There's nothing between you and the soft, sandy beach, so head out for your Vitamin D fix whenever you like. When its time to explore, stay cool in the free, air-conditioned trolley, which will take you through Holmes and Bradenton Beaches, and when you're not in the mood to cook, walk to the famous Sandbar Restaurant for a meal out.

Sit and relax while you connect with friends at home on the free WiFi or watch a movie on the flatscreen cable TV, complete with DVD player. Make something delicious in the open kitchen or on the gas grill and savor it at the dining table, surrounded by windows that give way to views of rolling dunes, turquoise waters, and frolicking porpoises. Or dine al fresco on the sunny patio. If the laundry starts to pile up, toss it in the private washer/dryer before your turn in for the night.

We loved our stay at Dolphin Watch! Perfect location, cute little place, perfect for a family of four. The outdoor space can use a little TLC, also a couple of extra blankets would have been helpful during our stay. Overall a great week for our family!
I can't say enough great things about this wonderful beach house! We had an absolutely perfect week, and the house was comfortable, well stocked, convenient to lots of shops and restaurants, and just everything you could want in a beach house. We would definitely come back!
Love the great beach location. Kitchen was well stocked for cooking. House had almost anything you'd want....beach chairs, fishing rod, washer and dryer. Comfy beds.
My wife and I stayed in this beautiful home for our 20th wedding anniversary! This was our 5th visit to the island and was our favorite place to stay. The proximity to the beach is amazing and the house was probably the cleanest home (or hotel) that I have ever stayed in! Would definitely recommend for a couple or small family!
We stayed for our anniversary. Very cozy and quiet. Will rebook for next year. Walking distance to restaurants
First of all the process with Vacasa was seemless and easy making the whole experience better. The property was amazing. Described perfectly and exceeded our expectations. Perfect location, perfect amenities and nothing was short of a 10 out of 10. We will be rebooking our next trip tonight after just getting back yesterday!
Wonderful location, location, location. As a photographer, I'm going to try earlier in the year next time. Shooting sunset makes eating out after at top restaraunts nearly impossible locally with early closings.
4 step entry was very nice for my elderly parents who spent most of their stay watching people going to and from beach through the big picture windows in the dining room. Great view from the dining room.
Wish the house had a raised deck or something. The near ground level aspect of the house, did reduce the view of the water over the dunes. Maybe a spiral staircase from the laundry room area up into a small viewing 'steeple' with room for 2 seats would make this house perfect, 5 stars.
We love this place...three years in a row for one week here.. our favorite rental on the island! ... and we have rented numerous places...
This was our first visit to Anna Maria Island. We went for our wedding anniversary and fell in love with the place. The island and the little cottage were everything we were looking for. We loved the amazing panoramic views, the beautiful sunsets, the fact that it is just steps from the beach yet feels quiet and secluded, and also that we could bring our dog with us. We could not think of a better place to enjoy a relaxing vacation. Now we can't wait to be back every year!
The sunshine yellow interior makes for everything bright and happy! Comfortable bed and well appointed. Beach chairs and beach towels were available which was great. Loved our stay!
Lovely little cottage on the beach. Great place to have a relaxing vacation.
"The house is wonderful! We do not want to leave!"
My son and I loved the house and the location. It was just the right size for the two of us. We cooked in almost every night, sat at the dinning room table or the outside dining area, keeping an eye on the sky for sunset. We lounged on the beautiful beach each day, taking long strolls around the northern tip of the island, seeking out seashells. My son spent a few days exhausting himself on a skim board. I think I read 3 books.... a wonderful time!
Thanks to several of the Island Realty staff for your assistance in arranging our stay.
We have rented through your office 5 times and have always enjoyed our stays!
Trouble free stay - very happy!
We came to stay here during a major storm, while were bummed about not getting much beach time, the house was beautiful, clean, and comfy-like-home! We were literally stuck inside for 4 days straight and because this house was so lovely, and fully equipped...we all had a wonderful time. My husband and 9 year old son played football on the playstation. My daughter and I did some baking and we all watched the storm through the panoramic view of the gulf! Beautiful Home!
Loved it! Amazing week in spite of the cold temperatures. Thank you.
This is a wonderful property and we enjoyed our stay. We plan to come back to this location.
This was the best accommodation we ever stayed in! The panoramic view is fantastic. The rooms are lovely equipped. We loved it! See you soon. Thank you so much for your great work!
Great place, terrific view!
Beautiful property - suffice to say we didn't want to leave!
Island Real Estate was very helpful, they removed the tarp that was noisy in the wind *immediately* upon our mentioning the problem. Thanks!
Perfect location- we will return to 12108!!
We love the house, it is absolutely adorable! The location is perfect. It is our new favorite place on the Island! Hope to see you next year!
What a wonderful place to stay. Will definitely return in the future.
Lovely sweet yellow cottage with the perfect location! We had the most wonderful time- thank you!
Great location & cottage helped us cope with the cold weather.
When I walked in the house, all I could say was WOW! Very comfortable. Furniture and linens clean and cared for. Everything was provided.
We had a wonderful stay. Everything was very clean & well cared for.
We loved it here! We would love to come back. House had more than expected.
We love the position of 12108 on the beach, in the dunes, and close to The Sandbar resturant, yet very private & quite!
Love the colors, nice floor, warm feeling- bright- wonderful. Good size for single family of 4. Also nice TV & great to have WiFi and DVR. Nice windows.
Wonderful house- can\'t wait to stay here again- hopefully next year!!
Es war ganz wunderbar hier auf AMI. Unser Haus war groÃartig. Vielen Dank fÃ¼r alles!
This property is amazing! We loved our stay!
Property met or exceeded expectations developed over years of experience in renting beach properties in Florida and North Carolina...We would again rent this property. We came to the island without reserving lodging in advance. We set out on an adventure and found it. Thank you.
Very nice stay. Love this property. Hope to rent again. Will recommend to friends. Love the WI-Fi internet.
I've rented many beach houses and this has by far been the prettiest and cleanest. The robes were great. So was the telescope.
Again, an excellent experience. I\'m very impressed with your cleaning crew - They do A++ work!
Another great vacation at this adorable beach house!! See you again next year!
As always we loved it. Enjoyed the table and chairs outside - we were able to spend more time outside. See you next Spring at 12108 Gulf and 207 Coconut this Fall.
What an extraordinary rental property - perfect for my vacation. I hope I can come again to this lovely home, a PERFECT vacation for me; rest, renewal, sun. Thanks for being apart of that!
Your staff was especially helpful this time, as I had some logistically juggling to do! Thank you!
It was again 'paradise on earth'! Shopping, dining, going to the beach - everything is great and completely without any stress! We love it!!! Thanks again for your great work! AMI & Island Real Estate ROCKS!!
