About Robert Waller

My family loves the water we have grown up on the water weather it was the ocean the bay or even the pool. Hope you in enjoy the warm waters of the Gulf as much as my family does.

Robert Waller purchased this condo in 2010

Why Robert Waller chose Bradenton Beach

I took my grandmother down to see her great niece in Tampa which is just about a hour north nice day trip to check out Ybor or Channel Side for lunch and shopping. Well my cousin took us down the side roads to every little beach town from Clearwater to Naples and here it was white soft sand walking distance to everything and the nicest people I could of met, and here I am today on Anna Maria Island little bit of Heaven

What makes this condo unique

Free trolley up and down the island so park the car and enjoy island life....

Beautiful weekend

  • 5 of 5

We totally enjoyed our stay in Bradenton Beach. The home was lovely and was fully equipped and the beds were oh so comfy. We really enjoyed sitting on the deck and it was a very short walk over to the beach. I would totally recommend staying in Robert's vacation home. He was very helpful and took care of all our needs in his lovely home.

We arrived and was very happy that we were only across the street from the white sands and ocean. We have a 1yr old and he found the wires exposed in the outlets that's dangerous. My 3yr old wanted to see the deck to find that it was missing rails and she could of fell off. That night my 18yr old pulled out the sofa bed and found that it was broken. She ended up sleeping with us. No one told us there were renovations happening and we were asked to move our cars to the beach so they can work. We came back to put the kids for a nap and was woken to a man on my balcony hammering and painting. The blinds don't have all the pieces so they can see me, and my kids sleeping. My aunt had to bring a blow up mattress since we could not use the sofa sleeper. The painters told us we couldn't go outside for 2 hours to let the paint dry when we were walking out to get dinner. But besides that. This place is now freshly painted. New boards on the desk all rails are fixed. Nice space beautiful view of the bay only steps away from the beach and 4 blocks away from all restaurants, bars, and pier. Great location!

excellent location!!!

  • 3 of 5

The house itself was nice. It is a 2 bedroom 2 bathroom with a pullout sofa. However, both bathrooms are located inside the rooms. The upstairs room is open, so it isn't private. The house was clean but the cleaning lady was still there beyond 3pm check in time. The deck to enter into the house is unkempt and slightly dangerous. As we were walking down the stairs, one of the boards popped off. Nothing a little TLC wouldn't fix.

The location is absolutely perfect. It is not ocean view but you can walk out to the beach!!! The trolley on the island is free and takes you all over, frequently. There is also an ice cream shop and a few restaurants within walking distance, as well as putt putt and some shops.


I tried to contact the owner several times via phone call and emails both privately and through VRBO for the address and check in information. The day of check in, I called VRBO to let them know I was unable to contact the owner. They told me to head to the general vicinity of Bradenton Beach and if I was not contacted by the owner at 3pm then I was considered abandoned. Although this was not the case, I was contacted around 10am..... A little communication would have been nice as there were several things I needed to plan.

All in all, now that I know where the location is, I would stay here again because of the location.
