Great house, well laid out, nice that it had lots of basics already there, washing and cleaning stuff. Felt really like a home from home. Plenty of space, we have 5 kids ranging from 6-19 with us and everyone liked the house. Nice to see the ducks and other birds at night. Great location in a real neighbourhood, close to beaches, walkable to restaurants and 2 mins by car from Publix. We went to Busch Gardns, just over an hour away, twice. If we had time would have spent more time at beaches as they were lovely. Historic Bradenton nice too.
Clean, quiet, spacious, well-equiped. We enjoyed the house very much. Well located between Tampa and Sarasota. Great neighborhood to walk, ride bikes, enjoy the lanai. Close to many restuarants and a short drive to nice beaches. The pool was warm and clean -- we only wish it were a bit bigger. We would stay again.
Bradenton is situated on Florida's gulf coast to the North of Sarasota and just under Tampa bay. Clearwater and St Petersburg are easily accessible via the Sunshine skyway over Tampa Bay and the theme parks of Central Florida are a 90 minute drive away.
Other Activities: Situated within walking distance of the Nick Bolletieri tennis academy
