          Great Island location on the north end of Holmes Beach, close to restaurants and many outdoor activities. There's a free trolly to local areas. Fishing from the nearby pier, rent a kayak or bicycle and see the island from a unique perspective. Go to Bean point for an after noon swim in the crystal blue waters of the Gulf.

          Year Purchased: 2012

          About: We purchased the condo to spend more time with each other at the beach and allow our family to use it, too. We love Anna Maria because it's laid back and yet there's a lot to do, great restaurants and bars, swimming, beautiful beaches, fishing, museums and parks. Best of all no high rises to obstruct the view.
