My wife and I recently rented the Studio for 15 days and we absolutely loved it. The grounds are beautifully landscaped and you really get the old Florida feel. Being able to walk down to the Braden River and relax at the end of the day was a plus. The owner Bob Batts is a great host and made us feel more than welcome. The Studio has a full kitchen and we were able to prepare most of our meals when were weren't next door at the Linger Lodge dining on Gator, Frogs Legs and Grouper. We've already booked our return trip in 2017.
We loved our short stay in the Braden River Bayou cottage. Though the cottage is not large, it had all the amenities that we needed. Although we were close to Sarasota and other Florida locations, the actual studio and cottage felt like we were miles away. Our host, Bob Batts, was very helpful and friendly. We will return there!

My husband and I had rented the "cottage" on this property that had been previewed on trip advisor before the owner had completed this current featured listing. We rented it for the month of February.
The accommodation we feel was represented inaccurately.
Listed as a "cottage" the one room plus small bathroom did not have a kitchen, just a small refrig and small microwave.
We would not recommend the site for more that a few days at best and be prepared to eat all meals out. We ended up leaving the following morning after a 1 night stay and were only reimbursed 500.00 of the monthly amount.
