Why Patrice Shannon chose Bradenton

We were smitten with Anna Maria Island immediately upon our first visit in 2008. So much so that after our second visit we decided to buy a home here. We have been so happy to share our home with guests from locations all over America and Europe, many of whom are returning year after year. Thank you all! Patrice Shannon, Owner

The house made the vacation

  • 5 of 5

My family chose to stay in Bradenton so we could enjoy the local beaches on Anna Maria island. We were lucky enough to rent this beautiful home. The rooms were spacious especially the master which included a walk in shower. The living room has a large tv which was open to the kitchen that worked out great when we prepared meals. We enjoyed the pool and hot tub almost every night. The lanai was spacious with a table where we had dinner. To our surprise several birds visited daily which my kids enjoyed immensely. If you are looking for a spacious house with a pool in a quiet neighborhood close to the beautiful beaches rent this house, you will not be disappointed!

We had a lovely holiday at this villa. A beautiful well equipped home in a lovely setting. Very quiet neighbourhood which was close to the beautiful beaches in the area. If you need a "Disney Fix" it is only an hour and a half away on easy to drive roads. We only ventured there once as the area has so much to do and see, but because the house was so lovely we also spent a lot of time just chilling out by the pool and watching the local wildlife. Thoroughly recommended.

This home is perfect! It's a must stay!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at this villa for just over 2 weeks to celebrate my 21st birthday with my girlfriend, mum and dad. This holiday home has the perfect location for spending your days and evenings Island hoping and crashing at the beaches. The villa is quite superior with a tasteful layout and a homely feel of decor. As a family we would not hesitate in returning to this villa and we highly recommend staying here if you want to spend your vacation in the Anna Maria Island/Bradenton/Sarasota area. If you are in to wildlife then you've found your idea of paradise, looking across the lake from your pool area your guaranteed to see a vast amount of birds, turtles, squirrels, snakes, lizards and many more. But don't worry, the outdoor living area is caged in to prevent any of these getting close if you are someone who isn't fond of wildlife.

You are guaranteed to see wild dolphins around the waterways every day you spend in this part of Florida. So don't waste your dollars going to Busch gardens for the day when you have the excitement of it all in the wild in front of you for free.

We would like to thank Patrice & Regis once again for allowing us the privilege of staying in their home.

Our first visit to Bradenton and Anna Maria Island was great. The house had

everything we could possibly need to feel like a home from home. We enjoyed our

short drive over the bridge to the beach and the kids loved jumping into

the pool at the end of the day. A spacious and relaxed property and would

definitely recommend.

A beautiful home away from home.

  • 5 of 5

This was the second time we rented this home. We were very pleased with everything about it. The location is perfect,, close to beaches and many other attractions close by. The pool area is amazing, with a beautiful view of the pond,, full of wild life. The house is very comfortable and everything was clean and up to date. There is a great music collection and a wide variety of books. We enjoyed riding the bikes to the Robertson Preserve which is close by. The beaches which are just a few miles away are breath taking. We would highly recommend this home to anyone looking for a nice vacation getaway.

Very nice!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in the Bradenton area very much. We stayed here with another couple and their 3-year-old granddaughter as well as our 10-year-old son, and there was enough the keep us busy within just a few minutes dirve and to keep the kids entertained. We enjoyed driving into Tampa and seeing a Tampa Bay Rays Game and driving down Anna Maria Island towards Sarasota and stopping at some of the various island shopping. We would recommend this property to others and would even consider staying there again. The owner was very pleasant. I must add that we also enjoyed the stereo system and were able to keep the 3-year-old entertained watching her dancing away to some "old" classics.
