About the property

1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, 2 Sleeps

The "Flip Flop" duplex is a fantastic ground level remodeled duplex located one block from the white sandy beaches boasting professional landscaping, beautiful retro interiors, and its own private pool for each side of the duplex. Flip (the orange side of the duplex) is a one bedroom, one bath duplex unit featuring an eat in kitchen with new appliances reflecting a retro feel, flat screen televisions in the living and bed rooms, wireless internet and its own private oasis through the back to the pool. Separated from the other unit by a thick landscape barrier, this duplex is ideal for couples looking to get away to Anna Maria Island. Walk directly from the bedroom through your french doors to the pool area to use the outdoor shower under the sun after a long day at the beach before heading to dinner at one of the many island options only a mile away.

Had a wonderful time at the Flip Cottage. Only a 5 minute walk to beach, your own Oasis pool in the back, everything you can think of in the rental home. Hope to get back next year for another visit.

Excellent home away from home on Anna Maria Island

  • 5 of 5

This home is beautifully maintained with excellent quality furnishings and appliances. The outdoor space is lush and private. We spent most of our time outside except to sleep! The property manager is very accommodating and responsive - we had a couple of small issues and they were dealt with immediately. A nice location and close to the beach - about a 2 minute walk. We rented bikes for the week and used them every day. The house is about 15 minutes ride to the north of AMI and another 15 or so to the main shops at Holmes Beach.

My only suggestion would be to increase the amount of supplies in the kitchen suitable for 2 people (small cooking pots and pans and plates - there is a fantastic dishwasher but with such few supplies you have to rewash the same plates all the time so you never really fill the washer to capacity).

We really enjoyed our stay here and absolutely recommend it.

Great place...very clean and comfortable. Small but perfect for a couple. Located in a very quiet area, but just a short walk to the beach. Small private pool is nice...a great spot.

My husband and I came to this property to celebrate our 10 year anniversary. As soon as we opened the door we were in love and extremely pleased. Everything is perfect. Extremely clean, beautifully decorated (not over the top cheesy beach decor), private pool, refreshing outdoor shower, newer washer/dryer, retro gorgeous kitchen/appliances, even the towels smelled amazing! We will for sure be renting again and again from you. Thank you for making our celebration everything and more!

We stayed in many vacation rentals over the years but this one is the best! The care and attention to detail is amazing. Everything is perfect. We are already making plans to return.
