How to Pick the Best Vacation Rental Home for You

With over 170 vacation rental properties, deciding which is the best vacation rental home may confuse you. We have plenty of options to suit you – just let us know what your preferences are! Here are some tips to help you narrow down your choices, and find a home perfect for your vacation to Anna Maria Island!


The first thing to consider is how many people you are traveling with, and how many beds you will need. Several of our vacation rental homes have sleeper sofas, or bunk rooms, which may work for kids. We also have homes that have multiple master suites, which is nice if you are traveling with multiple families.

Most of our homes have pools. Some are heated, which is especially nice if you are traveling in the winter months. We also have condos for rent, which feature shared pools. And select homes have hot tubs. Jumping in the pool after a day at the beach is a nice treat!

Anna Maria Island is seven miles long, and only one mile wide at maximum. In reality, everything is close by and easy to get to. But it is important to consider how far you’re willing to walk to your beach of choice, or if you’d like to be able to walk to Bridge Street or Pine Avenue. You can always rent a wagon from Beach Bums┬áto help cart your beach supplies, or take the free trolley to a shopping location. We also have beachfront homes and condos, as well as cottages right on Pine Avenue if you want to be in the center of it all. If you are bringing a boat, or want easy access to kayaking, we suggest renting a canal front home.

Extra Space

When traveling, common space is where you will interact and enjoy each others company. Some of our homes have game rooms to facilitate the fun over a game of ping pong. There are also multiple living rooms in some homes to divide up the kids and adults during times of relaxation.
