About the property

Two Bed / Two Bath Duplex Just One Block From Best Beaches On Anna Maria!

"Old Florida" elevated beach cottage just one block from the best beaches on Anna Maria Island! Located on the West side of Gulf Drive, Capt. Kidd's Hideout has no streets to cross to get to beach and is so close you can smell the salt air and hear the ocean waves.

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.

The main living areas of this bright beach cottage are comfortable and airy with an open floor plan.

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.

Capt. Kidd's Hideout also includes a dedicated laundry room so you can pack light keep everyone looking their best. Also in this area will you find a beach cart, chairs and other assorted beach toys to make your transition to island life that much easier!

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!

Perfect location for our vacation on Anna Maria!

  • 5 of 5

This property is perfectly situated, allowing easy access to the island businesses as well as the beach by car, bike or foot. Apartment B is located upstairs and at the back of the property, making it a quiet restful retreat, and the open deck allowed us to catch a few rays of sun out of the cooler January breeze. The beachy decor is tastefully done and quite functional for daily needs. We would recommend this booking, as the full kitchen, open living/dining area, 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom floor plan offers an at home feel while surrounded by paradise. There is ample covered parking plus a laundry area, which we never even checked out... maybe next time 😎?

Short stay

  • 3 of 5

The owners have decorated the unit nicely and the location is very walkable to the beach. However, there was a very strong dank smell when you walked in. I thought maybe the air or unit just hadn't been on in a while due to no visitors, but even after 3 days of it running, the smell still hit you in the face the minute you walked in. The arrival cleaning left all sorts of black hairs in the master shower wall. I was first to shower in there and I'm a blond. The price was low, so I guess a few issues would be expected, but cleanliness and no smell should be standard.

THE place to stay in Holmes Beach!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Capt'n Kidd's! The four of us were quite comfortable and the close access to the beach, without having to cross a major road, was a huge plus! It has everything you need for a fun and comfortable stay, and is only a short walk to Pine Ave, restaurants and shopping. We highly recommend this getaway and are already looking at dates for our next stay!
