|Minimum Stay||7 nights|
The original easy beach vacation at an affordable price! No stairs to travel, and only a one-minute walk until your feet are in the Gulf of Mexico or at the shores of Anna Maria Sound.
This two-bedroom, one-bath charmer is tucked between beach and bay in Bradenton Beach. You'll find yourself so close to both the Gulf beaches and the beauties of the Bay that you may only use this cute home base to sleep! However, the comforts of home will beckon, with a large flat-panel television in the living room, a fully equipped eat-in kitchen, and the convenience of ground floor living. The two bedrooms offer a choice of a queen bed and flat-panel TV, or two twin beds.
A stay at Beach Baby means every island attraction is right at your fingertips. Whether you want to sink your toes in the white sand on the Gulfside, or pause to watch the sunrise over the bay, you'll only have to walk a very short distance. Ready for something different? The free Island Trolley stops at the top of the street, ready to take you to the north end of the Island for a visit to the village of Anna Maria, where two historic piers offer opportunities for fishing and dining. Shops, restaurants, galleries, and even a museum and community theater can also be found on this end of the Island.
You might want to hop off the trolley when it makes its way through Holmes Beach. Not only will you find more excellent shops and restaurants, but Holmes Beach is also home to a marina, library, free community tennis courts, and several gyms open to visitors.
And don't forget to explore the rest of Bradenton Beach to the south of your unit. Historic Bridge Street was once the location of the very first bridge to the mainland. Today's Cortez Bridge, just a bit to the north, is made out of sturdier stuff than the original wood structure, but the original street is still there, and it is a fun place for shopping, dining, live music, a weekly open-air market (in season), fishing, and even miniature golf!
For a lovely, affordable place to call home while visiting our fabulous Island, Beach Baby is just the ticket! Sleeps 4 in one queen and two twin beds. Add Beach Baby 2, and sleep a total of 8 people in two side-by-side units!
