Charming house with private heated pool, patio, and grill - steps from beach
Align yourself to island time with this cozy and colorful Anna Maria cottage! With a heated pool, shallow tanning area, and a lush tropical oasis right out back, any post-flight crankiness will melt right away. A stunning Anna Maria sunset completes your backyard paradise scene.
This home's proximity to the beach is one of its biggest draws! Walk a little over a block to feel the sand between your toes at City Park Beach. You're surrounded by dining options within a few miles, including a couple of restaurants right up Gulf Drive. This home has driveway parking for up to three vehicles, but the free trolley is a great alternate option for exploring the island and its seven miles of pristine beaches.
Adorned with vibrant yellows and soothing blues and greens, this home will put you in a sunny vacation frame of mind. The rental is outfitted with free WiFi and a desk area just off the kitchen, in case you need to work while you're here, while the fully equipped kitchen has all the appliances you need to whip up lunch and snacks before the beach. For dinner, marinade meats and throw some kabobs on the gas grill out back, then set up for a movie night on one of the TVs.

It’s a nice house in a good location, but some items didn’t work or were broken and not exactly sparkling clean, how we hoped reading previous reviews.

Thank you for alerting us to these issues and allowing us to send over maintenance to make those repairs. We are working closely with our housekeeping team to ensure that they are paying close attention to detail while preparing for guests and following the current COVID-19 cleaning protocols. However, we would like to apologize for any missed areas. We appreciate you sharing your feedback. We hope to host you again, soon!

This house has everything you need to enjoy your vacation, we really loved the pool it was beautiful. The easy walk to the private beach area was great!! The beach was pretty with the white sand and Clearwater. Definitely recommend this house!
Jeremy Z.Jul 2020
This is an absolutely wonderful home. It is a block from the beach. Everything you need for the beach is provided, chairs, umbrella, toys, towels, small cooler, and cart to haul it all in. The backyard pool was awesome. The house has all the amenities you need in the kitchen. Having a washer and dryer was great so we feel like we didn’t have to over pack. Would definitely stay here again!
Angie L.Jul 2020
Home was updated, clean and had everything we needed! Spent most of our time at the beautiful pool. Was a quick walk to the beach!
Kim H.May 2020
We loved this home - well equipped, extremely clean and close to the beach.
Robin S.May 2020
It was very clean and in the perfect location. I would definitely love to use this location again. Huge open floor plan plenty of space for the kids. Thank you so much.
John G.Feb 2020
Our first trip to Anna Maria and we loved it. The house was clean and had everything we needed. Location is close to beach and restaurants. Only issue was pool water temperature was erratic. Warm in morning but cool in afternoon. Pool heater was controlled remotely.

This rental was fantastic! One of the best we’ve had. Very spacious for 5 or even 8 ppl.-we have a fam of 5 with 3 teens/college age. So nice to have the pool. Pool was a bit cold at night. 1 hair dryer needs replaced. Master bath/bedroom was a bit stuffy, but there were fans in closets, so that helped tremendously. Coffee maker does use the cone type filters. I left a box of them for future renters. The beach towels were perfect, along with beach supplies in garage.-umbrella, chairs, toys. Even a small styrofoam cooler was included. We were shorted hand towels and wash cloths-I didn’t notice it right away so didn’t call. Overall rental was wonderful—very clean, spacious, walk to beach. Highly recommend!

Impeccably clean! Great location one short block to the beach. The backyard and pool feel like an oasis. This home is bright, cheerful and is well appointed. Cuisinart coffee pot uses cone #4 filters.
Carolyn M.Dec 2019
We had a great experience on Anna Maria Island and with this house. The layout was great. The pool was beautiful and so warm! Easy walk to the beach.
Gene T.Aug 2019
Clean, clean, clean for island time! Everything you need for a beach cottage and loving the beach. Plus the fab landscaping, pool area an oasis. Bikes worked well to get to the beach, AMI beach was pristine and the Gulf was calling to us every morning. SUNSETs unbelievable. Back to the home, good fit for three of us, being beach cottage owners in NC, took away good ideas i.e. landscaping, bikes, pool, tile, master shower, lights and night lights. Thanks Pretty Palms!

Perfectly remodeled house and close walk to the beach!
Holly E.Jul 2019
We had a wonderful week at Pretty Palms. Great location and everything you need is right there. I am hoping we can return for a longer stay next Summer.
One piece of feedback that I will share. I wanted to be prepared for our trip so I contacted Vacasa and asked if this specific property had pool towels provided. They replied and told me unfortunately not. I then replied and asked if there were any bikes there and again they said no. Both of these are untrue. This property does have pool towels and bikes.
Hello Holly, Thank you so much for your review. We are glad that you enjoyed your stay at Pretty Palms! We appreciate your feedback regarding your stay; please do note that the bikes are not a listed amenity as they are not available for guest use. We have made sure to include that there are pool towels available for guests during their stay. We hope to host you again in the future for your next getaway!
Mechele B.Jun 2019
The house was perfect for our family of 5. It was nice to have pool towels provided, a well stocked kitchen and beach amenities. It was the perfect location with a 5 min walk to the beach. We will definitely consider staying here again.
Leslie M.Jun 2019
We had a great time, close to the beach, great shops and restaurants! The pool was amazing too! We will be back.

We loved the pool. We were also close to the beach. House was beautiful and had everything we needed. We loved looking at their book seeing all the improvements they made to the house. We will be back.
David H.Jan 2019
We had a great stay in a house close to the beach with a heated pool. Bikes were available in the garage, too. It was easy walking into town of Anna Maria Island with quaint shops and a variety of restaurants nearby. Sunsets were lovely, too!
Paul B.Oct 2018
Clean, great location, pool and house layout, all perfect.w
Laura S.Sep 2018
The pool was wonderful considering the red tide in the area.. the house was very clean and modern. A perfect layout for two families. The decor was very nice.
MARK J.Jun 2018
We loved this house. It was our second trip to AMI and our second house. While both houses we stayed in were similar, this one was the clear winner! Super clean, plenty of room for a family of six, great kitchen, big laundry room, great master bath, comfortable beds, and the pool is awesome! One other thing, we didn’t see one single bug in 7 days! That’s HUGE!! Our other house was clean but there were bugs. We kind of assumed all houses would have some considering it is FL. But...ZILCH. The location is perfect...such a short walk to the beach and a 3-5 minute drive to Bean Point and Pine. When we go back to AMI, we will try to get this house again.

Mike S.Jul 2016
We rented Pretty Palms on Periwinkle and found the house, pool and grounds to be beautiful with many upgrades we could only dream of in our home. We were pleasantly surprised to see you provided beach towels along with luxurious bath towels and the bicycles provided were an added bonus. We took bike rides around the island several mornings. The kitchen was more than stocked with every type of dish, pan and cooking utensil.
Rhonda M.Jun 2016
"The house was lovely. It was comfortable and stocked with all the utensils, towels, we required. The bbq was in working order, which we enjoyed. It was a very short walk to the beach, which was also great. The backyard landscaping was superb - it was a wonderful place to relax."

Vanessa G.Nov 2012
I was incredibly impressed that I popped into the office to report I had broken the coffee pot and approx. 1 hour later someone came round to deliver a new coffee maker. This I was not expecting and was most impressed by! The property is beautiful and was beautifully clean and had everything we needed. Thank you! My boys particularly loved the pool.
Beckie R.Oct 2012
Very well stocked and extremely clean. I would highly recommend to all, Thank you!

Your staff was polite and very helpful. Everything was great. Staff was helpful, we called about A/C and had a guy out a few minutes later. Also changed propane tank for us.
