Our original AMI home is much easier to navigate than new-build 3-story homes on Anna Maria Island because our first floor is on the ground level and the second floor is one easy set of stairs. Other rebuilt homes on the island usually require climbing multiple flights of stairs up or taking small elevators.

Florida's best-kept secret, Anna Maria Island (AMI), features beautiful white sugar sand beaches, older Florida charm, award-winning restaurants, and shopping all within easy walking distance or a ride aboard the free "Anna Maria Island Trolley". One of the few places in the world where the sunset is regularly applauded, this tiny slice of paradise stretches for 7 miles into the Gulf. Just across the Cortez bridge on the south side of the island, is the old school Florida fishing village of Cortez, where restaurants have excellent seafood and some have live music.

5/5 Excellent

Fabulous stay!
This property is the bomb! Our group of 6 adults found the unit clean, and nicely decorated. The rooms and bathrooms were spacious and the kitchen had everything we need to cook meals. The view from the balcony is amazing, the dock made for a great fishing spot and the pool was great! Loved everything about this unit; location was amazing- we parked our cars and didn’t get in them again until we left! Great spots to eat and shop within walking distance abd the beach was right across the street. Already planning for another trip at this same spot next year!

5/5 Excellent

Girls trip
My sister and I came with both our adult daughters for a little R&R. The weather turned out to be horrible but we still made the rest of it. This property was very clean and has some great views. The paddle boards and kayaks were a bonus. The only awkward thing was the sharing of the pool which is very closer to the windows of whoever is staying on the first floor. The windows were blocked to where you couldn’t see in, which is good. Only has one TV. Would have been nice to have one in the master bedroom but then again it is a vacation and time should be spent out and about. Looking to possibly renting both the upper and lower level with more of the family. All in all this is a great property and will likely come back.

5/5 Excellent

Great stay!
This property was great! It was walking distance from so much and we enjoyed the beaches, kayaks and the view. We will be back again :)

5/5 Excellent

Fabulous location!
Dock on the Bay was perfect for our first family vacation since COVID arrived. The home itself is clean and updated and it’s within walking distance to restaurants, shops, and a beautiful beach (just a block away). Kids enjoyed fishing from the dock as well as using the provided kayaks, paddle boards, and pool. Although they could be updated, it was great to have beach chairs, wagons, and sand toys there at the house to use! Rex was quick to respond, Dana the cleaning lady was so sweet as we met her on arrival and checkout, and we even really enjoyed visiting with the family renting the lower level. It was a perfect stay!

5/5 Excellent

Great stay!
Great place to rent. Its beautifully updated, and excellent location. Parking was a little tight (2 spots available), but I was able to park a dodge 1500 with crew cab with no problems. Owner was very responsive to messages. Will definitely recommend and return myself as well.
