I don't think it could be any better than this

  • 5 of 5

The stay was better than I ever expected it. Everyone was so helpful, you don't need to worry about a thing. beach Umbrellas, chairs, towels, laundry/dryer machine are all provided. Besides, being across the street from the beach, the quick access to the free trolley, and plenty of places to eat allow for a great vacation. But what I think really made it worry-free was the team of this location. I brought my lady here for her birthday getaway and she said it could not have been any better. She loved everything about how everyone was so friendly and how well we were taken care of. If you are looking for an intimate relaxing getaway with minimal worries, please look no further than this location.

Great little bungalow!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect little bungalow across the street from the beach. We spent three days here with our daughter and her husband for Mother’s Day. It’s a great location for walking to most everything. Very well stocked with everything you need, and I mean everything, there was even a small bottle of nail polish remover. Loved the white noise machine in the bedroom for sleeping as you are on a very busy road, although inside you didn’t hear any road noise. Decorated very beachy. The owner and caretakers were always close by for any problems, which we had none. We parked two cars without a problem although the cars do block your view while sitting under the pergola. Just a couple of very tiny suggestions ; it would be nice to have another skillet in the kitchen, one isn’t enough when cooking breakfast, a square stove top griddle would be a big plus. According to our daughter the sofa bed wasn’t great, as with most pull out beds, so maybe a foam topper might be nice.

Another suggestion to Randy is he should put a name on his property so when people ask where we were staying we wouldn’t have to say “ that little yellow place by the bridge”, I love seeing the names people come up with for their vacation homes, like naming a boat. We had a great time on this island, lots of different types of restaurants, all the wait staff were very nice and friendly we will be back. Thanks Randy, Brenda and Mike we enjoyed your piece of paradise!

Owner's Response: Thanks guys for your stay and also your feedback, we appreciate it very much. Consider the recommendations done! We do have a name of the property, it is Bradenton Beach Sunsets and is on our VRBO listing, but guess we need to put a sign up. Thanks again and we look forward to having you back! Randy

This was our first time using VRBO and it was a good first impression. The unit we rented was very well taken care of thanks to Brenda. We had everything we needed for our 10 day stay..... including beach chairs and towels. Brenda was a phone call away to answer any questions we had or if there was a problem. The owner, Randy Allen, stopped by to meet us and to make sure everything was to our satisfaction. We would definitely rent from Randy again and highly recommended VRBO and this property.
