Bedrooms 4
Space 2,500 sq ft
Property type villa
Minimum Stay 7 nights


About the property


This is a non-smoking property.

Seven night stays are our priority however, if there is a gap between stays - it is possible to book this property nightly. Please contact me to inquire.

We own both villas on this property, situated on and oversize island lot in a quiet residential neighborhood. Both villas can be rented together or separately. Each has a private heated, salt water pool with outdoor living space along with their own private garage.

In this listing, we will discuss Star Fish East which is situated closest to the bay with views of both the beach and bay. With 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms, it sleeps 8. The home is multi level with one bedroom located on the main living level and 2 bedrooms and the Master suite located on the upper level. This lovely, recently renovated, air conditioned villa has two spacious balconies off the front living room and the Master suite and two smaller, shared balconies off the remaining bedrooms.

We are located a stones' throw from the white sand of Coquina Beach (the southern most beach on Anna Maria Island) Coquina is a Manatee County funded and maintained beach and is a jewel of the island. Parallel with the beach is a wonderful paved and shaded walkway used for a bounty of recreation including bike riding, walking and guided Segway tours. The beach offers rest rooms, ample parking, snack bar serving three meals a day and offering entertainment, Sunday farmer's market, picnic areas and life guard assistance and supervision. The island has approximately 7 miles of beautiful beach front on this west side.

We offer you a well equipped, light and bright kitchen with granite counter tops to prepare meals and snacks. Complete with dishwasher, ice maker, electric glass top range, cookware and table service for 8.

The master suite has a very comfortable King size bed, large walk in closet and flat screen TV. French doors open to your private balcony and seating for two. The private master bath has a Jacuzzi tub, spacious walk in shower, water closet and 2 sink granite vanity.

All bedrooms have large flat screen TVs, shared balconies and shared bathroom with walk in showers.

When you arrive, you are ready to kick back and enjoy all that your vacation has in store for you. You can be as busy as you want with fishing, walking, biking, live theater, restaurants, bars, museums, shopping, para-sailing, jet-skis, etc. We ride our bikes to explore new places, restaurants and parks including Leffis Key just 1/2 mile away and Robinson's Preserve, just off the island. Mote Marine & Aquarium is on Longboat Key is a great place to see manatees, sea turtles, native Florida birds and fish. Relaxing poolside in the heated, salt water pool with a cool drink is a great way to wrap up an afternoon. Now a salt water pool is NOT like the ocean, it is like a heavily water softened pool. It is gentle to skin and eyes, has no odor and will not mess up those expensive, color treated hair doos (not that yours isn't natural...)

We offer you free nationwide telephone to keep in touch with your friends and family back home and perhaps gloat a little... We also offer free high speed internet access.

Linens, towels and cleaning supplies are stocked for you along with the many other items listed below. These villas are owner rented and not part of a rental companies inventory and we go the extra mile to make sure you are comfortable as possible..

We love repeat guests and know that personal service makes a difference.

About Donnie & Debbie Goodwin

We'll take a minute to introduce ourselves, we are Donnie and Debbie Goodwin and we are the owner/operators of a rural campground in New Hampshire called Loon Lake Campground. We have been married for 28 years and have four sons. We currently live in Lebanon NH and we are both NH natives. We love to sail, play golf, bike, hike, walk the beach, ski and spend time with our family and friends.

Donnie & Debbie Goodwin purchased this villa in 2016

Why Donnie & Debbie Goodwin chose Bradenton Beach

Our family fell in love with Anna Maria island six years ago when we vacationed here with our boys for the first time. We loved the old time Florida feel and the laid back and casual atmosphere here. The uninterrupted, expansive beach front was a huge allure for us. The people who live and work on the island are so friendly and helpful. The seafood is amazing and sunsets are magical. It's hard not to fall in love here.

What makes this villa unique

Our first purchase on the island was in 2013 when we bought a condo. We used it ourselves and rented it a bit. We found that it proved too small for our needs and the needs of our guests. We started our quest for a bigger home at the southern end of the island as we were entranced with Coquina Beach. The opportunity came to purchase the twin villas and we jumped on it. Here, you are steps from the beach and magnificent sunsets and steps from the Bay with its stunning sun rises. Bridge Street activity calls to many. It's dining establishments, pier, shops and dancing are a huge draw to this end of the island. The free trolley travels from the North to the South and operates until 11 pm at night. It offers the flexibility to be mobile without the hassle of driving or parking. We love to use our bikes to get around. There are companies on the island that rent bikes, golf carts or mopeds.

Fabulous friend vacation

  • 5 of 5

Wow!! We just got back from a fabulous vacation in Bradenton Beach with 8 adults. This house is definitely the best house I have ever rented on VRBO. Debbie was so informative from the moment we booked. The house is absolutely beautiful. Everything is there for you. We loved how comfortable it was and beautifully decorated. We spent most days lounging around the pool. I would recommend this house for sure. Thank you for letting us spend our vacation here!!!

Beautiful home Great location

  • 5 of 5

My family and I have stayed here twice now and each time have been so happy with this house. It is beautifully decorated, always very clean and it is very close to Bridge street where you can find lots of shops and restaurants! The beach is right across the street from the house, and is literally just steps away! The owners have been a pleasure to work with each time and always check in to see how everything is and if we need anything. The house is conveniently stocked with everything you need, as well as toiletries, laundry supplies and dish washing supplies are provided, which is often not something you are normally supplied with. We look forward to future stays here!!

Amazing property with every possible amenity.

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to Anna Maria island and we couldn’t have picked a better house. A short walk across the street to the ocean, the owners have stocked the house with everything you might need. The interior is immaculate and appears recently remodeled with plenty of space and comfortable furnishings. All the beach supplies you might need are there for you so all you need is sunscreen. I’d highly recommend and we’ll be back next year!

First VRBO experience and don't think it could get any better!

  • 5 of 5

For our first VRBO rental experience it was amazing! The house was very clean and had everything you could want for a week stay. All you need to bring is food, beverage and a swim suit. The pool and patio area were fabulous for a relaxing afternoon. The location was central to everywhere we went. Close to the beach - walking distance and close to a nice park area. The house provides everything you need for a day at the beach or a raining day at the house - beach wagon and cart, sand toys, towels, games, puzzles, and coloring. Great for the kids! Looking forward to going back!!

Perfect family reunion rental

  • 5 of 5

Four siblings and spouses gathered in this wonderful rental for a week-long reunion. The location could not have been better -- across the street from the Gulf, walking distance to shops and restaurants, even a free trolley stop nearby. The rental has four comfortable bedrooms with three full baths, two open air porches, a very well equipped kitchen, a small heated pool, and an elevator to carry bags to the upper floors. The building is high off the ground for storm protection purposes so be ready to climb lots of stairs. We highly recommend this to a family group that wants to spend time together.
