Description of the Bradenton Beach vacation cottage rental
For quote email me directly at no1intheworld@outlookdotcom DO NOT SEND MESSAGE THRU THIS SITE AS I WILL NOT RECEIVE AND WILL NOT REPLY. Would you kindly advise listing number and number in your party.

This cottage is in a very peaceful setting with huge brick courtyard. This is not like most properties on the island built on stilts or part a multi unit complex. It is not like most other vacation rentals that require you to climb 1-3 stories. This is a ground level stand alone home!

We have just invested in a total makeover. I.e., New kitchen, granite counters. New Whirlpool dishwasher. New stainless sink, New Kenmore smooth top stove/oven, refrig/freezer. Virtually every other kitchen tool, like home, making Kitchen fully stocked.

Granite top and porcelain tile in entire bathroom walls and floor. Soaking tub

Entire home has tile floors in every room including lanai! .

BRAND NEW $10,000 UPGRADE. Screened lanai with sliding glass doors for those chilly nights and/or rainy days and nights.

Rate includes unlimited calling anywhere in USA and Canada, Wi-Fi, Digital cable, 46 plasma TV and flat screen in bedroom.

You will love our white powder sand beach just around steps away. Enjoy turquoise crystal clear water! Walk along the beach just a short way and stop at the great restaurants and live entertainment right on the water. If you like fishing, we have a dock just 40 steps away too.

If you like going for walks, there is a marvelous paved trail across our street that goes for about 2 miles or so along the beach. This is a great paved boardwalk to walk or bike along every day especially around sun set! The trail is covered by weeping pines and is simply breathtaking. Yes, we even include new bikes that are better than the ones in bike rentals that charge $19 plus tax/day!

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. We are also just a short walk to the biggest Beach/park on the island Coquina Beach. There is a new cafe on the beach brand new as of April 2012! Enjoy delicious food right on the beach! My favorite is the grilled chicken sandwich and fries for around $5!

Take the free trolley that picks up right at our street corner. See all the destinations on the entire island. It will take you beyond the island all the way through Long Boat Key stopping at destinations such as the Mote Aquarium. It will take you all the way in to Sarasota where you can make several day trips and still want to come back for more. Our favorite places are the Ringling Museum and Selby Botanical Gardens. And all time favorite spot is St Armands. You really don't need a rental car here and there's no need to walk anywhere unless you want to. If you have a car you will save $ on gas.

You will enjoy a wide variety of restaurants all within walking distance including our favorites on the Pier. We recently saw 3 dolphins and a Manatee while eating there!

Anyway, I can go on and on but you must see to believe.
There are two bedrooms. It will sleep 4 comfortably but with a big queen sleep sofa it will handle 5 if necessary. There's a big full bathroom. It set away privately from both bedrooms. Unlike many rentals where the bathroom is in one of the bedrooms. Unlike most rentals with just a shower, this has shower and soaking tub. Big dining Lanai. Living area. Kitchen. Unique extras include; plush mattresses for the best nights sleep so you can spend more time enjoying the day! large closets including hand painted cedar closet in one bedroom. Large closet in master bedroom stocked with beach chairs and umbrella.

We provide everything including beach towels. You need only bring your tooth brushes and flip flops. All windows including Lanai have new Tommy Bahama white blinds. Lanai has new comfortable dining set. Outside is your private storage closet with beach chairs, umbrella, and fishing poles.

My wife does all the interior decorating and she really has a flare for making everything look so bright and beachy.

The furniture in this home is top of the line Tommy Bahama, Pier1, and other beach designer styles. Unlike other owners who rent from a thousand miles away, and are at risk of bank foreclosure, we live nearby most of the year and own property free and clear of bank mortgage. Sadly, many vacation properties are at risk of bank foreclosure. Have peace of mind when you rent from us. If there's ever a problem we are nearby to resolve quickly.

