This is the second time we stayed at The Mansion. We noticed the new entrance flooring and the artificial grass around the pool that had been installed since our last visit 5 years ago. Both are great additions to an already great house. We had 19 people during our week there and there was plenty of room in the house. The game room was a hit with the young and old. The pool is where most of our time was spent.. The pool is large enough to accommodate a big family gathering.Carol, the owner, called the day after we settled in to make sure everything was what we expected and needed to make for a great vacation. During the week I had to call Chris, and he was there promptly and fixed the smoke alarm with a new battery and tighten the screws on the toilet paper holder. Very impressed with the quickness of his actions.The kitchen is large and equipped with everything that you could possibly need. The dining room table was able to accommodate the 10-12 people for the nightly card game. All the bedrooms are large and have room for an air mattress. The pool table and table/chairs was another room used a lot. Smaller card games were played while others played pool. The outdoor shower was used after the beach. The hot tub was used a few times as the temperatures for the week were already in the 90's so the pool was used more to cool off in. The outdoor grill is large and works great. Having a frig and bathroom outdoors on the patio is awesome.There are many great tourist attractions near the house. A school nearby for the kids to play on the playground.We had another great week and look forward to renting the house again. We highly recommend this house.Thank you Carol and Chris for another great time in Florida
Thank you Cindy. It was great to have you back again. We are glad that we able to provide you with everything you needed to enjoy your family vacation. We hope to see you again soon!
This is a great house!The best feature is the pool. We were a group of nine who had not seen each other for a while, and we spent most of the time hanging out in and around the pool and the hot tub. The pool was warm, close to the house, well screened and the perfect place to be.The second great feature is that every bedroom has its own bathroom - a huge benefit. And there are additional bathrooms on the main floor, so there is never a line up.Finally, the house is very well equipped, plenty of room for nine and could have fit more, and everything seems to work (which is unusual.) Even the internet is good!The house was such a great place that some days we hardly went anywhere - the pool won out over the beach.Great place to stay in Bradenton, and I thoroughly recommend it.
We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay. You were a great group. We look forward to welcoming you back.
The Waterview was so much more than we expected. The pictures were great, but we are always a little apprehensive on a new place to stay. The house exceeded our expectations. It was very spacious and allowed our children to be together or far apart. The pool and hot tub were clean and well maintained. The enclosed area offered a lot of seating to overlook the beautifully landscaped back yard. We could have stayed at the home for the whole week without going anywhere and my children would have been satisfied. We chose to to take the short trips to many surrounding beaches and preserves. We also took fairly short day trips to Tampa and Orlando. The neighborhood is quiet, friendly and safe. Overall this was a wonderful vacation made better by a beautiful house. Thank you Carol!
Thank you Wendy. I am so glad you enjoyed your stay. We just finished the landscaping in the backyard. Happy to hear you enjoyed it. You are welcome back anytime.
Seascape is a four bedroom, three bath home located in NW Bradenton, FL only ten minutes from AMI's beautiful beaches. It has a well equipped, user friendly kitchen. The game room has a couch with a pull out bed for extra guests.A house is a building. A home is a feeling. Seascape is a feeling. Carol, the owner, has created a feeling. She has decorated the vacation get away with some unique and excellent decor. Chris, the property manager, does an excellent job keeping the property in great shape. It is located minutes from De Soto National Memorial and Robertson Preserve. It is a few more minutes to GT Bray County Park and golf courses. The highlight of Seascape is the screened in pool. It also has a hot tub, outdoor grill and multiple outdoor tables for dining. We would wholeheartedly recommend this home to all. We are signed up for next year!
Thank you. We are glad that you appreciated the decor and all the home and area has to offer. We look forward to seeing you again next year.
Hard to find a place to fit our entire family, 15 and counting, but this place was perfect! Had every bedroom filled, and still had plenty of space to get away to some peace and quiet! Loved everything about house, pool was great, game room and pool were used every day and then some, and still had room for card games, board games, or just sitting and reading! Wish it had a yard, but there is nice big parks just down the block, so that was nice too! Oh and I think the best part is its SUPER inexpensive compared to other places where people want more money with less rooms, less space, and no pool! SWEEEEEEEEEEET! Loved it and we hope to be back again! Thanks Carol!
