Located at the private north end of Anna Maria Island, and across the street from Tampa Bay, within walking distance to the Historic City Pier, restaurants and shops, Sunshine Baydream is in a great location for your holiday.
Year Purchased: 2013
About the owner: Our family purchased our beach cottage on Anna Maria Island, after vacationing on the island for the past five years. No matter where our travels have taken us, we always come back to AMI for the gorgeous sun, sand and sea. We've rented various spectacular homes throughout the years and settled on the quiet part of the island, the north end. We love the sparkling waters of the Gulf of Mexico and the sugar, white sand on the beaches of the Gulf and Tampa Bay.
Why the Owner Chose Anna Maria: After living abroad for several years and traveling the world, we knew we needed an escape to warm weather and sunshine, within a flights' distance. Anna Maria Island is a wonderfully, laid back, no big hotels, Island..which has the Gulf of Mexico on the West side of the island, and Tampa Bay at the east side of the island. You can have as much or as little 'action' at your fingertips. The locals are excited to share their piece of Paradise with visitors. Once your feet hit the sugar soft white sand of the beach, you won't want to put your shoes on again. The warm sunshine and cool breeze are exactly what a person needs to escape normal 'life'.
The Unique Benefits at this House: We fell in love with our beach cottage for its 250 square foot screened in elevated porch, overlooking Tampa Bay. Whether you are drinking your morning cup of coffee watching the sea, or relaxing in the evening with a cold drink, this porch allows you to sink into the overstuffed furniture and let your mind day dream. Even after sunset, the beauty of the swaying palm trees will take your breath away. And then there is the sensual smell of the sea breeze off the Bay. Soothing, relaxing and sure to please every holidaymaker.
If listening to hotel doors slam isn't your thing-you've found the perfect place to vacation in Anna Maria Island, especially at the north end of Anna Maria, where our cottage is located. The further north you move up the island, the more relaxed life becomes.
Anna Maria has also been named, 'One of America's Prettiest Town's, by Forbes magazine of August 2013. Forbes states, ' The entire city is a protected bird sanctuary, and don’t be surprised if you happen to meet a manatee during your morning swim.' Truly paradise, enough said!
