Every reservation now includes a credit towards personalized beach gear rental included with your stay (chairs, cart, umbrella, bikes, coolers, games, and so much more). Simply make selections prior to your stay and we will have at your home for you!

  • All linens (sheets, towels, blankets) are included at the beginning of your stay. If you are interested in additional cleaning or linen services please contact me prior to your stay. Daily housekeeping is not included.

  • All homes are equipped with cable television and wireless internet (Wi-Fi). Wi-Fi password is in rental binder located inside the home.

  • Kitchens are fully stocked with dishes, bowels, silverware, and glassware. They also are readily stocked with all the essentials to cook a meal at home according with the occupancy of the home including cooking utensils, pots and pans, cookie sheets, bakeware, small appliances (microwave, coffeemaker, toaster, blender, & slow cooker), and a few serving dishes and bowls. While we do keep most items in stock to replace and provide if needed, we do not guarantee the amount of items and may not be able to provide extra additional items for entertainment or preparing a large meal.

  • All single-family homes have a gas grill for use. Propane is provided as a courtesy to guest with additional extra tank. If you find yourself out of propane please let us know and we will fill during business hours, otherwise you may refill tank at local hardware stores (Ace, TrueValue), Publix, or Anna Maria General Store and email us a photo of receipt and we will reimburse you for cost. Please do not leave lit grills unattended, clean and cover after each use.

  • There is a Publix grocery store, CVS, and Walgreens and several small markets on the island.

  • We provide a "Starter Set' of amenities including 2 garbage bags, 2 toilet paper rolls per toilet, 1 paper towel roll, dishwasher tabs, hand soaps, coffee filters, salt & pepper and small dish soap. No other food, oil, sugar, spices, paper products, plastic cups, foil, bags etc are kept in our homes.  While we would love to... we are unable to keep items in the bulk in the homes due to food safety as well as unfortunately too often all the items stocked go completely missing.

  • We do not routinely keep any baby items in our homes (pack n plays, highchairs, etc.) due to safety and sanitation reasons. We recommend you order these items for your use during your stay.

    • There is a free trolley that runs the length of the island with multiple stops nearby. Bicycles and golf carts are also a great way to get around the island. We do recommend making arrangements prior to your visit for any weekly rentals, especially during peak seasons.
