You've looked at the rest now book the best. Book directly thru this site, in order to secure the dates you want and, at our current great rates. Read on to see what sets us apart from the rest!

This beautiful beach vacation home has no stairs to contend with, unlike many others on the island. This beautiful vacation rental features a stunning brick courtyard with large outdoor picnic area. We have a fishing dock where you can catch 'the big one', & just 45 seconds to walk to! Barbecue your catch on our gas grill!

The interior of our home is breathtaking. 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 a comfortable sofa bed in comparison to other sleep sofas. Sofa sleeps another person, in case you have an unexpected guest. Screened Lanai is enclosed with sliding glass/screened windows. 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 has a big 46' wide screen 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 can sleep up to 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 or beach! 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.

I can go on and on about how great this beautiful vacation rental and location is but, please see our reviews included on this site. Here's one of many PERFECT 5 STAR customer reviews for this property:

Absolutely Great Vacation Spot!

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 less than a 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!

Lindsey and Mo

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!

Why Mark Owner/Manager chose Bradenton Beach

* ZERO BOOKING FEE

*ZERO DAMAGE WAIVER FEE

* ZERO HEADACHES. When there is an issue, it is personally, promptly and politely handled by the owners (my wife or I). Unlike most rentals who operate through an agent who handle way too many other rentals and hate to deal with "problems".

Perfect Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time! The unit was the perfect size for my boyfriend and I. It was clean and very nicely decorated. The location was also great. Just a couple minute walk to the beach and to the bay. We would come back in a heart beat.

Owner's Response: Glad you had an amazing time at our beautiful vacation rental. This gorgeous unit features a California King bed (bigger than normal King) and premium designer mattress and furnishings. We always appreciate reading reviews from people who notice our cleanliness difference. We learned first hand, when whenever we took vacation at the "best" and "cleanest" places that their definition of "clean" was not even close to ours. Most of all, I am delighted that you will be returning again as our guest!!

Lovely comfortable beach cottage with thoughtful amenities

  • 5 of 5

Well appointed, close to the beach, and walking distance to many fun venues on quaint Anna Maria Island. Many extra touches (e.g., two USB ports to recharge devices on each night stand!) that set this cottage apart. The decor was lovely and made us feel at home at the beach. Thanks Mark and Lily!

Great Location, close to the beach and historic area.

  • 5 of 5

Can't say enough about how comfortable, clean and beautiful our unit was. Not only was it in a good location, but the atmosphere, decor and cleanliness was better than most Hotels. Along with that the convenience of having chairs and an umbrella makes it even better. We just had to get up and grab our towels, chairs and umbrella and hit the beach. I'll visit again with no hesitation. Thanks!

Nice and very convenient!

So close to the beach and very convenient for someone flying in and not carrying all the necessary beach gear with you. I hope to return!

Perfect piece of paradise!

  • 5 of 5

This property was absolutely perfect for my little family! Mark and his lovely wife were onsite when we arrived and she took the time to show us around. The little personal touches were an added bonus...snacks, treats, and a nice bottle of wine! The beach was right across the street, just a 30 second walk and the trolley stop was close too. We enjoyed sitting on the dock at the end of the street in the mornings and late evening. The courtyard at the property was nice and inviting with plenty of seats and gas grills. The king size bed in our unit was so comfy! I don't think we have slept that good anywhere we have been away from home. The property is beautiful inside and out and I highly recommend staying here! Big thanks to Mark and Liliana for an amazing week!

Tucked away in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

First off let me start by saying it looks a little bigger in the pictures so I personally wouldn't recommend 3 people but it's perfect for two! (Not a complaint, just throwing that out there in case some people don't like to be crowded:).)

My husband was deployed shortly after we got married and I planned our very delayed honeymoon all by myself. I couldn't be happier with this place being my choice to stay! We BOTH loved it! The owners were so accommodating and the condo had everything you could need. Just get some food for your stay and you are good to go. There was even a cute little mirror/tweezers set. It's like the owner knew I would forget mine like always! ;) The decor was perfect for the beach experience, and a generous amount of beach towels and beach accessories were included. No views of the beach, but the little courtyard-like area with palm trees lit up did just fine! That was one of my favorite parts! There are things like a rolling cooler that's a perfect size to take to the beach, umbrellas, and even beach toys if you have a kiddo. Our much needed week of paradise after several months of being apart was complete with such a great place to stay. The owners are fantastic and we plan on coming back to one of their larger properties with the family.

