About Richard Metz

I recently retired along with my wife. Now spending more time with our three grandchildren and traveling. I take pride in everything I own, including this carriage home, so I make sure the house is well maintained. Without exception, anyone who has rented in the past was very happy with the fair pricing and condition of the property during their stay. In fact, many people who have rented return to stay at my carriage home because of their positive experiences during their stay.

Richard Metz purchased this townhome in 2005

Why Richard Metz chose Bradenton

I bought this property about 10 years ago for my family and friends to use from time to time. It was and still is a great place to gather with my two boys and their families and my friends. However, most of the time it is unoccupied by them so I rent it to help defray expenses.

What makes this townhome unique

The view from the living room and lanai is beautiful. The unit is situated on the ground floor (no steps) and the floor plan is very functional. The master bedroom suite is separate from the other two bedrooms (with their own bathroom) and in between is an open kitchen, dining area and living room. So while each person has the privacy for sleeping the common space is open and inviting for everyone.

Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in this lovely Carriage Home for the past five years for our Christmas vacation and it has become our home away from home. Everything is perfect! The home is clean, we'll maintained, equipped with everything we need. The location, a ground floor unit, is well suited to persons with disabilities and the community of Waterlefe is beautiful. The salt water pool is warm, even on cold days, there are many pleasant walking trails within the community, while the beach and state parks are just a short drive away. The owner has been most helpful and accommodating and we plan to return for our vacation.

Outstanding Vacation Property

  • 5 of 5

The Carriage House is a beautiful property which we have used for our vacations for the past four years and we will be returning for a months stay again this June. The standard of the property is outstanding, always maintained to the highest level and when we are there it is truly home from home. Situated on Waterlefe Golf and Country Club it is an ideal location for the beaches and all essential amenaties. There is a lovely clubhouse and pool within walking distance where we have enjoyed many a glorious day. We highly recommend this property whether it be for couples or families to enjoy a very relaxing holiday.

Beautiful home, beautiful neighborhood

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful place. Stayed for a few months while our house was being built. The neighborhood is very well landscaped and the golf course view is great. Great layout offered spacious living, 2 car garage is a plus. Owner was really great. 20mins from beaches, groceries, shopping and eating close by. Definitely recommend.

Beautiful Vacation Property

  • 5 of 5

The Carriage Home is a beautifully appointed apartment, well maintained, spacious and very welcoming. Our daughter and family live on Waterlefe and so this location was ideal for us. The heated pool at the Club House is great and we enjoyed many hours there with our grandchildren. Waterlefe is only a drive away from the beautiful beaches and there are plenty of lovely eating places to choose from locally. We would love to return there in the near future and could highly recommend it as an ideal vacation rental.
