Anna Maria house description

This is the CLEANEST AND BRIGHTEST vacation rental you will find on the island! This bungalow is the SECOND FLOOR UNIT of a beachfront duplex. (The 3 bedroom ground floor unit is available as VRBO #298525)

Welcome to paradise! ANNA MARIA ISLAND is the first of the barrier islands located along Florida's Gulf Coast. It is about 7 miles long and 1/2 a mile wide. It is known for beautiful beaches, breathtaking sunsets and a boat load of really nice people. The number one activity in the area is to DO NOTHING AND RELAX ON THE BEACH.

This charming BEACH HOUSE is tucked away on a VERY QUIET STREET in the sleepy north end of the island. Far away from traffic, crowds, and tourists who like to party. It is the 2ND HOUSE FROM THE BEACH with no roads to block access. If you open your bedroom window at night, the only sound will be the rolling surf on the beach. This is truly the BEST LOCATION on the Island.

Your front door is less than 1 minute from one of the most beautiful beaches in Florida. The sand is like POWDERED SUGAR. It never gets hot on your feet because it is 99% pure quartz. The water is warm and shallow. The fishing is excellent. The SANDBAR RESTAURANT is a 5 minute stroll down the beach.

The unit is light and bright with a multitude of windows showcasing BREATHTAKING GULF VIEWS. Everything has been recently updated in a coastal decor featuring hand painted starfish on the walls. Some of the key amenities include a 47' Flat Panel HIGH DEFINITION TV with BOSE home theatre, PLAYSTATION 2, lightning fast WI FI INTERNET and a Stearns & Foster (firm) KING SIZE BED.

Please view our HIGH DEFINITION VIRTUAL TOUR, then call or email with any questions. Book early because the premium dates fill up fast. With its ultra premium location and brand new amenities, this is the BEST VALUE on the vacation rental market!

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2004

              About the owner: Originally from Minnesota, my husband and I moved to Anna Maria Island 10 years ago with our children to live the dream. That dream being, residing in a small beach community with pristine beaches and powdered sugar sand. Safe, quiet streets, and a great sense of community.

              Why the Owner Chose Anna Maria:
              We purchased this home 100% because of it's location. The view out of each west facing window is breathtaking. The property is located on a quiet dead end street and is only a few steps to one of the most pristine beaches in the world.
