Exceeded all expectations
we (two families, 3 persons each) had a wonderful time in Oakley Place from 31 March to 14 April 2012. It is a nice quiet place to enjoy your holidays. Four bedrooms, living room, dining room, two bathrooms, toilette, and kitchen are equipped in elegant style with much attention to the detail. Washing machine, tumble dryer, computer, telephone and navigation system are at your disposal. From the first moment you enter this magnificent villa you feel like being at home as it does not leave any wishes open.
The location of the Villa is the ideal starting point for different kind of activities. In only 30 minutes you have reached the nicest beaches of St. Pete, Anna Maria Islands or Siesta Key. Enjoy a real 5 Star Shopping in the Ellenton Outlet Mall which is even in walking distance. Only the way back may get exhausting with 5 fully packed bags from Hilfiger, Converse, Bath & Body Works, Addidas, etc. in each hand ;-). In case of questions, Cathleen Mai from the house administration always was available to help. She recommended us Plato's Closet - a great shopping place to buy brands like Hollister, Abercrombie, etc. at low budget.
Many restaurants are close. We liked most the breakfast at Big L and Poppy's Place, in the evening it was wonderful to sit outside at the Waterfront at Woody`s River Roo. Food was also delicious at Red Lobster, Ruby Tuesday and Applebees. An absolute "Must" in our view is the Sandbar Restaurant at Anna Maria Islands, one of the few restaurants where you can sit outside directly at the beach. From there you can watch the sunset and food is really great. But be there in time! When you go there after 7.00 p.m. at the weekend you may wait for your table two hours.
When coming back to Florida, we now don't need to think twice where to go. Oakley Place forever!
