Virtually everything in the unit is like brand new including; brand new A/C and heat system! You may not find another spot so close to the beach & our dock on the bay yet, so peaceful & with such ambiance. It is in a peaceful private compound steps from bay & beach. Nothing soothes like the smell the salt from the sea & sound of the waves, the palms, the sea birds, etc. You are almost certain to see Dolphins from our dock or beach! If you like to fish, fishing from our dock or, local pier, is fishing heaven!

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!
This is a recent listing and I think you may agree it says something that we already have so many reviews and all 5 STAR. We have also been awarded as a top vacation rental by a competing vacation rental site who's name can't be mentioned on this site. So, rent with confidence knowing we have been in this business since 2009 and plan on being here for a long time.
So, if you are looking for a vacation rental that is spotlessly clean and very tastefully furnished, with all the amenities of home and all the equipment to maximize your vacation, fishing rods, wi-fi, beach chairs, cool bag, beach towels, umbrella, beach cart, etc., search no more!
Less than a 60 second walk to the main beach on the Gulf and the same distance to our fishing small dock on the beautiful Bay. The condo is situated in the ideal position on AMI as it's only a short walk from all the facilities, bars, restaurants and shops.

Mark Owner/Manager purchased this condo in 2013
*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 (note, HomeAway does now charge a "service fee" which we do not receive it goes 100% to HomeAway).
*ZERO DAMAGE WAIVER FEE. (You are charged a $200 refundable damage deposit which is refunded promptly after departure).
* 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 don't get paid "extra" and therefore hate to deal with "problems".

This home has had a $25,000 face lift which includes new kitchen, bathroom, bedroom, windows, doors, blinds and all furnishings and appliances!

This was perfect from start to end. The contact with the owner Mark was friendly and professional. The house couldn't be better. Surrounded by a lovely cared and quiet garden, it offers everything you could expect and even more. Be it towels or chairs, you find all your beach needs satisfied. And with the beach just steps away, we couldn't wish for more.
Beautifully cared for condo; thoughtfully appointed. Loved the shared patio with tables, umbrellas and comfortable chairs. Easy walk to the beach. Mark and Lily were lovely and responsive. They take the extra steps to create beauty and care for it well. Thank you for a great visit!
This was an extremely we appointed and clean one bedroom apartment in the town of Bradenton Beach. You were a block in one direction to the gulf and the beach and in the opposite direction to the bay. The small town was only blocks away. Really a great location. The small apartment had been recently updated with new counter tops, stove, refrigerator and LED TV's. It had everything you would need to cook a gourmet meal. The shared courtyard was quiet and clean, it was a great place to relax out doors when not at the beach.
We have traveled to a lot of beaches, as we live in the mountains and love to drop in altitude to the warmth and water. Mark takes pride in his property: beautiful gardens, condo is well equipped, clean and homey, very quiet! The location was great, loved to walk to the bay every morning and watch the Sunrise. (great way to start the day) Evening sunsets over the ocean couldn't be beat. Restaurants and shops are close by. We enjoyed staying on property and using the courtyard barbecue.
Thanks Mark wish we could have stayed all winter!
Very comfortable, clean and accommodating. The grounds are well kept and well- maintained. The units are small but perfect for 2 adults and maybe 1 child and have everything you need . Very short block to the beach. Mark provided exceptional Customer Service from the time of inquiry to check out....he was there on the grounds to greet us when we arrived.
