About Mike

Mike is a master licensed boat captain and advanced diver that is knowledgeable about the area. Mike is friendly and has enjoyed raising a family, working, and living in beautiful Bradenton for over 21 years, only a couple miles away from this beautiful Gulf view property and has no plans to leave.

"Our goal & wishes at Salty Living Rentals is that you have what you need and sincerely enjoy your stay... When you leave take mostly good memories, a few sand dollars, and many dreams of returning…"


Mike purchased this villa in 2012

Why Mike chose Anna Maria Island

Capt. Mike, owner of Salty Living Island Rentals & Property Services, LLC. (SLRPS) Purchased this 2 story / 4-plex located right in the center of beautiful Bradenton Beach because of its great location and proximity to the Beach, City Park, and the Bay. The property has on site parking spaces, one assigned parking space for your villa. Additional day time public parking is on the East side of the building a short 1/2 block away for a beach wedding or day visitors.

What makes this villa unique

When you stay here you can park your car and forget it. Everything you need is right here within walking distance or a short free Trolley ride away. The sand dollar white beach has natural wading pools just past the surf. Sometimes there is no surf at all, which is popular with relaxation seeking rafters. Wave runners, sail boats, kayaks, beach scuba (ask me), and other water craft rentals are a short walk down the beach. Just let Capt. Mike know what type of water sport or leisure activity you wish for before or during your stay and he'll be happy to point you in the right direction… Wedding parties can walk from this location to the Beach House restaurant (across the street on the beach) or the Gulf Drive cafe (on the beach) for all wedding arrangements...

Good location for people who enjoy being in a busy area.

  • 4 of 5

Enjoyed our stay. Was convenient to many restaurants etc. Intersection was very busy most of the time. Living area was clean, and well equipped inside for cooking, showering etc. And outside for just hanging out in the back and grilling , to going to the beach with beach buggy to bring beach chairs, beach towels, cooler, all supplied by Villa. Outside shower too. I left a curling iron in bathroom sink cabinet for next visitors to Villa. Anna Maria Island is a beautiful area. Do the Mangrove kayak tour and Sunset Dinner Cruise on the Marina Jack II, both a 30 min.ride away and worth the money.

Great location!

  • 4 of 5

Great location and worderful beach. The apartment was clean and had everything, especially the beach equipment and also the kitchen. We had breakfast every morning outside in the nice patio. Everything is close by, you can just walk to places where to shop, eat, and drink. Mike welcomed us and gave us very useful tips on the island. We saw dolphins and stingrays. We had such good and relaxing time that we want to go back, possibly with our friends. Anna Maria island is simply wonderful for vacation time!

Great April

  • 5 of 5

Our months stay at Salty Living in April far surpassed our expectations. It is truly a home away from home vacation.

Mike has supplied everything you need plus many extras to help make your stay special. Ideal location it is directly

across the road to a great beach, within walking distance to half a dozen restaurants...good food and live entertainment

nightly. We enjoyed walks to the pier every evening, listening to the music and visiting the shops. Look forward to

visiting again in the future.
