It is a heater for those chilly winter nights. Great place for a pina colada and to just recharge your batteries! New distressed look wood floors. This place has real character and charm!

You may not find another spot so close to the beach & bay yet so peaceful & with such ambiance. It is in a peaceful private compound about 50 second walk to both bay & beach on either side of property. Nothing soothes like the smell the salt from the sea & sound of the waves. You are almost certain to see Dolphins from our dock or beach! If you like to fish this is fishing heaven!

You will have a private, off road, parking spot.

There is an outdoor storage locker next to your entrance. In the locker is fishing gear, chairs and umbrella.

Use our gas grill. Nothing like grilling the fish you just caught!

Ride bikes to ride the long paved bike paths along the beach.

There's a paved trail across st that leads to Coquina Beach. If you go all the way to the end you can loop under bridge & find Coquina BayWalk Preserve. You can loop back to the Coquina Cafe for a cold drink & delicious Hamburger or their great grilled chicken sandwich.

This property has had a recent makeover. Entire home has porcelain floors in every room! Big screened lanai with sliding glass doors. Rate includes unlimited calling anywhere in USA and Canada, Wi-Fi, Digital cable, Plasma TV with DVD. New reclining chairs in living area (not yet shown in pictures). Everything will be like new! If you like fishing, we have a dock just about 40 steps away too. If you like going for walks, there is a marvelous paved trail across our street that goes for about a 1.5 miles or so along the beach. The trail is covered by weeping pines and palms and is simply breathtaking. Just a quick walk down the road is The Coquina Baywalk at Leffis key where you will enjoy acres of boardwalks built along the Bay. Spectacular scenery. You will enjoy a wide variety of restaurants all within walking distance including our favorites on the historic Bridge St Pier. Watch for dolphins and Manatee! Anyway, I can go on but look at the PERFECT 5 star reviews that we already have for this new property. They describe how great this property and location is. Our low intro sale rate is great too! Rates will be going up soon and we are booking fast. Act now and save.

Rate includes unlimited calling anywhere in USA and Canada, Wi-Fi, Digital cable, 3 TV's and at least one with DVD. Everything will be like new! If you like fishing, we have a new dock just about a 40 second walk away. Fishing gear included!

About Mark

My wife and I own and operate this property. We own the property free and clear of bank mortgage and have zero intention to ever sell. This means you have peace of mind knowing it will not be foreclosed on or sold after you reserve. We take great pride in offering the best vacation rentals in best location that are ALWAYS spotless clean and with reasonable rates.Over half our guests return on a repeat basis. We take this as a compliment and hope you become a regular customer too!

Why Mark chose Bradenton Beach

3 reasons, location, location, location! Close to all the the fun spots. Walk to several restaurants, fishing pier, bait shop, segway and bike rentals, mini golf, beach side cafes, boutique shopping, tiki huts, marina, boat rentals/excursions, and much more! Even though close to all the fun the home is located in a very peaceful and serene spot with big court yard. You can relax and 'recharge your battery' in our big lanai or courtyard. Listen to the sounds of birds and rustling of palms, while enjoying the beauty of the tropical plants, fruit trees. Good book and pina colada optional.

What makes this condo unique

This may be the nicest 1 bedroom vacation rental on Anna Maria Island! Our beautifully remodeled vacation rental is elevated with about 11 steps. There is no unit above this one and being and end unit means it is very quite and peaceful! Note; All homes and condos, etc., built on Anna Maria Island, since 1973, have been required by FEMA to be elevated. Most vacation rentals are at least this height or one story higher. This stunning vacation rental also has a big dining and 2nd living area has a futon and dining set. Enjoy extra large sliding one way privacy glass screened windows. Open concept stocked kitchen with all the extras like being at home. New appliances. Big breakfast bar. Garbage disposal.

Huge California King bed.

Ride bikes to tour the nearby nature preserve and miles of safe paved bike trails!

For the health conscious, we have installed a $3000 water filtration system. Unlike other vacation rentals on the island that use public water which is heavily treated with CHLORINE and other chemicals our filtration system filters all this out. So, when you bathe, cook or, drink, know that you have the purest and only chemical free water on the island! Not only is this healthier in every regard but, women will notice that their hair is fuller and skin is softer after washing as their are no chemicals to make the hair limp or to dry out skin!

Enjoyable!! Great Escape!!

