THE BEACH IS CALLING...

Bradenton Beach Cottage Rental Photos and Description

2 Bed, 1.5 Bath, Expandable To 12 When Sister Property Is Booked As Well.

*NOTE: If you cannot find availability for this unit, please check Unit B, located at the same address under VRBO listing 506799. The layout, rooms and rates are the same.

Thank you for considering my home which has been recently updated to provide the warmth and feel of a true beach cottage. Wooden ceiling planks have been added along with pine beach chic cabinets and decor. I put many hours into the design of the home to provide a feeling of tropical relaxation. The location of the duplex home is within walking distance to the beach but tucked away from the hustle and bustle of beach traffic and other vacationers. The home sits between the gulf beaches and the bay, but is truly in the middle of everything Anna Maria Island has to offer. Free Trolley rides (every 20 minutes) allow easy travel through out the island to restaurants/bars and historic sights. Located in the city of Bradenton Beach, which has a smaller more private beach in comparison to others nearby. We are also within walking distance to the bay which offers a baseball and basketball court, playground, and a small area to launch canoes or kayaks.

LIVING SPACE...

The elevated property has been lovingly restored in 2013, boasting a full kitchen with standard size stainless steel appliances and granite counter tops. There are flat-screen TVs in every room, Blu Ray/DVD player, and free wireless high-speed internet access throughout the house.

Accommodations

The master bedroom has a memory foam queen bed and an en-suite bathroom. The second bedroom has two twin beds that can be converted into a king bed, and is off the living/dining area with private access to the second shared bathroom. The family room area has a sleeper sofa that can easily provide sleeping accommodations for 2 additional guests.

Amenities

Central Heat and AC, BBQ Grill, Washer/Dryer, LCD Flat Screen TV's, Cable TV, Blue Ray/DVD Players, Microwave, Blender, Toaster, Full Kitchen, Linens and Towels provided. Housekeeping provided upon request (additional fee). 2 Bicycles are available along with beach towels / toys. This property will accommodate up to 6 adults and has onsite parking for multiple vehicles, RVs or boats.

For Larger Parties

Check out the sister property which includes an adjoining door to this property, expanding to sleep up to 12 guests.

It's off the beaten path, literally tucked away between the gulf and bay. Plus, it was a home that needed a complete renovation. I love home improvement projects and interior design is a passion of mine. This property gave me the opportunity to wipe the slate clean and create exactly the beach house I wanted.

There is a beach trolley stop within a short distance of my place, making it easy to roam across the island without much effort. Plus there is a small private park one street over and on the bay which is nice for my son to play with his nephews. Of course, walking to the beach is wonderful as well.

Great Rental on Anna Maria

This rental lived up to it's description in every way. Great location in a quiet friendly neighborhood close to everything. The decorating and amenities were above our expectations. The trolley stop is close by as well as the beautiful beach and it's a very short walk to the city park located on the Intercoastal waterway. We would love to stay here again.

We enjoyed our stay very much. The unit is open with high ceilings in kitchen/living area which gives it a sense of airiness -- a very cute place with nice upgrades (appliances, countertops and Keurig come to mind!) that you normally don’t see in a short-term rental. Immediate area is quiet and residential -- one block walk to bay, two block walk to Gulf/beach. 15-20 minute walk to Bridge Street activities or take the trolley. Anna Maria Island is fully developed but pretty laid back -- no high rises, plenty of good restaurant choices, bars and entertainment options or just plop your chair down, put your toes in the sand and enjoy a good book!

AMI surprise B-day party

My two sisters and I rented this lovely little house on Ave. B on Anna Maria Island for a week in January. The place was very clean, tastefully decorated and everything was in order. We all appreciated the updated kitchen, floors and appliances. The beds were great, except I ended up sleeping on the pull out sofa, and although I slept very well, the mattress was a disaster and needs to be replaced. We ended up buying a sharp kitchen knife, (which we left) and a Mr. Coffee maker. Also, there needs to be a larger frying pan and boiling pot. We made due, however. There was a shortage of "cocktail glasses" and so we used the little, plastic "pebbles" cups for our drinks. But our mind was on other things so that was not a big problem. Good thing I thought to bring a bar of soap since there was not one in the bath, although there was liquid hand soap.We appreciated the bountiful paper towels and toilet paper in the laundry room, and adequate supply of plastic garbage bags since we were giving a B-day party for our mother and had a lot of party stuff to discard and clean up. We liked the neighborhood and proximity to the beach. We would recommend this place and may want to rent again.

We wanted to book a quick get away for the holidays.The property was nicely decorated and clean. The location of this place is nice. Everything, including the grocery store is close by and there is something for all ages. Our sons played basketball for hours at the park while my husband and I relaxed at the beach. We were sad to leave and will surely return next year.

Best Trip to the Island yet.

Just returned from my vacation on Anna Maria Island and I feel completely relaxed. The island was wonderful as was this property. 2 blocks to the beach was amazing and there was plenty of parking. The house was better then described in the listing/photos and Karlene went out of her way to ensure my questions were answered.

Thank you so much for the week that I needed.
