Anna Maria house description

Willow Landing at 209 Willow Ave. is 1400 square feet of newly-tiled and painted island living designed for couples or families who love the beach or boating or both. And, unlike other rentals on the island, our rent INCLUDES CLEANING.

This ground level house is 200 yards from the Gulf beach (a two minute walk) , 25 steps from our dock, and within walking, biking or free trolley distance from a host of fun activities and shopping. Off-island and within 20 miles are multitudes of restaurants, shopping, other beaches and the arts and gardens of Sarasota.

The master bedroom sports two queen beds and a HD TV. The second bedroom has a queen bed and a futon/bunk which sleeps 3 comfortably. There is plenty of floor space for collapsible sleeping as well. Two renovated full baths provide a tub or a large walk-in shower. The full-sized washer and dryer are in the two-car garage as is the large freezer. A big beach wagon, chairs and beach towels ensure an easy walk to the Gulf. A flat panel, cabled TV will entertain the stay-at-homes. The fully-equipped large kitchen will ease most kitchen duties, while diners eat at the bar or on the extendable dining room table. And for the one who can't leave work at home, there is broadband, wi-fi and even a printer/fax for those distance office duties.

A screened lanai and outside seating area offer comfortable outside views of the 'trained' wildlife that visit the fish-cleaning station. Charcoal grilling is available also in the large back yard. After launching your boat close by, you may tie-up at Willow Landing's dock and seawall area. Boat, canoe and kayak rentals are available close by as well.

Willow Landing rents for a minimum of one week only.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2009

                  About the owner: We are the Wallace family, next generation owners of this great house near the most beautiful beaches in America. Our dad recently completed his stay on Anna Maria after 38 years, and we have re-created the dream with a complete 2009 re-do of the house he and Mom loved. We Wallaces have owned property and enjoyed the island and it's waters since 1958. This is our only property to rent, and we keep it in the lifestyle and condition that lets us enjoy the island to the max.

                  Why the Owner Chose Anna Maria:
                  We understand the value of island life having committed many holidays, vacations, reunions and, yes, even weddings to this special place in Florida. We see every reason to continue these habits and to share them with those who love to do what we do.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  Being located on the end of a canal has enabled us to anchor several fishing-style boats for a quick return to the open water any time of the day or night. Open bay waters are an easy ten minute cruise away. A block walk to the beach allows the non-fisherman easy access with the beach wagon for kids and stuff. The ground level design of this house is enabling and safe for toddlers, the elderly, grocery unloading and just more fun for everyone. The spacious garage provides salt-free, dry parking and unloading. We all have small dogs that we enjoy while we're here. There are miles of wonderful walking to be enjoyed, and the tiled floors are perfect for dogs and sandy feet. Newly restored and revived Pine Street shoppes and restaurants are just four walking blocks away. We love to have breakfast at the Sign of the Mermaid on the next block.
