Sarasota/Bradenton Area
Sarasota has a thriving theater & arts district and parallel to the coast are several islands with great beaches--among them are Longboat Key and Anna Maria Island off of Bradenton.

Circus-town heritage contrasts with cultural sophistication in a destination where beach and environmental consciousness add still more breadth to what Sarasota offers. Circus master John Ringling was among the first to discover these offerings in the early 1900s, and his impact on the town is many-ringed. Where his circus once wintered, Ringling erected an Italian palace named Cà d 'Zan, or House of John. Visitors can visit this elaborate Gilded Age mansion on the bay, part of the Ringling Estates which also includes an art museum specializing in the baroque, a circus
Cá d'Zan at the John & Mable Ringling Museum of ArtSarasota CVB
museum, gardens and a state-of-the-art theater. The lovely grounds are host to special events and festivals throughout the year.

Downtown Sarasota thrives in the afterglow of Ringling 's love for things artistic. The Theater and Arts District encompasses theaters from experimental to opera. Art galleries are rife, particularly along Main Street and Palm Avenue, and trendy restaurants give the town a reputation for fine and innovative dining. Historic and artistic pockets of antiquing, gallery-hopping and cafés crop up at Herald Square and Southside districts. Towles Court Artist Colony revitalized a bungalow neighborhood with sprightly paint jobs, galleries, studios, eateries and other artistic outlets. Circus Sarasota keeps alive the Big Top tradition and the high schools even teach circus skills and stage annual circus events.

Art takes to the street along downtown 's bayfront, home to a charter fleet, park, name luxury resorts, the striking Van Wezel Performing Arts Hall and a nearby hands-on museum.

Famed shopping center, St. Armands Circle on Lido Key, remembers the circus with plaques naming its stars. Spinning off its roundabout park, some of Sarasota 's finest clothing, home decorating and book stores radiate, interspersed with ice cream and chocolate shops, delis and sidewalk restaurants.

The beach lies steps away, part of a broken chain of sand that spreads north and south. At the north end of Lido Key, Mote Aquarium conducts important research on sharks, manatees, sea turtles and their crucial habitat. Tour the facility, where you can watch sharks and manatees in huge aquariums, pet stingless sting rays, or take a nature encounter cruise.

Across the pass to the north, Longboat Key stretches past golf and tennis resorts, restaurants with a reputation, shops and lovely manicured vistas fronting affluent homes. Anna Maria Island is next in line and it contains three separate communities.
Find romance on the shores of Siesta KeyGreg Brown
Bradenton Beach, a classic beach town, in recent years has taken steps to preserve its history and character. Holmes Beach is newer and mostly residential with small boutique resorts, a beachfront bed and breakfast, and rave-review dining. Historic Anna Maria clings tightly to its hidden beach persona, revealed in old beach cottages and easy-going seafood houses.

Anna Maria Island is close to Bradenton, the city across the Intracoastal Waterway that starts off where Sarasota ends. Across the bridge from Bradenton Beach, time-frozen Cortez safeguards it fishing village way of life with a developing maritime museum and waterfront seafood houses. Fishing and eco-tourism excursions depart from the docks along with commercial boats.

Downtown Bradenton claims its Village of the Arts, where artists live, work and sell. Around Main Street, it resurrects a district once dependent on the Manatee River. Visit the sophisticated South Florida Museum and its manatee mascot of many years. Have lunch on the river and peruse the antique shops. Across the river, Palmetto, once strictly a tomato farming and fishing town, is becoming a tourist destination with marina activity, museums, parks and restaurants worth the trip.

South of Sarasota, two bridges deliver you to the world-famous soft, white sands of Siesta Key, where lodging is as colorful and individual as the local population. So stay a while to shop and dine as casually or fine as you wish. Exclusive Casey Key to the south leads to Nokomis Beach, known for its fishing, particularly at North Jetty Park.

The South Jetty lies across the pass in Venice, shark tooth capital of the world (so called for the fossilized, prehistoric sharks teeth that wash upon the shores of Venice and Caspersen Beaches). The fossils roll up on the salt-and-pepper sands around the fishing pier and the annual Sharks ' Tooth Seafood Festival in April celebrates this dental phenomenon and the town 's bounty of fish.

Great house and pool

The house and the pool were lovely. Location is also great, close to Siesta key beach and shopping.

Eddie & Wendy Carter

Owner's reply:

A very nice review!

