About Emma

As a small boutique rental agency we pride ourselves on selecting only a handful of the newest, most pristine vacation rentals. We have chosen homes to suit all group sizes and specifications without compromising the highest standards we hold ourselves to. Being this discerning has earned us the trust of many vacationers who have come back year after year.

We are also one of the few agencies with a focus on homes from Anna Maria Island to Siesta Key. We know that while many people are happy to return to the same vacation spot year after year, others like to try out new places. We hope our personalized service and spectacular homes will allow you to truly experience the islands as they were meant to be!

Why Emma chose Anna Maria Island

The beach, the backyard and the bungalow.

It's tough to find a house in this location with all the amenities this house has to offer. It is the culmination of years of planning, saving and creating and the owners are thrilled to be able to share it with others as part of their vacation memories.

Because this is a bungalow it is accessible for all ages. (please note there are 3 steps up into the house and 4 steps down to the pool level in the back yard). With so many children likely to visit, the owners wanted a home where they could run around without worrying about stairs or not being able to see what they were up to. They also recognize that many 'snow birds' appreciate the convenience of staying in a ground level home. It is a luxury that is slowly disappearing as 2-story homes take over the rental market.

The interior finishing's are all top of the line. You will appreciate the luxe bedding and linens and well stocked kitchen. The mattresses are top of the line. We can promise sweet dreams.

Another huge benefit of this property is the backyard - at 2-3 times the size of most AMI homes this yard is truly a tropical paradise. The pool is one of the largest on the island and features a hot tub and seating area (positioned to see the t.V. In the cabana). The cabana houses a lounge area with cozy furniture and custom wet bar made by a local artist.

You have finally found your 'dream house'. Enjoy!

What makes this bungalow unique

Anna Maria Island possesses old Florida charm and has all the amenities of the larger, over developed and more crowded islands. Perfect powder-white sand beaches run the length of its west coast with the stunning blues of the Gulf of Mexico constantly lapping at its shores. The free trolley service will take you virtually anywhere on the island. Dozens of great restaurants, bars and shopping experiences are all right on your doorstep. Car or no car - you're all set!

Second time - still wonderful

Our second stay at this property in the past two years. Every single thing was perfect. Super-quiet street, and all the new construction is complete. Book this property with confidence.

ABSOLUTELY AWESOME IN EVERY WAY!!

  • 5 of 5

I can not say enough great things about this property. We had absolutely NO issues during our mother/daughter trip to celebrate 4 family's very special friendships. Beach was a block away...beautiful pool and hot tub with plenty of shaded seating in the PRIVATE back yard. We para-sailed while we were there, took a sunset dolphin watching tour, and shopped this awesome little area. Getting around on the island was not hard at all. This is an awesome location for all ages. We plan to come back and re-do this awesome vacation in a couple of years. THANKS FOR AN AWESOME VACATION DESTINATION!! WE LOVED IT!!!

Amazing home managed by amazing people!

  • 5 of 5

This house was absolutely perfect! This is our 4th trip to Anna Maria and we usually stay in the same house every year. This year we chose somewhere different and are very happy we did. Everything exceeded our expectations. Emma and Claire, the managers, were unbelievably accommodating. The property was exquisite and had so many extras! The back yard was fantastic with the pool, hot tub and cabana. I just can't say enough about this place. We will DEFINITELY be back next year and will most certainly be using Emma and Claire again!

Great vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We all had such a great time this past week at mermaid crossing, what a beautiful house! There were 6 adults and 6 kids and we had plenty of room! The kids spent countless hours in the pool while the adults enjoyed the outdoor bar and tv. It was nice to have such a short walk to the beach too. The kids enjoyed having the kayaks. This was our first time to Anna Maria and we would definitely love to come back.

A wonderful week at a top-notch vacation house

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week here. We were an extended family (Grandma & grandpa, the kids and their kids). We had so much fun using the pool and sitting outside in the cabana while one of us used the grill to make dinner for all of us. The house is spacious (4 BR with 3 King beds, 1BR with bunk beds), the kitchen is beautiful and the dining room table seats 8 or 10. Everything about this property is top quality. The house is about a block from the beach (two half-blocks really.) Our rhythm was the beach in the morning, the pool in the afternoon and back to the beach at sunset. We went bike riding (3 bikes are available) and used the kayaks (2 are available.) I give this place my highest recommendation, A+++. We'll be back. Emma, thank you so much.
