The dining table extends to seat 6, and the living room has Smart Cable TV, DVD and some books, DVDs and games to enjoy.

About Debbie J Boyes

We live on the South Coast of England close to Poole Harbour. We love our home - but we love to travel to other beautiful places too!

Why Debbie J Boyes chose Bradenton

Between us we have travelled most of the world, but this little bit of Florida offers it all! We have been coming here for over 20 years and just keep coming back!

Some days we love to just chill out and go shell hunting on the beautiful beaches, and enjoy the dolphins, birds and manatees. Other times we like to play golf or tennis - and what a choice we have. When we feel like some culture we head for the historic Ringling Museum or Gamble Plantation etc. We can eat fabulous dinners or laid back Floridian fair. And when a bit of shopping is on the list - there are plenty of places to satisfy!

What makes this apartment unique

We hope we have created a beautiful, happy, well equipped "home from home" for ourselves - and hope that you will love it as much as we do.

We would like to welcome our guests again and again, so we have done all we can think of to make it special. However, if there is something you would particularly enjoy whilst you are on holiday, please let us know and we will do our best to accomodate you!

Too many rental properties look tired and unloved - this one is most definitely loved!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Bed was like a cloud! So nice to come back to. You forget nothing - we will return!

Beautiful Condo

  • 5 of 5

Debbie has a beautiful condo that is in the perfect location. Only minutes from the beach. Although I was on a work trip and not vacation, just a wonderful place to come back and relax. Beautifully decorated. Quiet. Debbie is wonderful to work with. Easy communication. Really kept me informed on things going on, such as the hurricane arriving when I was supposed to begin my stay. Would definitely recommend and will definitely stay again.

A little bit of paradise!!

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we walked through the door it felt like home. Comfortable, relaxing, beautifully furnished and very clean. Everything we could and would need for our stay. My daughter has a little girl of 5 and a baby of 10 months. Debbie kindly provided a travel cot and as we have friends in the area the brought us a high chair and a few baby toys. The baby wasn't crawling when we arrived but a week later she was, so thanks for the stair gate too. (Good thinking Debbie) The beds were so so comfortable & we all slept really well. Great to have the utility room and be able to wash, dry and iron clothes as and when required. It was also lovely to be able take them home clean. There were plenty of towels, bedding etc. Pool towels and beach towels were also provided. The condo is situated minutes away from the pool. The grounds are well maintained and it was reassuring to have gated entry. Shops & restaurants are in walking distance. Beaches are 5 miles (10 minutes) away, down one straight road. We have stayed in the area before and have been coming to Bradenton for 17 years.

Our stay at Debbie's condo endorsed once again how much we love this area.

We call it our little bit of Paradise!

Nice...but disappointed.

  • 3 of 5

First of all...let me say that Debbie is very nice to work with...and if there is a problem ...she is very efficient with getting it solved.

But the condo itself was disappointing to us. First of all lots of steps to the condo. This is also a condo with no grilling area in the whole complex. We love grilling out. So that was a problem for us. The third thing that we did not like about the condo is there is no deck or balcony... In order to go was going up and down the 16 steps... You just felt like you were in a box.

The security gate was broken quite a few times while we were there. However, they always tried to fix it. There is a cute little building that is attached to the pool...but we weren't allowed in it.

The good things about the condo was a very comfortable bed. The mattress was wonderful. Also the condo was in a good far as going to beaches...and if the traffic is doesn't take long.

All in all I think it is a personal choice of what you just wasn't a good choice for us.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to write your response. I had no idea that you wanted a grilling area or a balcony and I also do not advertise these things. Our condo is one short flight of stairs up! The community building you mention is used for specific social events which are advertised on the board outside, but the lovely seating area in front of it and the toilets are always available. I try my absolute best to help people have a wonderful stay, and it is just a shame that you didn't ask me for clarification on the things you specifically wanted. Otherwise I am glad that you enjoyed the beautiful bed!

Our Condo is only 10 minutes drive to the most beautiful beaches in Florida. There are areas on the beaches where you can BBQ. Boat hire is close by and there are local fishing charters available.


Sarasota/Bradenton airport 20 minutes. Tampa airport 55 minutes.


It is only a short walk to a number of restaurants, an 8 screen cinema and for all your essentials Walmart is only 2 minutes drive away.

We chose our Condo because it had easy access to both Sarasota and Bradenton and all the wonderful things to do in the area.

Further Details:

We have produced a comprehensive Guest Book to help you make the most of your stay - including a location where, if you get up early and are lucky, you can see Manatees in the wild!
