This home is amazing and was perfect for our large family gathering. We had 16 people ranging in age from 5 to 75. We could walk to the beach, bay and town. Everyone loved their time not just in Bradenton Beach area with fishing, the beautiful beach and shopping, but we especially loved the house. It was our home for the week and we could not have made a better choice. We cooked most of our meals in the large and very well equipped kitchen and bar areas and played family games in the main living room. There was plenty of space for everyone (18 of us!), lots of bathrooms and every bedroom had its own special personality. Lots of room for visiting and lots of privacy at the same time. And then the pool and yard, wow, so much fun, our own private party space...swimming, ping pong, darts, billiards. The pool slide was such a hit, almost everyone took a turn! Some of us spent so much time in the pool we looked like prunes! Very happy wrinkled bodies. Bonus: the elevator, a Godsend for luggage going to the 3rd floor and all those groceries, a pleasant surprise. Highly recommend for anyone wanting to house a group in a beautiful beach home atmosphere. Management was wonderfully accommodating with a late check out so a few folks with afternoon flights could enjoy every moment. Great value! ~ Bonnie F.
