Are you planning a trip to Anna Maria Island? You’re in for the vacation of a lifetime! But before you can visit our shores, you’re going to need to decide where to stay. This island has three different areas: Anna Maria to the north, Holmes Beach in the middle, and Bradenton Beach to the south.
You’ll find all kinds of things to do no matter which city you stay in, and since the island is only seven miles long, you’ll have plenty of time to explore all three areas. While these cities are phenomenal, Bradenton Beach tends to be the most popular.
Bradenton Beach offers a little something for everyone to do, whether you’re in town for a romantic getaway or a fun family vacation. You can enjoy beautiful beaches, fresh seafood at unique local restaurants, fascinating Florida history, and so much more. Plus, Bradenton Beach is just minutes away from the mainland, opening up countless more opportunities for fun and adventure. Luckily, there are tons of places to stay in this city, no matter how many people you’re bringing along with you. When planning your stay, look into these popular Bradenton Beach rentals!
If you’re bringing the family or a small group of friends down to Anna Maria Island, consider this 3-bed, 2-bath condo. There’s plenty of room to sleep up to 6 people. As soon as you step inside, you’re sure to be impressed by the tasteful tropical décor. As you explore your condo, you’ll find spacious bedrooms and bathrooms, stunning views of the Gulf of Mexico from your window, and an incredible outdoor dining area. You’ll also have access to your own fully stocked kitchen, high-speed internet access, an in-unit washer and dryer, and more.
Not only will you have access to fantastic amenities inside your rental, but you can also explore what the complex has to offer. If you don’t want to head down to the beach, you can still cool off with a dip in one of the two pools, one of which is Gulf-front! Of course, you’re also just steps from the beach, so you can go swimming or enjoy some fun watersports whenever you please! You can easily walk to Bridge Street to check out some local shopping and dining, and for anything else on the island, catch a ride on the free island trolley.
Would you rather stay in a vacation home rather than a condo? Then 2206 Ave. C might be the place for you. This 4-bed, 2-bath vacation home is perfectly suited for up to 8 people and is easily one of our most popular Bradenton Beach vacation rentals! You’ll be just one block away from the beach, and we’ve also provided all the beach chairs and toys you might need! Inside your vacation home, you’ll find amenities like a fully equipped kitchen, washer and dryer, high-speed WiFi, and more.
One of the best things about staying in a vacation home is privacy and seclusion. You’ll have more room to yourself than you would in a hotel, and in this particular home, you’ll be settled in a cozy residential neighborhood, allowing you to feel like one of the locals. But don’t worry! You can still quickly get to local attractions and even head onto the mainland if you want more to do. Once you get back home, head into your backyard to relax amidst the tropical paradise and unwind in your heated outdoor pool. What could say “paradise” better than that?
The last couple of rentals have been larger and suitable for bigger groups, but what if you don’t need that much space? In that case, check out Bay View Condo C. This 2-bed, 2-bath condo sleeps up to 4 guests and will be your perfect “home away from home” during your trip. Inside your unit, you’ll have an incredible view of the bay from the living room or from your screened balcony. You can also enjoy having high-speed WiFi, convenient parking, your washer and dryer, and a dedicated dining area, helping you truly settle in.
When you’re ready to head outside, there’s plenty more to be discovered. You can relax in your heated pool and let all your worries melt away, or you can venture over to the pier and cast your line for a fun afternoon of fishing. If you want to head to the beach, you’re just a short distance away and can swim, snorkel, or scuba dive as you please. As with all of these rentals, you’re just a short trip from the mainland as well. Visit the nearby town of Bradenton to experience the Bradenton Riverwalk and more!
Last but certainly not least on our list is this quaint 1-bed, 1-bath condo rental, ideal for groups of up to 4 people. If you’re visiting from January through April, it’s important to note that this condo requires Saturday to Saturday bookings. You’ll have plenty of time to settle into your condo and enjoy features like the breathtaking beach view, high-speed internet access, flat-screen TV, and convenient kitchen.
The amenities you get with this condo rival any of the best Anna Maria Island vacation rentals. You can head outside to take advantage of the community pool and the tennis courts, and you can even go into the clubhouse to use the washer and dryer. Plus, this community is located right across the street from the beach, so you can walk over and enjoy the sun and surf whenever you please! If you’re bringing a smaller group of people or are planning a romantic vacation with your sweetie, this condo rental offers everything you might need for an unforgettable stay.
Once you’ve decided which vacation rental is right for your group, you can start looking into the best things to do in Bradenton Beach! Whether you want to head to the beach, explore the local shops, dine on mouthwatering seafood, or relax in nature, Bradenton Beach truly has it all. Want even more to explore? Hop on the island trolley or drive over to the mainland to find popular attractions like the Village of the Arts Bradenton, DeSoto National Memorial, the Bishop Museum of Science and Nature, and more!
