About Mark Owner/Manager
My wife and I own this property. 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. Very peaceful. Big courtyard. Plenty of outdoor seating. Tropical landscaping. Nice screened Lanai. Everything to make your vacation enjoyable is included except your flipflops.
Why Mark Owner/Manager chose Bradenton Beach
*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 the service fee that goes to HomeAway. *ZERO DAMAGE WAIVER FEE. Our damage deposit is completely refundable 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 hate to deal with "problems". Location, Location, location. Walk or ride our bikes to all the activities, National Nature preserve with long boardwalks that wrap around bay for breathtaking views, beach front restaurants where you can eat on the white powder sand, Marina's, huge fishing pier, parasailing, Segway rentals, pubs, entertainment, outdoor markets, and much more. Free trolley picks you up on our street corner and takes you anywhere on island and another brings you to see the sites of neighboring Sarasota! NO NEED FOR CAR!!
What makes this Cottage unique
We are on best part of island! Steps away from our our BRAND NEW dock on the bay where you can fish, kayak, or just enjoy the breathtaking scenery. Watch for manatee and dolphins! Return home and grill what you catch on our gas grill! This area offers best fishing I have ever seen and I have vacationed at the best fishing places in the Caribbean! On the other side of property is our incredible beach which offers white powder sand and warm Turquoise water! Ride our bikes a short ways to Coquina Beach and enjoy all the public beach offering i.e., outdoor grills, beach volleyball, shopping, cafe on the beach and more! Just across street is the great Preserve called Baywalk at Coquina beach. COME be our guest and join the many who have become regulars. 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!

Excellent Location, Beautiful Place
It was perfect for our family. We loved the location and the beautiful patio area. The unit itself was very clean and had all the amenities we needed. You couldn't ask for a better location Gulf on one side and bay on the other within walking distance plus lots of shops and restaurants. Mark is very kind and thoughtful. We mentioned to him about the parking being tight and he emailed us today that he was fixing it. Totally impressed with him and the property. Thank you for a great stay!
Thanks for your great review. Thanks for mentioning our great location and that our beautiful unit was very clean. Before we invested here, we used to rent from various places that claimed to have "immaculately" clean units. By our standards these "top rated" rentals were not clean at all. So, we really appreciate when our guests notice and make a point to mention the cleanliness of our rental in their review. We are happy you chose to stay as our guest and look forward to having you back.
Great 3 day vacation
Perfect place for a getaway room clean, Close to everything. We will be back for the third time
Location is great. Mark is a fantastic owner. We stayed 4 days and I felt like I've made a life time friend. Thank you mark for making our stay so nice and relaxing
Thanks for your great review! Delighted you had a relaxing vacation and loved our great location. We look forward to having you back again!!
Exceeded our expectations, Clean and very well appointed
The owners have everything you need here at the property for a perfect Beach stay. The location is ideal for walking to the beach for sunsets, the bayside for fishing and Bridge Street for shopping and dining. The owners went out of their way to make sure we were happy and included a nice welcome gift of wine. I cannot emphasize how very new and clean this unit was. The only negative was the AC being a bit noisy for us but we blocked it out with the white noise App. The premium linens and comfortable beds made up for this, as well! Thank you for a lovely stay!
Thanks for the great review. We appreciate your mention of our ideal location, the new condition of everything, and how immaculate everything was! We just installed a new 3 ton central A/c system that you will find more quiet when you return! See you later!
Check for cancellation policy.
Sorry it rained during your entire short stay but, delighted you have already booked your next stay with us for December! We look forward to having you back!!
Once again for the third year in a row we were so happy with our vacation in AMI!!!
The new addition of a second bathroom was a beautiful surprise!!!!!!
The property was clean and well kept.
We love staying IN AMI and at this location!!!!!
We would give it 10 stars if we could!!!!!
Thank you for having us!!!!!
Thanks for being our guest every summer for the past three years! We know there are lots of choices and appreciate you choosing us each year! Delighted you liked all the remodeling we did. We are always finding ways to improve and keep everything like new so, we continue to get great guests like you who return year after year! Thanks for mentioning that our property is clean and well kept. Before we invested in this vacation property we rented vacation rentals. Even those who claimed to have "immaculate" conditions, were dirty by our standards. So, we're just offering what we would expect, and proud to have the cleanest vacation rental on Anna Maria Island! We look forward to having you back again next year!!!!
Location, location, location. The 3 most important things to consider in a vacation rental. Tucked back on a VERY peaceful setting. Brick patio courtyard and outdoor covered patio. Nestled under several palms. About 50 second walk to top 5 white powder beach in USA! About 40 steps to our fishing dock on Sarasota Bay. Sit on the dock & enjoy the scenery, watch for dolphins, do some fishing, read a book, etc. Walk to many of the best hot spots just down the road. Best restaurants, Fishing Piers, historic Bridge St. etc. You have a view of the Beach & Bay from our yard. Enjoy our big screened lanai that overlooks the lush natural garden in our courtyard. This beach cottage is ground level with no stairs to maneuver! It is designed also to accommodate handicapped individuals with wide doors & walk-in seated shower. Paradise awaits!
Other Activities: Wildlife Viewing, Shopping, Kayaking, Parasailing, Health/Beauty Spa, Boating, Miniature Golf
Golf: Many great golf courses nearby! You may never want to leave!
