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!

5th stay so must love it!

  • 5 of 5

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😎

Beautiful property in paradise! Wonderful owners!

  • 5 of 5

We had an incredible time at Bayou Escape. The home is open and airy, and very clean. The furniture was quite comfortable, everything in good shape and working well, and lots of room in the house! It was nice to know that the owners live very close by in case of emergency.

You won't want to spend much time in the house, though - the pool overlooking the bayou is magical. We had great fun watching the birds and manatee watching!

The beach is less than 5 minutes away, and lots of restaurants are within walking distance. The area is quiet and serene.

We can't wait to come back. Thank you again, Kathy!

Exceedingly Beautiful & Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

The Bayou Escape was the perfect getaway. A lovely home with plenty of room and a beautiful view. Only a stone's throw away was a nice quiet section of AMI's pristine beach. Shops, restaurants, bars—there was plenty to do nearby but everything is just far enough that you still get your own little slice of secluded paradise.

Kathy was great—extremely nice and helpful. We definitely plan on returning!

Complete Zen......

  • 5 of 5

Loved this house. It was so perfect for our family of 6. We spent most of our days around the pool and on the deck. The kids kayaked and had paddle boards for the week from Beach Bums so they had a blast. It was hard to launch from the deck with low tide most especially. The only improvement i can think of if Ms. Kathy put in a kayak launch that'd be icing on the cake! We so enjoyed the comfy beds at this home everyone slept like babies. I loved how the house was big enough for our group but not so big we never saw the kids. They all wanted to hang out outside. We only took the short walk for beach days twice that's how much we enjoyed the backyard here. The heated pool was just perfect. Everything was spotless i can say enough how much we enjoyed our stay.

Great area, quiet and peaceful but close to the beach and places to eat. The house was larger than expected and the pool has a great view.

Picture perfect

  • 5 of 5

Our week stay was wonderful! The home was exactly as pictured and very clean, with super comfy beds. All four of us slept well.The view of the canal was relaxing and the visits from the various herons entertaining. With the beautiful views of the pool, canal and landscape I didn't mind cooking in the well-equipped kitchen. The Waterfront is a restaurant we went to more than once to enjoy great food and pleasant outdoor seating overlooking the bay. The casual Poppos became our family favorite, partaking in their fresh, made-to-order Mexican food. The location of the house was convenient to Pine Street for all the shopping and dining, while also making the walk to the beach very easy. This section of beach never seemed crowded even during "prime time". I would definitely stay here again.
