About Pauline Walduck.


My name is Pauline and my husband Howard and I purchased our lovely villa a little over eleven years ago. We have spent a great deal of time making it a colourful and comfortable home to try to ensure that our guests will have always have an enjoyable stay in this wonderful location.

We love the home and the local area and try to visit twice year to enjoy the many towns and beaches nearby such as Siesta Key and the fabulous Anna Maria Island.

We live in the UK in the north of the country in an area called the Lake District where I work for a cottage rental company and my husband renovates period properties for a living.

We have made many friends over our decade of owning Little Palms Villa and are pleased to have many repeat guests who stay there, some returning year after year.

Why Pauline Walduck. chose Sabal Harbour

We spent a long time choosing our Florida home and decided that the place with the greatest appeal for us was the Gulf Coast with its superb beaches and unhurried lifestyle compared to other areas we visited. The home is just a 5 minute drive from the I 75 (running north south) close to the west coast allowing easy travel to the many attractions of the Sarasota and Bradenton area. The main point that we loved about the villa was the south facing view over the pool to the rear over a peaceful lake.

What makes this villa unique

Our villa has all of the amenities that any guest would need for a comfortable trouble free stay on the Gulf Coast. We have a fine management company who look after the home in our absence, and guests are constantly remarking on how clean and well maintained Little Palms Villa is. We have televisions in most rooms, a Bose sound system connected to the one in the in the main living room and radios and sound systems throughout the home. Our fully equipped kitchen means that the occasional evening at home is a must with dining areas in the kitchen, dining room and outside on the tiled patio are beside the pool. We provide a new gas bbq at no charge to guests (including gas). There are four loungers beside the heated pool which has underwater lighting to enable evening swimming and is under a lanai screen.

Fully air-conditioned, the home is a great base for families or even couples to spend time in comfort while exploring the great facilities in the locality. These include the pure quartz sandy beach and town of Siesta Key, the stylish city of Sarasota ( both reached within half an hours drive of Sabal Harbour) and the beautiful Anna Maria Island with its quaint 'Key West' feel and miles of clean beaches.

Lovely Villa

  • 5 of 5

We sent the month of April at Howard and Pauline ‘s villa. We really enjoyed their house. The villa was very well maintained, the beds were super comfortable and the pool was awesome. The rental company were great to deal with when we had a problem with one of the toilets.I called to tell them and they had a plumber there within a few hours.

Howard and Pauline were excellent in corresponding with us before our trip and while we were there. We highly recommended their villa .

Thank you so much for everything.

A great vacation in this house

  • 5 of 5

Howard and Pauline are very nice couple. When they knew I did not get the information for the house access, they paid a great attention to make sure we are good. The house was very clean and the decoration was elegant. Once we stepped into it, we felt like we are at home. The kitchen provided more than enough utensils, the beds are comfortable. We really enjoy the heated swimming pool there. The weather was good there but it was not warm enough to get into the water when we at the beach. The heated swimming pool really made up it. The location was great, close to everything. It was about 20mins drive to lido beach. We spent 2 nights on Lido beach which was a beautiful and safe place to relax. Thank you so much, Pauline and Howard, thank you so much for opening your beautiful house for our vacation. We will come back if we have chance to go to sarasota again.

Comfortable House

  • 4 of 5

The house is great and it's in a nice area. We were so pleased to find that the beds are really comfortable. I must complain about the management company, though. The house looked perfectly clean, although some things are quite old or used, until I looked in the drawers and cabinets, and when the shower curtain holder cracked, they charged me way too much money saying it was due to negligence on my part. But the owners are great and understanding and they took care of it. So I would definitely go back ... if they changed their management company.
