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.

Mary Baehr purchased this condo in 2015

Why Mary Baehr chose Anna Maria Island

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.

Soon to retire

  • 5 of 5

Mary, what an excellent place you have. You're not renting a condo, you're renting home. By that i mean it felt like someone's home, not that neutral or old smelling different people every week, sanitizer lingering in the air, sand in the corners, etc. You have windows on all four sides of the condo and beautiful curtains flowing when the windows are opened with the surf breeze. A private balcony to leave the two doorwalls open and enjoy the morning sun. We loved the kitchen that has a pass thru to the dining room so you can see the TV or talk to everyone else while making breakfast or dinner. Two huge walk in closets for as many clothes as you can bring. Also chairs, nets for the kids, and beach towels included. I left a small cooler for drinks on the beach so add that to your list.

The Island is like no other we visited so far. You can see everything. All buildings are limited to 3 stories. Shell filled beaches everywhere (literally) that have complete open access. Old town feel when you drive to the north end of the island.

All I can say is, WE'LL BE BACK SOON.

Thanks for providing an excellent place for us to stay and maximize our pleasure time.

Owner's Response: It was a pleasure having you, Tim! We are so glad you loved the island (and our condo) as much as we do. We hope to have you come visit us again soon!

Great condo convienant to both the beach and the bay

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay even though it was cut short by Hurricane Irma's approach. Comfortable unit with everything you need while away from home. The pool is nice and was never busy. My son and husband enjoyed fishing from the dock and the beach is just a very short walk away. Mary was great to work with us because of the storm coming. I would highly recommend this condo for your getaway!

We loved our stay at this condo. It was very comfortable and well equipped. I had an issue with the TV that I created and the owner replied immediately to my request for help. The beach is beautiful and a short walk away. Would definitely stay here again.

Beautiful Property close to the beach!

  • 5 of 5

My family (including my 2 year old son and in-laws) traveled to Anna Maria island for the first time this summer. We were looking for a place to stay that would give us enough space to spread out and was within walking distance to the beach- this was perfect! The condo definitely felt like home. The Baehr's also offered many things we needed for a day at the beach (sand toys, chairs, umbrella, coolers) as well as a pack in play. The washer and dryer was a plus as well. We had a wonderful time on Anna Maria and enjoyed the condo.

Anna Maria Best

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed the condo stay very much. The place was nice, clean and very roomy. The bay and the pool was nice and so close. Talk about close, the beach was just a short walk from the condo. The weather was nice. A great plus was the cost for the week was fantastic. Of course the shopping is great there on the island and the restaurants have very tasty meals.

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

Very comfortable and spacious condo with everything we needed. We have always stayed directly on the beach so this being a block away was a concern for us but it was actually good, it is a very short walk and the beach was never crowded which we enjoy.

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.
