Very nice property

By: Trip Date: 2021-08-14
Nice large home. Limited paper towels and toilet paper so if you're going to be there a week, you may want to stock up. Bed linens are a little smaller than comfortable but plenty of extra blankets in the closets. Watch out for the glassed in shower in the back bathroom by the pool as the shower head WILL squirt out of the door. Dock is great as well as the fish cleaning station that really could be re-built. All in all, pretty comfortable. Plenty of room in the garage for extra storage. Communication with property management was spot on great.

Great boating vacation

By: Trip Date: 2021-07-31
The house was nice and clean. Boating to and from the house was easy with lots of dolphins to watch. It was nice to refresh in the pool after a day out on the beaches. The management company was easy to work with. An overall great vacation.

Great Location! Loved the Pool!

By: Trip Date: 2021-06-09
We had a great stay in June. The location was convenient and the pool was great. Nice home with plenty of space for our family of 5.

Great Stay at Sailor's Dream

By: Trip Date: 2021-03-25
Stayed 9 nights at Sailor's Dream and had a great experience. House was clean and had all necessary items in the kitchen. Location was great as well, as it's one of the closest neighborhoods to the beach bridge on Cortez. Florida Dreams Realty of AMI was also great. Someone stopped by the house on the first day to check on us and to make sure everything was ok. Pool was clean and having a dock in the backyard was perfect and allowed us to rent a pontoon boat for multiple days. Would definitely rent again if back in the Bradenton area.

Comforts of Home.

By: Trip Date: 2021-02-06
We had a very relaxing time. Our car broke down however the home was located close to everything we managed very well with out transportation for 3 weeks. Loved the location and the amenities. We will be back next year.

Great house, great location!

By: Trip Date: 2020-11-09
House has a great layout, everyone has their own bathroom and privacy! We loved the dock although Hurricane Eta came thru and we were unable to bring our boat. We look forward to renting this property again!

Sailors Dream in October

By: Trip Date: 2020-10-03
The property is located in a very nice quiet subdivision. The house has plenty of space, 3 bathrooms, 3 bedrooms. The dock off the back was easy accessible. Wish there was an extra roll of toilet paper and a few garbage bags for use. 2 car garage has a covered car inside. Bikes to rent were placed right in front of front door which made unloading the car a little tricky.

Great location great outdoor space easy access to canals. Close to many outdoor activities shops restaurants. Close proximity to many beaches.


By: Trip Date: 2020-06-14
Our family truly enjoyed our stay at the Sailors Dream.
The trash is a bit confusing. Just make sure you get it out early on the day it is to be picked up. When speaking the the rental company, they were super nice. We would definitely stay here again.

House is very pleasant and we enjoyed our stay

Peaceful paradise

By: Trip Date: 2019-09-21
The home is nice. It is right on a canal. The pool is large and very clean. There is a screened porch which keeps the bugs out. The home is in a very quiet neighborhood. The managing company is great. We had some issues and all but one was rectified before we left. I would like to stay here again. I would like a tv in the guest bedroom and the 2 guest bedrooms the beds are very low. I also think there should be a ramp or step from the house leading to the pool, it is quite a steep drop. I would recommend grab bars in the bathrooms.

Perfekt holyday

Arrival and departure were easy.
All in all, an uncomplicated stay.
A nice hause and area

