“Great Beach Escape”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 10, 2014

My daughter and I stayed in cabin #7 for a long weekend and really enjoyed it !! The cabin was well equipped with everything you could need. The property was beautiful, quiet and relaxing. It was great that we could bring our dog with us. The beach was right across the street with chairs. The office had umbrellas and beach towels so we did not have to bring our own. There was a beautiful dock on the bay side where we had some manatee sightings. Convenient trolley stops. The staff were very friendly and helpful. We did not want housekeeping because of our dog, but the staff left us a bag of fresh towels and goodies each day on our porch. Parking right outside our cabin and small lawn out front was great!

Room Tip: #7 was very clean and comfortable. Small porch out front and BBQ area on the right side between 6 a...

Tradewinds was beyond my expectations. I needed a pet friendly hotel but am very leary of a lot of them. The rooms were very clean and the grounds beautifully manicured. I love the fact there is no carpet in the cottages. I appreciated the daily housekeeping service with fresh towels and whatever we needed. The staff was very friendly. My family will make Tradewinds Resort our island destination every time we visit Anna Maria.

We booked a one bedroom apt overlooking the bay and it was outstanding. We were looking for a quick 2 night get away that was by the beach and not too fancy. We could have stayed a lot longer! I was pleasantly surprised at how clean and well appointed our unit was. We were walking distance to the beach and multiple restaurants. The staff was helpful and friendly. We packed a lot of relaxation into those two days.

Room Tip: Many units are pet friendly but beware because the beaches nearby do not allow dogs.

Cottage style accommodation was perfect for the 4 of us. King bed in the bedroom, queen sofa bed in the living room. Fully equipped kitchen for cooking, or plenty of restaurants for eating out. The beach is across the road and a nice pool area in the grounds. Very clean with friendly staff. Adorable Island with so many things to do. We looked online as soon as we got home to book another visit.

Four of us stayed in cottage #2 for a few days in March 2014 before going to Disney. We have only good things to say about this wonderful property with beach on one side and bay on the other. Very clean, beautifully landscaped, charmingly decorated rooms, plenty of space for two couples, flat screen TV in both LR and BR, delightful eat-in kitchen, tiny porch to sit outside or at the pool and fishing dock for beautiful views. Short walk to the beach entrance at their sister property Tortuga. Trolley stop right out front, can walk to town for shopping and restaurants. Took in a Pirates baseball game, enjoyed strolling around the Coquina Bay Walk preserve on Leffis key. Would go back in a minute!

Room Tip: Our side had the larger rooms 1-20.

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...
