Located on a deep water canal with open access to the Intercoastal Waterway, Tampa Bay, and Gulf of Mexico. A short scenic walk across the Cortez Bridge to some of the best beaches in Florida on Anna Maria Island, this condo is our second home, so it is fully equipped with everything you might need during your stay. A 40 foot boat slip is available at no extra cost. We set it up to be lived in and enjoyed when we get a chance to slip away from our lives and jobs, which are about an hour away. We absolutely love this place and want you to make it your home away from home year after year. It features hardwood floors, tile, carpet and a newly renovated kitchen. Beautifully furnished, it has flat screen TVs with cable and free wifi. Just off Anna Maria Island in historic Cortez less than mile from the beach. Enjoy coffee and breakfast on your front or back screened porch overlooking the water where manatees often swim. Then, maybe head out for fishing, relaxing, or head over to the beach for some sun bathing. The condo's heated pool is just steps away. Other condo amenities include hot tub, fitness room, tennis courts, 2nd heated pool, clubhouse, and convenient elevator access from your 2 covered parking spaces.

I grew up in Bartow, FL, which is about an hour and a half away. My husband is from the Atlanta area. We now live in Lakeland, FL, where he practices law, and I stay at home with our two children who are currently 4.5 and 6.
Ashley Bracken purchased this condo in 2013
We purchased this condo because we both love to be on and near the water. Our boat is housed in nearby Bradenton Beach marina. You will often find us on it on any given weekend, fishing or just enjoying family time.
Our dear friends, purchased the condo next to ours as a second home few years ago, so we began visiting them. We decided that we too would like to have a second home on the water, so when this condo came available for sale, we moved very quickly on making a purchase so it didn't slip by. We couldn't be more pleased with this community and the people who live here. Having dock space for our boat was another big seller for us.
This has been a fabulous condo for spending the winter. The location is amazing -- a short bicycle ride or walk to:
* the beautiful beach just across the Cortez bridge
* fresh fisherman seafood markets
* great restaurants of any type
* produce markets
After spending the winter here, I would definitely choose to be OFF the island mainly due to the congestion. Walking and bike riding to any place over there is the way to go. We have had such fun having dolphins play around our sailboat. Sarasota Bay is beautiful for sailing as well as Tampa Bay.
Ashley has always been immediately reachable when we have had questions and most helpful. We recommend wintering here to anyone. We would not hesitate to come back, but we wish to go to different locales each winter. Oh yeah, the neighbors here are super too! Mostly year round folks with a handful of snowbirds.
This condo is nicely appointed with everything one needs. The grounds are well kept and attractive. It is situated in the last remaining fishing village in Florida which means the local restaurants serve the freshest seafood possible. The beautiful Anna Maria beaches are just minutes away along with excellent restaurants, boutique shopping, lovely walking trails and magnificent sunsets. Boat rentals and fishing opportunities are very convenient. I would definitely recommend this property.
