Beautiful villa ideally located in quiet residential area.

  • 5 of 5

Immaculately presented villa that was a home from home with the added bonus of a pool, great weather and an array of wildlife that visited the surrounding lake throughout the day. Thouroughly enjoyed our stay and would certainly return to this villa if we returned to this part of the Gulf Coast.

Beautiful, clean and very well equipped home.

Very quiet peaceful area with great access to grocery stores and golf.

Pool is warm enough to swim in even on chilly days.

We loved the place and will be back.

Lovely villa with lakeview

  • 5 of 5

The villa has everything you could hope for. It has a modern kitchen with all appliances required. Four light and spacious bedrooms. A large terrace with a heated swimming pool. Wildlife in the lake.

There is easy access to many of the best beaches in Florida. Extensive shopping opportunities including the Ellenton Outlet. Many good restaurants nearby. All in all we had a great time in lovely villa.

Golf Vacation

  • 4 of 5

The home was described very well as noted in the listing. Four Canadian golfers stayed for 1 week at this location. Very comfortable and close to many great golf courses in the area. The property was very clean and located in a very quite part of town. The owner answer all question that we had in a timely manner. Overall we had great time!
