Victoria Sweeney, of Island Scooter Rentals, is offering
Sizzling Specials for her 15-year anniversary.
Anna Maria Island is the definitive representation of Florida island life, and the definite way to experience island life is from the seat of a scooter or a bike or in the Gulf waters. The place to make this experience happen is Island Scooter Rentals in Anna Maria city that has everything you need to make your definitive island life come to life.
Victoria Sweeney knows something of island life. She originally came to Florida from Chicago via Key West for a five day dive vacation and never returned.
After living in Key West for a number of years, she moved to Anna Maria investing in a scooter rental business starting with an inventory of only 10 scooters. This summer she is celebrating her 15th year in business with an inventory of 25 scooters, 20 bikes and water sports equipment, easily quadrupling her business.
Island Scooter Rentals moved this year from their original location at the Silver Surf Resort in Bradenton Beach to the old post office plaza one block before Pine Avenue in Anna Maria. But that wasn’t the only change. Sweeney has added a large assortment of water sports equipment to compliment her fleet of scooters and bicycles, including custom, super light weight paddle boards, kayaks and boggie/body boards with complimentary training included.
Kayaks are either single or double and there are wheels available to conveniently wheel them right down the street to the beach or they can be delivered. Shortly Island Scooter will also be offering all in one beach accessories with coolers, chairs and tote bags.
Sweeney is very proud of her new Keeway four-stroke scooters that get 100 miles per gallon. She is very conscientious about maintenance of the scooters and has new and used scooters for sale as well as rentals. A driver’s license is required to drive a scooter per state law, however, anyone can be a passenger and you can be certain Sweeney makes sure both you and she are comfortable on the scooter before handing over the keys.
Island Scooter stocks Phat bikes for rent for both adults and kids and provides helmets, locks and maps for all of their rentals. You can also pick up a SPF 50 shirt to help protect you from the sun.
Victoria Sweeney says her rates are very competitive with hourly, weekly and monthly rates available.
To celebrate her 15-year anniversary she is offering Sizzle Specials with reduced rates on bicycles starting at $10 for 24 hours, four-hour paddle board rentals for $50, four-hour double kayaks for $50 and body boards for $20 for the day. Motor scooter rates start at $25 for an hour for singles and $35 for double.
Sweeney loves her island life and especially her new location right in the heart of Anna Maria. She wants to thank all islanders, visitors and friends and family for helping her to develop and maintain a successful business for the past 15 years.
Island Scooter Rentals will arrange for you to ride the Island and the waves in style. Walk, drive or take the trolley to Island Scooter Rentals located in the courtyard of the old post office plaza in Anna Maria. When you see the big colorful umbrella you’ll know you’re in the right place.
