About the owner: My wife and I have been married now for 37 years. We enjoy many outdoor activities. I fell in love with the water many years ago, and actually bought my first boat while working part time in college. While I enjoy hunting, I especially enjoy saltwater fishing. We also enjoy quiet time on the water, calm evenings at idle speed, watching and waiting for that beautiful sunset. We are members of the Gasparilla Krewe of Venus. We have a lot of fun throughout the year, at Krewe events as well as the many parades in which our Krewe is involved.
Why the Owner Chose Anna Maria: My wife and I first visited Anna Maria Island in the mid 1980's. We immediately fell in love with the charm of the island, the soft white sugar sand beaches, clear and colorful water, friendly locals, quaint shops, casual restaurants,and overall island lifestyle. We made many visits to Anna Maria over the years, hoping that someday we would be able to buy a home there. That hope came true in 1998, and we have enjoyed ourselves and our time on the island immensely. Being unable to use our home as frequently as we would like, we have decided to offer our home as a vacation rental and we hope that our quests will enjoy their time there as much as we have.
The Unique Benefits at this House: It seems that the world stops when we are there. The everyday pressures we all face in life, on our jobs, and daily struggles seem to disappear. Life just slows down, and we start to appreciate more the gift of life, and the joys and rewards that our hard work and dedication has provided us. The sun, the water, the happy smiles of people we meet, just seem to take us to another internal place.
