Make a holiday rental home or villa in Anna Maria Island, Florida your home away from home

The Anna Maria Island area of Florida was kept secret from travellers for many years, but a destination of such quality could not slip under the radar for long! Established on a powder soft sand spit stretching into the Gulf of Mexico, Anna Maria Island is outlined by a wide, white band of beaches, which is the only thing separating the quaint business districts and peaceful holiday rental villas on Anna Maria Island from the warm, clear waters of the Gulf of Mexico.

Things to do on holiday in Anna Maria Island, Florida

An Anna Maria Island rental villa is one of the most idyllic places to escape and relax in luxury, comfort and warmth. The elongated spit, which is Anna Maria Island, Florida, genuinely is a little sample of paradise.

Everyone who takes an Anna Maria Island holiday rental villa will undoubtedly spend a large amount of time on the many miles of incredibly soft sand beaches which line the peninsula. Being in the Gulf of Mexico, you can throw some bait into the sea from the beach and stand a great chance of catching a trophy fish, including redfish, tarpon or black drum. If you prefer your chances from a boat out to sea, there are plenty of opportunities. You will need a fishing license if you intend to fish from a boat, but not from the land.

Anna Maria Island is not so remote that you cannot get a round of golf in during your stay in an Anna Maria Island villa. There are 50 public golf courses in the surrounding area, but there is a delightful 18 hole golf course surrounded by lush tropical vegetation and coastal scenery in Bradenton Beach.

There is always plenty going on in the area, from art festivals to huge markets, and it is advised that you check the local papers to see what is going on during your stay in an Anna Maria Island holiday rental villa. There are also a great number of excellent restaurants, although some are slightly bizarre! Try drinking beer from a coffin at Mr Bones’ in Holmes Beach for example!

Places to holiday in Anna Maria Island, Florida

Anna Maria Island has one of the finest marinas in the USA, as well as extensive shopping, offering goods from exclusive fashion boutiques to limited edition paintings. The entire city is a bird sanctuary, and many species of water birds can be found here, as well as dolphins and manatees just off shore, which manages to somehow add to the blissfully relaxed atmosphere.

Holmes Beach is the business centre of Anna Maria Island. Villas here are some of the most luxurious, and are surrounded by every facility you could need whilst on holiday in Anna Maria Island. Wherever you decide to take an Anna Maria Island holiday rental, be sure to make time for a quick meal at the Beach Café in Holmes Beach.

Bradenton Beach, on the southernmost tip of the island, retains a slightly bohemian atmosphere, and boasts not only a stretch of the now well documented beaches of Anna Maria Island, but also a golf course, a day spa and fishing pier.

Weather in Anna Maria Island, Florida

The fantastic climate of Anna Maria Island is well known. Whatever time of year you take an Anna Maria Island villa, you will be able to enjoy the beaches, golf, water sports, spa facilities and atmosphere as even in winter, temperatures average over 22°C. In summer, averages are above 27°C, with daily peaks reaching into the 30’s (°C).

Travel to Anna Maria Island, Florida

Sarasota-Bradenton International Airport (SRQ) is the closest to a villa in Anna Maria, located just 20 minutes away by road. However, the ‘international’ status of the airport is misleading, as there is only one flight from outside the USA, and that is from Toronto! However, there are short transfers from either Atlanta (ATL) or Miami (MIA).
