About John and Lynne

Lynne and I have owned this home since its new build as a model home in 2002. We soon began to rent our home as vacation rental with a very successful outcome. Why did we choose this area?? As residents of the United Kingdom, we discovered the Sarasota-Bradenton area quite by chance whilst on a vacation based in Orlando. We fell in love with the area's beaches, in particular those on Anna Maria Island, and all what else the area had to offer. So much so, we bought, never looked back and developed our theme that our home is "easy to find, but difficult to leave!"

John and Lynne purchased this Villa in 2002

                                                          Patrice S.

                                                          This home is perfect for a family vacation. All the amenities are supplied. Games, books, movies, coolers and beach chairs, bikes, and so much more were supplied. We loved the back pool area and the spacious house as there were 5 of us staying there. The home location was perfect with so much to do close by. The house was immaculate too. Thanks for listing your home on Homeaway.com. We will definitely be coming back again soon for another visit!

                                                          Thanks again,

                                                          John and Lynne

                                                          Owner's Response:

                                                          Many thanks to Gunnar for taking the time to write your review.

                                                          Everything was simply wonderful. The home was perfect, it was home away from home. The area was lovely. The property manager, Carolyn was so kind and helpful. We truly could not have asked for more! We are already planning on returning to the home next year!

                                                          Owner's Response:


                                                          Many thanks for taking the time to write your review. It was a pleasure to have your family as guests in our Bradenton home. We are so glad you liked the Sarasota Bradenton area and it is very true to say, those who come to the area really do come back.

                                                          John and Lynne

                                                          Heaven on Earth!!

                                                          Mark H.

                                                          Over the years we have rented in areas throughout Europe, the United States and Canada. The standard of most rental properties is usually quite good - but there is often some annoying detail which only becomes evident once you arrive - for example:

                                                          the nearest restaurant (five minute walk) has been closed for many years;

                                                          Overlooking neighbours can be airbrushed from digital photos;

                                                          The empty toiletry press is rarely highlighted.

                                                          NONE OF THE FOREGOING APPLY IN THIS CASE!!!!

                                                          This is no ordinary rental "property" - it is truly a rental HOME.

                                                          The location is perfect. Busch Gardens in Tampa is an hour away on the highway whilst both Bradenton and Sarasota are just 15 minutes away. Santa Maria island with wonderful beaches is a 30 minute drive.

                                                          The house is supremely comfortable and absolutely spotless. No detail is overlooked.

                                                          We have never met the owners (John & Lynne) but would have no hesitation in giving their home our highest recommendation.

                                                          Owner's Response:

                                                          Many thanks to Mark for taking time out to write those very kind words regarding our rental home in Bradenton. The gratitude is also extended to our local manager who is diligent in ensuring cleanliness of our home to meet with guest's expectations.

                                                          We are so pleased you took advantage of all the Sarasota Bradenton area has to offer.

                                                          Thanks again

                                                          John and Lynne

                                                          A truly excellent vacation home

                                                          The GordonsWarrington, Cheshire, UK

                                                          What an excellent vacation home....full of the homely things that you meant to pack but somehow forgot. We believe this property is in an excellent location to reach the Bradenton and Sarasota beaches as well as all the Bradenton and Sarasota shopping Malls have to offer...also near to the I-75 which gets you anywhere in the state quite easily.

                                                          Everything is there as is mentioned on the website and the home is scrupulously clean throughout. Excellent pool furniture, toys and for us, the essential lanai (covered area) in which to relax, eat or just get out of the sun for a while.

                                                          We were lucky to meet John and Lynne on our final day as they had just arrived....we cannot thank them enough for their kindness and ease to deal with. Perhaps one day we will meet again as we plan to return to their house next year all being well.... for 1st time visitors there is loads to see and do in the area. Just look in the guest books in the house for comments from previous guests and there are more than enough suggestions there.

                                                          Thanks again to you both for the use of your Florida home and (trust me folks), you will be pushed to find a better home in a better location in the Bradenton and Sarasota area.

                                                          Dave & Lyn Gordon (Warrington, Cheshire, UK)

                                                          Owner's Response:

                                                          Many thanks to Dave and Lyn for taking the time to write a very thoughtful review of our home in Bradenton. In so doing you have confirmed what we have been saying for the 14 years we have been renting the house; that is the Bradenton - Sarasota area has So much to offer for that valued vacation in Florida.

                                                          We, supported by our house manager, strive to maintain the house presentation to the highest standards expected by our guests. Hence it was a pleasure to note you found the house "scrupulously clean". Yes, you are quite right that we endeavoured to provide in the house everything that guests may require (and more) to make the holiday all the more enjoyable.

                                                          It was a pleasure to meet you, all be it briefly, and hope we can welcome you back again to soak up all the area has to offer.

                                                          Thanks once again for choosing to book with us.
