Be the first to stay in this beautiful condo which was newly purchased in July of 2013. Master br has king bed and 40' led smart tv. Guest br has queen canopy bed with cozy tropical ambience. Two full baths with shower/tub combo and very large Master shower for your convenience. Open concept greets you as you walk the hall to the living area with great visual appeal as you are taken in by the beautiful view of water and greenery of the manicured golf course. Kitchen has its own dinette with fabulous views. State of the art appliances, granite surfaces, and beautiful dining area await you. Great room has 50' Samsung tv with enhanced HD viewing. Wifi is available with printer, scanner, copier in the den. Washer and dryer are full sized and conveniently located. The unit includes a one car garage just out the door of the large relaxing veranda with comfortable lounging chairs. Rear lanai overlooks beautiful lake and palm lined golf course and you will see beautiful birds and wildlife daily. Maybe 'Herbie' the gator will even show as he often does in the evening. The grounds including the resort style clubhouse with restaurant and bar are fabulous. Exercise to your hearts content in the 3500 ft. wellness facility or play tennis on the 8 lighted courts with tennis pro-shop. For golfers, a $160 transfer fee gets you all the privileges of the owner and you only pay cart fees when you golf. River Strand has reciprocal golf privileges with all the top golf resorts in the area. Great pool area near clubhouse with tiki bar to cool off after a 'tough' day on the course or courts. You will have a one minute walk to the beautiful neighborhood pool which is quiet, peaceful and never crowded. For those who forget their racquets or bikes, new equipment for tennis or biking will be found in the garage for your sporting pleasure! Manatee state park is only 5 miles down the road and offers fresh water fishing and sightseeing. The nearest beach is on quaint Anna Maria Island which is easily accessed. Just turn out of the resort on highway 64 and head west. In twenty minutes put on the brakes or the beatiful turqouise gulf waters will welcome you. We fell in love with this place because everything is here or nearby. Now the only thing missing is you...
My wife and I live and continue to work in the Indianapolis area and wish we could be at River Strand full time. Currently, our loss may be your gain if you are looking for a place that may tempt you to want to live there full time also. My wife works as an audiologist for an Indianapolis otologist/surgeon, and I am a consulting psychologist for two Indianapolis area hospitals. Our son is currently a senior at Purdue University studying aeronautical engineering. His brother is an 11 year old Lab named Kobe (named after my son's favorite basketball player). We are confident that you will love this place nearly as much as we do.
When my wife and I were first married we stumbled onto Sarasota/Bradenton and were enthralled with the beauty and culture that abounds throughout the area. Being young and impressionable we fell in love with Lido Key and St. Armands and spent wonderful days and nights at the Lime Tree Inn listening to the steel band as the sound of the ocean waves were carried into our moonlit room by the cool ocean breeze. Since then, we knew that someday we would come back to stay and live the stress free resort life that only River Strand can offer.
Before purchasing at River Strand we had researched beautiful properties near Orlando, St. Augustine, and Naples, but none had the combination of beauty, ease of travel, best golf course in the area, and professional tennis facilities so fine that European parents bring their budding tennis stars here for training.
Riverstrand is a beautiful and state of the art golf and tennis resort/community located just of I-75 on the beautiful Manatee River near Bradenton Florida. Sarasota, St. Pete, and Tampa airports are all within 30-45 minute drive with easy access. Perfect location near major outlet shopping, beaches, Manatee state park, with over twenty other golf resorts with reciprocal privileges with Riverstrand members. New York Yankee spring training facility is nearby and it is only 1.5 hour drive to Disney. Sarasota with its opera, symphony, ballet and live theater are only 20 minutes down I-75. St. Armands with its shopping and dining are a must do in Sarasota. The grounds of Riverstrand and surrounding golf communities are spectacular and perfectly groomed. Just driving through the community is a pleasure of relaxing scenery. Trails for jogging, cycling, and walking abound. This is the perfect location that is at once peaceful and serene but near all the attractions that make vacations enjoyable.
