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, Newly expanded enclosed porch/dining/lounge room. Twenty feet long!! Features large screened sliding windows. 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!

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 STAIRS! Unlike most rentals on Anna Maria Island that are elevated by up to 3 stories (that's a lot of stairs when carting luggage, beach chairs, groceries, etc.) Our beautiful vacation rental is ground level. * 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". Day trips: Disneyworld, Epcot Center, the Everglades, visit close by Sarasota (the cultural center of Florida) with the Ringling Museum, Saint Armand's, and much more! It's just a 15 minute drive to St. Armand's circle. Designer shops and world renowned restaurants just a few examples of what you will experience. Our property is: • Near Golf (several courses within 15 min drive!) • Near Beach (steps away)! • Safe Swimming Beach • Near Disneyworld - FL 120 Minutes • Near Busch Gardens 60 Minutes • Near Boardwalk • Near Marina • Near Boat Launch • Near Shopping • Near Restaurants Airport Information Closest airport is Sarasota airport which is just minutes drive.

Best stay yet!
Carol and I had a wonderful time. This is our third time to Island Getaway and we would never stay anywhere else. The weather was absolutely perfect and as always the amenities were outstanding. Mark's location is amazing. We have stayed in three different units and all of the units are all fantastic. Already booking our next trip in the Fall and can't wait to be back. Thank you again Mark and Liliana.
Cozy and perfect for a short stay.
My wife and I enjoyed our stay and would stay here again. A bit on the smaller side but the unit was perfect for 2 people. A short walking distance to beaches and restaurants makes this an ideal location. Unit was clean and nicely decorated, owner was clear on instructions and directions there. We hope to make it back soon for another visit.
Glad you found our beautiful vacation rental perfect for you and your wife.

You stayed during Seafood festival, one of the busiest weekends of the year. Although I'm sure you will agree, even though the island was busy, once at our property you would never know it. We are on a street with no thru traffic so, Always peaceful at our property. This area was voted one of the best biking areas in FL! Our paved bike trail across street, along the beach, offers stunning views of Cortez and Coquina Beach and goes for a mile and half. There is an outdoor restaurant along the bike trail and several picnic areas, outdoor grills, changing rooms, and more. It also loops under bridge for another 3/4 mile to Coquina Baywalk Nature preserve. This is something you should have tried. Last but not least, you are not required to replace paper products or dishwasher detergent, except if you run out of our supply and need a small amount for your own use only. We even provide washing machine machine detergent, free of charge, and do not have coin operated machines like many places. We also provide free of charge, fishing gear, lures, use of our fishing dock, beach cart, beach towels, beach umbrella, beach chairs. We also provide gas barbeque grills, gas included at no charge as well.

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.

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?
