“Wonderful experience!”

Reviewed 31 May 2016

The house was lovely ~ spacious, clean, comfortable, & convenient to everything. The pool was great. Neighborhood was quiet ~ loved looking out over the lake. Great view from the living room. This was perfect for me and my family and we had everything we needed! So much better than staying in a hotel. Would highly recommend this house.

Owner's reply: Thank you for your kind remarks. We spend some time here ourselves checking things out, freshening up and updating as required to keep everything up to five star standards. A fully equipped kitchen and a private screened pool overlooking a pond make this accommodation far superior to a hotel/motel room/suite.

“Lovely, Inviting Open-Concept Home”

Reviewed 6 Apr 2015

Loved it! Loved it! Loved it! Definitely a 5 star in my view. My husband and I rented this villa for the month of March 2015. It was clean, comfortable and well equipped. The pool overlooking the lake was beautiful and I spent a major part of my vacation enjoying it. The grounds were well maintained and Pauline, the property manager, was a pleasure to talk to and was always available for any questions or concerns. I would have loved to return to this house in 2016 but it was already booked. Thank you so much for a wonderful, memorable vacation.

Owner's reply: Thank you for your kind remarks. We strive to maintain our house in tip top shape, and it shows. We are sorry that it was already booked for next March, but reservation requests are coming in earlier all of the time now, especially for high season dates.

We rented this home for the month of March this year being 2014. It was wonderful, the owners take great pride in ensuring that any question that we had we answered right away, either by the owners or the property management team. The home is located in a lovely subdivision, close to everything, be it golfing, beaches, good restaurants, or baseball. We are golfers and we were able to find lots of affordable courses to play. Everyone that we met were very friendly and helpful. Many of the neighbours either live there full-time or for 6 months of the year. The area was quiet and very relaxing. The owners take great pride in up-dating furniture and the like which makes this house a home. Sitting at the pool and overlooking the lake is very picturesque. It was the first time that we had visited the Bradenton area but found that it had everything that we enjoy. Thanks Fred and Donna, we took good care of your home and will return.

Owner's reply: Thank you for your kind words. We update our properties regularly, and we strive for five star ratings. We look forward to your return!

Fred thank you for renting us your wonderful home, we loved being there, my husband and I really enjoyed our three weeks in this beautifully decorated and clean home. The pool was great, but we could only use it twice, due to the very cold weather, even with it heated. This January was a low record breaker . The neighbor is a quiet one, with all well kept homes. Would love to come back next year. A couple of suggestion for renting to older people or ones with disabilities . When replacing toilets in the future to the higher version type, hand rails in the showers. Hand rail on the steps into the pool, otherwise a great home for everyone. Oh my husband has a suggestion a couple of recliners, just because he missed his, maybe in the bedroom, or chairs with ottomans. Whenever anything needed attention Fred was right there or found someone to take care of the problem. Thank you again!

“Wonderful experience”

Reviewed 28 Jan 2013

We just returned home from a week of renting this home. As one person said, the photos do not do it is a super nice place, had everything we needed for a very comfortable week. We rented it very last minute (3 days before arriving). The owner and property manager were very accommodating and wonderful at contacting us back when I emailed or phoned. We really enjoyed the pool and the master bedroom with the HUGE bathroom attached. The view of the lake is beautiful and the neighborhood is quiet. We would definitely rent this one again if we have the opportunity.

Owner's reply: We take our own photos with a normal lens. Some property owners use professional photographers and/or a wide angle lens which distort the photos making the spaces appear larger than they are. We spend some time here ourselves, and when we do we are always cleaning and improving. The great room and master bedroom views overlooking the caged pool and the lake view beyond are truly memorable.

This is a beautiful home we very much enjoyed our family vacation. We had a party of 8 and the house accommodated us beautifully. I would recommend this home to anybody, and hope to visit again real soon!

“Worth Returning Again & Again”

Reviewed 4 Jul 2011

We headed to Florida for a Family Reunion. My husbands brother lives in the area so the home was in a perfect location. We were minutes from the hiway - 15 minutes from the Outlet Mall *important for us ladies. The home itself was clean & perfect. One level - 4 bedrooms - full linens - clean - nothing less to say. The heated pool service was great for our Senior Mother. We sat many hours by the pool looking out at the lake behind us - Tranquility. We walked the neighbourhood & again the services were pretty local to our needs. My husband wants to return again to this home with our own family to share time with them. Looking for a home - this one is wonderful & the communication between Fred & Pauline was personal and respectful. Thank you for sharing your home & we look forward to Florida again.

“Repeat Visit A Must!!!”

Just a note to say how much we enjoyed our stay at your Bradenton home. We were there before we went to St. Pete Beach for our family reunion. We truly did not want to leave your home. It was convenient to stores and everything. The pictures don't do it justice. It is simply beautiful. There was plenty of room for all of us. My granddaughter loved the pool and the pool toys that were at the house, as did the rest of us. We have been telling our friends about it and I am sure we will make a return trip. The rental company was very helpful when we called to report anything (i.e. we couldn't get the garage door to open). They sent someone over to fix it right away. Again, thanks for making your house available to us. Hope to contact you again soon.

“Good Value”

Reviewed 22 Mar 2010

Had an enjoyable 1 week stay at this Bradenton property. Th house is very clean and spacious. We had 7 people staying in the house and it did not feel crowded at all. The only complaint I would have is not having control of the heated pool. We paid the extra $100 for the pool to be heated and it was definitly the point that you could not get in if you left the pool cover on. I would definiltly consider renting this property again.
