About the property

3BR/2BA Newly Renovated Downstairs Unit With Pool - Steps To The Beach!

Newly renovated, spacious vacation home in Bradenton Beach - just across the street from the white sand and blue waters of award winning Coquina Beach!

Al's Dream is the downstairs unit of a two unit complex that makes up Cottages By the Sea. This beautiful home was recently renovated with the charm of the old south and the modern amenities that travelers want to have the perfect vacation! Comfortable seating, sleek fixtures, and new appliances will make Al's Dream, YOUR dream! Enjoy HGTV and wireless internet for all of your entertainment needs.

The kitchen is fully equip to make everything from that morning cup of coffee to be enjoyed on the big southern front porch, to a family dinner made up from your catch of the day and Farmers Market finds. There is plenty of seating indoor and outdoor to gather as a family, or a group of friends to celebrate the sunshine and sea!

The master bedroom has a king sized bed, with a master bathroom. Take full advantage of stepping out from the back door onto the deck and pool area where you can enjoy a nightcap or get in one more chapter of your beach reads! The second bedroom has a queen sized bed, and right off the living room is the third bedroom with two twin beds.

The beauty of this home extends to the lush backyard with a (shared) pool, outdoor seating, and gas grill. The location in proximity to the beach is superb! Right across the street, a 2 minute walk... and you have found paradise! The large front porch is private for your use only! Kick off your flip flops, grab a sweet tea and enjoy the abundance of Gulf breezes.

While there are plenty of bed linens, beach towels, and bath towels, there is a washer and dryer to save your suitcase from sand on the way home!

The upstairs unit, called Angie's Place, is sweet as can be, with just as much personality as Al's Dream. The 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom unit has a private balcony off the kitchen with views of the Gulf and a balcony off the bedroom overlooking the pool. Rent both units and sleep 10 of your friends or family comfortably.

Al's Dream is Now Our Dream

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home in a great location! Kitchen is well-stocked with good cookware and very nice dinnerware, great appliances, plenty of seating. Patio and pool area are gorgeous. Everything was in great shape and very clean. Only suggestion we have is please provide better fitting fitted sheets and better quality pillows for master bedroom. Other than that, we were very comfortable and loved our stay in this special Cottage by the Sea!

AMAZING... PERFECT...

  • 5 of 5

We travel often (2-3 vacations annually) and this is by far the BEST place that we stayed at. This includes hotels or private houses. You can't beat the location and décor in this rental. The attention to detail put into every piece of this house is remarkable. We immediately tried to book this location for the following year, but it was already booked. We had the pleasure of meeting Al, what a great guy and all we can say is, GREAT JOB AL!" I would recommend this property to anybody.

Key west Chic!

  • 5 of 5

We loved als dream for a number of reasons. First, it's super cute and key west Chic, inside and out. Right across the street from the beach, even though you have to cross the street, the cars always stop and let you go. The backyard pool was a bonus and the patio/pool area was very well appointed and very cute. The only thing I would do differently next year is to rent the upstairs unit for additional family or friends to stay, as mid week, a family came to stay in the upstairs unit and we had to share the pool and patio area.

2017 Spring Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed the cottage and all the amenities that it had to offer. The location to the beach was wonderful, and the pool was a perfect place to read a book, and relax.
