Our beautiful beach condo is on the most sought & narrow part of the island. The beach is steps away on one side & our fishing dock on the bay just steps away on the other. All the shops & restaurants within walking distance. Deluxe kitchen has premium appliances, granite tops, cherry cabinets & all your cooking/dining needs! This is the only unit with a PRIVATE outdoor screened lanai nestled under our tropical palms. PEACEFUL! Beach toys, fishing gear, beach cart, umbrella, towels, cooler incl!

The space

Location, location, location. The 3 most important things to consider in a vacation rental. Tucked back on a VERY peaceful setting. Private screened lanai and private outdoor covered patio set with umbrella. Nestled under several palms. There are no properties directly on this most narrow and most sought after part of island. We are tucked away on a tiny deadend street. No thru traffic means it's quite! About a 60 second walk to top 10 white powder & turquoise gulf water of top rated Bradenton Beach (Anna Maria Island) on one side & "stones throw" or, about 45 second walk in other direction to our fishing dock on Sarasota Bay. Sit on the dock, & enjoy the scenery, watch for dolphins manatee and birds, do some fishing, read a book, etc. Walk to many of the best hot spots just down the road. Best restaurants, Fishing Piers, historic Bridge St. etc. Enjoy our screened lanai that overlooks the lush natural garden in our courtyard. Sit out at night and watch as the palm trees light up at night.

This beach home is ground level with no stairs to maneuver! Paradise awaits!


Anna Maria Island
Anna Maria island is just seven miles long and is made up of three small cities: Bradenton Beach,
Holmes Beach, and Anna Maria at the north. No matter which direction you come, you must cross water
via a bridge. At the southern tip is Bradenton Beach. You can head north from Sarasota travel on to Longboat Key
and cross over a drawbridge on to Bradenton Beach. There are also two other drawbridges from the mainland of
Bradenton to come onto Anna Maria island. One way is via Manatee Avenue (SR 64 ) and the other is via Cortez Road.

AREA ATTRACTIONS

There's really a wide range of things to do here, if you want to have an action packed time you will find plenty.

This is where many of the rescued injured animals, occasional birds, turtles, etc are taken to recuperate and then are returned to nature.

We are one of only a handful of rental properties offering a $3000 water filtration system that eliminates all the chlorine and other chemicals added to the water. Much better for drinking and bathing. You will notice that your skin will be smoother and hair fuller. About the only things we don't provide are your flip flops and tooth brush!

Mark's rental property was spotlessly clean, extremely well equipped and within walking distance of the bay, beaches & main restaurant area. The house is part of a group which access the main outside seating area, with communal tables and a grill. We also had our own private outdoor area, although as we were there in July/August, we found it too hot and humid to sit outside of an evening. The beds are comfortable and although the whole place is cozy in size, it was more than adequate for our needs as a family of four (3 adults & one child). The kitchen is really well equipped with everything you need to prepare your own meals should you not wish to go out to eat. It also has all the basics (tea, coffee, oil, salt, pepper etc). We were also very appreciative of the generous stock of towels and especially the beach towels, which is rare in rental properties in my experience! The beach cart and chairs were invaluable & we used them daily. There are two massive washing machines and tumble driers on the property which we too full advantage of. We explored pretty much all of the beaches -- note that the closest one to the house has part of it under some sort of construction at the moment, but if you go a little further down to Coquina Beach, that is lovely. The house is a fabulous base to discover Anna Maria island from. We especially loved Bean Point right at the northern tip of the island. If you like wilder beaches, this is the place to come. Check-in and check-out were quick and as stated in the rental instructions. In fact, we arrived about an hour earlier and Mark texted me to let me know as soon as the cleaners had gone so that we could check-in earlier, which was much appreciated. My family and I would highly recommend renting this property & Anna Maria island - a beautiful part of the world we were delighted to get to know better.

The cottages are a wonderful place to stay. They are a short walk to the beach. Everything that you would need for your stay is included with the cottage - beach towels, beach cart, laundry facilities, detergent. The kitchen is stocked with everything that you need. There is a lot of thought that is put into what a vacationer would need. We were greeted by Mark and Liliana when we checked in. They were so friendly and helpful that it felt like we were staying with friends.

Our cottage was clean and cozy with a lovely enclosed courtyard shared among other guests. Beautiful beach just a minute's walk from our door. Very quiet too, which we liked.

Incredible location - hard to be closer to the beach and bay. Lots of restaurants less than a ten minute walk from the condo. The beaches are incredible / sand like white powder and crystal clear water. Highly recommend staying here - we might make it a yearly tradition.

Mark's place is in a great spot! Just a crossed the road from the beach and a short walk to bridge street. Our unit we stayed in was very comfortable, has everything we needed to make it home for our week. Mark was very nice and made us feel welcomed as soon as we arrived. Even gave my wife and I a bottle of wine for our anniversary. 10/10
