Welcome to Beach, Please A ~ This two bedroom, two bathroom ground level unit is only STEPS to the beach!
This very special island retreat has been recently updated and thoughtfully furnished to maximize your comfort. Beach Please A is located on the ground floor of a 2-unit duplex. The beautifully maintained island property is located less than 100 steps from the amazing white sand beaches and turquoise waters of Anna Maria Island. Your unit has a large, screened lanai in the front of the house with a table and chairs. It's the perfect spot for your morning coffee or tea. Set amongst the lush landscaping you will also find a patio and hammock for relaxing right outside the lanai.

In the garage you have access to the laundry area as well as beach carts, umbrellas, and chairs. There are usually lots of beach and pool toys that guests have left behind for your enjoyment as well. The white sand beaches of the Gulf of Mexico are just a few steps away so grab the beach cart, chairs, umbrellas, beach towels, and pop-up shade canopy and start your vacation!

After a day on the beach you can return to the tranquil setting of your tropically landscaped backyard and sip a cool cocktail. Take a nap on a comfortable lounger or go for a dip in the shared, heated pool. There is also the convenience of an outdoor shower for rinsing away the sand.

Cook to your heart's content in the fully appointed kitchen or visit one of the many great restaurants on the island that are within a short walk or drive. Or if you're in the mood for BBQ, there is a grill on the back patio by the pool as well as a dining table and chairs. You can also catch the free island trolley, which stops right across the street, to explore the local shopping on Pine avenue or Bridge street.

Later in the evening be sure not to miss the spectacular sunsets. You can watch from the comfort of your front patio or join the sunset pilgrimage to the beach. Tuck the kids into the tropical twin bedroom and retreat to the spacious master king bedroom when night falls. The master bedroom has cable TV and an en suite bath. There is also a huge guest bathroom with private vanity area.

Need more space for a large group of family and friends? If available, the upstairs space can be rented as well for the ultimate private villa. See Houfy listing #7702 for details!

PLEASE NOTE: We prefer to rent from SATURDAY to SATURDAY during the high season (January-April and July). We will sometimes make an exception to this rule but please contact us first before proceeding to book. Thank you!

My husband Cory and I have been visiting Anna Maria Island ever since we first discovered it in 2009. We knew instantly that we had found Heaven on Earth and hatched a plan to retire here someday. We recently took the first step and purchased this house in Holmes Beach. While we're not quite ready to retire yet, we'd love to share our getaway with you. We hope you love Anna Maria Island as much as we do and we're happy to share any insights and tips with you. Don't hesitate to reach out to us if you have any inquiries about this 7 miles of paradise!
