“Best Beach Getaway By Far”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2014

We have stayed at the Tradewinds Beach Resort ("TBR") (and at one of its sister properties) several times. TBR has delightful cottages which are clean, functionally appointed, and have full kitchens. The property has outdoor grills, picnic tables, a pool, and a bayside dock. The gulf is across the street. The property is conveniently located to food shopping areas, restaurants, and bars. It is by far the nicest place we have stayed at in the area and the rates are very reasonable.

My boyfriend, Handsome Harry, had never been to Anna Maria Island so at the very last minute, called Tradewinds and was able to book a room for the next day.......a 55th birthday adventure for him. The girl that I spoke with, was very accommodating and even gave us a deal being a Florida resident!!

We took the scenic way from Bonita through St. Armand's Circle, through Longboat Key....very nice drive. We stayed in a cute cottage, which was very spacious, even with the 2 dogs in tow!! The room was nicely furnished and a fully equipped kitchen. I loved the crown molding throughout the cottage, even in the bathroom!!! Super clean room!! The tile was a bit slippery though.....

Location perfect!! Explored up to Anna Maria Island and Bridge street area!! Lovely island!! Will be back again!!

Room Tip: All rooms are cottages...........please let them know if you are travelling with your four-legged fr...

My husband & I have stayed at Tradewinds Beach Resort 2 times now & both times have be great! The rooms are very clean & well stocked for all our needs. We also love that they are a pet friendly resort, pets must be well behaved but are allowed & that's wonderful for people who love to travel with their furry family members. We highly recommend Tradewinds & are already planning our next visit.

At the end of every school year, our group of 4 teachers celebrate with a trip to the beach. We have been to many places but this is our favorite. Everything from the check-in to the cleanliness of the rooms was perfect. We stayed in the 2 bedroom Gulf Drive cottage and loved the screened porch for our morning coffee. We'll be back!

I have never been a person to write a review, but this place is worth my time to write one.
I also am one who never read reviews, but I did read one on this property. I have to tell you the reviews were fabulous , so I thought we would give them a try and I'm glad we did. I was impressed with the cleanliness, the staff and the property. We are going again over the 4th of July, making reservations before we ever left the property. I'm sure this is where we will stay every time we visit. I hope if your planning a visit, you give it a try you will not be disappointed.

This was my 3rd stay. Units are clean, nicely decorated with all the amenities. Really appreciate the coffee, paper towels, garbage bags being furnished. Furnishing beach towels and umbrella is really an advantage for air travelers. Just love the cozy atmosphere with the beautiful landscaping. Staff very friendly and helpful recommendations for dining and sight seeing. Would recommend furnishing larger and more sturdy umbrellas for beach. Highly recommend staying here.

Two years ago we spent 1 week in Anna Marie. We had such a nice laid back time we opted to try 2 weeks this time. Small unit, very clean, all utensils to cook, extremely efficient .My Sister - in - law came for a wk. That worked out well. Nice Pool, Great beach with comfortable lounge chairs, grocery nearby, free bus , close to town center. Would do again.

Room Tip: We picked a unit close to the pool area.
