If you are looking for an island paradise for your next vacation, you would be hard pressed to find a location more stunning than Anna Maria Island. Based in Manatee County, Florida, the island is seven miles long and 2 miles wide and sits between the Gulf of Mexico and Tampa Bay. The laid-back location, weather, and activities make for a memorable time on the island. Add to that the vacation properties that you are about to read about then you have a vacation only dreamed about by the many. Let me walk you through the possibilities while you keep an open mind.
The only thing more diverse than the wildlife is possibly the breadth of range that holiday vacation properties are available in. When it comes to Anna Maria Island vacation rentals, you are spoiled for choice as there is a type of rental property to keep the most particular of people happy.
With plenty of gorgeous coastlines wrapped in sandy beaches, you can rent beachfront rentals that are right on the beach with nothing but a short stretch of sand between the water and you. These rentals by the beach will have you waking up to ocean waves breaking right out front range from having one bedroom for couples, right up to nine bedrooms for the largest of families to enjoy.
If condos are more your style, Anna Marias beach condo rentals are extremely well appointed and come with beach access views from your balcony. Ranging from one bedroom through to four bedrooms, these will wet your appetite for a great vacation condo. With the water so close, you will be relaxed to sleep by the sound of the waves and be fresh the next morning for a heart-starting swim before breakfast. You can leave the back door and stroll the beaches in search of coffee shops, restaurants, and shopping areas.
There is a range of one and two bedroom rentals that are part of a larger property and who have amenities to suit such as swimming pools, BBQ areas, lounge chair areas and more. These allow you to have a sense of home while enjoying your well-earned vacation. There is so much to see and do on the island that you won’t be in your rental for very long each day unless you want the privacy and solitude that is yours for the taking. Holiday your way.
Anna Maria Island vacation rentals also have a range of three and four bedroom houses for that extended stay feel and are affordable to all families considering a getaway holiday. For as little as US $1,000 per week you can make one of these your home base while you explore all that the island has to offer. Some of the services that come with these holiday houses include internet and linen service, with many properties boasting swimming pools, elevators, spas, and even properties with a boat dock. There are also some of these properties that are pet-friendly. These are more the luxury estate house than a beach cottage.
Very similar to but much larger in size are the vacation homes that include five and six bedrooms or more, and at least one magnificent estate that runs to eleven bedrooms. AS well they come with the same services and appointments that the smaller vacation homes have. Many have beach views, and several come equipped with boat docks. What better way to explore the island and its underwater treasures than a boat docked right at your backdoor.

You may want to make it easier and just rent a powerboat or sailboat and explore the coastline and the waterways. For the more adventurous, you can take flying lessons (and landing lessons), and for the less adventurous, the island also has tennis courts available and prestigious golf courses.
Many have come before you and have stayed, investing in property and local business for the culture that Anna Maria is famous for.
