Tradewinds Beach Resort

Anna Maria Island is a Beautiful place to visit and one of the most relaxing places I have ever stayed. If you don't want to pay the high $$ to stay at the Outer Banks during the summer, try Anna Maria Island anytime! You won't find the chain restaurants or stores here, but you can cross the bridge to Bradenton if you are looking for that. The natives are friendly, the restaurants are down-to-earth, the beaches are WONDERFUL and free! You can walk around the entire island if you want! Best of all, you can find a place like Tradewinds to stay that isn't overpriced & offers you a full kitchen, bath, bed, livingroom-with-pullout-couch, cable, porch, outdoor grilling, & a pool !!!!!! Just cross the street to access to the beach!!!! Beats the hotels Hands-Down!!!! Make sure to take in the local restaurants (cash only, please) and go North for the sand dollars. Don't forget to get a pizza at Oma's Pizza; best darned pizza on the planet!!! As General MacArthur said, "I shall return"!!

Room Tip: Check the website for a map. All cottages are great, but the ones towards the east are quieter...

We had a wonderful week on Anna Maria island at the Tradewinds Feb 8 to the 16th, 2013. Our flight came in late. I called the resort . Keys were in the drop box. The staff was very courteous; our condo was clean and neat. Only inconvenience no coffee filters and a few things like salt and pepper. Coming in late and having to find a grocery store was a little hassle at night.

Over all stay...Great! We would stay again!

Room Tip: We stayed in number 5. Convenient .. Right across from the office and laundry.

We have stayed with the tradewind family for 8 years. Cottage 18 for two years & cottage 20 for 6 years. We enjoy the pool and these two cottages are just steps away for the heated, clean pool. I also enjoy " beach walk", the beach is just across Gulf drive a short walk from the tradewind office. The staff is always ready to help and they work faithfully to keep everything clean. The setting of the "Old Florida cottages" is eye pleasing, Sarasota Bay to the East and the Gulf of Mexico to the west. Dolfin play both places.

My husband and I were looking for a peacefulwinter get away with our little cat and we found it!
We found it at Tradewinds Beach Resort in Bradenton Beach, FL. We have stayed at many
places that allow an animal but were disappointed either because the place was too old or
too dirty. Not so at Tradewinds. There are cottages that are pet friendly and some that are not. All these cottages are well maintained, the staff is so friendly and helpful, and the Bay is right behind their swimming pool. The Gulf of Mexico is just across a 2-lane street. So EZ to get to, and Tradewinds provide umbrellas and chairs are already at the beach. Nice clean, not crowded beach. Just a delightful visit.

Room Tip: The closet is bigger in the cabins on the North side.

This was our second year staying at the Tradewinds Resort. We love the cottages and stayed in one of the north cottages which was a little bigger than the one we stayed in last year. The extra square footage made a difference.These cottages are just what we are looking for. Clean, up to date, but with a bit of the old Florida charm. We loved the walk in closet, so we could store all our stuff out of sight. Every morning we took our walk on the beach The heated swiming pool was just what we needed in late afternoon. The free trolly was a great part of the experience. We almost newer took the car out during the entire week we were there. This is a well run place. We have already scheduled the same cavin for next year.

We stayed in cottage #5 or 6 (can't remember now.) The front of the cottage was lush with plants and flowers. Our one bedroom cottage was very nice and very clean. They have a wonderful dock on the bay that we visited to see fish and one evening a dolphin! The pool was wonderfully heated and made our visiting grandchildren very happy! The beach is across the street but is no problem to get to. The chairs, umbrellas, and towels are provided. A lovely, quaint old Florida feel. Just what we were looking for. Would love to stay for a month or so in the winter. The office staff was wonderful to help us with all our questions. A great winter getaway.

We stayed in unit #30 for one night. For some reason, I was expecting individual "cottages", but the set up is more like trailers with 2 apartments per trailer. However, the unit was clean and had everything we needed. Crossing the busy street to get the beach was tricky with two kids, but not terrible since traffic would stop for people crossing.

The pool was nice, and the pier in the back of the property was very peaceful.

The two people we encountered at the desk were both very, very friendly & helpful.

The trolley stop is right across the street, and we took it on a tour around the island. Pretty cool.
