If you are looking for a serene, relaxing, home away from home THIS IS IT! I had an amazing 7 day stay and even a bit of rain did not ruin the vacation. The view is spectacular and watching all the wildlife is a treat! The property is well kept and not far from Anna Marie Island. The dolphin cruise from paradise boat tours is a must! Enjoyed every minute and you will too!
This villa was amazing everything was fab clean, very spacious and the view was to die for. Sat outside watching the wildlife for hours saw everything from dolphins,manatees, baby sharks just like being in your own wildlife programme.
The only thing the villa lacked was a safe could really do with one other than that was perfect.
Loved going down to Anna Marie island favourite place became city pier lovely place to go and chat to the locals.
Recommend going to Clearwater aquarium the boat trip which is included was the best one we went on by far.
Can't wait to visit Brandenton again feel so much more to see and do.
Great house and location. Very much enjoyed the private view from the bay (especially wildlife like pelicans, cranes, and jumping fish). The neighborhood seemed very friendly and appreciate a gentleman who warned us about seasonal vultures that would circle in numbers. Besides that occasional issue, the house and location
was fantastic :)
The house is much more than the pictures show... warm pool, very private, close to lots of places. Best ever
As soon as we walked in I said "Man we are going to have to come here next year. The house was bigger and better than we expected. The only bad thing was the nats eat us alive. Fishing was awesome.
We picked from the Internet for the wonderful view over Palma Sola Bay and it was everthing we hoped for. Spent a lot of time emulating Otis Redding, yes you got it Sittin on the dock. While there we saw mullet jumping, Ospreys fishing and dolphins swimming all just outside the back door. Or you could view them from the pool just as easily. Now to be honest I have stayed in better equipped properties in the area over the years but the property contains all the basics for a great holiday. It's well equipped with games a jigsaws and the like but you would do well to find them, part of the lounge suite is an otterman and they are inside there. Which brings me nicely onto my next point information about the area, this is the only place I have stayed in in the area that was not awash with brochures for everything that is going on in the area, I know the letting agents have a portal but we found it conflicted with the owners information in the property and was focuses on AMI when there is so much more in the area. I would have been happier if the place was equipped with a safe and as an ex policeman I think the general security of the property could do with a second look. I will be very specific to the agents about this. No reading materials in the property so for those who follow me I have left a pile of the books my wife and I got through while Sittin on the dock. None of this is bad though just little pointers to help those that follow. We have realy enjoyed our stay and I am sure those that follow will love the place. We never use the same place twice, life's too short but I would recommend this place to anyone looking for a relaxing holiday.
