Reviews for this vacation villa rental in Bradenton, Florida

This was a large 2 bed 1 bath home, which is originally the owner's apartment. She is a modern artist and the furnishings are definitely eclectic.. When I first arrived the place was dusty and dirty and she came the next day with a helper to clean. It wasn't a good start but she did try to make it right. They bring Panera breads and sweets twice a week and that is a nice touch. She also had wine and fruit waiting for us on our first day, The lanai was great with a view of the Manatee River even though you are not actually river front. She does need more comfortable furnishings i.e. couch and club chair. There really was no living room chair per se, The couch opened to a sleeper but had no arms and was not comfortable. The owner does everything she can to try to please you. If the furniture was comfortable she would get 5 stars. The bed was a queen and quite comfortable. She does take pets and that was a plus for us. No washer and dryer and that was a pain.. They clean the kitchen and bathroom every Saturday and bring fresh linens and towels. There is no outlet in the bathroom so bring extension cords. When my son and family came down she let them use the new apartment she was just finishing free of charge since the bed in the 2nd. bedroom was quite small. A very nice gesture on her part.

We were in town for a wedding that was right downtown Bradenton. The location was great. We didn't stay at the Motel that's described. We stayed at the house around the corner. I think it's a newly acquired property because you can still smell the fresh paint and it was sparsely furnished. Our son decided to stay with us so she brought in a cot. She was very nice and accommodating. I would book again with her.

We booked the St. John's/Charles suite at the "River House" for the month of February 2016. We made our initial payment on 2-25-15 and our final payment on 1-13-16. We paid more than $2800 in total. When we arrived for check-in on 2-1-16 we were told our suite was double-booked and were shown a different property where we were to stay. It was a small house, with a bed frame with no mattress in the bedroom, one bar stool in the kitchen, no window treatments save for a blind in the bedroom, and a wicker chair and small table and chair in the living room. That's it. It was also a block further from the river than the River House and had only a slight view of the river. It was on a nondescript lot with none of the amenities of the River House. After some discussion, my wife and I agreed we did not want to stay at this new address due to its location and the shape it was in, and we told the owner so. The owner agreed to refund all our money as per the contract we had with her. She said she would refund roughly half our money on the spot via PayPal and appeared to do so using her smart phone. She followed up this "transaction" with a confirming e-mail and said she would refund the other half of our money "soon." Assuming she made the first payment to us when she was fiddling with her phone, I called her at about 7:45 that same evening to ask when we could expect the other half. She told me to stop "riding her ass" and hung up. (This is the only time we contacted her after meeting her earlier that afternoon.) We called Bradenton police the next morning and were told our issue was a civil one and not a criminal one. The officer advised us not to contact the owner any more and we haven't. The officer also told us that the street where the new address was was a little sketchy and it's probably good we didn't stay there. We did manage to find a new place to stay on our own, which is a very nice B&B in Lakeland. Long story short, the owner has not refunded any of our money and we have PayPal and Visa trying to get it back for us. We live in Indiana and are to return home at the end of February, so we don't have time to deal with a lawsuit and don't have money to pay an attorney. So we'll enjoy the next two weeks here in Lakeland and let PayPal and Visa take care of the rest. Just a shame it had to come to this. Note: I'm giving this property a one-star rating only because the site would not let me choose zero stars.

Absolutely delightful! Kim is the perfect Inkeeper. Clean rooms, tranquil setting. The enclosed backyard is perfect for relaxing in one of the cozy nooks, bird watching in their natural habitat, or grilling dinner. My little Westie Max is made to feel welcomed also. We enjoy walking the neighborhood, going down to the Bay, or simply visiting with Kim or the other guests. I'm a repeat guest and looking forward to my next visit.

very disappointed, not as shown at all. Area is shabby and dangerous except for the very block this rental sits on. Furniture is shabby in all units and there is NO stove in the kitchen, only a hot plate and microwave. Grounds are nice but one of the renters had to clean the pool before it could be used. Access to the river is a block away and it is not a beach or suitable for fishing just a small area you can stand and look at the river. Neighborhood is not suitable for walking or children playing. I do not recommend this to families and altho Kim is a really nice person she does not provide maid service just clean linens once a week left outside you door. We left a month early and won't return. Kim I am sorry if my review upsets you but I have to be honest and warn others so they are prepared for what they are getting for their money. We learned a very expensive lesson the hard way.

We stayed in the studio room. It was quiet, clean and he fresh fruit and bagels were a real treat for breakfast. We took our lawn chairs and sat down by the river to watch the birds and boats and feel the cool breeze off the water...just heavenly. The grounds are so pretty with tropical plants and the pool was snuggled in amongest flowers and palms. We had a great week for a great price and will come back again.

This was a lovely, well maintained home. In reality the pictures did not do it justice. The house is lmmaculate and has every possible amenity.The neighborhood is quiet and close to everything, We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
