Vacation Homes

Home Away From Home

You're in for a big treat when you decide to rent a vacation home on Anna Maria Island this year as an alternative to hotel lodging.   If you are used to staying at hotels this will be an entirely more comfortable, effortless experience for you and your family.  All the comforts of home are at your fingertips along with a great value. 

Vacation home rentals are gaining in popularity among families.  Whether you rent a little cottage, a condo or a large beach home, you will have easy access to all the convenience of a home without the hassle of staying at a hotel.  Coastal Cottages AMI provides a variety of beach home experiences to choose from along with concierge services to make your stay more comfortable.  Baby supplies, such as cribs, carriages, and baby seats are available.  Along with all sorts of bikes, trikes, and four wheeled family vehicles. 

Prices are comparable to hotel stays and sometimes even less.   Instead of cramming a cot into a hotel room, sharing a crowded bathroom, or trying to organize renting two adjacent hotel rooms, a vacation home rental could be the answer.  All the comforts of home in one place.   With a minimum of two bedrooms and pullout sofas, most vacation homes can accommodate at least six vacationers.  Homes are available that sleep eight or ten family members, too.  And, don't forget, families can save additional money by preparing meals in a fully equipped kitchen.

Most vacation homes are fully furnished including extra bed linens, sets of towels, dishes, glasses, cups, coffee pots, sometimes even crockpots are included.  Most offer washers/dryers, dishwashers, barbecues, patio tables, plastic wear, and actually, almost anything you might use at home.  You supply the food, and you're ready for a family get-together. 

Many families will need one large beach vacation home, but we have multiple families booking nearby houses, too, so the extended family can join in on the fun.  You get your own bedroom and often times your own bathroom, too.  Enjoy your coffee by the pool or on the deck still wearing your pj's.  It's a calm, leisurely experience for your family without the hassle of hotel hallways, ice machines, late-night parties, and crowded rooms.  You're not stuck with the hotel continental breakfast; you can eat as you do at home.  Full-sized refrigerators and stoves allow you to have the kind of food you want.  Families save money by preparing lunches for the beach.  And, if you'd like to arrive to a fully stocked refrigerator, then just let our Coastal Cottages vacation specialist arrange for this service.  Prices vary depending upon items you need.

Unlike a hotel room, vacation homes offer all the conveniences of a home by the beach.  You'll find selections of paperbacks for easy reading while you lounge in the sun, beach chairs, umbrellas, beach towels, and sometimes even beach wagons to carry all your beach items (including your kids!).  Vacation homes give you an opportunity to get into the rhythm of being a local.  Make the choice.  Create memories that will last a lifetime.  Experience what it's like to live where other people vacation!

  1. My husband and I recently rented a beach cottage from Coastal Cottages. We were delightfully surprised to find board games for the kids, a beautifully "beachy" furnished home with everything you could ever need in the kitchen (even corkscrews, cloth napkins and a cooler!). We loved having the extra living space not available in a hotel. Bravo!

  2. Coastal Cottages is our go to vacation destination provider for Anna Maria Island. They have the best staff and services on the island! We have been vacationing there for years and finally bought our own piece of paradise last year. Sue and her staff are courteous and top notch professionals! They will make your vacation experience as easy as packing your toothbrush and booking your airfare. The referrals for where to eat, fish, & shop were priceless on our first visit! We feel truly blessed to have met all of them and can't wait to get back to put our toes in the sand and laugh!
