About Nick Bolli

I am of Italian descent and lived stateside for many years. I love returning to Italy every year to visit and to be with my family and friends. Italian people are well known for their social friendliness and warm hospitality. I thrive, enjoy, and take pride being a host for all guests. I find an inner personal content when my guest tell me that they had a comfortable and memorable experience while lodging here at Stella Marina, and look forward to returning.

Why Nick Bolli chose Bradenton Beach

When I decided to renovate the West side of my duplex Stella Marina, my goal was to create a comfortable clean, and appealing home atmosphere in which guest can feel and experience a sense of their own home quality, while relaxing and enjoying the beaches here at Anna Maria Island.

What makes this apartment unique

To feel the sensation of the warm fine sand between your toes, to stare at the Gulf of Mexico horizon vivid color hues during sunset is just a short minute away.

Stella Marina provides beach chairs and chart, towels, charcoal grill, and enclosed outside shower to rinse off salt and sand. Also you have the convenience a washer and dryer for your use provided on the premises.

Parking on Anna Maria Island is at a premium and mostly private. While here at Stella Marina you will have ample free parking for 2 vehicles, one under the shade.

Relax outside the front door on a large deck where you can sit and gaze the surrounding nature and neighborhood. Bring or rent bicycles and venture the island by following designated bicycles paths. I also have one SUP for rent if interested.

Great location near a beautiful beach

  • 5 of 5

Stella Marina was a great place to stay for a week. Nick was helpful with ideas for places to eat and a place to buy fresh seafood to grill. The beach cart, chairs and umbrella and large, thick beach towels made our days at the beach even better. We hope to return to Stella Marina again!

Excellent stay at Bradenton Beach!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second visit to Bradenton Beach, and the first in this unit. Nicholas' apartment was exactly as described and shown in pictures. Cleanliness is our number one priority and we were very pleased with the apartment and everything in it. The kitchen had everything we needed. Nicholas was an excellent landlord and neighbor - responsive but always respectful of our privacy. His communication with us was outstanding, starting with our first question just before booking. We encountered no problems so we didn't require any assistance from him, but he was a quick text away when we had a question. We also appreciated the second full bathroom in the unit, especially when we had another couple with us for a week. I wouldn't hesitate to rent this unit again if the opportunity arises.

Great property, not a fan of AMI

  • 4 of 5

Stella Marina was a great property, reasonably priced, and only one convenient block from beach access. Owner kindly provides beach cart and towels and very thorough instructions. Outside shower and laundry facilities on-site are a plus. This was the first time we visited AMI, it was too busy for our taste, lots of traffic and vacationers everywhere, very commercialized. Perhaps we picked a peak time and it's quieter other seasons.

This condo is super clean, updated, comfortable, and it has anything you may need from pots & pans to beach towels & beach toys. Nick, the owner, is very informative, welcoming, and he even stopped by to say hi! The condo is located a block from the beach and in close proximity with anything you may need. The neighborhood is quiet and clean as well. Overall, it was a wonderful experience!!

Anna Maria Island is a bit of old Florida. It doesn't offer mega resorts or towering condos with crowded beaches, it does offer quiet white sandy beaches and a great family atmosphere. Come see why so many others are finding out that you don't have to compromise on a great beach vacation. Stella Marina is located a short one block walk to the beach. There are a few small condo's and private homes on the beach, so it is never crowded.

Anna Maria Island consist of three cities. The north part of the island is the City of Anna Maria, the middle of the island is the City of Holmes Beach and the southern part is the City of Bradenton Beach.

In the spring of 2014, Anna Maria Island completed a multi=million dollar beach re nourishment which doubled the width of the beaches along the gulf, so now there is even more sand to spread out on.
