Florida’s Anna Maria Island is a beautiful tropical island with endless spans of white, sandy beaches. Tourists are attracted to Anna Maria Island because of its laid-back pace of life and because of its excellent golfing and fishing. If you’re in need of a beach getaway, here is a good selection of HomeAway and Vrbo vacation rentals to help you get started:
This is a studio apartment that’s perfect for any couple looking for a romantic beach getaway. It’s located on Sarasota Bay, which is slightly off Anna Maria Island, but if you wish to make your way over, it’s only a quick trip away! Feel free to take a dip in the shared pool if you don’t wish to get sand where sand shouldn’t be while swimming at the beach. The home is decked out with nautical-themed decor, truly submerging you in the beach vibe. There’s also an adorable and cosy window seat where you can curl up and read a book while taking in your necessary vitamin D. The bedroom is decorated very simply, but it’s extremely bright and welcoming. There’s a large and comfortable bed that’s just perfect to rest on. There’s also access to a tiny deck but with a marvellous view. There are also chairs on the nearby deck that you can make use of. Watch the ebb and flow of the sea and be at peace. Sometimes, you can ever see dolphins swimming so look out for them!

Resorts can be so expensive, so how about renting a home that has pretty much the same things? It looks, feels, and has many amenities that a spa resort has. Even better, it’s only a short trip to the beaches of the Gulf of Mexico! The bedrooms are spacious, vibrant, and well-decorated. The bed is comfortably plush and is topped with plenty of soft pillows so you can definitely sleep peacefully. There’s even a sitting area with a TV, so you can watch some TV before heading to bed. The living room is brightly lit, very colourful, and filled with loads of fun things to do. From the Playstation to the old-fashioned board games, everyone will have something to do. An extremely good perk of renting this home is the sauna! It truly is a great modern luxury! It’s perfect for anyone who wants a blissful spa experience and to just sweat it out and relax. The hosts have put a lot of thought into decorating the outdoor space, and it truly looks and feels like a luxury spa resort. The swimming pool is large and surrounded by palm trees and lounge chairs. There’s even a Tiki hut to truly immerse you in the spa vibe.
