Enjoy spectacular sunsets and views of the turquoise waters of the Gulf of Mexico from every room! This 3 bedroom, 2 bath home was extensively remodeled in 2004, all set for you to enjoy the beach right outside your back door. The kitchen is fully stocked with everything you'll need to cook anything you'd like, from pancakes to lobster thermidor. An open split floor plan provides privacy and makes the living area perfect for socializing. Central air, flat-panel televisions in every room, and comfortable furnishings will make your stay especially enjoyable.
The pristine waters of the Gulf of Mexico and wonderful white sand beach are right outside the back door...you can't get any closer! Leave your shoes at the door and enjoy your stay...you won't want to go anywhere else once you step into the house. Pour a tall, cool drink and enjoy it on your private beach as you watch the kids build sandcastles and boogie board in the surf. No need to haul your beach stuff back and forth to your rental...you're already on the beach! Have a leisurely lunch in the bug-free, fully screened beach side lanai while you listen to the surf's serenade.
Later on, take a stroll south down the beach to the Sand Bar Restaurant and enjoy a beverage of your choice and listen to the musician play "Cheeseburger in Paradise." Maybe stay for lunch or dinner and have your own cheeseburger in paradise!
If you'd like to explore, you can take a day trip to Egmont Key National Park and explore the miles of deserted beaches and brick paths built decades earlier. Or stay here on Anna Maria and discover the interesting history of this barrier island, as well as its wonderful wildlife. You'll find manatees, box turtles, dolphins and sea birds, as well as our local bright green parrots, who love to let you know they're around by happily squawking out their greetings. It's easy to take the free trolley all over the island and see how special this place really is!
Banana Wind is tucked away at the north end of the island, close to the things the matter. Walk to the Rod & Reel Pier for a world-famous grouper sandwich. Take time to rent a pole and catch a big one! Bring the whole family and enjoy yourself. Then stroll back to your home on the beach. At the end of the day you'll be in the perfect place to participate in the daily ritual of watching the sun set slowly over the pristine waters of the Gulf of Mexico. You're in paradise!
