GREAT SUMMER RATES INCLUDE FULL CLUB MEMBERSHIP FOR GOLF/TENNIS
A few years ago I came to River Strand for a vacation with a friend who is a real estate agent in Southern California. She fell in love with its beautiful facilities and resort-like life style and the next day bought two condos. At the time I lived in New Jersey recently retired from thirty years as a Broadway stage manager. Finally this year I sold my house near Princeton and moved to Fort Meyers - to be near friends. All that time I had been thinking about River Strand and recently I was able to purchase this condo. The pictures you see were taken by real estate people after renovations done by the seller. By the time you arrive, I will have had the chance to add amenities and accessories to make the condo even more comfortable and homey. One other thing. On that trip a few years ago, I picked up a golf club for the first time after watching the game played on TV. That doesn’t look too hard, I thought. Soo, if you play the wonderful 27 holes at River Strand and run out of balls just check any deep rough - I have contributed a considerable number of balls there on subsequent visits. I look forward to meeting you and will do my best to make your stay enjoyable.
Jay purchased this Condo in 2016
Why Jay chose Bradenton
Having rented at River Strand myself I am confident that the excellence of its facilities and the variety of its surrounding activities will satisfy your every expectation. However, it is my goal as your host to go above and beyond that - to make your stay as close to perfect as possible by providing whatever your need or want: personal recommendations for massage therapists, babysitters, hair and nail salons, tour guides, boat rentals, restaurants, gas stations, super markets,, doctors, dentists, hospitals and more. I promise to be available to answer any question you may have. and to respond promptly to your requests.
What makes this Condo unique
Resort hotels are great but can't compare with having a cozy home in a country club community - a home away from home - with multiple rooms, a kitchen and a veranda on which to watch the sunset. You don't pay extra for internet, it's included. You don't have to rent bikes. They're included. You don't have to pay to park. It's included. And the folks you will meet are a wonderful mix of travelers and locals who have villas or houses in River strand.
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date. 50% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date.
Talk about feeling like you're at home! Every comfort that you could want; unbelievable view of lake (with "Elmer" the alligator sightings) and golf course; very comfortable bed; spotlessly clean; decorator-type furnishings; TV in every room; DVD player; washer/dryer'; dining room table for 6; breakfast area table for 4; storage shed with 2 bicycles, grocery cart, and 2 beach chairs. The owner, Jay, was extremely accommodating with information and supplementing anything that the place needed. Definitely a place that we will re-visit!!!!!
Wonderful place to stay
Jay was great to work with & very accommodating/flexible with our dates. We sold our home & needed a place to stay for a couple months before our new house was built. Condo was very comfortable with gorgeous views of wildlife, lake & golf course.
Awesome vacation experience at River Strand Golf & Country Club
Over the month of December 2017 I had the opportunity at staying in Jay's condo in the River Strand Golf & Country club gated community. It was an awesome expereince and highly recommend it. Jay's place was clean, well kept, had all the items I needed, included access to the golf club and a beautiful view of the 7th fairway, plus an incredible view of a pond with tons of wildlife.
As a community, River Strand was awesome!! People were very friendly, was easy to get games of golf on my own and connect with some great guys (made several new friends). The pool and tiki bar is wonderful and the actual golf course (3 different 9 holes) was sufficiently challenging. And, there is lots to do besides just golf e.g. tennis, dinning experiences, nature walks, etc. River Strand has easy access from either Tampa airport or Sarasota airport ... close to attractions, shopping, etc.
All in all a great month and thanks to Jay (for hosting his condo), plus all the great staff at River Strand Golf club.
Owner was most accommodating. Everything is in the unit that you could possibly need. Great furnishings and clean. View from the screened lanai is fantastic (water and golf view). Will be coming back in April for another month and hopefully again in the fall. Highly recommend this property. Golf and amenities at the club are great. Met some really great people during our stay as well.

VERY VERY Impressed!!
We had stayed here for 2 months while our house was being built. Jay was SO accommodating to my family. The condo was absolutely beautiful! Very clean & updated appliances with granite countertops. LOVED sitting on the lanai which over looks the lake & watching the colorful sunsets just about every night. I would give staying at Jay's condo 5 stars!!!! He definitely made it stress free while staying here while our house was being built. THANK YOU SO MUCH JAY!!!
Nicely appointed, great views.
The River Strand development is a great place to vacation. With a large swimming pool, a resistance pool and Tiki bar alongside the well equipped exercise/fitness saloon, it's a great place to work-out or relax. The pro-golf shop staff are super helpful and the 27 hole golf course is always a challenge, however often you play it. There are a number of satellite swimming pools where you can always go if you want a quieter swim as they seem to be hardly used.
The apartment has great views of the lake, from the kitchen, lounge and balcony. You can watch the golfers tee off from the other side of the lake or marvel at the color of sunsets in the evenings. It is comfortable and tastefully decorated and well equipped, really wanting for nothing. We found the owner, Jay to be most considerate and helpful during our stay! You can't really go wrong staying here.

Ten minutes south towards Sarasota is the largest shopping mall in southwest Florida, Ten minutes north is an outlet center. A half hour north is Tampa, Florida's third largest city.
