I stayed here during the holidays with my wife and three young children as part of a larger family reunion where each family unit had their own villa, and it worked out very well. Our villa was nicely appointed and in good condition. The kitchen was well equipped and I appreciated the pool noodles and kickboards for the children. It is a quiet place and the people we ran into were friendly. The pool was warm (thank goodness!) and the hot tub was nice and hot. The grill area was nice, although the club house could have had some nicer seating areas inside. While there was always plenty of room on the pool deck, tennis courts were sometimes full. The location is near plenty of restaurants and shopping areas. Siesta Key is a short easy drive. It was great for my kids to have their own bedroom, and I definitely would consider staying here again. The only significant downside was the lack of a fitness center which would have been nice but certainly not a deal breaker.

My husband and I have been going to Sarasota for the last 6 years. Every year we would stay at the Best Western. Until we found out about Timberwoods. It was much cheaper that the BW and we had a whole villa to ourselves. All the amenities are at Timberwoods except for the feeling that you were not in a teenie tiny hotel room. It felt like we had our own little piece of paradise for a fraction of the cost. We stayed at Timberwoods in July 2002 and we immediately booked our next years vacation for April before we left. I highly recommend staying at Timberwoods. From the beautiful surroundings to the unbelievably kept villa's, you will not be disappointed.

My family and I have been visiting the Sarasota area for the last several years. We took a chance on an internet deal for the Timberland Woods Villas in May of 2003. We found the accomodations to be very well maintained,spacious with beautiful -peaceful grounds surrounding the villas. We enjoyed the spot so much we purchased one of the villas for our retirement! Loved it!!!!!

I am writing this review in the middle of a two month stay at the complex. We leave the end of March 2009.

TImberwoods Villas is a complex of 114 individually owned vacation villas. One books a reservation either through the office or privately, either through a real estate office or from the owner directly, depending upon arrangements the owner has made. Because the villas are individually owned, decor and amenities vary. Each villa is 1344 square feet and has two bedrooms, two baths, full kitchens and a lanai. The complex has a club house with a heated pool and hot tub. There are weekly get togethers with guests arranged by the complex, as well as events such as Valentine's Day parties, St Patrick Days Parties, etc.

The setting of Timberwoods is superb. It is wooded and set back from the road. The outside condition of the villas is excellent, as one would expect from properties that are individually owned.

The clientele is mostly retired people, with the usual visits from friends and family during school breaks, etc. That said, there are a number of villas (such as our neighbours) that are occupied by owners on a permanent basis - it is their home!

I strongly recommend Timberwoods. This is our first year here, but it will not be our last.

After looking around for a decent priced place we found out about Timberwoods from the local tourist information office. After looking at the place we thought 'looks expensive'. We rang the office when it opened and was surprised to find out how cheap it was as it was our first stay there. The villas themselves are everything you could ask for. They are very spacious and full of everything you could require for a self catering holiday. There was only the 2 of us and we had ample room and even if you went with 2 or 3 children you would still have lots of room. All of the villas are 2 bedroomed and 2 bathrooms with a washing machine,tumble drier and dishwasher.
The staff were brilliant and couldnt have been more accomodating to us. Thank you Diane!!!
The pool was clean and warm and the hottub was lovely. There are also tennis courts, a putting green, table tennis and a small basketball hoop. In the clubhouse there is a small library where you can swap books and also games, pool table and puzzles in case the weather isnt brilliant but the mall next door is great for bad weather times and shopping!!!
We had a fantastic time at Timberwoods and would definately recommend it to anyone looking for a nice quiet place to stay.
Saying that there was not a lot of children there it seemed more like a retirement complex. But on weekends there where a few more children there probably visiting grandparents.
If you would like any more information do not hesitate to email me.

We were initially pleased with the villa. It was spacious, very clean and nice quality furnishings. The beds were of good quality but the mattresses were very very soft. This may suit some - but not us. In order to sleep well we used both bedrooms.

On day two of our stay we awakened to barking dogs from the villa directly across from us. We thought nothing much of it but the same thing happened day three and during the day, as well as every day and night we were there. When we stepped out to the screened in lanai the dogs went berserk. We called over to the villa to find the owner was not home and the dogs were left to bark with no restraint. This particular villa was an owner occupied villa and this lady did not care at all who enjoyed their stay.

We went to the pool one day of our stay only and were made to feel very uncomfortable by a lady who told us this was not a vacation resort. Why she let us know this was never disclosed. We had no children, and are mature adults, not young party people. We remained at the pool for 15 minutes only.

The barking dogs ensure we will never return. Vacation rentals do not permit pets but you can be sure that you may not be in for a quiet relaxing stay if you are unfortunate enough to be positioned next to an owner occupied villa.

