Wonderful Family Vacation

July 20, 2016

We just arrived home from a wonderful week at this beautiful villa! After much time spent trying to find the perfect place to accommodate my family and extended family (whose ages and needs are widespread) this absolutely meet all expectations and beyond! Mary was very responsive to emails and made booking a breeze! The neighborhood was peaceful and offered an abundance of wildlife that I was not expecting. My children thoroughly enjoyed all the different (large) birds that paraded thorough the yard and flew over the lake/pond, as well as the frogs and lizards they discovered around the outside of the enclosed pool area. Getting to all the area has to offer was very easy. Aldi, Publix, Walmart, CVS, all are within quick driving distance, and the beaches on Anna Maria Island are not much further. We enjoyed exploring and visiting with family that lived in the area, but I think my children would have been content to stay in the villa the entire week playing in the pool! That was vacation enough for them, and the pool was their own little world! I also appreciated all of the extras the house has to offer, like pool and beach toys, pack and plays, bed railings and baby toys, just to name a few. The home was very spacious, and allowed all 10 of us to spread out or come together easily. It was also perfect for my elderly grandmother, who was able to make her way easily through the house due to no steps, and a walk in shower. The small step to the enclosed pool area was not difficult either. I cannot recommend this villa highly enough, and we look forward to the possibility of renting this home in the future!

Fred Ebeling

Owner's reply:

Thank you for your kind remarks. We agree with the children; we are happy to just stay home and hang out in the pool area. It is so quiet and private, and the long pond attracts all kinds of interesting birds.
In the last couple of years a variety of grocers and pharmacies have opened at the big intersection about six blocks away, which is very convenient.

My wife and I, together with two friends stayed at this property last year and liked it so much that we decided to stay here again in 2015, but this time for three weeks. The property is spacious, beautifully decorated and furnished, and has all of the facilities and equipment that you would expect to find in such a beautiful home. The study was a bonus, with a beautiful desk, TV and internet facilities and sumptuous carpets that were echoed throughout the villa. The view from the large pool is one of the best that we have experienced in Florida, overlooking a tranquil lake populated with an abundance of wildlife that we never tired of watching. We occupied the master bedroom with its very large bathroom with large shower and walk in wardrobe and our friends had a bedroom diagonally opposite and because of the scale of the villa we each enjoyed our own absolute privacy. The villa is situated in a gated community and the area is generally very peaceful and quiet and shrubbery on either side of the pool enclosure means that it is quite secluded. We requested pool heating which was absolute bliss. To find fault is difficult, but the lack of a remote control (which was available last year) for the main gates was a nuisance and meant that it was necessary to pull the car up close to a keypad to tap in the code in the dark and sometimes in heavy Florida downpours. Poolside sunbeds that will lay flat, and a new kettle would be a recommendation but other than that all was perfect.

Fred Ebeling

Owner's reply:

Thank you for your kind remarks.
Sorry that the remote controls were not put out for your use.

A group of six stayed in this beautiful home. There was nothing more to ask for. It was all there. The furniture,the bedding,the dishes,the pool,the weather. Pauline was wonderful. So was the next door neighbor. We would have liked to rent it for a longer time next year but it was already rented.It was a ten to all of us

This home was a great choice for our family vacation. The rental process was easy, Pauline was very good to work with. We had plenty of room for everyone. We spent the majority of the daytime around the pool. It was close to the ball parks which the guys took advantage of. Not quite so handy for beaches, but we did make the trip a couple times. We would highly recommend this home and would consider using it again in the future.

Fred Ebeling

Owner's reply:

This is a newer home in a newer neighborhood with 10' ceilings, large private pool overlooking a long pond, and five bedrooms/four bathrooms. Many fine golf courses are nearby, and the new regional mall is one exit down the interstate and the outlet mall is two exits up the interstate. It is 20-30 minutes from the beaches, depending upon time of day and traffic. Anything near the beach typically will be older and smaller, and significantly more expensive. Location comes with a price.

Fabulous Villa

October 25, 2014

We stayed at this villa for two weeks with friends and would highly recommend it to anyone who is looking to stay in a spacious luxurious property. Decor, furnishings and equipment could not be faulted. This property was immaculate, tastefully decorated and spotlessly clean. The position on the lake was perfect and being in a gated community helped to make it very peaceful. The pool was one of the cleanest that we have come accross. The only minor downside of the villa was that there was was no helpful house notes, so finding out how everything worked and what everything was for, became a bit of a challenge. A remote control found in the kitchen had been opening and closing the garage door a few times before we realised it and it was about day 3 of our holiday before we realised that another remote control in the kitchen could be used to open the gates to the estate. Those niggles aside, we could not fault either the villa or the agent (Pauline) who was very helpful and attentive. We had a great holiday at this beautiful villa.

