“A Quick Visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2013

Meredith and I were in Florida this week for the Orlando Hamcation and went out of our way to come back to Bungalow Beach for another visit. This time we stayed in Seagull 105 and enjoyed the great ocean view. Our unit was clean and well-appointed. When we locked our key in the room, Joann was extremely helpful and provided great service. The landscaping is outstanding especially the sheltered patio area with a fire pit and grills, just steps away from your front door. Our only regret was not being able to stay longer! Dave Tipple

We had a wonderful restful vacation at the Bungalow Beach Resort. The Bungalow was beautiful, the service was exceptional, and the beach views were breathtaking! We will go back again! Our room was 101 Coquina it sits right on the beach. Every morning we watched the sun rise from our back porch and every evening we watched it set. My wife enjoyed shopping at the quaint shops in the area. There were also many great restaurants. We would highly recommend the Bungalow Beach Resort on Bradenton Beach Florida.

I chose this property primarily due to the reviews on Tripadvisor, so I should say thanks for those and write one of my own. Two good OLD friends from Ohio on a road trip loved our stay in the "Starfish", a 2 bedroom, 2 bath bungalow that was just perfect for us. The decor was girly chic, comfortable and cozy. We were fortunate to have good weather in mid-January while also enjoying off season rates and readily available restaurants. The lounge chairs on the beach were greatly enjoyed and we were looked after quite well by Gayle and her staff. Can't wait to return to AMI and another Bungalow stay!!

Room Tip: Just look at the diagram and pick the one that best suits. We stayed in the Starfish, I believe the...

I have been going to this wonderful place for over 10 years at all different times of the year...summer, winter and fall.It is always just nice to be there... It is the most peacefull and relaxing place around. I have tried to find some other place in the area to go to and can not find a place even close to match it. To sit on your porch to just enjoy the the white sands and the beauitful beach. My wife and I renewed our vows at sunset, The sunset here are just breathtaking . The beds are soft and inviting. Rooms clean and well taken care of. Do you get the hint we love this place??? Because we do......

My fiance and I really enjoyed our 3 night stay and this cozy bungalow resort on Bradenton Beach. The rooms are immaculate with beautiful bedding and decor. The beach front was gorgeous! My only wish was that the weather was warmer so I could have been more inclined to enjoy the courtyard and pool. The owner Gayle was very sweet and accommodating.

Room Tip: The rooms closer to the road are a little loud during morning traffic.

We stayed at the Bungalow Beach Resort for 2 nights in summer 2012. We booked the "Seagull", a golf front studio with the terrace opening up to the waterfront and with direct access to the beach. The interiour was very neat and we really felt away from it all. The resort is a little off the road and is perfect for relaxing. You don´t even need to see a person if you don´t want to. The staff was very helpful and gave us great advise on loactions for eating out and having breakfast. The rates very not the cheapest although it was off-season, but it´s worth the money. Would stay there again.

Room Tip: You should spend the extra money for a seafront room.

We stayed 2 nights in early December 2012. What a great spot. Not fancy or pretentious, just relaxing and wonderful. View/Room...amazing. Gayle the owner could not have been nicer. We were able to walk down the beach to dinner and breakfast spots. We did a fire in the firepit both nights...fun. Had the best restaurant dinner of my life about 5 min away at Beach Bistro. Only suggestion is a firmer mattress (rm 105)..but otherwise perfect! We'll be back for sure!

Room Tip: opt for the beachfront rooms. Awesome
