'South Cay' (www.SouthCay.com) is an absolutely beautiful house on Anna Maria Island, located in Anna Maria (not in Holmes Beach). There are only 11 houses between South Cay and the Gulf of Mexico beach, so this property is very close to the beach. Walk out the house, look to your right, and you see the beach access. In addition, this is probably the nicest section of the beach on the island. South Cay is also close to Anna Maria's charming island shopping area (Pine Avenue), which means you can stroll to a breakfast place or the ice cream parlor, and walk to shops and stores. South Cay has 4 bedrooms and 2 and a half baths. The house is in mint condition. The master bedroom has a high-end super comfortable new king-size bed. In addition, there are two queens, and a single.
South Cay has a screened front porch, a screened master bedroom side deck that leads to a larger rear deck, and a 3rd floor screened rear deck. There are four flat panel TVs of various sizes, cable, wireless high-speed internet, and free phone use within the US.
The new pool is large (14 feet X 28 feet). RECOMMENDATION: Ask for pool sizes when comparing rental properties. Few have a pool this size!
South Cay also comes with free NETFLIX access, allowing you to select and view movies (available on the main TV).
City Park?: Some guests pointed out that on Google map the beach at the end of Palmetto Ave is marked as 'city park'. There is no 'park', but there is a wildlife preserve section on the beach where turtles live. You cross it on a wooden walkway as you access the beach. The beach is the beautiful Gulf beach. See last two pictures of this posting. These are pictures of the beach at the end of Palmetto Ave.
We keep upgrading South Cay, so there may be small differences in decorations and furniture between the pictures posted and the actual house at the time of your rental.