We are so glad that you enjoyed are home and all its amenities. We try to provide all the amenities that a guest would want for an enjoyable vacation at a reasonable price.
It is too bad that there was not room for a volleyball court but as you discovered there are some fantastic parks close to the home.
You were great guests - we look forward to having you stay with us again.
Our large family came together for a great vacation getaway at the Lakehouse. We feel in love with the house and it easily accommodated our family. The pool area is to die for. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the back yard area. We had the fenced in kitchen area, pool, hot tub and fishing in the lake. There is something for everyone at this facility. You are extremely close to grocery stores, restaurants, pharmacies, etc. and yet only a few miles from the beach and preserves. Carole and Chris were so great and answered any questions immediately. The house is in great condition. We can't say enough great things. House has pool table, foosball table and air hockey. It is also supplied with books, games and puzzles. If you can't find anything to do at this spot, it's sad. Our family had a fantastic trip and look forward to returning.
Thank you for your very kind words. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay. We try to provide everything you need for a carefree vacation. You were great guests. We look forward to welcoming you back.
We thoroughly enjoyed your lakehouse. Thank you so much for making it available to us as a return guest. Your place had everything we needed. The bedrooms worked out perfectly for our group. The screened in pool, hot tub and lanai were awesome. Although the kids and grandkids didn't catch any fish, they enjoyed fishing every morning and evening. I enjoyed watching the birds and turtles, it was so peaceful. We went to Manatee Beach, Coquina Beach, Bradenton Beach and Long Boat Key beach, and loved them all. We even saw a beautiful sunset and full moon at the beach on the same night! What more could you ask for? We also took the dolphin and manatee sightseeing tour. Although we packed a lot into one week, we were sorry we had to leave. The week went much too quick. This is definitely on our list for a return visit.
Thank you. We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay. You were a great group. We look forward to welcoming you back.
Our Best family vacation!
Thank you for your kind words. We do try to provide all the amenities to provide you with a carefree vacation. We look forward to welcoming you back at anytime.
Great Vacation Home!My family and I had a great time1 We were very pleased with the home. I have done nothing but brag about the house. My friends that got to come and have dinner with us could not believe that the house actually looked like the pictures on the web. I am going to share the link with my friends and fellow coworkers.My family and look forward to another opportunity to be able to contact you again for next year!! We greatly enjoyed our Stay.Maria T.
Thank you for your kind words. We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay. You were great guests - you went above and beyond in the fantastic way you left The Waterview. You are welcome back anytime.
Look no further~we have already done the leg work!This is our fourth year vacationing in the Mansion. We use the home away, vrbo sites to look for properties that suit our family of 12. Sincerely, there is not another property in this area or even close surrounding areas, that come near to the quality of home or the price. (Other than Carol’s other properties in Bradenton!) Carol is very fair and it is so easy to know that she aims to help your vacation be like home. There are tons of dishes, pans, plates, silverware~all you need for preparing meals, as if you were in your own kitchen. Plenty of quality towels, bedding, beach towels, blankets. A working computer, with wifi, a printer with ink and even paper! The pool was literally so warm it was like walking into a bathtub. A sparkling clean hot tub. All types of restaurants, Wal-mart, and similar types of stores are within minutes of driving. Even the number 1 rated beach in America (Siesta Key) is a worth it, one hour drive! There is a Saturday local farmers market that we have used and are thrilled it is available! Our family calls this our ‘vacation home,’ as it feels like it is our home away from home. A few minor things were mentioned, SOLELY to make Carol aware, as she would have never known unless she literally lived in the home, and she was ready on the spot within minutes to quickly and perfectly help. We all want to travel to other locations in the U.S., but she has spoiled us so much with her incredible home, that we find it difficult to pull away from Bradenton! Thank you, Carol, for such a welcoming home! We know we have found a great property when your number is entered in our cell phones! 🙂 We will be in touch for future vacations! Kathy
Thank you. We look forward to welcoming you back.
