Enjoy the best view on Anna Maria Island - There is getting away from it all and there’s completely removing yourself from reality. Experience a near ethereal level of luxury by spending a week at the vacation home so wisely and whimsically dubbed Rest A Shore. (4) Bedroom, (3.5) Bathroom, accommodates up to (8) people: 1 King, 1 Queen, 4 Twins.

It wouldn’t really be giving this vacation home justice to just describe the amenities of this wonderful vacation home directly on Tampa Bay...it’s a fully immersive experience. So let’s walk you through it:

The drive to 838 S Bay Blvd is both a feast for the eyes and long enough to make you think you must have somehow missed it. But we promise there is still nothing but blue skies; Rest A Shore offers the utmost privacy. You’ll pass indulgent homes in the style of old and new Florida architectures and when you see yachts and sailboats docked at the marina, you’ll know you’re almost there.

Pulling up into the driveway, tucked away behind a cascade of saw palms and silver buttonwood tree, is the home plucked straight from vacation dreams you never realized you always had. The cars can stay parked in the driveway or protected from Florida sunshine and rain in a separate two car garage. With suitcases in hand, you’ll walk up to the front door, a balmy bay breeze swaying the palms trees and a rope hammock. You don’t exactly have a front yard…more like your own private shady grove spreading out and around your new home away from home in paradise.

You can catch a glimpse of all the wide open space and sunshine through the glass of the front door but once inside, the pure decadence of this house comes over you. This effervescent luxury rental is a balance of modern comfort and casual beach living, and it all sits against an endless backdrop of the bay and pool deck.

The heated* pool sits shimmering like a crown jewel in the pool deck. You think of how golden tan you’ll be after a few days lounging in the flamingo pink chairs. Let the kids play Marco Polo all day and they’ll be tuckered out early. Giving grownups time to enjoy a soak in the hot tub.

During your stay you’ll notice how Florida waters change with the time of day. With the Sunshine Skyway Bridge sitting on the horizon, the bay water shimmers in silver and gray during the slow creep of morning. By the time the sky has exploded into sunset, gold coins seem to glisten and bob in the water under a heavy, melting sun. You’ll never see the same vista twice and it all sits living and breathing right outside, visible from most rooms of the house.

Take in the best vantage point by climbing a glamorous spiral staircase to the master bedroom. A king bed sits in this romantic little nook with wide windows giving an even higher look across Anna Maria Island’s natural beauty. Let yourself wake up slowly out on the deck. Sunshine pouring through sliding glass doors is a lovely alternate to alarm clocks. It even has a FoosBall table!

This is a house that doesn’t give you a mere taste of island life; this home celebrates it. And it can be the place where some of your most treasured travel memories happen. Spend a truly spectacular honeymoon away from everything except the one you love. You can finally get everyone in the family together at Rest Ashore; eight people can sleep comfortably in this vacation home and it’s impossible to imagine feeling cramped. Family vacation and special events are the time when the handed-down-for-generations recipes come out and this vacation home is more than ready to accommodate.

The appliances are all updated and in the case of the refrigerator, extra-large with room for all your holiday eats and treats. The warm and welcoming kitchen island will quickly become a favorite gathering spot for company and conversation. The marine blue dining table sparks dinner conversation and with full bellies you can watch all your favorite movies on a wall mounted flat screen. Or simply load up the dishwasher and stay around the table for a good old fashioned board game night. It is a vacation rental classic activity after all.

During cooler months, open the bay front doors a crack and spark up the fireplace. Some music, some appetizers and someone to cuddle with on the cushy, tropical colored couches will put you in a state of relaxed bliss some people actually believe can only be found in high rise hotels. We love our local spas like Acquea Aveda and Salon Salon, but you can have your own day of beauty treatments in any one of the bathrooms. Give yourself a pedicure perched on the edge of a sunken tub where you just took your first bubble bath in years. Or let all that stress from back home wash away among the chic glass tile work of a tucked away shower in the guest bedroom.

Any indulgence you could want in a vacation home can be found at Rest Ashore. Start planning your escape to this luxury rental on the north end of Anna Maria and book with Island Real Estate today.
