Thank you for considering my home which has been recently updated to provide the warmth and feel of a true beach cottage. Wooden ceiling planks have been added along with pine beach chic cabinets and decor. I put many hours into the design of the home to provide a feeling of tropical relaxation. The location of the duplex home is within walking distance to the beach but tucked away from the hustle and bustle of beach traffic and other vacationers.
The home sits between the gulf beaches and the bay, but is truly in the middle of everything Anna Maria Island has to offer. Free Trolley rides (every 20 minutes) allow easy travel through out the island to restaurants/bars and historic sights. Located in the city of Bradenton Beach, which has a smaller more private beach in comparison to others nearby. We are also within walking distance to the bay which offers a baseball and basketball court, playground, and a small area to launch canoes or kayaks.
The elevated property has been lovingly restored in 2013, boasting a full kitchen with standard size stainless steel appliances and granite counter tops. There are flat-screen TVs in every room, Blu Ray/DVD player, and free wireless high-speed internet access throughout the house.
The master bedroom has a memory foam queen bed and an en-suite bathroom. The second bedroom has two twin beds that can be converted into a king bed, and is off the living/dining area with private access to the second shared bathroom. The family room area has a sleeper sofa that can easily provide sleeping accommodations for 2 additional guests.
Central Heat and AC, BBQ Grill, Washer/Dryer, LCD Flat Screen TV's, Cable TV, Blue Ray/DVD Players, Microwave, Blender, Toaster, Full Kitchen, Linens and Towels provided. Housekeeping provided upon request (additional fee). This property will accommodate up to 6 adults and has onsite parking for multiple vehicles, RVs or boats.

Why Justin chose Bradenton Beach
It's off the beaten path, literally tucked away between the gulf and bay. Plus, it was a home that needed a complete renovation. I love home improvement projects and interior design is a passion of mine. This property gave me the opportunity to wipe the slate clean and create exactly the beach house I wanted.
What makes this Cottage unique
There is a beach trolley stop within a short distance of my place, making it easy to roam across the island without much effort. Plus there is a small private park one street over and on the bay which is nice for my son to play with his nephews. Of course, walking to the beach is wonderful as well.

Great access to the beach. I plan to stay again next year
Great island retreat
We loved our time at this property. The place was clean and equipped with everything we needed. Plenty of space. Only issue the bedroom with twin beds didn't really have a dresser or anyplace to put clothes. I found a small chest of drawers in the closet, but one of the drawers was broken. Other than that, we loved the place. Very short walk to the beach or the bay. I would definitely recommend this property.
Perfect location to unwind, check out of life's stress and enjoy the beauty
This place was exactly what we were looking for to get away! Starting with my biggest priorities... The bed in the master was amazingly comfortable so we slept like babies. I will admit to traveling with my own pillow but it is the first time we didn't wake up with sore backs, aching hips etc. after a week in some other space. The kitchen... adequately stocked with pots, pans, silver etc. We dinned out 5 meals in the seven days we were there, thus the kitchen got a work out. The table on the porch was awesome for morning coffee and we often ate a late lunch there after the sun had slipped behind the house. Lovely! We thought the location was perfect. We enjoyed the walk to the beach, the chairs and cooler provided, and the plentiful beach towels. We realized the grill was missing so I texted Justin and he delivered one before dinner. Thanks Justin for the quick response. The best surprise was the outdoor shower. I had read about it but never thought we would use it daily. Perfect size, shape and the water temp was adjustable so you were not just hosing off. I would definitely come to Anna Maria Island again and stay here.
My kids and I had a great time! The property is conveniently located a short walk from the beach. There is a park with play ground equipment and basketball court a block away. Everything was updated and beautifully decorated. I was very excited to find everything we needed, even beach chairs and umbrellas!
The cottage needs work
For a rental cottage that is professional managed, maintained and cleaned, I expected to have just that. When we arrived on Wednesday, the trash cans in the front were tipped over with trash on the ground. The password for the internet that was sent to me was wrong...it was in all caps in your email-not lower case. The laundry room was a mess so when I contacted Justin about the password, I also told him about the laundry room. Saturday, the day before we left, it was picked up. The trash can in the house was dirty with coffee grinds in the bottom of the can and the trash can lid was stained and dirty. There was no dishwasher detergent in the kitchen and no kitchen towels. The kitchen and cooking utensils are just stashed in cabinets and a mess. The twin beds were made with no top sheet. Most of the sheets and towels in the cottage were stained, so we questioned if they were clean or not. The topper was the shower curtain. A plastic shower curtain is $3....in a rental property, you have a dirty, stained shower curtain that is knotted up on the rod. Brilliant! Your place needs some tender loving care before renting to someone else.
Wonderful place to stay
My family and I rented both sides and it was wonderful. The home came with everything you needed. We did have a problem with the A/C unit but Justin got someone out there very quickly. They were unable to repair the unit so Justin brought a window unit so the house would be cool. Perfect place to stay on the island!
