The Anna Maria Island Beach Shack is within walking distance to the beach but tucked away from the hustle and bustle of beach traffic and other vacationers. The home sits between the Gulf beaches and Anna Maria Sound, but is truly in the middle of everything Anna Maria Island has to offer. Free Trolley rides (every 20 minutes) allow easy travel through out the island to restaurants/bars and historic sights.

Wonderful Accommodation >
We can fully recommend the Ami Beach Shack. At the beginning upon arrival we got all information needed via Text message. Very helpful! The property is amazing. Well equipped, clean and near the beach and the bay. Thank you for good service!
We loved this property. It was clean and well cared for. Convenience to beach and trolley we great.
Perfect little place>
Our stay at the AMI Beach Shack was wonderful. The house was perfect for 3 adults and I believe 4 would have been ok too. Communication with host was very easy. The house was very clean. I’m not sure the dishwasher always works too well as after we ran it some dishes were still dirty. The kitchen is well supplied for all your cooking needs. The beds were comfy! We did find it odd that there was no dresser for unpacking in the queen bedroom and the half the dresser in the king bedroom was inaccessible due to the closet doors. Perhaps changing out those doors with an accordion type or a curtain would be better! The beach equipment that we were able to use was great, we flew down so we would have had to rent stuff. If you have kids there are plenty of beach toys for them to use! The area out back was perfect for evening cocktails! Overall a great little house that we would definitely rent again!!
Live like a local, 2 blocks from the beach>
The entire experience, from booking, to checking-in, to checking-out has been smooth sailing. The property itself is perfectly sized for a family, with two sizable beds; the couch bed is comfortable enough that my children often preferred sleeping there. The laundry room has a generous assortment of beach equipment and the shaded patio is perfect for doing some grilling and enjoying a few beers out of the heat. If you've never been to AMI before, the location is ideal: adjacent to a free trolley stop (useful for going places with limited parking, such as Bridge Street stores), close to the supermarket, pharmacy, and the main bridge on/off the island (for day trips), while also being in a quiet residential neighborhood near a playground. Lelia and Justin were welcoming, helpful and prompt in their communications. Highly recommended.
We Love the Beach Shack>
We are heading home from 5 days at the Beach Shack . This place was perfect for us ! So cute, spotlessly clean, everything you need already there'. Centrally located to easily get around AMI. The trolley service is great and very useful
I adult and 4 teenagers found this spot to be perfect for us ! Recommend !!!!
AMI Beach Shack March 2023>
We are a family of 5 + dog. This place has two bedrooms and ample space for all 5 of us. The sunrise can be seen from the deck, and the walk to the beach is so short ( ocean side and less then a 2min walk), and from that side you can watch the sunsets. The house has all sorts of amenities for convenience (i.e grilling utensils, baking utensils, quick dry towels for the beach). Evenings (sleeping specifically), beds are comfy. However, due to the stress on the AC, the house can only be cooled to 72, which is not the ice box we enjoy at home so if you have a personal fan, I'd bring it as the house is not equipped with ceiling fans. The yard is not fenced in so if you do bring your dog take note of that as the locals (neighbor next door) is a pest when it comes to pets. She didn't ruin our enjoyment of the home, but for future renters, she is a bit aggressive and will not hesitate to complicate your stay. Vacationado and specifically Lelia Smarte was very easy to work with and very professional. I would definitely stay here again as the house is cute and Vacationado was very accommodating. I'm giving it a 5star as it came as advertised and we enjoyed ourselves immensely.
AMI Beach Shack>
The AMI Beach Shack had everything we needed for a girls' beach weekend including beach chairs, umbrellas and towels. The location was great, just three blocks to a beautiful beach and a short trolley ride to restaurants and shopping. The Shack itself has been completely redone and is clean, comfortable and cute. The Vacationado hosts were easy to reach when we had questions and communicated quickly. We enjoyed our stay here!
We really enjoyed our stay. Response to my questions were answered very quickly. Very Clean and Well stocked with everything we needed. Close to everything and very peaceful. Looking forward to another stay at this fine getaway. Thanks to everyone involved in making this happen.
Very neat and clean.
Staff was fantastic. Great communication. House was as advertised. Thank you again for great service.
Cute home on Anna Maria Islamd>
We loved the AMI Beach Shack. Great location and adorably decorated. We had two minor issues while staying that were immediately responded to and resolved. It was a great vacation for a family of 4.
AMI Beach Shack>
Great house and perfect for our girls trip (2 of us). The house was in a great location, quiet neighborhood, super short walk to the beach, and the home was really clean. They supplied everything we needed for the week in regard to paper products, beach going gear, laundry and dish soap. That made our stay much easier. We enjoyed sitting on both to top deck and bottom, walking to restaurants or nearby shopping and of course the beautiful beach. We spent every day at the beach. You'll love the beautiful sand and water. Can't wait to visit again!
Great Host >
This was a great place to stay. It was conveniently located to the beach, great shops and dinner restaurants. The property was clean and very nice with great beach supplies for the entire family!
Beach Shack Revie>
Nothing "shack" about this site. Comfortable and clean. Update and a lot of nice touches. Plenty of room. Comfortable bed. Updated, large kitchen. Quick walk to beautiful Bradenton Beach. Staff immediately responsive to any questions (which were few because they communicated so well throughout. Grateful for the help and for the great last two weeks after the difficult last two years. Thank you! Would definitely be interested in staying at this site again.
Loved the Beach House so much we rented it again for next year
Amazing beach shack experience >
If you are searching for a marvelous beach condo this place is for you. The AMI beach shack was accurately photographed in the posting and went above and beyond in beach equipment as the household items. The shack was very spacious with two options for outdoor seating. The shack is under a 2 minute walk from the beach. This place is a great deal! We will for sure be staying at the AMI when we return to Anna Maria Island.
Another wonderful stay!>
This is our second time renting the Beach Shack and it did not disappoint. The location is fantastic. The house provides everything you need to be comfortable. Beach chairs, kids toys and extras are available if needed. The downstairs patio/grill area is clean and a great place to hang out. I can't wait to come back again.
