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!

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!
My wife and I own this property free and clear of bank mortgage. We guarantee the property is NOT for sale. Thus, you have peace of mind knowing it will be there when you arrive. We are retired and spend most of time living nearby. If you have any problem or questions we are always prompt to assist. We make every effort, proactively, to ensure your stay is nothing but pleasurable memories without any hitches. We take pride in our properties. We communicate with our guests directly. You will never speak to a machine. All of our properties are tastefully furnished and decorated with no expense spared. You will find all the amenities of home. Just bring your flip flops and get ready for a GREAT vacation.

*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".

The condo was very clean, it is cozy, as in small. Good for two people with only one bathroom. Bathroom is very small, with small shower. Great location, walking distance to everything. Close to beach, and bay. Nice dock with a bench to relax on. Nice gated, secluded patio. I missed seeing the sun and what was happening without walking out to the road. All and all I'd say, nice place if you take in all the negatives. We knew it was small when we rented it. I guess I didn't realize "how small"! Owners are very nice, willing to work with you folks.. Thanks for a nice stay.
We had a great time staying at this lovely condo. It had everything you could wish for a relaxing holiday.
Mark (owner) was very accommodating. He gave my wife Tracey a card and a bottle of wine for her birthday. A very nice surprise.
The location is perfect for the beach and we loved sitting at the dock watching the world go by.
Would definitely recommend and we hope to be be back next year.
This place is a little hidden jewel. You walk into a palm tree oasis terrace. Then you get to the cottage. It's cozy and clean. Upgraded kitchen adorable little living room. The bed is the most comfortable bed EVER!! There are fishing poles, beach chairs and lots of towels. The beach is across the street. Restaurants and shopping is just a five minute walk. People are very friendly there. We met the nicest gentleman named Chris. He oversees the properties in the area. He was a real pleasure to meet and chat with. Rich and Deb Page
Me and my wife really enjoyed the unit. Very clean and well kept. Really liked the location too. A very short walk to the bay or the Gulf. We were well pleased!!
We have been extremely fortunate in our dealings with the owner. This engagement was dreamed up on very short order, but after our last great experience over Spring Break -- I wanted my wife to have the convenience of staying near the beach rather than staying inland at an average hotel. Cost was a concern under the unique circumstances of the visit, but Mark really worked with us. We are 2-for-2 and look forward to our next stay in and around Ana Maria Island / Bradenton Beach.
Very clean upon arrival. Equipped with basic needs and nicely decorated. It is prefect for 2 people. More than 2 would be very cramped I think. Nice shared courtyard. Fresh linens, kitchen has appliances and dishes needed. There is still coy structure on the beach but you can walk down to the right a ways to avoid it. A decent walk to Bridge Street. Cons- parking is tight. Twice we had to hunt people down and ask them to move from our designated spot. We have a 4 door truck and it stuck out in to the road because the parking spots are rather short and we hung over in to the neighboring spot. Luckily no one was in parking space beside us the first few days. No deadbolt on the condo door. There is a safety latch from the interior only. Cylinder on door handle is broken and can be turned with fingernail or knife so we felt unsafe leaving any valuables in the condo while we were gone. There was loud construction at nearby units and house several days (started after 8:30am at least) we were there. Not much the owner can do about that but it was frustrating to pay so much for our 1 vacation this year and have to listen to it. Mattress was slightly soft for our preference. Owner very nice and easily accessible if needed.
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.

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.
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.
