Overview

Cortez House Rental Photos and Description

Pool, Canal with Dock and walking distance to the beach! 2/2/

Flamingo Nest is located on beautiful Flamingo Cay and is a 2/2 with canal views from every room! This pet friendly home is convenient to the Bradenton/Sarasota area for shopping and restaurants but yet only 2.8 miles from Anna Maria Island and its famous beaches but priced affordably. From your private dock you can access Palma Sola Bay and Anna Maria Island and then on to the Gulf of Mexico!

The home boasts a king master suite, a queen guest room, guest bath and another small guest area with a futon. Relax on the recently purchased and comfortable living room furniture and enjoy the Flat Screen TV, CD player and Wi-Fi Internet access.

Palma Sola Causeway beach & boat launch area are within walking distance from the home. There you can enjoy kayaking, jet skiing, paddle boarding, Horse Surfing and just plain old walking your dog as it is the only pet friendly beach in the area! Not enough to do? Walk to Robinson Preserve, a 600 plus acre salt marsh, home to jumping Mullet and hundreds of other species of fish and marine life. Hiking paths, bike trails, kayak and canoe waterways, bridges, picnic spots, mangrove forests and a 53 foot tower with an incredible view of Tampa bay await you.

Finally had enough? Take you boat back to your private dock and relax by the large caged pool with your frozen Margarita in hand! If you bring your boat we must be notified and your trailer must be of a size to fit in a standard garage. Trailers cannot be left in the driveway!

RELAX and ENJOY!!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Frankford, Mo. Beth Trautwein and Richard Scott (not the governor) had a most pleasant staff. Heidi, (15 years) and Mr. Finkerbean (7 years) felt right at home and we think your selection of this neighborhood is just perfect-we may be back before you know it. Your neighbor John was so helpful and sailing was very lovely-first time we could anchor and just go out when we wanted. Hope you have many happy years here!

Lovely house in a perfect place

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I plus our two children (7 & 9) had a fantastic two weeks at this lovely house. The house was very clean when we arrived and has everything you need to enjoy your holiday. The kitchen, whilst maybe not being ultra-modern, was in keeping with the age of the house and was clean and included all the pots, pans and equipment you could need. The pool was very clean, well maintained and heated - my kids loved being in there. Fishing from the dock was wonderful and the family of manatees in the canal kept us entertained!
There's some wonderful beaches within a short drive and included in the garage are beach chairs and lots of beach toys for all ages. There was also two bikes which would be great for a ride around the local wildlife preserve, Robinson Preserve, which took us a little while to find the entrance to - if you're driving, you can park in the car park just over the bridge onto Perico Island on the left hand side. The wildlife in the area is amazing, we had ospreys and vultures circling most days. Do yourself a favour, grab a lunch to go and sit at the picnic tables just on the causeway from Bradenton - the birdlife there is fantastic.
We would like to thank both Ellie and Bob at Gulf Island Consulting and Management for all their help and their friendly but professional manner - it makes all the difference when booking from afar to deal with friendly people. We all loved our stay here so much that we are hoping to book again for next year, 3 weeks this time.

Owner's Response: Sarah and family,
We are so glad you got to meet our Manatee friends. They are amazing gentle creatures and I swear they bring good luck with them so you should have a great New Year!
Robinson Preserve is just one of the many incredible things to do around Anna Maria Island IF you ever get tired of the wonderful beaches. It is hard to imagine a better place to vacation.
Please do come back and visit and if you have any questions about the area in the future do not hesitate to call Ellie or Bob for information as they are a wealth of knowledge and as they will tell you, their job does not stop when the home is booked. They are there to assist you all the way through your vacation!

Owner's Response: Patricia and Family,
The pool is huge and having it screened it is one of our favorite features. No worries about mosquitos or any other pesky bugs even in the evenings! Couldn’t agree with you more about the shopping being so close and thanks for the compliment on Ellie and Bob! They are the best!

NICE DOCK, SCREENED IN POOL, SUNSET to SUNRISE!!

  • 5 of 5
WOW!!!! What a find! ... and for the price?!! You can't beat this 3 bedroom 2 full bath Florida house on the canal! Our boat (19ft) fit perfect tied to the dock! The pool was so clean, it was nice to jump in after being out on the boat all day! There are 2 separate Florida rooms that you can open up to the lanai, pool area. The garage is very large! Perfect to store our trailer in! The kitchen had every utensil you could every imagine, even ones for the grill. And we can't forget about the living room!! If you don't know anything about the most comfortable couches ever... you need to come here and check them out! The bedrooms were all so nicely decorated and had comfortable beds. The air conditioning kicked but on the hottest days! The location of this property is the best as well! Whether its boating, shopping, eating, or the beach you have everything within 5 miles of you! This house is amazing and I hope you come back really soon! Thank you guys, it has been a true pleasure for me and my family!

