Other Bradenton Properties house description

Bayou Resort - is a 5 bedroom home with 2 full bathrooms. There is a large heated screened in swimming pool and a large outdoor Hot Tub - plus a large Game Room area.

Each bedroom has plenty of closet space, a TV, a stereo system, alarm clock, ceiling fan/light, etc. We also have a crib, high chair, stroller, play pen, and other baby / infant items if needed. The Master Bedroom (King bed) includes a French Door to the pool area, plus a Private Bathroom. Two more Guest bedrooms are located on the left-side of the house - each with Queen Beds. The Office / Den area has a Day bed with a separate trundle bed. The Bunk Bedroom has 2 sets of bunk beds, a Twin over Twin bunk bed and a Twin over Full bunk bed, plus a sectional couch. Note that the bunk beds have full size mattresses and can comfortably handle kids or adults - so 5 to 6 guests can actually stay in this one bedroom.

The home has a designer Kitchen, with granite counter-tops and solid wood cabinets. It is fully outfitted for everything you would need. We provide high-speed Internet access along with wireless access, plus a printer / fax / copier on-site - including free local and long distance phone service (US and Canada). We have a large TV in the Living Room area plus Netflix for downloading movies and television shows. The entire house has beautiful tiled floors, carpet in the bedrooms, and is nicely decorated. The Dining Room can handle up to 8 guests with room for another 4 or more guests at the Kitchen Bar area. The Living Room has seating for 10 to 12 guests.

The Laundry Room has full-size machines, located next to the large Game Room. There is a Billiards / Pool Table, an Air Hockey Table, and electronic darts provided. There are plenty of board games, plus library books, stereo, etc. The heated swimming pool and surrounding area is quite large and overlooks the Bayou. It has plenty of lounge chairs, several patio tables, a large BBQ grill area, a pool frig, tiki torches, and much more. On the right side of the property next to the pool area, is a storage room that has a number of beach chairs an umbrella, fishing equipment, beach and pool toys, boogie boards, skim boards, and so forth. The Hot Tub is located on the opposite end of the pool area, again looking out over the Bayou.

This property is fabulous overlooking the Bayou, which leads out into the Manatee River / Bay area. The Bayou is beautiful and has numerous fish. There are also a variety of ducks, blue herons, cranes, storks, osprey, eagles, and other wild aquatic birds. This vacation home is just 'off island' and you can be on Anna Maria Island beaches in roughly 5 minutes. The home also has a large dock area, access to a large pontoon boat (additional fee), and more ! The Bayou has lots of fish, so you can fish from the dock or take the boat out. There are also great routes we have planned for the boat where you can go shelling, island hopping, sight seeing, etc. Plus you are less than a 5 minute drive to the beaches on Anna Maria Island. There are also two large parks within a 3 minute drive of the home - Robinson Nature Preserve and DeSota State Park. There are trails, hiking, biking, kayaking, beach areas, etc. in both of those areas as well.

The home is close (within a 5 minute drive) to a variety of restaurants, grocery stores, shops, movie theaters, golf courses, bowling alleys, etc. This vacation home offers everything for that well deserved tropical getaway.

The second option is a "discount" for paying in full at time of reservation.

              Note that we do not charge for Security Deposits - we are on the "honor system". There are NO additional fees or deposits for pets. We have a simple reservation form that we email you to confirm your stay and we accept credit cards, debit cards, personal and company checks.
