About Bob Cowper

We have owned our home for twelve years and are from Gullane, East Lothian, Scotland. Our family enjoy our vacations at the villa with the boys enjoying the golf whilst the girls love the shopping, of course everyone enjoys the pool and the idillic setting that the home is situated in.

Bob Cowper purchased this villa in 2005

Why Bob Cowper chose Bradenton

This property is one of the largest in Sabal Harbour and undoubtedly has the best outlook with commanding views over the lake in both south and westerly directions. The amount of wildlife is phenomenal with reed beds providing nesting for our resident Sand Cranes and fishing grounds for the Great Blue Heron, Osprey and many other birds.

What makes this villa unique

Our villa is ideally situated not only because of the location on the estate and large pool but its proximity to local amenities such as Shopping Plazas including Ellenton, The Mall at University Town Centre, local shops within walking distance, golf courses and I75 allowing easy access to the Gulf coast.

Relaxing stay in delightful Bradenton house.

  • 5 of 5

The house looks lovely in the photos, as one would expect, but in reality is if anything even nicer. It is incredibly spacious, well equipped and comfortable and the pool deck and pool in particular are both larger than they seem, making it a delightful and spacious place to sit and enjoy the views of the birdlife. We've been visiting S Florida for over twenty years and this aspect is as nice as anything we've ever stayed in. It's very well positioned at the bottom of the lake and very tranquil. The pool is beautiful, both longer and wider than it seems in the photos and crystal clear. The Sabal Harbour development seems predominantly residential as opposed to full of vacationers and is also very well situated for all the local amenities on Lockwood Ridge Road about a mile away. While it isn't gated, the house is positioned deep into it and we felt absolutely secure.

While not brand new, the property is clearly well maintained and the small handful of VERY minor issues we mentioned to the owner on arrival - primarily to ensure he was aware that we had not caused them - were to our surprise fixed up within a day by the friendly local property manager.

The owner is highly efficient and practical as well, easy to contact and up front to deal with, which is also very important.

All in all we had a lovely time and would definitely stay in this property again, which is the acid test.

August 2017 Stay

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week in this property and it was fantastic. The villa is very large and spacious and has a big pool. There are shops 2 minutes away and only 30 minutes to the beach at Siesta Key. I would definitely stay here again and would recommend it to anyone.

Feels like home!

Second time staying here and it was just as great as the first time.

Home has everything you need for a family trip. Kids spent hours playing in game room and swimming. Close to everything.

Thanks again Bob!

Perfect for our vacation!

  • 4 of 5

The house was large, open, and clean with a nice view. It fit our two families perfectly, and the kids loved the game room. The only downside with the house - the sliding glass door was a bit hard to open and close. We drove into Tampa, Clearwater and Anna Marie Island for day trips and it was all doable drives from the house. The pool and hot tub were nice and we even enjoyed the community pool one day. We had a small issue with the pool and hot tub not heating as we paid for, but we made a call to the property manager and he fixed the problem for us. Great house! If we end up in Bradenton again, we'll rent the same house!

We had a wonderful time here. It was a comfortable place for our family in our vacation away from Michigan. Pool was wonderful for the kids. Located close to everything. Only 2 hours to Orlando. When we go to Florida again, this home will be first on our list. Thank you for allowing us to be guests here. 😊�
