Island Real Estate Vacations

As the number of COVID-19 Coronavirus cases in Florida continue to rise and with events in Manatee and Sarasota counties being canceled or rescheduled, we at ISLAND REAL ESTATE VACATIONS, LLC want to inform our Rental Owners and Vacationing Guests that the risk so far in Manatee County is low with 162 confirmed cases as of Tuesday morning April 7th, 2020.  There has been one confirmed case out of Holmes Beach on Anna Maria Island.

Book with CONFIDENCE.  Our guests’ safety is our top priority, and for stays through June 23rd, 2020, we’ll be waiving all COVID-19 cancellation fees. No fine print here, 100% refunds!  If you have questions about your stay or the latest news on Anna Maria Island, please don't hesitate to call us (941) 778-6066 or email

We want to assure our guests, owners and support services that we are taking proper precautions and doing everything we can to make sure our vacation properties are properly cleaned prior to any guest or owner stay.  We have employed a heightened sick policy for our employees; team members who aren’t feeling well due to the common cold or other health concerns are required to work from home so not to affect our staff or customers. In addition, our contracted cleaners have switched to using EPA-approved emerging viral pathogen disinfectants on common areas for extra prevention here in the retail office and in the vacation properties prior to your arrival.

Update: 4-7-2020.  Holmes Beach AND Anna Maria City will be allowing residents and vacation renters to continue to use the beach access points OUTSIDE those closed to public beaches (Manatee beach).   Holmes Beach and Anna Maria City will be significantly limiting off street parking to further ensure beachgoers are residents or vacation renters in the City.  The State of Florida is not allowing guest arrivals for all vacation rentals in the State of Florida until April 30th, 2020.Sorry, no information on Bradenton Beach but this means beaches are open to renters and residents from the tip of Anna Maria Island to approximately 28th Street North.  Anna Maria Island restaurants are closed to sit down dining however take out is currently unlimited. 

The health and wellbeing of our Owners, Vacationing Guests and our Staff is of the upmost importance and we will continue to monitor this situation and update everyone as things change. Thank you for your business and continued support. We value you and looking forward to making your vacation on Anna Maria Island perfect!

Thank you,
