              Car: Recommended

              Locate at the southern tip of Tampa Bay and is accessible by bridge from the city of Bradenton, Florida. It is one hour from Tampa and less than thirty minutes to Sarasota, twenty minutes to Longboat Key and St. Armands Circle, a great island shopping point. St. Armands Circle provides a bit of heaven to the shopaholic, great restaurants to the food-aholic, and quaint areas to people watch with a glass of wine or sangria from the famous Columbia restaurant. Sarasota is the home of the Ringling Museum of Fine Arts and John Ringling's home, which is open to the public. Wenzel Music Hall offers an array of concerts by musical artists and groups from all over the world. Arboretum, former home of , offers a paradise to botanical lovers. Scuba dive to a sunken ship, charter a fishing boat for the day, walk on the silky white sands, or rent a bicycle to tour the six mile island. When in season, the Ringling Circus School is a must for the young and old alike. Anna Maria is the old Florida...quiet and laid back...St. Armands is the place to shop and be seen, Sarasota is haven for the arts, restaurants, and its hospitals and medical facilities are excellent. There are four major league baseball teams that are in the area for spring training....Pittsburgh Pirates in Bradenton, Philadelphia Phillies in Clearwatrer, New York Yankess in Tampa/St. Petersburg, and in Sarasota.


              Manager info

              Year Purchased: 2008

              About: Coco-Nuts is owned by an eighth generation Floridian, who has always had a house on Florida's waters...and who prefers the Gulf Beaches and the quaint, quiet beaches of Anna Maria.

              Why Anna Maria:
              This property was built and owned by a famous local sports commentator, who did many of his sports fishing news off the local Rod & Reel Pier. Its unique design is probably influenced by his son, who is a well-known Tampa architect. It is a corner lot and the beach access and beach is just across the road.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              Since the owner also uses this property as often as time allows, Coco-nuts is constantly being up graded and maintained. Hurricane impact windows have been installed and appliances such as TVs, refrigerators, dishwashers, stoves are the newer models. Ceiling fans are throughout the house. Both a gas grill and charcoal grill are provided on the back patio.
