We are from Eastern Canada and purchased this home in 2012.

We are avid golfers, hence the purchase of this home in one of the most prestigious neighborhoods in the area. Since we are still working we cannot spend all the time we want in the home. We love the area and know that anyone that rents it will fall in love with the home and the area.
We love to sit in the lanai in the evenings with a glass of wine watching the sunset. We have a keen interest in birds and this lakeside home offers an up close encounter with several different species of wading and diving birds, literally right in our back yard. We catch bass right off our property as well.
You can walk to the clubhouse and enjoy a wonderful culinary experience by one of the best chefs in the area.
The 18 hole championship golf course is impeccably maintained and each hole offers a different challenge.
This was a well presented villa with a few areas needing some attention. Unfortunately the pool is north facing so does not get much sun on it from November to March. It does have a nice view over a pond towards the golf course. It would benefit from electric or gas heating to support the solar heating which was leaking when we were there. The pool deck and pool area are tired and could do with some some refurbishing. The villa is comfortable and has everything you will need for an enjoyable stay. The area is well supplied with restaurants and supermarkets and is close to golf courses.
The furniture was comfortable, it was nice to have a garage, the appliances were all in good shape. The beds were comfortable as well. The kitchen floor could have been cleaner. That is why I gave it four stars...otherwise it would be a five star.
I loved the layout of the house and all of the amenities ! This is a great property!
First of all, we thoroughly enjoyed this home and provide a respectable 4 stars to the rating. The home was in great condition, clean, and was stocked with many items to use during our stay--floats, spice rack, etc. So what could make it better? Faster internet connection (1mb down, 10mb up--yes, I know that's opposite of normal) and TVs in the 2nd & 3rd bedrooms. If the internet connection were better, the kids could have streamed videos to their iPads, but the internet speed was too slow to support two devices streaming. That being said, there is very little that did not meet or exceed our expectation.
Combine the home quality with the location (close to Bradenton or Sarasota) and you are left with a great vacation rental. I look forward to visiting again.
Great stay, beautiful home can't wait to return. Fantastic owner to deal with.
We have been escaping to the Gulf Coast from Marco to Clearwater for many years to take a break from the long winters in the northeast. Last year, we discovered this charming and convenient home in the Tara Golf & Country Club community. The home is beautifully appointed and very comfortable for our family of 4, including growing teen-age kids. We can hang out by the pool and watch many Florida birds in the pond behind the home. The street and community are warm and friendly, and the Sunday brunch served in the clubhouse is delectable. Bradenton and Sarasota have a lot to offer in the way of beaches, plays, nature preserves, and shopping.
This property is within minutes walk to the Tara Golf and Country Club Clubhouse For a onetime fee of $200 you can assume member privileges and have full use of the Golf Club, Club House, Olympic Swimming Pool, Gym, Hot Tub Sauna and Flood-lit Tennis Courts. The Club House is a very short walk from the property.
There is freshwater and saltwater fishing only minutes away from the property. There is lots of shopping within walking distance with most major shops and the Ellenton Outlet Mall is only a 10 minute drive away. Sarasota, which is known for its arts and culture centres is only a 20 minute drive from the property.
