Beautiful, well-maintained home w/ heated private pool - walk to beach, dining

You'll be about a half-block from the beach, and when you're not there soaking up the sunshine, it's always within sight from your deck. Stroll the seven miles of flour soft sand or head to Pine Avenue and take in the local art culture. Bean Point Beach is a great place to snap some photos, and Rod and Reel Pier and Restaurant is a short walk from your front door. There's room for three cars to park in the driveway, but you haven't truly experienced Anna Maria Island until you've used the free trolley to get around!

Catch up on your favorite shows on the flatscreen digital cable TV. Prepare meals in the updated kitchen or barbecue some salmon or kabobs on the gas grill on the patio. After dinner, unplug with a board game or lounge poolside with a bottle of wine and relax under swaying palm trees.

Other choice amenities include a private washer/dryer, free WiFi, and a desk in the master bedroom if you absolutely have to bring work along.

Loved the ambiance and layout of the house. Pool area lovely but could do with new furniture. Well equipped home a half block to a fantastic beach. Great family vacation. Vacasa responsive and helpful when contacted.

Location is great. Large heated pool. Short minute walk to beach. House is updated and is very nice. Only negative would be the lighting outside. Pool area has no lighting so swimming at night is hard without area being lit up. Stairs to the house have no lighting and the area below where you park has a motion sensor light that doesn’t kick on until you are already at your car. So just bad lighting all around on the outside of the house. Everything else is great.

Wonderfully located with super convenient access to the beach. Clean, comfortable, and had everything we needed. We especially enjoyed sitting for hours on the wrap around porch deck. Would definitely love to stay here again!

As regular vacationers on AMI, we loved the house and its proximity and easy access to the beach. Other than the facts that the bed mattresses were softer than we prefer, and the dryer does not seem to generate enough heat to dry off clothes, the accommodations were perfect.
The big disappointment was the lack of response from the local Vacasa office. We reported that the recycling bin was overflowing and obviously filled with garbage (potent odor that made grilling or sitting on the porch less than enjoyable) on Tuesday. We were told by the Head Office that recycling would not be picked up if it contained garbage and that the local office would be in touch with us. In spite of repeated attempts to get the issue addressed, the situation had not been remedied on Saturday am when we left, and the local office never contacted us.

Everything about this sty was amazing. The house was beautiful and well stocked, the location to beach was incredible, and the pool was absolutely wonderful. Couldn’t ask for a better experience
Abdiel G. Aug 2020
We spent only a few days at the house and it was amazing. Everything was spotless and the pool area was great. The only thing was that the trash bins were full perhaps from the previous renters but other than that, just amazing. Will for sure come back in the future.
Maria J. Jul 2020
Location was awesome ! Easy access to a beautiful and semi secluded beach. Light and airy open floor plan which provided a comfortable family environment. The covered porch area made it easy to relax outdoors while watching the sunset
at the end of the day. Excellent private pool with plenty of space to lounge. We even had a visit from the resident tortoise that resides in the certified wildlife habitat on the grounds. Our family will definitely look forward to returning in the future.
Andrew R. Jul 2020
Everything we wanted: easy walk to beach, deck, great pool, grill and even a little view of the gulf. Definitely can see the thoughtful touches with kitchen wares, beach gear, laundry detergent, etc. Huge kitchen. First visit at this property but would definitely stay again!
Patrick D. Jul 2020
This place was awesome!! It was perfect for the number of guests we had, a very short walk to get on the beach, and well cleaned! The pool was also great.
Gianna K. Jun 2020
This house was the perfect spot for our family of 5. Beautifully appointed, clean and great proximity to a quiet beach. The pool was one of our favorite things about the house- there is a beautiful cabana that provides shade as well as native plants to provide a great backdrop and lots of privacy. Beds were very comfortable too! As mentioned, basic kitchen necessities like salt/pepper, coffee filters and laundry detergent, were lacking but overall we loved this house and would definitely return!
Nicholas H. Mar 2020
Lovely home, great location, wonderful pool. Some salt/pepper & beach chairs would have been nice.
Kristin K. Dec 2019
Better in person than in the photos (obviously had been remodeled since the photos had been taken)! We especially loved the covered deck/porch off the living room, with it’s sunset views, and the beach was a very short walk. We also enjoyed the pool area and the enormous kitchen, where all 6 of us could move around and not be in each other’s way. The wet bar was awesome for making cocktails too. Plenty of dishes, towels, pillows and blankets, but be sure to pack things such as coffee filters, paper towels, spices (including salt and pepper), and extra TP. The only negative was the ants (small, sugar ants), which were abundant in the kitchen and bathrooms - annoying, but not so bad that we felt the need to complain to management. All and all, we enjoyed ourselves and we’d come back.

