Sandcastle Condominium Unit # 6
200 Gulf Dr. South Unit # 6
Bradenton Beach, FL 34217
The Direct Beachfront has spectacular million dollar views out over the Gulf of Mexico. This really beautiful, direct beachfront condo has 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and directly overlooks the crystal blue waters that stretch out to the horizon. In the mornings enjoy that first cup of coffee on the balcony to the sound of the Gulf gently lapping on the edge of the sands and in the evenings sip a cocktail and watch our spectacular Florida sunsets light up the sky over the water as the sun slips down over the horizon.
As well as having the perfect serenely beautiful beachfront location, Direct Beachfront is really conveniently located for trying out several of our delicious ice-cream parlors! Also within a few minutes' walk from your front door there are several breakfast places to visit, a crepe restaurant that is popular with visitors and locals alike and a pizzeria which consistently produces some of the best in town. If you don't want to drive to the local grocery store five minutes away, just walk across to the 7 Eleven convenience store for the basics. Life here is so easy!
Nestled right on the edge of seven glorious miles of white sugar sand beaches at the north end of the idyllic Coquina Beach area of Anna Maria Island, this amazing condo will sleep up to eight comfortably. From the living area and the balcony you can watch dolphins frolicking in the azure seas of the Gulf of Mexico and sailboats drifting by on the horizon. Swim in the heated pool, step straight on to the sands or stroll the beaches looking for sand dollars and seashells. This is a beach lover's heaven.
The decor reflects the colors of the Gulf of Mexico; aquamarine and crystal blue accented with natural elements of ivory, cream, wheat and white and complimented by island style southern living furnishings. Large glass sliders lead out on to the balcony, perfect for checking out the beach and watching Florida's spectacular sunsets as the sun slips gently down over the Gulf, lighting up the sky with red and gold. For relaxing moments, entertainment goes hand in hand with technology: HD LCD TV and stereo, with a TV in every room. Keep in touch with family, friends and business with high-speed wireless Internet. If you do not have your laptop, an iMac computer and printer are available for renters to use. You also have the benefit of long distance to USA, Canada, and all USA territories (Puerto Rico, etc.)
Just across the street in the island's historic Bridge Street, where you will discover an interesting mix of cute small shops and some great restaurants. At the end of Bridge Street are the pretty Bradenton Beach clock tower and a long wooden pier that extends out into the waters of the bay. If you enjoy fishing it is a great spot to cast a rod over into the water to catch your lunch or just stroll out to watch sailboats and cruisers meandering by. Direct Beachfront is close to Bradenton Beach Marina, so if you want to rent a boat, or find a mooring, it is just a short walk away.
Sleeps 2 - 8 people maximum. No extra persons allowed and absolutely no pets allowed.
Now enjoy an even more incredible beach vacation. Photos were made before the multimillion-dollar beach expansion that widened the gorgeous beach approximately 70%!

Great location and lovely condo! Good location for walking to eateries and shops. The condo is located right off the round-about which made for easy entering and exiting. The views from the master bedroom and balcony never disappointed. The sunsets were very photo worthy! If I have any criticism at all it is the fact only 1 trash bag is provided. For a condo that accommodates 8 people (which we had) we thought leaving at least 2 trash bags would be considerate. Just a small matter and it didn’t stop us from having a terrific time. For the next vacationers who rent this property, there were beach towels and hair dryers at the time of our stay. Very helpful info if you’re flying 🙂 I would definitely recommend Direct Beach Front. That was our third visit to Anna Maria Island but certainly will not be our last. Thanks for sharing this beautiful condo with us.

The Direct Beach Front property was the perfect place for our needs. Lovely sunsets, quick trip to the beach, safe entrance to the pool for small children, parking in the shade and ice cream and delicious pizza near by.
Hi R G, thank you for the awesome review ~ we’re so glad you guys enjoyed your time at Direct Beach Front! We’re happy you all got to enjoy the beautiful sunsets, the pool area, and the location being so close to the beach. That’s great to hear that you were able to take advantage of the location and experience the local shops and eateries. We hope to have you all back soon!

We really enjoyed our 5th summer vacation to Anna Maria Island and our second time to stay in this condo. We would love to stay in this condo everytime we visit the island! Our favorite part is being able to walk everywhere. Thanks for letting us stay here again!! – Suzanne, Victor, Molly, and Adam

The whole family enjoyed this apartment. The view outside the balcony as amazing and everyday, all 4 of us enjoyed the stunning sunset. The rooms were spacious and each bed was comfy, which allowed us to have enough sleep so we could all enjoy the next day of this brilliant holiday! The pool was cold for a day as the heater wasn’t working but after-wards, it was fixed. But except for that everything was fabulous!

We had an awesome week in Anna Maria Island! We loved the condo, it was perfect. The location was the best, we didn’t have to drive anywhere. We walked over to the beach house three times to eat, it was easy and the was good. Also having Joe’s ice cream across the street was the best thing ever! Next year we will definitely look to stay in this condo again, it was comfortable and the decor was very cute. Thanks

We had a wonderful time. The condo was very comfortable and we loved listening to the waves and watching the dolphins. Loved the screened porch. The location was great for walking around to the shops and the Sunday Bazaar. We picked a great time to come to Bradenton Beach! Thank you to the owners for making this condo available. We would love to come back again! Had a great time! ,, Marie, Vickie, and Judy “girls trip” from Michigan 🙂

LOVED this condo!! We could no get any closer to the beach! So beautiful to sit on the patio and enjoy coffee. Great to wake up to the view. Beautifully decorated and very comfortable. We sat on the beach all day and enjoyed the sunsets every night. We will definitely recommend this condo to our friends, and we will be back! 🙂 Thank you to the owners for this beautiful condo and making it available to us.
