About Ros

Bayview Dream is our second family home. Privately owned, we look forward to the opportunity to welcome you to our home from home.

We aim to provide a high quality home with equally high standards for you to enjoy and relax amid lovely Anna Maria Island on the Gulf Coast of Florida.

We share our values with those who work with us locally on Anna Maria to make every vacation special.

Our local friends are wonderful and welcoming and just one of the reasons we fell in love with Anna Maria, a really special Island.

Our home is special to us, and we hope it will be special to you as well. Many of our guests are repeat vistors who we warmly welcome back.

Our search took us a long time - 3 years - and we enjoy and value our own family time at Bayview Dream, which is special to us.

We truly hope that you will enjoy your time too and that, like us, you won't be able to wait too long to return, as so many of our guests do.

Why Ros chose Anna Maria

Location Location Location

We appreciate high standards of comfort and cleanliness and aim to provide this for ourselves and for you.

We are a family of four who having discovered Anna Maria Island loved it so much that we decided to find our own home.

Three years later we believe we found the perfect spot where one can enjoy superb waterfront views whilst a short stroll from bay and gulf beaches and restaurants and stores. Location, location, location, only half sums up our home, the other half is inside our home.

Our home is special, a place we can relax and unwind on lovely Anna Maria Island close by the restoration area and all amenities.

We are offering our home from home to you to share.

We have many returning guests who we are always pleased to welcome back.

We sincerely hope that you would enjoy our home and this part of paradise as much as we do.

Couldn't be better

  • 5 of 5

Our third holiday in this lovely home. The facilities are perfect for us and the location is to die for! Anna Maria is a wonderful, peaceful and relaxing place. BayView Dreams stands on the best road, backs onto the best waterway and is surrounded by a wonderful range of restaurants to suit all budgets. We sing its praises to anyone we talk holidays with.

We love the old world courtesy, the idiosyncrasy of the area, the sun and the temperature, the view over the waterway..... Can't wait to come back.

Big, beautiful and very accommodating.

  • 5 of 5

We have been traveling to Anna Maria Island for 14 years and have rented many vacation homes. This year we won the lottery on the perfect place!! The location is fantastic, located on a canal with a great dock where our boys enjoyed fishing while we stretched out by the pool. The home is located on a street filled with small boutiques, restaurants and only a short walk to the city pier. This home is very spacious and well equipped, has furnishings that are bright and modern. The layout with two master bedrooms was ideal! The huge kitchen was very well appointed and made preparing meals easy and enjoyable. We would love to return to this little slice of heaven and would recommend this home to island visitors.

Spacious home super location

  • 4 of 5

This is a beautiful and immaculate home on a fairly busy street, but very quiet inside. The house has very large rooms and a huge kitchen. The guest book addresses every thing you would need or want to know about staying in the home or on the island, all in a binder with an appendix. Talk about organized. The photos are accurate as is the description of the home provided by the owners, save for a few things we think you should know. First, the beach towels are hidden in a wicker basket on the wall with the stray hat display. Took me 2 days to discover them. The master shower upstairs, while enormous, has 2 Speakman brand shower heads Y'd together. Because of flow restrictors, there is barely any water pressure sufficient to wet your hair or remove shampoo from it. Not a major problem but an annoyance for sure. The outside hand pull shower has tons of water pressure though. All the faucets provide quick flow hot water, which was great. As for the amenities, we had to buy laundry detergent, shampoo, paper towels, and plastic baggies. The spices were very minimal. We bought garlic powder, but there was small salt and pepper shakers. The kitchen has pretty much all the pots pans and utensils needed. A muffin tin would be nice, and one cookie sheet was in need of replacement.

The towels were good, the beds very comfortable. The sheets, while soft, are getting a bit old, IMHO. Not first rate like I use at home. But this is a rental property. The biggest complaint we had was the spotty Wi-Fi in the home. The router is on top of the main room TV! And should have given us good use of our phones and IPad. But call after call dropped and we rarely could send pictures off of the devices. We don't know if it's AMI that is the problem or just this house. The best place to get and keep a call is in front of the den mirror, FYI. One small inconvenience, or big one for some is the garage door opener on the key chain didn't work. We reported it to the manager, who said she had to order a new one, as there is a short in it since a new battery didn't fix it. So I had to get out of the car when we arrived at the house, go to the side door and enter the house then go into the garage and open the garage door to get into the garage. And reverse the procedure when we left. Upon arrival, we discovered the outdoor BBQ was out of gas (fish all ready to grill). New one brought next a.m. We WOUld def. RENT AGAIN. Very comfortable vacation.

Owner's Response: Dear Debbie Thank you for your kind review and drawing one or two matters to attention. We aim to maintain our home to the highest standards. The water force in the master has not been a problem and we will investigate. We are aware of one problem with water pressure a couple of years ago which was due to a burst water pipe down the Island. Similarly the broadband/wi-fi normally works around the home and the pool for phones, laptops and ipads so again it could have unfortunately been a local problem during your stay. The garage keyfob opener if broken can unfortunately take a few days to replace which to ensure security does then mean first accessing the home and then the garage to open the doors. We are very pleased to see that you enjoyed your stay and would rent again. We look forward to welcoming you back.We are always pleased to hear from our guests and aim to ensure that any issues that arise are immediately attended to locally. Best wishes Ros and Family

Walk to the Gulf or Bay beaches from our four bed, four bath, waterfront, up-scale luxury pool home in the centre of lovely Anna Maria.
