The villa is located on a small peaceful walled community only fifteen minutes from I75 and approximately 20-30 minutes from the closet beach. It is very well suited to gain access to the local Bradenton beaches (Anna Maria Island) or to go on the I75 to the world famous beaches at Siesta Keys and Turtle Beach (our favourite).
There are many golf courses within a few minutes of the villa and the nearest shops and eateries are one mile away (dependent on heat though you may still wish to drive).
The villa has a very private pool/lanai area which is not over looked at the back and 6’ hedges to each side, and has the sun on it from 9/10ish in the morning (dependent on time of year), until the sun sets at night. The lanai is fully screened for insects and overlooks a small lake/large pond (depending on your point of view) and enables you to watch the array of wildlife you get throughout the day. We do have a pair of binoculars for guests use. We have even seen a baby alligator (only once in thirteen years though so a rare occurrence). The sunsets are wonderful and eating alfresco is a perfect end to a day. There is a large table with chairs for 6 as well as 4 loungers and two easy chairs. A gaz bbq is available for hire and we have provided none breakable crockery and tumblers for use on the lanai.

There is room in the garage for you to keep your car out of the heat of the day.

There are four bats and plenty of balls.
We keep a large umbrella and base in the garage for use on the lanai (for those who would like a little shade in the afternoon), but ask that it not be left up unattended to prevent any damage caused by wind, as well as many toys for both the pool and for the beach. There are beach umbrellas, chairs, mats, beach trolley, fishing gear, boogey boards, there are plenty of children’s spades, buckets, spade models also kept in a box and string bag (so we don’t get the beach back in the garage!). There is also a large cool box on wheels for those wishing to picnic. Ice bags are kept in the freezer for this, as well as paper plates, napkins, cutlery, plastic tumblers for use on a picnic. We also have a basketball and volleyball for use at the community area –not for use on the lanai – as well as four tennis rackets and plenty of balls.