  • 5 of 5

Look no further, this unit is where you need stay! Florida charm with modern amenities, clean and comfortable, well stocked kitchen, bath and beach needs! Watch Beautiful Sunsets a short walk to white sand beach across the street. (beach carts provided for cooler, chairs, etc.) Outdoor rinse station made it nice after day at the beach. Owners thought of everything you would need to make your stay pleasant. Gas grills to use in a tropical courtyard with lighted palm trees. Went fishing from the dock, saw dolphins in the bay. Went parasailing, saw a stingray from above. Bridge Street is within walking distance for quaint shops and restaurants. Thank you for a great escape!

A week is not enough

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I recently returned from a wonderful stay on Anna Maria Island. Mark and Liliana clearly have created a beautiful, peaceful getaway for anyone looking to escape and simply kick back and relax. Our vacation started the moment we stepped into the courtyard and were welcomed by all the quaint seating areas, tropical environment & lovely flowers. Once inside our charming, 1 bedroom condo unit, it became very apparent that the owners had thought of everything needed. The fully equipped, updated kitchen was perfect for cooking, and greatly appreciated. Bed, sitting area, dining nook all very comfortable. The unit also came with all the amenities needed to enjoy a day at the beach, cart included. Super convenient location to walk to the beach (across the street) and local restaurants. Looking forward to our return in 2019.

Anna Maria Island get away

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at this property was very comfortable, relaxed, safe with easy access to gulf beach, bay, restaurants and shopping. Our condo was perfect. We loved the location and felt right at home. Very clean and well appointed. The owner was also very informative, responsive and very easy to work with. Loved our walks on the beach and the walking/bike path. Loved Anna Maria Island and look forward to returning to this property.

This place was fantastic! Clean, updated, and fully stocked for whatever you need. We were 100% comfortable and the location is really convenient. Mark worked with me when we had to delay our stay due to Hurricane Irma without any problems and we sooooo appreciated his flexibility. Perfect place for 2 to go relax and unwind for a few days. Book it!

What is there to do?

Anna Maria Holmes Beach Bradenton Beach and Beyond

A few examples of AREA ATTRACTIONS

While Anna Maria Island is known for laid back living and relaxation, should you wish to participate in the local scene there's an abundance of activities. If you enjoy biking, Bradenton Beach has a designated bike trail along Gulf Drive. Old Bridge Street has Putt Putt Golf and while you play, there is a misting system so you can stay cool. At the end of Old Bridge Street is a pier for your fishing pleasure as well as a restaurant. There are a variety of restaurants on Old Bridge St making it possible to satisfy every appetite.

Whether it's pizza or French crepes to fish tacos, you can find a meal to satisfy. There are also shops and the US Post office is located here so you can mail post cards to your friends back home.

Naturally you can swim in the crystal clear emerald waters of the Gulf of Mexico. Snorkeling is also fun or surfboarding, parasailing or kayaking. Several local business will rent you all the necessary equipment. Naturally there are golfing and tennis too.

There's really a wide range of things to do here, if you want to have an action packed time you will find plenty. Of course you can always stroll along the shore collecting shells and then watch an incredible sunset with your favorite beverage. Kids would enjoy a visit to Bradenton to see Snooty the manatee. The area of Manatee/Sarasota counties also has great off shore fishing, jet skiing, kayaking, golfing, tennis, shopping, museums, and art galleries to explore.

Be sure to observe all the turtle watch rules as the Ridley turtles are building nests from early May and baby turtles are hatching on our beaches. You might even go on a turtle watch tour with our local turtle lady. Look in the paper for her schedule.

The entire island of Anna Maria has many reasonably priced awarding winning restaurants.The Sign of the Mermaid Restaurant has not only delicious food as in breakfast, lunch, and dinner, but the owner is a triple time National Pie contest winner. Be sure and stop by.

Of course, check out the local newspaper for the latest events about the island. The A.M.I. SUN is just one. It's free and had lots of information you can use on current happenings.

Holmes Beach is famous for the Beach Cafe, Skinny's a small local hamburger, hotdog storefront plus along Gulf Drive you will locate the island grocery store, Publix and several island strip centers with your last minute beach items such as snacks, lotions, toys and beach towels.


Mote Science Lab is just a short drive off the island and on to Longboat Key just a few miles to the south. Both you and your kids will enjoy a visit to this 'hands on' science stop. This is where many of the rescued injured animals, occasional birds, turtles, etc are taken to recuperate and then are returned to nature.

ESPECIALLY for kids:

G WIZ is located in Sarasota near the VanWizzel a block off of Tamiami. This is a state of the art Science hands on museum. Well worth the visit. Check it out on line to see what they are featuring. Call for cost.

Day trips:

Disneyworld, Epcot Center, the Everglades, visit close by Sarasota with the Ringling Museum, Saint Armand's, and Selby Gardens.
