We had a wonderful time at Beach Basket! The house and location were perfect!! Suzanne was amazingly helpful and accommodating throughout our whole stay! The house was stocked with everything needed in the kitchen for wonderful meals with the family! There is an abundance of seating for everyone and the beds were very comfortable. The house was spotless! The pool was perfect

There are so many wonderful things to say about this property it is hard to know where to begin. This is by far the most considerately and vastly stocked rental in our multiple rental experiences. The kitchen is superb and has everything you need and all in excellent condition and working order.
The bedrooms are all lovely. Soft bedding, lovely mattresses and the sun room with the single beds was perfect for our 5-year-old. The pool is fantastic! Just the right size and temperature and we spent a lot of time floating in the inflated tubes provided. We loved the outdoor shower! The beach equipment is truly outstanding - from coolers to chairs to umbrellas and a wagon to transport it all - all you need is sunscreen! There’s even a great selection of beach books to choose from!
If you crave Old Florida, than this is the property. A gorgeous bungalow with the right amount of modern upgrades, and a air conditioner that keeps the whole house a perfect 74 degrees. This perfect little house is steps away from one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. Walking distance to great places to eat, shop and adventure. We can’t wait to come back

The 1926 house was a perfect vacation week for us. We loved the original architecture of the home with the added upgrades. The landscape was beautiful and the pool was private and very relaxing. The location was amazing with very close beach access, shopping and dining. We would definitely come back!

This is our very favorite place to stay on AMI! Beach Basket has everything we need to make our stay easy, comfortable, and fun, including beach chairs, heavenly beds, and a waffle iron. We love to lounge and swim in the private backyard pool and the kids think it’s a treat to use the enclosed backyard shower! When we manage to pull ourselves away from the cottage and beach we love to eat at Hurricane Hanks (those onion rings!), Ginny’s and Jane E.’s, and Wicked Cantina. We’ll sometimes take the 2 mile walk down the beach to have all-you-can-eat pancakes at the AMI Beach Cafe (but we take the free trolley ride back). We also love to rent a boat for a full or half day from the Bradenton Beach Marina. It doesn’t matter if it’s winter or summer—always a great place to be and there’s usually a local farmer’s market or festival to attend.

The Beach Basket is the most adorable house and so close to beach. Everything needed to have a wonderful carefree vacation. Stayed April 2019 and plan to go back soon

We were 3 adults and one toddler. This house was a perfect fit! We were able to rent a crib and put it in the little sun porch area for our 2 year old so everyone had their own room. The pool was the perfect temperature, everything is the house worked and totally met our needs. Not to mention the beach. Steps away and heavenly. Perfect toddler beach, powdery white sand and little baby waves, dolphins and birds galore. We will be coming back.

This was our 5th annual return to the Beach Basket - this wonderful beach house was even lovelier than last year. A new umbrella table and chairs next to the sparkling pool added much to lunches/dinners pool-side. We arrive and feel immediately at home - all we need for a relaxing vacation is waiting for us. Sand chairs and beach towels for the short walk to the beach, lounges by the pool, a well-organized and outfitted kitchen, extremely comfortable bedrooms and baths, and charming living spaces decorated with a beachy vibe. We're already looking forward to next year!

Cozy and oh-so-close to the beach! My husband and I loved the Beach Basket. The location can't be beat - quiet street and just steps from the beautiful beach. The house was neat as a pin, the beds comfortable, the ceiling fans whisper quiet (I am particular about quiet when I sleep), and the patio and pool area delightful. We had no problems whatsoever during our 5-day stay. I'd recommend this cozy home in a heartbeat.

Wonderful Cottage by the Ocean! Beach Basket is a real "Old Florida" cottage just steps from the white sand AMI beach. The owners have made sure this home has everything you need from beach toys, chairs & umbrellas to comfy beds, blankets and a kitchen thats ready for cooking. I visited with my husband and 3 boys and we were happy as can be. Be sure to rent some bikes to cruise Pine Street and all the sights of Anna Maria Island & Holmes Beach!

Wonderful beach bungalow! This was our second time staying at Beach Basket, and we had another great stay! The house is so charming and immediately puts you into vacation mode. The location is perfect, especially if you have a golf cart as Pine Ave is just a quick drive away. The beach is steps away! We had a couple issues, but Suzanne with Beach Life Vacation Rentals was extremely responsive and helpful. We look forward to staying there again next summer!

Beautiful and cozy cottage close to the beach! We loved beach basket! Everything was very clean and nicely decorated. It has a beach feel and utilizes the space well. It is a few houses from a gorgeous beach. We also enjoyed the outdoor shower. We hope to go back again!

Return trip #5 to the fabulous Beach Basket
Another fabulous stay at our wonderful Beach Basket!! From the wonderfully decorated home to the beautiful (and warm!) back yard pool to the beach only steps away - who wouldn't return 5 years in a row? We love to arrive and note the new touches the owners have added, this house is beautifully cared for with visitors clearly treating it with love as well. Everything for a relaxing vacation is at your disposal, new sand chairs and towels for lazy days at the beach - lounge chairs and noodles for pool time. We've already booked for 2019!
