Good things: location across from the beach and near the Anna Maria pier and the price is good. Plenty of room for two couples (2 bedrooms, small galley kitchen, 2 bathrooms, large living room). Bad things: it was tricky flushing the toilets, every appliance was quirky or old (microwave worked occasionally, to get at the washing machine, you had to... More

4 of us stayed in the Birds Nest for 10 days in November 2012. Upon arrival there were some things that needed attended to. Told Amerigo (the owner along with Alessandra) about them and the next morning he had his repair guy right on it. Everything we told him about he took care of, right down to a new frying... More

From the moment we booked to the time we left we felt very comfortable. Sarasota Airport is within 15 miles away which was much easier to navigate to/from than Tampa. The owners were exceptionally nice and helpful with regards to suggestions to eat in town or even little things like beach info. The condo itself is very large and although... More

This is a beautiful, modern , clean, particular complex set overlooking the Gulf of Mexico within a nice garden. The beach just gorgeous. Hosts are helpful and kind. It has a nice spa area. This is the sort of place to stay if you want a week away spent lazing in the sun on beach or reading a book on... More

Frequently, when I read a review that states that the owners were nice or gave good servie, I think "What difference does that really make?". After my visit to the Bird's Nest Apartments, I found out. We booked a last minute weekend stay in January. We arrived at the apartment 2 hours early. When the owner met us, he was... More

One of the best locations in Bradenton Beach. The apartments are spacious, clean, recently updated and have an excellent view of the Gulf. Garden area is quiet and has a BBQ and hot tub. Numerous restaurants within walking distance and the free Island trolley stops nearby. Very friendly owners. We'll be returning next year.

We stayed at the Birds Nest July 1st through July 5th. The view was awesome, we were right across the street from the beach.
