We absolutely loved Pirates Cove! It was our first stay in Bradenton, my sister and husband have been coming for years and staying close by. They spent half their time with us at the awesome pool. Walk to the beach was very short. Trolly stop right down the street. The place was very clean, perfect size. We were very comfortable. Plan on returning next year

I rented out this charming property for a week. The house was bigger than I excepted, which was a pleasant surprise. The backyard and pool area is larger than the pictures let on. It was perfect for myself and teenager. The walk to the beach is about a block and a half, less than 5 minutes to have your feet in the waves. There was an issue with the plumbing unfortunately. I called vacasa and they were able to get a plumber to the house on a Saturday night as soon as possible. The customer service was great, especially the employees on the island. Great communication and they kept me updated on status of the plumber. Whenever I come back to AMI, I would love to book this property again with this company.

This cottage was adorable, immaculate, and so conveniently located. It was so nice to get up in the morning and swim in a private pool. I can’t stand cold water and this pool is heated to a nice temperature. The cottage was clean and well appointed, everything I needed was in the kitchen. We live in Florida, but we have to drive to the beach at home; it was so nice to just cross the street with my towel and be at the beach, and pop back to the house if I forgot something. We will definitely rent this cottage again.

100% perfection. Cleanest rental I’ve ever been in. Pool area in person is way nicer than pictured. House is adorable and has every thing you need. Beach is a 2 minute walk.

Pirates Cove was perfect for our vacation. The house was very comfortable and was close to everything. We would definitely come back!

We had one little hiccup during our stay that was never resolved – the keypad on the front door. We never did get it to work. We were able to access the property using the lock box on the side door, so it was fine.

All that aside, it’s an adorable beach cottage, nicely decorated, and the outdoor space - the private pool and patio was our favorite feature of the property. Its walking distance to the beach, restaurants, and the AMI trolley.
Manager response:
Hello Tiffany, thank you for your review. We are glad that you were able to enjoy your stay, despite the hiccup with the elock. We have reset the code and confirmed it is working for future guests. We hope to host you again, soon!

Convenient location to public beach access and private pool!

This was our second stay at this property & it was even better than the first time. It’s the perfect size for our little family.

If you’re like me and wondering if the walk to the beach really is as short as advertised - rest assured. We have four small boys 8 and under (1 is a newborn), and even with their dawdling, it took me less than 5 minutes to walk from the front door to the water. The beach is gorgeous, sparsely populated, water pristine. We felt comfortable leaving our beach setup (minus valuables) to walk back and forth to the house for snacks and potty breaks as needed.

The house itself is quaint and charming, beautiful decor, a nice layout: the perfect little bungalow. It has all the amenities we could ask for, including all kitchen supplies which was important since we stayed in for most meals.

My boys love that the house has outdoor toys available & we love the outdoor shower (with hot water!) to be able to clean them up without tracking all their mess into the house.

And I almost forgot the pool! It’s a great size for the 6 of us- just enough room to all play comfortably, deep enough for cannon ball contests, but also has a shallow shelf for our toddler to sit and play in a couple inches of water too. For October, the water was warm enough for us without being heated, and plenty of towels are provided when it comes time to dry off.

Something that was neat about this visit is that on a walk home from the beach one day, we ran into another vacationing couple who had stayed multiple times at this property in the past. Like us, they had glowing remarks about it, and mentioned several of the same things I have in our conversation. We’ve been using rental properties for over 20 years and have become quite discerning about our requirements for a vacation home. Pirate’s Cove meet all of them- I’ve already recommended this property to many of my friends and family!

Well supplied, clean, cottage walking distance to the beach

First off, was planning a week vacation for a girls trip- did a LOT of research on location (always google map places so you can see how easy it is to walk to the beach.) this house was awesome in that it took - minute to go out the door and across the street. The house is Super cute, and the beds were awesome. Slept like a baby (can the owner comment on the mattress name actually?!). We had one small issue with the shower, but it was addressed immediately. Pool is nice, house came with two beach chairs, buckets for sand castle building and umbrellas. For the first time in my 35yrs I would say that I would return to this exact house. Would be great for a family rental of 2-4 kids as well!

