Anna Maria Island is the First Barrier Island south of Tampa Bay. Bradenton Beach is at the south end of the Island. To the west, The Gulf of Mexico offers miles of spectacular, uninterrupted sugar sand beaches and emerald waters. To the east, Anna Maria Sound, a mangrove lined bay, has calm docking and mooring areas, a municipal pier, boat launches, nature trails and the Florida Intracoastal Waterway.

Bradenton Beach is just an hour's drive from Tampa International Airport. The Sarasota/Bradenton Airport is sixteen miles to the east. Interstate 75 is forty minutes away. Access from the mainland, to the east (Bradenton) is by bridges on Cortez Road W (Rte 684) or Manatee Avenue W (Rte 64). From the south (Longboat Key) via the bridge over Longboat Pass. The Island is seven miles long and only a few blocks wide, providing the sounds and feel of the water wherever you are.

The condo has been completely renovated - even some walls were moved. The floors in the bedrooms are carpeted, the rest is 18 inch Italian Terra Rosa porcelain tile. Panel doors, over-sized baseboards and trim, recessed lighting and faux wall finishes contribute to the British-Colonial inspired decor. Gulf View is located directly on the Gulf of Mexico, at the west end of Historic Bridge Street. it is an oasis - a quiet, peaceful, comfortable space where you can relax and rejuvenate.

The open-concept living-dining area has two bamboo framed upholstered love seats, swivel barrel chairs so you can enjoy the sunsets, an entertainment center stocked with books, board games and a 42' Hi-Definition TV and DVD player. There is a variable speed ceiling fan. Sliding glass doors open to a screened-in balcony, overlooking the beach, which provides Gulf breezes, the sound of the surf, spectacular views of the water and each evening a beautiful and unique sunset. Watch the diving pelicans and, if you are lucky, catch a glimpse of a dolphin.

The dining area has a rattan glass topped table with six chairs. There is a pass-thru bar to the kitchen. The chandelier has a dimmer switch - for your mood lighting.

The kitchen was gutted and reconfigured. The wall between the kitchen and the dining room was raised with a pass-thru bar. Short upper cabinets with see-thru glass on both sides were installed over the bar. All new cabinets, appliances and counter tops were installed throughout. There is an east facing window with a top-down, bottom-up pleated shade enabling you to get light from the top while otherwise having total privacy. The kitchen is gourmet equipped with dishes, flatware, pots, pans, bake-ware, utensils and small appliances. Whether you want a cup of coffee, freshly squeezed orange juice or a full gourmet meal, whatever you need is there!.

The master bedroom has direct access to the balcony. A Cafe Au Lait color wicker bedroom suite has a king-size bed with a premium mattress, dresser and two night stands. There is a 37' HD TV, a DVD Player, a large walk-in closet with custom organizers, a variable speed ceiling fan and an en-suite bath.

Since #101 is an end unit, the second bedroom does not have windows on the catwalk. There is complete privacy. A south facing, outside wall window has a room darkening, top-down bottom/up custom shade. Outfitted with a white wicker suite, two twins beds with premium mattresses, a night stand, chest of drawers and dresser. It is decorated with beautiful linens, has a variable-speed ceiling fan and a wall-to-wall organized closet. The tub/shower full bath is one step from the bedroom door.

Both bathrooms have adult height vanities, handicapped height toilets, full width/height mirrors, exhaust fans and recessed lighting. Each has all new fixtures and was decorated to co-ordinate with its adjacent bedroom. The vanities have ample room with drawers and under-sink storage.

The screened-in balcony, which is directly on the Gulf of Mexico, runs across the front of the condo.. It is furnished with a table and four chairs; two mesh, hi-back swivel rockers and a side table. There are two ceiling fans. You have an unparalleled view of the Gulf of Mexico and a front row seat for the nightly show at sunset.

