Each level features 3 bedrooms, 2 baths, updated kitchens, and large balconies.

The top floor has vaulted ceilings and a spiral staircase leading to a loft and rooftop deck. The versatility that this property offers with 6 total bedrooms and 4 full baths makes it perfect for large families or groups of friends.

This lovely home is close to restaurants, shopping, a stop for the free Anna Maria Trolley (runs from 6 am to 10 pm), and Bayfront Park with a playground and a kayak launch. This quiet neighborhood is only 250 yards from the beautiful white sand beaches of Anna Maria Island, but you can also just spend the day relaxing at your private heated pool. The Big Chill will be perfect for your next enjoyable getaway.

A NOTE ABOUT HEATED POOLS: Since running pool heat is a very expensive proposition for our owners, they ask that we collect $100 per week (plus tax) from guests requesting the pool at their rental property be heated.

Ideal Family Vacation Hub

  • 5 of 5

We rented the whole house for a large family vacation - brothers, sisters, their children, grandparents. Since the house is configured as 2 separate apartments, there was plenty of space to store food, cook, stay together or hang out in groups (young vs. old) in separate areas. Plentiful of dishes, pots, utensils and BEACH GEAR - beach chairs, swim noodles, floats, wagons to pull it all onto the beach.

ROOFTOP ACCESS was wonderful to watch 4th of July fireworks popping up all around us.

2 blocks (5min max) walk from the house to the beach made it a breeze to be able to come back to the house whenever needed.

The pictures reflect very accurately how the house looks inside and out.

Important - to accommodate a very tall college boy, we needed some additional bedding. Our request was attended to promptly and without any questions (Thank you!).

Wonderful Beach House for a large family

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time with family for a family birthday party and spring break combination. Everything we needed was in the house! Beach is so close, the kids loved the pool! It has two identical floors which allowed the family to have some privacy and then we would gather on the upper floor in the evening to have a big family dinner then sit out on the deck and tell family stories...I would recommend checking this place out if you need a big house for you vacation..

Would stay on the island again, just not at this house

  • 3 of 5

The house was in a great location, close to the beach. any of the staff I met were great, very mindful that I was on vacation, very helpful. The house itself has a few issues, pool was not clean, several windows were dirty enough we could not see through them, The tile floors need a good cleaning, the very first day unpacking I was barefoot and buy evening my feet were black and I had not been outdoors. The lights around the pool did not work making it hard to sit by the pool in the evening, the lights in the pool did not work that is more a mood set thing. The stuff in the garage we were told we could use for the pool and beach was all junk, rusted wagon, old blow up toys, I think it was just an accumulation of things past guests left behind. I found a lot of things to be less than clean, and the kitchen to be under stocked of dishes and cooking utensils. The area is great, with a free shuttle with helpful drivers to get you around due to the terrible traffic. Beaches are wonderful, we found the bottom part of the island (where this house is) is definitely the best part of the island, north is a bit dirty and High priced, south Coquina beach is the best!!!!! Do not miss Bridge street and the pier.

I recommend going across to the main land to walmart for food and supplies, the Publix on the island is the only grocery store on the island and the prices are VERY high. all in all we had a good time. This house in my eyes was no value for the money spent. I will find a less expensive place next time. Not a good value.

Perfect for large extended families!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay here. It was perfect for the large family that we had. Kids were easily able to take naps without concern of adults waking them thanks to the spread out floors. All of our concerns were addressed promptly and the owner was so kind to us. Easy walks to beach and park even for small toddler legs! Can't wait to come back!
