Anna Maria Island is the First Barrier Island south of Tampa Bay. Bradenton Beach is at the south end of the Island. To the west, The Gulf of Mexico offers miles of spectacular, uninterrupted sugar sand beaches and emerald waters. To the east, Anna Maria Sound, a mangrove lined bay, has calm docking and mooring areas, a municipal pier, boat launches, nature trails and the Florida Intracoastal Waterway.

Bradenton Beach is just an hour's drive from Tampa International Airport. The Sarasota/Bradenton Airport is sixteen miles to the east. Interstate 75 is forty minutes away. Access from the mainland, to the east (Bradenton) is by bridges on Cortez Road W (Rte 684) or Manatee Avenue W (Rte 64). From the south (Longboat Key) via the bridge over Longboat Pass. The Island is seven miles long and only a few blocks wide, providing the sounds and feel of the water wherever you are.

The condo has been completely renovated - even some walls were moved. The floors in the bedrooms are carpeted, the rest is 18 inch Italian Terra Rosa porcelain tile. Panel doors, over-sized baseboards and trim, recessed lighting and faux wall finishes contribute to the British-Colonial inspired decor. Gulf View is located directly on the Gulf of Mexico, at the west end of Historic Bridge Street. it is an oasis - a quiet, peaceful, comfortable space where you can relax and rejuvenate.

The open-concept living-dining area has two bamboo framed upholstered love seats, swivel barrel chairs so you can enjoy the sunsets, an entertainment center stocked with books, board games and a 42' Hi-Definition TV and DVD player. There is a variable speed ceiling fan. Sliding glass doors open to a screened-in balcony, overlooking the beach, which provides Gulf breezes, the sound of the surf, spectacular views of the water and each evening a beautiful and unique sunset. Watch the diving pelicans and, if you are lucky, catch a glimpse of a dolphin.

The dining area has a rattan glass topped table with six chairs. There is a pass-thru bar to the kitchen. The chandelier has a dimmer switch - for your mood lighting.

The kitchen was gutted and reconfigured. The wall between the kitchen and the dining room was raised with a pass-thru bar. Short upper cabinets with see-thru glass on both sides were installed over the bar. All new cabinets, appliances and counter tops were installed throughout. There is an east facing window with a top-down, bottom-up pleated shade enabling you to get light from the top while otherwise having total privacy. The kitchen is gourmet equipped with dishes, flatware, pots, pans, bake-ware, utensils and small appliances. Whether you want a cup of coffee, freshly squeezed orange juice or a full gourmet meal, whatever you need is there!.

The master bedroom has direct access to the balcony. A Cafe Au Lait color wicker bedroom suite has a king-size bed with a premium mattress, dresser and two night stands. There is a 37' HD TV, a DVD Player, a large walk-in closet with custom organizers, a variable speed ceiling fan and an en-suite bath.

Since #101 is an end unit, the second bedroom does not have windows on the catwalk. There is complete privacy. A south facing, outside wall window has a room darkening, top-down bottom/up custom shade. Outfitted with a white wicker suite, two twins beds with premium mattresses, a night stand, chest of drawers and dresser. It is decorated with beautiful linens, has a variable-speed ceiling fan and a wall-to-wall organized closet. The tub/shower full bath is one step from the bedroom door.

Both bathrooms have adult height vanities, handicapped height toilets, full width/height mirrors, exhaust fans and recessed lighting. Each has all new fixtures and was decorated to co-ordinate with its adjacent bedroom. The vanities have ample room with drawers and under-sink storage.

The screened-in balcony, which is directly on the Gulf of Mexico, runs across the front of the condo.. It is furnished with a table and four chairs; two mesh, hi-back swivel rockers and a side table. There are two ceiling fans. You have an unparalleled view of the Gulf of Mexico and a front row seat for the nightly show at sunset.

There is an in-unit full sized washer and dryer. The unit has its own central air conditioner and furnace with thermostat that you can set to your comfort level. The keyless entry door has a separate all wood louvered screen door with a lock. You can enjoy cross ventilation with security and complete privacy. This is a secured building with a key-pad entry door. There are two assigned parking spots under the building. Free Wi-Fi.

