The view of Tampa Bay is beautiful from this home. I would stay here again.

Book this place today! The view is worth five stars alone, but the impeccable cleanliness, ample beach and bath towels, and two living areas made the home fantastic. Add in gorgeous grounds, heated pool, and a location you can walk to restaurants, piers, bay beach, oceanfront, and so many perfect places to spend your time!

Anna Maria proper is adorable and so is this place. Primary King bedroom is comfy, spacious, and so clean. Kitchen had what we needed and we never even saw an ant (in Florida!!!).

The washer/dryer were close by and no one was ever using them. The maintenance man, Joe, lives on property and was so kind. He always had a great recommendation for dinner or activity, and kept things so orderly. His pride in the grounds and island was palpable and catchy. We loved having a local there to chat with as we came and went; it’s a nice touch.

Would have loved some places to hang wet bathing suits and towels. Just some hooks would be great. Sunroom furniture could use some updating, but we loved the view so much we just overlooked the dated decor in that room.

Seriously you will not be disappointed- this place is perfect!!!

Marvellous location overlooking the sea - with regular sightings of dolphin etc. Very comfortable accommodation-all spotlessly clean.

The view from this unit is stunning both day and night. A great view of the Tampa Bay bridge which is lit up at night. The pier across the street is the perfect spot to sit and enjoy a quick snack and toast to the end of the day. Great location close to restaurants and shopping. Well stocked kitchen with everything we needed for the week. Pool area had plenty of seating and the heated pool was the icing on the cake.

This is our 3rd year staying at South Bay 2. The first 2 years everything was perfect. It really is a nice unit with a beautiful view. A big improvement this year is the pool is heated. They raised the rates around .+100.00/night and it’s not worth it for a 2 bed 1 bath place.

This year there was a permanent resident living in one of the units. He starts banging around making a lot of noise at midnight or later. The laundry room smelled like paint today. The smell must have come from the attached garage. The poor unit under them had to endure sanding during the day and night. The guy is doing work in his unit and the garage.

The view of the sunshine bridge and bay is unsurpassed. Nice proximity to Pine/piers. Clean! Perfect for the two of us
Stacy E. Jan 2022
Loved the views of the bay just across the road, and the easy access to the Gulf side beaches (a 12-minute walk). VERY good restaurants nearby. Free transit with Anna Maria shuttle bus to grocery store (Publix) but there is a general store very close by.
Mary S. Oct 2021
Perfection and Beauty, just two simple words to describe our experience! We had a great time! Thank you Vacasa!

Nice view

Very clean and comfortable with an amazing view.
William K. Sep 2020
Location on Anna Maria Island was great!! Beautiful view of the bay from this 2nd floor unit, and only blocks from the gulf side. Very roomy, light, clean and comfortable - such an enjoyable place to hang out, I didnt want to leave! Loved having such a nice kitchen to prepare meals when not eating out. Pool onsite was awesome bonus. Can rent bicycles nearby, choice of restaurants and shops was great (highly recommend the SandBar). So many places to rent in this area, but would definitely return and stay in this unit again. Great value!

We very much enjoyed our stay at the South Bay Inn. The number 2 unit has unforgettable views! We loved the private pool and the condo. Two small issues hold us back from a 5 out of 5. First, the front door only has one locking mechanism; on our second day the code randomly reset. We called the island reps and they were somewhat prompt (2 or so hours from the call) in coming to check on the keypad. The rep gave us a new code (and again reset itself within a few hours). We had to resort to calling the rep directly to unlock the master key box. Second, the only other small issue was the limited patio lighting (Understood given the islands sea turtle hatching habitat). Overall we had a great time and the condo was in a perfect location. Thank you!

We loved staying in this unit for our week long trip to Anna Maria Island! Here are a few things to note:

The unit is well equipped, very clean, comfortable, and stays nice and cool. The beds are fantastic and the furniture and decor is great. Linens are nice and the kitchen has everything you need.

The view is fantastic but it’s a bay view and while only 75 feet from the water, it’s not a beach you’ll want to sit at all day. You’ll need to travel to the west side of the island for that. FYI.

The location is awesome- close to great little restaurants and stores. There are two small general stores within walking distance if you need things like single rolls of toilet paper, laundry detergent, wine, etc. There is a fishing pier open Friday thru Sunday right across the street, too!

The on site pool is a great commodity when you need a break from the beach. It was green when we first arrived, which was very disappointing, but Vacasa took care of it quickly and it was better the next day.

There’s a chest full of beach toys in the unit as well as an umbrella but we did not know that going in so we spent a lot of money buying that stuff when we didn’t have to. The other units have beach chairs also, but this one did not which is unfortunate. However they do have nice beach towels so you don’t need to bring your own. Would have been good to know that ahead of time.

