About Mike

Mike is friendly and has enjoyed raising a family, working, and living in beautiful Bradenton for over 19 years, only 2 miles away from this beautiful panoramic beach view property and has no plans to leave.

'Our goal & wishes at Salty Living Island Rentals is that you have what you need and sincerely enjoy your stay. When you leave take mostly good memories, a few sand dollars and many dreams of returning...'

Mike

Mike purchased this villa in 2012

Why Mike chose Bradenton Beach

Mike, owner of Salty Living Island Rentals & Property Services, LLC. (SLIRPS) Purchased this 2 story / 4-plex located right in the center of beautiful Bradenton Beach because of its location and proximity to the Beach, City Park, and the Bay. The property has plenty of room with 5 (on site) parking spaces, two assigned parking spaces for the upstairs villa, one accessible from the front (west) & / or one from the rear (east, separate entrance) of the building. Addition public parking is on the East side of the building a short 1/2 block away for weddings or day visitors.

What makes this villa unique

When you stay here you can park your car and forget it (recommended). Everything you need is right here within walking distance or a short free Trolley ride away. The sand dollar white beach has natural wading pools just past the surf. Sometimes there is no surf at all, which is popular with relaxation seeking rafters. Wave runners, sail boats, kayaks, beach scuba (ask me), and other water craft rentals are a short walk down the beach. Just let me know what type of water sport or leisure activity you wish for before or during your stay and I'll be happy to point you in the right direction…

Wedding parties can walk from this location to the Beach House restaurant (across the street) or the Gulf Drive cafe (across the street & just north on the beach) for all wedding arrangements...

enjoyable stay

  • 5 of 5
We spent a week in the two bedroom villa in Sept 2014 and found it to be exactly as described. The villa was not only very clean and well furnished it also was well stocked with plenty of towels in both bathrooms and a large amount of beach towels, beach chairs, cooler and a buggy. The large wrap around porch was also furnished and the view of the beach and gulf from the living room windows and front porch was great, on a feww occaions I watched dolphins swimming. we also found the owner Mike to be friendly and helpfull, we will be back next year

solid rental

  • 4 of 5
The property is good for the price point and is within walking distance of several shops and restaurants. Travellers should note the the second bedroom doesn't have a full wall and contains a Murphy bed (though comfortable). It may pose an issue for couples. As a word of caution, the owner request renters only provide 5 star reviews. He request any lower reviews be sent to him personally. Therefore, if you see any more recent reviews you cannot be sure if there are issues that aren't being reported publicly (or have been resolved). Just thought I would mention this odd owner request. It is nothing I have ever encountered. But it is a good budget rental.

Owner's Response: I'm sorry for the misunderstanding. I always ask my renters to call me directly with any issues so that we can address them right away. When you and your friends said that everything was great, I suggested that you put that on the web site. I'm glad you enjoyed yourselves.

We stayed with Mike for the first two years after our retirement and LOVED every second of it. For some reason we decided to try Venice next winter. We found a brand new home to stay in and although I am looking forward to another sunny, warm winter in the area I already miss the beach villa on Bradenton Beach.

Mike was the best landlord E V E R and the cute little house was adorable and plenty of room for us and also our visitors.

I can not say enough good about the villa and Mike and will miss it and remember it very fondly in the future.

Wonderful!

The owner was so helpful and gave us personal assistance. The house was beautiful, spacious and had everything we needed. Several restaurants are in walking distance and the beach is very accessible. We really enjoyed our stay and will definitely come back!

Great island getaway

  • 5 of 5
We'd never been to the Gulf side of Florida before and were hoping for a home-away-from-home on the beach. Salty Living and Bradenton Beach turned out to be exactly what we were looking for. Across the street from miles and miles of amazing gulf beach, ten restaurants within an 3 block walking distance, and all of the touristy things nearby too (fishing, boat tours, etc). If there's a downside it's that the convenience comes at the expense of a lot of traffic. The house sits right on the corner of Gulf Drive and the bridge to the mainland -- and this is a very busy road. The upside is first class viewing of the 4th of July parade and the trademark gulf sunsets every night. Hard to complain.

It should also be noted that the house is 4 units: 3 small units on the lower floor, and one large 2BR unit that has the entire 2nd floor. We stayed upstairs and loved it because we had parking and our entrance was from the back of the house, but I'm not sure I would say the same if I were staying below and my door opened out onto the street. The upstairs 2BR was great: spotlessly clean, nice sized bedrooms and bathrooms, a full kitchen, plus a washer/drier right in the unit. You can't say enough about the balcony either. We spent as much time on the balcony as a cold-weather people can stand in the Florida heat and humidity.

Lastly, Mike (the owner) is great. We had a small misunderstanding and he took care of it quickly. He's nearby, stops in to on his visitors, and will bend over backwards to make sure your stay is perfect. I also commend June (the property manager). Check-in was super easy and she was very pleasant. Rent with confidence. Mike & June will take care of you.