Anna Maria Island provides a daily free trolley that runs every 20 minutes from 6:00 a.m. to 10:30 p.m. from the Anna Maria City Pier on the north to Coquina Beach on the south. Trolleys offer both air conditioned and open-air seating. The trolley stop is in front of the building.

A convenience grocery store is directly across the street. A Supermarket, (Publix), is about 7 minutes north - it is reachable by trolley as are most restaurants and shops on the island. You also have the option of ordering online and having your groceries delivered to your door. There are ten restaurants and two premium ice cream shops within a few blocks walk of the condo. No need for a car.

Beach chairs, umbrella, toys and rafts are provided. There is parasailing, jet-skiing, yoga on the beach and many other activities nearby. Get in the car and drive a short distance to golf, theaters, malls, botanic gardens, art galleries and more.

Third time ..simply amazing!

  • 5 of 5

This is our third stay here. Feels like going home. We love the peacefulness there. The sandy beach is wonderful and the water so crystal clear. The condo as always had everything you could want or need. I was amazed at the quality of the towels ...both beach towels and for bathing. Condo showed some wear and tear ...I think prior tenants must have been rough with their suitcases because the walls were pretty banged up but just like in any high priced hotel room.

The pizza Italian restaurant and the ice cream shop ..both across the street ... are both outstanding.

We hope to come back next summer again. Thanks Shirley for another great stay in your lively condo.

GulfView - Perfect Location - Perfect Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This was our 7th year staying in Shirley's unit and next year will be our 8th. The unit is kept in great shape and the upgrades over the years have made our stays very enjoyable. The exterior of the property is well maintained and the recent exterior paint job has added to the curb appeal. Our family looks forward to our annual June getaway to AMI and our GulfView home away from home.

Perfect location, wonderfully appointed condo!

  • 5 of 5

This is our second time staying at this property, and once again it did not disappoint! We love that we can come for a week and leave behind beach chairs, umbrella, or any typical kitchen gadgets we might need to cook ... this place has it all and in great condition! With covered parking too, which is rare. It seems like Bridge Street and this area of Brandenton Beach keeps adding more and better bars and restaurants, so we can walk everywhere from this location. Highly recommend the area, and especially this condo!

Shirley and her Condo unit are AWESOME !!

  • 5 of 5

Our group consisted of 12 women ages 54 - 80 and we loved everything about our week, location ( we are all Moose members and unit is right next door to Moose Club on beach ) Shirley helped us find other condo owners in building to rent from and we had a total of 3 with 4 girls in each unit 👍?😍?. The Condo was clean and well equipped with nice beach towels, soft sheets for sunburn skin, comfy beds , nice kitchen, BEAUTIFUL lanai porch with the most perfect view of the Gulf of Mexico and sunsets ! We planned our trip 1 1/2 years ago and Shirley was a joy to work with and extremely organized There is a noise ordinance on island so after 10:00 the place is as quiet as needed , the building is more soundproof than any place I have ever stayed and the music and people and Moose Club are FUN ! We all absolutely LOVED it there The Circle K is directly across street and you can get online and order groceries from Publix and super nice people deliver them right to the Condo! We had no vehicles so it was great We walked the Coquina Beach shaded path for exercise and shopping at the beach market on Wednesday’s and Sunday’s and caught the trolley north very near the Condo I hope we can return every year !!!

Noisy Neighbors

  • 3 of 5

The property was very clean and in good condition. The view was amazing. The problem is with the Moose Lodge next door. This unit is directly next to the lodge and they start cleaning/prepping early in the morning. There is a window in the second b/r facing their garbage can area/parking lot. Once the lodge opens, its non stop loud speaker calling out orders to be picked up. Some nights the crowds get very noisy.

Owner's Response: I am so sorry for the problem you had with the Moose Lodge. I have lodged a complaint to see if something can be done. I thank you for your comment about the cleanliness and good condition of the condo itself and hope you enjoyed your stay otherwise. Thanks for your input.
