Old Florida at Bungalow Beach Resort on Anna Maria Island

| Suncoast Post Staff |

Make no mistake—these are challenging times in our life. This chapter is something that will be talked about hundreds of years from now, yet we’re only in the early stages. When the dust settles and life resumes, there’s a place on Anna Maria Island that you’ll want to check out – Bungalow Beach Resort!

Imagine sleeping in a bungalow right on the beach—in fact one of the nicest beaches in the world. We call it the Bungalow Beach Resort. A series of little yellow buildings with bedrooms, kitchens and sitting areas—all in view of the sand and the Gulf of Mexico. There’s also a heated pool on the campus as well.

This is ‘Old Florida.’ A ‘ma & pa’ boutique experience in the Sarasota region. It’s been around for decades and only getting more popular as corporations dot the skyline with 18-story high-rise hotels.

In the future

Check in, unpack and explore the neighborhood. Rent a bike and ride farther north to the tip of Anna Maria Island, or a few blocks south to Historic Bridge Street. Wake up and walk down the beach to breakfast.

People come from around the world, or around the block to stay with us.

“My wife and I check in to the Bungalow Beach resort at least once a year for the past decade. It’s clean, safe, convenient and has such a quaint personality,” said Ray Collins, best known as the anchor on local TV for decades and now selling real estate.

“We check in and leave the world behind for the weekend. You can walk or ride a bike anywhere on the island and have no reason to touch your car until it’s time to check out!”
