About Judith Starr
We are D.C.-area professionals who have family in Palmetto, who first drew us to the area. We fell in love with the area when visiting, while relishing the opportunity to spend more time with family members. We love the friendliness of the people here as well as its natural beauty. Our jobs keep us in the DC area most of the year, so we come down when we can and share our dream house the rest of the time.
Judith Starr purchased this House in 2014
Why Judith Starr chose Palmetto
Location, location, location. The location on the water couldn't be better and geographically has the best of both worlds -- a lovely quiet canal street that is also centrally located near everything you need. The house itself is full of light, spacious and comfortable. The location is perfect for exploring the Gulf Coast - convenient to Tampa, St. Petersburg, Orlando, Bradenton and Sarasota. You can create the Florida vacation of your dreams -- it is all nearby!
What makes this House unique
It is a great place to hang out in, whether you like to swim, sun, take saunas, bird watch, boat, kayak, paddle board or barbecue, and is also a great jumping off point for trips to parks and beaches. There are also loads of cultural activities a few minutes away in Bradenton (Riverwalk, museum, performing arts center), and Sarasota is a reasonable trip as well. Palmetto has a small town flavor, with shopping and parks minutes from the house. The outlet mall is 7 miles away where incredible bargains can be found. We have taken great care to furnish and stock this house with everything to make you go 'wow' and like us, you'll never want to leave!

Wonderful house, good location, many amenities
We stayed at Manatee Haven the 3rd week of July. We arrived on a Saturday. The house was clean and the a/c was on. The beds were comfortable, (except for the futon), the boat dock/lift was wonderful, the pool was cool and inviting. We had a nice, relaxing week. We were a party of 7. I wish the beach was a bit closer. We had to drive 20-25 minutes to get to the beach. The "instruction" book for the house was the most detailed I have ever seen! That was a huge help. I would, and probably will reserve this house again.
Wonderful home and location
The home was beautiful and spacious for our family of 4. We enjoyed the pool and the boat dock was a plus since we had family living just down the road with a boat! Will definitely plan go stay there our next visit there!
The family had a great time. Close to everything we needed. The meat market was great. Would definitely go back again.
OH my!!! We all loved it!!! There was a manatee that swam by everyday around 4:30 and my granddaughter thought it was the neatest thing in the world!!!! The house was amazing!!! Thank you so very much!!! We will come back!!!
Very nice rental! Stocked with all you need!
Excellent experience, would stay again!
Bright, Clean, well appointed home in a great location!
We just spent 5 nights at Manatee Haven and had a wonderful time. The house has everything you need and more. We especially enjoyed the pool and fishing from the dock, my son caught his first snook from the canal. There are great restaurants nearby and it is a short drive to the beaches on Anna Maria Island. The owners and property manager are wonderful and attentive to all needs, and we would definitely stay here again, wish we could have stayed longer!
Palmetto is a lovely waterfront community with a great nature preserve park (Emerson Point) and nice waterfront restaurant. The next-door community, Bradenton, is less than a ten minute drive and has the full range of cultural activities(performing arts center, museum complex) a scenic Riverwalk, and many good restaurants. There are many local marinas to rent boats if you don't bring your own. There are many beautiful beaches at nearby Anna Maria Island (including Holmes Beach and Bradenton Beach and ) as well as on the connected barrier islands of Longboat Key and Siesta Key.
