A Great Vacation Location

By: Trip Date: 07/02/2022

property was very clean, easy check in/check out. owner was super nice!!

Nice and Pleasant

By: Trip Date: 06/18/2022

I enjoy my stay very much. Perhaps a elevator.

Would definitely stay there again!

By: Trip Date: 06/10/2022

The property was exactly as advertised in the photos. Very clean, spacious and equipped with everything you might need. Prior guests have let behind beach equipment- we had boogie boards, chairs, umbrella, pool floats – we didn’t have to rent a thing. There were also books and cards to play with.

Pleasant Stay

By: Trip Date: 05/07/2022

The property had a good location. The rental had everything we needed including beach chairs, umbrella, and two boogie boards. Only complaints are that it had dirty walls in bathrooms and other various locations and the finish/paint was peeling off the tub and tile in both bathrooms. One shower curtain had mildew/mold at the bottom. The beach across the street is beautiful and not very busy with places to eat within walking distance. The pool was very warm and never crowded. Overall a nice place to stay and we enjoyed our visit.

Can’t Beat the Location

By: Trip Date: 04/08/2017

We have been very pleased working with Paradise Rentals. We have been in Gulf Watch 3 times and love the area. It is so accessible to the beach and walking distance to shops and restaurants. The pool area is a plus. We have been in Unit 205 twice and find it very nice. Thanks for making our vacation so enjoyable. We will be back.

Can’t Wait to Return

By: Trip Date: 02/01/2017

This unit is very comfortable and well stocked with everything we needed for our stay. We enjoyed the swimming pool, the screened in balcony and the sunset views. In fact, we’ll be back next year we like it so much.

Nice Vacation

By: Trip Date: 09/12/2016

The condo was well equipped. The location was good and a short way to the beach.

The Perfect Spot

By: Trip Date: 07/16/2016

The apartment is on 2nd floor, and no lift, however the apartment is spacious, fully stocked with everything- from a slow cooker to beach equipment – even a large cool box! Washing machine and dryer. We loved the beds – everyone has their own preference in mattresses but we slept so well during our two weeks holiday. The balcony – I must mention the balcony where we spent a lot of time. During day time you have good view of the Gulf and at night we sat and listened to the sound of rolling waves – not big but plenty of space for a family of four. There are games books and of course a telly (in almost every room) – we don’t watch much TV but also this had a easy to follow manual. There were even a basket with lots of leaflets for activities in the area. The allocated parking under the building is plenty with space enough for two cars and there is also allocated space for visitors. We never used the communal swimming pool but it looked clean and welcoming. The usual folder for arriving and departing guests were easy to read too. One thing missing – a guestbook – we would have loved to leave a message to the owner to say thank you for opening their home to us.

We loved our stay & hope to come back soon.

We had a wonderful vacation at Bradenton Beach. The condo was immaculate, newly remodeled & had everything we needed. It was located close to restaurants & the beach was beautiful & was right across the street.

Loved it, no complaints!!!!

Good location, clean, we equipped property!

Beach Birthday Celebration

By: Trip Date: 06/01/2020

I rented the unit for a week and celebrated my birthday first week of June here. First off, the place was very clean and remodeled kitchen and bathrooms. I cooked my meals in the fully stocked kitchen with all you need, and didn’t visit any restaurants except Sand Bar on one of the days. Walked across the street to the beach which is a BIG plus and they have a rinse off hose downstairs. They even have beach supplies. The property manager was great and came right away to change a smoke detector battery which started beeping on one of the days. No complaints and will visit again.

Just as Pictured

By: Trip Date: 06/12/2020

Trip was great, place was just as described. We loved it

Love This Location

By: Trip Date: 07/10/2020

Had a great time at Anna Maria Island. The beach is beautiful and the restaurants are all nearby; they offer good food and are not too expensive. The apartment at 601 Gulf Dr N is very clean and comfortable. Right across from the beach and has everything you would need for a nice stay. Would recommend this place to my friends.

Convenient and Well Stocked

By: Trip Date: 06/12/2021

Would definitely recommend this property & will definitely return.

Winter in FL

By: Trip Date: 12/26/2019

Absolutely fabulous! No neighbor noise, private, close to white sands beach, I would recommend to anyone!
Basically a condo, good kitchen, well equipped!
Has beach chairs and all towels!
We hope to be there at the same time in 2020/2021!

Thank you for opening up your home to us

By: Trip Date: 07/21/2018

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at 205 Gulf Watch last week. The check in process is so smooth and the island is beautiful! The location of Gulf Watch is perfect! We were only a block away from restaurants and stores. We let the kids walk to Anna Maria Pier to fish each night. They caught a variety of small sharks, catfish, snook and flounder. This was definitely a vacation to remember! The condo was stocked with EVERYTHING we could have possibly needed.  Thanks again! We will be back!
