About the property

3 bedroom 2 bath home directly on sand with swimming pool

Fantastic 'Old Florida' style Gulf Front ground level vacation rental with your own private above ground pool. Within close walking distance to lots of activities. There are restaurants, shopping, putt-putt golf, bars with live entertainment, a fishing pier and more.


This 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom duplex is in the Historic Overlay district of Bradenton Beach, one block south of historic Bridge Street and close to the old fishing village of Cortez. Your family has exclusive use of the pool.

Walk out onto your own beachfront covered porch to watch the dolphins playing in the surf or witness the most spectacular sunset on the entire Florida Gulf Coast. Step right onto the sugar sand beach just out your back door to solidify that you are in fact in your own tropical paradise.

This property has many unique features including that it is at ground level- no stairs or elevator needed. You truly can just step right out onto the beach, literally!

It is one of the very few direct beach front private homes on AMI that offers a beach-side above ground pool.

This home really does have it all: private beach front relaxation and yet steps from all sorts of Anna Maria Island fun vacation activities.

You will have a memorable family vacation here.

Christmas in Paradise

We had a great time! Right on the beach!!! Everything was provided. We didn't have to buy toys for the kids or chairs to take on the beach. Everything was provided! I would love to go back!

A wonderful place, perfect for 4 adults and two grandkids

  • 5 of 5

We were here for 8 days the week before Christmas 2016. Our first time on the Gulf coast. A perfect location in old Florida funky feeling Bradenton Beach. Walking distance to restaurants and stores and across the street from a great ice cream store. We had a grand time and will definitely come came.

John and Lee Ann are great hosts, their blue cottage is wonderfully equipped for a relaxing week of family and fun.

Lovely, relaxing time on beach

  • 5 of 5

Highly recommend this home. Perfectly situated on beach. Nice sand and gin clear water, which is very safe for children. Home itself is nicely appointed/clean - and we appreciated the couple of welcome items left for us on arrival (wine, chocs etc).

The home is very close to some really great bars and restaurants, many of whom had live music. The tiki bar just along the beach is nice to sit at bar and watch the world go by. Blue Marlin was the best restaurant we went to, followed closely by Freckled Fin. Don't bother with the Bistro above Island Time - food was good, but service not reflective of the high prices. AMOB on pier is good too.

Our hosts live next door. Very unobtrusive, and responsive on the one question we had on arrival. Bumped into John as he arrived back from a run along the beach one morning - genuinely nice guy.

Finally, the fishing is great - either from the beach (lady fish, crevalle jack and more) or the pier on back bay (snapper, grouper, pinfish etc). Shop on pier rents tackle and provides bait.

In summary - had wonderful time, and am sure will be back. Thank you Lee Anne and John.

John and Lee Anne,

We had a great time at your beach front home. Anything we could have wanted was here. Within walking distance to everything. Beautiful indoor and out door living. No hurricane here!

Thank you so much,

The Driscolls from Pa.

Our Happy Place

  • 5 of 5

This place was perfect for our family of 5. We ate meals everyday outside on the table looking out onto the beautiful gulf. We rode bikes, kayaked , paddle boarded and simply enjoyed the beauty of the island. Our hosts were lovely and so helpful with any question. Having all the amenities at our disposal was a nice luxury. We saw manatees, dolphins and green parrots. We hope to come back to AMI and stay at this home again.

Private Paradise

  • 5 of 5

This property was exactly as advertised and hosts were wonderful. In fact, privacy and beach proximity were even better than I expected. There was no "packing up" to go to the beach. The backyard was the beach. And if we wanted to hang out closer to the water then we just carried a chair down there. Forget something? Just walk back inside to get it. We watched the beautiful sunset every single night! The house was within walking distance to lots of shops and restaurants. If you want to visit Anna Maria Island, this is definitely the place to stay.