Sailors Dream ,wonderful holiday

By: Trip Date: 2019-06-23
We have stayed in the Bradenton area many many times both in Bradenton and actually on Anna Maria Island.The location of the property is just right for easy access to Anna Maria Island and all it has to offer.Also you can get to Bradenton center in minutes. Eating places on your doorstep. Go to the beaches in 5 mins to spend the day or watch the sunsets.
We had a few days just staying around the pool and on the quay.Saw Manatees playing in the water by the quay,wonderful. One day there were two adults and another time a group of 4 or 5 including a calf if that is the correct term playing about feeding and messing around.
The island is so laid back and everyone is so friendly.Called at Peaches for breakfast and didnt need anything to eat until late evening,so good,the place the locals go
We try to call at places we have not tried before each time we go but also are drawn back to favourities. So relaxing we always want to go back as soon as we can,this is our 10th visit to this corner of paradise
Sailors Dream was very good and we loved the property,its location and the knowledge that if we needed any help or we had questions the letting office was easily contacted or we could call in .
A truly wonderful holiday where there was plenty to do (Clearwater,and attractions 25 mins away or Disney World and Orlando only 90 mins away if you want to liven things up) and many many more,or just stay local and chill many more places not named but get yourself down there and have fun finding out.
Only thing we found that for some reason one bedroom had some dog hairs on the floor and on the bed cover.We did not use this room so therefore did not ask for it to be cleaned but I am sure if needed it would have been sorted.There was a question that we asked regarding the front door and this was sorted within 5 minutes.Apart from this the place was super clean and had all we could ever need in it.GREAT
WE will be back as soon as we can

Florida Joy

We are native Floridians looking for a place to relax,Sailor's Dream was perfect for that. The house lay-out was just what we like, looking forward to staying again with you Anne Wales

More than a Sailor's Dream

By: Trip Date: 2019-04-25
We spent wonderful 10 days in this spacious comfortable villa in quiet and safe surroundings. the villa was well equipped and clean. The big heated pool invited us to our daily swims. There is only a short drive to the beaches. We preferred Coquina Beach which offered all the amenities like restaurant, changing cabins, restrooms, and free parking.

Great stay

My clients enjoyed their stay at Sailors Dream and hope to return again next year.

Great location, beautiful waterfront home and experience!

By: Trip Date: 2018-05-03
Located near both Anna Maria Island, Longboat Key and beaches, we brought our 24' foot deck boat and enjoyed visiting some of the areas clearest water! JewFish Island is nearby and features deep enough water to pull your boat up to, then hop off into a foot and a half deep, clear sparkling water! Nearby visit a great old Florida style restaurant called Mar Vista! The home was as described, the pool was clean and perfect for a dip after being out on the water. We will certainly keep this property and location in mind for our future vacation plans.

Lovely Hone with Great Layout

By: Trip Date: 2018-04-13
We loved this home. The home has a wonderful layout, good central location, on a canal, a swimming pool, wifi, tv's., and garage. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Awesome vacation stay!

By: Trip Date: 2017-06-30
We had a great time at this vacation home, the house is located in a good location by water and by car. This home is great for families and couples, as all the bedrooms are separated with individual bathrooms, everyone had plenty of space. The Bradenton/Anna Maria area is laid back in an old Key West sort of way, while having all the amenities at your fingertips. We loved seeing manatees, dolphins, and sea turtles, as well as the tarpon. I would highly recommend this rental. If I had a complaint it would be the lack of room darkening curtains in the master bedroom, the light across the canal shines in window all night, and I would agree with other guests that bar stools would make a nice addition in the kitchen for families who cook together. All in all I would rate this rental at the top of my list. The home was in immaculate condition as well as the yard and pool. Florida Dreams Realty was easy to work with and highly efficient. Hope to visit again soon!

A wonderful home

By: Trip Date: 2017-06-15
We were delighted withe rental, the house was very comfortable and clean. The bedrooms and living areas was comfortable. The pool area was excellent and
dock area. The location was a short drive from Anna Maria island and also a short drive from grocery shopping. We would have no problem recommending this property and look forward to coming back again. An abundance of restaurants and cafes a short drive. Cortez clam factory is a walking distance.

Amazing vacation home

By: Trip Date: 2017-04-09
We just returned from a one week stay at Sailors Dream. I spend endless hours searching for the perfect vacation home for our trip and finally decided on Sailors Dream. Believe me I was not disappointed. From the moment I opened the front to to the moment we closed it a week later we were 100% delights with our choice. The home is very tastefully decorated and immaculately clean. The beds were very comfortable and the kitchen is fully equipped. The pool was amazing. The peace and quiet was exactly what we expected. The rental agency was really great to deal with. I would highly recommend this rental to anyone.

Sailor's Dream is a wonderful home for your next vacation. The home is comfortable, convenient and spotless. A quick ride to the beaches and also convenient to restaurants and shopping. The solar heated pool was perfect. We highly recommend Sailor's Dream!

