About the property

4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, sleeps 8

This villa completed in August 2005 is situated on the golf course at Heritage Harbour which is a well designed community, close to I-75 with many amenities. The villa comprises 4 double bedrooms and sleeps 8. One has a king bed, one a queen, and the other two are twin bedded. It has 2 bathrooms (one en-suite with a large separate shower), and a fully equipped kitchen with the latest appliances including microwave, large washer and drier. The large open plan living area looks out over the golf course with the 3rd green running from right to left. The westerly aspect is particularly lovely in the evening with the sun setting over an uninterrupted view to the boundary of the course with a small lake to the right. The large screened lanai covers a 28 foot long swimming pool which has a handrail and steps leading to the shallow end and extends to a 6 foot depth at the other. The patio has sun loungers and a dining table and chairs for enjoying the sun and eating outdoors.

The House Surroundings: This villa and the surrounding area offer a holiday that will appeal to all types of people but especially the golfer. A group of friends could enjoy a relaxed and very varied time be it the nearby low cost golf courses, discount shopping and nightlife available in nearby Sarasota. Families will appreciate the private pool and closeness to the lovely endless clean sandy beaches. The on site facilities are available for guests to use and include, Fishing Lake, Tennis Courts, Children’s Playground and Golf Club Resturant.

The Florida West Coast Environment: The wildlife of the area will surprise visitors who have not been to this part of Florida before. The many wetland areas around the golf course and houses are a haven for water birds and waders. The Sand Hill Cranes stand about 3ft 6in. tall and are very impressive when they come to edge of the property for early morning forage. Myaka State Park is close by and offers boat rides on the lake with local rangers describing the local wildlife including the alligators which can be viewed around the shoreline.

Anna Maria Island is home to many seabirds including Pelicans who make impressive dives into the sea for fish. Many different shells and ancient sharks’ teeth can be collected on the beach adding to the enjoyment. Dolphins can be seen quite close into shore so a pair of binoculars is a must for those interested in local wildlife.

The Island also is one of the older communities with many colourful original wood frame houses adjacent to magnificent sweeping beaches.

Our home away from home

  • 5 of 5

We have been holidaying in Bradenton for a number of years. However, 3 years ago, we discovered that the property that we usually rented had been sold and we therefore went on the hunt for a new base to spring board around the Florida area. There are a number of properties to rent in this area but having looked at the impressive pictures and the proximity to beaches/amenities, we contacted Judith for a quote. Judith is extremely helpful and accommodating, often going above and beyond what is expected from an owner.

We have spent the past 3 years in this property for a large part of our summer holidays. It is in a very safe community surrounded by local amenities and the owners have thought of absolutely everything to make your stay comfortable! It is situated only 45 minutes from Busch Gardens, 2 hours from Orlando (including theme parks) and 20-25 minutes from beautiful sandy beaches.

Judith, Thankyou for allowing us to share your home with us. Hopefully, we will be back next year :)

Such an immaculate and tastefully presented villa!

  • 5 of 5

We spotted this villa on the HomeAway site and was impressed by the pictures and description. We actually rearranged our holiday weeks in order to stay there and I have to say I'm so glad we did because in reality our expectations were more than exceeded! The villa is spacious and very tastefully and immaculately presented. It is on a gated golf community and as such feels very safe within an extremely well kept environment. It is very well placed for many gulf beaches with some only a short drive away. We particularly loved going to Anna Maria beach for the 4th July fireworks!

There were so many nice and welcome touches that make this villa very much a home from home, we particularly appreciated the beach umbrellas and chairs which made trips to the beach possible even in the mid 90s heat, to the excellent supply of towels and a well stocked pantry cupboard with items that just made life easier!

Judith was very professional, informative and accommodating, we would love to return in the future and would have no hesitation in recommending this to family or friends.

Lovely Villa & Pool!

  • 5 of 5

Thank-you Judith for sharing your lovely holiday home with us.

We found it to be a very well equipped, clean and very comfortable Villa.

Lovely pool area, golfers not a problem at all, in fact quite entertaining at times.

Fabulous location with interstate not too far away to access the local beaches.

Supermarket Publix and 24 hour Walmart couple of minutes drive away.

Judith very friendly, helpful and professional. Absolute bonus having Fox Soccer Channel on to watch the Manchester United games!

Looking forward to returning if not later this year, definitely in 2012.

A most enjoyable holiday

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed in this villa and we were delighted. The accommodation was spacious, clean, well equipped, very nicely furnished and very comfortable. Fortunately the weather was good and we were able to sit out beside the pool watching the golfers go by. The pool is large enough to swim in and wsa just what was needed to go with the beautiful weather. We are hoping to go again in the not too distant future and I have no hesitation in reccommending this villa to anyone wishing to have an enjoyable stay in Florida.

Conveniently located off Interstate 75 exit 220, Heritage Harbour is a new development of villas with easy access to the Gulf Coast beaches of Anna Maria Island, Bradenton, Longboat Key and the white sands of Siesta Key. There are supermarkets and restaurants within 10 minutes drive and the Outlet Shopping Mall at Ellenton is one stop north on the interstate. Here you can find outlets for Gap, Ralph Lauren, Nike and many others. The nearest theme park is Busch Gardens 50 mins drive away with the Disney parks at Orlando about 100 mins distance. The golf course of Stoneybrook is on site and there are many others that will take pay by day golfers providing an excellent base for a golfing holiday all year round.

Other Activities: Bird watching both within the wetland areas of Heritage Harbour and also at the coast.

Golf: Stoneybrook golf course is great for all abilities offering a challenging round of golf at competitive prices. The course has a number of very attractive and picturesque holes, with the added hazard of water on almost every hole. The course is well maintained through out the year and to add to it has a great water driving range!

Built only within the last year is River Strand but still within Heritage Harbor's boundaries. A short drive from the house it offers three 9-hole courses all with their own different challenges. With golf starting from 30 dollars (Jan 2010) for a round including carts and club rental.

Free wifi and new 50 inch LED TV with Internet access and free netflix service
