About Bart and Karen Francis

My wife and I were looking for the perfect winter getaway from the Northern Alberta winters and have always loved Florida

Bart and Karen Francis purchased this condo in 2014

Why Bart and Karen Francis chose Bradenton

We searched all along the West coast of Florida and fell in love with the resort feel of Riverstrand. Its proximity to so many fantastic beaches, shopping, points of interest added to the allure.

What makes this condo unique

The first time you watch the sunset over the Mantee River from the 4th floor Lanai will have you wishing you lived here full time. The next best time is your morning coffee watching the sunrise.

Spring time in Bradenton

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in Bradenton at River Strand with the highlight far and away at the Francis' unit on the fourth floor. The condo unit was A+++ with every possible need around the house tucked away somewhere, the ammentities were amazing, more than 98% of all the households in the USA I'd bet. But that was not the best thing about the unit, THE VIEW is. My significant other told me that all she wanted was a view, well she got one in SPADES. The view is killer and she would spend maybe 5 hours every day from coffee in the morning to a glass of wine at night relaxing with her books and electronic toys looking for the Gator in the huge pond out back to the ALL WORLD sunset in the evening This unit being on the fourth floor truly makes it all happen.

Beautiful condo. Well furnished and completely equipped!

  • 5 of 5

River Strand is a wonderful community all amenities are first class. We stayed for a month at the unit owned by Bart and Karen Francis. The rental process was easy. Questions were answered promptly, completely and satisfactorily. All instructions, required information and directions were provided well before our trip began. The condo is beautifully furnished and very comfortable. The condo is equipped with everything we needed and more. The view from this fourth floor unit is awesome. We hope to return next year!

Car: recommended

Conveniently located just off the I75, you will be a short drive from several Gulf Coast Beaches. The Ellenton outlet mall is just across the river and there are many fantastic restaurants close as well. Our favourites are the Bone Fish Grill in Sarasota and Tommy Bahama at St Armand Circle. Busch Gardens in Tampa is approximately an hour away and Orlando is an easy day trip to visit the Disney theme parks. Sarasota is home to the Ringling Brothers museum as well as several other historic points of interest. A Super Walmart is only 5 minutes away for all of your grocery needs.
