Rivendell Villa Rental Photos and Description

Front Lake View 3 Bedroom 3 Bathroom Luxury Pool Home.

Set in a quiet private residential community with lush tropical landscaping and lakes offering biking and walking in scenic nature trails with Oscar Scherer State Park and the Legacy Trail just four minutes away. This beautiful air conditioned 3 bedroom 3 bathroom home has a superb floor plan in that each bedroom with own bathroom are located separately in the villa affording total privacy. It is furnished to a high standard and includes WiFi. There is a south facing private heated pool backing onto a preserve. The lanai also affords total privacy with six sun loungers and a large barbecue and is an ideal setting for alfresco dining and soaking up the Florida sun. There is also a large heated communal pool which is very under utilized and excellent for some serious swimming! The state of the art YMCA which has an Olympic size pool is five minutes drive from us and offers weekly and monthly membership rates for visitors.

Sarasota not only has some of the finest beaches in the USA known for their white sand and spectacular sunsets! It also offers excellent water sports, unlimited fishing golf and a boating launch nearby. There are numerous golf courses locally and late deals can be booked online to secure excellent rates. Sarasota is also a cultural city offering many attractions including theaters museums opera and ballet.

A wonderful place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We are regular visitors to the Gulf Coast and this house was just perfect for our latest holiday. The house is not just a holiday rental, it is also Patrick and Breda's second home and this is reflected in the care and attention that has been put into making it such a lovely place to stay. The location is perfect for the beach, shopping and restaurants. The area called Rivendell is by far the prettiest and is beautifully maintained. The house itself has everything you could need for a relaxing stay - the photos are very accurate. The pool area is very private and pool itself is sparkling and for the first time in all our visits over the past 20 years, I have never heard so many birds singing. The close proximity to the Legacy Trail meant we were able to utilise the 4 bikes in the garage too. The booking process was faultless with all my emails answered very promptly. I would thoroughly recommend Patrick and Breda's home to anyone wishing to have the perfect getaway.

Great Villa, Great Location, Super Amenities

  • 5 of 5

We regularly rent properties in Florida and this was probably the best we have rented. The property was exactly as described, was clean and well maintained the facilities were first class. Location superb - great for easy access to beaches, shops restaurants and golf courses. The v ill also contained chairs, cold boxes etc for the beach and extras like bikes which is great if you want to explore the excellent nearby Legacy Trail. Plenty of sun loungers around the pool and inside was very comfortable - enjoyed the big screen TV to watch the baseball play offs! All my communication was with Breda who was brilliant, communication was easy and prompt and she was extremely helpful with the various questions / queries we had. Cant speak highly enough of the property and the people we had a great holiday and I highly recommend this property.

Great house and place to stay

  • 5 of 5

The house is located in a very nice and quiet residential area just south of Sarasota. House is very nice and clean with a great pool. The pictures do not lie. Close drive to Nokomis Beach and Siesta Key Beach. The house is well equipped with all you need and the property owner is very helpful at all times. Shopping and restaurants close by. Perfect place to stay and we would definitely go back!

1st long vacation - won't be last!

  • 5 of 5

My husband just retired and we were looking for a place on short notice. We were so lucky to find Breda and PJ's villa as our first experience! The house and pool are fabulous. The quiet neighborhood and surroundings are beautiful and we were completely relaxed during our 3 week stay. The local restaurants were delightful and we visited Siesta Key Beach. Most days were spent lounging by the pool and just relishing in the beautiful weather! I am grateful to Breda and PJ for helping to make Bob's first retirement vacation perfect!

Absolutely perfect family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We had such an amazing time in Sarasota! Breda + PJ were fantastic from start to finish - very quick with replying to emails and sending additional details as we got closer to traveling. The home is beautiful. This was a family vacation for us and we all agreed that it was the first time the accommodations were actually BETTER than the photos! The home is spotless and very well appointed. Fully equipped kitchen, very comfortable beds, nice updated bathrooms. The private pool was a very fun bonus! We are absolutely planning to return to the villa again.

Best villa Ever

  • 5 of 5

We usually go to Florida once a year, and stay in very good villas. I never thought our previous experiences could be topped, but Breda and PJ managed it. Not only is the villa perfectly laid out and has all the amenities one could ask for, it is also perfectly located. Easy access to Sarasota Main Street with all of it's shops and restaurants, easy access (5 min) to beach, and lots of restaurants nearby if you don't want to drive to Main Street. We stayed for 3 weeks, but wish we could stay longer. Definitely will return. Thank you Breda and PJ for your hospitality.
