  • Great location, Pool was Fantastic


    The home itself was roomy. We only had 5 guests but it could have easily slept 3 more. The beds were comfortable and the layout made it easy to spread out with having three teenagers. The pool, definitely the best part. We had a couple of cooler and windy days on our trip (expected in December), and even though the home is on a canal, it is tucked back in far enough that the wind didn't really bother us. We even took the kayaks out on the calmer days, but it was a bit of a challenge to get into the kayaks from the dock/ladder. We also spent every evening fishing from the dock. It was a lot of fun! We even took the owner provided bikes for rides in the community, which is absolutely adorable. You can tell that many of the homeowners take great pride in their landscaping. In regards to things nearby, the community is located on a bus route. You can ride it further inland to multiple stores and restaurants or take it across the bridge and catch the trolley in Bradenton Beach which goes the whole way up to Anna Maria Island. Both Anna Maria Island (north end) and the Bridge Street pier (mid to southern end) have a bunch of shops, bars, and restaurants to explore. And of course, if it is warm enough, you have plenty of beach access at the southern end. Lots to do and explore, cannot wait to come back!
