Area Information
What makes our Bradenton Beach/Anna Maria Island rental home special? The photos below do that for the most part, but don't do it justice. The views of the Gulf from the master bedroom and bath are just amazing. The serene blue-green Gulf waters...the brilliant orange and blue sunsets...the smell and sound of the surf...will lower your blood pressure and make you feel good to be alive!

My husband and I love the beach - Negril, Jamaica, and Ocean City, New Jersey are our favorites. When we retired last year, we looked for a place that had the best of both beaches - we found it in Bradenton Beach, Florida. It is safer than Negril, and less crowded and less commercial than Ocean City. My husband says it reminds him of the Jersey shore in the early 60's.
The beach is 170 steps from our door (my gait!), and is never crowded, not even during the peak winter season. It almost feels like it's our own private beach.

There is plenty to do here. The restaurants are great. Everything on the Island is accessible via the free open-air trolley that runs by our house every twenty minutes.

There are fishing piers and marinas for those who like to fish. They say Anna Maria Island has the best fishing on the West Coast of Florida.

Like to shop? World-famous St. Armand's Circle and Sarasota are minutes away. Prime Outlet (130 designer and brand-name outlet stores) is nearby, but not too close to threaten your vacation budget!

Have kids, or just want to act like one? Busch Gardens in Tampa is about an hour away, and Disney World 2 hours.

Thank you for a lovely stay at Bradenton Beach!! The home was clean, nicely furnished and decorated. The kitchen is well stocked with everything you need. The house comes with beach chairs, floats and wagon to haul things to the beach....which is very short walk! Love the town and the many local places to eat and shop. Would most certainly come back!!

This property is located at 2203 Avenue C, Bradenton Beach, FL, 34217, United States (336569) - you should look at it on Googe Maps' Street View - you can virtually actually walk to the beach to see how close it is!

This property was perfect for our family of 8, including 2 young children. The home was clean and well maintained. There were four decks which provided social respite. The owners were very helpful and sociable. The gulf view from the upper deck and the sunsets were awesome. The beach is only a short block away. I would definitely recommend this property to friends and relatives.

We had a full house and an amazing time! Joe and Jen's attention to detail was great. They were glad to give us suggestions for local places to visit and restaurants to eat. This is the best bang for the buck we've seen so far. You can take the trolley all over the island and it's a short walk to the beach. Treat their home as you would your own and they'll bend over backwards for you. Thanks Joe & Jen!!

This property was very clean and well-maintained. The beach was beautiful and right across the road. Location was perfect and restaurants were close by that you could walk if you choose. The view from the master bedroom was unbelievable. Would recommend this property to anyone that would like to visit Bradenton Beach.

I was looking for an ideal vacation and found it. The home was magnificent. From the spacious master bedroom with its marble bathroom, over-sized tub and separate shower, to the large living room, four balconies (one for each bedroom) and fabulous kitchen, there was no detail overlooked. The home was extremely well furnished and decorated. The beds were very comfortable. The kitchen appliances were top quality, as was pretty much everything. And the hosts were the best part of the trip. Joe and Jen are the most warm and welcoming hosts you could want. They live in the adjoining unit and Joe made it known on welcoming us that he was available at all times. If we needed anything, knock on his door any time, day or night. And to make sure, he checked in on us periodically to make sure all was well. This was the best vacation spot i have had the good fortune to find. My only complaint is that I could not stay longer.

My husband and I just returned from a week's stay at Jen and Joe's lovely vacation home on Bradenton Beach, Florida. The house was exactly as advertised, beautifully decorated, well-maintained, well-stocked, and perfectly located. The master bedroom is awesome, especially the divinely comfortable king size bed and balcony off from the bedroom. The master bath has a very nice jetted garden tub and good-sized tiled shower. We have stayed at numerous vacation homes, and this is by far one of the best. Jen and Joe are perfect hosts and very helpful. They answered every one of our questions before our trip, and made it clear to contact them if we had any problems during our stay. They are proud of their home, and rightly so. We will definitely be coming back. We stayed during the cold snap that hit the nation, including Florida. Despite unusually cold weather for this area, we found every day to still be perfectly fine to go out on the beautiful beaches and fishing piers in the area. We didn't come to shop, but found delightful shops on the island, particularly at St. Armands Circle, and in Sarasota and Venice. We ended up buying another suitcase to bring back the things we purchased! We have fallen in love with this little bit of paradise. There isn't a better place to experience it than in Jen and Joe's lovely vacation home, which is located right across the road from a lovely white, sandy beach.

