Luxury Amenities to Look for in a Vacation Rental

| April 19, 2023

There are a lot of options when it comes to vacation home rentals. Even when you are looking only for luxury rentals, the choices can seem a little overwhelming at times. Knowing what questions to ask and what luxury amenities to look for will go a long way to making the task of choosing a home a little easier. Here are a few things to consider.


According to the old joke, the three most important things in real estate are location, location and location. That is also true when it comes to choosing a vacation home to rent. You want to be in a home that does not leave you feeling unsafe. If your plans include a lot of time on the beautiful Anna Maria Island beaches, then choosing one of our beachfront homes is a great way to go. If you are looking for more serene settings, perhaps one of the waterfront homes would be the better choice. Most of our homes have stunning views that will allow you to enjoy our picturesque sunrises and sunsets.


Many vacation homes go bare bones with their kitchens. That’s not our way. Many of our homes have large gourmet kitchens that let you play chef to your hungry family. All of our kitchens are fully equipped and have everything you need to make great meals. Unlike some vacation rentals that make you purchase basic supplies, our homes include paper products such as paper towels that are already there for you. If you want to get out of the kitchen, our homes also have grills for use outside.

Plus, you can take advantage of our “Stock Your Refrigerator” service. If you provide us a shopping list 7 days prior to arrival, we can “stock the fridge” prior to your arrival.


What vacation is complete without recreation? Having fun is something we do well. Some of the luxury amenities you will find for recreation include a golf cart and bicycles for exploring the island. Each home comes with paddleboards and kayaks for you to use. We even remember the life jackets for your safety. One has a miniature golf course, while another has a sand volleyball court.


When considering luxury amenities to look for, don’t forget the bedroom. After all the recreation, beach and good food, a good night’s sleep is definitely something to look forward to. We outfit our homes with high-quality linens, including the Slumber Cloud Lightweight Comforter. Using NASA-approved temperature regulating technology, this is perfect for those in warmer climates or those who just prefer a lighter cover.


All the bathrooms are stocked with the supplies you need to make your stay enjoyable. Aside from high-quality towels, you’ll find soaps, shampoos, conditioners, cotton balls and more. Even if you forget your toothbrush and toothpaste, we have you covered.

Local Experts

So often, visitors rent a vacation home and when they need help or have questions, they find that the person on the other end of the phone isn’t even in the same state. That’s not how we operate.

When we call our staff local experts, it’s because they are. They live and work here. When they recommend an ice cream shop or an art museum, it’s because they’ve been there. Our experts are available when you need them, not just during normal business hours. Our goal is a simple one: To help you have the best vacation possible.

For more information on our homes and their luxury amenities, you can view the homes or contact us for specific questions. We can’t wait to host your visit.
