Imagine lying on a pristine stretch of a powdery white sand beach, shaded by swaying palms from the balmy Florida sunshine. A pod of dolphins plays in the sparkling water nearby. There are no high rises or large resorts, just Old Florida charm and a laid back vibe.
This daydream becomes reality on Anna Maria Island, a slice of paradise beloved by snowbirds looking for a winter getaway and beach bunnies in the summer. Named American’s #1 Beach Vacation Destination by TripAdvisor in 2014, it’s not difficult to see why this island beach is on so many traveler’s bucket lists. A real estate agent and traveler’s dream alike, the island is home to hundreds of vacation properties, with some of the most popular Anna Maria Island condo rentals and house rentals located just a short walk from the stunning gulf beaches.
At Anna Maria Island Rentals, we offer a wide range of professionally managed, modern vacation rentals that allow you to experience this wonderful island at your own pace. With beach condos and beach cottages just steps from beach access and water views, guests enjoy amenities such as private pools, wifi, gulf views, washer/dryer units, and more. Check-in is made simple with our property management system, so guests will have peace of mind from start to finish on their Anna Maria vacation.
Families and couples alike will appreciate the endless beautiful beaches, such as Bradenton beach, Holmes beach, and nearby Cortez, that stretch the length of the seven mile barrier island. Take a gulf drive up historic Pine Avenue to see some of the most luxurious bayfront rental properties the area has to offer. Exploring the island is easy with a free trolley service and rental shops for bicycles and golf carts, or take a stroll on the beach at your leisure.
Discover specialty boutiques and local art galleries in the north end of the city of Anna Maria before sampling fresh-caught local seafood at one of the beachfront restaurants. While Anna Maria beach is the most well-known on the island, head to Manatee public beach for a more family-friendly vibe, or explore one of the hidden golden sand beaches along the gulf coast shore.
In the evening, watch the fiery sunset light up the Gulf of Mexico from local favorite Coquina Beach while you share a bottle of bubbly with your loved ones. Return to your beach house at the end of a long day and relax in your private cabana or heated pool under the stars. With Anna Maria Island Vacation Rentals, your dream vacation home is waiting for you at the end of the day.
