Note that all of the bedrooms have plenty of closet space, tvs , ceiling fans, etc. Adjacent to the master bedroom is private sitting room. On the other side of the house, there are two bedrooms also located on the 2nd floor with its own stairway access. One is a king bedroom that has a toddler bed, the other is a large bunk bedroom with 3 bunk bed set-ups. There is a twin over twin bunk bed, one twin over full bunk bed and a day bed with a separate trundle bed - so this room can sleep up to 7 kids, if needed. There is a shared bathroom between these two bedrooms.
On the 1st floor, is another king bedroom perfect for grand parents or those who cannot manage the stairs. The 5th bedroom also on the 1st floor, has a queen bed with a crib. The two downstairs bedrooms also share another large bathroom between them, but is accessible to the game room area. The 4th bathroom is located at the rear of the house and doubles as the pool / patio bathroom, as it has two doors, one from the living room area and the rear patio area.
The home has a beautiful kitchen that is fully outfitted for everything you would need. Most bedrooms have its own tv and there is a large tv in the living room.. The entire house has beautiful tiled floors, with the several rooms having wood finished ceilings. The dining room can handle up to 12 guests with two added bar / eating areas in the kitchen. The living room area has seating for 10 to 12 guests. The laundry room has full-size washer & dryer located off the kitchen.
The billiards / pool table room is directly off the main entrance to the house. There are also plenty of board games, variety of books, and a stereo. We have a foosball table and a game table. The outside heated swimming pool and covered patio area is quite large and overlooks the bay. It has plenty of lounge chairs, several patio tables, a large bbq grill area, and a pool refrigerator. We also have a number of beach chairs, beach umbrella, beach and pool toys. We just added an outdoor PingPong table and an outdoor TV.
This property is fabulous and has a large back yard area overlooking the bay. The water is beautiful and has numerous fish, we occasionally have manatees and dolphins right by the dock. There are also a variety of ducks, blue herons, osprey, eagles, and other wild aquatic birds. The dock is great to watch sunsets from, go fishing, or simply enjoy eating out on the picnic table located right on the dock. This vacation home is just 'off island' and you can be on Anna maria island beaches in roughly 10 minutes - depending on traffic. The property 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.

Great time in Sunny Bradenton
After 2 years we returned to the area of Bradenton and again to this lovely house.
Bradenton has a lot to offer, we love the fact this house has a Ponton boat and we took it out a lot. Really added value to your holiday. But staying at "home" is great as well. the house is good organized well equipped has a super nice garden with pool. Marc and Gail are always there when you need them, and very relaxed in letting us be and feel at home in their home. we did not see them on arrival nor on departure. great trust. We had a wonderful fam.Holiday.
Fam.Berendonk the Netherlands
a really great time was had by all.
We had a family of two sets of grandparents, two sets adult children and spouses and seven grandchildren.The house was was warm and inviting, equipped with everything we needed. The grandchildren all shared a room which was exciting for them. The heated pool was a real bonus that kept our seven grandchildren entertained for hours. It was easy access to great Gulf Beaches. We had a wonderful family time in this lovely well situated house. It far exceeded our expectations. The owners were readily available and very helpful.
Fun for a large family
Our stay at the property was fantastic! We had a large group of 12 that included grandparents, adults and kids. We had plenty of room for everyone as the house comfortably slept us all. The amenities are fantastic and include a beautiful pool, hot tub, and dock. I would definitely recommend renting the pontoon boat. The area is great for boating. We went to a huge sandbar at Jewfish Key and saw more dolphins than I can count! Also, the owners Gail and Mark were very friendly. I highly recommend this rental.
Awesome Vacation Home!!
The house is huge and we had 12 people (7 adults and 5 kids) in our party. The back yard and view was beautiful and the pool was great! The outdoor patio is very comfortable with plenty of seating, a TV and fridge. The kitchen is stocked with all cooking essentials, appliances were all in very good condition and the kitchen is very roomy, seating for at least 13-14. Gail and Mark were great! We highly recommend this property and would have no hesitation renting here again.
The house is huge and the back yard absolutely beautiful. Everyone enjoyed the pool. Unfortunately the weather wasn't the greatest, but that's when the foosball, pingpong, and pool table came in handy. The kitchen had everything you needed for cooking. I prefer the outdoors, and even though the evenings were a little cool, I found myself sitting outside in the covered patio. The hot tub was also enjoyed by most of our party, but I never did venture out there in the evening (to dark). If travelling in a large group this house is ideal.
You cant blame us for the weather. Sounds like you loved it. Deserves 5 stars.
Beautiful Home with lots of amenities!
We really enjoyed our stay! The home has a lot to offer to keep everyone busy and having fun. It's right on the water so it's fun to sit on the dock and watch the fish jumping and the scenery. (can't swim there however). It has a pool, hot tub, ping pong table, TV and sitting area outside which was great. Indoors there is a pool table, foosball, and TV room with large comfy sectional. The owners Gail and Mark were easy to contact and communicate with. Everything was clean and comfy. We hope to return!
We hope you return too. It was a pleasure having you.
There is a lot to see and do in our area - from the beaches to boating, from entertainment to shopping, from amusement parks to fishing - - we have everything !