I would recommend this for a couple. It was cozy and wonderful to come back home to after a day at the beach and a night of bar hopping at the awesome bars Bradenton has to offer. Everything is in such close distance. We can't wait to come back!!

Location, location, location. The 3 most important things to consider in a vacation rental. Tucked back on a VERY peaceful setting. Brick patio courtyard & outdoor covered patio set with umbrella. Nestled under several palms. A stones throw to top 3 white powder & emerald warm gulf water of Bradenton Beach on one side & stones throw in other direction to our boat/fishing dock on Sarasota Bay. Sit on the dock & enjoy the scenery, watch for dolphins, do some fishing, read a book, etc. Walk to many of the best hot spots just down the road. Best restaurants, Fishing Piers, historic Bridge St. etc. You have a view of the Beach & Bay from our yard. Enjoy our big screened lanai that overlooks the lush natural garden in our courtyard.

This beach home is ground level with no stairs to maneuver! Paradise awaits!

Anna Maria Island

Anna Maria island is just seven miles long and is made up of 3 small cities: Bradenton Beach,

Holmes Beach, and Anna Maria at the north. No matter which direction you come, you must cross water

via a bridge. At the southern tip is the most sought after area of Bradenton Beach. You can head north from Sarasota travel on to Longboat Key and cross over a draw bridge on to Bradenton Beach. There are also two other draw bridges from the main land of Bradenton to come onto Anna Maria island. One way is via Manatee Avenue (SR 64 ) & the other is via Cortez Road.

What is there to do?

Anna Maria, Holmes Beach, Bradenton Beach & Beyond

While Anna Maria Island is known for laid back living & relaxation, should you wish to participate in the local scene there's an abundance of activities. If you enjoy biking, Bradenton Beach has a designated bike trail along Gulf Drive. Old Bridge Street has Putt Putt Golf & while you play, there is a misting system so you can stay cool. At the end of Old Bridge Street is a pier for your fishing pleasure as well as a restaurant. There are a variety of restaurants on Old Bridge St making it possible to satisfy every appetite.

Whether it's pizza or French crepes to fish tacos, you can find a meal to satisfy. There are also shops and the US Post office is located here so you can mail post cards to your friends back home.

Naturally you can swim in the crystal clear emerald waters of the Gulf of Mexico. Snorkeling is also fun or surfboarding, parasailing or kayaking. Several local business will rent you all the necessary equipment. Naturally there are golfing & tennis too.

There's really a wide range of things to do here, if you want to have an action packed time you will find plenty. Of course you can always stroll along the white powder shore collecting shells & then watch an incredible sunset with your favorite beverage. Kids of all ages would enjoy a visit to Bradenton to see Snooty the manatee. The area of Manatee/Sarasota counties also has great off shore fishing, jet skiing, kayaking, golfing, tennis, shopping, museums, & art galleries to explore.

Be sure to observe all the turtle watch rules as the Ridley turtles are building nests from early May and baby turtles are hatching on our beaches. You might even go on a turtle watch tour with our local turtle lady. Look in the paper for her schedule.

The entire island of Anna Maria has many reasonably priced award winning restaurants.The Sign of the Mermaid Restaurant has not only delicious food as in breakfast, lunch, & dinner, but the owner is a triple time National Pie contest winner. Be sure & stop by.

Of course, check out the local newspaper for the latest events about the island. The SUN is just one. It's free & had lots of information you can use on current happenings.

Holmes Beach is famous for the Beach Cafe, Skinny's a small local hamburger, hotdog storefront plus along Gulf Drive you will locate the island grocery store, Publix & several island strip centers with your last minute beach items such as snacks, lotions, toys & beach towels.

OFF THE ISLAND:

Mote Science Lab is just a short drive off the island & on to Longboat Key just a few miles to the south. Both you and your kids will enjoy a visit to this 'hands on' science stop. This is where many of the rescued injured animals, occasional birds, turtles, etc are taken to recuperate & then are returned to nature.

for kids:

G WIZ is located in Sarasota near the VanWizzel a block off of Tamiami. This is a state of the art Science hands on museum. Well worth the visit. Check it out on line to see what they are featuring. Call for cost.

Day trips:

Disney World, Epcot Center, the Everglades, visit close by Sarasota (the cultural center of Florida) with the Ringling Museum, Saint Armand's, & much more!
