Holiday paradise

  • 5 of 5

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.

Lovely Apartment and great location

  • 5 of 5

The photos on the web site don’t really do it justice. This apartment has all the comforts of home and more. The fixtures and fittings are of the highest order. It’s all too apparent that the owners Ian & Pam haven taken great care and pride in ensuring that the unit has all that is required to enhance anyone’s holiday, even down to beach chairs, coolers et al. The unit set in a quite and peaceful area overlooking the golf course. From the spacious balcony you are able to view golf, local wildlife (woodpeckers, ospreys, ducks, turtles to name but a few) and some amazing sunsets.

Ian & Pam were an absolute treat to deal with always ready to go that extra mile to maximise our holiday experience by providing a seemless booking process and all of the information we needed about the Country Club and other local facilities. I would certainly recommend the apartment without any reservation and will doubtless return. Very well done to you both👏?👏?

Home from home -and then some

  • 5 of 5

From first contact, it was a pleasure dealing with Pam and Ian. Like others we have rented holiday homes through VRBO/HomeAway for a number of years and with, one notable exception, have always been pleased with our choices, but our stay at Tara knocked everywhere else into a cocked hat.

The condo is roomy, extremely comfortable and so well-appointed it really was a home from home. It looks good in the photographs, but, IMHO, it's even better when you're in there. We particularly enjoyed having breakfast on the lanai overlooking the second fairway. There was nothing we might have wanted that wasn't catered for. It is very well situated to get out and about, being close to I75 and SR 70, but traffic noise is nil. There are bars/restaurants and a supermarket all within walking distance if you don't want to drive everywhere.

All in all, we can't speak highly enough of our stay there. The finishing touch was getting to meet Pam and Ian, and enjoying a round of golf and a not-to-be-missed Sunday brunch at the club.

Next time we visit the Gulf Coast, we'll be so disappointed if Tara isn't available.

An Exquisite Vacation Rental

  • 5 of 5

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.

Paradise in the Sun

  • 5 of 5

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.

Wonderful stay at Tara

  • 5 of 5

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!
