A Cool Partnership with a Neighbor!

I really do believe that our office is located on the best street in Anna Maria Island!  Pine Avenue is a historic street on the island and is full of fun shops, places to eat, awesome real estate companies like Duncan Real Estate, and a fun rental shop.    Pine Avenue runs from Gulf Drive  and dead ends at the Anna Maria Island City Pier.

We have a great relationship with all of the businesses on Pine Ave and love to support them as often as we can.  Duncan Real Estate and  Beach Bums have partnered for the next few months to offer our vacation rental guests a little extra something!  During the months of September-mid November, Beach Bums will give our guest a $100 gift certificate to use during our guest vacation!  Use this generous gift certificate on bikes, paddle boards, golf carts and so many more options.  What a great added touch to offer our guest!  We thank Beach Bums for partnering with us.  It really does help all of our businesses during the slower months.

Click here to check out Beach Bums website to see what they have to offer.  I look forward to renting paddle boards and enjoying Anna Maria Island from the water!

Sunny Regards,

4th of July Parade on Anna Maria Island!

The 4th of July is just a week away and we are getting everything ready for Team Duncan’s float in the 4th of July Parade!  The parade beings at 10 AM on Coquina Beach and goes the entire length of the island until noon.  We will be sharing our float with our friends at the Anna Maria Oyster Bar.  Be on the lookout for beads, shirts, water guns, and a few surprises.  The float is so much fun to be on and trust me, we get just as wet as you do.  Make sure to have plenty of water and liquids to drink during the parade as it is the 4th of July and summer is here – which means it is hot!

 

Here are a few photos of the float from last year to get you excited about the parade this year!  Make sure to give us a big wave when you see our Beach Theme float go by you.

Memorial Day Weekend on Anna Maria Island!

The long Memorial Day weekend is always so much fun on Anna Maria Island.  If you are not enjoying the beach for the day, you are more than likely on a boat at one of 3 places – Jewfish Key, Eggmont Key or Bird Key.  All three of these places are super popular to go by boat and let me tell you, it felt like every boat  owner was out over the weekend!  I was lucky enough to go boating both Saturday and Sunday over the holiday weekend.  Everyone brought a snack to share and what they wanted to drink.  You literally can stand in the water and enjoy eating, drinking and hanging out with friends.  You always see other people you know while on one of these keys!   It really seems like the place to be not only over a holiday weekend but any weekend during the summer months! If you are not a boat owner, Anna Maria Island has plenty of marinas that offer boat rentals.  We used Bradenton Beach Marina for our rental on Sunday and it was perfect!  We picked up the boat at 12:30 and had it until 4:30.  Just the right amount of time on the water!  Plenty of seats, cup holders, covered seating, and storage!  What more could you ask for. memorial day 2017   Here is a photo from Jewfish over Memorial Day Weekend!  Hope to see you out there next time you are on the water!
