About the property

Studio, Studio + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)


This beautiful, modern condo is directly on the white sand beaches of the Gulf of Mexico. The view is amazing. All along the white sand beach is a ribbon of teal blue water approximately 100 - 200 feet wide. Beyond that, the water turns to a deep rich dark blue color. Every so often you'll see dolphins swim in the teal blue water area, and they are graceful creatures. Watching the sunset over the Gulf of Mexico is a real joy. Walk mile upon mile of powder white sand.

Enjoy this beautiful studio condo, which is directly on the beach and is private and quiet. There is a private balcony on which you can read a book, or enjoy a meal you cooked right in the condo. Swim in the warm Gulf waters or use the private heated pool if you prefer.

Our studio condo has a fully equipped kitchen, with 2 burner hotplate, full size fridge with freezer, and a microwave oven. There is a king size bed, pull-out sofa bed, flat screen TV, DVD player, and internet service. It is nicely decorated and super clean. Linen service is included, but you must bring your own beach towel.

There is a free trolley which will take you around Anna Maria Island and the other keys to see such things as art galleries, live theatre, restaurants and boutiques. Rent a SEGWAY or a golf cart nearby for fun. Fish off a pier. Rest and Relax.

Have a glass of wine on your private balcony/patio and watch the sunset over the Gulf.

Listen to the sound of the waves on the beach.

Keywords: Studio/ condo with full kitchen, amazing views, and private patio/balcony. Private heated pool,

About Steve and Jill Pollock

We live in Toronto, and like most people, lead fairly busy lives. We love to relax here and take time for ourselves. It is such a world of difference on Anna Maria Island. We enjoy the people and atmosphere of Bradenton Beach and look forward to our times here with friends and family.

Steve and Jill Pollock purchased this studio in 2010

Why Steve and Jill Pollock chose Bradenton Beach

My wife's parents had a place near Sarasota and they used to visit at every opportunity. They always spoke of the great weather and the charm and hospitality of the whole Sarasota / Bradenton Beach area. They are older now and have enjoyed their visits plenty of times, my wife and I intend to enjoy the same type of experience

What makes this studio unique

We particularly enjoy walking the beaches in the early morning and sitting on our balcony watching the sunset. We have discovered many terrific restaurants in the area and some great shopping.

Beautiful view...right on the beach.

  • 5 of 5

The property was beautifully and everything that was expected. This condo is right on the Gulf of Mexico. The amenities were great. The bed is fantastic! The owner was wonderful to work with. The pool is heated and clean. The staff was very friendly and easy to work with. The beach is right off the property. The beach chairs from Club Bamboo can be used on the beach. It is very relaxing there, not crowded on the beach and each unit has its own balcony. We will book again with them.

Owner's Response: We are always grateful to hear from folks that have enjoyed their stay as much as we ourselves enjoy our time there. Anna Maria Island is a real gem - as yet undiscovered by throngs of people. Thanks for writing

Very tired and need of attention...

  • 1 of 5

This unit has a great location... right on the beach and near local restaurants. However... it is in desperate need of attention with the soft goods and cleaning. According to the management company they are new and hopefully making changes. The management team was excellent in their customer service and immediately offered to re-clean the unit or move us... we opted for the latter. The owner was very apologetic and apparently has not seen the unit of recent and not aware of the decline. I hope that he follows through with having the unit cleaned and updated... but in its current state I can only give this unit a poor rating.

Owner's Response: Hello Lisa, thank for taking the time to write us. I appreciate your respectful manner in bringing these issues to our attention. The last report we had was quite complimentary so I was disappointed to see that things are not up to the set standard. We are currently improving the unit so as to ensure our guests satisfaction and the room has been closed for the moment while we effect the necessary upgrades. We are so glad the on site manager was able to find you accommodations which were more suitable Best regards

Great location, beautiful place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We booked this property as a surprise get-a-way for our in-laws. They had an amazing trip. The bed was great and the condo was very clean. Everyone was incredibly friendly and the condo and beach were very quiet. The kitchen was the perfect size to prepare little meals and not have to eat out for every meal. The owners were very friendly and helpful. They made great recommendations on food and what to do in the area. Highly recommend.

Owner's Response: We really enjoy Anna Maria Island and it's quirky , unique hospitality. It has been a real pleasure in our lives to visit that area and hope others will feel the same sense of how terrific the area is and what a super place we have there. So glad your folks enjoyed themselves and had a great time.

Great spot right on the beach

  • 5 of 5

This was an excellent vacation rental. Clean, comfortable (except the bed was way too soft for our liking) and right on the beach. Found some great restaurants off the beaten path. Most of the ones on Gulf Blvd cater to tourists and are pricey and not that great except Smokey Bones (fabulous). Would definitely come again if the bed was firmer.
