Why Kathy McLean chose Anna Maria Island

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😎

Good spot! Stunning view.

  • 4 of 5

The view from the living room is spectacular and worth every penny! Fantastic lighting and plenty of sitting area in the house. The house was very clean and had all the basic kitchen items. The beds were comfortable and there was extra bedding and plenty of beach towels.

We requested beach chairs and trash bags and the owner was very quick to respond and deliver these items. However, when they came to deliver the items they shocked the pool (unrequested) and although they told us that the kids could swim after, we didn't allow it since at home we usually wait at least 24 hours after we shock the pool. That was a bit disappointing.

Also, we had a bit of a hiccup in regards to an additional fee that the owner was charging, which fortunately was removed once we agreed to pay cash/cashier's check. We are very frequent VRBO, Airbnb users and had not seen this owner's fee (additional to the vrbo fee) before.

Overall, great spot in Anna Maria Island and would consider returning.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind remarks! We do believe Bayou Escape has an extraordinary location with both easy beach access as well as the lovely waterway to the Gulf. Regarding the pool treatment, we noticed the water quality was not optimal when we stopped by to provide beach chairs. The pool application's safety precaution specifies the pool is safe for swimming after one hour. In addition, due to the short two day request for reservation before check-in date, typical payment options were not available, requiring cash/cashiers check payment.

Lovely Anna Maria Island home

  • 5 of 5

We (5 adult family members) stayed for 5 days in Feb. and found this house very comfortable and perfect for our visit. The house is quiet, clean, and bright with many windows and a nice view out to the water. The pool is nice for an evening cool down before dinner, and the beach is a short 5 minute walk. Kathy was helpful getting us acquainted with the property and checked in once to see if we needed anything. Very nice stay!
