It is a heater for those chilly winter nights. Great place for a pina colada and to just recharge your batteries! New distressed look wood floors. This place has real character and charm!

You may not find another spot so close to the beach & bay yet so peaceful & with such ambiance. It is in a peaceful private compound about 50 second walk to both bay & beach on either side of property. Nothing soothes like the smell the salt from the sea & sound of the waves. You are almost certain to see Dolphins from our dock or beach! If you like to fish this is fishing heaven!

You will have a private, off road, parking spot.

There is an outdoor storage locker next to your entrance. In the locker is fishing gear, chairs and umbrella.

Use our gas grill. Nothing like grilling the fish you just caught!

Ride bikes to ride the long paved bike paths along the beach.

There's a paved trail across st that leads to Coquina Beach. If you go all the way to the end you can loop under bridge & find Coquina BayWalk Preserve. 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 porcelain floors in every room! Big screened lanai with sliding glass doors. Rate includes unlimited calling anywhere in USA and Canada, Wi-Fi, Digital cable, Plasma TV with DVD. New reclining chairs in living area (not yet shown in pictures). Everything will be like new! If you like fishing, we have a dock just about 40 steps away too. 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 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. 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 look at the PERFECT 5 star reviews that we already have for this new property. They describe how great this property and location is. Our low intro sale rate is great too! Rates will be going up soon and we are booking fast. Act now and save.

About Mark

My wife and I own and operate this property. We own the property free and clear of bank mortgage and have zero intention to ever sell. This means you have peace of mind knowing it will not be foreclosed on or sold after you reserve. We take great pride in offering the best vacation rentals in best location that are ALWAYS spotless clean and with reasonable rates.Over half our guests return on a repeat basis. We take this as a compliment and hope you become a regular customer too!

Why Mark chose Anna Maria Island

3 reasons, location, location, location! Close to all the the fun spots. Walk to several restaurants, fishing pier, bait shop, segway and bike rentals, mini golf, beach side cafes, boutique shopping, tiki huts, marina, boat rentals/excursions, and much more! Even though close to all the fun the home is located in a very peaceful and serene spot with big court yard. You can relax and 'recharge your battery' in our big lanai or courtyard. Listen to the sounds of birds and rustling of palms, while enjoying the beauty of the tropical plants, fruit trees. Good book and pina colada optional.

What makes this condo unique

Big Lanai has a futon and dining set. Enjoy extra large sliding one way privacy glass screened windows. Open concept stocked kitchen with all the extras like being at home. New appliances. Big breakfast bar. Garbage disposal.

Huge California King bed.

Ride bikes to tour the nearby nature preserve and miles of safe paved bike trails!

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!

That special touch of caring!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in several Home Away rentals before but this was super nice. We were greeted with a nice bottle of Merlot, chocolates, and a very nice rental unit that served our needs above and beyond. The place was definitely stocked well for any cooking adventure you would want to dive into while there. We ate out mostly but we did breakfast every morning in the kitchen and I can't say how nicely decorated and furnished our home away from home was. Mark and Lillian were the best hosts and had a very nice book loaded with information about the area for helping us out. The extras are what makes a home like this so special. The push cart for the beach that you could load your cooler bag, beach bag, chairs (all included with the rental) all with the ease of a few minutes walk to the beach. It was great in the mornings for sunrise you could walk about 2 minutes and see the sunrise on the bay. The evenings after shelling and enjoying the ocean all day was only about a 3 minute walk to see the sunset. Paradise at it's best. They actually have 8 or 9 units in this little paradise with the outside landscaped and decorated like your own little paradise cove. There are tables, grills and plenty of seating for several families to enjoy the fellowship of meeting new friends or we are hoping having a family reunion with each family member renting a unit and having privacy when needed, but a great venue out side where we can all gather and eat or play games and not have to leave the grounds and spend a lot of money for eating and refreshments. Believe me if you're looking for paradise, look no further. They even had fishing pools, umbrellas, ice chest, beach umbrella, you literally had every thing you needed for a vacation without bringing any of the extras with you. The only small drawback we found was a no dresser or chest of drawers to put clothing. One closet in the bedroom, and pretty much worked out of our suitcases, but then we over pack all the time. It was probably the most relaxing vacation we have had in our 13 years of travelling. If you want R & R this is for YOU!

Hideaway Cottage

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was so charming and perfect for us. We loved the new decor and felt very at home. The cottage came with all of the beach amenities. We enjoyed BBQ'ing, relaxing in the recliners, and falling asleep to the sound of the bay. It is walking distance to the beach and our favorite Cantina, for beautiful sunset evenings. Not to mention the acoustic music that was very nice. The Cottage owners were easily accessible and accommodating to our requests. I would recommend this beautiful, peaceful place to all. We will be back....for sure!!

