This property is well maintained and clean. It is our winter home and occupied by us November 15 through to May 7 each year. It is an exceptional location, close to churches, shopping, restaurants, the ocean and lots of golf. One half hour south of Tampa Bay, there is virtually no rain Sept or October. Every day is sunny. It is located across the river from Bradenton, 5 minutes away.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I am posting this review about guest Catherine Bettencourt of Indiana. She is a complete slob and should not be rented to. She overstayed her visit, turned the power on illegally, left the house in a complete mess and did not pay for the extra time she stayed. There has been a police report made and she is being sued civilly along with her relative who turned the power on illegally. She is an example of the worst kind of person who thinks nothing of taking advantage of people and her business Utopianoasis (addiction rehab) should be avoided at all costs.

Comfortably stayed for a month

  • 5 of 5

Nice, clean and comfortable place. Pool, AC, nice deck in the back. Good location - close to shops, fashion outlets, Emerson point, freeway access. Allan was very helpful and available for any questions or concerns.

Owner's Response: Alex is very gracious. We met before his stay and I was comfortable leaving my vacation home in his care. He did not disappoint and anyone having him as a guest will have no issues whatsoever.

marginal at best

  • 2 of 5

Back deck was unusable as it was overgrown with weeds. Kitchen table wobbled. Living room ceiling fan has only one speed - HI. Bed and sofa uncomfortable, especially the bed. Bathroom very small, no exhaust fan, toilet took FOREVER to refill after flushing.

We got through it but we wouldn't do it again or recommend it to anybody.

Owner's Response: Small potatoes. The house is 45 years old so expect SOME wear. Beds are what they are. Maybe not all are suitable for all people. If the toilet fills slowly, wait a minute, surely there is not something in life so pressing that a minute or so will be your damnation. I am not there 6 months at a time so if weeds(which grow everywhere in the WORLD) grow up through the deck boards, bend over and pull them out. It is not that difficult and certainly not worth complaining about. Life is too shortfor such pettiness. If little things are SO important, perhaps homeaway to save a few bucks is not the way to go. Perhaps a 5 star hotel would have been better, but somehow I feel there would have been complaints with that. Some people are simply whinners and the old expression," You cannot please everyone" seems appropriate. I like the other reviews which reflect the true nature of the property.
