Property description

Calendar & Rates: flabv com/calendar
The Bay View House is a beautiful waterfront home with stunning views of a small Bay / Inlet and direct access to the intra-coastal waterway. Come feed the Manatees that often swim in front of our dock! This ideal vacation destination features a large heated pool, Jacuzzi, outdoor grill area w/ fridge, spacious covered patio, sun deck, deep water boat dock, and a fully-stocked game/activity room including billiards table, ping pong, foos ball, fishing gear, boogie boards, and bicycles for the whole family.

Bay View has 4 large bedrooms / 3 full baths and sleeps 12-14. The Master Bedroom has a King sized bed and gorgeous views over the pool area down to the Bay. The Kids room has 2 Twin-over-Full Bunk Beds, a toddler bed, a large play area, and direct access to the game room. The Family Room has a Queen bed, fixed-side crib, and extra baby gear including a pack and play, high chair, and stroller. The Guest Master has a Queen sized bed, private bathroom, and French Doors leading to the outdoor kitchen / views of the Bay. All of the bedrooms have cable TV, alarm clock / radio, plenty of dresser and closet space, two sets of luxury linens, and lots of extra pillows and blankets.

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! Clean-up is a breeze with dishwasher, garbage disposal, and sink overlooking the Bay. The living room has a large sectional couch with an additional Queen sized sleeper sofa and recliners for the whole family to gather. 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!

The Bay View House has central AC and heat, there are numerous ceiling fans throughout, and all utilities are included. We also have an office area with a desktop PC, printer/fax/copier machine, high-speed Internet access, wireless access, a telephone system with free local service, and we have Netflix for downloading movies and TV shows. There is a large TV in the Living that includes a DVR for recording your favorite shows - sporting events - etc. during your stay. The Bay View House is also a pet-friendly rental with a fully fenced-in back yard.

When you’re ready to venture out from the lush tropical landscaping on the property, the Bay View House is extremely centrally located. The beautiful Anna Maria beaches are just 7 minutes away, Busch Gardens is less than one hour, and Disney / Universal Studios are less than two hours. Within a 10 minute drive you’ll find major grocery stores, liquor store, gourmet market, restaurants, ice cream parlor, bowling alley, put put golf, movie theater, and amazing local attractions like the Palma Sola Botanical Gardens, Robinson Preserve Nature Park, and the DeSoto National Memorial Park. 30 minutes to the South, our sister-cities of Sarasota and Longboat Key showcase a vibrant arts and culture scene including world-class dining, luxury shopping, the Ringling Museum of Art, and concerts/live events at the Asolo and Van Wezel Performing Arts Halls.

We are so excited to share the Bay View House with you and know it will be the perfect home-base for your Florida visit. We know that your family vacation experience is priceless, and we look forward to making your stay incredible!!

Owner info

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 Bradenton, FL, USA:
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.
