Thank you for considering my home which has been recently updated to provide the warmth and feel of a true beach cottage. Wooden ceiling planks have been added along with pine beach chic cabinets and decor. I put many hours into the design of the home to provide a feeling of tropical relaxation. The location of the duplex home is within walking distance to the beach but tucked away from the hustle and bustle of beach traffic and other vacationers.
The home sits between the gulf beaches and the bay, but is truly in the middle of everything Anna Maria Island has to offer. Free Trolley rides (every 20 minutes) allow easy travel through out the island to restaurants/bars and historic sights. Located in the city of Bradenton Beach, which has a smaller more private beach in comparison to others nearby. We are also within walking distance to the bay which offers a baseball and basketball court, playground, and a small area to launch canoes or kayaks.
The elevated property has been lovingly restored in 2013, boasting a full kitchen with standard size stainless steel appliances and granite counter tops. There are flat-screen TVs in every room, Blu Ray/DVD player, and free wireless high-speed internet access throughout the house.
The master bedroom has a memory foam queen bed and an en-suite bathroom. The second bedroom has two twin beds that can be converted into a king bed, and is off the living/dining area with private access to the second shared bathroom. The family room area has a sleeper sofa that can easily provide sleeping accommodations for 2 additional guests.
Central Heat and AC, BBQ Grill, Washer/Dryer, LCD Flat Screen TV's, Cable TV, Blue Ray/DVD Players, Microwave, Blender, Toaster, Full Kitchen, Linens and Towels provided. Housekeeping provided upon request (additional fee). This property will accommodate up to 6 adults and has onsite parking for multiple vehicles, RVs or boats.

Why the Owner Chose Private Homes: It's off the beaten path, literally tucked away between the gulf and bay. Plus, it was a home that needed a complete renovation. I love home improvement projects and interior design is a passion of mine. This property gave me the opportunity to wipe the slate clean and create exactly the beach house I wanted.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage: There is a beach trolley stop within a short distance of my place, making it easy to roam across the island without much effort. Plus there is a small private park one street over and on the bay which is nice for my son to play with his nephews. Of course, walking to the beach is wonderful as well.
Upon entering, you walk into the open living space which includes the kitchen, dining and family rooms. Pine vaulted ceilings and recessed lighting provide an inviting feel. The doorway shown on the left enters into the half bath. The door to the right accesses the second bedroom which also has a private entry to the half bath.
The full kitchen works nicely for cooking and baking, as well as entertaining. I love to bake pies and cupcakes. Feel free to use the bakeware for your own creations.
I wanted to provide some pictures to better reveal the layout of the property. The master bedroom can be accessed directly thru the family area.
The spare bedroom holds two twin beds and a 24 inch flatscreen TV, great for watching TV in bed or video games.
The master bath has a granite counter top, farm sink and upgraded fixtures. The tub/shower combo also has upgraded fixtures.

Just Another Day in Paradise! Just a short walk to white sandy beaches.
The kitchen has brand new stainless Frigidaire gallery appliances, shabby chic cabinets and granite countertops.
The family room is designed to be warm and inviting with light colors, feather pillows and soft fabrics. The 40 inch flat screen TV is swivel mounted and can be seen comfortably while in the kitchen or dining area. The couch is also a sleeper sofa, making a comfortable space for two additional guests.
