Anna Maria Island—it’s the ultimate getaway on Florida’s Gulf Coast, complete with dreamy scenery of white sand beaches, turquoise water, and swaying palms. There’s so much to enjoy, from the array of top-notch public beaches to fantastic coastal restaurants. Everyone can find something to love about AMI, as our tiny island offers countless outdoor activities, breathtaking views at every turn, and unique shopping for all tastes. A private vacation home is ideal for your accommodations, but sometimes all you need is a cozy little beach cottage—and that’s what we have for you with our wonderful property Rum Dog!
Your AMI Vacation Done Your Way
This home has just been newly listed on the vacation rental market and offers several updates to make your vacation truly flawless. With 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, this home is ideal for a family vacation, a couple’s weekend away, a friend’s birthday trip—really anything you can think of! Part of a duplex, this home is settled in the north area of Holmes Beach and is only a walk away from the free island shuttle on Gulf Dr. The shuttle will take you up and down the island, allowing you to explore popular areas like the shopping district of Pine Avenue or the Historic Bridge Street Pier.
Discover Island Life in this Colorful Duplex
But most importantly, this property is just steps from the beach, allowing you to live out your beach vacation to its fullest. The back deck area is set against a bright green wall of island foliage, creating a little paradise right in your own backyard. The area is also furnished with a table that can seat a large number of people and offers generous space.
Whip up meals with the BBQ grill in just an instant, whether it’s a BBQ lunch on a break from the beach or a hearty dinner to enjoy with the sunset. The backyard is ideal for catching a snack between trips to the shore, as there’s a backyard outdoor shower for rinsing off the sand. So whether you want to spend hours on the beach, explore the island, or just enjoy the fantastic amenities you have at home, this cozy AMI beach cottage rental allows you to do it all!
Spacious Living Area and Fully Equipped Kitchen
On the front porch, you’ll find a cute sitting area, with two chairs complimented by outdoor pillows. You can expect to find a welcoming atmosphere from the moment you step into Rum Dog, which offers smooth tiled flooring and an open concept space with the kitchen and living room. The living room is dominated by a bold white sectional, which has lots of room for cuddling up and enjoying the large flat-screen TV. A plushy ottoman can double as a footrest or extra seating, and there are lots of soft pillows strewn across the sectional. Great for mornings, afternoons, and evenings, you’ll love relaxing in this inviting room.
The space then transitions to the kitchen area, which has a spacious counter with four bar stools, and a beautiful hanging light fixture that offers both style and utility. If you like to make cocktails, drink wine, or even craft mocktails, you’ll love the hanging glass rack above the sink, making it easy to whip up your own fancy beverages on a whim. Granite counters offer a smooth surface for making snacks, and appliances like the electric stove make it easy to cook up your own meals. Make a family casserole, or cook chocolate chip pancakes for your loved ones in the morning—you can do it all here, and there’s also a brew coffee maker for those that adore their morning cup. Complete with a fridge and dishwasher, this space gives you everything you could want in a vacation rental kitchen!
Dreamy Bedrooms for Your AMI Vacation
There are two bedrooms in this duplex, each offering different accommodations and charming touches. The guest room is furnished with a queen-sized bed, set against an accent wall with colorful wallpaper and stylish décor. An adorable reading nook with fluffy pillows makes for an ideal place to curl up with a book, or to read your favorite articles. In the master room, the bed size gets upgraded to a king, and it has its own ensuite bathroom. The bathroom has a bright custom vanity and a beautifully tiled walk-in shower.
