Get the entire family back together, post-lockdown, in your very own Florida beach home

Having spent time away from loved ones, planning a future holiday with the extended family in tow could be the ideal post-lockdown getaway for many. Anna Maria Island, on Florida’s west coast, offers a large range of stylish villas, cottages and apartments, ready to cater to even the biggest of families, with the beautiful beaches on your doorstep.

Private use of your own villa not only reduces any hygiene worries, it also provides space for the multi-generation family holiday. Ranging from two bedroom to nine bedrooms, there is plenty of room for the grandparents, the little ones and the aunties and uncles. Many villas have private pools, games rooms and the sprawling white sandy beaches are never more than a few minutes away, making it ideal for those looking to enjoy wide open spaces when travel resumes.

Anna Maria Island is part of the wider Bradenton Area, an authentic slice of Florida just one hour from Tampa International Airport and two hours from Orlando International Airport, both with direct routes from the UK. The quaint downtown Bradenton is known for its charm, with local farmers markets and a peaceful Riverwalk. Out on the island, nothing over three storeys is allowed to be built and there are minimal chain establishments, instead you’ll find local, family run businesses ready to welcome holidaymakers.  

A seven-night holiday, in July 2021, starts from £1330 per person based on four adults and two children sharing a three-bedroom home. The prices include international flights, car hire and seven nights’ accommodation. The properties on the island are stylish and cosy whilst maintaining modern touches throughout.
