We have returned to Tradewinds for 5 years because it is relaxing and beautiful. The staff is very helpful & make sure our visit is carefree. My husband likes to fish on the dock while I sit by the pool with friends we have made. We also enjoy walking on the beach & the beautiful sunsets.

If you like modern old style Florida cottages, this is the place for you. We stayed in the larger ones on the north- worth the money. All of the staff was great and very helpful. Loved the free chairs on the beach and the pool is beautiful. A great place for a fall getaway.

I walked down to this resort when in Bradenton in the Spring. It is much more than I had expected. We had a north cottage which has a delightful floor plan. The pool is heated and overlooks the bay. Across the street is the ocean, and just a few driveways down is a private beach with a covered area and...

What a wonderful place to stay! Anna Maria Island is near Sarasota/Bradenton. The Tradewinds Resort was a lovely and comfortable place for our visit. Beautiful and well-appointed cottages. We stayed in #35 on the Gulf side and highly recommend it. It can be configured as either a 1 or 2 bedroom apartment. It has a lovely screened in porch, porch...

We wanted to stay down by the beach while we were racing. Was a nice little cottage, Had a problem with the door, would not close completely unless dead bolt was used. It was nice for taking my grandson to the beach so he could play for a few days.

What a charming, immaculately clean, pet friendly, super comfortable, and laid back resort! We came - 20 of us & 1 dog - for a family wedding on the beach across the street. We all had individual cottages that have full kitchens and central air - & love having ceiling fans in the rooms too. The cottages are Key West...

We always choose this resort or sister resort, Tortuga Inn, for long weekend or week long getaways. Pet friendly, pool, gorgeous beach. Private grilling area, always super clean! Has it all! I would highly recommend! We will be back!

My wife an I stayed in on of the cottages during our last visit to AMI. I can't quite remember the number, it was down near the pool, towards the pier. We absolutely loved this place! The proximity to Cortez Road made walking to the shops and restaurants a nice leisurely stroll. Easy beach access was right across the street....
