Nice little apartment

  • 4 of 5

Everything was great and it was perfect for having a place to lay your head. Only complaint I have is that there is only one a/c window unit and the bedrooms get kind of hot. Other than that everything else was nice

Owner's Response: Unfortunately, Florida in August is hot. This year it was in the low to mid nineties all month. I do provide pedestal fans to push the cool air into the back bedroom, but these guests didn't use the fan. There is really no way to install central air in a building configured as this one is, so wall units are what I use, and I try to install as big a unit as I can, so that northerners aren't baking. I keep my place at 79' and am comfortable with that, but everyone is different. I am glad they had a good time overall. Lynne Budzinski Almost Beach Apartments

Wonderful stay at the Almost Beach Apartments!!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing few days here. We loved everything this little place had to offer! It had charm, comfort and closeness to the beach! My wife and I stayed here and my son who is at IMG was able to come stay with us for a night and he commented we could bring the whole family here to stay(3 additional brothers)... Lynne was great with everything, from the parrot greeting us and also any other needs we had, which were few!!

We had everything we needed... the kitchen was great to have, the beds were comfy the AC worked great, we didn't watch much tv but it was nice to have to watch for a few minutes in the morning and evening, the beach accessories were nice to have too...

Being able to walk to the beach barefoot was one of the highlights...

Anna Marie Island is a beautiful quaint place and we will be back and hopefully staying at the Almost Beach Apartments!

Owner's Response: I remember this family very well. They just had a good time at whatever they were doing. I do hope they make it back! It would be good to have an influx of that much energy every once in awhile to help me remember all that there is to do and see in the world. I wish them well.

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time visiting Anna Maria. I did not know what to expect but Lynne made sure we were comfortable. She was really good with communicating with me and answered all of my questions prior to getting there. There is a free trolley that takes you around the island. Our car did not move until it was time for us to drive back home. There is pretty much everything you could need in the kitchen (plates, glasses, utensils, etc.) It was quiet, clean and cozy. The beach is literally across the street and Lynne has plenty of beach accessories to use. It was much more than we anticipated and we will definitely be back!!! Her parrot was a great touch as well.

Everything you Need!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first vacation to the gulf. Lynne greeted us with her parrot and walked us through a quaint little cottage that fit our every need. This was prime location if you ask me. The beach access is across the street. The trolley stop is less than a block to go up and down the island. We barely got in our car to go anywhere. The trolley is very convenient. House has little porch area to rinse off from the beach, inside has 2 twin beds that was perfect for my boys. The bathroom shower has great water pressure and plenty of hot water. The kitchen has everything you could possibly need. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Just right!

  • 5 of 5

We have no complaints about this cozy little unit. It was clean, quiet, private yet street side, and had everything we needed. The beach and the trolley stops were less than a minutes' walk from the front door. The owner was nice and easy to work with. We had never been welcomed by a parrot before so that was really neat. She had plenty of beach accessories available and also provided extra towels. It was so much more than we had anticipated.

Good Comfortable Value

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for the month of January 2016 and we were very happy with our vacation. The apartment was clean, sufficiently outfitted and met all our needs. The landlord, Lynne, checked in a couple of times a week to make sure all was fine, she was available when we needed her to be, and she offered good suggestions about area activities. One of her parrots fell in love with my husband, which was sweet and a bonding experience. The apartment is as pictured, and really is that close to the beach and trolley. We drive a mid-size SUV and had no trouble parking. If you want granite countertops in a newer condo, this is not your place. If you want some old Florida charm and good value with an interesting and trustworthy landlord, this is a good place. We will be happy to stay here again if we return to Bradenton Beach.

Owner's Response: You really don't get rich doing this, comfortable maybe, but not rich, so, it is people like these folks that have kept me doing this for twenty-four years. I remember them well. We had the chance to visit a little, and while they were here, there was construction going on right across the street from us. I felt badly for my tenants, but there was nothing I could do about it. Everyone here took it in stride, and went on about enjoying their time at the beach. I hope I do get to see them again, they were good people.
