We will be spending the last 5 nights of our trip next August on the Gulf Coast and were looking at the Bradenton/Anna Maria Island area. We don't want to travel too far south as we will be flying back from Tampa. I had originally looked at the Shorewalk Vacation Villas in Bradenton as they offered a 2 bed unit and were very reasonable - also seemed to get good reviews. I then happened upon the Bungalow Beach Resort right on the beach at AMI. Whilst this is more expensive (for a 1 bed unit) it looks fantastic. Has anyone stayed at either property or have any other recommendations. We prefer something with either 2 bedrooms - or 1 bedroom plus sofa bed in living room - rather than a traditional hotel room. Thanks.
