Bradenton Beach house description

Come to the Anna Maria Island Gulf-View Retreat to get away from it all! Enjoy the seclusion that Anna Maria Island provides. Spend the day on the beach, which is a simple 1-minute, 60-step walk from the back yard, or hang out fishing in one of the many great spots nearby or on the Gulf of Mexico. Enjoy the new swimming pool with a special sun shelf for toddlers or adults to sit on with Adirondack-style chairs and kick your feet in the water, nice tile siding and multiple sitting shelves. If you're in the mood to check out the rest of the island, catch the free trolley out the back door and it will take you to any of the beaches, restaurants, shops or grocery stores along Gulf Blvd anywhere on Anna Maria Island. Take the trolley one stop (or stroll along the beach the one mile) to the old historic Bridge Street area of Bradenton Beach to enjoy the Key West style restaurants and shops. If you enjoy painting or photography, the sunsets are among the best in the world. Temperate weather year round makes this location ideal for any season! The Gulf-View Retreat offers everything you need for your beach stay! Beach toys for the kids are available in our outdoor shed. Dishes, pots, pans, linens and towels are all provided - just bring your swimsuit and enjoy! The Gulf-View Retreat features the entire second floor level with a split plan with the master having it's own bathroom and on the other side two bedrooms sharing one bath. There is an additional pull out sofa in the family room. Granite countertops throughout the unit make luxury at your fingertips. Other amenities to perfect your stay include: Wireless Internet service, cable on the high definition flat screen TV, open decks, a new air conditioning unit and a third floor balcony make enjoying the sunsets an incredible experience.

The Gulf-View Retreat is the independent second floor of the home, while the first floor can be rented separately through the Pool-Side Retreat listing (http://www.vrbo.com/614098 or vrbo #614098). Both floors can be combined for family retreats or multiple family vacations if you contact us! There are some 'common' areas such as the pool, yard, fire-pit and 3rd story 'Crow's Nest' deck. However, each unit is a completely self-sustaining, independent unit with its own BBQ, patio furniture and entry ways. Contact us for a Reunion Retreat where you can rent both units including the entire house for special occasions.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2014

              About the owner: Growing up in Florida, I enjoyed the best of the beaches. It was always a special time to relax and enjoy the peace and quiet with family and friends. I had heard about the beaches south of where I grew up but did not experience them until I was an adult when I went to AMI with my family. We fell in love with the area. And since my husband is from Colorado, it gives him a great contrast to the mountains.

              Why the Owner Chose Bradenton Beach:
              When we first saw this property, we fell instantly in love with it. There is a warmth in this home and we hope you enjoy it as much as we do!

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              The proximity to the beach, the unobstructed Gulf views, the brand new swimming pool, the fire pit, and the closeness to the trolley stop made this the perfect property to enjoy all that the Anna Maria Island has to offer!
