About the property

Condo in Sarasota / Bradenton, Gulf of Mexico, America, USA


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 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!

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 out...it 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 location...as far as going to beaches...and if the traffic is good...it doesn't take long.

All in all I think it is a personal choice of what you want...it 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!

Bright and Beachy!

  • 5 of 5

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!

Feels like home

  • 5 of 5

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!!

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!