We experienced a terrific family vacation at this lovely vacation home by the gulf. The listing is very accurate and we couldn't have been more pleased with the owner's ability to make us feel right at home. We were appreciative of the thoughtful amenities including all the fun beach gear available to us. Loved the restaurants and shopping nearby, as well as nightly visits to the beach to view the gorgeous sunsets. We have already recommended this property to neighbors and friends!

This is a first class property, clean and very well maintained. Just a block from the beach, and close enough to shopping for anything you want. The hosts couldn't be more helpful and welcoming. The master bedroom is wonderful, with porch and ocean view. There are at least three great outdoor seafood dining places nearby (and they also accept dogs), one just a mile south, one just across the Cortez bridge, and another 1/2 mile further at the foot of 19th st. in Cortez. This is definitely a place we would return to.

This beautiful home is just a 2 minute walk from a wonderful beach. We arrived in the area early Saturday afternoon and received a phone call from the owner letting us know we could come on over anytime as the place was ready for us. That was appreciated as we'd had a long drive. The owner, who lives right next door met us and gave us a thorough tour of the home. Joe and Jen were very pleasant and helpful people to work with throughout the process. The home is incredible. Luxurious throughout and very nicely decorated. Everything worked perfectly and the property was very clean. Joe and Jen do expect visitors to take good care of it and that is made very clear upon your arrival. Obviously they have a real gem here and are very proud of it - as they should be. With just the two of us, the home was obviously far more than we needed, but their pricing for this wonderful home in this great location was so good that it was an easy choice for us. This home would be perfect for a large family. They even provide a good assortment of beach toys and floats for the kids to play with. The beach near the home usually has very calm, clear, relaxing waters and a very gradual descent to the deeper water. Very safe for the kids and incredible for adults who just want to relax instead of fighting the waves. We definitely recommend this property if you are considering a Gulf Coast vacation.

From the moment that we arrived at this property, we knew that this was a fantastic choice! One short block from the sea, three minutes walk - even carrying beach chairs and supplies! The view from the Master bedroom is wonderful, you will never want to leave. The beautiful turquoise sea and white sand was there to greet us every morning.

The property is very clean and well maintained, every amenity provided and a few that you wouldn't expect to find in a rental, everything has been carefully thought of to improve the vacation.

The owners are delightful, willing to share their knowledge of the local area and recommend delicious eateries.There are many wonderful restaurants on the island and locally on the mainland, so many that you can't visit them all.

We had a small problem with one of the bedroom blinds during our stay, it was dealt with immediately by Jen and Joe - no waiting around - that's what you call service!! Thank you.

We would certainly not hesitate to recommend this property to anyone, but we won't be telling too many people, we want to be able to return ourselves!

Recently spending a week on Anna Maire Island, we were so happy to have found this property on Bradenton Beach. We certainly felt this rental was reasonably priced and a cut above other rentals on the island. We brought our family to Anna Marie to attend a wedding. This multi level home was clean, spacious, well stocked and very accommodating. It had all the amenities of home. One day we went to the local fish market and grilled fresh fish and shrimp on the grill that evening. Absolutely wonderful. The beach was a casual 1 block walk. Our grandson loved the sand toys Joe and Jen provided. They also had beach chairs and an umbrella. The weather was perfect. When we arrived, Joe and Jen met us at the door, explained the logistics of everything available on the island, from groceries, restaurants, entertainment, sites to see, etc. They wanted to make sure we enjoyed ourselves on the island. I personally enjoyed sitting on the veranda for morning coffee while enjoying the beach within view. The Sand Bar Restaurant is a must, although very busy. If the opportunity arises, we would certainly come back to rent this property, maybe longer next time. Thank you.

We had a wonderful family vacation at Jen and Joe's rental! They were so accommodating and helpful. The house is very, very clean! We really appreciate that. The beach across the street is gorgeous! We found lots of beautiful shells. The house is huge and has everything you could possibly need to enjoy an amazing week at the beach!! The trolley that goes by every 20 min. is awesome. You can hop on, ride to Publix (or anywhere else on the island), and hop back on for a ride home! We had such a great week. We didn't want to leave!!

