You will find relaxing by the pool is quite the treat and exactly what you have been looking forward due to our mild and beautiful weather year around here in Florida. The very large lanai (1,300 Sq. Ft.) features an outdoor kitchen including a gas grill, wash sink, mini fridge and seating for 12. Have fun enjoying some friendly competition for the whole family at a challenging game of Ping Pong on the lanai!!

Most recent upgrades include a completely remodeled gourmet kitchen to capture all your cooking and entertaining desires. New granite counters, cabinets and brand new stainless steel kitchen appliances have been added. Smaller appliances include a coffee pot, microwave and toaster. This kitchen is a must see and is fully loaded and stocked for your every day needs and perfect for entertaining your guests. There is an island and breakfast bar to seat four and a kitchen table to seat six and a separate formal dining area that comfortably seats six.

The home has new flooring throughout. Beautiful earth tile throughout the living area and all four bedrooms are carpeted. All bedrooms are beautifully decorated and have an abundant amount of closet space and more than enough drawer space for storage. All bedrooms provide Queen size beds and the 4th bedroom is equipped w/ two Twins.

The Master Bath has been beautifully upgraded and redesigned to include a his/her sink and a deep dish tub for those relaxing nights after a tough match of tennis, a long lazy day of golf or after walking miles of white sandy beaches.

This gorgeous home has a two car garage and a nice size laundry facility.

Centrally located within University Park Country Club you will be able to enjoy a well manicured golf course, consisting of 27 holes, designed by Ron Garl. While offering a challenge, the course is excellent for all skill levels. Surrounding the home you will find easy access to protected trails to walk, run or bike.

5 star vacation home!!

  • 5 of 5

This home was even more beautiful seen in person! Extremely clean,beautiful decor, and just well maintained as is the entire gated community it resides in. Pool is awesome with plenty of cool areas to relax when you have had enough sun for the day. Lana, the property manager is simply customer service at its best. She was so easy to work with, and quickly accommodated us with our last minute reservations! This home is surrounded with great restaurants of all types,(Loved The Half Shell),as well as shopping, including the relatively new University mall , just minutes away! Only wished we could have stayed longer!!!

We highly recommend this lovely, clean and well maintained property.

University Park Community is one of the best, very well kept, quiet and enjoyable.

We felt very welcomed upon arrival, and the overall service provided by the manager was very high. All our very high expectations was fulfilled.

Wonderful retreat!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Lana, we had an amazing time in Florida! The house was great....all we can say is great things about it! Everything was provided to make our stay very comfortable....a "home away from home"! The place is beautiful and we will certainly recommend to our friends and hope to be back soon. Would highly recommend this house for larger family unions or just a nice week away! A++++++

Elite vacation rental in quiet neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

This home is everything as advertised. It was clean, well equipped and well managed. We walked through the 29 mile of neighborhood sidewalks with our dog every day and everyone waved and exchanged pleasant greetings. It was nice to have a coded garage door opener for those walks. The owners and manager have taken great pains to include everything for a great vacation. The outdoor ping pong table was top notch. The gas grill was used many times to grill those fabulous Detweiller steaks and the padded outdoor furniture was great when the weather cooperated. We have never had such a nice TV system in a vacation rental before so we used the DVR to record our programs and had evening entertainment when it rained. We only used 3 of the bedrooms and Lana even bought a memory foam mattress topper for my bed to give me a softer surface. The other mattresses were very comfortable without any topper. I was able to bake cookies with all the supplies in the kitchen (mixer, blender, grill,toaster and can opener) were all high quality.

There were plenty of cleaning supplies including paper products for our 2 month stay. The home was very easy to maintain.

The pool patio got pretty dirty while we were there so it would be nice if the pool guy power washed the deck every 2 weeks or so.

There are lots of options for exercise, but we joined the LA Fitness for 2 months, but you can also join the country club and use the fitness center on the property. We didn't eat at the club restaurant because there were so many options within 2 miles of the home that were good. Everyone bent over backwards to accommodate any issues and I was very impressed with the good communication from Lana, the manager. We plan to return next year!

Wonderful Vacation home

  • 5 of 5

We rented the house for 10 days over Christmas. We were there with our 2 boys( 9 and 12 years old). The location was great in a very nice and quiet Golf community close to Sarasota and Siesta Key beach and Lido beach.

The description of the property was super accurate. The owners and Lana, the property manager were very kind and helpful. The communication was always easy via email or phone. Lana answered always promptly.

The house is very nice and clean. The kitchen is stuffed with everything you need.

I was impressed. They provided also stuff like kitchen paper rolls, toilet paper, tissues, cleaners, dish washer and washer detergent. I like that, because I don't want to bring everything and I don't like to shop for that if I am on vacation for 10 days. There were enough towels and beach towels too.

The house is furnitured in a contemporary style what we really liked. The master bath was huge and with a very nice shower and tub. There is a huge dressing room with enough hangers( these a little things, but so annoying if there are not enough) The only little complain was the queen sized bed in the master bed room.

We enjoyed the sound system, the nice outdoor furniture, the pink pong table and of course the nice pool. Our boys had so much fun and again they had a lot of stuff for the pool too. There were also two bikes and beach chairs.

A shopping mall and grocery store are close by with lots of restaurants.

It was a short drive to Siesta Key beach and Lido Beach. The traffic was ok if you leave early. The wonderful Ringling Museum is also close by and worth a visit. We also did a fishing boat tour in Bradenton and went to the Myakka State Park to watch the Alligators. The time was to short to do some Golfing. I can't say anything about that.

I would recommend that house to friends.

Thank you for such a nice stay.