Owner's Response: Dawn and Family,
We are so glad the Dock worked out for you with your boat. There are so many wonderful areas to explore that are close to the house it is hard to see all of them! I am sure you managed to get around Palma Sola Bay and Anna Maria Island and the Intracoastal Waterway to Sarasota. Just a couple of my favorites!
The house is made for comfort so glad you got the time to relax while you were here also and the convenient location does make it easy to get to everything you need when you do leave!
Come back to visit soon!

Two months of bliss!

  • 5 of 5
Both retired, my husband, 50 lb. dog & I spent Feb. & Mar in this rental. It was clean, had comfortable furniture throughout and an adequately equipped kitchen and linen closet. The pool was nicely heated & weekly maintained by a service, equipped with pool toys for all ages, beach chairs were supplied and 2 bikes were in the garage. The electric eye garage door opener worked nicely. . a treat to park our car inside! Location was the best. . near shopping, the beach and best, the dog beach where our water dog ran freely thru the surf & swam with horses as well as other dogs. Next year plan on having the grand kids visit.

Owner's Response: Nelson and Joyce,
I am so happy you enjoyed your stay AND that you are coming back to visit with us again. We love repeat visitors so just let us know if there is anything we can do for you. I just think that is so cool that your dog swam with the horses at the dog beach! What a great experience for him! I wish I could have seen that one! It is so nice to have the dog beach so close to the house for folks like you since it is the only dog friendly beach. Hope you got a chance to try Robinson's Preserve with your doggie as well as it has some great hiking and biking trails as well! Thanks again!

Great getaway

  • 5 of 5
This 2-bedroom 2-bath home is one of the better bargains among the VRBO group in this area. With an enclosed lanai and pool that allows all of doors to open to the pool area, the house proper becomes spacious and lighted. The furnishings are very good, with the beds having excellent mattresses (an absolute must and seldom found!). The kitchen is well equipped with all of the necessary utensils for a family of 4-6. All-in-all, an excellent bargain for the price.

Owner's Response: Frank,
We do try to keep the price reasonable as we realize some of the prices are really getting expensive, especially when you get close to the island. Glad you slept comfortably also and enjoyed the pool area being “part of the house”. It is the thing I enjoy the most about the home as well.

Nearest Beach

Palm Sola Causeway or Anna Maria Island
Car: necessary

Anna Maria Island is located on the Central West Coast of Florida nestled between the tropical blue waters of the Gulf of Mexico to the West and Tampa Bay to the North. Once a best –kept secret among local Floridians, it is now known as a vacation favorite among local, national and international travelers. From honeymooners to Hollywood film crews, youngsters to the young-at-heart, people from around the world have discovered what’s awaiting you – Your Piece of Paradise, 'An Island In The Sun'…

The island consists of 3 cities, Bradenton Beach being the southernmost, Holmes Beach in the middle and Anna Maria City on the Northern tip. Each community has its own distinct character but all have that relaxed old Florida Charm with unique and charming shops and restaurants.

Anna Maria Island has miles of sugar white sand beaches, sand dunes, sea oats and Australian Pines lying between the Gulf of Mexico and the Intercoastal Waterway. This destination is a natural choice for tropical vacationers looking for golf, tennis, water sports, shopping, plus many cultural and historical attractions. Located close to all the major attractions, yet far from the maddening crowds make the Gulf Island Beaches the ideal vacation spot.

Enjoy a sunrise overlooking Tampa Bay and a picture-perfect Florida sunset all in a day…

You need never leave the island to find fun and relaxation. Our island is only 7 miles long and no more than a few blocks wide which leaves you with sounds of waves and visions of the sunset in every location. Enjoy a day at the beach and watch the kids play in the sand. Walk along pristine beaches and dine in award-winning restaurants, Enjoy fresh grouper sandwiches on a pier and sipping martinis while enjoying live music. Go shopping in our specialty shops and boutiques all along the island. We even have a Free Trolley to take you where you want to go. The friendly environment and endless activities will keep you coming back for more. Hop aboard and experience island paradise!
