Choose Your Scenery

Renting a vacation home instead of staying at a pricey hotel means that your options are as limitless as the Florida coast. You could wind up in a condo on River Strand Golf & Country Club, a luxury 27-hole championship golf course. Grab a downtown home in the heart of Bradenton and enjoy all the restaurants, nightlife, and shops that the city has to offer.

Watch cranes from your back porch or seek a house near a fishing hole. Relax on a historic Florida estate or seek out a contemporary property with stylish flair. You can even find a rental community or escape from it all in a secluded, rural spot. Don't let a hotel dictate your location and scenery: choose it yourself.

Experience Bradenton Cuisine

While one of the best amenities in your rental house will be the live-in kitchen, that doesn't mean you can't enjoy all the best restaurants Bradenton has to offer. Start by sampling the city's best Cuban fare at the aptly-named Jose's Real Cuban Food. Jose's specializes in honest Cuban food made with fresh ingredients. The restaurant also makes four-person paella, but a three-hour notice is required. Next, head over to Ortygia, where guests are treated to authentic Sicilian dishes and five-star hospitality. If you're in the mood to splurge, don't miss out on the massive Antipasto Ultimo sampler platter.

Modern Houses with Modern Amenities

Want to cook with fresh local ingredients, including some of Florida's famous fresh seafood? Look for properties with large kitchens. You'll be whipping up plates of mahi mahi or grouper in no time. Want to send pictures of tonight's dinner to your jealous friends and family back home? Many properties come equipped with wireless internet so you can stay connected while on vacation. If you can't bear to bring your four-legged family members at home, search for pet-friendly vacation rentals near Bradenton Beach.