Shirley Labieniec

Long Island, NY

Wonderful

We recently spent 9 days at this property. We enjoyed the spacious living arrangements as there were 5 adults and there was plenty room to spread out and have private time. We also appreciated having a kitchen as we cooked many of our own meals to cut costs. The pool was enjoyable and convenient. We liked being only 15 minutes from Siesta Beach and were able to go there at various times of the day. We certainly would go back to this property in the future.

Eddie & Wendy Carter

Owner's reply:

Very nice guests who took care of our home and made the most of Sarasota!

Great stay in Sarasota

Great accommodation, comfortable, clean, spacious for our family of 5. Convenient to lots of beaches, shops and restaurants. We enjoyed the community pool and tennis courts. We will be back staying at timberwood vacation villas!

Owner's reply:

Such a great family who have stayed before and are always welcome back.

Great place to stay in Sarasota

We really enjoyed our stay in this villa. The location was great with plenty of restaurants and shopping within walking distance . The Siesta Keys beach is a short drive away as well as several Golf courses. The villa itself was well equipped,spacious and comfortable as was advertised. The "Village des Pines "area is great to walk around surrounded by beautiful scenery. We were even able to see a Mother Owl taking care of a new born who had fallen from a nest. The pool and hot tub were all very well kept. We would certainly recommend this and would stay here again. A week was too short so a longer stay is being planned for next year. Claude & Sylvia

Eddie & Wendy Carter

Owner's reply:

Its great when a guest wants to come back for longer next time! We are always trying to improve our property and each time a former guest returns they can see the upgrades!

A Pleasant Resort

We went to this resort before this year, on 2003. It was good then, and it is good now! It was a pleasure to be in--everything was in order, the rooms and furniture are spacious and comfortable, and it was convenient for us to go shopping around in and enjoying Sarasota. We also like the tennis court and swimming pool. Not every resort retains this high quality after about ten years, and Timberwoods/Village des Pines is exceptional.

Eddie & Wendy Carter

Owner's reply:

Its so nice when guests return and see the constant upgrading we do to keep this location in tip top condition.

Jeannie Williams

Love it

Love this resort and could happily stay there forever! Peaceful, quiet, but lots to do. Beautiful beaches, shops, restaurants. Resort facilities with outdoor grilling, tennis, wonderful swimming pool, all excellent. We've been there before and are now already talking about returning for the second time. Although the villas are 2 bedroomed, there'slots of space and they're very well designed. Would buy one if we had the money. Highly recommended for adults alone,or with a family. LOVE IT!!!

Eddie & Wendy Carter

Owner's reply:

Another great family who took advantage of our Disney home and then our Sarasota home to make a brilliant best of Florida experience!

Sarasota family get together

This accommodation was fantastic for us, the girls had their bedroom and bathroom and my husband, my young son and I had ours, which came in handy after our days on the beach. Our first day on the beach was well organized and you wouldn't think we'd just arrived. Beach towels, loungers,parasol,beach toys and cool box in hand we were ready, even tupperware for cool watermelon to eat at the beach. Inside the accommodation the kids found DVDs, books and tennis equipment and needless to say the kids found spongebob on the TV. We had plenty of room for a family of 5 and the washing machine, dryer and dishwasher were a godsend. I couldn't believe it when i even found ponchos for those wet days. My husband loved the garage and there still seemed plenty of room even with our rented Dodge Caravan. We visited Siesta key beach which was beautiful but busy on a weekend. We visited family most days who live in Nokomis and visited the beach there too! My daughters loved the Mall next door and the Publix supermarket did excellent fresh made-to-order takeaway sandwiches for the beach. Because we had such a hectic schedule we didn't get to use the on site facilities but they looked great. I didn't even see that many people on site, maybe the odd runner, but it was so quiet and peaceful, just the perfect way to end a busy day. But this really was a perfect place to stay, everything you needed was supplied and most of all i will miss the american people, so helpful and nice.

Eddie & Wendy Carter

Owner's reply:

So nice that the family had a great experience and also left the villa as clean as they found it!

Great Accommodation, Great Location

A real home from home. Spotlessly clean, very spacious with everthing that you need. Ideally located on the southern end of Sarasota with all amenities in easy reach. Villa is well looked after, as are the grounds of Village Des Pines and the community pool. The owner and his local representative took good care of us from booking to departure. Couldn't ask for more. We had a fantastic vacation here and cannot wait to return.