The rental was all that the online description advertised. We enjoyed our time there. Only thing missing was sports channels on the TV.

Great Location

By: Trip Date: 2016-10-22
You won't go wrong with this rental. Very good location to beach, restaurants and shopping. Pool was clean and warm enough for the time of year we vacationed. Neighborhood was very quiet. It was nice to be able to park in the garage. The memory foam mattresses were very comfortable and we actually emailed the rental company to obtain the brand of mattress for purchase at our home. Best nights of sleep we have had in a long time. Only negatives were the living room furniture was very uncomfortable and even though the beds were very comfortable, they were too low to the ground for anyone with a disability. Very nice kitchen and bar except there were no bar stools. That would have been a plus although we ate outside at the pool for most of our stay at home meals. Overall, very satisfied with this rental and might possibly stay again when visiting this area.

Our Third Stay at Sailors Dream

By: Trip Date: 2016-07-09
We love the house, the area, and especially the boating.

Great Vacation

By: Trip Date: 2016-06-18
Cathy and I come yearly to Anna Marie/Longboat Key and this was one of the best places we've stayed at. The only negatives were the ice maker didn't work in the fridge and the king bed was low and memory foam which took a little getting use to. Would have been better in our opinion with a higher platform. Neither of these negatives were that bad. The positives were many. We loved the location and had plenty of room for our boat & trailer(20'Hurricane Sport Deck) with a big turn around cul-de-sac at the end of the street. The dock had everything needed and the pool was great. The use of the garage was a BIG plus and the fact it was all ground level was tremendous. The last couple of years we loved where we stayed with great dock and location but it was a second story house and didn't want the stairs again. Property was very clean and all amenities were as advertised except ice maker in fridge. Working with Florida Dreams Realty was easy and they were very helpful and easy to work with.

Very Satisfied

By: Trip Date: 2016-06-10
We enjoyed the stay and will return. The dock is very nice for boat access. Needs a third TV in one of the bedrooms

Nice place

By: Trip Date: 2016-01-02
Beds were a awful. No support or box springs very low to the ground. This is the only negative thing I can say about the property.

Sailors Dream is Fantastic

By: Trip Date: 2015-12-19
This is our second time staying here. We love the property, the location, and the property management. The house was spotless when we arrived. Florida Dream Homes makes the whole arrival and departure process seamless, and the welcome information is very helpful.
We will definitely be back next summer.

Very Nice Rental

By: Trip Date: 2015-07-26
Everything was as described. Management company was responsive and the house was in great shape.


By: Trip Date: 2015-06-13
What a great location! We wanted to be on the island, but booked too late. But this house was totally worth it! MUCH more space than if we would have rented on the island. It was clean, had everything we needed, and next time we are there we are going to rent a boat! The kids loved fishing off the dock. The drive to the island took about 5 minutes. Parking was fine on Coquina beach. So great. We are coming back.

Spring Break at Sailor's Dream

By: Trip Date: 2015-04-04
Fantastic stay at Sailor's Dream for our family. The home had everything we needed and was spotless. Florida Dreams representatives were very helpful and friendly. Very nice neighborhood, close to all the important things. The pool was perfect for our kids and loved the short drive to Anna Maria Island. Coquina Beach is absolutely beautiful. Thank you so much!

Wonderful setting for family vacation!!!

By: Trip Date: 2015-03-28
By far, our most positive vacation rental experience! Spent family spring break in the Bradenton area. Family of 4 with kids ages 17 and 12. Parents were undecided on the trip but decided to come along at the last minute. Plenty of room for 4 adults and two kids. The house was immaculate and well prepared for vacationers. We enjoyed daily meals in the well-equipped kitchen. Planned on several day trips throughout the week, but we found the private swimming pool so refreshing and relaxing that we hardly ever left. The location was perfect with a short drive to Bradenton Beach and many restaurants/stores and golf courses. Private, residential street was very quiet and peaceful. We even had a daily visit from a manatee family just off of the boat dock!
As we drove away, the unanimous vote was for a return visit next year. We truly could not have been happier with the home and the setting.
