You've looked at the rest now book the best. Book directly thru this site, in order to secure the dates you want and, at our current great rates. Read on to see what sets us apart from the rest!

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 & our dock on the 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, fishing from our dock or, local pier, 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! When we say clean we mean spotless!

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 is like new!

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!

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, with all the amenities of home and all the equipment to maximize your vacation, fishing rods, wi-fi, beach chairs, cool bag, beach towels, umbrella, beach cart, etc., search no more!

Less than a 60 second walk to the main beach on the Gulf and the same distance to our fishing small dock on the beautiful 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.

About Mark Owner/Manager

Retired and devoted to our rental customers to ensure they receive a care free relaxing vacation. Our goal is to offer the cleanest vacation rental on Anna Maria Island! We are proud to have all 5 Star reviews and over half of our customers as repeat guests!

Mark Owner/Manager purchased this condo in 2013

Why Mark Owner/Manager chose Bradenton Beach

*ZERO STAIRS! Unlike most rentals on Anna Maria Island that are elevated by up to 3 stories (that's a lot of stairs when carting luggage, beach chairs, groceries, etc.) Our beautiful vacation rental is ground level.

* ZERO BOOKING FEE (note, HomeAway does now charge a "service fee" which we do not receive it goes 100% to HomeAway).

*ZERO DAMAGE WAIVER FEE. (You are charged a $200 refundable damage deposit which is refunded promptly after departure).

* ZERO HEADACHES. When there is an issue, it is personally, promptly and politely handled by the owners (my wife or I). Unlike most rentals who operate through an agent who handle way too many other rentals and don't get paid "extra" and therefore hate to deal with "problems".

Peace tranquility and serenity. Additional sleep sofa and folding bed allows for sleeping up to 4. This home has had a $25,000 face lift which includes new kitchen, bathroom, bedroom, windows, doors, blinds and all furnishings and appliances! Gas grill, Washer & Dryer, Full kitchen, Fresh linens, Beach chairs, umbrella, fishing gear, bikes, etc. Outside the home is a big courtyard that is surrounded by tropical plants, palms, and fruit trees. Just steps away is our fishing dock.. We provide basic fishing gear too!

What makes this condo unique

Location, location, location! Steps from beach on one side and bay on the other. Easy to walk to all the activities! Free trolley picks you up about 100 feet away and brings you anywhere you want to go on the island and to Sarasota! No need for a car. Fish off our dock just steps away!

Brilliant Location

  • 5 of 5

This accommodation ideally suited the two of us. We were given very clear arrival instructions. The house was very clean and had everything we needed. We loved the garden and the fishing deck. Fishing poles and beach chairs were provided. We think it is in one of the best locations on AMI. It is just a few yards from Cortez beach and about a five minute walk to Bridge St. for bars and an evening meal. We hardly used our car as we either walked or used the free trolley bus

Hopefully will return to this accommodation again

Perfect couple getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This condo was beautifully decorated with an amazing use of a small space. It was very clean, and had all the supplies you could want for a beach stay. The courtyard between the buildings was a beautiful retreat area that was shared by several units. The location was perfect, super short walk to the beach or the bay, and a few blocks to Bridge Street. I would definitely stay in one of the owners' units again!

Sweet Cottage

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect accommodation for our two-week stay on Anna Maria Island. We loved being close enough to walk to restaurants and shops, but a few blocks away from the busyness. Mark is very warm and welcoming and available to assist with any needs.There is a lot of attention to detail. We appreciate the nicely stocked kitchen and the lovely little courtyard. We are going to return!

Great for beach lovers!

  • 4 of 5

This little apartment is a beach lover’s dream. Steps from the white sand and blue water of the gulf. Gorgeous sunsets! And a short walk to town. Very clean and the owners are very pleasant and helpful. Kitchen and bath are both updated. There is one small dresser with 3 useable drawers and some hooks in the closet. Efficient. One caution...if you’re tall (at all) the scale of the furnishings are difficult. The living room settee is very low. And the bed is very low...and close to the wall. My husband is over 6 feet tall. It was challenging.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your review and for mentioning our most sought after location on most narrow part of island. Steps from top USA beach on one side and steps from our dock on the bay on the other. The low sleek design of our new furnishings is beautiful. Depending on the circumstances, they are actually designed to make it easier to get in and out of bed and futon. We are delighted that you are coming back again next winter!

Our stay at the condo was phenomenal!

  • 5 of 5

What a great place to stay! We got into town early and my wife was feeling ill, Mark was extremely nice and let us check in a little early which my wife appreciated greatly. The condo was very nicely decorated and had everything you needed. The walk to the bay and beach was extremely short as you could see both from the driveway. We have friends that live in Bradenton that were able to check out all the properties we were interested in and we were extremely happy they found this one. The location was perfect on a quiet street away from traffic. Couldn't ask for anything more. We look forward to coming back in the near future.

This is where many of the rescued injured animals, occasional birds, turtles, etc are taken to recuperate and then are returned to nature.

Especially for kids:

G WIZ is located in Sarasota near the VanWizzel a block off of Tamiami. This is a state of the art Science hands on museum. Well worth the visit. Check it out on line to see what they are featuring. Call for cost.
