Overview

About the property

Most sought after location! Courtyard, Washer/Dryer Full Kitchen Sleep Sofa ACT!

Before you book, ask how you can save $50!

Our 1 bedroom home may be the most cozy beach rental on the island! You may not find another spot so close to the beach & bay yet so peaceful & with such ambiance. It is in a peaceful private and most narrow part of the island. This most sought after location is about 50 second walk to/from bay & beach. Nothing soothes like the smell the salt from the sea & sound of the waves. You are almost certain to see Dolphins from our dock or beach! If you like to fish this is fishing heaven!

You will have a private, off road, parking spot.

There is an outdoor storage locker next to your entrance. In the locker is fishing gear, chairs and umbrella.

Use our gas grill. Nothing like grilling the fish you just caught!

There's an outdoor shower. Perfect for rinsing off sand after going to the beach!

We offer basic fishing gear for you to catch the 'big one'

Gas grill is waiting for you to fire it up and grill what you catch. Nothing better than fresh fish on the Barby.

Ride bikes along paved bike paths along the beach. We have a strategic alliance with Bike rentals shop nearby. You will receive a pass code for discount on cruiser bike rentals.

Washer/Dryer, not coin operated like many places. We even provide the detergent!

Relaxing courtyard with outdoor dining area enveloped by tropical lush garden.

There's a paved trail across st that leads to Coquina Beach. If you go all the way to the end you can loop under bridge & find Coquina BayWalk Preserve. You can loop back to the Coquina Cafe for a cold drink & delicious Hamburger or their great grilled chicken sandwich.

This vacation home was recently listed for the first time! You may be hard pressed to find a more cozy and charming vacation rental in such a tranquil location. Entire home has porcelain floors in every room! Big brick outdoor patio awaits you as you step out your front door. Rate includes unlimited calling anywhere in USA and Canada, Wi-Fi, Digital cable, Flat screen TV with DVD. WE ARE CLEAN FREAKS SO REST ASSURED EVERYTHING IS ALWAYS EXCEPTIONALLY CLEAN! If you like fishing, fish off our dock just about 50 steps away or walk to Bridge street pier which is about a 10 minute walk. They sell bait and rent fishing gear there too. If you like going for walks, there is a marvelous paved trail across our street that goes for about a 1.5 miles or so along the beach. The trail is covered by weeping pines and palms and the scenery is simply breathtaking. Just about a 15 min walk is Coquina Baywalk (nature preserve) at Leffis key where you will enjoy acres of boardwalks built along the Bay. Spectacular scenery and wildlife. You will enjoy a wide variety of restaurants all within walking distance including our favorites on the historic Bridge St Pier. Watch for dolphins and Manatee! Anyway, I can go on and on but you need to experience our slice of paradise for yourself.

Enjoy 7 1/2 miles of beautiful white sand beaches and spectacular sunsets on the Gulf of Mexico! Just steps to restaurants, shops, para-sailing, jet-skiing, fishing and boating excursions - and convenient to area theaters, museums, parks and airports.Whether it’s a sun and fun filled day at the beach or enjoying one of the many activities Anna Maria Island has to offer, you’ll be sure to have a great day and the memories you make during your vacation will last a lifetime!

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 and provide purified water. 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! The ensuite bathroom features a genuine Jacuzzi shower head with multi massage settings. A very enjoyable shower experience!

This vacation rental has high speed WiFi with your own private(not shared) router and modem. Most vacation rentals have a shared modem and router and that could mean a lack of privacy and if there's a problem you are out of luck. High Definition adds a clarity to your enjoyment viewing pleasure for both TV or DVD viewing!

Need more reason to visit? Our island has miles of unspoiled beaches and old Florida charm! ...You won't need a car but if you have one you will have an off road reserved space. Let us know if you prefer not to rent a car and we can provide you with the contact details of our driver. He currently charges $80 to/from Tampa airport and less to/from Sarasota airport.

About Mark Owner/Manager

My wife and I own this property. We are retired and available should you need any help during your stay. We have no mortgage so you can have peace of mind knowing it won't be foreclosed on or sold. We take great pride in making sure that everything is spotless. We think our location is second to none on Anna Maria Island, for peace & tranquility and, easy access to Beach steps on one side and Bay just steps on the other. Big courtyard. Plenty of outdoor seating. Tropical landscaping. Everything to make your vacation enjoyable is included except your flip flops.

Mark Owner/Manager purchased this bungalow in 2013

Why Mark Owner/Manager chose Anna Maria Island

*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, except for a service fee that HomeAway now charges our guests and this fee does not go to us.

*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".

Having traveled to many tropical vacation destinations we found ourselves returning to this area over & over. We found that we no where else can compare with the Anna Maria Island sunsets, the warm, calm, crystal clear turquoise waters and, the abundance of wildlife at 2 nature preserves.. Anna Maria Island is a small community of beach houses and condos. It is one of the few places you can go to without high rise hotels or fast food joints. There is a great 'old Florida' charm on this island. We love it so much we decided to invest and live here during most of the year! We are always happy by how many families have become our repeat guests.

What makes this bungalow unique

If you are looking for a truly relaxing beach get-a-way, our newest beach home is it! Located on a narrow part of the island, the water is on both sides! Enjoy an evening cocktail on your brick courtyard underneath the tropical palm canopy. Walk just a few steps & watch the sun set over the Gulf Of Mexico or walk just a few steps in the other direction & watch the sun rise over the bay while relaxing on our big bench on our dock!

