Wonderfully appointed beach house with a great location
This is a wonderful house located mere steps from the beach and from both a north & south bound trolly stop. There are not one but two full laundry rooms located on the main level and upstairs near the bedrooms, which in a house this size was very convenient considering how often someone in our party had laundry to do. This house also has an elevator, which I do not recall seeing mentioned in the listing so we were surprised to find that. The kids’ bunk rooms are located on the main level and share a good sized full bath with tub. Upstairs the street-side king rooms share a similar full bath. Ocean-side, the two King master suites each have a large en-suite bathroom with walk in closet. If I had to nitpick on something it would be the master showers. Both have only a rain shower head, which I personally dislike as being impractical as the only source of water in a shower that size - but this was only a minor annoyance.
The kitchen was very nicely equipped and the high end appliances were very conducive for the several large meals we cooked. We also grilled out several times. Overall it got the job done, but the grill could use some maintenance to get it up to full functionality. The far left burner valve was broken and stuck on high so there was no temp control on that side of the grill. Also the igniters for each burner only worked maybe one out of five times so we had to use a lighter to stick down there and wait for the WHOOSH of the gas catching the flame which is always a bit startling. But we made it work for the handful of times we grilled lunch and dinner without further issue.
The hot tub was great once we figured out how to turn it on and takes about 20-30 minutes to reach a nice hot temperature, so be sure to plan ahead if you want to use it so that you don’t have to wait in a hot tub that’s the same temp as the pool. There were many floats provided which came in very handy for our group in both the pool and Gulf. Also there were eight or so very nice Jimmy Buffet beach chairs which were a pleasant surprise. These looked fairly new and each had a built-in cooler in back with a storage pouch and cup holder on the sides. The only beach equipment we needed to rent were some beach umbrellas that we got at a rental place down the street next to the Publix for a few bucks per day per umbrella. This was a great alternative to purchasing some cheap disposable umbrellas for the week.
All in all, it was a first class experience.
Beautiful Beachfront Home!
The most amazing unobstructed ocean views, simply breathtaking. Owners were attentive and very accommodating. Everything was exactly as pictured. However, this property is right off a busy portion of the main road - so great location for easy access to great restaurants and shops but there is considerable road noise for the 4 bedrooms that are on the road side of the home (not the other 2 bedrooms that are ocean facing). Kitchen and bathrooms were beautiful and exactly as pictured. Overall it was a wonderful beachfront home, highly recommend!
Spring Break vacation!
We had a great week relaxing and enjoying our spring break! The house was perfect for our family as we have kids and the convenience of the house to the beach was perfect! We will be back!
We are glad you had a great Spring Break and that you chose to stay with us! The weather really cooperated too. We look forward to having you back any time.
Beautiful property. Great access to town and beach.
Thanks Steve. We're glad you enjoyed your time on AMI and at our home. We would love to welcome you back any time!
Amazing property with gorgeous views! Owners were so friendly!
We had a wonderful family vacation full of pool time, building sandcastles, enjoying the island and taking in the beautiful sunsets. The beach house accommodated our large family very well. Large family spaces and plenty of privacy with all of the bedrooms and bathrooms. Our kids enjoyed the game room and the pool and beach toys. It was great the house had a large supply of beach towels.
We grilled and cooked several meals together. The appliances are top notch. The washer and dryer came in very handy since the airline lost our luggage for four days!
This property is a perfect location on AMI. Close the the Publix store, trolley stop right across the street as well as a convenience store for any last minute items.
The owners were so friendly and accommodating. We can’t wait to plan another visit!
Thanks for staying with us! It was a pleasure hosting your family and we're pleased you were able to utilize so much of what the home and Island has to offer. Please come back to visit!
Picture perfect experience in every way!
Our stay at the house on Bradenton Beach couldn't have been more perfect. The house itself was so accommodating for large groups, in our case multiple families. We could tell there was a lot of thought put into the house to ensure there were enough complete spaces for families to get their own space, down to the tvs in each room, multiple bathrooms, and all of the bed space!
The house was beautiful beach style and set the mood for a relaxed beach vacation. By far our favorite aspect was the private access from the house to the beach. The beach was lovely (we journeyed to siesta key one day and although we enjoyed it, were eager to get back to the calm quiet beauty of our ocean house space) and it was just a dream being able to walk outside with all of the beach gear provided by the house, and set up shop! The pool on the property was equally fantastic and was a nice alternative to the beach when wanted (especially as with small children, parents could sit here with their sound monitors while babies were napping !)
The house was also positioned facing the nightly sunsets which were just breathtaking. The 2 balconies came in perfect for nightly viewings and truly this was something that blew us away and we hadnt expected.
The island itself was so quaint and beautiful, so many good restaurants within walking or biking distance, and easy access to groceries, pharmacy, and the like.
Our hosts were extremely responsive to our questions and enhanced the experience all the more!! Definitely looking at yearly booking this place, we cannot imagine a more scenic, convenient house/location!
It was terrific hosting your family. So much fun to see generations together enjoying each other. We look forward to having you back soon!
