About Pauline Walduck.


My name is Pauline and my husband Howard and I purchased our lovely villa a little over eleven years ago. We have spent a great deal of time making it a colourful and comfortable home to try to ensure that our guests will have always have an enjoyable stay in this wonderful location.

We love the home and the local area and try to visit twice year to enjoy the many towns and beaches nearby such as Siesta Key and the fabulous Anna Maria Island.

We live in the UK in the north of the country in an area called the Lake District where I work for a cottage rental company and my husband renovates period properties for a living.

We have made many friends over our decade of owning Little Palms Villa and are pleased to have many repeat guests who stay there, some returning year after year.

Why Pauline Walduck. chose Sabal Harbour

We spent a long time choosing our Florida home and decided that the place with the greatest appeal for us was the Gulf Coast with its superb beaches and unhurried lifestyle compared to other areas we visited. The home is just a 5 minute drive from the I 75 (running north south) close to the west coast allowing easy travel to the many attractions of the Sarasota and Bradenton area. The main point that we loved about the villa was the south facing view over the pool to the rear over a peaceful lake.

What makes this villa unique

Our villa has all of the amenities that any guest would need for a comfortable trouble free stay on the Gulf Coast. We have a fine management company who look after the home in our absence, and guests are constantly remarking on how clean and well maintained Little Palms Villa is. We have televisions in most rooms, a Bose sound system connected to the one in the in the main living room and radios and sound systems throughout the home. Our fully equipped kitchen means that the occasional evening at home is a must with dining areas in the kitchen, dining room and outside on the tiled patio are beside the pool. We provide a new gas bbq at no charge to guests (including gas). There are four loungers beside the heated pool which has underwater lighting to enable evening swimming and is under a lanai screen.

Fully air-conditioned, the home is a great base for families or even couples to spend time in comfort while exploring the great facilities in the locality. These include the pure quartz sandy beach and town of Siesta Key, the stylish city of Sarasota ( both reached within half an hours drive of Sabal Harbour) and the beautiful Anna Maria Island with its quaint 'Key West' feel and miles of clean beaches.

Comfortable House

  • 4 of 5

The house is great and it's in a nice area. We were so pleased to find that the beds are really comfortable. I must complain about the management company, though. The house looked perfectly clean, although some things are quite old or used, until I looked in the drawers and cabinets, and when the shower curtain holder cracked, they charged me way too much money saying it was due to negligence on my part. But the owners are great and understanding and they took care of it. So I would definitely go back ... if they changed their management company.

Great family beach vacation!!!

  • 5 of 5

I have to say that this is one of my best experiences I have had while vacationing. The pictures don't do justice to how the house really is. The house was spacious and has all amenities needed to enjoy and relax when not at the beach. My wife loved the walking closet and bathroom for master bedroom. The internet was fast enough, which allowed my kids to enjoy online gaming when they were not in the pool or basketball court. I enjoyed the gas grill and spending time by the pool. The pool area and ceiling fan needs some cleaning, but overall it was fine. I called property management about the pool and they sent somebody to look at it. We love the location and the drive to the beach didn't feel that long. Pauline and Howard are great hosts and we will definitely look forward to staying again at the magnificent Little Palms Villa.

We are making a number of upgrades to the villa décor, pool area and gardens late this fall when we visit and it would be great to welcome you all back someday. Best Regards, Howard and Pauline.
