About the Property
Cottage 2 Bdrm Sofa bed Tub Sleeps 4 Sliding glass/screen rm Air/water purifir
Anna Maria Island, Bradenton Beach vacation cottage rental. Had full makeover with no expense spared!
This STAND ALONE, VERY CHARMING, cottage is in a very peacful setting with huge brick courtyard. This is not like most other vacation rentals that require you to climb 1-2 stories. This is a stand alone ground level home!
We have just invested in a new kitchen, bathroom, lanai, living area and bedrms. I.e., new granite counters. New Whirlpool dishwasher. New stainless sink, new faucets, new soaking tub, sinks, faucets, lights, Italian tile, designer decor, high end beds & mattresses stove/oven. Upgraded refrig/freezer. Virtually every kitchen tool, like home, making Kitchen fully stocked. Everything is MINT, MINT, MINT CLEAN!
This vacation home even has UV air purification! We try to offer the little things knowing that you have a lot of choices. We think you will agree, all the little things we offer, add up to make a big difference. We hope these differences will help you reach the decision to rent from us!
Dislike chemicals in your water?? This vacation home has a $3000 water purification system to filter out impurities as well as chlorine from the water! You will immediately notice smoother skin and fuller hair when compared to any other vacation rental without water purification on the island!
Entire home has tile floors in every room including lanai!
Screened lanai with sliding glass windows & doors for those chilly nights.
Rate includes; unlimited calling anywhere in USA & Canada. SECURE Wi-Fi. You have your own password for your secure NON shared WiFi! Digital cable, 46' plasma TV/DVD & flat screens in both bedrooms. Master also has DVD.
We are on the most sought after and narrow part of the island. You will love our white powder sand beach just around 50 steps away in one direction. Enjoy clear turquoise water! Walk along the beach just a short way and stop at the great restaurants & live entertainment right on the water. If you like fishing, we have a dock just 40 steps away too in the other direction. FISHING GEAR INCLUDED TOO!
If you like going for walks, there is a marvelous paved trail across our street that goes for about 2 miles, or so, along the beach. This is a great paved boardwalk to walk or bike along every day especially around sun set! The trail is covered by weeping pines & palms and is simply breathtaking.
Just a quick walk down the road is The Coquina Baywalk at Leffis key where you will enjoy acres of boardwalks built along the Bay. Spectacular scenery.
You will enjoy a wide variety of restaurants all within walking distance incl our favorites on the Pier. Last time eating out on the pier we saw 3 dolphins & a Manatee!
You must see to believe.
There are two bedrms. Sleeps 4 and in case one of the four prefers to sleep alone we offer a sleep sofa in the living area. There's a full bathroom that is private to both bedrooms! Unlike most rentals with just a shower, this has shower and soaking tub. Big Lanai with mirrored sliding screened windows. Living area with couch and Lazy Boy recliner. Fully equipped kitchen with food pantry, flat top range and oven. Full size refrigerator/freezer. Large microwave. Unique extras include; pillow top mattresses. The best nights sleep so you can spend more time enjoying the day! Large closets including hand painted cedar closet in 1 bedrm.
We provide everything including beach chairs and towels. Just bring your tooth brushes & flip flops. All windows including Lanai have new white blinds. Lanai has new comfortable dining set. I think you will like the bright & beachy decor.
The furniture in this home is top of the line and includes,Tommy Bahama, Pier1 and, decor includes genuine local wall art.
Unlike other owners who try to handle their vacation rental from another country or, may be at risk of bank foreclosure, or, may have their vacation rental for sale, or may have a management company, who have 1000 other rentals to handle, we are nearby most of the year and own property free and clear of bank mortgage. This property is not for sale and you won't receive a call a week before your arrival date to tell you it's sold. If there is an unforeseen problem we are very responsive and handle the problem personally with a sense of urgency. Our goal is to provide you with a great vacation so that like over 50% of our guests, you return again! Have peace of mind when you rent from us.
