Robert and Sharon Campbell purchased this villa in 2000
We love Florida for it's sunshine, friendly people and happy child hood memories. After much deliberation we decided to look for a place in the sun. Thankfully we chose Sarasota as our home from home and want our guests to enjoy living and playing in our part of Florida.
Our home is at the head of the lake and when we are sitting by our pool watching the sun set and rise it really does make us appreciate our home even more. The ducks and turtles seem to enjoy the place as much as we do as they go about their daily business in their very own lake,
We enjoyed our vacation very much. The view of the sunrises are beautiful with the sparkling water on the lake, palm trees, and tropical plants. It is a very calm and serene setting. The house is clean, well stocked and spacious. Robert and Sharon certainly have made their home a "home away from home". It is close to Interstate 75 and easy access to the many Restaurants, Golf Courses, Spring Training Baseball Camps, UTC Mall, Ellington Outlet Mall, Anna Marie Island, Siesta Key Beach, Myakka River State Park, as well as the many other points of interest mentioned in other reviews. The house is close to a Publix Grocery Store, a Super Walmart, CVS pharmacy and a Gas Station, as well as a wonderful fresh produce stand called Deans Produce. The pool water is heated and very enjoyable with a wonderful view of the lake,palm trees, and wildlife. There are plenty of chairs around the pool, 9 deck lounge chairs plus a table with 6 chairs. The kitchen is stocked with plenty of dishes and mugs. The home's description is accurate but the pictures do not do it justice. Robert and Sharon are wonderful to work with and I can highly recommend this home. We hope to return. Thanks Robert and Sharon for all that you did to make our vacation special.
I would really love to say that our stay in the villa was a home from home, but to do so would not be appropriate as sadly our home does not have five double bedrooms or sadly a huge pool! This really is a gorgeous villa to spend your holiday in. The owners have ensured that every comfort is made available for their guests. A master bedroom which was without doube the largest room we have ever seen a bed in and a bathroom to match. Another bedroom en-suite, with three further double bedrooms and an additional bathroom. Excellent fully screened pool area and for those who prefer to be out of the sun a separate area complete with outside fan. Excellent position at the top of the lake on a lovely residiential development with supermarkets and cinemas a very short distance away, not to mention the new UTC Mall just about to open. We enjoyed every minute of our stay and without question this villa would be our choice to stay in again when we return to this lovely area of Florida.
We came back in January from a wonderful holiday at this home. We have stayed in some homes in Florida over the years but without a doubt this has been the nicest and cleanest. We arrived early evening and opened the door, we were amazed at the sheer size of the place, the photo’s don’t do your home justice! We dumped our cases and had a look around. The cupboards were stocked with pans, utensils crockery etc and also made good use of the top loader and dryer. The pool was warm and we enjoyed the sun throughout the day and if it got too hot we could go in doors and cool down. This house is in a great location with Wal-Mart and Publix nearby, there is a gas station just down the road as well as a pharmacy. We travelled to Disney and back throughout our stay and had a great time at the beaches, restaurants and malls. The neighbourhood is friendly and well kept. In general we can all recommend this home. The place is very clean and well maintained, it’s quiet and we are already looking in to our holiday next year! Thank you Sharon and Rob, we will be in touch.

Four girlfriends from Michigan just spent 10 days in this home. The home is very clean, well decorated, great location, fabulous pool area, good neighborhood, and spacious enough for a family. The home is close to Anna Maria island, Longboat Key and Sarasota with all the great restaurants they have to offer. The on-line pictures of the home don't do it justice. It's bright and decorated appropriately with nautical/beach and casual comfort. The owners were the best I've ever had the pleasure/opportunity to work with. They responded quickly during the reservation process and personally called during our visit to make sure we were happy. The local property manager was on hand to personally hand us the "key" to the home and was quick to respond to our only question. Our only regret is that we couldn't stay longer. But we will be happy to stay in this lovely home again.
We spent 14 days(21 dec - 3 jan) in this spacious and lovely house with my family and friends (9 persons) without any serious issue. The owners are very friendly. I jus read the previous comment and I can say that when we arrived all was in perfect conditions. The weak point of the villa concern the table (too small) and chairs(not enough) located in the lanai which are not convenient for more 6 peoples, and the garage door without remote control. Except this details I recommend this villa.
Having rented numerous other villas we found this one to of a very poor standard, the property is in need of a lot of TLC, the front door was filthy, not exactly a welcoming sight, the pool surround was very grubby and needed a good jet wash plus deweeding, there were 9 in our party which gave us some issues, only 5 sunbeds, not enough outside chairs to all sit outside when having a bar-b-q, rear door to pool covered in rust, outside fan and main room fan filthy, had to purchase extra mugs as there was not enough to cater for everyone. Sorry but if your going to advertise a property then at least make sure its presentable and caters for the advertised numbers in every respect.
Unfortunately this did spoil our two weeks.
