Bradenton House Rental Photos and Description

4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, sleeps 12-14

Extremely centrally located and less than 7 minutes to the best beaches. Our beautiful home has stunning waterfront views and plenty of space for a large group to relax. Enjoy native plants and wildlife and feed the Manatees that swim in front of our dock often! This ideal vacation destination features a large heated pool, Jacuzzi, outdoor grill area w/ fridge, spacious covered patio, sun deck, deep water boat dock, and a fully-stocked game/activity room including billiards table, ping pong, foos ball, fishing gear, boogie boards, and bicycles.

Bay View has 4 large bedrooms / 3 full baths and sleeps 12-14. The Master Bedroom has a King sized bed and gorgeous views over the pool area down to the Bay. The Guest Master has a Queen sized bed, private bathroom and French Doors leading to the patio and water. The Kids room has a Twin-over-Queen and Twin-over-full Bunk Beds, a toddler bed, a large play area, Playstation 3 console, and direct access to the game room. The Family Room has a Queen bed, fixed-side crib, and extra baby gear including a pack and play, high chair, and stroller. All of the bedrooms have cable TV, alarm clock / radio, plenty of dresser and closet space, two sets of luxury linens, and lots of extra towels, pillows, and blankets.

As soon as you walk through the front door, the Bay View House will wow you with its amazing water views and its ideal set-up for entertaining. Our open concept kitchen features a pass through that allows you to see from the front of the house all the way down to the Bay. The attached dining area easily seats 10 at our oversized table, and 6 more at the kitchen bar area. The kitchen is fully outfitted with stainless steel appliances, microwave, filtered water, and Pampered Chef cookware- everything you need to inspire family meals! Clean-up is a breeze with dishwasher, garbage disposal, and sink overlooking the Bay.

Sliding glass doors open onto panoramic views of the Bay, covered patio, and pool area. From there the patio steps lead down to the dock for excellent fishing, birdwatching, and playing with the Manatees- they love to drink fresh water from our hose and will come right up for some crunchy Romaine lettuce!

We also have an office area with a desktop PC, printer/fax/copier machine, high-speed Internet access, wireless access, a telephone system with free local and long distance service (but not out-of-country), and we have Netflix for downloading movies and TV shows.

We are a recently retired couple who've decided to travel the country in our free time. When we're not on the road, we live just 5 minutes away from the Bay View House and we'll see you on check-in to help get you all settled. We also love giving restaurant and activity recommendations. We raised our family of 5 in the Bay View House and have lived in Bradenton for more than 35 years. Now that our kids are grown, they have also moved back to Bradenton because of its small-town charm with city convenience. We know what a treasure this coastal community is, and we're so excited for you to experience the laid-back Florida lifestyle with the comfort of the Bay View House as your home base.

Tricia Dalton / Ben Bloomston purchased this house in 1986

On the first day we looked at this home, we knew the view was something special. The peak of the canal, where our house sits, was once the site of a Native American community. When our kids were young, they used to dig up arrow-heads in the back yard. Our local museum director visited and said that our site was likely where the Chief made his home, based on the long view of the waterfront. Our neighbors recognize the beauty too, and we've seen lots of beautiful renovations in recent years, making ours one of the most elegant communities in Bradenton.

The wildlife is amazing and right in the back yard. We have a friendly white egret who likes to drink out of the pool, and there are also lots of other native birds including hawks, gulls, and even green Parrots. Of course, the best is the family of Manatees that gathers in the warm waters by our dock. They love to drink from our hose and splash and play. It's a rare treat to interact with these gentle giants so closely.

My family and I stayed at this lovely home last year to celebrate my nephew's high school graduation. We all had a wonderful time including my dog! The owner/ home manager was very attentive to our needs. This is truly a great rental home for a family of all ages. The kids really enjoyed the game room and the pool was used every day! The home is also great for anyone needing wheelchair access, as they have wide door frames. The lovely beach is only a short drive away. The home has every cooking utensil needed to make a great meal for family or friends. The neighborhood is a very safe location. I would highly recommended this rental and would return when our travels brought us back to the area. Thank you for a lovely stay!

Relaxing and easy family fun

The owners were helpful and friendly. The home was nice and comfortable. We enjoyed hanging out there, but there was plenty of sightseeing and recreation nearby to partake in. We liked the peaceful morning view of the bay and the show put on by the birds. Everyone of the dozen people staying had a positive reaction to the house and amenities. Our criticisms were minimal. The home is nice enough to make it special, but not so nice as to make one feel like they can't let loose and relax.

So Relaxing We loved this home!!

We came with a very large family over Thanksgiving- 6 adults and 7 kids and an infant. The house was large and comfortable and the beds were super cozy for us all. The best part was the heated pool that the kids played in all day. There was also a friendly white bird (heron or egret?) that the kids loved to watch when it would hang out in the yard, and the manatees were ear the dock several times during our stay. We also went to the beach once, which was a super easy drive (literally one right turn to get there, about 10 mins), but it was too cold so the pool at the House was better for the kids.

Paul and Tricia were such wonderful hosts and made our time at the Bay View House perfect. They even brought over an extra counter-top convection oven to help with our Thanksgiving side dishes. I would definitely recommend staying here to any travelers who are coming to the gulf coast.

Bay View was the perfect home for our family vacation. We loved being outdoors and the entire property feels so tropical. There were beautiful birds everywhere and they are not kidding about the manatees- we saw them every day and our kids loved it!! The beach is so close and it was wonderful to return to the house and jump right back in the pool. I highly recommend this house!
