The Anna Maria Community Center provides an indoor gym, tennis courts, and more, if you're feeling active. Take the free island trolley to Bradenton Beach or Holmes Beach to explore what the rest of the island has to offer.

Fantastic location. The property was immaculate. Everything from check-in to check-out was smooth and problem free. A great relaxing experience. Will definitely be coming back!

This home was exactly as described! Beautiful views and beach. So many walk-able places to eat and shop. Perfect for our quick weekend getaway! Vacasa was great to communicate with when any questions came up. Don’t hesitate to book this one!

This house is perfect for us. It might not be for everyone. It is small, old and in need of some maintenance. But the view makes it all worth any minor problems. When we did have an issue the Vacasa team took care of them immediately. What a great group of people. We have already booked for next year.

Very beautiful, comfortable home with a wonderful view! The owner left us with lots of nice extras given to make us feel Homey!

I have stayed on AMI many times and this is one of my favorite houses. It is literally steps from the water.
Randall B. Oct 2021
Quite environment and private beach is priceless if you want some alone time!
Melissa H. Oct 2021
Great stay, the view is amazing and loved having our own personal beach with a great deck! Walking distance to the City Pier, The Waterfront Restaurant and ice cream. House is older but clean and comfortable, and somewhat updated. Hall bathroom could use some updating and brighter lighting, odd walls in kitchen that would be awesome if just knocked them out and put in a big island but that’s just a personal preference ha! Would definitely stay here again as the location is perfect and the view amazing!

This was our first visit to AMI. This home was just amazing. So easy with a 5 and 3 yo. The house is also located near so many great shops and restaurants. We can’t wait to be back!

Great Stay didn’t seem to have any issues that we noticed.
Sally K. May 2021
We loved the location, the beach, the deck and the view! We've stayed here several times and although the house is older, it is very comfortable. Kitchen is well equipped.
Jamie Z. Dec 2020
The house was clean, organized, and fully stocked with linen, cleaning supplies, toiletries, kitchenware, and beach toys. The house is well-maintained and very comfortable for a family of four (or more). Even though we stayed there when it was pretty cold outside, the kids still had a blast on the beach and on the pier. If you are looking for easy access to the beach and real privacy, then this is the place for you. If you chose, you can walk through the town to restaurants, shops, and the historical district.

We stayed for 5 nights. The stay was unbelievable!! The house was very clean and the location was breathtaking!!! Definitely coming backs soon !!

A minor plumbing hiccup (outside of management’s control) was swiftly handled and generously addressed by Vacasa management team and made our stay pleasant.

The house is literally feet away from the water and everything that is advertised came to fruition (even watching dolphins play within 100 ft. from our seats.

The house is more than comfortable for a family of 4-6 people and has all the offers needed for a fine time at a beach house.

The house was very, very clean - even had a hotel feel to it with plenty of clean towels and beds. Amid “Corona” we did not feel that hygiene was a concern at all.

We had the beach all to ourselves and the access to AMI attractions are no more than 3 minutes in car or 5 minutes on golf cart.

I strongly recommend kayaking on the bay to catch the sunrise, which faces the house’s backyard. It is a beautiful, peaceful experience.

Areas of opportunity - the porch does lack lighting to hangout during evenings. Also, it has plenty of space to consider a regular size spa to chill after a day of beach. Also, I’d recommend upgrading to a newer grill.

Really made the best of our time and are grateful to the Vacasa team for their service.

Cottage is RIGHT on the beach. Step off the decking onto about ten feet of sand and into the bay waters. AWESOME.
Negatives: NO GUIDEBOOK FOR RENTERS !!! (at last we couldn't find one). Never found the switch to turn on the fan in the Florida room. Rusy old grill does not work. Several lamps had burned out bulbs. TV settings have a bit of a learning curve.

The beach. This house is right on the beach. Perfect deck, very clean, pet friendly, walking distance to shops and restaurants. Aaaaaahhhhh ..... it was perfect!
Harry R. Oct 2019
The house was the perfect size for two people. Located about 50 ft. from the bay waters. Less than 20 minute walk to the Gulf
Monica T. Sep 2019
This house is in a great location on the bay side of Anna Maria Island. The week we stayed on the island it was not busy so it was an ideal time for a get away. We really enjoyed the house and the area.

Daniel H. Feb 2019
The house is not fancy, but has everything we needed and is in an excellent location.
Sally K. Jan 2019
We loved the location and the home was very comfortable. Nice to be able to view the water on cold, windy days!
Britta Liesel K. Dec 2018
house has a nice size, a wonderful porch and a magnificent view to the bridge to Tampa. could only be improved if there would be some basic stuff for cooking like oil, salt, pepper spices and a little bit of coffee for the first morning.

Die außergewöhnliche Lage direkt am Strand haben wir sehr genossen. Es war schön abends die Ruhe draussen zu geniessen.
James M. Oct 2018
great place, privacy in a busy place, we were almost completely alone on the beach, saw very few beach goers all week. home was great. wife says one of her favorites!
Vicki S. Jul 2018
Loved the house and the bay. I loved being in the water there, I get tired of being knocked down in the gulf waves. The bay was refreshing for all of us. We loved walking out the back door and being in the sand steps from the water. We had three turtle nest's right out the back door. One nest hatched while we were there, but somehow we missed it. Nice house, great location, could use some personal touch to make it more comfortable, Bring your own pillows, trash bags, dishwasher soap and hand soap. They do provide plenty of towels. I would also suggest better mattresses or memory foam toppers, pillows and window shades.
Simon G. May 2018
Perfect if you want to be foot steps from the beach.
Christa S. Apr 2018
We loved the house. Our 96 year old Aunt loved the deck. She sat there for hours. We already booked it again for next year.
