Why CHIRSTINA AND JEFF chose River District

We love the simple life of downtown Bradenton. It has so much within walking distance and it is also close to the bus line if you don't feel like taking the car out. It is close to all that is needed by car, like beaches and stores.

What makes this cottage unique

Quite, safe, near everything!!!

We recently stayed at this lovely home. The home was very comfortable. We enjoyed our time outside in the beautiful backyard. We appreciate that the home was fully furnished with any item that we may have needed during our stay. Even our dog, Joey, had his own food and water bowl waiting for him. I also appreciate the communication with the owners. They were always prompt with any email that was sent. It was a great location...close to the beach, grocery stores, the downtown area, and the Riverwalk area. It is the perfect home!

Cute Cottage

  • 4 of 5

The cottage was cute and had everything needed for a comfortable stay. I especially loved the shaded backyard. More lighting is needed in the house - I found it difficult to find a well let location for reading.

Excellent family rental!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed at the August Moon for a long hockey weekend. It was perfect for our family! Convenient location, all the amenities, and a fenced in backyard. I highly recommend this cottage to families with young children.

Would be 5 stars if had curtains in bedrooms and more mirrors.

  • 4 of 5

Everything ran smoothly and place was clean. You can see in the bedrooms at night if the light is on. Curtains and a full length mirror in the bedrooms would be nice. We put sheets over windows during our stay. Would recommend and would stay there again

Charming house in nice neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

The home was lovely – and cozy. Although an older home it has been renovated while keeping the charm of the older home architecture. Upgrades included air-conditioning, overhead lighting in rooms with fans, updated bathroom and a gorgeous kitchen with new appliances. The house was clean and the bed/pillows quite comfortable. I enjoyed sitting in the backyard in the late afternoon where the large trees kept the area nice and cool. And I also enjoyed sitting on the screened porch – a real bonus! The location is within 15 minutes to all of the restaurants I wanted to eat at . Morning and evening walks along the river and throughout the neighborhood were enjoyable - very interesting with homes from different periods of time. Although there was PLENTY of closet space, my recommendation would be to have small chests or dressers with drawers for in the two bedrooms to put clothes and to put things "on". But that would not stop me from recommending the home to others, or requesting to stay there again. And they were THOUGHTFUL - had two nice bowls "out" on a mat for my dogs -
