Anna Maria house description

Read our Feedback, 100% POSITIVE. This is without a doubt the CLEANEST and BRIGHTEST vacation rental you will find on the island! This bungalow is the GROUND FLOOR UNIT of a beach front duplex. (The 2 bedroom upper level unit is available as VRBO #260347)

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. 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 30 seconds from the most PRISTINE BEACH 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. Everything has been recently updated in a fun coastal decor featuring hand painted starfish on the walls. Featured amenities include a 47' Flat Panel HIGH DEFINITION TV with BLUE RAY DISC player and a great selection of movies, IPOD DOCKING STATION, and LIGHTNING FAST WI FI INTERNET. Some key features include PEEKS OF THE GULF, Mediterranean Style TERRAZZO Floors. The gourmet kitchen has GRANITE countertops, STAINLESS appliances and a MARGARITAVILLE FROZEN CONCOCTION MAKER.

Please DON'T HESITATE TO CALL or email with any questions. Book early because the premium dates will 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 here 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 its location. 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.
