Hurricane Irma made landfall in Florida this September. This was the first major hurricane to hit Florida since Wilma in 2005. Luckily, Anna Maria Island only sustained minimal effects. Damage was minor and mostly limited to tree debris and few days without power.
Businesses and the municipalities of Bradenton Beach, Holmes Beach and the City of Anna Maria worked quickly to have everything cleaned and up and running in no time. Bridge Street in Bradenton Beach was open the next day! While the Anna Maria Island pier remains closed, you can still visit the Bradenton Beach pier during your trip.
A resident of Bradenton Beach sums it up best: “We’re thankful we didn’t have substantial damage. Our community was back to normal quickly, and our hearts are with those that have more to deal with.”
Future guests were concerned how Hurricane Irma effected the houses and community, and our Sato Real Estate team was able to provide prompt updates to all our owners and guests. The property managers worked hard to evaluate each house and ready them for arrival of the next guests. We’re proud that we did not have to deter anyone from traveling for their future trips.
