Absolutely loved this beach house and all of the amenities! It just had everything you could imagine needing for your vacation. Even though we did not travel with small children, the house was well-equipped for them. It was great not having to pack our own beach chairs and cart. Very short walk to the beach. We had a problem with the air conditioner toward the end of our stay, but the property manager returned our after hours call promptly and arranged for a service technician to come out and fix the problem. It was excellent customer service. Our only complain about the house would be that the ice maker did not make nearly enough ice for our group. (We had 7). An easy fix would be to grab a bag of ice when buying groceries to have a bit extra. We were very very pleased with this house and hope to visit again!

Beach Retreat was fabulous! Everything you could need or want in a beach house! Location is great, very short and easy walk to the beach, about 7 houses away. The inside of the house is large, open, and beautifully decorated. Beds are really comfortable. The kitchen is FULLY stocked! It even comes with salt, pepper, tons of spices, crock pot, blender, food processor, can opener, and lots of cooking utensils. The elevator was a nice added bonus for carry up groceries and luggage. The living room has an enormous TV and comes with a variety of movies, shows, and even XBox Game Pass that my grandsons loved! The home also has tons of board games and books. Outside by the pool— Wow! The pool is very large, private, lots of outdoor seating, nice Weber grill, and lounge chairs. The ping pong table was so fun. There are also beach toys, boards, chairs, beach cart, towels, and pool toys. I read in another review about bringing extra trash bags. I found it was helpful for us, so remember to bring a few extra kitchen trash bags, especially if you stay longer than a week.
My family enjoyed every minute and we truly felt like we were at home!

Our family of 8 had a great stay at Beach Retreat. House was fully stocked with everything we needed. Very comfortable beds. Pool area was awesome. We appreciated all the toys, chairs, wagon and canopy for the beach, which was a much closer walk than we expected. Will definitely be returning to AMI!
Rachel R. Jun 2020
This house had everything that we needed. It was so nice for us to not have to pack all of our beach gear and toys. We loved having a large private pool in our backyard. The beach access was even closer than it appeared in the photos. This was our first time visiting Anna Maria Island and we will definitely be back.

This house was so amazing from beginning to end! Unload in the garage & take it up to 1st or 2nd level with ease!!! What a treat! The house was furnished beautifully... with lots of extras you wouldn’t expect! So much beach gear in the garage & a really short walk to the beach! We can’t wait to come

