Perico Island condo description

From the moment you step into this bright and spacious lakefront property, you will be awestruck by its panoramic water views! This 2 bedroom/2 bath second floor end unit is located in Perico Island, a pristine condominium and villa community located between 'mainland' Bradenton and Anna Maria Island - just minutes to fabulous Gulf of Mexico beaches, close to restaurants, shopping, golf, sightseeing and adjacent to the Robinson Nature Preserve and Perico Bayou.

From the spacious and comfortable Living Room, with ceiling to floor windows, you can enjoy watching water fowl, exotic birds, and turtles. You might even spot an occasional river otter splashing around in the water. You can kick back and enjoy one of three wide screen HDTVs (1 plasma) or power up your laptop and surf the Web at the computer desk, from an easy chair or from the pool area or clubhouse across the lagoon!


About Perico Island - the Area: Perico Island is an area of small connected islands between 'mainland' Bradenton (2 mi.) and Anna Maria Island (2 mi.), FL. The beautiful Gulf of Mexico white-sand beaches are to the west (2.5 miles); Palma Sola Bay, with picnic facilities all along the 2 mile causeway, is to the east; Perico Bayou is to the north separated from the Manatee River by the 487-acre Robinson Nature Preserve. From the 53 foot observation tower, you can view the entire Preserve, the Sunshine Skyway Bridge, the Gulf of Mexico, Tampa Bay and even Tropicana Bowl !

About Perico Island - the Community : Our community, simply named 'Perico Island,' is comprised of condominiums, villas and private homes. (Not to be confused with Perico Bay Club, a larger condo/villa complex on the south side of Manatee Ave. (SR64).) The condominium complex, named 'Palm Villas', consists of six buildings, each with 7 units. Our unit is on the second floor and faces west, overlooking a picturesque lagoon. Immediately across the lagoon and a short walk from our unit is the Clubhouse, pool area, fitness center and tennis courts.

Perico Island is on the north side of Manatee Ave. - a very busy road during high season - which is the same side of the road as the Robinson Preserve (a 5 min. walk) and the safest side to ride a bike or walk to/from Anna Maria Island or to/from Palma Sola Bay area. (The only sidewalk that goes the entire 2 mi. distance in each direction is on the north side of the road.)

Recent improvements to the unit: All new appliances (see listing for specifics), tiled throughout, new living room furnishings.

Just to the west of our complex are two newly opened nature preserves - the Perico and Neal Preserves.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2008

                  About the owner: Getting 'up close and personal' with a very tall flamingo at Sarasota Jungle Garden.

                  Why the Owner Chose Perico Island:
                  I purchased this property mainly for the view. When I retire down the road, I want something nice to look at!

                  The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                  The ceiling to floor windows in the living room make you feel as though you are literally on top of the water. It's wonderful! When it's calm, you can see the reflection of the sky and palm trees in the water. Another important feature -- the ideal location. Close enough to shopping (2 miles either way) but not right in the middle of it. Close enough to Anna Maria Island and the beaches to bike there and not have to deal with traffic. The Palm Sola causeway is another gem. Nice walk, good fishing, and there are picnic tables and grills. You can also find horses there to rent and ride into the water on them! It's also the only beach where people can bring their (leashed) dogs.
