If you are looking for that Old Florida feel, Beach Basket is located on Oak Ave which dead ends to the white sand beaches and the perfectly clear waters of Anna Maria Island. You are just 5 homes or a 53 second walk to relaxation and sunshine! Built in 1920, this home was restored recently by the owner who is a professional decorator keeping with the classic cottage look. The detail in this home is incredible, from ceiling accents to bead board cabinets with glass doors to the comfortable furnishings by the Pink Pineapple.

The beachy feel continues into both the king master suite with a seating area that leads to the bright and sunny master bath and the queen suite which has a private entrance to the pool area where you will find citrus trees including an Avocado tree and rich tropical landscaping.

Having an occasional guest or bringing the kids? The air conditioned sleeping porch with 2 twins is a perfect place for them or a perfect nook for you to relax and enjoy a good book and a frozen cocktail! Beach Basket is one of our most popular homes so book well in advance to find out why!!

Welcoming cottage!

  • 5 of 5

Rest, sun, beach and relaxation was what we were looking for, and we got so much more. Beach Basket exceeded our expectations. Warm and inviting. Ceiling fans, smart TV, private pool, washer/dryer and gas grill. Quiet street. Oh yes, we had to bring our own wine. Location is superb, beach a nano second away. Toasted sunset every night.Walk to Sand Bar restaurant. We will be back!

Owner's Response: Penelope, Thank you for your review on Beach Basket, I am so happy our home exceeded your expectations! We try to provide everything for our guests to feel at home where the only thing they need to bring is themselves and of course the wine. There is a little store called Time Saver just 5 minutes from Beach Basket and they have a great selection of wine at very affordable prices. We look forward to hearing from you again!

Charming, old school beach house, but beds were too uncomfortable

  • 3 of 5

We’re from the Anna Maria area, so the location of this home is excellent. Short walk to the beach and the Sandbar rest. House is very charming, an old school beach house. It is very well stocked and the washer/dryer is a nice bonus along with the pool. Pet friendly and a ranch (no large staircases) were the major points for us. The drawbacks are the second bedroom and bathroom. The dbl bed is too small as is the shower. The outside shower by the pool was what we used. The other drawback was the comfort of the mattresses. Both couples found the beds extremely uncomfortable. Still, very charming and can’t beat the location.

Owner's Response: Elisa, Thank you for reviewing Beach Basket, I’m glad you enjoyed its charm and location being just 5 homes from the beach. Beach Basket is also just a short walk to several restaurants and historic Pine Avenue. There is also a private fenced in back patio area with a pool and plenty of room for lying in the sun or enjoying cooking on the gas grill. There is a king-sized bed in the master and a queen (not a double) in the guest room. Granted the shower in the guest room is small but unfortunately these older homes do not have the space in the bathrooms that some of the newer homes have. I think we’ve all become a bit spoiled when it comes to the size of the homes we live in these days! As you mentioned there is a large enclosed private Hot and Cold Shower by the pool area that most people enjoy using on a regular basis. We do replace the mattresses as needed, but we have found the firmness of the mattresses is just be a matter of personal preference. We do have guests that tell us how comfortable the beds are!! We do hope you come back and visit in the future and we will do our best to accommodate your mattress preference.

Cozy comfortable cottage

  • 5 of 5

It was a girlfriend getaway and we couldn’t have found a better place to stay. We were very impressed at the professional decor and how clean it was and had everything we needed. We wished we could have stayed longer as it was so inviting!! Would definitely stay at the Beach Basket again. We loved it!!

Owner's Response: I’ve used the home many times for girl’s getaways as well and had a ball! Hope you had time to enjoy the proximity to the beach and the shops and restaurants. Anna Maria has some of the best restaurants and within walking distance. Please do come back to visit soon!!!

Great Week at Anna Maria

  • 5 of 5

The location is fantastic. Everything was very comfortable and welcoming. The house is decorated so cute, and contains everything that you need. There is even a beach tent and cart, etc. available for renters. We rented a golf cart also, and were able to run to get dinner - snacks - shopping & go to the piers easily . Everything was so cozy and comfortable that we didn't want to leave. - - - for families with small children, there are a lot of shells and little decorative things sitting around, so head's up

Owner's Response: Cynthia and Family, Beach Basket is located so close to one of the best beaches on the island and we do take full advantage of it as well. Being walking distance to the shops and restaurants is another of our favorite things about the home. Glad you found everything you needed and enjoyed the décor and found out home comfortable. Please do come back and see us soon!

AMAZING STAY!!!🦀

  • 5 of 5

Perfect location! The house and beds were comfortable. The shower in the second bedroom is very small, however, the covered outside shower made up for it. You will need to bring dish and laundry soap, paper towels, foil(other food coverings), baggies. The pool was very warm(could be 5-10 degrees cooler) in the summer. Try to bring everything you need for groceries Publix isn't far but with traffic it does take 20-40 minutes to get there. Not far from Pine street and other restaurants, it's a short bike ride. The sunrises and sunsets are breathtaking. Loved everything about our stay!

Owner's Response: Lori and Family, We love having guests like you that take such good care of our home! Thank you for that and for taking the time to review. Glad you liked the beds and yes, I love the outside shower and use that all the time that I am there! Unfortunately there isn’t much we can do about the temperature of the pool in July. It is actually cooler than the Gulf Water this time of year! Just an FYI for your next visit. There is a large Publix grocery store just before you hit the island. We always advice guests to stop there on the way in as the selection is much better, it is not as crowded AND the prices are MUCH better!! Pine Ave with all of its shops and restaurants is worth the bike ride or short walk. We usually walk along the beach to get there and it makes it even more pleasant and you can catch a sunrise or sunset on your way!! Please do come back to visit soon!

THANK YOU Beach Basket from CT!

  • 5 of 5

What a trip! We've traveled to Florida religiously since 2007 and vacationed at Anna Maria Island for the first time back in April 2014. We decided to come back this year and stayed at...111 Oak Ave. It was beyond what we expected. Homey, comfortable, clean and close to the beach. No complaints! WE LOOK FORWARD TO STAYING THERE AGAIN! Warm regards, Scott, Amy & Syd from CT

This home is located on Anna Maria Island, a quaint barrier island nestled in the Gulf of Mexico south of Tampa Bay. Here is one of the only places you can find where the 'old' Florida charm still exists. Seven miles of pristine white beaches awaits you and beautiful sunsets grace the island with their presence every night. The Island has every convenience needed including a Publix grocery store, CVS pharmacy, and Walgreens. There are multiple award winning restaurants that call the island home, such as the Beach Bistro, Sandbar, Beachhouse, and Sign of the Mermaid. Others not to miss are Rod and Reel Pier, Anna Maria City Pier, and Ginny and Jane-e's at the Old IGA. There is plenty of shopping available with hot spots such as the historic Pine Ave and Bridge Street areas. With the beach and the bay just minutes away from your front door, there is plenty to do in the water. Kayaking, snorkeling, fishing, jet-skiing, paddle boarding, and para-sailing are popular activities around Anna Maria Island. With the Island only being seven miles long, there is no need to drive when almost everything is within walking or biking distance. There is also a convenient Trolley Service that runs the length of the Island every day, and is free for everyone to ride. Anna Maria Island has something for everyone, and everyone who comes to visit falls in love with the Island, we are sure you will too.