Eddie & Wendy Carter

Owner's reply:

Another returning guest who has appreciated the regular upgrades we carry out to make our location amongst the best on the Gulf Coast.

A wonderful place to enjoy your holiday

A wonderful place to enjoy your holiday. The formalities were completed for rental quickly and easily. Eddie and Wendy are very nice people and were accessible at all times. - It was a pleasure to meet you there :-). There is a local support for questions by phone or if necessary, someone will come to the house. Tami was very accommodating and took care of everything. The house offered everything. We came from Germany to Sarasota so that this was optimal. Towels, bath towels, everything was there. Wi-Fi and TV were also available. Two bedrooms, a large kitchen and a large spacious living room. The terrace offers a wonderful view of palm trees and pines. The entire village, to which the house is one was very clean and quiet. A wonderful place to relax. Pool and tennis court 2 minutes walk from the house. Clean pool area is fenced, so you can go there with small children. There were rarely more than 5 people at one time. In the local area is a shopping center, you can also reach on foot. By car, countless restaurants and the most beautiful loneliest beach can be found (Siesta Key) after 5 minutes. You are asking yourself why someone wants to lie on beaches in Europe closely together on vacation, when you have experienced this beach once. We saw a baseball game in St. Petersburg, which clearly belongs (with HotDogs) to a holiday in America. The Clearwater Marine Aquarium, we visited after an hour's drive also. No forced game with dolphins, but a rescue center for injured dolphins etc.. Very interesting and the entrance fee is money which is well spent. We felt very comfortable in Sarasota. But especially in this house, in the tranquil surroundings. Thank you so much for everything and we will come back to Sarasota and then we are again interested in booking this house from Eddie and Wendy!

Eddie & Wendy Carter

Owner's reply:

A Mother and young daughter found that our safe and friendly community is a brilliant location to enjoy the Sarasota area.

Fantastic Holiday place!

We had a great time. The villa was exactly as we had hoped/expected. It was light, clean, spacious, had washing machine, tumble dryer and dishwasher. Great location on the complex within very short waslk of pool/tennis courts. The complex is a great location being within walking distance of a mall, 45 mins drive away from outlet mall, short drive from beautiful beaches, and loads of restaurants with different style of foods from fast food to any other type of cuisine you may be looking for. Owners were easy to deal with and responded promptly to any queries we had. Our 'breakage deposit' was returned very promptly upon our return. Would use this villa again if we ever return to Sarasota. Thank you!

Eddie & Wendy Carter

Owner's reply:

Brilliant guests who got the most of the facilities we have on site. Our location means its easy to get up and down the Gulf Coast to all the great attractions and beaches.

Relaxing Accommodation

Lovely accommodation, very clean and modern. All the comforts of your own home with the added bonus of SUN, SUN and more SUN. Lovely grounds and pool near by. All in all I would recommend this to anyone visiting the Sarasota area, you are very close to the beach, attractions and a lovely big shopping centre right next door.

Eddie & Wendy Carter

Owner's reply:

Our community pool area is huge with several sun deck areas, so space is plentiful when getting some rays! 100 shops right next door, makes it a brilliant location to grab those bargains.

Me, my wife and two young children stayed at Timberwoods for a week in June 2011. We were delighted with the accommodation. It was clean, spacious with all the necessary appliances. We even had Wi-Fi provided! We had a great time in Sarasota and the accommodation added significantly to the holiday. I would recommend Crew Villas at Timberwoods to anyone. We are already planning a return in 2012.

Owner's reply:

We have some brilliant attractions close by, and since kids get bored easy, its better to be a little bit away from the beach, so there is more to do.

Everything we could have asked for

This is the first time we have ever done something like this: rent a place we've never seen from someone we've never met in a city we've never visited. But the experience was quite pleasurable. The kitchen in the home was well equipped and the accommodations were very comfortable as well as beautiful. The location was ideal to all that we wanted to see. Needless to say, we were very happy with our venture!

Great 1st stay in Sarasota

Our visit was wonderful and our stay in the villa was superb. The location was clean and spacious. It was also in a great location with convenience to shopping, the beach, and entertainment. I would recommend this location to anyone that I meet. I know they will be as comfortable and happy as I was about my visit.

