Overview

Anna Maria Cottage Rental Photos and Description

2 Master Suites, 1 King and 1 Queen & Two Twins

If you are looking for that Old Florida feel, Beach Basket is located on Oak Ave which dead ends to the white sand beaches and the perfectly clear waters of Anna Maria Island. You are just 5 homes or a 53 second walk to relaxation and sunshine! Built in 1920, this home was restored recently by the owner who is a professional decorator keeping with the classic cottage look. The detail in this home is incredible, from ceiling accents to bead board cabinets with glass doors to the comfortable furnishings by the Pink Pineapple.

The beachy feel continues into both the king master suite with a seating area that leads to the bright and sunny master bath and the queen suite which has a private entrance to the pool area where you will find citrus trees including an Avocado tree and rich tropical landscaping.

Having an occasional guest or bringing the kids? The air conditioned sleeping porch with 2 twins is a perfect place for them or a perfect nook for you to relax and enjoy a good book and a frozen cocktail! Beach Basket is one of our most popular homes so book well in advance to find out why!!

Just wanted to thank you for allowing us to stay at the Beach Basket! From the minute we walked into the door we felt right at home. Such a cozy & inviting cottage and decorated so adorably! We loved the short walk to the beach and to near by restaurants. We also loved walking our dog Charlie on the sidewalks along the beach. The pool was so refreshing and beautifully landscaped. We didn't want to go home. We loved our vacation and would love to come back. Thanks again! Mark & Michaelanne

It was of course our pleasure to have you at the Beach Basket and we are thrilled that you felt comfortable in our little cottage. Glad Charlie enjoyed himself on his walks and hope you all come back to enjoy the beach, the pool and the great restaurants on Anna Maria Island!

Our Visit

  • 5 of 5
We had the best time celebrating our 40th wedding anniversary at the Beach Basket! When we drove up to the cottage, it instantly felt welcoming, well kept, and beautifully landscaped! The interior looks just as cute as the pictures show, and we love how it is decorated. Every room is beautifully furnished and comfortable too. There is plenty oF closet space and drawers in each bedroom, and our bed was very comfortable. Even though we didn't bring kids, we know that kids of all ages would enjoy the sleeping porch in the front. I loved the kitchen, and was happily surprised by how well equipped it is, from the dishes, pots and pans, glassware, serving pieces, appliances... Anything you would ever need, plus more, was available. Preparing meals was a breeze in there, and it was great to have a gas grill in the backyard too! The wood floors throughout were not only pretty, but practical for dogs! I even enjoyed doing laundry in the nice stackable washer and dryer when I had to!
Now to the backyard...it was awesome! Beautifully landscaped fenced in yard with a great pool that lights up at night! Great for dogs, and people of all ages! When we weren't at the beach, we were hanging out by the pool. And the outdoor shower was enclosed, very handy, and quite nice!!
And then there is the beach! I can't say enough about the beach! So close, right at the end of the quiet street.... A very short walk to a little piece of Heaven. The beach was beautiful, with soft white sand, and almost seemed to be private. Since there are no high rises on the island, it is really quiet and peaceful. Great for watching the sunsets at night too!
And then there are the many unique restaurants and shops within walking distance! We especially enjoyed walking along the beach to the Sandbar for dinner by the water! There is even a sidewalk along the beach for walking dogs or strolling to the shops and restaurants!
We can't say enough about our stay at the Beach Basket. It was a perfect vacation! Thank you for sharing your place with us, and also for surprising us with the anniversary card! :). We hope to be back soon for more fun!

Owner's Response: Richard and Sandy,
What a perfect place to celebrate your 40th anniversary! What more could you as for than the Beach Basket and Anna Maria Island with the love of your life?
By the mention of the fully equipped kitchen we see that you had to cook on your anniversary! Hopefully that is something you enjoy!
The location is also one of my favorite things about Beach Basket so we are glad you discovered the great restaurants within walking distance.
Come back and see us for your 41st and bring your lovely Golden along!

Adorable Cottage within steps to the beach.

  • 5 of 5
We greatly enjoyed our time at the Beach Basket. The home was nicely decorated. You cannot beat the location--We were just a few steps to the beautiful beach of Anna Maria. The location on the beach was not crowded. The home was adorable with everything you needed with the exception of a few extra washclothes. The bathrooms were a little small and the sleep porch was a little warm at times but other that it was perfect. We loved the pool and outdoor shower also. Beach chairs and sand toys were also provided. Thanks for the wonderful stay. This is our fourth year coming to the island and the closest we have ever been to the beach.

Glad you enjoyed the Beach Basket and its proximity to the beach is one of the best features! We will of course take care of adding more wash clothes for your next visit and check out the temp on the porch but that late afternoon sun sometimes is hard to control!! Come back to visit soon!

