What do you picture when you think of the perfect beach getaway? Sandcastle competitions? A fishing pier towering over deep blue waves? White sand dotted with seashells and dolphins silhouetted by the setting sun? Great seafood restaurants with character and outstanding menus? What about cozy waterfront cottages, pet-friendly homes sheltered by lush gardens, or vacation rentals located close to shopping?
Throw in a free trolley line and you have Anna Maria Island located on the gulf coast of “Old Florida”. After receiving the 2014 Traveler’s Choice Award as the #3 Island in America from Trip Advisor, people have started giving this relaxing and fun destination credit for being a quaint oasis, but it still keeps its charm and small-town feel. The seven-mile island is packed with activities, but not packed with people. Sail, fish, swim, bike, kayak, shop, and explore by day, and relax at night in one of our bright and colorful vacation rentals on the island.
Many have been recently renovated, and have luxury amenities like heated pools, king-sized beds, Wi-Fi, and fully equipped kitchens. Gather for grilling parties with your whole family or group rentals with 1-5+ bedroom accommodations, and plan on bringing four-legged friends because we offer many pet-friendly cottages and homes as well.
We want to help make your vacation unforgettable, so we go the extra mile for customer service and offer each guest concierge services like rental cleaning, baby rental items for the beach, realty services, GEM car rentals, bike rentals and grocery delivery.
