Bradenton Beach Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage 2 Bdrm Sofa bed Tub Sleeps 4-5 Sliding glass/screen rm Air/water purifir

Anna Maria Island, Bradenton Beach vacation cottage rental Had full makeover with no expense spared!

This STAND ALONE, VERY CHARMING, cottage is in a very peacful setting with huge brick courtyard. This is not like most other vacation rentals that require you to climb 1-2 stories. This is a stand alone ground level home!

We have just invested in a new kitchen, bathroom, lanai, living area and bedrms. I.e., new granite counters. New Whirlpool dishwasher. New stainless sink, new faucets, new soaking tub, sinks, faucets, lights, italian tile, designer decor, high end beds & mattresses stove/oven. Upgraded refrig/freezer. Virtually every kitchen tool, like home, making Kitchen fully stocked. Everything is MINT, MINT, MINT!

Entire home has tile floors in every room including lanai!

Screened lanai with sliding glass doors for those chilly nights.

Rate includes unlimited calling anywhere in USA & Canada, Wi-Fi, Digital cable, 46 plasma TV & flat screen in bedroom.

You will love our white powder sand beach just around 30-40 steps away. Enjoy aqua blue green crystal clear water! Walk along the beach just a short way and stop at the great restaurants & live entertainment right on the water. If you like fishing, we have a dock just 40 steps away too.

If you like going for walks, there is a marvelous paved trail across our street that goes for about 2 miles, or so, along the beach. This is a great paved boardwalk to walk or bike along every day especially around sun set! The trail is covered by weeping pines & palms and is simply breathtaking.

Just a quick walk down the road is The Coquina Baywalk at Leffis key where you will enjoy acres of boardwalks built along the Bay. Spectacular scenery.

You will enjoy a wide variety of restaurants all within walking distance incl our favorites on the Pier. Last time eating out on the pier we saw 3 dolphins & a Manatee!

You must see to believe.

There are two bedrms. Sleeps 4 comfortably but with a big queen sleep sofa it will sleep 5 if necessary. There's a big full bathroom. Unlike most rentals with just a shower, this has shower and soaking tub. Big Lanai. Living area. Kitchen. Unique extras include; pillow top mattresses. The best nights sleep so you can spend more time enjoying the day! Large closets including cedar closet in 1 bedrm.

We provide everything including beach chairs and towels. You need only bring your tooth brushes & flip flops. All windows including Lanai have new Tommy Bahama white blinds. Lanai has new comfortable dining set. My wife does all the interior decorating. She has a flare for making everything look so bright & beachy.

The furniture in this home is top of the line Tommy Bahama style. Unlike other owners who rent from a thousand miles away, & are at risk of bank foreclosure, we live nearby most of the year and own property free and clear of bank mortgage. Sadly, many vacation properties are at risk of bank foreclosure. Have peace of mind when you rent from us.

Area Info

Anna Maria Island

Anna Maria island is just seven miles long and is made up of 3 small cities: Bradenton Beach,

Holmes Beach, & Anna Maria at the north. No matter which direction you come, you must cross water

via a bridge. At the southern tip is the most sought after area of Bradenton Beach. You can head north from Sarasota travel on to Longboat Key and cross over a draw bridge on to Bradenton Beach. There are also two other draw bridges from the main land of Bradenton to come onto Anna Maria island. One way is via Manatee Avenue (SR 64 ) & the other is via Cortez Road.

Watch an incredible sunset with your favorite beverage. Kids of all ages would enjoy a visit to Bradenton to see Snooty the manatee. The area of Manatee/Sarasota counties also has great off shore fishing, jet skiing, kayaking, golfing, tennis, shopping, museums, & art galleries to explore.

Be sure to observe all the turtle watch rules as the Ridley turtles are building nests from early May & baby turtles are hatching on our beaches. You might even go on a turtle watch tour with our local turtle lady. Look in the paper for her schedule.

