Laura Barnes purchased this house in 2009
Having grown up in central Florida, the west coast has always been family vacation destination. Anna Maria Island, with it's white sandy beach and crystal clear warm water became our favorite place. The island has a relaxed vibe and a family atmosphere that we love.
Our location is fantastic! With views of the Intracoastal Waterway AND the Gulf of Mexico from our deck, plus walking distance to many restaurants and shopping of all kinds you will find this to be the perfect destination for your island vacation!
TO ALL OUR FRIENDS AND RELATIVES.......................
I AM MAKING A RECOMMENDATION FOR THE PLACE WE LIVE IN FOR 2.5 MONTHS EACH YEAR . . .FEB 1ST TO APRIL 15TH. WE HAVE STAYED A LOT OF PLACES IN THE LAST 14 YEARS, HOWEVER, NONE COMPARES WITH THE PLACE WE HAVE HAD THE LAST 3 YEARS.
NOT ONLY IS THE PLACE NICE.........2 BEDROOMS.........1.5 BATHS.........FULL LAUNDRY...........A SCREENED-IN LANAI THAT WILL HOLD 40 PEOPLE . IT HAS TWO KAYAKS, ALONG WITH ALL THE BEACH CHAIRS, UMBRELLAS, WAGONS, ETC.,ETC.
IT IS LOCATED AT 200 25TH STREET, BRADENTON BEACH, FLORIDA, 34217,AND IS KNOWN AS "BARNEY'S BUNGALOW" 1 BLOCK FROM THE BEACH.
WITHOUT QUESTION, THE OWNERS, JEFF AND LAURA BARNES ARE THE MOST ACCOMODATING LANDLORDS WE HAVE EVER EXPERIENCED. YOU DO NOT HAVE TO GO THROUGH A REALTOR. RENTALS MAY BE MADE BY WEEK OR MONTH AND I'M PRETTY SURE FOR A FEW DAYS.
IF THE WEST COAST OF FLORIDA IS YOUR DESTINATION, CONSIDER ANNA MARIA ISLAND, BRADENTON BEACH AND BARNEY'S BUNGALOW !!!

Our stay at Barney's Bungalow far exceeded our expectations! It was impeccably clean and offered all of the at home conveniences and amenities you could imagine. We enjoyed the elaborate collection of pool toys, chairs, umbrellas, towels and an awesome wagon to carry it all in - and the location is just steps to the beach! Our two year had more than she could play with. The screened in below patio was awesome, and we definitely took advantage of the washer/dryer - first time we've come home from a vacation and not had loads of laundry to do! We had the pleasure of meeting the owners who were very friendly and accommodating. We cannot wait for the opportunity to stay here again!
This was our first time to Anna Maria Island and as a family of four, we looked long and hard at all the accomodation but Barneys Bungalow stood out for it's location and facilities- it did not disappoint in any way. The accomodation was spotless on our arrival and was full of useful extras such as Tupperware pots for picnics on the beach and lovely soft bath and beach towels. The outside shower downstairs when returning from the beach was great and the laundry area was fully equipped with powder etc. the downstairs outside eating area is great for barbecues and enjoying the weather. The beach trolley was so useful and again there were numerous beach chairs, toys, snorkels and umbrellas and it didn't feel like we were taking so much to the beach as it all fitted in the trolley.
Barneys location is just as it looks on the website, a few minutes walk one way to the Gulf and to the river/estuary the other way and with the free trolley bus stop just round the corner so you can explore the rest of the island without the car.
Laura welcomed us on arrival and trusted us to lock up on departure and always responded to any questions very quickly.
I really cannot think of a bad thing to say about Barneys and when we return to the island I will certainly try to stay there again.
Stop your search now! You have found the perfect rental for AMI. I could go on and give you plenty of detail on all that is included in this property but just read the other reviews because it is all true. The owners attention to detail on everything inside and out of the property is exceptional and not often found in the majority VRBO rentals. If you love to grill out (and I do) the place also has a gas grill. It is located in a quiet neighborhood full of friendly folk close to everything. The owners are great people who are genuinely interested in making your stay a great experience. I plan on going back for years to come!
We had such a great time at this location. Laura was quick to respond when there were any questions that I had prior to our stay. When we arrived she gave us a warm welcome and made sure that if at any point during our stay we had questions that she was there to help. The house was equipped with everything we needed so all we had to bring was cloths, and bathing items. The location was perfect, a mile or less to stores and restaurants. A binder that Laura made in the house made it so much easier to pick a restaurant that fit our needs! We ate at; The Beach House, Oalaff's Ice-cream, and many more fine places that I can't remember the names of were all delectable! If you are looking to be welcomed like you are family, relax and see sunrises and sunsets from the house (you can see both sides of the island from the deck), and be in close to everything, this is the place for you!
Enjoyed the bungalow, the location and the family weekend!
I have been using VRBO for the past few years because I always find such affordable, awesome vacation rentals like Barney's Bungelow for my family. From the location (short walk to the beautiful, uncrowded beach), to the amenities (the beach wagon was put to good use! We lacked for nothing!), to the clean,perfect bungelow itself (the outdoor shower is a great feature)! We were content with spending our days in the beautiful gulf swimming with the dolphins, but there is plenty to do out of the water. My 19 year old daughter loved shopping at St. Armands Circle which was less than 15 miles away along the beautiful Gulf Drive!
Laura was wonderful and very helpful. Our only downside was having to leave! We'll be back!!!
