Anna Maria cottage description

COASTAL LIVING NOVEMBER 2010 PAGE 60 SAYS 'ANNA MARIA ISLAND IS NUMBER 3 DREAM TOWN.' Welcome to Villa Frangipani! There really is never a time of the year when Anna Maria Island is not delightful. We are on the GULF side of Anna Maria. Staying in our cottage at the North end of Anna Maria is truly an experience your family will remember. Our beaches are unspoiled and uncrowded. Sandbars and tidal pools rise out of the water at low tide and create a wonderful spot to see sea life and look for beautiful 'unoccupied' shells. Our home is not your typical 'investment' property bought for a quick return. It is meticulously maintained and lavishly loved. Our visitors who share our home are welcomed with open arms and we know you will love our home and its location as much as we do. Our craftsman style cottage is reminiscent of times past at the Florida sea shore. There are no steps to climb from the ground level. It is cozy and elegantly decorated with beautiful art and antiques. Our screened heated pool and lanai offers insect protection while you hear the sounds of the ocean just outside our gate. The fully equipped kitchen and gas grill allow you to cook in when desired, and the proximity to the nearby restaurants on the island offer wonderful dining experiences without having to travel off the island. Our location is priivate and conveniently located to the beach for people bringing children. OUR RENTAL SCHEDULE IN HIGH SEASON IS SUNDAY TO SUNDAY. WE DO NOT RENT FOR LESS THAN 7 NIGHTS IN HIGH SEASON. FOR OFF SEASON RATES, PLEASE INQUIRE.

No roads to cross and just twenty steps out the backyard gate, you arrive on a private crescent shaped beach that is never crowded. Come back home to the cottage from the beach, where a beautiful, large heated pool awaits for you to float leisurely, or swim your laps if desired. Be sure to check out the virtual tour shown on the bottom of the page for more detailed photos of our home. Our rates are competitive with other high end Gulf front homes.

Please call us for rates, other details and availability as our calendar changes daily. We are sometimes interested in trades. Please contact us with like interest.

Come fall in love with Anna Maria and our beautiful cottage! Please view Villa Frangipani's virtual tour on this website!

                  I rent my cottage for weekly rentals on a Sunday to Sunday basis.


                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2009

                  About the owner: I relocated to Florida from the Virgin Islands. I found Anna Maria Island by accident. It was a business trip one Friday to nearby Sarasota and I decided to take the scenic road home. After discovering the beauty and unspoiled development on the island, I started my quest for an island property. I fell in love with the tranquility here. The beautiful clear water and the pristine white sand beaches speak volumes about why the rental season here is so successful. It's quiet and unlike any other beach location in Florida. Come see for yourself.

                  Why the Owner Chose Anna Maria:
                  Anna Maria draws travelers from the world over. The tropical weather and the proximity to four airports makes it quite easy to travel to Anna Maria. Orlando is also close by for day trips to the amusement parks and you can 'recover' back in the quiet surroundings of Anna Maria. Anna Maria has several outstanding restaurants within walking distance of the cottage. If you want to drive into Long Boat Key or Sarasota, the restaurant opportunities are endless. There are no high rise buildings here! Ride the free trolley shuttle and tour the island. Transfer to a bus and ride all the way to St. Armand's circle for fantastic shopping in Sarasota. The opportunities are endless for those wanting activities and distraction. Return back to the cottage for peace and serenity.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                  Frangipani is located 20 steps to a sandy beach. Favorite activities are kayaking to the sandbar a few hundred yards off shore and collecting sand dollars. Being able to hear the waves from the house, draws us down to the beach in the morning with our coffee and in the evenings for an incredible sunset and to watch the dolphins frolic. Minutes to historic Bean Point and both piers which have wonderful restaurants. Having an early morning breakfast while watching the sunrise and the fishermen on the pier reminds me of earlier years spent in Florida as a child.
