It is situated in a lovely area and everyone we met was very friendly. Within easy reach of shopping and various eating places too. It was nice to 'chill out' by the pool after a trip out and we especially enjoyed the bbqs we had too. We look forward to possibly making a further booking for 2017! Many thanks Jean and Steve. You have a house to be proud of.. Aled and Bev x

It was like a home from home.. The kitchen was very well equipped and the villa was in excellent condition. Everything was clean, there were plenty of towels, pillows etc. The pool was amazing. It was a lovely size and very clean. We are a family of 7 (2 adults and 5 children) and we found this villa and pool to give us all a lot of space. Bradenton is conveniently located to visit Clearwater, Sarasota and St Petersburg. We dealt with Judy who is the homeowner and we found her to be very helpful and always answering any questions we had. We were very, very impressed with this villa and we will definitely visit again in the future. If you are looking for a holiday home in Bradenton then this villa is the one for you Charlyne and Paul Godfrey
