We decide to go to Anna Maria island for a day trip from Tampa and we found this gem on airbnb. It was ready in short notice, very clean, updated and Jim is a very welcoming guy. His two little dogs are super cute and we brought our dog as well. I recommend this place highly.

Our stay was wonderful. Very nice and clean. Had everything we needed for our stay. Beautiful garden, which my two dogs enjoyed. Location is ideal, close to everything. Very nice and quiet neighborhood. I was able to drive an hour to Clearwater and spend a day there and Sarasota was only a 20 minute drive. Spent most of my time on Anna Maria Island which was only a 5 mile drive. Definitely worth the price. Would return in the future.

Jim's place is a hidden paradise but is so close to everything that you want to visit. We loved the foliage that made you feel like the city had disappeared and the privacy was outstanding! Loved Jim and Zsa-Zsa & Eva. his adorable little dogs. Can't wait to make a return trip!

I think this is a great stay and excellent value for the area. We chose Jim's place because it was close to Sarasota and all of the beaches, but wasn't expensive. The room was really well designed, and reminded me of a place I stayed at in Thailand. Would come back again if in the Sarasota area.

Jim User ProfileJim is a superhost.

Hi, my husband Jim and I have lived in Florida (from a mini-farm in Ohio) for over 17 years with being in Bradenton for the past 10. Having traveled to Jamaica, Miami and a lot of other towns up and down both east and west coasts, we have not found a more tranquil yet exciting and beautiful place than Bradenton area which also includes Sarasota (only 12 miles south).
For the past 25 years we have been in the music business as DJ's and KJ's. Jim sings the old standards in the style of Michael Buble'. You'll see Michael's personalized autographed picture to us in our hall (great story behind that which we'll share while you're here). Anyway, we hope you'll come along to one or more of our gigs and possibly sing. We also have a mini studio in our home which if interested, you could practice some songs.
My passion in life has been to own a B&B so what better way to fulfill that dream (in a smaller version) then to offer our cottage so as to meet exciting new friends such as yourself.
When not working, if I'm not hosting a charity dinner/get-together in my home, you will find us either sitting out back around the pool playing backgammon or Jim and I enjoy a martini once or twice a week at Pier 22 restaurant on the Manatee River during their happy hour...possibly you'll join us there also if you're not too busy with all there is to do here.
We know you'll enjoy your stay and we, along with our two 'babies' Zsa Zsa and Ava (Yorkie-Silky mix) look forward to seeing you soon.
