Hello and welcome to our guests and friends. If you are new to the Bamboo, we are a small, five-unit family-owned place on Anna Maria Island on the west coast of Florida, right on the beach. Our grounds are spacious with a flowered meadow, and five gulf-front patios under ancient Australian pines. We have excellent reviews and quite a good reputation for being a wonderful getaway.
Come stay with us for three days, a week, or longer– our rates are lowest August 16-December 15.
Summer is here–bring your bathing suit!
The Island is ALIVE
The Island is ALIVE with summer flora and fauna– the grass is growing faster than we can cut it and the Mexican Petunias are surrounding the house. Quick- get a machete and hack a path to the car; we’re almost out of beer and sunscreen! Temperature and humidity are running neck and neck in the 90’s– be thankful for cooling afternoon thunderstorms, and that our hero John Gorrie invented air conditioning.

Thanks to the Sandags for the beautiful photo of the sunbeams, aka Crepuscular Rays, lighting the way to the beach.
Warm and Beautiful
Although the weather is pretty warm, the cool breeze off the Gulf makes afternoons heavenly, perfect for some down-time.
The Happy Goddess
Our dear friend, The Happy Goddess, has made her journey to Florida and is living in a sweet cottage in nearby Bradenton. We love having her as our guest, and she brings with her the December Mercation– a vacation for mermaids (you know who you are), and the ever-popular “Making Wishes Come True” Goddess Retreat in January. Ladies, come to the Bamboo and join her, and be at peace with yourself!
