This cozy, peaceful, versatile duplex is situated between the beautiful Gulf of Mexico and the Intercoastal waterway. The island here is only one block wide, and you are on that block. Imagine being able to get up in the morning and watch the sunrise over the Intercoastal waterway, and just as easily be able to watch the sunset over the gorgeous Gulf of Mexico in the evening. Leave your cares behind, unwind, and let yourself go. Enjoy the famously white sandy beaches, and be mesmerized by the beauty of the million dollar sunsets without paying a million. Come, take advantage of all this stunning location has to offer. There is easy access to restaurants, shopping, and a multitude of different types of activities. There is nearby access to bike riding, taking the trolley, riding a scooter, jet skiing or parasailing. Or you could even stay in and enjoy barbecuing in the shady backyard. Whatever you need, you can have.

The duplex has two bedrooms and two bathrooms. There is a screened in porch with a washer and dryer. The back yard is fenced in and small pets are allowed. Pet deposit required.

The unit can easily be expanded by opening a door and connecting to the other unit of the duplex if needed. This will add two bedrooms and a bath, enabling accommodations for up to 10 people.

About Janet Wagner

I am originally from Long Island New York. My whole life I enjoyed going to the beach in the summer time. My husband and I moved to Florida in 1994, and then I was able to go to the beach all the time! We found ourselves often visiting Anna Maria Island to enjoy the beach, boating, fishing, and all the restaurants.

Janet Wagner purchased this cottage in 2005

Why Janet Wagner chose Anna Maria Island

We started a family in 2001, and by 2005 had three children. When we saw this property we realized that not only could it be used as a rental, but we could also use it ourselves as our own affordable vacation place. And we have! It has easily met all of our needs and we have set it up to be family friendly. We enjoy being able to provide an affordable, enjoyable vacation experience for others. And we are nearby so that if there is something we can do to help somebody enjoy their vacation more we are able to do it.

What makes this cottage unique

This is a very unique area. As stated before, the island is only one block wide in this spot. And it is a very friendly block! And it really is so very convenient to all that makes Anna Maria Island such a special place to enjoy a vacation.

Bradenton Beach

We are located in an ideal spot on Anna Maria Island. We are within walking distance of Bridge Street and all of its shops and restaurants, and the Bradenton fishing pier. We are five houses from the beach itself at a spot that has paddle board, and jet ski rentals. We have easy access to Cortez Road, and easy access to Manatee Avenue. We are located slightly south of the center of the island which means it's only a short drive to either end of the island. Very easy to get to anything you need. And many activities are within walking distance, including Scooter rentals.

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We rented both sides of this duplex for my daughters baby shower/Thanksgiving/much needed vacation. It was perfect. The back yard, back porch, cleanliness and location made this a perfect spot. We are hoping to return again!

The property was all about location for us as we have stayed on this street before.

  • 3 of 5

This duplex is located on a quiet street and an easy walk to both the Gulf and Bay. It is also close to many restaurants and shops. The best asset of this duplex is the screened in back porch. This cottage is comfortable but small. It could use some updates; a new stove would be one. Janet, the owner, was very nice and accessible.

Perfect, as Usual

  • 5 of 5

For the third year in a row, I have come to Bradenton Beach and this cute duplex for some R & R. The quiet side street, the comfortable interior and the very short walk to the beach are so appealing to me. It is the perfect place to turn off a hectic lifestyle for a week and enjoy the best beaches in Florida.

Nice place to stay

  • 3 of 5

I enjoyed my stay here with my son. Pros: a block from the beach; fully equipped; close to stores and restaurants. Cons: second bedroom is very small and beds are not comfortable; bathroom in that bedroom feels very enclosed; unit is smaller than it appears in photos. I would rent here again, reasonably priced and owner very responsive.

We were pleased with our stay. The location is great and the home was super cute. I would recommend an upgrade to the stoves and a little better communication. Ms. Janet was accommodating but we had a few crossed wires. Overall, I recommend this place and would go back!
