Beautifully maintained spacious villa

  • 4 of 5

We stayed for a week at this beautifully maintained villa which was perfect for relaxing after a week of theme parks.

The villa is very spacious and would easily accommodate two families (even the walk-in wardrobe was huge). The kitchen is well equipped and there are plenty of towels.

The pool is well designed with a jacuzzi at the end. The net covering provides some welcome shade and the kids were happy to spend hours in the water. There are plenty of inflatables in the garage and the pool is inspected weekly. We didn’t go to the larger pool which was open to residents but used the tennis courts with racquets from the villa.

This was the first time we had booked a villa privately. The owner was so efficient and organised that we knew we would not be let down. We lost the address of the property when driving there and the owner replied to us within 10 minutes.

Locally, we visited the beautiful Anna Maria beach, Bradenton bowling alley (prices vary so check out the sessions before hand), the local baseball stadium and Bradenton Escape Rooms, which was ideal for teenage kids. Supermarkets and restaurant chains are a five minute drive.

We would highly recommend this villa and would return to it again if we get the opportunity to return to Florida in the future.

Fantastic villa and beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in July and had 1 week with friends and 1 week alone. The villa easily accommodated a large group but also didn't overwhelm when there was just 4 of us.

Our kids are 10 and 7 and we found so much to do in the local area, from Tampa Zoo, Marina, Pirates golf, Ellenton Mall, St Armands and of course the stunning beaches. Food is in abundance so you'll never go hungry here! We also drive to Orlando a few times -swam with dolphins and experienced the water parks as well as some Disney parks.

All in all this villa provided the perfect balance between the craziness of Orlando and the tranquility of the Florida coast. The villa was immaculate and Mary and Derek (owners) were so personable. It really felt like home.

Highly recommend. We'll definitely be back!

Great house for our large party - 9 adults and 2 infants

  • 5 of 5

Great house for a large party of adults and infants. Really good for infants as all on one level and pool area well fenced off. Also well equipped with cots and high chairs. Ideally situated in Bradenton close to shops and many beaches. We were given great advice on shops, restaurants and the many nearby golf courses. Situated in a quiet residential area the house was well maintained with everything we needed and more. Owner was very helpful before our arrival and this ensured our stay started smoothly,

Would love to go back!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at this villa in Bradenton, and would love to go back. The house is spacious, clean, well maintained and comfortable, and is situated in a quiet street, and overlooks a lake at the rear . All the bedrooms are of good size with plenty of hanging space and the pictures on the website don't really do it justice. The house has all the equipment you might need on your holiday - the kitchen is well equipped and the garage has beach chairs and umbrellas. The pool is a good size and it was so relaxing to laze around it or eat at the outdoor table. There are plenty of supermarkets nearby to get groceries and it took us about 20 minutes drive to get to Anna Marie Island. If there was a tiny improvement to be made our teenagers would have liked a couple of table games in the garage, but that didn't detract from our fantastic stay. The owner was easy to deal with making the booking process simple and smooth. Our emails got prompt responses and any information we asked for was supplied immediately. We had our security deposit returned to us within two weeks of coming home. If we're ever lucky enough to return to this area we'd definitely try to stay here again.

Family Holiday

  • 4 of 5

We have just recently returned from a wonderful holiday in this beautiful villa.. It was more than we could have expected in every aspect. The master bedroom was huge, but all the bedrooms had plenty hanging space and drawer space. The oudoor pool and lanai were well equipped and were used daily by all. The beaches were amazing with pure white sand and gently shelving sea meaning safe bathing especially for the chidren. Dolphins and pelicans were lovely to see on all our visits. Hiring a car was a must, the visits to Disney were easy via highway 75 and 4. We would certaily recommend this villa to friends and family. Thankyou Mary for use of our villa.

Wonderful Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We just arrived home from a wonderful week at this beautiful villa! After much time spent trying to find the perfect place to accommodate my family and extended family (whose ages and needs are widespread) this absolutely meet all expectations and beyond! Mary was very responsive to emails and made booking a breeze! The neighborhood was peaceful and offered an abundance of wildlife that I was not expecting. My children thoroughly enjoyed all the different (large) birds that paraded thorough the yard and flew over the lake/pond, as well as the frogs and lizards they discovered around the outside of the enclosed pool area. Getting to all the area has to offer was very easy. Aldi, Publix, Walmart, CVS, all are within quick driving distance, and the beaches on Anna Maria Island are not much further. We enjoyed exploring and visiting with family that lived in the area, but I think my children would have been content to stay in the villa the entire week playing in the pool! That was vacation enough for them, and the pool was their own little world!

I also appreciated all of the extras the house has to offer, like pool and beach toys, pack and plays, bed railings and baby toys, just to name a few. The home was very spacious, and allowed all 10 of us to spread out or come together easily. It was also perfect for my elderly grandmother, who was able to make her way easily through the house due to no steps, and a walk in shower. The small step to the enclosed pool area was not difficult either. I cannot recommend this villa highly enough, and we look forward to the possibility of renting this home in the future!
