Take a chair and a beach towel and spend the day gathering shells, soaking up the sun and catching up on some well-deserved rest.

Why Jill Kennedy, Manager chose Anna Maria Island

We fell in love with this place due to it's location, it's potential, it's charm and it's amenities. All things considered, it is still the best value on the island!

Couldn't have stayed at a better place!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here with my husband and our 4 children. We could not have picked a better place! First, the cottage was super clean and very nicely decorated. The beds were extremely comfortable! We loved having the pool right outside our bedroom door. The children really enjoyed swimming at night. The cottage was in the perfect location...steps from the beach and right next to a trolley stop. I cannot begin to tell you how nice it was to have the trolley stop right there when traveling with 4 kids! When my 9 year old daughter is asked what her favorite part of our vacation was, she says "our beach house." Jill, the owner, was fabulous to work with and we will definitely rent from her again. It was a great experience!

Love this place!

  • 5 of 5

We were in love with our cottage at first site. Tastefully decorated and so homey. THE most comfortable beds. A private pool outside our bedroom and the beach across the street!. We could see the sun rise three blocks to the east.....and set across the street. We have already booked our stay for next year. Oh...and the owner, Jill. Can't say enough nice things about her. She would check in just to make sure we were happy and to see if there was anything that we needed. Love her! See you next year!

December getaway

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Coconut Vacations and Anna Marie Island. The condo was well equipped and oh so close to the beautiful beach! Great restaurants and the trolley was most convenient. Jill was a great host and attentive. Loved the pool right outside our door. Thanks for a great vacation.

cozy little cottage

  • 5 of 5

I have had a lovely time staying at Coconut vacation rentals! Everything has been just perfect. I came down here to visit a friend who lives in Bradenton and this place has worked out great. I stayed in unit 1, which is a two bedroom. It is exactly what you think of when you picture a cute little beach cottage. Very nicely decorated, cozy, yet pretty spacious for a cottage, clean, and a nice pool to relax in. Thanks Jill for everything! I will definitely recommend this place to family and friends and will definitely return as well!
