About Owner/Property Manager, Paul Martin

Currently living in River Strand and love the area. The beauty and quiet of the area as well as the outdoor activities of golf, tennis, walking and biking trails, are what drew us to the area, not to mention the unlimited sunshine and beautiful sunsets.

Owner/Property Manager, Paul Martin purchased this condo in 2012

Why Owner/Property Manager, Paul Martin chose Bradenton

River Strand has a great location as it borders the Manatee River and has many preserve areas for wildlife. It is peaceful and quiet, away from the traffic and congestion in the city, yet near enough to get to the beaches and downtown activities within 30 minutes. Fantastic shopping (including large factory outlet stores) is a short drive. Disney and Lego-land are less than 2 hours away. Busch gardens is 45 minute drive. Music and theater venues abound in nearby Bradenton, Sarasota and Tampa.

What makes this condo unique

If you want a place to relax, unwind after a day of playing golf, tennis or trips to the beach, River Stand can't be beat.

This condo was exactly as presented on the VRBO site

  • 5 of 5

The owners, Paul & Pam Martin met us on our arrival and were most helpful when asked. The condo was very clean, exactly as described, the beds most comfortable, we had a great view of hole #6 Estuary from our lanai on the 1 st floor. We certainly enjoyed the golfing and all the amenities that the River Strand area has to offer. We spent two wonderful months, March & April, and hope to return next year.

The condo was very well apointed and the River Strand complex is superb.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed every aspect of our stay. There were no issues or concerns with the condo. The River Strand complex including the golf, tennis, pools and restaurant and bar were staffed by wonderful personnel. The overall impression of our stay was that we were staying in a 5 star resort with our own condo. We will definitely be going back.

March was great!

  • 5 of 5

Condo was just what we needed. Great weather and great golf. Plenty of good restaurants within 5 miles although it was two miles to the main road!

Pretty well equipped except for the lanai and we solved that by buying an inexpensive table and chair to add to the three chairs for outside dining. The owner was exceptionally accessible any time we had a problem which was seldom. Would recommend this place to anyone wanting a great golfing vacation.
