Overview

Bradenton Beach Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4) ** Heated pool Is On The Beach

Anna Maria Island is the First Barrier Island south of Tampa Bay. Bradenton Beach is at the south end of the Island. To the west, The Gulf of Mexico offers miles of spectacular, uninterrupted sugar sand beaches and emerald waters. To the east, Anna Maria Sound, a mangrove lined bay, has calm docking and mooring areas, a municipal pier, boat launches, nature trails and the Florida Intracoastal Waterway.

Bradenton Beach is just an hour's drive from Tampa International Airport. The Sarasota/Bradenton Airport is sixteen miles to the east. Interstate 75 is forty minutes away. Access from the mainland, to the east (Bradenton) is by bridges on Cortez Road W (Rte 684) or Manatee Avenue W (Rte 64). From the south (Longboat Key) via the bridge over Longboat Pass. The Island is seven miles long and only a few blocks wide, providing the sounds and feel of the water wherever you are.

The condo has been completely renovated - even some walls were moved. The floors in the bedrooms are carpeted, the rest is 18 inch Italian Terra Rosa porcelain tile. Panel doors, over-sized baseboards and trim, recessed lighting and faux wall finishes contribute to the British-Colonial inspired decor. Gulf View is located directly on the Gulf of Mexico, at the west end of Historic Bridge Street. it is an oasis - a quiet, peaceful, comfortable space where you can relax and rejuvenate.

The open-concept living-dining area has two bamboo framed upholstered love seats, swivel barrel chairs so you can enjoy the sunsets, an entertainment center stocked with books, board games and a 42' Hi-Definition TV and DVD player. There is a variable speed ceiling fan. Sliding glass doors open to a screened-in balcony, overlooking the beach, which provides Gulf breezes, the sound of the surf, spectacular views of the water and each evening a beautiful and unique sunset. Watch the diving pelicans and, if you are lucky, catch a glimpse of a dolphin.

The dining area has a rattan glass topped table with six chairs. There is a pass-thru bar to the kitchen. The chandelier has a dimmer switch - for your mood lighting.

The kitchen was gutted and reconfigured. The wall between the kitchen and the dining room was raised with a pass-thru bar. Short upper cabinets with see-thru glass on both sides were installed over the bar. All new cabinets, appliances and counter tops were installed throughout. There is an east facing window with a top-down, bottom-up pleated shade enabling you to get light from the top while otherwise having total privacy. The kitchen is gourmet equipped with dishes, flatware, pots, pans, bake-ware, utensils and small appliances. Whether you want a cup of coffee, freshly squeezed orange juice or a full gourmet meal, whatever you need is there!.

The master bedroom has direct access to the balcony. A natural wicker bedroom suite has a king-size bed with a premium mattress, dresser and two night stands. There is a 37' HD TV, a DVD Player, a large walk-in closet with custom organizers, a variable speed ceiling fan and an en-suite bath.

Since #101 is an end unit, the second bedroom does not have windows on the catwalk. There is complete privacy. A south facing, outside wall window has a room darkening, top-down bottom/up custom shade. Outfitted with a white wicker suite, two twins beds with premium mattresses, a night stand, chest of drawers and dresser. It is decorated with beautiful linens, has a variable-speed ceiling fan and a wall-to-wall organized closet. The tub/shower full bath is one step from the bedroom door.

Both bathrooms have adult height vanities, handicapped height toilets, full width/height mirrors, exhaust fans and recessed lighting. Each has all new fixtures and was decorated to co-ordinate with its adjacent bedroom. The vanities have ample room with drawers and under-sink storage.

The screened-in balcony runs across the front of the building, directly on the Gulf. It is furnished with a 42 in glass/wicker table and four chairs; two mesh, hi-back swivel rockers and a side table. There are two ceiling fans. You have an unparalleled view of the Gulf of Mexico and a front row seat for the nightly show at sunset.

There is an in-unit full sized washer and dryer. The unit has its own central air conditioner and furnace with thermostat that you can set to your comfort level. The entry door has an all wood louvered screen door with a lock. You can enjoy cross ventilation with security and complete privacy. This is a secured building with a key-pad entry door. There are two assigned parking spots under the building. Free Wi-Fi.

