Great location for golf and shopping and still close enough to the beach

  • 4 of 5

Great owners who did everything they could do to make your vacation go smoothly, property was maintained very well, house was well stocked. House is situated on a quiet street in quiet golf community which was great for walks either first thing in the morning or evening, close to great shopping and golfing and restaurants and only 20 min from Anna Marie island beaches. Only downside was the inside could use some freshening up. We would go back there if available next time we are vacationing in Florida

Gorgeous and completely stocked!

This home was spacious and completely stocked with everything we needed during our stay. If we visit the same area again, we will definitely stay here.

Everyone was pleased!

  • 4 of 5

The is a lovely, well kept house, (only in my opinion I think it could use a bit of updating on the décor), nonetheless, we enjoyed the privacy of having a house to ourselves, and the convenience of the pool was a BIG hit with the kids. There was nothing that we needed to run out and get for our stay, other than our daily food, as the house is very stocked. The golf course views were amazing and sitting in the pool at night is just as calming. I would definitely recommend this property, HomeAway and VRBO to anyone.

Thank you for opening up your home to us vacationers.

Thank you for shairnf your home with us!

Home from home

  • 5 of 5

This Floridian home is a great place to relax by the pool overlooking the golf course. If you want a game of golf or a practice session on the driving range there are some golf clubs provided in the home.

The golf club has a daily happy hour frequented by other friendly golfers.

The home is always clean and it's well equipped, the owner occupies it regularly and ensures the maintenance is up to date.

The pool is south facing with solar heating such that we were able to swim comfortably in January, great considering it was snowing in UK.

There are lots of good eateries in Bradenton for instance:

On Anna Marie Island there are 2 beach restaurants, ' The Beach House' and 'The Sandbar'.

'The Reef and Grill' on pier at Palmetto has a happy hour on drinks and nibbles whilst watching the sun setting.

'The Dutch Kitchen' in Sarasota provides excellent Amish cooking.

The home has cable TV in the bedroom and the Great room, useful even if it is American.

Fabulous home

  • 5 of 5

What a fantastic house. Listing as described, in fact it's even better than described. It's massive and I don't think the pictures do it justice. The property was so clean, you couldn't find a speck of dust. The oven looked like it had never been used. Everything was in great condition. Nice comfy sofa. Beautifully comfy beds, lovely smelling laundry with another clean set in the cupboard. Loads of towels. Pool area was lovely with nice modern furniture. Air conditioning worked well and was easy to use, it also switched to heating very quickly.

The area was nice and quiet. Everyone looks after their houses with neatly trimmed lawns. The garden/pool area looks onto the 18th hole of the course. The golfers are very considerate when passing. The men in our party played golf and thoroughly enjoyed it. It was also easy to find.

The owners provided great customer service, answering our questions almost immediately.

I would definately recommend this house. You can't go wrong.

We had some nice meals in ana Maria oyster bar and Yacht Sea Grille. We also went to Walts Fish Mart in Sarasota. Nice fresh fish. Ellenton Outlet Mall is great for shopping and only 15 minutes away. We found the best regular mall is Westfield at Southgate in Sarasota.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for your wonderful review. As previous renters and now also owners, we are always trying to do our utmost to make our guests' stay memorable. Most of the time we are getting very favourable reviews, but unfortunately not always through the Home Away site - certainly not as extensive as this review. Therefore we are quite happy with your kind words and hope that potential renters will take advantage from it. Fred Zoun (owner).
