About the property

4-BR very close to beach

Location, location, location. If you are looking to be close to the GULF beach, this is the one. Beach Cay ( is perfectly situated at the very desirable North End of Anna Maria Island, just steps to the Gulf of Mexico's white sugar sand beaches (the Gulf side of the island, not the bay side!). Beach Cay is really very close to the beach. There is a LARGE NEW pool (14 feet X 24 feet). When you compare rental properties. (RECOMMENDATION: Ask for the pool size when you rent. Most rental properties have small pools.) Beach Cay is lovely, with true beach house character. Two bathrooms and 4 bedrooms (two large, two small). Five flat-panel TVs, (one in each bedroom+sitting room). There is a path across from the house that provides direct access to the GULF beach, and it's probably the nicest section of beach on the island (see white line on picture 1 for location of path).


Very close. Look at the last two pictures. They were taken from the same spot (wide-angle, no zoom) on the path in front of the house that accesses the beach. One was taken looking towards the beach, the other one looking towards the house. The picture before these two is taken on the same path, a few steps closer to the beach.

Beach Cay also has free NETFLIX access, allowing you to select and view movies of your choice on the main TV.

Note: We continuously improve Beach Cay, so there may be small differences between the pictures and the property.

Another great stay

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time staying at Beach Cay, and we'll stay there again. We arrived the afternoon before the Food & Wine on Pine festival. The weather was perfect. We had a great time, and stayed through the next week. Very relaxing, and we used the pool and the beach frequently. We were also frequent customers at the Sandbar Restaurant just down the beach.

Beautiful, very close to the beach!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at beach cay with our 3 children and my parents. There was ample room for everyone! The master bedroom is very nice, large, and private. Front load washer and dryer were very convenient for keeping up with laundry. Pool was very nice and heated perfectly. We really appreciated the pool and beach toys available, and the cart to take things to and from the beach was a big bonus! We were very pleased with the location and how close we were to the beach!

A wonderful Thanksgiving with our family.

  • 4 of 5

Five adults and 2 children stayed here over a Thanksgiving holiday. Originally, we had rented another home through VRBO for this week. Upon arrival to THAT property, the owner's failed to clean the home for us. We ended up not staying there and were frantically looking for another home that was large enough for our family and was available during the Thanksgiving holiday. Good luck, right?

I found this home online and emailed the owner. Beatrice responded immediately and we started the process. She was extremely accommodating and helpful during the process. We were able to get all of the documents signed and payment sent and were in the house in a matter of hours. Now, the owner wasn't expecting to be renting this property so they didn't really have time to go through the home before we entered. However, the home was clean, the beds were made with nice linens.

Upon entry, we noticed several small dead cockroaches on the kitchen floor. Apparently, the home owner had the rental sprayed recently and they hadn't been in to clean up after the exterminator was there. There were roach traps in the kitchen cupboards and droppings inside the cupboards and drawers. That was a bit of a deal breaker. I ran all of the dishes through the dishwasher, resprayed the kitchen, and cleaned all of the cupboards and drawers. After I cleaned the kitchen, I did not find any evidence of cockroaches the rest of the week.

The home is spacious with plenty of room for 8 to 10 people. The interior of the home is white Shiplap throughout (walls and ceiling) which gives it a true old beach house feel. The rooms are large, clean and the beds are comfortable. The kitchen is decent and is right off of the pool and patio which made it great for socializing, entertaining, and morning coffee. The pool and patio are spectacular and the pool was cleaned twice during the week we were there. The neighbors were quiet. Beach access was directly across the street and the beaches are amazing. Wifi was good, cable and tv's were great.

I would suggest replacing the living room furniture and updating the look of the room. It wasn't bad but wasn't very comfortable and our family spent a lot of time there in the evening.

Overall, I would stay there again.

Our Favorite Family Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for one week and just loved it. The location was directly across from the gulf with beach access out the front door. The bay side was an 4 minute easy walk. Wildlife at the beach was incredible. We saw dolphins, manatees (and one small shark) almost every day of our stay. I recommend bringing snorkels. The house was perfect for our family. Neat as a pin and very well taken care of by the owners. The furniture was beautiful and what I am used to seeing in a rental. It had such a homey feel that we loved. Not that cold feel you usually get at a vacation rental. The best part of the visit was the incredible pool. It is very large for a private house pool and very clean. The master bedroom is up the stairs and secluded from the other three bedrooms. It had a single bed in the alcove of this room that would be great if there was a baby or toddler that needed extra care. This house is perfect for a large family or two small families since the master has a king and the second larger bedroom has a queen. The third bedroom has a double bed and bedroom four has a bunk bed. The stay was just beautiful.

Nice house and excellent beach location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Beach Cay late June 2015 and we had a great time! We liked how close the home was to the beautiful white sandy beach where we spent a lot of time. The pool was private and refreshing to take a daytime or an evening swim. We barbecued with the grill and had some good meals. The home worked for all of us, 6 adults and 2 teenagers as it was very comfortable. We rented bikes for the week and that was a fun way to see the island and go to the shopping areas and restaurants nearby. The owner Beatrice was professional and helpful throughout the rental process. We stayed at another place further south in Florida but Anna Maria Island is by far the best. We all agreed that the location of this home is the best location on the island. No high rise hotels and no major chain stores in this charming area. Everyone in our group wants to come back here again soon!

Great home and excellent location.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Beach Cay in early June 2015 and we all had a wonderful time. The pool area is very private and was a nice retreat after a day at the beach. This area of Anna Maria in my opinion would be the absolute best area on the island to stay. It is a very short walk to the beach from Beach Cay, and the beach in this area is about the best I have seen in the US.

The house was great and we all had plenty of room. The owner was great to work with and very quick to respond. I would recommend this house to anyone and I am sure we will be renting here again.

I spent hours looking at the available properties on Anna Maria and finally chose this one. If you are looking for a place close to an awesome beach with a very nice pool Beach Cay is the place.
