About Terrie and John

John and Terrie have been in the Bradenton Sarasota area since 1978. Having a golfing family brought us to this area. We raised our children and now grandchildren near the most beautiful beaches in the world. We own our business in this area and travel a lot. This is why we decided to purchase a home for a vacation rental. We want others to experience the real Florida, be comfortable and make our home yours. That's right, you will be renting Santa's Vacation Home!

Terrie and John purchased this house in 2013

Why Terrie and John chose Bradenton

Our Vacation Home is in West Bradenton close to beaches. We are surrounded by every amenity that Florida living has to offer. The Pine Lakes neighborhood has sidewalks, manicured yards, easy access to public transportation and only a short walk to Schools, Parks, Hospital and Churches. We chose this area because we live here and know this area best suites travelers, without being penned in by hotel, condo and villa life. When we travel we choose this type of vacation rental, and have always been so pleased and we never forget those vacations.

What makes this house unique

Our home has a great open airy feeling. The Florida room overlooks the pool. The kitchen is spacious and has easy access to dining and breakfast nook areas. Our living room is huge. The bedrooms are large and comfortable. We have a 2 car garage and access to a bathroom from the backyard pool area. This is a bright cheery home!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Terrie is an exceptionally nice host and extremely pleasant and easy to communicate with. She was very flexible with us, allowing us to check-in early. The day of check-out we called to see if we could check-out late, but the place was booked so we couldn't. Terrie however, was very gracious about it and did let us have some extra time in the house while she cleaned around us, which she certainly did not have to do, so we really appreciated that. The house was exactly as described- absolutely "sparkling clean"- and it was very comfortable to stay in. Plently of towels for bathing and the pool. The pool in back was perfect for my 3 year old and the house had noodles and other pool toys as well. The pool is well shaded in the morning too, which made it the first thing we did each day. The house is a great location and a short drive to the beach- and the house had beach stuff like towels, chairs, umbrella, sand toys. Awesome! All in all, it was a great stay and I'd definitely return and stay again if the place is available. I really can't say enough about how friendly Terrie is- she has a really great energy about her. Thanks for a great vacation! Kara”

My wife and I built wonderful memories with our son, daughter-in-law, and 2 grandchildren (aged 3 and 7) in John and Terrie's home.

We had plenty of room both indoors and out. All necessary amenities were provided. The pool and shaded outdoor eating area provided for many hours of laughter, socializing, and playing. The 3 bedrooms/2 bathrooms provided plenty of room for the 6 of us.

We enjoyed taking daily walks after supper in the quiet neighborhood. Beaches, stores, restaurants, and parks are a short drive from this home.

We appreciate being able to park both cars in their spacious garage.

We enjoyed every moment of our 3 week stay.

Thanks for sharing your home with us.

Very clean with everything extra you could need

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time staying at this property and it's by far the best rental property we have stayed in so far. Everything was very clean and well kept. We came with our three year old daughter (which worries us each time), but it was very toddler friendly. There were toys for her, as well as board games to keep us all busy as a family. We also loved that there were extra beach chairs for trips to the beach (which is only a 15 minute drive down the road) and floats for the pool. We would recommend this place over and over again and we hope to be staying here again on our next visit to Bradenton.

Owner's Response: Family time is so important to us, and the little time we all have to enjoy with the family should be worry and hassle free. It is our pleasure to help make the precious time as fun and memorable as possible. We are so glad we can accommodate wonderful families, like yours, in our vacation home. Many people do return year after year. They have made it their Home Away from Home! Thank you for this wonderful review and being our guests.

Perfect Vacation

  • 5 of 5

First experiencing this type of accommodations for our family beach vacation and the property and location exceeded all of our expectations. The kids loved the pool and wanted to stay longer. We will definitely return to this property. The owners were very nice and checked to make sure our stay was great.

Owner's Response: Homeaway is the only way to spend vacation time as a family. We discovered it 7 years ago and it's the only way we travel. Our great experiences staying at vacation homes is why we decided to have one of our own to rent to others. It may be a small way of helping others enjoy our beautiful part of Florida, but we truly enjoy it. Thank you for your wonderful review and we do hope you return again and make this your home away from home! Terrie and John

We loved our vacation here!! The location is perfect. You are literally 15 from everywhere. Anna Maria beaches are 10 min drive. Very private. We saw maybe 20 people there. Cortez and Coquina are next to each other. Again 10 min drive. Our favorite was Siesta Key Beach! Only 15 miles away. Took a beautiful drive through Longboat Key to get there. This is very close to beautiful Sarasota. We went to St. Armands Circle. A ton of gift shops. A giant circle with beautiful art and statues everwhere. We went to a beautiful baseball field only 7 minutes from the house. A minor league team called Marauders. A Pittsburgh Pirates farm team. They Won! 10 dollar tickets,fried alligator bites, free tshirt night at the park, free face painting, and fireworks after the game. Again, this house is close to EVERYTHING!! In every direction. Quiet neighborhood and best of all my kids favorite part was the swimming pool in the backyard. Not to mention,Teri has thought of it all, even an extremely loud alarm goes off if the back door is opened to the pool. Which was a relief because we were concerned with that prior to the vacation. For little kids she has strollers and playpen so you can save packing space for your car. Everyone on this trip would highly recommend this peaceful home.

There are so many fun things to do nearby, and it looks like you found plenty. We do try to make the house as baby and kid friendly as possible. Also, we strive to try to make vacation time as easy and seamless as possible for our families. Thank you for being our guests and we hope your family comes back to make some more great family vacation memories! John and Terrie

We were in town for our annual bowling tournament. The house was perfect for the five of us. Close to shopping, golf and of course the bowling alley. Terrie greeted us upon our early arrival. The house had everything we needed for the five days we were there. Plenty of space and amenities. If the tournament returns to the Sarasota/Bradenton area we will definitely be back. Than you again!

Some National Parks and Museums include: South Florida Museum (home of Snooty the Manatee) and Bishop Planetarium, Mote Marine, The Desoto National Memorial, Gamble Plantation and the Ringling Museum to name a few. Theme Parks are a must go to in this area and many of the world’s best are within an hour and a half drive of our home. Disney World, Sea World, Universal Studios, Busch Gardens and LEGOLAND are the most well-known. The Hard Rock Casino is in Tampa only 45 minutes away and is one of the largest in the world! You can also board many cruise ships at the nearby Port of Tampa for cruises to the Caribbean and Mexico.

Within a 3 mile radius of our home are 7 Golf Courses and in the Sarasota/Bradenton area there are 54 Golf Courses. Bradenton is home to The Pittsburg Pirates Spring Training only 2 miles and the Orioles, Yankees, Phillies, Rays, Red Sox’s, Twins and Tigers in nearby cities.

Other must sees are the Manatee Viewing Center and Hydro Harvest Farms, just 20 minutes north of Bradenton as well as the beautiful drive across the Sunshine Skyway bridge over Tampa Bay. Events happen all year round, too many to mention. The Florida State Fair, Gasparilla Pirate invasion, Kumquat Festival, Strawberry Festival and Clearwater Jazz Festival are just a few.
