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!

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.

Agree 100% - best location on the island!

  • 5 of 5

What a fantastic time we had! The bungalow was so clean on arrival. Obviously a great deal of love and care has gone into this place by Mike and Lisa. It proved to be a fantastic base for our week on AMI.

Too much to include here but our highlights included kayaking, drinks on the dock, excellent local places to eat, the beaches, biking around the north end of the island, the shops on Pine Avenue, relaxing on the pier....The list goes on and on!

I would recommend Bungalow on the Bayou 100%. You won't regret it. Thanks to Mike and Lisa - hopefully we will be back!

Awesome location on Anna Maria Island

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week with family on Anna Maria Island. Bungalow on the Bayou was a perfect location to everything including the City Pier and north end of the island, the most beautiful point on the Island. The condo was great, very clean and owners were awesome to work with . We would definitely stay there again and highly recommend to others.

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Bungalow on the Bayou was absolutely perfect for our family of 4. It was well equipped with anything and everything we needed to be comfortable on our vacation. The location is great, we enjoyed walking to the shops and restaurants that are close by. AMI was a much needed change from our usual vacation to PCB. The whole island moves at a slower pace and that is just what we needed.

Mike and Lisa made sure we had all the information we needed before we arrived. The place was decorated so cute and it was very clean. We had access to their kayak which was fun. There is a dock right outside the back door and they even provided fishing poles for us to use. They have certainly thought of everything to make their guest feel at home here.

We look forward to going back to AMI next summer and we are hoping to rent the same place again. Thank you Mike and Lisa!

Great place and wonderful location

  • 5 of 5

The bungalow on the bayou (we called it BOB) was a wonderful place to spend a week. The place has been fixed up nicely, was clean and very comfortable. The view from the balcony and proximity to the bay is fantastic. Sometimes I find it difficult to find places to stay on AMI that aren't meant for large groups/families. BOB was perfect for a couple or small family. I would definitely return in the future.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the nice review Paula. We fell in love with the view the second we stepped out on the balcony. I could just sit out there all day. Come visit us again sometime.

About Lisa Costello

Lisa and I have been married for 20 years. We have three wonderful kids. Our daughter is 17, and our two sons are 15 and 13. I have been here since 1972 and and Lisa has been here since 1985. We live about 30 minutes from the bungalow.

Lisa Costello purchased this bungalow in 2015

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!
