About the property

4 Bedroom 3 Bathroom Canal Pool Home By Manatee River Well-Located

Enjoy waterfront living at its finest in conveniently-located Palmetto. Spacious, well-appointed house on pristine canal just off the Manatee River has something for boaters and non-boaters alike. Its 10,000 lb capacity boat lift will have you cruising down the river in no time, or you can simply laze on the dock watching the fish and birds. The waterfront deck boasts a pool, jacuzzi and sauna; if you tire of the sun the covered porch has overhead fans and a retractable awning. Inside, mount a spiral staircase to the private master suite, with a king-sized bed, luxurious bathroom with jetted tub, and huge walk-in closet. Downstairs boasts yet another suite, with a queen bed, a walk-in closet and cozy bathroom. Two more bedrooms have twin sleeping for four, big closets and a large, well-appointed hall bathroom with a tub. Enjoy cooking in the gourmet kitchen, with its granite countertops and loads of storage space. Dine in style in the dining or Florida rooms. For indoor entertainment, the living room has a big screen tv and dvd player. The house has wireless internet and a wireless printer; laundry facilities will accommodate oversize loads. Conveniently located for shopping and recreation, this house is only 3 minutes away from a butcher shop and a fresh produce stand, and only five minutes away from grocery and drug stores, as well as a health club. Nature trails and a bay-side beach are only a few minutes drive to Emerson Point Park. The white sand and clear Gulf water of Bradenton Beach is less than a 25 minute drive; the fabulous Sarasota Beaches only minutes past it. Everything you need for a perfect waterfront vacation is here at your fingertips!

About Judith Starr

We are D.C.-area professionals who have family in Palmetto, who first drew us to the area. We fell in love with the area when visiting, while relishing the opportunity to spend more time with family members. We love the friendliness of the people here as well as its natural beauty. Our jobs keep us in the DC area most of the year, so we come down when we can and share our dream house the rest of the time.

Judith Starr purchased this house in 2014

Why Judith Starr chose Palmetto

Location, location, location. The location on the water couldn't be better and geographically has the best of both worlds -- a lovely quiet canal street that is also centrally located near everything you need. The house itself is full of light, spacious and comfortable. The location is perfect for exploring the Gulf Coast - convenient to Tampa, St. Petersburg, Orlando, Bradenton and Sarasota. You can create the Florida vacation of your dreams -- it is all nearby!

What makes this house unique

It is a great place to hang out in, whether you like to swim, sun, take saunas, bird watch, boat, kayak, paddle board or barbecue, and is also a great jumping off point for trips to parks and beaches. There are also loads of cultural activities a few minutes away in Bradenton (Riverwalk, museum, performing arts center), and Sarasota is a reasonable trip as well. Palmetto has a small town flavor, with shopping and parks minutes from the house. The outlet mall is 7 miles away where incredible bargains can be found. We have taken great care to furnish and stock this house with everything to make you go 'wow' and like us, you'll never want to leave!

Wonderful house, good location, many amenities

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Manatee Haven the 3rd week of July. We arrived on a Saturday. The house was clean and the a/c was on. The beds were comfortable, (except for the futon), the boat dock/lift was wonderful, the pool was cool and inviting. We had a nice, relaxing week. We were a party of 7. I wish the beach was a bit closer. We had to drive 20-25 minutes to get to the beach. The "instruction" book for the house was the most detailed I have ever seen! That was a huge help. I would, and probably will reserve this house again.

Bright, Clean, well appointed home in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

We just spent 5 nights at Manatee Haven and had a wonderful time. The house has everything you need and more. We especially enjoyed the pool and fishing from the dock, my son caught his first snook from the canal. There are great restaurants nearby and it is a short drive to the beaches on Anna Maria Island. The owners and property manager are wonderful and attentive to all needs, and we would definitely stay here again, wish we could have stayed longer!
