About Nick Bolli

I am of Italian descent and lived stateside for many years. I love returning to Italy every year to visit and to be with my family and friends. Italian people are well known for their social friendliness and warm hospitality. I thrive, enjoy, and take pride being a host for all guests. I find an inner personal content when my guest tell me that they had a comfortable and memorable experience while lodging here at Stella Marina, and look forward to returning.

Why Nick Bolli chose Anna Maria Island

When I decided to renovate the West side of my duplex Stella Marina, my goal was to create a comfortable clean, and appealing home atmosphere in which guest can feel and experience a sense of their own home quality, while relaxing and enjoying the beaches here at Anna Maria Island.

What makes this apartment unique

To feel the sensation of the warm fine sand between your toes, to stare at the Gulf of Mexico horizon vivid color hues during sunset is just a short minute away.

Stella Marina provides beach chairs and chart, towels, charcoal grill, and enclosed outside shower to rinse off salt and sand. Also you have the convenience a washer and dryer for your use provided on the premises.

Parking on Anna Maria Island is at a premium and mostly private. While here at Stella Marina you will have ample free parking for 2 vehicles, one under the shade.

Relax outside the front door on a large deck where you can sit and gaze the surrounding nature and neighborhood. Bring or rent bicycles and venture the island by following designated bicycles paths. I also have one SUP for rent if interested.

Great property, not a fan of AMI

  • 4 of 5

Stella Marina was a great property, reasonably priced, and only one convenient block from beach access. Owner kindly provides beach cart and towels and very thorough instructions. Outside shower and laundry facilities on-site are a plus. This was the first time we visited AMI, it was too busy for our taste, lots of traffic and vacationers everywhere, very commercialized. Perhaps we picked a peak time and it's quieter other seasons.

Awesome!!

  • 5 of 5

This condo is super clean, updated, comfortable, and it has anything you may need from pots & pans to beach towels & beach toys. Nick, the owner, is very informative, welcoming, and he even stopped by to say hi! The condo is located a block from the beach and in close proximity with anything you may need. The neighborhood is quiet and clean as well. Overall, it was a wonderful experience!!

Stellar Stella Marina!!

  • 5 of 5

Stella Marina was a great place to stay! It was close to the beach (very short walk) and had all the beach necessities (umbrellas, chairs, beach cart, and all) available to us so we could just go and enjoy. We had so much fun on our trip and I appreciate Nicholas being available to answer questions and give us specifics to get in the condo and on the beautiful beach!! Thanks, Nicholas!! We will definitely look to come back again.

Stella Marina was just perfect. Nick had everything we needed and was very helpful. I loved the outdoor shower, the walk to the beach was quick and easy and we all want to come back and stay there again. I would definitely recommend Stella Marina over hotels. :)

Would not change a thing!

  • 5 of 5

This is one of the best rental experiences I've had. The pictures posted are spot on. No surprises...except for how well-equipped the unit is. Everything we could have possibly needed was provided. There were four adults in our group, and we all wanted a degree of privacy, so the two-bedroom, two-bathroom set-up suited us perfectly. The location was wonderful. Just a minute or so walk to the beach, yet on a quiet side street. Nick provided a beach cart complete with 6 chairs, an umbrella, beach toys, etc. Inside the unit were six new beach towels. There's also a washer and dryer, although we never used it. We used the free trolley several times, and it was handy. The closest stop was maybe two blocks away.

A couple of weeks before we arrived I had a good conversation with the owner, Nick, and he provided access information, directions, suggestions for dining, etc., so I was perfectly comfortable going to an area and house I had not visited before. He stopped by to let us know he would be out of town for a few days during our visit and left instructions in case we needed anything or needed to contact someone during his absence.

We were in the area for a family wedding. I chose Bradenton Beach because I had never stayed in "this" Florida before. A high-rise condo on the Florida panhandle beach is the Florida we were used to. I loved this area of homes rather than the high rise condos. And since we would be partying at the wedding, we chose to Uber, and there was no problem getting an Uber driver within 5 minutes both going and coming.

This was a great experience and I highly recommend Nick and his house.

Owner's Response: Jo Ann, thank you for your wonderful review of Stella Marina. I am glad that you found my rental unit to meet your needs and to your liking. I can relate what it means preparation for a trip and and the notion wondering if what you have rented for your stay is what you see in the picture and description, will it be accommodating and enjoyable? I do all possible to communicate with my guest prior to their arrival, to insure that they have all information relevant for the stay, so that the guests may maximize their time having fun and a memorable time. I am glad that you were able to use the amenities I provide for the beach. Thank you for leaving the rental unit spotless, and for your departure checkout time, on time. I would recommend you as a guest to any landlord. I hope to have you and family as guest again in the future....Once more, it was a pleasure to have you folks staying at Stella Marina.

Anna Maria Island is a bit of old Florida. It doesn't offer mega resorts or towering condos with crowded beaches, it does offer quiet white sandy beaches and a great family atmosphere. Come see why so many others are finding out that you don't have to compromise on a great beach vacation. Stella Marina is located a short one block walk to the beach. There are a few small condo's and private homes on the beach, so it is never crowded.

Anna Maria Island consist of three cities. The north part of the island is the City of Anna Maria, the middle of the island is the City of Holmes Beach and the southern part is the City of Bradenton Beach.

In the spring of 2014, Anna Maria Island completed a multi=million dollar beach re nourishment which doubled the width of the beaches along the gulf, so now there is even more sand to spread out on.
