Type: On The Beach
Take just four steps from Wave Crest's back door and sink your toes into the white sand beach of Anna Maria Island or enjoy views of the Gulf of Mexico from the deck, Florida room, or the four Adirondack chairs right on the sand. This gulf-front cottage is located directly on the beach and will transport you back to a simpler time to relax and unwind.
Built in 1952, Wave Crest was the beach retreat enjoyed by Florida's Chiles family for 60 years. It has been recently expanded, refurbished and fitted with modern conveniences, but the basic design and materials have not changed. Original to the home are the heart of pine floors, walls, and ceilings in common areas. The wood inside, including the kitchen cabinets, is old-growth Florida longleaf yellow pine harvested from the Chiles' family farm.
The kitchen has been newly updated with quartz countertops and new appliances. New and antique furniture appoint the living areas and the laundry features a commercial grade washer and dryer. Internet, Wi-Fi, cable, Xbox and four smart TVs will keep you connected. Welcome to the 1950s with a modern touch!
This three-bedroom, three-bath beachfront vacation rental cottage has two queen bedrooms and one with two twin beds. All have private baths; two with walk-in showers and one with a shower/tub combination making this home ideal for six beach lovers.
Wave Crest is located directly on the gulf beach just 600 yards south of AMI's tranquil Bean Point. Shopping, dining, and the free AMI trolley are a short walk down the beach to Pine Avenue and the iconic Rod and Reel Pier is even closer to the east. Reserve Wave Crest and savor the sunsets while daily cares drip away.

Submitted via Wave Crest Guest Book entry by The Ellisons of South Carolina, for their stay in 5/2017: We stayed here at the end of June 2107. We have stayed in the same area on Anna Maria a few house to the north and love this area. It is quiet even when it's busy! Wave Crest was not our first choice, but due to a double booking we chose Wave Crest. We were very glad that the other house was double booked because this house was fabulous! It has the old Florida charm with all the updated amenities. Each bedroom has its own bath and two of the bathrooms attached to the bedrooms have outside entrances next to the outside shower. Very convenient when coming back from the beach. The Florida room was awesome and it also had a day bed and trundle in it for extra sleeping space. The beach supplies, chairs, umbrellas, toys and towels (beach towels have Wave Crest embroidered on them) are great. We have stayed in beach homes in the past and had to purchase our own when arriving, which we did again, but promptly returned them. We enjoyed our stay so much we are planning on booking again in the future. Submitted via Wave Crest Guest Book entry by The Ellisons of South Carolina, for their stay in 5/2017: The Best Beach Vacation Ever! This beach cottage and setting is perfect! Thanks to the owners for such a sweetly appointed accommodation! WE can't wait to return from SC! The Ellisons Submitted via Wave Crest Guest Book entry by The Herricks of West Newton, MA for their stay in 4/2017: Another fantastic week of Anna Maria! This is our second visit to Wave Crest - we absolutely love it here! Beautiful beach days, sunsets and great wild life too! Relaxing and wonderful family vacation! We will be back! The Herricks - Chris, Sharon, Vivian and Eli Submitted via Guest Book entry by Angel Fusaro from Lakeland, Florida for their stay in 7/2016: We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Wave Crest. It epitomized the traditional beach cottage with everything we could possibly need. The views from the enclosed porch offered respite from the heat and a great place to relax. The history of the house and the area were neat and offered a unique experience to recall. Definitely will stay again in the future. Submitted via Guest Book Entry by Kathryn Salgado from Tampa, Florida for their stay in 7/2016: Wave crest is the best beach cottage I have ever stayed in. Old fashion charm and a beautiful view of the beach. We really appreciated having an air conditioned Florida room facing the beach. That helped us escape the heat and still have a wonderful view. We also love the history of the house. So cool. Our stay was perfect. Submitted via FlipKey/TripAdvisor by Gary C. from Jamestown, Rhode Island, for their stay in 5/2016: We were excited about renting Wave Crest due to the pictures and information we had previously received. However, nothing prepared us for this beautiful cottage with the incredible views of both the ocean and sunset! We drove for about 3.5 hours from the east coast and had planned to go to dinner once we settled in to our home for the next week. That changed once we arrived that all changed as we immediately felt so comfortable that we decided we just wanted to settle in and relax. This enabled us to view our first of many sunsets during this week. This was our fourth trip to Anna Maria and we have enjoyed all of our stays there but nothing compares to the week we rented Wave Crest. We hope to come back soon and because of the size of this cottage to bring family or friends with us next time. View more reviews or submit your own »
