Island House - Funboard | Bradenton Beach Vacation Rental

Location, location, location, this cozy quaint beach house is centrally located on Anna Maria Island and is less than a 2 minute walk from Holmes Beach.  The 2 bedroom and 1 bathroom unit is not only a very short walking distance to the beach, but is also a short walking distance to shopping and restaurants.  The property was recently updated and new furniture including mattresses and linens were placed in the unit.  When you are not at the beach, relax on the large comfortable sectional sofa or enjoy a home cooked meal from the full kitchen with breakfast bar.

Every Island attraction is right at your fingertips during your stay here. Whether you want to sink your toes in the soft white sands on the beach, or pause to watch the sunset over the tranquilly Gulf of Mexico Ocean, you’ll only have to walk a short distance. Come and experience for yourself why Anna Maria Island is considered Florida's hidden gem! 

The free Island Trolley is ready to take you to the north end of the island to visit the village of Anna Maria, where two historic piers offer opportunities for fishing and dinning. Shops restaurants, galleries, and even a museum and community theater can also be found on the north end of the island. 

Holmes Beach, you can get off the Trolley to enjoy more excellent shops and restaurants, as well as a marina, library, free community tennis courts, and several gyms open to visitors.

You will also want to explore the rest of Bradenton Beach. Historic Bridge Street was once the location of the very first bridge to the mainland. Today's Cortez Bridge, just a bit to the north, is made out of sturdier stuff than the original wood structure, but the original street is still there, and it is a fun place for shopping, dining, live music, a weekly open-air market (in season), fishing, and even miniature golf!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The unit was clean and neat. The second time we have rented this unit and even with the activities limited by CoVid 19 we were able to walk on the beach
Happy at the beach

The apartment was comfortable but basic. It accommodated two adults and two children with ease and is a short distance from a gorgeous beach and to Walgreens and Publix. It is also located on a main road with access to a free trolley so you can easily get to some of the local restaurants.

I enjoyed an extended stay in this rental. There were minor maintenance issues and they were all taken care of swiftly. The property manager responds very quickly to all correspondence. The convenience of having a washer and dryer was very nice. The beds were super comfortable. There isn’t an oven but the cook top and the grill outside were enough to cook our meals. The walk to the beach is easy and wonderful to be so close. I enjoyed our stay!

Our bungalow near the beach was easy to find, conveniently located a short bleach from the beach, and clean and comfortable. It is the bottom floor of a home and so the ceilings seem low. And, there are several beams sticking out at an angle that you have to walk around. They didn’t bother us. It is a cozy, clean rental and we felt it was a good value.

Great little place. Perfect location and outside shower w/ hot and cold was a bonus. One wall a/c unit, but we read the reviews and brought an additional fan. Temperature was fine with fans. No oven, and some of the pots and pans need to be replaced, but otherwise kitchen was clean and well stocked. The noise upstairs is loud and as the reviews state you hear every step, but we didn't mind it to much we were out and about during the day. Laundry room was great to have also! No bugs! Very clean! Beds are comfortable and the space itself was very good for our family. We cant wait to come back! Thanks! *I did not mention the pans to management, We just went out to eat lol

The rental was adequate but very small. Because I have a disability the two steps down with no handhold was difficult. We could hear every step from the unit above us and even snoring. The location is good with a variety of choices for eating and groceriy shopping. The beach is close and accessible as is the bus service.

Great location you don't have to cross any busy roads to get to the beach, lots of parking. This place is noisy if people are in the upstairs. No sound insulation between the floors. Sounded as if we were in the basement of a bowling alley. The price was good and it allowed us to find a better place for next year, with the same property management.
Good room for the price

All in all it was a good place. We stayed in the lower unit and there was a lot of noise from the unit above us. You could hear people walking and talking in normal voices. But for the price and distance to the beach I was very happy. It was clean and well equipped.

The property was nice, but the parking was difficult. Most did not read the directions and we would be blocked in and have to wait or find someone to move their vehicle. That is not the owners fault, but maybe lining parking spaces might help. Secondly, it was quite warm with a 2 bedroom and not being able to shut the doors because of having a wall unit. The directions told us not to go go below 73, but with fans it still made nights a little warm....but me made it. :)

That morning we were telephoned the roof collapsed in our rental & thank goodness he put us up in another, only downfall, was the new rental did not have 2 bathrooms, only 1. The location was perfect, backyard set up great, toilet did run every 10 min all day/night, not sure why?? But everything else was perfect!

We had a great stay. Came down for a long weekend. The rental is a short walk to the beach and stores. Only bad thing to say is about the idiots staying in the apartment above us. Apparently stomping around and listening to music at 4am was part of their vacation plans. We would definitely stay there again (and hope those jerks are not above us again)

My Children and I stayed 10 days. The place had everything we needed. A home away from home. The beach was just couple small blocks away. I will be looking to stay again in the future.
Relaxing stay close to beach

Location of the cottage was great, the place looked updated. I liked everything but my wife didn't like that there was no bathtub. Other than that is was a perfect stay.
