Guestbook comments from the owner
Hi Wanda,

We had an awesome time at Anna Maria Island. Your house offers all the comforts of home without all the worries. Lot's of space, gorgeous decorations and perfect location. It had everything we needed for our week stay. I loved waking up every morning, crossing the street and walking along the Bay collecting sea shells on my way to City Pier. The Pier offered great fishing and special sighting of dolphins and other sea life. Because of the great location we drove to Disney World one day, which the kids really enjoyed. We also had time for Paddle boarding, kayaking and biking. One of our favorite places to visit on the way to the beach was Ginny's & Jane E's Bakery (one of the coolest cafes you will ever visit). Definitely a friendly island with a lot to offer. We look forward to coming back in the near future.

Our family purchased our beach cottage on Anna Maria Island, after vacationing on the island for the past five years. No matter where our travels have taken us, we always come back to AMI for the gorgeous sun, sand and sea. We've rented various spectacular homes throughout the years and settled on the quiet part of the island, the north end. We love the sparkling waters of the Gulf of Mexico and the sugar, white sand on the beaches of the Gulf and Tampa Bay.

Wanda Pleshek purchased this house in 2013

After living abroad for several years and traveling the world, we knew we needed an escape to warm weather and sunshine, within a flights' distance. Anna Maria Island is a wonderfully, laid back, no big hotels, Island..which has the Gulf of Mexico on the West side of the island, and Tampa Bay at the east side of the island. You can have as much or as little 'action' at your fingertips. The locals are excited to share their piece of Paradise with visitors. Once your feet hit the sugar soft white sand of the beach, you won't want to put your shoes on again. The warm sunshine and cool breeze are exactly what a person needs to escape normal 'life'.

We fell in love with our beach cottage for its 250 square foot screened in elevated porch, overlooking Tampa Bay. Whether you are drinking your morning cup of coffee watching the sea, or relaxing in the evening with a cold drink, this porch allows you to sink into the overstuffed furniture and let your mind day dream. Even after sunset, the beauty of the swaying palm trees will take your breath away. And then there is the sensual smell of the sea breeze off the Bay. Soothing, relaxing and sure to please every holidaymaker.

If listening to hotel doors slam isn't your thing-you've found the perfect place to vacation in Anna Maria Island, especially at the north end of Anna Maria, where our cottage is located. The further north you move up the island, the more relaxed life becomes.

Anna Maria has also been named, 'One of America's Prettiest Town's, by Forbes magazine of August 2013. Forbes states, ' The entire city is a protected bird sanctuary, and don’t be surprised if you happen to meet a manatee during your morning swim.' Truly paradise, enough said!

Owner's Response: Thank you, Morley and family, for the wonderful review. We are so pleased you enjoyed Sunshine Baydream and Anna Maria Island. You said it, located at the north end of the island, we are so close to the City Pier and Pine Street, all the conveniences of home right at your door step. Please keep us in mind for future "relaxing vacations", as we always love to host repeat guests, to offer a discounted return booking rate. Sunshine Baydream decor is geared to keep the sun shining, even on a cloudy day. Thank you for noticing the charm. Look forward to hearing from you again.

Awesome place for fun and relaxation

  • 5 of 5
We headed to Florida with 2 boys under the age of 8 and 2 Grandparents that were eager to escape the cold WI winter. This is an awesome property on Anna Maria Island. The home has 2 secluded bedrooms and an open format in the living room. We grilled out fresh fish when weren't taking in the beach or traveling to neighboring areas. Tampa is only an hour away and Orlando is about 2. The local pier has fun fishing and the food on the island is Great. I recommend this property and Anna Maria to all ages. You can sit back and relax or take a road trip at any moment. ENJOY!

Owner's Response: Hello Adam, thank you for the five star review. We are so happy you brought your children and the grandparents to Anna Maria Island, when escaping the Wisconsin cold winter. The house is laid out perfect for two families, privacy for both, yet the open concept for entertainment purposes and screened in linai for chilling with a hot or cold beverage. How wonderful the boys were able to fish at the City Pier, walking distance from the house. With the beach only 1 home from us, it makes walking to City Pier a breeze, via the sugar white sand. Please hurry back to visit us, we loved having you all.

Absolutely Loved It :))

  • 5 of 5
We can't say enough about how much fun we all had! Two couples and a older teenager went for a week. What a great week it was. The house has everything you could possible need. The nearby shops kept the ladies busy while the guys just hung out on the pier or just walking the endless beaches. Great restaurants nearby within walking distance. We highly recommend staying at Sunshine Baydream and enjoying the beautiful sunrises and sunsets.....

Owner's Response: Thank you very much, Wood family & friends for the great review! It was such a pleasure having you at Sunshine Baydream. Our location is quite handy to be one house from the beach, whether taking a walk, watching a welcoming sunrise or colorful sunset. So happy the gals enjoyed the short walk to shopping, many options from our peaceful location. Please hurry back for a return discount rate, we'd love to see you again! Joe & Wanda

A Beautiful Home on a Lovely Island!

  • 5 of 5
My son, his wife and 3 children and I just returned from spending a glorious week at the Sunshine Baydream house on Anna Maria Island. The house was beautifully decorated(even prettier than the great pictures) and immaculate. The screened-in porch overlooking Tampa Bay was great for relaxing any time of the day or night. The kids loved using the outside shower to rinse the sand off after coming from the beach.(It also made it easier on dad, mom and grandma.) The game room, 4 TV's, cable, WIFI and free U.S. long distance was an added plus. The hide-a-bed made sleeping six a snap. AMI is a wonderful, peaceful, slow paced island with beautiful sugar sand beaches, great little specialty shops and great restaurants including The Rod and Reel, Waterfront and the Sandbar. Walking down to the city pier from the house, watching the dolphins and stopping for ice cream at 2 Scoops was a favorite thing to do. Going to Ginny and Jane E's for coffee and exploring their unique shop was a treat. I highly recommend this property and can't wait to return soon and explore more of what the island has to offer!

Fabulous Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5
Sunshine Baydream is as beautiful as it's pictures. Our family stayed there for 8 days; it was a relaxing, comfortable environment. It was clean and well-maintained; it felt like we walked into a magazine...immaculate!! It's only 2 hours from Disney--which was our main goal for the kids this year. After two days of Disney, this was the perfect place to refresh, hit the beach and put our feet up. The house is fully stocked for all conveniences, even for making frozen margaritas! There is the Tampa Bay side beach access right across the street...very convenient. The kids found the gulf side to be much more exciting, also very close and convenient to get to. The waves were beautiful and the water was warm. The sand is just as it says, white as sugar and soft to the feet. We took morning walks to the City Pier and watched the fishermen and saw dolphins swimming in the Bay. We ate at the Rod and Reil Pier Restaurant; very casual, fabulous food and great service. What more do you need? We also ate at the Sandbar Restaurant--Gulf side--right on the beach. Very good food and again...great service! We hit the shops, Ginnie and Jane E's is very unique; very artsy, fun and you can get a smoothie and latte while you browse. And to cool off at any time of the day, you must make it a priority for Two Scoops Ice Cream shop! Absolutely wonderful!! We will definitely be coming back to Anna Maria Island and the Sunshine Baydream! Thanks for the fabulous time and look forward to future stays.