My family and I rented this home for 7 days/ 6 nights. We make a 12 hr trip by vehicle to visit this beach, it is well worth it (even with 2 kids). This is not our first trip to the island, this was our first time at Pirate’s Cove. The location is amazing!!! We will be coming back and next year we are looking to stay even longer. The only set back was the one bathroom, everything else made that workable for our family of 4. The pool is simply gorgeous. The only suggestion I have is to have an indoor broom at the home, we wanted to sweep the floor, but didn’t have a broom. If you are worried about renting a home without onsite managers, don’t worry...we had a small issue. I sent an email (not wanting to be on hold on vacation), someone arrived to address the issue within an hour. Overall, this is a wonderful place to spend a week or longer in paradise!

It was clean, close to the beach, and in a good location.

Das "A Pirate´s Cove" hat uns bereits durch die bei Vacasa hinterlegten Fotos überzeugt, so dass wir es für ca. zwei Wochen im April/Mai 2019 buchten. Ich kann es vorwegschicken - alle unsere Erwartungen wurden nicht nur erfüllt, sondern übertroffen. Das Haus hält alles vor, was wir für einen rundum gelungenen Urlaub mit unserem 5jährigen Sohn benötigten. Die Inneneinrichtung ist liebevoll zusammengestellt, die Küche mit großem Kühlschrank plus großem Eisfach, kleinerer Spülmaschine, Herd, Waschmaschine und Trockner voll ausgestattet, praktisch auch die Durchreiche zum Essbereich. Die zwei Schlafzimmer bieten sicher auch einer etwas größeren Familie ausreichend Platz, das Bad mit Dusche ist klein, aber ebenfalls ausreichend. Der hintere, kaum einsehbare Bereich mit Sitzgelegenheiten auf der Terrasse (mit Grill) und am Pool ist gemütlich, der Pool größer als es der Eindruck auf den Fotos vermittelt. Unser Sohn hat dort nun schwimmen gelernt. Vor dem auch äußerlich im dortigen für uns sehr ansprechenden Stil gehaltenen Haus befinden sich zwei Parkplätze, ausreichend groß auch für Dickschiffe (in unserem Fall ein Suburban). Vacasa reagiert auf jede Nachfrage prompt, freundlich und professionell, ebenfalls sehr zu empfehlen. Führt uns unsere Reiseplanung wieder in diese Gegend, wäre "A Pirate´s Cove" wieder unsere erste Adresse. Klare Empfehlung!

Our favorite spot was to sit outside with our family in the mornings and have breakfast next to the pool in the back. The backyard truly feels like an oasis. The home comes with a few floats, beach chairs, and toys for the kids to take to the beach (we totally didn't realize this otherwise we would have left ours at home :)

Am hoping to make this an annual stay for our family.

The house was cozy. We got into the home when the maintenance person was there and he helped us with some TV and pool questions and was very friendly. Great location on the island with a short walk to the beach. Close to restaurants. Uber availability. Lots of hot water. Nice full kitchen. Pool was perfect size and was heated. Beach chairs available.

We loved everything about our stay at the A Pirate's Cove vacation rental. One of the best holiday experiences we had in our life. We're definitely coming back.

This little house was so cozy and charming. The walk to the beach was very short. The only downside - the master bed mattress was hard. The pool was a bit small. Otherwise, cute place!

"A Pitates Cove was absolutely awesome! Cottage was perfect in every way!"
Cathy Y. Nov 2016
We could not have had a more cozy, well-appointed, vintage beach cottage! From the awesome swimming pool to the fully stocked kitchen, A Pirate's Cove was perfect for our needs. Close to the beach access and Island Trolley Stop. We cooked breakfast every morning, and enjoyed the cheery dining area. The property was beautiful, and the back patio/pool private. I can't praise this home enough!! Lovely time on AMI.
