Sandcastle Beach and Sandcastle Lighthouse Duplex -- 1955 Gulf Drive North


Free High Speed Wireless RoadRunner Internet!!


The Sandcastle offers two spacious private residences in one building, just across the street from the crystal blue waters of the Gulf of Mexico and close to all the conveniences. Centrally located on Anna Maria Island, the Sandcastle is not too far from anything on the island!   

Choose one or both of the 3 bedroom/2 bath residences located in Bradenton Beach (the Key West-y part of the island) which is the southern part of 7 mile long Anna Maria Island on the west coast of Florida.  Easy on and off the island by either of the 2 bridges (you're between them) connects you to the mainland of Bradenton.  Come and enjoy the year-round temperate climate, warm tropical breezes, white sand beaches, Caribbean-like blue/green waters, and island lifestyle! The Tampa airport is 1 hour away, Sarasota/Bradenton airport is 30 minutes away, and the Orlando theme parks are just 1-1/2 hours away.

This modern duplex home has been decorated with granite countertops, imported ceramic tile throughout, Hunter ceiling fans, high speed wireless internet, and a designer's touch.

Your home has been beautifully furnished and well equipped for your every convenience.  Each three bedroom, two bath home will accommodate eight people comfortably, making this the perfect set-up for families wishing to travel together or that family reunion you've been planning.  This duplex has also been used very effectively for a business seminar in residence and for a professional retreat.

The master bedroom is furnished with a king bed, bathroom, and cable TV/DVD player, with the 3rd floor master having a view of the gulf waters.  The second bedroom has a queen bed and cable TV.  The third bedroom has a twin bed, and a twin over full bunk bed, as well as cable TV.   All three rooms have large closets.  Full-sized washer and dryer for each level.  Each floor has a large balcony with a gorgeous gulfview!

Whether you want to go parasailing, land the biggest fish at a local pier or by charter boat, shop till you drop at a nearby outlet mall or tony St. Armand's Circle, test your kayaking skills in the Gulf of Mexico, or just relax, kick back, and take it easy, this beautiful property provides you with all the comforts of home. 

Soak up some sun at home or walk just across the street  (public beach access is just a half block away) to a pristine sandy beach and sink your toes in the white soft sand.   You can take the wonderful trolley from a nearby stop and tour the island for free!

After a day at the beach, you can relax on your large shaded balcony, have a barbecue in the yard or go to a fabulous local restaurant, no fast food on the island!
