Looking for that place to kick back and relax your cares away? See the rave review from the NY Times about Anna Maria* and then check out ‘Triple Play Guest House.' There's a triple chance to play: (1) walk to the beach, (2) lounge in the pool or spa or patio or (3) launch a kayak, fish or just relax on one of our two docks on the canal.

Return to the time of “the fine art of doing nothing” as another NY writer describes the quiet north end of Anna Maria Island. Several years ago we discovered the island’s simple pleasures, beautiful beaches and wonderful homes. In all our travels around the world, it was Anna Maria where we kept returning. Nothing quite compares to the sugary white sand, the ease of access to beaches, the wonderful wildlife and ease of walking and biking. And sunsets, incredible sunsets!

We want you to experience the same vacation that we have come to enjoy throughout the years.

“Triple Play Guest House” is a 4 1/2 minute walk to the beach on the cherished North End of Anna Maria. We are no more than a ten minute walk to the Rod and Reel Pier pictured in the NY Times article and a beautiful 18 minute beach walk to the Sandbar Restaurant also described in the article.

Picture a 2 bedroom, 2 bath home of casual, upscale elegance. Sliding doors that disappear completely onto a fantastic lanai and beautiful heated pool and spa. Listen to the gentle sounds of the pool’s waterfall surrounded by tropical landscape and outside dining and lounging.

Each bedroom, has its own new flat screen HDTV to enjoy during that time off inside. Better yet, enjoy movie time on the large flat screen in the living area. The house has wi-fi, cable television, washer-dryer, and all the conveniences of home. The house is completely redone and brand new to the rental market as of March 2010.

We’re also not far from historic Pine Avenue where you can rent bikes, additional beach equipment, safe and unsinkable kayaks plus beach and baby equipment. Pull a wagon to the beach. It’s just a 4 1/2 minute walk to the Seagrape entrance at beautiful Bean Pointe where you will enjoy one of the world’s most beautiful white sand beaches. Watch the dolphins playfully swim or see the boats sail by.

Hop on your bikes for lunch at Ginny’s and Jane E’s. Enjoy their great BLT’s, cappuccino and sumptuous baked goods. Kids want to try fishing? Walk out your back yard. Or for an additional adventure, walk over to Rod & Reel Pier and when you grow a little hungry again, don’t forget to try their great island grouper sandwich. Catch a bite of dinner at the Sandbar, the Beach Bistro, the Waterfront, or any one of the fine restaurants on the north end and return to the beach with your chairs to catch the beautiful sunsets that take your breath away.

You will love Anna Maria Island and 'Triple Play Guest House��� is the perfect spot to remember what going to the beach is all about! Located on the quiet cul-de-sac of Iris Street. We invite you to come, relax in the casual elegance and enjoy the Triple Play Guest House!

Guestbook comments from the manager

We spent a marvelous week at this vacation paradise. The pool was a perfect relaxation after a long day of play at the beach. We rented bikes and would bike to the beach, bay, ice cream, lunch, you name it, we biked there. It is a short bike ride to about 6 different beach access entrances on the Gulf, and a short ride to the Bay side piers and park. The canal was a great plus, we went kayaking out to the bay. (Even saw a Manatee at the Bay!!)



The house was clean with modern updates. The beds were comfy, the bathrooms clean, internet, cable TV... all of the comforts of home. We grilled out several nights and lounged by the pool. We watched the fish jump while sitting on the dock having morning coffee.



I would recommend this home to a family, a honeymoon couple, an active young couple, an older couple ... even my boss!



We had a blast, and cannot wait to go back!



Happy Travels! :)

Absolutely captivating!

  • 5 of 5

This place is so perfect in every single way. The walk to the beach is just a few roads over and such an easy walk. The island is so quiet, private and peaceful! The beaches are stunning. I was a little hesitant to stay so far away from our home but found anna Maria island and I am so pleased with my decision.

Awesome property to rent

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved this house. Our 2nd trip to Anna Maria and this house and location were great. We loved the quiet neighborhood. The house had everything we needed. For our 2 boys, the pool and dock were excellent. We rented bikes for the week and toured around. We rented kayaks that we put in from our dock. The house was clean and bright. The pool area was secluded. I felt like I was in a tropical oasis. Just the right distance from the beach and pine ave. Bike ride to restaurants and shops. Great rental! Would definitely recommend!!

As wonderful as the pictures suggest

  • 5 of 5

After the previous review, it was with a little trepidation that we arrived at Triple Play, but the worry was unwarranted. While the dishes are still a little worn, the rest of the unit was wonderful. The landscaping is just as great as the pictures showed and we enjoyed spending as much time as we could outside. We ate in most of our meals and I found the kitchen supplies to be adequate. The home was cleaned very well.

It is a great home in a quiet area with very little traffic (its on a cul-de-sac). We rented bikes and rode the whole northern part of the island. It was an easy ride to any of the northern beaches and most of them had bike stands for locking them up.

One piece of advice to future renters - this rental agency, like many others, provides about one days worth of dishwasher soap and soap for one load of laundry. While there was some leftover dishwasher soap from previous renters at the home, I suspect that may not always be the case. Also the "shared pantry" didn't have any spices except for salt and pepper at this time.

We thoroughly loved Triple Play and will definitely rent it again if we have another trip to Anna Maria.

Nice

  • 3 of 5

Here was a lot to fix just after arrival but it was done directly. Wish the house was cleaner and the beautiful garden needs some nursering. The kitchen really needs some upgrade, not much tools, worn out plates. Some towles too bad to take to the beach. A big housecleaning, new towels and carpets in bathrooms, fully equipped kitchen and the house is fine.

A fabulous place to relax and wind down.

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at Triple Play and was just as good as we remembered. The areas around the pool and hot tub are so pretty, relaxing and peaceful - it's such a great place to unwind. We saw a couple of manatees from the dock, one of which spouted and snorted right in front of us. We also had a visit from a very inquisitive white egret who jumped up onto the chairs to admire his reflection in the window and shortly after that an Indian tortoise tanked across the patio!!

We love AMI (apart from the mozzy bites) and will certainly return sometime soon and Triple play is just perfect for us.
