Overview

About the property

4-Bedroom, 3 Bath, with Gulf Views

Go to Bottom of Amenities to Take a 3D Virtual Tour throughout this magnificent home! Amazing! Just like being in the home!

This is a fully-equipped vacation rental. Just bring your clothes and toiletries! Everything necessary for a great vacation is provided, and we mean everything.

The beach is a 2-minute stroll from the house. Beach carts, chairs, beach towels, and umbrella(s) are provided.

The elevator makes bringing in groceries and luggage a breeze - it is accessible from the carport to all living levels.

The pool is a private, saltwater, heated pool (temperatures can be set up to 84 degrees).

All bedding and towels are provided. Need something special - just ask.

The kitchen is fully equipped with all the cookware, dishes, etc. Every small appliance is provided. We love to cook and we equipped the kitchen as if we were going to live there. If you don't see what you need, we probably have it - so just ask.

There is dining seating for 12 inside and 6 outside. The master bedroom suite seats 6 on the veranda facing the Gulf of Mexico. Great for watching spectacular Gulf sunsets or just chilling out. The serene blue-green Gulf waters...the brilliant orange and blue sunsets...the smell and sound of the surf...will lower your blood pressure and make you feel good to be alive!

Enough parking is provided for 4-5 cars.

My husband and I love the beach - Negril, Jamaica and Ocean City, New Jersey are our favorites. When we retired, we looked for a place that had the best of both beaches - we found it in Bradenton Beach, Florida. It is safer than Negril, and less crowded and less commercial than Ocean City. My husband says it reminds him of the Jersey shore in the early 60's.

The beach is 170 steps from our door (my gait!), and is never crowded, not even during the peak winter season. It almost feels like it's our own private beach.

There is plenty to do here. The restaurants are great. Everything on the Island is accessible via the free open-air trolley that runs by our house every twenty minutes.

There are fishing piers and marinas for those who like to fish. They say Anna Maria Island has the best fishing on the West Coast of Florida.

Like to shop? World-famous St. Armand's Circle and Sarasota are minutes away. Prime Outlet (130 designer and brand-name outlet stores) is nearby, but not too close to threaten your vacation budget!

Have kids, or just want to act like one? Busch Gardens in Tampa is about an hour away, and Disney World 2 hours.

Great home, perfect location, and hospitable owners!

  • 5 of 5

This home was absolutely perfect for our spring vacation traveling with another couple and our combined 3 kids. The home was incredibly spacious and comfortably furnished, the elevator was a nice option for moving luggage and groceries, and the pool provided a great alternative for the kids between trips to the beach just a short walk away. We really enjoyed talking with the owners, Jen and Joe, who live next door. Given our unfamiliarity with the island, their recommendations and advice were helpful and appreciated.

Those in our group who had to keep up with work while traveling really appreciated the fast Internet and the wifi that extended onto the porch and by the pool. Made responding to emails more enjoyable!

The location of the house was ideal for us - the free trolley was a short (half a block) walk from the front steps of the house, and the beach was just beyond that. We found the trolley to be a little slower at times than just walking to the nearby restaurants or attractions. Surprisingly, we didn't find many dining options that really wowed us so we really appreciated the well stocked kitchen. The house is on a quieter street, with parking in a more private drive behind the home. With younger kids we never had to worry about them while outside and in the evening we had plenty of room to play, throwing a football or just enjoying the weather.

We've rented a number of vacation homes in the past, but this was our first visit to Anna Maria Island. Hands-down, this was far and away the cleanest, and best cared for, house we've ever rented. I have to imagine it's hard to keep up with the wear and tear that comes with a weekly rental property; it is very clear that Jen and Joe take a lot of pride in their home.

We were very lucky to find this rental, and have already booked our trip for the same time next year. It hasn't always been our experience that a home is as described or pictured online. This home lived up to the high expectations we had based on the description of the home, and the reviews others had given. I hope you enjoy your stay as much as we did!

Perfect Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our spring break family vacation here could not have gone better. Sometimes discovering a new place can take some time to get use too, but this was not the case . The house offered us everything we needed. Everyone was comfortable and there was plenty of room for our 11 month old granddaughter to safely explore. Having the pool was great for her because she did not take well to the sand and Gulf water. I'm sure that will change. My daughter, son-in-law and son did enjoy the beach and discovering Anna Maria at night. The location of the house is excellent because you are close to shopping, the shuttle and the heart of the island. I got to my first spring training game which was a lot of fun. I recommend seeing a not so popular team play the Bucs because it was not so crowded which gave us the ability to sit at the Tiki bar, for a while, and watch the game.

A vacation gem!

  • 5 of 5

The perfect family vacation! Our family of 7 (3 kids plus the grandparents) have found the a true vacation gem! This rental property seriously has everything you need for a great family beach get away! From beach gear, to fully stocked kitchen, to warm water pool and everything in between! The location could not be better! A quick one block walk to the beach and our own private pool that we had to drag our kids out of! The views from the balconies are superb! Easy access to restaurants, grocery and other amenities! The house has everything you would need and want for every day comfort! The owner's are so kind, incredibly quick to respond to any needs or wants and are dream neighbors! We've rented several properties through VRBO including one in the Georgia mountains, the Colorado ski area and the panhandle of Florida. This one was our favorite, hands down!

A one hour drive from the Tampa airport, Bradenton Beach and Anna Maria Island is the ultimate destination for a truly relaxing vacation with our family. We would not hesitate to go back. If you are thinking about renting this property, go for it! You will not be dissapointed!

Great Week

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful family vacation here. Five adults and 2 grandchildren ages 8 & 3. The beach is a VERY short walk and owners have EVERYTHING you need for the beach including a nice wagon to bring it along. Everything we needed to cook, plenty of towels and a VERY nice washer & dryer. The house is exactly like the pictures, spacious, clean and comfortable. The swimming pool was a perfect place to relax and let the grandkids swim. We would highly recommend this home.

The Delaware Gang

  • 5 of 5

We really hate to have to tell you how great our stay was. There's nothing more we'd like to do than to keep this our little secret. We have NEVER been treated as specially as we were on this vacation. Jen and Joe are without a doubt the most honest and friendly people we have ever rented from. Their hospitality and absolute joy for making our stay as comfortable and enjoying was too much to believe. They thought of everything you could need on a beach vacation. We are looking forward to staying with them again next year. The house is unbelievable. Just a beautiful beach house. We felt like we were home from the minute we arrived. What a great find! We've stayed on the island every year for the past seven. We aren't looking for any other place next year. We're staying here!
