explore the rest of Anna Maria Island or maybe drive to a nearby golf course to play a round of golf or maybe you'd enjoy a game of tennis. If your family is in tow- you might want to explore some of the theme parks within an hour or two of this area.

Why Martin Finn chose Bradenton Beach

The location right across the street is what draws so many people to our home and why we fell in love with it- you can watch the sunsets directly from the upstairs deck if you choose or walk across the street and sit on the sand. It's only 7 streets down from the Bridge Street Roundabout and easily walkable to restaurants

Guestbook comments from the owner

My father and I have rented both the upstairs and the downstairs unit many times over the years at Christmas and during the summer. We have returned at least 7 times.

Everytime we have had a pleasant experience. The view from the upstairs deck is Priceless. Any problems that have come up have been handled quickly and professionally.

My father an I love the location just across the street from the beach and with in walking distance From all the shops. We plan on returning again in aug of this year and again at Christmas with my husband.

Fantastic location!

  • 5 of 5

This is our 3rd year at this location. The owner is easy to work with. We had some problems during our stay. Local management was immediately responsive to our situations. It was a relaxing stay with friendly and accommodating hosts.

Gorgeous Sunsets

  • 5 of 5

Four adult couples rented both upstairs and downstairs. We had plenty of space and were very comfortable. There is a well stocked kitchen in case you decide to cook. Beach towels and beach chairs so you can take advantage of the gorgeous white sand beach across the street. The location of this house couldn’t have been better. We took some amazing sunset pictures from the unobstructed view provided by the deck upstairs.

Any closer and you'd be ON the beach.

  • 4 of 5

We had a great month in this quaint house. It's so close to the beach we'd walk across the road in our bare feet and right onto the sand, and easily walk to the great shops and restaurants on Bridge St. AMI being so popular, there's always plenty of slow-moving traffic right outside your door, especially late afternoon, although we were there at the busiest possible time, March Break. The few minor repairs that needed doing while we were there were handled quickly and pleasantly. This being an older house, there was some noise from the upstairs neighbors -- best if you can rent the entire house. Overall a very pleasant experience. Also thanks, Martin, for welcoming our black lab, Maggie! Paul J.

Excellent Location and Beautiful Sunsets

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time over the holiday week at this property. We rented both the upstairs and downstairs flat. My family stayed upstairs and my in-laws were downstairs. The beach across the street allowed to either sit out on the beach and watch the glorious sunsets or set up on the deck. All attractions were also within a few blocks walk allowing us to not have to deal with traffic at all.

Beautiful Location at a great price

  • 5 of 5

We have been to AMI for many years and love this part of the island. When we found this place available, it was an easy pick for us with its proximity to Bridge Street and being right across the street from the beach. When we arrived, it did not disappoint. We rented both top and bottom to accommodate three families and had plenty of space for the 10 of us. The upstairs balcony has a gorgeous sunset view of the Gulf that in and of itself makes it a worthy rental. You will not be disappointed.

Steps from the beach!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our time (a month) at this beachy older two-flat cottage. We stayed in the lower apartment which consists of easy to clean floors rather than carpeting. It's location is right across from the beach and water but one must cross a rather busy street to get there. This was not a problem for us, however as cars will stop and many others also cross at this walkway to beach access. Not only is the location close to the Gulf, it is also within walking distance to several shops and restaurants and close driving distance to many attractions. In addition, there is a dog beach a short drive away.

With two bedrooms and baths, we had plenty of room for ourselves, any guests we might have and our two pets. The kitchen was adequate but short some cooking utensils which the kind housekeeper was able to supply from the other apartment above. I'm told kitchen supplies are being updated. We were able to meet the owner and he was kind and accommodating. We found the cost reasonable and very much enjoyed our stay.
