Great House and Location!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time. The house was perfect and in a great location. The beach, restaurants and bars just a two minute walk away. We really enjoyed just sitting outback on the dock and watching the boats, dolphins and fish jump. Terry the owner is an exceptional host. We will definitely be back again!!

Terrific house and location!

  • 5 of 5

Two great experiences w one property. Relaxing on the patio watching dolphins in the bay. Or sunning on the beach that’s a very short walk across the island. And a good restaurant and bar on the way to the beach. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. It provided all we needed. Terry is an exceptional host.

Great water front house

Loved it. Spent two weeks. Ate at different place everyday. Three you can walk to within a block. Fish from the dock. We hope to make it back in May.

An Amazing property!

  • 5 of 5

Our family has been coming to Bradenton Beach/Ana Maria Isle for many years. We wanted to try a VRBO for the holiday weekend, and had a completely different experience. This home is conveniently located just off the Cortez, and withing walking distance to beach, drinks, dinner; but, more importantly - is nestled right on the bay with plenty of privacy and seclusion. The home is very spacious, new furnishings and appliances - everything we wanted and more for our little weekend getaway.

Beautiful property, great views and an owner who is available 24/7 if needed. Comfortable beds/tv's

  • 4 of 5

Overall a great place. Even through a tropical storm. The owner, Terry came by to make sure we were ok and secure the house. He refused to come in out of the weather, (although we asked him to), so our family could have privacy. I will stay there again.

Awesome summer getaway

  • 5 of 5

We live in Florida and in fact not very far from this area but we still always enjoy spending a full week at one of our beautiful Gulf Coast Beaches and this area is one of the best. Terry the owner is awesome and has a beautiful bay front house with a dock just a couple of minutes walk away from an awesome beach and also nightlife if that is what you are in to. Great spot.
