The home was very clean,with everything we needed

  • 4 of 5

Everything we needed was available to make our stay very comfortable. The area was nice and quit and the pool was very warm. The owners contacted us to make sure everything was ok. The only thing we would have liked was a better tv and a coffee pot that shut off automaticlly

We have stayed in this villa for the past 7 years and have booked again for this year. The web site was accurate, the villa was well maintained, very clean inside and so was the pool, the management company sorted out a minor problem very quickly. Very easy to book and the owners very helpful. I would certainly advise anyone to book who wants a quiet holiday on a golf course. Plenty of good restaurants within an easy drive,

First class villa on a first class golf course

  • 5 of 5

It was exactly as shown on the web site. We stayed 5 weeks Sept/Oct 2009 and have already booked for this year. Villa was clean, pool was hot, the sun was shining. A lot of information was in the villa, the owners were very helpful. We have stayed at Heritage Harbour many times but last year was the first time in this villa and we would have no hesitation in recommending it to friends

Owner's Response: We were very happy to read this review. Interestingly, we now have quite a few repeat guests who stayed for 29 weeks in 2009. We really do enjoy helping our guests make the most of their stay.

Delightful Stay in Bradenton Villa

  • 5 of 5

We spent 10 days in Neil and Lesley's villa over the Easter period. The property is quite new and in tip top condition. It is large and airy with a good standard of fittings, including cable TV. The swimming pool looks out over a small lake which has its own resident bird and pond life, herons, cormorants, ducks and turtles. Large hawks circled overhead and we were told that there was also an alligator but we never saw it. The property is surrounded by golf courses and we watched as golfers teed off on the far bank of the pond. The villa is situated on a high class gated community on the outskirts of Bradenton. The town centre has little to enthuse about but is well placed for some fabulous beaches and has excellent links to surrounding towns and cities. Wall Mart and Publix Supermarkets are a 5 minute drive away as are countless restaurants. The outlet shopping mall at Ellenton is only a short drive and the big malls around Tampa are about an hour away. In addition to sunbathing and shopping Busch Gardens at Tampa is well worth a visit and in the opposite direction Sarasota, Venice and the Myakka State Park are easily reached. We enjoyed our stay very much and got the chance to meet the owner Neil who is a very nice chap.

There are numerous golf courses within 5 - 15 minutes drive, all of which are of a high standard and incredibly good value. This area is definitely a golfers paradise !

Golf: This area is, without doubt, a golfers paradise with over 50 courses to choose from within the Sarasota / Bradenton area ! Four of the very best are within 5 - 10 minutes ie Stoneybrook , River Strand, Waterlefe and The Links each of which is well worth playing and has plenty of wildlife !

Green fees vary by season / time of day (often cheaper after 2pm) but are very good ($30-$80).

Stoneybrook: you're on it, the villa overlooks a lake and the challenging 5th hole! A real test of golf played through mature 'Preserve' landscape, lakes and ponds. The Links at Greenfield Plantation: good public course just down the road with open fairways but plenty of water / out of bounds.

Waterlefe: an absolute must! It really is a challenge for all levels of golfers and offers 5 different sets of tees.There are some unforgettable holes carved along side the scenic Manatee River. River Strand: Although new, already 27 holes of some of the best golf in the area with the latest 9 holes winding their way alongside the Manatee River.

As a keen golfer myself, I am more than happy to give recommendations/advice to guests on where/when to play.
