What’s the difference between a beachfront and waterfront rental?

An Anna Maria Island beach front rental means that the vacation rental is directly on the beach and it is an immediate walk to the beach. Very often beachfront condos are on large parcels of land and while the vacation rental is beach front the views of the beach from inside your vacation rental may be obstructed. An Anna Maria Island waterfront vacation rental means the land directly abuts a water way on the island. The waterway is typically a canal that may or may not have boat access. Normally Anna Maria Island waterfront implies boating or fishing waters while beachfront is defined as direct access to the beaches of Anna Maria Island.

What sea life can I expect to see while at the beach?

Dolphins, a variety of birds, sometimes a fish or two can be seen while visiting the beach. It is relatively rare to witness a sea turtle and if you do have the opportunity to witness a sea turtle laying her eggs stay away and try to stay out of sight of the sea turtle.

Where are the best Anna Maria Island beachfront vacation rentals located?

The entire beach of Anna Maria Island is fantastic. However there are a variety of beaches on Anna Maria island. If you prefer to be able to walk to shops and restaurants from the beach then a vacation rental in Bradenton Beach is a good bet. If you are looking to pick up some beach volleyball or want to pick up a burger or two from the beach then the public beach located in Holmes Beach at the end of State Route 64 or Manatee avenue is a great bet. Another great spot is staying in a vacation rental near Pine Avenue where there are lots of local shops along the street. Finally anywhere else on Anna Maria Island will provide great beaches. The rest of the island is relatively secluded from shopping or restaurants and if you want to find some very quiet areas then just review Google maps and be sure to stay away from our larger condominiums on Anna Maria Island.

How far are beachfront rentals to the beach?

Most beachfront vacation rentals are within a few orange throws to the beach. Anna Maria Island offers a map to see distance to the beach and while beachfront can mean the condominium is directly on the beach the vacation rental may be several units back from the beach impeding interior beach views. Be sure to request information on the distance to the beach for any of our Anna Maria Island Vacation rentals. Our team of experts normally can cite the number of steps or worst case number of blocks to the beach.
