We have just returned from a couple of weeks at this wonderful condo and cannot talk too highly of our experience.
From the very start Pam and Ian were great to deal with offering helpful suggestions and making our life easier.
My step son and I played golf most days , walking later in the afternoon... and what a great golf course for all abilities. We are both single figure handicaps but still found the back tees a great challenge.Pro shop and all at Tara were really friendly and we felt very much at home.
The condo has just about everything you would need and we were extremely comfortable.
We only had to walk down the stairs to the tennis court and then a few extra yards to the swimming pool, both of which were terrific.
We have stayed in a number of owners properties in recent years and never had a duff one... but this was cerainly one of the very best and we look forward to returning at some point.
Thanks to Pam and Ian for their hospitality.

Our stay at the Tara condo was by far one of our most memorable Florida vacations.
It was our first visit to this home and we didn't know what to expect. After we opened the door, we were blown away.
This place met all of needs and expectations. It was private, immaculate and we were right at home.
Thanks Ian and Pam for allowing us to visit your beautiful vacation home.
The property is ideally situated for the Swimming Pool and Tennis Court and 5 minutes from the Clubhouse,Golfing and Leisure facilities.The accomodation was of the highest standard in terms of cleanliness and comfort and were given top class and friendly customer service from the owners Pam and Ian. I would and have recommended this property to friends and relatives alike which is the ideal base for eating out at nearby restaurants and within easy reach of Beaches and entertainment.
We enjoyed a great 2 weeks in early December at this home from home condo on the Tara estate. The condo is very well equipped & we wanted for nothing during our stay. Extras such as beach chairs, golf trolleys and a well stocked bookcase were a bonus. The outside lanai was perfect for enjoying breakfast & watching the golfers on the 2nd hole. Facilities at Tara were excellent including the course, practice facilities, pool and clubhouse & everyone we met was very friendly and welcoming. The beaches of Anna Maria Island are fabulous, our favourites being Lido & Holmes beach. For the shoppers the outlet mall at Ellenton is only 10/15mins away & worth a visit to pick up some bargains. Finally, the info provided by Pam prior to arrival was comprehensive and the booking process very smooth. Only one negative...we weren't staying for longer!
Spent two weeks at this condo and it felt just like home. Everything you need is provided making it a comfortable stay. The owners Pam and Ian are fantastic to deal with. It was great to have their local knowledge of the area, saving us both time and money. The condo location could not be better. It is minutes to the grocery store, restaurants, and expressway. We played five different golf courses all within a few miles of the condo. The balcony has a nice view of the golf course and was a great quiet getaway for eating and relaxing. Thanks again Pam! - Paul & Torr
We stayed at this condo for 4 weeks and were delighted with the accommodation. It is well equipped and also has cable tv with excellent free on demand programmes. Community pool was quiet and immaculately clean. There are numerous quality golf courses in the locality charging low rates during the summer months.
We have already booked to return to this condo and would recommend it to anyone visiting the area.
The owners are efficient and helpful throughout the booking process and do everything to ensure your stay is enjoyable.
