Why Wendy chose Bay Colony
My grandparents built this home and now we are the third generation to lovingly take care of it and enjoy it. We have so many wonderful memories of the good times we had here. We wanted to share this with others.
What makes this House unique
Some of my best memories are of my dad taking all of us out on his boat from the dock on the property. Fishing with my parents and grandparents and of course sunbathing on the dock. My mother and I loved the beach so we would go to the many wonderful sugar sand beaches here. I enjoyed waking up early with my dad and sitting on the screened in porch with our coffee looking out at the water and hearing the birds sing! We went to the amusement parks, museums and there was always something going on locally that we went to that was fun. My husband loves going kiteboarding , flyboarding, jetskiing and paddle boarding.

Very lovely and decor was excellent. Nice area and beautiful view of water. All you need to have a wonderful time. Close to everything.
Excellent This year as last, hope we can rebook for 2019.
We had a wonderful time. Wendy's house is amazing. With it's great window views of the water and watching Pelicans and Gull flying around and Egrets and Ibis walking in the yard. Great fishing from the dock, I caught Snook, Trout, Ladyfish and Spanish Mackerel to name a few. Palmetto Is a fairly quiet town, but as you cross over to Bradenton, you have all you need for your stay. Good shopping, dining, beaches etc etc. We will be back again next March, Thanks again Ron & Gerry Balkit.
Nice house no problems liked location extremely clean. Greatly appreciate you help with shower
We found it streamly clean and well cared for really appreciate your cooperation in the drain in the shower just overall a wonderful time
Beautiful home, well kept property and friendly neighbours!
We spent February 2016 at this property. The home and furnishings were excellent and had all the latest appliances too, just as described in the listing. Wendy, the owner was very nice to deal with and strove to please with every detail. She even provided a mid-month maid service for us. If you are looking for a quiet neighbourhood home that is close to beaches and attractions, this is it. Be sure to try the Sea Hut restaurant and Kostos restaurants, which are both close by and very reasonable.
Great place to stay !!
Perfect clean home ! In quite neighborhood , close to highways , Publix just few minutes away , 25 min to Anna Maria beaches , far away from traffic and close enough to go anywhere ! The owner did great job on remodeling the whole house, we had a great time there! Highly recommended! Jack and Ava
