Interaction with Guests
Owner on site.
Bradenton Beach is on the Gulf Coast of Florida, just below St Petersburg, and slightly north of Sarasota. Cross the bridge from Cortez and you will find yourself transported to another world – to delightful Bradenton Beach.This charming coastal resort town has just 1500 locals yet it remains a vibrant friendly community where there’s always something going on.
Bradenton Beach is at the southern end of the charmingly named Anna Maria Island, which lies to the south of Tampa Bay. This beachside community has a certain unspoilt, Old Florida charm and is respectful of the bountiful natural resources of this lovely area. The city enjoys miles of flat public beaches which are often deserted. The soft sugar-white sand borders the mangrove-lined bay where calm docking and mooring makes it popular with local fishing craft. The historic city pier has a popular pastel-colored café offering a full menu, or you can pick up some fresh bait and catch something for supper. Fishing tours are available for those who are a little more ambitious.The six local parks provide picnic and beach facilities, a play area and a basketball court along with public boat ramps and plenty of access to the endless stretches of beach. The Tingley Memorial Library behind the Bradenton beach City Hall mark the Downtown area whilst Bridge Street has a range of prettily presented shops and local services in historic buildings.
With average temperatures from 72-91F in August and a pleasant 50-72F in January, Bradenton Beach continues to be a popular year-round vacation destination for families, couples and retirees. With excellent local restaurants, high quality vacation apartments and sunsets to die for, Bradenton Beach offers a chance to escape the crowded cities and relax, yet is within a short drive of all Florida’s main entertainment and attractions.
Free trolley stops in front of the Bird's Nest. Parking included.

We found the condo was even better than expected. It was roomy and very clean, and had a well stocked kitchen. We cooked most of our own meals and then sat on the balcony enjoying our food and watching the magnificent sunsets every evening. Just walk across the street and you are on a beautiful beach at the less built up end of the island. The views of the ocean from the living room and master bedroom were wonderful, and there was a deck facing the bay side as well. There was a hot tub and charcoal grills. The covered parking was also very nice as the Florida sun can make getting into a car unpleasant.
I would stay there again if I get back to that area!
Wir sind sehr freundlich empfangen worden. Die Unterkunft entsprach der Beschreibung. Die Aussicht auf's Meer ist super!
Wir hatten so gut wie nichts zu bemängeln und würden nochmal wieder kommen.
Alessandra was there on arrival and very informative on local restaurants and bars nearby.
The apartment was clean and the kitchen well equipped and there wasn't clutter which most air bnb apartments have.
The biggest plus for this apartment was the view and the proximity to the beach. Alessandra had beach towels,beach chairs and an umbrella for use.
There was no stress on departing either.
We would definitely recommend and return next year.

alessandra war wie vereinbart vor ort als wir angekommen sind. das einchecken war reibungslos, haus war wie beschrieben und auf den fotos im inet alles sauber und in gutem zustand. wir waren auf anna maria island um zu heiraten, die strände und das wasser sind traumhaft und morgens beim früstücken auf unserer terrasse konte man den Delphinen beim fischen zuschauen. einkaufsmöglichkeiten sind vorm ort alle vorhanden. wenn wir das nächste mal auf AMI sind werden wir die unterkunft auf jeden fall wieder buchen.
This is a great place to stay, the house is lovely and has all the amenities that you need. Having the balconies at both sides gives the choice of sunshine or shade. The location is perfect for the beach, bars, restaurants and trolley stop.
What a great find!
Spent Easter Break at the Bird's Nest in Bradenton Beach with our 10 year old daughter. Owner and host Amerigo welcomed us warmly and showed us around the apartment and outdoor spaces. Great master bedroom and bathroom upstairs and a good sized living room, kitchen, second bedroom with bathroom downstairs. The bathrooms are on the smaller side, but OK for us as we are all very slender. We loved the outdoor porch for morning breakfast and lunches, overlooking the Gulf of Mexico.
Great location as well - on the Southern part of the island, near Bridge Street and lots of restaurants in walking distance. We loved the Beach House, best sunset in town and nice food. Went bicycling in the North and rented bikes from the Beach Bumbs, great people and perfect service. There are free trolleys riding the island up and down and you almost don't need a car at all.
We went to a Sea Explorer Tour from the Mote Museum in Longboat Key and saw quite a few dolphins, had lunch at Tommy Bahama's in downtown Longboat Key which was probably our best overall dining experience on this trip. Even though we enjoyed the Island Creperie on Bridge Street for dessert as well - great crepes and very friendly service!
Overall a great success. The Bird's Nest is super close to the beach, has a very friendly host, a spacious apartment and for us a place to come back to.
molte grazie Amerigo
