About the property

Direct Beach Front

Sandcastle Condominium Unit # 6

200 Gulf Dr. South Unit # 6

Bradenton Beach, FL 34217

The Direct Beachfront has spectacular million dollar views out over the Gulf of Mexico. This really beautiful, direct beachfront condo has 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and directly overlooks the crystal blue waters that stretch out to the horizon. In the mornings enjoy that first cup of coffee on the balcony to the sound of the Gulf gently lapping on the edge of the sands and in the evenings sip a cocktail and watch our spectacular Florida sunsets light up the sky over the water as the sun slips down over the horizon.

As well as having the perfect serenely beautiful beachfront location, Direct Beachfront is really conveniently located for trying out several of our delicious ice-cream parlors! Also within a few minutes' walk from your front door there are several breakfast places to visit, a crepe restaurant that is popular with visitors and locals alike and a pizzeria which consistently produces some of the best in town. If you don't want to drive to the local grocery store five minutes away, just walk across to the 7 Eleven convenience store for the basics. Life here is so easy!

Nestled right on the edge of seven glorious miles of white sugar sand beaches at the north end of the idyllic Coquina Beach area of Anna Maria Island, this amazing condo will sleep up to eight comfortably. From the living area and the balcony you can watch dolphins frolicking in the azure seas of the Gulf of Mexico and sailboats drifting by on the horizon. Swim in the heated pool, step straight on to the sands or stroll the beaches looking for sand dollars and seashells. This is a beach lover's heaven.

The decor reflects the colors of the Gulf of Mexico; aquamarine and crystal blue accented with natural elements of ivory, cream, wheat and white and complimented by island style southern living furnishings. Large glass sliders lead out on to the balcony, perfect for checking out the beach and watching Florida's spectacular sunsets as the sun slips gently down over the Gulf, lighting up the sky with red and gold. For relaxing moments, entertainment goes hand in hand with technology: HD LCD TV and stereo, with a TV in every room. Keep in touch with family, friends and business with high-speed wireless Internet. If you do not have your laptop, an iMac computer and printer are available for renters to use. You also have the benefit of long distance to USA, Canada, and all USA territories (Puerto Rico, etc.)

Just across the street in the island's historic Bridge Street, where you will discover an interesting mix of cute small shops and some great restaurants. At the end of Bridge Street are the pretty Bradenton Beach clock tower and a long wooden pier that extends out into the waters of the bay. If you enjoy fishing it is a great spot to cast a rod over into the water to catch your lunch or just stroll out to watch sailboats and cruisers meandering by. Direct Beachfront is close to Bradenton Beach Marina, so if you want to rent a boat, or find a mooring, it is just a short walk away.

Sleeps 2 - 8 people maximum. No extra persons allowed and absolutely no pets allowed.

Now enjoy an even more incredible beach vacation. Photos were made before the multimillion-dollar beach expansion that widened the gorgeous beach approximately 70%!

Happy beach vacation

  • 4 of 5

We loved the condo. Beautifully decorated and comfortable. The kitchen was well stocked, plenty of towels and extra bedding. The location was perfect, restaurants, bars and shops directly across the street. Had pizza deliverd to the beach during the afternoon. Pool is very small (size of a hot tub). The live music from the bars is very loud at night but ends promptly at 10pm. We thought the noise would be a problem but turned out to be fine. We would love to go back again someday.

Beachfront Beauty!!!

  • 5 of 5

This condo is Perfect!!!! Perfectly decorated, immaculate, and the VIEW is amazing!! When you're not on the beach, the porch is the perfect spot to sit and enjoy the view. I loved getting up early morning and having my coffee there. Great beach view from the Master bedroom too when taking a break from the beach. The water is the prettiest aqua/greenish/bluish......just gorgeous! The sand is white and stunning against the water. Oh, and those Sunsets are amazing!!! There were shops, ice cream parlor and restaurants directly across the street. The only not-so-great thing about this condo was the pool area. It is very small and under a carport area. Only a couple of chairs to sit in. But everything else is so great that it made up for it! LOVE this place!!!
