If you are looking for a truly relaxing beach get-a-way, Barney's Bungalow is THE place to be! Located on a narrow part of the island you can see the water in either direction. Enjoy an evening cocktail on the deck while watching the sun set over the Gulf Of Mexico or watch the sun rise over the bay while sipping coffee!

This unit is on stilts with shady parking & a large screened in porch underneath. You will find plenty of extra parking space for cars or a boat. One of the most loved features is the private, outdoor shower & dressing room. Perfect after a day at the beach! In the adjacent utility room you will find a full size washer & dryer & a bar-b-q grill, beach wagon, umbrellas, chairs, rafts & toys.

For your indoor entertainment there are three flat screen t.v.'s, stereo, DVD, CD & wireless internet.

You are literally less than a block from the beach & two blocks from a waterfront park, offering basketball, playground & a new kayak launch. Just around the corner on Gulf Drive is a Trolley stop. This is a free trolley that runs the length of Anna Maria Island providing fun access to shopping & dining. You can walk to the historical Bridge Street area & pier with its many restaurants & shops.

We found our beach get-a-way while out driving around one nasty, rainy weekend. While at a stop sign I looked down to see a 'For Sale' sign that had blown up against it. Curiosity got us & we called the number (hoping it was for the duplex we were sitting next to). Sure Enough! It has turned out to be the perfect spot for walking to the beach and enjoying all that the 'Island Life' has to offer.

Laura Barnes purchased this house in 2009

Growing up in central Florida, about an hour & a half away, Anna Maria Island was an easy decision for us. We love the west coast sunsets, the warm, calm waters and the abundance of wildlife. Anna Maria Island is a small community of beach houses and condos. It is one of the few places you can go to without high rise hotels or fast food joints. There is a great 'vibe' on this island & a it's wonderful place to stay. We are always amazed and smile about at seeing how many families are spending time together.

Enjoying the sunset at the end of each day. Fabulous dining, bar-b-q's on the patio, bike riding, kayaking, shelling, walking & just being outdoors. Shopping at St. Armands Circle or the little island boutiques. Boating, Fishing & Just Relaxing!

We loved Barney's Bungalow--the location was incredible--a short walk to the beach and close to a playground, as well as restaurants. The house was comfy and clean, with an updated beach atmosphere. The owners were very friendly and helpful. We loved the screened porch with tables, lawn furniture, and lighting, perfect for entertaining our family in the area. We found everything we needed in the kitchen, including a crock-pot! All kinds of beach equipment was available from chairs, to a giant wagon, children's toys, etc. We had a great time and would love to return!

Great Experience

The condo far exceeded our expectations!!! It was extremely nice and well kept. Great location with the bay on one side and the ocean only a block away. It was very quaint and relaxing. The owners (Laura and Jeff) were very accommodating and helpful which is a huge plus when you're coming from so far. They literally provide everything from toiletries, towels, and dishes to beach chairs, cooler, and a wagon to haul it all!! I can't say enough good things!! It was absolutely wonderful!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your wonderful review! We were delighted you selected Barney's Bungalow for your visit to Anna Maria Island! We were also pleasantly surprised when the bride in your party called me to compliment us on how nice your place was and wondered if we had another unit for her and the groom! We hope you will find your way back in the near future.

Sincerely,
Jeff & Laura

would defiantly recommend

Property was even better than described. The house has everything you need and furnished to a very high standard. We loved walking the 2 minutes to the beautiful beach using the trolley to take the chairs, cooler and umbrella. The house is in a lovely part of the island and the free trolley bus is ideal for getting around to the restaurants ( the stop is even closer than the beach!) I think the house is usually rented by Americans but we are from the UK and would defiantly recommend staying here, as house is lovely and neighbourhood is very quiet. We appreciated that Laura let us stay longer than the 11 check out as our flight was not until 8pm. We will hopefully be back soon.
Owner's Response: Thank you so much! It was lovely to meet you and we are very happy to know how much you enjoyed your stay! We really appreciate your taking the time to write such a positive review!

wish I lived at the beach

This was our first trip to Anna Maria Island, but definitely not our last. I spent hours researching condos and decided on Barneys Bungalow because of the location and beach amenities provided. It was the best decision I have made when picking a condo on VRBO, and I have done it many times!! The condo was immaculate and the owners have really gone above and beyond to make your stay as enjoyable and convenient as possible. They even went out and got a bed rail for my 3 year old and had it waiting on us when we arrived!!!! The location is fantastic, such an easy walk to the beach in one direction, bay and playground the other way. What stood out the most to us was the beach equipment provided, from tents and chairs to coolers, toys, rafts and even a wagon to tote it all there. There were tons of beach towels and even sunscreen. Everything you need for a day at the beach. The only thing you have to bring from home is a bathing suit. The outdoor shower was a huge convenience for keeping sand out of the condo and my girls thought it was so fun to take a shower outside. On our next visit to Anna Maria Island I wont even look at other options. Barneys Bungalow will be our only pick and we will schedule our vacation around its availability, that's how good it really is. You will not be disappointed!!!

Owner's Response: Wow, Jamie!
We were so delighted that you selected our place after sifting through so many choices! When you arrived I was really touched to see that your family drove so far with two little ones just to stay at Barney's Bungalow. Also, I knew you had been a long journey and you were all tired and ready to get out of the car! It made us smile how everyone made a beeline to check out the beach. Then, we pretty much never saw you again!! We are glad you had such a great time and look forward to your next visit. Jeff & Laura

One could not ask for anything more from a place to enjoy a wonderful vacation at the beach. Very well kept, wonderful bed, great showers both indoors and out. Don't bother to bring any beach chairs, umbrellas or floats with you because this place has everything. It even has a nice pull wagon to transport all your toys for your 2 minute walk to the beach. The owners are very nice and helpful.
