Guestbook comments from the owner

Great vacation home!!

Gratz Palatine, USA

Review Submitted: August 6, 2009 Date of Stay: June 2009

I just want to say how much we loved staying in your home for our summer vacation. The house was so beautiful! It was close enough to the beaches that we went to watch the sunsets every night. The house is very private, but close enough to many stores for your shopping needs. We were so surprised at how large the home was as well as the pool. The clubhouse pool was also a nice extra added benefit. Thank you for your kindness and easy renting process. We had a wonderful time!

Owner's Response: A review like this confirms our opinion that maintaining our home to a high standard is good for the client and good for us, the owners. We want people to come back again and again to stay in our home. It may not be the cheapest on the market but it represents excellent value.We use the villa ourselves throughout the year, thus being able to stay on top of all those small maintenance jobs. Thank you Grazia and family for your review!

We loved the home - so spacious and well-maintained. The screened-in pool was great to relax around and the kids had a ball playing in it...weren't bothered by any unwanted insects. The drive to Coquina Beach was a bit long but that beach is worth the drive! My husband had a once-in-a-lifetime experience at that beach - he swam with TWO wild manatees! The house was always cool and welcoming when we got 'home'. Everything you could expect.

Great Summer Vacation Rental

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful time in this 5 bedroom home. The pool was very nice, the home was spacious and the location was easy to access. The owner was very prompt in all their responses. We would recommend this home to anyone looking into renting in Bradenton. It's approx. 30 minutes to a beach and 45-60 minutes to Tampa Int. Airport.

(FYI) You will need to provide your own paper and cleaning products: ie: toilet paper, paper towels, laundry detergent, dishwasher detergent, kitchen trash bags.

Great spot

  • 4 of 5

Five slightly older golfers visited for a week. The house was a great choice, the rooms were great, loads of towels etc, the info binder was most useful, well worth paying to get the pool heated. We spent most of our time poolside. Plenty of space indoors.

We had to think hard for suggestions. Some of the beds creaked noticeably. Info about garbage pick up days was missing. Thats about it.

Yes, we would go back again, without hesitation.

Spring Break in Bradenton/Sarasota

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 enjoyed this 5BR home for our trip to the area. The home was clean and comfortable, with everything needed for a vacation stay. The teenagers enjoyed the pool in the evenings. We paid extra for the pool to be heated during our stay, and this is highly recommended unless it's summer. We found that we were about 45 minutes away from the family-favorite Siesta Beach. We didn't mind the drive, but trying to find parking was a challenge at all of the popular beaches. The home is convenient to grocery shopping and to the interstate for trips north to Tampa/St. Pete. The owner was always responsive and helpful to answer all questions within a few hours., and the property manager replaced the dead coffee maker almost immediately when I let him know that it wasn't working. We would definitely rent this home again if we return to the Bradenton/Sarasota area.
