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.

Large home, nice appliances.

  • 4 of 5

Everything was ok except for the furniture in the LR and den. It was old, ugly and uncomfortable. And property is far from the beaches.

Nice property

  • 4 of 5

It had a great view of the pond. Relaxing feel. It was a little noisy at night but it could of been because of the holidays. It was off the beaten path and hustle of busy street, but yet close stores, beach, etc. The house was nice and the price was great. The owner Eileen was very quick to respond to anything that we needed. We enjoyed this property and we will be using this location again when we return to the area. Thanks Eileen for making our holiday enjoyable.

Quite Comfortable and Conveniently Located

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this home the week of Thanksgiving. We hosted Thanksgiving dinner for family in the area. The two refrigerators really helped with this. The home is quite comfortable and conveniently located. We enjoyed sitting in the screened lanai drinking tea, reading, and watching the ducks in the small lake behind the house. We walked around the neighborhood; it was nice area. For Thanksgiving dinner (and other meals), we got food from the nearby Publix, Fresh Market, and Detwilers Farm Market. You can get to Detwilers by going south on 33rd St. to 63rd Ave, then south on Lockwood Ridge to University where Detwilers is on the southeast corner. You can get to Fresh Market without getting on any major streets by again going to 63rd Ave and staying on it (it becomes Honore Ave) until just before University. The Fresh Market is on the northeast corner of University and Honore. A brand new Whole Foods is going in across University from The Fresh Market. Two restaurants to try—both on Lockwood Ridge at University: Demetrios (Italian and Greek) on southwest corner—we had a large party here and everyone’s food was great; Brasa & Pisco (Peruvian) on the northeast corner behind Floor & Décor—we took one of our granddaughters here for lunch—very good and not too expensive.
