Originally from the UK, we fell in love with Bradenton Beach on our first visit back in 2001. After visiting several times a year with our two children, we made Florida our permanent home in 2011. In 2017, we purchased Summer Retreat, the perfect location with everything you need for your family vacation. We have also opened Flip Flop Vacation Rentals providing 1st class property management to both Guests and Property Owners alike.

I searched for weeks trying to find the perfect house. The house was loaded with. activities that the entire family could enjoy. We really loved using the bicycles to ride around town and to the beach!! The game room gave us more at night for both old and young. We hope to repeat our stay next year a!!!:)

We stayed here for 7 nights, and I can't even begin to describe how amazing this house is!! It is brand new, and extremely nice. It's even better than the pictures!! The owners were amazing to work with. They were quick to respond to any questions we had, and very accommodating with our check in and check out. Everyone loved the pool, waterslide, waterfall and spa. It's like your own private tropical oasis! The covered lanai with the bar, large table, ping pong, and pool table was so nice to hang out in too. We BBQ'd a couple nights down there and hung out playing games while the kids swam. You can tell they spared no expense when they built this house, everything is top of the line. The bedrooms are all very large with beautiful private bathrooms and walk in closets. 2 even have their own private large balconies. A couple reasons we selected this house over others were the bunk room, the arcade room, the large living space with lots of seating, and of course the pool area. The kitchen and living room are perfect! Two large sectional couches with room for everyone to relax and watch a movie at night. The kitchen is very well stocked with everything you need. The kids and adults both loved the arcade room, such a fun space. The bunk room was great too, it's very large and the kids loved having their own space. The elevator came in very handy for bringing in luggage and groceries. We rented a golf cart for the week to drive around the island, but there is a beautiful beach just a 3 minute walk away. The house was stocked with enough toilet paper, paper towels, dish soap, and dishwasher detergent for the week. It was nice not to have to worry about getting any of that while we were there. The rooftop deck is awesome! My husband liked having coffee up there in the morning and the kids liked going up for ice cream on the roof after dinner. We were planning to rent beach supplies, but the owners have supplied everything you could ever want in the garage. 2 beach umbrellas, 8 beach chairs, a wagon to pull everything, beach and sand toys, pool toys, pool floats,noodles, etc! The outdoor shower is a huge plus too, so nice to be able to come home and wash all the sand off from the beach before going inside. The house was extremely clean, and they have a linen service so no need to wash all the towels and linens before you check out like some other places we have stayed. We can't wait to come back! Thank you Adrian and Cathy!

Our family had such a wonderful time...the only problem we had was that our stay was not long enough and we had to go back home! Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us!

The house and location were perfect. The pool saved the day since the Red Tide spoiled the beaches for us.

We were fortunate enough to stay at this beautiful property for two weeks. The first week we had 10 guests (6 adults and 4 kids) and the second week we had 11 (4 adults and 7 kids). The house had plenty of space for both groups. The beds are comfortable, especially if you prefer a firm mattress, and all rooms were very well appointed. The house even included a crib and bed rail for our younger ones.
The kitchen was reasonably well equipped, though perhaps not "high end" (was perfect for us, and we cooked nearly every night), and there was plenty of living space to accommodate our groups.
The jewel of the house is the pool area, which is spectacular. Our kids loved the slide and the waterfall (and the adults even took a turn on the slide), as well as the pool and pingpong tables.
Finally, the house is in a great location and came well equipped for the beach. It's a quick, 5 minute or less walk to the beach (basically two blocks), and the beaches were not overly crowded the weeks we were there. We have traditionally stayed in Holmes Beach and, while the beaches seemed narrower than further north on the island, we never had a problem finding a spot to set up.
Overall, I highly recommend this property and wish it wasn't already booked solid for Summer 2019!

The house was like your own personal oasis. So many amenities that there was always something to do for everyone. Short walk to the beach which was not overly crowded like some beaches in more touristy areas. The owners have provided pretty much anything you need whether it’s for the beach or the kitchen. The home is beautifully decorated and furnished. Would highly recommend and would definitely stay here again. Didn’t want to leave.

House was great along with pool and upper deck. 2 min walk to the beach. Owners were on top of anything we needed. FYI, they have towels, games, wagon to go to the beach, etc. Just bring suntan lotion.

My husband and I, along with our 3 sons and their families spent a week at this beautiful, wonderful home. The kitchen and living space comfortably fit our family of 12 for meals and visiting. The outdoor spaces were a hit with the kids and adults alike.....and the pool, oh the pool!! Hours of fun were had in the pool! As advertised, the beach was a short and easy walk away. So, thankful for the garage full of beach toys, umbrellas, chairs, as well as the wagon to get all of this equipment there. Bikes were used daily for exploring around town and taking a quick ride to the beach to watch the sunset. This location has everything to offer for the perfect family vacation. We painted sand dollars and enjoyed warm donuts at the shops along Pine Street. Enjoyed a meal at a table in the sand and a boat ride on the hunt for dolphins. It was a great trip, sure wish we were still there!!
