This beautiful beach vacation home has no stairs to contend with, unlike many others on the island. It has a stunning brick courtyard with large outdoor picnic area. We have a fishing dock where you can catch 'the big one'. Then barbecue it on our gas grill! The interior of home is just a breathtaking as the outside. It includes a big Master bedroom, big Living area, Full kitchen, Lanai with large screened sliding windows, and full bathroom. The big Bedroom has a plush California King bed,.This is bigger than a normal King size bed! Pillow top comfort! 1 full Bathroom, Glass door shower. The living room doubles nicely as a bedroom with a PREMIUM LAZY BOY Queen Sleep sofa. This is the most comfortable sofa bed made! Sleeps 4 comfortably. Big screened Lanai is enclosed with sliding glass/screened windows. We even offer an inflatable mattress for that unexpected guest. Entire condo has WiFi. In the Lanai we have a power outlet for lap top, over head fan, oak dining set for 4 and lounge seating for another 2, and is a great place to dine or to just relax! Living area with big 46' plasma TV. Unit is bright and cheery. Top end Tommy Bahama furnishings. Freshly remodeled and ALWAYS MINT, MINT, MINT clean!
Our new ground level condo is better than other beach vacation rentals. Even though we call it a one bedroom, with the Queen sleep sofa it very comfortably sleeps 4. Most other rentals would call this a two bedroom unit. You may not find another spot so close to the beach and bay yet so peaceful and with such ambiance. The serene setting is only steps from bay and beach. Nothing like the sea air and sound of the waves and palms to relax and unwind to. You are almost certain to see Dolphins from our dock! If you like to fish this is fishing heaven! On some days the big fish are so plentiful you can catch fish them with a net! Don't worry, we provide fishing gear.
Every square inch of this vacation home exudes attention to detail. Maybe I'm biased but I think the person who decorates our properties, my wonderful wife, is the best interior decorator around. I think you will agree that the unit is spectacular in every way. You may never find a more serene setting! You may never want to leave.

Absolutely Great Vacation Spot!
Left on 08/08/2012 for a stay in August 2012
Thank you again for your lovely vacation home! My boyfriend and I had an amazing time on Anna Maria Island and can definitely see another visit in our future. The condo was extremely cozy, and perfect for two people! We cooked delicious dinners (fresh fish!) and enjoyed the outside patio almost every night. The bikes and fishing equipment made our trip absolutely wonderful -- we rode almost everywhere and the pier had great fishing. Great restaurants around the area as well! The condo was very clean and tidy when we arrived, and we especially loved the fruit trees that surrounded the condo :) We also loved the walk to the beach just steps away and 1 minute walk to the pier... it was nice to stand on the street and see the beach and pier at the same time!
Overall a fantastic stay, and we can't thank you enough! It was a quiet and relaxing week... exactly what we were looking for. I would definitely recommend your condo to others and will keep you in mind if we decide to visit the island in the future.
Thank you again!

Great Family Fun!

Thank you for the use of your wonderful condo. We really enjoyed our week on Bradenton Beach. There was plenty of things to do for our family of five (three teenagers). Everyone was happy shopping, sightseeing and just relaxing on the many beaches in the area. The condo offered the luxury of feeling like a home instead of a hotel. Being able to do laundry (swimsuit and towels) was an added bonus. We will definately be coming back in the near future.
Wonderful Place to Relax and Enjoy Your Vacation
April 16, 2012
My wife and I have come to Anna Maria Island for several years and this is the nicest place that we have stayed. The unit has been completely refurnished and everything from the appliances to the flat screen TV to the pillow top king size bed are brand new. The unit was spotless when we arrived. Outside the unit is a charming courtyard complete with picnic tables with umbrellas and a gas grill. It is located less than a one minute walk to the beach in one direction and another one minute walk to the bay in the opposite direction. It is located near historic Bridge Street where there is a nice selection of shops and restaurants. The owners are extremely friendly and live on site to take care of any concerns that may arise. It is a great place to stay.
Thanks for the perfect 5 Star review. We are glad that you noticed everything was new and look forward to having you back again. You will be surprised at the additional $10K investment we made to add a new lanai that has a new seating area and dining area. With long sliding glass windows, and new Tommy Bahama blinds, you can enjoy this room even on those few chilly Feb nights and even when it is raining. We have to agree that the location is like no other. Steps to the beach on one side and our dock on the Bay on the other. We also now have new bikes so next time you come you can ride the paved trails that go to Coquina Beach and Coquina Baywalk for the best Beach and Bay side scenery in all of Florida. We also appreciate that you noticed how much we care and are just a 3 properties away if needed. Many properties are handled by either a Property Manager who handles another 100 or so properties or an owner who might be a 1000 miles away. We are nearby and always available to handle any problem, should there ever be one, promptly.
For the health conscious, we have installed a $3000 water filtration system. Unlike other vacation rentals on the island that use public water which is heavily treated with CHLORINE and other chemicals our filtration system filters all this out. So, when you bathe, cook or, drink, know that you have the purest and only chemical free water on the island! Not only is this healthier in every regard but, women will notice that their hair is fuller and skin is softer after washing as their are no chemicals to make the hair limp or to dry out skin!
My wife and I own this property free and clear of bank mortgage. We guarantee the property is NOT for sale. Thus, you have peace of mind knowing it will be there when you arrive and not foreclosed or sold like many now a days. We are retired and spend most of time living nearby. If you have any problem or questions we are always prompt to assist. We make every effort, proactively, to ensure your stay is nothing but pleasurable memories without any hitches. We take pride in our properties. We deal with our guests directly. You will never speak to a machine. All of our properties are tastefully furnished and decorated with no expense spared. You will find all the amenities of home. Just bring your flip flops and get ready for a GREAT vacation. All of our reviews are PERFECT 5
