About Mike

U. S. C. G. master licensed captain Mike, advanced scuba diver that is knowledgeable about the area. Mike is friendly and has enjoyed raising a family, working, and living in beautiful Bradenton for over 22 years, only a couple miles away from this beautiful Gulf view property and has no plans to leave.

"Our goal & wishes at Salty Living Rentals is that you have what you need and sincerely enjoy your stay... When you leave take mostly good memories, a few sand dollars, and many dreams of returning…"


Mike purchased this apartment in 2012

Why Mike chose Bradenton Beach

Capt. Mike, owner of Salty Living Island Rentals & Property Services, LLC. (SLRPS) Purchased this 2 story / 4-plex located right in the center of beautiful Bradenton Beach because of its great location and proximity to the Beach, City Parks, and the Bay. The property has on site parking spaces, one assigned parking space for your apartment. Additional day time public parking is on the East side of the building a short 1/2 block away for a beach wedding or day visitors.

What makes this apartment unique

When you stay here you can park your car and forget it (recommended).

Everything you need is right here within walking distance or a short FREE Island Trolley ride away, including Historical Bridge Street, Bradenton Beach city pier and the BEST the island has to offer.

The Sand Dollar white sandy beach has natural wading pools just past the surf. Sometimes there is almost no surf at all, which is popular with relaxation seeking rafters. Wave runners, sail boats, kayaks, beach or charter scuba (ask diver, Capt. Mike or the local dive shop), and other watercraft rentals are just a short walk down the beach. Just let Capt. Mike know prior to your arrival what type of water sport or leisure activity you wish for before or during your stay and he'll be happy to guide you in the right direction…

Wedding parties can walk from this location for all beach wedding arrangements.

Great for a quick stay

  • 4 of 5

Very clean and well kept. Excellent on supplies, to include beach chairs, wagon and beach towels. Great location too. Only note is to make double sure that you are getting the unit you want...we thought we were reserving the top section (one shown in the pic), but we actually got a unit on the front side by the road. That was probably my bad via last minute rush booking (coming into town for a funeral), and those front units are very small and right at the main road. There is a nice area out back, but it was not usable as the upstairs was undergoing work...once completed, that unit would be a great place to stay! The owner was quickly responsive and let us check in early to change for services. Great choices, just depends on what exactly you are looking for and how many.

Owner's Response: Dear Deb, I'm glad the 1 bedroom villa was very clean, had what you needed and that you enjoyed the convenient location. It is important to note that your stay was post Hurricane and the upstairs is now finished. The amazing upstairs villa is a 2 bedroom (not 1) and the road is Gulf (of Mexico) Drive, putting you right across Gulf Drive from the beach (a stones throw to the sand). I believe you're referring to the main picture of the whole property (all 4 units from the Gulf) picture. May I suggest if in less of a hurry, that you contact me and I'm sure we'll figure out your specific needs.

Perfect for our purpose!

  • 4 of 5

The unit was ultra clean! Well equipped with all essentials (even a beach caddy)!

Beautiful gulf sunset view from the front window! It is right off the main road but that’s the nature of the of AMI if you want to be close to the beach!

Owner's Response: I am glad you enjoyed your stay, the villa's sunset views and the just across Gulf drive proximity to the beach.

Amazing Stay - Can't Wait to Return!!

  • 5 of 5

You can't beat Salty Living Rentals. The apartment has all the comforts of home and more; there's beach chairs, beach wagon, beach towels, floats, noodles, BBQ Grill, washer/dryer, 2 outside showers; one on the side and one in the back, chairs/tables in back to hang-out, darts, bean toss... and, located directly across the street from the beach, short walk to restaurants, bars, shops. You can see the sunset from your Villa and the price is right!!! And, for the comment about the busy street/intersection - yes, that's Gulf Drive and as close as you're going to get to the beach without paying the beachfront price. The Villa is quiet and the bedroom is towards the back, so, no street noise can be heard as there's two pocket doors that separate the living area from the bedroom. Great stay and can't wait to return as we love the Island and everything it has to offer. Super Happy!!

Great Place

  • 5 of 5

My stay was wonderful. Mike the owner was very accommodating. Had a slight problem with the toilet, no sooner had I hung up the phone he was there to remedy the situation. He is a hands on owner and was around the property checking and making sure we as his guest had everything we needed. I would definitely go back and highly recommend his place.
