About mark anthony
My wife and I have traveled to many vacation destinations & love this area best. The laid back charm, the breathtaking clear emerald water, white powder sand beach is to die for. So are the sun sets and sun rises. We are so fortunate to have found this place we call 'Searenity' & think you will feel the same way. My wife and I own this rental property free of bank mortgage. This gives you peace of mind knowing your reservation is secure. No fear of loosing your vacation due to foreclosure. We are nearby for most of the year. Unlike many who rent from abroad or cross country. Try to get support if you have a problem from someone in another country or 1000 miles away can be a challenge. We are retired and customer service is critical. We have the time to pay attention to minor details that some others overlook. We have over 50 perfect 5 star reviews. This does not happen by chance. We take great pride in making sure the property is the way we would expect it to be if we were on vacation. We have stayed at many 5 star resorts and many of them did not have standards as high as ours. Most of our customers are now repeat customers. We think you will be too. Hope to see you soon! Mark & Liliana

Why mark anthony chose Bradenton Beach
Location, location, location! I can go on and on but at the end of the day we chose to buy in this location because the location has got the best of all worlds that we value most in a vacation destination. Our property is: • Near Golf (several local golf courses!) • Near Beach (50 second stroll away)! • Safe Swimming Beach • Near Disney world - FL 120 Minutes • Near Busch Gardens 60 Minutes • Near Boardwalk • Near Marina • Near Boat Launch • Near Shopping • Near Restaurants Airport Information Closest airport is Sarasota airport which is just 15-20 minutes drive. We almost always fly in to Tampa Airport, for best rate, which is a 1 hour drive.

Mark was amazing! He was on vacation in Italy but still called back immediately when I lost the check in instructions and emailed them again. Later during our stay my 5 year old managed to Lock one of the bedrooms from the inside. We were freaking out, but he answered us from Italy, probably 11 PM or later his time, and walked us through how to unlock the door. The housekeeper was so helpful and sweet. The place was gorgeous. Literally half a block from the gulf and 100 yards from a pier leading Into the bay. It was a perfect spot to sit and sip coffee whole watching the sunrise. They had tons of beach equipment, and even an outdoor shower to rinse off with before coming on. Washer and dryer onsite helped keep wet clothes clean. Plenty of cooking supplies and utensils made it super each to cook meals in. The breakfast nook was amazing!! The beds were clean and comfortable. Loved the decor and everything about it. One of the nicest, if not the nicest, places we have ever stayed. Also great loacation...only 3 blocks from Bridge St, which had a pier with boat rentals, tons of shops, breakfast places, miniature golf, tiki huts with live music and great food, and an amazing ice cream shop! There is also a 3 mile running/bike path.
Perfect stay for our little family!
My family of four really enjoyed our stay here! The owners stocked our crystal clean place with all we could have needed. The tropical courtyard was so charming!
In the heart of the Island.
We really enjoyed our stay. We were hoping for a quiet vacation spot but yet close to the beach & marinas, restaurants & fishing piers. We had it all! The house is a stand alone so very private & quiet. The central air unit kept the house cool while the water purifier made the water free of chemicals & tastes better, made the coffee great tasting.
Talk about clean this house was spotless.
We really appreciated the fresh clean home to stay in! Big roomy comfy beds, plenty of privacy & tv’s to watch different programs. The house was fully stocked, the owner thought of everything a person needed! The outside patio was so beautiful. The plants, flowers & trees make a tropical paradise. Really, like walking through a nursery. I was amazed!
We made plenty of use of the gas grill in the evening. Or a short walk to restaurants for the island cuisine.
We took a plethora of gorgeous pictures of the beach, sunsets etc. This is our 2nd stay at Bradenton Beach & by far the best place to stay! Thanks to our host for all his wonderful suggestions of fishing & restaurants!
We definitely want to come back!
Thanks for the amazing review. Appreciate all the thought you put into it! Thanks for mentioning some of our superb amenities like the purified water at all water sources including showers, faucets, etc. We used to rent on the island and couldn’t believe how much chlorine was in the water. So, we appreciate when guests taste the difference between our water and virtually any other. We look forward to having you back again!
Clean. Top notch customer service.
The owner of this property(I think his name is Mark) lives right next door and takes care of everything. Customer service was memorable in a good way. Very friendly, he even provides beach equipment at no charge (toys, beach buggie, umbrella, etc). Plus a very nice outdoor area. Location can't be beat, our first day we walked right across the street to a very beautiful beach. The best on the island with kids because there weren't a ton of people(not enough parking). Very peaceful home and beach-perfect for a nice get away.
Thanks Mark! It was an awesome spring break!
Thanks for the great review and for mentioning our most sought after location and all the extras we offer at no charge. Our #1 goal is to gain your repeat business and delighted that we have accomplished that!
Wonderful location and great host
The cottage was very well done and a comfortable place to spend a few days at the beach. Mark, the host was helpful whenever we had questions.
Thanks for your excellent review! We look forward to having you back again!
Cute little cottage, very family friendly area.
Loved our stay at Bradenton Beach. The house is small and well-appointed. Beds are comfortable, appliances work, knives are sharp, and the owner is responsive and polite. Couldn't ask for a better beach vacation!
We couldn’t ask for better guests. Thanks for the great review. Delighted that you will be coming back next year!
Location. location, location. Our most sought after area is just about 30 steps to what has recently been named to 1 of the top 10 beaches in USA. Our laid back island & culture is unlike any other. No high rises, no fast food chains, etc. are allowed here. Of course you can drive a mile off the island and find every fast food chain know to man kind if that's what you like. Where can you go and have a private dock to fish from on the Bay, and enjoy spectacular sun rises about 40 steps on one side of property & white powder beach & warm emerald water about the same distance in the other direction? This truly is paradise. Our secluded and relaxing court yard is surrounded by lush tropical garden & several palms, avocado, bamboo, banana trees for privacy and is simply wonderful & inspiring. We have a nice gas grill & private picnic area. Unlike other rentals, never any hidden fees for grill gas, biweekly trash pick up service, wi-fi, unlimited calling, digital cable, etc. So nice you may never want to leave!
Enjoy 7 1/2 miles of beautiful white sand beaches and spectacular sunsets on the Gulf of Mexico! We are perfectly situated at the south end of Anna Maria island Walk steps on one side to the white powder sand beach and turquoise water. Walk steps on the other side, on a quiet street, to our dock on Sarasota Bay. We have a BRAND NEW FISHING DOCK! Just steps to restaurants, shops, parasailing, jet-skiing, fishing and boating excursions - and convenient to area theaters, museums, parks and airports.Whether it’s a sun and fun filled day at the beach or enjoying one of the many activities Anna Maria Island has to offer, you’ll be sure to have a great day and the memories you make during your vacation will last a lifetime.
