A little bit of Heaven

  • 5 of 5

Our family just left this place, we spent three week here. (February 25th to March 18th of 2017) Our two grandchildren ages 14 and 15 enjoyed fishing and swimming in the heated pool. Mott Aquarium nearby was great place. Circus featuring Nik Wallender so much fun. From the dock we saw Manatees and dolphins. The sunrises were spectacular. It was so quiet and relaxing sitting with friends looking over the vast expanse of the river. Lots to see and do close by. We'd love to go back, if available, next year. We highly recommend this beautiful house .

Christmas Bliss

  • 4 of 5

Thank you for sharing your home with us. We had a wonderful time. The location and setting was magnificent. My only recommendation would be to increase the amount of bath towels and dish towels. I felt we were washing everyday for the 8 people in our party. Otherwise, everything was perfect.

The house is simply gorgeous in a beautiful quiet neighborhood; quality furnishings, appliances, very clean, very spacious. Is as described, but seeing is really believing the beauty of the house and surrounding neighborhood. Sunrise in the morning over the inter-coastal, pelicans fishing all day long, dolphins swimming, manatees-a nature lovers paradise. Any minor issues with the house (there was no gas for the bbq and one of the shower drains was plugged) when we arrived were resolved immediately and professionally. The owners are wonderful to deal with as is the local agent/manager. The house is centrally located allowing for easy access to sight seeing in the area: major highways/Brandenton downtown are only a short drive away as are shops, grocery stores, etc. Getting to the beaches on Anna Maria Island is a bit tricky especially on weekends as the only two access roads to the Island fill with traffic early in the day. We chose to visit the beaches either very early or late during the day and avoided weekends so as to avoid traffic jams. There is lots to do in the Brandenton/ Sarasota /Tampa/ St. Petersburg area and the house was perfectly situated. I would highly recommend this property.

Maintenant en français, nous sommes des amis des propriétaires, nous avons été reçu magnifiquement comme leur maison, qui est superbement située avec une vue splendide sur la manatee (riviére) où le passage des pélicans et autres oiseaux est merveilleux, vous êtes dans un autre monde, de calme, de plénitude, la maison en elle-même une bâtisse trés confortable, avec de grandes piéces, aison grandiose par son emplacement et son confort.

Les propriétaires sont des personnes adorables sachant recevoir.

Les plages sont à 10 minutes, les restaurants et bars au village de Cortez sont fameux

The ideal vacation home

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for the perfect place to relax and forget about reality, you have found it. This house is designed to make you enjoy life and the pleasures around you. Sitting just steps away from the waterfront, the view is breathtaking. You can enjoy the beautiful sunrise, if you're an early riser, or take in the sunset if the evening is more your style. We enjoyed many days and nights fishing from the dock. It is very quiet and relaxing, making it easy to forget that you are just there temporarily.

The house is incredible inside and out. There are many bedrooms and bathrooms, so plenty of room for a large group. It is very spacious, so even if there are many of you, you still have privacy. It is very clean and very contemporary in design.

If you like the beach, you're in luck, because it's just a quick drive to some of the most beautiful beach spots in Florida. It's also very quick and easy access to many wonderful restaurants and bars. One our favorites is the Sand Bar, great place to put your toes in the sand and enjoy a refreshing drink.

If the beach isn't for you, no worries, there is an incredible pool that looks directly out at the water. It's also a great addition to those beach days, when you come home covered in sand and hot from the sun!!

I highly recommend this home to anyway who is looking to escape to the beautiful state of Florida and enjoy all that it has to offer. We hope to return again soon, and we will definitely be staying here.

We had an wonderful time with my husband and ours daughters. The house is located near the beach ( 9 miles ), we have been every day on Anna Maria Island. Very charming island with colored wood houses.

Our home was in a quiet area with beautiful houses , very luminous, spacious.

We enjoyed fishing on the dock. Some days we have seen dolphins, and birds ( egret,pelican...) .

We'll come back for sure...