We had a great time at the beach basket, great location walked to the sandbar, half block
to the beach. The only thing we would of liked is a better umbrella or a tent would of been really nice. Pool was nice after coming off the beach.

Owner's Response: Toni,
So glad you enjoyed your stay at the Beach Basket! Unfortunately, umbrellas are one of those items that we just can't keep in good working order for our guests even though we replace them on a very regular basis. If you prefer a tent a lot of guests rent them from Beach Bums who will deliver and pick up any rental items. We will be glad to work with you on your next visit to accommodate you! See you soon!

What an amazing 2 weeks!

  • 4 of 5
We absolutely LOVED the "Beach Basket" cottage. The attention to detail with furnishings and needed beach supplies were outstanding. We really enjoyed grilling at home while swimming in the pool right in our back yard. I can't say enough about the convenient short walk to the beach. LOVE LOVE LOVE!
If you are bringing a boat to Anna Maria we can't say enough about the convenience to the nearby marina. We were able to access our boat anytime. Fishing, sunset cruising and just having fun with our family.
Bob with the management company was amazing! We ran out of gas to the grill and he came over immediately to replace the gas tank. Later, once I arrived home and unpacked I noticed I left an entire drawer of clothes. I called Bob and he immediately confirmed the left clothing and it arrived within 2 days!

Owner's Response: Olga and Family,
It sounds like you made the most of your vacation with boating, swimming and grilling around the pool. That is exactly what the Beach Basket is for….relaxation!! Sorry to hear you ran out of gas on the grill but glad Bob was there to handle the situation for you on this and on the left behind clothing. We are thrilled with Ellie and Bob and glad you are too!! Come back to visit us any time.

Beach Basket Paradise

  • 4 of 5
We LOVED our stay at the Beach Basket. So much that we didn't want to leave. The location was perfect... just a short walk to the beach. We walked home from the beach for lunch, which gave us a nice break from the sun. We didn't have to lug a cooler to the beach, although if we had to, it would've been easy to do.

The photos were completely accurate. The decorating was awesome. We even hope to do some of the same decorating at our home. The art was great and it was nice an cozy. The books gave us great beach reading, the pool was fabulous in the evening, Loved it!

The property was clean, except the pool gets dirty really quickly, but, we cleaned it ourselves with the net. I would say the only downside was the entry door knobs are old and broken. We had to fix the back door one to get our key in and turn the knob to get in. The kitchen has sparse utensils for cooking. But, we were able to figure it out. I would only suggest some cleaning supplies to keep up with daily cleaning during the week. Just a bottle of 409 would be great!

I have already recommended this property to my relatives!

We just loved everything about Anna Maria. If you can get a boat, get out into the water and explore Egmont Key and the Sand Bar in the ocean. It's amazing. We also went clamming and ate them for dinner.

Wonderful time and memories made! Thank you!

Owner's Response: Erin,
It is a great feature to be able to be close enough to wander home for lunch. We do the same! Glad you enjoyed the decor and if you are interested, the furnishings come from The Pink Pineapple.
It is a dilemma on the pool area. It is great to have the privacy the foliage affords us but it then means leaves in the pool. When asked most guests prefer the privacy and they don't mind skimming the leaves so we have left it that way.
Thanks for the input about the door knob and about the utensils. We will have both addressed immediately and we are certainly happy to provide cleaning products for guests like you that want to clean!!
Thank you so much for taking such good care of the Beach Basket. It is much appreciated!

This home is located on Anna Maria Island, a quaint barrier island nestled in the Gulf of Mexico south of Tampa Bay. Here is one of the only places you can find where the 'old' Florida charm still exists. Seven miles of pristine white beaches awaits you and beautiful sunsets grace the island with their presence every night. The Island has every convenience needed including a Publix grocery store, CVS pharmacy, and Walgreens. There are multiple award winning restaurants that call the island home, such as the Beach Bistro, Sandbar, Beachhouse, and Sign of the Mermaid. Others not to miss are Rod and Reel Pier, Anna Maria City Pier, and Ginny and Jane-e's at the Old IGA. There is plenty of shopping available with hot spots such as the historic Pine Ave and Bridge Street areas. With the beach and the bay just minutes away from your front door, there is plenty to do in the water. Kayaking, snorkeling, fishing, jet-skiing, paddle boarding, and para-sailing are popular activities around Anna Maria Island. With the Island only being seven miles long, there is no need to drive when almost everything is within walking or biking distance. There is also a convenient Trolley Service that runs the length of the Island every day, and is free for everyone to ride. Anna Maria Island has something for everyone, and everyone who comes to visit falls in love with the Island, we are sure you will too.
