Brits Chris and wife Irene fell in love with Bradenton Beach on Anna Maria Island more than 30 years ago and have happy memories of family holidays there with their two children.
In 2015, their long-held pipe dream of one day owning their own holiday home in Bradenton Beach was finally realized.
One day they’ll get to spend longer there but in the meantime, they are happy to share their home from home with others.

Located on Anna Maria Island off the Gulf Coast and a brief drive from Bradenton and Sarasota, Bradenton Beach is a small town known for its fishing piers, sugar-sand beaches and a quaint strip of shops, restaurants and other family-owned businesses. The pace noticeably slows on the Gulf retreat of Bradenton Beach. Drive-through restaurants are prohibited here. Exhibit B: On Pine Avenue, near the northern end of the island, you'll find French-milled soaps, specialty olive oils, handmade clothing and small art galleries. Pine Avenue also is home to the Anna Maria Island Historical Museum, Artspace Studios and Gallery and Beach Bums, which rents bikes, kayaks and paddleboards for exploring the area
