About Julie Ellis/Captain Julie at 404 277 4487 or

We are two Kentuckians in our 50s and are looking forward to retirement one day. We found this property and loved it and hope to retire there sometime in the future. Meantime, we thought why not share it with others who will love it as much as we do? We love the water and all the things nearby that we can do: visit amazing beaches, golf nearby, go out to numerous restaurants, many that are on the water.

Why Julie Ellis/Captain Julie at 404 277 4487 or chose Bradenton

We love the house because it immediately felt like home. There is plenty of room for our 2 grandkids and of course our 2 spoiled doggies! I have recently added new furnishings and wonderful beach art that just enhances the feel and look of the interiors. Comfortable in a Florida charming way -- that's what we love and know you will too!

What makes this house unique

Located on a cul de sac makes this home quiet with a minimum amount of traffic. Pets are allowed and the shady back yard is totally fenced. The home is in a great location close to just about anything you need. It's also less than 10 miles to the beaches of Anna Maria Island. The lanai and back yard are very private. The decor is a refreshing Florida style that puts you in that laid back Florida state of mind.

Enjoyed house and Bradenton area

  • 4 of 5

House was as nice as the pictures show. House was in move in condition, with all necessary dishes, pans and utensils provided in kitchen. Dishwasher soap and laundry detergent also provided. Location was great for our needs. Within walking distance of Pirates spring training park. Took in two games. Short drive to the Riverwalk which we did several times. Recommendations from Captain Julie were helpful. Backyard was great for our Golden Retriever.

Beautiful, comfortable Florida home

  • 5 of 5

Spacious home with beautiful Florida decor. Most well-appointed kitchen we've ever seen in all our travels. Manager was extremely responsive, gave wonderful restaurant and other suggestions. Location very good for all of that area, Sarasota, Siesta Key, Anna Maria island. Really could not ask for better accomodations for a wonderful February in Fl!

Fantastic home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

This home was a home away from home! The owners thought of EVERYTHING! We had beach towels, and chairs and more to take to the many beaches - several within 30 min. Board games, kayaks and jet ski available too. The kitchen and living room were ready for my family of 5! 3 beautiful bedrooms were perfect too! We've already decided to rent this home again the next time we're in town for baseball camp, or a real vacation. This time, baseball camp led us to town, but this home made the stay relaxing and special. When we weren't at the beach or at baseball, we hung out in the screened in porch or played darts in the garage. My 11 year old chased a variety of lizards in the fenced in back yard when he wasn't hanging in our hammock that we brought and hung between the perfect trees. We bought groceries and were able to cook meals in the spacious, kitchen, that had everything we needed to prepare and eat meals- saved us a ton- and then ate out at the local restaurants for a variety of seafood! I'm still stuffed! 100's of restaurants and seafood markets waiting for you to explore! We even spent a day just hanging out at the house. Huge TV in the living room and another in the master bedroom allowed us to separate a little bit too- my mom had her own space away from kid noises.

We WILL return! Thanks Captain Julie and the home owners for sharing your home with my family! It was spectacular!
