Bradenton Beach house description

This home provides you with your own private waterfront estate. It has virtually EVERYTHING you need for a perfect Island vacation. The home with private pool looks out on Anna Maria Sound to the north and Sarasota Bay to the south. Sit and watch the big yachts and boats pass by on the inter-coastal waterway.

This part of Anna Maria Island is less than THREE BLOCKS WIDE ---(SEE PHOTO #15)--- a hop-skip to our pristine Gulf of Mexico beach - NOT a big public beach with parking and crowds but a neighborhood beach with direct-access for YOU! ---(SEE PHOTO #16)


Your vacation will include;

+ On the water living with private boat dock tie.

+ Beautiful pool in private setting overlooking the bay.

+ Open floor plan - living areas and kitchen enjoying beautiful water views.

+ TVs in all bedrooms and living room too. Free movies and TV series available on cable and Netflix.

+ Heavy foliage on all sides of the property give you privacy and beauty.

+ Bay-To-Beach property located next to the island's best 'local's' beach.

+ Short walking distance to great waterfront cafe's and restaurants. Leave the car parked.

+ Bikes, kayaks and power boats are available on the island for rent.....free delivery/pick-up to the property!

+ Beautiful sunrises over the water...... helps you start your day out right!

+ Fishing right off your own dock...we even have a dock light gathering fish and other cool sea creatures at night for you to see.

+ Our 'nature theater' out front of our house has a big grass flat (at very low tide.) AMI is a nature sanctuary in-total and nature dines right in our front yard....you see most of the AMI birds at one time of another on this flat - you will no doubt see dolphins feeding out there too during your stay with us.

+ Free Trolley stops on Gulf drive one block from the street to our home - great family fun and you can leave the car behind!

Regarding your waterfont estate, the living areas and most bedrooms are on ground level (not on stilts with all those stairs to climb!) which makes us unique from all the other rentals.....and it sits at the water's edge. Family and guests can sit on the pool patio or at the dinning table and look out over an ever-changing scene of tides on the bay.....AGAIN, with very little luck you will see dolphins, egrets, heron, cormorant, ibis, and even white pelicans!

WE ALSO HAVE MANY ADDITIONAL PHOTOS IF YOU WANT ME TO SEND THEM TO YOU!!!!!

Thanks for looking! Email me or call and I'll get more info or photos to you asap.

PS WE ALSO HAVE CONNECTION TO AFFORDABLE KAYAKS AND BIKES FOR RENT....FREE DELIVERY & PICK UP.....JUST ASK!

                  Location

                  We are located near the south bridge to the island. This makes our location the best as there are many options for fun right here including walking to our very own Bradenton Beach Village and Boardwalk with restaurants, shops and even a putt-putt golf course. There are also restaurants and cafes on the beach we walk to including The Beach House and Cafe On the Beach...and the famous City Beach Cafe (local favorite).

                  Best of all, IF YOU DON'T WANT TO WALK TOO FAR, you can just head out your back door and catch Anna Maria Island's FREE TROLLEY that runs every 20 minutes. It will take you to most everywhere north or south on the island. You can also transfer to another Trolley at the south end of the island and continue to Long Boat Key, St. Armand’s Circle and end up in downtown Sarasota where there are many attractions, theatre, shopping and great restaurants to explore. There is so much you can do on your vacation or just hang out and relax....you're the boss.

                   

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 1993

                  About the owner: We have been coming to SW Florida for over 40 years with our family...'snowbirds' escaping the cold weather of Minneapolis Minnesota to enjoy the warm waters and white sandy beaches of this beautiful part of the world. We have owned property from Sanibel Island to Siesta Key and found our favorite Anna Maria Island about 16 years ago. I live here year round and always enjoy having my family (adult children and the grandkids) and friends visit......they love it too because it is special here and I know you will agree. My son in Seattle is helping me with this rental - give him a call....thanks! Thanks for your consideration! IMPORTANT NOTE: WE ARE MOST DISCERNING WITH THE TENANTS WE RENT TO. WE ARE IN A RESIDENTIAL NEIGHBORHOOD AND RESPECT THE PEACE AND QUIET WE AND OUR NEIGHBORS ENJOY. PLEASE INQUIRE ACCORDINGLY. Also, we have enjoyed 'trading' our property with others who have wonderful places they want to share in return. These trades are mostly done simultaneously. Please don't hesitate to call if you think your property would be of interest.

                  Why the Owner Chose Bradenton Beach:
                  IF YOU ARE JUST LEARNING ABOUT ANNA MARIA ISLAND....YOU'VE COME TO THE RIGHT PLACE! Anna Maria Island is very unique in all of Florida - absolutely non-commercial, no high-rise buildings, many miles of clean friendly beaches, warm seas, and lots of sun! AND no fast food chains but lots of local restaurants serving fresh grouper or crab, laid-back atmosphere...kick back and enjoy!

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  This home has it all....waterfront, pool, place for your boat, privacy from beach combers, steps to beach, walk to restaurants.....everything you want in a vacation is here.
