About Pauline Walduck.


My name is Pauline and my husband Howard and I purchased our lovely villa a little over ten 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.

Pauline Walduck. purchased this villa in 2006

Why Pauline Walduck. chose Bradenton

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.

Loved our stay!

  • 4 of 5

The property was very spacious, clean and neat. Beach towels, chairs and umbrellas where provided... which was very helpful!

The only thing that would have made the stay perfect would have been hand soap in the bathrooms and kitchen, toilet paper, laundry detergent for the required washing of the sheets at checkout.

The owners Pauline and Harold where amazing to work with. There was very quick response and helpful information provided to us.

Thank you for helping to make our stay in the Sarasota area a great one!

Owner's Response: Hello Connie, Thank you for your review, we are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay. It is unusual for the items you mention were missing not to be there. Although the villa is a self catering property, our management company maintenance staff are usually excellent at ensuring that a quantity of these basics are in place upon arrival at the home as a courtesy until guests can shop for such things themselves. I am so sorry for the oversight on this occasion. It would be great to have you stay again sometime. Thanks again. Pauline and Howard.

Beautiful home

  • 4 of 5

Beautiful house. Convenient location to all of Bradington. The only concern that we had was when we arrived there was algae in the pool so we weren't able to use the pool for the first 24 hours. However it was corrected by golf coast the next evening And we were then able to use the pool two hours later. Overall I would use the property again

Owner's Response: Hello Devon, Thank you for your kind review. We are upset to hear that the pool was not in perfect condition for you to use upon arrival as this is not something that we ever have concerns about. Our management company take great care of our villa on our behalf, and it is good to hear that they responded quickly to the problem and rectified the situation. We hope that you all enjoyed the amenities in the home, had a comfortable stay, and that the weather was kind to you during your stay. Many thanks. Kind Regards, Howard and Pauline,

Owner's Response: Hello Sarah, Thank you so much for your great review. We are so glad that you all enjoyed the local area (there is so much to do!! ), and also that the villa was to your liking. Grilling meals outside by the pool watching the wildlife on the lake is always a lovely end to a day. You will be welcome back at any time. Our best to you all. Kind Regards, Pauline and Howard.
