About Anita Eldridge

Two best friends Ron & Scott purchased this home and completely 'gutted'it and remodeled it, so everything in the home is new. Scott & Ron have been friends since middle school and both were raised in Bradenton. Scott's wife Anita is the one who does the renting and cleaning.

Anita Eldridge purchased this house in 2008

Why Anita Eldridge chose Anna Maria Island

We choose to buy this home because it is within driving distance to our home and if guests need anything, we are only 20 minutes away.

What makes this house unique

The best part of this house is everything is new and very well decorated and clean. With it being such a short distance to the beach it is ideal for families with children.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Just wanted to say that the whole family had a lovely time at "The Beach Escape". Our son Ryan (2 1/2) went swimming in the pool everyday. We are already planning our trip for next year. Thanks Again

Perfect little house!

  • 5 of 5

I recently stayed with my husband, son, daughter-in-law and infant grandson. This was the perfect place for us. From the moment I inquired about this property, until we left, we enjoyed a relaxing, care-free experience. Anita is very responsive and helpful. It was the first time we had traveled with the baby, who was 7 months old, and she made sure we had all the equipment we needed....a crib, stroller, high chair. The house is lovely! There was room enough to spread out a bit and even to accommodate a few more people for Super Bowl! Yet it is cozy enough to encourage family time. It is very clean, nicely decorated and appointed with everything you will need including basic cooking supplies like salt, pepper, sugar, etc. And the pool! We spent most of our week looking at it, longingly, as the weather was not cooperative for a few days. But when we did get into it, it was fabulous! There is even a shallow area that the baby loved crawling around in. The beach is a very short walk away and there are also a few little restaurants within walking distance. Anything else you might like is certainly within a few minutes drive, so the location is also perfect. Truly, there was not a thing to complain about.....except possibly El Nino, but if Anita could have chased that away for us, I am sure she would have!

Beach Escape, a beautiful house in a quiet neighborhood close to the gorgeous beach

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely, relaxing week in Anita and Scott's beautiful house on a quiet dead-end street 4 houses from the beach. It was immaculate when we arrived and well-equipped with everything you would need, including a big stack of beach towels, beach chairs, and a complete set of dishes and pots and pans. The pool is heated and there are many chairs and chaise-lounges for sitting outdoors and an outdoor grill. The beds are really comfortable. Scott and Anita were very responsive to our requests and questions. The beach is absolutely pristine and a great place for a walk even when it was too cold for sun-bathing or swimming. The island is quiet generally with good restaurants and nobody is in a hurry, a very relaxing atmosphere for those seeking an escape from the rat race! It can be easily explored by bicycle or the free trolley.

Perfect Get-away

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful weekend get-away. The property was perfect in every way - great spaces, fantastic pool, close proximity to the beach. The rooms (two on one side of the house and two on the other) worked well for our two families. We loved the tram service and loved the beach! Thanks SO much!

so GREAT we are coming back in 2016

  • 5 of 5

We stayed the first week of Jan 2015 with our adult children and their spouses. First time we have ever rented a home and had our reservations. The home was clean, well stocked with linens, kitchen items, games, WI FI was perfect for all to use. The outdoor area is set up for gas grill and charcoal grill with a separate patio for the fenced in pool area. So close to the beach and the free trolley, as we didn't even attempt to drive the week we stayed. There is absolutely no need to worry when renting this property. We are returning in Feb 2016 with adult friends and hope to make a yearly trip to this home.

We had a great week.

  • 5 of 5

Five-star place run by five-star people. I give Beach Escape my highest recommendation. 4 BR, 3 Bath, fully furnished, and beautifully decorated. Enough beach chairs for everyone, clean sheets and a kitchen full of all appliances, pots, pans, utensils etc. It’s only a half a block from the beach. Our routine was the beach in the morning and a party in Beach Escape’s beautiful pool in the afternoon. Use the outdoor grill for dinner and try to catch the sunset in the evening. Our extended family of 8 had a wonderful week. Thanks Anita! Thanks Scott! A++++ property.