Shirley and her Condo unit are AWESOME !!
Our group consisted of 12 women ages 54 - 80 and we loved everything about our week, location ( we are all Moose members and unit is right next door to Moose Club on beach ) Shirley helped us find other condo owners in building to rent from and we had a total of 3 with 4 girls in each unit 👍�😍�. The Condo was clean and well equipped with nice beach towels, soft sheets for sunburn skin, comfy beds , nice kitchen, BEAUTIFUL lanai porch with the most perfect view of the Gulf of Mexico and sunsets ! We planned our trip 1 1/2 years ago and Shirley was a joy to work with and extremely organized There is a noise ordinance on island so after 10:00 the place is as quiet as needed , the building is more soundproof than any place I have ever stayed and the music and people and Moose Club are FUN ! We all absolutely LOVED it there The Circle K is directly across street and you can get online and order groceries from Publix and super nice people deliver them right to the Condo! We had no vehicles so it was great We walked the Coquina Beach shaded path for exercise and shopping at the beach market on Wednesday’s and Sunday’s and caught the trolley north very near the Condo I hope we can return every year !!!

Noisy Neighbors
The property was very clean and in good condition. The view was amazing. The problem is with the Moose Lodge next door. This unit is directly next to the lodge and they start cleaning/prepping early in the morning. There is a window in the second b/r facing their garbage can area/parking lot. Once the lodge opens, its non stop loud speaker calling out orders to be picked up. Some nights the crowds get very noisy.

Great Gulf Front Getaway`
We were very happy with our two week stay at Unit 101 in Gulf View. In fact, out of the three units we have stayed in at this location, my wife liked this one the best. Both her and I felt it gave you a very homey atmosphere. We loved the African style decor and enjoyed having a nice sized kitchen with all the necessities included. The master bedroom, which was all we used, was very nice. It included a large and very comfortable King sized bed and beautiful view of the Gulf through sliding glass doors that led to the balcony. It was always a welcome retreat after spending the days in various adventures throughout the island or in the Bradenton and Sarasota area. The two slight things that were a bit puzzling were the the lack of a booklet with information about the condo, which left us with questions as what to do for checkout. Hopefully, we did the right things such as taking the sheets off the bed etc. and the TV setup which took me awhile to determine how it worked. However, after a day or two I became pretty proficient at doing that and it was no further a problem. The other thing I would like to mention, is just how helpful and kind the owner, Shirley, was during the whole process from the time we reserved the unit right on up to our arrival there. No one should have any qualms renting from this fine lady. In fact, we have already booked two weeks for next year in this wonderful unit.

Great location and wonderful ocean views.
My husband and I spent a week at Gulf View and enjoyed our stay immensely. Clean, well supplied condo and perfect ocean views. The pool was on the beach side and nice and warm. Floated every day and met many nice people. Only 10 units in the condo so never crowded. Would stay again. Owner was also very responsive to emails.

We loved our stay in Shirley's condo!
We loved our 2+ week stay in Shirley’s condo. It was exactly as described, as well as clean and well-maintained. The condo, and I believe the entire building, is smoke-free. The building manager was onsite regularly, along with pool and garden service people. You will find everything you need there to enjoy the property both inside and out – more than enough bed and bath linens, beach towels/chairs/toys, a completely outfitted kitchen (we added some BBQ tongs to the collection) and a nice collection of books to read. The building is right on a beautiful white sand public beach, with a fenced in pool area to provide some privacy if you prefer. Most of our evenings were spent on the balcony, enjoying the crashing waves. We never even used the dining room table – all meals were on the balcony. Alas, we returned home and our lake is still frozen!! The condo is pet-friendly so our two dogs really enjoyed their time there too. Unfortunately, the public beach does not allow dogs, but we let them lounge around on the sand in the fenced in area. They are well-behaved and the neighbours didn’t seem to mind. If you do have a dog, there is a nice dog park in Holmes Beach, a few kilometers down the road. The condo is located right on the main road, in one of the busier areas of Anna Maria Island. On the plus side, you will be within walking distance of many restaurants and shops, which we took full advantage of. The ice cream shop across the street is almost too close – we spent way too much time over there. Their ice cream is very good! The area is quite nice, with many people out walking during the day and evening. Bicycles abound, as well as a free trolley which runs up and down the island. On the minus side, there is a fair bit of street noise. However, on the beach side of the building, the crashing waves block most of the street noise. Next door to the building, is a Moose Lodge which, being right on the beach too, is quite active particularly on weekends. Generally, they are good neighbours, no wild parties or anything. However, they use a PA system to announce when food orders are ready and calling raffle numbers. It is not too loud, but it was a bit annoying at times when trying to enjoy the balcony in the evening. Shirley was great to deal with – very responsive with emails and very accommodating when we decided to extend our stay a few days.

