4 Bedrooms, 2 Bath, Sleeps 8 (1,650 sq ft indoor + 1,600+ outdoor living space)
Modern amenities blended with a touch of old Spanish charm! Clean, spacious, cool and comfortable 4-bedroom home, big enough for the whole family to stretch out (1,650 square feet, plus over 1,600 square feet of screened in outdoor living space as well).
Enjoy dinner out in the screened courtyard, or sit back with a cold drink by the pool or spa after a long day in the beautiful Florida sunshine! The screened in saltwater pool and spa area offer over 1,600 square feet to stretch out and is a nice reprieve from the flying Florida critters that like to harass in the evenings. And with a solar heated pool, and an option to heat the spa, an evening swim or a relaxing spa session may be in order!
Literally steps away from Palma Sola Bay where you can see Manatee swimming in the marina or grab a rod and reel and sit by the water's edge and relax. Or maybe you'd like to take a cruise around Palma Sola Bay on one of our Beach Cruiser bikes?
If you love to cook, you'll be happy to know that the kitchen is fully stocked with hardly a utensil or need overlooked. Pull out the blender for a homemade Piña Colada or cook a nice meal - you'll have everything you need.
When the day is done and you're feeling content, slide into soft sheets, fluffy pillows, and a big comfortable king sized bed with your favorite book! Or catch-up on your favorite shows with complementary Directv or access your Netflix/Hulu/Amazon account from our smart TV (Master Bedroom).
Tuck the kids and their tired little eyes into one of our three guest rooms. Guest rooms one and two are equipped with two twin beds each (XL twin beds in guest room 2), and guest room three has one full sized bed and a smart TV for Netflix/Hulu/Amazon access.
Palma Sola Retreat is in a wonderful location. Steps from Palma Sola Bay, and a short seven minute drive across the bay to the beautiful white sand Gulf beaches of Anna Maria Island.
On the Bay, be sure to check out the paddle boards and kayak rentals which are on location, rent jet skis or look into beach horse riding!
Nearby Robinson's Preserve is a great place for a hike or bike ride with the family, or maybe a morning run?
Have time for 18? Hit one of the area's many beautiful golf courses!
Publix Grocery is less than a mile away, The Fresh Market is 1.1 miles away, and Richard's Wholefoods Foodporium is 2.5 miles further down the street.

About James & Regan
We are a family of five and love Bradenton and Anna Maria Island. It's our little corner of paradise! We're always excited for our guests to experience what the area has to offer.
James & Regan purchased this House in 2013
Why James & Regan chose Bradenton
800 feet from the water and extremely close proximity to all the areas attractions.
What makes this House unique
Solar heated salt water pool with screened enclosure, over 1,600 square feet of screened in outdoor living space in addition to the home's 1,600+ square feet, spa/hot tub, 5 bicycles, 3 televisions, split floor plan, unique outdoor courtyard dining, fishing poles, beach gear, and 800 feet from Palma Sola Bay and the private Marina. We are a family of five and we often host extended family and friends as well, so we understand how frustrating it can be to stay in a home without enough silverware, or dishes, or towels. We go the extra mile to make sure you have what you need, and that your stay is comfortable.

Perfect beach home!
We loved every single moment at this wonderful beach home! James and Reagan are wonderful hosts. The pool and the house amenities are perfect too! You won't regret it!
Beautiful and well equipped
We had a wonderful stay. Thank you so much James and Regan. The house was beautiful. It had everything we needed and more. The towels and all the extra toys and equipment to use made everything so much easier, we pretty much only needed our clothes and toothbrushes! The kitchen was well equipped (the only thing we found lacking was a grater!), and the outside area was stunning. We loved watching the birds, especially the owl that had made its home in the tree in the back garden, and looking out for the manatees just down the road. The pool was a lovely size - it wasn't especially warm, but nice and refreshing after being in the sun - and the jacuzzi (spa) was lovely to relax in. That got very warm! It was great to have the BBQ, we used that almost every evening, and the outside furniture was fabulous too.
Inside the house was clean and beautiful. Our youngest daughter loved sleeping 'in the cupboard', and the beds were really comfortable.
James and Regan were just a call away and more than happy to help with any problems we had. There is lots to do in the area. My only recommendation would be to provide some information on good restaurants/beaches/things to do. However, we managed well without that, and enjoyed Anna maria Island very much. All in all a wonderful stay. If it wasn't so far, we'd definitely be back!
We enjoyed our stay very much. The house was super clean and had all the amenities you need. For us, as a family with two children, everything we needed was there. The equipment is of high quality at the decisive points. High quality also with the beds, great towels for bath, pool and beach made the stay very pleasant. The fantastic beaches were easy to reach. We all loved the great pool and whirlpool, which is highly recommended. Thank you James and Regan.
We’re so glad you enjoyed your stay, and thank you for your kind words! You and the family are always welcome.
Vacationed at this property March 17 - 24, 2018. Great location for Anna Maria island, LECOM park and access to stores and restaurants. A quiet neighborhood with manatees at the marina just down the street! The house accommodated us well. Kitchen appliances, pots, pans dishes, etc. and bathroom towels were stocked. Outside also great with pool/hot tub and lovely outdoor dining area. Would recommend highly. Have fun!
We’re so glad you enjoyed your stay! Appreciate the nice comments - come back and see us soon! You at always welcome.
We were very happy with the property, the area, and the owners. The home was comfortable, clean and the amenities were up to standards. James was very attentive and available to take care of any discrepancies that may have arose............and for that we were truly grateful. We would definitely stay again and would recommend to anyone to take advantage of the hot tub for the extra price. Thank you again to James, Regan, and Family
Lonnie, Noreen, and Family
Thank you for the kind words - we enjoyed having you as our guest! You are welcome back any time you’re in the neighborhood!
Beautiful and quiet
This was our second time staying at this lovely home. It is in a wonderful location, steps from a marina with manatee viewing. All shopping, restaurants, Anna Marie Island and beaches are a short distance away. The neighborhood is quiet and the pool area relaxing. The house is spacious with ample room for guests. The kitchen is well stocked. James and Regan are very responsive to any needs or questions. Our family created some wonderful memories. Thank you James and Regan, we thoroughly enjoyed!!
Thank you so much for staying with us again, we enjoyed having you! You will always be welcome!!!
Steps away from Palma Sola Bay. Watch the Manatee swimming in the marina or go fishing, paddle boarding, horseback riding, jet skiing, kayaking or simply go swimming at Palma Sola Bay Beach. (Surfer bus has paddle boards and kayak rentals on location, coastal water sports AMI for jet skis - also check out Beach horses). From there it's only a short 7-minute drive across the bay to Anna Maria Island and the beautiful white sand beaches of the Gulf of Mexico! Have time for 18? Hit one of the area's many beautiful golf courses!
