Overview

Bradenton Beach Cottage Rental Photos and Description

2 Bed, 1.5 Bath, Expandable To 12 capacity when Sister Property Is Booked

*NOTE: If you cannot find availability for this unit, please check the additional unit, located at the same address under VRBO listing 506799. The layout, rooms and rates are the same.

Thank you for considering my home which has been recently updated to provide the warmth and feel of a true beach cottage. Wooden ceiling planks have been added along with pine beach chic cabinets and decor. I put many hours into the design of the home to provide a feeling of tropical relaxation. The location of the duplex home is within walking distance to the beach but tucked away from the hustle and bustle of beach traffic and other vacationers.

The home sits between the gulf beaches and the bay, but is truly in the middle of everything Anna Maria Island has to offer. Free Trolley rides (every 20 minutes) allow easy travel through out the island to restaurants/bars and historic sights. Located in the city of Bradenton Beach, which has a smaller more private beach in comparison to others nearby. We are also within walking distance to the bay which offers a baseball and basketball court, playground, and a small area to launch canoes or kayaks.

LIVING SPACE...

The elevated property has been lovingly restored in 2013, boasting a full kitchen with standard size stainless steel appliances and granite counter tops. There are flat-screen TVs in every room, Blu Ray/DVD player, and free wireless high-speed internet access throughout the house.

Accommodations

The master bedroom has a memory foam queen bed and an en-suite bathroom. The second bedroom has two twin beds that can be converted into a king bed, and is off the living/dining area with private access to the second shared bathroom. The family room area has a sleeper sofa that can easily provide sleeping accommodations for 2 additional guests.

Amenities

Central Heat and AC, BBQ Grill, Washer/Dryer, LCD Flat Screen TV's, Cable TV, Blue Ray/DVD Players, Microwave, Blender, Toaster, Full Kitchen, Linens and Towels provided. Housekeeping provided upon request (additional fee). This property will accommodate up to 6 adults and has onsite parking for multiple vehicles, RVs or boats.

For Larger Parties

Check out the sister property which includes an adjoining door to this property, expanding to sleep up to 12 guests.

Why Justin chose Anna Maria Island

It's off the beaten path, literally tucked away between the gulf and bay. Plus, it was a home that needed a complete renovation. I love home improvement projects and interior design is a passion of mine. This property gave me the opportunity to wipe the slate clean and create exactly the beach house I wanted.

What makes this cottage unique

There is a beach trolley stop within a short distance of my place, making it easy to roam across the island without much effort. Plus there is a small private park one street over and on the bay which is nice for my son to play with his nephews. Of course, walking to the beach is wonderful as well.

Great vacation!

  • 4 of 5

My kids and I had a great time! The property is conveniently located a short walk from the beach. There is a park with play ground equipment and basketball court a block away. Everything was updated and beautifully decorated. I was very excited to find everything we needed, even beach chairs and umbrellas!

The cottage needs work

  • 2 of 5

For a rental cottage that is professional managed, maintained and cleaned, I expected to have just that. When we arrived on Wednesday, the trash cans in the front were tipped over with trash on the ground. The password for the internet that was sent to me was wrong...it was in all caps in your email-not lower case. The laundry room was a mess so when I contacted Justin about the password, I also told him about the laundry room. Saturday, the day before we left, it was picked up. The trash can in the house was dirty with coffee grinds in the bottom of the can and the trash can lid was stained and dirty. There was no dishwasher detergent in the kitchen and no kitchen towels. The kitchen and cooking utensils are just stashed in cabinets and a mess. The twin beds were made with no top sheet. Most of the sheets and towels in the cottage were stained, so we questioned if they were clean or not. The topper was the shower curtain. A plastic shower curtain is $3....in a rental property, you have a dirty, stained shower curtain that is knotted up on the rod. Brilliant! Your place needs some tender loving care before renting to someone else.

Wonderful place to stay

  • 5 of 5

My family and I rented both sides and it was wonderful. The home came with everything you needed. We did have a problem with the A/C unit but Justin got someone out there very quickly. They were unable to repair the unit so Justin brought a window unit so the house would be cool. Perfect place to stay on the island!

Great beach rental for first time AMI visitors!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I came to AMI for our Honeymoon for the sole purpose of pure relaxation, beach bumming in the warm sun (we're from NY and it was still quite chilly in early May!) and simply enjoying each others company away from the hectic pace of NYC and stressful wedding planning and our very vibrant 2 young sons, haha.. Simply put, it was perfect. Our good friend had recommended AMI to us and we cannot thank her enough. Once we contacted Karlene, communication with her & Justin was friendly & quick & very accommodating the entire time. This beach rental was just what we were looking for, it was clean, cozy, convenient location, really cute, the decor was beachy but not kitschy, the 2 block proximity to the beach as well as the bay was perfect. Great central midpoint location on the island, we were able to visit the northern end of the island as well as the southern end and never drove more than 10 or 15 minutes to get there, it was amazing. Restaurants on the island are amazing, we didn't encounter bad food anywhere, fresh seafood every day, local farm to table menus, just amazing. The layout of the beach cottage was bright and open & airy upon entry & the 2 bathrooms were nice & clean as were the bedrooms although we didn't use the guest bedroom with the twin beds, but it was very cozy & if we decide to come back with our kids this would be the perfect rental for us! Flat screen TV's in the living room & bedrooms were a plus, full size refrigerator, dishwasher, laundry room, beach chairs & beach towels (used every single day!), beach toys, (if you come with kids you're set!) bikes, the covered outdoor seating area with hammock was great. There is a sweet little journal at the table near the entryway where past guests left little Thank you letters & notes & we thought that was a really sweet touch and really nice to read about all the great stays this cottage has seen. It was a really wonderful experience & we will definitely recommend this rental to anyone visiting AMI!
