Overview

About the property

Clean and spacious two bedroom villa very close to all that Florida offers.

Gorgeous private villas within one home located right on the Manatee River so you can bring your boat or view the wide expanse of tranquility from your deck. CALL US at 941-677-8575 TO CHOOSE A VILLA. Visit www.princesshana.com for direct booking. The location is central to so much entertainment. It's one minute to Ellenton Premium Outlet Mall, twelve minutes to the luxurious University Town Center, and twenty five minutes to Holmes Beach. Golf courses, world famous museums, sports venues and amusement parks are easy day trips.

Villa 1 is a spacious 2 bedroom suite with kitchen, living room and dining area. Different than villa 2, it has a tempurpedic adjustable mattress in the master and a jacuzzi tub.

Bring your fishing pole or use ours. This is saltwater and fresh water mix at your dock. You will catch sheepshead, catfish, snook and many others right at your footsteps. By boat, you're twenty minutes to the Gulf of Mexico but you can trap blue crab everyday without leaving your home. Then barbecue on the outdoor grill watching for dolphin or manatee to swim by.

The villas are located on an half acre lot surrounded by shady Florida oak trees and tropical foliage. The home has garage parking for your vehicles. There is an RV or trailer parking spot as well with water and electrical hook up. The villas share a foyer splitting the home in half for privacy. Cable television and high speed wi-fi internet access are included. The villas are tastefully decorated with high quality furnishings. Enjoy panoramic views of the river from your lanai, kitchen, dining area, living room or deck. Oh my! Mimosa anyone?

Shopping galore! Ellenton Premier Outlet is a minute away where Ralph Lauren, Ann Taylor, Kenneth Cole, Kate Spade and many other designer stores await you. The luxury mall of University Town Center is a short drive as well with stores like Swarovski, Tesla, H&M and more. Restaurants are a plenty in close proximity from local treasures to national favorites.

Beaches- we got the best. Internationally recognized Siesta Key is 35 minutes away. The nearest beach, Holmes Beach, no less in beauty than Siesta, is only 25 minutes away. The recreation is endless. There are more than two dozen golf courses in the area. The amusement parks of Busch Gardens, Sea World, Universal Studio and of course Walt Disney World are all less than an hour and an half away.

About Garrick and Monica Mullen

We want to welcome you to Southwest Florida. We've been here for over 35 years and hope to show you why we call it home. We are a small family of husband, wife and young daughter and look forward to meeting you. This large house has been designed perfectly to enable two private villas within the same home.

Garrick and Monica Mullen purchased this villa in 2015

Why Garrick and Monica Mullen chose Ellenton

The home is a little bit of old Florida and a little bit of the sophisticated Sunshine State. The Spanish moss from the oak trees and the half acre lot along the river convey a feeling of relaxation. But, nearby attractions of high end shopping, white sandy beaches and world class amusement parks beckon you out each day to the splendor of Florida.

What makes this villa unique

Rarely will you find a home that is close to everything. Its near enough to the beaches but has waterfront relaxation at your doorstep. It has the famous amusememt parks close enough to make it a day trip but a quite spacious home that staying in might be the main attraction. Shopping within a short amount of minutes are Ellenton Premier Outlet or luxurious University Town Center Mall. Tampa International, St.Pete-Clearwater or Sarasota-Bradenton airport are all less than an hour away.

We hope to come back to your place for 4-6 weeks in December.

Fantastic Vacation Rental and Great Location

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely loved this vacation rental.

Highlights: (1) Garrick and Monica were accessible and very professional hosts. They are very knowledgeable of the area and gave us some great advice on good fishing spots and bait stores. (2) We stayed in Villa 2. The villa is very spacious (rooms, kitchen, living room). There is a lot of natural light and windows - the view of the Manatee River is amazing! You can see the view of the river from the kitchen, dining table, living room and master bedroom. The view is what I loved most about this property. Tiled floors, update-to-date furniture and linens. (3) Up-to-date appliances - double oven, very large kitchen sink, standard stove and microwave and very nice laundry facility. The laundry facility was a top feature for me. VERY SPACIOUS with a really nice washer and dryer. (4) Unlike most vacation rentals, the owners leave cleaning and washing products out and accessible for the vacationers. This made cleaning along the way and keeping things tidy much easier. (5) The pier is very well kept and a great place for evening and morning fishing. Our family rented a boat for 3 days and were able to dock at the pier. Our boys spent a couple of evenings fishing off the pier (catfish easy to catch). In the mornings, we saw dolphin and stingray while out on the pier. (6) The location is less than a minute from 75 and made traveling to Sarasota and St. Petersburg very easy. 25 minutes to Tropicana Field (Tampa Bay Rays) and about 15 minutes to Skyway South Fishing Pier. There are also outlet stores less than 3 minutes away.

I spent several hours trying to find the best rental for my family of (4) and I am so thankful I did! A baseball tournament is what brought us to Sarasota, however we loved this rental so much, we are hoping to come back for vacation only.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your wonderful words and assessment of our property. We do try our best to keep a high-quality space and well-maintained for everyone's enjoyment. Your family was the first to rent a boat and dock it at our home, so I am really happy that it worked out well. We do hope you return and we would be glad to host your next vacation.

Beautiful Home on the Manatee River

  • 4 of 5

Our stay was short but comfortable. It is adequately stocked and even includes some bathroom toiletries and laundry supplies. Monica greeted us when we arrived to give us pertinent information and make sure we were set for our stay. The location on the river is beautiful and private, aside from sharing it with those who may be staying in Villa #2 in the other half of the house. The only drawback of the house is the layout and lack of privacy for Villa #1 in which we stayed. The entrance from the foyer leads into the bedroom area, however, you could use the outside entrance in the back. The master bedroom window and door look into the enclosed lanai for Villa #2 so the blinds must be kept closed for privacy. The laundry room is actually situated in Villa #2. It can be entered through the garage but still feels like it is a part of the other villa. There were no occupants in Villa #2 for all but one day of our stay so it worked okay for us but if it had been occupied the whole time I wouldn't have felt comfortable using the laundry facilities. Noise from the shared entry way, which houses a pool table, as well as from the lanai for Villa #2 may also be a concern, depending on the occupants of villa #2. This is an upscale and very attractive home but my husband and I felt it would be more suitable for either all family or friends to stay in both villas. However, if you are a 'people person' you would be comfortable there.

River Roo Fun

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so much for offering your place to us for our lil weekend getaway.We are always looking for fun local getaways cause you know they say that it's better to take a few small vacations than one big one.We are firm believers in that!!Your place gave us everything we were looking for.Love the dock and the comfy feel of your house.We felt right at home but w/the luxury we don't normally get.I would make a suggestion of adding a bench seat at the dock to sit and fish however we found the fold out chairs in the patio area and they worked fine.We couldn't figure out if there was any lighting on the dock but we had a lantern that we used.O and we didn't like being on camera while we were playing pool so we covered the camera for the time being,sorry.I told my husband we'd have to come and stay again when we can rent the whole house w/our adult kiddos plus not having our seven year old and seeing all that you had to offer little ones made me keep saying Devin would've had a great time too.We will be back some time soon.Thanks again for opening your house to us.You made it feel like we were staying in a family members house.So super sweet!!!!

Owner's Response: Happy to see that you enjoyed the space. Yes we take great pride when the guests say that space matches the photos. However it's hard to match the panoramic beauty of the river when you're here. We do hope to see you again and thanks for coming here.
