3 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom, Lakefront & Pool, Sleeps 6, 45min Tampa, 90 Min Orlando.
We fell in love with the Bradenton area twenty years ago and decided to purchase this home as a vacation get away for our families. The proximity to Busch Gardens, Disney and the beach is what attracted us to this city. Whether you like to shop, golf, baseball with the Pirates, or enjoying local orange groves at Mixon Fruit Farms Bradenton has something to offer everyone that visits.

Rhonda was very easy to work with . Home was very clean and comfortable. Had everything you needed . Pool was wonderful. Decorations were very nice . Quiet neighborhood. Just a simple thing but it would be nice to have a full length mirror. We will definitely be staying again !
Wonderul home. Very well appointed. Close to everything.
Another Great Stay!
Similar to other folks who have rated this property of Rhonda’s, I have to say it was everything we expected and then some. This is the second consecutive year we’ve rented a house from Rhonda and in both cases she’s been a delight to work with. The house was clean and fresh smelling and well stocked with all the cooking utensils one requires to feel at home. All the appliances appeared new and the place was spotless. There is a large garage with remote opener and so clean you could eat off the painted floor. The pool area is ample in size and gets sun through the majority of the day. Beds are comfortable and the rooms have great closet space. The location is terrific for us as it the first exit south of Ellenton on 64 off of Hwy 75. We had a great variety of golf courses available within 15-20 minutes. Anna Maria beach is only a 20 minute or so drive directly west on 64. There’s a Public’s right across the street from the entrance to the development entrance and a Walmart a couple of blocks further down the road. You won’t be disappointed with this house and if anything comes up, she’s only a phone call away.
Charming, cozy, comfortable, clean well upkept home.
Rhonda was great. Answered our call for help when my 5 yr old granddaughter locked a keyed door and there was no key. (Apparently my precocious granddaughter is the first in 5 years to manage this.) But Rhonda came right away and the problem was fixed. Though it was too cold to use the pool, it was still lovely at night. All the beds are comfy. We did notice that if needed, the couch is a pull-out making even more room if needed for guests. The washer and dryer are great and easily accessible in the garage as you open the door from the kitchen to the garage. Sitting outside in the covered pool area was lovely and we did see many different birds. Egrets. Herons. Ibis. Ducks. Do beware of the very large black duck with red forehead and red around the eyes. NOT FRIENDLY! The park was about 5 blocks maybe, and my grandkids had a lovely time playing on the swings and slides and of course having a picnic.
The people in the area are friendly and approachable. There is a grocery (Publix) very close along with several good restaurants and a super Walmart about a mile or so on #64. Extremely easy access to Interstate 75. And I think only 2 exits south gets you to University mall which is huge. You do need a map of the place ( I mean just the mall) to get where you want if it’s a specific spot.
You might want to clarify the recycle pick up days and times with Rhonda. The trash was easy. Tuesday’s and fridays. I put it out the night before and it was picked up a bit late but it was picked up.
I’m very non techy but again Rhonda left very specific instructions on how to navigate the TVs so we were fine. There is a roku there and access to Netflix. Yay!!!
All in all it’s a great place to stay. When I go back, I’ll be checking with Rhonda first! She has 5 places I think. I’ve rented other places many times before and this was the most comfortable. easy to have kids over ( I had two grandkids a night and one great granddaughter the entire two weeks), beautiful at night sitting and relaxing watching the pool colors. Very easy to get Rhonda for any problems and I guess I’m saying it was perfect for my family.
Just an FYI. It was me and my husband that came over from California. I have kids, grandkids and a great grandaughter living in both North Port and West Bradenton making it very easy for them to come to us. Which makes it so much easier to relax.
Thank you Rhonda. I’d keep rambling about everything but I’m running out of letters.
The house was everything we could have asked for. very clean and equipped with everything you need. The pool was a very nice addition. Rhonda was very helpful and offered many attractions to visit.
Second great stay!
This was our second visit to this great home! The owner Rhonda is very accommodating and helpful and responses to any questions promptly. We stayed for one week with four adults , three children and one infant. There was lots of room and the kids loved the pool. The house is in a great location, close to the beach, to LECOM park and to the I75 which means easy access to lots of shopping. There is a Publix less then 5 minutes away and lots of great restaurants. We are looking forward to our next stay already. Don't hesitate to book, you will not be disappointed.
