Susan Card purchased this condo in 2014

Why Susan Card chose Florida South Central Gulf Coast

After our 2 month stay at River Strand we knew we wanted to be there for a long time to come! The community is immaculate, the golf incredible and the condo comfortable and welcoming.

What makes this condo unique

There are very few places in FL where you can assume the owner's membership and play golf for $200! The only additional fee is for the cart.

Wonderful Condo with a Golf Course View

  • 5 of 5

We relocated to Florida and rented this beautiful condo for 3 months while we were looking for our own place to buy. The kitchen had everything we needed, and we were really able to feel at home and relax while we were there. River Strand is a beautiful development with several golf courses and an amazing pool area that we enjoyed. (The resistance walking pool was personally one of my favorite parts.) We also enjoyed the surrounding area and loved being close to Wal-Mart. We felt like we truly were close to everything...the Ellenton outlet mall, Sarasota which has a lot of good places to eat and great shopping, St. Petersburg, and so many things to see and do. It was also a nice drive to the beach. I would have to say though that the best part of this condo was the owner, Susan. She was so easy to work with and responded quickly to any questions. There was also an email with suggestions for things to do and places to eat that was very helpful. I would definitely recommend this property to anyone! Everything about our experience was positive.

Great condo, and beautiful development.

  • 5 of 5

Great condo, and beautiful development. The apt. has everything to live comfortably. It was clean and very livable. Since it's the summer, not too many people in the development. All facilities are wide open. Susan, the owner and her property manager are very responsible and professional. We spent a wonderful month there. Thank you, Susan. We will go back next summer.

Great condo and location

  • 5 of 5

Stayed in this condo in River Strand for a month in May this year. The unit is equipped for everything you need -kitchen especially well stocked as no one wants to eat out every night! Comfortable seating and great tv for the quiet nights unwinding after a round of golf. River strand itself is beautiful and the golf is great -a great starting point to get to the beaches and shopping ! Highly recommend this rental.

Spent a month and it felt like home with a terrific view ( the best in River Strand), a great golf course and plenty of other amenities. Perfectly safe for a single women in a gated community. Perfectly quiet for the over 55 set. Owner has provided all that's needed for a comfortable stay from fine beds to fine cookware. Check out the Tuesday buffets at the club. Lots of good restaurants nearby in Sarasota (try Tandoor off University), the Grill in Downtown Bradenton and if you like a Key West atmosphere and a band try Woodys on the river in Ellenton.