This unit is NOT elevated on stilts like most homes on Anna Maria Island. So, you can walk into your ground floor home without the hassle of lugging groceries and luggage u/down any stairs! You will have a private parking space right outside your unit. We offer an outdoor shower. Perfect after a day at the beach! We also offer a full size washer/dryer. Not coin operated like some places! You will have a private storage bin where you will find umbrellas, chairs, fishing gear & toys.

You will find a cozy living area Love seat sofa & Lazy Boy leather reclining chair. This unit is very clean & tastefully decorated with genuine Tommy Bahama furnishings. There is one full bathroom. The ensuite shower features a genuine Jacuzzi shower head with multi massage settings. A very enjoyable shower experience! The fully equipped kitchen is also fully stocked with all the pots, pans, plates & dining area & living room with comfy couch. For your indoor entertainment there's a flat screen tv with stereo DVD CD & wireless internet.

You are literally steps to the beach & a few blocks from a waterfront park, offering playground & a new kayak launch. They rent kayaks there too.Just around the corner on Gulf Drive is a Trolley stop. This is a free trolley that runs the length of Anna Maria Island providing fun access to shopping & dining. You can walk to the historical Bridge Street area & pier with its many restaurants & shops.

Let this be your home away from home! Come for 3 days, a week or a month

A taste of old Florida but with lovely modern conveniences

  • 5 of 5

This unit is part of a group of single and two story units situated around a charming courtyard on a quiet street connecting the bay to the beach. Within walking distance of Bridge street, so several dining and shopping options close by. Furthermore, the free public transportation would make it easy to come with no car to drive. If you do want to motor about, you are in easy travel distances to several beaches in Venice, Sarastota, or St Pete. The water was a bit rough the week I was there due to a tropical storm, so I walked and admired the beach morning and evening, but went to a more sheltered spot to swim at Fort DeSoto one day. I enjoyed quiet evenings on the dock, watching the herons walk in the shallows. I traveled alone this trip and never felt the slightest bit unsafe, and was warmly greeted by the owner, who was frequently on site caring for the property. I loved that the kitchen was stocked with basics like spices and condiments, so I could actually cook a meal. I was particularly charmed by the ginger beer that was ice cold in the fridge the night I got there, too tired to go back out to the grocery or to a restaurant. A bottle of wine was also waiting for me along with hand cream and scented soap. This part of Florida reminds me of my childhood visits to the state, without the congestion and high rises so common in many parts of the Gulf coast these days. I would have liked to stay a month instead of just a week...

Bradenton Beach Bliss at the "Island Getaway"

  • 5 of 5

I am delighted to share this review of this wonderful island getaway with potential guests. I was most fortunate to come across this gem during my search for a peaceful, quiet location on lovely Anna Maria. As it turns out, the property and experience exceeded my expectations.

From the time I contact Mark and Liliana (the owners) during the course of making my reservations, to my arrival, stay and subsequent departure, I found Mark and Liliana both responsive and very helpful with my myriad questions. They were extremely accommodating; it was clear that their first concern is their guests' comfort and positive experience.

The property is lovely, starting with wide variety of the outdoor seating areas in a lush, green, private setting. The owners have thought of everything--right down to multiple gas grills, well-stocked sheds with beach chairs, umbrellas, and even a cart to tote everything--not to mention washers and dryers (no coins needed), including detergent. The interior of the unit was pristine and well-appointed; you could tell Mark and Liliana have worked hard to anticipate the needs of their guests. (The snacks and goodies in the kitchen were an added, unexpected touch.) The special water-filtration system was also most welcome.

The location of this island getaway is exactly as described on-line: it is one block to one of the quietest, narrowest parts of the island, and one block to the private dock on the bayside. It is easy walking distance to a multitude of restaurants and shops; between the location of the property, the free trolley that runs the length of the island, and the always-fun (not to mention, free) Monkey Bus, guests need not have a car when they visit this lovely location.

Mark and Liliana are clearly interested in doing everything possible to ensure that their guests enjoy their stay. Because they live very close by they are always available and consistently helpful and responsive. I could not have asked for better hosts.

If you are seeking a quiet respite away from the hustle-bustle of a busy "beach scene", look no farther; this is the perfect location. Suffice it to say that I will be back next year, two sisters in tow, to enjoy the wonderful hospitality offered by Mark and Liliana! Thank you both for a wonderful mini-vacation!

Blown away, met expectations and beyond...thank you, thank you...I will be back again.

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful, quiet, relaxing, captivating, rejuvenating, peaceful...This location is a place you go when you want to get away and just unwind. sandwiched between the bay on one end and the beach on the other, both walking distance...you can experience a beautiful sunrise at the bay and a spectacular sunset at the beach...did I mention all within walking distance? The patio area is well arranged, community gas grill with tree covers that make it look like a picture on a postcard. Amazing restaurants all over and also walking distance...If you are looking for a peaceful retreat with your significant other or just some time alone to recharge this it the place, I was so sad to have to leave but I know that I will be back...Pictures and words don't do it much justice, you have to be there to experience this beautiful Oasis at Bradenton beach.

Quick shout out to the owners...you both are amazing, friendly and just genuine people and we appreciated your accomodation...Thank you, thank you, thank you.
