About the property

2 bedrooms,1 bath, sleeps 6, full sized kitchen and laundry room

A short walk takes you to the beach down a quiet, dead end street (about 400 feet). No traffic for you to cross. At the other end of the street, the free Island trolley runs every 20 minutes all day, running the length of the island. Bradenton has lots of shopping with an outlet mall in Ellenton. The Pittsburgh Marauders are a Pirates minor league baseball team that play all summer. Tampa has the Buccaneers (NFL), the Lightning (NHL), and St. Pete has the Rays (MLB). To the south, Sarasota is famous for arts and cultural events. Kayaking and biking are popular on the island with guests. Pier fishing, charter fishing, parasailing, jet skiing, and all sorts of water activities are nearby. The island has many small restaurants ranging from sandwich shops to elegant dining. When all that is done, take a beach chair down to the sand and watch a beautiful sunset over the Gulf of Mexico. When the surf is up, the best place in the area is at the beach at the end of the street.

This is a great place for a family vacation or a romantic getaway. Lots of activities or turn off the cell and lay on the beach!

Awesome location

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I just spent the week here with our two small dogs on the 2 bedroom side. Loved that it was a pet friendly rental! The best part about this house is location. It's at the end of a dead end street and only a few houses away from the private beach entrance. The house even has a storage shed full of beach goodies and a beach cart which was convenient! Also loved the covered patio and shady back/side area complete with outside shower. All in all we enjoyed the home, it's the perfect size for a couple or a small family with a child. The owner was very responsive and easy to work with as well!

Everything you could ask for !

  • 5 of 5

Our family just stayed at both your houses this past week. I want to say that it was everything we expected and more. You truly have a great place. My wife had never flown before and really scared about flying there, but she persevered and now loves it. She was also afraid that we would really miss taking this and taking that, but she quickly realized that your home has everything one needs to enjoy their vacation there. Everything was clean, nicely updated, etc... It is a 2-3 minute walk to the beach on a quite dead-end street being only a few homes away which is perfect. Truly a great place. We will be back next year !

Anna Maria Island is a small island located at the mouth of Tampa bay on the west coast of Florida. It sits five miles off the mainland of Bradenton within an easy drive of several metropolitan areas, the largest of which is Tampa. Tampa has numerous attractions, sports teams, shopping, and cultural events. Two hours to the east is Disneyworld near Orlando. The beauty of AMI remains its quiet hometown feel, local shopping within walking distance, and of course, the white sandy beaches with fishing, water sports, or just relaxing on the beaches of the Gulf of Mexico.
