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. We can help.
+ 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.
NOTE: Our rental weeks typically run Saturday to Saturday.
PS WE ALSO HAVE CONNECTION TO AFFORDABLE KAYAKS AND BIKES FOR RENT....JUST ASK!

- We are located near the south bridge to the island.

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....moreless

Wonderful and Relaxing!
Wonderful and Relaxing!
Nine of us enjoyed a very relaxing week at this home. We had fantastic weather and spent hours lounging out back, playing in the pool, welcoming nature, fishing and watching boats pass by in the bay. We saw dolphins on several occasions and even saw a manatee very close to the dock! Being in a residential area, it was very quiet and Bradenton Beach is not commercialized like most of the beaches we visit. When we weren’t hanging out by the pool, we walked the couple blocks to the beach and enjoyed the Gulf of Mexico. The beach was never crowded. We fit very comfortably in this home. It was well equipped with everything we needed – 3 ½ baths, nice to have three king size bedrooms, plenty of seating in the livingroom, linens. One night we ordered pizza from Oma’s Pizza and Italian Restaurant but other than that we frequented the fish market on 119th Street in Cortez and made our own meals. The kitchen was well stocked and we used the grill a lot. The owner and his son were extremely kind and helpful - before and during our stay. They spent lots of time answering my many questions to ensure their home would be a good fit for us. It was very apparent they wanted to ensure we would enjoy our stay...and we absolutely did!

A Perfect Vacation
A Perfect Vacation
This lovely, very clean home was where we spent the most relaxing vacation we've had in years. We woke every morning to beautiful sunrises, then hit the private beach three blocks away. Afternoons were spent hanging in the pool, which overlooked the bay, and evenings were spent fishing off the dock. We caught loads of fish--snapper, flounder, mackerel. Tons of fun for everyone! Everything we needed was on hand, the location was ideal, and the owner was very hospitable. The pictures truly don't do it justice. Thank you for wonderful memories!

Beautiful Boating Estate on ICW, perfect for large families!
Beautiful Boating Estate on ICW, perfect for large families!
The location of this beautiful home is one of the best on the island! We were very close to some of our favorite restaurants and shops and the trolley stopped very close to the house. We enjoyed watching dolphins playing right in front of the dock where we kept our boat. The children enjoyed swimming in the pool and really enjoyed the uncrowded private beach which is a very short walk away. Extremely clean home with beautiful views of the water in many rooms. It is a wonderful place to reconnect with loved ones. Grounds are beautiful and well kept, truly a remarkable home!

Best Island Location for sure!
Best Island Location for sure!
Our first impression of the home was "spectacular". The pictures and description are accurate but nothing can describe how wonderful this home is without experiencing it yourself. The feeling you get when you settle in with your favorite drink to watch the view on your private deck overlooking the pool and bay as the boats go by is nothing short of paradise. The home had space to spare, is clean, comfortable and well stocked. The pool temperature was refreshing after a day in the sun but warm enough to go in at night. There are homes are both sides but we felt like we had the island to ourselves with the privacy landscaping. The barbeque was very easy to use and well maintained and we put it to good use. The kitchen has top of the line everything and we loved stocking the huge fridge and making dinners at night. The dishwasher is so quiet you can barely tell it's running and it was really nice to have 2 sinks in the kitchen. The sunsets at the beach only 3 blocks away were awesome and well worth the after dinner walk. The suite upstairs with the deck is a great way to wake up and have coffee as the sun rises on the water. It was convenient to have the washer/dryer upstairs to clean our "fishy" clothes. The location couldn't be better for boaters; between the Cortez and Manatee bridges so you can go either direction to fish. So much better than the homes we rented in the past on small canals where we had to spend so much time getting out to the bay. Annie's bait is on the left, just before the Cortez bridge (to the right of the home) and sells gas, snacks, drinks and bait and is easy to get a boat into and just across from it and past the same bridge is Bradenton Beach Marina which also sells gas. We rented a boat from Just4Fun rentals and they delivered and picked it up right from out dock and were readily available if we had any needs or questions. We caught lots of fish too. I was hesitant to rent a home without a screen enclosure in Florida because of bugs, but with the constant breeze there was never a problem and no screen meant no obstruction to our view. The owner was easy to work with and it is obvious he takes pride in his home by the way it is maintained. It is the nicest home on the block. We did try the Beach House restaurant (owner recommendation) for lunch and were pleasantly suprised by how good the food was and the view was amazing. Don't hesitate to rent this house. You'll love it as much as we did.

This home was an excellent choice. The home was very spacious and comfortable. The view was breathtakingly beautiful, and we would return again. We really didn't have to leave the house for anything except groceries. Everything we needed for a complete and wonderful vaction was there.

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.
