Condo in Sarasota / Bradenton, Gulf of Mexico, America, USA
GET AWAY FROM THE COLD AND STAY FOR CHRISTMAS 2016 and NEW YEAR 2017!
A Little Bit of Paradise Close to Anna Maria Beaches! Decorated with light Floridian colours and a beachside theme, we know that once you stay here you won't want to stay anywhere else again.
The master bedroom features a beautiful white 4 poster bed, with luxurious linens. The guest room is also beautifully appointed. With its split bedroom layout, 2 bathrooms and a walk in closet in each bedroom, all guests have both space and privacy.
The dining table extends to seat 6, and the living room has Smart Cable TV, DVD and some books, DVDs and games to enjoy.
Only a few steps away, start or end your day with a swim in the pretty pool. The most beautiful beaches in Florida are only 10 minutes drive away - so hire a boat or simply go for a stroll to enjoy. The condo is central to shops and theatres - and you can even walk to the movies or out for dinner!

About the Owner
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 Florida South Central Gulf Coast
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!

Bright and Beachy!
The listing was everything it said it was! Weather was fabulous!
We enjoyed the pool every much! Met a lot of people! Cocktail hour was great. Got to hear of all the places they visited. Tell of the places we have been!
Even tho we won't be returning here, we will come back! Looking to buy our own place. I would recommend this place to anyone. It had everything we needed plus! Very warm and welcoming, it felt like home!
We had a great time with Jeff's family! Which we don't get to see often enough! I know they enjoyed having us here. They're only regret is that they had to work and we didn't get enough time to talk! Family joke!
Went to the Manatee County Fair with family, Strawberry Festival with family and friends. Many fine restaurants and bars, Clancy's, RJ Gators, Hurricane Grill & Wings, Sonic, Anna Maria's Oyster Bar, Long Horn Texas Steak House, Hooters, Seafood Shack, just before the island. A new find Tide Tables, oh my goodness, also just before going over the bridge to the island. So many restaurants on the island that are on the beach we enjoyed also. St Patrick's Day at Clancy's was a blast!
Went to dog track, (we didn't win, but sisters did) which we hadn't been to in years, Ringling Brothers Museum, a first, this is an all day trip. Mote Marine and Museum to see Snooty the manatee. Red Barn flee market and fresh produce. Downtown Bradenton flee market and local vendors and many shops and restaurants. St Armand Circle in Sarasota and all the shops and restaurants. Went with friends to Tervis Tumbler in Sarasota, got Christmas gifts. A couple baseball games at McKechnie Field to see the Detroit Tigers and Pittsburgh Pirates.
Went on a sunset dinner cruise with Yacht Starship in Clearwater that our kids got us for Christmas. Then meet up and stayed with a niece and her husband in St Petersburg. Went to First Friday. Which is downtown St Pete, they close off the street and bands play, vendors and restaurants a plenty.
Movie theater just down the street which we went to a couple times! There is also a movie theater in the DeSoto Mall that we visited.
These are just a few of the places and things we did. With family that has lived here since the early 80's they know all the fun places to go and visit.
Ever busy but relaxing time! Enjoyed it very much!
Jeff & April
Feels like home
We have been fortunate to stay here this winter January thru first of April 2015. Hate the thought of going back to the cold! We have had a wonderful stay! Condo is extremely comfortable and decorated very nice with Floridian style! Pool is excellent and only steps from the front door! Without a doubt I would recommend this condo for a great vacation! Debbie was extremely easy to work with!!
Paradise in Bradenton, FL!
We loved our 2 month stay in Debbie & Alan's beautiful 2nd floor condo. The listing description & photos were exactly what we saw when we walked in the door. It was very clean and the unit was decorated in a cozy, beach theme. Debbie was wonderful to work with from the moment we booked until the day we left. She called to follow up with us to see how things were going. Soon we were referring to the unit as our home. Wonderful restaurants and shopping just down the road. We loved the pool area. If you are golfers, there are courses everywhere! Loved the beach only 10 minutes away. Debbie had a great book put together with recommendations. Don't let this Paradise unit slip away. Thank you so much for a wonderful stay, Debbie & Alan!
Traveling physical therapist
As a traveling physical therapist I had the opportunity to stay in this lovely condo for 2 months while working a contract in Bradenton. The photos show exactly what you get, a clean and very nicely decorated place to stay with everything you need! The location is great, just a short drive to Anna Maria Island with very beautiful beaches. Debbie was very helpful with any questions/concerns I had and always responded immediately. I highly recommend this condo for any traveling need!
Our home away from home
After a very long and weary drive we arrived to find a beautiful home awaiting us. It was spotless, inviting and homey. The first few days we referred it as ``the condo but after that it was `home`!
The master bedroom is lovely and the bed is a dream. Like sleeping on a cloud. Had some of the best sleeps of my life on that bed.
The location is conducive to shopping and great dining. One left turn and a short drive down Cortez Road and you`re at the beach. One never tires of walks in the sand and spectacular sunsets.
Debbie is very helpful and accommodating. We appreciated the book of suggestions on things to do and see as well as the books available to help identify all the wonderful birds and little critters that call Florida home.
The only problem with our stay is that it wasn`t long enough!

Activity and Interests
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.
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!
