The den area on the second floor is a great place for children to hang out while parents relax in the living room. 3 king bedrooms mean that no one has to compromise during a vacation with multiple couples. Flat-screen TV's, stainless steel appliances, beautiful 'wood' tile floors, granite countertops, free phone/cable/wireless Internet. This home is located close to both a north and southbound trolley stops making it easy to get around the island without a vehicle. It is only a 2 to 3-minute walk to the beach and has beach chairs, umbrella and cart for your uses. Take the trolley to Bean Point, or historic Bridge St. Have a bite at Chateau Anna Maria, or the Beach Bistro or grab a burger and enjoy the game at Skinny's. Go paddle boarding or kayaking in the crystal clear blue waters in the Gulf Of Mexico.

"You are vacationing in a residential area. Please be a good neighbor by keeping the noise to a respectful level during the day and night. Excessive and unreasonable noise can deprive neighbors of the peaceful enjoyment of their private property"

​​​​​​​We might be only 7 miles long but Anna Maria has everything you could possibly need for your perfect
beach vacation. Traveling with a little one? All our homes come with pack & plays and highchairs. Need
more? There are several great rental places that have everything from baby gates to golfcarts, and they
will drop them right off at your vacation property for you. No need to pack beach towels we provide
those for you.
Remember we are laid back and on Island time - Flip-flops and shorts are ok for breakfast, lunch and
dinner no need to overpack you will most likely be in your cutest bathing suit or bikini anyways.
No need to pay the crazy high fees to check all those bags! With Publix, CVS, and Walgreens right on the
island you can grab any sunscreen, hair product anything needed, why haul it all with you?

Guests are allowed up to 2 dogs provided they are housebroken and must be friendly with other dogs and people. Pet must be disclosed upfront at the time of inquiring/booking. A one-time non-refundable fee of $150 will be due at the time of booking to accommodate for extra cleaning/pet sanitation.

Undeclared pets will be charged $500 and you will be required to vacate the property. By booking this property you are agreeing to the terms and fees associated with bringing an approved pet.

Our spa was broken and it was fixed very quickly and we enjoyed using it in the evening. My only negative is that the decking around the pool gets incredibly hot. Make sure to have flip flops near by, otherwise you will burn your feet, or your pets paws. Other than that, great property. The walk to the beach is around 5 mins. There is a cart with umbrellas, chairs and toys in the garage."

The house was very clean, well appointed and looked just like the pictures. We loved the pool, especially our 11 year old who would have swam in it 24/7 if possible. It is an easy walk to the beach and the bicycles were an added bonus. We would definitely stay here again."

"House was as described, walk to beach was not bad but got old with little ones after a few days. Beach wagon was broken when we arrived, it was replaced with a cart we couldn’t make use of and eventually a n identical wagon which made carrying all the chairs etc, easier. The lighter for the grill was on the tv stand when we arrived and was discovered by our 1 year old first, which was strange. None of the remotes had battery covers and two had no batteries, which were replaced by the handyman on his visit for an unrelated issue. Coffee pot still had water in it when we arrived. Other than that house seemed pretty clean but these things made me wonder how thorough cleaning team actually was. Our AC was going out when we arrived, it took a day and a half for us to figure this out, as we turned the temperature down slowly it slowly got hotter until it reached 80 and I reported the problem. It was fixed that same night but not before I was blamed for the problem for having turned it down to 68. I did not start out that cold, but explained we had continued to adjust the temperature down as it kept getting warmer. When the AC tech arrived it was not a frozen unit but in fact needed a charge of coolant. The AC technician assured me I had nothing to do with the problem and that turning the unit down below 70 would not cause a problem. I would never set my air below 70 normally, only did it to try and cool the hot house. I realize air conditioning malfunctioning is an unforeseen problem and not the hosts fault, but I have been renting vacation homes for many years and this is the first time a host has assumed that I caused a problem and told me that it was most likely my fault. The jets in the spa stopped working and I reported that as well, then they worked again but no one reported they had been repaired so I just assumed that someone had stopped by while we were gone and fixed it. Unfortunately the jets didn’t work again on our last night. Maybe there is a short in the system? Idk but I was tired of reporting problems. I’m sure it was great for whomever came after us. I would suggest instructions be given that ac can’t be turned below 70 if that is what they want. We also didn’t leave doors open. I don’t appreciate being blamed for a mechanical failure of the ac, which according to the tech wouldn’t have been my fault no matter what I set it to. I believe him."

"This was our third vacation to AMI and second stay at this property. Once again this vacation far exceeded our wildest dreams. I believe my husband said "it will be hard to ever top this trip". He couldn't be more RIGHT! We spent 10 days in Florida and stayed 8 on AMI with 2 in Orlando. This property is one of favorites for hosting friends and children because of it's wonderful layout, location, and amenities. The house provides everything you need to be comfortable for your vacation including bicycles, tons of beach towels, bath towels, and an abundance of pool toys and floaties for your little ones entertainment. We stayed at the Seahorse Beach House with 4 adults and 4 children. The older boys (10 & 8) loved the Xbox and bunk beds while our little girls (2 & 4) couldn't stay out of the pool. We especially love the accommodation of tons of beach chairs and the beach cart. Every day we explored a new beach on the island and we had everything we needed to enjoy our days on the beach comfortably thanks to the amenities provided by the house. The location of this property is ideal as a central location. Prior visits we stayed on the North end of AMI, but we disliked the annoyance of long drives to Manatee Beach or Bridge Street from the North end. The Seahorse Beach House is a great location making your trips short to any destination on the island. The traffic on the island was a little busy this time of year so we were super thankful when the local firefighters stopped us to entertain our kids with their lights and truck and gave us a little brief on the using the crosswalk. Right by the house is a crosswalk that I recommend using if walking to Holmes Beach or crossing the road. Motorists have to stop for crosswalks and it's safer for all. Lastly, Claire and Emma are just dolls to deal with and quick to return emails or phone calls at all times. Can not say enough about this wonderful rental and this Island Paradise! We will be back! I will add that the DVD player could use some instructions. We could not get it to work. I know, who in their right mind would watch movies on an Island Paradise. However after 5 days of sun-scorched kiddos we found a need to nestle in before bedtime with a movie. We had brought our own movies, but could not figure out the system. FYI!"

The pool was much larger than it appeared and our family enjoyed it almost more than the beach. We were able to walk everywhere or hop on a free trolley, which the closest stop was a street away. The walk to the beach was very short with beach access right at the end of the road, a couple of minutes walk. We plan to stay here again in the near future, we are local to the area and NEED a beach getaway a little more often."

"This is a really great place to stay. A beautifully presented house, with everything you need to make a fun filled vacation. The location is perfect, with a short 5 min walk you can be at the stunning beach, or a 10 min drive you can be at Publix and the other stores on the island. The property is also right across the road from the free trolley stop, which runs the length of the island. Inside the house is modern, clean and spacious, the bedrooms are large and comfortable, with two of them having ensuite bathrooms. The kitchen area is very nice, and has everything you need to make your stay, home from home. The double garage has plenty of room to pull your car in, to keep it out of the Florida heat, and also has lots of pool and beach toys that you can use. There were also bikes available, but we did not use them. Perhaps the jewel in the crown of this house is the outside area, to the back of the property is a private, large pool area. You will find tables and chairs, sun beds, a gas grill, and a large, well maintained pool, and infinity style hot tub pool. The pool was cleaned and maintained several times during our stay. The rental company was very good to deal with, they responded quickly to any questions and made the whole process from check in to check out very smooth, they understand the concept of amazing customer service, and deliver on it. I would highly recommend both the property and the rental company."
