About Mary Baehr

We are Matt and Mary Baehr, and thank you for considering staying with us in our condo. Matt grew up in Ohio, and I grew up in Michigan. We met in college in Washington, DC, and 18 years later, we have three beautiful children. Because of work, we have lived in Ohio, Indiana, Maryland, Virginia and Florida.

When we moved away from Bradenton, we missed it so much, we decided to invest in a vacation rental property for us to use when we could make time to come back down, and to share with others. We've been renting it out for almost 2 years now, and would love to have you as our guest soon.

We were lucky enough to move back to Bradenton in December of 2016, so are back in the place we love. Please let us know if you have any questions, and we look forward to hearing from you soon.

Our condo is a great location for your next vacation. It is comfortable, with lots of amenities that will make you feel right at home. You can lounge in the beautiful heated pool, or grab a beach chair walk just one block to the beautiful white sand beach that Bradenton Beach is known for. The warm waters of the gulf of Mexico will revive your spirit, and the sunsets will take your breath away.

This property is a hidden gem here on Bradenton Beach.

  • 5 of 5

This rental is beautiful! Plenty of space, lots of windows, everything you would need for the beach! The pool was fantastic and there are many places around to get some food. My wife and I are very happy to have come here and we look forward to our next visit here when we come back. Mary has been nothing but gracious and helpful with our stay. If you and your family have the opportunity to stay here when at Bradenton Beach, you will be very happy!

Great location close to beach

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time. Easy walk to the beach, restaurants and ice cream store. The balcony is nice a nice spot to relax on. The pool is heated and not too busy since the complex is smaller

Nice place to stay - Jan 2018.

  • 5 of 5

We had a very nice stay. We checked in kinda late and Mary helped my wife through the steps to get into the condo as I was out selfishly playing 1st round of golf. One of the maintenance crew actually helped her get luggage up to the room - very kind of him. Being on the top floor was really my wife's only complaint, but we knew that going into our stay. We had a great time. Fishing out back on the docks and only a 1 block walk to a really nice long beach on the island. Mary provided beach chairs which came in handy. The place was very clean, we had plenty of room and it was great to be in trolley/walking distance to lots of restaurants.

Despite the cool weather, my wife visited the heated pool a couple of times to swim some laps. She had the pool all to herself :)

Mary was very responsive to phone calls, email and feedback. Would highly recommend staying at her place.

Great time on AMI!

  • 5 of 5

My wife, sister-in-law and brother-in-law stayed at Baywatch 8B from 12/27-1/1 and we had a fantastic time. We took full advantage of the quick beach access and all of the provided beach necessities at the property every day of our stay, regardless of the weather lol! We did the Dolphin watch tour out of the marina with Captain Jim and Roxanne, enjoyed meals at multiple restaurants within walking distance or just a short drive up the island or across the bridge. We had a fantastic dinner at The Blue Marlin for my birthday and we really ran out of time and meals to be able to hit everything that we wanted to.

The only negative experience was that there was no extra trash bags or toilet paper provided at the property

But other than that, I would highly recommend!

Clean, Quiet and comfortable!

  • 4 of 5

The unit is on the top floor.. an easy walk up, but a note to other potential renters. The unit has two very comfortable bedrooms and bathrooms. The best part of this unit is it is QUIET! No street noise or anything.. it is a solid building! The beach is right across the street, and the unit has beach chairs and everything you need for a beach day. Nice pool!

Amazing, relaxing, perfect

  • 5 of 5

The property was very clean and stocked well with beach towels and chairs and other toys for the beach. The beds were the most comfortable beds we had ever slept on while away from home. There were plenty of extra pillows and bedding. We loved how the condo was just one block from the Gulf and was such a short walk to the beach. Restaurants were also close and one was just the block away on the beach. We will definitely be returning!

Bradenton Beach

You will love relaxing by the heated pool, or down at the beach. Take a stroll to look for shells, or for the more adventurous visitor, you can try parasailing, deep-sea fishing, or jet-skiing with one of the local companies. If you like Mexican food, Wicked Cantina is just a short stroll away, or a little further south on Gulf Drive brings you to Bridge street, which has several GREAT restaurants. A few favorites on Bridge Street are The Blue Marlin (fine dining), and The Island Times (large menu with a great island atmosphere, try the wings). For desert, try the Creamery for the locally made ice cream.
