Top rental owner/manager - 2009-16!!

Rent with confidence knowing that "Travelers rated the owner/manager of this property one of HomeAway's best!" The Queen sofa bed, with full memory foam mattress, is more comfortable than most beds! We have a brand new central A/C/heat system. Our ratings rate us as cleanest vacation rental on island! Not only do we have this beautiful vacation rental exceptionally & professionally cleaned before your arrival, we go the extra mile to have things you may not even think of, and can't see. For instance, we have central A/C/heat air ducts professionally cleaned and sanitized every 6 months. So, for those of you with allergies you don't have to worry about breathing airborne mold spores and bacteria which can develop in air ducts. Most rentals don't even think of offering cleaner air as do we!

We also have a state of the art, $3000 UV water purification system. You will be drinking and bathing in the purest water on the island! Once again, other rentals don't even think of offering purified water as do we! We think you will notice the difference. Why bathe and drink water that has chlorine and fluoride, and whatever else in it? We think you will notice the difference.

We offer the best interior appointments such as:

Wide screen in Master bedroom.

The Living room has a 44" wide screen SMART TV with Blu Ray DVD too! Small collection of DVD's.

Queen 100% memory foam sleep sofa. This is more comfortable than most beds. Doubles nicely as a second bedroom even though it is a living room.

Brand new kitchen. Solid cherry cabinets. Black granite counter. Black series and stainless appliances. Fully stocked with spices, coffee, oil, new plates, utensils, etc.Includes pots and pans etc.

New beautiful premium beach style bedroom furnishings featuring California King bed. A little bigger than a regular King bed!

Living area has a new very comfy electric reclining chair.

Brand new Dining set with expandable table.

Big new screen lanai. Enjoy the peace and tranquility of our outdoors without the worry of mosquitoes! Enjoy the view of our manicured tropical landscapes. Sit back and read a good book, enjoy a special peaceful dining experience to sounds of the birds and swaying palms.

This beautiful beach vacation rental is peaceful and serene. It overlooks our beautiful tropical courtyard with large outdoor picnic area. Being by the sea, with our breathtaking tropical landscape, some of our guests suggested we name the property "Seascape". so we did!

We have a fishing dock, steps away, where you can catch 'the big one'! Then barbecue it on our gas grill! Yep, fishing gear included too.

For those of you who have stayed at this rental in the past (over half of our guests return) you may not recognize this rental since the completion of our makeover. The interior of this home was nice before, now it is more beautiful and more comfortable than ever. Screened windows with front back and side windows. Great natural ventilation in case you prefer fresh air over our new central A/C. Living area walks out to private balcony. Full bathroom with new Jacuzzi brand toilet and relaxing massage shower head. Bathroom has glass door shower. Entire home has SECURE WiFi (private modem and private password). The living area and private balcony overlooks the peaceful courtyard, lush tropical foliage including palm trees, fruit trees, etc. A great place to just sit back, listen to the birds, and recharge your batteries. Pina Colada optional. This unit has no unit above you and is the epitome of peace and relaxation! Flat widescreen TV in bedroom too! Unit is bright and cheery. ALWAYS MINT, MINT, MINT clean!

You may not find another spot so close to the beach and bay yet so peaceful and with such ambiance. This is the most sought after and narrow part of the island. Our serene setting only steps from bay on one side and and beach on the other. Yet, you can walk or take free trolley to all the nearby activities, Restaurants, Marina, Boat, Bike, Kayak, SegWay, etc., rentals, Bars, Boutique shopping, Mini Golf, Para-sailing Pier fishing, Bait shop, etc! Nothing like the sea air and palms to relax and unwind to. You are almost certain to see Dolphins from our dock! If you like to fish, this is area is fishing heaven!

Every square inch of this vacation home exudes attention to detail. I think you will agree that the unit is special. You may love this vacation spot so much that you may never want to leave.

Need more reason to visit? Our island has miles of unspoiled beaches and old Florida charm! ...park your car, 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 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 Theater, 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 jet ski 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. Armand's 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

We have vacationed all over the world and kept returning here. We loved it so much we decided to invest and retire here. We think you will fall in love with this charming home, spectacular beaches, and all that the area has to offer.

Why Mark Owner/Manager chose Anna Maria Island

The home is well furnished, spotlessly clean and equipped with everything you could possibly need. The position is the most sought after part of the island. It's just a short walk to the beaches, shops, bars and restaurants. We think you will see why this is the most sought after part of the island and why our Island has been voted to the top 10 vacation destinations in the USA (including Hawaii) By the Travel Channel.

What makes this condo unique

If you like fishing, we have a NEW dock you can walk to in just about 30 seconds. 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 palms and the scenery is simply breathtaking. Just a quick walk down the road is The Coquina Baywalk at Leffis key where you will enjoy acres of boardwalks built along the Bay. Spectacular scenery and wildlife. 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! Anyway, I can go on but, even though this is a recent listing see our first few reviews that speak volumes. All five star and those are ratings from before our makeover. Our vacation rental was nice before, now it's even better!

