'South Cay' is an absolutely beautiful house in Anna Maria, on Anna Maria Island, Florida. There are only 11 houses between South Cay and the Gulf of Mexico beach, so this property is very close to the beach. Walk out the house, look to your right, and you see the beach access.
In addition, this is probably the nicest section of the beach on the island.
South Cay is also close to Anna Maria's charming island shopping area (Pine Avenue), which means you can stroll to a breakfast place or the ice cream parlor, and walk to shops and stores.
South Cay has 4 bedrooms and 2 and a half baths. The house is in mint condition. The master bedroom has a high-end king-size bed. In addition, there are two queen beds, and a single.
South Cay has a screened front porch, a screened master bedroom side deck that leads to a larger rear deck, and a 3rd floor screened rear deck.
There are four flat panel TVs of various sizes, cable, wireless high-speed internet, and free phone use within the US.
The new pool is large (14 feet X 28 feet). RECOMMENDATION: Ask for pool sizes when comparing rental properties. Few have a pool this size!
South Cay also comes with free NETFLIX access, allowing you to select and view movies (available on the main TV).
City Park?: Some guests pointed out that on Google map the beach at the end of Palmetto Ave is marked as 'city park'. There is no 'park', but there is a wildlife preserve section on the beach where turtles live. You cross it on a wooden walkway as you access the beach. The beach is the beautiful Gulf beach. See last two pictures of this posting. These are pictures of the beach at the end of Palmetto Ave.
We keep upgrading South Cay, so there may be small differences in decorations and furniture between the pictures posted and the actual house at the time of your rental.
South Cay is a 'NO-PETS, NO-SMOKING' property.
This home is very bright, has top location on Anna Maria Island, large new heated pool, is steps from one of the nicest Gulf beaches, and has a lot of architectural elements.
It was a beautiful area to visit. The home was lovely and very comfortable for 4 adults and 3 children 11, 14, and 17. The house was located a block from the ocean, half a block to a place to eat, two blocks from ice cream shop and other shops. On the other side of the island was the bay with restaurant out on the pier and views of the sky bridge. The ocean was perfect the sand was like sugar. The water was not too deep so it would be good for small children. The kids loved gathering sea shells. You could get any where you wanted on the island by walking, biking, or trolley. We will be going back.
My family and I (including 2 kids ages 5 and 7) just spent a wonderful week at South Cay. The place was spotless upon our arrival. It was also well-stocked with outdoor furniture and pool toys, which was great given how much time we spent in the pool. And the pool IS large by Anna Maria Island standards, which suited our needs very well. Another plus is the number of porches and outdoor areas to enjoy; they also allowed for a nice breeze to blow through the house. We wanted to be close to Pine Ave. and close to the beach. The beach is just a very short walk, which made going to and returning from the beach a breeze. The shops and restaurants on Pine Ave. are also very nearby, as is the Sand Bar, which is a great place to watch the sunset. We would definitely recommend South Cay!
Best holiday ever. Loved the house. Loved the area. Hope to come back one day.
This was our first time in Anna Maria and loved it! Wish we rented for two weeks. Terrific location close to the beach, shops, restaurants, and the pier. The house was beautiful, immaculate, updated and very comfortable. The pool was large, warm and loved the waterfall. Can't wait to go back!
We have only been back for a few days and are dreaming of how amazing it all was. My family and I had the most amazing time last week. The house was absolutely perfect. From the second we walked in we could tell how much work they have done. The house was spotless and it seemed every detail was thought of. We spent half our days at the pool and the other half at the beach. We only had one rainy day but it was well needed for rest for everybody.
We had daily trips to Dips, take out twice from Sign of the Mermaid, watched the sunset from the Sandbar and ate at the Pier and Rod. My wife and I had a night out just the two of us at the Beach Bistro which was amazing. We all even made it over to Cortez and took a dolphin tour with Captain Kathe (highly recommend) and ended the night at Tyler's.
It was just an amazing experience and one we are trying to plan out again.
Thank you for opening your lovely home
