Awesome new-to-rental- market waterfront home! All new furnishings, awesome lanai, heated pool and neighborhood!
New heated pool completed November 2017! There is also a new 6' vinyl fence on three sides. My boat is on the lift but there is plenty of dock to tie / float yours!
Our home was newly furnished in December of 2017! It is about a 5 minute drive to Bradenton Beach - roughly two miles! Our address is Bradenton but we are super close to Cortez, Bradenton Beach, Holmes Beach and Anna Maria Island. With over 2000 sq feet of living space, your family up to a total of six persons (and we may consider a small dog) will be right at home and comfortable! We are not in a setting that would be enticing or accepting of groups but we are in an ideal setting for couples and small families - out of the traffic but close to absolutely everything!
We have a fantastic Lanai overlooking the back yard, heated pool, boat dock and canal. Feel free to tie your boat boat at the dock, park your trailer in the driveway (up to three vehicles, including your trailer will fit on our driveway) You can catch many species of fish right off the dock, depending on the season and since we are near the end of the canal, manatees are spotted there often in the cooler months! We have personally caught sheepshead, snook and salt water catfish from the dock!
Inside our home is a very modern kitchen, two nice sized living rooms, three bedrooms (two with queen beds each and the third has two extra long single beds), two bathrooms (one with a jetted tub!), a full sized laundry room and a one car garage. We of course have central air conditioning, a fully stocked kitchen will all cooking and eating utensils (pots, pans, silverware, spices, cups, plates, coffee maker, all major appliances, blender, etc). You can literally bring your personal items and settle in for a week, a month or more!
Getting back to the back yard, as you will spend so much time out there, you will enjoy fruit from the trees. There are several nice palm trees, a banana tree and an avacado tree. The yard is fenced on three sides (6' privacy fence but open on the canal side of course) so if approved to bring your small dog, he / she can can get exercise and relax without the ability to go for an unaccompanied walk.....

About Mike Betz
We have owned vacation rentals in Maryland since 2004 - we bought this house in 2013 and are offering it to rent starting in March of 2018. We have been going to the area for many years to enjoy the beaches, boating and excellent fishing! The home is in a quiet, safe neighborhood - close to everything but out of the beach traffic. We have a few favorite restaurants and there is always something to do / see in the area!
Mike Betz purchased this House in 2013

Beautiful home and view
Was a great time! Owner was easily accessible and home was perfect!
We had a wonderful stay at this property which was close to everything but not crowded or congested. The house was extremely clean and beautifully decorated as well as stocked with everything we needed. The swimming pool was amazing—warm, clean and inviting. The dock was nice for sitting, fishing or just watching the wildlife. The neighbors were helpful and the neighborhood was friendly and safe. The TVs were great and easy to use. The owners were nice and receptive to all calls in a timely manner. The barbecue was great and easy to use. We will be returning soon!
A tropical paradise that is close and convenient to everything!
We have been renting homes on Anna Maria for the last twenty years - many years we have rented in multiple places. We decided to stay off the Island for the first time due to the traffic and feeling more and more confined as there are so many rentals / people there. We could not be happier with our choice and have already booked Nassau Bay for another stay in 2018!
While the pictures are excellent and represent the home extremely well, it is not possible for them to convey the "feeling" of this home - both inside and especially outside! At a glance from the front of the home, you might think it is a small home - that could not be farther from reality, as we soon found out! There are two large sitting rooms with lots of great furnishings. The kitchen is modern and spacious - anything you could possibly want to cook is in that kitchen. The bathrooms look brand new and they even have the taller toilets for us older folk. The beds are extremely firm and comfortable and with TV's in each bedroom, we felt like we were right at home. All of the above are the things the you expect in a nice rental - and the pictures do a great job illustrating. However, when you step on the lanai, you are blown away. The yard and neighbors yards all have beautiful, mature palm trees. They become especially attractive as you enjoy a colorful sunset as the backdrop - which we enjoyed many evening! The privacy fence is a great touch - it is a large yard, all to yourself with your own personal heated pool to enjoy, privately! There are constantly fish jumping in the canal which is neat to watch and one morning we watched a huge manatee meander around the end of the canal. We rented a pontoon boat for the day and docked it at the house. The pool and pool furniture are extremely accommodating - the pool was warm each day.
When you do leave, the house is super convenient to shopping, beaches and restaurants while being in a quiet residential area. We walked in the neighborhood and used the bikes in the garage.
Our first experience staying off the island could not have been better. You can not explain the feel of this home. If you are still on the fence about booking this place, book it! You will be happy you did!