Everything about this home and our vacation in Bradenton was without a doubt the best vacation my family has ever taken. The home was gorgeous, but felt homey. We were in the middle of everything, whether it be the gulf, fishing, dining, shopping it was all there at our fingertips. From the time we made our reservations until we left we felt welcome. It was the vacation of our dreams come true. This was much more than five stars. Thank you to the Ebelings and thank you Vacation Home Rentals.

Two couples stayed at this home for a two week period. We found our stay very relaxing and comfortable. The home is located in a quiet and well kept neighbourhood. The heated pool was delightful and quite private. There was lots of room inside the tastefully decorated home to stretch out and feel at home. It was well equipped and clean so our stay was a pleasure. We had a small issue with the screening on the lanai and it was dealt with the next day. The property manager was helpful and approachable....thank's Pauline. I can speak for all of us that everyone enjoyed our stay there. Thank you to the owners for sharing this lovely home.

Thank you for providing a great base of operations for our family reunion / getaway in Florida. We all thoroughly enjoyed our stay. From the central location, proximity to stores and attractions, and customer service from the management company (thanks Pauline), we loved every minute at Mandalay 2. We have rented homes and condos while vacationing in the past, and have never experienced a better equipped/stocked home than this one (in terms of dishes, towels and linens, small appliances, chairs, pool accesories, etc.). We were able to meet all our needs, and because everything was so convenient, we actually only ate one meal out. Spending time with family in the comfort of our own home away from home was much better than meeting in restaurants nearby. The neighbours we met while taking morning walks were all very friendly. It was fun to watch the variety of birds, turtles and geckos in the pond behind the house. The only thing that could have been a little better would be a supply of basic goods like toilet paper, paper towels, garbage bags, etc. We had to go find these items right away. Not a really big deal, but something that everybody thought was lacking a little. Thanks to Chris next door for coming over to fix a minor air conditioner issue also. He introduced himself the first day we were there, and it was great knowing we had support nearby, if required. Thank you Fred and Mrs E. for sharing your wonderful home.

The home was huge and beautifully decorated, and very clean. Kitchen was spacious and equipped with everything you could need. Bedrooms were large, beds were very comfy. Closets were stocked with lots of linens, including towels for the pool. Nice laundry facilities. Pool was warm, and the outside area overlooking the lake was great for entertaining. Pictures do not do the house justice. We felt very much at home. The house was central to great shopping and restaurants and easy to get around. We had a wonderful vacation.It was the first time we had rented a home for a week, it was a great experience... a week was definitely not long enough. Would love to do it again. Thank you to Pauline for answering any questions and to Fred and Donna, you have a beautiful home. Thank you for sharing it with us.

A fantastic house. Although not on the beach the pool and patio with lake view more than compensate. Easy to get to off I75 and close to shopping and restaurants. Good golf within 15 minutes. We hope to return next year.

Fred Ebeling

Owner's reply:

Thank you for your kind review. We agree with you regarding our lakeside heated pool vs. the beach. Unless one is directly on the beach (very high rent), you need to drive and tote your stuff there. In the winter months the Gulf water is freezing cold, and you have to use the local concessions and public restroom facilities. We are close to a number of restaurants, the outlet mall (SOF, Brooks, Polo, etc.) is two exits away on I-75, and there are ten golf coures nearby. We are happy that our house fit your needs nicely, and hope to host your return visit. Thanks again!

We LOVED this house!! The pictures don't do it justice. The house was very clean and the furnishings are beautiful. Looked like everything was brand new. There was more than enough room for four single women who are used to their own space. Bigger families or groups would have plenty of room, too. We loved each having our own bathroom and bedroom and our own part of the house. Plenty of space to go and get away if we needed to. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook a few meals in. The pool area was beautiful. The pool itself was large and the there was plenty of deck space for hanging out or eating outside. There was interesting wildlife out around the lake. The neighborhood was quiet and we felt perfectly safe. The location was great. Convenient to several beautiful beaches, lots of shopping and close to grocery stores, Wal-Mart, etc. Lots of stuff to do in the area. The owners were easy to work with and we appreciate them letting us use their home for a week!!
