Guestbook comments from the owner

We were completely in awe of the property on our arrival , This being our seventh trip to the sunshine state, your property is by far the most luxurious we have stayed in. (Mr/ Mrs M Curphey.Oct 04)

We found the villa very relaxing and the villa ideal for our needs, the heated pool was great (Mr.G.Slater Jan 05) Just wanted to say you have a lovely house and ..we had a great time. (Mr C. Bendall ..Mar 05)

Thank you for letting us stay in your villa. It is a beautiful house in a lovely, peaceful setting. We enjoyed seeing the wildlife that came right up to the villa! I think we all agreed that your home is the best we have ever stayed in, and we have been renting villas from holiday-rentals for quite a while now. The photos on your site do not do it justice! (Laura,Cliff & Family jul 06)

Your villa was wonderful, we really enjoyed staying there it was most relaxing The view of the lake was amazing. Once again Thanks, I will certainly recommend your villa Donna Clark 18th oct 07

Hello Diane.

Just a short note to say a heart felt "Thank You" for renting us your wonderful house for the past couple of weeks. When we opened the door for the first time, Wendy and I both said "Wow!". The presentation on arrival was excellent.

The property is far better than portrayed in the photographs. It really felt a home from home and contributed greatly to what was a wonderful holiday. The Bradenton/Sarasota area is so nice and peaceful at this time of year, even the beaches were mostly empty. The weather was glorious for the whole time we were there.

We have already starting saving for the next visit! Once again, many thanks.

Best regards,

Wendy & Chris

Owner's Response: thanks to chris and wendy for their nice comments regarding our villa. As owners we have furnishished our villa with quality furniture, bedding etc that our renters would appreciate , when we go to the villa ourselves new things are added, and on a yearly basis tableware, saucepans and bedding are always replaced. Our manageress is very hard working and keeps our villa immaculate and all credit for these lovely comments is due to her as well.

For those who are cautious to wire money, please put your mind to rest. It is the real deal. We got the code via our rental packet. When we arrived and gained access, we could not have been more excited. The house is very roomy. We loved that the master bedroom was not near the 2nd and 3rd bedrooms. The kitchen was huge. We had all of our family over for Christmas dinner. They even had beach chairs for when we did go to the beach. The pool and the sitting area around the pool was great. My mother-in-law loves birds. She could watch the blue herons on the lake. Diane is wonderful to work with and she answered all my questions promptly.

We are a family of four and stayed here for a week in October 2014 to recover from a week doing the parks. The villa is lovely, the fixtures and fittings are of very high quality, everything is spotlessly clean and it is located in a quiet residential estate overlooking a large lake within easy reach of the stunning beaches on the gulf coast. It really was exactly what we were looking for.

The owners clearly take great pride in their property and it has a really nice homely feel. The pool area gets the sun all day long and there is constant entertainment provided by the range of wildlife in and around the lake.

Diane was a pleasure to deal with throughout the booking process and the run up to our stay.

If you are looking for a really nice, well located villa you have just found it.

We have just booked a return visit in 2015 - can't wait!!

We had the pleasure of staying in this wonderful Villa in September. As soon as we arrived it felt like home, so clean, quiet, spacious and perfectly equipped. We spent many hours sat around the pool watching the wildlife around the lake - so realxing.

The booking process was very easy and the owner is a delight to deal with.

Can thoroughly recommend staying here. Brilliantly located and easy to get to restaurants, shops and beaches.

We can't wait to return!

Tranquil setting

  • 5 of 5

This home was beautifully furnished and equipped with everything you needed from pool toys to bottle opener. Every meal from breakfast to supper was eaten outside looking out onto the lake. The wildlife around the lake we could watch all day osprey's diving for fish, ibis wading for the same. When we arrived the home was spotless and clean, we had a slight problem during our stay with the cistern in the guest bathroom and the maintenance team arrived at the home within the hour (wow wouldn't get that in England) We have stayed in many homes in Florida and this one is right up there with the best of them. At the time of writing this review for some reason I couldn't rate is but I would give this home five stars

Owner's Response: Thank you Sue and Dave for your lovely review, we chose our furnishings for the simple reason everything is similar to my home in england.. even down to the crystal chanderleirs I agree it is so nice to sit outside to eat meals as there is so much happening on the lake with all the birds you just do not want to miss anything... I am sorry you had the problem with the toilet and glad it got fixed so quickly, my management company are "so on the ball" i couldn't wish for a better team..
