Why Philippa Oakley chose Bradenton

We traveled to Sarasota and the Bradenton area over 10 years ago and kept coming back as we could find no other place quite like it. As a family of four, with young children, we needed a holiday home that had something for everyone. We certainly found it here. Rosedale is a quiet and safe gated golf and tennis community and the villa is directly on the golf course although very private. The location is great, just off the I75, so there is quick and easy access either North or South, to downtown Sarasota for great shopping, restaurants and bars, museums and theatre, and North to the beautiful beaches of Anna Maria Island. Nearby there is the lovely community of Lakewood Ranch with another superb golf and tennis facilities open to the publi. Main Street is great for shopping and bars and restaurants. There is so much to see and do that we always run out of time trying to fit everything in, but it's so nice to be able to come back to the peace and tranquility that this villa has to offer.

What makes this villa unique

Our villa really is home from home. From the moment you enter you will feel immediately relaxed and at ease. With it's peaceful location overlooking the golf course and with lake view you can choose to do as much or as little as you like. Having visited many villas in the past we understand the frustrations that parents have when holidaying so we have ensured that the villa is totally child friendly. Our days are packed with playing golf, lots of tennis, visiting theme parks in Tampa and day trips to Orlando. With beaches closeby, we often spend the morning on the beach, lunch at St Armands Circle and a lazy afternoon by the pool. Friends and family love to come and visit, especially grandparents who are keen golfers, as there are so many different golf courses nearby such as Tara, Peridia and University Park, which are all open to the public. For keen golfers you'll be spoilt for choice!

Guestbook comments from the manager

My wife and I are Canadian snowbirds, retired CPA now 10 years and have wintered in Florida for this past decade for 3 or four months per year.

We have spent time in condos on Siesta Key and at Rosedale in single family homes and we love Rosedale. Besides being a quiet friendly gated golfing community, we enjoy the grounds, the club and the tennis - it's all convenient.

Our experience renting your home last year for 4 months was superb. You were efficient and businesslike to deal with, presented the house in a clean and organized manner with all the amenities of a home which is lived in, and you were readily available by email for the minor issues you promptly resolved.

The back screened lanai presents a wonderful view of the fairway, is private and inviting - just off the kitchen and living room. The home is well appointed and the phone, internet and tv made us feel right at home immediately. Your rental rates were fair and reasonable and we are excited to be returning for next winter!

Dealing directly with you was better than going through a real estate agent and I trust you completely.

Fabulous Villa

  • 5 of 5

We had the pleasure of staying at Philippa and Michael's villa for the second time in May. Our expectations were high having previously holidayed there and we were not disappointed. Once again the booking process and entry details were seamless. The villa was spotless when we arrived, we felt instantly relaxed and at home. The surrounding area is very well maintained and extremely peaceful. The people we met on our morning walks/runs were so friendly. The pool area is perfect for outside dining (we didn't eat one meal inside!) and for relaxing in the sunshine. Everything is provided to a high standard from beach chairs to foods mixers - anything you need is there. The villa is perfectly located close to Lakewood Ranch, UTC Mall, Siesta Key Beach, Ellenton Factory Outlets and numerous wonderful restaurants. We enjoyed ourselves so much that we've already booked for 2017! Thank you to Philippa and Michael for providing such excellent accommodation.

Super property, great location....

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely loved this villa, it was a pleasure to stay at, the location is great and we could not have asked for more.

The villa itself is very well presented and has everything you could possibly need, it was very clean, we had no issues whatsoever.

Pool area is great, big enough for us all to enjoy, it is relatively private with only the occasional golfer hitting a ball your way!!

We used the bikes every day to get to the gym, all the locals are very friendly. Liked the fact that it was a gated community, it felt really safe and secure especially when our teenage daughter and her friend decided to explore.

Local shopping and beaches are great, also plenty of restaurants and a supermarket just a few minutes away.

We would definitely stay here again if we return to the area.

Owners great to deal with, overall a very pleasant experience!

Nearest Airport
7 Miles
Sarasota/Bradenton Airport
Car: necessary

This luxury family villa is set within beautiful Rosedale Golf and Country Club, just off I75, on the edge of Lakewood Ranch and an easy drive to downtown Sarasota (20 minutes).

The villa is only 25 minutes to Anna Maria Island, Gulf Coast Beaches and St Armands Circle and 90 minutes from Orlando.

Tampa Airport is an easy 45 minutes away and Bradenton/Sarasota Airport is just 20 minutes.

There are over 45 golf courses locally, including semi private and public courses nearby. With the challenging Rosedale, Tara and University Park golf courses, you'll be spoilt for choice.

There is great shopping nearby with the Ellenton Prime Outlet only 10 miutes drive north featuring 100 shops offering huge discounts!

Overall a great place for golfing, tennis, beaches, shopping, theme parks and the wider Sarasota and Tampa area. With Orlando attractions such as Disney World, MGM Studio and Sea World only 90 minutes away there is something for everyone.

Golf: 'Stop Here and Smell the Roses' - Pay as you Play Golf .

Rosedale provides superb facilities for everyone . . . a wide array of activities for members and guests to enjoy.

Championship Golf . . .Championship Living

Winding its way among sparkling lakes and woodlands, the 18-hole championship golf course offers both challenge and breathtaking scenery to the lucky few who come to call Rosedale home.

Noted golf course architect Ted McAnlis, a former Fazio team member, has succeeded brilliantly in his quest to keep the surroundings intact, imaginatively weaving fairways and greens through existing Florida forest. While water and sand come frequently into play, some say the setting itself is the greatest pleasure of all. There's an 8-acre driving range for the required time on the practice tee. Plus a chipping and putting green for fine tuning strokes.
