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.

Updates to bathrooms,kitchen is a nice change from some properties we have used with dated facilities. Porch came in handy to get some sun when the beach was too windy. Quite neighborhood and close to the beach.

Stella Marina a "GEM" on Anna Maria Island

  • 5 of 5

We had a girls weekend May 5-9th and the accommodations and location were perfect. We were across the street from the beach and the trolley picks up less than a block away. Nick, the owner, was extremely helpful and generous with his knowledge of the area. I accidently left one of my favorite knives in the kitchen and he had it wrapped and back to me so fast I forgot I left it. We will definitely be back. We can't thank Nick enough for renting out reasonably priced unit! if you're looking for a great location, clean with a true Florida BEACH feel that is reasonably priced you won't be disappointed!

Awesome beach getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Nick's place (Stella Marina) was beautiful and well-appointed in every respect. The furniture was well-chosen, the apartment was clean, the bed linens, towels, and everything else was great. Down to the memory foam mattress on the sleeper sofa, Nick clearly has thought through every need his guests might have. The first trip we took to the beach (about a block away if you go out the alley) we loved the stroll, the sand, the shore birds ... but we didn't stay too long. Needed to go back for this or that. The second time, we noticed the beach cart Nick had set up in the downstairs area -- beach umbrella, coolers, beach toys, folding beach chairs. On wheels. We stayed for hours, and the weather was excellent. Very good food at local restaurants, but it was terrific to be able to make a quick run to Publix and do most of our own cooking in a kitchen that had all the basics. If you're home- brewed iced-tea addicts like we are, bring your own pitcher! That was literally the only thing we missed! Thank you, Nick!

Wow! Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

Hats of to Nick for creating a magical home in a beautiful setting. He makes everything so easy! The House is absolutely spotless and decorated so well. The location is perfect......Right between the beach and the bay. I have rented several places from HomeAway and this was by far the best one ever! Nick has everything covered.....You could literally just bring some bathing suits, flip flops and some t-shirts and everything else is taken care of. The cart for the beach with a built-in cooler was awesome.

If you have an opportunity, please rent Nick's House.......You will NOT be disappointed!

Great stay for family, few steps from nice beach.

  • 5 of 5

This very clean apartment, with all the amenities was the ideal place for a short vacation of a family of 4 (2 adults 2 kids). We wished we could have stay longer.

Conveniently located just a few steps for the best beach in Florida, crystal clear water, white sand, some shells and you could see dolphins and even manatees. My 12 and 10 year old kids were delighted with the experience.

Nicolas, the owner, keep this place in very good shape and not only advice you about the apartment and its amenities, he also act as a Concierge and recommend the nicest places on the Island. We were delighted with the Tide Tables at the Cortez Marina, freshest fish ever and very inexpensive.

We will definitely return to Stella Marina on Anna Maria Island!!

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.
