About Ben

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!

Ben purchased this house in 1985

Why Ben chose Florida South West

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.

What makes this house unique

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.

It was PERFECT

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here with my familie, and my sisters family. we came all the way from Norway.

The property is just as incredible as it looks on the photos.

The owner is really helpfull, and all in all ajust a great person!

We were not so lucky with the weather when we stayed here, but fortunately the house is just as cosy, when it is raining. We were allways waiting for the manatees to show up, and finally they did on the very last day.

Our kids really enjoyed the house, and there was no problem fitting 9 people around the table.

We will definitly come back here again.... hopefully the weather will be better.

Thank you so much for letting us stay here.

Just kick back and relax

  • 5 of 5

If you want to just kick back and relax, this is the place for you. Sit on the lanai and watch the Manatee in the bayou. Walk out on the patio and take a dip in the pool or relax in the spa. Beautiful, spacious, well maintained home with every amenity you could want. Great place for a couple, a large family or anything in between Located in a nice quiet neighborhood. DeSoto National Monument (a great place to walk) is a mile away. Also, check out the Robinson Nature Preserve with several miles of hiking trails and the Palma Sola Botanical Park. Both are a few miles away and are highly recommended for anyone who enjoys walking. Anna Maria Island is a quick 15 minute drive away. There you will find great beaches and fantastic restaurants. Bradenton area is one of the best kept secrets on the Gulf. Plenty to see and do, literally something for everyone. Great affordable seafood restaurants. Beautiful beaches with lots of public access. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone who asks. I'm already making plans to go back next year.

One caveat: Pool is not fenced so I so would not recommend to families with young children.

Awesome place for our family!

  • 5 of 5

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!

So Relaxing We loved this home!!

  • 5 of 5

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.

LOVED IT!

  • 5 of 5

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!
