About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

This is a beautifully updated clean condominium inside and out. The complex just completed a major exterior renovation. You will love our professionally decorated two bedroom condo.

Shell Cove Condominium sits directly on the beach. No kidding, four steps and your feet are in the sand! Wake up to the sound of waves breaking right outside your front door. Watch the sunsets and dolphins play as you sit in the living room. This is truly Old Florida.

Enjoy Anna Maria Island's white sandy beach, waterfront restaurants, quaint shopping and even a local theater.

The free trolley has a stop across the street and invites you to visit the entire Island.

Please feel free to email or call me for any questions you may have.

Check in time is 3:00 p.m.

Check out time is 11:00 a.m.

We do allow one pet under 20 pounds. We reserve the right to have the pet removed to a kennel if there are noise complaints from other owners/renters. There is a pet fee that is non-refundable of $200. The guidelines for size of the animal is a condominium association rule so no exceptions are permitted.

About Courtenay

We are from Cazenovia, NY and have been vacationing on the island since 1981. We also have a place 2 miles down the road from this rental property.

Courtenay purchased this condo in 2009

Why Courtenay chose Bradenton Beach

Anna Maria Island gives you the Old Florida feeling that high-rises and new construction cannot deliver. The location is tough to beat. 4 steps out the door and you are on the white powder sand of the beach!

What makes this condo unique

Enjoy the free trolley that stops right across the street. There are many very unique restaurants like Mr. Bones BBQ @ 3000 Gulf drive or try the new Caribbean feel of Jam-Rocks @ 1800 Gulf Drive. For more restaurants ask us for we address.

Just as advertised

  • 4 of 5

The condo was right on the beach just as advertised. It was amazing to go to sleep at night and wake up in the morning to the sound of the ocean. The condo was nicely appointed with pots, pans, towels, sheets and all kinds of beach toys. I especially liked the location as it was very convenient to get to the grocery store, shops or restaurants.

Great location, needs updating

  • 3 of 5

My family stayed here for 6 days. It was a great location, close to restaurants and right on the beach. The inside had a nice layout, but needed some detailed cleaning. The couches had visible black dirt marks and the towels were ripping. If the condo gets a good scrubbing and updated furnishings it would be great.

Wonderful location, close to Bridge Street shops and eateries! The ocean view from the condo and sunsets were stunning! Definitely a place we will remember when we return to AMI next year.

Extraordinary Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our week on Anna Maria Island was extraordinary. Shell Cove is absolutely perfect. Our check-in was seamless, everything was clean, neat, refreshing. The condo had everything we needed. We cook quite a bit while vacationing and the kitchen was well-equipped. The beach/ocean was truly right outside the door ... and the entire complex was very-well maintained. The other occupants (some of which were owners) were super-nice and prompted several nice dinners on/around the island. The one and only downside to this condo is the mattress in the master bedroom; it was rather noisy as if some plastic material was built into the underside. It was a nuisance with the slightest movement. However, I have contacted the owners about this. We have already booked Shell Cove for September '17. I don't think we could have found a better complex!!!
