Overview

About the property

2 Bedroom, 1 Bath, Private Dock With Amazing Views

Located on the "best" street on Anna Maria Island, this two-bedroom, one-bath second floor vacation rental with a spectacular view was completely renovated at the end of 2015. The renovation included basically everything from floor to ceiling. Notice the pictures and reviews, they speak for themselves.

Growing up about 15 minutes off the island and enjoying the beach so much, my wife and I (and three kids) decided to purchase our piece of paradise. We found this "bungalow" in the Bayou and just couldn't pass it up. We knew we wanted to be on the water with our own boat dock and on the north end of Anna Maria. We found this location to be absolutely perfect. The views are incredible. Sitting from your couch in the living room, you can see the lighthouse on Egmont Key. Anna Maria Sound view's galore.

The bungalow is on historic Pine Ave. It is very close to everything a vacationer could want. Fabulous restaurants, ice cream shops, shopping, fishing, amazing beaches, breath-taking sunsets and more. Anna Maria Island has been chosen as the #3 prettiest city in the country and also in the top 10 "Island Beaches for Perfect Sand". Drive to our Bungalow and park your car for your entire stay. The free island trolley has a stop right outside your door and goes up and down the spectacular 7 mile island seven days a week. Fish and kayak from your own dock. Absolute paradise!

Why Lisa Costello chose Anna Maria

Growing up about 15 minutes off the island and enjoying the beach so much, my wife, three kids and I decided to purchase our piece of paradise. We found this "bungalow" in the Bayou and just couldn't pass it up. We knew we wanted to be on the water with our own boat dock and on the north end of Anna Maria. We found this location to be absolutely perfect. The views are incredible. Sitting from your couch in the living room, you can see the lighthouse on Egmont Key. Anna Maria Sound view's galore.

What makes this bungalow unique

We absolutely fell in love with this the moment we saw it. It had the dock we wanted, the water views and was on the best street on the island. Once you get here, you can park your car for the remainder of your stay. The free trolley runs everyday. Absolute paradise!

Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Unforgettable experience. Bungalow is very spacious, nicely remodeled. Balcony is a prime spot for breakfast with beach views, white powder beaches every direction you go, parking a car was never an issue (it’s not like you need one anyways). Amazing craft, coffee and ice cream shops within 2 min walk on pine street. Kayaking canals was a different world experience too with manatee encounters, birds and big snook laying under piers. There’s chairs and umbrellas in the bungalow which was a big treat for us. We will be back!!!

LOVED Bungalow On The Bayou!!

  • 5 of 5

The Bungalow On The Bayou was the perfect rental for us in a perfect spot on the island. Decorated super cute - island themed and had everything we needed. I’d have to say my favorite part was the back deck and dock...I could have sat out there all day and night. We also really enjoyed the kayak and took it out everyday but sadly no manatee sightings. But I was entertained by a pod of dolphin early one morning. The condo is within easy walking distance to the shops and the gulf side beach. Tops for my daughter was Two Scoops Ice Cream Shop literally right across the street. Thanks for sharing your gem with us!!

Beautiful !

  • 5 of 5

What a place to stay ! We loved everything about it, the location, view, decor and all the amenities.

It's a lovely spot nice and quite but always something to do and things to see. The Manatees every day up and down the canal are a real treat, we even had a dolphin swim past one day. We had hours of fun on the kayak and fishing from the dock.

The trolley and beach equipment is really good and its only a few minutes walk to the beach on the bay side. It was nice and quite during our stay. Also real close to the free buss that leaves every 20 minutes.

Inside the bungalow is furnished beautifully and very tasteful. Every thing you need is inside and the bed is huge and really comfortable. Great sound system and a selection of cds.

Don't miss the sunrise from the bay side and the walk around bean point is a must. We can't wait to come back some time soon. Thanks for a great vacation.

The Cutest Bungalow with Amazing Water View

  • 5 of 5

Mike and Lisa have put a lot of love and care into their cute condo. The location is amazing and we loved the water views. We used the kayak daily and were lucky to have a manatee swim by us. We tried our hand at fishing thanks to the fishing poles. We enjoyed going to the beach everyday and the chairs and umbrella were perfect for those long days at the beach. The condo is so nicely decorated and everything you need is there! We will be back again!

The condo is very clean and newly decorated. It is well-stocked with everything you could possibly need. There are fishing poles, beach chairs, umbrella, and kayak for your pleasure. Lisa and Mike Costello are available and willing to answer all questions. Loved our stay.
