Well situated in a secure gated community adjacent to the golf course. River Strand is well looked after by staff and residents, who we found to be very friendly and welcoming.
The property we stayed in is well appointed, was very clean and has a full working kitchen, plus laundry facilities. We had a minor issue with aircon which was very quickly resolved by the owner.
Just a warning about 'free golf'- a $200 membership transfer fee is required, and buggy/cart hire is compulsory before 3pm and costs $47 per round. You can play as often as you like subject to tee availability.
The three nine hole loops have individual challenges and provide good variety, with tee positions to suit all abilities.
November seems to be low season here, so clubhouse catering was restricted mid-week
, closing at 5pm. Facilities, though, are excellent.
There are good restaurant choices and Walmart and Publix supermarkets within 10 minute drive. I would certainly recommend the property to my friends as a great base for golf and to explore central Florida's Gulf Coast.
The condo is a ground floor unit with very convenient access from the car or going to the pool etc. The furnishings and amenities are great and the lanai looks on to the #6 tee. The mix of the three 9 hole courses give a great variety of golf when playing 18. Easy and quick (within 45 minutes or less) access to beaches, shopping, sports facilities in St Petes and Tampa. The owners were very accommodating and helpful always available if needed, great to deal with.
This is a golfer's paradise, with beautiful landscaped grounds. The satellite pool is very close. We were one of the first renters, and found the condo a bit on the sparse side as far as kitchen equipment, linens, area information, such things as we have found in previously rented condos. Beach towels would be nice, for example, for people arriving by plane. As time goes by, I'm sure the condo will become more completely furnished. The pet friendly policy is great. The owner was extremely helpful and accommodating when we had a problem concerning a nearby unit. The condo is quiet and relaxing and convenient to the interstate and one of the main arteries of Bradenton. We enjoyed visiting Anna Maria island, we rented a pontoon boat for a day, saw the manatees, visited the Ringling museum in Sarasota, and had lots of good seafood.