The laundry facility is so awesome to have - the washer and dryer are super nice. The only downside is that there are people who live full time in one of the units (maybe caretakers?) and they left their items in the washer several times and are extremely unfriendly.

All in all this was a fantastic experience and we will definitely be renting from Vacasa again!

The view and cleanliness

My family had a great time. Love Anna Maria Island. Can’t wait to go back.
Pamela J. Mar 2020
I loved the location of this condo. It had a great view of the Sunshine Skyway Bridge, and we enjoyed watching the ships enter and leave the harbor. It was also an easy walk or bike ride to many of Anna Maria’s restaurants and shops. Although the condo can sleep at least 4, 4 adults might be a bit of a challenge with one small bathroom. The condo was immaculate and the kitchen adequately equipped. There are quite a few steps to access the condo that renters need to be aware of.
Kimberly G. Jan 2020
We rented the top unit, unit #2 that overlooked the ocean. Great view, great location to all the activities. The unit was clean, presented as pictured and shown. Everything was great. If you plan on going to the beach, bring your own lawn chairs. We had a great vacation there.
Leslie P. Jan 2020
Beautiful Rental!! Amazing view, clean, will stocked kitchen, and great location. Only negative is we thought based off description washer/dryer was in unit and it was not and we were unable to locate it. However would stay here again. Don’t hesitate book it!
Manager response:
Hello Leslie, thank you for your review! We are so glad you enjoyed your stay at this home! The washer and dryer are shared amenities as noted in the listing - they are centrally located in the laundry room, which can be accessed via the code in the trip portal, or by contacting our 24-hour team. We hope to host you again soon!

Enjoyed the views over the bay through the large windows.
Convenient location,well presented and well equipped.
Carsten G. Oct 2019
If you like to have a breakfast with ocean view this apartment is not a bad choice. Very well equipped, a lot of space - and very clean. Top!
Ellen A. Oct 2019
Extremely clean and well-appointed rental at a great location. Amazing views of Tampa Bay. Very quiet. Everything we needed.
Amey G. Sep 2019
This home was so nice. It is very roomy and decorated beautifully. The location is great, with beautiful bay views and a beach on the bay across the street. The main beach is about 2 miles away.
Kathy F. Sep 2019
The Condo is very large and open, great view of the bay. Spotlessly clean. Well suited for a couple, and has a set of twin beds. Only one bathroom. Laundry was easy to access on the lower level. The only negative is the poolside chairs are very uncomfortable and the pool was not clean.
Dolphin and bird parades daily!
Jessica H. Aug 2019
By far the nicest unit I’ve stayed in. The unit was decorated beautifully and the furniture was very comfortable. The master bed mattress was so comfortable I told my husband we would need to find out the manufacture and by one. We also enjoyed watching dolphins in the bay every morning. Absolutely loved this unit and will be back.
Jamie A. Jul 2019
The view is amazing! Very updated and clean home and like having your own pool. I didn’t love that they only gave one roll of toilet paper and paper towels for week + one trash bag, so need to purchase or bring those items. Property is a great location to all the fun things on the island...the pier, the good beaches, great restaurants, shopping and ice cream! Overall very happy!
monika s. Jul 2019
We stayed there for 4 days only and we were so happy there. Everything looked exactly like it looks on the pictures. It is beautiful and spotless clean place and the view is amazing .We will be back, thank you.
Jay K. May 2019
Love the view and the accommodations, very comfortable. Can’t wait to get back next year
Jennifer B. May 2019
We loved our stay here in Anna Maria Island. This condo was such a great choice, as it provided us with the comforts a hotel could never give us. Clean, newly renovated, spacious and overall great location! We woke up every morning and had breakfast with a view. We can't wait to return next year!
Maryellen M. May 2019
We have been to Anna Marie many times but this was the first time we used VRBO to find a home. The house was exactly as pictured by Vacasa. Spacious, comfortable and cozy home with a beautiful view from the front porch. Loved the recliners and kitchen was very spacious.I knew ahead of time there were no beach chairs or umbrella so we had to buy them. A suggestion would be that these items are purchased by owner of the complex or condo for their guests to use. Other than that it was a very relaxing vacation, which is what we were looking for.
Becky R. Mar 2019
This was better than we even expected! Perfectly furnished with everything we need and the view was fantastic! The only issue we thought may be a problem for our group was a single bath but its so roomy it wasn't a problem for us! Will definitely stay again and are so happy to have found this gem!
Stephen S. Jan 2019
This is the spot to be in if you want to watch the bay and walk to everything Anna Maria has to offer. Clean and comfortable!
