About the property

Villa, 4 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

Located in the Sarasota/Bradenton area, our spacious four-bedroom villa has much to offer in both comfort and entertainment for the entire family.

The villa itself is situated in a quiet, peaceful, boating community abundant with Florida’s wildlife, yet close to local amenities. Just a short distance away, sunbathers will be tempted by the long stretches of Gulf Coast beaches, golf enthusiasts are spoilt for choice with over 80 courses, and shopping couldn’t be better than at Prime Outlets (nearly 100 designer shops at discount prices!!). As can be imagined, fishing is a local pastime at the countless rivers, piers, etc. For family fun, Busch Gardens is just 30 minutes away and Disney/Orlando attractions are an easy 90 minute drive.

The villa is surrounded by tropical plants and the private, screened, electric-heated pool overlooks a beautiful lake attracting Florida’s wildlife, including freshwater turtles. The partially-covered patio allows both shade and sunshine throughout the day and is perfect for sunbathing and breakfasts/evening meals.

The interior is furnished to an executive level. The open plan living/formal dining room looks out onto the pool and lake. Both the kitchen and living room are tiled throughout. The kitchen is fully-equipped with a separate informal dining area. There are four bedrooms that can comfortably accommodate up to eight people: a master bedroom with an en suite bathroom (walk-in shower and oval bath), three other bedrooms, and a separate bathroom. The villa is also equipped for babies with a sterilizer, travel cot/playpen, and highchair/babyseat at no extra cost. Bed linens are supplied and maid-service is provided between lets.

Getting there and away: The villa is conveniently located off of SR-64 at exit 42 on the I-75. It is just 15 minutes from Sarasota/Bradenton Airport, 40 minutes from Tampa Airport, and an easy 90 minutes from Orlando Airport.

Great house with easy access to stores and beautiful natural scenery

  • 5 of 5

The private pool was great and the right temp (we paid the extra to have it heated since it was December). Wild turtles and all kinds of birds to see in the pond out back were lots of fun for the kids. The house was clean and well cared for and had plenty of space for our large family. There were 2 pack and play cribs in one of the closets which was very nice. There was also a booster seat in the kitchen which was a big help for us. The coded lock in front is really a great way to handle this kind of house. I've stayed at a few other houses where it was necessary to get a physical key (the place I stayed at after this gave us the wrong key!) and just having a code to get in really worked well.

The house is nicely handicapped accessible as it's a single story with only a very small step up to get in the front door.

Walmart is about 5 minutes away, Publix (supermarket) is about 3 minutes away. There are also some restaurants close by but we ended up making pretty much all of our own food.

I would definitely recommend this house to anyone who wants to be in the Sarasota area in a nice quiet neighborhood.

Comfortable and spacious

  • 4 of 5

We were in Bradenton for a few days to visit family. The family all ended up at Lakeside Villa to gather because it was spacious and comfortable. The house was clean and had basic necessities on arrival. Kitchen could use some updating as the appliances are getting older. Pool was on the small side but weather was a bit chilly so it was not used. The view to the backyard was calming with the lake and beautiful trees. Owner was extremely attentive to any questions I had. Location was pretty good as just out on the main road you had everything you needed. Ellenton Mall was less than 10 minutes away. The drive to beaches was about a 20 minute drive. We would return to this property in future.

Nice villa and quiet neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

My family had a great time in this house. Everything needed to prepare meals and feel home was provided. The villa is very spacious and nicely decorated. The neighborhood is very nice and quiet, we enjoyed biking in the area.

Communication with owner was great, he always answered quick and clearly all questions.

wonderful stay

  • 4 of 5

The vacation itself was awesome!! The house was nice and comfortable. Very close to everything...

The only issue was the venetian blinds in the living room were missing blinds. So the sun would peak in the afternoon.

River Pointe recommended

  • 4 of 5

Stayed for a week - family of 5. House is located in a quiet neighborhood but close to shopping (Publix, Walmart), restaurants (Applebees, Gecko’s and many other fast food type places) and main highway. Short drive to the beaches too! House itself was clean, stocked with basic necessities and roomy enough to not feel crowded. Pool is on the small side but was fun for the kids after a long day out in the Florida heat. Nice view from the living room and screened in lanai overlooking a pond which is home to pink flamingos and other wild life. Didn’t have any issues while we were there. Would recommend it.
