About Mike

Mike is a U. S. C. G. master licensed captain, 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 21 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 villa in 2012

Why Mike chose Anna Maria Island

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 Park, and the Bay. The property has on site parking spaces, one assigned parking space for your villa. 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 villa unique

When you stay here you can park your car and forget it. Everything you need is right here within walking distance or a short free Trolley ride away. The sand dollar white beach has natural wading pools just past the surf. Sometimes there is no surf at all, which is popular with relaxation seeking rafters. Wave runners, sail boats, kayaks, beach scuba (ask me), and other water craft rentals are a short walk down the beach. Just let Capt. Mike know what type of water sport or leisure activity you wish for before or during your stay and he'll be happy to point you in the right direction… Wedding parties can walk from this location to the Beach House restaurant (across the street on the beach) or the Gulf Drive cafe (on the beach) for all wedding arrangements...

Perfect spot for beach lovers!

  • 5 of 5

Mike's place is absolutely perfect for anyone looking for a beach getaway. We were there for a week and particularly enjoyed all the beach gear that was provided (umbrella, chairs, cooler, toys/games). The place has a lovely back deck with grill, hammock, chairs, and plenty of shade for those hot hours in the afternoon when you're ready to be out of the sun. Kitchen was well stocked with anything you could need, and the place is clean and tidy. Not to mention you are literally right across the street from a beautiful, quiet stretch of beach, and walking distance from rental spots for paddle boards, kayaks, bikes, and more. Great spot--we'll be back!!

Paradise vacation for solo or family

  • 4 of 5

You want to stay here!!! Just like home, clean, spacious backyard, I could tell that efforts were made to make us happy :) Plenty of places to visit and yummy restaurants ! Also everything is walking distance... It can be as relaxing or exciting (Parasailing/fishing/seadooing or just you & the beautiful white sand beach) vacation! Thank you so much Mike for your warm welcome. I am already dreaming of coming back...

Very nice!

  • 3 of 5

Very nice place with everything you need! Close to everything. A little hard to pull in and out of due to traffic at a busy intersection. If upstairs is rented you can hear the walking around and sometimes sounds like moving furniture. Other than that... Would book again!

10 days is too short!

  • 5 of 5

My first impression when I arrived at the villa wasn't excellent. Just because the building was right by the main road with a busy traffic junction, we took a bit to figure out how the keys work with two locks on the door, and the door looks like it might need a new coat of paint. And I was thinking I might need to put on the ear plugs to sleep.

That was my designer brain at work looking at the cover of the book. :D

When we explore around the inside of the apartment, we were very please with how clean and well kept everything was. The A/C was turned on to welcome our arrival. That was very nice!

Before we could get settled down, Mike was already at the door with a bottle of champagne.

He was absolutely lovely and helpful all way round.

Our overall experience was very nice staying in the villa. There are restaurants and shops within walking distance. We rented a bicycle and rode till the end of Anna Maria beach, and across to Cortez for seafood lunch on the dock. We watched sunset on the beach just right across the villa, and we saw dolphins! It turns out that I love that the villa was facing the main road and there is no blockage to the sunset view even watching it from inside the window.

I'm a light sleeper but there isn't traffic noise that would bother me because the bedroom is facing the back garden. I slept very well on the soft bed and pillow. :)

We will certainly come back to Villa B again, or the bigger apartment upstairs during our next visit. Thank you Mike!

Comfortable, nothing fancy

  • 5 of 5

Just what you need for a week's stay on Anna Maria island. Clean, comfortable and short walk to beach access. Just be aware that it is on a pretty busy intersection so backing out of parking spot is a lil challenging, but most everyone here is not in a rush and are happy to give you room. (And you can get around easily by foot or free trolley and leave car in spot all week)

This place is also just steps from the happening part of Bradenton beach action, with the shops and restaurants of Bridge street like 2 blocks south.

Great location!

  • 5 of 5

Mike was there or easy to get a hold of if we had any questions. Very clean! We were there for 4 weeks and loved to be so close to everything-so many restaurants, ice cream, and best of all just a walk across the street to the beach. Also nice that there were chairs for the beach there for our use. Beautiful sunset EVERY night!
