COVID-19 Information

Current status:  Phase 2 of Florida Reopening  (updated July 27, 2020)

Vacation Rental Homes are now open for short-term stays!* 

*There are still a few restrictions:

  • We may not accept reservations from international guests or guests from states or areas with a high rate of infection.
  • Reservations must be for 10 people or less.
  • CDC recommendations, including social distancing guidelines, must be followed when guests are outside the home.
  • Masks are now required by County and City orders where social distancing cannot be observed or when inside a business establishment. 

    You may review the orders here for exceptions and violation information:  Holmes Beach  |  Anna Maria  |  Manatee County
  • Beaches are open.
  • Restaurants may allow bar-top seating and can fill dining rooms at up to 50% capacity;  As of June 27th, bars may not serve alcohol for consumption on the premises, though they may still offer drinks to go.
  • Retail stores are open at full capacity.
We want you to enjoy your vacation, and we want to be here to support you. Please support us by helping the Island avoid another shutdown:
  • Practice social distancing at all times when outside the home.
  • Wear a mask when you'll be around others, especially indoors
Please refer to the appropriate Phase in the governor's Guidelines for Opening Up Florida and the Florida Governor's Executive Orders for further information about Florida's plan to reopen.

**Note that the Guideline document is simply that - a guideline - and the Governor's orders for the various phases may differ from this plan.

Information for Guests with Upcoming Reservations
To keep up with the frequent changes we've all been experiencing, we've adopted a flexible policy as follows:

For guests arriving within 30 days, if you are unable to travel or we are unable to check you in due to COVID-related restrictions or regulations, we can move your reservation to a future date or cancel your reservation for a full refund. Since planning for the future can be difficult right now, we can hold the balance toward a future stay for guests who know they want to reschedule, but aren't able to choose new dates yet.

This is a rolling 30-day policy that will stay in effect until revoked. For cancelations that are not related to COVID-19 restrictions or regulations, our standard cancelation policy applies. You can review that policy here.

If you have any questions, email is the best way to reach us these days. Please send an email to [email protected].

To all those we've spoken to over the past few weeks to make adjustments to their reservations, thank you for your understanding, patience, and support! And to all those we've already been able to welcome back to the Island, thank you for yours as well. We truly appreciate your business and hope all of you will make it back to the Island soon!