Our family spent the 4th of July week at this wonderful home. Joe and Jen were so accommodating and willing to do anything to make our stay a pleasant one. The home is beautiful and only a short block from the water. The private beach was seldom crowded. The home is convenient to everything. The trolley picks up a block up the road and is free. We enjoyed using it. We got to enjoy the parade on the 4th and Joe and Jen were there to share it with us helping us snag candy and beads. It was so much fun. Anna Maria Island is a very clean place. It has nice small family runned restaurants with other larger well known ones nearby. The home was immaculate and so roomy. There was plenty of room for 8 people. The balconies on each floor were nice to sit and enjoy the evening breezes. Our family will be back and we highly recommend it to anyone looking for a very nice place to stay.

A wonderful home in a perfect place. Booking this property was very easy and we were made very welcome by the owners on arrival. Security deposit was returned very quickly after stay had ended. The house itself is beautiful and has everything you will need for your vacation including beach chairs etc. The layout is really nice and it has a great veranda to sit and have an evening drink or a quiet breakfast. Overall, very happy with our stay - we were a party of 6 made up of all ages. Anna Maria was wonderful and definitely worth a visit if you fancy a few days away from the busy parks in Orlando. Many thanks for sharing your home, Lisa

We stayed in this house for a week at the beginning of April. Everything is top notch. When they say "just bring your toothbrush", they mean it. There's really nothing missing. The house looks better than in pictures. The owners greeted us, showed us the place and helped with information we needed ( food store location, nearby restaurants). They are really nice people, we enjoyed meeting them and hope to see them again. All I can say is that we had a great time here and hope to come back again soon.

We live in Cambridge, Ontario and have found a wonderful rental property in Bradenton Beach. The property is exactly as it appears in the photos. It is very clean and well-maintained. It is one block from the beach and the sunsets from the Master Bedroom are beautiful. During our visit we frequented many of the local restaurants some of which are; The Beachouse, Lobstahs, Bridge Tender Inn, Bridge Street Bistro and the Wayside. We also went to Disney and the Mote Aquarium in Sarasota. I would highly recommend this property to all of my friends or relatives. We loved it so much we will re-book for next year.

This beautiful 'plantation style' beach house more than lived up to its description. High end appliances, upscale furniture and well appointed with everything you need to make for a memorable vacation. The pictures of the beautiful sunsets from the large balcony off the master bedroom do not do this property justice. A community similar to Key West - great restaurants - but we hated to leave our 'beach house' so stayed in and barbequed a couple of nights. Access to the beach was a 2 minute walk - great swimming! Anna Marie Island is a hidden gem.

This rental beach house is truly a cut above the rest!! The pictures are truly accurate, showing the home very well! Nothing was substandard. We truly enjoyed getting to know the owner and they were wonderful in giving us tips about the beach, restaurants, fishing etc! The advertisement said all you need to bring is your swimsuit & tooth brush....how accurate that is. Everything is there. We are very excited to come back and will be telling our friends about our stay. This is truly a 5 star home! I am so glad I came across it.

This is a fabulous home away from home. Jen and Joe made sure we had all the comforts we needed to enjoy our vacation. My family loves to cook and we really enjoyed our time gathered in the gourmet kitchen during breakfast and dinner. Our days were spent at the white sand beaches less than a block away. The children loved the toys and floaties that Jen and Joe provide, while the adults enjoyed lounging in the beach chairs soaking up the sun. My personal favorite part of each day was sitting on the third story balcony with my husband and watching the stars, enjoying a cocktail and his company. Jen and Joe, thank you for allowing us to enjoy your little piece of paradise. Your home really is more beautiful than the pictures show.

We recently stayed in this wonderful property for three weeks and, once again, enjoyed every single moment. The listing description is accurate, although at times, understated. To fully appreciate this island home you need to visit! The photographs give a true insight into the luxury appointments and attention to detail provided by the owners. Upon arrival the property was spotlessly clean and with necessities provided for your use. Jen and Joe are wonderful hosts and are always attentive and available whenever required. They can offer a real insight into Island life and give many personal recommendations. We would definitely encourage anyone to vacation in this property, it will live up to your expectations and will not disappoint! We will be back!

Jen and Joe have a beautiful house. There house is approximately 1/2 block to the beach!!! The location was minutes from many great restaurants ie The Rod and Reel for dinner and Minnies for breakfast. (Jen and Joes recommendations!!) The price to rent this home was far cheaper and with many more ammenities than anything available at Bradenton Beach/ Anna Marie. Thanks again from the all the Luncan clan for a wonderful summer vacation and many great memories.

