Here at Check-In, Check-Out, we’re big on girlfriend shopping getaways and golf mancations–any excuse to get folks traveling more.
If you happen to live within driving distance to Bradenton vacation rentals, here’s one more: a pristine vacation home that’s close enough to the outlets.
Think of it as your multitasking vacation (even if for just a weekend). You’ll hit the Prime Outlets in Ellenton for deep discounts on major labels like Ann Taylor and Guess Jeans one day, then spend the rest of your getaway inside the featured haven, a luxury villa nestled in the prestigious River Strand gated community.
Guys, it’s your excuse to build golfing into the trip, from Stoneybrook Golf Course to Palm Aire. You’ll also kill two birds by delivering on the promise to bring your lady on a spontaneous getaway that incorporates her love of retail.
The three-bedroom home sleeps six, and looks every bit the model home with its travertine tiles, outdoor shower, screened lanai and swimming pool, and lakefront lot. And here’s a fun fact: The home covers 3,200 square feet.
That’s plenty of square footage for your shopping bags. So make your list, check it twice, and book this vacation home already.
Valerie Moloney is your resident blogger and the Expansion Markets Editor for Citysearch.com, who oddly enough, feels panicked when asked, "What's the best place to eat in Chicago?" or her favorite, "It's my birthday. Where should we go with a party of six?" No stranger to travel--and traveling with kids--she is a young mom who ODs on the Internet when it comes to planning family trips or buying clothes. Here's hoping she finds you the vacation you deserve.
