We have always loved the Florida Gulf Coast and Bradenton is the ideal place to be; close to beautiful white sandy beaches, museums,shops,concert halls and magical gardens but well situated for taking the grandchildren to Disney.
And of course lots and lots of golf - over 50 fantastic courses close by.
Mary Coulson purchased this villa in 2004
Sabal Harbour is a lovely quiet and secure community, perfect for a family holiday or couples who want to relax. Close to several beautiful beaches but also near enough to the I-75 to make travelling further afield easy.
There are lots of restaurants and shops within easy reach.
This is a family owned villa containing everything you need to make your vacation really special and we would like to offer the opportunity to others to enjoy this beautiful home.
It is managed by a dedicated management team who are on hand to help or give advice should you need it.
We love holidaying there so much that we have bought a second larger 5 bedroom villa (listing 162187) to enable us to take the whole family.
We had a great vacation and the weather was perfect. Your house was even better than the photos represented and we didn't want to leave. The girls loved the pool.
Verg good access for a wheelchair user. The master suite has a walk-in, sit-in shower. The 25 metre community pool is 300 metres from the door and was about 85° at 7 am.
Sabal Harbour is an excellent location to explore the Gulf Cost and Runabout Villa the ideal villa. As others have said the descriptions don't do it justice and Mary the owner goes the 'extra mile' to ensure you have all there is to know about what to do during your stay. The villa is extremely clean and well maintained in a quiet location.
Located minutes off the I75, it was well placed for some of the World's loveliest beaches and within easy reach of Tampa & Sarasota. The Supermarkets and restaurants are minutes away and Outlet shopping 15 minutes.
Our daughter & partner came with us both Theme Park fans and they haven't stopped talking about the holiday and never once asked to go to Busch Gardens.
We went with a list of things to do and only managed about half, so we now have a good excuse to revisit Runabout Villa soon to do the rest.
We spent 3 weeks relaxing in this well appointed, clean and comfortable villa. The swimming pool and lanai were an added bonus to complement the villa's facilities. Although we did not use the community area it appeared well maintained and no doubt was an added attraction during the summer months.
We usually holiday nearby so were familiar with the area and the local attractions (eg. shopping: museums: beaches). However, the many restaurants / shops nearby (University Blvd) were well visited!
Strongly recommended for a family holiday .. at any time of the year!
We stayed is the lovely villa for 6 nights at the beginning of October 2015 while we did some sightseeing in the area. it was very comfortable with eveything we needed including beach towel and chairs. We managed to fit in Anna Maria Island, Bradenton Beach and Longboat Key. We had a day in Sarasota and Siesta Key; also Madeira Beach and Treasure Island. Villa is ideally located for getting out and about to the beautiful beaches but also some great shopping at Ellenton and University Parkway.
Great communication with Mary, the owner; will definitely return if looking to go back.
My family was fortunate to stay in the Runabout Villa. It was just as described and even more inviting than the photos represent. The home is in a very clean, quiet, and safe neighborhood that was close to numerous grocery stores and restaurants. The kids enjoyed the crystal clear pool and the week flew by. Lastly, the owner was great to communicate with and very sweet. Thank you, Mary.
Upon arrival we showed up to a very nice and well kept house, the house is located just minutes away from pretty much everything. Beaches,great food,state parks and many other things. Very relaxing neighborhood. Just a great place to stay all around. Thanks.