I stayed in several places over the years, but this was by far the best. The house is beautiful, has everything you need, and is quite comfortable for a large group of people (we were 6). The owners are great, extremely helpful, but not intrusive. All the things in the house are first rate, the mattresses are better than those we have at home. We all loved it, and had an amazing time, even when tropical storm Debbie was providing less than perfect weather. Also, the price is great for this type of house, probably the cheaper house to rent in Anna Maria if you compare with similar rentals. We plan to continue renting it, if it is available. Highly recommended, you will not regret it!

Beautiful Beach Getaway

This beach house was the perfect place for our annual 8 person Memorial Day vacation! Not only was the home gorgeous and spacious, but it was impeccably cleaned and hosted by a very friendly and accommodating couple. We loved the amount of seating areas and the number of bedrooms so we could all be together but also have individual space. Also, the home was very close to the beach and the walk was easily managed. Overall, we had an excellent vacation, with beautiful surroundings, in a great location for an even better price! Definitely would recommend!

Our family had a lovely vacation here. The home is gorgeous, clean, and well appointed and lovingly maintained. I loved that you could hear and see the Gulf from the balconies. There are coconut trees in front of the property and a huge mango tree out back. It felt like a wonderful slice of tropical Florida living. There are lots of various pool toys available, outdoor showers to clean off before coming in, and the easily accessed private beach was just perfect for us. We would love to stay here again!

The house is spacious - plenty of private space, as well as space for everybody to get together. It is in very good condition. We cooked a lot - the kitchen had everything we needed. The beach is very close and pretty decent. Restaurants and night life short walk away. We had a great time. Thanks!

I would like to start out by thanking Joe and Jen for providing us the opportunity to rent such a beautiful island home in a fantastic location. The photos do not do it justice. Home is immaculate with great, comfy furnishings. Everything is provided to make your stay hassle free, including anything you will need for the beach. Speaking of the Gulf, you are within steps (one short block) from the fine white sand beaches and clear warm waters. A great vacation was had by all.

My husband and I have enjoyed 3 winters at this property. The listing descriptions are accurate and the photos are also. The property was clean and ready for us upon arrival. It is maintained well. The owners are nothing less than helpful in answering any questions or concerns you may have and if somethng is missing or broken they take care of it immediately. We would highly recommend this property to a friend or relative. People that have visited us while we are there have always remarked how lovely it is and that you can see the Gulf and sunsets every evening. We would recommend the restaurants in the area as we have eaten at most of them. There are gyms on the island for those desiring to keep fit, bicycle paths, and walking on the beach. Sarasota is about 20 minutes away and offers theatre, museums and shopping for those not quite beach days. The outlets are about 30 minutes away and you can shop until you drop there. The island also has a Trolley which operates every day and is free. So you can leave your car in the covered garage and walk or take the Trolley. To us it is paradise and has been for 3 years and hopefully many more.

Our family arrived at the property on December 31st late. We had made arrrangements with the owners as far as getting into the home. Everything was as they told me when I spoke to Joe on the phone. The owners are very helpful and live next door so if we would have needed anything, they told us to give them a call. Our family consisted of my husband, our daughter, her husband & 8 month old granddaughter, our son & his wife and our youngest son, his wife & their 6 month old son. We had a great time and loved the beach area! It was perfect weather on January 1 to spend on the beach! The sunsets were gorgeous from the balcony off the master bedroom! We took the trolly several times to various locations on Anna Maria Island. We went to several restaurants and tried several new foods we had not eaten before. We had a great experience and would highly recommend this home to anyone. Thanks for a wonderful week!

We spent 10 days in this very beautiful house. Jen and Joe were great hosts. When we had a problem with the WiFi Joe was there in an instant and fixed it. The housenis situated ideally and it indeed is only a small block to the Gulf. Better still, you can se it and enjoy the sunsets from the upstairs patio. Those patios are furnished very nice as well. We really did not want to leave. The island was as beautiful as we hoped. Beaches, restaurants shops - we loved it.

Owner response:This was a lovely couple who came all the way from Germany to enjoy our pristine beach!

