About The Owner

My wife and I are two semi retired executives with 2 daughters and 3 young grandchildren who love visiting are beautiful home in Florida. We have been coming to Florida for the past several years with the intention of increasing our time as our professional schedules permit.

The Owner purchased this bungalow in 2010

Why The Owner chose Tara Golf & Country Club

We chose to buy at Tara after having rented on several prior occasions. We also chose to accept the advice and recommendations from freinds who were well established at Tara and who had as well made recent purchases for their homes.

What makes this bungalow unique

Our home has arguably the best location on the golf course. It is a short walk to the amenities of the clubhouse and the practice range as well as next to the 9th green and 1st tee. We also enjoy the proximity of the ocean and the city of Sarasota with its many world renowned cultural activities.

Clean house with everything you need

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in March for Spring Training and had a great time. House was in great location, close to everything and still very quiet. Short drive to beach.

Pool was perfect and had lots of toys for kids.

There wasn't anything we needed, the owners thought of everything for you.

Excellent location and layout

  • 5 of 5

Would highly recommend this property to anyone. The only drawback for us was that the hot tub wasn't hot enough. Other than that we had a great time there. Hope that we will be able to get it again next year

Good stay

  • 5 of 5

Lovely property. It was useful to have 3 bathrooms to go with 3 rooms. Saved on having to wait when you wanted to go out. Also nice to have a separate room for relaxing in and for watching television. Grandson is into his sport and loves watching both soccer and NFL but we didn’t all want it on and the 3 Arsenal supporters in our group were impressed that they could watch their team live. The Bose music system is excellent. Most of the time we ate in the lanai at the large table by the pool.

We had everything we needed in the villa and spent every spare moment in the pool which overlooks the golf course and small lake. We looked forward each day to seeing the young alligator sunning itself on the bank - from the safety of the lanai of course. When we wanted the beach there were ample loungers and chairs and a choice of body boards. The local Publix is only a short drive away and the Walmart not much further beyond. We have stayed in Bradenton before and love it, and I would have no hesitation to stay here again.

Well Organized Spacious Home With Everything You Need

  • 5 of 5

3 bedroom home is clean and well organized and contains everything you would need for any activities. The appliances are updated and bedrooms adequately spread out to allow for different sleep schedules. No issues to speak of with our stay. Central location with 20-30 minutes to beach and sits amongst many good golf courses. We played golf 3x and would recommend any of the courses we played (Tara Preserve, Waterlefe, Lakewood National - just opened in January). Used the pool several times - which was clean and includes jet tub. Owners Stu and Pauline a pleasure to work with - would love to stay there again.

Fabulous property -- highly recommend!!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful house that has everything you need for a great vacation. Indoor and outdoor space was perfect. We used as home base for a trip to universal and family visits in Bradenton. Easy drive to beach. Kids loved the pool. Pauline and Stu were very friendly and quickly answered any questions we had. We will definitely stay here again in future visits.

Feels like home

  • 5 of 5

As the weather turns colder here at home, my family is remembering our Florida vacation and we can't wait to go back. Thank you so much for letting us come and stay at your beautiful Florida home. Everything is provided so that all we had to bring was food (and there were even things in the pantry to help us get started!!). Our kids love the yellow room with the single beds, there own private space made them feel special. It's important to us when going on family vacations that they are affordable and this house/location really delivers. the rates are very good, and everything we needed is provided. The house is VERY CLEAN, the decor is lovely, the entire home is updated and tastefully decorated and doesn't feel like a tacky hotel, but rather a real home, with comfortable beds/couches, bright rooms with pretty pictures, and lovely linens and towels to use.

Access to groceries, outlet shopping, fun activities for the kids are all just minutes away. my boys love the used bookstore at the end of the road, and heading off to the beach, but most of all just wanted to swim in the amazing pool all day. nice and warm, and big enough to have fun in, the back lanai and pool are perfect for adults and kids. my husband and i could sit at the outdoor dining table and watch the kids in the pool after dinner...it was hard to get them out of the pool to go to bed!

thanks again for the lovely vacation rental. We are definitely going to book here again!

Owner's Response: Hi Trudie, so happy that your home feels like our home. We are very proud of it and as you do, we love watching everyone have fun in the pool while enjoying the sunsets in the evening. Good to hear that the children loved their room. We had fun decorating it. We will keep the pool warm and ready for you when you return....Kind regards... Stu and Pauline
