Overview

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!

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.

Wonderful vacation home! Spacious seating areas, excellent kitchen to prepare meals in.

  • 5 of 5

We loved it here and did not want to leave! The pool and spa area was our favorite spot in the house for relaxing. The outside dining area is so nice and with the lights strung has a lovely ambiance for lingering around the table with good food and conversation. Just down the street we watched Manatees and lots of birds. Nice place to ride the bikes provided too. All in all, a wonderful place to stay! Thank you James and Regan.

Perfect Home! Lovely Owners!

  • 5 of 5

We are so glad we booked this home for our family vacation. We have booked several homes in the area over the years and none compare to this one. Very spacious, tastefully decorated, perfect location and well stocked. There is nothing worse than traveling all day and having to run out right away to buy toilet paper upon arrival (after spending a couple thousand dollars on a rental). I really felt like the owners were very in tune to what travelers (and especially families) want out of a vacation home rental. They were so much nicer to deal with than a rental management company. Thank you for an easy, comfortable stay.

Wonderful

  • 5 of 5

We loved everything about this home. A great location, close to beaches, attractions, Anna Marie Island and stores. More than comfortable for the two of us, plus plenty of space when family came to visit. The home was clean and relaxing, with nice outside entertainment and dining areas. The marina is a quick walk for manatee watching. James and Regan were reachable by text to respond to any questions. We would surely stay again. Thanks James and Regan!

Very Nice Bradenton Home

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I and friends stayed at Palma Sola Bay for a weeks vacation (March 2017). The house is very well appointed with everything we needed. The pool area is very nice and had plenty of room for everyone in our group, Very close drive (or bike ride) to the beaches and a 1 minute walk to Plama Sola Bay for manatees, pelicans diving for fish and great sunsets. James was a great host answering any questions we had and was extremely helpful.

The only slight negative would be the operation of the pool/spa. The temperatures were fine, but the pump is a bit loud and switching the heat back and forth between pool and spa is a bit inconvenient.

Otherwise we had a great stay and would definitely look into staying again in the future.

Thanks James and Regan

Perfect

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.

(Surfer bus has paddle boards and kayak rentals on location, coastal water sports AMI for jet skis - also check out Beach horses). From there it's only a short 7-minute drive across the bay to Anna Maria Island and the beautiful white sand beaches of the Gulf of Mexico! Have time for 18?
