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!

  • 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😎

Relaxation & beauty

  • 5 of 5

I almost hate to write this review, as I don't want anyone else to know about our secret! I LOVED staying here! My boyfriend and I were looking for a romantic beachy get away and this was the perfect place. The house is clean, elegant beachy, and has all your needs. It's like you are staying at your own home. I felt so comfortable. The pool was nice and waking up to the quiet bayou was an amazing way to start the morning! There is a grill, so we grilled out several nights for a nice romantic dinner inside. Additionally, the best part was the beach was literally a 3-4 minute walk away, if that. Since you are on the north end of the island, the beaches are not crowded at all, which is huge factor for me. There is also a trolley stop about the same distance as the beach entrance. Kathy was very nice and everything was very organized as far as instructions for check-in/check-out and use of appliances. There is a washer/dryer, and everything you need in the kitchen to cook. My boyfriend and I want to make this place a routine destination getaway. If you are looking for peace, quiet, relaxation, and beauty, then this is definitely the place for you. If you are a party person, which I am not, I Would not recommend it as this is a quiet neighborhood. 10 pm is the noise curfew.

Tips:

-Go to the grocery store if you plan on cooking, as there is no food in the kitchen. Publix is about a 8 min. drive.

-If you have a lot of people and need to do a lot of laundry/dishes, buy detergent for dishwasher and washer.

-Check out the beach package and while you're out shopping for groceries, if you want anything extra is your package, you can stop at the shopping center south and and next door to Public for any other water toys/water apparel you might want. There is also one on the way to Publix around the corner next to Hurricane Harbor (I believe that is what it is called.)

I cannot wait to get back here. I told my boyfriend that I want to go back for Christmas or definitely in the spring! Kathy is extremely helpful and available if you have any issues that come up, which we didn't but said to text her anytime we needed her. She also reminded us of our check out time before we left which was nice! WE will definitely be back!

Beautiful property in paradise! Wonderful owners!

  • 5 of 5

We had an incredible time at Bayou Escape. The home is open and airy, and very clean. The furniture was quite comfortable, everything in good shape and working well, and lots of room in the house! It was nice to know that the owners live very close by in case of emergency.

You won't want to spend much time in the house, though - the pool overlooking the bayou is magical. We had great fun watching the birds and manatee watching!

The beach is less than 5 minutes away, and lots of restaurants are within walking distance. The area is quiet and serene.

We can't wait to come back. Thank you again, Kathy!

Exceedingly Beautiful & Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

The Bayou Escape was the perfect getaway. A lovely home with plenty of room and a beautiful view. Only a stone's throw away was a nice quiet section of AMI's pristine beach. Shops, restaurants, bars—there was plenty to do nearby but everything is just far enough that you still get your own little slice of secluded paradise.

Kathy was great—extremely nice and helpful. We definitely plan on returning!

Complete Zen......

  • 5 of 5

Loved this house. It was so perfect for our family of 6. We spent most of our days around the pool and on the deck. The kids kayaked and had paddle boards for the week from Beach Bums so they had a blast. It was hard to launch from the deck with low tide most especially. The only improvement i can think of if Ms. Kathy put in a kayak launch that'd be icing on the cake! We so enjoyed the comfy beds at this home everyone slept like babies. I loved how the house was big enough for our group but not so big we never saw the kids. They all wanted to hang out outside. We only took the short walk for beach days twice that's how much we enjoyed the backyard here. The heated pool was just perfect. Everything was spotless i can say enough how much we enjoyed our stay.
