About the property

Paradise on the Water is a great resort family home - pool, dock, boat, hot tub.

Our vacation home, which we call 'Paradise on the Water' is a 5 bedroom home with 2 full bathrooms and a hot / cold pool shower. There is a large heated screened in swimming pool and a large outdoor Hot Tub - plus a large Game Room area.

Each bedroom has lots of closet space, a cable TV, a stereo system, alarm clock, ceiling fan/light, etc. We also have a crib, high chair, stroller, play pen, and other baby / infant items if needed. The Master Bedroom (King bed) includes a French Door to the pool area, plus a Private Bathroom. Two more Guest bedrooms are located on the left-side of the house - with 1King Bed and 2 twins. The Office / Den area has a Queen bed.. The Bunk Bedroom has 2 sets of bunk beds, a Twin over Twin bunk bed and a Twin over Full bunk bed, plus a large sectional couch and a twin bed. Note that the bunk beds have full size mattresses and can comfortably handle kids or adults - so 5 to 7 guests / kids can actually stay in this one bedroom.

The home has a designer Kitchen, with granite counter-tops and solid wood cabinets. It is fully outfitted for everything you would need. We provide high-speed Internet access along with wireless access, plus a printer. We have a large TV in the Living Room. The entire house has beautiful tiled floors, carpet in the bedrooms, and is nicely decorated. The Dining Room can handle up to 8 guests with room for another 4 or more guests at the Kitchen Bar area. The Living Room has seating for 10 to 12 guests.

The Laundry Room has full-size machines, located next to the large Game Room. There is a Billiards / Pool Table, an Air Hockey Table, a Ping Pong Table and electronic darts provided. There are plenty of board games, plus library books, stereo, etc. The heated swimming pool and surrounding area is quite large and overlooks the Bayou. It has plenty of lounge chairs, several patio tables, a large BBQ grill area, and much more. On the right side of the property next to the pool area, is a storage room that has a number of beach chairs an umbrella, beach and pool toys, boogie boards, skim boards, and so forth. The Hot Tub is located on the opposite end of the pool area, again looking out over the Bayou.

This property is fabulous overlooking the Bayou, which leads out into the Manatee River / Bay area. The Bayou is beautiful and has numerous fish. There are also a variety of ducks, blue herons, cranes, storks, osprey, eagles, and other wild aquatic birds. The home also has a large dock area. The Canal has lots of fish, so you can fish from the dock. There are also two large parks within a 5 minute drive of the home. There are trails, hiking, biking, kayaking, beach areas, and more.

The home 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.

First of all, Sharon's communication with us was excellent. Secondly, the house was perfect. So clean and so well equipped and maintained. The children enjoyed the game room and the beautiful indoor pool and hot tub. All of the bedrooms are large along with the kitchen and the family room; there was ample seating for all twelve of us. The boys rented a boat and docked it in the canal in our back yard. We loved boating through the canals as well as to various islands. The weather could not have been more perfect for a week in November. We loved the location--just a boat ride to Anna Maria Island or just a few minutes by car. Grocery stores, restaurants, and shopping are all just minutes away. If you are traveling with a large family, this rental is perfect. We had our little six month old grand daughter, and after mentioning this to Sharon, there was a high chair, stroller and pack-n-play for her comfort. Thank you, Sharon, for this wonderful opportunity in Bradenton, Florida.

We loved our stay at "Paradise on the Water"

  • 4 of 5

My family and I stayed here for a weekend, and we loved the house. They have everything you need, dishes down to games and entertainment, lots of towels for the pool and towels for the showers. We enjoyed our time here even though it was short. The pool is nice and keep clean, side note if you have little kids its a deep pool I think like 7 foot at the deep end. However my kids are 4 and 6 and they did just find in the shallow end. The beds are nice and comfy and the rooms are a good size. I would stay here again for sure!

Very clean, spacious, beautiful property that is equipped with everything you need for your stay.

  • 5 of 5

This property is very well kept. My family of 14 fit perfectly in this home. The kids room was a big hit as they had their own space to play. This home had everything we needed to have a great vacation, right down to towels pots, plates and spices! They literally had everything there, that all you needed to buy was food! The open concept floor plan made it so comfortable for our family. The living room felt so warm and inviting. All the beds were comfortable as well. The pool and dock were amazing. It is a great location, with the beach about 5-10 minutes away. We will definitely be renting again.

Great Stay!

  • 5 of 5

Excellent house. Met all of our needs. Garage is turned into the bedroom with bunk beds and a game room giving this house a ton of space. Plenty to do at the house and a quick 5-10 minute drive from the beach. This house is under new management and I noticed that the new management is much better at communicating and providing great service. Would easily stay at this home again!

Great Stay!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay here was definitely an enjoyable one. The house was listed as described. Communication with Sharon was easy and she answered all of questions and concerns in a timely manner. The house is in a nice quiet neighborhood. Drive way was large and able to fit 4 cars comfortably. Shopping, food, and the beach were less than 10 mins away which was perfect for what we were looking for. The house itself was very well maintained. kitchen stocked with everything we could need. The bedrooms were spacious and clean. Lots of clean towels were available for us with a washer and dryer in unit if needed. The house comfortably fit all 8 of us but could easily sleep probably up to 12 with how much space there was. The garage was turned into a rec space which we definitely enjoyed during our stay. And the pool was clean and well kept. A few pool toys were available but we ended up getting a few more for the kids and left them there. Overall, we had a fantastic stay and would recommend it for those of you with a large group!
