About Anthony Barresi

I'm born and raised in Ottawa Canada. I own rental properties in Ottawa and I've always had the desire to own a property in Florida. I started my google search with 'what's the number #1 beach in the USA' and it turns out Siesta Keys beach is just that. I also have a love of golf so I then searched for near golf courses and gladly stumbled across River Strand Golf & Country Club. I knew then that this was going to be the place.

Anthony Barresi purchased this condo in 2014

Why Anthony Barresi chose Florida South Central Gulf Coast

I flew down to investigate and to familiarize myself with area and community. The minute I drove through the Heritage Harbor community entrance road, I was instantly impressed. The lushly maintained landscape with the oversize roads made everything look so grand. I then drove up to the gates of River Strand community and was greeted by a friendly guard that took my information and asked me some questions. Once through the gates the road lead me straight to the River Strand Golf and Country Club, I was in awe! I was sold right then and there. I then went with my agent to view the condo and couldn't believe my eyes. The unit was spectacular, but what sold me the most was the unbelievable view from the screened in terrace. The lake view in combination with golf course and seamlessly blended in background of the forest preserve. I then thought this just doesn't get any better, but it does. I then notice in the near distance I can see a clear view of the bay of the Manatee Lake. WOW! WOW! WOW!

What makes this condo unique

The location, the views, the golf course, the luxurious condo, these are many reasons I fell in love with this area. There's unlimited golf, tennis courts, resort style pool and exercise room. There's an endless amount of things to do. Whether you love golf, shopping, pro sports, theater, musicals, museums, theme parks, fishing, boating, swimming. You name it this place and location has what your looking for and it will exceed any expectations. It's truly your one stop dream vacation. Everyone will find something to do no matter what the age.

Anthony was engaged every step of the process, from reservation to checking out. He also provided us insights during our stay at his well maintained condo. Always a pleasure to deal with a pro. We look forward to returning!

A lovely condo, tastefully furnished and well-equipped;the photos provide a true picture of the unit. The lanai overlooks a pond which is a habitat for an alligator, turtles, cranes,etc .Golfers can also be viewed on the 8th tee of the Sanctuary course.

Riverstrand is a gated, safe, quiet, and inviting community with excellent golf and tennis facilities, a beautiful clubhouse and dining room, a large central pool area, a modern fitness facility, and smaller neighbourhood pools.

The owner is very congenial and accommodating.

We certainly enjoyed our April stay, and highly recommend this condo.

Very clean, modern & well equiped.

  • 5 of 5

This condo was fantastic. It had everything we needed to enjoy our stay. The view of the golf course and large pond with large turtles, an alligator and a variety of birds was very entertaining. The facilities at River Strand were excellent. We golfed many times and spent a lot of time at the pool area. There are many beaches within a short drive. We visited Holmes Beach, Bradenton Beach, Lido Beach and Siesta Key beach. Go early to avoid heavy traffic and to get a parking spot. There are many great restaurants and bars in the Bradenton area.

Anthony was a real pleasure to work with. He addressed any concerns we had immediately. We would definitely stay there again.

First time snow bird vacation

  • 5 of 5

We found this condo on VRBO, the owner Anthony was wonderful. He communicated the booking details quickly and accurately. We spent the month of February. The condo is very well appointed, with quality furnishings throughout. The master bedroom had a wonderful king size bed which had us sleeping like we were on vacation. The view from the lanai overlooking the golf course was terrific. We had breakfast watching the golfers tee off and learned how not to swing at a golf ball. The 27 hole golf course really provides a host of challenges and is maintained really well. The practice ranges are a great benefit. The club house, tennis courts and pool are all we needed. We have already booked with Anthony next year and are looking forward to our return.
