This cutely decorated, quiet, private, comfortable guest cottage is unique and affordable. Just 5 miles from the beautiful Gulf Beaches, less than one mile from an aquatic costal preserve with bike and kayak trails. It is very comfy, you won't want to leave. It is a nice neighborhood behind a 1921 historical home featured in Sarasota's SRQ magazine. We are perfectly situated between Tampa, St Petersburg and Sarasota.

It's just my wife and I, no children, so the rentals are very quiet and offer alot of privacy. I have lived on the property for 18 years, and in Bradenton for 20. I recently stepped down Area Director for Young Life, a national youth ministry, as the Area Director for Manatee and Sarasota Counties. I am now a Yacht broker with Galati Yacht Sales on Anna Maria.
Jim Nelson purchased this apartment in 1994
This is the cheapest and nicest way to visit this area. The home is in NW Bradenton, which the more desirable neighborhoods in Bradenton, it is only 5 miles from the beach, but only one mile to the river and the bay. Ther are great bike rides (two free beach cruisers) and excellent backwater and ocean kayaking .
We were hoping for the cottage unit, but it was already rented for our spring break, we are both teachers. So we decided to stay in the upstairs unit. It was perfect. The owners were both helpful, and they also respected or privacy. The unit was very nice and convenient to the beach. It is in a very nice neighborhood and the property is well maintained. We will be back for our Spring Break next year.
We just returned home from visiting this Cottage/Studio apartment. We are both in our sixties and found the unit quite satisfactory and as advertised. The location is great with respect to going to the beaches and shopping and the neighborhood is quiet and very attractive. The owners were both very gracious and willing to share their knowledge of the area. We actually enjoyed our morning coffee and afternoon or evening drinks outside the entrance doors. It is just fine for two people.
Very clean but be warned the kitchenette includes toilet, shower and sink in a very small area so not very pleasant or healthy. When we asked about the seating area we were handed, over the fence, 2 chairs placed on the drive where we could sit, not as advertised. Good area quite near beaches but would definately not stay there again.
Very disappointed. Bungalow was very nice, but when we went to use the barbeque grill , we were told that we were" invading their privacy". We felt very uncomfortable after that and only went fron rental to car. They advertise a barbeque grill and gazebo, but we were not allowed in yard. They complained about our dogs barking and their dogs barked when they were not there and upset my dogs. Would not recommend and will never go there again. Wife not friendly at all.
The owners, Jim & Natalie were absolutely the best hosts!! They made you feel so welcome and would do anything to make your stay enjoyable! The Guest Cottage was very cozy and quiet and the perfect location for our trip! It was 5 minutes from beautiful beaches! We loved our stay and would definitely return here again!
Charming little efficiency apartment in a great location. Very quiet residential area with a beautiful deck and gazebo to spend time outdoors. Very affable owner who made my wife and I feel very much at home. Will be returning in the future.
We are home to the Pirates spring training facility with the stadium only 5 miles away. We are also only 5 miles from IMG Acadamies.
