Our new ground floor single story (NO STAIRS) condo (1 queen bed, 1 full sleeper couch,) is a very charming and cozy beach condo! Virtually everything in the unit is like brand new including; brand new A/C and heat system! You may not find another spot so close to the beach & bay yet so peaceful & with such ambiance. It is in a peaceful private compound steps from bay & beach. Nothing soothes like the smell the salt from the sea & sound of the waves, the palms, the sea birds, etc. You are almost certain to see Dolphins from our dock or beach! If you like to fish this is fishing heaven!
You will have a private off road parking spot right outside this home.
You have your own storage unit with fishing gear, chairs and umbrella.
We offer Gas BBQ. Home is always clean as can be!
There's a paved trail across street that leads to Coquina Beach. If you go all the way to the end you can loop under bridge & find Coquina Bay Walk Preserve. Here you will enjoy the most breathtaking nature views in FL! Walk the long boardwalks that encompass the Bay. You can loop back to the Coquina Cafe for a cold drink & delicious Hamburger or their great grilled chicken sandwich.
This property has had a recent makeover. Entire home has Italian porcelain floors in every room! Rate includes unlimited calling anywhere in USA and Canada, Wi-Fi, Digital cable, 2 TV's with DVD, Wide screen in Living room and flat screen in Master bedroom. Everything will be like new! If you like fishing, we have a dock just about 40 steps away too. If you like going for walks, there is a marvelous paved trail across our street that goes for about a 1.5 miles or so along the beach. The trail is covered by weeping pines and is simply breathtaking. You will be hard pressed to find a location that is so beautiful and peaceful with such spectacular scenery. You will enjoy a wide variety of restaurants all within walking distance including our favorites on the historic Bridge St Pier. Watch for dolphins and Manatee while dining! Our low intro sale rates will never be lower! Rates will be going up soon and we are booking fast, act now and save.
For the health conscious, we have installed a $3000 water filtration system. Unlike other vacation rentals on the island that use public water which is heavily treated with CHLORINE and other chemicals our filtration system filters all this out. So, when you bathe, cook or, drink, know that you have the purest and only chemical free water on the island! Not only is this healthier in every regard but, women will notice that their hair is fuller and skin is softer after washing as their are no chemicals to make the hair limp or to dry out skin!
This is a recent listing and I think you may agree it says something that we already have so many reviews and all 5 STAR. We have also been awarded as a top vacation rental by a competing vacation rental site who's name can't be mentioned on this site. So, rent with confidence knowing we have been in this business since 2009 and plan on being here for a long time.
So, if you are looking for a vacation rental that is spotlessly clean and very tastefully furnished, not like some of the other 'sterile' rentals on the island. If you are looking for a vacation rental with all the amenities of home and all the equipment you can ever need for your vacation, fishing rods, wi-fi, beach chairs, cool bag,beach towels, umbrella, beach cart, etc. you found us!
Less than a 60 second hop, skip and jump over to the main beach on the Gulf and the same again to the small dock on Sarasota Bay. The condo is situated in the ideal position on AMI as it's only a short walk from all the facilities, bars, restaurants and shops.
Eat on the pier, on Bridge St. for all you can eat fish and chips for about $10, a bargain!
Quiet neighborhood, no thru traffic. VERY PEACEFUL. The fully kitchen is stocked with everything anyone would need: pots, pans, utensils, coffee maker, microwave, oven - and Publix is just about 2 miles north. The bed is very comfortable; as is the fold out couch.
We really have tried to think out every minute detail to make sure your vacation experience is better than you expected. The unit Is tastefully appointed. Very bright and cheerful.
You may never need to drive your car. Take the free trolley all over the island. it picks you up right on our street corner. Another free trolley brings you all the way to Sarasota where you can make several stops along the way including the Mote aquarium, downtown Sarasota, with stops on Longboat Key and St. Armand’s Circle. Daily service runs from 6 a.m. to 11 p.m. every 30 minutes. Every 15 minutes if you are staying on the island. 5 (+/-) minute walk to Bridge St Pier. Enjoy fishing from the pier. No fishing license required and bait sold right on the pier. Clean the fish you catch right on the Pier and barbecued the fish on our gas grill.. Nothing like eating a fish as fresh as this!
Need more reason to visit? Our island has miles of unspoiled beaches and old Florida charm! ...You won't need a car but if you have one you will have an off road reserved space. Let us know if you prefer not to rent a car and we can provide you with the contact details of our driver. He currently charges $80 to/from Tampa airport and less to/from Sarasota airport. When you arrive everything will be cleaner than any other vacation rental you have ever been to! We provide sanitary clean linens and towels so you don't have to pack your own! When you arrive, just kick off your shoes, and enjoy the unhurried pace and tropical lifestyle of Bradenton Beach!
The Island has three cities: Bradenton Beach, Holmes Beach and Anna Maria - all of which are surrounded by the waters of the Gulf of Mexico, Sarasota Bay, Anna Maria Sound and Tampa Bay. It’s just minutes to local attractions and theaters. You are also convenient to the Florida Airports and Theme Parks.
There’s also a variety of restaurants and eateries, within close walking distance, to choose from including; The Beach House Restaurant, Oma’s Pizza, Maestro Italian Restaurant, Banana Cabana, Bridge Street Bistro, Sun House Restaurant, Rotten Ralph’s, Gulf Drive Café, Island Creperie, Joe’s Eats & Sweets, and Bridge Tender Inn.
If you’d prefer some local diving, Sea Trek Diving is located in Bradenton Beach with easy access to the Regina Wreck Underwater Preserve — or you can spend some relaxing time with a good book at Tingley Memorial Library (2nd St N), find a favorite spot (so many to choose from—at the beach, on the dock, in the garden, on the pier, on a boat…), and just enjoy!
The Island Trolley (free!) can transport you around Anna Maria Island to Holmes Beach and Anna Maria—or use our rental discount code for a discount on a motor scooter or bicycle rental and do your own exploring. You’ll find more great restaurants including Eat Here, Beach Bistro, & The Sandbar, as well as more great shops and galleries. Island Players Theatre, Anna Maria Island Historical Museum, Anna Maria City Pier and tennis at Anna Maria Community Center or Holmes Beach City Courts as well as a skate park are also great places of interest. Just take the free trolley to any of these great destinations.
Venture west over the Cortez Road Bridge to Cortez Fishing Village on mainland Bradenton (less than a mile) and you’ll find two marinas offering a variety of boating excursions, sailing cruises, fishing charters, canoe/kayak rentals, pontoon boat rentals, ultralight rides/tours, parasailing and jetski rentals. Cross the bridge from Anna Maria Island to Longboat Key (less than a 3/4) and you’ll find MarVista Dockside Restaurant, Moore’s Stone Crab Restaurant, Mote Marine Laboratory, Pelican Man’s Bird Sanctuary, and The Longboat Key Center for the Arts. Bike riding and rollerblading are popular on the 11 mile island of Longboat Key. St. Armands Circle at the southern end (by Lido Beach) is a delight for shoppers with its exclusive specialty shops, restaurants and horse and carriage rides.
