This newly renovated 2 bedroom / 2 bath duplex is perfect for two couples or a small family. The master bedroom with en suite bath includes a king-sized bed with top quality linens and dedicated flat-screen television. Bathroom includes a granite vanity, Egyptian cotton towels and marble shower.

The second bedroom is delightfully decorated with original art, has two twin beds for guests or children and also features a dedicated flat-screen television. This room also has sliding doors to the outdoor patio, where you can sit and enjoy your morning coffee or watch a spectacular sunrise.

Sliding doors open to the patio where you can relax, catch some rays, or just read a book and enjoy the sound of the island breeze through the palm trees.

The location of this property could not be more ideal. Just a short walk or bike ride to Downtown Anna Maria complete with shopping, dining and local nightlife. The trolly stop across the street is very convenient and can get you to any spot on the island. Who needs a car???

During the summer season, enjoy watching the loggerhead sea-turtles lay their eggs on these beaches, or check out the dolphins and manatees swimming offshore. Rent a boat at the marina or simply fish from one of our bridges and catch dinner as these waters teem with snook, snapper, tarpon and grouper!

The city of Anna Maria has no fast food chains, no traffic lights, and no high-rises. This charming beach town takes you back to a tranquil time when living was easy. Come see how relaxing beach life can be at Capt. Kidd's Hideout!

Great Winter Get Away

  • 4 of 5

Coming from the NY Metro area, we found the accommodations more than adequate for a short winter get away. Kidd's Hide-away is clean, close to beach access and convenient to many cities, public transportation and shopping. It is reminiscent of basic Florida living, with quaint, local restaurants and friendly residents.

We will definitely consider this location again!

Great Rental in Anna Maria

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I really enjoyed our trip to Anna Maria in January. Since the weather was unseasonably cold the few days we were there, we were forced to stay in the house more than we would have liked. However, the place had everything we needed. All the kitchen equipment, a nice size TV and comfortable furniture. Judson was easy to work with and never bothered us during our stay. We would definitely stay here again! if you are looking for a relaxing place to stay in Anna Maria, this is a great choice. It is easy to get to and very close to the restaurants and bars.

Great location, short walk to the beach!

  • 5 of 5

Thank-you for sharing your beautiful home with my son and I for the week! It worked out great, we were able to cook a few meals instead of going out every night, and the kitchen was well equipped. Hope to be back again!

Convenient spot with everything we needed

  • 5 of 5

Nice property with everything needed for our weekend on Anna Maria. The space was comfortable with clean bedrooms and bathrooms and a full kitchen. Very nice spot. No complaints although check-out at 10am came quick for us.

Thanksgiving at the beach

  • 3 of 5

House was ok. Served us well as we were staying there and spending most of the time with family in the area. Couch was very uncomfortable. Ceiling fans would have made air circulation better. Hard to find address in the dark. It was clean and stocked well. Could not find beach chairs etc but did not matter as it was too cold and this stupid town does not allow pets on the beach. Would consider this property again if we needed to stay in the area.

Great visit to Anna Maria Island

  • 5 of 5

The parking area was easy to get in and out. We liked that it was close to walk to a lot of places or to ride the bikes. Our side of the duplex (side-A) is on the front facing Gulf Drive so it was nice to sit out there, watch the people walk/ride past, wave to them...very friendly. Walking to the beach was so convenient and pleasant. The beach itself is always so nice to walk!! There was plenty of room for us - there was only 2 of us, but there are 2 bedrooms. The master suite was really good. The shower is large and the whole bathroom is plenty big. The master suite is on the far side away from the road so we didn't hear any noise. There was a fan on a floor stand that we used because we are use to having a fan running at night time. It did get "cold" so the heater had to kick in and that did make a little noise, but it wasn't bad. Since we ate out for every meal we didn't use the kitchen except for the coffee maker in the morning and that was real easy to use. I had a few questions before the visit and the reality company was quick to answer. I didn't use a smart phone so everything was to the home computer. All the links in the email worked through that computer and I just printed out what I needed. The place was real clean when we arrived and easy to do the final check out. There was a notebook on the living room coffee table that gave lots of information - places to eat, visit, things to do before leaving etc. Out favorite place to eat was Ginny & Jane E's just and then the Sand Dollar - both are just north of the duplex. We would definitely stay here again!!
