About Larry Gardner

We are a young couple in our 40's. We have 3 grown kids and 8 grand-kids. We love everything outdoors and that is why we love Anna Maria Island. We would love to share our place in Paradise with you.

We like to make our guest fill right at home.

Larry Gardner purchased this condo in 2012

Why Larry Gardner chose Bradenton Beach

It is right in the middle of the Island and walking distance to Restaurants and shops, there is also a free trolley that goes the length of the island with a stop in front of the condo. It is only steps from the white sand beach.

What makes this condo unique

Unlike similar sunset celebrations in Florida tourist meccas such as Key West, there are no rowdy crowds, wall-to-wall bars or panhandlers. Also absent on Anna Maria are high-rise condos and chain hotels. You'll have to drive off-island for a McDonald's or Starbucks fix. Give's you the small town feel.

Guestbook comments from the manager


Left on 04/13/2014 for a stay in April 2014

We had a wonderful time on our Florida vacation. The condo was everything that I could have hoped for. Loved that it was just steps from the beach!!! The condo was so comfortable and the decorations were amazing. Would definitely recommend this rental.

Great location!!

  • 4 of 5

Overall, we enjoyed our stay immensely. Larry was easy to work with, & always returned our inquiry's in a timely manner. The Condo has everything you could need, & was in short walking distance to the beach. The nice surprise was; I left a pair of my favorite shoes in the Condo, & Larry had them mailed to me! Very thoughtful & appreciated. The Condo was decorated exactly like the pictures, well done! We loved the keyless entry, easy.

The downside would have to be the road noise, & the noise from the nearby units on the same floor & underneath. We also thought the cleaning left a lot to be desired. We purchased bottled water from the nearby Circle K, as the refrigerator water dispenser was full of dust. The kitchen floor was also in need of cleaning, & the outside patio was too dirty to sit outside.

Great Condo across from the beach!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay. Larry and Lori's condo is just as described! It had everything you would need in the kitchen, bedrooms were nice, and the balcony was a favorite for the grandkids during the July 4th parade. The access to the beach was right there, maybe a 5 minute walk at most. That made it great with the grandkids for lunches and bathroom breaks. It is also centrally located on AMI right between the Manatee and Cortez bridges into Bradenton. You could walk a mile either direction for shops, food, or a convenient store. I want to recommend Harry's Grill for burgers or the fish and chips to the North, and Wicked Cantina for tacos to the South. I highly recommend this condo and would definitely stay here again!

Nice Condo

  • 4 of 5

We very much enjoyed our stay here. There was plenty of room and it was so convenient to the beach. It was a perfect getaway. There is no need to pack any extras for the beach because they have everything you could possibly need!

Great place!!

  • 5 of 5

Larry and Lori's place was great! Location was perfect, just across the street from the beach. We used the Monkey Bus for transportation. That is a free service (tips only) that will take you to all of the local hot spots. Just call them! Great place, beautiful decor and all of the kitchen supplies that you need!