Good morning! Thank you for your review and I am sorry to hear about the inconvenience that you endured during your stay. Please note that the property in which you stayed is called Village des Pins, each villa is privately owned and out of 112 units there, Timberwoods Vacation Villas (rental management business name) manages 30 of them. Since I am not able to identify you, I do not know if you rented through us (Timberwoods) or through a private owner. I say this because if you rented through us (Timberwoods), your villa had 2 telephones with speed dial buttons that connect you with the Registration Office and to an after-hours maintenance emergency assistance line. This is pointed out to every guest at the time of check-in at the Registration Office because we want for our guests to call us if there are any problems during their stay. We have not had any reports of barking dogs. If you had called the office, I would've personally reported this to the condominium association's board and would make sure that the problem was taken care of. Please contact me at Teresa@timberwoods.com I would like to obtain your name so that I can look up your reservation and find out if you rented through Timberwoods, it is important to me that our guests enjoy their stay and depart with full satisfaction. I look forward to hearing from you. Best Regards, Teresa Blanco General Manager

This is a really nice place with wonderful amenities. However, the adults in our group are ages 34-50 and we have two very well behaved children. We have been reminded more than once that the rules at the pool are quite specific, strict, and allow very litlle fun to be had. The residents for the most part are not welcoming toward us and it honestly shows in their faces as we enter the pool area. We are not wild, crazy, over-the-top, or loud. We have found that this resort is well-suited for the older community. If you are looking for nothing but quiet,it is lovely. The villas are quite spacious and well equipped. The location is great and only a short distance from beautiful Siesta Key Beach. I would recommend a different resort if you are age 65 or younger. Definitely I will choose more wisely when planning a week away with our friends and our kids.

We stayed at Timberland Villas in Sarasota while our daughter attended a class at the hosptial in this area. We brought our 5 month old grandson and thought we would have a great time. The place we rented was very nice but another owner let us know when we got to the pool (late one evening) that our grandson could not get in the pool! We had not intended for him to go swimming but the attitude of this individual with the manager present made it impossible to enjoy our stay! Would NEVER go back~

Dear Guest, Thank you very much for submitting your review to Trip Advisor about Timberwoods Vacation Villas. I am sorry to hear that your stay with us was disappointing. Timberwoods rents villas and our main focus is to make sure your villa is in great shape and exceeds your cleaning standards. The situation at the pool that you mentioned is very unfortunate and I can assure you that the person you spoke to was not Timberwoods Vacation Villas' Manager or even an employee. I do not go to the pool at night time and we have always been friendly with children. Personally, I am a grandmother of a 8-month old baby girl and I would never behave in such way with any guests. Every Summer we have little league teams stay with us and they occupy all of the villas we rent. There have been cases where owners who live or are on vacation in their villas (which we do not manage) have acted as higher authority without merit. We do not possess the power to rule how other adults behave at the Pool area, unfortunately, their actions affect us and we have asked for them to halt the hostility. Once again I apologize for the inconvenience this caused and, even though you say you are not interested in coming back, we hope to have the privilege to have you as our guests once again. Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions. Thank you. Best Regards, Teresa Blanco General Manager

What you aren't told is there are renters and than there are owners. These people complain at the slightest infraction at what aren't the establishments rules but their rules. For example, although there is a pool designated only for their privacy none of them go there they prefer the larger pool by the club house open to everyone. Where if its possible for a bunch of doddering old farts to do they try to run rough shod over the renters. As long as you don't have kids, make noise have a nice vehicle or attempt to have any fun on your vacation than this is the place for you. I would not mention this if these kinds of things only happened once or even a couple of times. However, this was a daily occurrence and happened several times a day for a solid week!! On their defense I will say that the office did not receive one complaint about our group. It was just the constant harrasement by these old farts that made this a highly stressful stay. I must thank them though because they were such butt holes that when we did leave for an activity we enjoyed ourselves so much more cause these old poops were nowhere to be found! But it was a somber ride back to Timberwoods because we all knew what we were headed to.

Dear Timberwoods Guest, Village des Pins has one private pool that is located beside the clubhouse and shared by 112 Villas that are located on and around Timberwood Circle. The other pool you are referring to is the private pool for the Pinetree townhouses which is a separate property. Village des Pins has a mix of resident owners, (owners that live at their property year round) and owners who rent their villas either privately or through companies like Timberwoods. Therefore, there is quite a mix of people visiting Village des Pins. During spring break, Easter break and summer break, there is heavier flow of younger people, bringing much more activity at the pool and surrounding areas (tennis courts, basketball court, grills, etc.) When there are many people sharing one pool, it is most important for everybody to be kind, courteous and respectful. If at any time during your stay this was not the case and there was an issue or uneasiness, we would have appreciated it if you would have brought the problem to our attention immediately. We would then have done our best to resolve the issue to the satisfaction of everybody. Timberwoods Vacation Villas is a well-managed and respected company. Most of our guests have been returning to the property year-after-year for over 30 years. We pride ourselves for the meticulously kept Villas and we do our very best to ensure that our guests have memorable and happy vacations at Timberwoods. We apologize for your unfortunate situation. We hope that you will visit us again and in the future, please do not hesitate to contact the Office for any concerns With Warm Regards, Teresa Blanco General Manager

I have used timberwoods 3 years now and always find the units in good condition and the location is great near siesta key, shopping and golf. The staff is excellent and they take care of any issues that may arise. This is a gem in Sarasota and I can't recommend it more highly.
