About the property

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'.

About Kathy McLean

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😎

Beautiful place, excellent location

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed for several years in Anna Maria and this is far and away the best house we have ever rented. From the well-stocked kitchen to the high-quality linens, the interior had everything we could wish for -- it was very comfortable, clean and quiet. There were plenty of gathering and work spaces. The back yard felt private and offered great views, stunning landscaping and lots of comfortable seating. It was a very short stroll to the beach or into the restaurant/shopping strip. Looking forward to staying here again!

We had a wonderful 4 day minivacation here.

  • 5 of 5

This a very practical as well as charmig house on the bayou with a 4 minute Walk to the wonderful white beaches. We stayed with our 10 and 15 year old children and absolutely loved it. The back yard with pool and Canal view was beautiful and relaxing. The area parklike with houses with pretty gardens. The house is clean and nicely decorated and contains all you need. We loved to walk on the beach, bike around the neighborhood, kayak on the bayou walk to dinner etc.

highly recommend and we will be back.

Comments meant to be helpful, not negative!! We had a great time!

The kitchen is quite well-provisioned for meals at home. Some small knives would be helpful. The beds are comfortable; we would have appreciated blankets being provided rather than quilts, but that is a personal preference. A few more hand towels and wash cloths would be handy in the bathrooms, and the hair blowers were so hot we nearly burned our scalps.

Family room area, which has the greatest light and view, really needs a firmer seating sofa.

The outdoor patio and pool area is lovely and private.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind remarks and helpful suggestions. We pride ourselves on a quick response to any guest requests and only wish you had asked for assistance in meeting your needs, such as a request for additional kitchen knives. The master closet is stocked with additional bath linens and each bedroom is equipped with blankets (total of 9). Bedding quilts are ideal for Florida beach cottages because they are easily washed between guests. We are confused to hear about the blow dryers which have three power settings as well as cool vs hot options. We enjoyed meeting you and are glad you enjoyed your stay. Sincerely, The McLeans

Magical spot in idyllic Anna Maria

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed 2 weeks here with many birds, jumping fish and gorgeous sunrises over the canal. The house worked well for three couples, and Kathy was immediately responsive when we had a WiFi problem. Lots of beaches, good restaurants and easy access by free trolley to the whole island. Lovely vacation destination!

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We could not have been happier with our stay!! Plenty of room and every bedroom has their own bathroom!! So close to everything!! We rented a golf cart which my husband ran us all around on but you could actually walk to the beach, Sandbar restaurant, Pine Ave shops, Rod & Reel pier, City pier, and many other places. You will not be disappointed in the house or its accommodations. Thanks so much for providing such a great house!
