About Bob Cowper

We have owned our home for twelve years and are from Gullane, East Lothian, Scotland. Our family enjoy our vacations at the villa with the boys enjoying the golf whilst the girls love the shopping, of course everyone enjoys the pool and the idillic setting that the home is situated in.

Bob Cowper purchased this Villa in 2005

Why Bob Cowper chose Bradenton

This property is one of the largest in Sabal Harbour and undoubtedly has the best outlook with commanding views over the lake in both south and westerly directions. The amount of wildlife is phenomenal with reed beds providing nesting for our resident Sand Cranes and fishing grounds for the Great Blue Heron, Osprey and many other birds.

What makes this Villa unique

Our villa is ideally situated not only because of the location on the estate and large pool but its proximity to local amenities such as Shopping Plazas including Ellenton, The Mall at University Town Centre, local shops within walking distance, golf courses and I75 allowing easy access to the Gulf coast.

                                                              Relaxing stay in delightful Bradenton house.

                                                              Duncan L.Tunbridge Wells, Kent, UK

                                                              The house looks lovely in the photos, as one would expect, but in reality is if anything even nicer. It is incredibly spacious, well equipped and comfortable and the pool deck and pool in particular are both larger than they seem, making it a delightful and spacious place to sit and enjoy the views of the birdlife. We've been visiting S Florida for over twenty years and this aspect is as nice as anything we've ever stayed in. It's very well positioned at the bottom of the lake and very tranquil. The pool is beautiful, both longer and wider than it seems in the photos and crystal clear. The Sabal Harbour development seems predominantly residential as opposed to full of vacationers and is also very well situated for all the local amenities on Lockwood Ridge Road about a mile away. While it isn't gated, the house is positioned deep into it and we felt absolutely secure.

                                                              While not brand new, the property is clearly well maintained and the small handful of VERY minor issues we mentioned to the owner on arrival - primarily to ensure he was aware that we had not caused them - were to our surprise fixed up within a day by the friendly local property manager.

                                                              The owner is highly efficient and practical as well, easy to contact and up front to deal with, which is also very important.

                                                              All in all we had a lovely time and would definitely stay in this property again, which is the acid test.

                                                              Owner's Response:

                                                              Hi Duncan,

                                                              Really delighted you enjoyed your stay, thanks for your kind comments and your welcome anytime your back in the area.

                                                              Kind regards

                                                              Bob and Jackie

                                                              Great place to relax for the week

                                                              Rob P.

                                                              The villa met our expectations. The neighbourhood was quiet and everyone we met in passing was very friendly. The option for tennis in the community was also a plus. We found the place quite spacious and the kitchen was well equipped. The extra heat for the pool was welcomed for this time of year. The owner (Bob) was very helpful with answering any questions we had, and found that he always responded in timely order. We would be comfortable recommending this home to friends, and will keep this villa on our list for future travels to Bradenton/Sarasota area.

                                                              This property was amazing. There was more than enough space for the six of us who stayed. I thought that the bathrooms might be an issue, however it was not and worked out perfect. The hot tub and pool stayed warm. The towels were plush. I really enjoyed my stay at this property and it was a pleasure working with the owners.
