About the property

Pool, Canal with Dock and walking distance to the beach! 2/2/

Flamingo Nest is located on beautiful Flamingo Cay and is a 2/2 with canal views from every room! This pet friendly home is convenient to the Bradenton/Sarasota area for shopping and restaurants but yet only 2.8 miles from Anna Maria Island and its famous beaches but priced affordably. From your private dock you can access Palma Sola Bay and Anna Maria Island and then on to the Gulf of Mexico!

The home boasts a king master suite, a queen guest room, guest bath and another small guest area with a futon. Relax on the recently purchased and comfortable living room furniture and enjoy the Flat Screen TV, CD player and Wi-Fi Internet access.

Palma Sola Causeway beach & boat launch area are within walking distance from the home. There you can enjoy kayaking, jet skiing, paddle boarding, Horse Surfing and just plain old walking your dog as it is the only pet friendly beach in the area! Not enough to do? Walk to Robinson Preserve, a 600 plus acre salt marsh, home to jumping Mullet and hundreds of other species of fish and marine life. Hiking paths, bike trails, kayak and canoe waterways, bridges, picnic spots, mangrove forests and a 53 foot tower with an incredible view of Tampa bay await you.

Finally had enough? Take your boat back to your private dock and relax by the large caged pool with your frozen Margarita in hand! If you bring your boat we must be notified and your trailer must be of a size to fit in a standard garage. Trailers cannot be left in the driveway!

RELAX and ENJOY!!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Frankford, Mo. Beth Trautwein and Richard Scott (not the governor) had a most pleasant staff. Heidi, (15 years) and Mr. Finkerbean (7 years) felt right at home and we think your selection of this neighborhood is just perfect-we may be back before you know it. Your neighbor John was so helpful and sailing was very lovely-first time we could anchor and just go out when we wanted. Hope you have many happy years here!

Enjoyable rental

  • 4 of 5

Nice place to stay could use some updates and was a bit noisy do to the neighbor putting an addition on his house. But we really enjoyed the pool and seeing the manatee off the docks. Overall this was great for us as the neighbors were really friendly and it was an affordable stay. Thanks

Owner's Response: Chad, We do apologize about the noise next door but as I am sure you know we don’t have a lot of control over that but they are wonderful folks as you mentioned. The home does need some updates and we have several being planned for the first of September including new windows out on the lanai area by the pool and all new flooring! Hope to see you back to visit with the Manatees!

The pool is the best part

  • 3 of 5

We thought the house was in great location and the pool was lovely.

All though, the house could do with some tlc.

A little scruffy and lack of attention to detail in places.

Owner's Response: Hannah, So glad you enjoyed the pool and the location of the property! As we discussed we agree that the home is in need of some TLC and you are one of the last guests before we arrive to redo all the floors and various other things that are needed. Our home is so popular that we have had constant renters and it is very difficult to try to get everything done in the few hours in between. We do appreciate your comments and please come back to see all the improvements we are making in September of this year!

Very nice house. Had everything you needed.

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful time. Had some.bad weather at first but enjoyed playing games that were at the

house. Love the location. Used the pool a lot. Only issue we had was leaving the air conditioner on 72. We are uses to a little cooler. But tuned fans on and we were fine. One of the best parts was on Sunday we were greeted by a manatee and on Friday before we left we were greeted by 4 manatees. Even a momma and a baby. Thanks for opening your home to us!!

Owner's Response: Rebecca and Family, So sorry that Mother Nature did not cooperate with the first couple of days of your vacation but so glad you enjoyed the games that are available and the pool and location. The Manatee’s are a joy to watch especially when they bring the babies along. I could sit on the dock forever and watch them. You are obviously used to colder weather than us Floridians as we normally keep our AC somewhere between 76 and 78! 72 is extremely cold for us but glad the fans did the trick! Thanks for taking the time to review our home and please do come back and see us soon!

Owner's Response: Suzanne, Thanks for the review and glad you enjoyed your stay at Flamingo Nest. We certainly enjoyed having you and that you found the home clean and ready with everything you needed. I believe you mean the en suite bathroom in the master when you are referring to the small bathroom. It is a bit small but ample for our needs with a good size stand up shower. We do have plans to update it after the coming season so please come back and visit.

Family Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

This property is amazingly located near every thing the gulf has to offer. kayaking, jet ski, boating and any type of water sports you're attracted to. The beach is just a few minutes away where you could spot dolphins swimming along peacefully. Manatees come see you almost every day in the backyard. They aren't enough words to describe how beautiful this place is. This has truly been by far the best experience we had as a family vacation. We'll be back for more.

Owner's Response: Paul, Thank you for reviewing Flamingo Nest, I’m glad you found our place the perfect vacation home! It’s nice to hear that you took advantage of some of the many things our home has to offer. We love when the manatees come over to visit us by the pool and we would love for you to come back and visit anytime! We hope you also got to enjoy Robinson Preserve which is just across the street and offers some incredible wildlife viewing while hiking or biking along the numerous trails. There's also an observation tower with great views of the Manatee River and surrounding Bay area!

Owner's Response: William and Family, I’m glad that you enjoyed your stay at Flamingo Nest and had the opportunity to meet some of our friendly neighbors. We love our home for the same reasons that you do; it’s easy to get to, very peaceful and yet so close to Anna Maria Island! We really like walking around the area enjoying everything that nature has to offer. Sometimes we are lucky enough where nature finds us in the form of manatees swimming in our canal! We look forward to your return!

Map

Nearest Beach
0.5 Miles
Palm Sola Causeway or Anna Maria Island
Car: necessary

Anna Maria Island is located on the Central West Coast of Florida nestled between the tropical blue waters of the Gulf of Mexico to the West and Tampa Bay to the North. Once a best –kept secret among local Floridians, it is now known as a vacation favorite among local, national and international travelers. From honeymooners to Hollywood film crews, youngsters to the young-at-heart, people from around the world have discovered what’s awaiting you – Your Piece of Paradise, 'An Island In The Sun'…

The island consists of 3 cities, Bradenton Beach being the southernmost, Holmes Beach in the middle and Anna Maria City on the Northern tip. Each community has its own distinct character but all have that relaxed old Florida Charm with unique and charming shops and restaurants.

Anna Maria Island has miles of sugar white sand beaches, sand dunes, sea oats and Australian Pines lying between the Gulf of Mexico and the Intercoastal Waterway. This destination is a natural choice for tropical vacationers looking for golf, tennis, water sports, shopping, plus many cultural and historical attractions. Located close to all the major attractions, yet far from the maddening crowds make the Gulf Island Beaches the ideal vacation spot.

Enjoy a sunrise overlooking Tampa Bay and a picture-perfect Florida sunset all in a day…

You need never leave the island to find fun and relaxation. Our island is only 7 miles long and no more than a few blocks wide which leaves you with sounds of waves and visions of the sunset in every location. Enjoy a day at the beach and watch the kids play in the sand. Walk along pristine beaches and dine in award-winning restaurants, Enjoy fresh grouper sandwiches on a pier and sipping martinis while enjoying live music. Go shopping in our specialty shops and boutiques all along the island. We even have a Free Trolley to take you where you want to go. The friendly environment and endless activities will keep you coming back for more. Hop aboard and experience island paradise!
