About Sandra and Jim
We live in Paradise and love this place everyone comes to, to vacation, so we bought a home here..My husband & I grew up in St. Louis. He is a retired Chiropractor & I am a retired Office Manager. We love fixing up our home & making it comfortable for others to share.

Why Sandra and Jim chose Bradenton
It is in a great location, close to everything Bradenton has to offer. It is about 5 miles to the beach, within 2 miles out the door you have plenty of shopping and dining. Additionally, this home is known for it's open & comfortable environment. In traveling, we discovered this area approximately 10 years ago & enjoy the climate & closeness to the large town amenities in this small town area. We love it here and want to share what we found with others who will fall in love with it too. Relax& Enjoy.

Florida Winter getaway
Wonderful cozy clean spacious home. We had a great time and totally loved the house of Jim and Sandy. They were such a nice couple and always trying to accomodate us. The weather could have been better but that is the way it is in Florida in January I guess. It would have been nice to use the great pool. Definately a great house !!!! Would go back again. Very nice quiet neighborhood also. Thank you Jim and Sandy for sharing your house.
A relaxing end to our US road trip
Five friends stayed at this property at the end of a music road trip in the southern United States, we are all 55+
We found the property easily with the frontage exactly as photographed. We entered a beautifully prepared home with a lovely pool area and hot tub out back which the owners attended to during our stay to ensure it was in great shape for our use.
This property would suit families, with the master suite on the opposite side of the house giving some privacy from the kids, or groups of friends. If you have several couples in your group be prepared for a fight over the master suite which is huge and just a bit delicious. The other two double bedrooms are on the other side of the house separated by a shared bathroom. The kitchen has everything you might need and there is a cookout area with BBQ alongside the pool.
One of the striking features of the property is the number of seating areas. If you need to take yourself off from your group for some peace there are plenty of options inside and out.
I like to take a brisk walk each morning and found the area safe, the roads quiet and was able to fit an hours swift walking in without crossing multi lane highways.
There is supermarket 5-10 minutes walk and another better one a further 5 minutes. There are ATM's close by and a few restaurants also within walking distance but really you need a car or taxi to get to the livelier Bradenton waterside restaurants. A taxi is around $22 one way.
We finished our stay refreshed but everyone would have liked longer, in fact we rented homes in Nashville, Memphis and Austin during this trip but this Bradenton home was universally voted the best by our rather demanding group.
Communication with Debbie was good, easy and cheerful. My only very minor gripe would be that in making payments from Europe I am always nervous that they land correctly. With this property I had to chase for confirmation that payment had been received so if you guys can add a prompt confirmation to the booking you have the perfect vacation set up. Thanks for a great stay in a lovely home.
Steve, Thank you so much for your wonderful review...we are so glad you enjoyed the vacation home and love the long and great review you wrote...we hope you come back soon! Sorry about your gripe with payment, all of it goes thru VRBO, as it is set up in their system, so when a payment is made they do send out a confirmation from their end, we don't do it, it comes automatically from them..so sorry there was a problem on that end...hopefully there won't be any in the future. Thanks again!!!
Spotless, well maintained neighborhood home with easy access to local beaches
Spotless, well maintained neighborhood home with easy access to both travel routes for local beaches less than 5 miles away. The house was spacious with an abundance of sitting and dinning areas and every room had that personal touch decor. While the bedding, linens and pillows were all very nice and clean and the kitchen was very well equipped my personal favorite was the pool area. The heated salt water pool was very relaxing and enjoyable with a variety of seating options around the pool area and a hot tub nearby. With plenty of shopping and a "Painting with a Twist" close by whether your choice of the perfect vacation is relaxing in and around the pool or shopping and enjoying local attraction I highly recommend this property!
Thank you so much for the wonderful review! We are so happy you had a great time! We hope you come back and visit us again soon!
This home is only 5 miles away from the beautiful beaches of Anna Maria Island . Robinson Preserves is about 2 miles away and has a walking trail, bike trail and kayaking.
There are many attractions close by, Village of the Arts, Manatee Player Theater, Downtown Bradenton, South Florida Museum..to name a few.