A gem of a home

Hi Mark & Liliana. I want to thank you for allowing us to stay in your rental home. It was perfect for Wayne and I. We loved the decorating of your home and felt so at home there. The courtyard is beautiful with all the greenery. The location is perfect and just steps away from a beautiful white sand beach and just a short distance to shopping whether you walk or drive. The shaded walking path across the street is wonderful for biking and walking (and the squirrels were plentiful). I can't say enough about the beautiful sunsets. We've stayed at all inclusive resorts for the past number of years and your home offered us a much more enjoyable vacation. I don't want to say much more about your home because everyone will want to rent it and we won't stand a chance of getting it again. I know you have other rentals in the area and we will definitely be back to one of them. Can't wait for next year !!

You won't be disappointed!!! House is furnished well and has all the modern gadgets ( big TV, Internet, washer and dryer) Owner was great to work with and very friendly. Would definitely stay here again.

most memorable stay at Stand Alone Cottage .

To Mark & Liliana , Thankyou for facilitating such a wonderful stay at stand alone cottage at Bradenton Beach on Anna Maria Island .We stayed in this property for 10 days and enjoyed the freedom it gave us . The island is a wonderful place to explore especially on a bicycle and the free trolley .We enjoyed exeptional weather so the holiday couldn't have been more perfect . There is every thing you could need at the cottage from bikes to beach towels ( and helmets ) .The cottage was immaculate in appearance with all new kitchen appliances . The cottage shares a large leafy courtyard where you can socialize with fellow occupants , of where we made great friends .We reported a few things to Mark that needed checking out , within 24hrs the jobs were done we were very impressed. So Mark we very much appreciate owners like yourself renting out your property to holidaymakers like us , especially when it's first class service with an attentive caring landlord like yourself , it makes all the difference to a stay . Just leaves us to say thankyou for making our stay so memorable , and we hope we can return in the future . Best wishes Ron & Jane

exceptional

We absolutely loved this little cottage! The owners have done an excellent job remodeling this house ... sparing no expense. I really can't say enough about the cottage and the owners. The location on the island is great (1 block from the bay to the gulf) , the large patio is a delight, the beaches are beautiful, restaurants excellent and just so much to do in the area..boating, kayaking, traveling the free trolley, eating out, dancing, and looking for dolphins. One last thing...the locals are consistently the nicest and happiest people I have ever met. Can't wait to return.

mark anthony

Owner's reply:

Thank you for your exceptional rating. I rate you an exceptional guest! Our location, 40 second walk/steps to beach on one side and steps to our dock on the bay on the other is also exceptional too!

quiet island hideaway

This cottage is in a great location on a beautiful island. It was clean and comfortable and recently renovated. The beds were comfortable, the cabinets held all the pots and pans to cook a great meal. The house is well decorated and the courtyard is beautiful arrnd shady. Mark provides two bicycles and some fishing poles. The dock is just 50 yards away and the beach is just 100 yards away. I fished every p day and caught something everyday. There are a lot of good restaurants close by and plenty of things to do. Mark is a nice guy and was very helpful with area info and making our reservations. We would definitely stay there again and I'm going to hang on to Mark's phone number.

Owner Supplied Testimonials
Guestbook

Since the listing 62321, beach cottage, is brand new to the rental property market, the owners asked me to write some feedback regarding another property they own in the same private courtyard. We rented for a month recently and highly recommend renting from Mark. He is, without question, the most honest and helpful person we have ever rented from. His wife has done an incredible job decorating and remodeling the properties. When we got home we missed the place so badly that we just booked our next vacation with Mark. Even though it's nearly 6 months away it gives us something to look forward to. The white sand beach just steps away! Great fishing on the Bridge St Pier about a 1/4 down the road. Mark even supplies the fishing gear. We didn't catch a fish (not fishermen), but had fun trying. Had a lot of bites. Mark's vacation resort cottages are on the best part of the island. All the restaurants, shops, beach activities all within walking distance! We used a total of 1/4 gallon of gas in 1 month! When we needed to go further than we could walk we took the free trolley!! It took us all the way to Sarasota. After a day of going to the Aquarium and Museums, etc we took the trolley back! We only wish the month didn't go by so fast. So, if you are looking for the perfect beach vacation and want to be treated fairly and get more than you paid for, rent one of the bradenton beach properties from Mark. I am certain, you will be glad you did. I know we have found our new favorite vacation place.
