Bradenton Beach condo description
This beautiful gulf to bay condo sits on a tiny slip of land on the south end of Anna Maria Island. The small private complex offers a heated pool, private boat slips and fishing pier, and is just across the street from the beautiful Gulf of Mexico beach. The bright and cheerful end unit allows for windows in every room. Enjoy expansive water views of both the gulf and the bay from this open floor plan home. Start your day on the back lanai watching the sunrise over Sarasota Bay. Walk down to the dock to fish or just watch the birds, boats, and an occasional manatee or dolphin. Lounge in our heated pool or spend the day on the white sandy beach. Take a walk down to the Coquina Bay Walk nature preserve at Leffis Key, or stroll up to Bridge Street for some shopping. Hop on the free island trolley and explore the island. Maybe check out the Historic Anna Maria City Pier and Park or shop Anna Maria. Our well equipped kitchen allows for a great eat-in evening. Maybe out on the back lanai which is large enough to hold a dining table plus lounge chairs. Both lanais have glass sliders on the outside screens which can be closed to keep the wind and rain out, or opened for a screened porch feel. Perhaps end your day with a drink on the front lanai watching a stunning gulf sunset. Lots of room to relax and spread out with three full bedrooms and two baths plus two separate lanais.
There are TVs in each bedroom with DVD and flat screen TV in the living area and a flat screen in the master. Plus free high speed wireless internet and free local and long distance calling to the US, Canada and Puerto Rico. There is a king bed in the master with attached bath and two single beds in each of the other bedrooms.
The area affords tremendous opportunities for relaxation on old Florida style Anna Maria Island, with an outstanding natural setting and plenty of local shops, galleries and restaurants. Opportunities abound for boat and fishing excursions. Or biking, wave running, surfing, sailing, tennis and golf nearby.... Within walking distance is a library, shops, restaurants, a large park and playground, a boat ramp and a nature preserve. The free island trolley is just steps from the door, as is the beach. The dock has a fishing pier in addition to docks for boats up to 30 feet. And the pool is heated. The area is wonderful for biking and exploring. There's no need to ever leave the island but we are very close to Sarasota's many theaters, museums, outstanding restaurants, shopping and activities. Just south is the bridge to Longboat Key and the many shops and restaurants of St. Armands Circle. If you want to go further, Tampa is just an hour away with national sports teams and other larger city attractions. And it's a short two hour drive to Orlando's theme park attractions. The beautiful natural and accessible location allows you to never get in a car, and spend all your time right here on the island; or quickly get off the island and explore the greater area with quick access to two bridges.
Fly in to Sarasota-Bradenton, or Tampa International.

This was a fabulous vacation! We'd been to the area several times before when my parents had lived in Brandenton for 15 years, so knew exactly where this condo was located. With this Coquina Moorings condo you get the best of both worlds - located just north of a nature park and with water views from 2 sides it was relaxing, quiet and beautiful - it is also located very close to the Bridge Street tourist area, and also one of the most popular beaches on the island, so lots of activity and fun is literally minutes away. The private, enclosed parking made life easier, as did the private, enclosed pool area. Everything, and I mean everything, was very clean, and well maintained, both inside the condo and out. I had a good idea of what the condo would look like from the pictures, but was blown away when we actually walked in. It was bigger, brighter, and prettier than I had been expecting! It was very obvious that the owner had put much thought in to what would enhance a renter's vacation stay. Anything that we could think of that we might need was already provided; all we had to do was buy food and unpack our clothes! At the beginning of our stay the master bedroom door handle fell off, and we also had problems with the front door lock (though we were still able to lock the door with the 2 deadbolts). As soon as the holiday weekend was passed we called the leasing agents, and they had a handyman out the next day to fix both items. The quick response was much appreciated, and we did not need to stay in the condo for the repairs, the handyman had his own key, and left a note for us. A few of the bests: Key Lime Pie - Starfish in Cortez Fishing Village, just over the Cortez Bridge. They also had fantastic, that-day-fresh fish! Dinner - Boat Tender Inn, at the east end of Bridge Street Lunch - Village Cafe on the far north end of the island, also nice shopping in the area Also try - Divine Caffe' located in the Health Food store in the CVS shopping plaza, really good lemon bars, teas and salads We did the 2 hour cruise with You Only Live Once (YOLO), We saw birds, dolphins and manatees in the wild, then went to an out-of-the way sandbar, got out into knee high water and searched for sand dollars. The captain/guide was very friendly and informative. Great Experience! We enjoyed the mini golf on Bridge Street, but the one in on Hwy 41 in Sarasota was much better! We also enjoyed Joe's Ice Cream. This vacation exceeded all expectations!