The entire island of Anna Maria has many reasonably priced award winning restaurants.I.e., the Sign of the Mermaid Restaurant has not only delicious food as in breakfast, lunch, but the owner is a triple time National Pie contest winner. Be sure and stop by.

Of course, check out the local newspaper for the latest events about the island. The A.M.I. SUN is just one. It's free & had lots of info you can use on current happenings.

Holmes Beach is famous for the Beach Cafe, Skinny's a small local hamburger, hotdog storefront plus along Gulf Drive you will locate the island grocery store, Publix and several island strip centers with your last minute beach items such as snacks, lotions, toys, rentals, etc.

OFF THE ISLAND

Mote Science Lab is just a short drive off the island and on to Longboat Key just a few miles to the south. Both you and your kids will enjoy a visit to this 'hands on' science stop. This is where many of the rescued injured animals, occasional birds, turtles, etc are taken to recuperate and then are returned to nature.

ESPECIALLY for kids:

G WIZ is located in Sarasota near the VanWizzel a block off of Tamiami. This is a state of the art Science hands on museum. Well worth the visit. Check it out on line to see what they are featuring. Call for cost.

Day trips:

Disneyworld, Epcot Center, the Everglades, visit close by Sarasota (the cultural center of Florida) with the Ringling Museum, Saint Armand's, and much more!

It's just a 15 minute drive to St. Armands circle. Designer shops and world renowned restaurants just a few examples of what you will experience.

My wife and I are retired. We have vacationed all over the world and fell in love, with our private spot on Anna Maria Island, so much that we decided to stay. We own this property outright. No bank mortgage means you have peace of mind knowing you don't have to worry about the Bank foreclosing before your vacation. So, we are either going to be on site or just a phone call away. Unlike renting from a Realtor or rental agent who handle another 1000 rentals, or from an owner who is 2000 miles away. Be assured if while renting from us there is any problem you will receive personal and prompt attention. Also rest assured that you will not ever find a vacation rental so MINT clean as ours! Our cleaning person works exclusively for us and must meet our extremely high standards. We also provide options that are typically not available anywhere else such as a $3000 water filtration system. Other rentals have high levels of chlorine in their water. Ours is filters and better for your skin and hair and general heath.

Location, location, location! Steps from beach on one side and bay on the other. Easy to walk to all the activities! Free trolley picks you up about 100 feet away and brings you anywhere you want to go on the island and to Sarasota! No need for a car. Fish off our dock just steps away!

The master bedroom has a special California King bed. A little biiger than regular king bed. Bathroom is private to both bedrooms and provides a soaking tub. Full sleep sofa in living room. Big Lanai with massive sliding glass windows for fabulous airflow. Or keep windows closed and enjoy the daytime privacy of one way glass! Private off road parking right in front of the home.

This home has had a total face lift which includes new kitchen, bathroom, bedrooms, windows, doors, blinds and all furnishings and appliances! Gas grill, Washer & Dryer, Well equipped kitchen, Fresh linens, Beach chairs, umbrella, fishing gear. Bikes available for $25/wk nominal fee for our nearby strategic alliance partner! Outside the home is a big courtyard that is surrounded by tropical plants, palms, and fruit trees. Just steps away is our fishing dock.. We provide the fishing gear too! Over $5000 invested in water and air purification. We spared no expense to provide purest drinking water instead of the chemically treated public water offered at other vacation rentals. We also spared no expense to water and home bound allergens. provide state of the art air purification for those with asthma or allergies. These are just two of the things we do to make sure your vacation is as healthy and pleasant as possible!

GREAT VACATION SPOT!

  • 5 of 5
What can I say, we could have easily become "beach bums". The cottage was wonderful and the courtyard was so relaxing. Everything was within walking or trolley distance. Food on the island was awesome. More than we expected. Thanks Mark for a very relaxing memory. Hated to leave.

