Overview

About the property

4-Bdrm-3 Bath-Sleeps 8 in beds-Private Heated Saltwater Pool-Private Elevator

Go to 2203avenuec.com 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 private 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 88 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.

Beautiful home in a wonderful lication

  • 5 of 5

We spent Thanksgiving here with family and it was fabulous experience. The owners Jennifer and Joe became family. Wonderful heated salt water pool for cool days.We had everything we needed. A short walk to the beach, trolley, stores. We would definitely stay here again.

Relaxing Beach Christmas

  • 5 of 5

We had eight adults and a baby stay in this beautiful condo for Christmas. There was plenty of room for all of us. The condo had a well equipped kitchen, TV's in all the bedrooms, and the elevator was a help for my parents to access the house. (Also great for luggage and groceries) There were at least ten beach chairs, Noodles, floats, towels, umbrellas and sand toys provided for our use. The beach is a short walk away. The gas grill is on a deck right off the kitchen. The kitchen table seats ten.

The condo is located close to the Cortez bridge in the Bradenton Beach area of the island. Groceries, liquor and a drug store are about a mile away. The Prime Outlet mall in Ellenton is about fourteen miles away off the Manatee bridge. St. Armand's Circle is about fourteen miles south.

Our hosts, Joe and Jen are very friendly people. They were available for assistance in the condo and information about the Island.

We would definitely recommend this condo if you want to enjoy the beach life. The main floor bedroom and bathroom was perfect for my parents who could not use stairs. The master bedroom had enough room for the couple with the baby. The porches on the front had seating to enjoy the views of palms and sunsets. The beach access was close. Everything you need for a relaxing vacation is here. Enjoy!

Beautiful home in a great location

  • 5 of 5

My family just finished a great Florida vacation and Joe and Jen have an awesome property. The house is in a great location and had plenty of space for my family to relax. There was a little issue with the pool heater but that was the only minor issue. The virtual tour of the property allowed my grandson to know where everything was before we even got there. The property is located a very short walk to the island beaches. Unfortunately the weather turned on us, that's the one thing they can't control, but we made the most of it. Thanks

Hidden Gem

  • 5 of 5

2203 is a hidden gem on Anna Maria Island. We have been staying in this property for many years and hope to continue in the future. Every detail has been thought of and the house is meticulously cleaned ready for your arrival. Jen and Joe are amazing hosts and want to ensure that you have a memorable vacation; no stone is left unturned and nothing is too much trouble. All commodities are provided - you really do just need to arrive with your beach gear!

Locally there are many restaurants and fun places to watch the sunset with a cocktail, ride the free trolley bus or just sit on the sand and relax. In the afternoon laze in your own pool, read a book and then catch a few zzzzs under a parasol. This really is paradise - but you can't take my weeks!!

Wonderful first visit

  • 5 of 5

The home is beautiful and well maintained. We really liked being one block away from the busy main street. It was quiet and very little traffic in front of the house. The pool is a nice alternative to the ocean and we had some exciting rounds of ping pong on the rainy days. The free trolley service has stops just a block from the house so it is easy to get around without getting in the car. Walking is definitely another alternative since shops and restaurants are close by. The beach is right across the street and is beautiful!

There are fishing piers and marinas for those who like to fish or want to rent a boat, jet ski or fishing equipment. They say Anna Maria Island has the best fishing on the West Coast of Florida.

For the golfers there is a par-3 on the Island and 26 challenging courses nearby.
