Beach N Bay
Don't miss your chance to stay at the North end of Anna Maria Island in the highly desirable village of Anna Maria, one of Coastal Living Magazine's Top 10 Happiest Seaside Towns for 2018!
Pool heat/cooling included!
Located right in the middle of all that happiness, Beach 'n' Bay is the island vacation cottage duplex that's so tropical and fun, you'll swear you can hear steel drums!
Ideally situated at the corner of Spring and Crescent Avenues, it's right in the middle of everything the village of Anna Maria has to offer. An easy stroll will take you to our gorgeous Gulf of Mexico beaches, the Anna Maria Community Theater, shops, award winning restaurants, the Anna Maria City Pier, the Anna Maria Historic Society Museum, and the shores of Tampa Bay. You can even find shuffleboard courts and some lively competition tucked away behind the Anna Maria City Hall. If your preference is more strenuous exercise, the Community Center is right around the corner, complete with tennis courts and exercise facilities. They also offer pickle ball and yoga, two activities popular with locals and visitors alike. Stops for the free Island Trolley, which runs the length of the Island every day from 6 in the morning until 10 at night. It couldn't get any better than this!
If you like hanging out under the sun and stars when you're in Florida, Beach 'n' Bay will be the perfect place to call home! Be sure to pack your mini drink umbrellas, because you'll want to jump right in the pool, tropical drink in hand, and soak up the Anna Maria sunshine! This fantastic, private salt water pool isn't just heated for wintertime enjoyment, it's one of only a handful of pools on the Island that are cooled for those hot summer months! At one end you'll find a tanning ledge, designed for sunbathing with your toes in the water -- also a great place to supervise little ones. On the other end you'll find a swim-up bar table and stools, as well as a spa.
Lovely bronze herons serve as deck jets, shooting water into the pool. Your outdoor amenities are rounded out with a big grill that offers options for smoking, as well as cooking with gas or with charcoal. There's also a drink cooler, a firepit surrounded by Adirondack chairs, an outdoor shower, and a screened porch with flat panel TV.
Inside you'll find charming tropical décor with a beachy vibe, including that marvelous Mid-Century Modern invention: terrazzo floors. It's the PERFECT surface for the beach, with its cool, smooth finish dashed with sparkles. Both the eat-in kitchen and the bathroom have been updated with quartz countertops and lovely finishes. When you're ready to watch tv or stream your favorite shows, you'll find a flat panel tv in the living room, as well as one each bedroom (and don't forget the one out on the screened porch!).
Days in the sunshine and on the water always make for a good night's sleep, but room-darkening curtains in each bedroom will help you sleep late whenever you'd like. Each bedroom overlooks the pool, with one featuring a king bed complete with a Tempur-Pedic® mattress, and the other has two cool-gel memory foam twin beds that can be turned into another king (simply let our office know ahead of your arrival to insure the transformation). If necessary, extra guests can sleep comfortably on the queen sleeper sofa in the living room.
The newly added laundry room doubles as a pool changing room. Bring your wet items straight from the pool to the dryer, and enter back through the dining room.
The pool is private for this side of the duplex. It is being heated and cooled to the perfect temperature all year round which is included in the rental fee.
Please no smoking inside, in the lanai, or by the pool area. There is a designated smoking area by the fire pit in front of the house.
Pool heaters in private homes are locked for your safety and controls must not be tampered with as they are monitored by the pool company. 86° F is the highest heat temperature setting which might not be reached at all times. Please note if cold days and nights occur, water temperatures will drop and may stay cooler longer. Pool heaters will not operate and will automatically shut down if outside temperatures get too cold. While we take every precaution to ensure that pools are heated as specified, weather conditions may affect the temperature of the pool. Nothing can be done about this issue. Outdoor spas are not hot tubs and require heat at the additional cost. The temperature of a spa is typically set at the same temperature as the pool. In the event of pool equipment malfunction during your stay, Duncan Real Estate will expedite repairs as quickly as possible. It may be necessary to close swimming pools for maintenance purposes. No refund or rent adjustment will be made for circumstances beyond our control, malfunctions or loss of use of equipment or amenities.
Pet friendly property for dogs up to 50lbs. The non-refundable pet fee is $150.00-200 depending on size per pet and will be charged for each week. Short stays are not pro-rated. The pet fee does not cover any damage caused by the pet. Pets are not allowed in the pool area.

