About Tim Hazelhurst

We are retired after a lifetime running a B2B marketing Agency

We live in Cheshire whilst our daughters and Grandchildren all live in London

We have owned our Condo, 151 since 1986; our cottage in Harlech since 1975 and Villa Moroco on the Cote D’Azur, since 2004

Tennis, Table Tennis, Grandchildren, Friends and good food and wine fill our time now

Tim Hazelhurst purchased this condo in 1980

Why Tim Hazelhurst chose Bradenton Beach

Anna Maria island just has the best beaches in the world, one of them 50 yards from our condo. It’s always hot and life is just so relaxing there. The restaurants are great value and I play a lot of tennis. What more can I say!

What makes this condo unique

We live near Manchester airport and Delta via Atlanta takes us to our doorstep. Being able to hop on to the beach is fantastic. We had Christmas 2009 there with our daughter who was then living in New Zealand. Christmas Day was starter course on the beach with Champagne, then back to the condo for Turkey. Simply brilliant!

Guestbook comments from the owner

The apartment was wonderfully clean and equipped with everything we needed, including beach noodles, lilo's etc. The pool and tennis court proved a slight distraction from the white sandy beach just across the road where the sunsets were out of this world. The odd bit off fishing off the jetty whilst watching the dolphin and bird life rounded off the amenities on this site. The free trolley bus just outside the main entrance provided us with the opportunity to visit restaurants all over the island and we could both have a glass or two of wine with our meal. We cannot recommend this apartment and the area too highly. Ian and Kathy Baker - Crewe

We had everything we can possibly need.Kids loved it very much only one thing that I did not expect and that is the transaction fee but it was alright because other properties charge more as management fee.Thank you very much Tim and Terrie for all your hard work to keep the place very much affordable in comparison with others.

The beach is 50 yards away. Private beach access is directly opposite Runaway Bay - you do not need to use your car or worry about parking! The beaches here are world-renowned. There is always some activity - beach volley ball, weddings, walking, cycling or jogging. The sand is white, pure and cool in the heat


Airports: Tampa is 60 min drive. Sarasota is 25 min. Orlando is 120 mins. All airports are served by most UK airports. Car hire is recommended but not essential as there is a free trolley bus service running the length of the island.


30 mins to Sarasota. St Armand’s Circle is 25 mins in a car. Orlando - Disney attractions - 2 hours by car. Bush Gardens 1 hr. Most importantly, approximately 2 mins to the wonderful, warm Gulf water!

Further Details:

We can provide information on shops, banks, restaurants, supermarkets etc., recommendations for places to eat. The condo is in walking distance of several good restaurants; Bridge St shopping area and fishing pier.

Gulf Drive Café is a must for breakfast.

A free trolley bus service runs the length of the island every 20 mins. Publix supermarket is a couple of miles on the trolley bus route.
