Additional Location Information
Sabal Harbour is located just 5 minutes drive from Interstate 75 and 20 minutes from the finest beaches in Florida. Little Palms Villa is close to numerous restaurants, shopping outlets, cinemas and activities.
Sarasota can be reached in 25 minutes, the Barrier Islands of Siesta Key, Anna Maria Island and Longboat Key are even closer and have fantastic beaches, eating establishments and interesting shopping venues. They are likened to Key West by some and the sunsets are unforgettable.
Siesta Key is our favourite and has a lively town full of beach type bars, restaurants and shops and beaches with sugar white sand and safe bathing in the calm waters of the Gulf of Mexico.
Ellenton Mall is ten minutes from the villa, one of the largest in Florida and is set around a street system instead of the usual enclosed type.
Busch Gardens is a 45 minute drive from the home and the Orlando attractions are 1.5 hours away. Many guests have enjoyed days out a Disney from our villa.

What Past Guests Are Saying
Everything you need to feel like at home!
We stayed for three weeks in Pauline and Howard's home.Very clean and cozy, has everything you need for a perfect stay.We reserved our stay with them directly and had therefore a more personal contact rather then dealing with property management.Location is about 20 minutes from downtown Sarasota. 5 minutes away from the house there is everything you need...from grocery store to restaurants and gas station.Key code and garage opener has to be picked up and dropped off at property management's office (15 minutes away).They are not the friendliest people we encountered on this vacation...but then it is not Pauline and Howard's fault.

Thank you for your review and the lovely email you sent to us. We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay at the villa. We are though saddened that you did not find your dealings with our management company were not perfect as we have had many years of positive comments about them, it may be a new staff member at fault. I will pass on your comments to them.
The visit to the offices to check in saves the need for us to take a security deposit from guests in advance of a stay, but I do understand your point.
We are glad that everything else was to your liking and really enjoyed dealing with you.
Our best to you all,
Pauline and Howard.
great stay at a beautiful and convient located villa with all ne
Truth to be told, it was very hard to decide a vacation home searching through the hundreds of possibilities. If you are experiencing the same and find this one - stop searching anymore! You found the perfect location.
Contact with the owners was estabilshed immediately and we had a very pleasant talk on the phone getting all the details of the villa and having all our questions immediately answered.
The booking arrangements itself were easy enough. All the necessary information for the stay was provided up front - once in the villa even more information was available.
The villa itself is conveniently located to airport, shopping of all sorts and the beaches. The nice and safe neighborhood made us feel at home immediately - the same was true for the villa itself.
It is nicely maintained and furnished with everything needed for a perfect vacation (and much more).
Summary: we had a great stay at a beautiful and convient located villa with all necessary luxuries for such a vacation.

Thank you so much Jan for your review. You were perfect guests and dealing with you was a pleasure from start to finish.
As we know you are a regular traveler to the US staying in many homes, your comments are especially pleasing regarding our villa and location.
Our best wishes to you and your family.
Howard and Pauline.
Little Palms Villa is Your Home away from Home!
It was such a pleasure to stay in Little Palms Villa. The process of booking your villa was very smooth. The home was immaculate when we checked in. We loved using a combination lock rather than a "key" to enter the villa. The kitchen was well stocked with every imaginable gadget. The Bose surround sound added a nice touch when we were "chilling" in front of the TV. It pains me to say this, but the bed in the master bedroom is more comfortable than our own! Sabal Harbor was perfect for our vacation, only 15 minutes from the beach, shopping and great restaurants. Thank you for making our vacation a great one. Debi from atlanta.

It is always good to hear from our guests, and especially so when they have enjoyed themselves at our home, so thank you for your kind review. Pauline and I try to do everything we can to add amenities and comforts to the villa for our staying guests and the 'Bose' sound system is one that we really enjoy ourselves.
Thank you for being great guests.

If you want style and comfort then come and stay in this lovely
We booked your villa for our honeymoon and it was our first time in Florida so did not know what to expect.
You gave us great information to get us there safely and we were not disappointed. We arrived at the villa to find a very comfortable, attractive and spacious home waiting for us. The living room looks onto the outside pool area with table, chairs and loungers which are perfect for looking at the lake ahead. We spent hours watching the lake and its visitors, usually Egrets and Herons searching for fish and Turtles with their young.
Every convenience has been thought of, from the well appointed kitchen to the useful information folder and brochures. The nearby shops and supermarkets were very good and the whole area made us want to come back and explore further.
We will certainly be booking Little Palms Villa for another holiday as soon as possible.
Response from Howard Walduck - 06/12/2012
Thank you for your review Helen.
We are so glad that you enjoyed your time in Florida and that you found our home to your liking.
We agree, it is very entertaining watching the wildlife in and around the lake, but we have not seen the Turtles ourselves yet.
You will be most welcome to stay at the villa again later this year as you
have planned, October is a great time of year on the Gulf Coast.
Our regards to you both.
Howard and Pauline.
Fabulous villa and fantastic holiday
Hi Howard and Pauline,
Just wanted to say thanks for letting us stay in your lovely Florida home. As returning guests we were pleased to see that the villa was even better than we remembered. It is very spacious and comfortable, spotlessly clean and well maintained, and has everything you could possibly need for a relaxing stay. The tv and bose sound system are great and we particularly loved the pool and outside dining area. It's a lovely place to sit with a coffee in the morning, or a glass (or two) of wine in the evening - just watching the wildlife around the lake.
We thought the villa was an ideal base from which to explore the Gulf Coast beaches and surrounding areas. We particularly loved anna Maria Island. Watching dolphins from the beach at Bean Point will be one of my happiest memories and we can recommend 'Feeling Swell' for the best burger on the island.
We had a fantastic holiday. We can't wait to go back and we will definitely choose Little Palms Villa for our next visit.

Thank you so much for taking the trouble to let us know that you enjoyed your second stay at Little Palms Villa.
You must know the area very well by now as I remember that you and Steve like to visit a wide range of places when you stay. It looks as if you were very impressed with your exploration of Anna Maria Island.
We will be visiting ourselves again in November to make further upgrades to the villa and hope you will find these to your liking when you stay next time. Our best to you both.
Howard and Pauline.