My wife and I almost hate to give out this great location but we had the best stay thus far on AMI. We travel monthly for business to Florida and stayed at Joe's unit for about a month. During our stay Joe and his wife went above and beyond to make sure our stay was comfortable. The unit is extremely clean, modernly updated with flat screens and lovely furnitutre. And for the techy coupled like us very accommodating and fast Internet. Being right across from the beach is a plus and what a view you have from the master balcony on a sunny Sarurday morning drinking coffee of the ocean. The flor plan is very spacious, we felt just like we were at home. I can't stress enough how great the owners are which makes a bug difference to us when we rent. We highly recommend and Joe will make sure not I disappoint. Thanks for a great stay and we look forward to another stay soon! Best regards, The Uliarri's

Our family of 4 - Mom, Dad and 2 kids under 10 - had a wonderful time at this beautiful beach home in August 2011. The home is spotless, decorated beautifully and has a fully equipped kitchen with every amenity needed. The views of the beach and Gulf were breathtaking from the home's master suite. Plenty of beach chairs, beach toys, beach cart and umbrella all neatly stacked in the spacious garage -.and ready for use- no need to bring anything to this home but your swimsuit!! The owner's were on site and very helpful to ensure all of our needs were met and to help out with questions we had about this beautiful island. I can only say the the home is more stunning in person than in the photo's - you will not be disappointed!!!

We truely enjoyed our stay in this home and to Anna Maria Island. The beach was very accessible & filled with other families. Restaurants in the area are good, and a trip to Busch Gardens only took 1 hour. Good location for R&R and a little amusement park fun!

First of all let me say that the pictures online do not do this place justice. The home is absolutely beautiful inside and out, but at the same time feels like a home away from home. Our group was two families with small children (8,6, and 18 months). I believe that this was one of the best vacations that we have ever taken. Everyone really enjoyed themselves and was not wanting to leave on the day of check out. Anna Maria Island itself is a beautiful destination, and staying here at this house made the stay even better. The house is 2 minutes from the beach, which compared to our normal vacation destinations is not crowded at all. The owners' who live next door are very warm and hospitable. It was great getting to know Jennifer and hate that we weren't able to meet Joe as he had to be away unexpectedly. I can only hope that we are able to do this again in the future and stay at the same place. Definitely worth it!

This house does not look like a "rental". It looks like what it was built as, someone's dream house. Clean, roomy, comfortable, very well equipped kitchen, with everything you need for the beach including an umbrella, chairs, toys things to float on, and a cooler. Short stroll to lovely, quiet beach. Near great restaurants and short drive to Sarasota, St. Armands Circle, and an outlet mall. Best of all, the very helpful owners live right next door. Jen and Joe are there to answer any questions you may have and make you feel at home, only better. We will definately be back.

By Raymond Varner (White, Georgia) This was our first trip to Anna Maria Island for a winter away from home. This was our first stay at this vacation home and found it to be the best experience we have had in many years. Our group consisted of four senior citizens. We had outstanding accommodations, much better than you would find at any of the Hilton Motels/Hotels. We were very close to the beach with two warm and friendly hosts who gave us tips on where to go and where to eat. Vacations at a place like this with the hosts we had are one of a kind. We strongly recommend you try it. We will recommend it to our friends and family and on our next vacation you can be sure we will visit this place again.

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay this past November. Great gulf views from the top balcony especially. Convenient and spacious parking at the back. High-end interior (kitchen, bathrooms, showers, furniture, you name it). Just a skip and a hop to a great beach and wonderful sunsets. Saw flying fish and dolphins playing a short distance from the shore. The owners, who live next door, are very friendly, helpful and accomodating. We highly recommend. The Shediac couple.

Loved this place. Everything is first class. The kitchen is a chef's dream come true (not that I cook much!). The master suite is spacious and has a beautiful view of the gulf with a lovely porch that's perfect to read, have a glass of wine, and watch a beautiful sunset if you don't feel like going down to the beach. It has great marble bathrooms (3) and believe me, if you want a nice relaxing bath, the master bathroom has a spa tub where you can soak all your troubles away. There is also a porch off the living room that was very comfortable. It is very nicely furnished and very well maintained. All in all, a perfect 10. It is also in a very good location, close to everything, yet far enough away to be quiet. Highly recommended. Also, Joe and Jenn are very good and helpful owners. I miss them and their lovely home on Bradenton Beach and hope to get back in 2011.

