About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 4 )

This elegant 2 bedroom Townhouse has 1.5 baths is located at 118 52nd. St. in Holmes Beach west of Gulf Dr. Its location is within walking distance to free transportation all around the island, quality eating establishments, shopping and was just a very short walk to the beach. The townhouse has a front and back patio with a charcoal grill. A washer and dryer are provided. This unit has high speed internet with free domestic long distance calling. This townhouse is wonderful and affordable property on a quiet street 100 yards from the beach.

For the boater/fisherman: fishing piers, excursion boats, boat rentals and charter boats are available. Rent a jet ski or kayak, go for a parasail ride or scuba dive - there are so many options! Marinas are located around the island or bring your own boat - ramps are conveniently located and the fishing's great!

For the beach goer: Anna Maria is seven miles long and offers peaceful, white sand beaches running the length of the island. Take a walk, find some shells, get some sun or just relax on our beaches; they're spectacular.

For the explorer: From the north end of Anna Maria to the south tip of Bradenton Beach, treasures are to be found on our beautiful island. Explore the shell-lined shores on the beach or bird-watch over the bay. Stroll our island to your heart's content or rent a bike and take advantage of our many bike paths.

For the shopper: Anna Maria offers many different kinds of quaint beach shops, gift and dress shops. No car required - our free island trolley can easily transport you all over the island! For more 'extensive' shopping, two outlet malls are located by I-75.

For the whole family: Theme parks are located within two hours from Anna Maria. Spend a day at Disney World, Busch Gardens, Cypress Gardens, Mote Marine or Sarasota Jungle Gardens - they're too numerous to list! Museums, botanical gardens, state parks abound and make great day trips. During February and March, see the Pittsburgh Pirates play at McKechnie Fields in Bradenton.

For the golfer: The Manatee and Sarasota area offers close to 50 courses - from executive par threes to challenging championship 18 hole courses.

We could go on and on - the beauty of Anna Maria Island has to be seen to be appreciated. The recreational activities are too numerous to list and the weather is too fantastic to believe! Come see for yourself!

Driving Directions

Arriving from the north or south on Interstate 75, take Exit 220, heading west on State Road 64 into Bradenton. SR-64, also called Manatee Avenue, will take you to the Anna Maria Island Beaches. After crossing the drawbridge, turn left at East Bay Drive. Head south approximately one half mile to Island Vacation Properties. We'll be on your left at the corner of 30th Street and Gulf Drive. Look for the big blue sign!

Overall very satisfied - highly recommend for couple or small family

  • 5 of 5

The unit was clean and inviting upon arrival. Plenty of cookware, utensils, and dishes to accommodate most any need. Convenient to local, semi-private beach (only steps away), as well as several well known public beaches along Gulf in easy driving distance. Several options for restaurants and entertainment aside from beach activities. Publix and CVS close by so no need to pack the coolers down ahead of time. Fishing, water sports, bike rentals, etc... all within steps ,to only a few minutes away. Dry Dock Grill, Small Town Creamery, and Cortez Deep Sea Fishing are a must. Chuck (owner) was very attentive to any/all needs and/or concerns, beginning with a courtesy call/text around our anticipated arrival, again at mid stay, and once again at end of stay as follow-up. Having rented in a variety of Gulf and Atlantic coastal locations over the years, this will go down as one of our best experiences for a modestly priced, near-beach rental. As “Empty Nesters”, this will be on our short list of locations we will return to in the future.

Excellent in all regards...

  • 5 of 5

A very short saunter to a great beach. The property is well appointed with all amenities and perfectly clean. Several restaurants are a brief walk away. Very quiet location & you can hear ocean waves in the evening if you sleep by an open window in the front facing bedroom. Chuck contacted us after arrival to ensure we found everything to our liking...a very gracious host indeed. We will easily & happily stay again in the future. You cannot miss with a stay at this property.

Amazing Vacation

  • 5 of 5

The condo was very nice and roomy for the two of us. It had everything we needed and it was a short walk to the beach. We wanted a quiet place to relax and enjoy ourselves and this place was perfect. Stayed on the beach all day, went out to great restaurants at night, explored the island, and then went back to walk on the beach at night. PERFECT!!!!!!!
