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.

For Larger Parties

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

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.

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!

Adorable and accommodating

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in both units and were impressed with the accommodations in each of them. Very clean, plenty of linens and kitchen supplies. Large laundry room and plenty of beach chairs, floats etc. Short walk to the beach and located on quiet street. Wonderful memories made here!

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.
