Our place is close to white sand beaches, the bay and city dock, parks, tennis courts, casual and fine dining, shopping, live theater, and more. You’ll love my place because of its mid-mod ranch charm that has been meticulously decorated. Located in a quiet neighborhood it provides fine amenities, including en-suite bathrooms in both bedrooms, you are looking for during your vacation. Portable crib, gas grill, sleeper sofa and pet-friendly as just some of the added touches we have thought of.

The space

The Beach Cruiser is a two bedroom mid-mod ranch home with almost 1,200 sq. ft. of living space in heart of Anna Maria Island. Both bedrooms include an en-suite bathroom, a queen bed and ample closet or dresser space. The house sleeps six comfortably with a portable crib (pack ‘n play) and additional blankets provided. Linen service provides beach, kitchen and bath towels along with crisp clean bed linens.

We have thought of everything to make you feel right at home. The kitchen is fully stocked and includes a coffee maker, toaster, and blender in addition to standard items like stove, oven, microwave and frig. Cable TV, DVD player, and Chromecast provide ample entertainment options in the living room and 32″ TVs are located in both bedrooms. The Florida room (sunroom) provides additional gathering space with books, puzzles and games for all ages. Wifi is accessible throughout the property.

Off-street parking includes a paved driveway that can easily fit two cars, one of which can be under the carport. The backyard offers space to nap in the sun, enjoy a pleasant dinner (seating for six) and has easy access to the 2+ acre green space adjacent to the backyard. A gas grill is available for use as well. We provide guests with a beach cart to assist in carrying all your items down to the sand for hours of relaxation or active fun.

Guest access

You will have access to the entire house accept for the owner's closet and a small shed. The front door is equipped with keyless entry. Now you don't have to worry about loosing the keys at the beach or in the water.

Interaction with guests

We provide local on-island support 24/7.

Other things to note


There is plenty on AMI to keep you active and busy. Start your day with a couple sets of tennis at the city courts located less than 500 feet from the Beach Cruiser. Then, poke your head into a few of the many shops on Pine Street, including designing your own donut at The Donut Experiment. The island’s clear blue waters off the coast are a great place to spot dolphins as you paddle board, kayak or swim. To wrap up, walk the beach at sunset and then enjoy live music at a local venue.

Once you roll out of bed take the trolly down to the Anna Maria City Pier where you have an amazing 180 degree view of the bay. Spend your afternoon at the beach reading, collecting sea shells, people watch and then take an easy stroll along the beach. Stay at the beach through the afternoon and enjoy an amazing sunset over the Gulf Coast. Finish your day with dinner at The Waterfront, but make sure to leave room for ice cream next door at Two Scoops.

We had a lovely fall break at AMI and it was all the better because of the accuracy of the detail of the home and hospitality of the host. Everything was as it should be and we would definitely recommend and return again.

We had a wonderful time at Audie's cottage. Everything is clean, beautifully decorated and the beach in walkable distance. We found it better than on the pictures! Would come back with our family!

The cottage was exactly as shown on the pictures. Very cozy and tastefully decorated. It was the perfect size and everything was clean and in very good shape. Great location in a residential area but close to the beach and to restaurants and small shops. Audie was a great host. He was extremely responsive and always a step ahead with providing information and helpful recommendations. We would love to come back.
