This beautiful three-bedroom, two-bath vacation rental sits on a tiny slip of land on the south end of Anna Maria Island in the city of Bradenton Beach. Located in Coquina Moorings, a small private condo complex, this end unit accommodates six and offers a heated pool, private boat slips and fishing pier, and is just across the street from the beautiful Gulf of Mexico beach. With windows in every room, you'll enjoy the expansive water views of both the Gulf and the Intracoastal Waterway.
With a king bed in the master, two twins and a twin with pop-up trundle in the other bedrooms there is enough space for the entire family. The fully-equipped kitchen allows for a great eat in-evening inside, or out on the balcony. In fact, there are two separate spacious balconies screened with glass sliders! For inside entertainment, there are flat screen televisions with DVD players in the living room and all three bedrooms. Plus, you can enjoy free high speed wireless internet and free local and long distance calling to the U.S., Canada and Puerto Rico.
Start your day on the rear screened balcony watching the sunrise over the ICW with a view of Sarasota Bay. Walk to the dock to fish or just watch the birds, boats and an occasional manatee or dolphin. Lounge in the heated pool or spend the day on the white sand beach. Take a walk to Leffis Key at Coquina Beach nature preserve, or stroll to Bridge Street for some shopping. Hop on the free AMI trolley and explore the island and maybe check out the historic Anna Maria City Pier and Park or shop Anna Maria. Do all this and then come back in time to relax on the front balcony to watch a stunning Gulf sunset.

This was our 7th trip to Anna Maria Island staying in Bay to Beach. The condo is exactly that, walk out the back door, your at the bay, walk out the front door, to the beach! You could not ask for a more convenient location. Walking across the street to the pristine, clear waters of the gulf of mexico and fishing off the dock out back. It's the best of both worlds! Not to mention the close proximity to everything. So close to all of the dining and nightlife on the island and the shopping and the waterfront destinations. We made good use of the free trolley system on the island which has a stop right out front of the condo. It stops every 2-4 blocks and is totally free! The condo has everything that you could need. It really does feel like a home away from home. Three spacious bedrooms and ample living space for the 4 (used to be 5) of us to live comfortably. I wouldn't stay anywhere else on the island! There is a pool that is well maintained, as well as grills and a smoker out back for everyone to use. Don't let yourself miss the sunsets! It's as simple as looking up the time and walking across the street to the beach. You can also see dolphins as you sit on the beach! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
My sister and I wanted to get away, and I found this gem. We stayed for eight days and found that it wasn't enough time. The condo was perfect. Yes, the construction of new piers directly acrossed the road showed up in many of my sunset pictures, but this is forgivable. Not the owners fault and the construction it self did not in any way effect our vacation. Everything we needed was right at our fingertips, from beach towels to cooking. The only items I found that I needed was spices and paper products. We were able to walk to many restrurants, and with the free trolley just steps away, those that we couldn't walk to we just hopped on and got off whenever our bellies grumbled or wanted a nice cool drink ;). With Tampa only an hour away , we took the time to go up to Bush Gardens and the Hard Rock Casino. Off Shore fishing is less then five minutes from the condo and I would highly recommend H2O Watersportz. Capt. Phill and first mate Andrew made sure we had a perfect day! To wrap this up, It was such a perfect vacation that before we left, we booked it for 2 weeks next year. Looking forward to Island time already.
What a great place, the ocean on one side and the intercoastal on the other! Our family arrived after staying in a mediocre rental near Disney so we weren't expecting much. What a surprise to see the spaciousness, cleanliness, and abundant supplies for our stay! The pool was beautiful and our granddaughter had a blast. I loved having such a beautiful view of the sunrise from the large back lanai and sunset from the front. We walked everywhere, to Leffis Key, the bridge to Longboat Key to see dolphins, Bridge Street and Bradenton Beach Pier with Happy Hour at AMOB, and especially the Gulf beach. Mmmmmm.... We had a fantastic time and would love to visit again; one week just wasn't enough. Our only complaint was the construction going on right across the street which we realize was an unforeseen problem and not something you can control. Thank you for sharing your beautiful place!
My wife and I and our guests could not have been happier with this condo. We had become concerned when someone posted a negative review after we had already booked our stay for late January. We had even considered canceling but are SO glad we didn't. We enjoyed every minute at Coquina Moorings and appreciated all the amenities provided by the owner of the unit that helped to make our stay relaxing and comfortable. We often spent the entire day there, just going from condo to pool to dock to beach...beautiful everywhere! And the days we spent exploring, we always looked forward to coming back to relax and watch the sunset from the lanai, and then wake up to the sunrise from the beautiful master bedroom in the morning. Rereading the one negative review, I have to wonder if we even stayed in the same unit. The place was spotless and very nicely decorated, everything was in working condition and everything we needed for the week was provided. We have wonderful memories of our stay and look forward to returning soon.
This is the most beautiful place to stay on Anna Maria Island. You can see the Sun Set from one balcony and the sun rise from the other. The beach is across the street from the front of your condo with beautiful white sand. The bay is your view from the back of the condo. There is a dock to fish off of and also can you dock a boat you rent or own. There is a heated pool in the back with plenty of lounge chairs. The wall around the pool keeps you warm even when cold everywhere else. We had unusual cold weather for this time of year, however by the pool it felt 10 degrees warmer. You can walk or bike to see many of the views, gift shows and restaurants, There is also a complimentary bus that takes you around the island. It is a quick ride to Long Boat Key, where there are many shops and restaurants. The inside of the condo is beautifully decorated and clean. It has all the amenities of home. We look forward to our next stay.
This property has everything you need to have a wonderful and stress free vacation. The unit is beautiful in an excellent location just steps from the beach with a beautiful heated pool and docks on the bay in back. Water on both sides! The inside is just as the pictures show. Plenty of space to spread out with large lanais, a well equipped and functional kitchen, and TVs in each bedroom. In fact, I found the two guest room TVs have CD players, which was great for the kids. Plus free wifi. The owner has clearly taken the time to make sure everything needed would be there including beach chairs, and beach towels and a well equipped kitchen. And we found it clean and ready when we arrived. You can walk to Bridge Street where there are places to eat, and shops, and the pier. The beach across the street is just beautiful with wonderful sunsets visible from the front lanai and bedroom. And we found you can see a beautiful sunrise over the bay if you are up early. Right from the master bedroom and back lanai! I will be back, and will definitely tell all my friends and family.
Beach, fun and sun!
