Where To Stay On Anna Maria Island – Guest reviews – Super Big Shout Out To The Rudolph Family For Their Awwwwesome Review:

Review #20531558 “The Anna Maria Island Beach Sands-Private Beach Access-Heated Pool-Overlooks The Gulf”

Family Friendly Beach Getaway!!!!
★ ★ ★ ★ ★
We absolutely loved the location of this condo! We explored all the beaches but found the one directly across the road had the best beach and least amount of people. We walked to a different restaurant every evening. It’s close to the bridge street warf where we rented fishing rods. Lots of shopping handy too.
The condo itself was very well equipped with everything we needed to cook and go to the beach. Beds where super comfy. The TV was huge with a ton of channels…not that we had time to watch it much!
Our 3 kids slept in the guest bedroom and had lots of room for their things.
All the furniture was very modern and new. The view from the deck is stunning but u can also see the ocean from almost every window.
On our arrival there was wine and chocolates on the counter waiting for us.
Terry was super helpful and gave us lots of advice on where to eat and what to see. He also gave us his cell number if we needed help with anything.
We loved our stay and would return in a heartbeat!

Where To Stay On Anna Maria Island – Guest reviews – A Very Special Thank You To John & Clare For Their Awesome Review

“Excellent Value”

Hi Terry and Sandy,

We really enjoyed our stay at your Anna Marie Island condo unit #110. . We were impressed with the spacousness, tasteful furniture and decor, the wall hangings were especially nice, and the whole place was bright and new. There were way more accessories than we needed or used, but we noticed that all were of high quality and very nice….even the beach chairs!. We especially liked the location on a quiet side street with easy access across to our “almost private” beach , and we spent several days there.

We became regulars at the Kokonut Beach bar and liked the fact that we could easily walk there and back after a few pops. We also tried out SandBar, Harbor House, Skinney’s, 2 or 3 at Bridge Street, and several others…I think the only one we missed was Rod & Reel..

We also enjoyed the heated pool, and swam and visited with several other snowbirds and permanent residents. You folks have a very nice place there and Thank You for making it nice for us.

The only suggestions we would make would be a few throw rugs inside the door and balcony entrances to help trap sand before it gets in….and maybe a small table for drinks and snacks on the balcony. We enjoyed sitting out on the balcony and having wine and cheese . We don’t have any plans to return to Florida within the next year, but will certainly be back next time.

JOHN & CLARE NICOL

Thank you John & Clare from Anna Maria Island Condo Rentals – 601 Gulf Dr. N. Bradenton Beach, Fl 34217

A Very Special Thank You To The Murphy Family For Their Awesome Review.

IT WAS OUR PLEASURE TO HAVE SHARON AND HER FAMILY AS OUR GUEST FOR THE SECOND CONSECUTIVE YEAR ON ANNA MARIA ISLAND AT “THE BEACH SANDS CONDO”

Great, Wow!!!

The Beach Sands Condo!!!

601 Gulf Drive North,
Bradenton Beach, FL, 34217, United States
Date of Stay
Feb 10, 2017
Helpful votes: 10/10

When they say right on the beach, they are not fooling. Get up in the morning and in two seconds you are walking on the beach. The sand on the beach feels and looks like flour. I still can’t get over how wonderful it felt. The condo has all the latest from kitchen to bedroom. Great just sitting in the comfortable chair and looking out at the water. I have been twice and plan on going back. You really should rent it. Honest!!

“First of all I have to say, Terry is just awesome to work with. The return calls, the follow up is second to none. I live in Florida and have stayed just about everywhere in the state. Anna Maria is wonderful! After every place I’ve been in the state, AMI is tops. Siesta key is a close second. The condo is perfect, everything you need to accommodate all your needs. The pool is great, beach is pristine. If you’re looking for the perfect vacation…”make sure you look up Terry Whyte” at Anna Maria Island Condo Rentals

Perfect location and an outstanding rental unit!601 Gulf Drive North, Bradenton Beach, FL, 34217, United States
Date of Stay
Apr 28, 2017

If you’re searching for the perfect location on Anna Maria Island, and you also want a rental unit that is clean and well stocked, look no further. We loved the gorgeous views from the master bedroom and family room. The screened in porch was a bonus, as well. It is literally just a few steps away.

This particular spot on the beach is not crowded, and it’s simply beautiful. We watched a pod of dolphins swimming at sunset on our first night. Right next door, you will find the Wicked Cantina, where we enjoyed some delicious margaritas and fish tacos. It is an easy drive to Publix, dining options, little shops, piers, etc.

Terry is very easy to work with, highly responsive and has really updated the unit with tasteful furnishings and decor. The master bed is super comfy, and we had plenty of towels, beach towels, beach gear, etc. The pool is also very close to the unit, and it is well kept and the perfect size. I would definitely recommend the Beach Sands unit to anyone wanting a relaxing get away in a great location. Thanks for sharing your condo, Terry!

Great family vacation

Left on Oct 7, 2017 for a stay in Sep 2017

Amazing beach. Kids friendly. Great restaurants alongside the beach with great seafood. Nice size swimming pool. Great condo, very well organized, has everything you needed for the beach and pool . It’s facing the beach and we enjoyed the sunset as well as the view of the ocean every day. Very clean, linens smell fresh, plenty of towels. Terry, the owner, made sure that we had everything we needed. My family had an amazing vacation. Definitely planning to come back.