A Beautiful Place by the Sea!
While we are Sarasota Residents, we wanted a quick week away from the calendar, social events and life sort of speak. We felt as if we were in Provincetown, MA! First, Shirley's condo has all the necessities for a very comfortable stay, a view to die for, fully stocked kitchen, baths and a washer and dryer, most importantly a view to die for and right on the beach, sugary sand and if you don't want to sit on the beach, lounge by the pool. Walking distance to terrific restaurants and seaside shops. People are friendly and once you cross the bridge it's as if you are on island time. We travel often, are from Northern New England and now reside in Sarasota on a full time basis, who knew paradise was 14 miles from our driveway yet miles away! Shirley is an amazing host, although out of town, she makes it a point to check in and make sure all is in order upon arrival and is reachable should you need anything. We will be back sooner rather than later!

Non smokers beware!!
On a positive note this property is in a great location on the beach. The pool area is good with lots of sun loungers and a BBQ. (Pool is not heated) It's in reasonable decor but could do with a little work in places. I was really disappointed with a few things, firstly - it really smells of cigarette smoke as non smokers we found it very off putting. The smell was even on the bedsheets and towels. I bought air freshener which helped a little. Secondly there's no deck chairs, parasols or any kind of beach equipment that we could use. Some of the other apartments in the block had these things included. I would return to this block but not this apartment.

Very nice place to stay. Very family friendly. Lots of stuff to do around the area
We've been staying at Gulf View Condos for about 12 years. We've stayed in this particular condo for the last 2 years consecutive. The owner is very nice and prompt with her responses. Always great communication back and forth. Overall the condo is clean and sits directly over the pool which is nice when you have kids. The beach is beautiful white sand and the waterline is real close. (Not a far walk to carry everything down). This year we seen some dolphins and manatees right off the beach. You can fish on a pier within sight of the condo also. Lots of shells and also found some sharks teeth. Places to eat within walking distance. There's a great ice cream shop across the street caddy corner to the condo. Christian owned and the ice cream is made by the Amish and is excellent. We also went parasailing right off of our beach. Went on a fishing charter with the kids and caught some flounder, trout, and mackerel. Like I said, there's lots to do and you won't get board. We definitely plan on doing it again next year in the same condo. Thank you Shirley for sharing your beautiful condo with my family making great wonderful memories. Can't wait until summer of 2018.

Exactly as advertised, plus more.
This condo was the most well stocked we've ever rented. There were plenty of plush towels, lots of pillows, etc. We've always had to bring our own dish and dishwasher detergent, paper towels, toilet paper, etc. This unit supplied it all. The beach was a short walk and the ocean very calm and clear. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Amazing week!
Had another amazing week at Gulf View Condos. Shirley was very helpful and extremely quick to respond to emails. The condo was clean, spacious, equipped with everything we needed for the week and the storage locker was filled with beach necessities. Can't beat the view from the deck where we saw beautiful sunsets. We even saw dolphins and a couple of manatees swim by! Looking forward to coming back next year!

PERFECT!
This was the first time staying and this condo and we could not have asked for more! Everything you need is here. The views from the lanai are spectacular! The pool was great and lots to do close by without ever using your car! Did not use it, but he free island trolley stops just outside the complex. The only downside? Having to head back north tomorrow! Thank you for sharing your lovely condo with us! We are hoping to be able to come back in 2018!

Perfectly convenient and all we needed
We had a great time in this condo that was convenient to everything: trolley for the whole island, good restaurants, convnenient store, the Cortez bridge and more. We walked to most places and took the trolley to others. This is right on the beach with a lovely view from the balcony where we ate lunch and enjoyed the sunset. Be aware there is no elevator to this condo. A few things needed maintenance during our
