“Absolutely Fabulous!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 29, 2009

We celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary here and could not have made a better choice. The bungalow was romantic, roomy, nicely furnished and the view was breathe taking, The location is perfect. Not only is it directly on the beach, but we were able to walk most places we wanted to. It was a perfect get away spot and we plan to make this an annual stay.

We have stayed at BBR several times and will return. The room we stayed in was steps from the white sand beach. It also gave us the option of sitting on the porch or taking a few steps to take in the amazing sunsets. We can not wait to stay again at one of our favorite places.

We decided to treat ourselves for our 30th wedding anniversary and chose Bungalow Beach Resort on Anna Maria Island, FL. It is everything I'd hoped and dreamed. We stayed in 102 De Soto directly on the beach, heavenly is the word I'd use to describe this little cottage. The bed was so comfy, like sleeping on a fluffy white cloud. You also get the best sunset view from your own bed. Nice pool, which we were lucky to get to ourselves every time we went! Loved all the palm trees, flowers, beach grasses and how natural the grounds looked. We're already dreaming of a return visit!

Our bungalow was absolutely beautiful. It was warm, cozy and romantic. We had a great weekend getaway and enjoyed the beach and the restaurants in the area. Our favorites were the Beachhouse & Sandbar restaurants. We also enjoyed the Dutch Heritage Restaurant (Amish style cooking) in Sarasota - worth the drive.
