I have stayed at this property on a few occasions, most recently December 6 to 12, 2018. The residence is spacious, open, very comfortable and clean. The furnishings are new and well cared for. The pool is basically located at the door step and the balcony in the premise allows for overseeing the pool and perhaps any friends, family or children you may wish to observe. The property is gated so it is very safe. When at the residence, there is a sense of tranquility and that you have escaped the hectic pace of our world. That being said, this property is wonderfully located, just minutes from just about everything you could possibly want. Getting to and from where ever you wish to go or to whatever you wish to do is a piece of cake. Anna Maria Island with its incredible restaurants, Long Boat Key, Sarasota and St. Armand’s Circle and all it has to offer are minutes away in really uncongested traffic. Bradenton, itself, and Lakewood Ranch can also be reached in the briefest of time. So, what you have is a wonderful place to relax, put your feet up, go for a swim and feel that the rest of world doesn’t exist, until you want it and then it is right at your door step. Perhaps I should also mention that the land and waterscape are incredibly beautiful.
