We’ve reached the final main style of accommodation available for visitors to Anna Maria Island. And in a lot of ways, this is the segment of available lodging which is the most difficult to nail down a true definition for.
What makes looking for a villa or bungalow any different from looking in to the vacation rentals market? There is some definite overlap between the two. A number of available rental units around the island would certainly fit the definition of a bungalow-style house. I guess the main difference is that you won’t find any of the larger mega-houses that one can rent. You also find something a bit more substantial than a mere apartment style unit…well, mostly.
The safest way to describe an Anna Maria villa or bungalow is that it fills the happy middle ground between the vacation rental market and a more typical hotel or motel room. This is something perfect for those looking for a bit of a private getaway, as they end to be located towards the outskirts of the island and closer to the beachfront. You get all the sorts of features that you might miss from home when on vacation, like a full kitchen and often easy access to laundry facilities and BBQ grills. Like with a vacation rental, you aren’t going to need to put out a Do Not Disturb sign to let the maid know that you aren’t ready to get up just yet, at least not more frequently than once a week or so.
A villa or bungalow stay is a popular one for young couples visiting our sandy shores in order to get married and/or celebrate their new union on their honeymoon. They’re perfect for a couple looking to get away from things, or for any small group of travelers who want to get away from a city atmosphere while still being close enough to get the benefits from a more urban environment.
There are several options on the island for anyone who is enticed by what a rented beachfront villa might have to offer. Alamanda Villa sits on the edge of Holmes Beach with a renovated complex of eight different units, each complete with in-suite laundry services and kitchen. The beach stretches as far as you can see in either direction, with the bright clear waters if the Gulf lying just beyond. Multilevel decks and a fully enclosed BBQ pit facility help fill in the gaps to making Alamanda a spectacular place to stay.
Palm Tree Villas offer a selection of available units ranging from simpler studio-style rooms to condo structures with multiple bedrooms and bathrooms available. As with most other accommodations of this style, all of the amenities are available to those staying. Full kitchens with granite counters, dishwashers, private patios and grill areas are just the start of a long list of available luxuries to make any short of long term stay a pleasure.
And let us not forget that the beachfront cottage is also an option for renters, with Anna Maria Beach Cottages offering a selection of full building rentals as well as those split in to several smaller suites. And best of all, you’re a stone’s throw from the beauty of the warm beach.
Rates for villas and bungalows typically linger in the same number range as would be found for similarly sized vacation rentals, with prices ranging depending on the specific size and season. If you’re looking to visit our eclectic little island, this might just be the perfect way to stay and enjoy all that we have to offer. It’s a particularly fine option for anyone looking to make a longer visit, with good rates for long term rentals.