"This was the second visit to this property. So comfortable and relaxing. Great place to stay, conveniently located to everything. I would recommend this property to anyone interested in a calm, relaxing, easy vacation rental. Has everything you need in a home away from home." Airbnb guest November, 2021 "Had an Amazing and Relaxing week! This place is absolutely gorgeous. The pool was Amazing and we had everything we needed in the place. We have been coming to AMI for the last 14 years and this place has been our very favorite. We will be back next year - we have found our "Piece of Heaven". Thank you!" Airbnb guest October, 2021 "Beach N Bay was amazing! My two daughters (10 & 12) loved everything about this place. From the moment we entered the front door, they ran squealing with excitement through the house, thinking it was the best thing ever. Within 10 minutes we were in the pool. The location can't be beat and everyone in Anna Maria is so friendly and hospitable. The owners are so friendly, kind, and helpful. They take a ton of pride in this location and it shows. They made our stay wonderful and were so lovely. My girls have already asked to come back every year and stay in this house. Just a heads up, and to no fault of the owner or host, but because of covid, there are no basic spices or condiments left in the house. So if you're planning on cooking, either bring some with or be prepared to buy them at the store. Otherwise, this house has everything you need!!! Regarding Duncan, they were awesome with commination, giving suggestions and recommendations, speedy answers to all my questions, and even offered comfort and peace of mind about three possible incoming storm Fred. They were all awesome to work with. Top notch experience all the way around. We'll definitely be back!" Airbnb guest August, 2021 "This is now our 6th visit to Anna Maria, and every year we are more discerning in what makes a rental house "perfect" Well done Beach N'Bay! When a house is just as nice inside during a (brief) storm as it is outside - that's a win! Thank you! Airbnb guest June, 2021 "This was the perfect location for our getaway! We thoroughly enjoyed the pool area, it was amazing! It was super easy to get to either the Gulf or the bay depending on where you wanted to adventure. We’d highly recommend and would definitely stay again!" Airbnb guest June, 2021 "This property was wonderful. All of the amenities that we needed. The pool was fabulous and we were close to beach, bay, activities and restaurants. Loved this place!" VRBO guest May, 2021 "What a great place! My husband and I visit here at AMI often and this was the fist time without our grown children. This house was perfect for the two of us. It had everything we needed and the location was awesome. This house is such a little gem! Thank you so much for such a great retreat." May, 2021 "We had a wonderful time here. Our best vacation yet! The house was perfect. All the decorations in the house made us feel like we were at the beach even while we were inside. The pool and outdoor area are truly an oasis. The shower was perfect for after pool and beach. So happy we chose this place! Thank you SO much! We have so many great memories now from AMI and Beach N Bay." May, 2021 "Our family absolutely loved our stay. The house was perfect. It has a TV in every room, including the screened patio. The shower was great. There’s also an outdoor shower in front that’s perfect for after the beach. The pool is fabulous, it’s beautifully lit at night and has great chairs in the pool for lounging with an umbrella for shade. The beds were super comfy. The house is decorated with so many "beachy" details, we felt like we were at the beach even while indoors. Located just blocks from the beach and walking distance to tons of great restaurants. I highly recommend this place for a perfect vacation." VRBO guest May, 2021 "We had the most AMAZING time here! The pool, the hot tub, the shower, the patio, the kitchen, right down to the TV in the bedroom, this place was PERFECT! We loved spending our week in AMI at the Beach 'N' Bay! I have been here so many times since I was only 6 months old and this place was one of the best I've EVER stayed in! Can't wait to come back!" April, 2021 "Perfect oasis! Very clean, stocked with everything you need, and then some....especially pool and beach toys. And the pool!! Honestly the best ever!! Kids and grandkids, came over everyday to play in it. House has many whimsical decorations that makes the place feel very beachy yet homey. Back porch very cozy. Thanks for a wonderful stay! We’ll be back." VRBO guest March, 2021 "The Beach N Bay was as advertised and more! This beach bungalow was perfect for our group of four. Nicely laid out and very inviting...and as an added bonus, the pool and patio was amazing! You can't ask for a better location, very walkable to beaches, restaurants and shopping...and with the heavy Anna Maria traffic, walking was the preferred mode of transportation. And did we mention the pool, perfect for lounging, swimming if you must and relaxing! Beach N Bay is a real gem and every bit of paradise found!" VRBO guest January, 2021 "Great place! Clean, nicely stocked kitchen appliances, some good suggestions for local spots and very friendly team! Highly recommend" Airbnb guest December, 2020 "Thank you for opening your home to us. We were very comfortabel and felt like home. Definitely would return" Guest November, 2020 "Thank you so very much for the relaxing and enjoyable vacation. I am totally impressed with the details of this little get away. All the comforts of home. Excellent!" Guest November, 2020 "My family had such a wonderful and relaxing time had at Beach n’ Bay!! The place was lovely, had plenty of room and the owners had thought of everything we’d need (and more) for our beach vacation. It was extremely clean, also, which was a big relief because of Covid. Having the screened in porch was a perfect extra hang out area and a nice place for coffee every morning;) As much as we loved the inside, the outside was our favorite spot! The pool and spa were amazing!! The kids loved the extras details - the ledge with Adirondack chairs, table and umbrella and the area that had a built in table and bench. Relaxing in the spa was so nice while the girls played in the pool! Also, there were beautiful blue lights that lit the pool at night! This, along with lovely landscaping and other accent lighting, made for a very magical atmosphere! The location couldn’t have been more perfect! Only a 2 minute bike ride to the beach and close to all of our favorite restaurants! We definitely want to rent this ideal place again and have recommended it many times already! Duncan Real Estate was also very easy, friendly and helpful:) An overall wonderful experience!" Guest October, 2020
