Dog-friendly condo w/ beautiful upstairs deck and grill, steps from the beach
Sandy’s Getaway offers two distinct spaces to accommodate the whole family or multiple couples - a ground-level bedroom and a larger upstairs suite, connected by outdoor stairs. Everyone is welcome here, and that does include the family dog! Canine members of the family, up to 30 lbs, are welcome for a small nightly fee.
This home is just a block from the pristine beach, so you may want to spend all day on the sand. Head about half a mile up the road to explore some dining options, including delicious seafood at The Sandbar Restaurant. If you'd like to explore the island, up to three cars can park in the driveway - but we recommend simply hopping on the free trolley that runs up and down Anna Maria Island!
Back at Sandy's Getaway, you'll find a small living area, TV, and private bathroom in the downstairs suite, as well as a washer and dryer, accessible from the outside. Regroup upstairs in the great room, or lounge on the deck while the gas grill heats up. Inside, the kitchen is fully equipped with dishware and modern appliances, including a dishwasher for easy clean-up. After dinner, gather in the living room for a movie night on the wall-mounted flat screen TV, or use the free WiFi to keep in touch with everyone back home.

The house was clean and the beach was a short walk away. The free island trolley stop is right across the street. Appreciated the beach umbrellas and sand toys for grandkids.
There were plenty of bath towels and beach towels.

We stayed here for four days during Memorial Day weekend and I have to say the entire stay was perfect. This was our first time staying in Anna Maria island (family of 5 with kids that are 7,20, and 21) and there was something for everyone. The island is clean and vibrant with plenty of outdoor activities. The house that we rented was perfect from a the location to the layout. I read some reviews about the walk to the beach being far but it is only a block away and that is pretty standard for all the homes on the island. There is one bedroom and a bath downstairs which myself and my wife used and the kids stayed upstairs where there are two rooms, a bathroom, kitchen, and the living room. The decor is very beachy and well kept. Everything was clean and there were plenty of towels and toiletries for our stay. We were looking to buy an umbrella for the beach but tomour surprise there was an umbrella, chairs, and floats downstairs in the laundry room. We would definitely rent here again in the future and would recommend it to anyone who is looking for a well appointed and well priced beach rental.

We loved the house and how much room we had. But for 7 people staying, 1 garbage bag, 1 role of paper towels and toilet paper, and a few towels was not enough.

I loved the private room. Thanks!

This house was very clean inside and had everything needed for a few days stay. The beach is a short walk at the end of the block and is beautiful and the trolley stop to take you around the island is right across the street.

Stayed here with some close friends to get away for labor day weekend. It is listed as right on the beach but it is about a quarter mile walk from there. Also, this house is 2 story and has steep stairs to get up to the main living space. The house was nice but I probably wouldn't rent again.

This home is in a great location, short walk to the beach and close to the trolley stops as well. One of the bedrooms has a completely separate entrance and to get to the main part of the home you must go outside and up stairs. This worked for us because we have teenagers. We let them sleep upstairs and downstairs was our "parent suite". The home was very clean, the kitchen had everything we needed to cook meals. The only negative to me was the outside needed a little attention. The awning over the carport was torn badly. Other than that, it was a great place for us to stay and we really enjoyed it.
We have scheduled a contractor to take care of the ripped awning. We are glad to see the home was otherwise enjoyable!

House was very clean. Great location. Split floor plan was great for our group. VERY minimal toiletries and towels/linens. Definitely bring your own laundry detergent, toiletries, and beach towels. Had an issue with a broken toilet handle- could not be forseen by the owners- they fixed it within an hour. Excellent! Do have to wait for a while on the phone depending on the time you call. Overall great place, very clean. Good value for the price!

This home worked very well for us. We used the downstairs bedroom for our in-laws so they didn't have to walk up and down the stairs to much. The kitchen is very well equipped with everything you need. Pictures on the site are very accurate. We had an issue with the down stairs AC filter and it was fixed within 30 minutes. The lady I spoke with was very friendly and the guy who fixed the AC was just as friendly. The only things I would change is the door on the big bedroom and the bathroom, they are not solid doors. The doors are old type with slates on them which are not private. Other than that this was a very nice place and right down the street from the beach. Would stay here again.

We stayed here for 3 nights with our 2 young children. Firstly, the 3rd bedroom is on the lower floor with complete separate access - nowhere does it mention this in the description which meant we couldn’t use it. Secondly, the deck upstairs is filthy with loose railings and nails coming out of the deck , there is a staircase with no gate - so not suitable for young children. The home is very close to the beach but it’s fairly dated and needs work. Not worth the price.
We apologize if the separate third bedroom came as a surprise; we have updated our listing to better reflect the layout. We do have a contractor scheduled to fix the deck. Thank you!

I stayed here with my two daughters and their baby sons in November, 2014. The location of the house was conveniently across the street from the trolley stop and a short walk down the street to a beautiful beach. The house is located on the corner of Peppertree and the main road. I imagine that, with the AC on, one would not notice the traffic. The house was decorated pleasantly, both upstairs and in the ground-level unit. One window in the master bedroom would not stay up and needed a dowel to hold it up. One of the windows in the LR, once opened, would not close. One of the sliding doors to the deck was difficult to open and close, and did not have a working locking mechanism. This was very quickly remedied with one phone call. I called this house a "gem in the rough." It is in a lovely area of Anna Maria on a well-kept street. It is near the trolley stop and close to the Gulf beach. The setup of the house is great, with the main living space upstairs, and the studio apartment downstairs (We put my daughter with her infant in the studio apartment downstairs!). The rental agency, Island Real Estate, was a pleasure to work with and responded very promptly to my telephone call. I would certainly seek their services again. For a multitude of reasons, my daughters and I liked the property and we hope that the mentioned issues will be addressed so that "Sandy's Getaway" can live up to her potential. If so, we would have no problem selecting that house again for an Anna Maria vacation.
