Beaches: The most wonderful beaches are found nearby on the gulf coast: St. Pete's, Clearwater, Anna Maria Island, Siesta Key and Longboat Key are a relatively short distance away. Watch the dolphins or manatees from the beaches or experience dining at the beach side restaurants for local fresh fish catches and viewing the superb sunsets. St; John's Pass north of St. Petersburg gives you the old world feel. The Fishing Piers on the Sunshine Bridge offer a different experience and provide an excellent opportunity to snag one's own 'catch of the day'.
We are snowbirds from Canada. Being brought up in the UK we find the cold winters in Canada too harsh so we look forward to visiting for an extended stay in the winter.
Judy purchased this villa in 2011
We purchased this property so we could enjoy the pleasant winters in Florida. We enjoy the beaches, restaurants and shopping and find the villa accessible to all Florida has to offer. This is particularly important now as we have grandkids who like the Disney World, Busch Gardens etc.
Because we live here for up to 6 months of the year our house is more like a home than a rental property, the kitchen is well equipped and the standard of the property is higher.
We have been to Florida 3 times and found this villa to be the nicest one we have stayed in yet.. It was like a home from home.. The kitchen was very well equipped and the villa was in excellent condition. Everything was clean, there were plenty of towels, pillows etc.
The pool was amazing. It was a lovely size and very clean. We are a family of 7 (2 adults and 5 children) and we found this villa and pool to give us all a lot of space.
Bradenton is conveniently located to visit Clearwater, Sarasota and St Petersburg.
We dealt with Judy who is the homeowner and we found her to be very helpful and always answering any questions we had.
We were very, very impressed with this villa and we will definitely visit again in the future.
If you are looking for a holiday home in Bradenton then this villa is the one for you

We have been renting this house for the past nine years. It has all the amenities one would want in a vacation home. We feel very much at home in this great neighborhood. So conveniently located to all major stores, beaches, restaurants.
This is our third year in a row staying in Judy's villa and every year it gets better and better. It is my haven - I will never tire of sitting outside at all hours of the day and enjoying the tranquility (and watching the amazing lightning storms in August, at night, across the lake). My brother-in-law rents out houses in Florida and is always amazed when he visits us, at how well-equipped our home from home is. The new barbecue this year was very easy to use, meaning eating in was as easy as eating out and the beds are unbelievably comfortable (as I can never normally sleep well anywhere away from home, yet sleep like a baby here!) The whole experience is well organised, the neighbours are lovely and even the management company representative is British! We have already started booking for next year and can't wait to go back to what is becoming my second home. Thanks again, Judy.
house is extremely clean and 25 min drives to siesta beach and lido beach as well. Kids love the pool.
Yet another fantastic stay. This villa is perfectly situated with access to many amenities. Very clean and tidy at a reasonable rate with everything you would ever need for a great holiday. This is our second stay and will be coming back again if available.
David and Aileen Crawford
Judy and Jack's villa is easily the most beautiful, best-equipped home we have ever stayed in. The whole experience of renting was a joy - the owners are efficient and helpful from beginning to end and every little thing you could possibly think of needing was provided. Myself and my family could happily wake up to the view from the lounge, across the tranquil lake for ever. The villa is perfectly placed for access to Tampa, Sarasota and Orlando but also has, close by, some of the quietest and most idyllic beaches - we swam with two 18 foot wild manatees at Coquina Beach, only 20 minutes away. There are plenty of supermarkets locally with another being built about 2 minutes away, yet the neighbourhood for the villa is quiet and friendly. We definitely intend to come back next year - it made our holiday.

Here water sports are plentiful and include parasailing, jet ski rental, kayaking and motor boat hire.
