Anna Maria Island Accommodations on the Beach
Humans are drawn to the serenity found in the ebb and flow of the tides, and when you plan a beach vacation, you need to stay at the beach. You soon discover that even the homes and condos that promise “a quick walk brings you to water’s edge” end up lacking something very important: the sights and sounds that come standard with our Anna Maria Island beachfront rentals! Step into spaces where Gulf breezes can be felt simply by opening a window, where the sounds of the ocean lull you into a deep sleep filled with happy dreams. Each bedroom in these special places offer a touch of the sea, either in the color of the linens topping the beds, in a picture of a deck overlooking the water, or in the Gulf of Mexico and the sandy beaches that serve as a backyard! Choose a private home with spacious living areas and luxurious private spaces and wake up every morning to a walk along shore’s edge at sunrise. Offering swimming pools and barbecue grill, views of the bay or toes in the sand adventures just steps away from your back door, our Anna Maria beach rentals are all the proof you need that vacation dreams do come true!
Our Anna Maria Beachfront Rentals are Built for Families
The beach lifestyle is one you crave, and our homes provide that for everyone who stays inside, but there’s more to our Anna Maria Island beachfront rentals than just a good time. The living rooms are comfortable spaces to watch television or read a book during the moments you don’t feel like moving from the plush and comfortable couch you are sitting on. Rainy days on the island aren’t cause for sadness; bring the party inside to the dining rooms, playing board games, putting together puzzles, or holding a family conference (complete with snacks!) regarding what you want to do when the rains stop. Plan a morning fishing expedition and grill the catch of the day that evening on the deck that overlooks the water. Sleep late in the mornings and stay up late every night, and don’t worry about sticking to a routine; why worry about time when you are visiting paradise? You will return home feeling rested and relaxed and get back into your normal schedule soon enough!
The Moments You Will Remember Forever
Beach life is an amazing life, and island life just brings all the wonders to an entirely new level of perfection, bringing you moments that you wish would never end. A Florida sunset viewed from the balcony of your Anna Maria Island vacation sanctuary shines brighter because you know that if you wanted, you could be walking along the shores of the Gulf, experiencing its beauty with your toes in the sand. The beach is always near on the island and reminders of its proximity can generally be found in the décor of our properties. A seascape painting hanging over the dining room table where you play board games every night, a conch shell being purposed as a book end to the books provided by the home owners for your reading pleasure, even that pile of beach gear in the garage offers a colorful reminder that your next minutes with RentTheKeys could be spent at the beach!
And because you never want these magical moments to be forgotten, you find yourself staring at the world behind the lens of your camera while you take walks along the beach each morning, photographing (but not disturbing!) the sea turtle nest surrounded by stakes and red markers to remind you to be a little more careful, the sea oats swaying in the breeze out front of that sherbet-colored cottage that looks like it came straight from the pages of a children’s storybook, and the little girl in pig tails and a red swimsuit, running towards a flock of birds that fly into the air causing her to burst out in excited giggles. These beautiful moments will become pictures that grace the walls of your own home, keeping the memories alive even as you are far from our white sand shores. Real life can be stressful and this time out from responsibilities and stresses will help you deal with the bad, especially when you catch a glimpse of that photo your best friend took of you with your arm raised to the sky and the rays of the setting sun shining through the glass of wine. That moment of pure joy, captured forever, will make you understand more clearly why a Santa Maria Island vacation spent with RentTheKeys was the best idea you have had in more than a few years!
Exploring Anna Maria Island
The island is a small one, so you know that no matter where your vacation sanctuary is located, it is guaranteed to be close to all the fun Anna Maria Island offers! Build your own donuts at the Donut Experiment and take them home for late start mornings. Enjoy a fresh grouper sandwich while looking over the gulf at the Kokonut Hut while playing your favorite songs on the jukebox. On clear days you can sit out under the Palapas, watching the shorebirds circle the surf and then swoosh down on unsuspecting creatures destined to be their dinner! On rainy days, they leave the walls open of the covered side of the Kokonut Hut, allowing the fresh air in and keeping the views unobstructed without soaking the patrons.
After an enjoyable meal, taking a quick drive around the island will give you a closer look into the history of Florida. Older cottages imbued with the essence of old Florida stand side by side with newer construction, and although you are already full from your meal at Kokonut Hut, be sure to make some time during your stay to drop in and visit the Rod & Reel Pier. The pier has been an Anna Maria Island staple since 1947 and the restaurant found at the end of the pier never fails to please, serving breakfast, lunch, and dinner every day of the week!