Private, clean, beautiful
Julia C. Aug 2019
Great location. Very cute cottage with nice furnishings. Kitchen is huge and we'll stocked. Pool and landscaping are very nice. Nice little view of the gulf. There were no beach chairs, pool floaties, etc. Would have been nice if there were.
Linda G. Aug 2019
Beautiful, well appointed home, only yards from the Gulf of Mexico. Open and spacious floor plan that feels roomy and cozy all rolled into one.
Stephenie R W. Jun 2019
The location is amazing, right across the street from a secluded beach access. We found a wagon, sand toys, and umbrellas to use on the beach. The swimming pool (I think it’s a salt water pool) was surrounded by chairs and a beautiful pergola, not to mention native plants that provide lots of privacy. Upstairs, there is a covered deck with comfortable chairs and a table, perfect for having dinner. The deck faces west and we could watch the sunset or bask in the morning beach breezes. Inside the house we found everything we could want in a vacation home. The decor was perfect, beachy, but not kitschy. The kitchen is well stocked with plenty of dishes for all of us and all the utensils to prepare any kind of meal. The beds were all comfortable. The house is within a ten minute walk to shops and eateries. Overall, an amazing house, with everything you could want for a vacation home. We hope to come back.
Jason N. Jun 2019
Absolutely loved this place. Great location. Very clean. Close to the beach which was never crowded. My favorite vacation home ever. Will definitely be back!
Kelly U. Apr 2019
Adorable house. Easy access to the beach. Suitable for a family of five or six. The pool was good size & very private. Very clean. Rental company was helpful.
KATE S. Mar 2019
The home was very clean. Had comfortable beds and plenty of room for all 5 of us. The best part was it was just across the street from an amazing beach. We were close to the fun things that the island offers without feeling like it was really busy. Having a pool was also great. Our kids loved playing in it. The description of the house and photos were right on. We would stay again for sure!!
Julia C. Feb 2019
Loved everything about Sundance Cottage. Perfect location. Very nicely decorated. Plenty of indoor and outdoor space.
Adrian W. Dec 2018
In brief:
- Property just as shown in pictures - very nicely furnished and equipped
- Great location - just across the street from beach access
- Really nice landscaping and surroundings - quite "private" in all directions
- Quiet location but close enough to walk/bike for coffee/snacks/etc.
- Staff were GREAT to work with. Very responsive and accommodating
- Would highly recommend and we will probably rent again in the future
Katie B. Apr 2018
Will stay here again! Perfect north end location and easy beach access! Thank you - sad break is over.
Tracy W. Apr 2018
Great location on the island and easy walking distance to the beach. Beautifully furnished.
Amanda Y. Mar 2018
This home is very close to the beach and has a nice open floor plan.
Barb And Ken B. Mar 2018
We enjoyed this cottage immensely. The wide front porch was perfect for breakfasts and naps in the afternoon. It was clean and well-appointed. We especially enjoyed how well the kitchen was stocked with cooking implements as we like to eat in a fair bit. There were lots of beach toys, chairs and umbrellas which was also much appreciated. Overall a very pleasant accommodation.
Bridget K. Jun 2016
My husband and I stayed for a week with my son (15), daughter (24) and her partner. The accomadation was perfect, clean, bright, and well located with a lovely pool. It had a peaceful atmosphere. We all had fun, the beach was beautiful and a very short walk from the sea. We saw and swam with manatees. None of us wanted to leave and we would all go back.
Stacey L. May 2016
We enjoyed our recent stay at Sundance. The property is well kept, clean, and has all the amenities you will need for your stay. The beach is just short walk with the beach access across the street. Nice covered patio for relaxing, and pool was great. Would stay here again.
Lukas S. May 2014
Very happy with our stay at Sundance cottage - have already booked for 2015.
Jo B. Jan 2014
We could not have chosen a more perfect house to enjoy our stay in on Anna Maria Island. The house is so spacious, well equipped, with a great pool and the location is amazing, a one minute walk across to the most gorgeous beach! We have vacationed in the US many of times and stayed in Anna Maria last year and we can honestly say that this one of the best homes/ rentals that we have stayed in and we were truly sad to leave. Island Real Estate were extremely professional and helpful throughout and we would certainly use their service again. I can not recommend Island Real Estate and this house enough.
Natascha K. Jan 2013
Perfect Getaway, we hope to be back in Spring 2010! There was even a Weber grill. Hope that the trees grow to provide more shade at the pool.
Olsen F. Oct 2012
Great location! Heated pool was perfect! Computer, printer and TV's were very handy . Nicely decorated . Great fridge, stove, love the counter tops in the kitchen and bath!