Thank you Mark and Lilly for a wonderful experience!!

Enjoyed our stay!

  • 5 of 5

Our cottage was very clean and nicely decorated. The kitchen had everything you would need if you preferred to prepare a meal instead of dining out. The king-size bed was very comfortable. Would have liked a little more room closet room for our clothes since there was no dresser in the bedroom. The lounge chairs in the TV room were very comfortable.

We loved the location as our cottage was a short walk to the beach and many of the restaurants and shops.

Peaceful Retreat unit#5

  • 5 of 5

Wow! What an upscale lovely unit#5 we had the pleasure to call home for 7 nts. This is by far the best place to stay on Bradenton Beach,Fl. All top of the line appliances. The comfortable light cream colored recliners and a LG. flat screen TV to the perky colored king bedroom with a very good quality mattress.A sunroom with a white table and bench seating with cushions and a sofa sleeper loveseat and lots of Windows and sunlight.Books and puzzles. This reminds me of an upscale bungalow. The kitchen is supplied wih seasonings,coffee,tea bags even olive oil. Perfect for a couple or a girlfriend getaway.Mark the owner is at your beacon call, he is just a phone call away.Thank you Mark and Lilly for the best vacation my husband and I had in a long time. The beach was just a 3 min.walk away and resturants and shops so very close.We saw the sunset at the beach every night.What a wonderful vacation all because of this wonderful location and lovely unit.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your thoughtful and detailed review. We especially appreciate your comment that, "This is by far the best place to stay on Bradenton Beach". Thank you for mentioning our great location with just a 2-3 min walk to beach access, you chose you use, 1 street away, with the cross walk. Most guests use the closer beach access, under a 1 min away, in front of the trolley stop on our street. Thanks also for mentioning our high end appointments and appliances. We believe that it is important to re-invest in our property so, great guests like you come back again and, again and, again!

This stay was our second at Island Getaway and the accomadations were great!

  • 4 of 5

We stayed in unit #5 which had a newly renovated kitchen. Granite countertop and very well stocked with every utensil you would need. The lanai provided additional space and we enjoyed meals and playing cards there. Two recliners were plush and very comfortable. The owner Mark is on property and very friendly and accomadating.

What is there to do?

Anna Maria Holmes Beach Bradenton Beach and Beyond

A few examples of AREA ATTRACTIONS

While Anna Maria Island is known for laid back living and relaxation, should you wish to participate in the local scene there's an abundance of activities. If you enjoy biking, Bradenton Beach has a designated bike trail along Gulf Drive. Old Bridge Street has Putt Putt Golf and while you play, there is a misting system so you can stay cool. At the end of Old Bridge Street is a pier for your fishing pleasure as well as a restaurant. There are a variety of restaurants on Old Bridge St making it possible to satisfy every appetite.

Whether it's pizza or French crepes to fish tacos, you can find a meal to satisfy. There are also shops and the US Post office is located here so you can mail post cards to your friends back home.

Naturally you can swim in the crystal clear emerald waters of the Gulf of Mexico. Snorkeling is also fun or surfboarding, parasailing or kayaking. Several local business will rent you all the necessary equipment. Naturally there are golfing and tennis too.

There's really a wide range of things to do here, if you want to have an action packed time you will find plenty. Of course you can always stroll along the shore collecting shells and then watch an incredible sunset with your favorite beverage. Kids would enjoy a visit to Bradenton to see Snooty the manatee. The area of Manatee/Sarasota counties also has great off shore fishing, jet skiing, kayaking, golfing, tennis, shopping, museums, and art galleries to explore.

Be sure to observe all the turtle watch rules as the Ridley turtles are building nests from early May and baby turtles are hatching on our beaches. You might even go on a turtle watch tour with our local turtle lady. Look in the paper for her schedule.

The entire island of Anna Maria has many reasonably priced awarding winning restaurants.The Sign of the Mermaid Restaurant has not only delicious food as in breakfast, lunch, and dinner, but the owner is a triple time National Pie contest winner. Be sure and stop by.

Of course, check out the local newspaper for the latest events about the island. The A.M.I. SUN is just one. It's free and had lots of information you can use on current happenings.

Holmes Beach is famous for the Beach Cafe, Skinny's a small local hamburger, hotdog storefront plus along Gulf Drive you will locate the island grocery store, Publix and several island strip centers with your last minute beach items such as snacks, lotions, toys and beach towels.

OFF THE ISLAND

Mote Science Lab is just a short drive off the island and on to Longboat Key just a few miles to the south. Both you and your kids will enjoy a visit to this 'hands on' science stop. 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.

Day trips:

Disneyworld, Epcot Center, the Everglades, visit close by Sarasota with the Ringling Museum, Saint Armand's, and Selby Gardens.
