Why Kathy McLean chose Anna Maria Island

Anna Maria Island beaches are rated among the world's most beautiful. One of the finest features of the island is its low density population and miles of unspoiled beaches. This guest home is located on the preferred north end of Anna Maria where beaches are secluded from public traffic and restaurants and vintage shops are within walking distance.

What makes this cottage unique

During your stay, you'll find it hard to ever leave the island! Whether you're making it a pool day, shopping in the local village, boating on the bayou, or spending the day at the beach, this tropical location is one you will never forget!

This was our 5th time in Bayou Escape. Once again it was fantastic. Kathy was very responsive to a couple of requests we made, as ever. We were a group of 6 adults and the villa was perfect for us. Great location, fantastic views. See you again soon I hope😎

Lovely Anna Maria Island home

  • 5 of 5

We (5 adult family members) stayed for 5 days in Feb. and found this house very comfortable and perfect for our visit. The house is quiet, clean, and bright with many windows and a nice view out to the water. The pool is nice for an evening cool down before dinner, and the beach is a short 5 minute walk. Kathy was helpful getting us acquainted with the property and checked in once to see if we needed anything. Very nice stay!

Beautiful place, excellent location

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed for several years in Anna Maria and this is far and away the best house we have ever rented. From the well-stocked kitchen to the high-quality linens, the interior had everything we could wish for -- it was very comfortable, clean and quiet. There were plenty of gathering and work spaces. The back yard felt private and offered great views, stunning landscaping and lots of comfortable seating. It was a very short stroll to the beach or into the restaurant/shopping strip. Looking forward to staying here again!

We had a wonderful 4 day minivacation here.

  • 5 of 5

This a very practical as well as charmig house on the bayou with a 4 minute Walk to the wonderful white beaches. We stayed with our 10 and 15 year old children and absolutely loved it. The back yard with pool and Canal view was beautiful and relaxing. The area parklike with houses with pretty gardens. The house is clean and nicely decorated and contains all you need. We loved to walk on the beach, bike around the neighborhood, kayak on the bayou walk to dinner etc.

highly recommend and we will be back.

Comments meant to be helpful, not negative!! We had a great time!

The kitchen is quite well-provisioned for meals at home. Some small knives would be helpful. The beds are comfortable; we would have appreciated blankets being provided rather than quilts, but that is a personal preference. A few more hand towels and wash cloths would be handy in the bathrooms, and the hair blowers were so hot we nearly burned our scalps.

Family room area, which has the greatest light and view, really needs a firmer seating sofa.

The outdoor patio and pool area is lovely and private.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind remarks and helpful suggestions. We pride ourselves on a quick response to any guest requests and only wish you had asked for assistance in meeting your needs, such as a request for additional kitchen knives. The master closet is stocked with additional bath linens and each bedroom is equipped with blankets (total of 9). Bedding quilts are ideal for Florida beach cottages because they are easily washed between guests. We are confused to hear about the blow dryers which have three power settings as well as cool vs hot options. We enjoyed meeting you and are glad you enjoyed your stay. Sincerely, The McLeans
