About Mike

Mike is a U. S. C. G. master licensed captain and advanced scuba diver that is knowledgeable about the area. Mike is friendly, has enjoyed raising a family, working, and living in beautiful Bradenton for over 21 years, only a couple miles away from this beautiful panoramic beach view property and has no plans to leave.

"Our goal & wishes at Salty Living Island Rentals is that you have what you need and sincerely enjoy your stay... When you leave take mostly good memories, a few sand dollars, and many dreams of returning…"


Mike purchased this villa in 2012

Why Mike chose Anna Maria Island

Capt. Mike, owner of Salty Living Island Rentals & Property Services, LLC. (SLRPS) Purchased this 2 story / 4-plex located right in the center of beautiful Bradenton Beach because of its location and proximity to the Beach, City Park, and the Bay. The property has plenty of room with 5 on site parking spaces (for 4 villas), two assigned parking spaces for the upstairs villa, one accessible from the front (west) & / or one from the rear (east, separate entrance) of the building. Addition public parking is on the East side of the building a short 1/2 block away for weddings or day time visitors.

What makes this villa unique

When you stay here you can park your car and forget it (recommended). Everything you need is right here within walking distance or a short free Trolley ride away. The sand dollar white beach has natural wading pools just past the surf. Sometimes there is no surf at all, which is popular with relaxation seeking rafters. Wave runners, sail boats, kayaks, beach scuba (ask me), and other water craft rentals are a short walk down the beach. Just let Capt. Mike know what type of water sport or leisure activity you wish for before or during your stay and he'll be happy to point you in the right direction…

Wedding parties can walk from this location to the Beach House restaurant (across the street) or the Gulf Drive cafe (across the street & just north on the beach) for all wedding arrangements...

mostly great with a few major problems

  • 3 of 5

This is a very well-appointed rental with beautiful views. However, it is at a very busy/noisy intersection so while the beach looks beautiful from the deck you cannot have a conversation with the person sitting next to you without having to yell or repeat yourself.

The AC broke early in our stay. I was trying to work from home so this was a major inconvenience. While this is "vacation rental by owner" you will be dealing with a rental agent at a local real estate company. She was nice but condescending about the AC problem, not believing that it was broken. She said to set it to 76 so it "reset" and we spent a very hot night waiting for a repair. The following day the repairman said it needed a motor and the 76 reset thing was false. Also I contacted the owner via VRBO in-mail about the AC issue and he said it was a new unit and asked for our patience. The repair person said the unit is 5 years old. This ordeal took almost a full 24 hours to be resolved, but we were not offered a rebate for one night. Also the following night the rental agent told me to set the AC to 73 and "use blankets" if we had to to let it run. So we went from too hot to too cold.

Once the AC was fixed and running, it was more or less able to keep up with the direct afternoon sun. The views were nice but this apartment is probably very hot in the summertime. Also there is a lot of street noise. There are a lot of rentals on the island to choose from, and I suspect there are others in this price range that are quieter and have reliable climate control.

Owner's Response: The review given is primarily about the air conditioner. It is important to note that the A/C was working on your arrival and was repaired (relay switch replaced) the very next day after it was reported, during your Christmas/New Years stay. This repair was covered under the less than 5 year warranty. I have met the majority of my tenants and use my property management, plus 24/7 service for added benefits/response times to my vacationers. Although I was on vacation, I stayed in contact with you during (via email) and post your stay by phone follow-up. *Please read previous reviews.

Week to destress!

  • 5 of 5

I arrive 10/26 on a last minute vacation with no place to stay. I was a little concerned booking something I had not seen but all the positive reviews you read about these villa's are exactly what you get, any negative reviews, well some people are never happy. I contacted Mike that morning and he was able to set me up with a single villa that came with everything you would need for your stay. A fully equipped kitchen with everything you would need to cook and bake with. I had nothing for the beach but Mike did! Beach chairs, umbrella, cooler, beach towels and even a beach cart to carry it on. I walked into the villa and it smelled clean and was very updated. The bed and sheets were soft and comfortable and the entire place was clean and never saw one bug the entire stay. The villa's are about the middle of Gulf drive and puts you within walking distance of everything. I will definitely return to Mikes villa's in the future, they had a relaxing home feel to them and I would recommend them to anyone. Thanks for taking such good care of me last minute Mike and getting me in my room so quickly your the best!
