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 sleep futon and doubles as a second bedroom. Enjoy extra large sliding 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 near by 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!

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.

Wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

The condo is 1 of 9 condos that share a large beautiful tropical court yard that is 3 houses from the beach and about 4 from the bay. The courtyard has tables, benches and 2 gas grills. The large trees in the courtyard provide lots of shade all day. The owner has provided everything that you will need for your stay, including beech chairs, towels and umbrella. A real plus. The nearby beach is public but not over crowded. There are many restaurants and stores to get any supplies you may need. We highly recommend eating at Indian Spice restaurant only a few blocks away. Very enjoyable stay and would certainly not hesitate to rent the condo again!

Owner's Response: Delighted you had a wonderful stay. Glad you enjoyed the large beautiful tropical court yard that is, as you say, just 3 houses from the beach and actually just 3 from the bay too. We are on the most sought after and narrow part of island. Very quiet setting and peaceful. Our slice of paradise allows you to walk to the beach in about a 50 seconds and about 40 seconds to our dock on Bay! Thanks for mentioning that the large trees in the courtyard provide lots of shade all day and that we have provided everything that you will need for your stay, including beach chairs, towels and umbrella. We also include a beach cart. We look forward to you coming back again!

Great stay at a great property

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed in Unit #5 for five days at beginning of June. The property is beautifully landscaped and very well maintained. We didn't take advantage of the courtyard, but it had nice tables and umbrellas, grill etc. and was very private. The unit we stayed in was very clean and recently updated with new flooring and kitchen. Everything we needed was provided in the unit, it was truly like being at home. We spent part of every night alone on the private dock fishing under the stars, we even caught a few catfish. We watched the sunset on the Gulf every evening with our toes in the sand across the street at the beach. The house is only about a five or ten minute walk to the main street with all the restaurants, bars, shops, rental places, and the AMI fishing pier. The fishing pier is beautiful and has covered table areas all over it to stay out of the sun or rain. My wife and I felt like this rental was a real good find, everything they advertised was there and available for us to use, and in good condition. The owners were very pleasant and accommodating, it felt like they would be there if you needed something, but didn't want to bother you. It really was a great vacation, I would definitely stay here again.

Absolutely perfect!!!

  • 5 of 5

This condo was absolutely amazing! The kitchen had all new appliances and very nice cushioned flooring throughout! 55" smart TV, electric wood burning fireplace, the bed was very comfortable, there were movies and books and a stereo, the shower was very nice also. This place had everything we needed for our trip including beach chairs, umbrella, coolers, beach bags and towels and so much more! Just steps away from the pier and a 2 minute walk to the beach! Walking distance to dining, drinks, and gift shops! Perfect location! It exceeded my expectations for sure! Can't wait to come back! I will for sure be calling for this condo again! I was very impressed! The patio area, laundry, and outside shower were nice! The décor was absolutely beautiful! Took notes for my next remodel! The owners were very helpful to make sure that everything went smoothly which was quite a relief! Can't wait to come back!

Owner's Response: Wow! What a great review! Thank you very much. This means a lot considering you were the first to experience our vacation rental since having a complete makeover. After making a significant investment to make this rental really stand out from all the rest, your response is everything we had hoped for! I look forward to having you back as our guests again and again.

Nice and comfortable property

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this property. The house is very cute and comfortable. All of the conveniences that you'd need are here and everything was clean and well maintained. The master bath was a little small and could use some updating but overall a very nice place to stay and good location. We were disappointed that we didn't get to stay in the property we had reserved, but Mark was very clear about the change and we ended up staying in a larger property. The house is a block from the beach although the beach was much busier than we're used to at AMI. There also was some construction going on so we ended up driving and riding bikes to other locations on the island. We love AMI and will be back!
