The sunshine state is filled with beautiful beaches and entertaining cities to spend your next vacation. With so many great choices it can be difficult to decide the best place to visit for your next beachfront vacation in Florida. Here at Island Real Estate, we offer amazing Anna Maria Island vacation rentals – and maybe we’re a little bit biased but we feel you can’t go wrong with a vacation on our gorgeous white sandy beach island. Here are all the reasons why you should choose Anna Maria Island for your next Florida vacation!
6 Reasons To Visit Anna Maria Island, FL For Your Next Vacation
Set along the central part of Florida’s western gulf coast Anna Maria is a barrier island with multiple white sugary sand beaches. Stroll along the western shoreline dipping your toes in the water, let your children build beautiful sand dollar sandcastles, or just take in the gorgeous painted skies of our majestic sunsets. There are a number of beaches to choose from depending on whether you’re looking for something perfect for the family or something a little more private. Holmes Beach, Bradenton Beach, Coquina Beach, and Bean Point Beach all offer a fantastic way to spend your vacation.
Part of the charm of staying on Anna Maria Island is the fact that you can park your car at your Florida beach rental for the week and enjoy our quaint way of getting around the island. A free trolley that runs the length of the Island going from Anna Maria City Pier at the north end down to Coquina Beach at the southern tip makes it easy to travel around. On top of that there are numerous golf cart rental, bike rental, or even segway rental options as well. And the island has many biking and walking paths to make getting from one place to another a breeze.
Because we are on an island off of the main strip we offer our guests good old-fashioned Florida hospitality. The residents of Anna Maria Island have fought hard to maintain the friendly yesteryear feel of Florida and welcome guests with open arms. We invite you to see for yourself how lovely staying on Anna Maria Island can be.
Not only does our gorgeous western Florida coast location give you the opportunity to view some of the best sunsets, because we are centrally located along Florida’s west coast, but Anna Maria Island is also only a short drive from the mainland where you can take in a Tampa Bay Lightning hockey game or Tampa Bay Rays baseball game, go golfing, visit nearby Sarasota for some excellent shopping, or if you’ve got the kids with you Disney World, Universal Studios, and Legoland are all only a few hours drive away.
Our Entertainment Options
If you’re planning to stay on the Island all week there’s no shortage of ways to spend your time. Besides the many beaches Anna Maria Island has to offer we also have a number of other great entertainment options:
- Picnic areas
- A farmer’s market

What A Satisfied Guest Says About Their Vacation With Island Real Estate on Google.
I rented a house for Thanksgiving week from Island Real Estate and it was perfect. I had searched for weeks on Airb&b and found the options lacking, and was so happy when I found Island Real Estate as they had better options at better prices. They were extremely responsive and COVID-safe, our check-in/out process was seamless and contact free, and the house/yard/spa were in great condition, almost brand new. Highly recommend renting from them if you’re looking to stay on AMI.
