Nice bungalow-style accommodations right on the beach! The rooms are a little small (the bungalows were converted from old Army training housing), but have all the amenities -- comfy bedding, kitchenette, nice sized bathrooms, loads of charm, and very clean. We used the resort for a girls' weekend and rented the 2-bedroom bungalow, which was perfect for 3 of us.... More

We stayed at Bungalow Beach for 2 nights. The whole area reminded us of the old Florida, without the high rise condos, commercialism and congestion. The bungalows were old as well. The vaulted ceilings makes them look a little bigger than they were. For 80 year old buildings, they were in pretty good shape. They look pretty freshly painted and... More

We stayed in #115, a private pool house across the street from the beach, for our vacation but truly came over to have a party of sorts with friends and family.

We had the opportunity to rent #101, a one bedroom beach front appartment and #115, a detached isolated two bedroom house with a private pool and BBQ. This gave us a chance to experience the best of bradenton beach at our finger tips. Luckily we... More
