Guestbook comments from the owner

Thankyou for returning the £100 security deposit so promptly. We had a super holiday, enhanced by our stay in your beaufiful Villa, which was extremely comfortable and contained everything we needed. We were also very impressed with the service and information you provided. We would certainly recommend your Villa to Family & friends and would not hesitate in using it again in the future. Thankyou for letting us use your lovely home! AG (Weston-Super Mare). We had a fantastic time there. The pictures on the website do not do your Villa justice!! Its fantastic, and we would certainly be interested in renting again in the future. We did call your Management Company out earlier last week as there seemed to be a problem with the pool heating. They were very efficient and sorted the problem in no time. AS (Essex). It was very peaceful and exactly what we needed. My wife did not think the photo's of the pool did it justice. We hope to stay at your Villa again in the future. RR (Tamworth)

Perfect for kids!

  • 5 of 5

We had 3 adults and 2 kids, ages 6 & 8. The pool was used almost non stop when we were at the house. The house was just as pictured. The lake was closer than it appeared, which we all enjoyed. We were able to watch the birds and Ozzie visited everyday. The beach was about 25-30 minutes away. The cable was decently user friendly. The subdivision was almost silent. The house had everything we needed. We could have used a few more towels, but we swam or were at the beach several times a day. The master bathroom could use some grab bars and floors can get very slick. I would come back in a heartbeat!!!

The villa at Regal Oaks was very clean and well kept.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at the villa, and the area of Regal Oaks which is very pleasant. The view of the lake and the wild life was very relaxing. We thought it was so nice to relax on the rear porch in the evening with a glass of wine. The swimming pool was very good. There are some nice beaches that are not to far from the villa but a car is a must. Overall our stay at villa made our holiday most enjoyable.

The villa was very clean,spacious and very homely and well equipped. T

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay here. My wife and I shared the master bedroom and my children had the twin room. We all agreed the beds were very comfy to sleep in. The lounge area was relaxing enough whilst watching the TV. The pool area was perfect for a family of 4 with a nice pool also. The kitchen had all the appliances needed to make life as easy as possible also.

We didnt watch TV much due to the fairly unresponsive and confusing cable system but this wasnt really a problem as we were busy most days and evenings anyway. Overall I have recommended the villa and the area to friends and would certainly visit again.

Beautiful clean villa in lovely location

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a week stay at this lovely villa in Bradenton. Everything was perfect, we were given clear instructions and had all the information needed to ensure easy stress free arrival. The villa is very well maintained and clean, it also had everything we could possibly need - a real home from home (except this is much nicer than my house :0) The pool was lovely, overlooking the lake in a peaceful area as described. Plenty of shops and restaurants within a couple of minutes down the road, it is also a short drive to a pristine new shopping mall near Nathan Benderson Park, plus there were other malls we visited within 30 min radius. We also drove up to Orlando for a couple of theme parks, which took 1 hour 50 mins and a very easy drive.

Would highly recommend.

Superb villa in great location

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a lovely holiday in Bradenton. The superb clean villa was in a perfect location, just 20mins from the beaches on the Keys & shopping at Ellenton. Supermarkets (Publix & Walmart) & restaurants (Applebees, Outback ect) at either end of the main road too. You must try Woodys by the river at Ellenton for some great food & drink. For more upmarket (expensive) visit Sarasota & St.Armands Circle on Lido Key, 15 South for excellent Italian style food. The villa was great to return at the end of each hard day doing nothing. Plenty of room for my party of 4, could probably take 8 without feeling crowded. Pool was so warm even without the heating. The BBQ was handy for a couple of meals in. Nice & quiet around the lake & Ozzie visited most days. Lots of birds & reptiles to watch going about their business most mornings. Highly recommend a stay here. Will use again if planning to stay in this area.

Easy to book & great regular communications with Mark. A quick refund of the security deposit appreciated.
