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.

Accurate Description

  • 5 of 5

Stella Marina was exactly as described by the owner. The pictures do not do it justice, it is immaculate inside with a perfect beach/gulf feeling. Nick was friendly and informative, he made us feel as if we were staying with an old friend! We will book Stella Marina again, there is no reason we would look elsewhere! Thank you for making us feel at home Nick!

Fabulous accommodations at Stella Marina!

  • 5 of 5

My stay at Stella Marina couldn't have been nicer! The beach house was clean and comfortable with everything one would need from beautiful remodeled bathrooms and showers to comfy bedding and towels. Stella Marina is in a perfect location...just a short walk to one of the most beautiful beaches on the Florida Gulf coast and dozens of great places to eat within walking distance or a short drive. Stella Marina's owner, Nick Bolli is a gracious host who goes out of his way to make sure that your stay at Stella Marina will be a memorable one! Rest, relaxation and old Florida at it's best!!

We had a wonderful, much needed, vacation. Nick was a fantastic host, very easy to get along with and a plethora of information! The house was as expected, very clean, seems to have been renovated recently which was nice! We will definitely look into Stella Marina when we book our next trip!Oh, by the way, the beach is about 30-60 sec walk from the house. And it's very quiet!

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.

I understand how important that is, especially after a long journey to get here, it sure adds to your content finding the rental unit pleasing to you...

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.
