Guestbook comments from the owner

We have spent 2 weeks in Florida. Your villa is 5 star; you have thought of everything we could possibly need. Thank you also for the welcome pack - ideal when coming in late at night.

We have enjoyed meals at : 'Rotten Ralphs' (fish and chips enough to share), 'Outback' on Cortez Road (lovely meal).

Anna Maria Island - fantastic beach - drinks on the pier - friendly dolphins - ice cream at Scoops'.

We hope to return in 2014 and won't hesitate to recommend your villa to friends.

Owner reply :

Thanks for your review - the above taken from our 'visitor book' at the house.

Thank you also for your 5* rating and your recommendations to friends; it is good to know that we have got it right at the house. We are sure your comments will be most helpful to other guests thinking of staying at our home in Bradenton.

Thanks again

A truly excellent vacation home

  • 5 of 5

What an excellent vacation home....full of the homely things that you meant to pack but somehow forgot. We believe this property is in an excellent location to reach the Bradenton and Sarasota beaches as well as all the Bradenton and Sarasota shopping Malls have to offer...also near to the I-75 which gets you anywhere in the state quite easily.

Everything is there as is mentioned on the website and the home is scrupulously clean throughout. Excellent pool furniture, toys and for us, the essential lanai (covered area) in which to relax, eat or just get out of the sun for a while.

We were lucky to meet John and Lynne on our final day as they had just arrived....we cannot thank them enough for their kindness and ease to deal with. Perhaps one day we will meet again as we plan to return to their house next year all being well.... for 1st time visitors there is loads to see and do in the area. Just look in the guest books in the house for comments from previous guests and there are more than enough suggestions there.

Thanks again to you both for the use of your Florida home and (trust me folks), you will be pushed to find a better home in a better location in the Bradenton and Sarasota area.

Owner's Response: Many thanks to Dave and Lyn for taking the time to write a very thoughtful review of our home in Bradenton. In so doing you have confirmed what we have been saying for the 14 years we have been renting the house; that is the Bradenton - Sarasota area has So much to offer for that valued vacation in Florida. We, supported by our house manager, strive to maintain the house presentation to the highest standards expected by our guests. Hence it was a pleasure to note you found the house "scrupulously clean". Yes, you are quite right that we endeavoured to provide in the house everything that guests may require (and more) to make the holiday all the more enjoyable. It was a pleasure to meet you, all be it briefly, and hope we can welcome you back again to soak up all the area has to offer. Thanks once again for choosing to book with us. John and Lynne

A lovely property in a great location

  • 5 of 5

After a hectic week in Orlando we were ready for some r+r on the Gulf Coast. We immediately felt at home in the villa and the welcome pack was a lovely touch and very much appreciated, thank you :) The villa is spacious and decorated in calming blue hues and is so well stocked from beach chairs and umbrellas, games, books, cd's to the little things you forget like herbs and condiments - and the kids had a brilliant time using the body boards on the various beaches. Publix and a post office is about 3 minutes away whilst Walmart a mere 5 mins in the other direction. The villa is about 20 minutes away from the coast - head to City Pier on Anna Maria Island for a drink and you may be as lucky as we were to see some wild dolphins! Magical! Had lovely meals at Woody's River Roo in Ellenton and Old Salty Dog at Lido Key which is also a great beach for watching sunsets and the finest white sand you'll ever see! We visited Busch Gardens, Clearwater Marine Museum (both about an hour away) and The Ringling in Sarasota is definitely worth a visit. Ellenton Premium Outlets is quiet compared to Orlando's and the University Mall in Sarasota is very nice too. We had a fabulous time at this lovely villa and would highly recommend. Thank you John and Lynne for making the booking process so smooth - we would love to return in a couple of years and are starting to save now!

It is a very thoughtful and considered review which imparts quite a lot of information for guests considering booking with us. We endeavour to ensure that all guest's needs are taken care of and that our house has all that is required for that enjoyable holiday. Our house manager maintains our high standards of cleanliness in presenting our house to best advantage which does lead to guests returning year on year. So it will be a pleasure to welcome the Johnson party in a couple of years. Thanks once again for letting us know your visits and tips. John and Lynne

Haven of tranquility!

After the hassle of Orlando, this was the perfect tonic! A beautiful home, an excellent pool, situated in a quiet location that is convenient to great beaches, shopping, and restaurants. The owner was very efficient and helpful in every way.

Fantastic Property in Ideal Location!!

  • 5 of 5

A beautifully presented property located within a short drive of pretty much everywhere worth visiting in the local area! We visited a number of great places whilst on holiday here; Siesta Key, Sarasota, St. Armands, Cortez, Bradenton Beach, Ellenton shopping outlet, and Lakewood Ranch to name a few. All of the areas were recommended from the owners and also reading the guest book. We would highly recommend staying at this lovely villa and will be booking again soon!

Owner's Response: Many thanks to the Carnaby Girls for taking time to write a review. It's great to see that you enjoyed the Bradenton area as much as we do and it was a pleasure to help you with some locations to visit. Our guests often share their experiences too by writing a few notes in our house guest book; from feedback, the guest book has been found to be most helpful. We are delighted you found our house to your liking as we, along with our house manager, strive to keep a high level of presentation. Look forward to welcoming you again on a return visit. John and Lynne

This is an excellent villa to rent. It was immaculately clean and spacious. It's well resourced and the welcome pack after a very long day traveling was a delight. The owners and the management company are so kind and helpful and the area is safe enough to go out running. The pool is lovely and the South facing garden means you could catch the sun at any time. My children enjoyed the house and the pool toys. Very close to shops and some restaurants but you do need to drive. We had such a great holiday.

Owner's Response: Many thanks to Caroline for taking the time to post a review. Our manager is very diligent in ensuring the house is prepared for cleanliness for our guest's arrival. The grocery pack we provide is always a 'welcome find' particularly so for guests arriving late in the evening as they do not have to go out to provide breakfast. We are pleased to find that your family enjoyed the house and the area and that you had a great holiday there. Just a note that the rear of the house (the pool area) is actually north facing but are quite right in saying this time of year the sun passes from east to west directly overhead; bathing the poll and deck in sunshine.
