Located less than three miles from Anna Maria Island in Bradenton, Florida, this two-bedroom vacation rental is aptly named. With an incredible view of Palma Sola Bay, at Bayview Retreat you will feel as if you were on a retreat with all of the conveniences of home in a peaceful and tropical waterside setting.
Inside this elderly- and family-friendly rental you will find a gourmet kitchen in an open floor plan that includes a 52-inch flat screen television, a DVD player and wireless internet access. Along with a spectacular view of the pool and bay, the main bedroom offers a king bed and private bath, while the second bedroom is equipped with two twin beds and has its own access to the pool and spa. In the living room you will find a queen sofa bed providing ample space to comfortably sleep six.
When not enjoying your day relaxing in the heated pool or spa, or hanging at the private dock looking for manatees and dolphins, just head to AMI to enjoy all it has to offer, including unique shops, local mom-and-pop restaurants and the Gulf of Mexico beaches! If it's nature you love, Bayview Retreat is very close to a few of the area's wildlife preserves, including Neal Preserve and Robinson Preserve. It is also very close to the area's only pet-friendly beach -- Palma Sola Causeway Park -- making it a perfect rental for the pet lover!

This was our second year at Bayview Retreat, and it was as wonderful as last year's stay. The house was immaculate when we arrived and all the amenities one could need were there. We loved the "show" the exotic birds put on every afternoon and watching the fishermen casting their nets in Palma Sola Bay. Handy location with a Publix just a 8/10th of a mile down Manatee Avenue, and Anna Marie Island very accessible. We loved the pool and the views from our beach chairs. Going thru Palma Sola withdrawal now. Cannot wait to return.
House was much nicer than the pictures portray. Very relaxing, private, warm pool. Lots to do nearby. Had the best time ever there :)
The pictures are exact. Wonderful warm pool and the view is simply amazing. Lots of wildlife! Everything was just as described. Being so close to AMI was perfect but honestly you didn't even need to leave this spot. Very quiet neighborhood. The kitchen is fabulous!
We had a wonderful time in this house, the view was breathtaking, every minute it changed.
I loved to see the sun come up every day, I think I have over 1000 pictures!
The fish were jumping out of the water, and the dolphins game close to the dock, Wauw, that was such a amazing experience.
Beaches are a 5 minute drive away and there is so much to do in Bradenton.
The house has everything you need.
We hope to come back soon!
Beach, fun and sun!
This family- and pet-friendly vacation rental is located just off Florida's Anna Maria Island, a quaint barrier island nestled in the Gulf of Mexico south of Tampa Bay. Comprised of three cities—Anna Maria on the north end, Holmes Beach in the middle and Bradenton Beach to the south—AMI is one of the only places where the 'old Florida' charm still exists. The Island has every convenience needed, including multiple award-winning restaurants, including Beach Bistro, Sandbar Restaurant, Sign of the Mermaid, and Waterfront Restaurant. There is also plenty of shopping available along historic Pine Avenue in Anna Maria and Bradenton Beach's historic Bridge Street. With the beach and the Bay just minutes away from your front door, there is plenty to do in the water. Kayaking, snorkeling, fishing, jet skiing, and parasailing are the more popular activities. With the Island only seven miles long, there is no need to drive when almost everything is within walking or biking distance. Plus, there is a free trolley service that runs the length of the Island every day. AMI truly has something for everyone, and everyone who visits falls in love with it. We are sure you will too! So, reserve your vacation home today . . . seven miles of pristine white beaches and beautiful sunsets await you!
