Beautiful pool, house needs some work, lots of construction

  • 2 of 5

The dishes were put away dirty, literally had crumbs on plates and food stuck on the utensils. Had to run many loads of dishwasher cycles to feel comfortable eating on dishes. Called and complained and was told they were sorry and asked if we wanted their cleaning company back over. I declined it because it was our first night there, we had a house full of people, (it sleeps 8) were tired and figured the cleaning company would just do what we were doing...running loads of dishes through the dishwasher.

The downstairs unit is completely separate from the upstairs, need keys to get in, didn't like that. The downstairs unit, can't really open the windows due to the noise of the air conditioners. The shades and blinds in most of the rooms were broken.

We arrived on a Saturday evening. Sunday morning breakfast on the deck, above the pool, was peaceful and quiet, thought it was going to be a wonderful beginning to our week off. Monday morning, construction on the house next to us started. Not another quiet morning for our entire stay. Construction went from 8 AM to 4, 4:30 and one time past 5 PM. So, all day hammering, sawing, construction workers yelling to each other. Then on Wednesday, construction on the property behind the house, next to the pool, started. They were working with cinder blocks and cutting them, so dust was blowing over....it was loud and messy. I called and complained, they did not call me back. I understand the rental company cannot control construction areas, but we should have been informed that it was scheduled. I think there should have been a discount due to all the construction, dust, noise and workers all over the place.

The house description said that the garage could be used for cars to be put away, however, 8 bikes and all the beach equipment were stacked in front of both garage doors. Had to move a pile of stuff to have access through the garage doors.

A positive of the house was the close proximity to the beach. It was literally one house away from being on the beach. There was even a beach/ocean view from the deck. It was also a straight shot down the main road to all the shops and the main City Pier. That was very nice.

The pool was the highlight. It was a warm, saltwater pool. Had a light in it for lounging in it at night. Was almost 6 feet deep on one end, but shallow with steps on the other. Sun had direct access to the pool all day.

Neglected home

  • 2 of 5

On our 4th annual trip to AMI we booked this and kept reading all the positive reviews, such as those on the property management website. No idea how this house has positive reviews. The house was dirty, visibly run-down, full of broken supplies in the garage (4 broken boogie boards, broken bikes), bugs throughout the house (ants and others), a rat in the garage, wine cooler and outdoor shower broken, faulty electric - cannot use a hair dryer. I don't know what others are used to, but we were horrified compared to what we've rented before on AMI. The location and layout of the house were the only positives. The sheets, pillows, linens were decades old and dirty. The bottom floor smells and we would not spend any time in there besides using the fridge. Will not stay again. Maintenance did not address any of our concerns during the week, except for a broken overhead light.

Owner's Response: As the owner of Coastal Cottages, I was dismayed to read this review. We strive to always maintain the best customer service for both our guests and our property owners. I was the broker for the agent who sold this home to the current owners in August of 2013, so I do know that the linens and towels are not "decades old." At the time of purchase, the new owners completely outfitted the house with everything brand new, including the furnishings, linens, towels, dishes, etc., to put it in our rental program. That's when they also added the new pool. The house is an elevated beach house built in 1976, so the main living area is on the second floor, with a brand new kitchen, bathrooms and interior. The downstairs is mainly a garage area with storage for beach chairs, bicycles, etc. Perhaps guests, through time, have added to the inventory, with the boogie boards, etc., and I will have the owners notified of this, as they come periodically to stay at their beach house and do upkeep at the house. I know the owners maintain a pest control service, so I am sorry you found ants in the house!

Perfect for our family!

  • 5 of 5

Bradley's Beach House had everything we needed and more for our family of ten. We enjoyed being just a very short walk to the beach and the luxury of having a nice pool in the back yard. The house was clean, well furnished and the kitchen included everything we needed. We prepared our own meals for the most part but after discovering the donut shop, we enjoyed fresh, warm donuts several times. We especially enjoyed the balcony overlooking the pool and the patio around the pool. Both were comfortably furnished.

We did call Coastal Cottages a couple of times and they took care of our questions right away.

I would certainly recommend the property to friends or family.

Great Rental!

  • 5 of 5

We were very satisfied with this lovely home. It was perfect for our family vacation which included our daughters and their families. The weather wasn't the best the week we were there, but we made the most of it and had a great time in spite of that. Our grandchildren absolutely loved the pool! It was a lifesaver! Even on cloudy days they could still enjoy swimming. When it rained we just found other things to go out and do. And of course the beach was a huge hit. Jumping the waves and collecting shells entertained them as well. The location was perfect on the island. We could walk to many shops and eating places - all of which were very good!!! I would highly recommend this rental home.

Beach, fun and sun await!

This family friendly vacation rental is located on Florida's Anna Maria Island, a quaint barrier island nestled in the Gulf of Mexico south of Tampa Bay. Comprised of three cities—Anna Maria on the north end, Holmes Beach in the middle and Bradenton Beach to the south—AMI is one of the only places where the 'old Florida' charm still exists. The Island has every convenience needed, including multiple award winning restaurants, including Beach Bistro, Sandbar Restaurant, Sign of the Mermaid, and Waterfront Restaurant. There is also plenty of shopping available along historic Pine Avenue in Anna Maria and Bradenton Beach's historic Bridge Street. With the beach and the Bay just minutes away from your front door, there is plenty to do in the water. Kayaking, snorkeling, fishing, jet skiing, and parasailing are the more popular activities. With the Island only seven miles long, there is no need to drive when almost everything is within walking or biking distance. Plus, there is a free trolley service that runs the length of the Island every day. AMI truly has something for everyone, and everyone who visits falls in love with it. We are sure you will too! So, reserve your vacation home today . . . seven miles of pristine white beaches and beautiful sunsets await you!