Notes:
We have a strategic alliance with nearby rental shop. You will receive a $10 discount on cruiser bike, kayak, Segway, etc. rentals. For the health conscious, we have installed a $3K water filtration system. Unlike other vacation rentals on the island that use public water which is heavily treated with CHLORINE & other chemicals our filtration system filters all this out. So, when you bathe, cook or, drink, know that you have the purest & only chemical free water on the island! Not only is this healthier in every regard but, women will notice that their hair is fuller & skin is softer after washing as their are no chemicals to make the hair limp or to dry out skin! We also have the cleanest vacation rental anywhere. We clean things you can't see! I.e., air ducts are professionally cleaned and sanitized twice each year. Furnishings are actually moved & cleaned behind & underneath prior to every arrival. Linens are professionally laundered & sanitized in commercial grade equip

Sunrise on Sarasota Bay, Sunsets on the Gulf of Mexico

  • 5 of 5

Great place! Perfect location. We literally woke up every morning and walked 100 feet to the dock at the end of the street every morning and watched the sunrise over Sarasota Bay and then walked the 100 feet the other direction in the evening and watched the sunset over the Gulf of Mexico. Mark and his wife were great and very accommodating. The place is well-equipped and comfortable. We will definitely be back!

Great couples weekend. Cottage charm. Very clean.

  • 5 of 5

We loved this beach bungalow. The courtyard is gardened beautifully with the help of the owners 6 year old son. This beach cottage has everything you need and is very clean. We hope to come back and stay again. Owner provides a cooler and beach chairs. Beach is just across street and town is a 2 minute walk. Beautiful beach and sunsets.

Charming, clean, family friendly and excellent location

  • 5 of 5

We've enjoyed two relaxing and memorable vacations here and are hoping to make this an annual vacation destination for our family. The accommodations are clean and the unit nicely decorated with a lovely shared outdoor courtyard which feels like an extension of the unit. We found the location very family friendly and the access to beach chairs, blankets, beach toys and umbrellas makes it so much easier to get to the beach and relax! Cute shops, restaurants, miniature golf and ice cream all are within a short walking distance. Most important though, we found that the family that owns and manages the rentals care very much about their property and are very kind and attentive to their guests. We are grateful to find this charming location and are looking forward to our next vacation here!

Wonderful time in a beautifully done unit.

  • 5 of 5

Had a wonderful relaxing time along with many other nice guests that we met on our stay. Our unit was very clean and nicely decorated. My favorite spot was the private screened in lanai with solar umbrella... perfect for sitting at night. I loved having beach chairs and a beach umbrella and beach towels. So convienient....everything we needed to cooking on the provided gas grills and spices to matching Pier One dishes... classy touch! I absolutely loved the washer and dryer they had right there for the guests to use free!!! I would return here in a heartbeat!

We did mention it would be smart to switch the refrigerator handles to open toward the kitchen instead of the entry door... it was a little awkward faced that way. Other than that I can't complain about anything.

I had an issue with my Pay Pal deposit because I screwed up and sent it back to the owner Mark....over Easter weekend while he was traveling, he so graciously took care of my mistake and made sure the deposit was issued back to my account! We enjoyed our stay immensely and meeting Mark, his wife Lily and son Marcus. Super location... we parked our rental car and walked everywhere or jumped on the trolley... it was literally 200 steps to the beach... I counted!

Very nicely appointed one-bedroom unit. Superb location. One minute walk to sandy beach. The bottle of wine to welcome was an added bonus.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your great review especially for mentioning our most sought after "superb" location. Being on most narrow part of island we are just Steps to beach on one side and steps to our fishing dock on the other. Glad you liked how beautifully appointed this rental is. We have a continuous reinvestment plan for continuous improvements. So, It's always going to have a fresh new look.

Wonderful location!

  • 5 of 5

We love this location...just above Longboat Key on a narrow strip of land providing access to beautiful beaches on one side and fishing the inland waterway from a small pier at the end of the street!! (Caught five flounder in a few hours) The Unit #6 was just as described; cozy with a great bed; a super reclining chair; comfortable couch; very well stocked with everything one might need -- even a two wheeler to load up all of the chairs and umbrellas, coolers, fishing gear, etc. We had a great time and look forward to going back. The neighbors confided that Mark takes good care of his properties! We appreciated everything.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the great review! Delighted that you enjoyed our most sought after location, steps from beach on one side & bay with fishing dock on the other. Sounds like our fishing gear worked pretty well. I think you may now have the new record for most flounder (delicious fish) caught in 2 hours. Holy cow, just saw the picture you sent me of you holding one of the flounders you caught. That was huge!!! Looks like a 20 pounder! We look forward to having you back as our guests soon!
