About Terry Chapman

Tristan graduated from Manatee High School in Bradenton and both of our children were born here. Our careers took us away, but we love to return to Anna Marie Island whenever we can to our home-away-from-home. We currently live in Fort Myers, Florida, and our condo is managed by Tris's sister Terry.

Terry Chapman purchased this condo in 2005

Why Terry Chapman chose Bradenton Beach

Anna Marie Island is a family-friendly place reminiscent of old Florida with many "mom and pop" businesses and restaurants. There are no high-rise condominiums blocking the views of the beautiful white, sandy beaches, and the Gulf of Mexico is great for swimming. There's really no other place like it!

What makes this condo unique

Our condo is nicely decorated and comfortable, but our favorite place to be is on the balcony facing the Bay watching the birds and the dolphin catching their dinners. The advantage of facing East is being able to sit out their in the evening without the sun in your face, enjoying a cool beverage. We think you will love it, too.

Great Vacation Rental

  • 5 of 5

We found this to be a wonderfully, comfortable condo. It was well-stocked -- especially the kitchen. We loved that there was an open cabinet to place our snacks. (Some condos have all cabinets filled and then there's no place to put the guest's items).

We particularly liked the new bar height Adirondack loveseat with table on the deck (where did you get that?!). My husband thought the lazyboy-type chair in the living room was the most comfortable he has ever sat in. The master bed was comfortable as well. Loved the hand held showers too.

Terry answered all of our questions and was awesome to communicate with.

Since you asked about improvements for future guests, I think that a few new beach items would be beneficial. The beach umbrella was not very sturdy and couldn't withstand the wind on the beach. So, we ended up not being able to use it. Being from the north, our pasty white skin can't take the sun. So, a new better quality beach umbrella would be awesome. Some additional lightweight beach chairs to carry to the beach would be great too. Other than that the condo had everything we could want and more. Adding a new beach umbrella and beach chairs would push it over the top!

Thanks so much for letting us rent your condo.

Best Place on the Island

  • 5 of 5

We have been going to Anna Maria Island (Brandenton Beach) at least once per year, for 15 years. For the last 3 years we have stayed at Bay Watch. We used to think the beach side was the place to stay, but when the sun goes down, the beach is simply dark. On the bay side, there is always something to see. There are only 16 units, heated pool, covered parking, 78 paces to the beach, and it is walking distance to many restaurants, and a public beach/park.

This unit is 2 bedroom with lots of room and closet space. The deck offers a great view and opens to the living room as well as the master bedroom. Nice flow through ventilation if you want lots of fresh air. The kitchen has everything you could possibly need, and the in-unit laundry is very handy.

We will be stating here as long as we can.

Great time on the Island at Terry's Condo

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at Terry's Condo. My sister flew in from MA and it was so nice to sit on the balcony and watch for dolphins and just relax. The gulf is just steps away and the large pool was so nice to sit out by. The Island has lot to do so we were always busy. Terry has everything you need at the Condo for the beach, fishing and to make it feel like home. We are from Florida and love to go down to Anna Maria Island to get out and relax. We will be back we had a great time.

Can't wait to go back

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just returned from a week at Terry's condo. It was awesome! The balcony is amazing. We saw sharks,dolphins, stingrays, lots of fish jumping. Condo was great. It had everything we needed. Can't wait to go back. OMA pizza is delicious and Lobstahs lobster bisque is the best we ever had. The last day we drove down to Coquina beach. Wish we would have went sooner. It was awesome and across the street is coquina bay walk. Terry was very quick about returning our security deposit. Thank you Terry for your hospitality.

Review of rental 195944

  • 5 of 5

We spent a month renting Terry's condo. When we arrived it was very clean and well-maintained. Terry was very accommodating and ready to help anytime. The view was great and we enjoyed having our coffee on the patio in the morning. We saw dolphins splashing right in front of the unit. We really felt at home and had fun discovering our surroundings. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would definitely return.
