Overview

Anna Maria House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths (Sleeps 7)

'South Cay' (www.SouthCay.com) is an absolutely beautiful house on Anna Maria Island, located in Anna Maria (not in Holmes Beach). There are only 11 houses between South Cay and the Gulf of Mexico beach, so this property is very close to the beach. Walk out the house, look to your right, and you see the beach access.

In addition, this is probably the nicest section of the beach on the island.

South Cay is also close to Anna Maria's charming island shopping area (Pine Avenue), which means you can stroll to a breakfast place or the ice cream parlor, and walk to shops and stores.

South Cay has 4 bedrooms and 2 and a half baths. The house is in mint condition. The master bedroom has a high-end super comfortable new king-size bed. In addition, there are two queens, and a single.

South Cay has a screened front porch, a screened master bedroom side deck that leads to a larger rear deck, and a 3rd floor screened rear deck.

There are four flat panel TVs of various sizes, cable, wireless high-speed internet, and free phone use within the US.

The new pool is large (14 feet X 28 feet). RECOMMENDATION: Ask for pool sizes when comparing rental properties. Few have a pool this size!

South Cay also comes with free NETFLIX access, allowing you to select and view movies (available on the main TV).

City Park?: Some guests pointed out that on Google map the beach at the end of Palmetto Ave is marked as 'city park'. There is no 'park', but there is a wildlife preserve section on the beach where turtles live. You cross it on a wooden walkway as you access the beach. The beach is the beautiful Gulf beach. See last two pictures of this posting. These are pictures of the beach at the end of Palmetto Ave.

We keep upgrading South Cay, so there may be small differences in decorations and furniture between the pictures posted and the actual house at the time of your rental.

South Cay is a 'NO-PETS, NO-SMOKING' property.

South Cay - February 2015

  • 5 of 5

Very clean beautiful house. Our week at South Cay was quite cold so we did not get to use the pool or go outdoors very much. But it was a very pretty backyard and pool area. It would be nice if the waterfall stayed on a little longer in the afternoons. The front porch was fantastic. We spent most of our time out there. The bedrooms and kitchen area were comfortable and welcoming. It was very close to all of the restaurants and Anna Maria shopping. We were able to walk everywhere and catch the trolley to other parts of the island. The beach access was easy and opened up to a nice part of the beaches of Anna Maria Island. Would definitely recommend to anyone. The owners are very responsive and kind.

Terrific Rental

  • 5 of 5

This is a terrific rental, the location could not be better for a house just off the beach, perfect location for someone who wants to park their car and walk to the beach, restaurants, shopping for the rest of their vacation. Great for families and kids. Owner was very accomodating, house was spic and span clean, pool is full size, heated, and wonderfully landscaped. A+ rental.

Great location--Great house--Great pool

  • 5 of 5

This great location in Anna Maria is an easy walk to the gulf beach with the provided beach cart complete with sand toys and beach chairs. We saw lots of dolphin, stingrays and even a turtle as we walked across the wooden boardwalk to the beach. Within 4 blocks of this house are several eateries, bars and quaint shops. After arrival, we did not get back into our car until time to leave. There are several FREE trolley stops within 2 blocks providing transportation to the city pier and Tampa Bay as well as the entire length of AnnaMaria Island, stopping at several other beaches, shopping areas, grocery store, and restaurants. The convenient location of this home with its beachy decor is also quiet. The kitchen had plenty of small appliances and all the equipment you would need. The master bedroom and bath were large and very nice. The porches were so relaxing! In the evenings we enjoyed the lighted tropical back yard and large pool. This was one of the most relaxing and comfortable vacations we have had. The pictures and descriptions of South Cay are right on. Beatrice was always very helpful and accommodating to this nervous first time VRBO renter. I would certainly rent South Cay again and have already recommended it to others!

Perfect house for three generations

  • 5 of 5

We can only agree with the other persons that have reviewed South Cay. It is a lovely house in a very good location on the island. Close to the beach and walking distance to many restaurants and coffeshops and a bar on the corner and still very quiet. We are a family of 7, 3 generations, that spent 2 weeks in the property. The house, with lots of space for everybody, was perfect for us. The house really gives you the summer holiday feeling you want even if it is cold, rainy and windy ouside. The kids loved the beach toys that were left in the pool room. We had a problem with the hot water that we found a bit cold, but we spoke to Beatrice and the next day she arranged for a plumber to come around and adjust the temperature.

We can strongly recommend South Cay and we would like to come back some time.

Perfect home

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this property for the week of July 12, while one of our daughters played tennis at IMG. It was our first visit to Anna Maria Island, but definitely not our last. We fell in love with the area and are even considering to buy a place there.

The home is beautiful. The decor is cheerful and "beachy" with plenty of room for everyone. We are a family of 6, with two 4 year olds and 2 teenagers. The large pool is fantastic and we spent many hours enjoying it. The kitchen was well stocked with extras and we definitely appreciated having the washer/dryer.

The ocean is a 3 minute walk across the street and even in the heat of July was amazing. I don't think I have ever seen a more beautiful beach (even in Europe) with white sand and clear water. It was perfect for little ones. Could not ask for a better location. We were within walking distance to all of the little shops, restaurants and bike rentals.

Overall it was an amazing vacation on Anna Maria Island and we will definitely be back to this home.

Great location and property!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at this beautiful home. Very cozy decor and lots of space for our family (4 adults and 2 kids). Loved that we could easily walk to the beach and to the Pine Ave shops. Close to a great cafe and ice cream too :)