First time on the island. We loved the area and the house was perfect for our family.
Daniel K. Aug 2019
This home was great! Plenty of room and great layout. Super close to the beach, and is closer than it appears in the pictures. The kitchen was super equipped and had everything you could ever imagine. We will be bringing our family back again!
Mark M. Jul 2019
Enjoyed a great week at the Beach Retreat. Everything you need for the beach, pool, kitchen is there, along with indoor entertainment as well. Honestly cannot think of a single item that was missing or anything that I would change. Thanks for a great vacation!
David G. Jul 2019
We had a wonderful family vacation and in large part due to this tremendous home. It is beautiful and had absolutely everything we needed for comfort. The pool was also awesome and there was plenty of outdoor furniture and area to relax. The kitchen was equipped with everything needed and then some. Plenty of parking. It was a very close walk to beach. This is by far, a house I/we'd definitely rent again!!!
Doug O. Jun 2019
Nice house lots of room and quality beach chairs and canopy along with nice wagon to take all to beach. Short walk to beach was great. Different layout of house but all worked out for the 8 of us
Darlene L. Jun 2019
The décor, the organization of everything, the pool, the quick response when we had a problem. Totally equipped with everything. Close to beach. Close to everything.
Melissa T. May 2019
This is the 7th house we’ve rented on Anna Maria Island. This house is by far our favorite for many reasons. Obviously, the house is gorgeous and close to the beach. Best stocked house we’ve seen. They have thought of everything! Beds are super comfortable. Location is perfect. We highly recommend it to anyone!
Mary F. Mar 2019
Loved the house. Had everything we needed and more. Short walk to the beautiful beach. Beautiful pool area. Lovely front porch. Tastefully furnished and decorated. Will definitely stay again.
Tracy S. Mar 2019
This is an absolutely wonderful 4 bedroom house. The lower level is the garage where there is access to the elevator, pool table, walk out to the backyard/pool. The main floor has the kitchen, living room, 4th bedroom with single bed/trundle underneath. The upper floor has a HUGE master (which we ended up having a kid sleep in the walk in closet (brought the trundle mattress upstairs), bedroom with queen size and third bedroom with two twins. The kitchen is fully equipped with more kitchen tools and appliances that I have at home. Tons of board games, toys, beach gear, puzzles, books. TV in every bedroom! It is a very very very well organized house; clearly loved by the owners. Walk to the beach, walk to sandbar beach/restaurant, drive/take trolley to bean point, watch the sunsets..... have yourself an epic vacation here!
Nadine K. Feb 2019
1.5 short blocks to the beach.
Ellen Y. Jan 2019
Beautifully decorated, well equipped home. Close walk to the beach. Comfortable beach chairs and all the beach toys provided. Would rent again.
Marlaine V. Aug 2018
Thank you to the owners of Beach Retreat for sharing their home with our family. The home is very beautiful and very well-appointed. We love to cook and had every convenience imagined in the kitchen. The red tide curtailed our beach time, however, the beautiful home and pool made up for this. We would rent this home again.
Jose B. May 2018
Only thing they missed was listing all the baby items they have available, i. e., pack n play and floaties. Other then that it was perfect! The kitchen is very well stocked with all you essentials...even a yester.
The house is located in a great spot. A mile from restaurants and just a block from the beach, perfect if you have kids.
Melissa W. Apr 2018
We loved the proximity to the beach. There were many nice items like an umbrella and a cart for the beach. The kitchen has ample cookware and utensils. The back deck needs to be refinished as we got some splinters on our stay. The house had plenty of room, but a strange layout where you walk through a bedroom to get to the pool. Overall, it was a nice place.
Manager response:
We are so happy the guests enjoyed their stay. It is a great property and the beach location can't be beat! Easier access to the pool can be found by taking the elevator to the ground floor. The stairs off the bedroom are for that unit's specific guests. The property manager will promptly address the condition of the deck. Thank you.

Beach Retreat was very clean, and well furnished.
Michael M. May 2017
This was our (my wife, 16-mo. old son + mother-in-law) 2nd stay at this wonderful, attractive home. There's an elevator for easy access from the 1st to top levels, a great pool as well as porches + decks. We were able to rent a crib + other items for our son from a local store. Coming from NYC, I can't emphasize enough how relaxed we feel when we get here. We can't wait to change + get into the pool. There's a spacious modern kitchen + outdoor BBQ grill. It's just 1-1/2 short blocks to the beach + conveniently located within a short driving distance to shopping & restaurants. The stop for the free trolley that travels to various parts of the island is just a short walk away. We highly recommend everything about this vacation home. We only wish we had the opportunity to stay longer + look forward to another trip back.
Meyer F. Mar 2017
House was very clean, bright and beautifully decorated. Had everything you need for the short walk to the beach...towels, chairs, toys, cooler and a wagon! Highly recommend staying here!
Fefolt F. Mar 2015
We loved this house. It had everything we needed for a wonderful vacation! It is so well taken care of both inside and out. It's very near the beach, spacious, and completely updated! Exceeded everyone's expectations. Would love to go back.
Constance W. Dec 2014
It exceeded our expectations! My son-in-law, the chef, raved about their kitchen and what they provided.
Chris S. Jul 2014
It fits all our needs. It is beautiful and spacious. So close to the beach!!
Matt S. Mar 2014
This is a beautiful property and very near the beach. The owners have thought of just about everything. The decoration of the entire house is so far superior than just about all of the other houses I considered. Island Real Estate was a pleasure to work with and in fact exceeded our expectations.
Scott Y. Mar 2014
The owners thought of everything!
