Amazing location with beautiful pool and lanai

  • 5 of 5

What a great place to spend the month of November! And the amazing weather this year allowed us to use the pool every day - a real treat. While the house is well appointed and comfy, it is the outside lanai with pool and hot tub that rates this property as exceptional. The view of the pond and its wildlife, complete with alligator, is tranquil. The transferable golf membership is more than a plus given the 27 hole course is around the corner: The River Strand golf courses are a beautiful challenge! We did have to call the management company regarding the Internet - their response was immediate and the problem sorted out. Great choice of restaurants in Lakewood Ranch and UTC - highly recommend Tandoor Fine Indian Cuisine. The beaches on Anna Maria Island are a great place to spend a day. After shopping (or just browsing) at Ellenton Mall, enjoy a great Margarita at Woodys River Roo overlooking the Manatee River. With Tampa only a 45 minute drive away it's easy to go to a Bucks game (and watch them lose again). Overall, an excellent home away from home, but don't look to go next November, we've already booked it!

Relaxation just happens here

  • 5 of 5

Great place to chill, raining or not.This villa is well located for you just to lie back ,swim or spa.

We had a small reason to call management company due to two of the mesh panels around the pool burst ( not our doing ) This was well handled and fixed in no time at all,😀😃😀 We even got great tips from the handy man where to visit. Very well mannered Young man.

You will have nothing to fear staying here.. Apart from my jealousy. Ha ha

Over the years we have stayed in many villas in Florida and this was definitely one of the best. The property was clean and well-maintained with modern furnishings and everything you could possibly need for a comfortable stay. The pool area in particular was idyllic, looking out onto a beautiful lake with its very own alligator! Sunshine throughout the day meant that lazing in the pool was like relaxing in a warm bath!

There was so much to do in the surrounding area that we did not have time to take advantage of the facilities on offer at River Strand which looked great for golf and tennis enthusiasts. Everything was in easy reach of the villa and the traffic and parking was never an issue as, surprisingly, everywhere was very quiet in August. The beaches at Siesta Key, Bradenton and Anna Maria Island were fabulous - we saw dolphins swimming close to shore and a manatee floating past the pier. A boat trip around Sarasota Bay on a beautiful sunny Sunday afternoon was one of our holiday highlights. There was also a good choice of shopping and restaurants in the vicinity which catered for everyone's taste.

Finally, the owner was a pleasure to deal with, responding quickly to any queries we had before our trip. We cannot wait to return!

Excellant House - as advertised

  • 5 of 5

Our stay could not have been better. As someone who lived in the area for 30 years before moving away, I know the area well and this was perfect for our vacation back home. The house is immaculate and well taken care of. Security is not an issue as it is in a gated golf community with 27 holes that is also in fantastic shape. The proshop was great to work with and allowed me to play alone without a teetime. Close to I75 and many restaurants and shopping within 10 miles.

Will be coming back for sure.

Amazing Holiday Home

  • 5 of 5

Stunning holiday house. Finished to a high quality and we could not fault it. Very spacious and well equipped (it had everything you could need). The resort it is in was well maintained with beautiful gardens. We loved the pool ( it was nice and warm). We also enjoyed sitting relaxing and watching the birds on the lake. We were on a family holiday ( with a 3 year old) so this house was a great base for fantastic beaches (siesta key is a must) and exploring the area. The play park on the resort was also handy. We did bush gardens and dinosaur world. This house is perfect for families or golfers. We would have no hesitation in recommending it and the owner was extremely helpful in answering any queries which we had. A truly memorable holiday which was down to an amazing house.
