About Joel

We are newlyweds and this is our first 'home' purchase together.

Joel purchased this condo in 2009

Why Joel chose Anna Maria Island

We decided to purchase this condo for the unspoiled beauty of the beach and old Florida charm of the island. We looked at properties from Clearwater Beach all the way down to Siesta Key and this condo took our breath away from the second we saw it. The complex is intimate and relaxing with spectacular views even from the covered parking. Once we walked inside the condo the first time, we NEVER wanted to leave so we decided to call it our home away from home! This truly is paradise at its finest...

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a great time here on the island. This was our first trip to AMI. Would definitely visit here again and rent this condo again. Joel even checked in with us to make sure we arrived and needed anything. The condo is really nice and the beds were very comfortable which is not always the case. It was nice to be able to walk to everything - prime location. We will definitely be back to visit and will rent from Joel again.

We LOVED everything about this condo and vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This condo and vacation was by far the best we've had!! The location was ideal with restaurants, bars, gift shops and ice creams shops with in one block of the front door and the beach steps away of the back!! I can't wait to go back for another week!!!

Awesome!!!

  • 5 of 5

This condo could not have been better. From the time we booked it with Joel until the time we checked out everything was awesome. The location is literally on the beach and out front is the round about at The historic Bridge Street. Condo is clean, very tastefully furnished and feels like home the minute you walk in the door.

Amazing views, amazing location, great Condo!

  • 5 of 5

On the Beach Condo was outstanding. Joel the owner was very engaged and communicated promptly with any questions. Location is great, right on the beach but also in walking distance to numerous resturaunts, shops, bars, mini golf, moped rentals etc. The only possible downside was the pool was kind of small but we were on the beach anyway. We would definitely rent this condo again.

Live Music could be heard sometimes a little late, didn't bother us as we sat on our balcony and enjoyed it from there.

Beautiful and convenient

Each year, (this is our 3rd), we are in awe at the beauty of the condo and the fact that we do not have to use the car once we arrive! Joel is the most attentive owner with whom we have ever worked.

Perfect location for a perfect Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

What a great place for a week! This is an amazing condo. It was well stocked with the necessities. Very comfy beds and nice large closets. The location was perfect for our family ( two adults and two young adult children and their spouses.) The north end of the Island is definitely more laid back if that is what you prefer, but we found this location to be a perfect fit for us. Outside the front of the Condo was the beautiful, relaxing beach...we saw Dolphins in the morning and amazing sunsets in the evening. Out the other side of the Condo was lively Bridge Street. We shopped, walked, fished on the Pier, and spent almost every evening in a different restaurant with live music. Everything we needed was within walking distance. The guys golfed on the mainland, but the girls only left the Island once, and that was a trolley ride to St. Armand's on Longboat Key. We have stayed in many VRBO/HomeAway rentals over the years and I must say Joel is exceptional when it comes to communicating with his vacation renters. We felt he was just an email or text away for any questions or concerns. I would highly recommend this "Waterfront Paradise!"

Located in the heart of Anna Maria Island’s historical district, shops and restaurants are just a short walk away. Just across the street in the island's historic Bridge Street, discover an interesting mix of cute shops and 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's a great spot to cast a line and catch your lunch or just take a stroll and watch the sailboats and cruisers pass by. Bradenton Beach Marina is just a short walk if you want to rent a boat. Enjoy a five star meal at one of the fantastic and unique restaurants on the island. Make a stop at the ice cream parlor for a tasty treat! A miniature golf course is just ½ block away.

Directly in front of the condo, on Gulf Drive, is the Island Trolley Stop which offers free transportation around the island.

Golf: There is a golf course on the island and 45 more courses close by.
