They started buying houses and renovating them in 2009. Ann went to Penn State University. Her career has been in Information Technology. Ben now has his Ph.D. in Neuroscience.

Why We Chose Heritage Harbour?

Location, location, location. The location on the water couldn't be better and geographically has the best of both worlds -- a lovely quiet lake view overlooking hole #5 that is also centrally located near everything you need. The house itself is full of light, spacious and comfortable. The location is perfect for exploring the Gulf Coast - convenient to Tampa, St. Petersburg, Orlando, Venice and Sarasota. You can create the Florida vacation of your dreams -- it is all nearby!

The Unique Benefits at this House:

It is a great place to hang out in, whether you like to swim, sun, take saunas, bird watch, boat, kayak, paddle board or barbecue, and is also a great jumping off point for trips to parks and beaches. There are also loads of cultural activities a few minutes away in Bradenton (Riverwalk, museum, performing arts center), and Sarasota is a reasonable trip as well. The outlet mall is 7 miles away where incredible bargains can be found and we are also 7 miles away of the brand new University Mall in Sarasota. We have taken great care to furnish and stock this house with everything to make you go 'wow' and like us, you'll never want to leave!

Very Nice & Cozy Updated Beach Cottage!

  • 5 of 5

Our family just stayed here on 7/20/17 & We were pleasantly delighted to drive up & see a well manicured landscape...Once we walked in we saw how the owners took time to make this cottage look so pretty & updated! The home is very spacious, all 3 bedrooms were good in size 2 being master bedroom size..The bathrooms were very clean & home was fully equipped..The home also had 3 convenient outside entertainment spaces..plenty of room for family get togethers..The kitchen was my favorite place! Stainless steel appliances worked well & the kitchen was pretty! The neighborhood was very peaceful too. Owners were quick to respond to any questions I had & were very flexible within a limit of course! This was our 1st family vacation on the gulf coast & we would definitely rebook this property!!! We HIGHLY recommend this home if you want to be centrally located to everything! Especially the fact that so many pristine beaches are just minutes away!! Thank you Ben & Ann for your hospitality❤

Not an exaggeration, best stay I've ever had.

  • 5 of 5

Honestly, the photos don't do this place justice. WAY more spacious than you'd expect, and the whole property is decorated beautifully. I stayed here with four of my friends and we easily could have fit double that, comfortably. Fenced-in back yard, nice neighborhood, and everything you could possibly need is provided. And really, I can't say enough about the owners. They were incredibly friendly and helpful, and they made sure we all felt right at home. Hands-down, best rental property I've ever stayed at. Also, if you're into Vietnamese food, there's a great little noodle bar right down the street.

This updated cottage was perfect for our group of four as we explored the Sarasota area. It’s in a nice, quiet neighborhood and walking distance to great restaurants and activities on the Manatee River. During our short stay we were able to explore Anna Marie Island, Siesta Key, St Armands Key and some fantastic waterfront restaurants. The house was spotless, up to date, great wifi, 4K TV with Netflix and comfy beds. The master is amazing! We were only there for four days but we will definitely be back for a longer stay.

Be Prepared to Be Impressed!!!

  • 5 of 5

It's true...Don't waste your time searching for anything else.. This house is the perfect little vacation spot. The landlords are awesome and the property and house are well kept and very clean. The house is much bigger than it appears in pictures and has a couple of great screened patios to relax on. You are about 20 mins to the closest beach and less than 5 to the Marina. The rooms are spacious and beds are comfortable. We had no complaints and completely enjoyed our stay. Book it! You won't be disappointed.
