About Eileen Antonelli

Joe and Eileen Antonelli grew up in NY and have been married for over 30 years . Eileen is a Registered Nurse and Joe works in clinical research. We vacationed all over Florida for over 28 years but fell in love with Bradenton when our two daughters came her to go to Ringling College, for animation and one for design and sculpting. We loved the area . and moved to Bradenton permanently in 2011. We now are grandparents and spend time enjoying our kids, as well as spend a lot of time boating and fishing in manatee river. We live full time Bradenton and are just a phone call away if you need anything

Eileen Antonelli purchased this house in 2004

Why Eileen Antonelli chose Bradenton

Both of our daughters attended Ringling College and they lived in this house during that time. We love this community, the view, and the neighbors are the best. Our daughters live the area, and we still have our family stay here at this house when they come down from the NE to visit us to get away from the cold! We personally take care of this house, and treat our guests like family.

What makes this house unique

A beautiful house that we are proud to have family and friends stay in. The hotels do not compare. This is Close to everything, has everything you need, close to great restaurants, fun activities, great neighborhood for kids to play. Close to Walmart, Publix, Sam's club. A home away from home Large roomy space with everything you need and a great lake behind the house. The duck, and birds are beautiful to watch in the morning with a cup of coffee. Neighbors are very friendly, and helpful.

Everything As Advertised

  • 5 of 5

We were three men who were in the area for the NCAA Women's Division I National Golf Tournament.

The location and accommodations were great for our needs and much, much better than the alternative

hotel or motel accommodations. It would be excellent for a golfing outing as lots of golf courses in the


We can confirm what other reviewers have written. However, would like to emphasize that the owners

are easy to work with and response is almost immediate. It is obvious that the pride in the upkeep

makes you realize and feel that you are a guest in their home.

Wonderful home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

Home was conveniently located for us as my daughter attends Ringling College in Sarasota. 20 minutes from Ringling and 15 minutes to I75. My 91 year old mother accompanied me and therefore I had specific needs to accommodate her. The one floor home, open concept, screened in lanai and fenced backyard kept her feeling secure to enjoy outdoor living of watching the ducks, cranes, turtles, cardinals, squirrels that lived in and surrounding the pond.

Definitely will stay here again.

Everything as advertised!

  • 5 of 5

Two couples visited this rental for 2 weeks and enjoyed the house. Everything was as advertised and the house actually was bigger than we thought. The house was clean and comfortable. It was close to the beaches and other interesting spots. Eating out was easy because of the many fine restaurants that were close by. Our favorite was Duff's Buffet. We were able to easily walk to the pools and tennis court. A little cool for swimming but we did go in twice. The house had everything that we needed and the neighbors (Roger) were very helpful with directions and other information. Very quiet neighborhood. The owners were to quick to respond to our correspondence and very helpful in that regard. They supplied beach chairs for the 4 of us. We would recommend this property to all whether it be a family, couples or just a group of friends.

Owner's Response: Brian , I am so glad that you and your lovely wife had a great time, and that the house was better than you expected! That is always nice to hear. And that you felt we were very responsive. Joe and I always try to treat all our guests like family, and it makes me happy to know you enjoyed our home. Have a great summer and we look forward to seeing you again in the future.
