About Joel

We are newlyweds and this is our first 'home' purchase together.

Joel purchased this condo in 2009

Why Joel chose Anna Maria Island

We decided to purchase this condo for the unspoiled beauty of the beach and old Florida charm of the island. We looked at properties from Clearwater Beach all the way down to Siesta Key and this condo took our breath away from the second we saw it. The complex is intimate and relaxing with spectacular views even from the covered parking. Once we walked inside the condo the first time, we NEVER wanted to leave so we decided to call it our home away from home! This truly is paradise at its finest...

Guestbook comments from the owner

We enjoyed our stay here. Such a beautiful condo & we enjoyed every minute here. Thank you for sharing your beautiful condo! This is the 3rd year in the complex, just different condo.

Perfect location for a perfect Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

What a great place for a week! This is an amazing condo. It was well stocked with the necessities. Very comfy beds and nice large closets. The location was perfect for our family ( two adults and two young adult children and their spouses.) The north end of the Island is definitely more laid back if that is what you prefer, but we found this location to be a perfect fit for us. Outside the front of the Condo was the beautiful, relaxing beach...we saw Dolphins in the morning and amazing sunsets in the evening. Out the other side of the Condo was lively Bridge Street. We shopped, walked, fished on the Pier, and spent almost every evening in a different restaurant with live music. Everything we needed was within walking distance. The guys golfed on the mainland, but the girls only left the Island once, and that was a trolley ride to St. Armand's on Longboat Key. We have stayed in many VRBO/HomeAway rentals over the years and I must say Joel is exceptional when it comes to communicating with his vacation renters. We felt he was just an email or text away for any questions or concerns. I would highly recommend this "Waterfront Paradise!"

This By Far Has Been The Best In Every Way!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at several condos all over Florida. This by far has been the best in every way! The owners truly care about your comfort and not just taking your $! This was the first time I've rented a condo and didn't have to buy all the daily necessities. We even had little shampoo & soaps! I'm a big germ/clean freak. There was absolutely nothing here that made me feel wasn't a 10! The view is AMAZING! We felt like we were at the beach even when we were sitting around watching TV. We will def. be back. I have never relaxed so much as I have here! could go on & on! This was the 1st Christmas Eve Mass and it was very very nice. Everyone here is so friendly. The beach is amazing and not crowded.

Balcony View Was One Of The Best

  • 5 of 5

We usually do not stay this far south on the island and were concerned about the noise and busy public beach close by.

But we were pleasantly surprised that the beach was almost deserted and the lively atmosphere was fun.

It was nice to be able to walk to several restaurants and places just to have a drink & listen to a live band.

The music did stop at a reasonable time.

The heated pool we did not use but was a nice amenity.

The balcony view was one of the best we have had on the island, so restful sunrise through sunset.

We love AMI and have been coming here for years, we love it and think it is one of the most beautiful places in FL.

Our Favorite So Far

  • 5 of 5

This is our fifth time renting for a week on AMI. The condo is our favorite so far. Comfortable and nicely furnished and decorated, and the location is perfect.

We cooked Thanksgiving dinner for 8 people which was a challenge in the small kitchen, but we managed!

One of our favorite things about AMI is being able to park our car the day we arrive and then never having to move it. We take the free trolley everywhere! Event to Publix, even when shopping for Thanksgiving dinner. Our 13 year old loved being able to go out by herself and take the trolley up to Publix to pick up a couple of things - something there's no way she could do where we live in suburban Tampa.

Owner's Response: Kate, We are so glad you enjoyed your stay at Our Waterfront Paradise. We think we have the perfect location on the island - especially with so much within walking distance even the trolley stop right in front of our complex. Cooking Thanksgiving dinner in our unit is very impressive - glad it was large enough to accommodate. Looking forward to seeing you again! Joel

Loved the Place

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay. We were within walking distance of the wedding venue and family. We enjoyed morning coffee on the balcony while watching the dolphins swim by every morning! The condo served served as a great place for family to meet during the day and make plans for the night.

Everyone that came to visit loved the place - thank you Joel and Denise for sharing your little piece of paradise with us. It was so worth it!

Located in the heart of Anna Maria Island’s historical district, shops and restaurants are just a short walk away. Just across the street in the island's historic Bridge Street, discover an interesting mix of cute shops and great restaurants. At the end of Bridge Street are the pretty Bradenton Beach clock tower and a long wooden pier that extends out into the waters of the Bay.

If you enjoy fishing, it's a great spot to cast a line and catch your lunch or just take a stroll and watch the sailboats and cruisers pass by. Bradenton Beach Marina is just a short walk if you want to rent a boat. Enjoy a five star meal at one of the fantastic and unique restaurants on the island. Make a stop at the ice cream parlor for a tasty treat! A miniature golf course is just ½ block away.

Directly in front of the condo, on Gulf Drive, is the Island Trolley Stop which offers free transportation around the island.

Golf: There is a golf course on the island and 45 more courses close by.
