As soon as you walk through the front door the Bay View House will wow you with its amazing water views and its ideal set-up for entertaining. Our open concept kitchen features a pass through that allows you to see from the front of the house all the way down to the Bay. The attached dining area easily seats 10 at our oversized table, and 6 more at the kitchen bar area. The kitchen is fully outfitted with stainless steel appliances, microwave, filtered water, and Pampered Chef cookware- everything you need to inspire family meals!

Sliding glass doors open onto panoramic views of the Bay, covered patio, and pool area. From there the patio steps lead down to the dock for excellent fishing, birdwatching, and playing with the Manatees- they love to drink fresh water from our hose and will come right up for some crunchy Romaine lettuce!

Awesome place for our family!
Awesome place for our family!
My family and I stayed at this lovely home last year to celebrate my nephew's high school graduation. We all had a wonderful time including my dog! The owner/ home manager was very attentive to our needs. This is truly a great rental home for a family of all ages. The kids really enjoyed the game room and the pool was used every day! The home is also great for anyone needing wheelchair access, as they have wide door frames. The lovely beach is only a short drive away. The home has every cooking utensil needed to make a great meal for family or friends. The neighborhood is a very safe location. I would highly recommended this rental and would return when our travels brought us back to the area. Thank you for a lovely stay!

Relaxing and easy family fun
The owners were helpful and friendly. The home was nice and comfortable. We enjoyed hanging out there, but there was plenty of sightseeing and recreation nearby to partake in. We liked the peaceful morning view of the bay and the show put on by the birds. Everyone of the dozen people staying had a positive reaction to the house and amenities. Our criticisms were minimal. The home is nice enough to make it special, but not so nice as to make one feel like they can't let loose and relax.

So Relaxing We loved this home!!
So Relaxing We loved this home!!
We came with a very large family over Thanksgiving- 6 adults and 7 kids and an infant. The house was large and comfortable and the beds were super cozy for us all. The best part was the heated pool that the kids played in all day. There was also a friendly white bird (heron or egret?) that the kids loved to watch when it would hang out in the yard, and the manatees were ear the dock several times during our stay. We also went to the beach once, which was a super easy drive (literally one right turn to get there, about 10 mins), but it was too cold so the pool at the House was better for the kids. Paul and Tricia were such wonderful hosts and made our time at the Bay View House perfect. They even brought over an extra counter-top convection oven to help with our Thanksgiving side dishes. I would definitely recommend staying here to any travelers who are coming to the gulf coast.

Bay View was the perfect home for our family vacation. We loved being outdoors and the entire property feels so tropical. There were beautiful birds everywhere and they are not kidding about the manatees- we saw them every day and our kids loved it!! The beach is so close and it was wonderful to return to the house and jump right back in the pool. I highly recommend this house!

Year Purchased: 1985
About the owner: Hi, we're the Daltons! We have lived in the Bay View House since 1985 and raised our three beautiful children there. Now we're off on the adventure of retirement and plan to travel around the country in our motor-home. We know you'll love the Bay View House the same way our family has- it's the ideal place to make memories together!
Why the Owner Chose Palma Sola Bay:
We have lived in Bradenton for 37 years and know that it's one of Floridas best kept secrets. Besides our award-winning beaches, Bradenton has the laid-back feel of a quiet beach town with all the modern amenities of a big city. Even better, The Bay View House is uniquely designed for people who love the outdoors- swimming, sunning, bike-riding, and taking long strolls through one of Bradenton's most expensive neighborhoods.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
The outdoor lifestyle is King at The Bay View House. Our expansive covered patio, oversized, deep water swimming pool, two large sun-decks, tropical landscape, hot tub, and outdoor kitchen make enjoying the Florida sunshine as relaxing as the luxury accommodations inside. You are also sure to love the great wildlife that loves our property- from the falcon that keeps watch from our dock light, to the egret that drinks from the swimming pool, to the Manatee families that play in our canal with their young calfs- the Bay View House will wow you with a true Florida experience.
