About Us And Our Florida Vacation Home

My wife (Jo) and I (Selwyn) live in Columbus, Ohio and we plan to retire in sunny Florida in a few years. Until such time, we will share our Waterlefe home with you to enjoy the resort style living we love.

Front Enterance Into Community

Why the Owners Chose Bradenton, FL, USA:


This property is located in a 24x7 guarded, gated community. Our house is very private on a quiet cul-de-sac. It has it's own private lanai and swimming pool. It's all about location, location, location!

The Unique Benefits at this House:


Waterlefe is an upscale community that provides resort style living. It has an 18 hole golf course on the property, along with the River Club dining restaurant and fitness center for residents and authorized guests. In addition, this property has it's own private marina with direct access to the Gulf of Mexico via the Manatee River.

Florida Snowbirds Nest Location

Our home is located in Bradenton, FL.  Sarasota (15 mins away) is to the south; Tampa (30 mins away) is the the north - both cities have easy access from our home via I-75.  When my wife and I venture out and explore, we typically start at Sarasota because of the short drive.  Tampa is also very nice, but has the feel of a large city.

You Won't Be Bored On Your Vacation...

If you're a beach person, the amazing and expansive white sand beaches of Anna Maria Island, Siesta Key, and Longboat Key are not far away.  What a great way to spend the day on or near the ocean!

For the laid-back, Bradenton Beach is a small town known for its fishing piers, sugar-sand beaches and a quaint strip of shops, restaurants and other family-owned businesses.  The pace noticeably slows on this Gulf retreat.  It's located on Anna Maria Island off the Gulf Coast and a brief drive from our house.

If you love shopping, Ellenton Premium Outlets mall is 15 minutes from our home and boasts 130 designer stores.  Also a 15 minute drive is The Mall at University Town Center which is a world-class fashion and dining destination featuring approximately 880,000 square feet of retail space with Saks Fifth Avenue, Macy's, Dillards and more than 100 stores and restaurants.  The Mall at University Town Center is our favorite.

For the adventurous, our home is located about a little over an hour and a half drive to all of the Walt Disney World properties in Orlando.  It's well worth the drive if you want to spend the day being a kid again :-)  A closer alternative is Busch Gardens which a shorter drive and located in Tampa.

For the sports enthusiasts, our home is located near the Bradenton Orioles Spring Training facility in Sarasota, Pittsburgh Pirates Spring Training in Bradenton, Boston Red Sox and Minnesota Twins Spring Training in Fort Myers, New York Yankees Spring Training in Tampa, Tampa Bay Rays Spring Training in nearby Port Charlotte and the Philadelphia Phillies are in Clearwater.

These are just a few examples...you won't be bored on your vacation!
