Gorgeous home with WiFi, private heated pool, sun deck, & backyard

Decorated in calming hues of blue and green reminiscent of the nearby Gulf waters, this lovely vacation home is an excellent choice for your next beach getaway. While this rental is one-half of a duplex, you'll enjoy private access to a variety of amenities including a sun deck and a sparkling, heated pool with a swim-up tiki table! And if you'd like to bring your boat, Keyes Marina is close by.

This centrally located home is close to some of the best attractions on Anna Maria Island. You'll be just a few blocks from public beach access, and north of the quaint Holmes Beach city center. Ride the island's free trolley to explore the beaches, shopping, and dining outside your immediate neighborhood, or pull your car out of this home's three-vehicle parking.

In the evening, explore the island's many local restaurants, or dine in and take advantage of the kitchen's granite countertops, stainless-steel appliances, and dishwasher! Enjoy your meal at the dining room table or the breakfast bar, or head out to your backyard, where you'll find plenty of seating, a propane grill, and a lounge area complete with a TV! Free WiFi keeps you connected during your stay here, and the upstairs bedroom has its own balcony, so you can take in your own private corner of the ocean air.

Reserve this home for your next island-style vacation!

Nice location and very nice ammenities
Sydney F. Sep 2022
This place was built with great potential. Just needs a deep clean, upkeep and something done about the washer/ dryer situation. When we showed up the place had a very strong musty mildew smell. Part of the issue is the washer and dryer are right in the middle of the very small living space. The washer is black with mildew. Also, it just needs a deep cleaning overall. We found onions and garlic sitting under the sink. The oven was dirty with pans that where burnt. The pool is nice to have but with the elements, you need someone to blow and clean it from time to time.
Manager response:

The house was very clean and decorated beautifully. Beds were super comfortable. Close to everything we wanted to do. House had everything we needed.

What an outstanding vacation! This home was immaculate, beautifully decorated and convenient to restaurants and stores. The pool and hot tub were meticulously maintained and heated as well. The backyard landscaping made us feel as if we were at a resort. The beach is located within walking distance where we enjoyed relaxing during the day (when not in the pool) and beautiful sunsets in the evening. When not eating out, the kitchen had ample plates, cutlery etc. We felt right at home and we would definitely recommend staying here!!

The house was overall pretty good for our family. The location was great, the pool was wonderful and we enjoyed our vacation.

The bedrooms and bathrooms were all nice for our family, but the living room is very small. There is plenty of outdoor space to relax, but the two loveseats in the living room do not provide enough indoor seating for the number of people the house can sleep.

The kitchen has plenty of room, but needs some improvements. Although there are many dishes, pots and pans, there is only one skillet that is 5”. The rest are pots and appliances that are not particularly helpful for everyday cooking while on vacation. One of the burners on the stove is also broken and there is not mention of that as something to avoid using. It would also be helpful to know that you can’t use the soap dispenser on the dishwasher because it doesn’t open during the cycle and dishwasher pods need to be placed on the bottom of the dishwasher to effectively clean.

Lastly, although there is a laundry unit in the house, it is a front loader washer that is kept in a closed closet in the small living room. Since the front loader is kept closed at all times there is a significant amount of mold in the washing machine, which makes it unusable. It would be better to not advertise the laundry than keep this unit in the house.

The location of this home is amazing! The home itself is amazing! We loved our stay!

Loved the pool and hot tub. Outdoor spaces were great.
Linette P. Sep 2021
The house had great ambiance and was extremely comfortable.
Jessica B. May 2021
Wonderful home, pool is awesome and location is pretty good. House could have been slightly cleaner but it was okay. Beds are comfy and Vacasa was very responsive. Definitely rent your own beach chairs, mat, wagon etc. house has some but they’re pretty old. Overall would definitely come back.
Cassandra B. Mar 2021
We loved our week long stay at Time for the Sea rental. It was clean and modern and the location was perfect. A short walk to the most beautiful beach and close to restaurants and shops. After a quick trip to the store for some essentials we started our family vacation. We used the outdoor area a lot, eating our meals at the table, lounging, swimming and grilling. The backyard is private and quiet. We also had trouble entering the home with the keypad lock, but a call to the office was answered and we were helped to enter the home. I'm not sure what the issue is with the lock, but we had to use a set of keys the entire week. It wasn't enough to cause us to not thoroughly enjoy this wonderful home and our family time. Thank you!

The home was perfect for the 6 of us over thanksgiving. Would stay again.

