EXTREMELY CLOSE TO NICEST GULF BEACH, LARGE HEATED POOL

Anna Maria House Rental Photos and Description

4-BR very close to beach

Location, location, location. If you are looking to be close to the GULF beach, this is the one. Perfectly situated at the very desirable North End of Anna Maria Island, just steps to the Gulf of Mexico's white sugar sand beaches (the Gulf side of the island, not the bay side!). Beach Cay is very close to the beach. There is a LARGE NEW pool (14 ft X 24 ft). When you compare rental properties, ask for the pool size. Most rental properties have small pools. The house is lovely, with lots of beach house character. Two bathrooms and 4 bedrooms (2 large, two small). Five flat-panel TVs, (one in each bedroom+sitting room). There is a path across from the house that provides direct access to the GULF beach, and it's probably the nicest section of beach on the island.

HOW CLOSE IS THE HOUSE TO THE BEACH?

Look at the last two pictures. They were taken from the same spot (wide-angle, no zoom) on the path in front of the house that accesses the beach. One was taken looking towards the beach, the other one looking towards the house. The picture before these two is taken on the same path, a few steps closer to the beach.

Effective immediately (7/26/14) we are providing NETFLIX access to our guests, as part of a 3 month trial. If the experiment is successful we will extend this service.

Complete Beach Cottage

  • 5 of 5
Our experience in Beach Cay was excellent. The ease of the rental process, the response from Beatrice, and the charming beauty of the cottage was great! The house is perfectly situated on the island with great amenities. Our family loved the pool and the privacy, and the quick walk to the beach to catch a sunset or beautiful sky pattern. The cottage has a very unique history, being one of the firsts on the island - making our stay even more enjoyable. We stayed during an extremely hot week, which made the main part of the house a little warmer than our liking, but was quickly addressed when I reached out to Beatrice. She was a perfect homeowner, offering many little treats for our stay. The "give a penny, take a penny" made it much more personal than beach houses I've stayed in before, and reducing waste at the end of a trip. We left many pennies for others to enjoy, as did renters before us. You won't need to make a last minute trip as you walk in for hand soap or pepper... Look around, Beach Cay will take care of you. Thank you so much for a wonderful stay in your home!

A week in paradise

  • 5 of 5
Beach Cay proved to be the perfect prescription for a get-a-way to Anna Maria Island. The house had a wonderful feel of an 'Old Florida' retreat with all the conveniences that make time away a real pleasure. The house is across the street from the gulf beach with the beach access directly across from the front door and the beach (probably the nicest beach on the island) is very wide with very white talc-like sand that doesn't absorb the heat from the sun so that the 200 yards across the beach watching the emerald green waters approaching makes for an instant escape from any lingering thoughts of home and later a cocktail while lounging in the beautiful landscape around the large pool waiting for the BBQ gas-fired grill to be ready after a day at the beach rounded out each day blissfully.
The house is close to the Rod and Reel Pier Restaurant and fishing is a just a short stroll to Anna Maria and shops and restaurants of "downtown"

Excellent location! Very clean & updated house with many amenities. Pool is large & gorgeous as is landscaping outside. Close to beach & quiet neighborhood. No problems at all with rental! We love to cook so one suggestion may be more kitchen utensils & new pans. Very comfortable stay & definitely would rent this again!

Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5
This is the second year we have spent our family vacation at AMI. The week before we were to leave, I was getting nervous about how we would get into the house, since a door code is used instead of picking up a key someplace. But the Monday before our vacation began, I received an informative email from the owner with the door code and I was immediately put to ease. The owner also sent a list of their favorite restaurants and the list was dead on. The places we ate were very good and some of them (Star Fish) we would never have visited had it not been recommended, but it turned out to be a great place to eat!

This house was much different from the first house in that it was slightly older and maybe not as updated, but it still very accommodating, clean and very charming. But the biggest plus was that it was across the street from the path to the beach, which made it no big deal to run back to the house when we were at the beach. The other families we were with were able to park their golf cart in our drive and join us at the beach.

All the bedrooms were very roomy, neat and clean, but one is quite small and without a closet, although the master bedroom, upstairs, was absolutely awesome! Every bedroom had its own TV and the kids loved the bunk beds.

Another plus are the safety devices on the back doors leading to the pool. We have two small grandchildren and neither could reach the handle to the main back door, so they could not get to the pool area without an adult opening this door. Twice, our two year old granddaughter opened the bedroom door (that also leads to the pool area) and a piercing alarm sounded which frightened her, but made us immediately scramble to get her and close that door. We were thankful for that feature.

The house also had a gas grill and a plastic cart we used to haul everything to the beach. This was a life saver! We were very grateful this was available to use. We brought our bikes with us and biked to the pier every morning to watch the sunrise, then just road around the island.

We would definitely rent this house again because of its size, location to the beach and the North end of the island. It was a superb vacation!

Great Home, Great Pool, Great Beach!!!

  • 5 of 5
This house is in a great location on Anna Maria. It was our first trip to the island, but we quickly realized that the North End of the island fit our needs for a peaceful and very family oriented vacation. The house was a good size for us and our two small children. The pool was really nice, and the huge, serene beach was literally a few steps away which is a huge bonus when traveling with little ones. Its a bit of a walk (20 minutes) to get to the shopping area in town but was a fun morning activity to do and get donuts! And you're only a few minutes drive to restaurants and other areas of the island. The house had everything we needed (except a DVD player, which would have been handy with the little ones wanting to watch movies at night). It was very clean and two of the bedrooms were surprisingly large. We definitely would like to go back again!
