Overview

Bradenton House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

3 Bedroom / 2 Bathroom / Pool Home

This lush landscaped lakefront home is nestled among stately palms and oaks. The expansive plantings provide privacy and beautiful secluded views of the lake and its abundant wildlife from the backyard courtyard, pool, and main living areas. Blue Heron, Ibis, Egrets, and Roseate Spoonbills are just a few of the birds that make daily appearances on our shores, while turtles, ducks, and squirrels come out to feed just beyond the pool area each evening on the wide expanse of lawn protected under towering oaks.

The interior of the home is light-filled and cheerfully painted in bold hues. The comfortable living area has bright woven carpets and art from around the world. There is bar seating with four stools near the cedar dining area overlooking the pool. The kitchen has new appliances, and every dish and service you will need for dinners in or outside on the patio. The laundry area with washer and dryer is conveniently located just off the kitchen. Entertainment is available from the stereo CD player, Cable TV with VCR/DVD player and wireless Internet.

In the master bedroom, you'll luxuriate in a king-sized bed, a walk- in closet, enjoy Cable TV, and an en-suite bath with shower. A small office area overlooking the pool is the perfect place to use the high-speed wireless Internet, or take your laptop to the pool and anywhere in the surrounding garden. A second bedroom in the front of the house has ivory beach hues with a queen-sized bed and walk-in closet while the third bedroom has Florida Beach-themed bedding on a king-sized bed with ample closet and bureau space. The two back bedrooms share the central bath with both tub and shower.

We know you will enjoy your stay at this lush garden home where Florida landscapes are seen from the inside out!

About The Owner

A note from Steve and Laurie:

Having raised a family in South America while teaching internationally, we were naturally drawn to Southwest Florida’s tropical climate and serene beauty. We spent our first year on Ana Maria Island, and quickly grew used to our evening beach walks at sunset, weekend swims with dolphin sighting, and some of the best fishing in the country. As we moved out to explore the Boutique city of Sarasota with its artistic influence on museums, theater, and outstanding restaurants, we realized there was a great deal more to experience in the area. Our present home puts us right in the center of everything!

The Owner purchased this house in 2003

Why The Owner chose Bradenton

Location, location! Our lakeside-boating community is beautiful, active and friendly. It is central to all the activities we enjoy: beach, bike riding, hiking, and boating to the West near the Island Intercoastal waterways; live music, art, upscale restaurants, and shopping at Saint Armonds and Sarasota to the South; international theater and sailing in Tampa to the North; and one of the best discount shopping areas for miles around in the Prime Outlets of Ellenton, just minutes away to the East!

What makes this house unique

We prefer the natural aspects of our community best! We have access to a boating ramp at the end of our street and can quickly be enjoying the beauty of the Manatee River and the Gulf of Mexico- a fisherman's paradise. Taking in the tranquil views of nature at Sunrise is a great way to start the day. A wide variety of magnificent shorebirds feed on the sunlit water, while playful ducks, squirrels, cardinals and jays vie for attention and seed treats on the wide expanse of lawn! Darting turtles will swim in droves and gather on the beach in hopes of a piece of action, as well. If you need a heavy dose of rest punctuate by outdoor adventures, cultural sightseeing and diverse cuisine, come to our unique home.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Our family coming from CT, NYC, and California enjoyed your lovely, comfortable home! We recently lost our dear sister and appreciated being able to be together in such a peaceful setting, close to the water, the stores, pharmacies, main roads and anything we might need. Watching the birds on the backyard lake and daily parades and visits by the "red hat lady ducklings was very nice. Thank you for making available your delightful home which was perfect for our needs!

We think of this beautiful house daily!

  • 5 of 5
The title says it all; we truly think of our time at this house daily and often say how we wish we were back in Bradenton! From the open and spacious ranch to the fabulous screened in outside area with the beautiful pool, the entire house is a delight. We stayed in the home with our 1 year old twins. While we had to rent 2 pack n plays, the house was completely suitable for them otherwise. The master bed was comfortable and each room was spacious. The screened in pool was our favorite highlight. Watching the wildlife from the pool was a lot of fun and the visits from the ducks made our day! The neighborhood was quiet and peaceful. We definitely plan to be back and are so sad to see how far into next year this house is booked, but completely understand why! If I lived here, I would never leave. Thank you for opening up your beautiful home and look forward to doing business in the future.

Paradise Found

  • 5 of 5
We loved our week here. The neighborhood is pretty and quiet. We loved the pond in the back. Lots of wildlife - birds of all kinds and softshell turtles. The house is comfortable, just like home and had more supplies than most places I've rented in the past. We explored beaches as far south as Venice and as far north as Anna Maria. Convenience is exceptional here - all of these beaches were within 30 minutes or so. There are also a Walmart, Publix and Walgreens just down the street. Steve was a great person to rent from and endured my many questions via email, graciously. We absolutely hope to rent again!

The house was well kept and clean upon arrival! We enjoyed our stay! Quite neighborhood, everyone was very nice. We had a miscommunication on the arrival date and had to stay the first night in a Hotel. The owner was very sorry and extremley fair on the remainder of our stay! I would stay there again!

First Time in FL

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful week stay in this home. House and grounds were clean and well maintained. Had a couple of minor issues. A towel rack in one of the bathrooms fell off the wall the first time the towel was removed. The electrical outlets in the master bath were dead. The Realtor came to the house and reset a breaker in the garage; no further problem. There was only two washcloths in the house. Realtor said he had to contact owner before he could buy additional washcloths for us. We never heard from him again during the week. We went to Walmart and bought some; inconvenient but not a big deal. We would come back and would recommend it to friends.

Lovely, Peaceful Stay

  • 5 of 5
This was one of the nicest homes we've rented in Florida. The decor is so very homelike and the view of the lake over the pool is just lovely. It had everything we could need to make the stay a happy and peaceful one.
