About Terry Chapman
Tristan graduated from Manatee High School in Bradenton and both of our children were born here. Our careers took us away, but we love to return to Anna Maria Island whenever we can. It's our home-away-from-home. We currently live in Fort Myers, Florida, and our condo is managed by Tris's sister Terry, who lives in Bradenton.
Terry Chapman purchased this Condo in 2005
Why Terry Chapman chose Bradenton Beach
Anna Maria Island is a family-friendly place reminiscent of old Florida, with many "mom and pop" businesses and restaurants. That's because, in part, it was developed residentially before high-rises took over in many coastal areas. Over time, the island has managed to retain its quaint feel while happily accommodating a steady stream of visitors drawn to its charm, as well as its beautiful white, sandy beaches that showcase nature at its most magnificent. There's really no other place like it.
What makes this Condo unique
Our condo is practically brand new since a summer of 2018 upgrade throughout, but our favorite place to be while there is on the balcony over the bay. It is the width of the unit and is furnished for nature watching, allowing us to observe birds and the dolphin catching their dinners. Facing east, It's a perfect vantage point for relaxed evenings without the sun in your eyes and a cool beverage at hand. We think you will love it, too.

End of Summer Getaway
We really enjoyed our stay in this beautiful bay front condo. This was our first stay on the bay side and we really enjoyed the sunrises over the bay and such a quick 2 minute walk to the beautiful white sands of the gulf. This condo had everything you would need for a stress free week. Thanks so much for allowing us to stay in your beautiful condo, we will definitely be back.
Nothing makes us happier than happy visitors. So glad you enjoyed your visit and our part in it. We would be delighted to have you back any time.
Delightful Condo Experience
We have stayed at many condos over the years and we would have to say that this condo has moved to number one! The condo is space and well appointed. I loved the leather couch and rocking chair and of course the balcony was extra long and contained comfortable Adirondack chairs as well as another table with two high chairs. We spent every morning and evening enjoying the view. The bedrooms were large and the mattress in the master bedroom gave us one of the best sleeps we've had in a long time. I loved the stainless steel refrigerator and breakfast counter area and couldn't believe how well stocked the kitchen was with every type of utensil possible. There were multiple glasses, coffee mugs, wines glasses, bowls, plates etc. everywhere.. Actually I felt guilty not cooking with so much available to do so. What really blew me away was how the unit came stocked with kleenex, toilet paper, soap, shampoo, sandwich bags, foil, wax paper, spices, paper toweling and garbage bags. Very well stocked and much appreciated. The location of the unit is perfect not only with where it is located on the island but that you have the choice of the intercostal view and a few steps away the beautiful gulf waters and gorgeous sunsets. We highly recommend this unit and can't speak enough about how communicative and helpful Terry was to make our trip the best it could possibly be. We will most certainly return (if we can find a week on the condo calendar that is not already booked!)
We loved the location of the property. I watched the sunrise over the bay simply by stepping out on the balcony in my pj's. The condo was very clean and comfortable and had everything we needed to enjoy our stay. Terry was great to suggest some places we shouldn't miss when we asked. Her recommendations were excellent. Locals we encountered were all so helpful. I'm one to ask, what's your favorite shop or local restaurant etc. We hope to return!
Beautiful Clean Beach Condo
We very much enjoyed our stay. The condo was incredibly beautiful and clean! We will be back!
Thank you so much. We love having happy guests!
In my opinion, you can't get a better location!
Our trip went smoothly and amazingly. With 4 small kids, that's a lot to say! Communication with Terry before and during our trip was outstanding. The check in and check out process was great and the location of the condo was amazing. I loved being able to sit out on the deck and stare out at the bay looking for dolphins. The kids are already begging us to book again next year!
Thanks so much for the kind words! You were such great guests, no one would have guessed there had been four children at the condo. You are most welcome back any time!
Everything you could possibly want for a relaxing vacation is here in this condo. It was just renovated and updated. Kitchen has new appliances—-full-sized refrigerator—-plenty of counter space, and storage cabinets. Well-stocked with dishes, utensils, and small appliances. Comfortable beds with new furniture. The views from the balcony are spectacular! The skyline bridge to St. Petersburg is visible to the left; Sarasota can be seen in the opposite direction. The high-chairs and tables on the balcony allow for a view of the Skyline bridge to the left, and Sarasota to the right. The owner also provides a telescope for close-up views of the dolphins and bird-life. Great condo, Highly recommend,
Great guests who we are always delighted to accommodate!
