Peaceful, Good location, Clean - April 2017
My husband, our 3 year old son and I stayed for 9 nights in this lovely home. The pictures on this site are out of date but the basics are correct. The dining table, kitchen appliances, living room sofa, and upstairs patio furniture are different but nicer than in the pictures. This is a bright and spacious home with everything you will need for a relaxing stay. The kitchen appliances are actually brand new, whoever the cleaners are did a great job and I didn't feel like I needed to rewash dishes, floors or linens (like I have done in the past with other VRBO properties). There was some dry goods that I assume were left by the previous renters (pepper, salt, tea...) and some cleaning supplies and some spare toilet paper which was thoughtful although we brought all our own. I have found in other properties that there is just the bare essentials (a bar of soap for washing hands and 1 roll of toilet paper for each bathroom) so it's nice to go into a place where either the cleaners are respectful enough not to take the extras left behind or the property manager has made it clear what is appropriate to leave instead of throwing out. So in return, we left our extras for the next person. There were games to play, umbrellas and chairs for the beach (which was not too far of a drive away), and some floats for the pool. Our 3-year old had such a nice time and we felt so relaxed. The neighbourhood is nice - gated community in Heritage Harbour area. By the way, we poked around the area and as you enter the Heritage Harbour neighbourhood you can find a beautiful playground for the kids in "Central Park" near the lighthouse landmark. It was only a 2 minute drive to the park from this property (too far to walk but very close and convenient). Our child met other kids to play with at the park and there were picnic tables and shaded areas with benches. The property manager was friendly and helped me with any questions I had. The only thing that kept it from being 5 star was that the bed in the master was too firm and all the pillows were very hard. I highly recommend staying here!
Perfect holiday home, very clean well maintained. Perfect location for beach and shopping, easy to find after a long journey from Manchester & Orlando. Definitely booking again & would reccomend.
Florida November 2016
A very pleasant villa, nice and quiet with all the conveniences and facilities that we wanted. Very comfortable with a lovely pool and patio (lanai). The property was superb and well maintained.
Nicely situated in a secure gated community, we were able to come and go as we pleased withiur any fuss or bother. Shopping, dining, entertainment and of course the beaches all within easy reach.
We both loved our stay here and would recommend this villa to any future visitors. If we go to Bradenton again, this would be the first property we would look at for an available booking.
Thanks to the owner, and the property manager for providing us with the accommodation for what was one of our most enjoyable holidays.
Our favourite villa in Florida
Had a wonderful time in this luxurious and spacious villa, which has been very well looked after by its owners. The booking process was simple and smooth. And the photos don't do the villa justice - it is even better than it looks on this site. The pool is unusually large and the first floor deck is a fantastic feature. The villa is in a lovely, quiet gated community; but be aware that you need a car to get to local shops and restaurants. There are many options within a short drive though. And it's very easy to navigate to larger towns and cities such as Sarasota and Tampa if you feel like heading further afield. We would have liked higher water pressure in the main shower as rinsing shampoo etc could be a bit slow, but this was a minor issue when compared to all the many positives. All in all, we were very sad to have to leave on our last day; and we would love to return in the not too distant future. There is a lot of competition for villa rental in Florida, but this property is the best we've ever stayed in.
We were over the moon to be staying at this beautiful villa. From the moment we arrived we felt at home and relaxed. The kids (two demanding teenagers) loved the size of the pool and the upstairs breakout area. The villa was very spacious and everything was of a very high standard.
Anthony was very easy to deal with and responded via email promptly. Would recommend very highly.
A real home from home.
We felt so spoilt renting this villa, we have stayed in many rentals over the last 17 years but this was by far the best. It felt like we were borrowing a home not renting a villa.
It is a lovely, quiet neighbourhood. It is close to local shops and restaurants but also handy as a base for exploring further afield.
We had to contact the management agency, Martin, during our stay as we lost the internet and the service was exceptional and our issue resolved very quickly. He also visited the villa during our stay.
We cant recommend this villa highly enough.
