Bay Front House With Private Dock
average rating of 4.9 based on 50 reviews

Peaceful, beautiful bayside home w lovely large patio to watch birds and boats

  • 5 of 5

Definitely our home-away-from-home. House has everything - private and has own dock. View of the bay from the patio is unbeatable. Terry (owner) is very responsive. Home is spacious and comfy - just what is needed for a relaxing getaway . This was our 4th stay and we'll definitely be back next year!

Great location!

  • 4 of 5

We had a great vacation. We loved having the dock for our boat as well as the house being located so close to the beach and downtown.

Location is Amazing

  • 5 of 5

The location of the home is amazing, close to everything right on the bayside and the beach is a short 3 minute walk up the street. The house is equipped with everything you will need, I cooked Thanksgiving dinner and the kitchen has everything.

The only drawback of this rental is the age and decor of the house. Very dated with low ceilings. The outside however is great with fire pit, kayaks, lounge chairs, tree swing and outdoor drinking and dining furniture and dock.

I would recommend this place, it is what it is, and that is a great place to stay on Anna Maria Island with out all the extra charges and hassles of condo renting

Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved it here! Such a great location, lots to see and do, and was super nice to have boat right at the house. If you have a big boat you must watch the tides though, low tide is not your friend as it is quite shallow getting to and at the dock. Other than that, we couldn’t have asked for anything more. Owner was super nice and helpful.

Thanks for letting us stay

Great House and Location!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time. The house was perfect and in a great location. The beach, restaurants and bars just a two minute walk away. We really enjoyed just sitting outback on the dock and watching the boats, dolphins and fish jump. Terry the owner is an exceptional host. We will definitely be back again!!

Terrific house and location!

  • 5 of 5

Two great experiences w one property. Relaxing on the patio watching dolphins in the bay. Or sunning on the beach that’s a very short walk across the island. And a good restaurant and bar on the way to the beach. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. It provided all we needed. Terry is an exceptional host.
