Bradenton Beach Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-plus small child)

This sun-kissed Gulf-front apartment is directly on the beach!! You can walk the beach to several family owned beach front landmark restaurants that are on the must visit list. It has new air-conditioning, new large tile on the diagonal, crown molding, and a spacious bedroom. Second story unit with stairs to condo and balcony.

One of the fabulous things about this rental is its proximity to lots of things to do. Only 90 minutes to ORLANDO (Disney, Universal Studios, Sea World, outlet malls), 45 minutes to TAMPA (Busch Gardens, Adventure Island Tampa Aquarium and Raymond James Stadium - Home of the Super Bowl in 2009) and 20 minutes to SARASOTA (Ringling Museum, Selby Gardens, Jungle Gardens, Siesta Key). Less than an hour's drive to Spring Training homes of the Baltimore Orioles, New York Yankees and Tampa Bay Rays. Only 15 minutes to world-class shopping and dining at St. Armands Circle. One of the country's largest outlet malls is in Ellenton 20 minutes away.

Take a trip along the beach on the free trolley. The greatest thing about this area of Florida is that it still retains the old Florida beauty (no large high rise condominiums on these terrific beaches)... And the beaches... They are simply beautiful... wide with lots of white sand and shells. We hope you enjoy it as much as our guests have for the past four years!!!. Please email with questions etc. Emails are the best way to make contact.

About Larry Arnold

We've had the pleasure of hosting hundreds of guests over the past ten years and especially look forward to our return visitors who have been with us for years.

Larry Arnold purchased this condo in 2006

Why Larry Arnold chose Anna Maria Island

It was in a small building with only 12 units directly on the beach. There were views of the Gulf of Mexico from every room. Because the building was only two stories high it was like getting a penthouse (LOL). The place simply put is 'beach bliss!'

What makes this condo unique

nothing between the condo and the Gulf but SAND...no roads to cross during heavy traffic days...just a beautiful sun-kissed beach, great shells, warm Gulf water...all on an island that did not allow for big tall buildings...that kept its original Florida feeling...

WOW!!!! Better than We Imagined!!!

  • 5 of 5

After reading the other reviews I booked the place for the July 4th holiday week.. We dreamed for months about our Anna Maria Island vacation. From the moment we stepped on the porch overlooking the Gulf we were greeted with the vision of crystal clear aqua-blue waters and white sands. I never imagined it this beautiful! Every morning we sat drinking coffee and were visited by dolphins swimming close on the beach...Every morning!... One was even in hands reach of me while I was floating around one day.. We even saw a small sea turtle and found shells just as gorgeous as the ones in the shops. The place was very clean and had all that was necessary..Arrangements were simple and easy. Air conditioning was amazing after coming in from the hot days. Trolley stop right down the street was convenient for getting down to Bridge Street and back. The sunsets we witnessed painted the surroundings with the most vibrant pastels we have ever experienced! I will never stay any place else!!! Vacation Rental... very affordable...Vacation experience...PRICELESS!!!!!!!

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for an affordable spot right on the beach and found it! Best sunset views ever! This area of the beach is not crowded either. The rental was very clean with the most beautiful tile floors and granite counter tops. The towels were new, fluffy, super soft, and absorbent. The bed linens were also soft with a new looking bedspread that was very pretty. The bed is a little soft, but we slept great on it. Oh, and the AC kept the unit comfortably cool. The owners were very nice and easy to work with. We can't wait to return!

Absolutely beautiful

  • 5 of 5

I spent 3 nights here even though I am a Florida resident a weekend at the beach is still and always will be great. I have to say this condo is exactly as pictured, very clean and WOW what a view you can not get this type of retreat from a hotel this was fantastic and I WILL be a repeat customer... You feel as you are truly somewhere on a private island yet have many things close by for any need that arises.

I already can't wait to return!

Fantasic Florida Get-away!

  • 5 of 5

When we first saw this property on VRBO it was exactly what we were looking for. An Oceanfront Condo that was clean, well decorated and a location that couldn't be beat. The building only has 12 units and this unit is a second floor unit, that provides a spectacular view of the ocean and sunsets. We could not have been happier with our choice! The unit is well stocked with everything you would need to enjoy your stay. The area is peaceful, quiet and relaxing. The beach is not crowded at all which makes it much more enjoyable. When you open the windows to the unit, your can hear the ocean surf. We completely enjoyed our stay and would definitely come back to this area and we would not hesitate to rent this unit again and we highly recommend it to anyone looking for a beautiful oceanfront get away.

Time out in paradise

  • 5 of 5

Part of me wants to keep this slice of paradise a secret! Have been here a couple times and can't wait to get back. This place is prefect for a romantic getaway or just a little quite time for reading, reflection and relaxation. Literally, outside your front door is the beach and the Gulf. A gorgeous location. Love my coffee or happy hour on the beach doing absolutely nothing, but being content. Friendly walkers, runners and families pass by, smile and say "Hello" and that's all part of the peace and quiet. Great restaurants, music, and activities are a stroll away if you want that, too.

Wave when walk by, I'll be in my beach chair with a big grin.

Excellent, Quiet Escape

  • 4 of 5

The condo was perfect old Florida, but very comfortable. Simple building, well kept, only two floors and right on the beach. You listen to the surf every day and all night. The bed was soft and the leather couches were a dream to fall asleep for an afternoon nap. The beach and water were incredible. Very clean and uncrowded, water was clear and bathtub warm. A great spot to setup for families or couples or just to recharge your batteries. We saw dolphin's and manatees every day! Just4Fun rentals brought any extra beach toys you needed, right to the condo, almost like you brought your own gear.

Notes:
Rare condo complex with only 12 units ON the beach. This is 'old Florida' the way it used to be...no big tall buildings, just sand and shells....and the sound of the waves lapping onto the beach.
