About the property

4 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 8

Modern amenities blended with a touch of old Spanish charm! Clean, spacious, cool and comfortable 4-bedroom home, big enough for the whole family to stretch out.

Enjoy dinner out in the screened courtyard, or sit back with a cold drink by the pool or spa after a long day in the beautiful Florida sunshine! The screened in pool and spa are a nice reprieve from the flying Florida critters that like to harass in the evenings. And with a solar heated pool, and an option to super-heat the spa, an evening swim or a relaxing spa session may be in order!

Literally steps away from Palma Sola Bay where you can see Manatee swimming in the marina or grab a rod and reel and sit by the water's edge and relax. Or maybe you'd like to take a cruise around Palma Sola Bay on one of our Beach Cruiser bikes?

If you love to cook, you'll be happy to know that the kitchen is fully stocked with hardly a utensil or need overlooked. Pull out the blender for a homemade Piña Colada or cook a nice meal - you'll have everything you need.

When the day is done and you're feeling content, slide into soft sheets, fluffy pillows, and a big comfortable king sized bed with your favorite book! Or catch-up on your favorite shows with complementary Directv or access your Netflix/Hulu/Amazon account from our smart TV (Master Bedroom).

Tuck the kids and their tired little eyes into one of our three guest rooms. Guest rooms one and two are equipped with two twin beds each (XL twin beds in guest room 2), and guest room three has one full sized bed and a smart TV for Netflix/Hulu/Amazon access.

Palma Sola Retreat is in a wonderful location. Steps from Palma Sola Bay, and a short seven minute drive across the bay to the beautiful white sand Gulf beaches of Anna Maria Island.

On the Bay, be sure to check out the paddle boards and kayak rentals which are on location, rent jet skis or look into beach horse riding!

Nearby Robinson's Preserve is a great place for a hike or bike ride with the family, or maybe a morning run?

Have time for 18? Hit one of the area's many beautiful golf courses!



Publix Grocery is less than a mile away, The Fresh Market is 1.1 miles away, and Richard's Wholefoods Foodporium is 2.5 miles further down the street.

About James & Regan

We are a family of five and love Bradenton and Anna Maria Island. It's our little corner of paradise! We're always excited for our guests to experience what the area has to offer.

James & Regan purchased this house in 2013

What makes this house unique

Solar heated pool with screened enclosure, spa/hot tub, 5 bicycles, 3 televisions, split floor plan, unique outdoor courtyard dining, fishing poles, beach gear, and steps from Palma Sola Bay and the private Marina. We are a family of five and we often host extended family and friends as well, so we understand how frustrating it can be to stay in a home without enough silverware, or dishes, or towels. We go the extra mile to make sure you have what you need, and that your stay is comfortable.

Beautiful home. Great pool & hot tub. Everything you need for a perfect beach vacation. Bikes were an added bonus as we used them every day.

This was by far the best place for our family to stay at for the first time visiting the west coast of Florida. Beautiful home, beautiful beaches close by. The owner was very helpful with everything! We will definitely be staying here again next time we visit!

Lovely vacation home with pool & spa

  • 4 of 5

Three adults visiting in December and we enjoyed the experience very much. We found the home to be very clean and stocked with the essentials. Instructions provided by the owners was informative and helpful. The pool and spa were wonderful. Glad we went with the option for additional heating of the spa. The location is convenient for beaches, shopping, restaurants. Easy to get around. Quiet neighborhood. We would recommend this home and would consider renting again. Thank you, James and Regan.

Very comfortable for our family of 6

  • 5 of 5

We had a very comfortable stay with our family of two adults and four teenage children. The house is spacious with four bedrooms and two bathrooms. It will sleep 7 adults comfortably and there is an additional bed tucked into a closet that could accommodate a child. We were visiting family living nearby for the Thanksgiving holiday, so we didn't use the amenities as much as we normally would. However, we are familiar with the area and the house is in a very nice neighborhood near the bay and only a short drive to shopping, restaurants and the beaches. We used the bikes every day and we saw many other people biking and walking through the neighborhood. The owners were in good communication and provided clear directions.

Absolutely perfect.

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful house in a great location. Manatee watching every morning in the marina at the bottom of the road followed by the most amazing sunsets. My family and I couldn't have had a more perfect place to vacation and have made great memories to last a lifetime. The owners were great to deal with. Will definitely be coming back!!
