Guestbook comments from the owner

...a lovely home...we thoroughly enjoyed our stay....The internet pictures don't do justice to how charming it is. It is one of the nicest places we have stayed in easy it was to get a golf membership for the month at the Perserve. They were friendly and it was a considerable savings for us as we play golf about 4 or 5 times a week!

We stayed at CherLyon for the month of December, 2014. Others have commented that the pictures do not do the condo justice; as it was gorgeous. Quite a bit of detail went into the furnishings, it was beautiful. We liked the idea that the community was not gated giving guests easy access when visiting. We also enjoyed having the community pool only steps away from our front door. The neighborhood is quiet and very well taken care of. Just off Route 70, it is very convenient to shopping, dining, the airport and interstate.

We would recommend this to anyone looking to rent in the Bradenton area.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind words about your two month stay in our ground floor end unit condo. We always strive to provide the necessary amenities to make your stay enjoyable such as WiFi Internet access, the very short walk to the community's heated pool, our location in an 18 hole golf course setting, and the tranquil view from the lanai make anyone's extended Florida stay a wonderful getaway and pleasure. Our proximity to stores, shopping, cultural and sporting venues make our condo an ideal winter retreat. The friendly neighbors and our quiet location are an added bonus. We look forward to your return next year for another extended stay.