Anna Maria Island
Anna Maria island is just seven miles long and is made up of 3 small cities: Bradenton Beach,
Holmes Beach, & Anna Maria at the north. No matter which direction you come, you must cross water
via a bridge. At the southern tip is the most sought after area of Bradenton Beach. You can head north from Sarasota travel on to Longboat Key and cross over a draw bridge on to Bradenton Beach. There are also two other draw bridges from the main land of Bradenton to come onto Anna Maria island. One way is via Manatee Avenue (SR 64 ) & the other is via Cortez Road.
Watch an incredible sunset with your favorite beverage. Kids of all ages would enjoy a visit to Bradenton to see Snooty the manatee. The area of Manatee/Sarasota counties also has great off shore fishing, jet skiing, kayaking, golfing, tennis, shopping, museums, & art galleries to explore.
Be sure to observe all the turtle watch rules as the Ridley turtles are building nests from early May & baby turtles are hatching on our beaches. You might even go on a turtle watch tour with our local turtle lady. Look in the paper for her schedule.
The entire island of Anna Maria has many reasonably priced award winning restaurants.I.e., the Sign of the Mermaid Restaurant has not only delicious food as in breakfast, lunch, but the owner is a triple time National Pie contest winner. Be sure and stop by.
Of course, check out the local newspaper for the latest events about the island. The A.M.I. SUN is just one. It's free & had lots of info you can use on current happenings.
Holmes Beach is famous for the Beach Cafe, Skinny's a small local hamburger, hotdog storefront plus along Gulf Drive you will locate the island grocery store, Publix and several island strip centers with your last minute beach items such as snacks, lotions, toys, rentals, etc.
OFF THE ISLAND
Mote Science Lab is just a short drive off the island and on to Longboat Key just a few miles to the south. Both you and your kids will enjoy a visit to this 'hands on' science stop. This is where many of the rescued injured animals, occasional birds, turtles, etc are taken to recuperate and then are returned to nature.
ESPECIALLY for kids:
G WIZ is located in Sarasota near the VanWizzel a block off of Tamiami. This is a state of the art Science hands on museum. Well worth the visit. Check it out on line to see what they are featuring. Call for cost.
Disneyworld, Epcot Center, the Everglades, visit close by Sarasota (the cultural center of Florida) with the Ringling Museum, Saint Armand's, and much more!
It's just a 15 minute drive to St. Armands circle. Designer shops and world renowned restaurants just a few examples of what you will experience.
When you're ready to book, here are some tips to keep in mind.

Location. location, location. Our most sought after area is just about 30 steps to what has recently been named to 1 of the top 10 beaches in USA. Our laid back island & culture is unlike any other. No high rises, fast food chains, etc. are allowed here. Of course you can drive a mile off the island and find every fast food chain know to man kind if that's what you like. Where can you go and have a private dock to fish from on the Bay, and enjoy spectacular sun rises about 40 steps on one side of property & white powder beach & warm turquoise water about the same distance in the other direction? This truly is paradise. Not to mention our secluded court yard enveloped by lush tropical garden & several palms, avocado, bamboo, banana trees is simply wonderful & inspiring. We have a nice gas grill & private picnic area. Unlike other rentals, never any hidden fees for grill gas, biweekly trash pick up service, wi-fi, unlimited calling, digital cable, etc. So nice you may never want to leave!
About: My wife and I are retired. We have vacationed all over the world and fell in love, with our private spot on Anna Maria Island, so much that we decided to invest here. We are either going to be on site or just a phone call away. Unlike renting from a Realtor or rental agent who handle another 1000 rentals, or from an owner who is 2000 miles away. Be assured if while renting from us there is any problem you will receive personal and prompt attention. Also rest assured that you will not ever find a vacation rental so MINT clean as ours! Our cleaning person works exclusively for us and must meet our extremely high standards. We also provide options that are typically not available anywhere else such as a $3000 water filtration system. Other rentals have high levels of chlorine in their water. Ours is filters and better for your skin and hair and general heath.
Why Bradenton Beach, FL, USA:
Location, location, location! Steps from beach on one side and bay on the other. Easy to walk to all the activities! Free trolley picks you up about 100 feet away and brings you anywhere you want to go on the island and to Sarasota! No need for a car. Fish off our dock just steps away!
