A lovely place to stay highly recommend
We have stayed in over 20 houses in this area over the years and this house did not let us down. It’s location is perfect, easy reach of all local amenities plus its 10 mins drive to the lovely beaches of Anna Maria Island which we love.
The house itself is extremely well lates out and for the 5 of us we could all have our own space if needed. The house had everything you needed including all the chairs for the beach. Rooms were very spacious which our friends loved as it was their first time in this area. The pool was lovely with 4 loungers and table and chairs plus BBQ, we used them all. The view across the lake made sitting at night a relaxing time before heading out. If you want a lovely Florida house with everything near by book this one. Only one thing a visitors book would have been a bonus as its always good to see other recommendations of places to eat and visit. We had loads to recommend.our favourite restaurant The Waterfront on AMI and Two Scoops for amazing Ice Cream. We had a 100% lovely stay. Barry Kelly Toby Trevor and Linda👍
Our second and not the last stay
The house is located in very nice place at small lake, in a safe and quiet community and very close to Anna Maria Island and Longboat Key beaches, which are the most beautiful on Florida's west coast of Gulf of Mexico.
The entire house incl. the pool is well-maintained, is spacious for a standard family and is very clean. The furniture is well-preserved and the only aged parts what could be replaced are the two sofas in living room (TV area).
You will find in the garage everything what you need for enjoyable beach visit i.e. sun umbrellas, beach chairs and some stuff for kids.
Supermarkets (Publix, Wallmart etc.), restaurants (Outback, Applebee's, Bonefish etc.) and all other services you need during your holiday can be reached by car in 2 to 10 minutes.
In a range of 15 miles you have a large choice of public golf courses, if you like to play.
This house is the perfect place for an active and relaxing holiday, what we really enjoyed this and last year.
Excellent Villa in a quiet location. Perfect.
We stayed in June 2018. The journey from the airport was around an hour, the driving instructions were excellent even with the small detour to the Walmart en-route. (within a 10min drive of the villa). The villa is in a really nice and quiet location bigger than it looks in the photo's, nicely furnished, very clean with everything provided for. The swimming pool was excellent, incredibly clean. The pool man was lovely and kept the pool perfect for us, he was also very knowledgeable on local activities) If you stay at this villa you will not be disappointed, we had a superb holiday without any problems.
We travelled with two youngster 5 and 7 and they loved the freedom of their own pool. The owner of the villa made sure we had everything we needed before our holiday started, excellent communication prior to our arrival and was on hand if we needed any information or advice.
would recommend watching a game of baseball Tampa Rays, exploring the beautiful beaches (maybe avoid the beaches at the weekend as it can get very busy), kayaking in search of manatees, sea turtles and dolphins in local sarasota, jumping on the sea screamer in clearwater to see the dolphins jumping in the wash of the boat.
All in all a fabulous holiday would definitely recommend this villa. THANK YOU FOR LETTING US STAY.
I joined my sister and her husband on the last two weeks of their holiday. This exceptionally large, spacious Villa certainly has the Wow Factor. Each room/area is very tastefully decorated and spotlessly clean and has all the modern facilities you would need for your holiday. The location is perfect for local shops, amenities and stunning beaches.
The neighbourhood and setting of this villa is beautiful, very quiet and surrounded by immaculate kept gardens. The outside patio area has a large table/chairs for outside dinning and plenty of sun beds. The pool is a perfect size to laze in and cool off and was always lovely and warm. It overlooks a large lake that has a abundance of wildlife that we enjoyed watching including the amazing sunsets.
Overall, this was a wonderful place to stay:)
What a fabulous and welcomed surprise we had when arriving at this villa, after a long and tiring flight from the UK. I can’t say enough about how beautiful this villa and the area it is in. The standard of cleanliness, decoration and it’s contents are first class. Every applicance looks brand new, and everything works. The pool and outside space is so clean and the bbq was well used on warm evenings.
The local area is just so quiet, no noisy neighbours here. In fact although people lived there, we hardly saw anyone. Watching all the wildlife on the lake just outside the villa was so relaxing. One of the most important things on a holiday is the comfort of the beds. Well the beds are first class. So very large and comfortable, that I slept the best I ever have in a strange bed. The large fans in all the rooms are fantastic, as the are fully adjustable to the speed they run at. They were a very welcome addition to the air conditioning. This villa surpassed any villa we have stayed in before, and we have rented at least 8 in Florida before staying here. Thank you Debbie for all your correspondence, and I really hope we can come and stay in your fabulous villa again in the future.
Wonderful Villa, Great Location
We have stayed in this villa several times and it never disappoints. The location is perfect, close to everything you will need and only a few minutes to drive to the wonderful beaches of Anna Maria Island.
The home is perfectly equipped with everything you will need, it works especially well for us as it has 2 en-suite bedrooms.
This was the first time we have travelled in April and were really glad that we opted for the pool heating that was recommended by Debbie.
We are already planning next years trip!
Located on Florida’s beautiful Gulf Coast in Bradenton in the peaceful community of West Glenn, our house is just a 45minute drive south of Tampa Airport or 20minutes from Sarasota Airport. Close by are some of Florida’s finest white sandy beaches such as Coquina Beach, Long Boat Key, Siesta Key, Lido Beach and Anna Maria Island, where you can relax and watch the most spectacular sunsets. Positioned idyllically for tennis players, Nick Bollitieri's famous IMG Tennis Academy is just a short walk from West Glenn and there are over 40 superb golf courses to be enjoyed surrounding Bradenton and Sarasota. Sarasota itself offers a wide range of cultural activities and fine dining. For a relaxing stroll, St. Armands Circle is well worth a visit with its excellent restaurants, shops and side-walk cafes. Disney Land, Universal Studios, Busch Gardens and Sea World are all within easy reach as are the shopping malls of Ellenton, Desoto, Brandon and Sarasota
