previous experiences could be topped, but Breda and PJ managed it. Not only is the villa perfectly laid out and has all the amenities one could ask for, it is also perfectly located. Easy access to Sarasota Main Street with all of it's shops and restaurants, easy access (5 min) to beach, and lots of restaurants nearby if you don't want to drive to Main Street. We stayed for 3 weeks, but wish we could stay longer. Definitely will return. Thank you Breda and PJ for your hospitality.
My family and I couldn't be happier with the choice to stay at the villa in Osprey.
Everything was perfect - the house was extremely nice, well furnished and comfortable, the location was great inside a quiet neighborhood and the overall experience was just a 10 out of 10! We were 5 adults, coming to the area to celebrate my grandfather's 90th birthday, and we had more than enough space for sleeping and relaxing at the villa.
Aside from the physical aspects of the house, email correspondence with Breda was very easy, she always writes back promptly and was able to quickly answer all of my questions before and during the stay, which I really appreciated.
We can't stop talking about how wonderful the stay was and I definitely hope we'll be back again in the future!
This beautiful house was perfect for our vacation. It's in a quiet neighborhood and had everything that we needed. The owners were very helpful and friendly. I couldn't have had a better week. They left a nice welcome card along with a bottle of wine. My only regret is that I didn't have enough time to stay longer. I loved our stay and plan to stay again soon. Thank you Breda and Patrick.

The owners Breda and Patrick very kindly let us book for 8 days instead of their two week minimum. The villa is in an upmarket area which is very quiet (neighbours did not appear much) and you do need a car.
The villa has everything for indoor and outdoor loving, including pool toys, bicycles (long straight and flat cycleway nearby), deck chairs with a parasol for the beach, a few sets of golf clubs and tennis racquets. The villa a/c works well.
The kitchen has all the mod cons and the three bedrooms all have either a huge ensuite or a bathroom adjacent.
The pictures on the advert are accurate but there are no canoes/kayaks/boats in the villa as advertised.
The wifi works well and we used it to communicate with Breda who help us organise a repair to the pool area screens that needed some work during our stay,
The pool area is spacious and well screened, the water at a nice temperature and is cleaned weekly. There is a massive gas bbq (we did not use it - too hot outside)
There are plenty of places to eat if you do not wish to cook, all are around a 10 minute drive away along HWY41 or at the nearby beaches (we liked Nokomis beach with Pops Grill and Bentleys icecream). There are two big supermarkets, also 10 - 15 minutes away by car. This area (Tampa/Osprey) is well documented in Tripadvisor
There are loads of activities from parasailing, jetskiing and others at the Siesta beach area (seaside a bit smelly when we went) , we did a few of these and loved them although not cheap in my view. Further away are Busch Gardens and Hillsborough river (90 mins by car) where you can canoe/kayak unsupervised in a swamp and see the gators up close!
My wife (who usually picks the places we stay at) was impressed at my choice this time. That is praise enough for me!
Situated in a premier convenient location bordering Oscar Scherer Park which has sixteen miles of nature reserve fishing boating cycling walking bird watching and many other activities. Located minutes drive from Casey Key Nomomis Beach and Siesta Beach also five minutes from the Legacy Trial.. Shopping malls Publix Walmart are also minutes drive away along with many restaurants from fine dining to casual on Tamiami Trial.
