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 which 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.

Check out the sister property which includes an adjoining door to this property, expanding to sleep up to 12 guests.

Why Justin chose Anna Maria Island

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Our stay was awesome! Just want to let you know that the seat on the girl bike flips up. we tried to fix it but couldn't. You have a nice place and furnished well. If you did the decor you should pat yourself on the back!

We loved the property and it's location. Hope to return next year.

The property was even nicer than it appeared in the photos. We had one very minor glitch and it was handled promptly and efficiently. Our friends staying elsewhere were impressed with it also.

We loved our stay in the Treehouse and would not hesitate to stay there again!

  • 5 of 5

We were there for a business conference in Bradenton and found the location to be perfect. While we didn't spend much of our time in the apartment, we found it to be very well appointed and extremely comfortable. It was well stocked and clean. The beds were quite comfortable and the air was wonderfully cold.

The Treehouse is nestled in a quiet residential area a block and a half off the main drag so while we were just moments away from all of the things we wanted to see and do, we were guaranteed peace and quiet when we returned for the evening. That's a huge perk on a busy conference week! The wifi is also reliable and fast.

The beach and several restaurants/ bars were within walking distance but we drove to most things and had no difficulty finding parking. We very much enjoyed our visits to the Wicked Cantina- light Mexican fare & to die for margaritas, the Island Times Bar & Grill- great lobster bisque, excellent service & a fun crowd and the Gulf Drive Cafe- light, fresh seafood fare & delicious frozen drinks with live music right on the beach. Catch one of the amazing sunsets here!

There are only a couple of things that may need attention. I could not get the Hamilton Beach Kuerig type coffeemaker to function properly after multiple attempts. After wasting several pods trying, we just bought coffee and used the regular coffeemaker. The lighting on the entry stairs could be improved as the lower portion is not well lit at night and difficult to see. Also there were a couple of boards on the porch/deck that seemed to be weakening and may need attention in the near future. Otherwise, this place is PERFECT! I cannot wait to come back to this place! Anna Maria Island is phenomenal. None of us wanted to go home! The beach is pristine and the water was beautiful and clear. Absolutely, my new favorite beach destination!

Thank you, Justin, for sharing your awesome place with us!!

Everything as advertised.

  • 5 of 5

The property is exactly as described in the description. It was close to the beach in a nice neighborhood. Close enough to the city and far enough away to enjoy the island. Everything you need is at the house. Grab some groceries while going through Bradenton and you could honestly not have to leave the island again. We really enjoyed the house and beach. The park by the house was great for the kids to play basketball, they could watch movies at night, grab snacks from the fridge, and feel at home while on vacation. We will definitely be coming back to stay in the house again. Best vacation we've had as a family. Thanks for making it great!

Perfect Location .... Great place LOVED OUR STAY!!!

  • 5 of 5

Justin has been very prompt with responses throughout booking and stay. The apartment is very spacious and comfortable. ... updated amenities for sure. Our kids room with 2 twin beds was nice although they were awaken by our neighbors (they had small babies) this is totally NOT the fault of owners but something we got used to. All the beds were comfy. I'd say this apartment could sleep 2 couples (one in master and one in living room) and still have 2 extra beds for kids if needed. The laundry room was a HUGE PLUS...our washer didn't work and Justin came RIGHT away and fixed it. He was so helpful and PROMPT. He truly takes care of his property. This apartment is right across the street from the beach so convenient. ..... hose outside was great to rinse off before entering apartment. There was plenty of chairs, toys and portable grill to use. Kitchen was easy to cook in and very spacious. This was our very first Family Vacation and I really wish I could book this unit EVERY 3 months just to get away.... this is how much we enjoyed it. I recommend for ANYONE.... with kids, or without kids. Perfect spot in a calm peaceful getaway in paradise! !!!
