Pros: Size and layout of the complex. Furnishings were very good.
Cons: The unit was not the same as advertised. Lacked screened balcony and kitchenette.
Location: Shopping and lots of good restuarants nearby.
Very relaxing vacation . Being a condo you feel like you are in a home which is much more comfortable than a hotel room. You are able balance between restaurant meals or making your own.

Good but dated.Posted Jan 5, 2014
Pros: Spacious condo. Laundry facilities.
Cons: Upgrade the interiors of the condos. Hairdryer in the bathroom. Upgraded kitchen utensils.
Location: Beaches nearby. Cinema complex, outlet mall 20-25min drive away.
The condo was fairly outdated, typical 80's Florida décor, but pleasant enough. Kitchen equipment and utensils need major updating. Water pressure wasn't great, making showering less than ideal. Plenty of hot water though. They need to put the three single beds in one room together and leave the queen bed in it's own bedroom for privacy. There was no hairdryer so remember to bring your own. The grounds and facilities were good and well kept. We really enjoyed the heated pools which were very warm as well as the hot tubs. The weather was warm but cloudy when we were there so we appreciated all the sporting facilities they offered instead of sitting around the pool area. Holmes Beach is the closest beach and is a 15 min drive minimum. Ana Maria Beach is 20 mins away and has a great beachside bar and café. The fish and chips is enough for 2 people and reasonably priced. Lots to do in Bradenton itself and loved having the Publix right next door. The drive to Sarasota on Highway 41 is a long, long 9 miles. Stop and go traffic lights and heavy traffic. It took us around 40mins to go 9 miles. Use Highway 75 if you are going further south than Sarasota. We drove on to Venice which was lovely, but took over an hour from the condo. We have stayed in other condos in Florida and found them to be of the same standard. Unfortunately, Florida doesn't have to try too hard to impress tourists. These condos were perfect for a family needing more space than a hotel room.

Plenty of room for the whole familyPosted Jan 5, 2014
Pros: The condo was spacious. The grounds are beautiful and well-maintained; the pool/clubhouse area is fabulous and very, very clean.
Cons: Better mattresses...provide garbage bags and dish soap...
Location: Publix and a movie theater are only blocks away. Head west on Cortez for Jose's Cuban Cafe and the Seafood Shack: our two favorite meals.
We've stayed here once before, so clearly we like it enough to come back. It is a great value for the money, and in Bradenton, there aren't a lot of other short-term rental options. The check-in/check-out process was simple and pleasant, and the staff was friendly. With our family of five, we really appreciate having space to spread out...especially on this trip, when the weather did not cooperate. However, this is the only vacation property we've ever rented where you have to provide your own garbage bags, dish soap, etc...and that is a little frustrating. And there were a few other little things which made our stay less than excellent: we couldn't figure out how to turn on the light on the screened porch; the TV in the master bedroom was of such poor quality that many channels were totally unwatchable; and that was the least comfortable mattress I have slept on since I lived in a college dorm!

We had 2 cockroaches (palmetto bugs) in our room we had to kill. The air conditioning didn't work. We set it on70 and then again on 72 , but it never got below 76 degrees. It was very uncomfortable to sleep in.

Nice Condo (Unit 4101)Posted Oct 20, 2013
Cons: Quality of the mattress in Master Bedroom.
Nice lake view from balcony. Very clean. Nothing wrong except the mattress in Master bedroom was awful. My wife and I kept rolling towards the center of the bed. Otherwise, it was fine.

Great place to just relaxPosted Sep 11, 2013 on Hotels.com
The facilities and amenities are all there (pools, hot tubs, basketball, tennis, ping pong, pool, lounge, clubhouse) for you to never have to leave if you just want to go and unwind for a while... If you do want to go out and about, there's plenty to do as well... from Anna Maria Island to Siesta Key... parasailing, jetskis, boating and fishing... all within 30 minutes... would definitely recommend and will be going back!
