My wife, her brother, his wife, and I spent a week at this property in mid December. My wife and I had honeymooned in Bradenton three years ago and fell in love with the town and its closeness to some of the nicest beaches I have ever been to. We were hesitant at first to rent such a new rental property, but the pictures and location enticed us to give it a try. We knew we couldn’t afford to rent right on the beach, and we also didn’t always enjoy how busy the area right near the beach could be. This house ended up being the perfect combination of being close enough to drive over to the beach every single day we were there, and to also be close to the heart of downtown Bradenton. We were blown away by some of what Downtown Bradenton had to offer. There are two great breweries within walking distance of this rental. We also ate two separate mornings at the same breakfast spot downtown. The house is perfectly equipped to support 4 people. We cooked two meals a day at the house and it worked great. The bedrooms are comfortable, and the bathroom worked fine with us four. The beaches in this part of Florida are some of the finest beaches I have ever been to. Anna Maria Island is a place we will continue to explore time and time again. Last, but not least, this rental was close (about 30 minute drive) to three different destinations that we wanted to check out. Sarasota for a winery, Tampa for a night out and for flights, and St. Petersburg for a trip downtown to meet up with friends. I don’t think there is a more central and affordable place to experience this part of Florida. We will be coming back to this rental!
