Hi, this section is actually about us, the OWNERS, not our Agent. We are a family of four living, studying and working in Buckinghamshire, UK. Chris, Karen (married 28 years), Tom, 23, studying an MA in Sports Journalism and Josh, 20, studying Ancient History with Archeology at Birmingham University. We get over to our house in Florida a couple of times a year as a family. Chris goes more often as he will go for a long weekend to check on the house and play golf. We have a twelve year old Westie named Zoe who is diabetic, has two new lenses in her eyes but is gorgeous and our quasi 'Little Girl'.

LuAnne Wilson, Evergreen Realty Corp. (Owner's Agent) purchased this house in 2011

Hi, this section is why we, the OWNERS, bought this house. For years we dreamt of owning a home in the USA. We previously owned a holiday home in Wiltshire, UK. When we sold this we felt the time and USA property market were right for us. Where do you start ? We knew we wanted to be in Florida but it's a big place. Close friends already owned a condominium on The Meadows and when we researched Sarasota we discovered it to be the '..unwritten cultural capital of Florida..', seven theatres, a ballet company, the Number One beach in America in Siesta Key, great restaurants, shopping, amenities. We had found our dream area. As Chris is a golfer he had always dreamt of owning a property overlooking a fairway so with The Meadows decided upon and our Realtor acting as our guide we embarked upon our search. It took about six months to complete our purchase on 29th April 2011, Royal Wedding Day. We completely gutted the house inside, decorating throughout and employed the services of a Designer to furnish the house. We also inherited a below ground spa which was a pineapple flowerbed. After much research to try and recover this we ended up filling it in and building a new spa, feature waterfall and wet deck. All our guests can see the fantastic end results. We have furnished in a true Floridian style with a few golf reminders dotted around the house and from the comments of our guests so far, we seem to have got it right. Everyone loves the house, it's amenities and situation. When Chris visits for a weekend he eats at the Deli for breakfast and lunch (they do take away coffee) and Mona Lisa for dinner, both a minutes walk away in The Meadows Shopping Village. As family we eat all over the place, especially St. Armand's Circle of an evening for dinner and a stroll. We recommend Columbia and Crab & Fin. Every time we visit the Circle, we just love it, always something new to see in the shops. We hope this short history wets your appetite to stay in our lovely home.

It's Floridian living. The weather. A local phrase is 'JADIP', 'Just Another Day In Paradise.' The view down the 17th fairway of The Meadows course. The facilities of The Meadows Shopping Village on our doorstep. The 20 minute drive to the beaches. St Armand's Circle. The restaurants and shopping. The peace and quiet of our cul-de-sac. The friendliness of our neighbours. The safety of the area.

Put this holiday home at the top of your list

There are always concerns when booking holiday accommodation online, do the photographs shown and the text convey what you will find when you arrive. The anxiety levels increase as you get nearer your holiday destination you have had a long day and a long flight and in the back of your mind you have that nagging question "what if". We arrived at Taywater Dell and found it a home from home. It was a very comfortable and spacious. After unpacking (walk in wardrobes are just the best!) we immediately felt at home.
Its location is ideal as it seems that any we wanted to go was more than 20 minutes away accept the Lucky Pelican restaurant which is 8 minutes and should not be missed.
The information supplied in the house was helpful and insightful, so eating out and shopping was easy and enjoyable. We would highly recommend the Ringling museum and house, it was outstanding and well worth a visit.
If you are looking for a fear free holiday house you should put this holiday home at the top of your list.

Expectations Exceeded!!

My husband and I both retired this year and were looking for our first, longer term rental. As soon as we pulled into the driveway and walked into the house we felt "at home". The property was very clean and had a beautiful, open-concept layout and was furnished perfectly for our needs. The screened-in pool area was great for relaxing and entertaining. The view of the 17th fairway was wonderful. The location could not have been better for us. We love to golf, and not only did we take advantage of the 2 semi-private courses in the neighbourhood, but were close to many more within a 15 minute drive. Restaurants and grocery stores were all close by and we were near enough to the beach to go several times a week. The realtor we dealt with was great. She was available if needed and provided us an excellent overview of the area. The owner has ensured the property meets all the desired comforts of home, from the furnishings to the little extras. Thank you for making our first retirement adventure exceed our expectations. We are already looking forward to going back.
Owner's Response: May we offer our sincerest thanks to our recent guests for such a wonderful review. They are very kind. Such reviews indicate that the rental we have set out to provide for our guests is meeting and surpassing expectations so we are re-assured in our desire to provide a truly Floridian style home for our guests. We echo their comments on the golf as we have played all three courses at The Meadows and they are exceptional but don't take our word for it, come and stay and play. We are adding to our home all the time, even the tiniest of touches such as a few more games. Where we receive a comment to add something we carefully consider it and then make a judged decision as to whether it's availability will add to all guests enjoyment of our home. We have already listened and added a few more items of equipment in the kitchen by way of example. We hope you choose to come and enjoy our home.

Owner's Response: We would like to offer our sincerest thanks to our recent Guests for such a lovely review. They are very kind. Other guests have commented on our house but not actually published these through the website Review facility. One is given below ;

"... I omitted to make any entry in the Owner's guest book. Perhaps you could convey to them our appreciation of their lovely home. We could not have asked for more. Every thing we could have asked for was at our fingertips and we would hope to return as soon as possible. Also our thanks to you LuAnne for making the whole rental process as easy as pie. See you soon, God Bless, The ******** family."

We seem to be doing things right.
