About Mike

Mike is a master licensed boat captain, 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...

Great location!

  • 5 of 5

Mike was there or easy to get a hold of if we had any questions. Very clean! We were there for 4 weeks and loved to be so close to everything-so many restaurants, ice cream, and best of all just a walk across the street to the beach. Also nice that there were chairs for the beach there for our use. Beautiful sunset EVERY night!

Relaxation at it's best.

  • 5 of 5

Our entire experience was great. Making the reservation and payment was simple. As soon as we arrived and walked in, we felt comfortable. Everything you will need is there. Mike has the perfect little set up. The grill on the rear patio was great. The beach access is a very short walk away, and the beaches are great with some of the most beautiful sunsets that you will ever see. Most everything was within walking distance, or if not just a free trolley ride away. We walked to Bridge St. and down to the pier every night, and then strolled down the beach. Many good restaurants within a few blocks. Mike, I just want say thank you and that it was a pleasure to met you. I promise that we will return.

A great condo on a great island

  • 5 of 5

I just spent a month at Dolphin View B and had a great time. The condo was very clean and had a great beachy feel to it. The bed was by far the most comfortable I've ever slept on. I haven't slept as well as I did there in years.

I was within a 5 minute walk of many places to go shopping, eat or have a drink. The beach was also just across the street and once you were on it you could walk for miles.

Mike who owned the place was a pleasure to talk to and you could tell he was willing to go out of his way to make your experience there as enjoyable as possible.

I would highly recommend this condo for any couple who wants to go and have an extremely relaxing trip to a beautiful island.

Cute House, Awesome Location

  • 4 of 5

The house is great, and the owner (Mike) is very accommodating. Just a few minutes' walk to Bridge Street or the beach.

One thing to note is that the photo is either old or from a weird angle; the house is right on a major intersection and there is plenty of hustle and bustle. But overall it's a great place and highly recommended.

Just as great this year!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and are sad to be leaving this week. We returned this year to salty living, and found a bottle of wine with 2 wine glasses chilling in the fridge to welcome us back. We have come back to this place because of its reasonable price and amenities and location. All the beach toys: chairs, umbrellas, carts and floaties were at our disposal. It is located right across the street from a beach with white powdery sand. You can see the sunsets every night from the property. We especially enjoy the owner, Mike, who is readily available to share information about the area and quickly responds if there is a concern. Thanks for another great holiday Mike!
