Paradise At The Bayou Waterfront Condo At Tip Of The Island Steps To The Beach

Bedrooms 2
Property type condo
Minimum Stay 7 nights


About the property

2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, Sleeps 4

This water front, two bedroom condominium (ground floor), sits on the end of Pine Avenue, across the street from the beach and has wonderful seaside views of the bay. It also has its own private fishing dock and boat slip! This unit has been completely remodeled and newly furnished to give you the simple, yet beautiful and luxurious sea side cottage feel. White sandy beaches with all the comforts of home. You can pack light, hop on a plane, boat or car and come to our paradise. Relax and enjoy all the great island fare, night life, shopping, kayaking, fishing, swimming and more, making this the perfect get away. Have your breakfast outside on the porch as you watch white egrets and ibises skim the water for fish, take a stroll on the beach, or take a bike and explore the island. Kayak along the many inlets of the bayou or out to the sandy beaches for a picnic. Then after visiting one of the many fine shops along Pine Avenue, relax on the dock with your favorite island drink and watch the sunset. Visit one of the various dining establishments on the island, or just plan on a fine meal at the condo with all that you need at your finger tips. We have even included some of our favorite island recipes if you are feeling adventurous.

Take the free trolley that runs the length of the Island to Bradenton Beach, passing through Holmes Beach which sits in the center of this peaceful island. The mainland can be reached via two bridges which extend from the eastern shore towards Bradenton. The southern tip reaches out across the intra-coastal towards Longboat Key and Sarasota. Visit St Armand's Circle for the best designer shopping on the West Coast or head to Walt Disney World and the other Orlando attractions which are just two hours away. However, you can also just get a taxi from Tampa airport and rent a golf cart, remaining on the island, completely absorbing the beauty and tranquility along with the quaintness of its nightlife.

Great Stay at the Bayou

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our recent week-long stay and Greg and Lori's condo. The location is perfect - a two minute walk to the bay beach and about a 10 minute walk to the beautiful gulf beach. Plenty of dining and shopping options within walking distance. Everything you could want is there for your use. We used the beach chairs and cooler nearly every day. There are also two kayaks available. The waterfront view is very nice. We enjoyed sitting on the porch with a drink every afternoon. Check-in is a piece of cake, and the free parking space is just outside the front door. We would definitely stay here again.

Clean well maintained property with a great view!!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed at this property over the Christmas holiday through New Years. My wife and adult son stayed as well. Plenty of room for 4 people if you choose. The spare bedroom has two twin beds in it, the master bedroom has a queen bed. The master bedroom also contains a over/under washer-dryer in the closet. This was not a problem because there is a huge closet in the spare bedroom. It was also very nice having the washer dryer available as my wife noted. Unit also contains a small patio with a table and two chairs. It was used plenty by us. The unit also contains plenty of extras to use including kayaks, life jackets, paddles and other water related items. We met other people within the complex who were all very friendly. You are also allotted a parking space which is well marked. Restaurants are also plentiful and within walking distance of the unit. There is also a free shuttle bus that takes you around the island. The unit itself is quiet and well maintained by the owners. I cannot think of anything I would change. Should we visit the island again I would definitely stay at this unit.

A wonderful place

  • 5 of 5

We stayed there for two weeks and it was really perfect. The location is great and the condo is too. Easy to walk to restaurants but just as easy to stay in and cook. The fact it was fully stocked with dishes, pans and even some spices made it all so easy.

Fantastic vacation condo in prime location!

  • 5 of 5

This vacation condo was clean, comfortable and well equipped with household items, beach accessories and in-suite laundry. It's located in the best part of Anna Maria Island, directly across from the beach and City Pier. Restaurants and shops are also within walking distance. Our family of four had more than enough space and we also enjoyed the additional outdoor space (bistro table & chairs on the patio and the dock). The condo has a great view of the canal and my kids enjoyed fishing off the condo's boat dock. We've rented twice before on Anna Maria Island, but this was, by far, our favourite. We hope to be back next summer and I would definitely recommend it to others!
