Bay Rest - On Sarasota Bay - Yards to Gulf of Mexico Beach

Bradenton Beach Anna Maria Island
Fairfax Station, VA

Nice waterfront property closeto beach

  • 4 of 5
Nice waterfront property with boat dock. Since house is situated on waterfront away from main road, our stay was quiet and peaceful. It is a short walk across the street to the beach. Property has a pool with hot tub that the kids enjoyed. It was nicely furnished with everything we need to cook. Grocery stores are close by so we cooked most of the time during our stay. The owner provided bikes so the kids could bike along the beach and into town. Would definitely come here again!

Beautiful location with nice amenities

The property is lovely and peaceful with access to activities on the bay and a short walk to the Gulf of Mexico beach. Felt like a home away from home. I recommend it and would stay there again.

Do not trust

We were promised pool heat when we agreed to rent, but on arrival no heat in pool and hot tub.It was very disappointing to our daughter because she wanted to swim.This was one of the main reasons we rented this house.
The house also had only one unusable pan to cook with, and the hot water was luke warm.
If you wanted to use hot tub you had to call owner and wait four hours for hot tub to warm up.
I would not recommend renting this property for the price,the only nice thing about it is the location.

Owner's Response: The house is fully furnished from pots and pans to linens. If the renter needs something not provided, they need only to inform us and we will do our best to accomodate them. Our past experience is that renters unfamiliar with our pool equipment have unintentionally damaged it. Therefore we have a policy that only the owners can adjust the pool equipment. If renter makes known their pool needs upon arrival we will make arrangements to accomodate them. In this case, we believe there was a lack of communications. We are sorry for any inconvenience the renter felt.

  • Anna Maria Island Florida is an hour from Tampa and 2 hours from Orlando. This beautiful Island consists of three villages - each with its own personality - Bradenton Beach to the south end of the island, Anna Maria to the north and Holmes Beach in the middle. Just 7 miles long, the island has beautiful white sandy beaches, all water sports, shelling, tennis, nearby golf courses and great restaurants. The restaurants range between old island mystic to some of the best gourmet restaurants in the State of Florida.