Manager response: We are always so pleased to hear that our place is as enjoyable to our guests as it is to us! It's also nice when our guests share their favorite restaurants and activities for us to try! I'm happy to hear that our local agent was prompt, as always, in getting small issues resolved quickly and painlessly, as it's important to us that our guests have on-island help and support during their stay.
Beautiful Condo With AMAZING Views!!!
Beautiful Condo With AMAZING Views!!!
My family and I loved our stay in this spacious condo. The location is so nice with great water views everywhere you look. It's just steps from the Bay and the Gulf. We really liked being able to see both from all the main rooms. The boat dock was a great plus too. My son spent hours fishing from it. The unit was clean, comfortable and nicely decorated. Everything we needed was provided and the kitchen is very well equipped too. We loved riding our bikes along the Gulf on the flat, paved and shady paths. I love how the water in the Gulf is so clear. Beautiful. We usually walked to restaurants for dinner. (Be sure to check out Oma's Pizza.) We also had dinner one night outside...right on the beach at the Beach House Restaurant. Very nice! The kids loved the beach and the heated pool at the condo. They also went parasailing with the YOLO outfit. We hired Captain Kim for a sightseeing tour of the bay that was great too. She picked us up right at this Condo's dock. We can't wait to go back to this beach! When we do we will definitely seek out this condo again!

About: Elisabeth grew up in Chicago and John grew up in Florida where they met. We have lived in several states due to work. We love to to travel all over with our children but feel truly relaxed here on Anna Maria's gulf beaches. We have always hoped we would someday have a place in the area. We fell in love with Anna Maria Island when we visited several years ago, because of its comfortable, unique old Florida feel, great location, beautiful natural environment and wonderful weather. We enjoy spending time here with family and friends any time we can get away.
Why Bradenton Beach:
We felt so fortunate to find this amazing and very unique location with expansive views of both the gulf and bay from inside our unit! The white sandy beach is beautiful and the natural area surrounding our place is truly amazing. We were looking for 'old Florida' charm and Anna Maria Island has just that. The area is truly a neighborhood with primarily houses and shops. All buildings are less than three stories which makes it feel like a real neighborhood. We are close to Sarasota and Tampa and just two hours from Orlando for day trips. There is much to do without getting into a car, and a free island trolley right outside our door. Plus, if we want to go anywhere off the island, we are very close to bridges, with many places to visit. Just south of us is the bridge to Longboat Key and all the shops and restaurants of St. Armands Circle. The unit is perfect for our family. Because it is an end unit there are plenty of windows, on three sides, making it bright and comfortable,with space to spread out. Everything we need is there and we always feel right at home the minute we walk in the door. It is truly easy living.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
A cup of coffee watching the sunrise over the bay is a first morning must. Never the same and always beautiful. End the day with a drink and sunset on the front lanai and you know you are in paradise. Our white sandy beaches are beautiful and there's a surf break right at our beach during the right time of year. We have on many occasions seen dolphins on the gulf and a manatee or two in the bay while spending a lazy morning fishing off our dock/pier. We enjoy walks in the Coquina Bay Walk just to our south or walking up to Bridge Street for their Sunday morning outdoor market. We also enjoy boat tours on the bay...it's great to see the area from the water. The free trolley stops right outside our building and will take you the whole length of the island, up to Anna Maria City Pier or other locations on the island. There is plenty to go do if we are in the mood, but it is also a wonderful place to just unwind and hang out. Everything is extremely convenient, from the dedicated parking spot right at our stairway, to the separate back door that leads to the pool and dock area. Our lanais have glass sliders on the outside to keep these areas weather controlled...they can be opened up for a screened porch feel, or closed to keep rain and wind out. This increases our living area as they are 'all weather' rooms.
