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. 85° is the highest heat temperature setting. Pool temperatures will probably stay around 76° during the winter months. Please note if cold days 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. 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.

"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 "Thank you to all involved in the process of this rental. It was absolutely amazing. I felt like I was at home the minute I unlocked the door. Everything I needed was at my fingertips. the owners were amazingly accommodating and friendly but completely non-intrusive. I will recommend this house to my family and friends and will most likely revisit at some point down the road. GREAT PLACE TO STAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!" Airbnb Guest October, 2020 "Beach"N Bay is the best! Loves our stay, you guys did everything you could to make sure our stay was amazing. We will be back for sure. See you next time!" Guest September, 2020 "This place was absolutely perfect! We had everything necessary for our stay. The pool and spa was so refreshing and beautiful! We had a simple issue with the toilet not flushing properly and Duncan was on it immediately. Even sent someone over after to clean the bathroom again. I would highly recommend this property and Duncan to anyone." Airbnb Guest September, 2020 "I have one word for our first vacation together in 17 years....... AMAZING!!! Thank you to the owners for allowing us to enjoy your little piece of heaven!" Guest September, 2020 "We loved staying here! My personal favorites were the screened-in porch and the pool.
