Top rental owner/manager - 2009-17!!
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 recent 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. Most rentals don't even think of offering cleaner air as do we! We use premium grade air purification filtration.
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. However, we do do have a 2 person occupancy limit.
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.

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 Manatee County
This is one of the the nicest 1 bedroom vacation rentals on Anna Maria Island! Our beautifully remodeled vacation rental is elevated with about 11 steps. There is no unit above this one and, being and end unit means it is very quite and peaceful! Note; All homes and condos, etc., built on Anna Maria Island, since 1973, have been required by FEMA to be elevated. Most vacation rentals are at least this height or one story higher. 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!

Can’t wait to return!
This unit was perfect for us. Though just a bit small, it lacked nothing and we have no complaints at all. Not only was it tastefully decorated, it was comfortable and homey. The grounds were so lush and tropical we felt like we were in Hawaii. I have been a flight attendant for many years and have traveled and stayed in all types of rentals all over the world and this place is top notch! Not only were there the basics in the unit there was also such nice extras as beach chairs, umbrellas, beach towels, coolers and beach carts to carry everything in. We had brought our paddleboards and bicycles and used them almost everyday. The calm waters were perfect for the paddleboards ( we even paddle over a manatee hanging near the pier, and the bike trail near the beach was a fun ride.
I can’t say enough how great this place is. We hope to return as soon as we can and highly recommend it to anyone looking for a quiet peaceful inviting place.
First timers in Bradenton
Our condo was just perfect for my husband and I. Mark was so helpful and accommodating. The location of the condo was within walking distance to beach, restaurants and shoppping. We will definitely be back!
I'm glad you found our condo "perfect". Delighted you enjoyed our most sought after location steps from beach, our dock on bay and easy walk to all the best hot spots. Most of all, so happy you have joined the majority of our guests who come back. See you again in a few months!
Perfect in every way.
Well outfitted one bedroom. Spacious and perfect for two. Very clean and well maintained property inside and out. Owners are lovely and extremely attentive to every need. Beach cart, chairs, umbrella, coolers available for use which is a great bonus. We had a GREAT time! Thank you!
Glad you had a great time at our beautiful and very clean and well maintained vacation rental. Thanks very much for mentioning how attentive we are to our guests needs. We try to provide everything you need to be able to thoroughly enjoy our beach so you can pack light. We hope to see you again soon!
Property was very well maintained, very clean and perfect for two people. We loved the proximity to the beach as well as a variety of good places to eat within walking distance or a free trolley ride away! Mark was very helpful and we would definitely consider staying here again!
Thanks for your nice review and especially for mentioning that our property was very well maintained, very clean, and easy walk to the beach and restaurants. Our most sought after property is on most narrow part of island steps to our dock on the bay in one direction and steps to white sand beach in the other. I'm happy that you will definitely consider staying here again!
Cute cottage, upstairs close to beach.
The beds were really comfortable! Cozy. Large outdoor porch. Family friendly atmosphere. Walking distance from shops and restaurants. Short walk from Beach or bay. Bathroom was a little small. Owner is super nice and responsive!
Thanks for the nice review! We look forward to having you back again!
Perfect location, spotless rental!
We highly recommend this 2nd floor unit on a brick courtyard on Anna Maria Island. We are very happy with the rental unit we stayed in for our escape from a Wisconsin winter! It was spotless and included everything you might need from kitchen utensils to beach supplies The best part was a lovely screened in porch for eating meals and relaxing. The location couldn't have been better; maybe a half a block to the beach or harbor. A paved walking path along the beach was perfect for morning walks and visiting the twice weekly market on Coquina Beach. The family who lives on site was so accommodating and we especially enjoyed the welcome tour from their son, Marcus. Loved that it was so quiet and the free island trolley stop was very close by.
Enjoy 7 1/2 miles of beautiful white sand beaches and spectacular sunsets on the Gulf of Mexico! We are perfectly situated at the south end of Anna Maria island - on a quiet street with a dock on Sarasota Bay. Just steps to restaurants, shops, parasailing, jet-skiing, fishing and boating excursions - and convenient to area theaters, museums, parks and airports.Whether it’s a sun and fun filled day at the beach or enjoying one of the many activities Anna Maria Island has to offer, you’ll be sure to have a great day and the memories you make during your vacation will last a lifetime!