PERFECT VACATION

  • 5 of 5
Dear Lily & Mark,
Thanks so much for the use of your cottage.It was so bright and immaculate.We seldom ate out because everything was there to cook a full meal.The location was excellent,just steps from the beautiful beach.We walked each morning along the shaded pathway along Gulf Drive.On Sunday morning much to our surprise there was a great outdoor market set up along this walkway.We were able to pick up some beautiful fresh fruit and vegetables.
Not that we had any problems,but was nice to know that the owners were living on site if you did.
Once again Mark and Lily,thanks so much for your hospitality.

BRADENTON BEACH COTTAGE

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I were looking for a beach property with easy beach accessibility. This is definitely the place. We spent 18 days here and our days were spent sun bathing and then we had easy walks to the many nearby food and drink establishments. The unit was well maintained and provided a flat screen TV and internet access. We also used the private courtyard for outdoor relaxation. The unit also has a grill and bikes for the renters. Owners are pleasant and always just a minute away for any questions. Anna Maria island has all the charm of the old school Florida beach scene.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your 5 Star review. We try hard to offer the cleanest place on the island. Our exceptional location by the beach and bay and all the fun activities, while still being in a peaceful setting, is a rarity on the island. Many of our customers return several times. We hope to see you again even if only to drop in to say hi!

- Internet - Flat screen TV - Private Courtyard - Bikes - Grill - and a free trolley which runs the island on a regular basis. You can park you car and walk almost everywhere. Publix is a short drive and Anna Marie island has all the charm of old school Florida.

A PERFECT LOCATION!

  • 5 of 5
Dear Mark, Thank you so much for allowing us to stay at your little piece of paradise. It’s been over six years since we have been to Anna Marie Island and it is still as beautiful as we remember it to be. Your place has the perfect location. The street is only one block wide and it takes less than a minute to walk to the beach or walk to the dock on the bay. It’s a very quiet street even though it’s only a few blocks to walk to Bridge Street to enjoy a good meal at one of the many restaurants. The cottage was very clean and cozy. It was very comfortable for Sandy and me and there was plenty of room for the kids if they had come with us. We enjoyed walks on the beach, collecting sea shells and watching sunsets each evening. There is something magical about Bradenton Beach that makes you not want to leave and will keep you coming back. We will be back! Thanks Mark.

TWO AMAZING WEEKS IN PARADISE!

  • 5 of 5
From the first moment I saw the picture of this property, I fell for it. Lucky for me, it was available the dates I requested. Mark was so easy to stay in touch with, and really was so serviceminded. He kindly answered any questions I had before my stay and after we had arrived. The property was exactly as described and very well maintained. We absolutly loved the nearby beach (it is really a wonderful beach), sunset, the restaurants and shops all within walking distance. We also drove off the island now and then for some sightseeing. But we fell in love with the relaxing island style on this island. We had such a great stay, that we wanted to stay another week. Mark was kind enough to offer us a stay in another cottage that he own just a few steps away. I had two amazing weeks with my girls in a true paradise! We will for sure come back to AMI and Bradenton beach and would love another stay in any of Marks properties. We made memories for a lifetime!

Location. location, location. Our most sought after area is just about 30 steps to what has recently been named to 1 of the top 10 beaches in USA. Our laid back island & culture is unlike any other. No high rises, fast food chains, etc. are allowed here. Of course you can drive a mile off the island and find every fast food chain know to man kind if that's what you like. Where can you go and have a private dock to fish from on the Bay, and enjoy spectacular sun rises about 40 steps on one side of property & white powder beach & warm emerald water about the same distance in the other direction? This truly is paradise. Not to mention our secluded court yard enveloped by lush tropical garden & several palms, avocado, bamboo, banana trees is simply wonderful & inspiring. We have a nice gas grill & private picnic area. Unlike other rentals, never any hidden fees for grill gas, biweekly trash pick up service, wi-fi, unlimited calling, digital cable, etc. So nice you may never want to leave!
