** If you would like to have your pool heated, we kindly ask that you please contact AMV at least 10 days prior to your arrival so that it ensures us ample time to fulfill your request. We do offer pool heat as needed as a courtesy to our guests at no additional charge. All of our pools and pool equipment are closely monitored by the pool company for your safety, we kindly ask that the controls not be tampered with- most of the systems are locked for this reason. Due to the island's strict 10pm noise ordinance, the pool heaters will not run overnight. Please remember, outdoor spas are not hot tubs (some properties have a spa, some have a hot tub). Generally speaking, our winter months are considered from November through April. During these months we do our best to ensure that the pools are heated to a temperature of 82 degrees. However, please be aware that even in Central Florida we do occasionally get cold spells that can send the temperatures down into the 30's for a few nights in a row. This will cause the pool water temperature to draw down to in the 70's and a pool pump will automatically shut down if the outside temperature gets too cold. The pump will then kick back on in the morning and begin re-heating of the pool back to 82, which may take several days depending on the severity of the cold spell. Ultimately, these situations are beyond our control. Other issues such as severe weather conditions, equipment malfunction, temporary loss of use of equipment or amenities due to maintenance purposes or other items do happen for time to time. Please be aware that AMV cannot issue refunds during your stay based on acts of God. However, please know that in the rare event of pool equipment malfunction during your stay, AMV will do everything in our power to expedite repairs as quickly as possible as we certainly want you to enjoy your heated pool and Florida sunshine to the fullest extent possible! Anna Maria Vacations thanks you in advance for your understanding on this issue.

Wonderful & Effortless Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our family of six comfortably stayed here in the spring. The spacious outdoor grilling and dining area made cooking easy. Also having an outdoor shower was great. Property was clean & exceptionally well maintained, and had numerous amenities (TVs in all rooms, fast WiFi, pool toys, even Netflix). Location is down the street from Bean Point, a short walk from the Pier to the Bay, and a stroll from the main street with shops and restaurants. We rented a golf cart which was an absolute blast. We enjoyed the beach and pool on a daily basis. We also loved visiting the pier at all hours of the day, the view was amazing. We made sure to go to at least a couple of sunsets at Bean Point, what a sight--I would highly recommend this property.

Beautiful, Relaxing, Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed the first week of February 2016 with our adult children and their spouses. We had a wonderful get-away. The property is perfect in every way -- great backyard, fantastic pool, close to restaurants, the Bay, and the wonderful beach at Bean Point. This was our first time ever renting our home and it was so great we're coming back in 2017. The home was clean, well stocked with linens, kitchen items, WiFi, xboxes, games, lounge chairs by the pool, BBQs, grilling utensils, pool toys, and more. We took the free trolley around the Island, and we lived worry free for a week. It was wonderful. We are returning this coming year with friends and hope to make this an annual ritual.

Vacation Perfection

  • 5 of 5

Never seen a more beautiful pool. Peaceful and Relaxing. Home is fully stocked with everything you need. Beautiful landscaping. Conveniently located near beaches and restaurants without being in contested areas. Perfect view of the pool from the screened porch. Bay area a minutes walk away with two piers and restaurants. Private setup with little traffic. We rented bikes and a golf cart -- great for kids to ride bikes or skateboards. Neighborhood is surrounded by a sleepy beach town which adds to the quiet and beauty. We have vacationed in Florida for 20+ years. Love this location. Will be back.

Fun & relaxing family vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our friends invited us to join them on this Florida Gulft Coast island adventure. We heard good things about Anna Maria Island and this was our first visit. The vacation exceeded our expectations. Anna Maria Island is a lovely sleepy beach town with gorgeous beaches, great restaurants, and lots of peace and quiet. The Beach Escape home is very welcoming, has an amazing resort-level yard, the sheets and beds were so comfortable, and the kids even had xbox machines with games to play. The backyard pool is surrounded by coconut and palm trees, and the outdoor patio and bar area are something we need to replicate at home! Thank you so much for this incredibly relaxing vacation. We'd like to make it our annual family ritual!!

A true holiday escape

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in this home in Anna Maria Island! We were here for a week with another couple who are dear friends. This home is very comfortable and welcoming. It is centrally located near numerous restaurants. The yard is amazing! So many inside and outside amenities!! We enjoyed grouper sandwiches at Rod & Reel and our many walks to the beach. We walked daily the short walk to Bean Point to watch the absolutely spectacular sunsets. It's paradise. Thank you for sharing this lovely property with us. We can't wait to return!!
