Overview

About the property

2 Bedroom, 1 Bath, Private Dock With Amazing Views

Located on the "best" street on Anna Maria Island, this two-bedroom, one-bath second floor vacation rental with a spectacular view was completely renovated at the end of 2015. The renovation included basically everything from floor to ceiling. Notice the pictures and reviews, they speak for themselves.

Growing up about 15 minutes off the island and enjoying the beach so much, my wife and I (and three kids) decided to purchase our piece of paradise. We found this "bungalow" in the Bayou and just couldn't pass it up. We knew we wanted to be on the water with our own boat dock and on the north end of Anna Maria. We found this location to be absolutely perfect. The views are incredible. Sitting from your couch in the living room, you can see the lighthouse on Egmont Key. Anna Maria Sound view's galore.

The bungalow is on historic Pine Ave. It is very close to everything a vacationer could want. Fabulous restaurants, ice cream shops, shopping, fishing, amazing beaches, breath-taking sunsets and more. Anna Maria Island has been chosen as the #3 prettiest city in the country and also in the top 10 "Island Beaches for Perfect Sand". Drive to our Bungalow and park your car for your entire stay. The free island trolley has a stop right outside your door and goes up and down the spectacular 7 mile island seven days a week. Fish and kayak from your own dock. Absolute paradise!

Why Lisa Costello chose Anna Maria

Growing up about 15 minutes off the island and enjoying the beach so much, my wife, three kids and I decided to purchase our piece of paradise. We found this "bungalow" in the Bayou and just couldn't pass it up. We knew we wanted to be on the water with our own boat dock and on the north end of Anna Maria. We found this location to be absolutely perfect. The views are incredible. Sitting from your couch in the living room, you can see the lighthouse on Egmont Key. Anna Maria Sound view's galore.

What makes this bungalow unique

We absolutely fell in love with this the moment we saw it. It had the dock we wanted, the water views and was on the best street on the island. Once you get here, you can park your car for the remainder of your stay. The free trolley runs everyday. Absolute paradise!

The Cutest Bungalow with Amazing Water View

  • 5 of 5

Mike and Lisa have put a lot of love and care into their cute condo. The location is amazing and we loved the water views. We used the kayak daily and were lucky to have a manatee swim by us. We tried our hand at fishing thanks to the fishing poles. We enjoyed going to the beach everyday and the chairs and umbrella were perfect for those long days at the beach. The condo is so nicely decorated and everything you need is there! We will be back again!

Owner's Response: Hi Meg, Glad the Bungalow worked worked out for your stay. May I ask, why the 4 star review? Up to this point 20 something reviews later and you are our first review less than 5 star. Can you elaborate why you choose to only give 4 stars? Was there something wrong with your stay?

October holiday

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay very much, the bungalow is in a lovely position on the island and we were able to walk most places we wanted to go or use the trolley bus. The accommodation was clean and the beds were lovely and comfortable, Lisa was very quick to get back to us with any enquiries we had. We enjoyed sitting out on the dock and used the canoe a couple of times, we were surprised how far you can go down all the different canals and it was lovely to see all the different wildlife including the manatees. Malcolm and Sue
