Experience island living the way it was always meant to be: cozy, friendly, and relaxed. Anna Maria Island, Florida is known for its charming cottages, friendly neighbors, and pristine beaches with no modern high-rise buildings in sight.

Bayou Escape's stunning location on the waterfront provides a panoramic view down the bayou. Relax in the heated pool and glimpse native manatee, fish, birds, and tropical vegetation. With your own private dock, enjoy watercraft and fishing at its best. Bask on secluded beaches with sunset views within a block of your front door.

This newly renovated cottage provides 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms plus cozy living areas with tropical Florida decor. The landscaping provides views of lush tropical flora out of every window, and the shady nooks plus brightly colored leaves and petals will always remind you that you selected the perfect island 'Escape'.

Why Kathy McLean chose Anna Maria

Anna Maria Island beaches are rated among the world's most beautiful. One of the finest features of the island is its low density population and miles of unspoiled beaches. This guest home is located on the preferred north end of Anna Maria where beaches are secluded from public traffic and restaurants and vintage shops are within walking distance.

What makes this cottage unique

During your stay, you'll find it hard to ever leave the island! Whether you're making it a pool day, shopping in the local village, boating on the bayou, or spending the day at the beach, this tropical location is one you will never forget!

5th stay so must love it!

  • 5 of 5

This was our 5th time in Bayou Escape. Once again it was fantastic. Kathy was very responsive to a couple of requests we made, as ever. We were a group of 6 adults and the villa was perfect for us. Great location, fantastic views. See you again soon I hope😎

Gorgeous sums it up

  • 5 of 5

The property was beautifully landscaped which really added to the appeal of an island vacation. We didn't have any cell service(which was nice), the house does have a land line and we had excellent wifi.

The kids absolutely loved being in the pool and watching the fish in the bayou.

The house itself was very spacious and clean. The beds and couches were very comfortable!!

The property is within walking distance to the beach and downtown area. The beach is gorgeous!!! White powdery sand and clear water...bring goggles as there are so many fish to see.

Would definitely recommend this property!!!

A beautiful “Old Florida” home with wonderful views.

  • 5 of 5

The home was clean, much more spacious than it looks from the pictures, and on a quiet street two minutes from the beach. The beds were comfortable, the kitchen well stocked, and the views from the sunroom were terrific. The pool, while small, was deep and very refreshing after all the sea salt. Day one: manatees in the canal, day two, another manatee and dolphins surrounded us while paddle boarding at the beach. The beach is half as crowded as the beaches further south, power white sand, and has plenty of shells. Great restaurants close by, especially The Sand Bar and you must try the Donut Experiment.
