Delightful condo perfect for a beach getaway!
We just returned from a wonderfully restful stay at this lovely condo located in the heart of Bradenton Beach on Anna Maria Island. The condo is beautifully appointed and well stocked for all your beach and living needs. Our hostess was always available to answer any questions. It was also nice to have a few of the essentials such as paper towel, spices , coffee filters, vinegar and oil provided. The condo was very clean and we settled right in to the comfortable pace of beach living. The beach is just a few steps away (across the street -which can be busy!). The beach is wonderful with soft sand and beautiful blue waters. Rarely was it overly busy and the chairs provided by the owner, were perfect for some serious beach relaxing (and reading!). The local restaurants and shops are a short walk away. The owners kindly left a great list of their favorites places to go which was very helpful.
I would definitely recommend this lovely condo to anyone who wishes a laid back beach experience on the beautiful island of Anna Maria.
Thank you so much for taking the time to write such a GREAT review. Glad you enjoyed the island and the condo. We love the beach and walking to the restaurants and shops too. Hope you come back again next year for more island style relaxation!
We enjoyed our stay at this beautiful, cozy apartment in Ana Maria Island, FL. The place is kept clean and has all the necessary amenities to enjoy the beach and just relax. It is very conveniently located in the middle of the island strip, close to the center of activities. Definitely a place to stay if you want to enjoy beautiful sunsets and the smell of the ocean.
