Photos and Description of this 5 bedroom holiday home in Bradenton - Paradise Bay Resort

5 Bedroom / 4 Bathroom, Heated Pool & Jacuzzi, Game Room, And More !

This home is on the bay with direct access to the Gulf of Mexico, with spectacular views of the causeway leading to Anna Maria Island. It has five (5) bedrooms, four (4) bathrooms located in northwest Bradenton - less than 10 minutes from the island beaches. The property is surrounded by tropical landscaping, has a heated swimming pool, a large hot tub, and a private dock. A pontoon boat is available at the dock for rental as well.

The home has a large master bedroom, located on the 2nd floor with french doors leading to the deck / balcony area overlooking the bay. It has a king-size Sleep Number bed and large full private bathroom. Note that all of the bedrooms have plenty of closet space, tvs , ceiling fans, etc. Adjacent to the master bedroom is private sitting room. On the other side of the house, there are two bedrooms also located on the 2nd floor with its own stairway access. One is a king bedroom that has a toddler bed, the other is a large bunk bedroom with 3 bunk bed set-ups. There is a twin over twin bunk bed, one twin over full bunk bed and a day bed with a separate trundle bed - so this room can sleep up to 7 kids, if needed. There is a shared bathroom between these two bedrooms.

On the 1st floor, is another king bedroom perfect for grand parents or those who cannot manage the stairs. The 5th bedroom also on the 1st floor, has a queen bed with a crib. The two downstairs bedrooms also share another large bathroom between them, but is accessible to the game room area. The 4th bathroom is located at the rear of the house and doubles as the pool / patio bathroom, as it has two doors, one from the living room area and the rear patio area.

The home has a beautifulr kitchen that is fully outfitted for everything you would need. Most bedrooms have its own tv and there is a large tv in the living room.. The entire house has beautiful tiled floors, with the several rooms having wood finished ceilings. The dining room can handle up to 12 guests with two added bar / eating areas in the kitchen. The living room area has seating for 10 to 12 guests. The laundry room has full-size washer & dryer located off the kitchen.

The billiards / pool table room is directly off the main entrance to the house. There are also plenty of board games, variety of books, and a stereo. We have a foosball table, electronic darts, and a game table. The outside heated swimming pool and covered patio area is quite large and overlooks the bay. It has plenty of lounge chairs, several patio tables, a large bbq grill area, and a pool refrigerator. We also have a number of beach chairs, beach umbrella, beach and pool toys. We just added an outdoor PingPong table!

This property is fabulous and has a large back yard area overlooking the bay. The water is beautiful and has numerous fish, we occasionally have manatees and dolphins right by the dock. There are also a variety of ducks, blue herons, osprey, eagles, and other wild aquatic birds. The dock is great to watch sunsets from, go fishing, or simply enjoy eating out on the picnic table located right on the dock. This vacation home is just 'off island' and you can be on Anna maria island beaches in roughly 10 minutes - depending on traffic. The property 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.

About Mark Rudek & Gail Rose

My wife and I have enjoyed this home for years - as it was our family home. However, all of the kids are now out on their own and we have decided to down-size to a much smaller home.

Mark Rudek & Gail Rose purchased this house in 2000

Why Mark Rudek & Gail Rose chose Florida South Central Gulf Coast

Our property is absolutely fantastic ! You will enjoy all it has to offer - from the Bay and sunset views over the water to the vast number of amenities for the house itself. There is a pontoon boat available with the house for an additional fee.

What makes this house unique

This home is very large and will accommodate a large group of guests. The general areas such as the Kitchen and Living Room areas are fantastic, including the covered patio areas, the heated pool and hot tub surrounded by tropical landscaping, and much more ! We have our own dock with a pontoon available for $600/week.

Please take time to learn about our vacation home.

Fun for family and friends!

  • 5 of 5

We had a large group of friends and family. It was a wonderful stay, beautiful setting and lots of fun! Able to have wonderful family cookouts and saw lots of manatees off the dock. Close fishing and a wonderful boat. Also cheap uber rides onto the island. Loved it!

Awesome Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic family vacation! Gail and Mark's home has everything you could possibly need. It's clean and there was plenty of room for the 10 of us and everyone loved the house and had the best time. When the kids weren't swimming or boating they were playing pool in the family room. We're already deciding when we will be vacationing in the area again and we'll surely be staying at Gail and Marks home again.

Loved having the ice machine, it's a very thoughtful touch for the guests. We could easily pack coolers with beverages and snacks for our afternoons on the Pontoon boat. We went out to Jewfish Key Island several days. We did some shelling in the water off Beer Can Island. The water is so clear, you can clearly see the bottom and we got some very nice shells. We also enjoyed some great area restaurants; we especially liked 'The Seafood Shack' and had some great Gulf Grouper and a fabulous Lobster and Shrimp Cobb Salad. Mar Vista's food was also great; try the stuffed Flounder!

The house has a big kitchen with plenty to prepare meals for the family as well. We grilled several times outside on the patio. It was so relaxing to swim in the gorgeous pool and we all loved the tropical back yard as well as the beautiful furnished patio with the big refrigerator and a TV. The backyard is completely fenced which was nice for our little dog.

The only thing I would change for next time is to have our vacation be for 2 weeks!

Thank you,

Karen and family

Great vacation home

  • 5 of 5

Our whole family thoroughly enjoyed this beautiful property. It was very accommodating and had everything a family would want or need. Our daughter's family had their dog along and our granddaughter's hamster was very comfortable here too. The outside area with the pool and hot tub and seating areas were great. A sincere thank you to the owners for the use of their home from our whole family!

Wonderful vacation

  • 5 of 5

We are a large family who travel together every year. We have been all over Florida and have stayed in many many homes across the region. This home has been by far the cleanest home we have ever stayed in. We have no complaints. The owners were very gracious and helpful. The grounds and pool were very nice and the boat was a nice amenity.there was plenty of room for all of and we will certainly be back. Thank you both for sharing your home with us.

Fantastic week!

  • 5 of 5

My fiancé (now husband!) and I chose this house to get married with our family in attendance. The garden was beautiful and the facilities were amazing so we had the best wedding. Both us and our family had a very comfortable stay as there was so much room and so much to do for everyone. The hot tub and the pool were definitely my favourite. We rented the boat for a couple of days and saw dolphins, manatees and more. Gail and Mark were so helpful with any questions we had. We really want to come back one day for an anniversary. It was the best trip ever - Gail and Mark, thank you so much for the use of your amazing home!

Just Awesome

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had the best of best times. First we had a great and warm welcome from the owners. We had (4) grand kids and (6) adults for what was a great experience. We rented the boat for the week and we saw Dolphins, Sand Dollars, Bald Eagles and more. The home is just what you want, tons of room and an area for each family. The pool and hot tub was heaven, you just don't want to leave. Gail and Mark, thanks for the use if your home, the best we ever rented.