Other than we couldn’t get in to the house Saturday like we were supposed to because the lock wasn’t working I called Vacasa- thinking they have a local office in Anna Maria so no problem. Ha HUGE problem my call was sent to there call center in Orlando. They could not get a hold of any of the local office people at Vacasa Anna Maria (they tried 4 people) was on the phone will the call center for 2 hours Saturday night and got no where with them they said they couldn’t do anything because they couldn’t get a hold of the local office and they aren’t authorized to do anything without talking to them. They told me to get a hotel room so I did because I had 3 kids with me...and we already went grocery shopping for the week before we got to the house. So I had groceries that needed to be refrigerated😡 Sunday morning called again just got the call center no one local would pick up. Finally at 10:00 they were able to get a hold of the local agent. He met us at the house and never said no I’m sorry just said “your going to feel embarrassed because the handle lock was locked from the inside and wouldn’t move apparently you take any key and push it the button and turn.” Well maybe you would have answered your phone last night you could have told us!!! Will never ever rent from Vacasa again. The house Nice and clean, small living room, cold showers, door lock key pad quit working half way through trip, no sun in the back yard completely shaded-so made swimming cool.

I highly recommend this beach rental. The property was perfect for our family of five (three teens, my husband and I) to stay for the week and not have to be near too many people, which was important to us given current COVID-19 concerns. The private backyard pool area is awesome and extremely relaxing; kitchen is fun to cook in and outfitted with most everything you need (no cookie sheets or roasting pan that we could find but otherwise well stocked), and there is a Publix just two miles away. When we did want to venture out, there were several great restaurants nearby that offered takeout as well as good eat-in social distancing options. There are also lots of cute shops close by and the walk (or bike ride) to the beach is lovely. The property was clean, nicely decorated, and the bedding is extremely comfortable with plenty of extra pillows, blankets and also towels, should you need them. Great bathrooms, as well, except one ding: water pressure on first level seemed a bit low. Two additional minor inconveniences: as mentioned in previous reviews, toiletries were limited (we came prepared with our own toilet paper, soap and paper towels so it wasn’t a big deal), and WiFi was spotty which made it tough to stream movies. That said, none of those minor issues were a big deal.
One word of advice: definitely rent bikes or a golf cart to make your stay more pleasant. Traffic on the island was heavier than we expected so we were grateful to not have to drive very much. Overall, we give Time for the Sea five stars — and we’ll definitely be back!

My family and I just returned from a weeks stay at Time for the sea. The house was laid out perfectly for our family. We had 3 adults and 4 kids and it fit our needs wonderfully. The kids absolutely loved the backyard oasis. It truly was like a mini resort in the backyard with ample shade as well as peaks of sun for those who wanted to sunbathe. The house had all the essentials to prepare meals at home. The only issue we had, and it was minor, was the TV out by the pool didn't work. We called maintenance and they came the very next day to service it. Unfortunately the TV was broken and unable to be fixed. They were very gracious and tried. It in no way affected our trip as there were numerous Tvs throughout the home. The home is nicely located to a public beach and plenty of restaurants, shops, and even an amazing ice cream shop within walking distance. It was hard to leave as it was the best beach house we've ever rented. We are already looking to book our next stay! Thanks vacasa for a memorable week!!
Kevin B. Jun 2020
We loved the house! The pool area had plenty of shade for the kids but still had plenty of son for the adults. The outside TV was not working during our week. We had sound but the screen would not show anything.
Jill S. Jun 2020
We couldn’t have asked for a more perfect vacation home! Other than having trouble getting into the house, we were so impressed! Top to bottom! The pool had a little debris in it and we didn’t know about the filtering system. Perfect location, great beach chairs, floats for the pool and umbrellas! One request is more laundry detergent (which we brought our own), paper towels and dishwasher detergent.
Malerie A. Oct 2019
This house was perfect for our family vacation! The pool was awesome! Pretty well shaded so we didn’t have to worry about the kids getting burnt. And the outdoor living room area was awesome for some poolside football viewing! Had to buy our own “essentials” (TP, paper towel, Kleenex, dish soap, laundry soap) since there wasn’t much in the house for a whole weeks stay. But the house ended up having plenty of pools floaties, beach chairs, toys and a wagon which was great!
stuart L. Aug 2019
My only negative feedback would be that it was very dusty in places - under the settees and on the window ledges.

I would recommend this place.

Kind Regards

Kate M. Apr 2019
We loved the house? Great bedrooms and the pool area is so great! Especially the outdoor tv!
Deb M. Mar 2019
The home is beautiful and is in a great location. Short walk to the beach. The pool was warm and the outdoor area is amazing! Just wish it had a weeks supply of TP, paper towels, dishwasher soap and laundry soap.
Robert V. Mar 2019
Well stocked home, nice amenities, beautifully furnished, loved the pool area.
John M. Apr 2018
Just returned from a fantastic week at Time for the Sea. We loved the quality of the home and the way it's professionally decorated. Very comfortable sleeping arrangements, and an awesome backyard set up! Enjoyed watching the NCAA championship game from the hot tub! Certainly hope to return next April.

