About the Property

3 Bedroom/2 Bath Newly Renovated, Sleeps 6

The newest of the “Basket Family”, Mermaid’s Basket is sure to please! If you are unfamiliar with the other basket, Beach Basket (VRBO Listing #440105) is one of the finest vacation rentals on Anna Maria Island. Just 2/10 of a mile from the white sand beaches and the perfectly clear waters of Anna Maria Island you will feel right at home in this newly renovated oasis of relaxation and sunshine! The owner who is a professional decorator has made this her latest project and it has been furnished by the Pink Pineapple as the other Baskets are with that great Beachy Feel!

Mermaid’s Basket is a 3 bedroom, 2 bath home with plenty of open living space to enjoy the island lifestyle. The kitchen offers 42' cabinets, Granite counters and recessed lighting. Marble floors throughout and Ceiling Fans in every room for that great Island Feel. Outside there is a Brick Paved Patio, Hot and Cold Shower and a heated pool!

The King Master suite is located on the opposite site of the living area from the Queen Bedroom. This Queen bedroom can function as a second suite with a door to the bedroom and also another “pocket door” after the second bath to create an en suite area! Leave the pocket door open and there is access from the living area or the third bedroom to the bath! The third bedroom has two twins with a private entrance to the pool area. If you don’t need a third bedroom this room can function as an office or den or just a private nook for you to relax and enjoy a good book and a frozen cocktail! All of the bedrooms offer privacy as they are each located in a different area of the home.

Mermaid’s Basket has become one of our most popular homes so book well in advance to find out why!!

Anna Maria Island is located on the Central West Coast of Florida nestled between the tropical blue waters of the Gulf of Mexico to the West and Tampa Bay to the North. Once a best –kept secret among local Floridians, it is now known as a vacation favorite among local, national and international travelers. From honeymooners to Hollywood film crews, youngsters to the young-at-heart, people from around the world have discovered what’s awaiting you – Your Piece of Paradise, 'An Island In The Sun'… The island consists of 3 cities, Bradenton Beach being the southernmost, Holmes Beach in the middle and Anna Maria City on the Northern tip. Each community has its own distinct character but all have that relaxed old Florida Charm with unique and charming shops and restaurants. Anna Maria Island has miles of sugar white sand beaches, sand dunes, sea oats and Australian Pines lying between the Gulf of Mexico and the Intercoastal Waterway. This destination is a natural choice for tropical vacationers looking for golf, tennis, water sports, shopping, plus many cultural and historical attractions. Located close to all the major attractions, yet far from the maddening crowds make the Gulf Island Beaches the ideal vacation spot. Enjoy a sunrise overlooking Tampa Bay and a picture-perfect Florida sunset all in a day… You need never leave the island to find fun and relaxation. Our island is only 7 miles long and no more than a few blocks wide which leaves you with sounds of waves and visions of the sunset in every location. Enjoy a day at the beach and watch the kids play in the sand. Walk along pristine beaches and dine in award-winning restaurants, Enjoy fresh grouper sandwiches on a pier and sipping martinis while enjoying live music. Go shopping in our specialty shops and boutiques all along the island. We even have a Free Trolley to take you where you want to go. The friendly environment and endless activities will keep you coming back for more. Hop aboard and experience island paradise!
