Overview

About the property

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.

Very quaint and roomy for our 7 adults, 4 children and 3 dogs. Mark and Gail were great renters!

  • 5 of 5

We swam, boated, cooked our own meals, took sunset cruises. Very spacious and cozy. Room to be together and room for privacy. Nice and unique. Very relaxed atmosphere.

Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Spent 7 wonderful days with family and friends. We had 3 families with a total 12 people ranging in various ages. We have rented several homes in the past and by far this one was the best, very clean, well maintained, well stocked with everything we needed. The kids enjoyed the game room and everyone enjoyed the beautiful pool and the well maintained hot tub. We had coffee on the dock every morning, we saw various wildlife our favorite being the manatees and dolphins that greeted us everyday. We loved that we were off the hustle and bustle of the island, but we could still enjoy all the attractions of the island since it was a very short drive to the island beaches and all the stores you needed were within 5 minutes of the home. Thank you Gail and Mark for providing us with such a wonderful place to stay, I look forward to renting from you again!!!

Great house, lots of room!!

  • 5 of 5

We had 14 people with us on our vacation, 8 adults and 6 children! We all had an excellent time and there was plenty of space for everyone! Unfortunately, the weather was not in our favor for most of the week, but staying in this house gave us lots of options! From the outside sitting area (my father-in-law's favorite spot), to the pool table and fooseball table, there were plenty of other things that we all could do until the rain passed. On our first day, we saw dolphins playing in the bay, a manatee came up to greet us and we caught so many fish, even the non-fishermen enjoyed being on the dock! Gail and Mark are excellent owners! One of the TVs in a bedroom wouldn't come on, so I let Gail know. The next day, Mark was there with a brand new TV! Thank you so much for letting us enjoy your beautiful house! We will definitely be back!!

Tropical relaxing oasis

  • 5 of 5

Had a very relaxing fun week at this amazing property. It was myself, my husband our 8 year old son, my father and his wife and my mother in law. There was plenty room for everyone to have their private space and time yet the house was set up perfectly for family gatherings. The pool table foosball table and ping pong table provided hours of fun and laughs. The cabinet full of books provided many hours of peace for those who enjoy reading. The backyard is absolutely beautiful and extremely relaxed. The pool was refreshing and the highlight of my son's week. We loved the dock and sitting out by the water just relaxing enjoying the view and watching the birds. Gail and Mark, the owners, could not have been more accommodating. They happened to be out of town on the day of our arrival but made sure their friend Dave was there and available for all of our questions that day. He was extremely knowledgeable and a great help. We will definitely be going back.

A wonderful blessing for our family!

  • 5 of 5

We had an unforgettable experience at your property this past week. I was there with my nine children ranging in ages from 8 years old up to 28 years old, along with my dauther-in-law and two grandchildren ages 3 and almost 1. We went to a different beach along the Sarasota/Bradenton corridor each day, enjoyed the pool, went fishing off of the back dock, played pool and table tennis, and had a great time! My Aunt Ruby lives in Bradenton and we came down to see her - she is 92 years old - and she loves to play games with the whole family - from Go-Fish with the young ones, to Monopoly with the older ones, to Pinnocle with the oldest - and she plays to win! So, this was truly a blessing for all of our family. You have a lovely house and it will well equipped - it had everything that we needed. Thanks so much for a wonderful vacation - one that we will always cherish. We are already talking about returning next year!

Gary (and Elizabeth and all the kids!)