"We loved our stay. This home is so lovely! Check in and check out was so simple! We were so thankful for the pack & play! Our little grandson spent all his nights sleeping soundly! The pool toys were a blast, especially the floating baby raft. The pool temperature was perfect for our whole stay and we did not miss a day in the hot tub! The kitchen was completely outfitted, which fit our needs perfectly since we ate most meals in house. The floating baby raft quickly became a favorite as was the outdoor TV!! The owners were wonderful in the quick and clear way they answered all our questions. Everything was just as they said! Publix was very close and we even took the trolley to shop there. We used the washer and dryer and were very, very glad to have it. The walk to the beach was just 3 blocks, and the walk to the trolley north, just one block! The restaurant nearby played music that promptly ended as scheduled and could only be heard outside. The furnishings were lovely and we all want to go back! Thanks for a wonderful stay!! We hope to be back again soon!"

"What a perfect spot to meet with extended family for Christmas! We are planning to return in two years for another stay!"

"Our family spent a week in August at Time for the absolutely gorgeous house at one of our favorite beaches. We can’t say enough good things about our time here and the very thoughtful owner! The online photos for this house were so beautiful that we hoped we weren’t setting our sights too high.....and we were not disappointed! It was even more beautiful in person, including every last decorating detail. The luxurious and beachy atmosphere put our family in vacation mode as soon as we pulled in the driveway and it only got better from there! The house had everything we needed for the beach: towels, cooler, cart, chairs, umbrella, water toys, etc. The kitchen was beautiful and stocked great for cooking dinners and serving them up on beautiful dishes along with a tropical cocktail! The beds were so comfy and the linen service was a great touch too. We absolutely LOVED the tropical outdoor living space and pool area! Enjoyed breakfast outdoors on the deck, and spent late afternoons and evenings in the pool (tiki table) and spa. In fact, we may have actually spent more time there than at the beach! The owner was just a delight to work with and went above and beyond to accommodate us. We could tell how much she cares about their home and how much they wanted us to enjoy it too! We can't wait to return to Anna Maria Island and their beautiful beach home! Everything about TIme for the Sea told us Relax .... enjoy your vacation at the beach!"

We stayed for a week in July at Time for the Sea and loved every minute of our stay, both at the house and at Anna Maria Island. There was plenty of room for our group of seven, two adults and five kids. The house was amazing! It had everything we needed and plenty of room for all. It had a great mix of indoor and outdoor living space too. The pool and hot tub was the perfect place to cool off and relax when we weren't at the beach. The beaches were beautiful and very accessible. Shops, restaurants, the grocery, were all nearby. We truly enjoyed out time at AMI and at Time for the Sea. My only regret was only having a week to be there.

We spent a week in August at Time for the Sea. There were six of us including two children. Plenty of room for everyone to stretch out and enjoy! From opening the front door, the tranquil blues and aquas of the professionally decorated interior put us totally in vacation mode. The house was beyond our expectations, the owners thought of everything! I cannot think of one thing that was missing from the kitchen, there was even a lobster pot! Beds were super comfortable, beautifully soft sheets from the linen service made us feel like we were in a very expensive hotel. Towels folded in designs in the bathrooms, soap, toilet paper and tissues provided in each, also plenty of beach towels. In the garage we found beach chairs, umbrella and a beach wagon! Plenty of pool toys in the outside coffee table. That outside room was our favorite, there was always a breeze, even in the hot August weather. It was a great place for all of us to gather at different times of the day. It was a very pleasant short walk to the beautiful AMI beaches, perfect white sand and turquoise water! We could walk to the library and numerous restaurants and shops and the trolley stop is right there also. The backyard is so relaxing at night with drinks around the in-pool cocktail table or sitting in the spa. We have decided that Anna Maria Island is our new favorite! (Can you tell how much we enjoyed it!?!?) Thank you to the very pleasant owners who answered every question. You can tell how much they love their vacation home. We did too!

We returned last night from our week long stay at a Time for the Sea. There were 5 of us, 2 adults and 3 teens. This house could not have been more perfect for our family. From the minute we walked into the house our expectations were exceeded. The house is brand new, beautifully decorated and looked like we were the first people to ever step into it!!! Each bedroom had a flat screen TV, perfect for the teens. The kitchen was appointed with every pot, pan, and small appliance you could ask for. The backyard is resort like, with a stunning pool, spa, a beautiful outdoor covered room with TV and couch perfect for late afternoons when you return from the beach. The deck which overlooks the patio and pool, houses the grill and outdoor eating area. In addition to all the these amenities, there were beach chairs, a wagon and lots of pool/beach toys! The house is approximately a 5 minute very easy walk to the beach. The photos of this property are a great but the house is actually nicer. This was our first time to Anna Maria Island and we were thrilled with the experience. The owner was AMAZING to work with from the initial contact to our arrival at the house, she made the entire experience a great one!!!! AND shared some great recommendations for us to visit on the island. We will be back.
