5-Star Beach Home Literally Steps To White Sandy Gulf Beach!

Overview

Property Details

Updated: Sep 14, 2014
House, 4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, 8 Sleeps

What makes our rental home special? The photos below do that for the most part, but don't do the home justice. The views of the Gulf from the master bedroom and master bath are amazing! The serene blue-green Gulf waters...the brilliant orange and blue sunsets...the smell and sound of the surf...will lower your blood pressure and make you feel good to be alive!

My husband and I love the beach - Negril, Jamaica, and Ocean City, New Jersey are our favorites. When we retired we looked for a place that had the best of both beaches - we found it in Bradenton Beach, Florida. It is safer than Negril, and less crowded and less commercial than Ocean City. My husband says it reminds him of the Jersey shore in the early 60's.

The beach is 170 steps from our door (my gait!), and is never crowded, not even during the peak winter season. It almost feels like it's our own private beach.

There is plenty to do here. The restaurants are great. Everything on the Island is accessible via the free open-air trolley that runs by our house every twenty minutes.

There are fishing piers and marinas for those who like to fish. They say Anna Maria Island has the best fishing on the West Coast of Florida.

Like to shop? World-famous St. Armand's Circle and Sarasota are minutes away. Prime Outlet (130 designer and brand-name outlet stores) is nearby, but not too close to threaten your vacation budget!

Have kids, or just want to act like one? Busch Gardens in about an hour away, and Disney World 2 hours.

My husband and I just returned from a week's stay at Jen and Joe's lovely vacation home on Bradenton Beach, Florida. The house was exactly as advertised, beautifully decorated, well-maintained, well-stocked, and perfectly located. The master bedroom is awesome, especially the divinely comfortable king size bed and balcony off from the bedroom. The master bath has a very nice jetted garden tub and good-sized tiled shower. We have stayed at numerous vacation homes, and this is by far one of the best. Jen and Joe are perfect hosts and very helpful. They answered every one of our questions before our trip, and made it clear to contact them if we had any problems during our stay. They are proud of their home, and rightly so. We will definitely be coming back. We stayed during the cold snap that hit the nation, including Florida. Despite unusually cold weather for this area, we found every day to still be perfectly fine to go out on the beautiful beaches and fishing piers in the area. We didn't come to shop, but found delightful shops on the island, particularly at St. Armands Circle, and in Sarasota and Venice. We ended up buying another suitcase to bring back the things we purchased! We have fallen in love with this little bit of paradise. There isn't a better place to experience it than in Jen and Joe's lovely vacation home, which is located right across the road from a lovely white, sandy beach.

A Terrific Choice!

  • 5 of 5
A well-appointed, spacious beach house! Bring your suitcase and plan on reclaiming your solace in a beautiful house, at a great beach and in a tiny, quant town. The owners are very attentive to insure a wonderful experience.
We rent beach houses many times a year. This house is, without a doubt, an outstanding vacation rental. We will be back.

AWESOME!

  • 5 of 5
This first class house is in a wonderful location and only steps from the beautiful sandy beach. Tastefully decorated throughout, it can only be described as the perfect family home.
The master bedroom is very spacious and the balcony is the perfect place to relax with a cocktail whilst watching the glorious sunset.
There are numerous restaurants nearby to cater for all needs and if you're looking for shops that are a little unique then head to nearby St. Armands Circle.
Joe and Jen are terrific hosts and offer sound advice on anything you care to ask! Anna Maria Island is certainly a special place and we'd have no hesitation in recommending this property. In fact, we loved it so much that we've already booked it for next year!

Lovely Home At Bradenton Beach!

  • 5 of 5
Thank you for a lovely stay at Bradenton Beach!! The home was clean, nicely furnished and decorated. The kitchen is well stocked with everything you need. The house comes with beach chairs, floats and wagon to haul things to the beach....which is very short walk! Love the town and the many local places to eat and shop. Would most certainly come back!!

Happy Guest

  • 5 of 5
This property was perfect for our family of 8, including 2 young children. The home was clean and well maintained. There were four decks which provided social respite. The owners were very helpful and sociable. The gulf view from the upper deck and the sunsets were awesome. The beach is only a short block away. I would definitely recommend this property to friends and relatives.

Great vacation rental!

  • 5 of 5
We had a full house and an amazing time! Joe and Jen's attention to detail was great. They were glad to give us suggestions for local places to visit and restaurants to eat. This is the best bang for the buck we've seen so far. You can take the trolley all over the island and it's a short walk to the beach. Treat their home as you would your own and they'll bend over backwards for you. Thanks Joe & Jen!!
