The Sand Dollar is a nicely, updated renovated beach cottage that was perfect for this family of 3 from New England. The kitchen was stocked with the basic cooking necessities for those "eat in" nights. With quick access to the beach, and a short walk to the shops and restaurants on Pine Ave., it was quite convenient . Working with Gulf Island Vaction Rentals once again, was easy and accommodating. We hope to be back for our third year to AMI in 2019!

Fantastic Home & Location

  • 5 of 5

Perfect location with the beach only about 2 min walk away with no street to cross. Home is updated and very clean with all of the kitchen appliances you could need. Washer and dryer work great with plenty of extra linens provided. Lots of beach chairs, beach cart and other fun things to use. Walking distance to many cute shops and restaurants. Wonderful stay!!!

Owner's Response: Jim, Thank you for taking the time to review Sand Dancer, I’m glad you enjoy staying here during your winter break and it’s great that you’re returning next year! We love how our home is just a 5-minute walk to several restaurants including Slim’s Place, Ginny’s and Janes and The Sandbar. We also love being so close to the beach and having no streets to cross. We look forward to having you back next year!

Excellent location and nice remodel

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four stayed here for more than two weeks, during the holiday and loved it. The home is newly remodeled and has a great lay out. Kitchen and open dining and living area is very comfortable and homey. The best part is LOCATION! we love the beach side of Gulf, and being able to walk about 6 houses to the beach. we could go to and from the beach multiple times per day and not have to lug a lot of stuff. Washer/dryer is outside, in car port, which is fine, but just know that you are going outside. The home is at corner of Gulf road, which we thought would be noisy, but it is very quiet in the master bedroom - -lots of insulation from the road. We love Anna Maria and we will be back! We'd stay here again in a heart beat!

Owner's Response: Mary, Thank you for taking the time to review Sand Dancer, I’m happy your family enjoyed staying there for the Holidays. We also love our home’s proximity to the beach and several great dining choices including Slim’s Place (their bacon wrapped meatloaf is a must). Our newly remodeled home has an open concept perfect for preparing meals and rehashing the day’s events with the family. Our home is well insulated from outside noise plus that part of the Island becomes quiet very early. I’m sure that Ellie, Suzanne and Bob would love to hear back from you when planning your trip back to the Island!

White Sand Beaches of Anna Maria (Steps Away)
Car: not necessary

Anna Maria Island is located on the Central West Coast of Florida nestled between the tropical blue waters of the Gulf of Mexico to the West and Tampa Bay to the North. Once a best –kept secret among local Floridians, it is now known as a vacation favorite among local, national and international travelers. From honeymooners to Hollywood film crews, youngsters to the young-at-heart, people from around the world have discovered what’s awaiting you – Your Piece of Paradise, 'An Island In The Sun'…

The island consists of 3 small cities, Bradenton Beach being the southernmost, Holmes Beach in the middle and Anna Maria City on the Northern tip. Each community has its own distinct character but all have that relaxed old Florida Charm with unique and charming shops and restaurants.

Anna Maria Island has miles of sugar white sand beaches, sand dunes, sea oats and Australian Pines lying between the Gulf of Mexico and the Intercoastal Waterway. This destination is a natural choice for tropical vacationers looking for golf, tennis, water sports, shopping, plus many cultural and historical attractions. Located close to all the major attractions, yet far from the maddening crowds make the Gulf Island Beaches the ideal vacation spot.

Enjoy a sunrise overlooking Tampa Bay and a picture-perfect Florida sunset all in a day…

You need never leave the island to find fun and relaxation. Our island is only 7 miles long and no more than a few blocks wide which leaves you with sounds of waves and visions of the sunset in every location. Enjoy a day at the beach and watch the kids play in the sand. Walk along pristine beaches and dine in award-winning restaurants, Enjoy fresh grouper sandwiches on a pier and sipping martinis while enjoying live music. Go shopping in our specialty shops and boutiques all along the island. We even have a Free Trolley to take you where you want to go. The friendly environment and endless activities will keep you coming back for more. Hop aboard and experience island paradise!

Sand Dancer is Walking Distance to Shops, Restaurants, a small Grocery Store, and steps to the Gulf of Mexico Beautiful White Sand Beaches!
