I did a lot of searching online to find a nice rental on Anna Maria Island for a reasonable price. We ended up at Tradewinds (Unit 21 facing the bay) and were very happy with everything about the place. If it's an option for you, I highly recommend paying the extra to stay in one of the bayside units -... More

My wife and I stayed a week at this charming low key Florida resort. It was February 2014 and the weather was sunny but a little cool...high 60s low 70s. The cottages were clean, the staff very friendly and helpful, (especially Mason), and the heated pool was very welcome. The cottages were mostly single story and we felt like we... More

We were pleasantly surprised how much we liked staying at Tradewinds. The grounds were excellently maintained, beautiful vegetation. The resort amenities met all our needs. Definitely would stay again.

This cottaqe-like resort was very nice because it was very homey. The resort has about 30 1 bedroom, kitchen/living room cottages arranged along a street with a heated pool at the end over lodking the Sound. Many of the people who rent these units have been coming back for years which points up the quality of the resort. We enjoy... More

This was our second time staying on Anna Maria Island but our first time traveling to the island with our dog, Gracie. Tradewinds was wonderful place to stay. Gracie felt right at home.....and so did we. Our weather wasn't the greatest......never got to use the pool or even see a sunset, but our cottage (#8) was large enough that we... More

Again this resort has a community of caring staff...excellent accommodations and location. As a plus the landscaping and maintenance of the units is exceptional...we stay for 2 months and feel like we are "home".

This was our second time on Anna Maria Island. The Tradewinds Resort was a lovely surprise. Only steps from Unit 13 and crossing Gulf Drive is the beautiful Gulf sands and a private beach. Steps from that point is found small restaurants and gift shops. If that isn't your idea of your vacation, you can enjoy the pool on the... More

Husband & I stayed here just prior to Christmas Day and mid-February 2014 and as usual, LOVED IT!!! Our units were extremely clean and well appointed. Totally comfortable, bright and airy. We've stayed at Tradewinds numerous times and have ALWAYS had a wonderful time. Management is most accommodating and gracious. We recommend Tradewinds to all who want a relaxed vacation... More

Whenever I need to "opt-out," catch-up on back issues of magazines I love, or "tend my own garden," I retreat to the Tradewinds. Situated between the beach and the bay, I find no better place to read or contemplate. The North cottages are bathed in sunlight during the day, the evenings are quiet and often cooled with bay to beach... More

Old Florida for sure. We stayed three days and enjoyed our little cottage. It had all amenities, was clean and comfortable. Liked the idea of parking right in front of the unit. Pets are welcome but signs make it clear you should walk off the property. We were surprised that there was very little beach access. One had to walk... More
