Our property is owned by two retired couples who have lived in North Norfolk for 35 years but who love to spend time in our Florida home during the winter months.

John & Freda purchased this villa in 2005

We are proud of our luxury villa set in beautiful surroundings overlooking a lake within a small gated community. As we spend many months here each year ourselves we are able to keep it in tip-top condition. A typical guest comment is that this villa is 'by far the best they have stayed in' and that ours is 'top of the list'.

We chose to buy here because of its proximity to Sarasota and all that this city has to offer. It has wonderful beaches, shopping malls, including the new University Town Centre, a multitude of restaurants as well as easy access to many cultural facilities such as cinemas, theatres, the opera house, and concert halls. It is a golfers paradise with courses to suit all abilities nearby. Other sporting facilities include boating/sailing or kayaking on the bay, rowing at the new International Rowing Centre or even watching polo at Lakewood Ranch.

We fell in love with this villa when we opened the front door and saw uninterrupted views to the pool area and the sparkling lake and wildlife beyond. There is a feeling of spaciousness and light throughout the villa that makes for a relaxing stay.

It really is a 5 star luxury villa

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Oct 20, 2013
  • Stayed: Sep 2013
The details about this villa are absolutely right and when we arrived at the villa it certainly had the WOW factor, a beautifully furnished villa in a wonderful area with
the added luxury of top quality furniture and fittings and instructions and information to make our stay fantastic.
We have stayed in villas many times in Florida, but this was by far the best villa we had rented in this area which was situated between Bradenton and Sarasota and made it easy to get to all the attractions such as Anna Maria Island, Holmes Beach, state parks and shopping outlets etc.
But if you didn't want to travel far it was just lovely to sit round the pool with the comfortable sunbeds and chairs and listen to the amazing wildlife from the lake
where the monkey sounds made by the frogs made you feel you were sitting in a jungle area, we ate outside every evening so we could just listen to them.
The sunrises were absolutely fantastic and we have loads of photos watching the
sun rise with the sky going from grey to a wonderful red, a photo of which I am going to use on my screensaver.
The only downside was that the holiday went all too quickly and we had to leave
all that luxury behind, but we are planning to come back in the not too distant future
Owner's Response: Thank you so much Helen for taking the time to write such a positive review about our villa. As always, we are delighted to receive feedback from our guests as we value all of their comments. We are so pleased that you enjoyed exploring all that this area has to offer as well as taking time to relax around the pool and observe the wild life.
We look forward to welcoming you back to Mandalay very soon.

First class

We had a fabulous time on holiday at Mandalay in no small part down to the excellence of the villa. The quality of the decor and fittings was matched by the tremendous pool and and the great views over the lake. The sunrises over the lake were a joy to behold (or so i'm told). One thing that struck us in comparison to other villas we have stayed in was the high standard to which it was equipped. kitchen utensils, crockery, cutlery, glassware, cleaning equipment and towels were all plentiful and of high quality. This is a small thing but it makes a huge difference.

The boys loved the pool area and again I would say the pool is generous in comparison to others. The beach equipment(cool boxes, umbrella, chairs etc.) was also very useful. The kitchen and living spaces were excellent. It's very nice to walk through the front door to a view of the lake.

The local supermarkets were only a short drive away. When the new one is opened nearby that will be perfect.

We had great times visiting the beaches of Sarasota and Bradenton, the villa being ideally placed sort of midway between the two. We particularly liked North Lido but all are great. We rented a boat from Longboat Key which was a fabulous day. The intra-coastal waterway is a great way to see things from a different perspective. Another great day out was Tampa Speed Boat Adventures in St. Petes.

All in all we are sure you would be hard pressed to find a better property. I'm not sure you would. It is certainly the best that we have stayed in.
Owner's Response: Wow - thank you very much Mike, for such a positive and comprehensive review of our villa. We are delighted that you had such an enjoyable holiday and that you really enjoyed the facilities that we offer. The beaches of Sarasota and Bradenton are wonderful and taking a boat out for a day to explore the Intra-Coastal Waterway is one of our favourite activities too.
We do hope that you return to Mandalay in the not too distant future.

Truly a home away from home!

Let me start by saying we already wanna come back! This house exceeded our expectations. Every need was met above and beyond measure. It was well kept and clean. The pool was inviting and safe for children. The location was perfect! Not too far from the beaches yet tucked away in a safe quiet gated community. The birds and wildlife were very interesting and nice to watch! John & Freda made booking and arriving very easy. My family and usually go to St Martin every year and we have to say this is now our home away from home in the states! With great appreciation, thank you for sharing your home with us!
Owner's Response: Many thanks Towanna, for your kind, appreciative words about our home. We have worked hard to establish a first-rate holiday villa so it is reassuring to know that we have got most things right! It is also good to know that you found the booking and arrival process easy so that your holiday could get off to a relaxing start.

We look forward to welcoming you back to Mandalay in the future.
Kind regards
John & Freda

This place was wonderful and exceeded our expectations! Nevertheless, the owners have done an awesome job in making it a home away from home. Every need we had was met above and beyond! It was the perfect location. I personally loved every detail about the house. It was very clean and well kept. I did not want to leave. I am used to staying in St Marten and I have to say this is now my home away from home in the states! Thank you John & Freda for sharing your home with us!
Owner's Response: Many thanks for your kind words. It gives us great pleasure to know that the villa exceeded your expectations and that you had a wonderful stay. We hope to be able to welcome you back to our home in the future.
Kind regards
