Property description

Look out over the crystal blue gulf and heated pool from the balcony of this beautiful 2 bedroom, 2 bath condo in the popular Playa Encantada complex. There are two tennis courts, spa, shuffleboard court, covered parking, nicely landscaped grounds and elevator access. The unit has a full sized washer and dryer just off the fully equipped kitchen. Dishwasher, microwave, coffee pot, blender, toaster mixers ect...You can mix up a batch of margaritas and sip them inside or enjoy the sunset from the balcony's new patio table and chairs. There is free WiFi and free local calling provided. The spacious living room includes a 32' flat screen TV and DVD player. The large Master bedroom has a king sized bed and 32' TV. The second bedroom includes 2 twin beds and a 19' TV. All linens and towels are provided. The condo is just steps away from the wide, pristine beaches and calm waters of Anna Maria. Beach lounge chairs are provided. You can do as much or as little as you'd like from this perfectly situated condo. The condo is rented in two week and longer intervals and a 15% discount will be given to stays of 28 days or longer. There's plenty of storage space for a longer stay. Take the free trolly anywhere you'd like on the island.
Family Circle Magazine, May/2012 Issue, page 90, article, 'The Best of Florida' boasts about Anna Maria's NO high-rises, NO big-chain hotels or NO fast-food restaurants-just vintage bungalows, small-scale condos and mom-and-pop shops. Ditch the car and ride your bike to the bay and Gulf beaches. Please consider the comfortable luxury of Playa Encantada for your next Anna Maria vacation.
Playa is a no smoking complex and no pets are permitted.

Manager info

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.
