PRIVATE HEATED SALT-WATER POOL, ELEVATOR - 2 Minute Stroll Gulf Beach

Overview

About the property

4-Bedroom, 3 Bath, with Gulf Views

Go to Bottom of Amenities to Take a 3D Virtual Tour throughout this magnificent home! Amazing! Just like being in the home!

This is a fully-equipped vacation rental. Just bring your clothes and toiletries! Everything necessary for a great vacation is provided, and we mean everything.

The beach is a 2-minute stroll from the house. Beach carts, chairs, beach towels, and umbrella(s) are provided.

The elevator makes bringing in groceries and luggage a breeze - it is accessible from the carport to all living levels.

The pool is a private, saltwater, heated pool (temperatures can be set up to 84 degrees).

All bedding and towels are provided. Need something special - just ask.

The kitchen is fully equipped with all the cookware, dishes, etc. Every small appliance is provided. We love to cook and we equipped the kitchen as if we were going to live there. If you don't see what you need, we probably have it - so just ask.

There is dining seating for 12 inside and 6 outside. The master bedroom suite seats 6 on the veranda facing the Gulf of Mexico. Great for watching spectacular Gulf sunsets or just chilling out. 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!

Enough parking is provided for 4-5 cars.

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 Tampa is about an hour away, and Disney World 2 hours.

Property was well kept, pool was always clean. House was nicely done and had everything we needed. Jen & Joe were more than helpful. Would stay there again!

  • 5 of 5

We really hate to have to tell you how great our stay was. There's nothing more we'd like to do than to keep this our little secret. We have NEVER been treated as specially as we were on this vacation. Jen and Joe are without a doubt the most honest and friendly people we have ever rented from. Their hospitality and absolute joy for making our stay as comfortable and enjoying was too much to believe. They thought of everything you could need on a beach vacation. We are looking forward to staying with them again next year. The house is unbelievable. Just a beautiful beach house. We felt like we were home from the minute we arrived. What a great find! We've stayed on the island every year for the past seven. We aren't looking for any other place next year. We're staying here!

Great Escape on Anna Marie

  • 4 of 5

A great vacation home away from home. Loved private pool and access to beach across the street. The elevator was a big plus for getting heavy suitcases and groceries from car to proper location inside home. Fully furnished, and a lovely way to relax and enjoy downtime. Jen and Joe were very accommodating; highly recommend.

Excellent location , beautiful home, helpful owners....

  • 5 of 5

Our group had a wonderful time in Jen and Joe's lovely home Jan. 21 through 28, 2017. The home is beautiful. elevator was a great addition. All beds were comfortable, Jen started us out with all basics and we replaced them. We walked to the beach right across the street. The home is as advertised. We will return.