Anna Maria Island provides a daily free trolley that runs every 20 minutes from 6:00 a.m. to 10:30 p.m. from the Anna Maria City Pier on the north to Coquina Beach on the south. Trolleys offer both air conditioned and open-air seating. The trolley stop is right outside the door.

A convenience grocery store is located directly across the street. A Supermarket, (Publix), is about 7 minutes north - it is reachable by trolley as are most restaurants and shops on the island. There are ten restaurants and two premium ice cream shops within a blocks walk of the condo. No need for a car.

Beach chairs, umbrella, toys and rafts are provided. There is parasailing, jet-skiing, yoga on the beach and many other activities nearby. Get in the car and drive a short distance to golf, theaters, malls, botanic gardens, art galleries and more.

Shopping at Armands Circle. Art fairs and community special events happening all the time. One block to public fishing pier.

Nearby attractions include Ringling Museum of Art, Selby Botanical Gardens, Disney World, Epcot, and Sea World to name a few.

The beach an pool were absolutely gorgeous! But There was a slightly rowdy family

  • 4 of 5

Condo had strong smell of smoke on arrival but with air fresheners was much better. Furniture was comfy an lanai was wonderful every night! Had everything we needed for small meals in kitchen. The locker with added water toys was wonderful with all wee needed. We did add a few more sand toys to the collection. The live music on bridge street an the moose was wonderful when at the locations but that we could still hear it on lanai an one bedroom till at least 10 every night was not as wonderful! Beach is picture perfect! Like a postcard! We saw dolphins every day. An manatees all but one day right off The beach! We also saw stingrays an bunches of fish! It was a wonderful trip!

Owner's Response: I am sorry you experienced a smoke odor when you arrived. The unit was vacant the week before you arrived. However, there were maintenance people in doing painting and up-keep. One of them must have smoked leaving the tell tale odor. It is amazing how that odor lingers and is very offensive to we who do not smoke! I have taken the necessary action to insure this doesn't happen again. The rules of the condo association prohibit smoking anywhere on the premises - inside or outside. It is designated a smoke-free environment. My sincere apologies and I hope you will come again.

Gulf View Unit 101

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at a number of Gulf Front places on AMI. We enjoyed our week in this updated, clean and tastefully decorated condo Everything was there, from the first day's coffee to dishwaser detergent. Beach supplies for all ages were also available. .The balcony looks down at the pool and an unobstructed view of the Island's beautiful sunsets. All updated appliances and keyless entry. (No risk of losing the keys). It is within a short walking distance of food and geat entertainment. However, if you spend more of your time on the beach you cannot hear anything but the waves. For pet owners there is a small beach access area where your animals can go for that quick walk right next door.

Gulf View Condo

  • 5 of 5

This condo is located steps from the beach with a nice pool facing the gulf. View from balcony is awesome. Owner is very easy to contact if needed and responds back right away every time. My family and I have stayed at Gulf View for over 10 years and rented this unit the past 2 times. Already booked next year here also. Every year is filled with new ventures. This year there were plenty of dolphins everyday swimming along the beach. Also seen some manatees. My family and I used paddle boards and followed along with them. Kids had a blast. Very family friendly place. Very clean also. Plenty to do. All within walking distance. No need to drive anywhere if you don't want to. I recommend staying here if you want a stress free relaxing vacation. Very enjoyable and can't wait til next July. Thanks Shirley for sharing your vacation home. The Vizzari family

Excellent Choice!

  • 5 of 5

We were searching for a fun place to getaway and chill and this vacation rental definitely filled the bill. We even brought our dog! The gulf front view is amazing; beach and gulf were excellent. The previous reviews are spot on, so read 'em!

Close to restaurants and shops. We had a car (nice shaded/covered parking for two cars) so we walked to many spots and drove to others. The unit was very clean, well maintained and decorated nicely. Everything worked well, we had no issues, but had confidence the owner would have handled things promptly had we encountered any problems. She was easy to work with, friendly and very responsive. You can't go wrong with this vacation spot! Highly Recommended!

Our favorite restaurant finds:

Sage Biscuit (over the bridge, worth the drive, great breakfast place!)

Slim's Place (Philly themed sports bar on the north end, has very good food)

Wicked Cantina (tasty Mexican, can walk from the condo)
