Bradenton Beach condo description

Our new ground floor single story (NO STAIRS) condo (1 queen bed, 1 full sleeper couch,) is a very charming and cozy beach condo!. You may not find another spot so close to the beach & bay yet so peaceful & with such ambiance. It is in a peaceful private compound steps from bay & beach. Nothing soothes like the smell the salt from the sea & sound of the waves, the palms, the sea birds, etc. You are almost certain to see Dolphins from our dock or beach! If you like to fish this is fishing heaven!
You will have a private parking spot right outside this home.
You have your own storage unit with fishing gear, chairs and umbrella.
There's a paved trail across street that leads to Coquina Beach. If you go all the way to the end you can loop under bridge & find Coquina Bay Walk Preserve. Here you will enjoy the most breathtaking nature views in FL! Walk the long boardwalks that encompass the Bay. You can loop back to the Coquina Cafe for a cold drink & delicious Hamburger or their great grilled chicken sandwich.
This property has had a recent makeover. Entire home has Italian porcelain floors in every room! Rate includes unlimited calling anywhere in USA and Canada, Wi-Fi, Digital cable, 2 Plasma TV's with DVD in Living room and Master bedroom. Everything will be like new! If you like fishing, we have a dock just about 40 steps away too. If you like going for walks, there is a marvelous paved trail across our street that goes for about a 1.5 miles or so along the beach. The trail is covered by weeping pines and is simply breathtaking. You will be hard pressed to find a location that is so beautiful and peaceful with such spectacular scenery. You will enjoy a wide variety of restaurants all within walking distance including our favorites on the historic Bridge St Pier. Watch for dolphins and Manatee while dining! Our low intro sale rates will never be lower! Rates will be going up soon and we are booking fast, act now and save.

For the health conscious, we have installed a $3000 water filtration system. Unlike other vacation rentals on the island that use public water which is heavily treated with CHLORINE and other chemicals our filtration system filters all this out. So, when you bathe, cook or, drink, know that you have the purest and only chemical free water on the island! Not only is this healthier in every regard but, women will notice that their hair is fuller and skin is softer after washing as their are no chemicals to make the hair limp or to dry out skin!

This is a brand new listing and we don't have any reviews yet. Therefore, I have listed a sample of reviews from our guests who have stayed at our vacation home, next door, which is very similar to this home.

Arrived at the condo and we both agreed, it was spotlessly clean and very tastefully furnished, not like some of the other 'sterile' villas we have stayed in. The owners have supplied all the equipment you can ever need for your vacation, fishing rods, wi-fi, beach chairs, cool bag etc. The list is endless.....

Only a hop, skip and jump over to the main beach on the Gulf and the same again to the small dock on Tampa Bay. The condo is situated in the ideal position on AMI as it's only a short walk from all the facilities, bars, restaurants and shops.
We tended to eat at 'Rotten Ralphs' on the pier by the Cortez Bridge, all you can eat fish and chips for $10, a bargain!

All in all a great vacation and HIGHLY recommended.
Owner's Response: Hi Nick,

Thanks for your 5 STAR review. It is appreciated. We look forward to your return visit. We only know one way to rent a vacation home, that's to make sure it is spotless, with all the best amenities, in the best location and, at the best rate. If we achieve these 4 things we know we are going to attract great guests just like you! A review like this is what we strive for!

This condo was fantastic! It had everything we needed,and was very clean. There was plenty of room for our family. With the enclosed lanai; each of our teenage boys were pleased to have their own sleeping spaces. I look forward to coming back here again in the future!

Great vacation; lovely beach condo

Needed a weekend getaway, and this beach condo was absolutely home away from home. Everything was clean, clean, clean. Quiet neighborhood and steps from the most beautiful water and white sandy beach. The full kitchen was stocked with everything anyone would need: pots, pans, utensils, coffee maker, microwave, oven - and Publix is just 2 miles north down the beach. The bed was very firm and comfortable; my son slept on the fold out couch, and said he slept well. And when we asked to extend our vacation by one more day, the owners got back to us pronto with a very reasonable offer. Thank you, Mark and Lily for making this such a lovely experience. We will be back.
Owner's Response: Thanks for the nice review. We look forward to your return!

OMG this is the best vacation rental we have ever stayed at!

Rarely do we find that a vacation rental was good as advertised. This one was better than advertised! Everything is clean as a whistle! We are neat freeks so this means a lot to us! You can tel that the owners really thought of every minute detail. It was tastefully appointed. Very bright and cheerful. The Master bed is huge. Seems bigger than a normal king. We never slept better. Our two adult kids said the sleep futon on Lanai and the big sleep sofa in Living room was also very comfortable. Lanai really makes a great place to sleep with all the big sliding windows. Always seems to be a cool breeze at night. We never used the A/C! We especially loved the close proximatey to all the best activities on the island. we could walk to everything. I would never want to stay on any other part of the island. We almost never needed our car. We loved the use of the bikes to visit Cocquina Beach and the really special Nature preserve. We took the free trolley all over the island. We were impressed that it picked us up right on our street corner. Another free trolley brought is all the way to sarasota where we made several stops along the way including the Mote aquarium, to downtown Sarasota, with stops on Longboat Key and St. Armand’s Circle. Daily service runs from 6 a.m. to 11 p.m. every 30 minutes. Every 15 minutes if you are staying on the island. My husband LOVED the fishing from the bridge st pier. I forget the names of fish he caught but one weighed 13.9 lbs and was a great meal one night for the entire family. He cleaned and barbecued the fish on the gas grill that comes with the property. Nothing like eating a fish as fresh as this! There is a bait shop right on the pier and the person was helpful in guiding us on what bait was best. We didn't have to rent fishing equip because it came with the unit too! Like I said, the owners really thought of everything! I am running out of space otherwise I would mention many other pluses about this vacation rental. I can't forget to mention how helpful the owner was in making the rental process so easy. We had questions which he was so helpful and prompt to answer. We actually overpaid and without asking or even realizing it he reimbursed us! Rare these days to find someone so accomodating and honest. We have already reserved our next vacation and look forward to calling this place in paradise our new regular!
