Beach Dance is the perfect family home in a convenient location just steps to the Gulf, Restaurants, Shops and the Free Trolley! Not enough? Check out the view from the living area and the panoramic Beach views from the roof top deck! For our convenience there is an Elevator that takes you from the garage level to either of the living levels and a spiral staircase to the Roof Top Deck from the main living area!!

Built for rest and relaxation but meeting the very high standards that you would expect from a luxury home no detail has been over-looked from the stainless appliances, granite countertops, and contoured high ceilings to the long list of other amenities. Beach Dance includes a floor plan that lends itself to privacy for all but leaves plenty of room for the whole family to enjoy the home together.

Imagine waking up to the sound of the surf rolling in. Enjoy your morning coffee or tea on the deck as the sun comes up and the island comes to life. Spend the day on the beach, cool off in the pool, or walk to shops and restaurants. Gather around the dining room table for dinner with the sun setting over the Gulf as your backdrop.

With 5 bedrooms, 5 full baths and 2 half baths there is room for the whole family and everyone has their privacy and personal space. The bedrooms are beautifully decorated and include 1 King in the master suite, 3 Queens Suites and a 5th Suite with 2 Twin bunk beds for up to 12 guests. The King Master Bath includes twin sinks, Jacuzzi Tub, Large Glass shower and one of two full size washer/dryer combos. The rest of the suites include full baths as well with either glass walk-in showers or shower/tub combinations.

Beach Dance is the ideal place to kick back and relax with all the comforts of home but if you must stay in touch with the real world there’s 55” flat screen TV’s in the Living Area and Pool Cabana as well as a 46” in the master and a 32” in the children’s room. High Speed Wi-Fi Internet access is of course provided.

There are pool and beach toys and chairs as well as a beach cart and a beach umbrella.

                                                              Kari J.

                                                              We had a wonderful time at this beautiful house. It is so close to the beach, shopping and restaurants. We walked everywhere. I really liked that each bedroom had its own private bath! The only reason I am giving it four stars is we were so disappointed in the hit-or-miss wifi.

                                                              Wonderful Family Vacation Spot- Exceeded All Expectations

                                                              Nicole D.

                                                              What a fantastic family vacation!! We absolutely loved everything about our stay at Beach Dance.

                                                              The layout of the home was well thought out and built to house large groups. Loved that we were able to accommodate our family of 9 in private rooms and ensuite bathrooms. The house is beautifully styled and we'll maintained. The house is also fully stocked with everything you could possibly need. I was surprised to see how well prepared the kitchen was with plenty of cookware, gadgets and serving platters for our large group. Much more than you typically find at a rental. I also appreciated the large inventory of beach gear. More than enough chairs, umbrellas, beach toys, etc. for our full family.

                                                              The location of the house was also fantastic. Close proximity to the beach and convenience of being located near a shopping plaza which had everything you can need from groceries, bike rentals, old fashioned ice cream shop, tourist beach shop, etc. At first I wasn't sure about the location being so close the main road and a shopping center. But it was really was absolutely perfect. Street noise was never an issue and we loved the convenience of being steps away from the shopping plaza to grab random supplies as needed (which we literally ran to multiple times a day). Also loved the beach views from the main living space and roof levels.

                                                              The island itself is very quiet with not a ton of nightlife- which made it a perfect spot for a family vacation with young children. We loved being active during the daytime and happy to get everyone off to bed by early evening.

                                                              Finally, I found the property managers to be extremely responsive and ensured that every ask was met. Overall I could not have been happier with the property and our stay at Beach Dance.

                                                              Beautiful home close to the beach, stores, and restaurants.

                                                              Rental agency staff is very easy to work with and attentive. The house has everything you could possibly need from cooking, linens or the beach. I would recommend this home to any family or large group and would definitely rent again myself. Thank you for an awesome week!

                                                              Beach Dance Rental, 3/3-10

                                                              John G.Eldersburg, MD

                                                              Our group was very pleased with the Beach Dance, we all thought we made a good choice for our weeks accommodations. Great location with beautiful views, the sunsets from the rooftop deck were breathtaking. We were also very pleased that the property was so well stocked with beach chairs, umbrellas, & beach towels.

                                                              The only problems were that the third floor bedroom toilet was very noisy when flushed, & the cable box remote control was a bit difficult to operate at times, but these were minor issues.

                                                              We plan to return to Anna Maria Island in the future & would certainly consider renting at Beach Dance again.

                                                              We enjoyed working with GIVR, they were very considerate of our concerns; particularly pleased we were able to get access to the property a few hours early on Sat.
