Recent Bradenton Beach reviews

  • Perfect week at Shell Cove #5

    "It was a perfect week that we spent at Shell Cove #5. The direct view of the beach from 2 rooms is fantastic. There is nothing better than to walk right out of the door onto the beach in the morning and to watch the birds and fish.The beach in that area is unique clean and quiet. Several restaurants and bars are in walking distance. In the appartment we loved the nice kichen and bathroom. Both seem to be brandnew and/or very well mantained. The owner (Joe) was very friendly and caring. Every email was answered promptly. It was our first trip but for sure not our last to that place. Shell Cove #5 has some more fans in Germany now!!"

  • Ideal place

    "Recently remodeled with granite counters and everything you could possibly need. Absolutely beautiful location. You can watch the sunrise on the back screened in porch over the intercoastal and sunsets across the street on the beach. Once you're there, no need for a car, since you can ride the Anna Maria bus for free. Close to Cortez, so easy to see sites close to Anna Maria in Sarasota/Bradenton area like Ringling museum, etc. lots to see and do in the area. Loved the paved trail across the street ..,great for biking or walking in a shaded area next to the water."

  • WOW!!!! Better than We Imagined!!!

    "After reading the other reviews I booked the place for the July 4th holiday week.. We dreamed for months about our Anna Maria Island vacation. From the moment we stepped on the porch overlooking the Gulf we were greeted with the vision of crystal clear aqua-blue waters and white sands. I never imagined it this beautiful! Every morning we sat drinking coffee and were visited by dolphins swimming close on the beach...Every morning!... One was even in hands reach of me while I was floating around one day.. We even saw a small sea turtle and found shells just as gorgeous as the ones in the shops. The place was very clean and had all that was necessary..Arrangements were simple and easy. Air conditioning was amazing after coming in from the hot days. Trolley stop right down the street was convenient for getting down to Bridge Street and back. The sunsets we witnessed painted the surroundings with the most vibrant pastels we have ever experienced! I will never stay any place else!!! Vacation Rental... very affordable...Vacation experience...PRICELESS!!!!!!!"

  • Great View, Great Location, Great Time!

    "From beginning to end, this trip was seamless. Owner was fantastic with answering questions before and during our stay. Location is walking distance to all the shops and restaurants in the area, we never had to use our car. Parking is limited, however we never had an issue since we never used the car to go anywhere. Beach view is wonderful; condos on either side do not block your view of the water, and the sunsets are fantastic. Water is never choppy, so grab a float and relax! Great for kids, plenty of seashells to collect and little fish to watch. Entrance to beach is right off the stairs to your condo, however be aware that it is also a public entrance so expect foot traffic throughout the day as others come to play. Places close at 9 or 10 PM so it got quieter around that time. Condo was well maintained. Kitchen upgrades were excellent and well stocked with utensils, plates, cups, etc. Depending on your party size, bring extra toilet paper and garbage bags. There are a lot of beach towels available for your use! Outside deck recently got a facelift and the furniture is great out there. There is a step down on the edge of the deck so be aware if you have little ones (or forgetful adults) that they need to be reminded to step down or they'll take a tumble. Shocked that when we stepped foot in the condo we weren't met with sandy floors. Condo was clean and well lit and ceiling fans were great. Living room got hot around afternoon due to no curtains to shield the heat, however it cooled down once sunset happened. Restaurant Recommendations: Island Creperie for breakfast (love the atmosphere & friendly staff), Freckled Fin for lunch/dinner (great location, outdoor entertainment, decor is typical beach and friendly staff. Food was worth the price!) Island Time for dinner/drinks (outdoor location, bar and entertainment, not a lot of lighting but food was good!) Judy's Restaurant on Cortez Road is great for a trip away from the beach. Shrimp basket was amazing, breakfast omelets were delicious. (Be sure to check their hours, as some days they close at 2PM). Red Barn Flea Market has a nice atmosphere and lots of food choices. Typical flea market with nothing too grand, however it was a nice walkthrough. Strongly advise not going to Gulf Drive cafe. Found hair in food and management and service was terrible. Read Yelp! reviews before you go! Again, impressed with this condo and will definitely return! Thanks for the wonderful break!"
