About Robin Pearson

I am a property developer with interests in London, USA, Turkey & Spain. This property is our favourite holiday home

Robin Pearson purchased this villa in 2008

Why Robin Pearson chose Bradenton

We chose to invest in Sarasota owing to the all year sunshine and access to over 50 golf courses. The city itself is very cosmopolitan with outdoor dining and a very European atmosphere.

What makes this villa unique

The property is located in River Strand which boasts a fantastic clubhouse with first class tennis courts, 27- hole golf course and a superb resort style swimming pool together with excellent dining facilties. No need to drive after the accidental 'one cocktail too many'!

Guestbook comments from the manager

We have stayed at this Villa TWICE this year.

The location is excellent in a newish development - River Strand , which is within the Heritage Harbour golfing communities.

The villa itself is first class - well furnished (inc a pool table)

Great Air - con and a huge pool which can be fenced off for child safety.

The location is near to major supermarkets and a few miles from Ellenton Outlets and De Soto mall.

The pool overlooks a lake/pond at the rear with plenty of wild life.

Great sunsets at night, and 20 mins from the best beaches in the world ( really)

Great location for visiting Sarasota, tampa, St petes,

The owners have been very helpful when renting - dont book too often - we want to go back !!

Enjoyable

  • 3 of 5

Location of house was in a quiet spot , away from the golf course. Community environment was very conducive to walking, riding bikes, swimming at house and clubhouse facilities. Various activities were offered, such as, zumba and yoga exercises, line dancing , and special clubhouse events during the month, such as, Valentine Day party, italian night, etc. Accommodations for sleeping could have been more comfortable. Interior is showing signs of aging, such as cracked floors, ice maker not working properly, replacement of some kitchen utensils, and rugs better taken care of.

Owner provided quick assistance if there was a problem.

Within a 10 mile radius there are plenty of shopping, eateries, and entertainment activities.

Winter getaway

This was a large and comfortable house. The pool was so beautiful and I enjoyed a relaxing swim every afternoon. Any problems arising were promptly addressed and taken care of. I will be returning in future winters.

Great House / Great Location

  • 5 of 5

We were 4 guys on a golf trip. Having done this before on 5 different occasions this was by far the best accommodations we have had. The pool was clean, the house had everything and it was also very clean. The cost was comparably the same as the other 4 times. The only small criticism I would make is reflective more on the management company and that. Is with such a beautiful location and property you should really upgrade your BBQ rentals. The price of BBQ's today should allow for it. Otherwise great trip and Robin was fantastic to deal with, very prompt with his replies. We had absolutely no issues requiring maintenance calls and that was a first. Thanks for everything!

Canadian Snowbirds

  • 5 of 5

Our entire family had such a great time. River Strand is beautiful- so much so that we are looking to book again but sadly we weren't quick enough to grab it for next year. There is so much wildlife and the song birds were lovely, but i have to admit that i never saw the Resident Alligator- he must have moved to another pond. The weather was great, the pool was amazing, house had everything provided and more. Any dealings with Robin, the owner, have been nothing short of fantastic and having never been there, Robin offered up many suggestions of how to make our visit more pleasurable. The management company was also great to deal with and we never felt bothered by the few visits we had to ensure the property was in order. Thank you for allowing our family to have a great holiday.

Wonderful place to be.

  • 5 of 5

This was a lovely home. No complaints at all. The minor issues we had were taken care of immediately. River Strand is a wonderful community. The people everywhere are so friendly. The golfing was just fantastic. I particularly enjoyed all of the amazing wildlife. We enjoyed our stay here so much that we have re-rented again for next year. We would have re-rented the same house but sadly someone had already beaten us to it. We plan to make a visit to River Strand a yearly thing.

Great House for a Group of 8

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic time at this property. This is the third time that I've rented a house in Florida and this one is certainly on par with the others. The kids had a blast in the pool and there was plenty of space for our large group. The wives certainly took advantage of the house's close proximity to the outlet mall at Ellenton! The homeowner and property managers were very easy to deal with. Although I never golfed on this trip, the course looked freat and there were many other courses in the region.

This house is highly recommended.

Owner's Response: Hi Luke, thanks so much for your very positive review. It was a real pleasure handling your inquiry and the fact that the deposit and balance could be paid on-line via credit card with no hassle. I hope that in future years you will consider our villa again. All the best, Robin
