Before you book, ask how you can save the 10% (+/-) service fee!

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, exceptionally clean. 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 bed. 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 appliances. Fully stocked with spices, coffee, new plates, utensils, etc.Includes pots and pans etc.

New beautiful premium beach style bedroom furnishings.

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. Special outdoor table has custom LED lighting.

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!

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. It includes a big Master bedroom with California King bed which is even a little bigger than a normal king. Brand new deluxe kitchen with solid cherry wood cabinets and rare black granite counter. New black series premium appliances in kitchen. Screened windows in Living area that walks out to private balcony. Full bathroom with new Jacuzzi brand toilet and relaxing massage shower head. Bathroom has glass door shower. With the King bed and Queen sleep sofa this vacation rental sleeps up to 3 persons. 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. Cozy dining set. Very comfy electric recliner.This unit has no unit above you and is the epitome of peace and relaxation! Living area with big 44' wide screen TV and Blue Ray DVD system. flat widescreen TV in bedroom too! Unit is bright and cheery with great cross ventilation for those who like fresh air instead of A/C. Brand new central A/C & Heat system. Unlike most rentals we spend $500 every year to clean and sanitize the air ducts. New top end furnishings. Freshly remodeled and 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 sound of the waves 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! Don't worry, we provide fishing gear.

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!

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!

Budget friendly, great amenities & family friendly.

  • 5 of 5

This property is set up like a family oriented compound. With a center courtyard. Our upstairs 1 bdrm unit was about 500 sq ft. The bathroom is cute but very small. The shower is about 18 inches width from wall to door. It was furnished with soothing colors. This was our 1st trip to the island for a wedding. Our family was staying at a multi plex tri-level condo at Holmes Beach. We were happy to find a place at the last minute. The bed was very comfortable, the linens were clean & crisp. The amenities is what makes this such a great deal. They've really thought of everything. Towels, beach towels, everything you need in a kitchen, coffee maker, beach bag, beach cart, fishing poles & you won't need to bring anything for the beach. They even have body boards near the outdoor shower. The beach across the street wasn't my favorite. They are doing some sort of dredging and there was a no trespassing concrete pier of sorts. We loved Coquina Beach. It is south of the location. Holmes beach is slightly north and within walking distance. The management does not interfere with your stay but are reachable if needed. We spent most of our time at the north end of the island. Loved the city pier on the inter coastal water. It's beautiful. The water is calm, very clear. Great for floating, kayaking, fishing or just relaxing. We ordered the "hungry fisherman" at the city pier. Loved it. Loved the boutique shopping! I would strongly recommend the Beach House restuarant. We ate there several times. The food is quality. The drinks are quality. The location of this property is really convenient to all the excursions you can think of. You won't find a better deal on accommodations on the island for all the amenities they've included. Also the wifi was very fast. I rated this property 5 stars. Because the listing is very accurate. There are numerous patio sets with umbrellas in a shaded center courtyard for evening drinks beneath the stars. The only downside for me was there is no designated outdoor smoking area anywhere on the outside of the property. If you are a smoker, you shouldn't book this property unless you don't mind going off site. Read the listing, it is noted that it is non smoking. That means no where on the property. In my opinion, it is the amenities (they've thought of everything) that makes this a steal. Pack your clothes, grab sunscreen & groceries and your set for vacation!

Owner's Response: Thank you Barbara for your extremely detailed and appreciated 5 star review. The shower is not big but, like most beach vacation rentals, it is a standard size fiberglass shower with glass door. The "dredging" work you mentioned, is now finished. Than ks for mentioning that our pictures do accurately show the size of the rental. Unlike many rental agents and owners, we do not use photographic trickery with wide angle lens to make our rental look larger. We use Apple cell phone for pictures. I appreciate your mention that you "rated this property 5 stars. Because the listing is very accurate... In my opinion, it is the amenities (they've thought of everything) that makes this a steal." I appreciate all the other positive things you had to say. We just added a big private screened lanai for this rental. It, overlooks the beautiful tropical courtyard. I see you have already booked your next stay with us hope you like this new lanai.

Great Place

  • 5 of 5

Adorable place and decorated nicely. Very comfortable and peaceful. Unit #6 was perfect for couples. We enjoyed ourselves and plan to return. Half a block from bay and ocean. We caught flounder, toad fish, and several other types of fish that we weren't familiar with off the dock on the bay. Beautiful sunsets. A beach cart was available which was helpful. Although we brought our own stuff, fishing poles, beach chairs, and rafts were available for our use. My only compliant is that the shower was very small. My husband is 6'3" 260lbs and he kept hitting his knee or elbows when he showered. I'm 5'8" 140lbs and I had no problem. Bathroom small but definitley manageable. Also the vacuum didn't work well for getting up sand (I hate sand on my feet after a shower and no matter how much you spray off, it comes in with you) and no broom was available. Overall it was a wonderful place and great area.

Owner's Response: Thank you for you excellent 5 star review. I especially appreciate your mentioning how nicely decorated, comfortable, peaceful, and great location. Thanks too for mentioning the lack of suction from vacuum cleaner. We have cleaned the filter and it is no working like new again. When you return, please let me know if there's anything like this and we will address right away during your stay. Thanks for being such excellent guests and we look forward to having you back again!

Great getaway for an older couple

  • 5 of 5

Mark and Liliana have a wonderful little (6 units, I think) collection of condos here, clustered around a cute little courtyard, with grills, bikes, fishing gear, etc. My wife and I (in our late 50s/early 60s) stayed in this unit (#6, upstairs) for 10 days, and had a great time. The condo is a very short walk from the beach, although we often drove a few minutes down the island to the state park or to the pubic beach just before it, because there was a lot of repair work going on at the beach across the street (Mark said something about the state "repairing the groins", and I nodded like I actually knew what he was talking about :-) ) It's a longer, but very easy, walk to the restaurants in town, and we alternated between walking and driving to dinner (breakfast was a drive - I can't walk before coffee, no matter how close). The unit was clean and cozy, the hosts were nice, supportive, and unobtrusive, and their small son was cute as a button.

We'll be back to Anna Maria Island, and to this place, for sure.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your excellent review. So happy you will return again! The construction on the groin (aka erosion prevention pier) was just completed....finally! So, no need to go more than a few steps to beach again! Yay!

The heart of the island!

  • 5 of 5

Stay where the action is. 200 feet East or West takes you to the intracoastal or the beach. Convenience stores, bars, restaurants, and small beach shops are 5 minute walking distance. We loaded up the provided beach cart with beach umbrella and chairs (also provided) and spent a perfect afternoon on the beach. A packed beach cooler on wheels (cooler provided) ensured that we had all of the refreshments we needed to stay until the sun set over the Gulf. We bicycled along the beachfront road (bike path) every day. The apartment was clean and comfortable and had everything we needed to prepare our own breakfasts (went out for dinners). Fishing on the nearby dock looked good but didn't have enough time. We'll do that next trip. Owners were helpful and friendly and always available by phone.

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just returned from a wonderful 4 days in Bradenton Beach. This property was perfect for our stay! Mark and Lily did a wonderful job with this place! They thought of everything from beach chairs, to coolers, to fishing poles, and all the spices and kitchen utensils you needed. It was very nicely decorated as well! We didn't even begin to take advantage of everything they had available to us, as we were happy to sit on the beach and not cook or do much for those 4 beautiful days on the beach. They were on site and very accommodating, asking if we needed anything and how our stay was. This was our first experience with VRBO and it was a good one! The condo was very clean (and I have very high standards for cleanliness), the courtyard was beautiful, and the location to the beach, bay, and main areas was great! All on a quiet street. We will be back!

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