Owner Supplied Testimonials
Guestbook

"The descriptions are 100% correct but the pictures do not do the estate or house justice. We would recommend this house to anyone, young and old. We were more than happy with our choice. We were greeted each morning by friendly neighbours, which made us feel very relaxed. The estate is quiet which is exactly what you want after a day on Siesta Keys beaches which are some of the finest in the world. The patio area was great for eating breakfast and planning the days events. I would strongly recommend renting a boat and exploring the keys. We rented from CB's just over the main bridge into Siesta Key. We were lucky enough to see a wild dolphin and a group of Manatees. Our favourite restaurant was Phillippi Creek Village it has fantastic seafood and fish as well as your normal chicken dishes, it's a must and not a big chain. Eddie and Wendy Carter are a pleasure to deal with. We also rang the emergency contact (because we hadn't used the lock system before on the door) whose name I cannot remember and she was brilliant to. Sarasota and Siesta Keys are amazing and this house is a perfect base for you visit. Thanks Paul, Michelle and Cameron." - Paul E., , 04/21/2011

Eddie and Wendy,

Our stay was perfect. We loved the house and will recommend it to friends. Had everything we needed. We had a wonderful time.

Review Title : 1204355 - "Comfortable villa in an excellent location, and Golfers Dream"

"This villa is perfect for a family holiday to the gulf coast.

It contained all of the equipment needed for a rental of a few weeks. Lounge/dining area was newly furnished, with comfy sofas, a large flat screen TV and wifi Internet connection. Kitchen area was well stocked and beds were comfortable (didn't use the convertibles). The villa also contained tennis equipment, beach towels, lilos and buckets & spades, so no need to fill your suitcases with any of these items.

We visited for 10 days in late October 2010, during the UK schools' mid-term break and the Timberwoods estate was quiet, as this is the end of low season The pool area had plenty of new chairs and sun loungers and the pool is a good size for both swimming and mucking around. We used one of the tennis courts and this was well maintained, but the temperature was too hot for tennis.

The biggest advantage of this villa, over others that we have rented in the Sarasota area is the location: Crescent Beach on Siesta Key (the best beach on the gulf coast) is 10 minutes drive
The main shopping mall in Sarasota is 5 minutes walk, so when the boys are playing golf, the girls can shop!!
Downtown Sarasota and St Armands Circle is 20 minutes drive
Junction 205 of the i75 is 10 minutes drive
Ellenton outlet mall is 30 minutes drive

All of the usual restaurant chains were within 10-15 minutes drive of the villa (Outback, Longhorn, Chilis, Carrabas, Bonefish Grille etc) and there were also some good locally owned restaurants. We'd recommend Turtles on Siesta Key. You could dine at the waterside inside or out. Food was good and at $100 for 4, including drinks and a bottle of wine, prices were reasonable.

The location also gave easy access to dozens of excellent golf courses within a 30 minute drive. We played some of the best in the area; University Park, The Venetian, Waterleaf, River Strand, The River Club, Oak Ford, Sarasota National and Serenoa and by booking a couple of days beforehand, on the Internet, only once did we pay over $25 per person per afternoon round, including cart (University Park was $32pp). Oak Ford was $12 for me and my son played for free, so 18 holes of golf for two was cheaper than the my golf glove. I know you won't get these silly deals in high season, but the quality of the courses in the area is second to none in Florida.

The best endorsement we can provide for this villa is that we have already booked it for the same time next year"

Hi Eddie and Wendy


The villa at Timberwoods was fantastic and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. It was good to be based in the Sarasota area and be able to get to Siesta Beach quickly and have access to so many great golf courses and shopping opportunities, my wife and daughter particular enjoyed this part of the trip. We are hoping that we will be back next year and will not be looking to stay anywhere other than Timberwoods, hopefully back in Crewhouse.


Thanks again for giving us the chance to stay in your great villa.


Peter, Linda & Stevie W 1st Nov 2010

"Dear Eddie & Wendy This was our 20th Anniversary celebration and our daughter's 16th birthday - we were so looking forward to coming! We have so enjoyed our stay in your condo and the area. Your accomodations were beyond our expectations. The kids, my husband and I all had a fantastic time. We are getting one last round of tennis, will hit the pool and on the way out to Tampa to catch our flight home, hope to dip ourselves in the wonderful Gulf waters one more time. We would most definitely come again and recommend it to others. Thanks again, Karin and family " - Karin W., Albuquerque, NM, 07/24/2010

Eddie & Wendy, thank you for letting us stay in your wonderful villa. Our holiday was perfect and our daughter made many new friends at the pool area. The beaches are just a short ride away and Siesta Key is fantastic. We will be back again. Edwin De Kwant - Holland.