We stayed at this lovely home for two weeks in July. It is more beautiful than the photos show. The area is quiet and beautiful. Joe and Jen are wonderful landlords and we enjoyed evey minute we spent there. The condo includes anything you could possibly need except your food items. It is so close to all the shopping and restaurants you could possibly visit. The beach is clean and the ocean refreshing. I can only say that this would be the perfect place and worth more than Joe and Jen ask for rent. Oh, one more thing, you don't really need a car as the trolley is free and takes you all over the island.

We stayed for two weeks in July with another couple. We had not been to this area of Florida previously. The owners were very helpful in recommending places to visit and restaurants to try. The house is equipped with everything in first class condition. The views from the upstairs balcony were incredible especially the sunrises and sunsets. There was plenty of room to have together time and alone time. The beaches were clean and not real crowded. The house was furnished with top quality furnishes that I would not have expected in this price range. It is obvious that the owners take great pride in offering a five star experience at a three star price tag. We would definitely rent this house again for future trips to the area! The description and photos were accurate.

WHO WE ARE: Family of four - kids are 8 & 5 years old. The home is just steps from white sandy, unspoiled beach (never crowded). The house is in pristine condition, looked brand new. High end appliances - a cook's kitchen (wife was thrilled) that was fully stocked (yes, they had every possible kitchen gadget), yet close to good restaurants (Sarasota). Open concept living/dining/kitchen room has high ceilings - so always cool with/without A/C turned on. There are two dining rooms - one indoor, and my favorite - sitting outside at 7am checking my e-mails in the outdoor dining room. At night, the balcony off the master bedroom looks out over the beautiful Gulf of Mexico. We thought we were in heaven! The location is close to high end (St. Armand's Circle) and low end (outlet mall, Walmart) shopping - perfect for both the missus and me. We spent two wonderful weeks in this house. The island is not anywhere as touristy as other Florida areas, but convenient and close to everything. We went in late June, and the weather, though hot with the occasional afternoon shower, cooperated. This was one of the first vacations we have had where after several weeks, we still didn't miss our own home! There was no whining from the kids - they had fun, all until we had to leave! We've already booked our next vacation for 2011 - this time for FOUR weeks.

We have been going to Anna Maria Island for summer getaways for 10 years. This is the first time we stayed at this Beach Home and found it to be the best experience of any of the prior places we stayed at. This year our group consisted of 2 adults and 4 teenagers and we had plenty of room to spread out and not get into each others way. This place definitely ranks at the top of my list!

We have been coming from England and staying on Anna Maria Island and the surrounding area for many years, but this property is the best. It feels like a home but is appointed like a palace. Everything you could wish for is here; spacious living areas, a few steps to the sandy beach and glorious views. Oh, and I should mention, two warm and friendly hosts who are delightful. We can't wait to return next year and experience the sunset from the balcony adjoining the master bedroom and the peaceful beach just steps from the front door once more.

The home is really and very well maintained. The owners have taken a lot of trouble to keep the place absolutely clean. The kitchen has all the appliances and one can cook a full meal from scratch! We really enjoyed our stay at this place, especially the beach (a 2 minute walk!)which was exceptionally clean and quiet(feels like a private beach with the whitest sand!). We would definitely go back to this place and also recommend it to our friends and family.

My husband and I were fortunate enough to spend the month of March at this lovely beach home. Listing descriptions were accurate regarding location and amenities. The property was clean and well-maintained. The owners were very helpful answering any questions we had and giving information about the surrounding area. We had a good amount of company during our stay and everyone loved the home. There are quite a number of restaurants within walking distance and the grocery store is just a hop and a skip away. The beach was great and never crowded. We liked the open concept living and dining room. The bedrooms were relaxing and spacious once you tired of looking at the Gulf and the fabulous sunsets. We would highly recommend this property.

We came from England and stayed here for our honeymoon in May, and we were absolutely delighted! The property is spacious, modern, clean and beautifully appointed. The balcony adjoining the luxurious master bedroom is a wonderful place to sit and enjoy the sunsets. The gorgeous white sandy beaches of Anna Maria Island are just a few yards from the front door. There are several nice restaurants within easy reach by car or via the free trolley bus. Joe and Jen made us feel very welcome and really took care to ensure that we enjoyed our stay. We had a really relaxing time and didn't want to leave. We hope to return in the very near future, and will certainly recommend this property to our friends.
