Lovely spot to relax

  • 4 of 5

Jo, we had a wonderful time visiting with family and friends and couldn't have asked for a better "home base". The teens enjoyed the pool, but especially liked the freedom of being able to walk to the store and the beach. We found everything we needed to make our stay comfortable. When next we head south we would be glad to stay at your property again. Thanks for all!

Spacious, stylish, comfortable and clean

  • 5 of 5

The property is perfect in terms of space, style and location. We stayed here with our 7 year old daughter who lived in the immaculately clean pool. Its a five minute walk to the beach and a five minute walk to Publix. The development is very well maintained and is quiet and tranquil.

We had a wonderful time here and highly recommend this property to anyone looking for a relaxing break. You don't need a car to get around the island as the trolley stops right by the property.

December vacation

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this condo during the 2nd week in December and had a wonderful vacation. The pictures do not do the condo and surroundings justice for how nice it is. The location was perfect with the grocery store and pharmacy all within walking distance. Very peaceful area to stay as there is not near the traffic that is in other parts of Bradenton. We hardly used the rental car we had with the free service of the trolley taking us to the beach and other areas we wanted to go on Anna Maria. We cant wait to go back next year !
