Wonderful cottage in paradise!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Paradise Bay bungalow for three weeks while we were house hunting in the Sarasota/Bradenton area. We absolutely loved this bungalow and the owners Staci and Todd. The bungalow was so cute and cozy. The home is welcoming and very well appointed with what we needed throughout our stay. The home also has a magnificent outdoor area to enjoy. The pool and wet bar with TV in the backyard were so relaxing to come home to after a long day of house hunting. The beaches are also close by - Anna Marie Island is the closest just down the street and over the bridge and you are at the beach. There is a Pizza place within walking distance of their bungalow and it was delicious! All you can eat pizza, salad and dessert for $8.99! And the service was awesome too - you will have to wait in line for a seat if you go early the place is always busy. If you don't mind eating later around 7:30 you will have no problem getting a seat quickly. The bungalow also has room for friends to visit too - we had friends come up for the day from Ft. Meyers who spent the night in the second bedroom and it worked out perfect. They too fell in love with this bungalow. We have already shared photos and information on the bungalow to family and friends who all are interested in staying there too. Another treat is the dock at the end of the road if you like to watch the sunset or throw a fishing line in. We could not have enjoyed our visit more. You will NOT be disappointed if you choose this bungalow. The bungalow looks even better in person than the photos! The detail that the owners have done throughout the bungalow are wonderful. Traci and Todd were very responsive to any issues we had while staying at the bungalow. We would definitely stay there again!

EXCEPTIONAL

  • 5 of 5

This place is the BOMB. We went for Spring Break 2016. Owners are very helpful and accessible. Bungalow was spotless, well decorated and every attention to detail was evident. Our favorite place was the patio, pool area. Big screen TV, fridge, and awesome pool. Restaurants, shopping and beaches are all close. We will be back again. Thanks again for a great place to stay.

We're back.

  • 5 of 5

This is our second year to stay at this property. It was awesome the first time and even better this trip. We bring our kids and have plenty of room. The heated pool is the definitely our highlight and the large patio/TV area is perfect for outdoor dining. The grocery stores and shopping are so close that you can just drive up the street and back in a short amount of time and back at the pool to continue relaxation. The owners are so friendly and have done an excellent job of creating a small paradise. We look forward to coming back and highly recommend this property for a relaxing stay.

Outstanding Oasis Close to Everything

  • 5 of 5

This is a gorgeous property that exceeded our expectations. The modern bungalow is beautiful and includes all that you need. The owners have lovingly created an oasis with unique artistic touches around the house and pool. The backyard pool is truly amazing, surrounded by lush landscaping that gives you a sense of complete privacy. The house is only a five minute drive to the beach, boat rentals, great restaurants, grocery stores, and terrific seafood markets. You are also only 15 minutes from Sarasota and 45 minutes from St. Pete. The location really is central for doing lots of things. The owners are extremely friendly and helpful. Our week went by too fast. We highly recommend this property and will definitely return. It is a gem.

Excellent

  • 5 of 5

The bungalow was everything we hoped it to be. The pool and outdoor entertainment area was wonderful. The owners are very friendly and willfully assist to make your stay a pleasant one. The month went by so fast we wish we could have stayed longer. Maybe next year we could stay for 2 months!

Spectacular!!!

  • 5 of 5

This rental is just spectacular! Beautiful home with everything you need (including sugar, salt & pepper) to make your stay comfortable and memorable. We were here Christmas week and the house even had a Christmas tree! We are familiar with the area and wanted to be close to Anna Maria Island and Bradenton Riverwalk and Old Main Street, this was perfect for us. We highly recommend this property.
