Great vacation!!

  • 5 of 5

My family had a wonderful time in your condo. Landscaping was meticulously taken care of. The whole neighbourhood was gorgeous and people were friendly. We felt safe and happy. The kids cried on the last day because they did not want to leave. The place warrants a repeat visit. We look forward to seeing it again next year. The condo looks better than the pictures and the expectations were totally fulfilled. One thing that is not mentioned in the description of the place is that there is a full patio dining table and chairs on the screened in balcony. The owner was quick to respond to all questions before and during our stay. Thank you John once again for allowing us the opportunity to spend our vacation in your condo. Ron and family, Merrickville, Ontario,Canada

Great rental property!!!

  • 5 of 5

Hi John, We were very fortunate to have stayed at your condo for just about a month. Tara is so beautiful. It is close to great shopping, restaurants and beaches. We enjoyed the entertainment at Siesta Key beach on the weekends. We spent many hours on the lanai watching the golfers, eating meals and relaxing. The condo was well equipped and we appreciated the clean bed after a long day of travelling. You need to add new pictures on your listing to show the upgrades to the two bedrooms. They are very nicely decorated. The swimming pool was great and we met alot of friendly people there. Thanks for sharing your condo with us. We hope to be back again next year!

Tara Vacation Condo

  • 5 of 5

We have been staying in the Bradenton area every winter for the last eight years, so we are very familiar with the area. Tara is one of the nicest communities you will find in Bradenton. There are two golf courses, one private, one public (The Preserve). I played the Preserve, which I really enjoyed. It has a very good driving range, also. The condo was very clean, weIl maintained, and offered wireless internet, which was helpful in keeping up with emails and searching available local interests. The view of the golf course from the screened rear balcony was pleasurable. There is a good sized pool with plenty of lounge chairs. I would highly recommend this condo.

Absolutely Perfect

  • 5 of 5

I came back in Oct and the weather was perfect for quiet mornings with coffee watching golfers and beautiful sunsets in the evening, all from the screened lanai. With the comfortable furniture and nice table & chairs we almost lived out there. Everything you need is included even if you are going to the beach. We used the jacuzzi by the pool every evening. The attractions in Sarasota, the beaches, and even St. Pete is an easy drive. The owner was very helpful and responded quickly. This is one of the most comfortable, relaxing and convenient places I have stayed.

Terraces at Tara

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for sharing your Florida vacation home with us again this year. Everything was exactly as described and the recent renovations (new living room/dining room carpeting, master bedroom ensuite and kitchen upgrades) were super. The internet accessibility is a definite asset and the wireless printer in the unit a plus. The golf course is in great shape and we did manage to get a number of golf games in but still found time to visit a couple of our favourite attractions in the Sarasota area (Ringling Museum and Siesta Key Beach). We are already looking forward to our return next year. See you then !!!
