'We returned home from Florida on Tuesday. Just wanted to e-mail and thank you for sharing your fantastic villa. We have had a fabulous holiday, the villa was a perfect base for us, we drove to Cypress Gardens, Busch Gardens, Adventure Island, Clearwater Beach Island, St John's Pass near Treasure Island, Anna Maria Island (lovely Pier). We liked Bradenton very much, the people are so well mannered and polite, we've a lot to learn from the Americans especially when it comes to customer service. I've written all comments in your visitors book, but wanted to let you know that the villa made our holiday for us. It's so tastefully decorated and furnished, we all enjoyed the pool, I enjoyed just sitting outside and being warm even in the rain. You've equipped the villa really well for visitors, there was everything we needed and the files for Guests and Information were particularly helpful. There's so much space inside the villa, it's been perfect for us all. '
We have stayed in the Bradenton area for the last 5 years. This vacation home had everything we needed to enjoy our spring break. The home is beautiful and very spacious! The pool was very large and the temperature was prefect for the whole week! The hot tub was used often and we enjoyed every minute. The location was ideal, close to everything. Communication with the owner went well and he was very friendly. We really enjoyed our trip and appreciate the use of your home! You will not be disappointed staying in this villa.
We have stayed in Florida several times but this was our first visit to Bradenton.
The villa was very nice, lots of room for everyone to spread out. The pool was great and was a big hit with the children, unfortunately the spa didn't work, we contacted the management office but nothing was done, it didn't bother us too much as the pool was the main interest. Also had a problem with the tv in the main room, no signal for five out of seven days, rang the office and a nice lady told my husband what to do, it still didn't work but in the end we decided not to worry about it as we didn't use the tv much anyway but it would have been nice if someone came to sort out these issues without us having to make a fuss first. other than that the facilities were very good. We were a little disapointed that you had to pay extra to use the playstation, things like that are usually included- we didn't bother but with three children, no tv and no playstation it could have been a problem if the weather was bad and we couldn't use the pool. However the saving grace for my teenagers was that the villa had free wi-fi so they could stay in touch with their friends, it was also very hand to be able to look up address's etc
The area was very friendly and felt safe, lots of things to do nearby, the beaches were fantastic but most of all I would recommend that visitors go to Yoders Amish Village in Sarasota for amazing food and a great gift shop!
This was our first time to this part of Florida and we were not disappointed the villa was spacious and well equipped the pool and the spa were so big. The villa is located about 20 mins from the beaches, Anna Maria Island is a must place to visit. The villa has everything you need to make your holiday a memorable experience would stay here again and will recommend to friends
We just returned from this lovely home and I can assure all that they would enjoy this home. The pool and spa area is fantastic. We spent alot of time swimming. The pool table was also used regularly. The screened in lani area and the large table with lots of seating was nice to eat meals outside. The master bedroom is large, lots of closet space and a huge shower. The home is clean and the it did not take long to feel at home. The home is convienent to restaurants, shopping and not too far from the beaches. I would rent this property again.
The villa is ideally positioned for a wide range of activities. For golfers there is an abundance of courses, 6 at championship level within a 20 minute drive. It is only a 15 minutes by car to Anna Maria Island, Gulf Beaches, Sarasota City and Siesta Key. Tampa and Busch Gardens theme park are 40 minutes away. Guests can also make use of a large, heated community pool, basketball courts, floodlit tennis and volleyball courts. A children’s play area is only 5 minutes walk from the villa.
