The location is probably the best thing about this place - right on the beach in a quieter part of the island. The free trolley bus stops very near (going south) and a little further away going north (got a bit lost coming back in the dark - not sure if the driver let us off at the right spot!)...

Great location! Very nice staff. The beach is right there and they have lounge chairs you can use on the beach. The pool looked great although we spent our time at the beach. Had a great mother/daughter trip and would definitely come back here again!

I had two nights in a ground floor, 1 bedroom unit. It had a musty smell and the furnishings are really dated- I would say early nineties when it was last furnished. (white cane and pastels) . It also shows lots of DIY updates, no money has been spent on this property and it shows. It is unfortunate as the...

We looked for the right place to get away for a long weekend to celebrate our anniversary. The Blue Water was everything we wanted. Our room was very comfortable and the location was very convenient to everything we wanted to see and do. The staff was very accommodating with a late check-in and very friendly. Despite arriving in the middle...

Blue Water Beach Club checked off all the boxes for our FL visit. 1) On the beach 2) The beach wasn't crowded 3) The rooms were clean 4) Located in a quiet residential area 5) Reasonably priced. I believe I researched places to stay for 3 weeks from Clear Water down to Siesta Key to find just the right place....

The place is very clean and fairly sound proof. Old style Florida with a pleasant face lift. Tried to get the suite at the end but it was booked. Staff very friendly. Only suggestion would be to put tint on sliding doors leading to pool area. If the drapes are open everyone can see in.

We had never visited Anna Maria Island, so I checked reviews on rentals and chose Blue Water Beach Club based on what I read, reinforced by pleasant and helpful emails and calls with the staff at Blue Water. The place doesn't look like much from the street, but everything is immaculately maintained with beautiful grounds, and we were pleasantly surprised...

Nothing fancy but very comfortable. The location was perfect and the views were amazing! I watched the sunsets every evening in the nice comfortable beach chairs. The pool was always very clean and the staff was very hospitable. Great stay at the Blue Water Beach Club!
